Posted on by

Best bookmaker for MMA betting Tags: Online Gambling Sky Bet Betsafe Marathonbet bet365 888sport Unibet Betway William Hill Betfair Energy Bet NetBet Bet–at-HomeUFC/MMA promotions There were a number of bookies that offered specific promotions on MMA, in particular UFC 239. We were most impressed with the offers from BetVictor. At BetVictor, new customers could take advantage of enhanced odds offers on both the Jones v Santos and Nunes v Holm fights. Additionally, BetVictor also offered a series of price boosts.Sky Bet also offered a good range of MMA promotions. Enhanced Accas and price boosts were available on each featured fight, as well as price boosts on other fights taking place on the card.Other bookmakers that offered UFC and MMA-specific promotions included William Hill, Ladbrokes, Coral, Paddy Power and Boylesports.Conclusion We can see that a number of operators take MMA betting seriously. Interestingly, however some of the so-called big boys of UK online betting seem to be lagging behind some of their less illustrious competitors when it comes to MMA betting. If the popularity of the sport continues to grow, this could well give some smaller brands the chance to steal market share in other sports.About bettingexpert.com Providing expert tips and in depth betting theory, bettingexpert.com is the world’s biggest social network of sports betting tipsters.

We assessed the margins of each operator we researched to determine a top three.The following bookmakers offered the lowest margins for the UFC 239 fights between Jon Jones and Thiago Santos and Amanda Nunes and Holly Holm.For Jones against Santos, these bookies offered the lowest bookmaker margins. This was specific to the ‘To win fight’ market.1. Matchbook 2. bet365 3. BetsafeAt Matchbook, the bookmaker margin was 2.87%. At bet365 it was 3.90% and at Betsafe 4.34%.For Nunes against Holm the top three in the same market were:1. Sky Bet 2. Betsafe 3. Genting BetOur overall winner Sky Bet also came in number one place here. Its bookmaker margin was set at 2.62%. Betsafe offered 4.44%, while Genting Bet came in third with 4.45%.Other factors There were a number of other aspects we considered, starting with the offering of a statistics service.For punters new to betting on MMA, having easy access to previous results and fighter details can help them decide which wagers to place. However, only a small number of bookmakers offered a statistics function, with MMA stats available only at Marathonbet, William Hill and NetBet.888sport and Unibet have both stated that they will introduce an MMA stats service shortly, to complement the statistics they offer on other sports.Live streaming is another option often available for sports betting. For MMA, however, we couldn’t find any bookmaker that offered streaming on Jones v Santos or Nunes v Holm, nor on any fight taking place in UFC 239.This is more than likely due to UFC 239, and the specific fights we’ve mentioned, only being available on pay-per-view. It’s difficult for any online bookie to offer live streaming on these types of fights. In the future we could see MMA live streaming becoming available on selected fights on the undercard.In-play A number of the bookmakers analysed offered live betting opportunities.

With viewing figures at an all-time high, betting on the sport has also increased.A host of bookmakers are now offering MMA odds and this month we’ve compared their offerings to determine which operators offer MMA bettors the best range of betting options.Our research consisted of comparing and contrasting the number of markets available on selected MMA fights and bookmaker margins. The aim of our research was to find the best bookmaker for MMA odds, along with the best bookmaker for MMA betting in general. The data we gathered focused on two of the biggest MMA events of the year: the UFC 239 fights between Jon Jones and Thiago Santos and Amanda Nunes and Holly Holm.For our review, we examined 25 of the top bookmakers operating online in the United Kingdom. These were:With the exception of Titanbet, every bookmaker we looked at offered some form of MMA betting. A small number also offered in-play betting opportunities, MMA promotions and live streaming.Top bookmakers From our analysis we established our overall top three. These were:1. Sky Bet 2. Betsafe 3. MarathonbetWe put Sky Bet in top place for a variety of reasons. It offered a good range of markets on each fight we used in our research. In total, 19 markets were offered on each fight, with competitive prices meaning Sky Bet was also one of the best bookmakers for MMA odds.Sky Bet didn’t provide any statistics facilities or live streaming. However, there were a number of live betting markets available. Sky Bet was also one of the few bookies we analysed that offered UFC and MMA-specific promotions.Second placed Betsafe featured in our top three for lowest bookmaker margins for both Jones v Santos and Nunes v Holm. In addition, Betsafe covered most major MMA betting markets, along with a number of live betting options.Third placed Marathonbet didn’t offer as many different markets as many others included in our research. However, this operator excelled in other areas – its odds were extremely competitive and it complemented this by offering a statistics service, as well as in-play betting.Average number of markets covered One of the most important factors for bettors is finding bookmakers that offer a wide range of markets. Our research showed that the following bookmakers offered the highest number of MMA markets.=1. Betfair =1. Paddy Power 2. Sky BetThe two giants of UK online betting came joint first in this list. Betfair and Paddy Power, which merged in 2016 and are now under the umbrella of Flutter Entertainment, both offered an equal number of markets for both Jones v Santos and Nunes v Holm.There were 24 markets available on Jones v Santos. For Nunes v Holm, bettors could take their choice from 22 markets. For Jones v Santos, the list of markets available consisted of the following: Regions: UK & Ireland Marketing & affiliates Email Addresslast_img read more

