 Tough drug laws have little effect on adult drug taking, Britain’s Home Office has admitted for the first time.

Spot Betting Football Spotlight

sutton united football clubSpot betting and spot fixing on football games is in the spotlight again. So what is a spot bet and which sports work best with these types on investments and more importantly should you or should you not take notes? Adam Lovejoy shares his understanding in todays sports entry from London.

Adam focuses on footballers, explains spot betting and gives a few tips on how to spot the ball by reading the news.Today’s story is about tabloid news this week about spot betting football. The industry has taken a knock in Europe and like the National Lottery people are always wondering how they can win where the odds of winning without a formula are actually quite thin.

In the search for solutions some theories are out there which may help you understand about winning and the trails and tribulations that this is having in the sports industry, from sponsorships to looking at the photograph and trying to figure out where the ball might be at any given time.carshalton athletic football club

The National Crime Agency, the FBI in the US has come up with some interesting ways of trying to figure out where the ball might be at any given time and devised a way of spotting if anything has been photoshopped or anything like this.

It was only a matter of time before the rest of the world took heed. Also one other way of reducing the odds are by focusing on the players, looking at the kickbacks and questioning there every step on the possible match fixing process. The obvious challenges were the weather conditions, the size and type of the ball used, the type of grounds the game is played on, a good understanding of the stadium, the height and styles of players, the time of year and how well they are doing that year. Who do you choose, who do you think is most likely to score a goal and from which angle. The coach is known to give good instructions but on the day its down to the players and good team work.

Well Informed Taken For A Ride

well informedThere is no one size fits all when it comes to explaining the economy these days and even the well informed can be taken for a ride.

R.F. Wilson writes from London:

“Blimey, that’s absolutely fabulous! It means you’re aware that for the last 15 years or so you’ve  God-given right thanks to people like Tony Blair here in the UK and other politicians in the USA.”

A lot of people, intelligent people ask me how is the economy doing? What is the future of global currencies and can you please explain about what is going on with the finances around the world. Its a difficult question to answer because there are so many people with similar answers that do not make sense. Read the full article over on Stirring Trouble Internationally.

So how did it all start, what was the catalyst for the slump in figures? Many people think it started with the war in Afghanistan and blame organisations like the Taliban who are the secret enemy behind the scenes that are creating all those people pulling strings and pressing buttons to make a heap of mistakes.

Further afeild different problems arise take the Arab Spring for example or the Middle East and North Africa. What we are experiencing is nothing compared to what people like Colonel Gaddafi had to go through.

Read the full article over on Stirring Trouble Internationally . If you’re so well informed, how come you’re taken for a ride with such ease? Nobody seems to know what the heck is going on.
