Glass House Project to improve quality and availability of employment data

first_imgImage credit: Image:123rf The Glass House Project research will be used to expand IEA’s existing database covering employment within the global energy industry. The two parties will also aim to gather practical case studies on how companies, educational institutions, regions and governments are successfully managing the energy transition, skill needs, hiring challenges, and their training approaches to better inform other institutions on how best they can address similar challenges. Have you watched?Addressing the skills gap in the African landscape Laura Cozzi, chief energy modeller at the IEA, said: “IEA’s Sustainable Recovery Special Report found that emissions reductions, economic growth and rise in employment can go hand-in-hand if policies are designed in the right way. Improved tracking of energy employment is key to ensure we move towards net zero while ensuring good quality jobs. We are delighted by this collaboration and Enel Foundation’s support of this work. They bring a deep understanding of sector-specific environments, issues, and trends and an extensive network of companies and academia to validate and improve tracking.” Finance and Policy UNDP China, CCIEE launch report to facilitate low-carbon development IEA and the Enel Foundation will expand current methods for collecting energy sector employment data, standardise processes, and develop a coalition of the willing to contribute to the cause to advance the availability, granularity, and quality of the data.

Integrated betting markets & extended engagement with DFS

first_img Related Articles Share StumbleUpon IGT sanctions capped $300m senior debt note sale June 9, 2020 Share All-in Global: ‘Fantastyc’ markets around the world July 16, 2020 Shergul Arshad, the Founder of Mondogoal, spoke at BOS alongside Lottomatica’s Ubaldo Baldi, Oulala CEO Valery Bollier and Sportito CEO Riccardo Mittiga.Off the back of signing partnerships with Lottomatica, SISAL and more recently the Microgame Group in Italy, Arshad discussed the vast potential benefits for bookmakers to include a daily fantasy product.He said: “It poses a particularly interesting integration for live betting, for example showing the next goalscorer odds in a match when you are picking your team.”The Mondogoal white label games with both SISAL and Lottomatica soft launched for the Euros this summer and went live properly at the beginning of this domestic season.The aim is to implement big prize pools in conjunction with these two, and whilst Lottomatica’s Baldi stated that it’s hard to put a value on the DFS market right now, he stated his belief that it “will become a revenue stream in its own right and not just an acquisition or conversion tool”.With 57 million DFS players in the States, and 8.9 million of these playing regularly, the potential of this market is enormous but it’s chokablok with legality issues and costly courtroom tussles state to state. The European market may be smaller but the generation currently in its late teens is one which has grown up with fantasy, and undoubtedly a large number of these in the UK have played the Fantasy Premier League game with friends for some time.Arshad pointed to the extended engagement times of DFS products over betting, as players carefully peruse their teams and assess team news and data. Oulala’s Valery Bollier gave a nod to the epicentre of football being in Europe, the most watched league globally and stated that “DFS can provide a solution to optimise digital strategy.”There was definitely a buzz around this panel, which was chaired by Gemma Boore of Bates Well Braithwaite, at Betting on Sports and it seems highly likely that the UK will see its first major bookmaker DFS integration sooner rather than later.

Galway footballers injury crisis deepens for trip to Monaghan

first_imgThe Tribesmen, however, have been hit with further injury setbacks as Declan Kyne, Cillian McDaid and Sean Andy O’Ceallaigh (shoulder) will all be sidelined for a number of weeks, with Kyne (ankle) and McDaid (foot) set to miss the remainder of the league. Long term injuries to Damien Comer, Eamon Brannigan, Paul Conroy and Adrian Varley continue to be monitored, while John Daly has also not played due to injury since lining out against Mayo in the FBD League last month. With the Corofin contingent absent due to their upcoming All Ireland club semi final on February 16th, manager Kevin Walsh is facing something of a crisis heading to Iniskeen on Sunday. Galway and Monaghan had little or no history in the league until the sides drew 1-8 apiece in the league in 1981, a year in which Galway last went on to win the title. Since then, Galway have played Monaghan on 7 occasions, with Galway winning 4 and losing 3. Galway’s first win in Monaghan came in December 1990, when Conor O’Dea kicked 2-2 and Val Daly 1-1 in Clontibret as Galway won promotion that season from Division 3. Their next win came in 2012 when Alan Mulholland’s side won by 1-14 to 0-12 in Iniskeen, with Padraig Joyce kicking 0-6 and substitute Danny Cummins getting the goal. All of Monaghan’s league wins over Galway have been at home; in 1996 corner forward Declan Smyth kicked 1-7 in a comfortable 1-13 to 0-8 win in Clones, Paul Finlay (0-6) and Conor McManus (0-5) did the damage in 2011 in Iniskeen in a 0-19 to 0-14 win, while Finlay also kicked a last gasp winner in Clones in 2014 when Monaghan won by 0-13 to 0-12.Galway V Monaghan Previous Meetings1981 – Galway 1-8 Monaghan 1-8 – Castleblayney1991 – Galway 3-12 Monaghan 0-6 – Clontibret1996 – Monaghan 1-13 Galway 0-8 – Clones2010 – Galway 1-20 Monaghan 1-14 – Pearse Stadium2011 – Monaghan 0-19 Galway 0-14 – Iniskeen2012 – Galway 1-14 Monaghan 0-12 – Iniskeen2014 – Monaghan 0-13 Galway 0-12 – Clones2018 – Galway 0-17 Monaghan 1-10 – Pearse StadiumGalway and Monaghan have met twice in the championship: lastyear in the Super 8s when Monaghan won by 0-16 to 0-8 in Pearse Stadium and inthe 1938 All-Ireland Semi-Final when Galway were victorious by 2-10 to 2-3.print WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Email After a chastening 1-15 to 0-7 defeat to Dublin last Saturday night in Croke Park in the Allianz Football League, next up for Kevin Walsh’s side is a trip to Inishkeen to play Monaghan on Sunday (2pm). Both sides are on 2 points in Division 1 after Monaghan suffered a surprise defeat late on against Roscommon, so the loser next Sunday could find themselves in a battle to stay in the top flight. last_img read more
