A 'patriotic' bipartisan presidential ticket determined by a coin flip demands to be taken seriously

  A 'patriotic' bipartisan presidential ticket determined by a coin flip demands to be taken seriously "Unity 2020" is an "intellectual dark web" star's plan to win the presidency and unite the country. But it has no candidates or ballot access.To gain ballot access in all 50 states, third parties struggle for years. These lesser-known parties launch nationwide grassroots efforts to collect signatures, file paperwork, and clear innumerable bureaucratic roadblocks. In many cases, a bid also requires reaching a vote-percentage threshold in down-ballot elections for the national party's presidential candidate to stand a chance of making it onto the ballot.

Plagued by individual errors behind, Saint-Étienne goes on to a fourth game without a win in the league. Jostled for a large part of the second half, Nice did not ask for much to pocket the three points and prepare as best as possible for his return to the European scene.

Saint-Étienne 1-3 Nice Goals: Aouchiche (57th) for Saint-Étienne // Lees-Melou (8th), Gouiri (30th), Maolida (90th) for Nice

A harmless cross by Jordan Lotomba, Amine Gouiri who cuts his effort seeing that the ball can not reach him and the defense of the Greens who decides to offer a huge gift to the international striker hopes. Between the two, poor Saïdou Sow who tries to let the ball go to his goalkeeper Jessy Moulin but grazes it with his toe and prevents the Saint Etienne goalkeeper from seizing it. A totally improbable ball, which sums up quite well the first period experienced by AS Saint-Étienne against more precise Aiglons. Weighed down by many absences, the Greens came to the kickoff with many neophytes. On the Nice side, on the other hand, Dante and his gang took the opportunity to collect a second straight victory despite a second act totally to the advantage of Monnet-Paquet and his friends. Good to take, four days away from regaining a taste for Europe with a trip to Germany to challenge Bayer Leverkusen.

  Streamsong reopens Red, Blue courses with ridiculously smooth new putting greens BOWLING GREEN, Fla. – Rolling, rolling, rolling, keep those golf balls rolling. And if the ball never bounces on a green during a putt attempt, even better.

The new turf, without any doubt, provides some of the smoothest Bermuda grass surfaces found anywhere.

Puel's adjustments, holes in the defense

Before this famous 30th minute, the Greens had already given in for the first time following a corner badly rejected by Jessy Moulin and taken over by Pierre Lees-Melou for the opening of the score (0-1, 8th). A start to the match in which Saint-Étienne nevertheless gradually put his foot on the ball, tried to find shifts on the sides but sorely lacked technical accuracy and ideas to destabilize a rearguard perfectly commanded by Dante. Here too, a corner is needed to see Youssouf forcing Walter Benítez to his only real parade in the first act (11th). But the most dangerous are the visitors. Gouri, well picked up by a nice tackle from promising Rétsos, or Rony Lopes have the opportunity to make the mark worse.

Voici les notes des joueurs de l'OM après cette victoire contre Brest pour le premier match en Ligue 1 (2-3) !

Neyou, crazy route

So opposite, Claude Puel tries to adapt. Exit the defense to three, place to a more classic line of four. Above all, the offensive animation is reshaped as the invisible Adil Aouchiche (seven balls hit in twenty minutes) leaves his position as playmaker to go eat the left wing when Romain Hamouma imitates him on the right side. So many tactical adjustments that collapsed in just a few minutes, with the break offered to the Aiglons (0-2, 30th). A second pawn which comes to cut the legs of Stéphane, in the last quarter of an hour of the first period barely enlivened by a strike in the clouds from Kevin Monnet-Paquet yet perfectly shifted to the right of the surface (44th).

On the theme of the ball

The fifteen minutes in the fridge are good for the Forez players, back on the pool table of Geoffroy Guichard transfigured. Claude Puel continues his tactical changes by launching Denis Bouanga in front and a left-back by profession in the person of Miguel Trauco, and the pressure changes sides. Without forgetting the old habits: a passing error in the midfield allows Pierre Lees-Melou to try his luck, and to convey a concern in the poorly furnished stands of the Cauldron. Out of frame. Nothing to hide the fact that Nice is no longer there. To the point of seeing Walter Benítez completely miss his revival, allowing Romain Hamouma to provoke in the Nice area to serve Aouchiche. Which brings back the Greens in the match (1-2, 57th).

Three dead as woman beheaded in knife attack at French church

  Three dead as woman beheaded in knife attack at French church Three dead as woman beheaded in knife attack at French churchNICE, France (Reuters) - A woman was beheaded by an attacker with a knife who also killed two other people at a church in the French city of Nice on Thursday, police said, in an incident the city's mayor described as terrorism.

Puel: "Saint-Étienne was going into the wall"

In all good moves, the former Caennais then claimed a penalty for a light stroller from Dante. Without success. Before seeing Benítez intervene, on a good free kick (69th). On the other side of the field, Nice is no longer dangerous except on a few rare incursions by Amine Gouiri, now far too lonely, while his defense begins a collection of yellow cards. Saint-Étienne might push to pick up again, it is often too disorganized to worry Aiglons. Who even offered a last goal at the very end of the match thanks to Maolida, successfully served by Ndoye (1-3, 90th). The last thrill of an afternoon which sees the Aiglons quietly moving back a short distance from the podium.

Saint-Étienne (3-4-1-2): Moulin - Sow (Trauco, 46th), Moukoudi, Rétsos - Sissoko, Camara, Youssouf (Gourna-Douath, 57th), Monnet-Paquet (Rivera, 73rd) - Aouchiche (Benkhedim, 78th) - Krasso (Bouanga, 46th), Hamouma. Coach: Claude Puel.

Nice (5-3-2): Benítez - Lotomba, Bambu, Dante, Nsoki, Kamara - K. Thuram (Maolida, 72nd), Schneiderlin, Lees-Melou - R. Lopes (Danilo, 83rd), Gouiri (Ndoye, 83rd). Coach: Patrick Vieira.

Paul Goydos, Brandt Jobe lead Charles Schwab Cup Championship .
