Prem Talk Matchday 26

Photo from Creative Bloq CC-BY Welcome to Prem-Talk where we talk about what's happening in the English Premier League this week.  Looking Back: After the end of this particular matchday, we keep in mind that the end of the season is much, much closer than we think. The teams in the top three have a real shot of taking the League Cup. The top three teams are Liverpool, Man City and Arsenal, in that order. One of the best matches in this week was Arsenal vs Newcastle which ended in a solid win for the Gunners with a 3-goal advantage in the end. 4-1 was the final score. Let's go over the events. Norwegian international, Martin Ødegaard received a yellow in the 7th minute. This was shortly followed by an own goal from the Dutch centre-back, Sven Botman. Kai Havertz puts on a wonderful performance with an 8.5-star rating on Fotmob MOTM : Kai Havertz As It Stands:  Liverpool remains at the top of the table with Man City and Arsenal not far behind. As we approach the end of the season, it will be interesting to see what happens now as the final week is in 11 weeks. Looking Forward: Everton vs. West Ham (2.3.24) Tottenham vs. Crystal Palace (2.3.24) Nottingham Forrest vs. Liverpool (2.3.24) Newcastle vs. Wolves (2.3.24) Fulham vs Brighton (2.3.24) Brentford vs. Chelsea (2.3.24) Luton Town vs. Aston Villa (2.3.24) Burnley vs. Bournemouth (3.3.24) Manchester City vs. Man United (3.3.24) Sheffield vs. Arsenal (5.3.24) Leave a comment on which match you are excited about! TDM's Top Game Every Matchday there are 10 fixtures and our top pick for this week is the Manchester derby. It will take place at the Etihad on the third of March. With City winning 6:2 to Luton Town, with Haaland taking 5 goals and KDB taking 5 assists, we are eagerly awaiting for this combo to work their magic against the Red Devil this Sunday.

“The craziest thing that has ever happened to me is moving to Singapore, I just never really thought that it would happen cause I was living in America, and at first I didn’t know what Singapore really was, and I think it was pretty crazy, and it was interesting but I stayed there for 5 years and I was able to make good friendships so yeah.

Out of Bounce Episode 3: News Out of the NBA

Out of Bounce Episode 3: News Out of the NBA

So a couple of things have changed since the last time I wrote.  One of the things is that Bronny, the son of Lebron James, has been removed from the 2024 mock draft. This means that Bronny is predicted to go undrafted in the next draft. Bronny got a lot of negative comments on the issue to which Lebron responded, “Can y'all please just let the kid be a kid and enjoy college basketball." The King elaborate on X, "The work and results will ultimately do the talking no matter what he decides to do. If y’all don’t know he doesn’t care what a mock draft says, he just WORKS! Earned Not Given!” If you ask for my opinion on the matter, it doesn't matter what the mock draft says, Bronny is going to get selected because teams will want Lebron on their side. I think that the Lakers will end up choosing him just so Lebron will extend his contract. While Bronny isn’t having the best start to a season, he is now playing at USC averaging 5.5 points per game on terrible efficiency. You have to remember that most of the time he is playing point guard, which is the hardest position to learn, and I am sure that he will be back to his A-game after a short adjustment once he gets to the NBA. Something else that happened this week was a fight breaking out in the 4th quarter in the Heat vs Pelicans game. The fight occurred once Zion Williamson went up for a lay up and a Heat player fouled him. Naji Marshall ran to confront the Heat player because he thought that the foul was too hard. Jimmy Butler tried to stop him but before you know it, Naji was choking Jimmy Butler and a huge fight broke out. In the end, four players were suspended, two from the Pelicans and two from the Heat, including Heat star Jimmy Butler. Now for the play of the week, this is honestly one of the craziest buzzer beaters I have ever seen! For more stories by #Tom <----- click here Follow all the #outofbounce articles.

Japan Moon Landing: What Happened?

Japan Moon Landing: What Happened?

