Arsenal 2 Liverpool 1

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said his side “have to learn” after the champions’ hopes of setting a new Premier League points record ended as they suffered only their third defeat of a stellar campaign at Arsenal. Jurgen Klopp’s side – who will receive the trophy after the game with Chelsea at Anfield next week – needed to win all of their remaining games to eclipse the tally of 100 points set by then champions Manchester City two seasons ago. And they looked on course when Sadio Mane gave Liverpool a fully deserved lead after 20 minutes as he slid home Andrew Robertson’s cross.

Arsenal were then allowed back into the game before the interval after uncharacteristic errors by two of Liverpool’s most reliable performers, Alexandre Lacazette taking advantage of a dreadful back-pass by Virgil van Dijk to equalise before goalkeeper Alisson’s poor clearance gave Reiss Nelson the opportunity to score with a composed finish. The second half was almost an exercise in attack against defence as Liverpool laid siege to Arsenal’s goal but Mikel Arteta’s side showed real resilience and determination to close out the win and receive a real morale boost before this weekend’s FA Cup semi-final against Manchester City at Wembley.

Arsenal’s defensive frailties have continued to plague their latest manager, Arteta, and they were demonstrated again in the north London derby defeat at Tottenham on Sunday. Here, however, Arsenal dug deep to survive a second-half siege from Liverpool in which they existed almost entirely in their own half. Liverpool had almost all the possession but Arsenal’s much-criticised rearguard remained organised and put their bodies on the line in desperation to preserve the lead given to them by the generosity of the champions.

When Liverpool did get through they found Arsenal goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez in commanding form once more. He has been a real revelation since stepping in for the injured Bernd Leno and was excellent again here, dominating his area and also producing a fine save from Mohamed Salah in the second half. This was not an artistic Arsenal performance but Arteta will have been delighted with the sheer industry and resilience on show, especially as they face another team who will want to dominate possession as they prepare to confront Manchester City at Wembley on Saturday to battle for a place in the FA Cup final.

5 Way To Get Arrested In Finland

Buying alcohol after 9PM

Finland has a strong alcohol culture and Finns love their beer and vodka. However, in an effort to reduce public drunkenness, cut healthcare costs, and prevent deaths, the government has put heavy restrictions on the hours in which alcohol can be sold in stores. These hours are from 9AM to 9PM – after this, the only way to purchase alcohol is at a licensed bar or restaurant.

Selling spirits

It isn’t only buying alcohol that is heavily restricted in Finland. Selling it can get you in trouble too. Anything stronger than beer or lager cannot be legally sold anywhere outside of government-run Alko stores (again with the exception of bars, clubs, and restaurants).

Not flying the flag on flag days

Most of us would consider showing national pride to be optional. However, in Finland all public buildings are required by law to fly the Finnish flag on official flag days. These aren’t just public holidays but also those related to politics, such as election and inauguration days, and other special dates, such as the day of Finnish culture, on February 28, and Marshal Mannerheim’s birthday on June 4.

Playing music in a taxi

If on a long taxi ride you ask the driver to put on a CD to pass the time, you could be landing them in hot water. If a Finnish taxi driver plays any music in their car for a paying customer, then they must pay royalties to the musician. Best take your MP3 player and a pair of headphones next time.

Not paying the Candy Tax

The government has also tried to reduce dental expenses by encouraging parents to only give their children candy once a week. They have also introduced a ‘candy tax’ on any goods containing sugar, but the definition can be strange. For instance, bottled water is taxed under this law while cookies are not.

RIP Grant Imahara

Actor Grant Masaru Imahara (October 23, 1970 – July 13, 2020) was an American electrical engineer, roboticist, and television host. He was best known for his work on the television series MythBusters, on which he designed and built numerous robots and specialized in operating computers and electronics to test myths. Prior to his television career, Imahara worked at Lucasfilm in the THX division as an engineer and in the Industrial Light and Magic division in visual effects.

Imahara also appeared on the television show BattleBots, for which he designed and competed with his robot Deadblow and later returned as a judge. Imahara starred in the 2016 Netflix series White Rabbit Project alongside his MythBusters co-stars Kari Byron and Tory Belleci.

