My ceiling is too far up, I can't see a thing. Could you re-do it for wall-looking?

The DUP
run the same model as the extreme right AfD in Germany

   "The secret of the AfD’s success is that it’s a coalition of both extreme and moderate forces,” said Wolfgang Schroeder, a political scientist at the Berlin Social Science Centre. “If Meuthen kicks out all the extremists, he’ll destroy this successful formula.”

https://www.irishtimes.com/sport/soccer/international/sporting-upsets-rossi-s-hat-trick-felt-to-us-like-the-day-that-football-died-1.4348837

Socrates, who died in 2011, said in his autobiography: “The team’s defeat in Barcelona was a crushing blow to the Brazilian style of play. From that moment on the emphasis changed to focus on results.
“The business side of the game grew frighteningly quickly and money was channelled to the winners, even if they were poor-quality winners. Brazilian football would never be the same again. Even though it is often subconscious, we now try and copy European pragmatism. With that, our game has become more rational and tactically more rigid and it has lost some of the identity.”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doubs_(river)

The Doubs is a 453-kilometre (281 mi) river in far eastern France which strays into western Switzerland. It is a left-bank tributary of the Saône.[1] It rises near Mouthe in the western Jura mountains, at 946 metres (3,104 ft) and its mouth is at Verdun-sur-le-Doubs, a village and commune in Saône-et-Loire at about 175 m (574 ft) above sea level. It is the tenth-longest river in France.
The name comes from the Celtic  word  Dub which means black.

History of names can be fascinating if you’re in to that kind of thing.

At one time Duibhlinn (black pool) and Ath Cliath (ford of the hurdles) were two separate but neighbouring settlements. So Dublin could easily have even up being anglicized as Duvlin, Blackpool or Hurdleford. But somehow it became Dublin and bizarrely Ath Cliath was picked as the Irish version, even though it’s absolutely not the Irish for Dublin!

There’s precedence then for splitting the county...have a team Ath Cliath and a team Duibhlinn....probably still win the all Ireland though!

I know that place. A few years ago this lad in an Arnotts jersey was paddling vigorously upstream. Puzzled, I asked him where he was going, and he just waved his paddle at me shouting “Up the Doubs” .

Huge Chinese rocket likely to have uncontrolled re-entry into Earth's atmosphere in the coming days

This will be an interesting one to follow.

China launched a module for its space station into orbit last week, but the mission launcher is heading back to Earth and is uncontrolled. China haven't said whether this was planned and they just don't care, or if there was some error.

The launcher is 30m long x 5m wide and weighs 21 metric tons. Almost impossible to predict how much and in how many fragments it will survive re-entry, but best guess is between 4 tonnes and 10 tonnes will survive. And then travel down to ground at about 350 km/h.

It orbits Earth every 90 minutes. Broadly, its orbit includes New York - Madrid - Beijing - Chile - Wellington. It's much more likely to hit sea or uninhabited areas, but the orbit is so fast, it's impossible to predict at this stage, so will be worth monitoring.
