Coming in third was bet365, with a 5.54% share, followed by Oddschecker in fourth, with 5.10%.The UK’s leading high street bookmaker brands were conspicuous by their absence, with William Hill just missing out on the top ten. The operator appeared as a result for 2.70% of betting-related searches.The report monitors Google searches to assess how many times each brand appears in the results, as well as specific search terms (such as horse racing tips), within each search theme, and across every betting-related category.It also assessed the most popular terms searched by punters, with football leading the way in the UK. The sport saw search activity spike in July, during the summer’s FIFA World Cup, highlighting the positive impact of seasonal events.Interest in tennis appears to be falling, with search volume falling 50% year-on-year by July 2018. However Pi Datametrics noted that this could have been as a result of unusually high search volume around 2017 Wimbledon Women’s Final, which saw strong favourite Venus Williams defeated by underdog Garbiñe Muguruza.This was also the case in horse racing, with search volume dropping 20% between March 2016 and March 2018. The sport tends to see search activity spike in March – around the Cheltenham Gold Cup – and April, when the Aintree Grand National takes place.Despite seeing search volume decline, horse racing still leads the way in the number of searches, with an average monthly search volume of 675,033 between December 2017 and November 2018. The sport’s cost per click averaged at £6.30 over this period.It led football, the second most popular sport searched, by a fair distance.

