50 million could watch Mayweather-McGregor in the US alone

first_imgThat’s largely because the matchup will likely cross over from being just a sporting event to a party night.“We have definitely seen massive general market interest in addition to the sports fan,” said Stephen Espinoza, who heads sports for Showtime, which will televise the fight. “These general market viewers are often not part of the audience for even the biggest combat sports event. So the ceiling is pretty high.”Espinoza said the very nature of the fight — a matchup between a UFC star who has never boxed as a pro against one of the greatest fighters of his time — will drive the pay-per-view sales.“We believe this is an unprecedented event, quite frankly no one knows what to expect,” he said. “The element of these two outspoken personalities in one unprecedented event is compelling.”An early indication of interest in the fight is the massive betting both in Nevada and in other places where it is legal. Bookmakers say it will be the biggest bet fight ever, with an overwhelming number of the early tickets on McGregor to pull an upset.Still, there are plenty of tickets left in the arena itself, where prices originally ranged from $2,500 in the upper sections to $10,000 at ringside. Ticket prices have been dropping in the resale market — with some available for less than $1,300 on Tuesday — and are expected to decline more in the days before the fight.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Search on for 5 Indonesians snatched anew in Lahad Datu Police seize P68-M worth of ‘shabu’ in Pasay Hotdog’s Dennis Garcia dies Bishop Baylon encourages faithful in Albay to help Taal evacuees Marcosian mode: Duterte threatens to arrest water execs ‘one night’ “It’s a cultural event that crosses all demographics and all social and economic factors,” said Mark Taffet, who formerly ran pay-per-view for HBO. “People are getting together to have a great time and we surely need an excuse to have a great time.”Taffet said that while an average of 5-6 people normally watches a pay-per-view, he wouldn’t be surprised if the fight averages 10 people a household. If it sells 5 million pay-per-views as widely anticipated, the fight could be watched by nearly one in six Americans.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSEnd of his agony?

(AP Photo/Frank Franklin II)LAS VEGAS — Conor McGregor’s improbable challenge of Floyd Mayweather Jr. could be seen by a staggering 50 million people in the United States as fans and the curious gather in small and large parties.The fight Saturday night threatens the pay-per-view revenue record set by Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao two years ago and could dwarf it in viewership as people use the event as a reason to have friends and family over for a little escapism and controlled violence.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES Manny Pacquiao on Floyd Mayweather: Let him enjoy retirement PLAY LIST 00:44Manny Pacquiao on Floyd Mayweather: Let him enjoy retirement01:49Pacquiao to Mayweather: Want fans to stop asking for rematch?

Though estimates vary widely, Mayweather is expected to make some $200 million, while McGregor will likely pocket at least $100 million.Though ticket sales have been slow in Las Vegas — largely because of astronomical prices — the fight is shaping up as must-see TV at a price of $99.95. People are expected to buy the fight in record numbers, with many sharing the cost of the telecast with friends and family they invite over.Taffet said people will treat it much like a Super Bowl by getting together in larger numbers than usual.“I think this is first and foremost a television event,” said Taffet, who oversaw 190 pay-per-views in his career at HBO. “The success of this fight in the financial record books of history will be made on pay-per-view. And I believe it’s going to deliver.”Industry observers say it’s hard to judge how many homes will buy a pay-per-view until the day of the fight many times, as people often buy late. But the anecdotal evidence — primarily the chatter on social media — indicates a good likelihood of it smashing the 4.6 million record of pay-per-view sales set by the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight.ADVERTISEMENT OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ‘a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

