magnate Gina Rinehart pulls $15 million netball sponsorship
amid 'virtue signalling' accusations - 22nd October
netball in Australia is once again on the brink of
collapse after mining magnate Gina Rinehart announced
she was pulling her proposed $15 million sponsorship
of the organisation and its elite squad, the Diamonds.
a statement released early on Saturday afternoon,
the company took a swipe at Netball Australia, saying
it didn't want to add to their "disunity problems",
and announced they would withdraw the proposal "effective
will, however, still offer a four-month sponsorship
while the organisation finds a replacement.
and Roy Hill do not wish to add to Netball's disunity
problems, and accordingly Hancock has advised Netball
Australia (the governing body of netball in Australia)
that it has withdrawn from its proposed partnership
effective immediately," the statement read.
down the statement, the company also took a swipe
at environmentalists it claims "neglect"
is critical to securing the minerals essential for
everyday life," it read.
often conveniently neglected truth when activists
talk emotively about mining is that most, if not all,
of the primary products required for the equipment,
production, distribution and delivery of renewable
energy depend on resources that need to be mined."
?Diamonds players released a joint statement in which
the cohort expressed its disappointment over the withdrawal.

has withdrawn their sponsorship offer," the statement

Netball Australia has emphasised, these funds go towards

something that is of critical importance to us."

Australia chair Wendy Archer said the decision was
a disappointing outcome for the sport.
has been a challenging period for all involved and
while every effort has been made from all parties
to resolve the issues surrounding the sensitivities
of the partnership, unfortunately we have not been
able to achieve a mutually satisfactory outcome,"
said the organisation would "reassess its funding

excellence to achieve their sporting dreams and to
represent our country at their very best.

or political causes without virtue signaling or for
a team meeting earlier this month, Indigenous shooter
Donnell Wallam - who is set to make her Diamonds debut
against England at the end of the month - spoke about
her desire to not wear the Hancock logo, ?given its

proposal that some Indigenous people be sterilised
to "breed themselves out".
teammates reportedly stood with her, declaring they
would not let her look any different from them on
her debut in the green and gold dress.
Diamonds have played by the motto 'sisters in arms'
for the past decade.
Diamonds have not worn the Hancock logo during the
ongoing Constellation ?Cup against New Zealand.
the statement, Hancock said it "would only ever
want athletes to wear the Hancock logo if the athletes
were proud to do so", but then denied reports
the players had refused to wear the logo.
Australia this week announced it would end its partnership
with Alinta Energy at the end of the contract period
next June, amid claims chief executive Nick Hockley
had been pressured to do so by skipper Pat Cummins.
their own statement, Cricket Australia denied those

Australia. Well documented slogan... "Go Woke,
Go Broke". In this case it may be a prophecy.
Any diamonds in the rough yet? Diamonds are rolling
around and scattered. This is the most publicity Australian
Netball has ever received in Australia down under
ever, to the best of my knowledge, so that says it
all! Any publicity is good publicity (but the exception
proves the rule)! I know plenty of other sports teams
and other worthy causes that could do with a cash
injection and/or sponsorship Gina and Hancock Prospecting.
It's the business of sport and professional sport,
so the powers that be and team should treat it professionally.
I'm a tree hugger at heart - aren't we all, and I
get a bit torn on the mining sector at times, but
it's a business that helps keep Australia strong.
An old sports broadcasting legend, Mean Gene Okerlund
of WWF (WWE) fame said back in 1984 while ringside
at Madison Square Garden, New York, during an 'Iron
Sheik' (Hossein Khosrow Ali Vaziri) match, "Politics
and sports, athletics, do not mix"! Still holds
true to a large degree. Readers can decide who did
the fowl. GR already did!

I worked directly in the Australian subscriber television

I stopped watching terrestrial television and nightly

advertising is a form of contextual advertising where
specific keywords within the text of a web-page are
matched with advertising and/or related information
contextual advertising in general refers to the inclusion
of advertisements adjacent to relevant online context
(e.g., Google AdSense), in-text advertising places
hyperlinks directly into the text of the webpage.
In-text advertising is commonly available from In-Text
Ad Networks like Kontera using technology such as
IntelliTXT, or offered by publishers using Ad Serving
technology from PowerLinks Media.
text advertising commonly works on a cost per click
(CPC) model, which means that each time a website
visitor clicks on an In-text ad, the websites owner
gets paid by the advertiser. Other models include
cost per impression (CPM), cost per action CPA and
cost per play CPP for multimedia content ads (also
known as Pay Per Play (PPP) (Wikipedia)
advertising is a form of targeted advertising for
advertisements appearing on websites or other media,
such as content displayed in mobile browsers. The
advertisements themselves are selected and served
by automated systems based on the identity of the
user and the content displayed.
(PPC), also known as cost per click (CPC), is an internet
advertising model used to direct traffic to websites,
in which an advertiser pays a publisher (typically
a website owner or a network of websites) when the
ad is clicked.
is commonly associated with first-tier search engines
(such as Google AdWords and Microsoft Bing Ads). With
search engines, advertisers typically bid on keyword
phrases relevant to their target market. In contrast,
content sites commonly charge a fixed price per click
rather than use a bidding system. PPC "display"
advertisements, also known as "banner" ads,
are shown on web sites with related content that have
agreed to show ads and are typically not pay-per-click
advertising. Social networks such as Facebook and
Twitter have also adopted pay-per-click as one of
their advertising models.
websites can offer PPC ads. Websites that utilize
PPC ads will display an advertisement when a keyword
query matches an advertiser's keyword list that has
been added in different ad groups, or when a content
site displays relevant content. Such advertisements
are called sponsored links or sponsored ads, and appear
adjacent to, above, or beneath organic results on
search engine results pages, or anywhere a web developer
chooses on a content site.
PPC advertising model is open to abuse through click
fraud, although Google and others have implemented
automated systems] to guard against abusive clicks
by competitors or corrupt web developers. (Wikipedia)
