The book includes an aerial photo map of each ground allowing the reader to locate the stadium in relation to the surrounding area and also has useful information on public transport facilities, where to park and also includes updated plans of the grounds identifying blocks and disabled facilities and also provides a brief sketch of each club's season, which makes this book the best illustrated guide for the travelling football supporter of Premier League and Championship football in England and Wales.

It is a little known fact that of the thirty seven clubs that have played in the English Premier League since its inception of the 92/93 season, twelve can trace their origin directly to a church. However, many of these famous football clubs know little about their origins or their founders. This book, which is the fruit of seven years intensive research, features chapters on: Aston Villa, Barnsley, Birmingham City, Bolton Wanderers, Everton, Fulham, Liverpool, Manchester City, Queen's Park Rangers, Southampton, Swindon Town and Tottenham Hotspur. This book is a must read for football fans everywhere!

The Development of Corporate Financial Markets in Britain and the United States, 1600–1914: Overcoming Asymmetric Information

In the following article, Professor Baskin traces the evolution of corporate finance from its beginnings among the British trading companies to its modern transformation in the United States at the end of the nineteenth century. He argues that deductive theoretical analyses based on perfect capital markets cannot always explain actual historical developments, and that financial history generally has not received sufficient attention from either economic theorists or historians. Professor Baskin suggests that financial markets developed as they did largely as a result of efforts to minimize the problems created by the asymmetry of information between company insiders and potential investors.

Entrepreneurial Failure Reconsidered: The Case of the Interwar British Coal Industry

In this article, Professor Dintenfass reexamines entrepreneurial efficiency in the interwar British coal industry. Using previously neglected company documents, he shows that cost-reducing and price-enhancing innovations in coal extraction, organizational practice, and marketing were not widely diffused, though neither geology, finance, nor industrial relations inhibited their adoption. He concludes that mismanagement was an important cause of the British coal industry's misfortunes in the 1920s and 1930s, but that the coalowners' failure to employ the new techniques cannot be attributed to the structure of the industry or to the survival of outmoded forms of business organization.

The Decline of U.S. Whaling: Was the Stock of Whales Running Out?

Re-emerging from the disruption caused by the Revolution and the War of 1812, the American whaling industry grew to dominate the seas between 1820 and 1860, only to suffer a severe decline during and after the Civil War. In the following article, Professors Davis, Gallman, and Hutchins examine the hypothesis that the U.S. whaling industry collapsed because the stock of whales was being depleted. After investigating the size of the original whale populations, their breeding habits, and the estimates of whales taken during the nineteenth century, the authors conclude that the overfishing of whales of various species occurred either not at all or too late to have been a contributing factor in America's whaling decline.

Business Cycles and the Sense of Time in Medieval Genoa

A great deal has been written about the perception of time before the invention of mechanical timepieces, but the nature of the evidence has led much of this literature to take on an impressionistic, even metaphysical, cast. In the following article, Professor Epstein uses specific data gleaned from the cartularies of thirteenth–century Genoese notaries to investigate more concretely the uses of time and the structure of the business day in Genoa. He concludes that, in this early center of Western commercial activity at least, an impulse toward greater precision in marking the time of day preceded the arrival of the clock.

The Canadian Securities Market, 1850–1914

In this article Dr. Michie examines the origins and development of the Canadian securities market from its appearance in the mid-nineteenth century until the First World War. He traces the growth of Canadian-based and Canadian-owned joint-stock enterprise and the rise of a distinct Canadian investing public, which led to the establishment of a Canadian securities market, and he explains why so much Canadian business continued to be transacted on both the London and New York stock exchanges. Dr. Michie also discusses the rivalry between the Montreal and Toronto stock exchanges and its detrimental consequences for the creation of a strong and unified Canadian market. Finally, he argues that, despite Toronto's rapid growth, Montreal remained the financial center of Canada throughout this period.

