Fans make brackets, choose how their favorite teams will fare, then cheer them on along the entire way.TCU intramurals has been taking part in this “madness” by holding a bracket challenge for students, faculty and staff.Assistant Director of Campus Recreation Sheldon Tate said there are a handful of things people get excited about, and March Madness brackets are one of them.“We try to make sure what we are offering is reflective of what students are passionate about,” Tate said.He said with this bracket challenge, they are able to reach students, faculty and staff, who enjoy playing basketball, but also those want to participate by only submitting a bracket.When the bracket challenge started, there were only around 70 brackets, said Stephanie Milligan, intramural supervisor. This year, Milligan said there were more than 205 submissions.Tate said this the bracket competition is a great way for people to get involved.“The program has grown exponentially every year,” Tate said. “We hope it continues.”The majority of participants are students, but Tate said the staff and faculty get involved in their “little pods.”“All they have to do is fill it [the bracket] out,” Tate said.Intramurals keeps track with the brackets and percentages on ESPN’s March Madness website. Milligan said they have closed bracket groups and individuals can submit up to two brackets. Once they submit their brackets, they are free just to let them “run their course.”She said the popularity of the brackets deepens people’s desire to compete. Participants might not be great athletes, but thinking through a bracket or having fun choosing teams keeps the competition alive, Milligan said.She said by implementing a two-bracket system, people make a more serious one and a “what if” one.The NCAA March Madness Tournament concludes with the championship game on April 4. The TCU bracket challenge winner gets a t-shirt, Milligan said. + posts Kacey Bowenhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/kacey-bowen/ Kacey Bowenhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/kacey-bowen/ Facebooklast_img read more

IRFU say snack advertising is in bad taste

first_imgEmail Blatant attempt by food distributors to capitalise on popularity of rugby The Irish Rugby Football Union has made contact, through its solicitors, with Largo Foods, the distributors of Hunky Dorys, and requested that they immediately withdraw the current advertising campaign, the strap line for which claims Hunky Dorys to be ‘Proud Sponsors of Irish Rugby’. Padraig Power, Commercial and Marketing Director, IRFU, stated: “This advertising campaign is in very bad taste and one which the IRFU would not want to be associated with in any way”.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “Firstly, its blatant exploitation of women is tasteless and base, and quite simply unacceptable. Irish Rugby has a strong family focus and would not tolerate any connection with such an approach”. The campaign imagery launched by Hunk Dory’s urges “fans to get behind their team”, to “join in and get dirty” and uses phrases such as “Scrum – ptious” and “get to know the girls” in the locker room.  Mr Power added; “Secondly, the claim that the product is a ‘Proud Sponsor of Irish Rugby’ implies that the company is a significant sponsor of the game in this country, though the IRFU. This is absolutely untrue and a cynical ploy in an attempt to capitalise on the games popularity. By doing so it has the potential to undermine the legitimate claims of the many genuine sponsors and supporters of Irish Rugby whose investment has been a key element in the success of rugby at grass roots level throughout the country, and of our Provincial and National Teams”.“In addition to pursuing the immediate withdrawal of the campaign through legal means we are also writing to the Advertising Standards Authority of Ireland bringing to their attention the misleading claims”.“We would hope that the management of Largo Foods would withdraw the campaign immediately”.

Low interest rates endangering German companies – survey

first_imgAt the present time, these rates are higher than the one applied under IAS19.But German analysts expect the HGB to drop considerably as low interest rates factor more heavily into the HGB’s calculation over time.According to the DVFA’s survey, more than one-third of investment professionals (36.6%) fear that most German companies are failing to adjust to the new interest rate environment or increases in life expectancy.Many in the industry are hoping proposed amendments to accounting standards will help companies cope.Earlier this spring, the German pension fund association (aba) submitted a position paper to the government on this very issue. The aba calls for increasing the calculation period for the discount rate from seven years to 12 years or more. The government has approved the proposal, which could be included in the reform package linked with the implementation of the Portability Directive.These amendments are expected to be presented to Parliament in November and could come into effect before the end of this year.For more on the effects of accounting standards on Germany’s Direktzusage, see the guest viewpoint of former DVFA managing director Peter König in the November issue of IPE German companies are finding the prolonged low-interest-rate environment, combined with an increase in life expectancy, “problematic” or “very problematic”, according to a survey by the DVFA.The DVFA – an industry group for investment professionals – said nearly 90% of respondents to its survey were highly concerned that German companies were failing to adjust. Currently, companies using German accounting standard HGB are able to apply a discount rate to their on-book pension obligations, or Direktzusage, of 3.73% or 4.12%.The Bundesbank sets these rates using the seven-year average of a zero-coupon euro swap with a remaining maturity of 10 years or 15 years, respectively.last_img read more

first_imgNew Delhi : Live Streaming Cricket, Australia vs Sri Lanka at Hotstar and Star Sports: Sri Lanka has chosen to bowl against Australia at the Kennington Oval in London.

Aaron Finch blasted his 24th fifty but David Warner fell for 26 as Dhananjaya de Silva broke the 82-run stand for the opening wicket. Finch continued on his merry ways and shared a brilliant partnership with Steve Smith. The Australian skipper converted his fifty into a big one as he blasted his 14th century and first in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 to boost the five-time champions against the 1996 champions. Australia are currently third in the points table while Sri Lanka are fifth. Australia has lost only once against Sri Lanka and that was in the final of the 1996 World Cup. The 20th match of the ICC World Cup 2019 will feature Australia vs Sri Lanka locking horns with each other at The Oval in London on Saturday.
