Ashes 2017: We’ll be throwing everything we have in Melbourne and Sydney’, says Craig Overton

first_imgThey may have lost the urn after a humiliating defeat at Perth but the English players are not ready to throw in the towel yet.Australia defeated England by an innings and 41 runs in the third Test on Monday to take an unbeatable 3-0 lead in the five-match series and regain the prestigious Ashes urn at the WACA in Perth.All-rounder Craig Overton admitted that England have not been good enough in the Ashes series till now but said that they will be throwing everything they have in the remaining two Tests at Melbourne and Sydney.”We have not been good enough for long enough in this series and have let chances slip, and because of that we have lost the Ashes before Christmas,” he said in The Times on Tuesday.All England have left to play for is pride in Melbourne and Sydney, but Overton says the series is not over as they try to halt an eight-match losing sequence in tests in Australia.”We are gutted but don’t for a second think that there will be divisions in the camp or that we see the series as over.”We will be throwing everything we have at the Melbourne and Sydney Tests — we are desperate to make a mark on the series, even if it’s too late to win.”We will fight until the very last to do so.”Whether or not Overton will be fit to play a part is another matter entirely after he suffered a hairline fracture of a rib while diving in the field at Perth.advertisement”I am nursing a hairline fracture to my rib but the doctor warned me it could become much worse if I landed the wrong way — a proper fracture, or even a punctured lung. No one needs that,” Overton said. “I’ve been brought up to fight through the pain, and I’m not the sort to leave the field for nothing.”Somerset seamer Overton enjoyed a dream start to his test career when he picked up the wicket of Australian captain Steve Smith in the second test in Adelaide.With six wickets to his name in his two tests and an impressive 41 not out with the bat in Adelaide, Overton was one of the few England players to emerge with much credit.He said he is desperate to play in the Melbourne test which begins on Dec. 26.”I won’t rule myself out of Melbourne. I accept it’s unlikely, but I’m so desperate to play that I won’t accept I’m not going to until the doctors tell me absolutely otherwise.”I’ll be weaning myself off the strong painkillers, just a few paracetamol to help me sleep.”And no golf! It’ll be beach time for me.”last_img read more

10 months agoMan Utd legend Neville: Pogba danced on Mourinho’s grave

first_imgAbout the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Man Utd legend Neville: Pogba danced on Mourinho’s graveby Freddie Taylor10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United legend Gary Neville says Paul Pogba was “dancing on the grave” of Jose Mourinho yesterday.Pogba posted to his social media channels a photo of himself smirking shortly after the announcement of Mourinho’s departure from Old Trafford.Adidas claimed the promotional post was booked in advance, but Neville isn’t buying their excuse.”Manchester United are a better team with Paul Pogba in it,” Neville told Sky Sports.”That’s the first thing to say – he has huge talent, I actually have belief in him as a player. I actually liked him when he was at the club as a player as a kid, it’s not a personal thing.”Paul Pogba, there is no doubt, has fallen out with the manager. He doesn’t believe in him, he doesn’t like him, he doesn’t think he’s a good coach probably, and vice-versa.”Jose Mourinho doesn’t think Paul Pogba is as good a player as he thinks he is. There’s been a complete breakdown in the last six months between the pair of them, probably [over the last] year.”I do believe that dancing on the grave of the manager who has just been sacked is out of order.”Jose Mourinho lost his job and Paul Pogba and his people put that Instagram post out – don’t fall for this coincidence scheduled tweet nonsense, it’s garbage, absolute garbage.” last_img read more

Creditors to End Hanjin Shipping’s Financial Support

first_imgzoom The ailing South Korean container carrier Hanjin Shipping has taken a step toward bankruptcy as its creditors said they would not provide additional financial support to the company.The creditors, led by state-run Korea Development Bank (KDB), said they would halt financial support for the company as of September 4, Reuters cited KDB.Namely, Hanjin Shipping’s self-rescue plan fell short of the creditor’s demands as the company earlier said that it aims to collect KRW 400 billion through the sale of its assets, while the creditors urged the carrier to increase this number to around KRW 700 billion.The company has been under a creditor-led restructuring scheme since May 2016 after it collected some USD 4.39 billion in debt.The restructuring was expected to facilitate Hanjin’s push for normalization of operations along with discussions on charter rate reduction and alliance reorganization.World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more

