It was a year ago when the news started to break. Reporters from Korean internet company Newsis traveled to Jakarta to visit a ‘room salon’ and chat with the female staff. The story soon unfolded of how, during the 2007 Asian Cup held that July, four South Korean national team players visited the establishment on two occasions and drank until dawn – once before a vital game against Bahrain and then once after, following the shock 2-1 defeat.
Goalkeeper Lee Woon-jae, defender Kim Sang-sik and Qq Poker Online strikers Lee Dong-guk and Woo Sung-young were the senior members of the squad and the anger and disappointment at home was widespread. The Korean FA acted quickly and banned the quartet from national team duty for a year.
Weeks before the ban ended, a debate started. It asked whether there should be a recall for the foursome for …
Three days, two wins, two days of ridiculous results. Forest took full points from their Easter schedule and complimented it with two more days of fantastic results from elsewhere in League 1, to take sixth place and keep the promotion aspirations very much alive.
This unbeaten run is almost a throwback to the years BC. Dear Brian may he rest in peace… Not that I want to bang on about going ten games without a loss being a amazing turnaround of fortunes (oh yes I do…) but Forests rapid rise into the playoff positions has also had a lot to do with other teams faltering form.
Around the start of the month our task was to claw back seven points in as many games. Discussing this with my Brother, as pessimistic and superstitious as any Forest fan your likely to meet, we thought it to be …

THE CASINO COMP SYSTEM
Complimentaries, or “comps” as they are called in the business, include free drinks, overnight accommodations and meals, reduced or free airfare, and
other “freebies” given out by the casino. It’s estimated that over $700,000 worth of comps are given away everyday in Las Vegas alone. The bulk of these perks typically goes to those who are betting an …
The outlook for Mexican casino gaming is not good, at least in the near term, meaning the prospect of competition for Las Vegas from south of the border is just about dead.
A congressional committee in the Mexican lower house Wednesday approved a federal gaming and lottery law, but stripped out language legalizing casinos – in effect leaving land-based casino gambling illegal.
That means there won’t be any competition for Nevada from Mexico anytime in the foreseeable future, said Bear, Stearns & Co. analyst Michael Tew.
Wall Street analysts and industry insiders had said Mexican casinos would not represent a competitive threat to Las Vegas’ gaming industry, but lodging industry analysts had said such visitor attractions and the deflection of airline seat capacity to Mexico could affect Nevada.
The committee action also could mean the end to plans by Nevada operators to develop operations in …

The study measured the mental responses of 112 people aged either between 18 and 40, or 60 and 82. Half the people from each group played Bingo regularly whilst the other 50% didn’t. The results found that the Bingo players were both faster and more …
