Dutch footballers will stand still on the pitch and refuse to play this weekend after a player was called a 'negro' and 'cotton picker' by fans

Ahmad Mendes Moreira

Footballers across the Netherlands will stand still and not play for the first minute of their matches this weekend after the reported racial abuse of an Excelsior Rotterdam player, the BBC reports.

Ahmad Mendes Moreira, 24, was called a "negro and cotton-picker" by Den Bosch fans, after which the game at the Van Donge & De Roo Stadion on Sunday was halted for 10 minutes.


Whilst players competing in first and second division matches in the Netherlands stand still this weekend, the words "Racism? Then we don't play football," will appear on screens in the grounds, according to the BBC.

An extra minute will be added at the end of the first half to compensate.

A number of Dutch players, including Georginio Wijnaldum and Memphis Depay, have already made individual stands against the abuse suffered by Mendes Moreira.

After scoring his first of his three goals for the Netherlands against Estonia on Tuesday, Wijnaldum held out his arm next to his teammate Frenkie de Jong's, and pointed to the colors of their skin.

Depay, who plays from Olympique Lyonnais, posted a number of anti-racism tweets after the incident, one which read: "I'm sick and tired to see these images over and over! When is it going to stop!!? #SayNoToRacism."

Mendes Moreira told Rijnmond that the abuse "hurts so much because it is so personal," and that it left him feeling "powerless" because there "is nothing you can do about it."

The Dutch authorities are investigating the incident.

Stephen Colbert and Trevor Noah's Daily Show picks some winners and a loser of the 5th Democratic debate
Publisher:  The Week
Thursday, 21 November 2019 06:04

Ten Democrats gathered at Tyler Perry's studio in Atlanta on Wednesday for the fifth presidential debate, and Stephen Colbert took The Late Show live so he could cover it. Sen. "Amy Klobuchar had the first laugh of the night," recalling that in her first Senate race she "raised $17,000 from ex-boyfriends," he said. "Now I'm sure you didn't mean it this way, senator, but technically, if they're giving you cash, they've not called boyfriends."

But Joe Biden had the toughest night, Colbert said. For example, he appeared to agree with Kim Jong Un that he's "a rabid dog who needs to be beaten with a stick," then he "emphasized the importance of ending violence against women, but with a really, really poor choice of words." Sen Cory Booker (D-N.J.) "had a little fun when he lit up Joe Biden," he added, "then Biden tried to brag about his appeal to African-Americans," awkwardly. Colbert sighed: "You know somewhere out there Donald Trump is going: 'Oh my god, I can't believe I risked impeachment over Joe. Someone please tell me there's a Hunter Buttigieg!'"

"The major change from the last debate is the rise of Pete Buttigieg," Trevor Noah said at The Daily Show. "Between Buttigieg, Biden, [Sen. Elizabeth] Warren, and Bernie [Sanders], this has become a four-way race — and if you include Cory Booker, it's still a four-way race." A lot of the debate covered familiar ground, he said, "but one new thing we did see tonight was some brand new beefs, like Elizabeth Warren versus Cory Booker on the wealth tax," and "Kamala Harris versus Tulsi Gabbard."

"There were weird, odd bedfellows, like Tom Steyer and Joe Biden going after each other; Tulsi Gabbard was like Yosemite Sam in a white pantsuit," political analyst Alex Wagner told Colbert, but she saw little of the typical Democratic "outright cannibalization." John Heilemann said he thought Buttigieg had a good night, Harris and Booker had some cable-friendly moments, and Booker and Harris both openly mocking Biden made it a bad night for Biden.

The Daily Show's Roy Wood Jr. actually spoke with a panel of black voters in Atlanta, and nobody dug Biden. Watch below.

Insurtech Research Report: The trends & technologies allowing insurance startups to compete
Publisher:  business insider
Thursday, 21 November 2019 06:02

Insurtech 2.0

Tech-driven disruption in the insurance industry continues at pace, and we're now entering a new phase — the adaptation of underlying business models. 

That's leading to ongoing changes in the distribution segment of the industry, but more excitingly, we are starting to see movement in the fundamentals of insurance — policy creation, underwriting, and claims management. 

This report from Business Insider Intelligence, Business Insider's premium research service, will briefly review major changes in the insurtech segment over the past year. It will then examine how startups and legacy players across the insurance value chain are using technology to develop new business models that cut costs or boost revenue, and, in some cases, both. Additionally, we will provide our take on the future of insurance as insurtech continues to proliferate. 

Here are some of the key takeaways:

  • Funding is flowing into startups and helping them scale, while legacy players have moved beyond initial experiments and are starting to implement new technology throughout their businesses. 
  • Distribution, the area of the insurance value chain that was first to be disrupted, continues to evolve. 
  • The fundamentals of insurance — policy creation, underwriting, and claims management — are starting to experience true disruption, while innovation in reinsurance has also continued at pace.
  • Insurtechs are using new business models that are enabled by a variety of technologies. In particular, they're using automation, data analytics, connected devices, and machine learning to build holistic policies for consumers that can be switched on and off on-demand.
  • Legacy insurers, as opposed to brokers, now have the most to lose — but those that move swiftly still have time to ensure they stay in the game.

 In full, the report:

  • Reviews major changes in the insurtech segment over the past year.
  • Examines how startups and legacy players across distribution, insurance, and reinsurance are using technology to develop new business models.
  • Provides our view on what the future of the insurance industry looks like, which Business Insider Intelligence calls Insurtech 2.0.