Exercise to Practice Processes that Make Nova Scotians Safer

first_img BROADCAST: Federal, provincial, and municipal partners will take part in an exercise to practice the coordination and procedures needed to keep Nova Scotians safe in emergency situations. Health and Wellness Minister Maureen MacDonald says exercises like Scotian Pearl help partners prepare for emergencies and practice working together. People are advised that emergency vehicles and participants in make up taking part in the exercise will be in and around Shannon Park Friday (May 13th) morning. -30- Federal, provincial, and municipal partners will take part in an exercise to practice co-ordination and procedures to keep Nova Scotians safe in emergency situations. Exercise Scotian Pearl, which focuses on chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear emergencies, will be held on the morning of Friday, May 13, at Canadian Forces property Shannon Park in Dartmouth. “We are committed to working with our partners to ensure we are prepared to respond to emergencies,” said Health and Wellness Minister Maureen MacDonald. “Through exercises such as this, we will be better able to protect Nova Scotians in emergencies.” The scenario for the exercise involves a group of musicians, dancers and singers on a bus trip. The bus is involved in an accident with a five-ton truck carrying chemicals. A suspicious package will also be found on the truck. “Exercises like this provide all of us with an opportunity to sharpen our skills and improve co-ordination so we can respond rapidly to emergencies,” said Ross Landry, Minister of Justice. The exercise will start with a welcome ceremony at 9 a.m. at the rink at Shannon Park. The simulated exercise will run from 10 a.m. to noon. “The partners in public safety in our community have historically collaborated very well in crises,” said Chief Frank Beazley of Halifax Regional Police. “Mock situations like Exercise Scotian Pearl allow us to exercise our response together to enhance our collaboration and ensure all of us are prepared to efficiently and effectively respond to emergencies.” David Meldrum, divisional chief of safety, Halifax Regional Fire and Emergency, said Scotian Pearl is a “valuable opportunity to practice skills and work with partners.” Mr. Meldrum said exercises help first responders “prepare for the diverse nature of emergencies which are possible today.” People are advised that emergency vehicles and participants who appear to be injured will be in and around Shannon Park as part of the exercise. “The RCMP is pleased to join with our partners from federal, provincial and municipal agencies to strengthen our planning and co-ordination efforts,” said Nova Scotia RCMP Commanding Officer Alphonse MacNeil. “The committee has invested tremendous effort in the planning of this exercise and should be applauded for their efforts in bringing together Nova Scotia’s public safety partners.” Health and Wellness, Emergency Management Office, Labour and Advanced Education, Environment and Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal are participating on behalf of the province. Other participants include Health Canada, the Public Health Agency of Canada, Public Safety Canada, Canadian Forces, RCMP, Halifax Regional Police, Halifax Fire, Capital District Health Authority, Emergency Health Services and the Medical Examiner’s Office.last_img read more

