Paddy Power – Bookmakers face ‘toughest call’ on Mercury Music Prize 2018

first_img Paddy Power raises awareness of Missing People with Motherwell ‘silhouette’ stand August 7, 2020 Flutter moves to refine merger benefits against 2020 trading realities August 27, 2020 Related Articles This week’s announcement by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) of the twelve UK contemporary music albums competing for the ‘2018 Mercury Music Prize’ has perplexed UK bookmakers.The annual music and songwriting prize aims to reward the best album released by a British or Irish recording artist/band. The Mercury Prize’s history is littered with upsets, however, its 2018 edition maybe the hardest ever to call.Making this year’s Mercury shortlist, are four of the UK’s most successful contemporary recording artists in; Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Lilly Allen, The Arctic Monkeys and Florence & The Machine.  Nevertheless, featuring a closed judging panel which selects its winner on the night, the Mercury Prize does not favour artist album sales or recognised names, leading to much controversy.Lee Price – Paddy PowerSpeaking to SBC, Lee Price Head of PR for Paddy Power details that the bookmaker has placed London Jazz band Sons of Kemet’s ‘Your Queen is a Reptile’ and Tyneside post-pink singer Nadine Shah’s ‘Holiday Destination’ as 5/1 early Mercury Prize favourites.“This is a wide open betting event with joint-favourites at 5/1 (Sons of Kemet & Nadine Shah). This implies both of them have something in the region of a 16% chance of winning the award, reflecting how close it is” Price details.“Sons of Kemet is the only jazz genre representative and, as such, would be a bit of an unknown quantity. That, coupled with the underlying story that the album is a tribute to “nine remarkable black women” and their efforts to create a jazz masterpiece, would also be factored into their favourable pricing.”Despite the fact that the bigger names, will likely attract the market’s interest and wagers, Price details that Paddy Power will stick to its guns.At present, the bookmaker has priced Noel Gallagher, Lilly Allen, the Arctics and Florence, jointly at 8/1“It’s always a difficult award to predict given the range of genres covered and also the spectrum across which the entrants are generated – for example, you can end up with debut albums (e.g. Everything is Recorded this year) going up against well-established names. Part of the Mercury Prize’s shtick is being unpredictable. Which is great, just not for bookies.”Paddy Power – Mercury Music Prize 2018 Odds Submit Share Share StumbleUpon Bookies Corner: Trump Presidency sinks as US 2020 enters its 100 day countdown July 29, 2020last_img read more

Nokia’s Vision of Augmented Reality (Video)

first_img4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App Augmented Reality, the class of technologies that overlay data on top a user’s view of the real world, is a very hot field right now. Mobile AR apps, like Layar and Wikitude are getting the most attention, but there are other ways Augmented Reality can be implemented beyond the mobile phone.Nokia released a video today that demonstrates how Augmented Reality could be served up using glasses and other fashion accessories. In the video embedded below you’ll see a woman surf the web and post rudimentary IM replies all using her eyeballs. It’s a cool video, but it does raise one big question about AR: how can AR apps best add value to the physical world around us? This Nokia video is eye catching, but it doesn’t answer that question.From the video’s description on YouTube:This concept allows to you to experience immersion and effortless navigation in an Augmented Reality environment. New types of interactions involving near-to-eye displays, gaze direction tracking, 3D audio, 3D video, gesture and touch. Through these new types of social linkages people will be connected in innovative ways between the physical and digital worlds.It’s hands-free and weightless compared to a tablet, no small screen problem as you have on a mobile phone – but is it truly useful? Unlike most other AR apps we’ve seen lately, where the physical world is referenced by the AR – the two seem unrelated here. It takes all kinds, though, and who’s to say how AR will be used?(Also, isn’t this music a little creepy? It sounds bittersweet about the inevitable and yet slightly frightening future.)None the less, we’d love to get our hands on a prototype of this technology to test it – just as soon as it becomes real.Thanks to Rouli Nir for tweeting about this. 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… Related Posts Tags:#Augmented Reality#web center_img 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout marshall kirkpatrick 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People…last_img read more

6 days agoBurnley boss Dyche: VAR being used unwisely

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Burnley boss Dyche: VAR being used unwiselyby Paul Vegas6 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveBurnley boss Sean Dyche says they were robbed of a point after seeing VAR rule out a late equaliser at Leicester City.The Clarets looked to have levelled the scores up at 2-2 in the 80th minute at the King Power Stadium, when Chris Wood’s effort cannoned off goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel and hit team mate Jonny Evans on the chest before rolling into the gaping net.However, following a lengthy delay, referee Jon Moss ruled out the goal after VAR referee Andy Madley spotted a ‘trip’ on Evans that he claimed stopped the fallen defender from clearing off the line.But Dyche said: “Firstly, for the record I am a big fan of VAR. I think it will streamline and improve things.“When it’s used unwisely, like today, it’s a head-scratcher and today we are probably a cautionary tale of its development.“To start with, before the game the referee (Moss) told my coach that if he needed to use the screen at the side of the pitch, he would do, and to be tolerant if that was the case.“He didn’t use the screen and if you are not going to use it for instances like that, I’m not sure when you will ever use it.“Going to the moment of truth, if goals start not being given for that, we’re in trouble.“Chris (Wood) has clearly not changed his running gait and if you look at his eyes they are only for the ball.“The reason I’m bringing this level of detail up is that someone is sitting in a studio seeing everything I’m describing.“They see 15 different angles of what I’m saying, and Chris is quite obviously not deliberately trying to trip the player up – for starters.“Secondly, their lad is never going to get that ball and keep it out of the net in a million years.“If he did, he’d be the quickest player on earth, so therefore in a game when people are falling over constantly every week, you just look at this incident and say ‘it’s a goal’.” last_img read more
