The new onscreen look will include virtual advertisements from brands local to where the races take place. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeGrammarlyAdvertisement Avoid Grammatical Errors with This Helpful Browser ExtensionGrammarlyUndocio.comUnlocking the Success of Digital Transformation with Active Intelligencecio.comUndoE! OnlineTLC’s So Freaking Cheap Takes Penny-Pinching to the ExtremeE! OnlineUndo“David Hill, who really built Fox Sports, is an adviser to help, as we go into the next year, launch some innovations and enhancements to the programming package to really bring something fresh to the marketplace,” has quoted F1’s chief executive Chase Carey as saying.Carey is hoping Hill will help to revitalize F1’s broadcasts after a steady decline in audiences over the past decade. In March, Britain’s Independent newspaper revealed that last year F1 attracted 390 million viewers which was a fall of 207 million from a decade earlier.“We do a professional job today but I think too much of what we do is probably not that different than it was ten years ago, whether that’s graphics, sound or camera angles,” said Carey. “We need to make sure that our product has an innovation and an energy that excites and engages fans.”Carey was the chief executive and chairman of Fox Television between 1994 and 2000 and went on to become executive vice-chairman of News Corp itself until June 2016. He had high praise for Hill when he left Fox and said “for nearly thirty years, David has defined excellence in sports television in the same way [former ABC Sports president] Roone Arledge did in the 1970’s and 1980’s. David is a true leader, visionary and once-in-a-lifetime force of nature,” according to the Forbes report.Hill brings with him over three decades of experience in television broadcast technology with the launches of  Australia’s Nine Network and Rupert Murdoch-owned Sky Television in the UK in the 1980s. He has started out working for the Nine Network in the 1980s and helped to launch Sky Television in Britain in 1989. As president of the Murdoch-owned Fox Sports from 1993 to 2000 Hill had an introduction of cutting-edge on-air innovations. These included the use of a glowing hockey puck and a first down line superimposed on the gridiron in NFL matches.Hill left Fox to form his own production company in June 2015 and soon landed one of the top producing jobs in live television when he was named co-producer of the 2016 Academy Awards. His road into auto racing came through fellow Murdoch veteran Carey who became F1’s chief executive in January following the takeover of the series by Liberty Media Corp.

Stock market crash: I’d invest £10k in these 2 cheap FTSE 100 shares today to make a million

Stock market crash: I’d invest £10k in these 2 cheap FTSE 100 shares today to make a million I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

The FTSE 100 stock market crash has caused a number of high-quality companies to trade at relatively low prices. Although their prospects may continue to be unclear over the coming months, they have the potential to recover and catalyse your portfolio’s performance in the long run.With that in mind, here are two large-cap shares that could be worth buying today with £10k, or any other amount. They have the potential to boost your chances of making a million as the economy and stock market gradually recover from the recent crash.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…FTSE 100 housebuilder Barratt DevelopmentsBarratt’s (LSE: BDEV) share price has underperformed the FTSE 100 since the start of 2020. It’s down by 27%, versus a 20% fall for the index. This suggests investors are maintaining a cautious stance towards the business while a weak economic outlook persists.However, the company’s recent update highlighted its financial strength, as well as its positive plans to reopen. This could mean it’s able to deliver improving financial performance as factors such as the stamp duty holiday and lower interest rates cause demand for new homes to rise.In fact, the business has seen strong interest among potential buyers since reopening its sales sites. This indicates it may now offer good value for money while its shares continue to include a wide margin of safety.While other FTSE 100 shares may have a more resilient outlook than Barratt, the company’s past performance suggests it has long-term recovery potential. Buying it now, while it continues to trade significantly below its recent share price highs, could prove to be a logical move that increases your chances of making a million.British LandAnother FTSE 100 stock that’s underperformed the index since the start of the year is British Land (LSE: BLND). The commercial property business has recorded a share price fall of 40% in 2020. Recent operational updates have highlighted the difficulties it faces.Around 64% of its retail units were open as at the end of June. Although that figure could rise over the coming months as lockdown measures ease, the shift from in-store to online could be catalysed by the coronavirus pandemic. As such, demand for the company’s retail units could come under pressure.Despite this, British Land could offer long-term growth potential. It has a relatively diverse portfolio of assets and a sound financial position that could enable it to adapt to changing trends within the commercial property market. This may mean that while further difficulties may be ahead for investors, there’s turnaround potential on offer over the long run.As such, now could be the right time to buy a slice of it within a portfolio of FTSE 100 shares. Over time, their current low valuations could benefit from an improving economic outlook and stronger investor sentiment. That could mean posting recoveries to increase your chances of building a seven-figure portfolio.