Knight’s crusade is to give Apopka citizens a voice on City…

Posted on by

first_img Decision Apopka 2018Apopka City Commission Candidate Feature: Seat #1 Gene KnightBy Reggie Connell/Managing Editor of the Apopka VoiceGene Knight is a crusader. He is a voice crying out in the wilderness. For years, Knight says he has battled with the City of Apopka for action on a multitude of issues both big and small, but he may have found a unique way to enact change from within.Knight is running for Seat #1 on the Apopka City Commission against Suzanne Kidd, Theresa Mott, and Alexander Smith, but his true opponent seems to be City Hall.“I’ve had to fight to get things done like lighting, sidewalks, and trees taken down in certain areas,” he said. “But there are still trees down from the hurricane. There are potholes that haven’t been fixed. I know what the people of Apopka want, and a lot of issues are going unheard. I’m out there day-to-day and I see their needs. You shouldn’t have to push the issues to get someone to take care of it. I want it to be that everyone matters and everyone’s voice is heard. They (the City Council) are listening to us talk, but they’re not hearing us. I want to change that.”Gene KnightKnight is a lifetime Apopkan. He went to school at Lovell Elementary, Lockhart Middle School, and Apopka High School. He worked at local companies his entire adult life and even lived in Apopka while serving as an Army reservist for nine years. He has a lot of thoughts about the city he loves, the mayor, the City Council, the budget, and how to make things better for ordinary residents.“We’re too divided,” said Knight. “We need to concentrate on all of Apopka. A lot of it is going downhill, and eventually, those areas will create crime and diminish Apopka’s appearance. I believe we are concentrating on one area of Apopka and not all areas.”He described that one area as Rock Springs, Errol Estate and the northwest corridor of Apopka in general. Knight sees the big picture, but he also wants to take care of small but important details.“I’ve been in Apopka my whole life. I’ve seen the good and the bad. It’s grown over the 50 years I have been here. New people don’t see that. I think it’s growing too fast. We need the necessary infrastructure in place before we grow. Every school is overcrowded. We can’t overgrow if we don’t have things in place. I do want to see Apopka grow, but I also want to see sidewalks for children to walk on. There should be more of them, and we should manage our growth better.”He also believes the budget could be managed better, in particular, management of the General Fund reserves, which he believes Apopka Mayor Joe Kilsheimer used to balance the budget.“I disagree with the way he (Kilsheimer) handles the reserves,” Knight said. “Reserves are for emergency purposes, not to make your budget. I’d like to go through the budget line by line and pull out things that aren’t necessary at this point. Our budget definitely needs to be managed better. We spend a lot of money on studies. I think it goes overboard. Like the City Center study. I think that was way overboard and it didn’t accomplish anything.”He is also critical of Kilsheimer about the sale of the property in which the City Center will be built, and the amount of time it is taking for completion.“I disagree with the way the City Center was handled. I think we sold the property for too low a price. We should have gotten more money and it’s taking too long. His term is almost over and there is still nothing tangible to see.”Knight is running for Seat #1, which Commissioner Billie Dean has held for six terms. Dean announced his retirement in 2017, but Knight doesn’t believe the seat belongs to anyone in particular.“I believe (Commissioner) Billie Dean is a good guy. I don’t believe in all of his policies, but I don’t believe in all of anyone’s policies. But this seat isn’t Billie Dean’s, it’s the people’s seat.”Knight acknowledges that Dean was the biggest proponent for South Apopka on the City Council, and he wants that to be a priority in the coming term if he is elected.“We definitely need to look into South Apopka. It’s talked about, but I don’t see anything being done to improve it. We all should be equal. Our concern should be for everyone, not just an area or two.”After two polls conducted by The Apopka Voice, Knight placed second in both behind Kidd, who also leads him significantly in fundraising. However, this isn’t thwarting his efforts. In fact, it almost sounds like that’s part of the plan.“I’m the kind of person that when I take on something, I take it head on,” he said. “I want to get the word out there myself. Of course, I’ll need some money to get signs and things, but I want to go out and meet the people door-to-door. That’s the way to get people out to vote. I’m not running for the office, I’m running for the people.”Knight had no fundraising goals when he began his campaign last March, but he does have access to nearly 5,000 members on the local Facebook page Apopka Then and Now as its founder and administrator. Knight has taken a traditional campaign approach that includes knocking on doors, modest signage, and believes the passion he has for Apopka will make the difference.“I think I can speak more for the citizens of Apopka. I see where they are coming from. I’ll be a voice for all citizens, not just one particular area. When someone has a problem, they should be able to talk to a commissioner. I don’t see that happening now. They don’t see the problem areas. Some aren’t listening, but I am.” UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply TAGSApopka City Commission Seat #1Gene Knight Previous articleKilsheimer and Nelson differ on the budget debateNext articleLeroy Bell rings an audacious tone in his quest for City Council seat Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.center_img Apopka City Hall Please enter your comment!

