The company’s workforce at the Massachusetts site is expected to grow by 75% over the next year.“Presence in these international hubs of technology and gaming, respectively, allows us access to a tremendous talent pool and strengthens our position as leaders in this dynamic industry,” said Matt Kalish, co-founder and chief revenue officer at DraftKings. Meanwhile, in a further move to drive expansion, DraftKings has added three executives to its senior management team. Jamie Shea will join DraftKings as head of digital sportsbook operations after 10 years as a sportsbook and racebook director in Las Vegas. Frank Kunovic will take on the role of director of retail sportsbook operations having previously worked for Caesars, most recently overseeing more than 20 sportsbooks and racebooks. In addition, Sean Hurley has been named head of commercial growth, joining the firm after a spell as head of commercial for Amelco.The trio of new additions comes after DraftKings last week also announced the appointments of Tom Goedde as chief marketing officer and Andy Yang as chief product officer. Kalish said: “The bar for hiring talent at DraftKings is set extremely high, and our success in being first to market in New Jersey with mobile sports betting is the direct result of our skilled team. “I am excited to welcome this new group of executives, while expanding the company to San Francisco and Las Vegas.”Until recently the company distanced itself from sports wagering and ‘games of chance’ as a number of states sought to ban daily fantasy sports contests. However, since the Supreme Court’s decision to overrule PASPA in May, DraftKings has been widening its reach. DraftKings in June struck a deal to offer sports betting services with Resorts Atlantic City in New Jersey, while a deal is also in place with Lago Resort & Casino in New York ready for when the state opts to legalise sports betting.

Let’s Get to the Heart of Stress

first_imgWouldn’t it be great if we could live completely stress-free lives? Eternally sitting on the beach without a care in the world might sounds great, but your body needs some stress to survive.Your stress response is on call 24/7 to balance the demands of your environment with your body’s ability to meet them.  And, your heart has a big part of this important physiological process.You go for a run- stress hormones trigger your heart to pump faster and harder, which increases the flow of blood, oxygen and nutrients to your muscles so they can perform.Someone pulls out in front of you while driving- within a fraction of a second, your stress hormones and heart work together to trigger a series of lightning-speed reactions that enhance your ability to swerve out of the way.Dr. George Guthrie, Board-Certified Family Medicine Physician at Florida Hospital, explains that while some stress (like exercise) is good for your heart, a constant state of stress, especially emotional stress, for long periods of time could negatively impact your cardiovascular health.Bad stressWhen faced with constant emotional stress or perceptions of stressful events (like being stuck in traffic, financial burdens or family troubles) your body responds with a cascading chain of physiological effects which are meant to assist for a short period of time.Signaled by different stress hormones like adrenaline, noradrenaline and cortisol, your stress response is meant to help your body get through the stressful event or feeling and then return to its natural state. However, chronic stress interferes with this natural balance, and the continuous release of stress hormones can cause the heart and other vital organs to stay revved up for too long.“Over time, overexertion on the cardiovascular system and overexposure to stress hormones can have serious health consequences, such as increased risks for chronic high blood pressure, weight gain, heart attack and stroke,” cautions Dr. Guthrie.He adds that chronic stress is also linked to inflammation in the circulatory system- especially concerning when it is within the coronary arteries. This is considered to be responsible for at least part of the association between long-term high levels of stress hormones and increased heart attack risk.What you can doYou can’t entirely prevent stress, but you can actively recognize stress triggers and develop ways to cope in a healthy way with our daily stresses. Dr. Guthrie helps his patients manage stress for better heart health by offering these tips:Shift your perspectiveRunning away from imminent danger could mean life or death. Being late for a meeting, on the other hand, generally does not carry this level of threat. However, if you think chose to think like it does, your body will respond that way.To avoid this, be aware of things that tend to signal your stress response and create a plan to cope with them. If you come down with a case of “I can’t stand-itis” or begin “awful-izing,” Dr. Guthrie suggests shifting to a larger perspective and choosing to be less reactive and more positive and proactive. Your mind has a lot of power over controlling how you perceive your stressors and how your body will react to them.  Your self-talk can make a huge difference in your stress response.Get enough good quality sleepSleep does a body good, especially a stressed one. Dr. Guthrie says that sleep is critical for your emotional health. While sleeping, your brain is processing stress from your day; Sleep scientists call this “dream work.” If you have sleep disturbances, you aren’t giving your body and mind enough dream work time to recharge, so stress continues to mount day after day. Adequate sleep will help you process prior stress and be prepared to tackle new challenges ahead.  Incidentally, most common sleeping pills interfere with the REM sleep in which most “dream work” takes place, so it is better to practice good sleep hygiene to improve your sleep.Exercise“Exercise is the best way to deal with most emotional forms of stress,” advises Dr. Guthrie. He says that exercise “cleans up your system,” so to speak. The increased blood flow, oxygen and circulation clears out the emotional stress hormones, and even helps you to make more health-conscious choices. It also lowers blood pressure afterwards, increases the “feel good” hormones in the body, and lowers blood sugar levels (where emotional stress tends to increase them). If you exercise outdoors, you can get an extra boost of vitamin D, fresh air and “outdoorphins,” all of which help counteract stressful feelings.Eat healthyStress can send a signal to your brain that you need instant energy. This can lead to cravings for high-fat and high-sugar foods or drinks, which can put more stress on the body by spiking blood sugar levels, inflammation and strain on blood vessels. Dr. Guthrie recommends avoiding these foods and focusing more on fruit and vegetables for their wonderful anti-inflammatory effects.  Hydration with water helps the body clear out the stress hormone breakdown products. Avoiding stimulants like caffeine, which have stress hormone like effects, is also a wise move.Dr. Guthrie concludes: “Long-term exposure to high levels of stress throughout your lifetime increases the likelihood of long-term adverse cardiovascular events, so it’s important to recognize, manage and cope in a healthy way with our daily stresses to promote lifelong heart and overall health.” Please enter your name here Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Please enter your comment!