On January 19, 2024, Japan landed its moon lander SLIM (Smart Lander for Investigating the Moon) making it the 5th country in history to land on the moon.  Being launched on September 7, it spent four months on a journey to the moon. This landing is a big step forward in space travel as you will learn through this article. As I said before on January 19, 2024, Japan's space agency JAXA landed SLIM on the moon. Everybody was celebrating but then JAXA realised that SLIM wasn’t making its own energy. The battery was draining so JAXA decided to prioritize getting landing data.  And on January 22 JAXA said they had shut the lander on January 20 off just three hours after it landed with the battery at twelve percent power. Three days later, on January 25 JAXA got its first photos of the moon lander which were sent to Earth by two robots that were ejected from SLIM before landing. The picture showed that SLIM had rotated 90 degrees from the position it was supposed to land in and landed on its nose, preventing it from using its solar panels. Using the image JAXA speculated that SLIM could be reawakened when the angle of light on the moon changed. On Sunday the 28th of January slim managed to reawaken when the angles of light on the moon changed. SLIM got back to work which was to analyze minerals in lunar rocks using a special camera. While things were uncertain this mission seems to have been successful considering that only half of attempts to land on the moon succeed. This is a big step forward because it managed to get within 100 meters from the target location (at least from the data). That could mean more accurate moon landings in the future as more and more countries attempt to land on the moon. See more stories from #Ryotaro

“So I was at a sleepover, I think it was like 2020, I was with my good friends, and when they were playing on PS4, and I saw them rolling around, and I knew it was a core memory, and usually you don’t understand how important a moment is until it passes. But this was a rare time, I think, that I understood how important that moment was at the time.” See more stories from #Joris

"Dreams, determination, futility: I was a third grader in elementary school and had a dream for the first time in my life. At that time, I kicked the soccer ball with my friends for 4 to 5 hours a day and played with it every day as if we were eating. Among all of us, I was particularly good at kicking the ball. So, I told my parents that I wanted to become a soccer player, but my parents disagreed. But at that time, soccer gave me tremendous happiness and fun. At least, that was a part where my parents agreed. At that time, I decided to pursue my passion for soccer. And I trained alone for 5 hours a day. After three years of training on my own, I finally participated in a youth soccer competition for the first time in my life. I've been working hard so far. Every day, imagining hoisting a shiny trophy above my head. A whistle honked in the stadium, and my heart was pumping. Time stopped, the crowds disappeared, and my team, the ball, and I was the only ones left in that big, hollow stadium. After the competition ended, our team finished in 3rd place out of 10 teams. I felt very empty; it was like I had an open hole in my heart. My efforts for three years were not accepted the way I wanted. Soccer became very meaningless after that match. Every day felt monotonous." See more stories from #Hyunseong

MESAC as an 8th Grader: My Experience

MESAC as an 8th Grader: My Experience

Last weekend, many 8th graders travelled to the Middle East for the MESAC tournament. Personally, I just came back from Oman after the JV Football competition. Many of you may have already heard about MESAC whether you are a 6th or 7th grader waiting for the chance to participate or an 8th grader doing them. Well, whoever you are, I want to tell you that MESAC is such an amazing and fun competition. You meet so many new people, spend so much time with friends and have lots of freedom.  MESAC is a competition among six schools in the Middle East: the American School of Dubai, Dubai American Academy, American Community School of Abu Dhabi, American British Academy in Muscat, Oman, and the American School of Doha. I competed in MESAC football where, despite the fact that we got hammered and came last place, I had so much fun. Within three days, we packed in six games including one for 5th or 6th place. All the students felt the organising and quality of the trip was good. The pitches were absolutely amazing and looked like they could be used in professional matches. A highlight of the trip was meeting people from other schools. They were so nice and it is crazy to think that we will see them in tournaments for years to come. As someone who may do track next season, I was eagerly asking my friends, “ARE YOU DOING TRACK???”, as I am so desperate to see them again. So, if you are wondering whether to do a MESAC, trust me, you’ll have the time of your life. I think that everyone on this trip thoroughly enjoyed it and wouldn’t change a thing about it. Here’s a quote from David on what they thought about the trip, “I really enjoyed the trip because I had time to spend with my friends and teammates” - David Baig G8. I hope that after reading this, you will want to participate in MESAC.` Check out more stories from #Manu

