    That's fine but they should also go harder against arab countries regarding Israel.

    No, it's anyone's choice whether to go or not. I know it seems really quite traumatic but from personal experience, I found it to be very healing. When my brother died some years ago, he was waked in our home and I thought I wouldn't be able to bear seeing him. But as difficult as it is, it was a real sense of healing, especially having neighbours and family there... it helps get you through the absolute shock and trauma of the situation. But of course everyone is different and everyone grieves and deals with it in their own way. So I understand what you mean with your grandmother and you remembering her as she was, was your way of coping and that's fine.

    IAAF changed their mind and reverted back to the old qualification system, World Rankings won't count (at least for 2019). Under the Doha 2019 entry system, athletes will be able to qualify in four ways: - By achieving the entry standard within the qualification period. - By winning the Area Championship in all individual events except the marathon, an athlete will be considered to have achieved the entry standard (subject to the approval of the Technical Delegate who will assess the standard of specific events). - By Wild Card, as the reigning World Champion, winner of the 2019 IAAF Diamond League or leader of the IAAF Hammer Throw Challenge, Race Walk Challenge and Combined Events Challenge (at the end of the qualification period). However only one athlete can be nominated per country under this clause as there is a limit of four athletes per country in total. - By being among the best ranked athletes on the IAAF Top Performance Lists within the respective qualifying periods (except in the 10,000m, marathon and race walks). https://www.iaaf.org/news/press-release/revised-qualification-system-for-iaaf-world-a

    Wait, do athletes of mixed relay push each other the same way they do in gender relays?

    Yeah I think it can also depend on the specific situation (apart from people being different of course). My grandma had been struggling with her health for years and it was mostly sort of a relief that she went out in a period in time in which she was doing relatively well. If someone is way younger and pulled out of life all of a sudden (an accident or something like that) it's an entirely different and definitely more shocking situation..

    For the purposes of the ceremony, you can hand over to Denmark. And if they decide later to refuse hosting rights then that's fine.

    In Ireland, the dead are traditionally "waked" for 2-3 nights in their home, with an open coffin and neighbours and family and loved ones come to pay respects. A man who lives near me (and the brother of my former teacher) once returned home to his own wake!! There was an accident and a man was killed by a car and they thought it was him! His sisters identified his body....but no it was some other man! Imagine his surprise and his family's surprise at the shock of him returning home during his own wake

    I see the IAAF have backed off using the as yet unused new World Ranking system for their 2019 World Championships - https://www.iaaf.org/news/press-release/revised-qualification-system-for-iaaf-world-a. This would mean they either use it for the very first time for Tokyo 2020, or more likely in my view they will return back to the qualifying times process they have been using for decades. There are too many criticisms of the new system as it currently stands.

    Bulgaria pulls out of the proposed UN regular migration pact. Other nations that will not sign it are US, Hungary, Poland, Austria and Czech Republic.

    They should simply have a rather simple rule: no events to any nations that can't or won't guarantee athletes from every single member nation can participate under their own flag.

    IOC tell International Federations not to award events to Spain if the Spanish Government cannot provide guarantees on Kosovo participation and prevent discrimination of athletes from Kosovo. https://www.insidethegames.biz/articles/1072170/ioc-tell-international-federations-not-to-award-events-to-spain-unless-government-provides-guarantees-on-kosovo-participation

    With joke song, im talking about songs that FOR ME are not serious for participate in the contest, being "bizarre" in some way, the song from Tunisia is funny but close to be a joke song, the indonesian is just funny and dont have nothing bizarre (making comparisons). This spanish song has a good music (mixed of some styles) but the singer is VERY BIZARRE and the lyrics are for moments dificult to understand for somebody who talk the same language (me) and dont have any sense, may be is a "methaphor", i dont know. When i show to another people, i have two reactions: take of that..... (bad word here)!! or laughs with WTF is this?, imagine i have 34 years old, the people who see this have more or less my age and they listen 80s music like me.

    Since the discussion is currently on TV Shows, if anyone wants to watch something AWESOME but still different from the well known American shows, try the South Korean tv show The Genius. Available here - https://www.reddit.com/r/TheGenius/comments/70jog1/links_to_all_subbed_episodes_of_the_genius_s14/ It is my ALL TIME favorite show and nothing else even comes close (and I watch a LOT of TV). It is a show about people playing different and highly interesting cerebral/social games, which should translate very well for Totallympians with our shared love of sport and competition. The only slight issue is that it's in Korean, means you need to follow the english subtitles. Every one who watches the genius has only 1 of 2 reactions - (1) It is AWESOME or (2) I cudn't handle the subtitles. But it's also the first show I ever watched with subtitles, so it's not that difficult and as long as u can handle them, u'll be in for a treat.

    I can't believe that it's like only a week and then we can start harassing Totallympics members again to enter the TISC contest
