This Year’s NFL Season Could Be One For the Ages

San Jose, Costa Rica, 2020-Sep-09 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Although questions about how COVID-19 will affect the NFL remain, most football fans, analysts, players and coaches have turned their attention to the start of the 2020 season. The defending Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs host the Houston Texans in the first official game on Thursday, September 10. From September 10 to January 3, the National Football League hopes to play seventeen weeks of uninterrupted football before turning their attention to the playoffs and the Super Bowl.

The new season means more to pay per head bookies than it may to anyone else other than NFL players. Even during years when the NCAA has a Men’s College Basketball Tournament, betting handle drops off 20% to 30% after football season.

Now that the NFL is back, bookies, especially, are excited about the upcoming season and Payperhead.com is seeing an increase in new agents. One experienced bookmaker said that 90% to 95% of his revenue comes from NFL betting. “I provide wagering services to fifteen people. They all bet on pro football. So, am I excited about the upcoming season? I’m enthralled!”

The coronavirus pandemic has already made the 2020 NFL Season unique. Many teams won’t play in front of fans. Teams that will allow fans, like the Atlanta Falcons, won’t play in front of full capacity stadiums. The lack of fans shouldn’t affect play on the field, as most people will be at home this winter watching the games across the country.

What could happen on the field is why so many are thrilled about this upcoming NFL season. It’s difficult to remember a time when an impact player like Tom Brady left his current team. Brady decided to leave the New England Patriots, a squad he won six Super Bowls with, to play for Bruce Arians and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Not only did Brady leave the Patriots but he ended up in the same division, the AFC South, as Drew Brees. The New Orleans Saints quarterback holds five NFL records. Brees and Brady face-off in Week 1 on Sunday, September 13.

Another quarterback battle has developed in the AFC. Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes won the 2018 NFL MVP. The Baltimore Ravens’ Lamar Jackson won the 2019 award. Mahomes and Jackson are the favorites to win the 2020 Most Valuable Player Award. Also, their respective teams are the two favorites to win this year’s Super Bowl.

Tampa Bay and New Orleans in the NFC, along with the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys, should spend all season jockeying for playoff positioning. In the AFC, the New England Patriots, who signed 2015 MVP Cam Newton to replace Brady, and Baltimore’s chief rival, the Pittsburgh Steelers, also figure to challenge for the conference championship.

As NFL Season Draws Closer, Bookies Switch to New Software Providers

San Jose, Costa Rica, 2020-Aug-20 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Although the coronavirus pandemic represented a bump in the road, the Global Sports Betting Market is on track to reach $155.4 billion by 2024. The trajectory, which represents a compound growth rate (CAGR) of 8.8%, can mostly be attributed to a couple of sports. By far, international sports bettors wager on soccer. In the U.S., football is the players’ betting sport of choice.

As the online sports betting continues to grow more bookies are looking for more established software companies like Payperhead.com to grow their businesses. Pay per head agents, those who use bookie software to run their sportsbooks, can expect the NFL to generate 2020 revenue in line with what they saw in 2019. In some cases, this NFL Season may generate more since players remain hesitant about visiting brick and mortar betting establishments.

Every year, the National Football League’s annual Super Bowl attracts the most wagering dollars of any single event. In 2018, the Super Bowl generated $158 million in handle. Some sports bettors wager exclusively on NFL football games. Their biggest bet of the year is on the Super Bowl.

Although the Big Ten and Pac 12 won’t have football this fall, the SEC, ACC, and Big 12 will. Also, the NFL is on track to start their season on time in September. The lack of Big Ten and Pac 12 games should have a negligible effect on football betting numbers. Most sports handicappers will turn their attention to SEC, ACC, and Big 12 college games.

Some pph sportsbook agents have already started the push for football wagering dollars. One agent who wished to remain anonymous said that he sent out the NFL’s opt-out list to his players a day after the league released it to the public.

The National Football League told players that they had until August 6 to opt-out of playing in the upcoming season. Players were compensated either $150,000 or $350,000 depending on their opt-out reason. On August 7, a per head agent copied the list and emailed it to his players. “I wanted to give my players information that can help them plan for the season.”

Customer care isn’t the only thing the agent did. He recently switched pay per head software providers, moving to a shop that offered credit card transactions. “Some of my players didn’t want to meet in person. Now, all they must do is use the system to pay me via credit card. I can also make payouts directly to their cards, which makes them happy.”

Although credit card transactions were the most important aspect that led to the switch, the bookmaking agent said that wasn’t the lone reason. “My players don’t wager much on NBA and MLB. So, I didn’t see much of a change in revenue. But losing the NCAA Basketball Tournament was huge. That’s my second best profit generator.”