R&D and Competition in England and the United States: The Case of the Aluminum Dirigible

This historical comparison of the Vickers and Alcoa experiences with “borrowed” German airship technology highlights the importance of studying the way industrial R&D has been organized, both within industries and inside individual companies. Professor Graham shows that Alcoa's move in 1919 to organize its corporate Technical Department to include balanced research and development capabilities allowed it not only to appropriate Duralumin technology, but also to build on that technology so that it could be used to supply the infant U.S. airframe industry. Lacking such integrated R&D at the corporate level, Vickers obtained only short–term financial returns on its investment in Duralumin expertise. This article suggests that the differences in exploitation of high–strength aluminum derived partly from different national climates for R&D in the United States and England after the First World War.

Railway Pooling in Britain before 1900: The Anglo-Scottish Traffic

In this study of a neglected topic, Dr. Channon examines the attempts of British railway leaders to regulate competition among routes. Drawing illustrative material from the management of Anglo-Scottish traffic and making comparisons with the American railroad industry, Dr. Channon concludes that pooling agreements did not provide the long-term stability and savings that railway managers sought. Changes in traffic patterns led to dissatisfaction with pool allocations, and competitive pressures from outside, as well as legal and political uncertainties, undermined cconfidence in the pools. In contrast to the United States, where railroads were able to turn to consolidation after pooling had failed, in Britain this strategy was not a politically viable option.

Family Partnerships and International Trade in Early Modern Europe: Merchants from Burgos in England and France, 1470–1570

In fifteenth– and sixteenth–century Europe, international trade was often conducted by family partnerships. Commonly, one partner remained in the family's native land, while one or more family members established themselves temporarily or permanently abroad. In this article, Professor Mathers describes the mercantile activity of three families from the Spanish city of Burgos who profited from family partnerships that linked trade from northern Spain to England and France. She also examines the ways in which family inheritance practices and alternative family investments and expenditures affected the capital and continuity of the partnerships.

Saving the Fisherman as Well as the Fish: Conservation and Commercial Rivalry in Maine's Lobster Industry, 1872–1933

Historians of Progressive Era conservation measures have focused on the efforts of government resource experts to free environmental management decisions from special-interest groups. Professor Judd argues that this emphasis has obscured the importance of economic factions in securing conservation legislation reflecting their various interests. His examination of Maine's ongoing efforts to manage its lobster industry demonstrates that scientific conservation codes received legislative sanction only when they could be made to conform to the commercial needs of the industry's competing groups.

Corporatism in Comparative Perspective: The Impact of the First World War on American and British Labor Relations

Historians and social scientists have often described modern America as a uniquely pluralist society in which a collective bargaining model of industrial relations won an early triumph over other conceptions of labor relations. Professor Gerber challenges this traditional view. Comparing American and British thinking and policies relating to labor relations during and just after the First World War, Professor Gerber concludes that, in large part because of the war's impact, corporatist conceptions of political economy had by 1920 achieved a wide appeal in both Britain and America. Though a pluralist conception of collective bargaining may later have become dominant in the United States, at least as of 1920 many parallels existed between the emerging “corporatist bias” of British thinking about labor relations and American thinking about this issue.

The Rationality of Mechanization in the Pacific Salmon-Canning Industry before the Second World War

An industry may fail to adopt or to extend new technology for many reasons other than lack of entrepreneurial vision. In the following article, Professor Newell considers the halting and incomplete diffusion of mechanization and continuous-process technology in the salmon-canning industry of the Pacific Northwest. She shows that the fragile and cyclical character of the natural resource, the labor system employed, and the remote and isolated locations of individual production units all affected cannery operators' decisions about technology adoption, and that the persistence of manual labor reflected rational, not reactionary, business choices.

Wiley and the Whiskey Industry: Strategic Behavior in the Passage of the Pure Food Act

In discussions of the fight for the Pure Food and Drugs Act of 1906, Harvey Washington Wiley is usually portrayed as the consumers' champion, the Whiskey Trust as their adversary. Messrs. High and Coppin argue otherwise. Wiley's correspondence from 1904 to 1906 reveals a deep split between whiskey producers, with the makers of straight whiskey lining up behind Wiley's pure food bill and the rectified whiskey producers fighting against it. The authors argue that both sides used the consumer only as a convenient focus for their rhetoric their activities thus provide another example of regulatory legislation passed to further the goals of private interests rather than to protect the public interest.

