One trend that has emerged is that onlineadvertising has replaced retailing as the Web sector that is most in demand. While in2005 eBay was ranked 14 and there were two other retail companies in the top 20, thisyear eBay is ranked 92 and its the only retail company in the entire top 100. On the other hand there are now two online advertising companies in the top 10 in the 2006list – ValueClick (#5) and aQuantive (#7). Digitas comes in at #54 and two Chineseonline advertising companies – Sohu.com (#32) and Sina (#52) – are in the top 100.BusinessWeek notesthat the Internet ad market grew to $12.5 billion last year, a 30 percent increase from2004. All other reports I’ve been reading indicate that there is much more growth tocome. Digitas is currently the marketleader in online advertising. It creates online ad campaigns for big clients likeAmerican Express and GM, “which together accounted for nearly half of ’05 sales”. Thesecond biggest player in this market is aQuantive.The Chinese market is obviously one towatch – “Web advertising is growing three times faster in China than in the States;Sohu is the top seller, with rights to represent the ’08 Olympics in Beijing.”

Mourinho only felt Man Utd at their best when…by Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveFormer Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho felt he only saw his players at their best mentally when they went a goal down.The Manchester Evening News says Mourinho felt he learnt more about his players when they went a goal behind, and that they would only start performing to their full potential once this happened.After beating Swansea, the Portuguese even explained how going behind worked well for United, despite it piling pressure on him.He said: “The only thing I want to see, but I don’t want to see if it happens, is the team losing and see the way we emotionally react to it because it’s also another stage to be losing and try to change a result.”Because, at the moment, everything is going in our favour but it’s not always motorway.

London: India captain Virat Kohli was Wednesday named as the Leading Cricketer of the year for the third successive time by the 2019 edition of Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack. Kohli, who amassed 2735 runs across the three formats in 2018, was picked as one of the five Wisden Cricketers of the year, along with England’s Tammy Beaumont, Jos Buttler, Sam Curran and Rory Burns. The Indian skipper is only the third cricketer ever to have won the award more than three times after Don Bradman (10 times) and Jack Hobbs (8 times). Indian women opener Smriti Mandhana bagged the women’s Leading Cricketer of the Year. Kohli had notched up 593 runs in five Tests at an average of 59.3 during India’s 1-4 loss to England and ended the year with five centuries to his name. Mandhana was rewarded for scoring 669 and 662 runs in ODIs and T20Is last year. She also amassed 421 runs at an astounding strike rate of 174.68 in the women’s Super League. Afghanistan spinner Rashid Khan was named the Leading T20 Cricketer of the Year for the second year in a row, following his superb performance last year. He took 22 wickets at an average of 8.68 for Afghanistan in T20Is, besides scalping 21 wickets in the Indian Premier League 2018. The Five Cricketers of the Year are chosen by Lawrence Booth, the editor of the Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack, with the 2019 version serving as the 156th edition.

We tell you more details about Cristiano Ronaldo’s decision to not attend The Best awards organized by FIFA this Monday in London, England.The Best awards organized by FIFA will happen this Monday in London, we are ready to live a historic day in which neither Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo are favorites to win the main award of the evening. We already confirmed that the Barcelona captain will attend the ceremony as his club’s ambassador, plus he is nominated for the Puskas Award for his goal against Nigeria in the World Cup but he is unlikely to win it. But the bigger story is Cristiano Ronaldo’s absence from the gala, the Portuguese forward has been going through some difficult times after leaving Real Madrid and he feels like the world of football is currently against him personally because he obviously thinks he should win all the awards this year. This is the real reason why the Juventus player has decided to skip this ceremony like he already did with the UEFA Awards recently, not attending that gala to honor his former Real Madrid teammates was seen as a low point of his career because he lacked class in the way he took losing the Player of the Year award to Luka Modric. It’s clear that Ronaldo is still going through a hard time after “breaking up” with Los Blancos, the wounds are still fresh and he prefers to concentrate on Juventus.🙌 @Cristiano & @fbernardeschi make it a super Sunday 🙌🗞➡️ https://t.co/vEeFlwvkwS #FrosinoneJuve ⚪️⚫️ #ForzaJuve pic.twitter.com/kheQn3sWWf— JuventusFC (@juventusfcen) September 23, 2018Ronaldo’s political reason for not attending the gala.But the player has already been instructed by Juventus to not make any statements, the club will take care of giving the reasons for the Portuguese forward to not attend the ceremony. The Italian giants have the perfect excuse to explain Ronaldo’s absence from the ceremony, which is their Wednesday Serie A match against Bologna. According to a Diario AS report, they consider Ronaldo needs to be rested for this match after he played this Sunday against Frosinone and scored his third goal for Juventus. Attending the gala in London on Monday, would leave Cristiano with very little time to rest properly for this crucial match and they don’t want him to perform under pressure for not having the rest he required. Juventus are currently going through a perfect start of the season in all competitions despite not having Cristiano Ronaldo performing at his very best, but the club doesn’t want him to get distracted now that he’s started to score the goals at least in Serie A. The Champions League problems the star had last week, affected Ronaldo’s confidence as he could miss more than one match and the club wants to keep him as happy as possible for the domestic competition.✌️ Goals. ✌️ Match-winners. 😍😍#FinoAllaFine ⚪️⚫️ #ForzaJuve pic.twitter.com/TW8LQF7iLLKarsdorp reveals he had too much stress at Roma Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 The Dutch defender has been with the Gialorrossi since 2017, but he has not enjoyed his time in the Italian Lega Serie A.— JuventusFC (@juventusfcen) September 23, 2018The consequences of Cristiano Ronaldo not attending are several, his absence from an award show in which he is nominated for the second time this year will send a negative message to everyone about his predisposition to honor his peers in the sport. But also, Cristiano Ronaldo is nominated for the Puskas Award for his amazing goal against Juventus last season when he was still playing for Real Madrid, but the Portuguese forward has an even smaller chance to win this trophy than he would have if he attended the event. FIFA usually doesn’t recognize the people who don’t honor their invitation to their events, this is why Gareth Bale’s goal against Liverpool in the Champions League final is the clear favorite to win this award. Cristiano Ronaldo would become the first player to win two Puskas Awards in history, after the one he won back in 2009 when the recognition was created by FIFA. Back when the Portuguese forward still played for Manchester United, his goal against FC Porto in the Champions League gave him the first ever Puskas Award in history. The bicycle kick goal he scored against Juventus last season, is arguably the best goal for this year’s prize but Ronaldo will miss on the chance to pick it up.🙌 @Cristiano 🙌⚪️ #ForzaJuve ⚫️ pic.twitter.com/e54qzhD9ib— JuventusFC (@juventusfcen) September 23, 2018What do you think about Ronaldo’s reasons for not attending The Best Awards organized by FIFA?
