Back of the net! Your Move signs up to become English Football League sponsor

first_imgLSL estate agency chain Your Move has signed up to become an official sponsor of the English Football League (EFL) and as part of the deal its Hitchin branch was visited yesterday by former England, Liverpool and Leicester player Emile Heskey.Heskey told The Negotiator that he has not used Your Move in the past but had used agents a lot as he moved around playing with different clubs. “I wasn’t too bad and only moved every four or so years but some footballers move every year, so I was lucky,” he said. “But I’ll be using Your Move in the future now when I next move.”Due to kick off in January, the deal will also enable Your Move to call itself an Official Supporter of the league as well as enjoy extensive digital advertising rights across the EFL network and services.Your Move will also be given access to events including local football festivals near its branches and promotional rights at five Wembley Finals during the 2019/20 fixture calendar.“We know that many of our customers, and potential customers, are passionate about football and we are delighted to be able to share that passion with them,” says Oliver Blake, Managing Director for Your Move (left).“As well as being involved with the big, iconic football events like the Carabao Cup Final we are particularly looking forward to organising local football festivals and getting involved in important community events like the Utilita Kids & Girls Cup.”EFL Chief Commercial Officer Ben Wright says Your Move is a natural fit with for his organisation because “millions of fans across our network will be buying, selling or renting properties across the UK each year”.Your Move’s sponsorship is the most high profile football partnership with an industry organisation since Allsop & Allsop became a Coventry City shirt sponsor earlier this year and, before that, Zoopla backed West Bromwich Albion during the early noughties.Many smaller football clubs also have agent backing including Southport, Enfield Town, Aylesbury, Leyton Orient, Dundee United and Guisborough Town, to name a few.Emile Hesky Your Move December 12, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

The Great British Bake Off: Episode 3

first_imgDesserts is “stressed” spelt backwards, and that was certainly how the remaining 11 contestants felt as they strove to shine in the third week of The Great British Bake Off. The Bake Off squirrel has been replaced by the Bake Off duck, and a burglary took place. Baking: it is no mere trifle.The bakers survived cake and bread, and now they had to handle multi-tasking, showing off different skills at the same time. As Paul Hollywood gleefully told viewers, “It’s extremely difficult.” Thank you, Paul.The Signature Bake required a trifle combining biscuit, cake, jelly or custard in defined layers. A thick custard was ordered, causing Paul to denounce any trifle that dared to contain a “slack” variant of the yellow liquid. Mark’s came up short, as did Beca’s, but it was Deborah who took the biscuit by accidentally using Howard’s custard as her own. An elbow in his muffins one week, and commandeered custard the next – as last night’s Twitter population typed in unison, #PoorHoward.Taking a step back in trifle time, Mel Giedroyc explored the origins of the dessert, and explained how it was revolutionised in the Georgian era. No longer the sweet treat of the aristocracy, it was made accessible to the masses. Anyone care to try cow’s foot jelly?This week’s Technical Challenge welcomed ‘Floating Islands’, and created lumps of meringue of various shapes and sizes. The contestants certainly looked at sea as they tried to produce a stiff meringue, as well as spun sugar for decoration. The queen of cakes, Mary Berry, commented: “I think they’ll have trouble.”A mixed collection of meringues followed. Glenn’s were a “good effort”, Ruby’s didn’t look right, but still managed to taste “quite nice”, while Ali’s were “about right”. Rob came second and Glenn first.As always, we concluded with the Showstopper. Mary and Paul demanded 24 evenly baked and equal-sized petits fours that complemented each other. The winner of the Technical Challenge, Glenn, tickled Paul’s fancy by producing Billionaire Bouchées and Orange Financiers.Ruby opted for the “winging it” tactic and produced lemon shortbread and white chocolate seashells, and blackberry and chocolate layer cakes. Philosophy exams aside, her petit fours impressed both judges, with Mary exclaiming that they were “a bit of alright”.These tiny treats proved to be the undoing of Mark and Deborah who were both dismissed from the Bake Off tent.Christine was crowned star baker, for her inventive piña colada trifle and brandy-snap cones, conceived via a smooth wooden tool devised by her husband.Next week the remaining nine bakers will offer us a piece of their pie, and will battle it out to become the queen (or king) of tarts.The Great British Bake Off is screened on BBC2 every Tuesday, at 8pm.last_img read more