Vote for Mayor and Seat #1 in The Apopka Voice online…

first_img December 16, 2017 at 8:04 am Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. December 2, 2017 at 1:35 pm Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 The Anatomy of Fear December 8, 2017 at 2:36 pm Reply December 2, 2017 at 12:39 pm By the way Jeff, I am just now seeing your response and that is why I am answering you here on the Apopka Voice. I am not the one who stated that we have too many fire stations….I didn’t say that, not me, but I will tell you exactly what gripes me big time. The fire department employees are treated so special, the silver spoon raised bunch, that get all the praise, glory, pats on the back and constant promotions ( but not this many at once because of the election) and constant wage increases that come with the promotions while other city employees are treated like the “red-headed stepchildren” of the city. Many of them hardly get promoted, and have been in some of the same positions a long time….and they do equally dangerous work and bust their humps out in all kinds of weather, and they don’t get the hoopla that you fire department employees enjoy….You think I am being unfair? Sorry. All you all think of is your inclusive extended Apopka fire family. Apopka guy Reply Wish there were a write-in candidate allowed for Apopka Mayor, as I was really for Mayor Juana……. December 8, 2017 at 3:19 pm Mama Mia Mama Mia We are so fortunate to have the diligent, fast responsive fire department. We speak from experience having had occasion to need them twice. They are the best! Mama Mia Jack Martin Reply Reply Reply Jeff, I expected comments from you. After all, you are the AFD’s number #1 cheerleader every time I look at the social media regarding the fire department. So you say you are “little biased”???? Please….Look Jeff, I am glad you have retired with the AFD with 31 years service…congratulations for the hard work and dedication. I am not knocking the fire department, and their hard work, experience, skills, and that one day any of them could pay the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty. This is the reality. What I am suggesting is that this mass promotion ceremony of the fire department employees looks “very suspect” as to the timing of these mass promotions….right before the city election, as in “trying to gain votes”….if you don’t think so, Jeff, fine, whatever. If I were one of the city employees getting a promotion, it would not matter to me the reason either, I would be jumping for joy too……… Seems like I remember a discussion a good while back of putting a temporary fire station out at NW Recreation Complex, until one could be built, and it was shot down, but I see this temporary fire station, now at the new hospital property, has been okayed and in operation. The only one in the country, so I understand…. Why one place is okay, but the other wasn’t? They said that at a temporary station at the NW, the fire equipment couldn’t be protected enough??? Yes – Mayor Juana has a lot of play in the decision making for all politicians from this point forward!! And how about updating our ROAD INFRASTRUCTURE. That is where we are really hurting!!! December 2, 2017 at 3:45 pm December 6, 2017 at 9:05 am Barbara McLeod, I am just now seeing your above posting……Barbara, your question you asked me, about have I ever considering getting a job?…… aimed to insult me, is deplorable. I am retired, for your information. Sorry, if that bothers you so much…. How I spend my time, is my business, and none of your business. Mama Mia December 2, 2017 at 1:21 pm Reply Reply Mama Mia December 2, 2017 at 1:27 pm Oh, we know that those poor souls in the fire department weren’t making enough wages….right????? ha ha….Have you all seen some of the personal vehicles they drive???….wow…!!! The mayor had to impress the hospital’s main man, I guess, plus, the biggy is, IT IS ELECTION TIME….!!! And the mayor wants their votes! Mama Mia There is absolutely no excitement in the air, at all, for this election coming up in Apopka. It is boring, to say the least. Why should I expect anything else? A boring town, a boring election……. Reply Reply Reply Reply December 2, 2017 at 1:41 pm All that is on the news nationally is Trump getting away with everything, men in power getting away with sexual misconduct and harassment, and locally, in the central Florida area, the only news is the constant shootings incidents, and car jackings that are getting way too common…. time to cut off the news, and listen to more music. Reply Mama Mia The Apopka Voice Reader PollDecision Apopka 2018On Sunday, December 3rd, Apopka’s municipal elections will be 100 days away. If this were a horse race, we would be at that curve in the track where the stretch run becomes visible.And 100 days will go fast.It’s been a long, plodding, mostly quiet campaign cycle thus far that started a year before Election Day. In that period, most of the candidates have organized their campaign staffs, raised money, created a plan, and kept a low profile. Some have been at it for quite awhile, others just recently entered, and one is still waiting for an opponent.But one thing is for certain… the quiet campaigns of 2017 will transition into a 2018 model will lead to a much higher visibility in the community.Who will you vote for in the City Commission Seat #1, and Apopka Mayor elections?Very soon, Apopka can expect to see display advertising, bumper stickers, yard signs, and knocks on their doors from these candidates hoping to occupy seats on the City Council.The names Kilsheimer, Nelson, Velazquez, Kidd, Knight, Mott, and Smith will be abundantly more visible as the candidates for Apopka Mayor, and City Commission Seats #1 and #2 begin to roll out their messages on how they would lead Apopka. The Apopka Voice has promised to keep its readers, and the voters of Apopka informed on this historic election, and this is the first step.Where do these races stand?The Apopka Voice Reader Poll is the first of the campaign season. It was published at noon on Friday, December 1st, and closes at noon on Monday, December 4th, at which time we will publish its results.This is not a scientific poll. The margin of error is unknown, but it should reflect a snapshot of where our readers stand, with approximately 100 days to go before Election Day. So vote for the candidates you think will best lead this community into its promising future, and have a great weekend Apopka.Editor’s Note: Commissioner Diane Velazquez is up for re-election for Seat #2 in 2018, but at the time of publication does not have an opponent. Therefore the Seat #2 election is not up for polling. Editor’s Note: The polling system used by The Apopka Voice will accept only one vote per IP address.ProceedProceed December 2, 2017 at 5:00 pm Mark S Mama Mia Wish there was a write-in candidate allowed for Apopka Commission Seat #1, as I would have voted for Mama Mia…… Just look at how our government is operating currently in Washington…..votes taken right before 2 am! on 500 pages of legislation, that have been amended, and scratched through, rewritten, crossed out, and penned in, and with only a couple of hours to even read what is there, without time to read it all, or study the 500 pages over, plus a call to postpone the vote until couple days later, and the GOP vote NO to that two day delay to give time to read it all… and then the GOP proceed to vote for the legislation, to cut taxes on the wealthiest of the wealthy, and corporations, and stick it to everybody else…..shameful!!! Just pass anything to GET ‘ER DONE, so Trump can claim a victory…. A win for Trump’s own wallet……. Wish there was two alternate candidates for Apopka Commission Seat #2, as I would have voted for Greg Jackson’s candidates of choice, the dog, or the cat………. Not to mention that Aporka, Hungary folks can vote for this city election poll here on the Apopka Voice….or the Russians over in Moscow, or how about these fine folks???….the inmates sitting in the Florida prisons… I know who they will vote for! Ha ha……!!! Mama Mia Reply I saw the photo of the fire department ceremony of the newly hired, the middle section of the other promotions, and the bottom group who were promoted lieutenants….I see NO DIVERSITY in this group picture….I have listened to the constant talk at the city council meetings of complaints by people who state there is no diversity at the city, and I myself have at times thought, that they were just crying “wolf” constantly….but just look at the photo…..I think it is not just a matter of these people complaining about diversity and crying wolf! Examine the photo! Where is the diversity in this photo? I saw the photo in the Apopka Chief Newspaper of the 33 fire department members who were newly hired, the others promoted and the rest of the others promoted to Lieutenant positions…..can we say TAX INCREASE? December 2, 2017 at 2:57 pm Shirley Studenc Please enter your name here Reply Mama Mia Reply For instance, the city construction crew have to climb down into holes, with risk of cave-ins, working down in standing water at times up to their crotches, cold weather, blazing hot sun, working around very dangerous natural gas lines digging near them, that could blow them to kingdom come! Fiber optic lines, underground electrical lines, that could fry them with one wrong move. Heavy construction equipment that could crush them, or touch a power line, and out on the roadways where they could get hit by vehicles, as they repair or install water, sewer, and re-use lines to supply the city’s residents utility needs. Tell me Jeff, when was the last time you saw a banquet, or plaques handed out to those employees at the city for their hard work, or God-forbid, a promotion or raise…plus you fire department guys and police have a much better pension plan than the general employees. Were you aware of that other than just the per hour pay???center_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Reply Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Reply December 8, 2017 at 2:39 pm Reply December 7, 2017 at 9:28 pm Reply Reply Mama Mia December 8, 2017 at 2:12 pm Not to mention there is an allegation that was brought up at a previous city council meeting, that the monies donated and raised for the “Festival of the Trees” Christmas displays, that is suppose to support the Apopka Historical Museum (that is what it was said the money was to go to) was used for the Apopka Fire Department employees to go to a fire competition out of state….was it NY, not sure, anyway, it is an allegation that was made by someone at the council meeting, and here is what is interesting….THERE WAS NO DENYING THAT ALLEGATION at that meeting….??? Reply Unbelievable comments here about our fire department. I may be a little bias being I had the pleasure to serve this community for 31 years at the AFD before retiring. First of all the addition of the fire station on the north side of the city is way overdue. With the growth that has already happened north of Ponkan Road it was warranted. Response times are critical with fire and emergency medical services. The temporary fire station that has opened with the new hospital campus in the southwest section of the city is a forward thinking idea by the department administrative staff. The growth is coming and we have to be ready for it instead of playing catch up. The men and woman that make up your ISO Class 1 fire department work very hard and could pay the ultimate sacrifice at any time. The departments competitive wages are what keep good people here, and bring the best candidates from all over the state and other departments here. Why would you want anything different ? As far as the personal vehicles of the departments members being real nice, I am glad they have the ability to earn a wage so they can have nice things. As a city taxpayer I want the absolute best trained, properly staffed and equipped firefighters and police officers protecting me and my family. That takes a commitment from our city leaders, and yes you the taxpayer. 28 COMMENTS TAGSDecision Apopka 2018 Previous articleMustangs face another heavyweight on its path to a state championshipNext articleApopka resident files to run for Orange County School Board District 7 Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Barbara McLeod Reply Reply Even the police department employees aren’t as constantly honored at the city (although it is a lot) as you fire department family….just look at the extreme danger the police face!