One of Imahara’s independent projects, during early 2010, was constructing a robotic sidekick for Craig Ferguson, host of The Late Late Show. The robot, named Geoff Peterson, was unveiled on the April 5, 2010 Late Late Show episode and is controlled and voiced by comedian and voice actor Josh Robert Thompson.

Imahara portrayed Hikaru Sulu in all 11 episodes of the web series Star Trek Continues. This the only project of his that I have seen and I think that he did a fine job. He also played Lt. Masaru in the 2015 fan movie Star Trek Renegades. In 2014, Imahara appeared in a series of videos showing the behind the scenes process of how several McDonald’s foods are made. In 2015, he appeared in the TV movie Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! In December 2016, Imahara became engaged to his long-time girlfriend, costume designer Jennifer Newman. Imahara died on July 13, 2020, at the age of 49 as a result of a brain aneurysm.

How to Stay Informed During Confusing Times

Right now, there’s so much going on the world and so much to stay up to date with. And knowing what’s true and what’s not has never been harder. So how are we meant to stay properly and fully informed during confusing and chaotic times? It’s something that you can become easily overwhelmed by if you’re not careful. But we’ve got some tips for how you might approach this challenge and ultimately get it right, so read on to find out more.

Find Time in Your Adapted Schedule

With ongoing world events causing us all stress, it’s important to settle into routines, even if they’re new routines. Covid-19 has changed things for a lot of us, but finding a new schedule and staying safe at the same time will at least help you stay balanced and keep things consistent. You can then find time within that routine for reading the news and following what’s going on in the world.

Debate and Converse

There’s nothing wrong with debating and conversing with people on topics of the day. It’s a healthy way to understand new perspectives and to see what those around you think. Talking to people who have opposing views and opinions can be enlightening, even if you don’t necessarily accept their point of view or change your own views at all.

Be Willing to Accept That You’ve Got Things Wrong

Sometimes, you get it wrong; we all do. Being willing to accept that you get things wrong and that you’re going to make mistakes sometimes is part of learning. If you’re going to be properly informed and get to the truth of every matter, you first need to accept that you are going to get things wrong in life from time to time. It’s part of being human.

Research From a Variety of Sources

When you’re trying to understand a topic or research it in more depth, you should get your information from a variety of different, often opposed sources. That way you can form your own opinions and views based on everything you read. There are all kinds of sources out there from daily blogs on current events from the world’s biggest news conglomerates to this information on Debt to Success System reviews CDC Covid-19 lies and other niche offerings.

Devote Yourself to Continual Enquiry and Questioning

If you’re going to live your life as a fully informed individual, you first need to adopt a mentality of enquiry and questioning. You do have to question things and be willing to dig deeper in order to find the truth sometimes. So devote yourself to living life in the spirit of enquiry and always wanting to find out more.

The world is a hectic and crazy place right now, and you’re going to need to work hard to stay informed and keep yourself in the loop. And it’s also more important than ever before you consider how you’re informing yourself and which sources are the right ones to trust.

Dash Cams Might Help Protect Employees After An Accident

Car accidents are the worst. They seemingly pop out of nowhere and the damage can be critical. Accidents typically happen because of really thoughtless mistake that happens too fast to capture for future references when disputing a car accident with the insurance company or in court. Some businesses have turned to dashboard-mounted cameras to not only protect their employees from accidents but to keep them accountable.

Some come with many different functions like a dash cam with GPS tracking. Others only record video and no audio. They have some with a single lens to multiple lenses that allow for front and rear recording at the same time and easily attach to your dashboard using a suction cup mount, similar to the ones used to mount your smartphone. Some cams are powered by battery, hardwired into your car’s 12-volt system or even by a cigarette lighter. Whatever the functions, here are some things to consider when assessing whether or not a dashcam might be a great addition to your business vehicles.

Dash Cams Will Not Make Your Employees Eligible For Insurance Discounts

Insurance companies have not yet figured out how they can use dash cams to determine if the installation will lower their claims costs. They use things like driving history to decide if you are a safe driver. As of right now, the insurance company’s argument is that dashcams are not designed to prevent a car crash but rather they document how a crash happened and why. Dashcams can encourage safe driving behaviors.

