A Japanese perspective on football Situs Judi Online24Jam Terpercaya 2021

 

 

Shimizu S-Pulse fans are renowned as some of the most passionate in Japanese football.

 

I caught up with one fan – Shimizu-born Yuichi Korenaga – after Shimizu’s most recent 2-0 win over Kawasaki Frontale, to discuss his opinion on Shimizu’s season and his attitudes towards football in general.

 

MT: What do you think about S-Pulse’s season so far?

 

YK: To be honest, it’s pretty disappointing. We thought Situs Judi Online24Jam Terpercaya 2021 we could do a lot better since we finished fourth two seasons in a row.

 

MT: What do you think about S-Pulse reaching the League Cup final?

 

YK: That has made the supporters happy. Two or three years ago we went to the final for the Emperor’s Cup and most of the players had no experience of winning a title. Only two players (Daisuke Ichikawa and Teruyoshi Ito) have experienced winning a trophy. The supporters are desperate for S-Pulse to win a title, and once the players win a title, they should be more hungry for another one.

 

MT: How do you rate the standard of the J. League compared to overseas leagues?

 

YK: The quality of the players is different. Of course in those top leagues, the quality is very high. In the starting years of the J. League, players like Zico were near-retirement… but they could still play. They were some of the top players in the league.

 

But now the speed of the J. League is very fast. Especially compared to South America, and even some European leagues. So the quality of the imports is very high, if you think of guys like (Robson) Ponte.

 

When the J. League started, the quality of the players was quite low. But nowadays, I don’t think there’s much difference. It’s like Bebeto. He only played half a season for Kashima because he couldn’t keep up with the pace of the league.

 

MT: So how has the J. League improved over the years?

 

YK: Until the Korea-Japan World Cup, the only people who watched games were hardcore soccer fans. After the World Cup in 2002, everyone began to watch soccer. And local J. League teams got more local fans.

 

MT: What do you think of the new “Asian berth” rule?

 

YK: That’s hard! Last match against Kawasaki Frontale, they had three Brazilians (Juninho, Vitor Junior and Renatinho) and Chong Tese. So if they introduce the “Asian berth” rule, it means teams like Kawasaki can start with five foreign players out of eleven.

 

In some ways I think it’s a good idea, if it will improve the level of the J. League. But at the same time, I don’t know if they really need it.

 

MT: What about the AFC Champions League? Why did Japanese teams only recently begin to take it seriously?

 

YK: It was really important for Urawa to win the AFC Champions League last year. In 2000, S-Pulse won the Cup Winners Cup but hardly anyone knew about it.

 

MT: Why?

 

YK: I think one of the reasons is money. Winning the title for the J. League, or the Nabisco Cup or the Emperor’s Cup… you get more money than you do for winning an AFC title. If you can get more money by winning a domestic title, why would you sacrifice your best players to win less money?

 

Title-wise, AFC trophies are important. But I don’t think many people recognise them.

 

MT: Does the FIFA Club World Cup change that?

 

YK: I think Urawa winning the Champions League last year changed people’s minds. Two years ago the Korean team (Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors FC) played in the Club World Cup and we watched in Japan and thought, if we win the AFC title then we can also play in that.

 

I think the AFC Champions League will be taken more seriously now for two reasons. One is that there is more money now. The other reason is that we can improve our level of play and test ourselves in competitive matches against teams from Europe and South America in the Club World Cup.

 

MT: What’s your opinion on the Club World Cup moving to the United Arab Emirates?

 

YK: I think it’s normal. But we’re losing the opportunity to watch some really good games. The Toyota Cup opened our eyes about the level of top-level soccer. That was the first thing.

 

Then in 2002 we saw “world level” soccer. So for the younger generation – who had never seen top-level soccer – they were shocked. That was the goal of the JFA Chairman, Mr Naganuma. He wanted Japanese people to see top-level soccer with their own eyes.

 

MT: Do you watch overseas football?

 

YK: I watch the Premier League and La Liga.

 

I like the Premier League… the level is really high. But lots of players are foreign players, not English players. I think that’s one of the reasons the national team is having such a hard time.