Reply December 8, 2017 at 2:26 pm It is time for someone to stand up for the general employees who are ignored like they don’t exist! You fire guys get to sit around, and chow down, and sleep at the fire stations, waiting for the calls to come in, and earning BIG BUCKS while there is also other city employees out busting their humps in all kinds of weather, that is equally as dangerous, if not more dangerous, with NO THANK YOU….

Mama Mia Mama Mia December 2, 2017 at 12:37 pm Another thing, all these trips out of town across the nation, maybe even internationally, to go to these competitions of fire department physical agility tests….lot of money being spend for airfare, hotels, meals, and whatever else….should the taxpayers of this city have to foot the bill for you all’s fun and games??? I don’t think so. You all need to stay here in this city and look out for our residents and their safety! Reggie, as I was playing around to vote, one of the candidate’s bubble circles automatically got blackened in, and that was not the one I was going to vote for, so I didn’t click the vote bar, but exited the article, and came back in, and did vote then clicking the bubble, and it was okay, as I was the one who clicked the bubble circle, but like I said, the first time I tried, it automatically colored in the bubble of one of the candidates, and I didn’t even touch it myself, I swear!…..weird, weird, strange….. Flori-duh voting is back again to plague us voters….lol! Even with no hanging chads….lol! If this voting poll “runs out of ballots”, like the last real election, Reggie, you gonna have some ‘plaining to do ….ha ha Mama Mia Reply December 16, 2017 at 8:15 am Please enter your comment! December 2, 2017 at 1:43 pm December 8, 2017 at 3:08 pm Mama Mia Some times I think we have to many fire stations. I love the job AFD does and they are well trained. Maybe it is a little over kill in the city’s part. Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter People. Let’s not forget Kilsheimer had the breaking vote and voted to spend 5 mil over the next 5 years for red light cameras. Get him out. Nope won’t get my vote. December 2, 2017 at 12:41 pm Reply Mama Mia The fire department is the silver spoon raised baby of the COA! They get it all, the glory, the money, the praise, everything!!!

