  8. Liverpool set for record payday as clubs agree to delay cuts FILE PHOTO: Soccer Football - Premier League - Liverpool v Chelsea - Anfield, Liverpool, Britain - July 22, 2020 Liverpool's Jordan Henderson with team mates celebrates with the trophy after winning the Premier League Pool via REUTERS/Paul Ellis (Reuters) - Liverpool will receive a record 175 million pounds ($228.45 million) payout for winning the Premier League after all 20 clubs in England's top-flight agreed to postpone any reductions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the Times. The newspaper reported on Wednesday that teams will receive their entire payout for last season and rebates to broadcasters, which could amount to 330 million pounds ($430.49 million), would be spread out over future campaigns. If the rebate was applied, Liverpool's prize money would have been reduced by 21 million pounds, the Times said, citing financial expert Swiss Ramble. The 2019-20 season was the first of a three-year cycle in which international broadcast revenue would be allocated to clubs based on where they finished in the table instead of it being split equally between the teams. The Times also said top flight teams had agreed to make solidarity payments to English Football League (EFL) clubs in addition to the 125 million pounds in advance payments agreed in April. The Premier League declined to comment.

  13. I used to be an Ubuntu users, but switched to Linux Mint when Ubuntu started to dumb down the user interface, making it more like something designed for a tablet or mobile 'phone. Linux mint comes in various editions. However, the "standard" edition is probably going to be the best fit. Note you also have a choice of user interfaces, Cinnamon and Mate. Finally, don't forget to try and run from a thumb drive before you install to check out whether everything works OK (mouse/keyboard/audio/CD drive). Getting printing to work will need to be addressed after an install.
  14. Odegaard bids farewell to Sociedad before Madrid return FILE PHOTO: Soccer Football - La Liga Santander - FC Barcelona v Real Sociedad - Camp Nou, Barcelona, Spain - March 7, 2020 Real Sociedad's Martin Odegaard during the warm up before the match REUTERS/Albert Gea/File Photo MADRID (Reuters) - Norway midfielder Martin Odegaard has confirmed that he is leaving Real Sociedad to return to Real Madrid after a hugely successful loan spell at the Basque club. Odegaard, who became Real Madrid's youngest player when he made his debut at 16 back in 2015, joined Sociedad on a season-long loan last year, with the option of a second campaign. The midfielder said last October that he wished to stay for two years at Sociedad in search of some consistency after three loans in three years, but the Liga champions have recalled the 21-year-old to their squad ahead of the new campaign. "I wanted to send all the fans a farewell message but above all a message of gratitude for what has been an unforgettable year for me," Odegaard said in a video https://www.realsociedad.eus/es/noticias/detalle/me-habeis-hecho-sentir-un-canterano-mas released on Sociedad's official website. Odegaard helped Sociedad make a push for a top-four finish and although they missed out on qualifying for the Champions League, they ended sixth to clinch a Europa League berth on the final day of the season. They also knocked Real Madrid out of the Copa del Rey on their way to reaching the final against Athletic Bilbao, which has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. "I have experienced great moments with this shirt, starting with my presentation, my first goal, reaching the Copa del Rey final and qualifying for the Europa League," added Odegaard. "The time has come to say our goodbyes but right here you have a Real Sociedad fan forever." The club also paid tribute to Odegaard, who made 36 appearances in all competitions, scoring seven goals. "It's difficult to make such a big impression in such a short space of time but Martin has done that," said a message on the club's website. "He leaves us to return to Real Madrid but we'll never forget everything he has done for us in this unforgettable season."

