Scout Gaming to launch fantasy sports in Mexico

first_imgDFS Scout Gaming is to enter the Mexican market for the first time after signing a partnership to provide its fantasy sports products to leading casino operator Logrand Entertainment Group.Logrand, which operates 14 casinos across Mexico, is planning to launch Scout’s B2B service via its online brand Strendus in the first half of 2019.Stockholm-listed Scout said it will add new leagues and sports for the Mexican market, where American football, basketball and Mexico’s Liga MX soccer league are the most popular verticals.Scout added that its revenue from the deal is dependent on performance, with income generated through a revenue share agreement. It described the deal as strategically important as it offers a route into a new market and the opportunity to entice more players and thus offer larger prize pools.Scout CEO Andreas Ternström said the company’s entry into Mexico aids its ambition of becoming the world’s leading B2B provider of fantasy sports products.“We are really pleased with this deal, making us enter the Mexican market,” Ternström explained. “We see big potential in the region and are proud to be chosen by Logrand which is one of the leading Mexican brands. Their ambition to build the top product offering aligns well with our ambition.”Scout is not required to obtain a Mexican licence, with the Strendus fantasy sports product allowed under Logrand’s permit.It has been a busy few months for Scout, which received a UK B2B licence in November. In the last year it has signed partnerships with operators such as Betsson, ComeOn and Dafabet.James Camilleri, Scout’s head of sales and general manager, told iGamingBusiness.com that the company’s first deal in Latin America is the precursor to further expansion in the region.“Currently we are not operational in other Latin American markets however in 2019 we are looking to grow aggressively in such markets,” he said.Logrand was established in 2005 and its casinos across Mexico offer 6,000 gaming terminals via locations in Cancun, Guadalajara and Monterrey.“The alliance that we made with Scout Gaming Group for establishing our fantasy sports offering, strengthens our commitment to provide our clients a quality service and high-level diverse online entertainment platform,” Logrand chief operating officer Lenin Castillo said. “We are sure that will see an expanding number of users and that with this partnership will strengthen our leading position in the industry.” Fantasy sports service provider to go live through new partnership with local casino operator Logrand’s iGaming brand Strendus 3rd January 2019 | By contenteditor Scout Gaming to launch fantasy sports in Mexico Regions: LATAM Mexico AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Email Address Topics: Sports betting Tech & innovation DFS Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Tags: Fantasy Sportslast_img read more

Michael Buerkel Hunn[Episcopal News Service] The Rev. Michael Buerkel Hunn, canon to Presiding Bishop Michael Curry for ministry within the Episcopal Church, was elected May 5 to become the next bishop of the Diocese of the Rio Grande at the Cathedral of St. John, Albuquerque, New Mexico.The slate of three candidates included Hunn; the Rev. Lucinda Ashby, canon to the ordinary for the Diocese of Idaho; and the Rev. Simon Charles Justice, rector of Church of the Good Samaritan, Corvallis, Oregon.Hunn was elected on the third ballot. The diocesan constitution and canons require a majority, determined by the total number of those eligible to vote, in the lay and clergy orders on the same ballot.Of the total (103) eligible canonically resident clergy, 52 represented a quorum and were required for an election. Of the total (204) eligible lay delegates, 103 represented a quorum and were required for an election.Hunn received 55 clergy votes and 141 lay votes.After the bishop-elect receives the canonically required consent of a majority of the Episcopal Church’s diocesan standing committees and bishops with jurisdiction, Curry will ordain and consecrate the new bishop Nov. 3 in Albuquerque.In accepting the election, Hunn expressed his thanks to Bishop Michael L. Vono, the current bishop, for his leadership of the diocese. “I feel a great sense of humility to be following you as God’s servant in the Diocese of the Rio Grande,” Hunn said. “I know you love your people, and I want you to know I will love them faithfully and care for them with every capacity God gives me. I am also grateful to begin this ministry at this moment — when you have done so much to heal, reconcile and build trust over the course of your episcopate.”Hunn also told the members of the diocese that he feels “such love and gratitude as we look forward to our future together. I am giving thanks for so much we cannot yet see — the relationships we will build and the ministry we will share — the joy, tears and opportunities. I am also feeling at least some nervous expectation.”The Diocese of the Rio Grande encompasses 154,000 square miles, including the state of New Mexico and far West Texas from the Pecos River to the border with Mexico along the Rio Grande River, and has 63 congregations with 15,000 members.Hunn said that he and his wife, the Rev. Meg Buerkel Hunn, assistant rector at Christ Church in Raleigh, North Carolina, “are eager to begin making a home among you in a few short months.” The Buerkel Hunns have three children, Dexter, Murphy, and Dosie.The bishop-elect grew up in New Mexico and Texas. In 20 years of ordained ministry, he has served as a parish priest, school chaplain, college chaplain and canon to Curry when the latter was bishop of the Diocese North Carolina. In his current job, he supports the presiding bishop’s ministry, serves as director of communications and oversees other key departments. He led the transition team as Curry became presiding bishop and led a staff-wide restructure and culture-transformation process, according to his biography on the Rio Grande website.While he was a canon to the ordinary in North Carolina, he designed and led diocesan systems in the areas of congregational support and development, youth ministry, pastoral response, transition ministry, clergy discipline, misconduct prevention training, priestly ordination process and conflict transformation.Hunn is also a lecturer, keynote speaker and preacher on subjects such as public speaking, nonviolent communication, canon law, stewardship and nonviolent approaches to conversations about race.Ordained in 1996, Hunn first served The Kent School in Connecticut as chaplain, head baseball coach and chair of the theology department. He went on to serve as senior associate rector of the Church of the Holy Comforter in Kenilworth, Illinois, and as Episcopal chaplain to Davidson College and associate rector of St. Alban’s, Davidson, North Carolina.He holds degrees from Middlebury College (Bachelor of Arts in history and religion) and Cambridge University (Master of Arts in theology) and a Certificate of Advanced Theological Study from Seabury-Western Theological Seminary.