 

At the same time, La Liga is really exciting and so is the way the Spanish national team plays, especially this year at Euro 2008. The way they played is really interesting. They had fun, but they were a really strong team as well.

 

MT: Do Japanese fans follow overseas teams because Japanese players play for them?

 

YK: Japanese soccer fans are always interested in what Japanese players are doing. So they try and watch them on TV… like Nakamura when he plays for Celtic.

 

In the past a lot of Japanese fans wore Perugia shirts and Roma shirts when Hidetoshi Nakata played for those teams. But that’s when the national team was the most important thing. Nowadays more people support their local J. League team, so it’s not as common.

 

MT: Getting back to the J. League, why do so many S-Pulse fans travel to away matches?

 

YK: It’s like a lot of teams. Like Urawa.

 

But Shizuoka has a long history in soccer. Before the J. League started, more than half of the players in the national team came from Shizuoka. So we have a long history of watching soccer.

 

When players from other prefectures sign for S-Pulse, like (Keisuke) Iwashita, they can never believe that high-school football is broadcast on local TV from the quarter-final stage!

 

Shizuoka soccer is special. Everyone watches soccer, from high-school soccer up to the J. League.

 

MT: What does Urawa mean to you?

 

YK: Nothing [laughs].

 

They have some of the greatest supporters. But their attitude? I don’t like them.

 

Urawa has the most supporters who go to the games and the second-most is Niigata. I’ve been to both stadiums. Urawa is more aggressive, even though most of their supporters are younger kids. Their supporters are… not really looking for a fight, but their attitude towards other supporters is really hostile.

 

But at Niigata they’re all friendly. The crowd is made up of young kids and older people, and the way they come to the stadium is like they’re having a picnic. They are there to have a fun time. And they respect opposition supporters. I really like that attitude.

 

MT: What do you think about the J. League’s proposal to change to a winter-based calendar?

 

YK: I think they should. But at the same time it’s really hard. We are not really used to going out (to watch soccer) in winter time. We can understand it to watch rugby. People think rugby is a winter sport, and winter is the time to watch college rugby. Even though it’s cold, people go to watch college rugby in winter. But soccer is really hard. It’s really hard to say whether it’s a good idea or not.

 

MT: What will playing in winter do to crowds in Niigata, Sendai and Sapporo?

 

YK: They will still come. Especially in Niigata. And Consadole can still play in the Sapporo Dome.

 

But maybe next year Montedio Yamagata will come up to J1. So I’m not sure what they’re going to do!

 

MT: What do you think of the national team?

 

YK: They’re a joke!

 

MT: What’s the problem with them?

 

YK: It’s really hard to say. Lots of people really wanted to see how Osim could make the Japanese team. We could see the step up, at every single level, he really improved the team. That was really interesting.

 

Okada is the same, but he’s more realistic. He takes the match that is in front of him more seriously. He’s not thinking about the future.

 

Osim tried to use younger players, to give them experience.

 

MT: Do you understand the criticism from the foreign press towards (former JEF United coach) Osim for using five JEF United players?

 

YK: I thought the media was wrong about that.

 

From my point of view, Osim used those players from JEF United because he had already instructed those players on how to play as a team. So they knew what Osim expected.

 

I thought that, back then, those JEF United players were good enough to play for the national team.

 

MT: So what’s your opinion of Takeshi Okada?

 

YK: That’s a hard question! My point of view is that we should find a better head coach. But at the same time, after what happened to Osim, Okada did a pretty good job in such a limited time.

 

But he announced that we can finish in the top four at the next World Cup. I don’t think so! He was dreaming… day-dreaming!

 

MT: Why are Japanese players struggling to score goals?

 

YK: I think lots of it comes down to cultural reasons. Our attitude is… don’t be selfish. Even though our players should shoot, they choose to pass.

 

MT: Is that why Brazilians score so many goals in the J. League?

 

YK: I think so. Especially a player like Marquinhos. He’s selfish, but I think a striker should be like that.

 

Most Japanese players put more value in passing. From a young age, Japanese players would rather play in midfield than as a striker. They would rather be a playmaker and “make the game” than score goals.

