If you tolerate this then your fans will be next


Football hooliganism is still rife in England and it baffles me why we are not banning those caught for life.

In an age where our every move is followed by CCTV cameras it seems the only reason that these so called “fans” commit such disgraceful acts is that they can get away with it.

Six years ago my brother was handed a three-year football banning order, along with twelve others, for an incident inside Carrow Road, the home of Norwich City.

Shorthand Champion League week three


Here are today's fixtures in the Shorthand Champions League, as the group table reaches its mid-point.

The second round of fixtures encapsulated everything we have come to expect from competitive Tee-line: drama, heartbreak and unimaginable glory.

As you know, we like to keep close tabs on our former CfJ students as their careers begin to flourish on the world journalism stage.

Occasionally, we (almost) wish we didn't. Especially when that career involves parading their underwear in the pages of national newspapers.

How Putin saved the Russian bear


In Soviet Russia, even wildlife relies on the State.

When the Soviet Union collapsed, it almost took with it several large Russian animals, a new study finds. Eight large animal species, including the moose, wild boar, and even the symbolic brown bear suffered a sharp population decline. There was an exception though. Amongst the ruins of the fallen Communist regime, wolves were having a field day.
