Full Story On How Brexit Will Affect Premier League Player Transfer

  EPL clubs will be banned from signing international U18 players under new Brexit rules; Clubs will be limited to three U21 signings per transfer window with all foreign players subjected to points-based threshold. Premier League clubs are to be limited to three U21 signings each transfer window with all foreign players subjected to a point-based threshold to be eligible to play in the UK. Every player from European Union countries will not be allowed to be signed without a work permit while foreign players under the age of 18 cannot be bought at all as part of post-Brexit regulations, meaning Premier League clubs will have to wait to secure the services of top young talent from abroad.

The Apple's MagSafe Duo Wireless Charger Without Adapter

  Apple's dual, magnetic wireless charger for the iPhone and Apple Watch, the MagSafe Duo Charger, is now available for purchase. You can get it in Apple's online store for $129 or $10.75 in 12 monthly installments.  The charger was announced alongside the iPhone 12 in October, but for whatever reason wasn't available for purchase until now. The MagSafe Charger was made available at iPhone 12 launch for $39, but that one only charges the iPhone.  The MagSafe Duo is pricy — twice as expensive as the MagSafe Charger and the $29 Apple Watch Magnetic Charger bought together.  There's an additional issue, though. The MagSafe Duo Charger comes without a power adapter, which is sold separately. This sort of makes sense in the case of the iPhone, which Apple now ships without a power adapter in the box, citing environmental reasons. But the MagSafe Duo Charger is a charger itself, and it would be nice to get a power adapter with a charger. Apple says that the 20W power

China Attacks Pope Francis

  The Chinese government has faulted Pope Francis over a passage in his new book in which he mentions the suffering of China’s Uighur Muslim minority group, saying his remarks have “no factual basis at all”. Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian said at a daily news briefing in Beijing on Tuesday that  “People of all ethnic groups enjoy the full rights of survival, development, and freedom of religious belief.” But  Zhao made no mention of the camps in which more than a million Uighurs and members of other Chinese Muslim minority groups are reported to be held. Other governments,  human rights groups and The  United States, says the prison-like facilities are intended to separate Muslims from their religious and cultural heritage, forcing them to declare loyalty to China’s ruling Communist Party and its leader, Xi Jinping. China, after initially denying the existence of the facilities, says they are centres intended to provide job training and prevent “terrorism” and religi
