President Donald Trump directly criticized Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit strategy, saying it had probably killed off hope of a U.S.-British trade deal and that she had failed to take his advice on how to negotiate with the European Union. In an interview published just hours before he was due to have lunch with May and tea with Queen Elizabeth on Friday, Trump chided the “very unfortunate” results of the prime minister’s Brexit negotiation. “If they do a deal like that, we would be dealing with the European Union instead of dealing with the U.K., so it will probably kill the deal,” Trump told the Rupert Murdoch-owned Sun newspaper. “I would have done it much differently,” he told The Sun, which urged its readers to back Brexit before a referendum in June 2016. “I actually told Theresa May how to do it, but she didn’t listen to me.” Trump also heaped praise on Boris Johnson, who resigned as foreign secretary this … [Read more...] about Trump says May’s Brexit plan kills hope of a US trade deal
Viet Nam News By Nguyễn Hằng The FIFA World Cup 2018 kicked a week ago in Russia, with hundreds millions of football fans across the world watching, including those Việt Nam. It really is a time to “eat football, sleep football and breathe football”. I have been a big fan of World Cup since 2002. When the tournament hits, one of my favourite activities is turning on TV and watching veteran commentators share their assessments before and after each match, especially matches between heavyweight opponents. But things have changed. I stopped watching this year after Việt Nam Television launched a new commenting programme with 32 hot girls – representing the 32 football teams of the World Cup, alongside veteran analysts. The nonsense comments from the beautiful women on VTV6 were too much for me. Cao Diệp Anh, a beautiful girl, who was born in 1995, analysed the match between Brazil and Switzerland and said she had watched Brazil play … [Read more...] about Make football TV programmes great again

Viet Nam News by Robert Bicknell Can changing clubs make a difference in your game as a professional? We read all the time that a well-known Tour pro decided to switch brands, mostly due to a ridiculous amount of money being waved in his/her face. What people do not realize is that many of these pros are not entirely stupid and usually demand that the company make a virtual copy of their old tried and true club, with minimal cosmetic or technical changes, and just a new brand stamped on it. What’s old is new… sort of. But occasionally, the manufacturer might demand the player accept the designs they currently have, modified a bit to meet the player’s requirements. This can be something as simple as weighting, or grinding the sole a bit differently than what is actually on the market. But, almost without exception, once the player has a brand new set of clubs in his brand new bag, his game usually goes completely to hell, at least for a short while. Having said … [Read more...] about Can changing clubs make a difference in your game?