“I had to find a pay per head shop that made it easy for me to import my players and offered more than my current provider did,” the agent said.

The agent added, “I don’t mind paying a higher per head fee because I can’t take the chance. I’ve got to try and make up the lost college basketball tournament profit with football betting.”

Code A Wish Corp Hosts “AI 101” Summer Virtual Series for Teens amid Pandemic

Rockville, MD, 2020-Jul-30 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — “Code A Wish Corp” is a Maryland 501(c)3 non-profit that is run by teens and for teens. The club was started by six high schoolers that come from Montgomery, Howard, and Fairfax County in the Greater Washington DC area in the summer of 2019. They shared the same vision that public schools nationwide have an educational gap on teaching the latest technology such as AI, especially to those that are under privileged. The founder of the non-profit Faith Cheung, a senior from Richard Montgomery High School first started a school chapter of “Girls who Code” and realized the need for technology education is unmet by the public school curriculum. After teaching coding at local libraries and even foster homes in Taiwan, she founded the non-profit at the end of the summer of 2019. A team of six like-minded high school students swiftly was formed and the idea of running a tech conference called “the Future Summit” began. With months of extensive planning and coordination, the tech conference went live on November 16th, 2019 at the Hilton in Gaithersburg, MD. The “Future Summit” proved to be a huge success. More than 200 teens from the East Coast were in attendance to hear prominent entrepreneurs and computer scientists give cutting edge speeches on machine learning, voice technology AI and the fourth industrial revolution.

To continue the outreach to even more teens amid the pandemic in 2020, the group has kicked off a new virtual summer series called “AI 101”. The learning gap in the tech field is evident when we asked such basic questions regarding AI in our AI Virtual interactive webinars. Unfortunately, not many could actually answer. The organization aims to fill a huge gap to the school system in hope to provide much needed education to teens so that they can be better equipped with foundational knowledge in AI and other emerging technology.

On July 3rd, 2020, “Code A Wish” hosted their first summer 2020 AI 101 webinar where over a hundred students enthusiastically participated. The first webinar was also published on youtube for those that could not join the live session: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jcLELI2aroo&t=1s

Since then, a weekly live session has been running and hundreds of students have signed up to join the interactive webinars. Topics so far generated interest from nearly 300 elementary and middle schoolers. The topics have also been carefully chosen to reflect the latest affairs. For example, the second episode was dedicated to the use of AI in Covid-19 research. The team is striving for reaching even more students this summer and providing an easy to follow virtual platform to engage teens. The next virtual webinar will be hosted on Friday July 31st, 2020 at 5 pm Eastern Standard Time. To register, please use the following link: cutt.ly/AI101

Absolutely “POSI+IVE”: Two-Spirit pop artist Tony Enos releases career defining album as a person openly living with HIV

Philadelphia, PA, USA, 2020-Jul-1 — /EPR Network/ — “I know faith can move mountains, and yes I’m absolutely positive.” That line alone from the title song of out pop icon Tony Enos’ 4th studio album encapsulates the past 14 years of his living with HIV.

Enos’ new album is called “POSI+IVE,” and it chronicles the Two-Spirit singer/songwriter/producer’s journey of thriving as a person living with HIV (PLWH) since his diagnosis in July of 2006. But the inspiration for the album didn’t come until Enos opened the United States Conference on AIDS on August 5th, 2019 in Washington, DC.

“Here I was in this amazing affirming space for PLWH, and I’m hiding this huge secret about myself from everyone,” admits Enos.

“Secrets keep you sick, and I’m tired of carrying it. It’s not doing anyone else any good by my hiding it. Least of all me.”

“POSI+TIVE” doesn’t hide anything. While the the record is positive and uplifting, and maintains a pop music genre labeling, “POSI+IVE” boasts an eclectic offering of acoustic love ballads, EDM, R&B, and New Country. Enos has masterfully penned songs about finding and losing love, navigating toxic relationships as a PLWH, self-worth, socio-political themes and issues, and of course thriving with HIV.

Writing and producing the entire album himself along with his assistant vocal producer and sister Vienna Enos, he is no slouch in the production area, and his impeccable vocal performance on this album is his finest yet.

While ballads like “Losing Season,” and “He Was So Beautiful,” show off a more vulnerable Enos, EDM tracks like “Based On A True Story,” and the timely acoustic-anchored “This Close To Freedom,” gives T-Bones the essentials they’re looking for.

