Claudia Sulewski is a successful lifestyle YouTuber who posts videos about her seemingly near-perfect life to her millions of subscribers. As of this writing, Sulewski’s subscriber count stands at just over two million. The YouTuber is also giving fans a glimpse into her relationship with her famous boyfriend Finneas O’Connell, so it made sense that the couple would do something good together. In March 2020, the duo joined forces and created a weekly podcast titled We bought a house with Claudia Sulewski and Finneas, where they “discover the strengths and pitfalls of life and experience it together”.

“If you spend enough time distancing yourself on social media, you start a podcast,” O’Connell posted in an Instagram caption in March 2020. “Claudia and I have been talking about doing this for months and we’re excited to launch ‘We Bought a house. ‘”By Billboard, the two “will cover everything from the worst thing about life together to Olive Garden breadsticks.” It sounds romantic.

While the two are seemingly beloved, don’t expect to see a wedding vlog on Sulewski’s Channel anytime soon. When asked if he was ready to ask the question in May 2020, O’Connell bluntly said so Weekly US: “No”, adding “Not yet”.

Followers of award-winning singer Rihanna have really continued to be a bit of a stalemate recently, with many exhibiting long for a new CD. The singer has finally had a word about it.

Today, Rihanna appeared in a conference with ETOnline While most of the discussion focused on her organization as well as type efforts, she also made it clear that she understands her fans’ desire for new tracks.

Rihanna has currently provided fans with details regarding the upcoming work. She really did disclose that he will absolutely be called “R9”, more than likely recommending that it be her 9 workshop CD. Other than that, fans don’t identify much with each other.

Very little has appeared about the cd. There was no tracklist and Rihanna has not seen the artists of which she will absolutely be composed.

During her ET Online talk, she made it clear that she understood the need for certain leads. Nonetheless, it would appear absolutely quickly. She partially stated,

“I’m not just going to turn it off just because people are waiting. It took so long, I’ll make it worth it.

Rihanna also addressed the notion that she had really decided to leave the tracks. In part, she made it clear that she really regularly filmed the same way when she wasn’t posting anything.

Once again, she came back to her element – she would definitely release new tracks whenever she wanted, and fans certainly won’t be disappointed.

In 2015, Forbes called Rihanna the richest female musician with full estates of $ 600 million.

Rihanna really took a break from the runway market. Her last cd called “ANTI” was released in 2016 Like almost everything she has really created, ANTI has acquired a desirable functionality.

He had facets of his brand new “trap”, which fans appreciated at the time. Never because, however, there was almost nothing of her.

She really focused a lot more on her Fenty design as well as her appeal line. The singer has similarly done a substantial philanthropic task over the years, as she has truly dedicated herself to the installation.

The emphasis on design has really helped her so far. In 2015, Forbes called Rihanna the richest female musician with full estates of $ 600 million.

Still, she identifies that fans are worth her tracks much more. Records said she currently has over 500 tracks to choose from, so she’s pretty much CD ready. It’s just a matter of when.

Rihanna’s kind efforts were likewise highly appreciated by many people. At the center of the special coronavirus pandemic, its Clara Lionel structure has truly added over $ 5 million to mitigation efforts across the globe.

With a world of solutions as well as a framework to execute, it’s simple to see precisely how Rihanna can be so energetic. Still, fans identify that when she cuts a job, it’s consistently a hit.

United States President Donald Trump has backed calls by quarterback Trevor Lawrence for the college football season to take place amid rising coronavirus cases in the country.

Many reports suggest the Big Ten leans towards pulling the plug on its fall sports season, with the other Power 5 conferences – the ACC, Big 12, Pac-12 and SEC – in discussions and possibly follow-ups.

But Clemson star quarterback Lawrence issued a statement on behalf of the athletes demanding the season be played, with Trump joining the debate by tweeting a quote in response.


He wrote: “The student-athletes worked too hard to have their season canceled. #WeWantToPlay. “

“We want to play football this season,” the players’ statement read. “Establish mandatory universal health and safety procedures and protocols to protect college athletes from Covid-19 at all NCAA conferences.