“Giants of an Earlier Capitalism”: The Chartered Trading Companies as Modern Multinationals

Much has been written about late-nineteenth-century multinationals and their relationship to the transnational firms of the present, but both historians and economists have largely discounted the relevance of the earlier chartered trading companies to this discussion. In an article emphasizing transaction cost analysis and the theory of the firm, Professors Carlos and Nicholas argue that the trading companies did meet the criteria of the modern MNE—the growth of a managerial hierarchy necessitated by a large volume of transactions and of systems to control those managers over space and time.


Picture

The large, 10.1in LCD screen has always been a big selling point for the Amazon Fire HD 10 and it is exactly the same here, with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels. The latest Apple iPad Mini has a 2048 x 1536 display &ndash but, of course, you’ll pay over double the price for it.

We download RuPaul’s Drag Race UK from BBC iPlayer and the colours are bright, tonally accurate and vibrant, while blacks are inky, dark and detailed. The screen’s 16:10 aspect ratio in landscape mode is remarkably easy to get used to, particularly if you’re accustomed to Apple tablets.

There’s a modicum of noise and shimmer as contestants take to the runway during the lip-sync battle and we become aware of the Fire HD 10’s ability during motion scenes. It’s not the cleanest picture we’ve seen in a tablet, but it’s nothing short of a solid, enjoyable performance for the money.

Sampling the HD 10’s picture upscaling ability, we type &lsquoYouTube’ into the search bar (no app, remember) and cue up some Champions League action from BT Sport. A fast-paced game of football ranks among the more challenging of clips, and the Fire HD 10 struggles to deliver in Full HD, presenting the action with occasional softness and blur. The post-match interviews are clearer, but it’s a mixed bag. However, the HD 10 isn’t the only entry-level tablet to struggle in this respect.


Talent Identification and Development in Male Football: A Systematic Review

Background: Expertise has been extensively studied in several sports over recent years. The specificities of how excellence is achieved in Association Football, a sport practiced worldwide, are being repeatedly investigated by many researchers through a variety of approaches and scientific disciplines.

Objective: The aim of this review was to identify and synthesise the most significant literature addressing talent identification and development in football. We identified the most frequently researched topics and characterised their methodologies.

Methods: A systematic review of Web of Science™ Core Collection and Scopus databases was performed according to PRISMA (Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-analyses) guidelines. The following keywords were used: "football" and "soccer". Each word was associated with the terms "talent", "expert*", "elite", "elite athlete", "identification", "career transition" or "career progression". The selection was for the original articles in English containing relevant data about talent development/identification on male footballers.

Results: The search returned 2944 records. After screening against set criteria, a total of 70 manuscripts were fully reviewed. The quality of the evidence reviewed was generally excellent. The most common topics of analysis were (1) task constraints: (a) specificity and volume of practice (2) performers' constraints: (a) psychological factors (b) technical and tactical skills (c) anthropometric and physiological factors (3) environmental constraints: (a) relative age effect (b) socio-cultural influences and (4) multidimensional analysis. Results indicate that the most successful players present technical, tactical, anthropometric, physiological and psychological advantages that change non-linearly with age, maturational status and playing positions. These findings should be carefully considered by those involved in the identification and development of football players.

Conclusion: This review highlights the need for coaches and scouts to consider the players' technical and tactical skills combined with their anthropometric and physiological characteristics scaled to age. Moreover, research addressing the psychological and environmental aspects that influence talent identification and development in football is currently lacking. The limitations detected in the reviewed studies suggest that future research should include the best performers and adopt a longitudinal and multidimensional perspective.

The Dunes Review Writing Project was launched in 1996 by local poet, playwright, and writing teacher, Anne-Marie Oomen. A key early focus of the magazine was on promoting regional writing and to raise consciousness about Northern Michigan writers. It also utilized art by local artists for its cover. [8] It was originally sponsored by Glen Arbor Arts Association and the Traverse City Arts Council with the financial support of a mini-grant from the Michigan Council for the Arts and Cultural Affairs. [8] Their first issue was published in the spring of 1997. [9]

In 2002, there was a transition in management. The Glen Arbor Art Association began to share financial, advisory, and publication responsibilities with Michigan Writers (Traverse City). [10] Today, the magazine focuses on the best local as well as regional and national writers. [11] [12]

The magazine has held four distinct contests:

  • The "Anne-Marie Oomen Poetry Prize" (2003–2006), an annual contest held for high school students.
  • The "Leelanau Poetry Prize" (1997–2001), an annual poetry contest.
  • The "William J. Shaw Memorial Prize for Poetry" (1997–present), an annual contest named for a professor of the literary arts from Northwestern Michigan College. [1][5][6][21]
  • The "Youth Poetry Prize" (1997–2001), a poetry contest for poets under 18 years old.

