Bloomington brings IMCA RaceSaver Sprints to Indiana

admin No Comments

first_imgBLOOMINGTON, Ind. (Jan. 22) – The 2015 season will be the first for IMCA and RaceSaver at a track with an already long and distinguished Sprint Car history. Bloomington Speedway features the IMCA Eagle Motor Sports RaceSaver Sprint Car division on Friday programs beginning April 17. IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Racing National, Allstar Performance State and local track points will be awarded through season championship night on Aug. 21. Weekly features will pay $600 to win and a minimum of $150 to start.“I like the total package of IMCA and RaceSaver,” explained third-year General Manager Kris Kirchner. “I come from the 410 (sprint car) world and know that people who want to get into that have to spend a lot of money.”“I’ve heard more and more about RaceSaver and know that a guy can get into the class, race and not be broke at the end of the day,” he added.Dan Roberts, a co-owner of the ¼-mile, high-banked clay oval located in south central Indiana, suggested track officials look into RaceSaver.“The RaceSaver engine package is much more affordable for the average person. The equation of the person driving the car is more important than how much money they spent,” Kirchner said. “Everything I’ve learned about RaceSaver is that the cars are affordable and reliable.” Bloomington hosted its first auto races in 1923 and now boasts grandstand seating for 3,500.IMCA last sanctioned a Sprint Car event in Indiana in the early 1970s.“Bloomington Speedway is a top-notch facility and a perfect weekly home for IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Cars,” said Jim Stannard, director of track relations for IMCA. “We look forward to partnering with Bloomington and helping this division grow.”last_img read more

New sculpture donated to USC’s Tutor Campus Center

admin No Comments

first_imgThe Ronald Tutor Campus Center is now home to an additional attraction: an extremely rare, 2,000-year-old ancient Greek sculpture, of which there is only one other known replica in existence currently residing in the Louvre in Paris.Love · The 2,000-year-old Dart Aphrodite is now housed in the Ronald Tutor Campus Center. The only other copy is in the Louvre. – Jennifer Schultz | Daily Trojan The Dart Aphrodite is a product of the ancient Roman practice of making copies of ancient Greek pieces to preserve aging artwork. USC’s Dart Aphrodite will be displayed outside the Admission Center on the second floor of the Campus Center against the recycled glass wall.The sculpture is a slightly larger than life-size head of Aphrodite, the ancient Greek goddess of love. The head is all that remains of the original piece, as the rest of the body has been lost over time.Part of the goddess’ nose has been scraped off, but overall the piece is in surprisingly good condition, said Cindy Robinson, educational program coordinator at the Campus Center.“This piece will be beautiful, convenient and educational,” Robinson said. “We’re going to have an artifact on campus and professors, students and guests alike are going to seek it out and study it.”In the mid-1990s, the piece’s owner, actress Jane O’Brien Dart, patron of the arts and donor of the Roski School of Fine Arts at USC, invited then-Dean of the School of Fine Arts John Pollini to visit her while the Dart Aphrodite was at her home in Los Angeles.“I thought [the Dart Aphrodite] was an interesting piece so I did more research on it and eventually wrote an article on the head,” said Pollini, who is now a professor of classical art and archeology in the College of Letters, Arts & Sciences.Pollini published his article 15 years ago, and when Dart passed away in April 2009, her son Stephen got in touch with Pollini and decided to donate the artwork to USC.“I had met Stephen earlier when I met Jane as I first saw the piece,” Pollini said. “He remembered me and my article and decided to donate the Dart Aphrodite to USC.”The sculpture was donated to USC’s archeology lab, where it arrived in late November for examination. Robinson said that although the archeology lab officially owns the piece, it is on permanent loan to the Campus Center.“We don’t have any kind of date set for when the piece might be removed,” Robinson said. “If it were to be removed, it would be in a very long time and it would have to be for extenuating circumstances.”After being examined at USC, the piece was sent to a shop in Pasadena for a custom-made glass installation case. Because of the specific style and weight of the sculpture, the installation piece includes a special mount that goes into a hole at the bottom of the neck.Pollini said that since the university does not currently have any other major pieces of ancient Greek or Roman art, the acquisition of the Dart Aphrodite is important to the USC community.“This is literally something you would possibly study in an art history or archeology-minded class, so the fact that we’re going to have it on campus and see it in person is going to be infinitely more valuable than studying it in a book,” Robinson said. “It really makes being able to study it in this context priceless.”last_img read more

