Breaking News: Mane not joining Town.
at 02:13 18 Jun 2022

Sadio Mane will not be joining Town after Liverpool rejected two bids for the player. Instead, he will join Bayern Munich after the club's agreed a fee of £35m.

Mane was a potential forward option after Nunez signed for Liverpool earlier in the week. It's thought Mane choose Bayern Munich for the lure of Champions League football and delicious sausages.

Mane, who is 30 year's old, would have been a great signing for Ipswich, after scoring 90 goals for Liverpool.

Not sure what the answer is here. Not like we can realistically stand up to China military or even economically without significant repercussions.

Youngest person was detained in the concentration camp at the same age as when Anne Frank was caught.

Football Facts
at 02:31 20 May 2022

Birmingham are the club the have been promoted to and relegated from the top flight the most. 12 times in total.

In the UK we call clubs like these yo-yo clubs. But not every nation uses the same term.

In many nations clubs like these are call elevator teams or lift teams. In Denmark, for example, they use the term elevatorhold

Some other nations also use toys to describe these type of clubs. In Poland, for example, they use the term wańka-wstańka, which means roly-poly-toy.

Norwich City would be considered an archetypal wańka-wstańka club, and haven't been in the same league as Fulham - another yo-yo club - since 2018.

Massacre of Bucha

Guess we're just going to let this continue to happen, rather than sufficiently protecting Ukrainians.

More empty words from European leaders "condemning" atrocities.

USA and UK had an agreement to protect Ukrainian sovereignty. We have dishonoured this.

Their reaction is almost as though they don't realise they are in a war. "Attacking us will be bad for negotiations" - Ermmm, you've invaded a country. The other side is going to attack you. That is a large part of what defines a war.

Sidney Poitier article
at 16:07 7 Jan 2022

https://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-27198480

Think this is a bit weird... First paragraph is "Sidney Poitier, who has died aged 94, once turned down the role of Othello because he did not want to be typecast as a black actor."

But the title literally reinforces the stereotype he wanted to avoid "Obituary: Iconic black actor Sir Sidney Poitier".

What do people think? Am I reading this incorrectly? Or is it a disrespectful and uneasy juxtaposition?