UNbacked partnership says new vaccine could end meningitis misery in Africa

8 June 2007A new meningitis vaccine has proven effective in West African children, trumping any other vaccine currently on the market in the region and providing hope that the epidemic will eventually be eliminated, a United Nations-backed partnership announced today. The preliminary results of the successful trial of the vaccine – expected initially to sell for 40 cents a dose – were released by the Meningitis Vaccine Project (MVP), a UN World Health Organization (WHO) and United States-based nonprofit PATH partnership. The 21 affected sub-Saharan African countries, collectively known as the ‘meningitis belt,’ could witness the slashing of the epidemic’s incidence due to the vaccine, according to the results. Last year over 41,500 cases were reported, while between 1 January and 6 May of this year, an additional almost 48,000 cases have been reported, raising concerns of a new epidemic wave in the region. “This important study brings real hope that the lives of thousands of children, teenagers, and young adults will be saved by immunization and that widespread suffering, sickness and socioeconomic disruption can be avoided,” said Dr. Margaret Chan, WHO Director-General. Meningitis – one of the most dreaded infectious diseases worldwide – occurs when the thin lining that surrounds the brain and spinal cord becomes infected. Even with antibiotic treatment, at least 10 per cent of patients die and up to 20 per cent are left with permanent problems including mental retardation, deafness, epilepsy and necrosis which could lead to limb amputation. The partnership’s data shows how the vaccine could block serogroup A meningococcus, which could lead to the entire population, including those who are not vaccinated, to be protected as well in a phenomenon known as ‘herd immunity.’ “When it becomes part of the public health arsenal, this vaccine will make a real difference in Africa,” said F. Marc LaForce, MVP director. “The vaccine will allow elimination of the meningococcal epidemics that have afflicted the continent for more than 100 years.” The trial was conducted in 12 to 23-month-olds in Malia and Gambia, and results showed that the vaccine is safe and produces antibody levels nearly 20 times higher than those obtained with the polysaccharide vaccine which is being sold on the market, which means the protection the new vaccine provides can last for several years. The next phase of trials will take place in Mali, Gambia and at least one other country in the region, and the vaccine will be tested in 2 to 29-year-olds, which is the population that will be mostly targeted by mass vaccination campaigns. read more

Report from UN Special Envoy Clinton says tsunamihit countries make good progress

The most challenging days lie ahead, however, as the magnitude of the reconstruction requirements severely test the capacities of many local governments, which lost many of their skilled personnel among the 220,000 people who died, the UN Deputy Special Envoy for Tsunami Recovery, Eric Schwartz, told a news conference at UN Headquarters.He was launching a UN report on the status of the recovery effort by former United States President Bill Clinton, who is Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s Special Envoy for the Tsunami Recovery.To cover priorities for next year, Mr. Clinton will press donors to remain committed even after much of the world’s attention has shifted to other crises. Given the large number of international organizations involved in the recovery, Mr. Clinton will also continue to promote more effective coordination and he will encourage governments to move forward vigorously to implement such disaster reduction policies as community education and early warning systems, Mr. Schwartz said. He said the Special Envoy will encourage governments to involve their own civil societies in key recovery areas and press for coordinated approaches to generating incomes in such areas as agriculture and fishing. Mr. Clinton will also continue to work aggressively to improve temporary living conditions for the tens of thousands of internally displaced people (IDPs), especially in Aceh, Indonesia, as he presses governments to step up the pace of replacing permanent housing, Mr. Schwartz said.Of the $10.5 billion pledged to assist India, Indonesia, Maldives and Sri Lanka, $7.75 billion has been secured so far, he said.In answer to a question about the increasing global risk of natural disasters, he said the warming of the seas may be playing some role in the growing severity of typhoons, but the best evidence indicates that the increased destruction has resulted from such factors as environmental degradation, increased population pressures, greater poverty and a higher rate of migration to coastal areas. Mr. Schwartz was accompanied by UN Assistant Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs Margareta Wahlstrom, World Bank economist Deepak Bhattasali, and executives from two non-governmental organizations (NGOs) — Johan Schaar, Special Representative for Tsunami Operations for the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (ICRC); and Gillian Dunn, Director of the International Rescue Committee’s Emergency Preparedness and Response Unit.In separate releases, the UN Development Programme (UNDP) said an analysis of 800 focus group discussions in1,100 villages showed that among Sri Lankan tsunami survivors there was a rise in social stigma, depression among widowers and teenage alcohol use.On a brighter note, construction spending has made a giant leap in Aceh and Nias in Indonesia from a normal annual total of $50 million to $2 billion, while the UN Population Fund has been helping to restore reproductive health services in tsunami-affected communities in Indonesia, Maldives, Sri Lanka and Thailand. read more