The gloves are off – Stade Francais boxing

first_imgWednesday Feb 6, 2008 The gloves are off – Stade Francais boxing I’m not sure exactly what it is about the French Top 14 league, but for whatever reason, these guys have fist fights extremely often compared with other professional leagues around the world.In most places if a punch is thrown, they’re off and more than likely suspended for a few weeks. In France, and correct me if I’m off the mark here, but it seems that pretty much anything goes.What we see in this clip are fights between Stade Francais and Toulouse, Biarritz, and Montpellier respectively.The last brawl, from this season against Montpellier, was pretty much disgraceful. A massive fight between virtually all the players resulted in the two hookers getting sent off.AFTER being sent off, it started up again, with two tough front rowers exchanging numerous blows before the rest of the team joined in again.Crazy stuff, but it does make for interesting viewing.

New Zealand win England series 2-0 with victory in Dunedin

first_imgSunday Jun 15, 2014 New Zealand win England series 2-0 with victory in Dunedin New Zealand wrapped up their with England by winning the second Test 28-27 in front of a capacity crowd at the Forsyth Barr stadium in Dunedin on Saturday. The All Blacks retain the Hilary Shield, with one match left to play in Hamilton next weekend. England started well, scoring the first try of the game through Marland Yarde, but had to wait until the final ten minutes to cross again. New Zealand scored three tries of their own, through Ben Smith, Julian Savea and Ma’a Nonu.In the first half a breakaway chance for Manu Tuilagi down the right wing could have extended England’s early lead, but he wasn’t able to break the cover defence, or find a supporting player.With dominant possession and territory, the All Blacks took their chances and with the score at 28-13 at one stage, the game was out of reach. An injury time try to Chris Ashton – from an excellent Tuilagi offload – added gloss to the final score, but the win was already secured.“We certainly played better than in the first Test but we needed to because England were a lot better, too,” said New Zealand coach Steve Hansen. “It was a great Test match. The ball was thrown around and everyone would have left satisfied with what they saw.Stuart Lancaster’s England side are in a good position ahead of next year’s Rugby World Cup, with a good squad system developing. “Scoring three tries in Dunedin is not a bad return so we are moving in the right direction but we didn’t quite finish the deal.”Skipper Chris Robshaw said that they’ll aim to finish the tour on a high, despite two losses.“It’s a result-based industry and unfortunately we’ve had two losses and lost the series. But we’ve got another match to come next week and we’re going to come out fighting again.”England play the Crusaders on Tuesday before the final Test in Hamilton on Saturday.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting…last_img read more