Unibet falls foul with ‘sponsored’ Henderson tweet

admin No Comments

first_img The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has ruled that a tweet from the account of horseracing trainer Nicky Henderson promoting one of his blogs on Unibet’s content site did not qualify as ‘editorial content’ and should have been marked as a sponsored marketing communication.The tweet, posted on 27 October, stated: “We’re underway with the jumps and my exclusive @unibet blog is now ready to read …”. A link to the blog was included.Unibet said that it didn’t believe that this breached the CAP code as it did not consider the tweet to be a marketing communication. It responded that the firm had a reciprocal arrangement with Henderson, who was its brand ambassador. That arrangement required Henderson to display Unibet branding, but did not require him to tweet on the firm’s behalf and that it did not have any editorial control over his Twitter account.However Unibet’s case was severely undermined by its actual contract with Henderson, which appears to be a generic ambassadorial one and not tailored for this particular partner.The contract stated that Unibet paid Henderson to be an ambassador for its brand and included a term that stated that one of Henderson’s obligations as brand ambassador was to allow Unibet to manage, with his assistance, his social media activity throughout the term of the agreement. The contract stated that Henderson was required to start a Twitter account that would be managed by Unibet on his behalf, though he would have the right to approve all tweets sent on that account.Unibet said these were generic contract terms and did not ‘reflect the reality’ of the partnership with Henderson as he already had an existing Twitter account before the deal was agreed.The ASA said it conducted two tests as to whether the tweet was a marketing communication or editorial content: if Unibet had an agreement with Henderson and if the operator had any degree of control over the content of the tweet.On the first point the ASA said thatUnibet and Henderson had entered into an agreement whereby the racehorse trainer acted as a brand ambassador for Unibet, involving a range of activities, including a requirement that he published a blog on social media, and that he periodically updated his social media accounts. The conclusion being that Henderson had been paid by Unibet to promote the brand, including on social media.On the second point, because Unibet required Henderson to post about his blog on social media the ASA concluded that the operator did have control over the content of tweets relating to the blog and therefore the tweet was a marketing communication and should have been obviously identifiable as such.The ASA also added: “We noted that some of Mr Henderson’s tweets that were not marketing communications would identify Unibet by tagging Unibet into the post or included references to Unibet sponsored races. On that basis, we considered that it was not clear which tweets on Mr Henderson’s account were marketing communications for Unibet. The tweets for Mr Henderson’s blog, therefore, should have been identified as such.”Unibet and Henderson have been told that they must ensure that their future marketing communications were obviously identifiable as such, for example by using an identifier such as “#ad”.More thoughts on some of our inmates, continuing with Brain Power.