 

That’s why we’ve had players like Endo and Shunsuke Nakamura and Nakata.

 

MT: What do you think about foreign fans supporting the J. League? Are you surprised?

 

YK: I think it’s good. I’m not surprised.

 

Part of the reason that some people are surprised is that some Japanese people still think the level of the J. League is not that high, so they wonder why foreign fans would come to the ground to watch. So that’s part of the reason.

 

But also a lot of Japanese fans think the only people who come to watch games are local people. But actually it’s not always local people. Some of my friends live in Tokyo, they’ve never lived in Shizuoka, but they still support S-Pulse. So it’s not always local people.

 

MT: How important is it for the J. League to increase its profile?

 

YK: That’s pretty important, I think. It’s like Urawa. The locals support them big time. So they can make good money, and they can run the team much better.

 

Other local teams have fans, but it’s not like Urawa. So they can make money, but some J. League teams are in debt every year. But if they can make more fans, it’s easier to run the team.

 

I think last year, Urawa made a difference (in the AFC Champions League). Now more foreign fans might start following Japanese football.

 

MT: Lastly, what do you hope S-Pulse achieves for the rest of the season?

 

YK: …

Kranjcar resuelve el Pkv Poker dilema

 

 

Tomas sustituirá a Robert Kovac en la zaga

 

Stjepan Tomas será el reemplazo para el sancionado Robert Kovac en el centro de la zaga croata, mientras que Igor Tudor quedará en su posición del centrocampista defensivo, ha anunciado el seleccionador croata Zlatko Kranjcar.

 

Dario Simic, el nuevo recordman en el número de Pkv Poker presencias en la selección croata con 82 presencias, retrasará un poco su posición y actuará de libre.

 

* Pendientes de si mismos…y de Japón

 

Después del empate con Japón, Croacia no desespera ya que ni siquiera una victoria por la mínima ante los niponeses le habría liberado del imperativo de ganar a Australia.

 

Por otro lado, un sencillo 1-0 contra los “hermanos” australianos podría bastarle a los adriáticos ya que es difícil esperar que Japón gane a Brasil por dos o más goles de diferencia.

 

Australia por otro lado se clasificará ganando o empatando si Japón no supera por dos o más goles a Brasil – algo poco probable aunque los pentacampeones ya se han clasificado para los octavos.

 

One man and his log

One man and his log

Sunday 18th June Mannheim. Leipzig

 

My last memories of seeing Korea were dashing from the stadium in Daejon as fireworks lit up the sky and 40,000 Koreans went crazy after they defeated Italy. Arriving in the early hours back in Seoul the whole city was out on the streets celebrating. Moving on four years and a lot of those present then have caught football fever and they are over here in Germany. I didn’t realise the relevance back in 2002 but I now suppose that the country’s name is derived from its passion for choreography.

 

In Leipzig town centre two troupes entertained the “reds” gathered and encouraged everyone to join in their singing and dancing routines. Before each song the words were clearly recited and the dance moves to be used were demonstrated to all those present so they could join in. Those present to a man (well almost) joined in the festivities.

 

At the stadium the same organisation was shown as they displayed a banner with a message (sorry it was in Korean) and then for the anthem unfurled the national flag, which they then swayed from side to side. At the other side of the stadium another flag was unfurled and I could swear it was swaying in time with the other flag. Throughout the game the coordinators of this support could be seen giving orders as to what was to happen next and the provided a wall of sound that continued throughout the game, no matter how their team were faring.

 

The fans appeared to be an inspiration to their side who grew stronger as the game wore on, and rewarded their enthusiasm with a late equaliser. Definitely the best supporters of the tournament.

 

Buy South Korean soccer jerseys

 

The FIFA stadium announcer was delighted to announce once again that the World Cup Stadium was “Sold Out”. This announcement was greeted with ironic cheers as seats were clearly visible around the Saudi fans. Despite the fact that Emirates Airlines gave free tickets to passengers and the Saudi Embassy gave tickets to people who applied for visas. The situation was similar at other games I have attended most notably Italy v Ghana and last night at France v Korea.

