Non-MLB Baseball (including Minor League Baseball) - No listed pitchers and all bets are action regardless of who pitches for each team.
It is the client's responsibility to ensure they are aware of any relevant pitcher changes. Each team's starting pitcher is defined for wagering purposes as the pitcher that throws the initial pitch. Pitchers can be specified when placing wagers. For any suspended MLB playoff game that resumes within 72 hours of the suspension, all bets will stand and be settled after the completion of the game. If the game is not completed within 72 hours following the time of suspension, then all bets will be void unless settlement of bets is already determined.
If the game is called, or suspended, after this point of the game is reached, then the winner is determined by the score after the last full inning (unless the team batting second scores to tie, or takes the lead in the bottom half of the inning, in which case the winner is determined by the score at the time the game is called).

Please note that suspended games do not carry over.We tacked on a few days at the end in Reykjavik, and had the chance to soak in the Blue Lagoon for a day, as well as see "How To Become Icelandic In 60 Minutes" at The HARPA (gorgeous national performing space on the harbor in Reykjavik). All in all, a marvelous 12 days. Thanks, Nordic Visitor, and Alexandra. Norway Grand Tour was excellent.
The hotels booked were wonderful and the service was great. The whole experience with Nordic exceeded expectations. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Nordic visitor made everything stress-free. It was great to be able to pick up our rental car and check into accommodations, simply by handing them our reservation paper.
All accommodations were very clean, comfortable, great breakfasts and most had a beautiful Norway view. My friend and I just finished the Ring Road bus tour and were completely delighted with all aspects of the trip. We loved Iceland and feel like Nordic Visitor showed us the very best of the country in a way that maximized relaxation and minimized stress. I definitely would choose this company for my next Scandinavian adventure.
My husband and I thought the tour and the service provided by Nordic Visitor to be excellent. It was very convenient to book our trip with you as we didn't have to worry about coordinating all the accommodations, car rentals, shuttles, and tours on our own.
Additionally, everyone from Nordic Visitor who helped us were so friendly, professional, and helpful. We will definitely look to using your services again for our future Nordic vacations. I saved myself days and days of research by letting Gudrun take care of everything. Using Nordic Visitor allowed me direct access to a local agent (Gudrun) who knows how to put my trip together.
We were delighted to be able to meet Alexandra, our Consultant, at the end of our trip. Despite some challenges provided by the weather we thoroughly enjoyed our circle drive through the extraordinary landscape and geo thermal environment.
We have great admiration for the resilience of the people who live and work in the small, remote farming and fishing villages around the country. We have no hesitation in recommending your company to our friends and others who were interested in our travels. Thankyou for ensuring our visit was safe and well organised. This was a special holiday we had been planning for over a year to celebrate our Golden Wedding Anniversary and thanks to your careful planning for us it was a holiday that we will treasure for the rest of our lives.
I booked the 'Exotic Hideaways' package last winter for my wife and I for our honeymoon in May. We have both always wanted to visit Iceland and having just returned from our trip, I can say unequivocally it was everything we were expecting and more. From our driver who picked us up at the airport and went out of his way to make us feel welcome, to our 'at your own pace' itinerary and all the accommodations arranged for us along the way (which were virtually flawless.
Perhaps it was because we arrived technically in the tail end of the off-season, but at times it felt like we had the entire country to ourselves.Many had anticipated that Apple would upgrade the iPhone SE model to the iPhone SE2 or SEs in March 2017, replacing the existing (and rather popular) SE that was introduced in March 2016.
However the iPhone SE was only treated to a bump in storage to 32- and 128GB on 21 March. We do still expect a new iPhone SE model at some point in the future. When the new model launches it is likely to keep the existing, classic design, but feature upgraded internals such as the A10 chip found in the iPhone 7 and a more powerful camera. To be honest we've got no idea what the follow up to the iPhone X is going to be called, but this guess is as good as any.
We're not convinced this would be wise (the X already has the biggest screen Apple has ever put on a phone), but the market usually gets what the market wants. We'd also love it if Touch ID could make a comeback in addition to Face ID. This would be possible if Apple can incorporate a fingerprint scanner under the glass, something which was too technologically challenging in 2017 but may be feasible now.
After the tremors of 2017, however, Apple may well consolidate in 2018, offering incremental upgrades and perhaps spreading existing features to more models - giving the 4. However, this was not the iPad mini 5 anticipated, and given that the iPad mini 4 was last updated in September 2015, it's clear that Apple isn't too focused on its smaller tablets and Apple does state that the most popular tablet size is 9. Perhaps spring 2018 will see the introduction of an iPad Mini Pro with upgraded components, a new thinner, tougher aluminium chassis, and the inclusion of a Smart Connector to match that of the other iPad Pro devices.
Read more: iPad mini 5 new feature rumours iOS 11 was released to the public on 19 September 2017. Like iOS 12 - and Apple's other major OS updates - watchOS 5 will first be unveiled in the summer of 2018, before a public launch in autumn. Unlike the others, however, watchOS 5 probably won't be made available in the form of a public beta.