Conboy and cabinet host student town hall, provide campus updates

first_imgThe Student Affairs Office — in coordination with College President Katie Conboy and her cabinet — hosted a virtual town hall for students Thursday evening. The event was the first in a series of panels designed to give Belles updates about the upcoming semester on campus.Interim vice president for student affairs Gloria Jenkins began the evening by introducing President Conboy, who expressed her hope that students were gearing up to return to campus.“We want you to know we’re thinking about you, and we’ve missed you on campus,” she said. “We hope you had a great holiday season, and … that the break has been restful and has given you a chance to reflect to on things that are important to you at the College. We also hope you’re getting a little restless to leave home and get back to us.”Conboy also took the opportunity to introduce her cabinet to students who might not be familiar with those who hold leadership positions at the College. New members include interim vice president for mission Dr. Molly Gower and interim vice president for college relations Libby Koultourides.Vice president for enrollment management Mona Bowe reminded students of the importance of pre-matriculation testing procedures.“We really feel that the closest we can get to starting the semester with zero COVID cases on campus, the higher the likelihood that we’ll be able to complete the semester successfully,” she said.Bowe also cautioned students not to take their PCR test more than a week before their scheduled move-in date.“A quick reminder: If you ask for a test kit from Global 7 … hold on to that test kit, until seven days before you’re scheduled to move in,” Bowe said. “You don’t want to test too early.”According to Bowe, all information regarding testing will be posted and updated on the Saint Mary’s Live Learn Work website.Bowe also announced that surveillance testing will start for students approved for early move in the week of Jan. 25. All other students with regular move in times will enter the surveillance testing pool the week of Feb. 8.College official Shari Rodriguez informed students that the same health and safety practices will continue to be in place for the spring semester.“We were able to stay together and to finish [last] semester together because of your incredible work and your ability to follow some of the best guidelines that we have — check up, mask up, wash up and backup,” Rodriguez said. “So, all together, we were able to complete the semester successfully and we are going to adopt those same practices and keep them going.”Bowe added that requirements for social gatherings will also initially remain the same as the fall semester.Provost and Senior Vice President Titi Ufomata urged students to finish registering for classes so the College can make the necessary adjustments to seating.In addition, Ufomata described the academic modalities that will be in place for the spring semester.“Most of our classes will be taught using the modified face to face,” Ufomata said. “Some classes [will be] hybrid … and then the third modality is online. As we did last semester, even with the online courses, the faculty will make sure to tune in and contact you directly at least weekly.”Ufomata also emphasized that all student services will be available for students to use.Jenkins informed students that the College is working to create spaces for students to safely gather during the winter.“We’re looking to create a winter space for you — something like was created for you for the fall and the beginning of the school year,” she said. “There’s the possibility that we may have ice skating, we’re looking into that. We’re looking for ways for you to make use of the snow that might come our way, walking around campus when there’s snow or it’s cold [and] trying to find ways to make that fun.”The Cabinet also announced details for upcoming campus events.Executive Director of Inclusion and Equity Redgina Hill spoke about a virtual celebration to commemorate Martin Luther King Jr. next Monday at 2 p.m. ET.In addition, Koultourides explained the upcoming 24-Hour Donor Challenge on Feb. 25.“Thousands of alumnae, parents, friends from all over the country and really all over the world, [will] show their support for Saint Mary’s and for all of you, so keep your eyes out,” she said. “We’ll have emails coming out to you and announcements on how you can be involved, and some fun things that will be happening.”Director of Athletics Julie Schroeder-Biek told students that they can use the Angela Fitness Center as soon as they are cleared to return to campus by the Health and Counseling Center.“Students, once you are cleared by Health and Counseling, we welcome you guys back to join us in the fitness center if you’d like,” she said. “Right now, we’re doing 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. And then when you guys get back, we’re going to throw in some afternoon hours to just so you have a little bit more range. We’re thinking about 4:30 p.m.to 6:30 p.m., along with 11:00 a.m. to 1 p.m.”At the end of the town hall, the cabinet took questions from students.Responding to an inquiry about new coronavirus strains, Bowe assured students that the College will align with all safety guidelines to recommendations from local health officials.“We do know that [the new strain] has proven to be a little bit more challenging because it can be spread a lot faster, so we will maintain all the protocols we put in place on sanitation and cleaning between classes on public areas,” Bowe said. “If at any point in time the county the state or the CDC changed their recommendations to make them stronger, we will follow those as well.”Vice president for strategy and planning Dana Strait fielded questions about campus dining in the new semester.Strait noted that all safety protocols in the dining hall will remain the same, but the College is looking into heating outdoor dining venues. In addition, the College will soon provide students details to new Campus Dining enhancements.“We’re very close to activating GrubHub for our own campus so that you could use your flex points to order from the cafe, and then swing by and pick it up so you don’t have to wait in line which we felt was really important especially under COVID conditions,” Strait said. “We have an ID machine, that is already been installed on campus, so we don’t have issues with your ID cards like we did last semester. … And then lastly, there will be an expansion of the Belles at Home program so those meals that could be picked up and cooked elsewhere, so that they are more available, not just for on campus students with kitchens, but also for students who are off campus.”According to Strait, Murphy’s and Spes Unica Cafes will remain closed until the fall, but new menu options are being explored at each location.Tags: COVID-19, Dana Strait, Gloria Jenkins, Julie Schroeder-Biek, Libby Koultourides, Molly Gower, pre-matriculation testing, president katie conboy, Redgina Hill, Spring 2021, surveillance testing, Titilayo Ufomatalast_img read more

