PL Clubs ‘Discuss Holding Friendlies And Training In Empty Stadiums’

Published

on

Premier League clubs are considering holding friendly matches and training sessions at their stadiums for behind-closed-doors practice ahead of the top-flight’s return.

Several managers and their coaching teams have discussed using home grounds in their Project Restart preparations to help familiarise players with their new surroundings for the remainder of the season.

The Premier League will resume from June 17 though all games will be without supporters leaving players needing to adjust to club games in empty stadiums.

Many top-flight bosses are hoping to arrange at least one warm-up fixture before the competitive action resumes with their players having not played since early March.

Staging them at training grounds is an option but using their stadiums will add further value to the games for clubs and managers.

If matches cannot be arranged holding training sessions will at least give managers and players some opportunity to gain experience of performing in empty grounds to take into the end of the season.

Holding practice matches at their stadiums would give clubs the chance to give their match travel plans a test run.

In Germany clubs have had to travel on multiple coaches so players can be far enough away from each other to observe social distancing guidelines and similar orders may be introduced here.

Stadium friendlies, if they can be arranged, will also be an early test of supporters and whether they comply with instructions to stay away amid concerns about them congregating outside grounds while they are locked out.

Premier League chief executive Richard Masters hopes supporters will be able to return to grounds at some point in 2020/21.

‘There is optimism at the Premier League and at clubs that we will see fans back in the stadiums next season and it may happen on a phased basis,’ he said.

Masters also confirmed it is ‘absolutely our intention to complete the season with VAR in place.’

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.

Nigeria’s secret police have warned of possible bomb attacks during celebrations for Eid al-Fitr, which marks the end of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.

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.