You May Have Help With Insurance Claims Or Court

Though dash cams cannot get you a discount, they can still help when it comes to filing an insurance claim. Some companies will allow you to send them the dashcam footage when it comes to a dispute about who is at fault and who is not. The dashcam footage can be used as evidence when proving guilt or innocence. There is a caveat to this though. You may send in your dashcam footage, but there is no guarantee that your insurance company will actually take a look at it. Some of the most popular car insurance companies do not have an official policy regarding dashcam footage and whether or not they will look at it. Also, some companies consider the footage in the same category of photos taken after the accident. Ultimately, it is up to the insurance company whether or not they think it might be useful to review the dashcam footage.

You Are Within Your Rights To Use A Dash Cam

As long as you are not infringing on other’s privacy, you are within your rights to use a dashcam. That mostly applies to the video aspect of your dashcam footage. Dashcams are a smart addition to business vehicles. Train your employees for best practices. If you have one of the dash cams that also records sound and your business requires passengers, it is best to let passengers know at the start of the trip so they are aware that they are being recorded.

7 Ways to Avoid Work-from-Home Scams

Due to the events of this year, many people are left in a situation of uncertainty workwise. The coronavirus pandemic has brought many businesses to a halt and an inevitable economic recession. This means that many people are looking for work.

Whereas there are plenty of legitimate ways to make money from home, there are also a number of scams around, offering a too-good-to-be-true scenario of making an easy salary from your laptop. These often involve fraudulent companies offering courses or jobs in exchange for a small fee. If you’re looking to work from home, here are seven ways to avoid these scams.

Recognizing a scam

Learn how to see a pattern forming regarding these scams. You’ll notice that there will be certain key signs that show which offers are legitimate or not. If you feel like you’ve been affected in any way by these scams or a consumer issue, firms like Sadaka could help you with a class-action lawsuit, as others with undoubtedly have been wronged as well.

If it seems too good to be true…

If it seems too good to be true, then it probably is. Be wary of scams promising high earnings from minimal effort. In the real world, this wouldn’t exactly be viable, so if you see an ad like this it’s more likely to be fraudulent. Unfortunately, if the opportunity sounds like a dream come true then there must be a catch. Evaluate the situation from the company’s perspective, how could they be making so much money if they’re paying their employees a high salary for little work?

Keep a clear head

Keep a clear head and don’t let your emotions take control. If you’re looking for a new job, there are plenty of available top tips to get back into the world of work. Think rationally and don’t let scammers play on your emotions. Often scams will use manipulative language, for example, boosting your confidence saying you “deserve” this offer. Unfortunately, this is a common marketing trick used to appeal to people’s emotions.

Do your research

The internet is a great resource. Look up the company on Google and social media. Read reviews and price comparisons. You’ll soon be able to see if they’re legitimate by doing your research. You could even search the company name alongside scam or fraud. This way you’ll find out if anybody else has reported them in the past.

Be aware of themes

There are often common types of scams you can look out for. These include data entry, pyramid marketing, and envelope stuffing. Again, these all appear as jobs that almost anyone could do from home, but that’s the trick. If you discover more online scams you could do your bit and publish lists online. This would help bring them into the light for other people.

Avoid search engine ads and email links

Scams often pop up in the form of search engine ads or ads on other websites. Never click on these ads, instead, research the company first. If the ad is legitimate then you should be able to find plenty of back up information from more reliable sources.

Email links are very common, especially if you’ve already been looking for work. Your data will have been picked up by cookies somewhere along the line and your email address would have been added to a mailing list. If you get any unsolicited job offers in your emails, assume that the majority of these will be scams.

Don’t pay for work

Many recent scams have also been asking for an up-front fee. If you think about it, this is very unusual. Don’t pay for a job offer or a training course with the promise of a successful career at the end, especially if it’s unsolicited. Sometimes scams ask for start-up costs for their business and promise that with your investment, you’ll be a shareholder. If you suspect that you or somebody you know has been scammed, report it immediately. This is especially important if you’ve given out any personal information or made any sort of payment. Report it to your bank, and the authorities.

Of course, there are plenty of legitimate job offers out there are resources to find them. These include national board job sites that screen and verify any work-from-home opportunities. If in doubt, go to the company’s website and look for signs of a scam. If you keep your wits about you, you’ll be able to find a safe and reliable job opportunity.