Green lobby ignores bigger picture on CO2 emissions

Friends of the Earth, and fellow lobbyists Greenpeace, have made their anti-nuclear position clear before a full and informed debate on the nuclear option. Yet a statement released by Friends of the Earth has urged Chancellor Gordon Brown to take more action to reduce the threat of climate change. Yet, once again, protestors are ignoring the facts. As well as average CO2 reductions of around 15 per cent in six years, a modern 4×4 diesel emits just seven per cent of the particulate emissions of a 15 year old saloon. Similarly on air quality NOx emissions, standards for the latest Euro 4 petrol 4x4s are six times as tight as those for a Euro 2 saloon, some of which are as little as five years old. SMMT chief executive Christopher Macgowan commented, ‘Nuclear power may or may not be the way forward in terms of energy policy. However, to adopt a “no thanks” policy with its echoes from the cold war era, while berating drivers of 4×4 and SUV vehicles, is quite wrong. A full and informed debate on all efforts to cut CO2 across all industries would best serve the environment in the medium and long term.’ SMMT has reacted with concern over a Friends of the Earth statement, calling for massive increases in tax on 4×4 vehicles, while seemingly refusing to participate in the nuclear debate. According to the BBC, Friends of the Earth and Green Party members are today targeting 4×4 drivers in Norwich, handing out ‘parking tickets’ in a protest over air quality. Nuclear power has the potential to reduce CO2 emissions significantly from the largest source of man-made carbon dioxide – the energy industries. At the moment, this accounts for around 38 per cent of total output, compared to 22 per cent for road transport. Will Friends of the Earth and Green Party members be ticketing drivers of older, more polluting saloons, estates and small cars?Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) read more

Football Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins makes case for playing time

Ohio State redshirt freshman quarterback Dwayne Haskins (7) waits for a snap in the fourth quarter of the 2017 OSU- Army game on Sep. 16. OSU won 38-7. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorThough he remains unlikely to unseat J.T. Barrett as Ohio State’s starting quarterback, Dwayne Haskins took the first snaps of his career Saturday on the Buckeyes’ final drive of their 38-7 win against Army.The redshirt freshman did not disappoint. Haskins completed all four of his passes for 46 yards, zipping the ball to four separate receivers on each throw and driving the Buckeyes to Army’s 10-yard line. “I thought he performed well when he was in there,” coach Urban Meyer said after the game. “He was 4-for-4. I wanted to throw him more, but you just didn’t want to do something silly.”His big-armed, pocket passing style starkly contrasted with Barrett’s dual-threat approach. In Haskins’ only drive, he completed passes of 14 and 15 yards. In the rest of the game, Barrett completed six passes for at least 14 yards.Meyer praised Haskins’ quick release after the game and said Haskins might have had a chance to score on his only drive, but did not want to score another touchdown and run the score up.After Ohio State’s first loss of the season, a decisive 31-16 defeat to Oklahoma, Meyer said he hoped to find Haskins some reps in regular-season games with the goal being to prepare the quarterback to be “game-ready.” Meyer did not believe Haskins earned that designation last week and believes he still has to work to earn the tag.Redshirt freshman quarterback Dwayne Haskins Jr. (7) warms up prior to the season opener against Indiana. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorIn Meyer’s mind, a large experience gap exists between practice reps and game reps, and another lies in whether the game reps occur under pressure. At the end of the game against Army, Haskins did not have much to lose.“I’ve done that before where you put a guy in in the second quarter of a game,” Meyer said. “We’re not at that point yet. But you’d like to do that.”Whether Haskins earns earlier playing time to test his readiness or not, he is likely to remain backup quarterback. Instead of a battle to become the starter, he might re-enter a competition with redshirt sophomore Joe Burrow, who is about ready to return to action.Burrow broke a bone in his throwing hand near the end of fall camp. Before the past two games, he threw passes in pregame warmups, but he has yet to be listed on a depth chart due to the injury.“We’ve got to make some decisions who is the first one in there,” Meyer said. “Last year was very important to get Joe in the game and he did pretty well when he was in there as well. So, that is so important for backup quarterback spot.”In the spring and fall, Burrow and Haskins entrenched themselves in a battle to back up Barrett. In the spring game, Burrow went 14-for-22 for 262 yards with three touchdowns, while Haskins completed 26-of-37 passes and added three touchdowns.The primary backup last season, Burrow played in five games and completed 22-of-28 passes for 226 yards and threw two touchdown passes. A dual threat, similar to Barrett, Burrow rushed 12 times for 58 yards and a touchdown. read more