On July 31, 2018, Chief McKinley joined in the Orange County Public School’s district-wide table top exercise designed to simulate a response to a reported school shooting. The exercise was designed to practice and discuss command and coordination operations during an emergency scenario. McKinley, along with law enforcement members from OCPS, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, Orlando PD, and others, as well as, school administrators, support staff, teachers, fire and EMS personnel, and emergency management professionals worked in coordination to resolve the situations presented. Chief McKinley (center) discusses with law enforcement executives and emergency management personnel the phases of response to a simulated school-based emergency. “This type of training and collaboration is invaluable,” Chief McKinley commented regarding the exercise, “and with the heightened awareness of school-based violence, it is important we engage all the stakeholders to ensure a successful outcome if we are presented with a major emergency.” The scenario focused on three phases of any event; the notification, the response, and the recovery. This fictional event covered the core competencies necessary within the phases, having the attendees practice operational communications, agency coordination, public information, mass care, and situational assessments. Lt. Chris Hanstein, Apopka Police’s SWAT commander, attended as well and discussed the tactical response necessary for such emergencies with the working group. Apopka will have all Orange County public schools within its jurisdiction assigned a School Resource Officer beginning August 13, when students return from summer break. This exercise, along with the dedication of officers to the schools are but a few of the commitments to this community to create a safe and livable environment for the citizens of Apopka.  You have entered an incorrect email address!

It seems that they don’t even wait until they get into the new school season, to start the violence, as I was reading the news today, on the local channels, and there was a shooting at a park, in Titusville, at a back to school event, which was full of young kids there to get free back to school backpacks filled with school supplies, and a guy that had been in a fistfight left, came back, and there were shots fired into the park, and a private citizen with a gun, and weapon permit opened fire and shot the guy to keep the kids from getting killed. Also another back to school giveaway of school supplies, a gunman opened fire, at the event and chaos ensued. This one in Atlanta. Pretty horrible when kids face danger of getting shot, going to back to school give away events! Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replylast_img read more

Open letter to President

first_img Ukrainian media group harassed by broadcasting authority News Ukraine escalates “information war” by banning three pro-Kremlin media March 26, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information Organisation Follow the news on Ukraine News Paris, 21 January 2005 Crimean journalist “confesses” to spying for Ukraine on Russian TV UkraineEurope – Central Asia February 26, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts Robert Ménard to go further September 7, 2020 Find out more UkraineEurope – Central Asia News News January 21, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Open letter to President Dear Mr President,Reporters Without Borders would like to heartily congratulate you on your impending inauguration as president on 23 January. We remain very concerned however about the numerous violations of press freedom in Ukraine over the past year. Thirteen journalists were physically attacked and four arrested just for doing their job.Media coverage of the December presidential election campaign was heavily biased and censored, especially on both state and privately-owned radio and TV stations. Several journalists were also unfairly dismissed and access to and circulation of news was blocked on several occasions.Reporters Without Borders therefore hopes you will show determination as president to strengthen the gains made by the media during the “Orange Revolution,” such as abolition of censorship. We note your obligations in this respect as part of your wish to move close to the European Union (EU).You said on Kanal 5 on 29 December that you wanted to “sign an agreement with journalists to ensure the government does not interfere with newspapers’ editorial lines” and that press freedom was “key to the country’s development.” You added that Ukraine would “not be able to take its place among democratic nations” unless it had an impartial media.If Ukraine wants to one day join the EU, European press freedom standards must quickly be adhered to.We also ask you to rapidly show your determination to investigate the 16 September 2000 kidnapping and murder of journalist Georgy Gongadze. You said after you were poisoned: “I hope we find the killer, even though we already know it was the authorities who killed him.”Reporters Without Borders criticised the inadequate enquiry carried out after the murder. Its main aim seemed to be to shield the government from the serious accusations made against it.The appointment of Sviatoslav Piskun as new prosecutor-general on 9 December last must not be just window-dressing. We hope he will quickly launch a new and serious investigation to find out who, right up to the most powerful people, was responsible for Gongadze’s disappearance and murder.We would also appreciate you spelling out your promises as regards press freedom when you visit the Council of Europe in Strasbourg from 24 to 28 January.We trust you will give your close attention to these matters.My very best wishes. As Viktor Yushchenko takes power, Reporters Without Borders, which condemned the crackdown inflicted on the press throughout 2004, reminds the new president of his recent promises to uphold press freedom.