Photo from Creative Bloq CC-BY We apologise for the delay but without further due: Welcome to Prem-Talk where we talk about what's happening in the English Premier League this week.  Looking Back: As we approach the conclusion of another eventful matchday, let's swiftly glance at the transpired events in our marquee clash! The highlight encounter (Aston Villa vs. Sheffield United) featured a decisive battle between two prominent football clubs, resulting in a comprehensive triumph for the visitors with a scoreline of 5-0. Now, let's delve into the pivotal moments of the match. It was a solid thrashing for the Blades with a disallowed goal making all hope lost.  MOTM : Youri Tielemans As It Stands:  Liverpool remains at the top of the table with Arsenal and Man City not far behind. As we approach the end of the season, it will be interesting to see what happens now. Looking Forward: Man City vs. Everton (10th February) Wolves vs. Brentford (10th February) Fulham vs. Bournemouth (10 February) Tottenham Hotspur vs. Brighton & Albion (10th February) Luton Town vs. Sheffield United (10th February) Liverpool vs. Burnley (10th February) Nottingham Forest vs. Newcastle (10th February) West Ham vs. Arsenal (11th February) Aston Villa vs. Man United (11th February) Crystal Palace vs. Chelsea (13th February) Leave a comment on which match you are excited about! TDM's Top Game Every Matchday there are 10 fixtures and our top pick for this week is Aston Villa vs. Man United (11th February). We are choosing this one as our game of the week because not only is there a substantial amount of Man United supporters but also a club which has a cycle of losing, losing and losing until a sudden victory and Ten Haf gets to keep his job then another victory and right when the Red Devils think they are in the clear, the cycle restarts. Aston Villa has been doing surprisingly well this season and has shown outstanding courageousness in some of the more difficult matches. Due to technical and logistical difficulties, there will be no Prem Talk Matchday 24 and 25 That’s all for the Matchday 23 recap, we’ll see you next time at the end of  Matchday 24.

Netflix: The Best Streaming Service

Netflix: The Best Streaming Service

Did you know that Netflix has around 260 million viewers, making it the most popular streaming service worldwide? However, many people at AES don't think it is all that great. According to my personal research, about 4 in 10 people have negative feelings toward Netflix, while the rest love it. But why is that? Even if the number of people hating on Netflix may be small, why does that number exist? Well, I know why it shouldn’t exist, and read on to know why. But first, a little bit about Netflix. From Mailing to Streaming Netflix was founded in 1997 by Marc Randolph and Reed Hastings in California after Hastings was charged for a late return of a DVD. They created a subscription-based DVD rental service that didn't fine for late returns, aiming to change how people rented movies. Customers could request a movie, and Netflix would mail the DVD. Only three DVDs could be rented at a time, and when one was returned, the next would be sent. In 2007, they added streaming, allowing subscribers to watch movies and TV shows instantly on their computers. This changed how people enjoyed entertainment and led the way for many other streaming services. Netflix is Best Firstly, Netflix is the best because it is the most affordable streaming service. Its basic plan, starting at just $8.99 or ₹199 per month, works perfectly for millions of people. This affordability makes it accessible to a wide range of viewers, no matter what their financial situation, which is rather important in today’s society. Netflix is also the best because it has a lot of diversity in languages and movies. Its large variety includes content from many countries and cultures. There are 60 + languages available for foreigners, which is statistically more than any other streaming service. Whether you're interested in Korean dramas, Bollywood films, or European thrillers, Netflix has something for everyone, as it includes movies from over 190 countries. Therefore, it is one of the most diverse streaming services out there. Furthermore, it is also the best because some of their shows have won awards. Take Nimona, for example. It’s one of the best animated movies of 2023 and was sure to become a major hit from the start. While it didn’t win any awards, it sure did deserve some and was nominated for many. Nimona is not the only amazing movie by Netflix. Netflix’s films have won 22 awards in total. This not only shows the quality of their films but also builds up Netflix's reputation. Even though movies from other apps may also have won awards, I consider Netflix to deserve them the most. Lastly, Netflix is the best because it has a lot of content to watch. Currently, they have around 17,000 movies, TV shows, documentaries, and original productions available on Netflix. Although Netflix does not have the most content, that doesn’t mean anything since it isn’t that far behind. Netflix still ensures that there's always something new and exciting to discover. However, some people argue that Netflix’s content may not have the best quality. And Netflix indeed used to value quantity over quality but now they’ve changed their approach. The article,  Quality Over Quantity: Netflix Reveals New Content Strategy,  states that Netflix has recently revealed that they are shifting their content strategy to prioritize quality over quantity. As the article says, “Right now, we’re not trying to hit a set number of film releases. It’s about ‘Let’s make what we believe in,’” Scott Stuber, head of Netflix's film division, stated. “And let’s actually put forth a slate that we can stand behind and say, ‘This is the best version of a romantic comedy. This is the best version of a thriller. This is the best version of a drama.’” This proves that Netflix is trying to improve, so any reason to dislike Netflix will soon be gone.  Before I learned any of this information, I used to prefer other streaming services over Netflix. It wasn’t that I disliked it; I just didn’t know this stuff and thought other platforms were better and more than they actually were. So, in all, the main reasons why I believe Netflix is the best are its affordability, the diverse content, its award-winning shows and movies, and its large range of content, as well as the fact that they are trying hard to improve.