At the heart of the album, it is driven by activism, empathy, pain and redemption, compassion, love, and – as the album’s closing track “Based On A True Story” states – “wind and fire, guts and glory.”

“From the moment I received my HIV diagnosis, I was living to die,” says Enos.

“It was years before I gave myself permission to live again.”

Scheduled to perform at the International Conference on AIDS, “AIDS 2020” this July, Enos said in interview footage for the performance, “If I can make the experience even a hairline easier for someone living with HIV, then it’s all worth it.”

“POSI+IVE,” is now available on iTunes and all your favorite digital music platforms!

PayPerHead® Steps Up To Help Small Business Owners

SAN JOSE, Costa Rica, 2020-Apr-15 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — In response to the coronavirus pandemic, organizations around the world are exploring relief efforts to assist freelancers, entrepreneurs and small business owners that are being financially hit by the COVID-19 crisis. PayPerHead® is one such organization.

While businesses outside of the healthcare sector are producing hand sanitizer, masks and other supplies to help stop the spread of the virus, many software and tech companies are doing what they can to help keep the economy afloat by putting into place deep price cuts and educational content. As a result, they are helping mass numbers of the newly unemployed build home businesses and work online.

PayPerHead®, a sportsbook software company based out of San Jose, Costa Rica, is a Software as a Service (SaaS) organization that is making big strides in helping people start a new business that can weather this storm or stay alive in an industry they are already part of.

While major sporting events have been cancelled across the board due to social distancing protocols, sportsbooks are finding ways to keep players in action. With wagering available on eSports, one-on-one competitions such as boxing or tennis, horse racing, casino gaming, and even election results, people are still betting as a form of entertainment.

Slashing rates to zero, PayPerHead® recently announced that all of their services, except those that entail outside software costs, will be offered to bookie agents free of charge until the first major sporting event begins again, or by September 1, 2020, whichever comes first.

Market research has positioned the pay per head sportsbook and casino industry to eclipse $155 billion by 2024. “If ever there was a good time to seek out an industry that can survive an economic downturn, now is it.” said Nate Johnson, Product Manager at PayPerHead®. “We know that times are tough, but we’ve been down this road before. When businesses were going bankrupt during the housing crisis of 2008, we stayed in the game. We’ll do it again and we’ll help others to do it too.”

KZ TANDINGAN SUPREME WORLD TOUR SHOW AT CULLEN PERFORMANCE HALL, HOUSTON 9/28/2019 CANCELLED

HOUSTON, Texas, 2019-Sep-28 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Cornerstone Entertainment, Inc. released an “Official Statement” informing the public that “it will no longer push through with KZ Tandingan’s U.S. shows” including the show in Houston, Texas on September 28, 2019 “due to promoter’s (JRC) – failure to comply with its obligations, protocol and show requirements.” This public statement was the first notice of any kind Happy Owl Productions, who was producing and organizing the Houston show, received related to any potential cancellation or issues regarding obligations or show requirements. Happy Owl Productions was looking forward to the show and had fulfilled all obligations related to the venue and hosting of the event. Unfortunately, a number of failures by tour promoter, Jimmy Reyes Cruz (aka “Jemalicious”) or (“JRC”) based on statements provided by Cornerstone Entertainment Inc. (“Cornerstone”) forced the show’s cancellation. Apparently, as occurred with prior dates on the tour, JRC failed to cover certain expenses it was obligated to cover, including travel, and also failed to secure proper visas for entry into the United States. Happy Owl Productions paid additional amounts in a last-minute attempt to make sure the Houston show would happen, but circumstances outside its control forced cancellation and it has been left with substantial expenses for a show that will no longer occur. As other event producers have announced (including Edren Entertainment, who was producing the cancelled San Jose and Stockton shows) Happy Owl Productions will be pursuing all available legal remedies as to Jimmy Reyes Cruz / JRC and other responsible parties. Happy Owl Productions apologizes to fans who were looking forward to the Houston KZ show and is working to ensure full refunds will be provided to ticket purchasers.

Houston, Texas U.S.A., 2019-Mar-02 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Dousic Media Group (DMG), a Houston based Company with affiliated offices in Punjab and soon to be registered in Singapore, is set to launch its new Dousic Social Platform at the South by Southwest (SXSW) Music Festival in Austin, Texas between March 10th thru 13th, 2019, located at Booth No. 1239, Halls 2-5 in the Austin Convention, where the newly upgraded Dousic website and App will be unveiled.

Dousic is an interactive social media platform that engages users with a diverse discovery experience. In the Dousic community the public can personalize their content and creators can monetize their products.

