Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event Cancelled for 2021

first_imgThe Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event presented by MARS Equestrian™ (LRK3DE) will not hold its famed Five Star three-day event this year, previously scheduled for April 22-25. The Kentucky CSI3* Invitational Grand Prix presented by Hagyard Equine Medical Institute and other events are being explored to be held over that weekend but without spectators.“We have been working with US Equestrian, the Kentucky Horse Park, and state and local government on several different scenarios for April,” said Mike Cooper, president of Equestrian Events, Inc. (EEI) which produces the world-class event. “With so many uncertainties still remaining regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, it is premature for US Equestrian to remove its restrictions on spectators. Given the importance of the health and well-being of our spectators and competitors, we feel the only option at this time is to cancel the Five Star Event and hopefully proceed with other events that our fans can enjoy via livestream and other outlets.”Among the other competitions being considered is a new CCI-4*-S which will likely feature many of the same horses and riders that would have been competing in the Five Star, plus the Kentucky CSI3* Invitational Grand Prix which normally takes place on Saturday afternoon.“While disappointing that all our fans can’t join us again this April,” added Lee Carter, EEI executive director, “we are excited that some of those same fans can now compete in new levels we will be offering during the ‘Best Weekend All Year!’ April 21-25 … Save the Date! Plans are being developed and will be communicated as approved.”Spectators, patrons, vendors and sponsors who paid for the 2020 event and chose to roll their money over for 2021 will have the option of full refunds or rolling their money over again for 2022. Ticket holders can expect an email regarding their options. Sponsors may choose to be part of whatever events are held in 2021 with new agreements that fit this year’s situation.“We want to thank everyone who has been so patient throughout this difficult process,” Carter added. “We remain committed to all our supporters across the country and around the world and we look forward to putting on a great event this spring and welcoming everyone back for our full-scale Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event Five Star, with the Kentucky CSI3* Invitational Grand Prix, in 2022!”Known as “The Best Weekend All Year,” LRK3DE is one of only seven annual Five Star three-day events in the world along with Badminton and Burghley in England; Luhmuhlen in Germany; Pau in France; Adelaide in Australia and the new Five Star event in Maryland. As the United States’ premier three-day event, LRK3DE serves as the Land Rover/USEF CCI-5*-L Eventing National Championship Presented by MARS Equestrian™ for U.S. athletes. The event was scheduled to return to the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, KY, April 22-25.

Some 50 world leaders call for post-pandemic cooperation

first_imgCanada and Jamaica organized the conference.Sustainable development goals for 2030 “are more crucial than ever,” said European Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen. “We have to work and fight together.”Several leaders, such as German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron, said the crisis could be an opportunity to grow a “more resilient” economy to aid the fight against global warming.Deploring a “deep questioning of multilateralism,” Macron stressed “cooperation is essential” as well as “support for the most fragile countries,” especially in Africa. World leaders on Thursday called for resilience and cooperation after the pandemic recedes, during a UN videoconference in which the United States, China and Russia did not participate.About 50 leaders took part in the event on development financing, with Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte saying in a recorded message that the goal must be to “leave no one behind.”South African President Cyril Ramaphosa said “we need to be innovative, think outside the box,” echoing Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Mauritania President Mohamed Ould Ghazouani called for the “systematic and immediate cancellation of debt.”UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres asked leaders to “go further” than they already have on debt relief for vulnerable countries, in a spirit of “needs-based solidarity and transparency.” Guterres applauded the meeting, playing down the absence of the three missing world powers. He told reporters that the United States, China and Russia would participate in six working groups created at Thursday’s session, for which meetings are scheduled for July, September and December. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he hoped the world would “build back better,” adding “we must work together across borders” to avoid a new pandemic and to help global recovery.Costa Rican President Carlos Alvarado Quesada said the world after COVID-19 should be dominated by “solidarity, not profit.”center_img Topics :last_img read more

On Being – Or Finding – a Great Startup Advisor: Video Interview with TechStars Mentor Jud Valeski

first_imgWith fifteen years of experience in Internet-based entrepreneurialism, Gnip CTO Jud Valeski is well qualified to offer expertise to startups, which he does through the Boulder, Colorado-based TechStars summer program.In this interview, we see him working hands-on with the young team developing EverLater, a site for social web-using travelers. He also talks with us about how startups can get a critical mass of feedback to make important business decisions and discusses what he sees as consistent issues and characteristics of new teams, both in terms of business acumen and general temperament.For inexperienced but passionate startup teams, finding guidance can be critical to their ultimate success. While technical expertise frequently abounds in such teams, there is often a crucial gap in knowledge about how to build a business, what amounts of funding to seek, and the next steps to take in building a company. Valeski addresses these concerns as well as the positive aspects he has perceived in the dozens of startup teams he’s worked with over the years. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… jolie odell Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostingcenter_img Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Related Posts Tags:#start#startups last_img read more

LawPivot: Crowdsourced, Confidential Legal Advice for Startups

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#start#tips Questions about the legal requirements surrounding the establishment, incorporation or funding of a startup may be among the most common and most challenging that entrepreneurs face. There’s the general distrust of lawyers, alongside the sense – true or not – that legal advice will be too costly.LawPivot tackles this problem by providing a place where companies, but especially startups, can ask legal questions and get crowdsourced answers from qualified lawyers. LawPivot aims to ease some of the obstacles – financial, but also logistical – that make finding a lawyer so difficult.The co-founders, Jay Mandal and Nitin Gupta, are both lawyers. Mandal was the lead of Apple’s mergers and acquisitions team, and Gupta was an IP attorney at a several national firms. They bring to the table, then, an understanding of the needs of entrepreneurs and lawyers, the latter of whom are finding their own profession changing and are needing new ways to develop their businesses.How It WorksUnlike other Q&A sites, the questions you pose to LawPivot are confidential. You tag your questions with relevant keywords, which helps the site’s recommendation engine identify the best lawyers for the job. It’s the addition of recommendations and algorithms to this sort of online inquiry that LawPivot’s Gupta describes as “the next direction of Q&A.”You can ask questions about a variety of legal topics that concern your startup: contracts, stock issues, employment, licensing, patents, trademarks, real estate, just to name a few. But when you tag your question and request a lawyer, you needn’t only do so based on subject matter expertise. You can indicate, for example, that you need someone who’s quick to respond.You can then choose to send your question to the lawyers you choose or the ones LawPivot recommends, and you’ll get an email when a lawyer responds to your question.Through the end of the month, LawPivot is free. And it’s restricted to questions that address California law (so, California companies and California lawyers.) The company, which just received a round of funding from Google Ventures, does plan to expand beyond California eventually (and if you’re a company outside of California who has a question about a California legal matter, you’re still welcome to sign up). Following its free trial period, LawPivot will charge companies on either a per question or per monthly basis. audrey watterscenter_img 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts last_img read more

The soft-spoken mentor will be bringing in an almost intact roster this coming year, with Michael Calisaan, Ryan Costelo, and RK Ilagan leading the fort.And Macaraya is optimistic that the bitter memories of the past will be enough to propel the Golden Stags back into the Final Four.“I guess with what we’re showing, everyone is stepping up to win games. If that happens, we’ll have a good season,” he said.But for San Sebastian to do just that, Macaraya feels that the effort should be consistent as they try to fan their title hopes this coming NCAA season.“I hope we sustain whatever good things we’re doing,” he said. “We promise that every game of ours will be exciting.