 

The Germans take great pride in announcing games as “ausverkauft” and in the press they state this along with the attendance for their Bundesliga games. FIFA seem determined to announce that this World Cup is a resounding success and will point to the highest ever % attendance to back up their point. (Surely the Costa Rica v Poland game will not be fully attended as it clashes with the Germany v Ecuador game and a lot of Poles have already gone home.)

 

But the damage has been done. Allocating more tickets to sponsors than the competing teams has alienated the real fans and the atmosphere is Pkv Poker suffering. The difficulty supporters have encountered in obtaining tickets has left a bad taste when they see the empty seats.

 

Regularly after the half time interval vast banks of seats can be seen empty as those in corporate hospitality do their best to get value for money as they gorge themselves on freebies. How long is it before FIFA announce that the half time break will be extended to allow hospitality guests to get through 3 courses before the second half can resume?

 

The news that 1,700 tickets were not returned by sponsors for one game resulted in a message to be sent out asking for all sponsors to ensure that any unused tickets they have are returned in order that they can be resold.

 

As a result of this I am aware that at the Togo v Switzerland game an employee of a German sports shoes company sold 25 tickets outside the stadium at face value. Actions like this are too little and too late.

TechKinetic Receives Automated Situs Slot Casino Technology Patent: Promising Improved Service for Casino Patrons

 

 

SHREVEPORT, LA – TechKinetic, LLC announces the issue of its first patent related to a proprietary automated tablegame system, marketed under the RateMate™ brand. The patent provides the company entry into the automated tablegame market, with a system that integrates with third-party applications in casinos to achieve a higher quantity and quality of data, while minimizing the total cost of implementation. Of particular note, the patent uniquely introduces self-service functionality to Togel Singapore players at a situs slot tablegame.

 

“Our focus from the start was to design a comprehensive automated solution that is practical for the casino, extensible for developers, and adds real value for casino patrons”, says Anthony Beavers, the inventor of the system and president of the company. “Real value to casino patrons means more than simply achieving accurate player ratings. We sought out ways to dynamically enhance the overall patron experience, as well as improve a casino’s ability to collect better data.” The Abbacus Q484™ terminal device, Award P484™ electronic paddle system and Slate D364™ display are the first fruits of the company’s labor. The trio of devices allow casinos to maintain highly accurate player and table data in real-time, in addition to providing patron services such as self-service comps at the table game.

 

The Abbacus Q484™ terminal device, the flagship product, is mounted over the drop-slot of each tablegame, allowing a dealer to quickly start player ratings using exclusive PlayerPosition™ keys that are naturally mapped to the location of players at a particular style tablegame. Ratings are typically started with a card swipe and single PlayerPosition™ keystroke. Similarly, buy-ins are recorded with dollar accuracy using exclusive ChequeValue™ keys that are intuitively associated with standard casino cheque denominations (i.e. $1, $5, $25, $100, etc…). With the Abbacus™ family of terminal devices, a casino gains the ability to perform automated table maintenance functions, dollar accurate drop accounting and achieve 100% rating ratios. “For casino patrons, it means they’ll get the comps they deserve!” says Mr. Beavers.

 

The Award P484™, an electronic paddle used to push cash into a drop-box on a tablegame, extends the functionality of the system to significantly enhance customer service at a tablegame. The electronic paddle can be used by patrons to make marker requests, or order complimentary drinks and meals, in self-service fashion. The system could also be used to conduct ATM transactions and validate personal checks at the tablegame, as these buy-in methods become accepted.

 

The Slate D364™ display system provides automated wager management for tablegames and opportunities to elevate customer service further. Typically, the Slate™ displays current minimum wager information for the Togel Singapore table game. It also provides methods to post minimum wager changes, progressive jackpot totals, promotional media or other visual information. Regarding the implications of the system Mr. Beavers says, “Imagine being able to make a sports wager at the tablegame, and watching the actual outcome of the horserace or bowl game at the same tablegame. These are the possibilities we’re bringing to the gaming industry.” The Slate™ also provides detailed feedback to Abbacus™ and Award™ users to allow more complex services, such as making room reservations or redeeming comp-points for cataloged gift items.