From Bankruptcy, Stronger Coal Industry Rivals

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Dan Lowrey for SNL:Publicly traded U.S. coal producers that have managed to stay afloat amid stricter regulations, cheap natural gas and warmer weather, now face the additional challenge of rivals emerging from restructuring relieved of debt burdens and operating at lower costs.While that will toughen competition, analysts say most firms that avoided bankruptcy court so far are likely to continue to avert it at least in the short term.Moody’s senior credit analyst Anna Zubets-Anderson told S&P Global Market Intelligence that remaining publicly traded coal producers are rated by Moody’s as “at risk,” but that because their debt loads are less than the major producers in bankruptcy, most of them are unlikely to file bankruptcy this year.Beyond an extremely challenging operating environment, she said, they face the prospect of larger competitors emerging from bankruptcy court with a streamlined capital structure and a far more manageable debt load. “Part of the problem is that companies that emerge from Chapter 11 will have smaller debt burdens,” she said. “Those that filed will come out in a better position to compete,” leaving those that haven’t filed “disadvantaged.”Full article ($): Remaining publicly traded coal miners to face a leaner competition From Bankruptcy, Stronger Coal Industry Rivalslast_img read more

Uruguayan Navy Implements Moodle System for Distance Education

first_img In its academic courses, the Uruguayan Navy has begun to make use of the Moodle system, a platform that enables the development of distance-education formats and the establishment of interpersonal relationships between students and teachers and that generates a space for the analysis and discussion of academic and professional issues. At this time, the technology is being applied to the delivery of three courses: research methodology, individual research, and teacher training, which trains instructors to improve their performance in the Comprehensive System of Naval Education. The Naval War College (Escuela de Guerra Naval) plans to implement this platform gradually, with a major qualitative leap being the delivery of the Command Course, which is taken by lieutenants for promotion to lieutenant commander and is now fully functional through the exchange of emails between students and teachers. This system will permit the Uruguayan Navy to move to the forefront of the educational changes underway around the world. At the same time, officers will be able to receive a higher-quality and more practical education, since they will not have to attend in person all the classes held at the War College.
