first_img​WOMEN’S CHAMPIONS LEAGUE: Beckie hat-trick as Man City cruise past Luganoby Ian Ferrisa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester City duly booked their place in the last 16 with a 4-0 win on the night and 11-1 on aggregate over Luganao at the Academy Stadium.After a 7-1 victory in the first leg City were always favourites to progress and will hope they can eventually go one better then the two semi-final defeats over the last couple of seasons.Any hopes of a shock comeback by Lugano evaporated after just 5 minutes when Janine Beckie was put through to chip over the advancing keeper Morgan Bertsch.The rest of the half was City dominating possession in what was becoming a glorified practise game. Yet for all this there was little goalmouth action before Beckie doubled the host’s advantage on 33 minutes.It was almost three but Bertsch made a fine save from a close range Steph Houghton header.City increased their lead at the beginning of the second half as Beckie claimed her hat-trick following some sloppy defending and a fortunate rebound.The visitors are struggling in the league back home and this lack of quality was evident in their failure to trouble City.After a sustained period of uneventful play number four arrived from substitute Pauline Bremer who rounded the keeper to slide home.So City continue their 100% start to the season but know their will be tougher games ahead starting at the weekend when they play Everton in a top of the table Super League fixture.Full Time Man City: 4 (Beckie 5, 33, 48 Bremer 78)Lugano: 0Aggregate: Man City 11Lugano 1Att: 949Venue: Academy Stadium TagsPremiership NewsAbout the authorIan FerrisShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Unlimited movietheatre deal could be too good to survive

first_imgNEW YORK, N.Y. – MoviePass is trying to bring to movie theatres what Netflix did for DVDs and online streaming: Let subscribers watch as many movies as they want for $10 a month.In doing so, MoviePass has struck a chord with moviegoers and a nerve with the movie industry.For many people, going to the movies is worth it only a few times a year. Ticket prices keep rising, and moviegoers have plenty of cheaper alternatives, including Netflix.MoviePass believes it can get people to theatres more often. Major theatre chains and movie studios aren’t so sure, putting MoviePass’ business plan at risk.Subscribers with MoviePass can watch a movie a day, be it a splashy blockbuster or an indie movie contending for the Oscars.Though MoviePass works at most theatres, it has key restrictions: It excludes pricier 3-D and Imax showings and most advance online sales. And even if everyone in a group has a subscription, tickets must be purchased individually. Subscribers also complain that MoviePass responds too slowly, or not at all, when there’s a problem.Nonetheless, the thrill of the bargain has sparked interest. MoviePass said Thursday that it signed up a half-million subscribers in less than a month, bringing the total to 2 million.“I’ve seen a little over a dozen movies, which is way more than what I would have without it,” said Cassie Langdon, a 28-year-old Indianapolis woman who works in sports communications and joined MoviePass in October.Langdon said she’s taking chances on smaller releases instead of sticking with blockbusters and their sequels.Success could ultimately bring MoviePass’ demise. Although subscribers pay just $10 a month, or less with promotions, MoviePass is paying most theatres the full price of the ticket. The U.S. average is about $9, though $15 and up is common in big cities, putting MoviePass in the red with just one