Topics: Sports betting Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter The International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA), the integrity monitoring body formerly known as ESSA, has reported a year-on-year decline in suspicious betting alerts for 2019. 29th January 2020 | By contenteditor Sports betting The International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA), the integrity monitoring body formerly known as ESSA, has reported a year-on-year decline in suspicious betting alerts for 2019.A total of 183 alerts across 12 different sports were reported to authorities last year, down 31% from 267 in 2018.Tennis was again the sport of most concern to the IBIA, generating 101 reports for the year, though this represented a 43% year-on-year decline.Football followed in a distant second with 49 alerts, then basketball with just eight alerts and table tennis with five alerts. Volleyball and ice hockey attracted four alerts each, while esports, badminton and handball, each saw three alerts. Horse racing, pool and beach volleyball had just one alert each in 2019.“The decline in alerts is very welcome, especially as this is primarily a result of an improved level of integrity in ITF tennis, which has been the subject of particular scrutiny in recent years,” IBIA chief executive Khalid Ali said.“However, there remains a clear threat from criminals intent on manipulating sport to defraud operators. Such illicit organised and targeted action has an impact on the reputation and financial well-being of sports and reputable betting operators alike.”Europe was responsible for the majority of reports, with the IBIA filing 87 alerts throughout the course of the year. Some 33 alerts were in relation to tennis, with football just behind on 32 alerts, including eight from the UK.In Asia, 52 alerts were registered in 2019, 34 of which were related to suspicious betting activity surrounding tennis. A further 10 alerts were linked to football, with three each for volleyball and basketball.A total of 15 alerts were registered in Africa, 10 of which were for tennis, while the 13 alerts flagged in North America were all in relation to suspicious betting on tennis. The IBIA also filed 13 alerts in America, nine of which were for tennis and the other four for football.“We continue to work closely with sports and our members to reduce that threat and to identify and punish such corruption, utilising the world’s largest operator-run and customer data led integrity system,” Ali said.“Our rebranding and global repositioning in 2019 has aided our expansion with operators increasingly recognising the value and business necessity of engaging in collective action to protect their products against the loss of revenue resulting from betting corruption.”The IBIA report comes after the Tennis Integrity Unit, the sport’s anti-corruption body, this month revealed it received 138 reports of suspicious activity in 2019, the lowest annual amount since its integrity data was first made public in 2015.The total for the 12-month period was also 47.7% less than the 264 alerts that were raised in 2018.

But that isn’t the view of Lewis Moody, the England captain who missed the whole championship with a knee injury.“No one involved with England is happy with how we played against Ireland, and the players are rightly frustrated, but I’m proud of what they achieved and they should be too,” says Moody. “We recognise how tough the Six Nations is to win. The side has come on so much. If 12 months ago you’d said we’d have won in Australia, beaten the Wallabies by a record margin and won the Six Nations title we’d have been very happy with that. Clearly we have a long way to go but we must recognise that England, under Martin Johnson, are moving in the right direction.”“This was a tough Six Nations so we must be delighted to win the trophy. It’s the manner in which we lost to Ireland that is so frustrating. It’s easy to be down and negative but I’m certainly not and I hope England’s fans can also be proud of what we have achieved.”Moody, who when fit will be confirmed as England’s long-term captain, can’t wait to link back up with Johnno and the players at the start of July, when their World Cup camp kicks off. “The biggest thing I’ll take from the 2011 Six Nations is the way players have been able to come in and look like they’ve been around for ages,” Moody says.“I’ll remember it as the championship when Alex Corbisiero and Tom Wood made their debuts and played like seasoned internationals.”“And let’s not forget we have others like Tom Croft, Andrew Sheridan and Riki Flutey to come back to full fitness. We need to be positive when we meet up to start the run-in to the World Cup and that will be the case as there’s such a good spirit in the squad, a great atmosphere.” England’s title was one of three for the nation as they became the first country to win senior, U20 and women’s titles in the same season – the women and U20s with Grand Slams. “That is some achievement,” says Moody. “I’m delighted for all of them. We’ve already seen players emerge quickly from the U20s into the senior side and looking at the strength in depth in the Aviva Premiership it’s clear to me that this will continue.”The women picked up their fifth Grand Slam in six years while the U20s thumped Ireland 41-15 in Athlone to secure their clean sweep. In 18-year-old George Ford England have a star in the making; similarly with Harlequins lock Charlie Matthews, who looks like a younger Courtney Lawes. Says Ford: “One of our season objectives was to win the Grand Slam, and that’s what we’ve done. It’s not being arrogant, it’s being confident and pushing ourselves to be the best we can.”One thing’s for sure. With Martin Johnson at the helm, being pushed is something England players will have to endure for many years to come.This article appeared in the May 2011 issue of Rugby World Magazine.Find a newsagent that sells Rugby World in the UK ATHLONE, IRELAND – MARCH 18: England captain Alex Gray (trophy) and his players celebrate with the trophy following their team’s 46-15 victory during the Under 20’s Six Nations Championship match between Ireland U20 and England U20 at Dubarry Park on March 18, 2011 in Athlone, Ireland.

SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Weed Control This Year for Better Control in Coming Years By Andy Eubank – Apr 25, 2018 Pre-emerge-and-post-herbicidesStart clean and stay clean is a motto that will lead to good results if it also becomes a motto on the farm. The clean refers to weed free fields which can best be accomplished with pre-emergent herbicides layered with residual applications during the season. BASF technical marketing manager Daniel Waldstein says that approach certainly helps max out yield potential come harvest.“But it also minimizes weed escapes, so really what we’re trying to get after there is to reduce the weed seed bank for the future. So, what we do this year has an impact on subsequent years as well,” he told HAT.The pre-emergent application also helps improve the margin for error on post emergent applications later in the growing season. Waldstein says waterhemp and Palmer amaranth are two familiar examples.Daniel Waldstein,“Those weeds can grow up to an inch or two per day, so in reality if you get a few rainy days you can go from no weeds to weeds over 4 inches, which is our target height where we have best success, for inch or less. You can go through that pretty quickly and then you’re playing catchup throughout the season. So, the preemergent herbicides really give us a great opportunity to start out clean and then it gives us a better opportunity for successful weed management throughout the season.”Waldstein says that 4-inch or less target for tackling those weeds compares to the width of a credit card. BASF is working to bring flexible products to market, and an example is Armezon PRO corn herbicide. He says it can be applied from pre-emergence all the way to 30-inch tall corn, a real advantage if it’s tough to get back in the field for post treatment during rainy periods.Armezon PRO only needs a quarter inch of rainfall to activate, and BASF is now offering an online tool to plan your application. The website https://reliableactivation.com/ can tell you if your weed control herbicide is likely to work based on current weather models.For the second year BASF is offering Zidua PRO for soybeans, an all-in-one-jug solution, according to Waldstein, helping farmers eliminate their cocktail mix guessing game.Much more with Waldstein is here in the HAT interview:Daniel-Waldstein-BASF-on-HAT Facebook Twitter Weed Control This Year for Better Control in Coming Years Facebook Twitter SHARE Previous articleAg Should be First in Line to Get Trade Issues Resolved on the HAT Wednesday Morning EditionNext articleDoud: Agriculture Should be First in Line to Get Issues Resolved Andy Eubank

Local NewsBusiness NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 24, 2021– Please replace the release dated February 19, 2021 with the following corrected version due to multiple revisions. The updated release reads: APP IN THE AIR ANNOUNCES NEW NDC PARTNERS ~Lufthansa Group Airlines and Southwest Join Expanding Mobile Distribution Platform That Gives Airlines Access to Unmanaged Business Travelers~ Award-winning travel platform App in the Air (AITA) announces the addition of new NDC partners: Southwest Airlines, Lufthansa Group airlines consisting of Austrian Airlines, Lufthansa, SWISS and Brussels Airlines, along with Hahn Air’s network of over 350 airline partners to its rapidly expanding airline and hotel booking tool. According to AITA Chief Revenue Officer Greg Kott, leveraging NDC to connect unmanaged business travelers to airline inventory is strategically important as carriers strive to differentiate their product and services. “Airlines are seeking innovative ways to attract and retain valuable unmanaged business travelers in the mobile space where they live,” says Kott. “Direct bookings via NDC connectivity is that solution. It gives airlines the opportunity to delight customers with full fare transparency, the ability to avoid hidden fees and access to the most attractive offers. More than that, NDC via App in the Air allows airlines to take better advantage of their unique selling proposition and upsell with easy to purchase ancillaries and upgrades to higher classes of service. It’s a win-win.” “More than a tool to improve the booking experience, App in the Air is a tool to help the user manage the entire trip lifecycle,” says Kott. The new connection to Lufthansa Group airlines is made possible through an NDC API in partnership with Duffel Technology Ltd. The new connection to Southwest Airlines is being made available through ATPCO’s NDC Exchange. Lastly, App in the Air is also connecting to more than 350 airline partners through Hahn Air. These carriers join existing App in the Air NDC partners including American Airlines, United Airlines, and others. Betsie White, ATPCOs Manager, New Business Integration said, “Expanding our relationship with App in the Air’s innovative mobile-only booking platform by bringing on Southwest Airlines, via ATPCO’s NDC Exchange integration is a win for the industry. This move not only brings Southwest’s fares to their platform but also makes it easier for all travelers to easily access, book, and manage travel on the App in the Air’s platform.” Leading the tech travel space as the all-in-one resource for avid travelers, the app’s new booking platform also provides personalized search capability and the ability to preview points earned before booking with suggested flights based on airline loyalty status. The new booking tool relies upon machine learning to suggest flights based on previous booking habits and continues to understand preferences including stops, times, amenities, alliance programs and pricing over time.