We suspect that this may be the first watchOS update that won't be able to run on every Apple Watch model, after seeing our first-gen Apple Watch struggle with the watchOS 4 update in 2017. Following its usual pattern, Apple will reveal and demo macOS 10. The last and least heralded of Apple's OSes, tvOS is nevertheless a Pretty Big Deal for everyone with a fourth-gen or 4K Apple TV. But we've since been informed that it won't make its debut until 2018.
Designed in response to the likes of Google Home and Amazon Echo, HomePod is a smart speaker that also sounds brilliant. Apple focused more on sound quality than its smart features in the unveiling of the HomePod, which is an interesting take on things but perhaps we'll discover more about Siri's role in the new device as we approach its release date. Discover more about the HomePod here.
Brand new to the Mac line-up is the iMac Pro, which Apple unveiled at WWDC 2017. It isn't out yet, but Apple still maintains that it will be launched before the end of 2017.
The stunning new device is the most powerful Mac ever made, and it's still a sleek all-in-one like the iMacs we know. This time, though, Apple has opted for the Space Grey colouring, complete with a new Space Grey keyboard, mouse and trackpad.
The specs on the iMac Pro are incredible, particularly if you opt for a built-to-order model. Those working with 3D and VR, for example. But more than that, this iMac offers a machine that is going to be powerful enough for whatever is next. You can find out more about what to expect from the iMac Pro here. The Mac Pro is long overdue a refresh, as it hasn't been updated since the launch of the 'trashcan' Pro model in 2013.Tier VIII is pretty much straight up the 'sweet spot' in this game, premiums at this tier make by far the most money, the experiance gain is nothing short of superb, and of course, since Tier VIII is generally the highest tier you'll get Premiums at, these ships become amazing Captain trainers.
Not just that, Tier VIII just in general excels at ranked. WG obviously knows about the Tier VIII hotspot, because they keep releasing Premium ships at this tier. What I don't understand is why it's taking so long for the US Navy, a faction that has been in the game since day one, to get its first Tier VIII Premium. Yukikaze is a possible Tier 8 now that Kagero is downtiered. BBs: With the Russian BB line coming (.
But then, we thought that about Warspite. Also will be hilariously trollish if Novorossiysk is sold as a Russian premium before an Italian premium happens. Probably another 30 Russian ships total next year. Russian carrier line and second Russian cruiser line. As well as some 1980s designed Russian tier 6 premium cruiser. Also, several sub-branches for "what if" scenarios for other ships, like "what if they decided to replace the triple turrets of the Imperator Nikolai I for single turrets with freakishly big guns.
Hood will probably be in the game when the RN BB line get in. Given how confused that battle was, it's possible that Yudachi could've done less than she's traditionally credited with or considerably more (as in, the torpedo kills attributed to other DDs might actually have been Yudachi). She really didn't do much aside from not get sunk for a while. I don't really think she's premium ship material. All 4 were hit by the torpedoes, but the one that hit Shigure as dud and she managed to escape unharmed.
And in the Battle of Surigao Strait she was the sole survivor of Admiral Nishimura's Southern Force despite taking severe damage. Given the heavy losses the IJN had taken by this point in the war and Shigure having come though 10 different battles (including most of Japan's worst defeats at sea), the sailors started to believe she was under some sort of divine protection. And even when finally sunk by a submarine while escorting a convoy in 1945, Shigure still had some luck left because she sank so slowly that the vast majority of the crew were able to survive.
Or at least more pre-dreadnoughts. I'd love the SMS Schleswig-Holstein and the austrian SMS Radetzky. So therefore, I'd predict that either HMS Hood or HMS Prince of Wales will show up alongside the RN battleships.
Secondly, I'd say that an Italian premium is probably headed our way too. Either Roma or Giulio Cesare, but I don't know many Italian ships, so idk. Why dont we get some lines out for the major superpowers at the time before we expand some to have multiple lines. France and Italy had some interesting ships. They could sell these in German and British packs and would probably be fairly cheap considering most would be lower tiers.
Or how about this lone oddity ship the Finnish "Vainamonien" coastal defense ship. I always thought this ship was so cool looking. Roma would be cool. I've never seen the Vainamonien before. I can see tier 5 or 6. Almost everything else viable mass produced destroyers from Britain or France about the same tier. Her reason for being noteworthy is she was first ship sunk in WWII, Germans bombed her on September 1, 1939 as part of the opening attack.
Just most of Poland's line up is stuff the Brit's lent Poland followed by stuff the Russian's sold to Poland. Also what makes Blys differ is its guns aren't British they're Swiss Bofors 120mm.Notice the first words in this reply. Thanking your customers will make them feel good. Ultimately, it establishes a more personal connection between you and the customer.