The single-family house is located in Bisceglie, one of the most idyllic and charming seaside resorts in the Italian Southern region of Apulia. This coastal area has numerous residential and touristic households and is reached by all public utilities, even though it is outside the urban area of Bari, the nearest big city. Save this picture!© Sergio CamploneThis house, set in the midst of a typical Mediterranean scenery, was designed as an open space in harmony with the surrounding nature. It stands out of its setting but it is also integrated into it; the surrounding countryside, the coastline, the sky and the light become part of it. On one hand materials and colours are those traditionally used in Apulian architecture, on the other hand the innovative design, stripped of all decorations, follows a strictly linear pattern that pays tribute to the rationalist legacy. Save this picture!© Sergio CamploneOn the ground floor, the house project has an articulated volume that goes upwards and creates a tower overlooking the central patio. The L-shaped higher floor is more compact and intimate, suitable as sleeping area. The front of the house has a metallic cover structure gripped to a “glass box” hosting the living area. The colours of this area are reflected in a large water pool located underneath. Save this picture!© Sergio CamploneThe central patio is the hub of the whole project. Here is the entrance to the living room, designed as an open space with glass walls overlooking the garden. The kitchen and other rooms with different sizes are also visible from here, mingling together without blurring. An open staircase leads to the sleeping area of the higher level. Save this picture!© Sergio CamploneOur project is food for thought on the possibility for architecture to generate fruitful interactions between artificially designed and natural environments. The elaborate distribution of space was highly influenced by ecological design, aiming to make full use of the prevailing solar and wind energy of this area. This architectural approach is clearly visible in the shape of the building, in the position of the openings, in the search for excellent exposition to the light and the sun in all seasons and in the study of the mutual shading between the house structures and the surrounding nature. Save this picture!© Sergio CamploneThis villa was built following the rules of sustainability and of the Mediterranean passive house. Sustainable building technologies with zero consumption were used. Its ultra low energetic needs are all covered by a photovoltaic system with an output of 5 KW, which is fully integrated in the roof. Its energetic footprint is null as all energy efficiency measures were adopted: its caulking system creates no thermal bridge; its insulated windows have triple glazing for low emissions and strict control of airproof sealing; heating is produced by an air to air heat pump and there is a heat recovery ventilation system. An electric boiler produces hot water with heat pump technology. Save this picture!First Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow less”Austria. Naturally Yours” Competition Entry / pendaUnbuilt ProjectC.

