Dates for this season’s remaining FA Cup fixtures have been confirmed with the quarter-finals to take place over the weekend of June 27-28 and the final fixed for August 1.

The announcement of the Premier League’s resumption on June 17 has given English football impetus and now the Football Association has been able to slot in Cup dates.

The four quarter-finals – Leicester City vs Chelsea, Newcastle United vs Manchester City, Sheffield United vs Arsenal and Norwich City vs Manchester United – will be played over the weekend of June 27-28.

The precise days and kick-off times, plus television coverage on BBC and BT Sport, has yet to be confirmed. All matches will be played behind closed doors.

The semi-finals will take place over the weekend of July 11-12 and the final will be on August 1.

Although venues for the semi-finals and final are yet to be confirmed, it is expected at least the final will be played at Wembley as is tradition.

Football in England has been suspended for over two months amid the Covid-19 pandemic, with the FA Cup quarter-final draw made back on March 4.

The FA’s CEO Mark Bullingham said: ‘We are pleased to agree the provisional restart date for the 2019/20 FA Cup.

‘The competition has been an integral part of the English football calendar for nearly 150 years, and we’d like to thank the Premier League executive and clubs for their support in scheduling the remaining matches during this unprecedented time.

‘This has been a difficult period for many people and while this is a positive step, the restart date is dependent on all safety measures being met.

‘The health and wellbeing of players, staff and supporters remains our priority.’

All eight teams left in the competition are from the Premier League and they will face an intense fixture schedule if they advance in the Cup.

The aim is to complete all remaining 92 Premier League fixture in a window of just 39 days, with the final weekend on July 25-26.

The FA Cup final would then be staged the following weekend.

What governments all over the world are doing after COVID

Published

What governments all over the world are doing after COVID in 2022.

One of the most important ways that societies intervene to buffer the adverse consequences of socioeconomic disadvantage is through the provision of social assistance. Social assistance refers to government programs that provide a minimum level of income support to individuals and households living in poverty.

When people talk about people receiving public assistance – food stamps, disability, unemployment payments, and other government help – they often have stereotypes and inaccurate perceptions of who those people are and what their lives are like.

This view of some people is affecting policy for the growing ranks of our nation’s poor, says a new report from a joint project from Save the Children and the Center for American Progress. The report compares the U.S. means of measuring economic opportunity and poverty with the experience of other countries, including five peer nations on the same income scale. It shows that people in many peer countries are given assistance as a matter of public policy, and these nations tend to view welfare programs as a short-term emergency measure.

Many countries like the U.S and spend significantly more taxpayer money on assistance than peer countries. After a few years of assistance, people on welfare in the U.S. have a much more difficult time finding jobs, according to the recent National Survey of Transitional Assistance Providers. These programs lend support either in the form of direct cash transfers or through a variety of in-kind benefits (e.g. food stamps and rent subsidies). Social assistance has been shown to strengthen the purchasing power of the poor and raise their material standards of living.

However, the government does not provide these social assistance programs to ensure marginalized populations are treated fairly, the report says. In fact, U.S. policy determines participation by significant factors, such as the stigma associated with poverty.

Many social programs determine eligibility before a person’s need for support. They include the U.S. Earned Income Tax Credit, which provides an additional tax refund to working families. Similarly, these benefits are made available only to the poor, as with food stamps and Medicaid eligibility. The report finds positive signs.

Throughout the world, government assistance helps increase your odds of getting a job, incorporates receiving benefits (by lowering the barriers to receive), raises your wages, and reduces the chances of falling into poverty. This means people who receive the assistance are less likely to experience long-term poverty.

Some nations take a deliberate approach to the provision of social assistance because they view the social support system as integral to promoting social and economic mobility. In many cases, straight into the workforce programs and an expansion.

Access to jobs is crucial to moving families out of poverty. Unemployment and disability, for example, only benefit people when they work. A policy reform could make the social safety net more effective.

In a statement, spokesperson Peter Afunanya said the Department of State Services (DSS) had uncovered a plot by suspected gangs to carry out attacks on critical infrastructure, places of worship and recreation centres.

The warning comes after recent explosions at bars in the north-eastern states of Taraba and Yobe that killed several people.

Russia Cuts Off Gas Supplies To Bulgaria And Poland

The Russian energy giant Gazprom says it has cut off all gas deliveries to both Bulgaria and Poland after both countries refused to start paying for the supplies in roubles.

Earlier, both Polish and Bulgarian energy providers said they had received official notices from the Russian gas supplier that deliveries were due to be cut.

Gazprom’s announcement comes after some confusion earlier this morning, when data showed gas supplies into Poland through Belarus temporarily reduced to zero before resuming.
