IPL chairman Rajeev Shukla said on Monday that the BCCI respects Supreme Court’s verdict and will look to implement the recommendations made by the Lodha panel.”We respect SC’s decision. Will look into how we can implement the Lodha panel recommendations,” Shukla was quoted as saying by television channels.The Supreme Court accepted the major recommendations of the Lodha Committe on reforms in the BCCI which included a bar on ministers and civil servants being a part of the cricket board. It also accepted the bar on people above the age of 70 being the boards member but left it to Parliament to decide whether it should come under RTI.

Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has been banned from driving for 20 months and fined £50,000 after pleading guilty to drink-driving.The France international attended a hearing at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday after he was stopped by police on August 24.The court was told the 31-year-old provided a sample containing 80 micrograms of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath, more than twice the legal limit in England and Wales.

Messi and Argentina out for revenge after Copa controversy Best player in MLS? Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! An unmarked police car had spotted Lloris – who captained Les Bleus to World Cup glory in Russia on July 15 – as he drove his Porsche Panamera in the early hours, with prosecutor Henry Fitch claiming the player went through a red light before being stopped.Fitch also told the court that police saw Lloris driving at 15mph in a 30mph zone, and veering towards parked cars before correcting himself. Vomit was discovered within the car, and Lloris had to be helped from the vehicle by officers.David Sonn, defending, said Lloris had been dining in a restaurant where he received drinks from fellow diners.”On July 15 he was arguably the proudest man on the planet [after France’s World Cup triumph],” Mr Sonn said.”Just 40 days later, he was arrested. He experienced the indignity of being handcuffed and put in a police station overnight.”The spectacular fall from grace is not lost on Mr Lloris,” he said.The keeper issued a statement after his arrest, featuring a fulsome apology.“I wish to apologise wholeheartedly to my family, the club, my team-mates, the manager and all of the supporters,” he said.“Drink driving is completely unacceptable, I take full responsibility for my actions and it is not the example I wish to set.”The club stated that they would deal with the “extremely serious” matter internally.He featured in Spurs’ first game after his initial arrest – a 3-0 victory at Manchester United – but was left out of the squad for the following game against Watford due to injury.Earlier this week, Lloris spoke about the ‘mistake’ he had made, telling RMC, he stated: “Like everyone, I have my private life. I made a mistake. You have to accept responsibility for it. I have to stay focused on the most important things to me, the pitch, my friends, my family. I always want to go out onto the field to have fun and keep improving myself.”Lloris has been nominated for The Best FIFA Goalkeeper award, along with Chelsea’s Thibaut Courtois and Leicester City’s Kasper Schmeichel.Mauricio Pochettino’s side return to action against Liverpool this weekend, but it remains to be seen if Lloris will feature. Spurs are currently fifth in the Premier League table. Check out Goal’s Premier League 2019-20 fantasy football podcast for game tips, debate and rivalries.
ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit believes one major college football program needs a lot of help moving forward in order to seriously get into College Football Playoff contention.Unfortunately for this major college football program, Herbstreit is probably right.Washington State has just one loss and is ranked No. 8 in the country, but the Cougars still appear to be a ways out from legitimate College Football Playoff talk.Herbstreit says they need help.Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, Oklahoma, Michigan, Notre Dame and Ohio State, among other programs, all probably have better paths to the College Football Playoff.The ESPN college football analyst believes that Washington State needs some help from the Big 12 and the Big Ten in order to potentially reach the College Football Playoff. A loss from Notre Dame would probably help, too.If Oklahoma and West Virginia can beat each other once in the next couple of weeks and the Big Ten East Division champion loses in the conference championship game, it’s possible that Washington State could end up getting into the top four.Still, it’s probably a longshot for Mike Leach’s program.Herbstreit believes Washington State needs plenty of help moving forward and he is most-likely going to end up being right.