Source: Byran Keane/INPHOAfter Leinster had lost the ball in their attempt to keep it tight around the fringes, Fardy then charged down Evans’ clearance kick and showed athleticism and strength to collect the loose ball and drive towards the whitewash. He was stopped short, but McGrath recycled and looked towards the blindside for Lowe to do the rest.It was roles reversed 30 seconds into the second half. Jordan Larmour’s electric feet created the yard of space for Lowe to burst through the first tackle and offload inside for the supporting McGrath, who raced clear to dive over. Frawley took over the kicking duties from Byrne and nailed the touchline conversion.That was to be McGrath’s last notable involvement, as he too hobbled off with an ankle problem, before Byrne’s high tackle allowedJones bring Scarlets back to within seven points with a penalty between the posts.With their noses in front, Leinster looked to apply the squeeze in the final quarter and played the territory game effectively with McCarthy kicking smartly and the inexperienced backline defying their years to manage the game.Larmour, fresh off his Ireland debut and the star attraction, didn’t get enough ball to take advantage of a tiring, and stretched, Scarlets defence but a clever kick and chase, and strong work from Frawley, helped Leinster maintain the pressure.The hosts felt aggrieved when the TMO ruled Fardy had infringed at the breakdown but the second row, clearly enraged by the decision, produced a match-clinching steal at the lineout before Byrne looked cross-field for his namesake to bundle Corey Baldwin into touch. Dan Jones kicked a late penalty. Source: Byran Keane/INPHOFrom there, Leinster moved it in field, showing patience and precision to work it through the phases, and Scarlets eventually conceded the penalty to allow Frawley stretch the lead to 10 points with as many minutes remaining.But Scarlets showed the resilience and spirit of champions to finish strongly and after Jones had missed one opportunity from the tee to secure a losing bonus-point, the pack turned the screw to win another penalty when the clock had hit 80.Jones wasn’t going to make any mistake this time, and that outcome for the Scarlets was all the more pleasing after they had gone down to 14 men for the remaining minutes when Tom Prydie had been forced off injured. As Pivac said afterwards, that point could prove to be pretty important in the race for the playoffs.But Leinster are back to winning ways, and that’ll do nicely.

Adam Byrne is tackled by James Davies. Source: Byran Keane/INPHOThe visitors started brightly, and it took Tadhg Beirne just four minutes to wreak havoc. Max Deegan walked straight into it, the Leinster number eight utterly powerless to prevent the Scarlets blindside getting over the ball to win the turnover penalty. He was only getting started and was supreme all afternoon.Scarlets lost their way in Treviso last week but were back at the scene of their most acclaimed heist. They had nothing to fear, and showed their intent from early on. Aggressive, direct and a handful in both attack and defence, the visitors hit the front through Johnny Mcnicholl.Although stripped to the bare bones due, in part, to their own success, Scarlets have maintained a lethal attacking edge in the backline and when they moved the ball down the short side through Steff Hughes and quick hands from Mcnicholl, Beirne provided the front foot ball down the left.With Jonathan Evans pulling the strings, and dummy runners making it almost impossible for Leinster to nullify the threat, the red shirts pummelled away before exposing holes out wide — Adam Byrne was caught in no-man’s land — and James Davies set Mcnicholl away for the line, although the fullback injured his shoulder in the act of finishing in the corner.Leinster were forced into an early change of their own when O’Loughlin was knocked backwards by Hughes after Ross Byrne’s hospital pass in midfield, further stretching the province’s centre resources. Not to worry, Frawley is the next cab off the rank.The multi-talented UCD back provided the link in midfield for Leinster’s passage back into the game. The strength of the pack was evident in making hard yards down the far side, before Leinster changed the point of attack and Scarlets were caught far too narrow, allowing Byrne to loop it wide for Lowe to hold off the covering tackle in the corner.If Leinster’s first try was soft from a Scarlets perspective, the second was completely avoidable. Lowe was at the heart of it again, as he pinged a low grubber kick deep into opposition territory and although the Kiwi eventually finished it off, it was all about Fardy.

