  1. What Jersey it Is?

    It appears to be from 2009–2010 season (Puma and Citibank are sponsors). More details here: Olympiacos FC: Kit manufacturers and shirt sponsors
  2. Greece playing lackadaisical, no sense of urgency. They need to pick up the pace - Estonia don't handle high pressure game as good.
  3. The Video Assistant Referee (VAR) system becomes part of MLS officiating. FC Dallas thought they had clawed a goal back. Maxi Urruti reacted quickest to a loose ball in the box, and found the back of the net to give the Texans a lifeline against the Philadelphia Union. Replays showed that Cristian Colman made contact with Philadelphia goalkeeper John McCarthy before Urruti took his shot. Of course - like every new technology implementation - there will be challenges along the way. Personally, I think video replay was long overdue in soccer and that it will contribute to the sport in the US. How do you feel about it? For your viewing pleasure, this historic first follows...
  4. Some Light Hearted Videos

    Tough to say what's true and what is fake thesedays...
  5. I stumbled across this article on the Guardian: The future of fake news: don't believe everything you read, see or hear A new breed of video and audio manipulation tools allow for the creation of realistic looking news footage. This stuff is pretty scary. Soon, we won't be able to tell what is true and what is not. From the same article: Doctored content might not pass the scrutiny of a rigorous newsroom, but if posted as a grainy video to social media it could spread virally and trigger a public relations, political or diplomatic disaster. Imagine Trump declaring war on North Korea, for example.

    Update on performance for first six months of Trump administration from CNN: Trump's first six months in office: 991 tweets and 0 pieces of major legislation
  8. Trump Presidency

    Many of the bills Trump has signed, such as designating buildings and appointing board members to the Smithsonian, do not have a major, direct impact on Americans, and Trump's 'ambitious' legislative agenda on tax reform and infrastructure is largely stalled. The outlook is also uncertain for the Obamacare repeal bill, which passed the House and is tied up in the Senate. Here's a reference on CNN: President Trump has signed 40 bills into law. Here's what they do

  11. Trump Presidency

    Of course it is! Maybe not thrown by you, but by Trump himself. In Trump’s world, the only thing that matters is that the sound bytes are good — a deal, and one that he personally made, on behalf of the American people. Will the deal materialize? According to an industry observer, “Most of the time,” Anthony Cordesman of the Center for Strategic and International Studies said to McClatchy, the enormous worth of packages such as the Saudi deal “isn’t reached.” Will it create any jobs in the US? Nobody knows! Some of the deals are memorandums of understanding that would require further agreements to materialize. A spokesman for Raytheon, one of the companies that along with Lockheed Martin, Boeing and General Dynamics signed memorandums of understanding with Saudi Arabia as part of the deal, was unable to even speculate as to whether or how many jobs the arms package will add. This is what the White House statement reads like: "This package demonstrates the United States’ commitment to our partnership with Saudi Arabia, while also expanding opportunities for American companies in the region, potentially supporting tens of thousands of new jobs in the United States.” Notice the word 'potentially.' Sean Spicer took things a step further next day, saying that the deal would create “hundreds of thousands of jobs.” So, in a day we go from "tens of thousands" to "hundreds of thousands." Does this sound to you like a government that has evaluated real numbers? The Trump government is about distractions. "Look here, no look here! We're making America great again. Jobs, jobs, jobs. Money, money money." And there are a lot of gullible people that believe that these flashes and smoke bombs thrown by Trump is what governing is about. Trump is a danger to the US, Trump is a menace to the world.

    Have you tried switching to 'Source' when copying, then copy the HTML and post it in the new topic - again in 'Source' view as HTML. Then you can switch to WYSIWIG. ( By the way, just had to change your profile cover photo - I hope you like! )

    Can you point me to where I can get what you call " formatted information from my archives " so I can test? I need to be able to reproduce in order to see if there is a workaround. Thanks.
