Is there any space available to complete the construction of the stadium, wrap the Cusack to the Hogan  and making it an all seater?

Staircase is fine but it's not entertainment, there is no climax last episode, it's procedural and a tad biased towards the husband's innocence. It was very unfortunate for the husband's that it came to pass that his first wife died in a similar manner. What are the odds of that happening?

spoiler alert, much?
Not much if any, much less  a spoiler than saying Perry Mason got his client off or Apollo 13 did make it back or watch out for HAL.
 
The documentary is 15 years old and the story goes through many twists and turns after the timeline of the info I revealed.
Imo it's very good but it has to be disclosed that the documentary makers are  firmly in bed with the defense.
There was a shabbily made BBC podcast which firmly jumped into bed with the prosecution.

the specific detail you revealed was the biggest twist/reveal/wow moment in the entire series! It doesn't matter how old it is. This is a recommendations thread. Recommendations for people who haven't seen the feckin thing!
The event in  episode 3  was a "wow moment", but was far from the biggest "wow moment" in the 13 episodes.  Those  big "wow moments" came immediately afterwards and in the following episodes.  And in no way could anyone figure out how the documentary or prosecution strategy/case was going to transpire by knowing one event from ep 3.
spoiler alert -   little.  --   hysteria alert  - much.

I read that the lawyer for the woman who is being or likely to be charged with some offenses relating to the attempted coup (stealing  Nancy's laptop?) is blaming Trump for the riot and said in court that she "took the president's bait.
The USA's great republican patriots are quick to run for cover and squeal on their great leader Trump in order to save their own skin.

It was a good trick but he didn't stick it out with Donegal and he could have achieved much with that exceptional bunch of players he helped to mould. There is no way he stands alongside managers like Harte or Boylan, at least not yet

https://www.thenational.scot/news/19029336.boris-johnson-no-comment-biden-removing-churchill-bust-despite-obama-attack/

In 2016, commenting in the Sun newspaper on Obama’s decision to remove the bust of the wartime prime minister, Johnson highlighted how it may be viewed as "a snub to Britain”.

He added: “Some said it was a symbol of the part-Kenyan president’s ancestral dislike of the British empire – of which Churchill had been such a fervent defender.”


Johnson was later asked if he regretted the phrasing of his comments, to which he replied: “Of course not.”

LOL

And that is a “racist diatribe”?
Of course  it was, in common with Trump's persistent lie about Obama's origins pandering to the Birther conspiracy theories about Obama  held and propounded by racists. How else would Bullsh*t Johnson be aware about Obama's particulars. Unlike Trump, Johnson disguised his ridiculous racist sneer behind a veil of his attempt at light humour.

Biden's first act in the oval office was to remove the bust of Churchill  ;D
Interesting that pm Bullsh*t Johnson wasn't at all perturbed when informed, in stark contrast to the racist tirade he directed against Obama  when he had moved it aside after his entry to the Oval office.

It was a Livingston reserve team last night as they rested 7 or 8 guys for the weekend.

Lennon coming out saying we're not "in crisis" or "a shambles".

He really is out of touch with reality.  He's an arrogant lad, that's for sure.

Where is the Jan. review that was promised?

I wonder, in hindsight, would Lennon have walked in Oct?  His reputation is in tatters and he'll hardly get a job in football after all this.

He'll hardly get a gig on tv either you'd think as he's found out to be clueless tactically etc. 

I would to hear from current players what happens at training and behind the scenes etc.  We'll not hear, but in a year or two, it'd be interesting to see what the set up was behind the scenes.

Big results of the review to come out in the next week or so just in time for the transfer window to close.

As befitting the tone of the season of denial and shame, the review comes out to close the stable door after the horses have bolted.

I also found this further down the page in this SERP.


"Norway says no direct link between Pfizer COVID vaccine and 33 elderly deaths

There is no evidence of a “direct cause” between the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine and the deaths of multiple elderly people in Norway, health officials have reportedly said.

On Friday, the Norwegian Medicines Agency (NOMA) issued a statement saying that "common adverse reactions may have contributed to a severe course in elderly people who are frail".

Amid reports that a total of 33 people aged over 75 had died after being given a jab, NOMA played down safety concerns on Monday and said it was not “alarmed”.

It also said that claims by Pfizer/BioNTech that Norway had changed its advice to consider excluding the terminally ill from receiving the vaccine were incorrect.
https://uk.news.yahoo.com/norway-coronavirus-vaccine-deaths-latest-203705535.html


"NOMA’s investigation of 13 of the deaths found that common adverse reactions to mRNA vaccines, including fever, nausea and diarrhoea, could have contributed to death in some frail patients,"

In other words the vaccine did not kill them but the known ill effects of the vaccine did ::)

If they say the vaccine killed them, then the Norwegian state is liable and more questions are asked and probably more reluctance to take up the vaccine.
The vaccine is always blameless. They apparently can get away with that as it was the known side effects.
But the known side effects are just too much for certain people 

NOMA then deny they are making judgements as to who might be too frail to receive the vaccine but then they state
Doctors are still giving out doses in Norway but “extra evaluation of very sick people” with underlying conditions that could be worsened by a bad reaction should be carried out. 

“The Norwegian government will also consider adjusting their vaccination instructions to take the patients’ health into more consideration."

So the vaccines dont kill the very frail, it's just the side effect of the vaccine that does the killing. And they have not changed their advice re administration of the vaccine but will consider adjusting their vaccination instructions to take the patients’ health into more consideration  ;D

George Osbourne the Conservative ex MP now chief editor of the London Standard claims that   Ni is heading toward a united ireland and the English wont care one jot.

He said that by “unleashing” English nationalism, Brexit has made the future of the UK the central political issue of the coming decade.
Northern Ireland is “heading for the exit door” from the UK
The Northern Ireland Protocol means the country follows the EU’s rules on matters like animal product standards.
“By remaining in the EU single market, it is for all economic intents and purposes now slowly becoming part of a united Ireland,” wrote Mr Osborne.
“Its prosperity now depends on its relationship with Dublin (and Brussels), not London. The politics will follow.
“Northern Irish unionists always feared the mainland was not sufficiently committed to their cause.
“Now their short-sighted support for Brexit (and unbelievably stupid decision to torpedo Theresa May’s deal that avoided separate Irish arrangements) has made those fears a reality.

“It pains me to report that most here and abroad will not care.”

received two vintage books on Ireland for Christmas from mrs rather than the usual crap
I a 2 century history of Ireland written in 1888 which is fascinating as written when Ireland still in empire
2 the rising 1916 written in 1918 which again shows me how it was perceived then rather than the glorification now.

always good to look at history from different timelines because the interpretation is so different
With most big history events it's wise to read different accounts
 But if someone asks me to recommend one book about 1916  then it's  Rebels  -  Peter de Rosa

Poet Amanda Gorman,  yet another good irish family name.

Imagine where the American Irish would be now in the US, had the average age of life in the 19C  for the irish immigrant after arrival, been longer than 6 years.
