Philadelphia, Pennsylvania – Caesars Entertainment just announced a new partnership with MLB Chicago White Sox. The gaming giant is set to become the sports team’s official sports betting and casino partner under the deal. This announcement comes after Caesars released its first quarter 2022 financial results. One of the notable aspects is the reported revenue growth for the specified period.


Caesars and White Sox team up

Being one of the leading iGaming brands in the United States, Caesars holds a significant market share in the country. Their customer loyalty is rewarded with a wide range of bonuses and prizes. There is a promotion part going on which all new sports betting players who register on the platform can take advantage of by entering a Caesars Sports Betting Promo Code.

The latest partnership is another stepping stone in the history of Caesars in Illinois and northwest Indiana. This is where their patrons can immerse themselves in high-class betting and casino entertainment, including Harrah’s Metropolis, Grand Victoria Casino Elgin, Horseshoe Hammond and Harrah’s Joliet.

Among the benefits of the partnership, Caesars Entertainment can now officially display Chicago White Sox trademarks and logos, LED signage and other digital and social media assets. An example would be their terrain and video card. However, financial details of the deal have yet to be disclosed.








Effective immediately, the Caesars Entertainment and Caesars Sportsbook brands will appear in White Sox marketing campaigns. This includes their team merchandise. On top of that, fans will have access to special offers and promotions directly through the Caesars Sportsbook app.







Tom Reeg, CEO of Caesars Entertainment, shared his thoughts on the new partnership in an official press release. He believes that the two entities could not have chosen a better time to join forces. At the same time, he noted how Illinois is synonymous with the most passionate sports fandom, which is the perfect opportunity to introduce world-class betting. entertainment via the recently relaunched Caesars Sportsbook app.

Brooks Boyer, Chief Revenue and Marketing Officer for White Sox, is excited to deliver an extraordinary sports and entertainment experience to their engaged fans, which has been made possible through a partnership with Caesars, a global entertainment leader. Thanks to the newly formed partnership, their fans have many new programs and experiences to look forward to.







At the time of writing, Caesars has a presence in 23 states and jurisdictions across the United States, where the gaming giant operates the largest retail sportsbook chain. In Illinois, Caesars has been running an online sportsbook since September 2020. It was formerly a platform owned by William Hill, which was later rebranded as Caesars Sportsbook.

Since Illinois is widely recognized as one of the most profitable gaming markets in the United States, Caesars made a smart geographic decision to focus its recent development efforts on the region. The region’s monthly turnover produces some of the most respectable numbers in the industry. At the same time, unfortunately, the same cannot be said for Chicago, where quite a long time can pass before a casino opens its doors to gambling enthusiasts.

Caesars also has one of the most famous loyalty programs in the country. Sports bettors place their bets and earn loyalty points (called Rewards Credits) credited to their account. Once they’ve accumulated enough, they can choose from Caesars Rewards, including exclusive invite-only events with the White socks, member-only rates at Caesar destinations and other great benefits. After all, the 65 million members who enjoy program benefits can hardly be wrong.

The American faithful are bracing — some with cautious joy and others with impending dread — for the Supreme Court to potentially overturn the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision and end the nation’s right to legal abortion.

An overturning of the 49-year-old’s decision has never seemed more possible since a draft notice suggesting the judges could do so was leaked this week.

While religious believers at the heart of the decades-old fight against abortion are shocked by the breach of High Court protocol, they are still deeply divided and their beliefs on the contentious issue are more entrenched than ever.

National polls show that most Americans support access to abortion. A Public Religion Research Institute survey from March found that a majority of religious groups think it should be legal in most cases – except for white evangelical Protestants, 69% of whom said the procedure should be banned in most or all cases.

In conservative Christian corners, the draft notice has raised hopes. Religious groups that have historically taken a strong anti-abortion stance, including the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, have urged worshipers to pray for Roe’s overthrow.

The Reverend Manuel Rodriguez, pastor of the 17,000-person Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic Church in New York’s Queens borough, said his mostly Latino congregation is encouraged by the prospect of Roe’s disappearance at a time when the courts in some Latin American countries such as Colombia and Argentina have decided to legalize abortion.

“You don’t fix a crime by committing another crime,” Rodriguez said.

Bishop Garland R. Hunt Sr., senior pastor of The Father’s House, a predominantly African-American nondenominational church in Peachtree Corners, Georgia, agreed.