"A hearty appetite for literature can be sated with the latest Dunes Review journal and 2011 chapbooks by Denise R. Baker (poetry) and Joan Schmeichel (short fiction) — all published by Michigan Writers." --Glen Arbor Sun [22]


What Is German Volume Training?

Popularized by legendary strength coach Charles Poliquin, GVT involves a lot of volume, little rest, and a limited timeframe. Generally speaking, programs can be crazy intense and short or more moderate in its intensity and a bit longer. GVT is the former: you go hard for three weeks and then you don’t try it again for at least six months.

“When I was a kid, I realized that in the Western world, German weightlifters were probably the most advanced in training results,” Poliquin, who died in 2018 , previously told BarBend. “So I went to the national training center in Leimen, and the then national weightlifting coach Rolf Feser explained how they would do periodization with 10 sets of 10, 10 sets of five, and 10 sets of three. They were big believers in the law of repeated efforts: one of the reasons people don’t get strong is because they simply don’t do enough sets.”

Here’s how German volume training works. You perform three workouts over five days and repeat that cycle six times for a 30-day program. (More advanced trainees might be advised to do the program for three cycles.)

Each workout has four exercises in two supersets, A and B. Both “A” exercises are performed with 10 sets of 10 at 60 percent of your one-rep max, with 90 seconds between sets : A1, rest 90 seconds, A2, rest 90 seconds, repeat 10 times. Sixty percent of your one-rep max might feel frustratingly light for the first few sets. It won’t by the end.

The Monthly Review

The Monthly Review began in 1749. The first series ran 81 volumes. A second series began in 1790 and ran 108 volumes. A third series began in 1826. In 1831, the volume numbering restarted at 1 at the beginning of every year this is sometimes considered a fourth series (with volumes in some libraries numbered continuously from 1831). The Monthly Review ceased publication in 1845.

Abstract

Newly assembled data show that, as China opened up to global trade during the early 20th century, its exports became more unskilled-intensive and its imports more skill-intensive. Difference-in-differences estimates show that World War I dramatically increased Chinese exports, raising the relative demand for the unskilled workers producing them. When the war ended, trade costs declined and China's terms of trade increased, further stimulating exports. A simulation of a dynamic general equilibrium model demonstrates that the effects of the war on China's terms of trade produces a decline in the skill premium similar to what China experienced in the 1920s.

Why fuboTV Is Running 15% Higher This Week

Shares of fuboTV (NYSE: FUBO) were running over 15% higher this week as the live-streaming sports platform enjoyed momentum from being both a so-called "meme stock" that's heavily shorted and having positive developments in its business. Meme stocks like fuboTV (which has 21% of its outstanding shares sold short), AMC Entertainment Holdings, GameStop, and Sundial Growers were all running higher this week, but fuboTV actually offered long-term investors something more than merely a rally point for taking on the monied interests. Ahead of the holiday weekend last week, it announced its programming lineup for the upcoming Qatar World Cup qualifying matches for the South American Football Confederation, called CONMEBOL, and followed that up with an announcement earlier this week that it was upgrading its app dashboard with enhancements for user engagement, such as streaming live sports data during an event and quizzes for viewers to win prizes.