  15. Are you applying for an opening as a Phuket tourism marketing consultant?
  16. I was there a few weeks ago and the food court is still busy. Also Big C Extra Klang food court is busy
  17. Thanks for the update. I know Thai have used EVA from London, I saw a video of a flight on the Thai Embassy London Facebook page. Videos on check in, arrival at Bangkok. Actually quite informative which surprised me.
  18. Thank you for your interesting discourse. Much of what you say has merit. But only some of what you say in the last paragraph will come true, IF the community is willing to stand by and allow it to occur. One big one is the move to a cashless society. A gross intrusion into our everyday lives. Already where I live, people are avoiding cash 'as it it dirty and spreads disease'. OMG and people are buying this cr ap. If cash disappears governments can exact control of everyone's lives and snoop at will. But I do disagree with you on the point that a vaccine for CO-19 won't change much. Because many countries are locking down communities - folk are like constrained animals, wanting to get out and about. And rebellion is mounting. As for jobs - people at large want normality - and once a vaccine happens normality will ensue - it must happen. Sure there will be other viruses - but more lock downs?? don't think so. Unless it's very serious like the bubonic plague. Just look at Italy for example - they were the worst in terms of infections and deaths per day. Severe lock downs were imposed - now there are opening borders. Look at USA. Still they have 1000 people dying daily - Why ?? because they are rebellious and will not observe strict lock downs.
  19. Rather the EU were in us making our laws and governing us with non-elected bureaucrats Also the UK were unable to trade with other global nations whilst a member of the EU under EU agreements / restrictions . The UK will continue to deal with the EU even if the trade talks fail bu using WTO . What trade deals has the UK done so far? Below an extract from a BBC web page , no mystical s , just facts While it was an EU member, the UK was automatically part of around 40 trade deals which the EU had struck with more than 70 countries. So far, 19 of these existing deals, covering 50 countries or territories, have been rolled over. This represents just over 8% of total UK trade. All of the following agreements are expected to take effect at the end of the transition period, according to the Department for International Trade: The government says it is still in negotiation with a further 18 countries which have existing EU trade deals, including Canada and Mexico. In addition, the UK government is also holding trade talks with the US, Australia and New Zealand.
  20. The reason that no information is given, is that the developer and the authorities already knows that the application is going to interfere with public safety and privacy.
  21. Last-gasp PSG beat Atalanta to reach Champions League semis By Simon Evans Soccer Football - Champions League - Quarter Final - Atalanta v Paris St Germain - Estadio da Luz, Lisbon, Portugal - August 12, 2020 Paris St Germain's Marquinhos celebrates scoring their first goal with Kylian Mbappe and teammates, as play resumes behind closed doors following the outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) David Ramos/Pool via REUTERS LISBON (Reuters) - Paris St Germain staged a superb comeback by scoring two late goals to beat Atalanta 2-1 and book a spot in the Champions League semi-finals after a thrilling finish on Wednesday. Atalanta's superb display looked like dumping PSG out of the competition but Marquinhos levelled from close range in the final minute before Frenchman Kylian Mbappe set up fellow substitute Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting for a stoppage-time winner. With Mbappe starting on the bench after an ankle injury, the creative burden fell on Brazilian forward Neymar, and he blasted an early effort over with the goal at his mercy. Despite the gulf in finances between the clubs -- PSG spent more on Neymar and Mbappe than Atalanta had paid for players in total since 2001-02 -- the Italians led through Mario Pasalic who curled the ball home superbly in the 27th minute. But PSG's late show took Thomas Tuchel's side through to the last four as the weary Atalanta players slumped to the turf.

  22. Who has a "vested interest"? Property developers? Pattaya was always a <deleted> with a polluted sea in my experience on the ground but it had a thriving "nightlife" that brought a steady income to thousands of Thais. Since Purachai put a stake through the nightlife's heart it's been on a decline. Now, IMO Pattaya is still a <deleted> with a polluted sea and nothing to bring farangs. Any western tourist wishing to have a beach holiday is not going to Pattaya. The horde filled the gap for a while, but with no tourists hard reality has arrived. Pattaya just doesn't have anything worth it, IMO. Given the nightlife is never going to get back to where it was, Pattaya has to reinvent itself, and if the authorities could get the "Riviera of SEA" stars out of their eyes they could create a paradise for western expat retirees, but given the present <deleted> authorities that's not going to happen, IMO.