“It is the result of continued and necessary prayer since 1973,” Hunt said. “As a Christian, I believe that God is the giver of life – not politicians or judges. I definitely want to see more babies protected in the womb. No faith is monolithic on the issue of abortion Yet many followers of religions that do not ban abortion are appalled that a view held by a minority of Americans could override their individual rights and religious beliefs.

In Judaism, for example, many authorities say that abortion is permitted or even required in cases where the woman’s life is in danger.

“This decision would prohibit abortion where our religion allows us to do so,” said Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg, Scholar-in-Residence at the National Council of Jewish Women, “and it bases its concepts on the beginning of life on the philosophy or someone else’s philosophy. theology”.

In Islam, similarly, there is room for “all aspects of reproductive choice, from family planning to abortion,” said Nadiah Mohajir, co-founder of Heart Women and Girls, a Chicago nonprofit that works with Muslim communities on reproductive rights and other gender issues. .

“A particular political program infringes on my religious and personal right and freedom,” she said.

According to new data released Wednesday by the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding, 56% of American Muslims say abortion should be legal in most or all cases, a figure that roughly matches the beliefs of American Catholics. .

Donna Nicolino, a student at Fire Lotus Temple, a Zen Buddhist center in Brooklyn, said her faith calls followers to be compassionate toward others.

Restricting or banning abortion ignores the reasons women have abortions and would hurt the poor and marginalized the most, she said.

“If we really value life as a culture,” Nicolino said, “we would take things like ensuring maternal health care, health care for children, decent housing for pregnant women.”

Sikhism prohibits sex-selective killings — female infanticide — but is more nuanced when it comes to abortion and promotes compassion and personal choice, said Harinder Singh, senior research and policy fellow at Sikhri, a New Jersey-based nonprofit that creates faith-based educational resources.

A 2019 survey he co-led with research associate Jasleen Kaur found that 65% of Sikhs said abortion should be the responsibility of the woman rather than the government or religious leaders, while 77 % said Sikh institutions should support those considering abortion.

“The Sikh community surveyed is very clear that no religious or political authority should decide this issue,” Singh said.

Compassion is a virtue also emphasized by some Christian leaders who are calling on their staunchly anti-abortion colleagues to turn down the heat as they speak out on the issue.

Caitlyn Stenerson, Evangelical Alliance Church pastor and campus minister in Minnesota’s Twin Cities area, called on church leaders to “be careful,” keeping in mind that women on their pews may have had abortions for various reasons and may be grieving and struggling. with trauma.

“As a pastor, my job is not to heap more shame on people but to bring them to Jesus,” Stenerson said. “We are called to speak the truth, but with love.” Ahead of a final court ruling expected this summer, religious leaders on both sides are bracing for the possibility that abortion will become illegal in many states.

Editorial employees at animation studio Bento Box Entertainment unionized with the Motion Picture Editors Guild after management agreed to voluntarily recognize the group through card verification.

A third-party arbitrator confirmed that a majority of the 15 bargaining unit members had signed clearance cards, clearing the way for voluntary recognition, MPEG (IATSE Local 700) said Friday. The bargaining unit includes employees who work in pre- and post-production at the company, responsible for series including Paradise PD and Familiaras well as the next show Krapopolis. In their roles, covered workers edit voice actor recordings, build animatics (essentially animated storyboards) based on artwork created in pre-production, and edit other post-production sound and imagery on animated projects. from Bento Box.

More from The Hollywood Reporter

The Hollywood Reporter asked Bento Box for comment. A map check, which essentially tests whether a union has majority support among the group of workers it wishes to cover and allows both the union and the employer to avoid a formal National Labor Relations Board election , is a method that management and workers typically use to reach a voluntary recognition agreement.

“We are proud of the Bento Box team for taking steps to unionize their workplace, and we are thrilled to welcome them to the Guild family,” MPEG Chairman Alan Heim said in a statement. “As a union parent in animation Guild fight for a #NewDeal4Animation have been clear, animated content plays a huge role in fueling our industry. But too often, the editorial craftsmen who help bring this content to the screen don’t enjoy the same union protections as their live-action counterparts. Kudos to the Bento Box team for standing up to say they deserve a union too.

MPEG is already covering some writers on projects at Bento Box Entertainment, including the Fox animated sitcom Bob’s Burgers, because these projects are carried out in collaboration with studios that have signed the syndicate’s contracts. And other Bento Box workers are also already unionized, including a group allied with The Animation Guild (IATSE Local 839).

