MSE Announces 2020-21 Programming for Esports Sub-Brand Caps Gaming

Monumental Sports & Entertainment today announced its 2020-21 season programming for Caps Gaming – an esports-focused sub-brand that aims to help foster the growth of the NHL competitive gaming community and create visibility for hockey’s esports scene. As the focal point of its programming this season, Caps Gaming will bring back the Caps Gaming Showcase presented by Leidos again for 2020-21.

The Caps Gaming Showcase is an EA Sports NHL21 competition featuring the best 6’s teams in the NHL gaming community. In 2019-20, 82 teams participated in the Caps Gaming Showcase. This year’s competition will be an eight-week, Swiss-format event beginning in early December 2020. At the conclusion of the eight weeks, the top 32 teams will qualify for a single-elimination tournament that will run from early February through early March. The total prize pool for the Caps Gaming Showcase in this season is $20,000. Signups for the Caps Gaming Showcase will begin in mid-November. Leidos returns as the presenting partner for the Caps Gaming Showcase for the second year in a row and will have brand integration on Caps Gaming Showcase livestreams on the Capitals’ Twitch channel, social graphics, and on Caps Gaming jerseys worn by all four semifinalist teams in the Showcase. 

“When we first introduced Caps Gaming to the ‘Chel’ community, we were blown away by the response,” said Zach Leonsis, SVP, Strategic Initiatives at Monumental Sports & Entertainment. “We couldn’t be more excited to expand upon last year’s inaugural season of Caps Gaming and continue to engage with this quickly growing esports community. Esports is a key growth initiative for Monumental Sports & Entertainment, and Caps Gaming is certainly an important part of our strategy.”

In addition to the Caps Gaming Showcase, Caps Gaming is pleased to announce a new competition for this season, the Caps

Appify Announces Launch of No-Code Appify Marketplace, Plus Two Premium Apps for Field Service and Field Sales

Appify (formerly Turbo Systems), the fast-growing no-code platform for business apps, today announced the launch of the Appify Marketplace, where companies of all sizes can access, customize and deploy new apps in minutes to automate critical tasks and better serve customers across their businesses.

Appify is kicking off the launch of the Marketplace by offering two premium Apps to help transform the experience of mobile field workers. With Appify Field Service and Appify Field Sales premium apps, companies can deploy apps to help their field teams manage work orders, assets, inventory, quotes, customer and contact information; or to generate project bids from wherever they’re engaging with customers or prospects, in minutes.

These latest enhancements to the Appify suite have allowed mid-market businesses like Modesto Irrigation District to increase efficiency significantly as crews can handle more jobs through better visibility. Partners Tech Services, ATM servicing for Diebold and other ATM manufacturers, saw similar advantages from moving their paper-based process to Appify, each field worker has gotten back at least an hour per day in efficiency gains when using the Appify Field Service app.

GDT Repair, a family-owned business that helps restaurants keep their equipment running and whose clients include big-name restaurant chains like Applebee’s, Panera Bread and Tim Hortons now uses Appify Field Service to cut back hours typically spent on manual paperwork. In addition, the app allows them to reduce its time to deliver invoices from 15 days to five minutes leading to increased cash flow for the business.

“Before Appify Field Service, all repair technicians would capture details of work onsite with paper, take pictures on their phones and didn’t have access to customer data,” said President of GDT Repair, Blake Tarana. “But with this new Appify App, we can now easily create and manage jobs on a mobile

ODEI Announces Funding for Programming and Learning about Antiracism

Author(s)

Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Announcement  •

The Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (ODEI) alongside Human Resources and Inclusive Communities and Student Affairs and Inclusive Excellence has launched the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Action Plan that will guide our work during the 2020-2021 academic year. One of our action items is to facilitate substantive discussions throughout the year on exploring the term antiracism and its implications for DU. These conversations will revolve around specific outcomes to make recommendations to the DEI Steering Committee and inform new strategic priorities at the university as well as unit-level strategic planning and programming. 

We are soliciting proposals up to $5,000 from University of Denver students, staff, and faculty representing departments, offices, units, and campus organizations to support programming and/or learning opportunities to explore antiracism. As you consider submitting a proposal, here are a few questions to guide your thinking.

  1. What is antiracism? 
  2. Where has antiracism been practiced at DU/in your area?  In what ways has DU/your area fallen short of or engaged in antiracism? 
  3. What are antiracism’s implications in the context of DU’s past, present, and future?  

Examples of such programming may include (but are not limited to) lectures, workshops, panel discussions, movie reviews, challenges, or a speaker series.


 Application Components: 

Applications for funding will need to include a written statement, no longer than 2 pages single spaced, that describes the following: 

  1. Background and Overview – Explain how the programming/learning opportunity will engage the department/office/unit and (if relevant) build on previous DEI work. Priority will be given to those engagements that involve more than one department, division, office, or organization and that envision larger campus-wide involvement. 
  2. Objectives – Please use the Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy or the 6 Dimensions of Significant Learning to frame your objectives vis-a-vis at
