When the government rejected a request from West Bromwich Albion to introduce a safe-standing section at The Hawthorns in April, it's unlikely they anticipated the response they received. More than 110,000 people signed a petition calling for the safe-standing rules to be relaxed, triggering a debate in Parliament scheduled for 25 June and now, according to reports, a review of the issue. It's time for MPs to understand the context of the debate and give it the energy it deserves. The football community is eager for change. Read more: Trevor Steven: Time for English football to allow safe standing Since 1989, standing in English football's top two divisions has been outlawed by the Football Spectators Act. Given the event that triggered such law – the Hillsborough disaster which claimed the lives of 96 Liverpool fans – the prohibition was regarded as the right move. Since then, the stance of successive governments has been largely unchanged, and in response to the recent … [Read more...] about Safe standing: Why the time is right for government to relax rules on all-seater stadia

By The Washington Post | May 5, 2018 at 5:44 pm In the nine years before he ran for president, Donald Trump’s company spent more than $400 million in cash on new properties – including 14 transactions paid for in full, without borrowing from banks – during a buying binge that defied real estate industry practices and Trump’s own history as the self-described “King of Debt.” Trump’s vast outlay of cash, tracked through public records and totaled publicly here for the first time, provides a new window into the president’s private company, which discloses few details about its finances. It shows that Trump had access to far more cash than previously known, despite his string of commercial bankruptcies and the Great Recession’s hammering of the real estate industry. Why did the “King of Debt,” as he has called himself in interviews, turn away from that strategy, defying the real estate wisdom that it’s unwise to … [Read more...] about As the ‘king of debt,’ Trump borrowed to build his empire. Then he began spending hundreds of millions in cash.
Why the 2003 Tigers are relevant again all these years later and set the precedent for modern team-building. by R.J. Anderson @r_j_anderson 3m ago • 15 min read Fifteen years ago, the Detroit Tigers played one of the worst seasons in baseball history.Winning five of their last six games spared the Tigers, who finished 43-119, the indignity of tying the 1962 New York Mets for the most losses since integration. Those Mets went 40-120 but had a legitimate excuse: they were an expansion team. The Tigers weren't, they just played like one. Anybody with an internet connection can list off morbid facts about the '03 Tigers: they started 0-9, then 1-17; they recorded only three more wins than blowout losses (40 by five-plus runs); they were outscored by nearly two runs per game; and so on. There's sufficient statistical humiliation for the quant masochists in the audience to savor.But those Tigers serve a purpose greater than their near-constant … [Read more...] about The 2003 Detroit Tigers, one of the worst MLB teams ever, provide rebuilding teams lessons to learn from 15 years later
Poultry breeding heats up again General manager CP Vietnam Montri Suwanposri said that Vietnam’s poultry prices are closer with prices of other countries; accordingly, CP Vietnam will sell chicken to Japan after finishing paper works as per the partners’ requirement. Montri Suwanposri added that C.P in Thailand is the leading firm exporting chicken meat to Japan for years with the quantity of five million a week. There has been an increase in poutry meat orders lately because many countries banned import chicken from Brazil , an exporter of chicken to Japan, after food safety scandal. These countries switched to import chicken meat from Asian countries especially Thailand. At present, prices of poultry in hi-tech farms in Vietnam is similar to chicken prices in other Asian countries, accordingly, C.P Thailand will share its orders with Vietnamese firms and C.P Vietnam has planned to sell chicken meat to Japan in 2019. In 2017, Vietnam’s livestock sector marked its … [Read more...] about BUSINESS IN BRIEF 16/4
Sep 27, 2017; St. Louis, MO, USA; Chicago Cubs center fielder Jon Jay (30) looks on from the dugout during the seventh inning against the St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium. Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports The Mariners were linked to Jon Jay back in November, and ESPN’s Buster Olney (subscription required) reports that Seattle had enough interest to offer Jay a three-year contract. The two sides didn’t reach an agreement, however, and Jay’s free agent sojourn only ended last week when he signed a one-year, $3MM deal with the Royals. It’s easy to second-guess Jay’s decision in hindsight, though of course he (like many other free agents) could hardly have expected the market freeze that left several players settling for contracts that fell well below their initial asking prices. The M’s ended up going in a more unorthodox direction to solve their center field problem, instead acquiring second baseman Dee Gordon from the … [Read more...] about AL West Notes: Jay, Beltre, Bush, Rangers, Peacock
Just days following the UK’s decision to leave the European Union last year, the Financial Times ran the ominous headline: “The UK has no trade negotiators”. After decades of being part of one big – for some, too big – club, the UK now found itself on the other side of the table, only this time without the negotiators. Cricket Australia, by contrast, appears to have many negotiators – enough, perhaps, even to lend a few. That CA are serious about the art of negotiating is at least what their latest bold move infers, that and they’ve got a well-staffed spin machine – less Shane Warne, more Lynton Crosby. Last month, CA announced that they had tabled an offer to the Australian Cricketers’ Association (ACA), to raise players’ guaranteed income in return for scrapping the fixed-revenue payment model. The announcement hardly got beyond the headlines – and was never intended to. The headlines made no mention of the main … [Read more...] about The art of the deal: Cricket Australia’s pitch perfect or aggressive declaration?