The manager went as far as saying that he commended the waitress for a job well done. Your staff should know how to do the things we outlined earlier. Ask for reviews Say thank you Remind customers of the different review platforms This also holds your employees more accountable for their actions.
What do these numbers tell you. Your employees need to understand this. These reviews are just as important to your staff as they are to you. If negative reviews hurt your business, it could put your employees out of a job.
Engaged employees work harder. You can display these results on your website or social media platforms as well. How can you do this. The example above even tells the customer how long it will take them to complete the review.
You can design surveys that are shorter as well. I like them because they are simple to use. Surveys are a great way to get customer feedback in general. Using surveys to generate social proof is an added bonus. Yelp allows customers to include their name and a photograph for their profile. The reviewer, Chelsea, has a photo to validate who she is. Her picture even shows her eating food at a restaurant. Images like this resonate more with consumers. They can also see that Chelsea has made over 300 reviews on Yelp.
People are using their full names and profile pictures to back up their statements. Images like that will have a negative effect on their credibility.
Reviews that tell a story can have the same impact. So, how do you get customers to tell a story. Bonnie reviewed a local pizzeria in Seattle. It was a personal story about her specific experience. Why was she there. What type of music was playing. Lots of Bob Marley. When did she visit. How was the service. All of these points are highlighted in the review. Stories create a connection and generate social proof. You can also use: Experts Crowds Celebrities See if you can find an expert in your industry to validate your products.
Use crowds to generate social proof as well. Consumers follow the crowd.Everything is probably pretty dark, which is ok. Now, switch to your shutter speed and rotate the dial to make it bright enough that the image is properly exposed. Your shutter number should be going down. These are fractions of a second that your shutter will be open for and as the number lowers it will let more light in.
Adjust this number until the preview of the image is correct. This should automatically adjust the shutter to be what the camera thinks it should be. This may be wrong and you may need to use the exposure compensation dial to add light.
If all you have is the running man images to choose from, try picking something like sunset. With the iPhone, just tap the area you want exposed properly. Use the Histogram on the back of the camera. The far right hand side is white, and left is black. In the example image there is a little gap on the right hand side which means that there is no pure white.
Adjust the exposure till the part of the curve representing the white background is touching the right edge without going over.
Zoom InCameras typically have an optical zoom and a digital zoom. If you have an optical zoom, try zooming in as far as you can without going digital zoom.
A longer zoom will remove distortion caused by a wide angle lens. Setting up your product is one of those things that seems simple, but can take time to position correctly. Many times there are lots of tiny movements needed to get everything lining up perfectly. This simple white card is the single most important light modifier we have in our studio and we use it with everything.
The light will bounce off the card and fill in all the shadows. How you position this card is matter of taste, so try it at different angles to the product.
Experiment with different ways of making your image better and over time your skills will naturally improve. Upload your images onto your computer to get a better idea of how they look. The back of your camera is never very accurate. I suggest using Adobe Lightroom to organize all your images, and it can be used to do almost all of your editing except very advanced processes. If you photographed your product correctly, the product should be exposed properly and your background a light grey.
It should look something like the un-retouched image above, and comparing it to retouched version shows you how important this step of the process actually is. The retouching tasks associated with on-white photography, for someone without a lot of training, can be tricky, and tend to be the weak link for most people trying to photograph products themselves. Their amazing software allows you to upload and manage your retouching from start to finish.Needless to say, I am slightly biased when it comes to reviewing this book.
I typically take something from all books, but this book obviously delivered more than I expected (A JOB. Here is my best objective summary of the book. The greatest strength of this book is the development of the many characters in the book. I say the word "character" because these are definitly not your average Joe. My personal favorite is Alan Boston.
Alan is a lovable curmudgeon that means well, but often shoots himself in the foot. I pleasantly laughed out loud at some of the remarks he made while watching games (primarily because I have made the same comments myself). If I would change the book in any way, I would strike the section on legislation and legalization of sports wagering.
Although it is relevant to the story, I felt like it dragged on at times, and took away from the excitement of the "action. The writing is strong, and not without moments of "tongue-in-cheek" humor.
Chad is an interesting guy himself, who I have corresponding with since reading the book. He is a very friendly person who cares deeply about his audience. Buy this book, and if you dont enjoy it, find a degenerate gambler to give it to. He or she will be sure to find a special place in their heart for it. It takes the reader on the roller coaster ride of betting on college basketball in Las Vegas.
Although there were far too many typographical and grammatical problems, the story is engaging. If you ever wondered how the sports books set the lines or what the lifestyle of the full-time "professional" sports bettor is, this book is illuminating. Interestingly, Millman predicts the imminent demise of the Vegas sports book 14 years ago, but today the business seems to be as strong as ever.
As a fan of Chad Millman's podcast, I enjoyed reading the book that had such a significant impact on his future. Also, this introduced me to some of his guests on the podcast and provided background information on them.
It also provides some interesting tales of the transition of sports betting from its early days to the more corporate set up today and discusses the impact of the internet on sports betting.