Story Highlights Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, on Wednesday (September 19), officially opened the region’s first Festo Authorised and Certified Training (FACT) Centre at the Caribbean Maritime University (CMU) in Kingston.The state-of-the-art facility, which will deliver international certification in industrial automation and mechatronics, is the result of a partnership between the CMU and globally renowned German training institute, Festo Didactic.The Centre, which is the largest to be established globally, has the capacity to train and certify more than 4,000 students annually.Prime Minister Holness, who delivered the keynote address, said the facility’s development is consistent with Jamaica’s commitment “to develop our human resources, so [that] they are second to none and to develop our institutions, so that they are modern and internationally competitive”.He noted that the world is on the cusp of the fourth industrial revolution, which integrates physical, digital and biological technologies, and the scope and complexity of transformation requires that “we must be cutting-edge and ensure that high standards are the norm and not the exception”.He said the Centre will ensure that graduates are “instilled with analytical and creative habits of thinking and an aptitude for discernment and sound judgement that can guide them through a lifetime of achievement and success”.“It is through equipping our human resources to be productive and competitive that we will attain the potential and will for positive growth and development,” he pointed out.In his remarks, Education, Youth and Information Minister, Senator the Hon, Ruel Reid, said the FACT Centre has provided the Caribbean with the largest cutting-edge engineering training capacity.“The CMU, as we all know, has already soared to national, regional and international acclaim… and now partnering with Festo… will bring the university to even higher heights. I am confident that this addition to the CMU campus will yield fantastic results,” he added. The state-of-the-art facility, which will deliver international certification in industrial automation and mechatronics, is the result of a partnership between the CMU and globally renowned German training institute, Festo Didactic. Festo Didactic Regional Director for the Americas, Dr. Theodoros Ktistakis, noted that the FACT Centre’s opening culminates six years of discussions with the CMU, and will provide training opportunities for young people in a “modern and motivating environment”.He said that the training and certification that will be provided at the CMU, through the FACT Centre, “will have worldwide acceptance”.“The training facility, which we inaugurate today, and the CMU’s team, which are trained and certified, are the guarantors that education and skills development correspond to international standards. Festo, as a long-time partner of CMU, will constantly support you and will be at your side,” he assured.For his part, CMU President, Professor Fritz Pinnock, described the FACT Centre’s establishment, as a “journey with a vision”, adding that “this is only the beginning, as we [will be] leapfrogging into the future” through the training and certification provided.Other key partners in the development of the FACT Centre include the PetroCaribe Development Fund, which provided US$402 million of the US$700-million-plus expenditure on the facility, and HEART Trust/NTA, which will partner with the CMU in programme delivery.

12 September 2007As the new school year kicked off this week in Syria, tens of thousands of Iraqi refugee children have started classes there with help from United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). Since early this year, Syria has been preparing to accommodate 100,000 Iraqi students in its schools during the 2007-2008 academic year, up from some 33,000 last year. UNHCR estimates that 1.4 million Iraqis – 250,000 of them of school age – who have fled the violence in their homeland are currently living in Syria.Laurens Jolles, the agency’s representative in Syria, said the Iraqi children there are the future of their country. “Many have already missed out on a considerable amount of their education, both in Iraq and as refugees in Syria. It is one of our top priorities to support the Ministry of Education to accommodate the tens of thousands of Iraqi children who want to enrol in schools.”UNHCR has several plans – such as transportation to other schools with space, temporary classrooms and providing extra funding to pay teachers’ salaries for school with double-shift systems – in place to aid schools overwhelmed by applications from Iraqi children.With the support of the Syrian Red Crescent, UNHCR has distributed school uniforms to more than 11,000 school children in the past two weeks, and aims to supply another 9,000 more in the coming months.“My dream in life is to be a doctor,” said 16-year-old Nada, who is attending school for the first time in two years. “I find it really hard to study in Syria – my whole life is disrupted. Although I wish I could return to my life in Iraq, I am grateful that I have the opportunity to study again.”She graduated as one of the top 10 students in the Baghdad region in June 2005, but her family fled to Syria after the murders of three of her uncles and the kidnapping of another.In July, UNHCR and the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) issued a joint appeal for $129 million to support the education of Iraqi refugees in the region, and they have also established an Emergency Education Taskforce to tackle the issues preventing Iraqi refugees from receiving schooling. By the end of this year, UNHCR expects to have given more than $20 million to the Syrian Ministry of Education, with that figure to increase in 2008.