The Bus Ride

first_imgJohnson Street is one of the many which is the hub, hustle and bustle of Monrovia. Here you find characters of various types, questionable as well as honest people, who are trying to eke out a meager income and are not even sure when they will get food for the next meal.The upper part of the street is used as a parking area for vehicles taking commuters to and from the city and its environs. And although it is barely wide enough to accommodate a dozen vehicles at a time and especially often crowded with street sellers, most of whom sell their wares practically in the way of pedestrians and vehicles alike, each successive mayor ever since the civil war has done little to change the order of things. As a result, city ordinance laws have nearly all gone unheeded. The city’s law enforcement officers, along with the country’s  own national police, have been seen in few instances seizing commodities from petty traders, goods believed to be used by the officers themselves; contributing to a deep level of mistrust among the people, especially when it was known not long ago that city police officers found parading the streets and seizing substantial amount of merchandise were in fact thugs dressed in full Monrovia City Police uniforms; a symbol of the country’s post-war recovery which has been anything but comforting.But nothing is as troubling as when those passenger buses arrived, because then you would think the people trying to get on board would kill each other. I have seen a man of forty trying to board one of these buses by entering through the window, while grappling with others inside and those who were trying to pull him out. I have seen a woman lost her child in one of the many stampedes, though fortunately the child wasn’t trampled to death. I have seen an old woman get run over, after one of the drivers, having lost control of a brake that was malfunctioning, crashed his vehicle into a crowd of bystanders, pedestrians, street sellers and others who were waging a war to get on board. Always I have wanted to shove my way through the crowd and to shout: “Why are you striking your companion?” But I doubt anyone would listen. Besides, that is only a part of the setting of the story which follows.On a particularly hot day in March, a passenger bus arrived and after a fierce tussle the commuters found seats on the bus, which was en route to Bardnersville Estate, and the bus drove out of the Johnson Street tarred road and on to the upper part of Benson Street, past the Warren-Benson street intersection and beyond. The vehicle was practically falling to pieces and, as it drove away, leaving behind a trail of blue smoke, the exhaust pipe dangled so low it clattered on the asphalt.Inhaling exhaust fumes and the odor of sweaty and unwashed bodies, the passengers, most of whom were virtually sitting one on top the other, fell into conversation immediately the bus reached the intersection of Benson and Warren Streets. Of the commuters most were elderly laborers and petty traders, as could be seen from the nearly forbidding expressions of their faces, evidence of people hardened by years of war, hardship and misery and grown accustomed to a Sisyphean mode of survival. Among them was a well-dressed man who seemed totally out of place with his surroundings, as if by a nightmare he had been brought here to sit among all these poor and miserable people.“Someone would have killed me just to board this bus,” one of the elderly women, adjusting a small bundle on her lap, remarked. “They had their hands round my neck and for a moment I thought I was being strangled to death.”Everybody laughed.As the laughter subsided, an old man with a shaven head said, “The transport problem in this country is terrible.”“Eveeeeeery thing is terrible,” put in another woman. “The market, food, clothing, rental and hospital fees, our children’s’ school fees. Everything. And despite the fact that most of us are eating dry rice at home.”“I agree with you,” said the man with the shaven head, nodding vigorously. “But what’s the meaning of having city roads on which the cars are virtually rubbing against each other and must avoid hundreds of potholes which every Minister of Public Works has been paving since he took office?”Just then the bus fell into a particularly large pothole  a few moments’ drive from the Clara Town-Bushrod Island intersection, jostling all the passengers, who in an effort to steady themselves quickly held on to the seats, the windows, the doors and roof of the vehicle. A few days ago, two men had been seen here filling with rocks the potholes in the road. For their effort, they took tips from owners of commercial and private vehicles, most of whom were either reluctant or refused to pay anything at all.  