The Unlikely Marriage and Sudden Divorce of Frank Sinatra and Mia Farrow

first_imgMia Farrow was a 99-pound former Catholic schoolgirl-turned groovy flower child, from a respected show business family. Her father was writer-director John Farrow; her mother, actress Maureen O’Sullivan (best known as “Jane” in the Tarzan movies of the 30s and 40s). Frank Sinatra was, well, the Chairman of the Board. For a few years, in the mid-60s, the two became one of the most unlikely hook-ups in Hollywood history. How exactly did it all go down?Mia Farrow photographed in 1965He started calling her “Angel Face.” Her pet names for him: “Frankie” and “Charlie Brown.” Sinatra flew Farrow to Palm Springs for the weekends on his private plane and showered her with expensive gifts. Farrow, who was younger than Sinatra’s oldest daughter Nancy, claimed that she had lost her virginity to him.The couple soon became the butt of jokes. “I always knew Frank would end up in bed with a boy,” cracked Sinatra’s ex-wife Ava Gardner. (By this time, Farrow had traded her long strands for an ultra-short pixie.).Sinatra in 1955Comedian Jackie Mason incorporated the twosome into his Vegas act, but cut the quips after bullets were fired through his hotel room door. Mia’s mother, Maureen O’Sullivan, reportedly remarked, “If he marries anyone, it should be me.”Backlash be damned, the pair got hitched in a small private ceremony in Las Vegas, on July 19, 1966. The union, however, was rocky right from the start. Sinatra would soon discover that he had met his match. Beneath her fragile appearance, Farrow was complicated, moody, and not at all intimidated by the singing legend.Mia Farrow and Frank Sinatra. Photo by Getty ImagesShe quickly became bored with Sinatra and his crowd, whose idea of a good time was knocking back martinis and hitting the casino craps tables in Vegas or watching old movies at Sinatra’s place in Palm Springs.According to one story, when Sinatra suggested that they screen one of his movies during a weekend in the desert, Farrow rolled her eyes and groaned, “Oh, no. We’ve all seen it at least five times.”She also made the mistake of dancing with Robert Kennedy at a party. Sinatra, who despised the former Attorney General, blaming him for his banishment from the White House — after the singer had worked hard to get his brother, President John Kennedy, elected — was furious.Frank Sinatra as Tony RomeBut the biggest source of contention between the two was Farrow’s refusal to abandon her film career. Sinatra had broken off his engagement to actress Juliet Prowse, two years before he met Farrow, because she refused to become a full-time wife. And now this. Eventually the couple compromised, agreeing that Farrow would make one film a year.Then, in 1968, came Farrow’s big break: the lead role in Paramount’s much-anticipated film, Rosemary’s Baby. Sinatra wasn’t thrilled but he waited for his wife to finish the project, which was filming on location in New York City, so she could join him in The Detective. Playing a small role as his mistress.Related Video: 60s And 70s Celebs Vintage TV CommercialsWhen Rosemary’s Baby fell four weeks behind schedule — not all that surprising, since director Roman Polanski was a renowned perfectionist — an impatient Sinatra began badgering his wife, ordering her to “ankle the film” (slang for “ditch the project”).Roman Polanski in Paris at the lunch of the César awards nominees. Photo by Georges Biard CC BY-SA 3.0Farrow was constantly on edge, crying on the set and dropping a disturbing amount of weight, making her tiny frame look sickly — ironically perfect for her role as a young wife who gives birth to the Antichrist. She begged Polanski to work faster, but refused to bail on the film. Sinatra, not used to people standing up to him, had had enough. A stunned Farrow was served with divorce papers on the set.Mia Farrow at the 2012 Time 100 gala. Photo by David Shankbone CC BY 3.0The couple divorced in Mexico in August of 1968.