Trevor Lawrence called for measures to be put in place to save the season (Getty)

“Give players the opportunity to opt out and respect their decision. Ensure eligibility whether a player chooses to play the season or not.

“Use our voices to build open communication and trust between players and officials.

“Ultimately, create an association of college football players. Representing the actors of all Power 5 conferences. “

America’s oil, gas and mining industries continued to cut jobs in July, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, with trade groups warning that the sector may not have hit bottom yet.

Total employment in July fell to 569,100 from 576,100 jobs in June in industries spanning mining, quarrying and oil and gas extraction, according to BLS data released Friday. This rate of job loss was about as fast as it was from May to June, although this time the sector’s unemployment rate – called NAICS 21 – actually fell to 15.6% from 17.8% in June. , some potential workers having stopped looking for employment in these industries. .

Fossil fuel companies have been disproportionately hit hard by the economic shock of the COVID-19 pandemic. Their unemployment rate of 17.8% was the second highest unemployment rate in any sector of the US economy in July, followed only by the leisure and hospitality sector with 25% unemployment, according to the BLS data. Overall, the unemployment rate in the United States in July was relatively low at 10.2%.

Not all sectors of the oil, gas and mining industries have been affected in the same way. The industry segment focused on oil and gas extraction – or NAICS 211 – actually created jobs for the second consecutive month in July, up 0.8% from June. This was likely due to the fact that a number of oil and gas companies continued to re-commission temporarily closed wells as oil prices returned to prices around the breakeven point of $ 40 per barrel.

Mining jobs also posted a slight gain in July, up 1.3%, although overall mining employment has remained sharply down since the start of the year. (The BLS does not publish data on the percentage of unemployment at the industry segment level.)

This left another segment of the industry – the more peripheral service sector, whose workers perform many of the industry’s most menial tasks, including servicing and handling heavy equipment – to absorb the burden. worst of the recession.

The “Mining support activities” sector lost more than 10,000 jobs from June to July, with overall employment down 24.9% since January (against only 0.4% for the “Oil and gas extraction” segment. gas”). Meanwhile, a report by the Petroleum Equipment and Services Association (PESA), using data from the BLS, found that employment in the oilfield services and equipment industry fell further in July compared to June, dropping to around 665,000 in July from 675,000 in June, and significantly lower. than in January.

The analysis of the data by PESA – carried out in consultation with researchers at the Hobby School of Public Affairs at the University of Houston – examined much of the oil and gas world which includes the service sector and a large part of its value chain, including oil and gas. extraction, construction and manufacturing. Thus, its data may overlap with the BLS data reported above.

It is still not clear why some parts of the oil, gas and mining industries have been hit harder than others. But one of the likely reasons is that companies have downsized amid collapsing demand for oil and gas, which could potentially shift less activity to service companies like Baker Hughes.

BHI
or Schlumberger

SLB
until they are more confident about future levels of demand for oil and gas. Service companies thrive on large contracts awarded by companies with direct resource claims, leaving them little choice but to downsize when those contracts run dry.

Oil industry analysts are not optimistic about what the future holds for the oil services industry. A report from Rystad Energy consultants on Friday found that after a drop in oil prices in 2016, oil service companies such as Baker Hughes, Halliburton

HAL
and Schlumberger largely failed to rehire the tens of thousands of workers he had cut from payroll to weather the recession, preferring to focus on boosting efficiency and cutting costs. This suggests that this year’s job losses in the service sector could also be permanent, analysts said.

“The downsizing expected this year will probably lead to [oilfield services] industry with the lowest total workforce in over a decade. “

Tsimikas joins Liverpool after Greek champions Olympiakos

The Greece international presented against Wolves in the Europa League last week will provide much-needed competition for Andy Robertson on Merseyside.



“I am very happy, I am very proud to be here. For me, (it’s) the biggest club in the world, ”he said on the club’s website.
“The league here, I like it a lot. I watch it on TV and I have always dreamed of coming to play in this league since my childhood.
“(I want to) achieve (our) goals. To win the league again and also to win the Champions League.