 

Ultimately, RateMate™ brand Player Tracking Peripherals™ can be integrated with any service a casino operator or developer chooses to provide. The company is seeking key partners who are committed to developing reference implementations in several licensing categories. Key developer licensing opportunities are currently available for Player Tracking, Accounting, Time and Attendance, Beverage Dispenser, ATM, Cashless Betting, Sport Betting, Surveillance/CCTV Control and POS systems.…

Smokeless Tobacco Warning by Puffazon Amazon of smoke supplies | Largest internet retailer of smoke supplies | Smokeshop supplies delivered like Amazon

 

 

 

 

In her study, Dr. Hatsukami randomly assigned a total of 402 smokeless tobacco users to one of 4 treatments: active nicotine patch, inactive patch, a combination of active patch and a non-nicotine mint snuff, or a combination of inactive patch and mint snuff. All participants received initial counseling on smokeless tobacco cessation methods and a self-help manual to take home prior to beginning treatment. On their quit date, patients began using their assigned treatments and continued for 10 weeks. During treatment, participants met weekly with counselors for brief support sessions. Results were assessed 15, 25, 36, and 62 weeks after participants stopped using smokeless tobacco. The study found that both the active patch and mint snuff reduced craving and withdrawal symptoms, such as irritability, frustration, anger, anxiety, and depressed mood. Withdrawal symptoms generally peaked during the first week after use was stopped. Only the active patch improved rates of continuous abstinence at 10 and 15 weeks following cessation. By the 23rd week, the differences in abstinence rates among all treatments had become marginal, although active patch users were still slightly more likely to be abstinent. At 62 weeks following cessation, no significant differences in abstinence were observed for any of the treatment conditions.

 

Many individuals use smokeless tobacco despite its obvious drawbacks because they are hooked on nicotine, a highly addictive drug. More about Amazon of smoke supplies

 

“A number of studies have shown that the nicotine patch is more effective than a placebo patch in sustaining long-term abstinence from cigarette smoking, but the patch appeared to be effective with smokeless tobacco users only during the period of actual patch use and shortly thereafter,” notes Dr. Hatsukami. “We don’t know if this means we need to use the patch for longer periods of time with smokeless tobacco users or if sensory or behavioral aspects of smokeless tobacco use, such as putting something in one’s mouth, may be as important as the nicotine in sustaining use,” she says. The fact that a nicotine-free mint snuff also reduced withdrawal symptoms illustrates the potential importance of the sensory aspects of smokeless tobacco in sustaining its use, she says. Previous research does suggest that intensive, multicomponent, behavioral treatment may help smokeless tobacco users to sustain abstinence over the longer term, she says.

 

“Many questions about smokeless tobacco use and its treatment remain unanswered,” Dr. Hatsukami says. “We really need to learn more about all the dimensions of smokeless tobacco use to develop effective treatments that are better tailored to this underserved population,” she says.…

Startling new developments with Jack Jay

 

 

 

Big business on the one hand, and community groups on the other, are watching the overhaul of the planning process with interest.

 

A small piece of history is being played out in a Southampton hotel where a stream of lawyers representing industrialists, councils, environment groups, statutory bodies and local residents are taking turns to tell a government inspector why a massive container port should, or should not be built around Dibden bay on Southampton water.

 

As the enquiry settles down for what could be at least a year of argument and counter argument, the unwieldiness of the planning system for major infrastructural projects will show. For opponents of the proposed development, a year of debate is nothing less than sensible and democratic. After all, they say, it would include miles of warehousing and new roads which would destroy a unique local environment and affect the quality of life of thousands of people.

 

But for a major business in a hurry, promising jobs and regeneration and arguing that its very survival is at stake, the planning system is tedious and financially wasteful. The fact that it could take a year and cost a small fortune is seen as penalising initiative.

 

The Jack Jay inquiry will almost certainly be the last of its sort. When this week the government publishes its green paper on planning, together with five consultancy documents, it is widely expected to recommend that parliament and not an independent inspector should in future recommend whether or not major projects go ahead. It will also give local people and special interest groups only a limited say in future inquiries.