HALIFAX — A Nova Scotia Supreme Court judge has approved the relocation of QuadrigaCX’s ongoing bankruptcy proceedings from Halifax to Toronto.The change of jurisdiction had been requested by the accounting firm investigating the exchange’s collapse, as the case is now largely focused on people and assets residing in Ontario.Asim Iqbal, a lawyer with Miller Thompson representing the roughly 76,000 affected users, says it was a “good decision” to handle the case in a more cost-effective way, reducing travel and administrative expenses.Accounting firm Ernst and Young had said that the involvement of several law enforcement agencies and regulators investigating QuadrigaCX’s downfall means the case will require multiple court appearances in Toronto.Of the QuadrigaCX users who lost money, 39 per cent were based in Ontario, 19 per cent were in British Columbia and 14 per cent were in Quebec, while 1.4 per cent lived in Nova Scotia.QuadrigaCX’s parent company Quadriga Fintech Solutions was granted creditor protection on Feb. 5 and entered bankruptcy proceedings on April 15.The Canadian Press

It built its reputation on princesses finding their prince, living happily ever after in storylines which set the benchmark for romance for generations of children.Now, Disney is to move firmly into a new era as it introduces its first “exclusively gay moment”, disclosing the new version of Beauty and the Beast will star a manservant exploring his sexuality. Matt Cain, editor-in-chief of Attitude magazine, said: “It may have been a long time coming but this is a watershed moment for Disney.“By representing same-sex attraction in this short but explicitly gay scene, the studio is sending out a message that this is normal and natural – and this is a message that will be heard in every country of the world, even countries where it’s still socially unacceptable or even illegal to be gay. It stars Watson as book-loving Belle, revamped in this version to be an inventor in her own right and wear riding boots instead of impractical ballet shoes.The beast is played by Dan Stevens, best-known to British fans as Matthew Crawley in Downton Abbey.Sir Ian McKellen and Emma Thompson star as a clock and a teapot, while Luke Evans will play Gaston and Josh Gad takes the role of a LeFou. “But it’s a step in the right direction and I applaud Disney for being brave enough to make it – and in doing so hopefully helping to change attitudes and bring about real social progress.”The new film, however, retain its central love story: the ostracised Belle and the cursed beast trapped in his castle and doomed to a life of loneliness.Speaking of the film’s central love story, and why Belle and the Beast eventually fall for one another, Stevens said: “It’s about that sense of persecution.“Belle is seen as a bit of a freak within her community, this girl who reads and invents things and is a bit too clever for the local Establishment. Luke Evans stars as Gaston and Josh Gad as Le FouCredit:Disney Le Fou sings about Gaston in the tavernCredit:Disney With lines like “For there’s no man in town half as manly / Perfect, a pure paragon”, some forward-thinking fans had speculated there may be more to their relationship.Their hopes will be confirmed when the new version is released in the UK on March 17. Josh Gad as LeFou in the live action remake of Beauty and the BeastCredit:Disney “And that’s what has its pay-off at the end, which I don’t want to give away. But it is a nice, exclusively gay moment in a Disney movie.”In the original 1991 animated film, LeFou is introduced as the hapless sidekick of Gaston, the swaggering ladies’ man who hopes to woo Belle with a series of ill-judged seduction techniques. This is a watershed moment for DisneyMatt Cain, editor-in-chief of Attitude In an interview with Attitude magazine, director Bill Condon said: “LeFou is somebody who on one day wants to be Gaston and on another day wants to kiss Gaston.“He’s confused about what he wants. It’s somebody who’s just realizing that he has these feelings. “And Josh [Gad, who plays LeFou] makes something really subtle and delicious out of it. LeFou is best-known to fans of the film for singing “Gaston”, a pub ditty aimed at cheering up the spurned hero. A brief clip of the film released online on Tuesday shows a flamboyant Gad singing his ode to Gaston in a pink neck bow and winking at his drinking mates.Attitude declares Beauty and the Beast “Disney’s gayest film ever”, with a “same-sex surprise” for fans.It comes after years of pressure from some fans, who have petitioned for more represention of the LGBTQ community on screen. He’s confused about what he wants. It’s somebody who’s just realizing that he has these feelingsBill Condon, director “It’s only a first step towards creating a cinematic world that reflects the world in which many of us are now proud to live. LeFou in his 1991 incarnation Dan Stevens and Emma Watson star in the filmCredit:Disney The live-action version of Beauty and the Beast is already on course to be the most thoroughly modern film of its kind, with star Emma Watson discussing how she made the role of Belle more feminist. The team have now revealed one character, LeFou, will experience Disney’s first ever “gay moment” on screen, as he struggles with his feelings for ultra-macho leading man Gaston. The full interview is published in Attitude magazine now “And Beast is obviously persecuted because of his appearance.”Watson added: “‘I think it was really important actually for Dan and I to develop and understand why each of our characters feel like they don’t fit in.“I certainly felt watching the original that I wanted to know more about why Belle feels that she’s different and why she wants to be different and why she’s naturally different.”The full interview is published in the April issue of Attitude, out now.

