I'd fancy either Colombia  to beat England tbh. Poland maybe, if they get their act together after the last day.

Why stop at splitting Dublin. In my opinion we should just have each club in Dublin enter the county championship seperately

Are you in favour of doing the same with Mayo?

Canít understand the narrative that Iceland deserved a point. They just packed the defence and hacked it out all second half. At least Argentina tried to play the right way, passed it around and created what few chances there were.

Can't understand the idea that they didn't deserve the point.  They executed their game plan almost perfectly and denied Argentina the space to cause much damage.  An exceptionally well organized defense, and decent enough on the break.  Well worth their point, and I hope not to have to watch them again.

They gave away two clear penalties, one called and one ignored. Hard to say they deserved the result in that context.
And the keeper saved the one that was called. That's part of deserving it.

I have an immigration client whose 23 month old baby was taken from her. The government can't (or won't) tell us where he's being kept, or who is caring for him. What the hell does the government want with a toddler, other than to terrorize. #WhereAreTheChildren

There are few worse crimes than selling children into slavery, especially sex slavery. Along with many others lost. The ICE and Border patrol individuals responsible for this, along with those who enabled them through this monstrous policy, should be given life in prison

Good thread on this subject.

Decided against watching that game because I thought GD was the tiebreaker; didn't realize it was head to head.

Seeing as the moderators have gone all authoritarian. I'll put my comment another way. The greatest weapon Israel posses is not the nukes at the Dimona plant but United states congress.

Yeah, that's not what you said at all though, is it?
What was said?

That the US was owned by "international jewery"

What's wrong with what he said? Thats exactly who owns the US. One only needs to look at the banks etc. They are a horrible religion of people, who wholeheartedly support the annexation that has taken place in Palestine. I'm far from an anti-Semite, but I'll call a spade as I see it. What's going on at the minute is a world joke.

Look at the banks...

Care to elaborate on that?!

The old "I'm not an anti Semite but look at all the Jews owning and running the banks" line. f**king embarrassing stuff.

What's embarassing is the way their shameful treatment of the Palestinan people and how the world let's them away with it....more embarassing is their big noses

Mods?

No difference in mentioning this stereotype and the Sinn Fein/ IRA analogy, the Paddy Jackson trial or the 8th Amendment. Worse and less true material has featured prominently on them threads.
Worth noting that not all Jews support what the Israeli government are doing and in fact plenty take to the streets to protest/burn the Star of David etc to demonstrate their disgust.

Agreed.  At pretty much every Pro-Palestinian march I've been to or seen photos of, there are orthodox Jews present, holding posters to the effect that the Talmud itself forbids a Jewish state/homeland.  I can't speak to the accuracy of that claim, but they're always there.

Sacramento police arrested the East Area Rapist/Original Night Stalker serial killer last week. He raped 50 women and killed at least 13 people between 1974-1986.

Iíd just watched a documentary series about the crimes (Unmasking a Killer, very average and if youíre interested Iíd recommend the Criminology podcast season on the case as itís far better) and afterwards Googled the case to see that heíd been arrested the day before. Surreal. Probably the most infamous unidentifed American serial killer outside of the Zodiac.
I would say a lot of these chaps will be having sleepless nights now that they see a lot of these cold cases being cleared up. He was nailed on the basis of DNA samples used for genealogy.

Read a magazine article about this a few weeks ago. An amateur called Michele McNamara spent 5 years going through the evidence and wrote a book. Sadly she died before this breakthrough. I couldn't believe it when I read about the arrest last week. Coincidence or what?! Maybe her book prompted something.

The fact that the arrested was a serving cop at the time is 'disappointing'.

They did a big case relaunch and established a new taskforce for the 40th anniversary of the first EAR attacks in 2016, which is what led to this arrest. Itís crazy to think DNA analysis has came so far in 30 years.

I do wonder what the legalities of genology sites sharing usersí DNA with police without a warrant is, though. Iím sure weíll hear much more about that in the years ahead and maybe even as a defense tactic in this case. They had absolutely no evidence to point to him otherwise so it all hinged on the genology website. It benefited society in this case but just like accessing peoplesí phones or social media data thereís a massive privacy concern.

From what I have understood of the investigation, it was a reitred policeman who was linking the DNA profile to the geneology site.
It only linked him to a family member so the investigation ramped up from there and they obtained his DNA and matched it directly.



my wife just semt away one of those DNA kits recently , results not back yet,
I winder will it be sold to DNA databases all round the world facebook style,
is it all a scam .
should I buy a tinfoil hat

Not sure anyone here is taking Fisk's word without question.  I posted a link to the article because it is by a reputable journalist calling into question the line that has been given in the media about gas attacks, and thus deserves attention.  And because he, like the British military people I also linked, cannot be dismissed as a crank, conspiracy theorist or Russian puppet.

Regarding the gas attack, if that's what it was, the U.N. has claimed that both sides in Syria have used chemical weapons.  http://foreignpolicy.com/2016/08/24/u-n-claims-syrian-regime-and-islamic-state-used-chemical-weapons/. So if there was indeed a gas attack, it is hardly a huge leap to wonder whether the rebels rather than Assad's forces were behind it.

And in any event, to bomb Syria before examining evidence regarding what happened, well, that's back in "but Saddam has WMD, we know this" territory.

Stupidity from Buffon getting himself sent off. Ronaldo probably still would have scored but it's a hell of a bigger task with the imposing Buffon in goal.

We've all played enough and seen enough sport over the years to know that the referees not going to change his mind. Don't know why players continue to protest with referees.

I saw it happen in a serie A match a few years ago. Google referee changed his mind, you'll see there are a few cases of it happening. I'd link it myself,  but it's a pain on the phone.

Actually, Russia has been accused of tampering.  From allegedly hacking into the DNC, to allegedly hacking into computerized ballot counting in several states.

The DNC thing was the initial basis for the Muller probe.

Putinbots abound, but that's just propaganda.  If that's the sole basis for the allegations of interfering in elections, that's pretty weak stuff. All of the states that would be regarded as major powers do this in their own way.