3 Most-Shorted Stocks Positioned to Buy

They’re back! And quite simply, that’s popcorn style action featuring fast drawing bulls and vilified, deeper pocketed bears in high-profile, most-shorted stocks. But what should investors expect from next week’s show? If we’re to trust the price charts, three other supporting cast members should find stock performances worth today’s price of admission. A sequel to this year’s short-squeeze production of “the quick and the dead” co-created by Reddit’s Wallstreetbets has been under redevelopment rights this week with star power from AMC (NYSE:AMC) in the spotlight. And for exceptionally good reason. Shares surged by as much as 200% in the last five sessions.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Behind AMC ‘s bullish theatrics some are once again crediting hungry Redditors in need of new spots to place their buy orders. And to be sure, heavy speculation in cryptocurrencies Bitcoin (CCC:BTC-USD), Ethereum (CCC:ETH-USD) and Dogecoin (CCC:DOGE-USD) turning south of late does support the idea of a rotation going on. Arguably though, there is more to the story. 7 Best Stocks for Upcoming Grads to Buy and Hold Forever This week’s triumphant stock returns, figuratively and literally, also feature heavyweight most-shorted stock’s GameStop (NYSE:GME) and Beyond Meat (NASDAQ:BYND). What’s more, there are bullish reports ranging from AMC’s capital raising efforts, GameStop’s Ethereum news and BYND stock’s latest marketing exploits for bulls other than Redditors to graze on. Right? Blink Charging (NASDAQ:BLNK) Root (NASDAQ:ROOT) fuboTV (NYSE:FUBO) Who’s next within today’s universe of most-shorted stocks to deliver breaking news that can stir more than just the imagination? We won’t know until after the fact of course. But right now three diverse market companies with bears wagering against them are hinting the end may be near in a particularly good sort of way for bullish investors. Most-Shorted Stocks to Buy: Blink Charging (BLNK) Source: Charts by TradingView The first of our most-shorted stocks to buy are shares of Blink Charging. Short interest in BLNK stock come in at a hefty 36%. What does the resident bear population know? Optimistically and in bulls’ defense of this leading EV charging play, maybe as much as they thought they knew about AMC stock. Technically, a weekly double-bottom pattern off 62% support has been confirmed over the past two weeks by price follow-through and a bullish stochastics crossover. Today and based on the size of the corrective formation, a successful move into the right side of this base and relative to risk, still looks ripe for playing. To better position for the upside possibilities while keeping the downside exposure contained, I’d suggest structuring a July $35/$45 collar combination around this most-shorted stock. Root (ROOT) Source: Charts by TradingView Root is the next of our most-shorted stocks to buy. Root is a technology-based disruptor of insurance products operating a direct-to-consumer model and “usage-based” telematics. It sounds promising, but ROOT doesn’t have a first-mover advantage as other established competition is working those angles. Nevertheless, today conditions on the price chart are shaping up for investors other than ROOT stock’s bearish short interest of 32%. Technically, the weekly chart of ROOT reveals a stock that’s caught in a downtrend. However, the bearish cycle may have finally met its match. A Fibonacci-based two-step or mirror move pattern wherein leg AB matches CD completed last month. And it could be the start for a new bullish cycle. Thus far, this most-shorted stock has faltered beneath the pattern’s initial hammer at point D. But a second hammer formed two weeks ago. And with improved flattening stochastics at oversold levels, the signs for a new uptrend to emerge are looking decent. 7 Best Stocks for Upcoming Grads to Buy and Hold Forever Right now and for those that enjoy insurance for investments other than for homes and autos, a rally back above the hammer high of $10.13 looks worthy of writing a July $10/$12.5 collar policy on. Most-Shorted Stocks to Buy: FuboTV (FUBO) Source: Charts by TradingView The last of our most-shorted stocks to buy is FuboTV. Earnings this month from this streaming sports upstart has drawn the increased attention of bears with short interest rising from the mid-teens to just over 21%. But could this be another instance of the naysayers having it all wrong? It appears so. Off the price chart, FUBO delivered street-beating triple-digit subscriber and revenue growth. Of course, investors drawn to shorting the stock after the report could be focused on other line items or something management did or didn’t state, right? It’s always a convoluted possibility. Still, it’s also a fact those bearish positions are getting sacked. And today bulls are in strong position to take further control of this most-shorted stock on the price chart. Technically and as the provided weekly view shows, FUBO stock has successfully completed a two-step pattern at point D2 following a failed first attempt. And reinforced by a bullish stochastics setup, I’m a fan of a much stronger second half in 2021 for this most-shorted stock. To make a play toward an eventual challenge of FUBO’s midfield line near $39, investors may wish to suit up with an August $25/$35 collar combination for solid profit potential and protection.

