Former Lions QB Dan Orlovsky makes comment on Twitter after not getting MNF gig

Published

on

Dan Orlovsky may not have been an All-Pro NFL quarterback with the Detroit Lions but for those of you who have followed his work since leaving the league, you know he has been an All-Pro analyst. (At least I believe he has!)

In early May, reports surfaced suggesting that Orlovsky was in the running to get an analyst role on Monday night football, along with former Michigan QB Brian Griese and Louis Riddick.

On Saturday, ESPN announced that they are giving the MNF analyst gig to Riddick, which is not a huge surprise as he has worked for the channel since 2013.

A day later, Orlovsky has taken to Twitter and made a comment which we assume is in regard to not getting the Monday Night Football job.

“I don’t want it handed to me. It always means more when it’s earned Always has. Always will.”

Dan has the perfect attitude about this, which is exactly why he will eventually get exactly what he earns.

My guess is that he will be big time!

Latin music star Maluma’s Sept. 12 Pechanga Arena San Diego gig is dormant venue’s first new show of 2021

Published

By

The announcement that reggaeton-music star Maluma will perform Sept. 12 at Pechanga Arena San Diego is newsworthy for more than just musical reasons or his past collaborations with Jennifer Lopez, Shakira and Madonna.

Maluma’s concert, part of the U.S. leg of the Colombian singer’s Papi Juancho 2021 World Tour, is the first new 2021 concert to be announced at Pechanga Arena. It also appears to be the first major new concert by any pop artist, at any indoor or outdoor San Diego County venue, to be announced this year — as opposed to a concert that was postponed from 2020 because of the coronavirus pandemic.

With the exception of drive-in performances, no ticketed concerts or live events are currently allowed under San Diego County and California state health regulations. Even so, Maluma’s Pechanga Arena show will be a full-capacity performance. All 13,500 tickets will go on sale Friday, apart from those allotted to a Maluma fan club pre-sale, which began today.

“The show’s promoter and Pechanga Arena San Diego understand that if local health guidelines do not allow for a full house on the event date, the show will be rescheduled,” said Kristi Reedy, the venue’s marketing director, in response to questions from the Union-Tribune.

“Pechanga Arena San Diego continues to work with event organizers and promoter partners in anticipation of a return of live events. This includes the advance sale of tickets for future events that are being scheduled.”

The concert and live events industry came shuddering to a halt last March because of the pandemic. As a result, lost 2020 income in the U.S. alone was estimated to exceed $9 billion, with losses of about $16 billion in the rest of the world.

On Jan. 29, the 2021 editions of both the Coachella and Stagecoach music festivals in Indio were canceled outright, after being postponed from last April to last October to this April. Also canceled were the 2020 editions of two San Diego festivals, KAABOO and Wonderfront.

In an October Union-Tribune article, the majority of concert and festival experts interviewed predicted that their industry would not be able to fully return to normal until 2022, although some held out hope a partial reopening of their industry could begin in late summer or early fall. It remains to be seen if the timing of Maluma’s 23-city U.S. arena tour, which is scheduled to open Sept. 2 in Sacramento and conclude Oct. 24 in Chicago, will be propitious or premature.

The tour is being produced by Cardenas Marketing Network, which in a statement said that it “will follow and comply with recommendations and guidelines imposed by governmental authorities and public health departments.”

As of this writing, the first scheduled concert this year at Pechanga Arena is a performance by James Taylor and Jackson Browne on May 29 — one year to the day from their postponed 2020 concert at the same venue. The original concert was part of Taylor’s joint tour with Browne, who was later diagnosed with COVID-19.

Regardless of the timing, Pechanga Arena — which for decades was known as the San Diego Sports Arena — is eager to resume operations with new health measures in place that could serve as a template for other concert and live events venues. The venue is operated by ASM Global, which is co-owned by AEG, the producer of the Coachella and Stagecoach festivals. ASM Global was selected last August by then-San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer to build a new arena and create an entertainment district on the 48-acre city site that houses Pechanga Arena.

“When Pechanga Arena receives approval from our local health officials to reopen, we will be deploying VenueShield, ASM Global’s comprehensive and industry-leading reopening program,” Reedy, the San Diego venue’s marketing director, said. “… Rest assured that all policies will be aligned with — and informed by — public health authorities, medical and industry experts.”

Tickets for Maluma are priced from $55.50 to $406.50 each. They go on sale to the general public Friday at 10 a.m. at axs.com.

GIG inks wind offtake with Danone in Poland – reNews

Published

By

Macquarie’s Green Investment Group (GIG) has signed an agreement with Danone companies in Poland to supply renewable energy through a 10-year power purchase agreement (PPA).

The power will be provided by GIG’s Jozwin wind farm, which was acquired by the business last year.

Route-to-market and balancing services will be provided by Axpo Polska, with Axpo also acting as the intermediary with food giant Danone, which will use Axpo as their licenced electricity provider.

This PPA will support Danone’s current decarbonisation goals as its Polish operations make up 6% of the business’ total energy usage around the world.

Danone is part of RE100, a collection of the companies that have committed to using 100% renewable electricity.

Danone’s commitment is to reach 100% of renewable electricity by 2030. 

At the end of 2020, Danone exceeded its previous target of 50% by 2020, getting 54.3% of its electricity from renewable sources.

GIG Europe head Edward Northam said: “This agreement shows our ability to work in partnership with our customers, in this case Danone, to develop bespoke solutions under challenging market conditions.

“Having understood Danone’s specific needs, GIG in partnership with Axpo, has created and delivered a solution that meets Danone’s energy and carbon reduction ambitions in a cost-effective manner.”

GIG has now supported 18 corporates with PPAs, equating to 3GW of renewables capacity.