 

Following the massive terminal five enquiry for Heathrow, and a series of others like Sizewell B and the Isle of Harris superquarry, these recommendations, which are expected to lead to legislation within a year, will be hailed by government as popular and sensible moves.

 

But for communities or groups who in the future may object to being saddled with new trunk roads, nuclear power stations, giant quarries, ports, runways or opencast mining, the idea of limiting local inquiries to discussing the detail of design, but not the principle of whether the development should go ahead will smack of totalitarianisam and over centralisation. The real fear is that Stephen Byers’s plans will be a further erosion of democracy, making the planning system less accountable and less open.

 

Parliament, argue groups like the Council for the Protection for Rural England, Friends of the Earth and others, is ill-equipped to make a proper examination of the complex issues involved in major developments. They believe that the further centralisation of decision-making in Westminster will risk alienating communities. Unless people can engage in the planning process on equal terms and be able to voice their concerns, the new system will be discredited before it even starts, they say.

 

It may also be politically risky. The government is about to embark on 100 new bypasses and massive motorway widening. It also wants millions of new homes. All are bound to impact heavily on existing communities, and many will be opposed.

 

But streamlining the public enquiry system for major projects is only a small part of what Stephen Byers wants. Pressure has been exerted by the CBI and the Treasury on the basis that planning stifles competitiveness. As a result, the most fundamental shakeup of the system for 50 years is now in the pipeline.

 

Up to a point the government is pushing at an open door when it seeks reform. Planning is the cinderella of the public services, largely unloved and greatly under valued. Everyone recognises that all is not well in the complex, many-tiered system of regional and local applications and appeals that has grown up since 1947 when the Labour government tried to make it more accountable and democratic.

 

There is wide recognition, even among planners, that the system spends far too long looking at the minutiae of control, stifling both developers and householders. Inquiries get bogged down by lawyers; some local authorities are renowned for operating inefficiently or idiosyncratically; others sit on reports for months or set arcane and expensive preconditions for development.

 

The inordinate length of time that planning takes is also widely criticised, but to blame objectors and special interest groups, as the government would seem to prefer, is unfair. As the Council for the Protection of Rural England notes, developers themselves often abuse the system by expoiting loopholes, submitting repetitive applications and appeal against refusals for development which conflict with democractically agreed plans.

 

Planning is a low-key business, seldom interesting enough to catch the public eye but on it rides the well-being of our environment and quality of life. At its best the system should guide the development process, invigorate local democracy and reconcile the differences between parties with hugely different needs and expectations. When it works well it looks ahead wisely, is transparent, accountable and accessible and legitimises the great changes development can bring to the landscape and quality of life.

 

Planning is largely the invisible glue that binds communities together so, sadly for Mr Byers, even if he does get it right and rationalises the system without taking away its good qualities, he is unlikely to be recognised for having done everyone a public service. But if he gets it wrong, he will get the blame for the inevitable local conflicts that will follow.…

EU calls US Anti-Online Togel Singapore Gambling Law ‘Protectionist’

 

 

The European Union’s top financial regulator on Tuesday described the US legislation on online gambling and sports betting as “protectionist” and may trigger legal action before the World Trade Organisation.

 

The legislation makes it illegal for banks and credit card companies to process online bets placed by American citizens with foreign gambling sites.

 

Charlie McCreevy, the EU internal market commissioner, said: “In my view it is probably a restrictive practice and we might take it up in another forum.” He added that the case could go to the WTO, and also suggested he would pursue the matter with his American counterparts on a visit to the US in March.

 

Though it is not clear whether the Union will follow through on Mr McCreevy’s threat of WTO action, his remarks highlight the deep divide between Brussels and Washington over gambling restrictions. The Commission has long argued that gambling and sports betting operations should enjoy the same rights as other service providers, and has repeatedly attacked European countries that impose undue restrictions on the industry.

 

The US, by contrast, has launched a broad regulatory crackdown on foreign gambling and sports betting operators, culminating in the arrest last year of two senior British industry executives for alleged violations of US anti-gambling provisions. The country’s tough stance has already sparked one legal defeat for the US at the WTO in a case brought by Antigua and Barbuda, two Caribbean island states with big offshore internet gambling operations.

