From countdown buzzers to triple punishment: football’s rule book needs a shake up 27.2.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
The game’s rule makers are meeting this weekend to discuss everything from using more video technology to bringing in a fourth substitution in extra time. But what regulations really need changing?

This weekend, then, they are meeting to discuss, and possibly introduce, significant changes. The International Football Association Board, whose continued existence is a cause and effect of the ...

India's tiger success story may be based on inaccurate census, says study 24.2.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page

Reports that India’s tiger population has risen by a third in four years are based on an unreliable count method says a new Oxford study

The accuracy of a recent census suggesting India’s tigers have increased by a third has been called into question by a new study.