With affordable health care the issue, students, workers support Harvard strike

first_imgFood service workers arrested in civil disobedience during Harvard University Strike.Workers around the world are watching as Harvard University Dining Service workers take on the multibillion-dollar institution, demanding “No cuts in health care” and “Health care is a human right!”The 750 workers represented by UNITE HERE Local 26 walked out on Oct. 5. Since then, calls, emails, letters and articles of support have poured in from students, workers and faculty in South Africa, Japan, Brazil, Ireland, Russia and other European countries, as well as the U.S.Ed Childs, chief shop steward of Local 26, who has worked at Harvard for 43 years, explains why: “Health care is a civil rights issue. The Harvard Corporation and Board of Overseers who run Harvard University are pushing an agenda to undermine preventive medical care. This is about austerity.“It would cost very little for Harvard to retain our current health insurance plan, as we are asking. But Harvard wants deductibles and increased fees for visits to emergency rooms, doctors and hospitals, as well as tests. This stops people from consulting a doctor when they have a cold or need diabetic testing, or when their children have a fever, since they can’t afford it. Then, they have to be hospitalized, ending up costing more. Capitalism has no interest in the long-term perspective of health care for the workers.”Some 60 percent of HUDS workers are immigrants and an equal percentage are women. Luisa Mosso comes from Cape Verde and has worked in the Kennedy School of Government dining hall for nine years. She told Workers World: “I have asthma. I spent all day this past Friday going to four doctors for treatment. It cost me $60. I can’t afford this and HU wants to increase co-pays and fees even higher each time we see a doctor. We do not get paid during the summer. People are forced to choose between eating or going to a doctor. How can we work if we are not healthy?”Student support for workersStudents from Harvard Medical School and the School of Public Health have been active and vocal in support of the strike. Two of them wrote: “As medical students at Harvard, we were deeply troubled to learn that our university was proposing changes to dining workers’ health plans that would make essential health care unaffordable. …“The affordability of health insurance plans comes down to two factors: premiums and out-of-pocket costs. How affordable are employer plans? A team of Harvard medical students compared the plan Harvard proposed for the dining workers to what would be available on the Massachusetts health exchange [set up under the Affordable Care Act to facilitate the purchase of health insurance by individuals and families].“For a family of three earning $30,000, the Harvard plan requires an employee to contribute a premium of $233 a month, while the health exchange has plans that require no premiums at all.  Harvard Medical School faculty and the World Health Organization have defined any health spending over 10 percent of annual income as a catastrophic expenditure. The Harvard plan comes perilously close to this with premiums alone. The rotten cherry on the top?  Harvard’s plan also has higher co-pays than the exchange plans.“It is shocking that these low-income workers would be better off financially if they were not offered employer-sponsored insurance.” (StatNews, Sept. 30)The Harvard Corporation and Board of Overseers have ties to Citigroup, Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, Merck, Google, Abbott Labs and CVS, among others. Striking workers have confronted them in their offices and on campus.Nine strikers arrested in Harvard SquareOn Oct. 14, some 500 strikers and their supporters marched on Harvard Square during rush hour and shut it down.  As the crowd chanted, banged drums and blew whistles, nine women strikers sat down in the middle of the street and were arrested. Also arrested were the head of Local 26 and the chief negotiator.One of the women arrested told WW that she direly needs a knee replacement and is in constant pain from standing on her feet all day. But she cannot afford the operation. When she struggled to sit down in the street, the crowd roared.The workers know that the struggle for quality health care is global and united. Local 26 strikers have supported and spoken at rallies to change Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples’ Day, in support of Standing Rock and against pipeline spills and water poisoning. In turn, Native students at Harvard have spoken at strike rallies.HUDS strikers are holding the line for quality, affordable health care, and they’re doing it for workers and oppressed the world over who suffer from the brutalities of capitalist and imperialist profit making in sweatshops and factories, fields and fast food restaurants.Victory to the HUDS strike! Health care is a human right!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Haitians to march on Trump

first_imgA number of Haitian groups and progressives came together here on Jan. 13 in the office of the newspaper Haïti-Liberté to organize rapid responses to Trump’s rabidly crude, racist declarations and the vicious, cruel decisions that are entwined with his words.It was a long and fruitful discussion that started with two minutes of silence for the 350,000 Haitians who died in the Jan. 12, 2010, earthquake.The militants involved, many with deep experience in organizing, felt they needed an ongoing vehicle to push Trump back, one with some common political principles and a structure.  While their base is the Haitian community in New York and New Jersey, they noted that Trump is creating the same problems for all immigrant groups, in particular Salvadorans and Africans.This desire to reach out was clearly expressed by the fact that the meeting was conducted in English, with translations from Creole as needed.The groups picked the name of this new, ongoing organization very carefully. It is the “1804 Movement for All Immigrants.” The year 1804 marked the final victory of the Haitian Revolution against French colonial rule and the definitive end of slavery in Haiti. “All Immigrants” means especially to include Salvadoran and African immigrants and all immigrants of color targeted by Trump’s racist invective and decisions.Knowing full well that for Trump to apologize is as likely as his developing compassion, the meeting still felt that he should make an apology and made that demand one of the group’s principles of unity.Another principle addresses the U.S. government’s refusal to extend temporary protective status to 60,000 Haitians and 200,000 Salvadorans, who are being forced to leave the U.S. The solution is simple — change “temporary” to “permanent.”To avoid this movement becoming dominated by bourgeois politicians, many said it needed to be anti-imperialist and anti-capitalist.The 1804 Movement for All Immigrants wants to have a rapid impact.