RIP Kelly Preston

Actress & former model Kelly Preston has passed away at the age of 57. The actress, who most recently appeared opposite husband John Travolta in ‘Gotti,’ had been battling breast cancer for two years. Preston died Sunday after a two-year battle with breast cancer, Travolta wrote on Instagram. The news of her breast cancer battle came as a surprise to many. Her rep acknowledged in a statement to People that she had chosen to keep her diagnosis private. In addition to 1996’s Jerry Maguire, Preston’s credits also included 1986’s SpaceCamp, 1988’s Twins, 1998’s Jack Frost, 1999’s For Love of the Game and 2003’s View From the Top and The Cat in the Hat. She starred opposite Travolta in 2000’s Battlefield Earth. Her most recent screen credit was 2018’s Gotti, in which she played Victoria Gotti, the wife of mob boss John Gotti (Travolta).

Kelly Kamalelehua Smith was born in Honolulu, Hawaii. While living in Australia, Preston was discovered at 16 by a fashion photographer who helped her get work in commercials and other small parts. He arranged her first film audition for the role of Emmeline in The Blue Lagoon (1980), which she lost to the younger Brooke Shields. Her first prominent film roles came in 1985—first as Marilyn McCauley in romantic comedy teen flick Mischief; then as the beautiful but shallow Deborah Ann Fimple in another teen romantic comedy, Secret Admirer. Other notable roles included SpaceCamp (1986), Twins (1988 ) with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito, Avery Bishop in Jerry Maguire (1996) with Tom Cruise, Jane Aubrey in For Love of the Game with Kevin Costner and Kate Newell in Holy Man (1998 ) with Eddie Murphy and Jeff Goldblum. In 1997, she starred in Nothing to Lose, which co-starred Tim Robbins and Martin Lawrence, although Lawrence and Preston did not receive screen credit. She also starred in the movie Jack Frost (1998 ).

Preston played the girlfriend of her husband John Travolta’s character “Terl” in the 2000 film Battlefield Earth, and received “Worst Supporting Actress” at the 21st Golden Raspberry Awards for her role in the film. In 2005, she appeared as the protagonist’s flying, superhero mother in the film Sky High. In 2004, Preston was in the Maroon 5 music video “She Will Be Loved”, which featured a love triangle and romantic scenes between Preston and Maroon 5 front man Adam Levine. In 2007, Preston appeared in the crime thriller Death Sentence, in which she played Helen Hume, the wife of Kevin Bacon’s character Nick. In 2008, she was cast in a television pilot called Suburban Shootout, and had a short term recurring role in Medium. In 2008, Preston starred in the Lifetime television film The Tenth Circle, directed by Peter Markle. It was shot in Nova Scotia and featured Ron Eldard, Britt Robertson, Michael Riley, Jamie Johnston and Geordie Brown.

Preston was married to actor Kevin Gage from 1985 until their divorce in 1987. She also had a relationship with George Clooney. She was briefly engaged to Charlie Sheen in 1990, but ended the relationship shortly after he allegedly shot her in the arm. Preston first met John Travolta in 1987 while filming The Experts. They married in 1991, traveling to Paris on an Air France Concorde for a wedding ceremony at the Hotel de Crillon (on the Place de la Concorde) on September 5, 1991. However, a second ceremony was required because the first, performed by a French Scientology minister (both Preston and Travolta are Scientologists), was considered invalid. The second ceremony took place on September 12 in Daytona Beach, Florida. Preston and Travolta have had three children: son Jett (April 13, 1992 – January 2, 2009), daughter Ella Bleu (born 2000), and a second son, Benjamin (born 2010).

Tottenham Hotspurs 2 Arsenal 1

Toby Alderweireld’s late header gave Tottenham victory in a tightly-contested north London derby. There was an eerie atmosphere behind closed doors in the vast Tottenham Hotspur Stadium but this was still a fiercely-competitive derby in the traditions of this great rivalry as Spurs and Arsenal battle for a place in Europe next season. Arsenal took the lead after 16 minutes when Alexandre Lacazette’s rising drive flashed past Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris but Jose Mourinho’s side were level within three minutes when Son Heung-min took advantage of slack defending by Sead Kolasinac and David Luiz to score with a deft chip.