El Carajo house is located in Los Salados ecological park in La Fe dam, 30 miles south-east of Medellin. Its core values are rooted in respectful dialogue with the environment, promoting multiple relationships with the landscape and in the translation of elements of traditional architecture, in line with the demands of contemporary life components.Save this picture!Ground Floor Plan+ 23Make part of landscapeThe particular place with its geographic, landscape and environmental characteristics, were determinant in the volumetric configuration, the siting and spatial layout of the house.Save this picture!© Isaac RamírezThe north facade (convex) is composed of concrete walls, pierced by deep openings that frame the surrounding landscape and accompany the main circulation. In the center of this façade a black volume (vestibule) stands to provide access and help organize the interior circulation. On the side walls, small openings allow a more intimate relationship with vegetation. More transparent and open to the landscape, the south facade has a slight concavity as an attempt to dialogue with the organic form of the dam. The roof bends to face the dam separating itself from the facade and creating a gap under the eaves, a threshold that reduces tension between interior and exterior.The house is therefore a simple horizontal volume that sits gently following the way of natural terrain, in order to become an element of the landscape.Save this picture!Cross SectionSave this picture!© Nicolás MántarasCelebrating the traditionThe longitudinal configuration of the house facing the landscape through a wide corridor, refers to the traditional types of Colombian Andes’ architecture. From a distance the building is perceived as an ordinary house but when approaching the particular details become visible responding to the requirements of contemporary living and the specific desires of its inhabitants.Both owners and architects agreed to develop a country house away from the standards of urban housing and achieve a cozy and comfortable space for relaxation. That was how it was decided to build the house with natural materials that act in consonance, noble materials and touchable to the sight materials that show their age at the time like the concrete made with local sand, unpolished wood and stones from the region when in contact with the light were able to produce a warm atmosphere and a natural feel in the space.Save this picture!© Carlos PardoBioclimatic DesignWhen placed over the Andes at an altitude of 2,100 meters above sea level, the temperature ranges between 12 ° C in the morning and over 22 ° C in the afternoon. This condition led us to propose passive ventilation and lighting solutions, thinking in avoid the use of additional technologies that demand unnecessary energy and high costs.The roof leans towards the rising sun with the intention of capturing solar energy and heat the house in the morning. In the opposite direction of the inclination, the height attained by the cover facilitates air circulation throughout the day by maintaining a constant temperature inside. The wide eaves also help protecting the facades of the heavy rain and insolation. Additionally they allow continuous windows on top of the volume of concrete, allowing light controlled entry into interior spaces giving a natural feel.Save this picture!© Alejandro OchoaOriginally published on 25 September, 2014Project gallerySee allShow lessLocal House / Studio BrightSelected ProjectsHaus der Schüler / Metaraum Architekten BDASelected Projects Share Houses Manufacturers: Argos, El Cedro Rojo, Fiberglass Colombia, Montajes del Acero, MumaCoordinadores De Proyecto:Carlos A.