Then people found out that the potholes which the men would fill with rocks the previous day were to be seen empty the day following, and stopped paying anything to them. The men are rarely ever to be seen again. One of them is said to be a trained road engineer who has fallen on hard times. The other man is believed to be a former Liberia United for Reconciliation and Democracy (LURD) rebel turned drug addict and hustler.As the bus drove past the intersection of Clara Town, a young woman dressed in a tight-fitting dark suit and who looked like many young women who are being employed by banks in Monrovia, said to the others, “Look at the Clara Town road which the government called a 2.6 million dollars project. This year the rains left the road nothing other than sand and gravel, and only after a few months of the government having said to have paved the road with asphalt.”“They called the Jamaica Road project 3 million,” said someone else. “But then they had to pave it again after the road got spoiled only after a few months. It seems government officials who are sent to pave our roads are no better than the hustlers who today would throw a few rocks into a pothole and on the next day remove the same rocks to a different place, getting paid for a job they had been paid for before.”“Our govment official dem da mercenary,” cried a fat man wedged between a corner of the bus and three other people.  “Dey only care about money business.”Immediately the word “mercenary” was spoken, the others, perhaps seeing it as the right word to describe corrupt officials, took it up. Cries of “So-so mercenaries in the government,” “We’re being led by a bunch of mercenaries,” “Down with the mercenaries,” “All our officials are mercenaries,” resounded through the crammed space of the passenger vehicle, followed soon after by the outburst of laughter. Some of the passengers were nearly tearing their sides as it was!The cries and laughter died. And then the elderly man who seemed out of place in the midst of all these people, said, “Yet those are the very government officials we all vote for at the slightest notice. And so why must we complain?” Evidently he had been listening intently to the conversation but until now had had nothing to say.From the way in which he spoke it was obvious he was well-educated. It was also probably on account of his appearance that at once a hush descended. He looked to be about fifty years old or so but with a youthfully dyed hair as to make him look like a young man. His complexion was one of better health than the rest of the people combined.“Besides, most of you who complain about corruption,” the man continued, “as soon as you obtain a government post would behave no better than the people of whom you’re complaining. The fact is that Liberians have no love for their country.”“You speak as if you’re not a Liberian yourself,” said the woman with the bundle.“Yes, of course,” said the young woman, “and it would be interesting if he were to tell us where he’s working. The way he’s dressed makes him look like a government minister, though why he should be riding a rickety bus like this bea\ts my imagination.”Everybody burst out laughing.The laughter having subsided, the man, smiling, turned to the girl who had spoken to him and said, “I’m a Liberian and university professor.  “But don’t imagine for a moment that I’m better off than any of you. I’m earning a salary that’s never enough to feed myself and my children. I’ve got seven, five daughters and two boys, and of these only three are in school; one is a university dropout. Two of my daughters have turned to prostitution, and one of my sons to sodomy.  Worst still, the hundreds, if not thousands of night clubs, we’ve here in Monrovia are only further ruining our children, my own included. But who is to blame? No one other the people, you and I included, who vote into offices people who don’t live up to our expectations. But is voting a curse? No. It’s only a way of saying that we want a better person to lead us and our country. Besides, whether or not I vote for a John Doe who turns out to be corrupt wouldn’t make any difference because for their own personal reasons others will vote for him. So why worry? Why complain? Why don’t you cheer up like me?”A lull had again followed while the professor was speaking; his voice could be heard so loud and clear that even the drone of the bus and the clattering of the exhaust pipe on the tarred road, as well as the sound of passing vehicles, seemed muted.  Indeed the whole bus had fallen silent, as if the people were painfully trying to piece together what the professor’s speech meant for each and every one of them.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Prince George Fire Centre says Tumbler Ridge ‘Bullmoose’ fire is under control

