            Wouldn't mind seeing the betting swongs on this one.

                    MCC having to pay back the Sunday gate and (long shot) even the Saturday gate is always amusing.

                        I think the reality is that the average TikTok viewer isn't substituting the sixone news for TikTok, but rather that they would never watch the news in any event.

                            Pretty sure I didn't watch any TV news between 2006 and 2016, and it seemed very strange watching it again then. Thanks to Putin's special military operation, I doubt I'll watch any again.

                                EA already has deals with most clubs / leagues.
                                Fifa had the name and World Cup. Fifa wanted a pretty hefty wedge for that alone.
                                It's a calculated gamble by ea. They'll have EA Soccer or something next year.

                                  So I bumped into an excellent New Yorker article about Ulysses (for an American!) last week and it energised me again.

                                  I felt a longing to dive back in. February marked the 100th year of its publication.

                                  Some of you might remember I chronicled my second reading of the great novel a couple of years back in the 'What are you reading' thread which has largely succumbed to the dominance of BB/M/V thread and now, thusly, largely unfindable.

                                  Anyway I was just Googling around and found a new 'definitive' annotated version of Ulysses which has recently been published - double the page count of the book itself if you don't mind!!! - and figured I would be a great experience BUT its 145 euro so I asked my wife to buy it for my birthday In September figuring it might be a keeper (given its academic roots etc.. it likely won't decrease in value.)

                                  And then I wondered how I could share some of the value out of it and thought I might ask on IPB if anyone fancied doing a Ulysses book club read kind of thing over the course of a year or so - real-time written commentary, annotated argument analysis, zeigiesty-zoom calls, real world meetings maybe? etc.. who knows, we could write the script like a day in the life...

                                  Long shot but if anyone fancies it pipe up and we could make it happen with all sorts of tangential types of joycean jiggery pokery going on.

                                  Here's an idea of how to start but there 's SO much more a pan-IPB assault on this greatest of novels might achieve.

                                    It's a kind of magic roundabout for me, mostly read along while listening to the RTE 1982 recording which is just the greatest thing ever. Every year I pick an episode at random and read along from there. Wandering Rocks, Sirens and Cyclops so far this year

                                    Hoping to make some of the performances of Barry McGovern reading in the Abbey next week.

                                              Losing €1m a day and making a third of their staff redundant during the pandemic, Dublin Airport bosses still found the funds to fit out a lavish new open-plan office for themselves .

                                              Located across the road from where passengers were queuing outside last weekend, the no-expense-spared office block is a world away from the cramped and dirty surroundings inside T1 and T2. The spacious work accommodation is also a far cry from the holding pens passengers will be herded into if queues get too long this bank holiday weekend.



                                              Nicknamed ‘The DAAcha’ after a posh Russian holiday home, the new headquarters has a boardroom with special switchable smart glass that frosts for privacy at the touch of a button.

                                              The ground floor canteen allows executives to eat cake in comfort while looking across the road at the queues of passengers standing outside the airport.



                                              A hipster red coffee trailer from Steam & Froth in the front yard provides barista coffee, other hot drinks, wraps and rolls away from the long lines of people looking for something to eat or drink inside the terminals.

                                              The architects – TOT – employed say they “utilised high ceilings and natural light to create a welcoming environment” for DAA staff.

                                              The design of the open-plan desk spaces, collaborative meeting spaces and breakout zones “provides a variety of settings that support a range of postures, presence and privacy”.

                                              “Inspired by movement and travel, the signature wing curve is the defining feature used throughout the design of the interior, from identifying the zoning and planning of the space to feature wall, ceiling and floor details,” TOT says.



                                              The furniture is top end. The Spanish lounge chairs from Valencia are designed “based on the classics of the Bauhaus”, while the desk chairs are “inspired by the physiognomy and movement of sharks” and the armchairs “have clear references to the Scandinavian design tradition”.

                                              The 43,000 square feet of office space across four floors was fitted out last year ahead of the return of staff following lockdown.

                                              Offices are not fully occupied yet as staff alternate between home and the new headquarters.

                                              A noticeboard with writing on it on the first floor shows there is activity, as does a hi-vis jacket draped across a chair.

                                              DAA chief executive Dalton Philips’s corner office looks back across toward Terminal 2 and the runway, and also has a view of the Dublin Mountains in the distance.

                                              The executive offices were previously based in different locations, including the original 1930s modernist terminal building and the 1970s Terminal 1.

                                              The new headquarters brings all the corporate departments together.

                                              As the architects note: “This new interior is the future of DAA; bringing teams together, building relationships and boosting collaboration”.

                                              The Dublin Airport Central office complex was developed by the DAA, which then made itself an anchor tenant.

                                              “There is no better option for your business premises to reside, with access to national and international transport, a beautifully modern work environment and a host of favourable amenities,” the office block marketing material says.

                                              There is no mention of queues.

                                                  “Inspired by movement and travel, the signature wing curve is the defining feature used throughout the design of the interior, from identifying the zoning and planning of the space to feature wall, ceiling and floor details,” TOT says.

                                                  The furniture is top end. The Spanish lounge chairs from Valencia are designed “based on the classics of the Bauhaus”, while the desk chairs are “inspired by the physiognomy and movement of sharks” and the armchairs “have clear references to the Scandinavian design tradition”.

                                                  The 43,000 square feet of office space across four floors was fitted out last year ahead of the return of staff following lockdown.

                                                  Offices are not fully occupied yet as staff alternate between home and the new headquarters.

                                                  A noticeboard with writing on it on the first floor shows there is activity, as does a hi-vis jacket draped across a chair.

                                                  DAA chief executive Dalton Philips’s corner office looks back across toward Terminal 2 and the runway, and also has a view of the Dublin Mountains in the distance.

                                                  The executive offices were previously based in different locations, including the original 1930s modernist terminal building and the 1970s Terminal 1.

                                                  The new headquarters brings all the corporate departments together.

                                                  As the architects note: “This new interior is the future of DAA; bringing teams together, building relationships and boosting collaboration”.

                                                  The Dublin Airport Central office complex was developed by the DAA, which then made itself an anchor tenant.

                                                  “There is no better option for your business premises to reside, with access to national and international transport, a beautifully modern work environment and a host of favourable amenities,” the office block marketing material says.

                                                  There is no mention of queues.

                                                  “Blessed are the forgetful, for they get the better even of their blunders.”

                                                        Losing €1m a day and making a third of their staff redundant during the pandemic, Dublin Airport bosses still found the funds to fit out a lavish new open-plan office for themselves .

                                                        Located across the road from where passengers were queuing outside last weekend, the no-expense-spared office block is a world away from the cramped and dirty surroundings inside T1 and T2. The spacious work accommodation is also a far cry from the holding pens passengers will be herded into if queues get too long this bank holiday weekend.



                                                        Nicknamed ‘The DAAcha’ after a posh Russian holiday home, the new headquarters has a boardroom with special switchable smart glass that frosts for privacy at the touch of a button.

                                                        The ground floor canteen allows executives to eat cake in comfort while looking across the road at the queues of passengers standing outside the airport.

Just can't seem to find it anywhere online, and Amazon won't let me purchase it due to not being in the UK (well they let you purchase the DVD, but who has a DVD player). Is there anyway of getting it?

My personal accidents, have been about 50% cars rear ending me, 30% cars reversing into me, 10% cars pulling out when I had right of way, and 10% getting caught by the rear end by an artic who somehow didn't see me. My general experience has been that most car drivers leave a random distance between themselves and the vehicle in front of them(regardless of speed), but don't consider a motorcycle a vehicle and so completely ignore them.