The longitudinal field is open to the south and the view of mountain Youhtas. How can a linear residence deal with the intense cretan light? The house necessarily unfolds along the south side, the side of the sun: through a double curvature the building is bend by the power of the sun’s path from east to west.Save this picture!© Petros PerakisSave this picture!PerspectiveSave this picture!© Petros PerakisThe house is located in a quiet new neighborhood of the Mediterranean city of Heraklion, not far form the city’s center. The flat, elevated corner plot offers views of the city and has a southern orientation. This family house was designed for the needs of a young couple and its two small children. It develops in four levels, hosting the living quarters at the overground floor level and the sleeping quarters at the groundfloor level. The latter, is open to the garden that is shaded by the main elevated volume which hosts another private bedroom and two open-air spaces excised from its two corners. The fair-faced concrete volume functions as a shelter both for the garden and the subjacent main living space. Its bright color is contrapuntal of the olive-green base that accommodates the other bedrooms -which will eventually be hidden by the climbing plants of the tensed inox-rope fence.Save this picture!© Petros PerakisThe house is born by its southern, extrovert, cretan field. From the outset, the sculptural gesture arises from this sunny condition: the building is bent by the sun. The elevated concrete facade is without openings, except from an excision at the upper corner which reveals an outdoor space open to western views of the city. The lower curve receives the light at the intermediate main level, incorporating the staircase to the upper floor. The volume acts not only as a receptor of the private upper premises of relaxation, but also as a shelter for the semi-open expansion of the residence and its garden. Its interior ends in a hidden excision of the roof, at the eastern corner. There, a small pool serves as an outdoor bath. The lower level which is developed as a rigid dark base is also introverted. The handling of curves in this work aims at a tense handling of void and light. Thus, a successive interpenetration of closed, semi-open and open-air spaces is created: The house is curved, twisted, excised, following the field’s forces -natural or urban. The essentially playful façade seems to enjoy the contrapuntal complicity of its neighboring mass-produced apartment blocksSave this picture!© Petros PerakisThe structural design is inseparable from the form itself: the supporting at the garden’s level is progressively altering from a circular metallic column, to a square concrete one, in order to conclude to the corner monolithic wall upon which the façade rests freely. Its eastern vertical slot allows the thermal expansion and contraction. In the interior, the vertical blinds offer privacy and protect from the eastern light, passing their deep red color to its innermost recess. The monochromatic kitchen recedes to the west, while its perforated metallic shutter acts as a magnet of light during both day and night. The underground study area, as well as the staircase leading to it, are of dark green colour -a natural continuation of the exterior garden. In the parking space, a circular neon wreath around the central column is complementary to the car’s manually rotating ring. In the lighter upper floor instead, it is the glass pane frames that are curved following the vaulted roof. The metal column remains oxidized and dark -while the lighting spots run along its axis. The west facade remains blind, as well as the eastern one -concealing a liquid, receptive interior.Save this picture!© Petros PerakisProject gallerySee allShow lessDenise Scott Brown Wins 2017 Jane Drew PrizeArchitecture NewsOberholz Mountain Hut / Peter Pichler Architecture + Pavol Mikolajcak ArchitektenSelected Projects Share Save this picture!© Petros Perakis+ 35 Share Photographs:  Petros Perakis Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ArchDaily Residence in Crete / Tense Architecture NetworkSave this projectSaveResidence in Crete / Tense Architecture Network ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/804838/residence-in-crete-tense-architecture-network Clipboard Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/804838/residence-in-crete-tense-architecture-network Clipboard Greece CopyHouses•Greece Projects Architects: Tense Architecture Network Year Completion year of this architecture project 2016 Houses “COPY” Year:  Residence in Crete / Tense Architecture Networklast_img read more

What are your hopes dreams and ambitions? “It’s important to get personal,” says Kristian. “Our clients come to us with a desire to create something more than just a design aesthetic. They like the idea that we can help them reflect who they are and what their home means to them. We question how they live, open up new ways of celebrating this life. This whole process is about them making their personal mark, telling a story that will last through the ages.”Save this picture!© Michael SinclairJust as each project resonates with an intimate narrative, every design also has a strong connection with the environment and the forces of nature.

The past 40 years of rapid urbanization in China witnessed the hollowing-out evolution in the disappearance of millions of natural villages. As ecological protector, cultural heritage, and a highly livable environment, rural settlements have been underestimated and neglected in its resourcefulness and values. The natural humanistic values of rural settlements need to be reactivated through new production cycle and lifestyle. Shanghai, having the highest GDP in China and being a world-famous metropolis, is also facing difficulties and conflicts between its urban and suburban composition. Those living in the city are constantly under the pressure of high living costs, when the declining of rural communities and human settlements in suburbs is happening at the same time.Save this picture!northwestern aerial view.