Most parent-friendly charities revealed by Guardian

first_imgHowever, the Guardian described the charity sector as surprisingly mediocre at supporting its working parents given its underpinning of social values. The paper says that even at the better performing charities maternity pay was nothing special, or had strings attached.Cancer Research UK came into the ‘Poor in sector’ category apparently because of its ‘early return option’ which gives mothers the option of returning to work 17 weeks after starting maternity leave and having 17 weeks at full pay, rather than 13 weeks’ at full pay and 26 weeks on statutory maternity pay. Other charities that don’t make the grade for the Guardian are British Heart Foundation and RNLI. An ‘out of the running’ category lists Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie Cancer Care and RSPCA. Tagged with: Management AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Save the Children UK is the most parent-friendly charity in the UK to work for, according to a new survey by the Guardian which covers a range of sectors individually.Also deemed ‘above average’ are the NSPCC, Oxfam, RSPB, Wellcome Trust, National Trust, Unicef UK and Leonard Cheshire.Save the Children hits the top spot because it offers better SMP arrangements than the legal requirements plus childcare vouchers and flexible working.

RSF urges Kosovar authorities to protect journalist after death threats

Kosovar investigative journalist assaulted in Pristina Help by sharing this information to go further KosovoEurope – Central Asia Condemning abuses Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns the death threats, insults and baseless accusations that have been levelled against Leonard Kerquki, the editor-in-chief of the Gazeta Express website, since a documentary he directed was premiered on the site on 23 October. The documentary, for which Kerquki also did the voiceover, addresses a rarely discussed aspect of the Kosovo War of 1998-2000 – atrocities against Serbian and Bosniak minorities. The day after it was screened, a photomontage of Kerquki with his forehead riddled by bullet holes in Serbian colours was posted on the Facebook page of the Kosovo Liberation Army (UCK), a paramilitary group that opposed the Serbs during the war. The UCK is accused in the documentary of carrying out war crimes against civilians in the name of Kosovar patriotism. “We condemn this public lynching of Leonard Kerquki and we call on the authorities to quickly adopt measures to protect this journalist and his colleagues,” RSF programme director Lucie Morillon said. “We also call for an investigation with aim of identifying those responsible for these threats and bringing them to trial.” The documentary was the second in a new series of documentaries and investigative reports about Kosovo’s contemporary history recently launched by Gazeta Express, an Albanian-language news portal. Kosovo is ranked 90th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.

I couldn’t be prouder of a group of kids. … Like I said at the board meeting the other night, they have had so many accomplishments. They’re involved in so many extracurricular activities; they hold jobs,” Marquez said.“What I said the other day was I love this group of kids because they’re more than just a GPA. They are already contributing members to our society because all of the programs and all the different volunteer work and charities that they’ve been involved in. (It’s) truly an amazing group of kids and I’m truly blessed to have been a part of their last year here at Odessa High.”He estimated the senior class at 600 students.Marquez said his first year has been a great experience.He added that he wants to show students that anything is possible if students work hard and challenge themselves.Marquez noted that education is something no one can take away from you.“And ultimately, it’s their ticket to many, many opportunities in the future,” he said.More Information Facebook Pinterest Nathan Sanchez-Juarez and their family share lunch.
