  1. I switched games. Watching Belgium-Czech Rep. No reason to waste one's life watching the 'sorry show'..
  2. Most memorable for this gift to the world. R.I.P Mikis.
  3. Another one of the good guys has left us. Maybe St. Peter has a rock band going and needed a drummer... So long Charlie.
  4. Also, two factor authentication using handlers for Google Authenticator and Security Questions is now available to select user groups. (premium members, moderators) Two Factor Authentication allows members of the community to secure their accounts using an additional layer of security in addition to their normal username and password. Users will not be presented with any two factor options unless at least one of these handlers is enabled. Those with access will find two-factor authentication under their account settings - Security & Privacy:
  5. For security purposes the way a user logs in has changed. A user is required to log in with their email address - not their user name as it was until now. Allowing users to log in with a display name can represent a security weakness for our community because display names are public information and malicious users may attempt to login to multiple accounts with common passwords until they find an account for which the passwords work.
  6. ‘The greatest striker’: Gerd Müller, legendary German forward, dies aged 75. (The Guardian) The forward scored 68 goals in 62 appearances for West Germany, including the winning goal in the 1974 World Cup final against Holland. Thank you Gerd for all you did for the sport May his soul rest in peace.
  7. Nice and unexpected (based on their showing) win for PAOK.
  8. Yep! No skill, no imagination. Just plain old sterile. Oh well. It is what it is...
  9. A good gesture by the U.S. Army Europe and Africa Band & Chorus. To commemorate 200 Years Greek Independence Day, members of the Soldiers’ Chorus perform the Greek folk song “Dance of Zalongo.”
  10. For argument's sake, if they were successful in ''having a go at him'', would and should they stop there? If so why? Shouldn't their 'courtesy' extend to all those that meet their 'courtesy requirements', which is 90% of those that oppose them ideologically? Also, I am assuming that you agree with 17 November ideologically since you endorse a hypothetical event. But endorsing the actions of 'someone else' is puzzling, especially since you set forth no conditions as long as they achieve the desired outcome. In this case: as long as somebody has a go at Dick Cheney, you wouldn't and couldn't care at all what they stand and why they did it. Does that sound about right? Or maybe I just totally misunderstood your statement. (It happens sometimes) Yes, people need to understand this distinction. Murder is a murder is a murder no matter how you coat it.
  11. I don't know why anybody would celebrate with what they saw today. Yes, Greece did get a tie, but they are a pitiful team. Nothing to like, nothing to root for. Greece needs a LOT of work just to start resembling a competent team. Εθνική Κωλοπετινίτσας would be the right term to assess this performance.
  12. President Joe Biden faced tough questions during his first solo press conferences about the surge of migrants on the US-Mexico border.
  13. The filibuster has no place in a modern representative democracy. It's an archaic process in the US Senate and has been overly abused by both parties over the years. For those that don't know what 'filibuster' is (our members outside the US), here's a link: Wikipedia. Elections have consequences and the winning party has to govern according to the wish of the people that elected them. That's what having a majority is about. 50%+ 1 gives one the majority. The minority should have a voice and present it for discussion and consideration. Bipartisanship is achieved by two parties cooperating - the winning party sets the tone of discussion in the particular branch of government. The minority party brings up its arguments and own proposals for discussion and to make the public aware of where it stands. One party refusing to participate in governing - with the sole goal of accusing the other party of failing in legislating - is not what legislating and bipartisanship is about. Although it it what it has become. Which makes it the appropriate to change, the appropriate time to move forward. The Democratic party will have to live with the consequences of doing away with the filibuster if and when the Republican party gains majority in the Senate.
