PL: Liverpool and Man United Share Spoils at Anfield



Goalkeepers Alisson and David De Gea were the heroes as Manchester United and Liverpool played out an entertaining 0-0 draw at Anfield on Sunday.

The game was billed as potentially going a long way to deciding the Premier League title this year as the first and third placed teams faced off.

However, it was a scoreline that was perhaps to be expected as three of the last five meetings of the sides at Anfield have ended in scoreless draws.

Despite Liverpool enjoying the majority of the possession and shots on goal, United were controlled in defence and threatened with counterattacks.

Liverpool rained 10 shots on the United goal and looked the better side for the opening 30 minutes but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team came back into it in the final 15 minutes before half-time.

The second half continued at a similar pace. Roberto Firmino came close to scoring for Liverpool just before the hour mark when Andy Robertson blazed a ball across the United goal that he was inches from tapping home.

United’s best chance of the game came on 74 minutes when Marcus Rashford passed the ball to Luke Shaw on the edge of the box who sent a low ball dashing across the face of Alisson’s goal.

Bruno Fernandes got a touch to it but directed right at the Liverpool keeper.

At the other end of the pitch, De Gea was also forced into a save as Thiago aimed a ball at the top left corner of his goal.

The result extends Liverpool’s winless streak at home to four games, the longest the side has gone without one since February 2017, and also marks their third Premier League game in a row without scoring.

United, on the other hand, extend their unbeaten streak to 12 Premier League games which keeps them at the top of the table.




What governments all over the world are doing after COVID



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.