Tsimikas, crowned three times by his country and known for watching videos of Robertson in an attempt to improve his game, becomes Liverpool’s first signing of the summer.
He made 86 appearances for Olympiacos in all competitions and was also on loan with Danish club Esbjerg and Dutch team Willem II.
Reds boss Jurgen Klopp said: “He’s a very good footballer with a winning and competitive attitude, and I really like his mentality.
“It fits perfectly with the mood and desire we already have in our closet.
“He’s already shown at a young age that he can experience football in a different country and do well – and he’s been a big part of the success Olympiakos have had in winning their title this season and in their European campaigns. .

Nice and Napoli were close to signing Tsimikas but Liverpool had established a long-term relationship with their agent – as early as August 2018, when he played in a Europa League qualifier at Burnley – and in January 2020 he identified him as a viable left-back. option.
Leicester and Sevilla, among other clubs, tried to join the race when Liverpool’s interest became public, but the player had already made a commitment to the Reds.

The iGaming industry was born in 1994 when technological and legislative changes occurred simultaneously, creating the ideal conditions for the opening of online casinos, sports betting, lotteries and bingo sites.

In the 26 years that have passed since then, the industry has grown and matured with several large publicly traded companies accumulating significant market shares in Europe and parts of North America. Casino revenues in Europe alone now exceed 20 billion euros (£ 18 billion) each year, and the industry is expected to be valued at $ 100 billion (£ 76 billion) by the end of this decade.

So what were these technological and legal changes? And could something like this happen again?

Free Trade and Processing Zone Law

Spotting an opportunity, lawmakers in Antigua and Barbuda set out to pass legislation that would allow businesses to operate casinos from its jurisdiction, even if customers were residents and present elsewhere.

Foodtech startup Grocemania announces national expansion

The result was the Free Trade and Processing Zone Law, which was passed on November 10, 1994. Very quickly, companies began scrambling to obtain a license and develop the software needed to operate the business. an online casino.

Microsoft Windows and the Internet

At the same time, Microsoft Windows 3.1 was the operating system most commonly loaded on personal computers. It was great back then, but something much bigger was in the works, Windows 95.

It went on sale in August 1995, around the same time that the first online casinos began to open. It came preinstalled with Internet Explorer, the web browser of choice for most at the time.

Memrise language learning app wins $ 15.5 million in Series B

It was often the first opportunity for many people to use the Internet, especially as companies like AOL began to aggressively push their dial-up services to the United States and Europe.

Windows 95 sold 40 million copies in the first year, ten times more than 3.1, dramatically increasing the number of people able to access new online casinos.

It was an exciting time for users who had unprecedented opportunities to explore information, entertainment, and commerce in ways that had never been possible before. And, of course, iGaming companies have played an important role in this area.

As computers got more powerful and consumer internet connections got faster, iGaming companies have improved their offering.

South Yorkshire

South Yorkshire tech company Metalysis closes £ 20million funding round

We have seen this process repeat itself twice in recent years.

Smartphones

While the legal landscape in Europe has remained the same, technology has taken a big step forward. As consumers began to adopt smartphones en masse in the late 2000s and early 2010s, iGaming companies began to make their services available in this new format.

This meant that newer, more casual players could enjoy casino games without having to use a desktop or laptop computer.

Changes in US law

We can see history repeating itself today. In 2018, the United States Supreme Court ruled that individual states have the right to set their own rules for iGaming. As in 1994, this started a race for companies to launch their services in states that have legalized sports betting and casinos.

Today, 12 states have allowed online betting in one form or another, and more are expected to do so in the years to come.

In doing so, the iGaming companies will compete for market share, just as they did in 1994 and 1995.

Chevy has redesigned its two largest SUVs – the Tahoe and the Suburban – for the 2021 model year. Both run on GM’s T1 platform, sharing much more than their design. The two powertrains share, but the two test vehicles The Fast Lane carnot hands. The Tahoe sports the 5.3-liter mill while the larger Suburban packs the 6.2-liter V8. The Fast Lane car pits the two against each other in back-to-back drag races to see which one is faster.