movie. By contrast, MoviePass competitor Sinemia offers just two or three movies a month for higher fees.Plus, with an unlimited plan, MoviePass has to eat some unnecessary costs, such as when a subscriber buys a ticket just to use the theatre’s restroom.MoviePass’ parent company, Helios and Matheson Analytics, warns in a financial report that MoviePass’ future is in “substantial doubt” because it “has incurred losses since its inception and has a present need for additional funding.”The service is ultimately counting on a “gym membership” effect: Subscribers might binge at first, but slow down once the novelty wears off. Although subscribers can cancel anytime, they wouldn’t be able to sign up again for another nine months to discourage short-term memberships.MoviePass wants to work out ticket discounts and revenue-sharing deals on the premise that it’s driving more people to theatres. The company is also eyeing a share of concession sales, saying moviegoers are more willing to buy popcorn and soda when scoring a “free” movie.And MoviePass believes it can help promote movies because it knows what subscribers see, when and where. Promotions could even extend to sending alerts to buy a soundtrack or movie poster as subscribers leave the theatre.But several industry experts say MoviePass doesn’t add much to the marketing data from theatre chains, online ticketing services and other sources.MoviePass will have leverage once it has “millions and millions of subscribers,” said MoviePass CEO Mitch Lowe, a Netflix co-founder who left while it was still a DVD-by-mail business.To get well beyond the 2 million it already has, MoviePass needs to convince people that they really want to go to movies more often. In most cities, a subscriber needs to watch 13 movies a year to break even. In big cities, it’s eight.“For someone like myself, who usually sees movies twice a year, it wasn’t something I would end up doing,” said Lisa Berey, a 40-year-old social worker in New York.And consider that MoviePass’ original business plan didn’t work out. When the service cost $30 to $50 a month, it had just 20,000 hard-core movie fans. MoviePass slashed prices significantly in August to grow.There’s apprehension that as moviegoers get accustomed to much cheaper prices, consumer anger might be redirected at theatres if MoviePass raises its prices, changes terms or goes out of business.Adam Aron, CEO of the giant theatre chain AMC, has called MoviePass’ price “unsustainable.” AMC initially threatened legal action, but seems to have backed off. The three theatre chains that control roughly half of U.S. screens — AMC, Regal and Cinemark — say they’re happy to accept MoviePass’ money, but pooh-pooh any revenue-sharing deals.This fear isn’t unfounded. In an attempt to gain leverage with AMC, MoviePass recently excluded 10 of the busiest AMC theatres, including big multiplexes in New York and Los Angeles. Confused customers complained on social media to both AMC and MoviePass.For their part, theatre chains are making their own changes. Many theatres now have more comfortable seats and better food. And though still a novelty, some theatres have servers bring restaurant-style entrees and cocktails to seats, providing both the dinner and movie components of date night.Meanwhile, Cinemark launched its own subscription program , though the deal isn’t as good as MoviePass. Regal is testing higher prices for popular times and cheaper ones during slower periods.“I have a hunch that most of the theatres are thinking, ‘how do we beat MoviePass at this game?’” said James McQuivey, principal analyst at research firm Forrester.last_img read more