MLS 2019: Defending champion Atlanta faces competition in new-look league

admin No Comments

first_imgThe Crew is staying put in Ohio but has new owners, a new general manager and a new head coach. Even reigning champion Atlanta United looks different.Ahead of the big kickoff Saturday, we take a look at five key questions we hope to be able to answer between now and the MLS Cup in November.Will champions Atlanta hit the ground running with new men?Atlanta lost two of the most important players in its young history in Miguel Almiron and coach Gerardo “Tata” Martino since lifting the MLS Cup, but the squad still looks great. Pity Martinez is in to replace Almiron, Florentin Pogba will add depth in defense, and Brek Shea might finally be ready to fulfil his potential as he fills the void left by Greg Garza.Some concerns remain, however, and most center around new coach Frank de Boer. His 3-4-3 system should happily accommodate Ezequiel Barco and Martinez, but this is a make-or-break job for a man who is new to the league and must manage the expectations of a title defense.Pity can score from anywhere pic.twitter.com/VBXGLe9tlK— Atlanta United FC (@ATLUTD) February 9, 2019Are Ibrahimovic and Rooney able to go again?While Atlanta spent 2018 shaking off stereotypes about the typical profile of MLS stars, the Galaxy and DC United did the opposite. In came veterans Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Wayne Rooney — and both were great.Yet Ibrahimovic’s 22 goals could not carry the Galaxy to the playoffs, while Rooney and DC fell at the first hurdle in the postseason. Both LA and United look better prepared for challenges in 2019, but the continued good form of Ibrahimovic — 38 this month — and Rooney will surely shape their fortunes.2019 Im coming pic.twitter.com/Yvivq9cbk5— Zlatan Ibrahimović (@Ibra_official) February 18, 2019Could LAFC follow Atlanta as second-season contenders?Atlanta broke the mold for expansion sides when it reached the playoffs in its debut 2017 season and Los Angeles FC quickly followed suit 12 months later. Indeed, LAFC looked as though it might push the league’s more established clubs all the way for a time last year.Bob Bradley will hope to again replicate Atlanta’s success and that means delivering silverware. Playing with a very similar squad to last season, LA should expect to be in the mix.Elsewhere, Toronto FC and the Seattle Sounders, who contested the 2016 and 2017 MLS Cups, are usually good bets. However, Toronto endured a tumultuous offseason. The Reds brought in proven defender Laurent Ciman, but then lost Victor Vazquez and club icon Sebastian Giovinco and were thrashed 4-0 at minnows Independiente in the CONCACAF Champions League.Rough start. Second half at @BMOField next week.#TFCLive | #CAIvTOR | #SCCL2019 pic.twitter.com/mXfOOhdHDH— Toronto FC (@torontofc) February 20, 2019Can new boys Cincinnati compete without significant investment?Atlanta and LAFC have set a lofty standard in recent years for expansion sides, but Cincinnati, whose spending is comparatively modest, might well be aiming a little lower.Przemyslaw Tyton, Kendall Waston, Alvas Powell and Garza should at least provide a solid base, while Fanendo Adi and Kekuta Manneh have quality going the other way. At the other end of the spectrum from Atlanta and LAFC, Cincinnati will hope to avoid following in the footsteps of Minnesota United and Orlando City, who are yet to recover from poor debut campaigns. Change awaits in Major League Soccer as the new season looms.FC Cincinnati has arrived to grow the league to 24 teams, while Copa Libertadores finalist Guillermo Barros Schelotto has joined the Los Angeles Galaxy. We found our next national anthem singer. pic.twitter.com/EkpEbjEzhN— FC Cincinnati (@fccincinnati) February 18, 2019Who could follow Davies and Almiron as the next big-money export?This league, still just 23 years old, looks to be finally finding its feet in the global market, having brought in big fees from Bayern Munich for Alphonso Davies, and Newcastle United, which signed Almiron. Zach Steffen and Tyler Adams are set to star in Europe, too, as commissioner Don Garber positions MLS as a selling league.Further big outgoing deals will surely follow over the next 12 months. Luciano Acosta was linked with Paris Saint-Germain in January and there may be other suitors, while Josef Martinez’s big new Atlanta contract might only keep him Stateside for a short time. United States national team midfielders Cristian Roldan, Marky Delgado, Kellyn Acosta and Russell Canouse — all 23 — could represent good value.Miguel Almirón – fresh from his @premierleague debut – trains in Spain. #NUFC pic.twitter.com/fiKxuoqAyb— Newcastle United FC (@NUFC) February 12, 2019last_img read more