However, his residence in the urban area of Shanghai cannot provide comfortable and independent living conditions for the elderly, who cannot acclimatize herself to the narrow dwelling of the penthouse on the highest floor. The Lao Song couple dreamed of returning to their hometown in Nansong Village from the urban area of Shanghai, to demolish their dilapidated house, and to rebuild a new house suitable for both the elderly and the young. In order to help relieve the living pressure of their daughter and son-in-law, Lao Song and his wife thought about inviting the parents of their son-in-law, who are in bad health conditions, to return to the Fengxian countryside together with them and take care of each other in their old ages.

Image © Li YaoThe design followed the spatial pattern of the southward-facing, two-openings layout, but it opens up an atrium. The courtyard is traditionally common in local farm house, but not commonly found in new dwellings built in last 20 years, and thus the courtyard as center of space and daily activities is formed. Five bedrooms designed for their unique users and public spaces of different scales are arranged around the atrium, forming an interconnection of independence, privacy, and publicity, as well as a sense of ritual and a sense of belonging.Save this picture!central atrium.

Image © Li YaoAcross the atrium, the dining room and the open kitchen on the north side are places where the whole family could chat while doing their housework. Both gas stove and earthen stove are placed in the kitchen, so the elderly, who may not be able to use the gas stove, can cook as well.Save this picture!stairs lead to 2F.

Standing on the stainless steel character “宋” — the Chinese surname of Lao Song’s family — inlaid on the ground in the middle of the atrium, Lao Song could get a strong sense of belonging and embrace the earth where they stand as well as the sky above them.Save this picture!skylight above the stairs.

Image © Li YaoTwo adjacent bedrooms are arranged on the south side of the second floor, with an open family room outside where the two old couples could chat without going downstairs. Close to the family room is a wheelchair accessible restroom. On the north side of the second floor is the bedroom of Lao Song’s daughter and son-in-law, so that the young couple can enjoy their relatively independent space. The parents of Lao Song’s son-in-law sometimes have to use wheelchairs, but there is no lift installed at their residence in urban Shanghai and as a result, they rarely go downstairs. The ramp is mainly designed to facilitate the wheelchair users to maneuver between different stories, as well as carrying out outdoor exercises, getting exposed to the fresh air outside and for socializing with the neighborhood. The ramp serves as an alternative path in feeling the space created by the building.Save this picture!corner of the family room on 2F. Image © Li YaoSmall openings on the walls are placed between the old lady’s bedroom and the living room on the first floor, rooms of the two parents and also between the bedroom and the family room, which creates more interactions between family members and activities-the elderly could be seen from the public space and they themselves could feel the ambiance of family activities inside their bedrooms. There are mirrors at staircases on the first and second floor and at corners of the hallway. No dead end exists in the public space, so that the elderly and the children can take care of each other. In the small backyard behind the house, there is a kitchen garden where the old lady could grow vegetables as she likes.Save this picture!small opening on the wall. Image Courtesy of AZL ArchitectsOn the one hand, China is stepping into an aging society, but facilities for the elderly in large cities are often in shortage and unaffordable. On the other hand, a large number of old people are living with the lack of social interactions in the “hollowed-out” villages in the suburbs. It is a long journey to effectively utilize the idle resources to rebuild a healthy living community for the elderly, and to form a living unity, an emotional unity, and a production unity with a sense of belonging. For Lao Song, who originally lives in the urban area of Shanghai, his simple wish to live a happy life is gradually being realized like this. The young are working hard and living in the city, while the elderly return to the nearby suburbs. The close and well-cultivated kinship of a big family tightly connects the urban and rural spaces.Save this picture!garden with planting patch.

The new job will include regular patrols to check that street fundraisers are complying with the code of practice.The new quality and compliance assistant will work with PFRA’s head of standards Nick Henry, enabling the organisation to expand its work both in London and across the country to towns and cities where it has not yet been able to conduct this monitoring.Mark Carter-Nesbitt, Managing Director of fundraising agency Urban Leaf and a member of PFRA’s personnel sub-committee, said: “Since Nick Henry was appointed as head of standards last April, PFRA has already doubled the number of mystery shops carried out each month.“The appointment of a quality and compliance assistant is a natural progression in our expanding professional standards role and will add significant value to the excellent work Nick is already doing in providing PFRA members, gatekeepers and the general public with a robust resource for monitoring and improving standards across the spectrum of face-to-face activity.”www.pfra.org.uk Howard Lake | 15 October 2010 | News PFRA to expand its monitoring of best practice among street fundraiserslast_img read more