All Bets are Off Whether FuboTV Stock Can Bounce Back

Following its strong quarterly results, is FuboTV (NYSE:FUBO) stock a buy? Yes and no. On one hand, it’s clear that this sports streaming/wagering play is showing signs it can live up to the sky-high expectations investors once had for it. Source: Tada Images / Shutterstock.com On the other hand, even with its strong recent numbers, it still has its work cut out for it. When it comes to streaming, it’s competing with larger, better capitalized rivals in big media and big tech. These competitors could make it tough for the company to acquire popular sports programming. When it comes to sports wagering, it must contend with first movers in the space, like DraftKings (NASDAQ:DKNG), as well as casino giants like Caesars Entertainment (NASDAQ:CZR), which again are more established, and have deeper pockets.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Said competition could limit how far it can grow. Add in concerns about its potential profitability, and the stock’s still rich valuation. Put it all together and it’s questionable whether shares, trading for around $25 per share today, won’t pull back further. Remember, FUBO stock was trading at $50 per share in February. FUBO Stock and Its Recent Quarterly Results Since its most recent quarterly earnings release, FuboTV shares have started moving back in the right direction. Taking a look at its results, it’s clear why we may be seeing signs of renewed optimism. 7 Cheap Stocks With Dividends for Both Returns and Cash Flow For the quarter ending March 31, revenue rose 135% year-over-year, and handily beat analyst expectations. On top of these strong financial results, the company upped its guidance as well. For the current quarter ending June 30, it projects revenue of between $120 million and $122 million. That’s more than 20% above Wall Street’s current estimates. In the spring, investors wrote this off as an over-hyped “story stock.” But it now appears there’s some steak to go with that sizzle. The question though, is whether it’s enough to give FUBO stock another major boost. Sure, the company is clearly still in growth mode. But while the numbers by themselves look impressive, many challenges remain on its plate. Trying to become profitable in a low-margin business with heavy competition, it’s questionable whether its streaming business can someday become a cash cow. As for its sports wagering business? That’s way behind its rivals, so it may be too late for it to build up a substantial customer base. High Competition Remains a Key Risk Its recent results may look solid, but existing issues are still on the table with FUBO stock. As our own Matt McCall discussed in April, streaming is a low-margin business that doesn’t scale well. Not only that, competition runs high when it comes to acquiring the rights to stream sporting events. Big media companies are still willing to treat sports as a loss leader for their broadcast and cable television networks. And they’re willing to continue paying up in order to attract audiences to their own streaming services. Big tech, looking to bolster subscriber numbers for their streaming services, has been paying up for sports as well. For example, Amazon’s (NASDAQ:AMZN) recently signed a $10 billion, 10-year deal with the NFL. Outbid for the A-list programming, FuboTV may be stuck with streaming marginally popular sports. That’s not good for its long-term prospects. Sure, perhaps it can make up the difference with its budding sportsbook operations. However, competition runs high in this space as well. While it’s only getting started with its sportsbook, DraftKings, Caesars, along with Flutter Entertainment’s (OTCMKTS:PDYPY) FanDuel and Penn National’s (NASDAQ:PENN) Barstool Sportsbook have built up tremendous user bases. By the time it’s finally rolled out its sports wagering app across the U.S., there may not be enough of the market left for it to capture. Putting it simply, it makes sense why investors became more skeptical about FUBO stock over the past few months. Recent results may be strong. But the jury’s still out whether its streaming and wagering services can give the established names a run for their money. The Bottom Line Another key issue with FuboTV is valuation. Given its high growth, it makes sense why it still trades at a fairly high price-sales multiple (around 6.3). But given the questionable prospects of its eventual profitability, coupled with the concerns that the larger names in gambling, media, and tech crowd it out, it becomes even harder to assess whether shares can hold steady at today’s prices, much less rally back towards their “meme stock” highs. So, what’s the best move with FUBO stock right now? Even if you still think the company has potential, wait for another pullback before initiating a position.
