    hi guys, since the beginning of this contest, so many users contacted me to join here but I didn't, this time here I am but first I want to be sure about my responsibilities here. I read the rules in first page but that was too long, and I'm not a fan of Eurovision to know its format. so in short I have to pick an Iranian song in next couple of days (I already have one or two in my mind) then I have to listen to all those selected songs from all countries to pick 12 and rank them from 1st to 12th. that's it ?

    I can explain why I take time to vote during a longer period of time. Firstly, it is proven that you need to listen to a song more than 2,3 times to fully experience the effect of it and to realise its full potential. Secondly, I make 3-4 day breaks after every consecutive re-listening in order to see how time changes my perception of a song. Also, ranking your selected songs on different days help you achieve more well-rounded results, because there are always mood swings (after that you can averagely see which songs constantly do well and which tend to jump around in your rankings) Then, after you have your twelve, there's another ranking required, because your brain gets accustomed to the order in which the songs are played, so you mix them up to see how they rank once the listening order is not specific Final listen to the top 12 to see that you are certainly happy with your decisions and you don't need to regret your votes after 2 days of sending them. Long story short, if your song got points from me, it travelled a long and tough road through my selection process At the moment I am down to 12, but I'm having trouble shaking off 13th and 14th places as they deserve the points as well.

    Well, if we don't get any changes in the song selection, then I already have my 12 and 11 points pretty clear and seven countries that'll get points from me seems to be decided already (just don't know the order). Other than that, there are another 15 songs that have a chance to make it. First impressions after listening to all of the songs could be described by one word - bland. Perhaps I'll end up liking the songs more and I'll change my mind, but so far, there are not many great vocalists or brilliant instrumentals that I can stand behind, also it seemed like quite a few countries picked songs without character. Sure, there are songs that will probably get a fair amount of points at the end of the day, but there are so many songs similar to them in the contest alone. It was the first time that I didn't know a single song from the nominated ones, although I knew some of the artists. What was surprising for me is that this year my chart is mostly dominated by countries that usually didn't get votes from me, although I had noticed a tendency that a few countries always did well in my rankings, this year I felt underwhelmed by a few of my favourites. Anyways, I'll re-listen to the songs at the end of the week and perhaps I'll see (hear) them in a different light.

    Forum is not important, but things like that might help people take their mind off things for a bit (I mean, last year when someone close to me died I was back watching sports some minutes after I got the news, because there was nothing I could do and it took my mind away from things). Obviously it's different for everyone, but I mean, I can imagine things like this sort of help with keeping the mind busy.

    Our coach just got fired, the Netherlands is now the happiest country in the world His reaction: "We were well on our way, the loss against Bulgaria was an incident." Which is exactly why it's great that he is gone.

    Well, I think most religions talk about peace. But I understand your point, most religions have at some point in history to exert some dominance, supremacy over people. Religious extremists and orthodox followers (not to be confused with Eastern Ortodox/Christian Ortodox) often disregard peace in their crusade to bring "heretics" and "sinners" into the right path, even when that actually violates the dignity and natural rights of people.

    I don't think ISIS gives specific instructions to anyone outside Iraq-Syria area. All the ISIS terrorist attacks outside the area are carried out by a small group of radicals who are using ISIS brand. An Indian-American commentator has written a couple of nice posts about the difference between ISIS - the organization in Iraq-Syria area and ISIS - the brand. First Post Second Post

    Legendary Brazilian rider Rodrigo Pessoa has been named the new Chef d'Eauipe of Irish Showjumping. Really excited to see what he can bring to the table. Hopefully he can finally bring some consistency from the Irish team who have been underperforming hugely for over a decade. Robert Splaine held that position for far too long in my opinion without merit. Hopefully progress will follow http://www.theirishfield.ie/pessoa-is-new-irish-show-jumping-chef-dequipe-262922/

    I won't be amazed. The present Indian PM Narendra Modi has conducted large scale diaspora events in many countries he has visited. Even though these programs were just outreach programs and nothing political, Indian Government ensured that local government had no issues with the programs (in all such programs, local leaders, not of Indian origin, were invited to be part of the event). If Netherlands government feels a certain event can cause law and order issue, it has every right to deny permission to that event. Be it Erdogan's event or Modi's event or any other leader's event.