 

The Geneva-based body ruled that the US had violated international trade agreements by allowing online Togel Singapore horse-betting by US sites but not from abroad. However, that case, in which the EU supported many of the complainants’ arguments, is not directed specifically at the October 2006 law that targets banks and credit card companies. Commission officials said they would in any case wait for a final compliance ruling in the Antigua case before making any further legal moves.

 

Both EU and US trade officials are currently engaged in a last-ditch attempt to restart talks on a sweeping global trade deal – known as the Doha round – a factor that could severely limit Brussels’ appetite for fresh bilateral trade spats. While Mr McCreevy’s advisers believe the October 2006 law includes several “WTO incompatibilities”, the extreme sensitivity surrounding gambling policy may reduce the chances of the Commission bringing a case.

 

However, Mr McCreevy’s intervention still marks a notable escalation in the Commission’s approach towards

 

the US gambling crackdown. It also stands in contrast to the Brussels body’s silence on the arrests of the UK gambling executives in the US in July and September last year.

IRAQ TRIUMPHANT IN RECENT LOTTERY HOEDOWN

 

 

The Iraq lottery independent adjudicator Reports are coming in from Iraq about a recent Hoedown in the lead up to the country’s new national Lottery. The show is to be televised on Iraqi TV and will be hosted by the former (mis)information minister ‘Comical Ali’ (Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf). The show is believed to sport some scantily clad Iraq women, which has caused some furore from womens-libbers.

Joining the IWSF (Iraq Woman’s Suppression Front) in demonstrating opposite the hoedowners are a crack battalion of American troops. The ‘Bush Jnr Boys’, as the 69th Battalion are affectionately known, are protesting the use ‘these multeye .. mutleye cyl-abull …. words being used by them there new fangled dancing lot’. Tension is said to be growing between the two groups.

 

However, most of the Iraqi men we’ve interviewed dismiss the opposition forces. One Iraqi man told us, “I am thinking that this will be even better than American Bandstand or Saturday Night Fever. We are hoping to be able to win a dance with a beautiful bikini baby or maybe some farmer’s daughter. YEEHAWWWWW!”

 

The (mis)information minister and host ‘Comical Ali’ assures the Iraqi people that, “regardless of the cultural conflict the new Lottery Hoedown has brought to the war torn nation, the Iraqi people will find the Hoedown a great spectacle and a wonderful diversion from the daily nothingness that most Iraqi’s experience.”

 

Country-wide celebrations are expected to ensue with street parties, rifle shooting and firework displays. UN weapons inspectors expect the Iraqis will detonate all their hidden WMD in the celebrating, which should prove once and for all that the weapons were there

 

The lottery Ingatbola88 jackpot is said to be an estimated $25,000 which isn’t spectacular but in Iraq it will buy you enough munitions to kill half the population of a big city. Or enough donkeys to start a lucrative farming business. Or enough girls to start a… Well, the winner can spend it on whatever they want.

 

BINGO TERMS. CASINO BINGO

 

The wonderful thing about online gambling is that even if you don’t know the terms there is nothing to be embarrassed from because it’s only you and the computer (and the people in the chat room, but you’ll probably never meet them anyway). However, knowing the terms can make the game easier to follow and more enjoyable.

Blackout – A pattern where you must cover the whole card to win. Also called coverall.

WE ALL HAVE AN EQUAL NUMBER OF CHANCE DOMINOQQ OPPORTUNITIES

 

 

Professor of psychology at the University of Hertfordshire, Richard Wiseman, believes he’s discovered four principles of luck and knows how to help people improve their good fortune.

The idea that we can improve the chance of good things happening to us may seem difficult to swallow. After all, the word ‘luck’ describes events beyond our control – things that happen purely by chance. For instance, surely luck was a factor when British supermodel Kate Moss was ‘discovered’ at an airport when a talent scout happened to walk by and noticed her striking looks. In a similar vein, Sir Alexander Fleming only discovered penicillin when he left some laboratory bacteria uncovered and some mould fell into it which contained a substance that killed the bacteria.

