  1. The planets are not exactly perfectly aligned for Scottish independence - I think there should be another inde ref and as a Scot I would certainly consider moving back there if it looked like Scotland would be a success in the EU, but the economic and social reality of a customs border between England and Scotland is just too horrible to contemplate. Scotland would be separated from an english speaking country of 60 million where 90% of its exports go. That would change over time, but I suspect that unless England remains in the single market Scotland would experience extreme financial hardshi

  2. There was an article that said they were to builiding towers outside the stadium to strengthen the roof. Ruben Look that there is some steel cables on the tower. Cla├║dio Silva As you see, the stage is not elevated as I said before. Now they're putting all the line arrays (more than 10 I read) and all the lights.

  5. Let's just hope and pray those 'someones' don't turn out to be Johnson and Farage! The frightening thing is that the majority of the country seems to have turned to THEM for political leadership in the last few days!!!

  6. requebram dancers to the rhythm of "small step" funk carioca in a tent. In a climbing wall outdoors, dancers rehearse precise movements. parkour athletes (urban sport to overcome obstacles) are oriented to give risky jumps amid a complex choreography on an imaginary stage. With headphones, each member listens to his music and the instructions of the choreographers. To the casual observer, everything happens almost in silence, broken by the sound of cars and trains neighborhood. As montassem a huge puzzle, hundreds of artists and volunteers rehearse daily in secrecy, all details of the open

  7. I'm still reeling from the chaos. I voted remain in the hope the UK could contribute to the EU reform process which is now inevitable. It's such a shame we've put ourselves in this hideous position. There is something stirring in the UK but it's not faccism. The political parties as we know them are finished. The conservatives don't realise it yet but they're finished. The Labour Party is also finished and is in the midst of committing suicide as I write. The truth is people are waiting for someone to inspire some kind of authentic and manageable change but we're stuck with the most mediocre s

  8. While I mostly agree, I think it's also all relatively speaking. In this case, for instance, no the USOC is not looking at this (2024 bid) as a form to keep them in the 'conversation' to go with "another city" for 2028, as what was how the initial poster framed the question. If L.A. loses 2024, the USOC most undoubtedly would go with them again for 2028, for all the reasons already discussed in this thread. But let's remember that Atlanta 1996, in the eyes of the USOC at that time at least (cuz of course the Atlanta bid committee thought otherwise), were not expecting to win that one. Back i

  9. I think after the 2026 race (the IOC most likely will go anywhere besides Asia for those winter games) Almaty should definitely bid for another one. So long as they continue to bid on hosting other events to improve their hosting experience the IOC will certainly take them into consideration. I think 2030, with 2034 being more ideal, is their best shot. If they end up building a permanent sliding venue before they bid on a games, then that's an expense they won't have to add to their budget for future bids.