ASX-listed Hazer Group says its Fluidised Bed Reactor (FBR) pilot plant has been relocated from Sydney to Kwinana, in Perth, Australia, and the company is ready to re-commence its testing programme.The Hazer FBR pilot plant is now located next to the Paddle Tube Reactor (PTR) pilot plant, being developed by Mineral Resources in accordance with the cooperation agreement executed by the two companies back in December 2017. This pact covered the design and construction of a commercial-scale synthetic graphite facility, with Mineral Resources funding all commercial development and Hazer providing intellectual property and technical assistance.Hazer said Mineral Resources’ PTR pilot plant has also commenced commissioning.Hazer is undertaking the commercialisation of the Hazer Process, a low-emission hydrogen and graphite production process. The Hazer process enables the effective conversion of natural gas and similar methane feedstocks, into hydrogen and high-quality graphite, using iron ore as a process catalyst. The FBR pilot plant allows the company to trial the Hazer process.Hazer CEO, Geoff Ward, said: “We are very pleased that these important milestones have been achieved and we look forward to seeing the results from the PTR pilot plant over the coming months as we progress our collaboration with Mineral Resources to develop a commercial synthetic graphite production facility.“With regards to the Hazer FBR programme, the outstanding results achieved in 2018 have given us the confidence to proceed into front-end engineering and design studies for a commercial demonstration plant (CDP).“As previously advised, these studies have progressed well and are expected to be completed in April. We are continuing to work with potential offtake hydrogen partners, gas suppliers and project funders to bring together the first commercial Hazer facility.”The company is targeting securing all the necessary project agreements to take a final investment decision on the CDP by mid-2019, with a projected commencement date for the CDP of the December quarter of 2020.
According to a report from Diario Sport, there is a contract clause that could allow Juan Mata to leave Manchester United for FC Barcelona.Reports from several news outlets in Spain and England have been talking about Juan Mata’s possibilities of leaving Manchester United, his most likely destination is FC Barcelona but there are several details that we need to consider from this imminent negotiation.Juan Mata as we all know, is soon to be 31-years of age and he is already considered a veteran amongst his peers in the Red Devils.Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer recently revealed that he would like the Spaniard to stay but there are sources who are very close to the technical staff that disagrees, this is the case with former Sir Alex Ferguson’s assistant manager, Rene Meulensteen.The ex-right hand of the mythical Scottish manager loves Juan Mata, but he revealed that he may not be Solskjaer’s cup of tea for the squad and he may leave the club soon in order to “refresh” that position in the squad: “Ole obviously had a good look at the squad and he wants to play with a lot of energy and a lot of pace,” said Rene on 888sport.“Don’t get me wrong, I’m a big fan of Mata and think he’s a great player but it just might be that Mata doesn’t fit in the picture that Ole sees.”“That is obvious otherwise he would have played more often and at some point you have to refresh your squad in certain areas.”Juan Mata suena para el Barcelona ⚽Dale a ❤️ si te gustaría que volviese a la Liga.pic.twitter.com/4QhICFmbR2— RETAbet (@RETAbet) January 31, 2019After knowing this information that hits very close to home, all we had to do is investigate the situation further in order to find some more revealing details about the possibility of Juan Mata actually leaving Manchester United.Turns out that the Red Devils have a contract clause on every player when he first arrives, that allows them to automatically renew their agreement exactly one year after they have been in the club but that only happens once for every player and Mata has already extended his contract once.This means that the Spaniard has been free to negotiate with any club of his choosing since January 1st, which means that he can easily go to FC Barcelona and talk about the possibility of moving to the Catalan club where he can finish his career in style.The type of midfielder Juan Mata is fits perfectly with Barcelona’s philosophy, which means that signing the player would be a no-brainer for the Catalan club but there are other things to consider here.Vidic: “Ronaldo is the most professional footballer I’ve seen” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Nemanja Vidic opened up on how a 21-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo’s professionalism left him stunned at Manchester United.The player’s wage should be no problem as he currently earns a