If you are already into sports betting, you can get rich in simple ways. There are many people who hit the headlines after betting and hitting the jackpot. Many of them have placed bets that have changed their lives from the large sum of money they get. Still, on the same ground, other people have lost a lot of money from losing their bets.
If you want to become a millionaire, you must be able to accumulate your bets and combinations, backed up with luck and skills. To achieve this, you must be in a good position to accumulate the best odds to harvest a good sum of money. The points below do not assure you that you will win every time you place a bet. However, they will help you stay longer in the game and increase your chances of winning. Check them out.
- Notion of Value
From time to time, you might have heard people praise a certain team, saying how it can never lose. Most times, people say this when their favorite team is playing. However, it is important to weigh between the odds offered and the probability of the team winning. It is crucial to avoid this kind of mindset when placing a bet. By recognizing value, you can capture various opportunities left open. Often, many people do not want to risk placing on the larger bets with the fear of losing. You must spot value and recognize the systematic and consistent odds. Being able to spot value is hard but of the essence in the betting world.
- Understand How Odds are Made
Depending on how popular the even is, odds are generally made depending on what the public behaves. The bookmakers do not primarily rely on the outcome but the behavior of the general public. The bookmakers aim to reduce liability and attract commission. If you want to be successful, now where to play. Take the opportunity where you think people will think wrong. Ensure you have a bookmaker that you can talk to on how things will go. Remember that the bookmakers aim to direct the public away from what might be the outcome. Therefore, take that opportunity.
- Plan Mathematically
If you have been betting for a while now, you must have noticed that betting is all about playing with numbers. Although many gamblers have made it through instincts, you need something long-term. For instance, in today’s cricket news, you need a staking plan to understand the odds and see the probability. Since you cannot dispense mathematics, the percentage of probability is a prerequisite.
- Think Long-term
If you have decided to bet seriously, then you require having long-term plans. Build the investment by increasing the amount of money you use for every bet. With time, you will realize that you are making a good sum of money out of it. This is just like a business investment. You need ample time, resources, and patience to build it. Even if you start with slow progress, there is an assurance that you will experience exponential growth with time. However, you must be able to know how to deal with losses, wins, and betting fluctuations. You must also run how you are going to make your betting curve smooth. All in all, you will be surprised by how much progress you can make within a short time if you understand the industry well.

- Learn to Like the Unwanted Teams
Mostly, the bookmakers place great value on the team hated by many people. When people work with instincts, they tend to lean on the side with consistent winning. If the public thinks less of a team, the higher the odds will be. Think of a team that has been on the lead for a while. If the team starts to lose or falls behind with about 5 games, many people are unlikely to bet on it. This is how its value rises.
If you want to make a good fortune out of sports betting, you must know how to play the game right. There are no shortcuts in betting and no guarantees. Make sure you know how to play your cards right.

Amitabh Bachchan is adored by the public for his unforgettable on-screen performances as well as his magnetic demeanour. Not only do fans love Amitabh Bachchan's outstanding performance, but the actor's heartwarming words are also highly regarded. A much moved Amitabh Bachchan, during his speech to the crowd of over 80,000 people at the Reliance Industries' annual event, said that the legacy left by Dhirubhai has had a positive impact on millions of people's lives worldwide.
When Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan became bankrupt in the late 1990s, Dhirubhai Ambani stepped forward to give him financial assistance. In his speech, Bachchan remembered that Dhirubhai had sent Anil Ambani to offer him financial assistance during the crisis, which he had respectfully declined. Lenders began knocking on his door, losses mounted, and his bank account dwindled to nothing. He said, "Dhirubhai's money might have gotten me out of the problem quickly. However, I respectfully declined his offer and gradually began to find work again, which let me pay off my debt."

Later, after Bachchan had recovered from the bankruptcy, one day he was invited to an event at Dhirubhai's residence; Bachchan added, "Dhirubhai was standing and having a chat with his industrialist friends when he saw me there, he called me, firstly I felt shy even to present myself in front of such big industrialists but then, I went there, and Dhirubhai declared in front of all of them that 'This young man had fallen but managed to get back up on his own, I have a lot of respect for him because of that.' Those words of his were worth much more to me than any amount of money that he could have offered me."
It was the "Reliance Family Day" event and was attended by members of the Ambani family from all generations. The event commemorated the company's 40-year journey since its inception. It also celebrated the 85th birthday of the late Dhirubhai Ambani, RILs (Reliance Industries Limited) founder.

In comparison to adults, children are prone to getting traumatized by troubling events easily, and this makes it important for parents to help their children when the times are tough. It could be a brutal accident, an unprecedented pandemic, a violent crime, or other disasters but with the right parental support, children have a higher chance of coming out stronger from an awful situation.
Anuja Kapur, Psychologist shares few tips wherein you can assist your child when tough times comes calling:
Every child responds differently to disturbing events: What children feel about a current disaster in their life and how they react to it can come and go in waves. Children can act moody and withdrawn at times, struck with sorrow and fear at other times. There's no absolute "right" or "wrong" way to feel after a traumatic event so make sure not to dictate what your child or how your child should feel and react to the event.

Encourage your child to be transparent: Just make sure you let your child know that whatever feelings they're experiencing is normal. The unpleasantness will pass if your child opens up about it and that the phase is temporary. While many teens may be reluctant to talk about their feelings with a parent, encourage them to confide in another trusted adult such as a family friend, relative, or a counselor and teacher. It's important to talkeeven if it's not with you.

Deter your child from reliving the disturbing event: Dwelling over, watching the footage, or imagining the event can be overwhelmingly stressful for children and this stress can even block their nervous system. However, to negate such things from happening encourage activities that keep your child's mind occupied so they're not obsessive about the event. You could encourage your children to read, play games together, or simply watch an uplifting movie.

The European Commission, the executive arm of the European Union (EU), has announced plans for smartphone and other electronics manufacturers to fit a common USB-C charging port on their devices in an effort to reduce waste. In addition to phones, the rules will apply to other devices like tablets, headphones, portable speakers, videogame consoles, and cameras, reports The Verge. The decision will have a huge impact on Apple, as the company still uses its own Lightning connector to charge iPhones. The proposals only cover devices using wired, not wireless and a USB-C port is only mandatory for devices that charge using a cable.

"Chargers power all our most essential electronic devices. With more and more devices, more and more chargers are sold that are not interchangeable or not necessary. We are putting an end to that," the report quoted EU commissioner Thierry Breton as saying.
The Commission also wants to unbundle the sale of chargers from the sale of electronic devices, which it says will improve the consumers' convenience. "With our proposal, European consumers will be able to use a single charger for all their portable electronics - an important step to increase convenience and reduce waste." In addition, the Commission will require manufacturers to provide relevant information about charging performance. (IANS/MBI)
