He's looking out for the camera. Lesson learned there. 😉
Where those pics from a surveillance camera?
Yes, apparently it came from the leaked footage of a CCTV camera, presumably one in the room itself. The footage was then uploaded on YouTube by the British tabloid The Sun and made their front page headline the other day.
As you may have heard, Matt Hancock resigned earlier today as his position as Health Secretary had become untenable. He was replaced by former Chancellor of the Exchequer, Sajid Javid.
Earlier tonight when I visited Sajid Javid's page on Wikipedia I saw that someone had had a bit of fun with the editing feature on the site just before it was changed back again:
That's very good! 😁😁😁
The next second I looked it was gone again. Managed to get a screenshot of it before it disappeared! 😀
England 2-0 Germany.
Well done England! And well worth staying up into the early hours to watch it 🍻
I wish the best for members who are in places experiencing a dangerous heatwave. (there is a heatwave here too, but the temperature will stay under 30 degree celsius). Stay safe! I also urge everyone to update themselves on what the science says about climate change. 🤒
I want to reccomend the youtuber known as Lindybeige. He's a very British man who posts short videos on a number of subjects with an abundance of charm and enthusiasm. He's so enthusiastic some mistakes are bound to happen, but instead of reading from a script he corrects himself via texts in the videos. His short videos often has interesting and (for me) new perspective on different aspects of whatever he's talking about. Much of it is about warfare in ancient times up to WWII and sometimes the current age, but there are other topics such as travel in the middle ages. Because the videos usually are short and Lindybeige is funny and interesting I believe people who aren't normally interested in history will like his videos.
I don't know anything about computer games and I don't know where to put this so place it here in the hope that it might be of interest to games players.
Apparently some fans have made a new James Bond computer game.
Happy constitution day to all US citizens! 🇺🇲
It looks like I’m the only English football fan on AJB, but I don’t care 😁 well done lads, into the final on Sunday against Italy. My sleeping patterns have all gone haywire because of e time difference but it’s worth it!!!
Yeah, in days of old we'd have a football thread going but it's all fallen asleep here. Getting football withdrawal symptoms when it's not on.
Seriously, the chances England missed tonight... why can't they get more white shirts into the box? Who are they going to cross to?
I thought it was a nail-biting match - plenty of skill shown on both sides and a brilliant result for England. I wonder if DC was in the crowd?
On the subject of the Danes, has anyone clocked the actor Claes Bang? I first saw him a while back playing Dracula, then at the weekend saw him in The Burnt Orange Heresy.
At 53 he's too old to play 007, but he's a good actor and looks uncannily like a cross between Pierce Brosnan and George Lazenby:
England was the slightly better team - first goal an own-goal by a denish defender - second goal after a very controversial penalty.
Sterling imo best player of the tournament!
Other than this 65.000 people virtually unmasked packed in a stadium while having incidences over 200 and over 30.000 new Covid infections/day - together with booing at the Denish anthem and laserpointing Schmeichel is simply disgusting imo
I'm not English but I've been an England football supporter for most of my life. Unfortunately as a South African, it's rare for my country to even qualify for an international competition but I've got strong links to England so it's good to finally be able to see England play in a tournament final and I'm eagerly looking forward to Sunday's match.
Quick question- who is Schmeichel and what happened with laser pointing? (I do not watch football, keep it simple)
Schmeichel is the Denish goalkeeper and someone was pointing a laserpointer to his face multiple times during the match - also prior to the penalty.
He caught the first attempt - so I am not saying that it affected him directly during that shot, but it's simply unfair and appalling.
Happens not only in UK stadiums - which doesn't make it remotely better.
Thanks, Higgins. That's terrible.
(What's a goalkeeper, btw? Just kidding)
My Dad and Me have watched the last 3 games together and have been saying the same thing, Napoleon. There is still very much a safety first approach with England. While I am pleased we are winning, this team does not excite me in the way Terry Venables' 1996 side did. Italy are built the same way so the final could be a yawn.
Even I know a "goalkeeper" is like a gamekeeper, only for football and not deer etc. 😁
Apologies for quoting your whole post, as I’m only bothered about your last couple of sentences (I genuinely have no interest in the England national team)…
There have been numerous ‘test events’ in the UK (at least two in Liverpool) where people are allowed into events - in Liverpool’s case it was a concert and a ‘dance club event’…ALL had to provide a negative COVID test before entry…but then we’re allowed a ticket for entry with no face-masks having to be worn and no ‘social distancing’ required. ALL then had to provide another COVID test afterwards…out of the thousands in attendance there was about 28 positive tests afterwards…
.... and we all know how accurate those COVID tests really are......
Yes, around 98% accurate 👍🏻
Unless it‘s a PCR test ( you did not tell which kind of tests are used), it‘s more like 60%…..
Added: Just found one source mentioning „lateral flow tests“ which means around 60% accuracy.
Lea seydoux has tested positive for Covid-19, possibly keeping her from attending the Cannes film festival. I wish her a swift and complete recovery.