    To keep it as neutral as possible: There's a big referendum coming up in Turkey next month, effectively giving Erdogan even more power if some law or change or something is approved via that referendum. Obviously he wants everyone to vote yes, so he's sending his ministers all over Europe (well, countries like the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, you know, where a lot of Turkish people can be found) to campaign for the 'Yes' camp. I believe Switzerland is allowing it, but Germany started refusing some ministers and now the Netherlands is doing the same. Saturday one of them was supposed to hold a public speech near the Turkish consulate, but in the days leading up to that, Dutch politicians (including the minister of Foreign Affairs) were making it more and more clear they did not want them to do that here. Then on the day she arrived, they didn't give her plane permission to land and she had to drive via Germany. In Rotterdam, her convoy was stopped and she wasn't allowed to go to the place where she'd have her speech. This whole thing eventually resulted in a couple hundreds of Turkish people living in the Netherlands gathering near the consulate, protesting and stuff. Apart from some small unrest, luckily it didn't turn as violent as one could have expected, so that's good. The Turkish minister of course was angry ("you're breaking all laws!"), Wilders of course was as happy as a child in a candy store ("Leave this country and bring all those fans of yours with you!") and Erdogan called the Netherlands 'remnants of the nazis' or something similar and is now promising sanctions and everything (which nobody here really cares about...at all. These sanctions would have just as much effect as when I tell you that if you don't listen to me, you won't be allowed to watch the Dutch high school bog snorkling championships). I'm sure I forgot some things but to the best of my limited knowledge when it comes to politics, this is about it

    Its dificult for me this time....i agree with @Werloc about "bland songs" and for me, the most part of them are average song: a very few good or bad songs, the most part in the middle.

    Neka svaki sistem pogura nekoliko sportova, napravi im objekte i kad se svi promijene eto nama odlične sportske infrastrukture. Slažem se sa @NikolaB, ljudi su napravili za atletiku ono što čekamo decenijama i vi odmah to napadate. Po vašoj logici ko je na vlasti ne treba ništa da napravi, jer se to neće sviđati njegovim protivnicima, a kad njegovi protivnici dođu na vlast, ni oni ne treba ništa da naprave, jer se to neće sviđati ovim što su bili prije njih. Sport treba maksimalno koristiti politiku da dobije što bolje uslove, dosta je politika koristila sportiste..

    Final Standing available here Pavlo Crolympic Federer91 Congratulations to our second winter sports winner this year and again it's a croatian Congratulations @Crolympic ! Congratulations team Croatia ! This contest has been from far the toughest one this year; everyone could have won on the last day. The battle for gold was very hard between five players @Crolympic @Pavlo @Federer91 @tuniscof and @Dunadan. But the final word was croatian In his way to get the gold, @Crolympic didn't take the lead more than once on the first seven days of the contest, but he stayed between 2nd and 3rd before the last three days where he kept the lead until the end. This is his first medal this year, a well deserved gold medal. Congratulations for @Crolympic for your first medal and team Croatia for their second one ! Eventhough he began the contest in the lower part of the table, @Pavlo jumped on Day 4 thanks to a double perfect pick to 5th place. He swinged between 5th and 3rd and even topped the table on Day 8 before finishing 2nd on the last two days and taking silver thanks to one perfect pick more than bronze medalist. Congratulations goes to Poland for their third silver medal of the year ! @Pavlo is also the player with most perfect picks (4 perfect picks) @Federer91 had a great tournament he was on top 4 on almost every day of the contest. Despite finishing on the same number of points with Silver medalist, he got short of perfect picks, one shorter than @Pavlo. Though he wanted more, he ends up with bronze only. Congratulations @Federer91 and Bulgaria for their second medal of the year ! Another duet sharing the same number of points are @tuniscof (4th) and @Dunadan (5th) who were only 1 point short from a potential medal. @tuniscof lead the contest from the beginning until Day 7, the last part of the contest was disappointing for him since he didn't manage to take many points making him lose his position to finally end at the worse place, at the foot of the podium. It's being the same case with @Dunadan even if this latter wasn't always on the podium during the contest. @Dunadan and 4th place is becoming a love story in every contest Team Poland with 3 in top 10 finishers and Italy with 2 in top 6 have confirmed their skills once more Have you enjoyed this contest ? I hope to see more people participating for the upcoming contests ! Now please stand up for the national anthem of Croatia !
