My boss is a wicked man.. I am due for promotion for the past three years but he wouldn't recommend me for it.. Instead he gave my colleagues he is having sex with. I was frustrated and needed help until my friend told me to talk to an hacker who could hack his computer and make the necessary recommendations.. I contacted many hackers which are fake but how God will have it. When am about to give up. I met Bryan who offers to connect me to a real hacker.. In case you need a hacker.. Contact Bryan on his Gmail

Note that he is not a hacker.. He was a victim of fake hackers that wants to put an end to them all by helping us to get a real one...

" They are speaking to FIFA in a language it understands: money."
Well almost everybody understands this language though previous sponsors also take into account their reputation when being engaged with FIFA. I guess that if FIFA cleans up its files Western companies will come back.


This article meant to remind people that Ivanhoe went to the tournament with the sponsorship of a Jew named Issac.... another parallel between antisemitism and antisinoism. Yes?
knock, knock
who is there?
Ivan who?


Re snide last sentence in your article -
Let's face it, TE. Money is a language you guys understand too, No?
Why publish so many trash articles mixed with your very good ones, except to rouse the subscriptions of guest-somethingortheother, along with all the internet trolls you refuse to get rid of?
I am not talking about differences in opinions. All educated people understand diversity in opinions is not a bad thing, and have room in their brains for. I am talking about folks who post solely to harass other posters, ad hominem, brazenly and repeatedly, a thing against your published comment policy. Does money not have something to do with it?

Swiss Reader in reply to ashbird

ashbird, I fear the snide remark applies to Swiss-based FIFA rather than to China. And much to my regret I must admit that FIFA is reputed to be about the most-sold article in Switzerland; as a matter of fact, I think much stronger words would be justified. In my private view, that organization is about as honorable as the Cosa Nostra.

Thanks for correcting me, Swiss Reader. I truly and greatly appreciate it.
It is important that correct info is learned and incorrect is discarded. I am happy and grateful you took the time. You are very kind.
I didn't know FIFA was Swiss-based either.
Privately, I idolize sports and athletes, because that is one thing I cannot even fantasize myself doing, let alone be semi-good at . It hurts to find out the object of one's adulation is Nostra-ized. I suppose "c'est la vie".
