Powerball And Lottery Business In Danger In Illinois Due To Lack of Finances to Pay The Prizes

The Illinois state finances are in turmoil affecting the Powerball and Lottery business in the state which would ultimately lead to a suspension of them until the legislative assembly and the democratic government maintain some balance between the income and expense. The government and the republic governor need to get into an agreement before 1st July or else this would be the third year in a row when there has been no agreement in relation to the finances of the state. This has been the second meeting after December when the first meeting was held to get into an agreement. Currently, the multistate consortiums are managing and operating the Powerball and the big jackpot and they are in a dilemma about the future which enforced them to withhold the games for some time.

Greg Smith has announced that the Powerball gain would be suspended after 28th June and the Mega Million drawings would end on the temporary basis from 30th June. But the tickets would be sold to the customers and all those winning the prizes up to $25,000 would have to wait for some time to receive them until the final discussion of the budget meeting gets completed. There is no suspicion that the prizes won’t be paid the General Assembly has not yet announced the allocation of the budget which would include the prize amount as a part of it so that the prizes could be distributed in time to all the winners.

The state and multi-state lottery association officials are waiting for the Fiscal Year 2018 appropriation to pass the budget and know the allocation for the lottery so that they can co-ordinate properly and try to find some solution to get back the Powerball game back in Illinois. The other game Mega Million is also expected to be restarted during the same time but till then everyone has to wait because the exact time is uncertain. Illinois has suffered the similar situation in 2015 when the budget appropriation for 2016 was not announced and there were more than 3900 valid winning claims on hold to be paid off. But once the appropriation was announced the association has made a payment of more than $112 million to all the winners within one month.

The lottery association is very positive about getting a resolution soon in this situation since last year in 2016; the multistate lottery returns were unbelievable. They managed to get revenues of more than $99 million through the Mega Million sales and Powerball business was much ahead of it with a total collection of $208 million.

Nike Suffers From Falling Sales In US Due to Online Retail Market.

Nike Struggling Against Falling Sales in US Against The Online Retail MarketNike has been known for its brand name which is valued to $19 billion in the global market. However these days even Nike is suffering with losses leading to drop in their share price up to 7%. North America is considered to be one of the most potential market which derives 45% of the total revenue of the company. Nike is skeptical about its overall growth in the next quarter and is expecting just to be in single digit.

Currently due to tough competition from its strong competitors like Adidas and Under Armour, Nike’s sales and revenues have dropped down in overall market. However the situation at the competitor’s end is similar to that of Nike. If we look at the other markets outside US, Nike still have lot of potential and is still growing. Statistics for other markets like Japan, China and Asia looks descent with increase in sales by 9%, 15% and 8% respectively.

Nike’s sales figures have been positive with their current profits till March since three months amounts to $950 million and there has been a growth of nearly 8%. Even though Nike might be struggling to achieve its targets in US, but their numbers outside US shows a positive sign of growth and development for them.

Nike has also been facing stiff competition from the online retailer like Amazon who are curbing the Nike’s store retailers business ultimately leading to losses. Departmental store giant JCPenney earlier announced a deal with Nike to allow them to run Nike Shops in their retailer outlets but are struggling at this moment.

With the existence of the online retail market available to the customer has hit all the retail store businesses ultimately hitting the profits of these big brands like Nike, Finish Line, and Dick’s. All the companies are worried about the fall in their profits due to the online retail market which provides more variety at less price. Not only the sports apparel industry but the huge giant retail and departmental stores that were established across the US like Kmart, Sears to name a few have suffered huge losses and had to shut down some of their stores in order to survive in the market.

Nike has been taking some strategic decisions to improve their sales figures by focusing their online presence for the customers and developing a new line of technology infused products like shoes that might lace themselves.

OneFootball is an application that is available for both-android as well as iPhone users to get in touch with the football world and stay ahead of the game by keeping themselves informed about the various matches and news about football. It gives a complete coverage of news, player profiles, stats, tables, results, important soccer competitions and real-time notification.

A Look Back:

OneFootball was initially called The Football App. It has come a long way over the years and remains one of the most popular football news application. Lately, OneFootball is exploring the addition of smart watch features to suit the audience. You can stay connected with the Football matches from wherever you are with the help of your mobile. Its push notification has made this app as a ‘must-have’ for football fans. It also shows the location of where the matches are being held and updates you instantly on the scores of the matches.

Pros:

Here are some things that we absolutely love about OneFootball!

  • Mind-blowing Match Coverage:The live commentary that you get from the TalkSport Live Radio via push notification is a great way of keeping the listeners informed. A minute-by-minute live commentary is provided which makes this the best app every for football lovers.

