Quick Tip: Add Social Media Icons

The Daily Post

Our blogs are just one of the places we interact with people online. It makes sense to link our blogs to the other networks we use — Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, Flickr, GitHub, and more — to share what we publish with our friends there, and to draw new fans to our blogs.

Giorgio Chiellini ruled out of UEFA Champions League final, no Suarez reunion


Interested onlookers, and Juventus, have been dealt a huge blow ahead of the UEFA Champions League final on Saturday in Berlin as Giorgio Chiellini has been ruled out through injury.

Earlier this week Chiellini said he would had no problem facing Suarez despite the Uruguayan being banned for four months and nine international games for biting him last June in a World Cup group game between Italy and Uruguay.

At the Idox Information Service, we like to keep up to date with the latest developments in public sector technology. Whether it’s what new digital services are on the market or which direction the government is heading in, we like to monitor everything that could potentially have an impact on our customers, as well as, of course, ourselves.

With the pace of change though, sometimes it’s a good idea to stand still and reflect. Therefore, we’ve decided to sit down, analyse the trends of the day, and produce our very own list of top 5 public sector tech trends.

Jack Warner’s revelations that “not even death will stop the avalanche that is coming,” have likely spooked FIFA officials across the planet.

[ MORE: All the FIFA news you need ]

The former disgraced FIFA vice president has promised to take down outgoing FIFA president Sepp Blatter and other top officials and claims he possesses documents incriminating Blatter in interfering with the government elections in Trinidad and Tobago in 2010.

Currently on bail in T&T and listed by Interpol as a wanted man on Wednesday following his indictment by the U.S. Department of Justice in their corruption investigation against FIFA, Warner’s address on national TV promised to lift the lid on everything.

However Warner, 72, previously promised to bring shame upon FIFA’s top officials in the past and had the following to say on the eve of the 2011 presidential election.
