  • Not All Leicester City Players Guaranteed a Premier League Winner's Medal

    Despite Leicester City's collective team effort to win the Premier League title, it seems that not all of the Foxes' squad will be eligible to receive a winner's medal this season, having failed to register the sufficient number of appearances, according to ​SportsJoe.   Premier League rules stipulate that winner's medals are only guaranteed to players that have featured five times or more, which means that the likes of Mark Schwarzer and Marcin Wasilewski are set to miss out.  Of course,...

  • This Number Is Illegal - And You Can’t Post It Online

    As YouTube channel Wendover Productions explains this week, the number is a cryptographic key – which could be used to decode DVDs, and which circulated widely among people in 2007. It’s illegal because it allows people to get round copyright protection systems – and America’s MPAA took this very seriously (at least for a while). Wendover Productions said, ‘In 1998, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act was passed in the US, making it illegal to get around copyright protection systems. ‘People were breaking the law just by being in possession of this number – an easily findable prime.’ In 2007, America’s Motion Picture Association of America fired out multiple cease and desist notices to websites hosting the number.

  • Naked models and muddy boots: dark side of the Chelsea Flower Show

    Mark Fane, veteran of 23 gardens at the Chelsea Flower Show, gives his warts-and-all guide to what it's really like behind the scenes. Think of the Chelsea Flower Show and most people think of smiling faces, clean designers and lots of press. But during the 20 years I have worked behind the scenes as a contractor (as co-director of Crocus I have built 23 show gardens of which 20 have won gold and eight have won best show garden) I have seen another side of Chelsea. I’m tempted to call it the dark side. It’s certainly less glamorous: a Chelsea of long, boring meetings, cold nurseries and a lot of rain interwoven with a great deal of competitiveness.