Both sides had chances to force victory with Ben Davies denied when his 30-yard drive was brilliantly turned on to the bar by Arsenal keeper Emiliano Martinez in the first half while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang also struck the frame of the goal after the break. Arsenal had the greater share of possession but it was Spurs who struck decisively nine minutes from time when Alderweireld glanced in Son’s corner, securing a win that leaves them in eighth place, two points ahead of the Gunners.

There was much to admire about Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal here but the bottom line is they were undone once more by old failings which their manager will be desperate to cure. Arsenal were positive, energetic and dangerous, moving the ball quickly and looking to create chances for a potent strike pair of Lacazette and Aubameyang. And yet it was the defensive frailties that characterise their play that allowed Spurs through the door and to the win.

Encino Man

Encino Man (known as California Man in Europe, Asia and New Zealand) is a 1992 American comedy film directed by Les Mayfield in his directorial debut, and starring Brendan Fraser, Sean Astin and Pauly Shore. The plot revolves around two geeky teenagers from Encino, Los Angeles, California, played by Astin and Shore, who discover a caveman in Morgan’s backyard frozen in a block of ice. The caveman, played by Fraser, has to learn to live in the 20th century. Along the way, he teaches them about life. During the first ice age, a caveman attempts to make fire with his girlfriend. An earthquake causes a cave-in that buries the two of them.

This segues into a present day Los Angeles earthquake that awakens average teenager Dave Morgan. He, along with his best friend Stoney, strives to attain popularity in high school but comes off more like a reject and an outcast. Dave is in love with Robyn Sweeney, a sweet and attractive girl who had been his best friend during grade school, and until she reached adolescence, had been rejected by Dave on several occasions. Her boyfriend, Matt Wilson, is a stereotypical jock and school bully, who is constantly responsible for making both Dave and Stoney the objects of ridicule by humiliating them in various ways, usually directly due to Dave’s growing affections toward Robyn. One day, as Dave is digging a pool in his backyard, he comes across a chunk of ice that has the body of a man in it following an earthquake.

They leave the ice block unattended in the garage and space heaters left on cause the ice to melt, releasing the caveman from the opening of the film. The caveman then encounters a garbage truck, which he misinterprets as a mammoth from his time and television which he discovers upon entering Dave’s house. When the boys return home, they find hand paint covering the walls and the house in disarray. Investigating a beeping smoke alarm, they discover the caveman in Dave’s bedroom, attempting to start a fire “Indian-style” by rotating a stick in the center of a pile of kindling. At first, the caveman panics at the sight of them but Stoney quickly calms him by using the flame of a lighter to mesmerize him. After bathing him and trimming him to look like an average teenager, Dave names him “Link” as in the missing link.

They manage to fool Dave’s family into thinking he is actually an Estonian exchange student sent to live with them, and enroll him in school where Link’s bizarre behavior and supreme athletic skills shoot Dave and Stoney to popularity by association, allowing Dave to get closer to Robyn, causing Matt’s anger and frustration. It soon becomes apparent that Stoney’s bizarre attitude is having an effect on Link’s actions and speech, which causes a rift between Dave and Stoney. Matt’s anger and frustration leads to a fight with Link at a skating rink and increases due to Robyn‘s growing attraction towards Link. During a school field trip to a natural history museum, Link gets upset realizing that the cavepeople he knew are all dead. Stoney and Dave console Link that he is not without friends in this time, causing the trio to make a pact. Dave tries to abandon Link, but a fight between Dave and Stoney causes Link to come running back and separate the friends. Stoney and Dave reconcile.

On prom night, Link is a hit at the party with Robyn as his date, while Dave stays in for the evening. Matt breaks into Dave’s bedroom and steals photographic evidence that Link is a caveman. As Dave and Stoney go after Matt and his friends, another earthquake happens. At the prom, Matt’s plan to uncover the “freak” backfires as the information instead makes Link even more popular. Dave and Robyn make up, and the three boys lead the entire prom in an impromptu caveman-like dance. After the prom, the students attend Dave’s house for a pool party where Dave and Robyn kiss. Meanwhile, Stoney and Link follow clues similar to when they found him ranging from breast prints on the slider and paint covering the walls. They follow the muddy footprints to the bathroom and discover a beautiful cavewoman in the bathtub who turns out to be Link’s girlfriend from the beginning of the film. He joins her in the bathtub as Stoney cheers them on and embraces her happily as she is also made to look like a modern human.