TCU leads SMU 28-17 at half

He’s worked in everything from sports to student organizations at TCU, and recently began blogging with the Dallas Morning News. In his spare time, Grant enjoys tweeting far too much, pretending he knows more than he does about Premier League soccer, and listening to the music of Kanye West. printThe TCU Horned Frogs have bounced back from an early SMU Mustang scoring drive and hold a 28-17 lead at halftime in the Battle for the Iron Skillet.The Frogs lost starting cornerback Ranthony Texada to injury midway through the second quarter, and TCU head coach Gary Patterson said in a halftime radio interview that the sophomore is likely out for the rest of the season.Trevone Boykin shook off two early overthrows and posted 242 yards passing with two touchdowns to go along with 53 yards rushing and a TD on the ground.Wide receiver Josh Doctson has three catches for 122 yards and a touchdown. The senior’s shortest reception measured 29 yards.For the Mustangs, quarterback Matt Davis has put his athleticism on display. The junior has 149 yards passing and a touchdown along with 49 yards rushing, most of which have come on scrambles that TCU’s defensive line has had a tough time defending.TCU has largely relied on big plays to score. The Frogs are averaging 12.1 yards per play, while SMU has marched methodically down the field at a pace of 5.7 yards per play.How the first half unfoldedThe Frogs were on their heels defensively after SMU received the opening kickoff. Two personal fouls on TCU allowed the Mustangs to pick up large chunks of yardage, and Davis’s scrambling ability gave him time to find Kevin Thomas on a crucial red zone third down to set up a Xavier Jones touchdown run that put SMU up 7-0. Trevone Boykin was nearly picked off on his first two passes of the game before recovering to find Ty Slanina on an out route to pick up a much-needed first down for the Frogs. Two plays later, speedy slot receiver KaVontae Turpin turned a 3-yard slant pass into a 61-yard touchdown to even the score at 7-7. SMU scored a field goal on a drive that was powered by acrobatic catches from Courtland Sutton and Ryheem Malone. TCU answered back, using a deep ball from Boykin to Josh Doctson to the SMU one-yard line to set up Aaron Green for an easy TD run to put the Frogs up 14-10 with 3 minutes to go in the first quarter. Defensive end Josh Carraway sacked Davis to force a Mustang three-and-out, but TCU couldn’t take advantage of a 54-yard Boykin to Doctson connection. The Frogs were stuffed on fourth down from the goal line after Trevorris Johnson’s sneak attempt was denied. A SMU holding penalty negated a showstopping catch by Sutton that would’ve moved the Mustangs into TCU territory, and the Mustangs were forced to punt again. A Boykin scramble that included a flip reminiscent of his touchdown run against Kansas State put the Frogs into scoring territory, and two plays later Doctson outran Mustang defenders on a go route down the right sideline for a TCU touchdown to make the score 21-10. The catch was the 17th TD reception of Doctson’s career, which moved him into a tie with Mike Renfro and Corey Rodgers for the second most career touchdown catches in TCU history, trailing only Josh Boyce. The Horned Frog defense stopped SMU again on the next drive, but Texada’s injury, which occurred while defending a deep pass play, cast a pall on the remainder of the half. After a Boykin fumble on an option keeper that he managed to recover, the Frogs were forced to punt. SMU found their way into TCU territory before failing to convert a fourth-and-5 situation from the TCU 41. Aaron Green ran the Frogs down to the 20-yard line before Boykin showed off his agility by avoiding a sack and scrambling for an electric touchdown run to put the Frogs up 28-10 with two minutes left in the half. SMU struck back with a 64-yard pass from Davis to Malone on the opening play of the drive that put the Mustangs inside the TCU red zone. SMU converted a fourth-and-1 to get to the TCU goal line with 20 seconds remaining in the half, and Davis found Sutton in the back of the end zone two plays later to bring the score to 28-17 at the half.  Baseball season recap: Rebuilding turns to reloading after surprise CWS trip TCU rowing program strengthens after facing COVID-19 setbacks Grant McGalliard Facebook Previous articleWomen’s organization is breaking stereotypes on campusNext articleTCU survives scare against SMU 56-37 Grant McGalliard RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHORlast_img read more

Fort Worth Zoo re-opens with new protocols

first_imgRELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR print ReddIt Tim Daly NewsCommunityICYMIThe 109Fort Worth Zoo re-opens with new protocolsBy Tim Daly – September 24, 2020 2486 Tim Daly The Fort Worth Zoo is welcoming guests again, though it has put in place new health and safety protocols.The zoo closed to visitors for a little more than two months.“Nobody really expected a complete shutdown,” said Avery Elander, the assistant director of public relations. “When the governor issued his order that things needed to be closed, we certainly closed; we closed our doors to visitors, but our staff had to come every single day to feed and care for the animals and maintain the park.”The shutdown allowed the staff do things with the animals they would not be able to do with guests in the park. For example, they took animals out of their exhibits and walked them around to see other animals they would never get to see.Fans of the zoo were able to follow along on some of these adventures through the zoo’s social media accounts. Now that visitors are allowed to enter, they have to follow new protocols, including mandatory face coverings, extra hand washing stations and online reservations.Despite all of the changes, some of the hands-on experiences the zoo offers are still able to be enjoyed.“You are able to do some of those interactive things like feed the giraffes, go touch and feed our stingrays; you can also go into the petting ranch area where you can interact with the goats and the sheep,” Elander said.For guests who still might not be comfortable entering the park, the zoo is offering a handful of new virtual programs.“Whether you have a school group or club that’s getting ready to meet, and you guys are still meeting virtually, we can drop in on your zoom call,” Elander said. “We can have a number of animals and a keeper that you can interact with one-on one with.”For more information visit the Fort Wort Zoo website.