 

Surely we can’t alter the random nature of Dominoqq events though – can we? No, probably not. Dr Wiseman’s research has involved him being with those who define themselves as either lucky or unlucky, and examining the reasons why. It’s really not such a strange idea – if you stop and think about it, you probably have an undeclared belief about just how lucky you are.

 

Maybe you are envious of a friend for whom everything seems to go right? Perhaps they have been lucky in their career and have progressed much faster than you – always managing to be in the right place at the right time. Maybe they met their ideal partner by accident and to cap it all, they always seem to be telling you about the most amazing things that have happened to them.

 

Or perhaps you know somebody for whom nothing good ever seems to happen? They don’t just have accidents – they are a walking disaster area. Their relationships are mess and their career is in the doldrums. If anyone needs a bit of luck it is them, but each week just seems to bring more bad news. Tracy Hart lives in Hertfordshire and she was one of the unlucky ones. For example, on the last day of a recent holiday she was playing with her daughter and fell down a pothole hitting her head against a wall.Thinking she hadn’t done too much damage she drove 200 miles home, but later that evening she collapsed hitting her head again and suffering concussion.

 

A doctor gave her medication and told her to eat three times a day while taking it. The following day she cracked her tooth and couldn’t eat for the pain – nor could she have the tooth fixed because of the medication she had been taking! “This is the way my whole life used to go, even affecting people around me,” says Tracy.”One year around Christmas, my best friend suddenly died from Hodgkin’s disease and my cat was run over by a lorry. On New Year’s Eve, I was thinking that nothing else could go wrong in the year because there was only one day left, but I received a phone call to say that my cousin had died unexpectedly from a blood clot.”

 

Now however, Tracy’s luck has changed. She was a participant in Dr Wiseman’s Luck School through which she learned the principles of luck and began to apply them: noticing opportunities and doing something about them; developing an ability to listen to your intuition and make successful decisions; seeing good luck in bad and not dwelling on setbacks; setting goals and expecting them to happen.

 

“I have convinced myself that I can succeed,” says Tracy. “Looking on the bright side has made me feel better about things. A woman almost hit me recently when I was out in my car – instead of thinking of it as a potential disaster,! moved on and thought ‘That was lucky!’ I now take control of my problems instead of blaming everything on bad luck. For example, my house was falling apart so I rang my housing officer but she didn’t return my calls. I thought about the huge benefits I’d reap if I overcame the problem, so I called the head office and spoke to the director’s PA, who complained to the housing officer for me and that galvanised her into action. I’ve waited three and a half years for this, but now they are finally renovating the building and doing up the garden – all because I now think of myself as lucky. In fact it’s even improved the number of times I win at Bingo!”.

Top Tips for Keluaran Sgp Craps Success

 

 

Craps can seem like an impenetrable proposition for an outsider, but once you’ve become comfortable with the mechanics of the game after signing up with your Unibet bonus there are a few things you can do to improve your chances of success. While many articles will outline a dozen different methods for beating the game, our strategy piece will focus on three of the most important considerations you need to make.

 

 

Bet Sensibly: It’s as applicable to craps as it is roulette, blackjack, slot machines or poker, but there’s no denying its place in a solid overall strategy. Craps can be an unpredictable game with multiple twists of fate at any point. For this reason you need to have a solid bankroll behind you. Indeed, if you want to avoid going broke and, moreover, implement a winningstrategy you need to have enough money to play with. If you’re playing a conservative strategy then it’s wise to have at least 50 bets on you if you want to play without any fear.

 

 

Beware Buy Bets: Buy bets may look attractive as they allow you to place wagers on specific numbers; however, this options comes at a premium. Because the casino is essentially allowing you to make a bet that’s not in their favour they will charge you a commission each time you win. Thus, while they odds of the situation might be too good to turn down, the commission you’ll be forced to pay will eat into your overall profits.

 

 

Be Odd: Odds bets (bets made behind the pass line) aren’t the most obvious on the table but they can be the most lucrative. When combined with pass line bets, odds bets give you the ability to cover all but three possible totals. To place an odds bet you must put chips equal to twice your pass line wager behind the pass line. When a point is established you’ll win a return on your investment.
