Well, in the case of Swedish pole vaulter Armand Duplantis it was a good job his chat with his girlfriend went on a bit. World record holder Duplantis was due to meet up with American rival Sam Kendricks for a coffee but ended up missing the appointment because of his phone call. Kendricks then tested positive for Covid-19 and was ruled out of the Olympics, and three members of Australia’s track and field team are still isolating after being identified as close contacts. “I was going to meet with him in the Olympic Village and have a coffee but I was speaking to my girlfriend for too long and missed it,” Duplantis said on Saturday after easing through qualification to reach the final. “So it’s thanks to her that we weren’t together. “It’s so sad because Sam was in really good shape and he always jumps high at a championships, so basically there is a medal spot free now. “I didn’t have a uniform before leaving for the stadium this morning.”Tokyo Olympics: Armand Duplantis glad to have avoided coffee with Sam Kendricks (BBC Sport Olympic Games)

Control the chess pieces in the game, the goal is to guard a piece of pure land in the desert, predict the opponent’s thoughts, and issue restraining orders through the command array in the hand. The biggest issue I have with ‘Sword’s Soul Duel’ is not so much the crazy price point, but the lack of single-player options as well as the lack of online players. This game is currently a shell of a game with no real way to play it other than getting a friend to pay the extortionate price point of which I am not sure the online multiplayer modes even work! All you can do in single-player mode is practice. While it looks good some of the time, especially some of the cool spells there is nowhere near enough content nor players for me to recommend this. Maybe with more online players, it would be worth playing – Sword’s Soul Duel (Steam VR) (The VR Shop)

The Department of Health has also asked that people travelling after 1 August not to apply “Or they will simply delay the full restoration of normal services”. The certificates are required by people who are travelling abroad and need official proof that they have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19. “So we have been keeping the lights on, but it’s just been frantic in the background trying to make sure that we can get something up and running for people on the first of August,” Dr O’Neill said. When asked about the security issued on Friday morning, Dr O’Neill said: “The problem wasn’t actually in anything that we built.” Vaccine certificates are required by people who are travelling abroad and need to prove their vaccination status He explained that the system is using the NI Direct website’s identity facility, through which people can set up a personal user account to access services such as driving licence renewals. The site suffered a security glitch on 22 May which enabled people to alter details on the document.

  1. Considering the western countries have had a long, long time now to consider, at least in theory, what happens after people are vaccinated, you’d think they’d have just a small clue about what they’re doing with passports. But no. In the UK, it’s a shambles and nobody can decide whether they’re needed or not, which doesn’t help regular folks or businesses.

    But thankfully all that nonsense can be averted with some good chocolate. I’ll join you in that. I eat the stuff every day so I’m surprised my blood isn’t 30% tea, 70% cocoa 😄
