If the ref views this as a direct free kick offence, which I believe a push is, then he should blow his whistle for a foul and the result is a penalty. If he deems it an indirect free kick offence. Obstruction? Then it is an indirect free kick at the closest point on the field of play - on the byline. It should be treated like any other foul with regards to issuing a yellow card if the offence deserved it.

I watched the first two Alien films recently. Never seen them before because I just assumed they were like the later ones which I thought were quite average. Man. They were both amazing, so much claustrophobic tension and each by a different legendary director.

well I am sure he is in no hurry to leave with his three year jail sentence in Serbia waiting for him. This has gone quite absurd now. Like a ripple effect from when you tell one lie.

He is just cringe. (as my 14 year old cousin would say)

Oh and he believes that he can change the molecular structure of water with his emotions.



Yoou wont be old enough but he must be the Uri Geller of the tennis world. Reasonable to think him oddball I guess

Oh I am old enough. I think I remember everyone had to touch an orange spot on the TV to help England win Euro 96. Or maybe I just made that up?!

After reading a lot about this I am still confused as to whether if you are not vaccinated but have a recent Covid infection you are allowed to enter Australia.

A few things do not make sense.

As far as I am aware the deadline to apply for the medical exemption from Tennis Australia was on 10 December, but Djokovic claims he had Covid on 16 December. This timeline doesn't match up. What did his application say, the application that was approved? It couldn't have said he had Covid in the past six months because at that point he didn't. So he got an excemption for something else?

Secondly, as has been pointed out by many, the fact he had Covid on 16 December but was out and about on the 17th and 18th.

There is also this bizarre idea that I have that Djokovic was out and about trying to get Covid so he could get the exemption, rather than getting a vax.

I think the Aussie government just has to take the L now and move on. Hope he gets booed out of the stadium.

Well done to the winners! Gutted to miss out on the trophy. I thought it was destiny in the Yahoo league for me to meet Tal in the final, but Ironside pipped me in the semi.

As I ran so well with injuries for most of the season, I guess that could have been my best chance to win, but I guess we will see next season. I'm just glad that my frequent trade offers for Antonio Brown were rebuffed by Forth. Phew.

well that didn't go well.

Was a great card though!

I have a couple of UFC bets tonight on the undercard. Picking a couple of fights to go the distance. Should be a fantastic main event, really looking forward to it.

Tuivasa vs Sakai - to go the distance 7/4
https://www.oddschecker.com/ufc-mma/augusto-sakai-v-tai-tuivasa/will-fight-go-the-distance

Tuivasa came into the UFC fighting light a maniac and achieved some spectacular results. Eventually his lack of any tactics whatsoever caught up with him and he took a few losses when he got towards the top ranked guys Still think he has a lot of potential in a weakish heavyweight division. He has had a couple of easier fights to rebuild and now he gets a step up in class again.

Sakai is a pretty boring heavyweight yet he is ranked 11. He has a definite lack of power, but fights at a fast pace and is a good all round if unspectacular fighter. He is pretty good basically but I don't think he will get many finishes. He also works in an aquarium shop part time.

I'm banking on a new found maturity from Tuivasa and for this to turn into an ugly affair with Sakai dominating the wrestling and Tuivasa winning the striking. Of course Tuivasa could get the flash KO, but I like these odds

Anders vs Muniz - Anders by decision 9/2 BF or PP
https://www.oddschecker.com/ufc-mma/andre-muniz-v-eryk-anders/method-of-victory
I was looking for an underdog bet and I like this one. Muniz is 3-0 in the UFC but his first fight showed his stamina issues. Since then he got two quick first round subs. Impressive wins but this is the type of profile of fighter I am looking to bet against. Interestingly Anders has never been submitted in 20 fights. A former linebacker and a very strong well built physique, a slow paced fighter. He could be tough to take down and smart enough to earn the decision.

I am banking on Anders most of Muniz takedown attempts and then taking over the fight when Muniz suspect cardio strikes. Maybe Muniz wins the first but Anders wins the last two. I like 9/2 on that outcome.

I guess they just decided chat was a net negative. Just have to deal with all the abuse and ban people and they don't get any money from it. But yeah, just makes it more anonymous and make me want to play live poker again instead!

You could be right as there actually thousands of them. But I'm asking you about Bitcoin specifically because I think that is the most established and stable crypto. If you think Bitcoin is a pyramid scheme, then I think I am not smart enough or know enough about it to change your mind and I'm sure you'll continue to have a great life without it.

Basically my point is that if you are an individual or a company who regularly exchanges money over national borders or deal in lots of different countries  and currencies then it makes sense to think about having some of your financial assets held in Bitcoin and see how open your trading partners are open to it. You should at least investigate this rather than dismissing it outright.

No way should anyone go all in and have all of their assets in crypto, let alone in just one crypto. In the same way that a company probably shouldn't have all their exposure in one FIAT currency or one national economy. Diversification is key. Because one country could experience an ecomonic crash or a 'black swan' event and a FIAT currency could also experience a big drop.

Clearly Bitcoin is more volatile than the dollar or the pound and is different from a FIAT currency. So unless you are trying to time the market then you are going to have to deal with the swings. Obviously some people prefer the stability of dealing with pounds, dollars or euros and that's fine. That's what you are paying your fees to banks and currency exchange brokers for - stability and piece of mind. Established financial institutions have monetised these feelings very well.

As an aside, a theme that has developed from a few posters seems to be that because crypto doesn't have any relevance in their everyday life right now it should just be described as useless or called a scam,pyramid or ponzi. I just think that is very closed minded and short termist. Many young people are living more of their life online and since the pandemic and lot more older people are too. With that in mind there is no reason why digital art through NFTs and crytocurrency shouldn't thrive or be as succesful as FIAT currency or physical art.

Personally I don't trust the state and the government very much, so I think having some decentralised assets is a good thing as a protection and hedge against the world going completely tits up and the global economy collapsing.

Bitcoin is not the same as the 200th ranked coin in the crypto rankings on Coinmarketcap. In the same way - shares in Apple are not the same as a penny stock or the US Dollar is not the same as Argentinian Peso.

You shouldn't use a broad brush to lump all crypto in together. Some cryptocurrencies will fail. Some companies will go bankrupt. Some FIAT currencies will devalue.

Bitcoin is established now, like it or not. It has provenance. Large financial institutions are getting involved and dipping their toe in. It is being legitimized.




.... If you want to change pounds to dollars, you can shop around but you are going to lose a few % everytime you change it. Perhaps not a big deal for a few trips to the Rhino in Vegas, but if you are a business then this kind of thing adds up.
...

But - unless all your suppliers are using BTC then at some point you need to convert BTC to $ (or £'s or whatever)

If you did that on the 21st Jan 21 you'd get about $22,500 per BTC
But if you did it on the 21st Feb 21, you'd get nearer $41,000
on the 21st May you'd get $26,000
and on the 21st June you'd be down to closer to $22,500 again

All the upswings are good for profit - but how could any reasonable company cope with that volatility?

Surely the few % lost from standard banking transactions is going to work out less in the long term than the massive chunk that could be lost from BTC suddenly halving in value just as you need to get FIAT currency to pay a supplier?
