VIDEOS & ARTICLES — Friday 25.10.2013

Some interesting Videos & Articles for your weekend viewing/reading

Please feel free to FORWARD again to all colleagues/friends/RA members

I am grateful to those from the UK AND ABROAD who continue to send me BLUE LINKS that can be used.
I look for Videos & Articles but there are always some I miss.

There is not much news FOR REFEREES in the national newspapers.
So I aim to send out about 16-18 links each week that might be of interest to referees.
Many thanks to those who have BLOCKS OF EMAIL ADDRESSES and who forward them to colleagues/friends.
The weekly Videos & Articles newsletter does not go to hundreds but to thousands worldwide as a result.