“With Dousic we wanted to create a social media platform for people like photographers, models, authors and musicians, so that they have total control of their destiny by owning their brands and products via the website and the App. In addition, Dousic is a fully functioning social media platform giving users a wide variety of connectivity such as chat, audio or video calls, all in one convenient location”, said Michael Ferguson, DMG Executive Vice President/Founder.

DMG Founder and CEO, Brian Moore, emphasized that “the Indie Music Industry has been trying to find its footing for some time and from where I sit there is still a clear lack of understanding of how to ensure that Indie Creators get an even playing field and are being properly compensated. Accordingly, we have designed Dousic to give them back brand control and content ownership.”

Following on from SXSW, our future website and App enhancements will ensure Dousic is a place where Creators maintain full ownership and control, giving them stronger leverage when in negotiations with Record Labels.

Dousic’s Mission is to provide a global hub for an interactive and personalized entertainment experience. We are committed to helping Indie Creators reach their full potential.

Phonexa Exhibiting at Affiliate Summit East 2018

Glendale, CA, 2018-Jul-09 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Affiliate Summit, which hosts two events in the United States, in Las Vegas and New York, will be held at the New York Marriott Marquis from July 29-31. The two-decade-old global conference and tradeshow expects to host thousands of digital marketers from over 70 countries.

Key attendees typically include C-suite executives and top decision-makers from a variety of different industries all within the lead generation space. The individuals, agencies and service providers amass at Affiliate Summit to grow their network and learn from other industry experts.

Phonexa announced earlier this year that they are taking the lead in eliminating integration fees in order to create a more client-friendly business practice. The accumulated cost of API integrations is often a serious roadblock for companies who need to upgrade their existing systems. With the costs of integrations out of the picture, businesses can allocate more of their budget and effort towards creating better products and marketing campaigns. Phonexa’s client-focused business practice should be well-received at the 2018 Affiliate Summit East, as thousands of brand representatives and industry leaders collectively hunt for value-driven solutions.

The packed agenda at Affiliate Summit East provides each different attendee with relevant workshops, networking opportunities and valuable takeaways; equipping affiliates, networks, technology providers and digital agencies with the appropriate strategies and industry knowledge they came to acquire.

Russian mobile operator MTS successfully used iBwave Design to plan, design, deploy and manage modern high density and high capacity wireless networks for the WorldCup in Russia

MONTREAL, Canada, 06-Jul-2018 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — iBwave, the global standard for designing multi-technology in-building networks announced today that MTS, the leading telecommunications group in Russia, has successfully used iBwave Design to plan, design, deploy and manage modern high density and high capacity wireless networks for the 2018 Soccer tournament.

One of the main challenges during a major event like this is to be ready for the massive data demands put forward by excited fans using multiple devices in a stadium’s complex environment. To enable a fast, reliable fan experience during the 2018 Soccer, MTS Russia leveraged iBwave Design’s planning, propagation and capacity modelling features to quickly deliver one the largest deployments of Massive MIMO in Europe to date. iBwave Design was used to successfully plan and deploy high capacity networks for the following stadiums and surrounding areas: Luzhniki Stadium, Moscow (capacity: 80,000), Spartak Stadium, Moscow (capacity 45000), Rostov Arena Rostov-on-Don (capacity 45000) and Kazan Arena, Kazan (capacity 45000).

Through iBwave’s ability to design mobile networks in large complex venues such as stadiums, operators like MTS can create the ultimate wireless experiences by meeting the demands of a large number of people at a specific time without compromising on speed and quality. There is no margin for error in such an environment when the service is needed then and there without any disruption. Many players are needed to create this experience and iBwave’s design capability ties this all together. With iBwave on its team, MTS was able to deliver a great end user experience by leveraging design features such as signal and capacity modeling right down to inclined surfaces, complex architecture and body-loss calculations when the stadium is filled to capacity.

“It is always difficult to predict mobile consumer needs in high density, high capacity environments- particularly for a world class sporting event such this, where thousands of sports fans are simultaneously using multiple devices across multiple technologies,” says Seth Roy, Vice President Product Line Management at iBwave. “Based on our experience of connecting major sporting events such as past World Cups and the Olympics, our tools are the ideal choice to prepare for the huge amounts of data requirements during the 2018 World Cup. We are proud to support MTS in this project and extremely excited to be part of the design and deployment of Europe’s largest Massive MIMO experiences”, he added.

More than 3 million spectators are estimated to watch the games live during this month-long event, which is underway until July 15th.
