Two dorms subject to robberies

first_imgBurglars entered Lyons and Dillon Halls Sunday and stole computers, cell phones and personal items, said Dave Chapman, assistant director for Notre Dame Security Police (NDSP). The incidents were reported within two hours of each other, and the burglars did not force their way into the dorm or into rooms, he said. “How they got in [the dorms] is somebody had to let them in,” Chapman said. “They didn’t force their way in any of the rooms. The rooms were unlocked.” NDSP was not able to identify or catch the suspects, and Chapman said he believes it to be an isolated incident. “Every once in a while we have this happen,” he said. Chapman encouraged students to report anyone who suspiciously attempts to enter a dorm or is seen inside. “If someone tries to get in their dorm they don’t know or looks like they are tailgating them in, they should ask them, ‘Who are you here to see? Why are you here?” Chapman said. “Things like that.” He also encouraged students to call NDSP if they see anyone in dorm hallways that seems unfamiliar or out of place. “That’s what we’re going to need to catch these people,” he said. “We need the students’ help.”last_img read more

Bookmakers give mixed reactions to expanded 48-team FIFA World Cup

first_img Submit Share SBC Magazine Issue 10: Kaizen Gaming rebrand and focus for William Hill CEO August 25, 2020 ESI Digital – No Drama Please… Esports growth should be treated as business as usual  August 20, 2020 Share Related Articles StumbleUpon Betway and Dafabet grow La Liga sponsorship portfolios August 14, 2020 Bookmakers appear tepid on the prospect of an enlarged 48-team FIFA World Cup for 2026. Last week, the FIFA Council voted unanimously in favour of President Gianni Infantino’s expanded 48 team format, which drew criticism from multiple football stakeholders.At present, the expanded 48 team tournament will see an opening stage of 16 groups of three teams, with the top two teams progressing to an enlarged 32-team knockout round, adding an additional round of ‘knockouts’ to the existing World Cup format.Stating his case for expansion, Infantino detailed that a 50% enlarged World Cup would generate new audiences and expected higher revenues for FIFA members.  At a game level, Infantino and expansion supporters detailed that the ‘extra round of knockouts’ would generate ‘more exciting football’ for spectators.Nevertheless, critics have pointed that Infantino’s expansion will simply ‘water down’ the level of competition for World Cup 2026. Furthermore, there are concerns that spectators may lose interest in a low-quality World Cup.Alan Alger – BetwayAt an early stage of assessment, Alan Alger Betway’s Head of Communications noted caution when discussing an expanded format: “It’s hard to know which innovations and developments in the betting industry will be in place by 2026, so it’s difficult to make an accurate prediction about how the tournament will play out.”The additional round of knockout stages may look attractive to bookmakers, however Alger notes the importance of tournament quality for punter engagement.“The extra knockout matches from the round of 32 onwards will certainly produce a good tournament in terms of competitive betting, with four games a day likely to increase multiples. However, the increase in the number of teams qualifying for the tournament is undoubtedly going to lead to match-ups in the group stage that not many people are going to be interested in, and the betting may mirror that.”Anthony Cousins – UnibetFrom a trading and market perspective Unibet’s Head of Sportsbook Anthony Cousins believes that a peculiar format with smaller teams in stature may well play to a bookmaker’s advantage.“Of course, there will be lesser interest in some of the “minnow” matches,” he said. “However, these teams usually play international friendlies in the pre-tournament build up where many other matches also take place and cannibalise turnover, we would much rather see an important standalone match where the outcome means everything.”Cousins further added that critics of the 48-team format may have been too quick to dismiss teams as low-quality minnows: “We also shouldn’t presume that the teams will be minnows – the format means that teams such as England are far more likely to qualify and based on current FIFA rankings would include teams such as South Korea, Sweden, Denmark, Japan, Greece and Australia – teams with big tournament pedigrees.“Ultimately in international football, the “lesser” teams have become more competitive and the top teams less dominant which for bookmakers and football bettors makes the 48 team World Cup great news… just not so much for the football purist and non-bettors where the tournament is likely to drag on.”last_img read more

Herod’s Tomb Found

first_imgThe probable tomb of Herod the Great has been found, reported Haaretz a day before a scheduled press conference.  This is the King Herod who slaughtered the innocents of Bethlehem at the time of Christ’s birth after being visited by the wise men.  Scholars knew he was supposed to be buried at his fortress of Herodium.  Despite years of excavation, the sarcophagus had not been found till now.  Since no inscriptions have yet been found, full confirmation is pending.    For more details, see Arutz Sheva, Science Daily, BBC News, Science Now, National Geographic and EurekAlert, based on a press release from Hebrew University.  Todd Bolen has provided historical background on the Bible Places blog with additional links.  The AP story on Yahoo has a slide show of Herod’s hilltop fortress and palace.Any time something about a Bible character is discovered, it’s big news, and King Herod was a big character.  The paranoid megalomaniac was responsible for both monumental buildings and horrendous crimes.  Seeing the remains of his monuments at Caesarea Maritima, Herodium, Masada, Jericho and the Temple Mount underscores his genius for pulling off large and elaborate construction projects.    The Herodium, where his sarcophagus was found, is a crumbling ruin.  Yet a few miles north, in Bethlehem, on a silent night, another King was born.  Gentle as a Lamb, He changed the world forever.  Despite Herod’s cruel yet futile attempt to wipe out any competition, that King is alive in the hearts of millions today.  He didn’t take titles and make monuments to Himself.  He taught, He who would be greatest among you, let him be your servant (Matthew 23).  Seek first the kingdom of God, He said, and all these things will be added to you (Sermon on the Mount).  By humbling Himself unto death, He has become King of Kings, and Lord of Lords (Philippians 2, Revelation 19).    Within a couple of hours, you can tour Bethlehem, where a humble King was born and placed in a manger, then the Herodium, where about two years later a proud king was buried in a monument to himself.  Before Herod died he ordered leading men to be slaughtered so that there would be some mourning on the day of his death (fortunately, his sister prevented the order from being carried out).  Jesus died outside the gate of Jerusalem but gave life to His followers.  Herod’s monuments, impressive as they were, lie in ruins.  But 2000 years after Christ, the most elaborate buildings in the world ring with praises to Christ, the King.  What a contrast.  Which path are you on?  the way of Herod, or the way of the cross?  Jesus said, He who exalts himself will be humbled, but he who humbles himself will be exalted (Luke 14:11).(Visited 7 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
