The injury thing (again)*
at 08:55 25 Nov 2020

Obviously, we are not the only club whose players - important players - get injuries, even long term ones. But we do seem to be losing almost all our key men** for the majority of the season (and often from pretty much the start), virtually every year. That doesn't appear to be happening at most other places - or they are somehow able to get around the situation.

Is it a matter that players don't get enough recuperation and overdo it during pre-season preparation? Do we rush them back into the team too quickly after injury? I don't know any answers, but we can't be left working on drastically reduced squads so often.

There was a lot less of the aimless passing it about at the back. By no means eradicated and there was still the tendency to send the ball back to the 'keeper, but it didn't seem so frequent or, mostly, to go on for so long.

Donald Trump's legal case

Or, rather, a complete demolition thereof: https://www.courtlistener.com/recap/gov.uscourts.pamd.127057/gov.uscourts.pamd.1

A fairly long and technical read (with the odd caustic footnote), but interesting and quite amusing at the same time.

Useful interim measure

while renewables and, particularly, battery storage get up to speed over the next 20 years? Possibly more cost-effective than the current, larger projects and can be individually decommissioned when the time comes.

Trump did ring up Rupert Murdoch and shout at him over the Fox early call on Arizona, it seems like he may have upset the old boy. Or perhaps experienced manipulator Rupert merely no longer wants to be associated with Donald's crude blustering?

Too much is already being read into this election
at 09:45 5 Nov 2020

in terms of support among American people for Trump the man, his views and approach.

But this wasn't just Trump v Biden (or Trump v almost anyone else). It was also Republican v Democrat, "conservative" v "liberal" - even, to an extent, rural/small town v urban. There are a very large number of people who will vote for the Republican programme and philosophy, almost irrespective of who is in charge. There are swathes of the country (as in the UK) who will traditionally go for whichever is the more conservative of the parties, just out of habit and perceived alignment.

In addition, Biden was not a forceful, charismatic candidate likely to draw voters to him (e.g. Macron). He is in no way a revolutionary. He is - and was largely marketed as - a pretty regular guy who was not Donald Trump. He offers a return to earlier norms, rather than real change, but without promising to resurrect the prosperity which many areas enjoyed during the post-War boom.

In this cycle, the Democrats have perhaps relied too much upon revulsion for Trump the individual to drive voters into their arms. It has certainly run things very close and may yet cost them victory.

That anyone would have a hard time with items being described as veggie/vegan burgers, sausages, etc. (as per this: https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2020/oct/16/eu-ban-veggie-burger-label-p ).

Those terms describe the form of the food, not its composition. Plus they are a direct equivalent and always prefaced with the descriptor implying a lack of meat.