reported €6 million per season at Manchester United, a salary that the club has no problem covering.Juan Mata to Barcelona.Discuss. pic.twitter.com/T2IGg37Ly5— Goal (@goal) January 24, 2019This is where Diario Sport’s report from this Thursday becomes relevant, as Juan Mata has spoken to his agent and revealed that his options are to either strike a contract renewal with Manchester United or ultimately decide to continue his career at FC Barcelona.The Spaniard loves playing in English football, but the idea of playing for one of the best clubs in the world alongside Lionel Messi is also very seducing to him.If Juan doesn’t see Manchester United moving forward with his contract extension, he has already delivered specific instructions to his agent so they can reach an agreement with the Catalan club that can suit all parties involved in the negotiation.Given that the winter transfer window is about to close, this deal would have to be completed next summer and Juan Mata has no problem waiting for it to cook slowly.Barcelona would very much like to have one of the best Spanish midfielders in recent history playing his final best years with the Catalan club, his free-agent status and his wage would speed up the operation without a problem.All Barcelona needs to do is hope that Manchester United doesn’t decide to extend his contract, but judging by Meulensteen’s statements this is very unlikely.El Barcelona tiene a Juan Mata en la agenda… y queda libre en junio https://t.co/T0QcKhHuRp— OKDIARIO (@okdiario) January 30, 2019What do you prefer for Juan Mata, for him to remain at Manchester United or strike a deal with FC Barcelona next summer?

A shoe manufacturer says they are recalling a line of boots after a customer noticed the soles left a surprising imprint.A user on Reddit posted an image of his work boots with swastika-shaped marks the soles left on the ground, saying, “There was an angle I didn’t get to see when ordering my new work boots.”Polar Fox Boots had the shoes listed on Amazon as military boots, and the image soon garnered plenty of attention.“Hopefully, they’re at least the Reich size,” one person joked.The company quickly recalled the controversial boots once word spread about the unfortunate sole marks, claiming they were unaware of the markings until the Reddit post appeared.“That was totally something that wasn’t intentional,” Polar Fox e-commerce manager Anthony Nguyen told the Daily Mail. “It’s something that we’re going to pull off the shelves obviously. It was obviously a design flaw.”The listing has since been pulled off Amazon’s website.

The World Record Egg on Jan. 4 made its first post on Instagram, urging users to push its likes past the then-record holder, Kylie Jenner, for her baby-announcement post from nearly a year earlier. On Jan. 13, the anonymous egg broke Instagram’s record for likes, and at this writing has nearly 52 million.Given its viral burst into the internet zeitgeist, the World Record Egg’s first sponsorship would be worth at least $10 million, Nik Sharma of digital ad agency VaynerMedia told The Atlantic — and what’s more, he said, he would advise marketers “to spend on the egg instead of the Super Bowl.” Hulu appears to have done both.The World Record Egg account holder has not shared their identity. The person behind it has told media outlets only that she is a woman and is unaffiliated with any company or organization.Less than three hours after the Hulu-plugging football egg was posted on the Instagram account, it had more than 1.5 million likes. Popular on Variety Hulu is apparently the first marketer to, ahem, crack a sponsorship deal with the World Record Egg — the Instagram account that has drawn internet fame for having the most-liked post on the service in a matter of days last month.On Friday, the @world_record_egg account posted an image of an egg bedecked with football laces and cracks in the shell. “The wait is over,” the message says. “All will be revealed this Sunday following the Super Bowl. Watch it first, only on @hulu.”Meanwhile, the bio of Hulu’s Instagram account now says, “Get crackin’” followed by an egg emoji. Hulu’s Twitter account also is part of campaign, with a tweet that says “#EggGang.”Reached Friday, a Hulu rep said that right now the company isn’t commenting or providing info on the World Record Egg deal. The big tease with the World Record Egg may be related to Hulu’s purchase of a 30-second ad in CBS’s Super Bowl LIII broadcast. The streaming service hasn’t revealed any details about the TV commercial. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