Upon the singer’s death in 1998, Farrow proclaimed Sinatra the love of her life, saying she “loved him ’til the day he died and beyond.”last_img read more

Whos going to Vegas New stats show millennials and first timers are

first_img LAS VEGAS — The U.S. gambling mecca’s efforts to draw millennials and new visitors are paying off.A third of Las Vegas tourists last year were millennials – those between 18 to 35 – up from less than a quarter in 2015, according to a report commissioned by the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority and released Wednesday.The increase in younger visitors is undoubtedly good news to the destination that has been adding attractions to remain relevant to a generation not as fond of gambling as their elders.The data also showed that 27% of the city’s 42.9 million visitors in 2016 were first-timers.So, who came to Sin City and what did they do? Here’s a profile of average visitors:HOW OLD ARE YOU?The city set a record for visitation in 2016, though the number of baby boomers dropped to 28% from 35% in 2015. Generation X visitors made up 35% of tourists, down 1%, while millennial travellers increased to 34% from 24% a year earlier.“The product that we have now really appeals to millennials,” said Bo Bernhard, director of the International Gaming Institute at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and a noted scholar on gambling and hospitality in Las Vegas. “Nightclubs are like theatre to millennials. They are experiencing a very different Las Vegas than their grandparents.”More news:  Rome enforces ban on sitting on Spanish StepsTake MGM Resorts International, which several years ago created a committee dedicated to reimagining the gaming experience with the millennial demographic in mind.The company recently opened an interactive and skill-based gaming social venue at the MGM Grand that is essentially a hybrid bar, arcade and gambling lounge. The company has hosted e-sports tournaments and even released a set of emojis in December.“We’ve created dining destinations that are social and engaging and created food and beverage experiences ideal for sharing socially,” said Jenn Michaels, MGM’s senior vice-president of public relations. “And, of course, we are looking at our gaming floors and identifying how those can evolve to appeal to today’s traveller.”NEW TOURISTSThe increase of first-time visitors is comparable to the level Las Vegas experienced in the mid-1990s, the report said. It attributed the renewed interest to the recovery of the national economy, an increase in millennials who discovered the city and the reinvestment by hotels and others on new experiences and activities.“Indeed, it is quite possible that the varied and targeted entertainment options and related venues currently in Las Vegas have served to attract new visitors to the destination much the same as the ‘new’ megaresorts did in the 1990s,” according to the report by GLS Research, a San Francisco-based public opinion and market research firm.More news:  GLP Worldwide introduces first-ever Wellness programsIts data is based on information volunteered by 3,600 random tourists polled during 2016. 91% of visitors said they would recommend Las Vegas to others.HITTING THE CASINO FLOORThe number of visitors who gambled during their trip has remained at about 7 in 10 over the past five years, the data show. But gamblers are spending a lot less time on the casino floor.Last year, visitors spent an average of 1.9 hours gambling, that’s an hour less than in 2015 and more than 2 hours less than two decades ago.“They are spending more time enjoying the non-gaming amenities,” said Kevin Bagger, executive director of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority’s research centre.Those other activities include day club-nightclubs, concerts, shows and sports events.WHERE ARE YOU FROM?The report says 81% of visitors came from within the U.S., down 3% from 2015. Meanwhile, the number of foreign visitors rose 3% from 2015, returning to the 19% seen in 2014.About half of U.S. tourists were from Western states, with the majority coming from California.