Fun and touching in some places. I loved this movie when I first watched it back in 1992 and still think it’s a fun and hilarious. Nostalgically it’s a 10/10 but I would give it an 8 outta 10!

8 More Weird Laws In Switzerland

You can’t recycle on Sundays

The Swiss love a good bit of recycling and they claim to be the best in the world at it – just not on Sundays. Just ask convicted felon Judith Schulte, a 35-year old German woman who committed the unforgivable crime of dropping off her recycling on the legally enforced day of rest. She was duly reported by one of her neighbours and offered a 250-franc fine or two-nights in jail.

You can’t cut your grass on Sundays

Look, you’re just going to make loads of noise and ruffle up some feathers, best just leave it until Monday. This is part of a much wider campaign against making “excessive noise”. The rules on this are pretty vague and vary canton by canton. The state of Geneva has a handy guide that illuminates some of the other things that are considered too noisy like taking a bath at night, or doing any kind of DIY. Just go to IKEA, okay?

Hanging out your laundry on Sunday

Just stay home, lock your doors (quietly), read a book and forget about leaving the house on Sunday. Closing your door could get you denounced, capiche?

You can’t hike naked

There’s nothing like the cool, refreshing feel of the fresh Alpine air on your nether regions. But you’ll have to pack it in when you’re in the tiny canton of Appenzell, a conservative stronghold in eastern Switzerland. After an influx of naked, supposedly German, hikers invaded their mountains, the local authorities fought back and fined one unlucky man in the buff, arguing it breached “decency customs”, setting a precedent to punish future naked ramblers. Fair enough.

You can’t ski while reciting poetry

Apparently this is forbidden, but exactly who is monitoring such an activity isn’t certain. Why would you want to do it anyway? We can only imagine how such a law came to pass.

You can’t use a high-pressure power hose on your car

Using a power hose to clean your car is “basically forbidden” in Switzerland, due to fears of polluting local water supplies and the wider environment, Reto Baumann, an environmental specialist, said in 2013. So you’ll have to make do with one of those incredibly eco-friendly drive-in washers.

Your weed can’t be too strong

Switzerland loves weed. Its government, not so much. But it does have some pretty liberal laws and decriminalised possession in 2012, replacing it with a fine system that is a little hazy. For instance, unlike most countries in Europe, permissible levels of THC (the part of weed that gets you high) are allowed up to 1 per cent (most of Europe generally cuts this off at below 0.2 per cent). If you are caught with weed the police can take it to be tested for its THC levels, if it comes back above 1 per cent you pay a fine and the cost of the drug test.

You must fear nuclear doom

Every house in Switzerland has to have, or have access to, a nuclear shelter. So if you want to build yourself a nice Swiss house, but don’t fear immediate annihilation at the hands of a nuclear strike, you might want to think twice about moving to Switzerland.

RIP Jack Charlton

John “Jack” Charlton OBE DL (8 May 1935 – 10 July 2020) died yesterday at the age of 85. He was an English footballer and manager who played as a defender. He was part of the England team that won the 1966 World Cup. He spent his entire club career with Leeds United from 1950 to 1973, helping the club to the Second Division title (1963–64), First Division title (1968–69), FA Cup (1972), League Cup (1968 ), Charity Shield (1969), Inter-Cities Fairs Cup (1968 and 1971), as well as one other promotion from the Second Division (1955–56) and five second-place finishes in the First Division, two FA Cup final defeats and one Inter-Cities Fairs Cup final defeat. His 629 league and 762 total competitive appearances are club records. He was the elder brother of former Manchester United forward Bobby Charlton, who was also a teammate in England’s World Cup final victory. In 2006, Leeds United supporters voted Charlton into the club’s greatest ever XI.