Frustration rules as Venezuela unveils new currency

first_imgCARACAS, Venezuela – Saul Jimenez just wanted to buy bread from his neighbourhood bakery in Venezuela’s capital on Monday. It did not go well.Banks and most other businesses were closed for the day as Venezuela launched a series of dramatic economic reforms, beginning with the release of a currency with five fewer zeros in a bid to tame soaring inflation.Rampant inflation means it would take a fistful of bills to pay for a loaf of bread, so many Venezuelans like Jimenez rely on bank cards.But with banks closed to reset their systems for the change, Jimenez’s cards wouldn’t work — in a scene that played out across Caracas.“It wasn’t just mine. Others’ didn’t work either,” said the attorney, who left the bakery empty-handed and frustrated. “Neither the debit card nor the credit card.”The currency conversion is among the less controversial parts of President Nicolas Maduro’s economic plan. He’ll next hike the minimum wage by more than 3,000 per cent and raise gasoline prices — now less than a penny to fill up — to international levels.Critics say the package of measures will only make the economic crisis worse.Opposition leaders are seizing on tension among residents, calling for a nationwide strike and protest on Tuesday. They hope to draw masses into the streets against Maduro’s socialist ruling party — something they’ve failed to do in over a year.The closed banks spent Monday preparing to release the new currency: the “sovereign bolivar.” Maduro’s government says it will raise gasoline prices in late September to curtail rampant smuggling across borders. The dramatically higher minimum wage will go into effect starting Sept. 1.Economists say the package of measures is likely to accelerate hyperinflation rather than address its core economic troubles, like oil production plunging to levels last seen in 1947.As Maduro declared Monday a national holiday, Caracas was quiet with most store fronts closed for business.Other banking activities shut down for about twelve hours to allow for a transition to the new currency. Most banks on Monday reactivated their online services and ATMs, but some customers complained of troubles.The impact of the currency conversion won’t be known until Tuesday. One question is whether the banks hold enough cash to meet the public’s need, as officials have promised.Venezuela was once among Latin America’s most prosperous nations, holding the world’s largest proven oil reserves, but a recent fall in oil prices accompanied by corruption and mismanagement under two decades of socialist rule have left the economy in a historic economic and political crisis.Inflation this year could top 1 million per cent, according to economists at the International Monetary Fund.Inflation has made it difficult to find paper money. The largest bill under the outgoing cash system was the 100,000-bolivar note, equal to less than 3 cents on the commonly used black market exchange rate. A cup of coffee costs more than 2 million bolivars.The new paper bills will have two coins and paper denominations ranging from 2 up to 500. The lowest represents the buying power of 200,000 current bolivars while the highest stands in for 50 million.The old and new currencies will remain in circulation together during a transitional period.The government made a similar move in 2008, when then-President Hugo Chavez issued new currency that eliminated three zeros to combat soaring inflation.Maduro has also said he wants to peg wages, prices and pensions to the petro — a cryptocurrency announced in February but which has yet to start circulating. He said one petro would equal $60, with the goal of moving toward a single floating exchange rate in the future tied to the digital currency.Business owners say they fear the sudden wage hike would make them unable to pay employees without sharply increasing prices.The next few days will be very confusing for both consumers and the private sector, especially commercial retailers,” said Asdrubal Oliveros, director of Caracas-based Ecoanalitica. “It’s a chaotic scenario.”last_img read more

Hotel workers remain on strike after latest offer rejected

first_imgHONOLULU — Hawaii hotel workers are expected to remain on strike this week after negotiations between the union and Kyo-ya Hotels and Resorts failed to result in a deal.The Unite Here Local 5 union and Kyo-ya are scheduled to return to talks next week.About 2,700 Marriott employees on Oahu and Maui went on strike early last month, seeking higher wages and better benefits.“We are extremely disappointed that Local 5 leadership rejected our latest offer which would have been the largest increase in compensation for any of the striking markets nationwide,” Kyo-ya said in the statement.Kyo-ya said its offer would have given employees an increase in combined wages and a workload reduction for housekeepers. Benefits for all active employees and retirees would not have changed.“Instead of accepting what would have been a fair and generous agreement, Local 5 leadership has elected to keep our employees out of work,” Kyo-ya said.The union said in a statement that the offer was not enough, but it is hopeful a “true settlement” will be made next week.“A true settlement offer is one that looks at the true cost of living and working in Hawaii and brings us toward the goal of all workers: ‘One Job Should Be Enough,’” the union said.Workers need to be paid enough so they only need one job in order support themselves, the union said.Kyo-ya Hotels and Resorts owns the Marriott-managed Moana Surfrider, The Royal Hawaiian, Sheraton Waikiki, Sheraton Princess Kaiulani, and Sheraton Maui Resort and Spa.The Associated Presslast_img read more