Editorial group Bento Box is the latest to unionize in an era that has seen a flurry of animation organizing activity: Earlier this year, production workers from the animated sitcom Hulu solar opposites unionized via an NLRB election, while the card count resulted in voluntary union recognition for production workers at the Los Angeles outpost of animation studio Titmouse and the Adult Swim animated comedy rick and morty. The Animation Guild also expanded beyond the Los Angeles area for the first time, organizing more than 100 workers at the New York site of Titmouse earlier this year.

By JILL LAWLESS and ROBERT BARR, Associated Press

LONDON (AP) — Harrison Birtwistle, the maker of experimental modern music boldly recognized as one of Britain’s greatest contemporary composers, has died aged 87.

The publisher of Birtwistle, Boosey & Hawkes, said he died on Monday at his home in Mere, south-west England. No cause of death was given.

Birtwistle’s compositions, which ranged from chamber pieces to full-scale opera, have been performed at venues including the Royal Opera House, the English National Opera, the Deutsche Staatsoper in Berlin, the BBC Proms in London and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.

His resolutely demanding work sometimes tested the patience of listeners, but the composer was unfazed.

“The issue of accessibility,” Birtwistle once said, “is not my problem.”

“I have an idea. I express it as clearly as possible. The criticism is someone else’s problem,” he added.

Martyn Brabbins, Music Director of English National Opera, said Birtwistle “was a much-loved collaborator and mentor whose work has inspired generations of musicians”.

The Royal Philharmonic Society said on Twitter that he was “a true musical colossus” whose music “shook the earth”.

Short of conventional harmony and heavy with complex rhythms, Birtwistle’s music was often described as having an abrasive quality. In 1995 his piece “Panic” had a highly publicized premiere on live television as part of the hugely popular “Last Night of the Proms” concert.

The BBC has been inundated with complaints. “Did someone strangle a cat?” asked a viewer.

It wasn’t just ordinary musical audiences who grimaced at his work. Benjamin Britten, among Britain’s greatest composers of the 20th century, is said to have left during the intermission of the 1968 premiere of Birtwistle’s chamber opera “Punch and Judy” at Britten’s own Aldeburgh Festival.

Birtwistle said audiences often had dissonance issues because they were unfamiliar.

“It has to do with memory in music,” he told The Sunday Times newspaper in 2019. “For example, if you have a Picasso, it can sit on the wall and be part of your memory, even if you only see it subliminally. In music, time really is fleeting. Modern music is not heard long enough to become familiar. You are not familiar with it.

Born in Accrington, North West England, on July 15, 1934, Birtwistle studied clarinet and composition at the Royal Manchester College of Music, where his contemporaries included composer Peter Maxwell Davies and the late pianist John Ogdon. In 1965, Birtwistle sold his clarinets and devoted all his time to composition.

His works include ‘The Mask of Orpheus’, staged by English National Opera in 1986; “Exody,” which the Chicago Symphony Orchestra premiered under Daniel Barenboim in 1998; “Gawain”, which premiered in 1991 at the Royal Opera House; and “The Minotaur”, which debuted at the same location in 2008.

Press Association, Britain’s news agency, said “Gawain” was “cutting edge and has no trace of a song”. But Rodney Milnes, editor of ‘Opera’ magazine, said the opera ‘captured the imagination without remorse’.

Reviewing ‘The Minotaur’, critic Anna Picard wrote in The Independent: “Long on ugliness, short of redeeming beauty, rich with the rough, pungent poetry of David Harsent’s libretto, Birtwistle’s score is as violent than his subject.

But in the Evening Standard, Fiona Maddocks described it as “music of full-bodied, searing beauty”.

The music came from a unique perspective.

“I dream in the abstract – can you imagine that?” he told the BBC in 2002. “Can you imagine some kind of cogs, wooden cogs that are supposed to fit, but don’t. And then you try to put them in another way and they don’t, and it’s kind of hard to describe, but it’s kind of an abstraction.

In 1987, Birtwistle won the $150,000 Grawemeyer Prize for Composition from the University of Louisville in the United States for his opera “The Mask of Orpheus”. He was made Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by France in 1986, was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 1988 and was elevated in 2001 to the rank of Companion of Honor, a British distinction limited to 65 people. alive.

Birtwistle, the subject of so much criticism, memorably handed it out to pop musicians in 2006 when he accepted an Ivor Novello award.

“Why is your music so (expletive) strong? ” he said. “You must all be brain dead. Maybe you are. I didn’t know there were so many shots until the last half hour. Have fun. Goodbye.”

Birtwistle’s wife, Sheila, died in 2012. He is survived by their three sons.
