What to make of the A-League’s dismal Champions League results

Australian football has it’s A-League fixture for 2020-21, while its federation will soon have a new name. That, plus young player minutes, the Asian Champions League, and more is on tap for a bumper ESPN Australian and New Zealand Football wrap!

A Message from the Emperor

Arriving with preparations that could, at best, be described as chaotic, Australian clubs have struggled in the Asian Champions League: Sydney FC, Perth Glory and Melbourne Victory all failing to record a win so far. It’s almost inevitable that, for the third year in a row, Australia won’t have a representative in the knockout stages of the tournament.

Of course, there’s no fremdschamen here. None of the three have been outright embarrassed in any of their contests and Perth and Sydney could have easily beaten Ulsan and Jeonbuk. But, you know, horseshoes and hand grenades.

– Five players to watch in the ACL: Iniesta,

Atlanta woman overcomes house fire and pandemic to launch small business

An Atlanta business owner has faced unexpected hardships this year, but she hasn’t let it get in the way of achieving her goal. 

Tammy Gammon is the owner of Three Dream Designs, a business that sells handmade accessories, clothing, and paintings. 

Gammon, a former educator, started creating handmade accessories several years ago. She decided to design a new line and launch it this year, but her journey came with some hurdles. 

Gammon’s house caught fire about three weeks into 2020. She and her three sons were able to escape unhurt, but the fire destroyed the home and some of her pieces.

“I refused to let myself be depressed because I have three boys. I have three sons that are looking up to me,” Gammon said.

WASHINGTON, DC — Want to deep fry your Thanksgiving turkey but don’t want to risk setting your house on fire? Then haul your turkey down to Nationals Park in D.C. Thursday for the 12th annual Turkey Fry, sponsored by the Washington Nationals and Medium Rare restaurants.

Can I go on holiday after lockdown? What the new tier system means for getaways

The Health Secretary Matt Hancock has today revealed what tier each part of the country will fall under, when lockdown ends on December 2.

Manchester, Hull and Newcastle are among swathes of the North set to face the toughest coronavirus restrictions with only three areas – Cornwall, the Isles of Scilly and the Isle of Wight placed into the lowest Tier 1 category.

The shift from national lockdown to a tiered system means that holidays will be back on the cards for people living in Tiers 1 and 2, where hotels and self-catering accommodation can reopen.

For anyone falling in Tier 3, however, hotels will remain closed, group holidays with multiple households will be banned, and non-essential travel in and out of your area will still be prohibited.

So will you be able to travel overseas, or within the UK, after December 2? Here’s a look at what re-entering the

‘Guilt gifting’ is a thing in 2020 as we try to make up for a rough year

The country is polarized about so many things — the election, the right way to tackle the virus, who you should or shouldn’t sit next to at Thanksgiving. So why shouldn’t 2020 holiday gift giving join the ever-growing list of potentially hot button topics?

On the one side, you can run into girlfriends or cousins who want to ditch holiday shopping. “Let’s just share good wishes, not gifts,” they’ll say. Makes sense. After all, many consumers suffered job losses, pay cuts or furloughs, shuttered businesses, the loss of loved ones to the coronavirus, and seemingly never-ending anxiety in 2020.

Then again, what’s the harm in sending someone a special box of gourmet cookies or coffees out of the blue? Or maybe even splurging by spending $500 or more on a Sony PlayStation 5? Kind of makes sense, too. We could all use a pick-me-up.

What about all those loved ones