Draymond Green is a throwback tough guy in an era where finesse and three point shooting, but Charles Barkley isn’t a fan. After Green went nose to nose with New Orleans guard Rajon Rondo in a trash talking confrontation before halftime of Game 2 of the Warriors/Pelicans, the broadcast tossed to the Inside the NBA guys and Barkley said he wished Rondo would have punched Green in the face. Barkley then added that he would like to punch Green in the face.You would think Barkley would appreciate Green for being a tough guy in a soft league, but clearly that’s not the case. Golden State won the game 121-116 to take a 2-0 series lead.Charles Barkley on Draymond Green “I want to punch his ass in the face” pic.twitter.com/zIyDNXV7e7— gifdsports (@gifdsports) May 2, 2018 Advertisement Following the game, when asked about Barkley’s comments, Green essentially told Barkley, do something or shut up.Draymond Green goes all in on Charles Barkley for Barkley saying he’d punch him in the face. 🥊 pic.twitter.com/HCmNCRWhWC— 95.7 The Game (@957thegame) May 2, 2018
Twitch Desktop App Final released by Martin Brinkmann on August 13, 2017 in Games, Misc – Last Update: January 04, 2018 – 10 commentsTwitch announced on August 10, 2017 that the company has released the Twitch Desktop application final for Windows and Mac PCs.The company released a beta version of the Twitch app in early 2017, and has been working on the final version of the desktop app ever since.Twitch, owned by Amazon, is a streaming platform; probably the most popular platform right now when it comes to gaming related streams. While the bulk of streams on Twitch show people playing games, the platform hosts gaming video logs (vlogs), creative content, and other (mostly) games related content as well.Twitch Desktop App FinalFirst, the basics. The Twitch Desktop App is available for Windows and Mac devices only. Twitch makes no mention of operating system or hardware specifics on the download page however. I tested the Twitch Desktop App on a Windows 10 PC and it ran fine.The application itself requires that you sign in to an account or create a new one to use it. This is different from using Twitch in a browser as you can tune in to streams without account in this case as well.The main look and feel of the final version has not changed all that much. You find the main entry points browse, library, mods and search at the top, followed channels and friends on the sidebar, and the main content in the main pane of the application.Browse is further divided into the four content areas games, communities, popular and creative.Games lists games sorted by popularity, e.g. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Hearthstone and League of Legends.Communities is a beta feature. It lists popular Twitch communities that you may join, for instance the Speedrunning, Chill-Streams, or VarietyStreaming communities.Popular lists popular streams that are live at the moment based on number of viewers. You may switch to recorded videos there as well, and filter by language.Creative lists streams that may be related to gaming, but don’t have to be. You find cosplay there for instance but also music, food or miniatures.A click on a stream loads it directly in the client. The default layout lists the stream and comments in the content pane. A click on the small left arrow next to the streamer’s profile icon increases the player size by hiding the left sidebar listing friends and favorite channels, a click on the right arrow hides the chat.You can browse other parts of the site while you are watching a stream. The stream is displayed in a small pop-out video in the app when you do so.The Library section of the Twitch Desktop App lists installed computer games. When you open it for the first time, a scan is made to find installed games.Mods finally lists game modification options for some games. Only a handful, Minecraft, World of Warcraft or The Elder Scrolls Online are supported right now.You may use the Twitch Desktop App to make voice and video calls which is one of the core differences to the web application. The web app of Twitch supports messaging, but not audio or video call functionality.Servers is another desktop application exclusive feature. Basically, what it does is keep a permanent home for communities open even when streams go offline.These (important) things changed since the beta release:Whispers have replaced private messages, and may be used to message friends and strangers. Whispers from strangers can be blocked in Settings > Privacy > Block Whispers from Strangers.Friends are shared on Twitch.tv and Twitch Desktop App. Also, status changes and the sharing of the status is shown on both platforms.App-wide moderation to block others.Performance improvements.New Dark Mode. Enable it under Settings > General > Theme.Closing WordsTwitch Desktop App final ships with a couple of features that such as voice and video calls or server functionality that the Web application of Twitch does not support. It requires that you sign in to an account though to use it at all which is a big minus.Now You: Do you use Twitch or another service?Summary12345 Author Rating3.5 based on 4 votes Software Name Twitch Desktop App Final Software Category GamingLanding Page https://app.twitch.tv/ Advertisement