Called up to the England team days before his 30th birthday, Charlton went on to score six goals in 35 international games and to appear in two World Cups and one European Championship. He played in the World Cup final victory over West Germany in 1966, and also helped England to finish third in Euro 1968 and to win four British Home Championship tournaments. He was named FWA Footballer of the Year in 1967. After retiring as a player he worked as a manager, and led Middlesbrough to the Second Division title in 1973–74, winning the Manager of the Year award in his first season as a manager. He kept Boro as a stable top-flight club before he resigned in April 1977.

He took charge of Sheffield Wednesday in October 1977, and led the club to promotion out of the Third Division in 1979–80. He left the Owls in May 1983, and went on to serve Middlesbrough as caretaker-manager at the end of the 1983–84 season. He worked as Newcastle United manager for the 1984–85 season. He took charge of the Republic of Ireland national team in February 1986, and led them to their first ever World Cup in 1990, where they reached the quarter-finals. He also led the nation to successful qualification to Euro 1988 and the 1994 World Cup. He resigned in January 1996 and went into retirement. He was married to Pat Kemp and they had three children.

Work @Home Current Routine

I am a trainer. I conducted training for my office and for the process that I work for. The situation with the coronavirus means that I cannot conduct training at the office (training batches are usually 20-30 new hires) face to face. Like a lot of people I am currently working from home and have been since March 21st. So the way around it is to conduct online training. Currently I am conducting a training for 24 new hires who are in Hyderabad. And yes they are in the office there, wearing masks and doing social distancing.

So they log in to the work systems and then log into my person Webex meeting room (the company paid for the license) and I take them through the process training. It’s for 10 days and sometimes I also conduct the communication & foundational training as well which is also 10 days and done before the process training. For this batch we are working in the 8pm to 5 am shift.

I login around 6:30 pm and check my office emails and see if I have to reply to any of them. At 7pm I have a conference call which is a daily thing. It usually ends in 15 minutes so I still have time to get another cup of coffee before the trainees reach the office building and login into their systems and I greet them, take the attendance and then do a recap before starting the sessions for the day.

At 10 pm we take an hour long break for dinner and I also give them a 20 minute break for coffee twice (a break after every 2 hours). I say good night (or good morning as it should be) at 5 am and then send out a couple of reports before lying down on my bed and watching perhaps an episode of whatever show I am rewatching (currently it is Stargate Universe) before I fall asleep. I wake up at 1 pm and get a coffee and by 1:45 pm I eat my lunch and watch more tv. At 4 I get up and go online until 6pm.

5 Weird Laws In Switzerland

Ah, Switzerland. I have never heard a bad word about this country. With her natural beauty, peaceful co-existence, beautiful snow capped mountains. Do they have some weird laws? Let’s see:

You can’t ruin the life of your child with a ridiculous name

The Swiss are intent on forcing you to care about your child’s future and the authorities apparently have to approve baby names. Specifically, “you aren’t allowed to harm the child’s well-being or be offensive to a third party” with the name. So you aren’t allowed to brand your nice, shiny baby with a name like Prada or do a Kanye and dub your spawn like a compass direction. This one is probably for the best.

You can’t urinate standing up after 10pm

Strangely enough, this applies to men. Apparently, this heinous act causes too much noise and can disrupt other citizens during their allocated sleeping times. Gentlemen, take a seat.

You can’t flush the toilet after 10pm

This one is apparently at the discretion of landlords who are allowed free reign to set their own rules on many things. You probably won’t be chucked in a jail cell but you could get a stern telling off, and nobody likes that.

You have to pay a tax for your dog

That’s right, dogs are taxed in Switzerland. Some cantons charge a flat rate while others tax you according to the dog’s size and weight. In 2011, officials in the small town of Reconvilier dusted off a law from 1904 that said dogs could be killed if their owners didn’t pay the annual tax, but they saw the light after protests from across the country and abroad. Inhabitants still have to pay the tax, mind you. Thanks, Fluffy.

You must have a buddy for your pets

If you plan to bring your favourite fluffy friend to Switzerland, you might want to get it a playmate. In 2005, the Swiss passed a law to ensure that all “social animals” (Guinea pigs, goldfish and budgerigars are cited as examples) have the company of their own kind and aren’t kept in too small cages.