first_imgLocal NewsBusiness Global Phenylketonuria Treatment Markets 2020-2025 by Type, Route, End-User, Geography, Competitive Analysis and the Impact of COVID-19 – ResearchAndMarkets.com DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 3, 2021– The “Global Phenylketonuria Treatment Market (2020-2025) by Type, Route, End-User, Geography, Competitive Analysis and the Impact of Covid-19 with Ansoff Analysis” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering. The Global Phenylketonuria Treatment Market is estimated to be USD 510 Mn in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 682.5 Mn by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 6%. Key factors like the development of pipeline drugs against PKU along with market collaborations amongst the players have supported the growth of this market. Growing incidences of PKU patients worldwide is a major factor driving the growth of the global market. Several other factors, such as increasing investments in intensive research in the genomics field and increasing awareness regarding the timely treatment of PKU are responsible for spurring the growth of the phenylketonuria treatment market. However, a high cost associated with the treatment of PKU, along with low awareness amongst the patients about the disease, has impeded the market growth. Segments Covered By Type, the Drugs segment is anticipated to grow at a faster pace in the forecasted period. It is because phenylketonuria is a rare genetic disorder with very few available treatment options so far. Healthcare professionals have widely promoted prescription drugs along with some dietary modifications. Out of which, Kuvan, a medical drug approved by the US FDA has been used for the treatment in tablet and powder form. Similarly, Biopten, manufactured by Daiichi Sankyo Co. Limited, has been approved by Japan, indicating the demand for this segment. By Route Analysis, the Oral Route is anticipated to grow at a faster pace during the forecasted period. It is mainly due to the patients’ convenience for consumption and is also considered as an easy way of administration over intravenous injections/ infusions. By End User, the Hospital Pharmacies segment holds a major share of the market as they ensure the safe and effective use of medicines by carrying out medication reconciliation on admissions and changes in care level. By Geography, North America is expected to lead the market. The factors attributing to the growth of this market are the favorable regulations and the Government initiatives towards the treatment of PKU, a rise in the number of new-born cases suffering from phenylketonuria, and a strong healthcare infrastructure system in the region. Additionally, there have been continuous R&D activities for the development and commercialization of new drugs for PKU, which has further promoted the growth of this market.

first_imgThe Evansville Area Black Chamber of Commerce Is Hosting A Kick-Off EventEVANSVILLE, IN – A group of community leaders are set to announce the creation of the Evansville Area Black Chamber of Commerce to economically empower and sustain the Black community through entrepreneurship and capitalistic activity on October 18th at 5pm inside the Evansville African American Museum.Former Evansville City  Council candidate and event organizer Alex Burton said “The purpose of bringing this Chamber to Evansville is to put a laser focus on creating and developing sound business operations that can produce a benefit to the entire city,” Pastor Adrian Brooks said.The Evansville Area Black Chamber of Commerce will work with existing resources that are available for small businesses. Having an Evansville Area Black Chamber of Commerce will allow our city to assess the needs of our community, explore opportunity, and expand Black businesses in and around the City of Evansville.“Old National Bank and the Memorial Community Development Corporation have afforded me the opportunity to create and implement the EABCC, which is chartered through the National Black Chamber of Commerce. It is imperative that we: (1) grow and attract Black businesses, (2) start new businesses, and (3) create a pipeline of minority professionals, who choose to make the Evansville area, their home,” Alex said.Our community is an island of possibility and it is imperative that our community combines resources and ideas to ensure sustainability and independence. This chamber is needed and will serve as a “bridge-builder”.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more
