    A training partner

    With the various restrictions in place, it would be advisable to train alone most of the time. However, training in a group can have a positive effect on each participant, especially when there are similar goals.

    The return of sporting activities

    It is good to realize that the sporting arenas are now witnessing some activity, especially when everyone thought that it would take a year for normalcy to return. It could take sometime before the stadiums are full of fans, but at least we are in the right direction.

    Comedies this year

    I have not been keen on any comedies this year, though I wouldn't mind a few recommendations to keep me going. The Gentlemen seems like a fun action-comedy based on the trailer.

    The CL is back!

    The competition just got started, and it may be too early to predict how it will progress. However, I expect that the usual teams will reach the last eight. Bayern Munich, in particular, could be in this year's final.

    The biggest combat sport

    Boxing continues to be the most popular combat sport in the world, followed by mixed martial arts (MMA). Do you believe that the latter will surpass the former over time?

    What are the benefits?

    Did you know that action games can enhance attentional control? A 2012 study found that games (in general) train gamers to learn and shape their attention. Unlike what most people think, they can also promote learning and discourage negative behaviors.

    Best games for beginners

    Someone once suggested that mobile games like Candy Crush Soda Saga, Archer, and Dr. Meep, among others. It takes a while for the hands to get used to gaming, and not playing for a long time could make a gamer rusty.

    Favorite podcasts

    I am content-obsessed, yet podcasts have never been my thing. I know a few friends who listen while running errands, cooking, or commuting. Perhaps I could start with your suggestions?

    The popularity of gaming

    The pandemic has probably gotten more people to explore more options, and unlike in the past, you're likely to come across a gaming controller in most living rooms. It is a trend that will continue to grow in leaps and bounds.

    The Club World Cup

    I hadn't heard of this. Does this mean more teams from the different leagues? It would be more competitive if the draws got altered to include more clubs. We've seen teams from Spain dominate this competition for a long time, and this could change in the future.

    Most-followed celebrities

    Well, it is not surprising that Cristiano Ronaldo is the most followed celebrity. He cuts across the board, within or without football, as a sportsman, model, and endorser of brands. It would help if Instagram followed in Twitter's footsteps and got rid of the fake followers or bots. However...

    Fake crowd noises

    With an archive of about 1,300 chants and crowd noises, EA Sports is creating an artificial atmosphere during live matches. Before figuring this out, I used to wonder how there would be loud cheers when teams scored or boos when there was a controversial decision. How are you finding this?

    Murders At The White House Farm

    I just saw the trailer and spotted a Wade Williams look-alike (remember him from Prison Break?). I'd never heard of this until you mentioned it, and it should be an intriguing series to watch. When does it premiere?

    Name My Website

    You are on the right track, though I'd choose fictionforums or thevividlines because they are both catchy and easy to remember. Are all these names available? All the best as you start the website.

    Easing of restrictions

    Would you say that these last three months of the year could see more movement and lifting of restrictions? Even when that happens, how long do economists predict it will take to turn around the global economy?