Russian Athlete Yelena Isinbayeva Vaults Against Homosexuality at Worlds

Photo by VALERY HACHE/AFP/Getty Images)Russian champion pole vaulter Yelena Isinbayeva spoke out against homosexuality Thursday at the 2013 World Track and Field Championships in Moscow. After two fellow athletes painted their fingernails rainbow colors to protest the new anti-gay law in Russia, Isinbayeva condemned them in front of her home crowd.“If we allow people to promote and do all this stuff on the street, we are very afraid about our nation because we consider ourselves like normal, standard people,” Isinbayeva said in English. “We just live with boys with woman, woman with boys.“Everything must be fine. It comes from history. We never had any problems, these problems in Russia, and we don’t want to have any in the future.”Two Swedish athletes competed in the track meet with their fingernails painted in rainbow colors at Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.One of the Swedish athletes, Emma Green Tregaro, took to social media by posting a picture of her nails on Instagram, saying “Nails painted in the colors of the rainbow.” Then after came the hashtags, #pride and #moscow2013.“The first thing that happened when I came to Moscow and pulled my curtains aside was that I saw the rainbow and that felt a little ironic,” Green Tregaro said in a video posted on the website of Swedish newspaper Expressen. “Then I had a suggestion from a friend on Instagram that maybe I could paint my nails in the colors of the rainbow and that felt like a simple, small thing that maybe could trigger some thoughts.”The other Swedish athlete to paint her nails in the rainbow colors in protest, was sprinter Moa Hjelmer, who showcased her fingers in the heats of the 200 meters.Isinbayeva said the two were disrespectful to Russia and the citizens of Russia.“It’s unrespectful to our country. It’s unrespectful to our citizens, because we are Russians. Maybe we are different from European people and other people from different lands,” Isinbayeva told reporters. “We have our home and everyone has to respect (it). When we arrive to different countries, we try to follow their rules.”Isinbayeva, who won her third world title Tuesday in front of her home crowd, has set 28 world records. She has also won seven major titles in her career, including gold medals at the 2004 and 2008 Olympics. read more

New England Patriots Cut Tim Tebow

Miami Heat Beats Atlanta Hawks 9287 in Preseason Game

Getty Images/File Dwyane Wade said he didn’t play Monday night because he has “a bigger picture in mind.”Chris Bosh dropped 21 points and LeBron James scored nine, as the two-time defending champion Heat opened the preseason with a victory over the Hawks on Monday night in Miami.Dwyane Wade took the night off, explaining he was erring on the side of caution. He was originally in the lineup to play.“He wants me to do what’s best for my body,” Wade said, referring to head coach Erick Spoelstra. “I’ve been practicing very hard, going very hard. I could play, but I just think it’s smarter that in consecutive days of going so hard, just be smart today, rest a little bit, let my legs recover.”Bosh scored 21 points and as always, his shots were smooth and efficient. Bosh began the game with nine consecutive points. He had 19 points in the first half and finished the game 7 of 8 from the field and 6 of 6 from the free-throw line.With the exception of Bosh’s excellent performance, it was a typical preseason game –  it was sloppy and the Heat led by as many as 22 points in the second half.In the Heat’s first game of the 2013 NBA preseason, they beat the Hawks 92-87.Checkout the highlight of Monday’s game in the video below. read more

Number of coaches and wrestlers defend Jim Jordan

Richard Strauss, a former wrestling team physician and an assistant professor of medicine, is being investigated by Ohio State on allegations of sexual misconduct. Credit: Lantern file photoAfter accusations last week that Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan was aware of and kept quiet about alleged abuse by former Ohio State team doctor Richard Strauss, many players and coaches have come forward to defend the former assistant wrestling coach.The statements defending Jordan began Monday with a joint statement by six former coaches, including former Ohio State wrestling head coach Russ Hellickson. The defense of Jordan continued with a joint statement by 15 wrestlers on Tuesday and two more on Wednesday.“I am frankly pissed off at what they are doing to Jim Jordan. This is hysteria and politics running the narrative,” Hellickson told The Hill earlier this week. “If they are attacking him, why aren’t they attacking the 30 or 40 other coaches at OSU?”Statements being sent out defending Jordan have been put out through the public relations firm Shirley and Bannister, a conservative firm based out of Alexandria, Virginia. The wrestlers that defended Jordan on Tuesday said the alleged abuse was not as widespread as it is being made to seem, with one telling the Associated Press he knew nothing of any alleged abuse until claims arose this year.Following the joint statement on Tuesday, two more wrestlers spoke to CNN in defense of Jordan.One of the wrestlers, George Pardos, told CNN he had many interactions with Strauss and never experienced any attempted abuse.“If you’re sitting there saying everybody had the same experience with Dr. Strauss, that’s just not true,” Pardos said. “People are trying to assume this was a widespread problem.” read more