The Tahoe’s smallest mill produces 355 horsepower (264 kilowatts) and 383 pound-feet (519 Newton-meters) of torque. The Suburban’s 6.2-liter produces 402 hp (299 kW) and 460 lb-ft (623 Nm) of torque. Both work with GM’s 10-speed automatic transmission. While the Tahoe is malnourished, it is also about 270 pounds lighter, but that doesn’t matter.

The first race gave the Tahoe a slight lead, but the Suburban quickly closed the gap and then started to pull away before crossing the finish line. The second race has the SUV driver change, but the results are the same. The extra power of the Suburban overcomes the weight differences, and even some, between the two. The video also tested the time from zero to 60 for each, with the Tahoe completing the race in 9.73 seconds. Two tries of the Suburban returned 8.75 and 9.52 seconds. Both hosts say to subtract a second to compensate for the elevation – the track is located a mile above sea level.

You can get the Tahoe with the 6.2-liter V8, which would change the outcome of a drag race, although there are cheaper and faster options if you enjoy drag racing. The Tahoe in the video above, along with the Z71 package, costs $ 68,000, while the 2021 Suburban High Country is priced at $ 83,000. The performance of both is impressive, although it comes at a cost.

Warriors play-by-play announcer Bob Fitzgerald has been chosen to call the NBA bubble playoff games in Orlando, Fitzgerald said in a recent episode of the “Runnin ‘Plays” podcast.

“Fortunately, being in the league for as long as I have known all the teams,” said Fitzgerald, who is in his 25th season as a Golden State broadcaster. “I have seen all the videos, read the protocols and signed my life.

“The NBA has been amazing in terms of the thoroughness, professionalism and success of the whole bubble concept.”

Fitzgerald is expected to call the national games on TNT and NBA TV. His first assignment is Aug. 18 for the first round of the playoffs, but he’s gearing up for the possibility of calling games for one of 16 playoff teams.

The fanless environment, of course, will force Fitzgerald to change his approach a bit.

“I am an exciting person,” Fitzgerald said. “I encourage excellence in basketball. If someone sounds like a dunk, you have two choices. … You can stress “Antetokounmpo came in and soaked him!” Or you can talk about the defender who let him pass. I’m quite a positive person, so I’m going to focus on accomplishments.

The UEFA Champions League quarter-finals kick off on Wednesday, with one-off matches taking place on four consecutive days to determine the semi-finalists. Considering the unique situation surrounding the competition this season, #UCLfantasy managers have received unlimited transfers to get their teams in shape for the finals.

Here are some tips for those looking to end their Fantasy seasons in style.


Play Champions League Fantasy

Aim for a balanced team


Atalanta playmaker Alejandro Gómez

A maximum of five players can be selected from any club for the quarter-finals, and if it’s tempting to stock up on assets from the four teams that you think are most likely to reach the semi-finals. -finals, you may be better served by selecting a more even distribution among the eight quarterfinals. Otherwise, you might be faced with a situation where, despite five more free transfers before the semi-finals, you cannot field a full squad of 15 active players without taking points for the transfers.

Keep an eye on team news

Selecting tackled starters will always increase your chances of success in #UCLfantasy, so keep an eye out for UEFA.com’s planned article on scheduled rosters to find out how each team will line up. Additionally, Atalanta and Paris starting XI will be released about an hour before Wednesday night’s kickoff, so there is a small window for #UCLfantasy managers to use this knowledge to their advantage.

Select a potential captain for each playing day

The right captain can make or break a matchday – just ask those who put the armband on four-goal hero Josip Iličić on Matchday 8! With the quarterfinal schedule giving #UCLfantasy managers four chances to succeed as their captains, it’s worth looking at who the top contenders are in each of the four matches and building your squad around those players. For an overview of some of the more notable options, check out UEFA.com’s Captain Marvel article.

Be sure to monitor player property

The ‘Selected by%’ in each player’s profile is a useful stat to watch as it allows #UCLfantasy managers to see how popular certain assets are. For those who need to collect points in their mini-league down the home stretch, there are plenty of enticing options with little ownership among the remaining teams. If your differential diamond produces the goods, you are sure to move up the ranks. However, players are heavily held for a reason and going without too many of them is a significant risk, so balance is key.