Drawbacks:

Usain ‘Bolts’ To Seventh Olympic Gold

Usain Bolt took his tally of Olympic Gold medals to seven after he literally waltzed through the 100 meter finals, beating his American rival Justin Gatlin by a stunning 25 meter.  Bolt recorded a time of 9.81 seconds- nothing special by his standards- but at this stage of his career, Bolt would be sensible enough to rack up more medals than trying to beat his own records.  Going by his current form, it would be a safe bet to expect nothing short of Gold from Bolt in the 200m and 4x100m relay, to be played later in the week.  American sprinter Justin Gatlin secured a Silver medal, with a time of 9.89 seconds, while Canadian Andre de Grasse claimed a Bronze with a time of 9.91 seconds.  This was actually Bolt's slowest winning time of his career,  a long shot from his Olympic record of 9.63 seconds set in London in 2012. Bolt has also been showing signs of slowing down, with a time of 9.77 in Moscow in 2013, and 9.79 in Beijing last year.  Bolt, while dwindling in his twilight years as he moves closer to retirement next year, is still a long way ahead of his contemporary sprinters, leading many to question jokingly on social media whether he is an alien, or maybe a real life version of Barry Allen.  “I’m really happy but I expected to go faster,” Bolt said after the race. “With the turnaround time between the semi-final and final we normally have two hours, but we had one hour 20 minutes, it was challenging. But I’m just happy that I won and that’s the key thing.”  Bolt still remains a fan favorite, and the crowd cheered him no holds barred, appreciating his every move.Usain Bolt took his tally of Olympic Gold medals to seven after he literally waltzed through the 100 meter finals, beating his American rival Justin Gatlin by a stunning 25 meter.

Bayern Munich thrash Werder Bremen 6-0 in first league game of the season

Bayern Munich thrash Werder Bremen 6-0 in first league game of the seasonBayern Munich stormed their way to victory in new manager Carlo Ancelotti’s first league game since his appointment, thrashing a totally out of sorts Werder Bremen 6-0 at the Allianz Arena on Friday. German forward Thomas Müller provided three assists in the process.

Xabi Alonso opened the scoring in the 9th minute with a superb volley, before Robert Lewandowski doubled the lead four minutes later after latching on to a through ball from French veteran Franck Ribéry.

The champions went into the half time break leading 2-0, but went on full rampage right from the advent of the second half, as Lewandowski scored again in the first minute.

Captain Philipp Lahm and Ribéry then added two more to the tally in the 66th and 73rd minutes respectively, putting the game effectively beyond the reach of the visitors. Lewandowski then completed his hat trick in the 77th minute after converting a penalty.

This was Lewandowski’s second hat trick of the season already, after scoring three in the 5-0 routing of Jena last week in the DFB Pokal.

New manager Ancelotti was in high spirits even before the game, saying that his side would aim to win every competition this season.

Bayern Munich have won the Bundesliga four times in a row now, thrice under current Manchester City head coach Pep Guardiola and once under treble winner Jupp Heynckes. However, despite the domestic dominance, Guardiola failed to go past the semi finals of the UEFA Champion’s League during his three year tenure.

Mariana Pajon, The Queen of BMX Flew Again in Rio 2016

Mariana Pajon, The Queen of BMX Flew Again in RioMariana Pajon, the queen of BMX, arrived in Rio de Janeiro to win his second Olympic medal and continue putting up the name of their country. And he got it. It is now the best Olympian in the history of Colombia.

The 24-year-old athlete, born in Medellin, Colombia, is one of the gladiators who participated in the 2016 Summer Olympics in the discipline of BMX, an extreme sport that meets only its third year in the Olympic fair -for was included as an Olympic sport only since 2008 and in which the Colombian had already put his mark since its first participation in London 2012 with a historic gold.

And this Friday, Pajón confirmed that it is the queen of the sport. During all tests, all qualifying races, it was the first. From beginning to end. In the end, only he materialized what a whole country expected. Gold was the best, without question, with a time of 34.09 seconds.

At the end of the race, Pajon repeated what he had said during his presence in Rio: he felt at home, very confident. “I felt at home, he had displayed on the podium. I worked very hard for this and we are here,” he told the Colombian press after his victory.

With Mariana, Colombia joined third gold medal in Rio 2016 and the fifth in its history.

Golden Simplicity

Despite his Olympic glory, to be the most important Olympian of Colombia, Pajón keeps feet on the ground, on his bicycle, and celebrated with a country that has learned to count their triumphs.

Colombian journalists told him you are the most important Olympic athlete in history in Colombia. “No, I’m not the most important, I am an also did his best here, have given me all the best.” It has you been in history, they said. And she, wise, proud, said: “It has become Colombia in history”.

“I’ll keep making history. I’m going for more.”