Batsmen can’t afford to relax on tricky Eden wicket: Rohit Sharma

first_imgIndian middle order batsman Rohit Sharma on Sunday said the uneven bounce of the Eden Gardens wicket in the second Test match against New Zealand does not offer any leeway for batsmen to relax and one needed to give his 100 per cent in playing every delivery.”You have seen over the last two days, it is not a typical Kolkata wicket, as it used to be before. I think they have re-laid the surface and you may have seen… every now and then there was uneven bounce.”So, at no point the batsmen could relax and take things for granted. Every ball that you are playing, you have to ensure you are giving 100 per cent in playing the ball,” Rohit said after the third day’s play. (Rohit Sharma grateful to team management after stylish 82)Rohit came up with a resolute 82 in the second innings and stitched a 103-run partnership for the seventh wicket with wicket-keeper Wriddhiman Saha to put India in the driving seat at 227/8 – a lead of 339 runs over New Zealand.Referring to the stand with Saha, the flamboyant Rohit said they decided to play every ball on its merit.”When I and Saha were batting, we decided play each ball on its merit, not to think too far ahead, not to think what was coming next, focus on the present for every ball that was bowled to us,” he said.CONDITIONS NOT EASYAsked whether the conditions changed later in the day, or he made it look easy, Rohit said the conditions were never easy.advertisement”The conditions were not easy. As a bowler if you put the ball in the right areas (you can). You may see bounce and an odd ball keeping low, like you saw what happened to Virat (Kohli). You have to be at it all the time. You can’t relax.”There is something in the surface throughout the day, not just in the morning or in the evening. you can’t go too forward nor sit back,” he said.Recalling Trent Boult’s delivery that rose suddenly and injured Shikhar Dhawan’s left thumb, Rohit said: “You have to make sure you are balanced and play as late as possible.” (2nd Test, Day 3: Rohit’s 82 gives India commanding 339-run lead over New Zealand)”It was something which I looking to do. Even in the nets, I batted as late as possible,” he said.Rohit said every batsman would have certain plans to play on tracks like the one at Eden.”Some may not be comfortable playing on the front and some may not be comfortable playing on the back foot.”It’s about getting adjusted to that particular condition. We saw after lunch, or maybe after tea, it was not doing that much,” Rohit said.last_img read more

With the CUDA architecture developed by Nvidia for parallel calculations, the system’s calculation power can be increased considerably by using the graphic processor’s performance. The controller CPU is relieved and is available for other tasks. Demanding applications profit specifically in the machine vision, intelligent video monitoring, process analysis, data visualisation and simulation areas. A current list of the graphics cards supported, also with higher performance, is available from Acceed upon request.As a basis, various 8th generation Intel processors can be selected. The working memory can be extended up to 32 GB (DDR4 SDRAM), 2 internal SATA ports (2.5“ SSD/HDD) with RAID support are available for hard drives, moreover an M.2 slot for NVMe-SSD or Intel Optane memory.The design of the fanless full metal housing consisting of resistant aluminium alloy is designed to meet the high requirements in production, automation and intelligent building technology. Six gigabit Ethernet interfaces ensure sufficient bandwidth for data exchange. Optionally, PoE according to standard 802.3at is available for four of the Ethernet interfaces. With respectively up to 56 watts’ output it is also possible to provide devices with higher power requirements with electricity directly via the LAN cable. Respectively four USB- 3.1 Gen 2 connections (10 Gbps) and 3.1 Gen 1 (5 Gbps) as well as several serial interfaces support fast data communication with further peripheral devices.End-customer specific I/O functions can be implemented as good value extensions with optional Mezzanine cards (MezIO modules with serial interfaces, digital I/O interfaces, LVDS output, CAB bus, DTIO or memory extension).The patented expansion cassette, which can optionally be equipped with PCI or PCIe cards or is used as a pre-configured compact module with a heat spreader, PoE, USB 3.0 and an independent graphics card, offers additional expansion options. It is also possible to equip them with mini PCIe cards with an SIM card slot which can be accessed internally or externally. As a special service, Acceed offers full ready assembly in accordance with customer wishes, also in high quantities.In addition to the common DVI-D and VGA graphics outputs, a universal port exists, supporting 4K2K resolutions up to 4096 × 2304 pixels.GPU-supported power and robustness designed for industrial use (in particular the immunity against ESD and voltage peaks emphasized by the manufacturer) and the exceptional functional versatility make the Nuvo-7160GC the top choice platform for demanding graphics applications, for example in the areas of production control, security, logistics, image processing, robot control, traffic monitoring and automation.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Boards & Modules last_img read more
