Tonight’s Broad City Episode Was Full Of Phish References

first_imgLyrics to “Run Like An Antelope,” “Cavern,” the album Rift, and more were featured throughout the program. Watch the “Antelope” clip below:Later in the episode, Abbi’s potential love interest quotes “Cavern”: The acclaimed Comedy Central series Broad City is back with their second episode of the season, and what an episode it was. If you’re reading this article and watched tonight’s episode, chances are you caught the many references to beloved jam band Phish. It turns out that one of the co-creators, Abbi Jacobson, has actually been a “phan” for quite some time, even referring to the group as “the boyz” in a tweet. In an interview with Relix she recalls, “I used to go to a lot of jam and Phish shows,” about growing up outside Philadelphia. “That’s what we did on the weekends— we’d see shows. It’s just such an amazing, rare thing to put yourself in that situation where you are improvising onstage.” Very happy to get to give “the boyz” (@phish ) a few shout outs on tonight’s ep.— Abbi Jacobson (@abbijacobson) February 25, 2016last_img read more

I’m receiving more offers now that 10 years ago — Ibrahimovic

first_imgRelatedPosts Live stream Premier League, La Liga, Serie A on Showmax Pro this weekend Juve’s Pirlo gamble makes new Serie A season the most open for years Pirlo bags UEFA coaching badge Zlatan Ibrahimovic says he is more in demand at the age of 38 than he was 10 years ago and is adapting his game as he gets older. The Swedish forward said this as he was officially presented by AC Milan on Friday. Ibrahimovic has rejoined the club he left seven years ago for a six-month stint, with an option to extend his stay. But there are questions over how much impact he can have on the fallen giants who are languishing in 11th in Serie A. In their last match, AC Milan produced a pitiful display as they were thumped 5-0 at Atalanta, their joint-heaviest Serie A defeat. Ibrahimovic helped AC Milan win their last major trophy, the Serie A title in 2010/2011. He left to join Paris St-Germain the following year in a move that he said on Friday was against his will. The Swede has been a free agent since leaving Los Angeles Galaxy in November. “At 38, I have received more offers than at 28,” he told reporters. “The last time I left AC Milan, it was without my approval. But the situation was what it was… The important thing is that I am here now”. Ibrahimovic said he still had passion for football but had learned to adapt with age. “Each year is different. Physically you change with every year that goes by,” he added. “But experience teaches you to do things differently. If you’re an intelligent player, you know what you can and cannot do… Instead of running, I can shoot from long distance”. The forward however promised he would not go easy on his younger team mates. “I’m meaner than before,” he said. “They know what I am like, how I train and play each match. “You have to work hard. You have to know how to suffer, otherwise you don’t reach your maximum potential. “Not everyone likes to suffer but I do… and I expect a lot from my team mates.” AC Milan’s next match is at home to Sampdoria in Serie A on Monday. There was however no mention of whether Ibrahimovic, who has not played since October, would make his debut that quickly.Tags: AC MilanSerie AZlatan Ibrahimoviclast_img read more

Acquisitions and media drive 2019 growth for Better Collective

first_img Better Collective cautious on quick recovery as COVID drags growth momentum August 25, 2020 Better Collective has revealed that an acceleration of its acquisition strategy and broadening of its media partnership portfolio has allowed the affiliate to land ‘well in line with financial targets’.Publishing its annual report, the industry affiliate marketing publisher revealed a 67% growth in revenues, up from €40,483 in 2018 to €67,449. Meanwhile, EBITDA also saw an increase from €16,241 in 2018 to €28,061.Better Collective Chairman Jens Bager commented: “Through acquisitions, we have invested significantly in growing our market share, our leading position, and the number of offices and employees.“Growing through acquisitions and adding new offices and employees at the pace that Better Collective has done in recent years requires a firm focus on integration and management development.“The board remains focused on governance structures, ensuring that business processes and risk management measures continue to match our growth ambitions and fast increasing business volume.“We have managed to share best practices across new entities as well as creating cross-regional teams, securing synergy effects and an inspirational environment for employees in the Better Collective group.“2020 may turn out to be a challenging year for the sports betting industry as COVID-19 is impacting societies, businesses and sports events. As we publish this report, our financial targets for 2020 remain intact. We have a strong balance sheet and financing position.“However, we will continue to monitor the situation closely and adjust our activities accordingly. I wish to thank all our shareholders for the continued support on our exciting journey, and founders, management and employees for their hard, dedicated, and highly appreciated work leading to a successful 2019.”Bager also emphasised that expansion into the US market has continued to be a key driver of growth for Better Collective, with the chairman predicting that ‘it is a market that may surpass Europe in five to ten years.’The report said: “In short to medium terms, Better Collective is focused on expanding to the US market, as 2018 saw the repeal of the PASPA Act. This expansion means that the legal status of online sports betting has become a matter of state legislation.“Furthermore, the majority of states are expected to open for betting in the coming years. Gaining a foothold in the US market by means of two significant acquisitions in 2019, we expect to find new business from the organic approach as the states regulate, while not ruling out additional collaborations and acquisitions.”During 2019, Better Collective reported that the number of new depositing customers (NDCs) was more than 431,000, with a growth of 66%. This has been attributed largely to a ‘significant increase in sports betting volume’.Depreciation and amortisation amounted to €6,244, up from €3,092, mainly attributable to the company’s acquisitions and media partnerships strategy.Commenting on the results, Better Collective CEO Jesper Søgaard added: “For the full year 2019, we landed well in line with our financial targets, with an annual growth of 67%, of which 26% organic, along with a record high New Depositing Customers (NDC) growth of 66%.“We even managed to absorb the newly acquired US businesses and still meet our earnings target of >40% EBITA-margin. All this combined makes me very satisfied with this year’s performance.“In 2019, we continued our focus on developing and maturing our branded products with high-quality content and user experience. We want to bring value to our users and enhance the entertainment of betting, which is the driving factor for our product development and our strategy in general.“We signed new media partnerships, hosted our first bookmaker award show and expanded our business in the newly opened US market. Through these initiatives, Better Collective has in 2019 moved towards becoming a more broad-based sports media group working on a variety of platforms.” Bettingexpert crowns TheTrollmanSha World Tipster Champion  July 2, 2020 Submit Share Better Collective Spotlight: How is driving engagement through YouTube July 30, 2020 Related Articles Share StumbleUponlast_img read more
