The German football league, the DFL, recently resumed on May 16, 2020, after more than two months on hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic; which was bad news for StarTimes subscribers.
As a strategic partner, StarTimes resumed broadcast of all Bundesliga matches live and exclusive in Africa right from the first re-opener between Borussia Dortmund and Schalke.
According to StarTimes Sports Director, Shi Maochu; “It has been a very tough period for football around the world. We are very happy to have StarTimes bring back live football in Africa, and even more, as Bundesliga is one of the best leagues in the world.”
He also noted that the league had been halted since early April due to the coronavirus pandemic and Bundesliga is the first and only major football league to be back in action.
Fans know to expect goals from Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski who has been exceptional this season with over 40 goals to his name, and Dortmund’s 19 years old sensation, Erling Haaland, widely regarded as a goal machine.
Premier League clubs-target Timo Werner remains in sterling form for RB Leipzig and would continue to disrupt the transfer market if he continues to score goals.
Barcelona’s loanee, Philippe Coutinho is set to miss some actions for his side, Bayern Munich, due to injury. All eyes would be watching Jadon Sancho perform his magic for Dortmund.
Where to watch Bundesliga on StarTimes
Catch all matches live and in HD on StarTimes’ 5 sports channels. Subscribe your StarTimes decoder now to never miss any minute of the live-action!
Top Bundesliga action going down tomorrow includes:
Leverkusen vs Bayern Munich (2:30 PM) and Borussia Dortmund vs Hertha Berlin (5:30 PM).
It has been 82 days since La liga suspended fixtures due to the coronavirus pandemic with 11 games left to play. We are all curious about where to watch the games to be played.
LaLiga announced the Spanish top-flight would resume on June 11 starting with a derby match between Sevilla and Real Betis. Matches would take place every day across five weeks so that the season can come to an end by the 19th of July.
DStv and GOtv sports channels would resume the league’s live broadcasts on SuperSports 7 for DStv and SuperSports 4 for GOtv. Subscribe your DStv and GOtv now to catch the action as e dey hot!
In the spirit of footballing excitement, here’s what to expect from the return of La Liga Santander:
Tight Race for the Title
It’s not over yet at the top of the table as Barcelona sits only two points away from Real Madrid. The men in white beat their long time rivals 2-0 at the Santiago Bernabeu to climb on top of the table; only to lose their position again to Barca when they lost to formidable Real Sociedad.
Sevilla remains in hot pursuit with only 9 points behind Madrid and one point away from Real Sociedad. 3 straight losses for any of Barcelona or Madrid within 11 games could hand the trophy to teams in third or fourth position.
The race is on! Anything can happen.
Games would very much be played behind closed doors and this would greatly transform the usual electrifying atmosphere of Spanish football.
For clubs with 60,000+ capacity like Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Athletico Madrid, the quite grounds would tell on players’ mentality as well as clubs’ finance.
For clubs with smaller capacity but powerful fan-pulled atmospheres like Real Betis and Athletico Bilbao, home games might be a bit boring to watch; not counting how badly this would affect players’ spirit.
Real Madrid’s Eden Hazard who underwent surgery on a broken foot in March and Barcelona’s top ace, Luis Suarez who operated his right knee in January are both set to return fully for the rest of the games.
The injuries would have seen them out for the rest of the season had it been the suspension never happened. Now they would play out the season with their teammates. The question remains: how would these heavyweights players influence the game for their respective clubs?

It will be quite an understatement to say that Christmas is very near. Because it is in fact here already. Just a few days more and Christmas would be knocking on everyone’s door. But of course, you are not just realising this, right? So, the fact that you are checking up on this must mean that one way or the other, you got too busy to fix Christmas into your schedule. And now, you have to hurry up to make Christmas preparations at the very eleventh hour.
Well, this is nothing to worry about. With the tips below, you will be able to get around to a wonderful Christmas celebration.
So, Christmas is coming just as fast as you need to settle those expenses on your neck. You can jostle between the two well enough with www.vtpass.com. VTpass is an online payment platform that allows you to make payments for your everyday bills. You can pay for your airtime, data, tv subscriptions and even electricity bills. Really, we got your back when it comes to bill payments. So, you can go on and make your final Christmas preparations.
Here are few tips that can help you make that happen:
Now, you are going to have an eleventh-hour Christmas celebration so you can’t afford to have your house all dirty and looking like a pig sty. But then, you don’t have all the time in the world to scrub everywhere clean. Well, you have two options in this case. You can either choose to delegate the cleaning of your house to some cleaning company or you can do a surface cleaning. This is more like doing a rub and shine. So that while you do not clean everywhere till they squeak, you can do a little work here and there to make sure your house looks homely and neat.
First off, since it’s already the eleventh hour, then you can’t do it on your own. You have to work with everybody in the family. This is to ensure that everyone’s needs and preferences are put into consideration. Again, you should delegate responsibilities to the people around you. While you do one thing, they can help out in taking care of other things. So yes, for last minute Christmas preparations, you may not have the time to do a secret party or throw some elaborate surprise. But then, better late than never, right?
Now, a late Christmas preparation isn’t usually the time to start digging out a very complicated recipe. Rather, do try to pick a menu option with an easier and lesser recipe. In fact, choose the very basic of all meals. But then, it must still complement the spirit of the season. So, for instance, you can bake a plain or fruitcake, and then, you can prepare pasta or rice with a very tasty meat sauce. There, you have a Christmas meal.
You know, when it comes to gifts and all, there is an advantage to thinking them much later. And the advantage to this is that you get to pick the right ones. There is some sort of anxiety that comes with trying to choose the right present to give to your loved ones. Most times, you eventually go all out to buy a lot of things but most of these things don’t come in handy in the long run. But when you get to choose under pressure, you apparently don’t worry picking the things that seem nice to you. You just worry about being able to give your family and friends something appreciable. And then quite surprisingly, what you feel is very trivial to them would eventually turn out to be something they have always wanted from someone else.
So, you don’t have to worry about how late you get the gifts. You just have to make whatever you get for your loved ones look and feel really special. And talking about special, do not forget to wrap the gifts as soon as you get them. You don’t want anyone peeping on them, do you?
Music, in general, manages to make anything come alive. Use this to your advantage during your Christmas preparations and after. Play your favourite songs and turn up the volume of your stereo. And then dance away with your family. This tunes up your festive spirit and makes your Christmas worth celebrating.
This is the real deal. No one, no season, nothing can make you happy except yourself. So if you want to get in tune with the festive season; if you want to crown your Christmas celebration. Then, you have to be happy. Eat, drink and be merry. Invite your friends and go out with a smiling face. And then, no matter what happens this Christmas, don’t let it get you down.
So, while you are out there living Christmas, do make sure to settle your expenses the easy way. With VTpass, you can make this happen. Simply log on to www.vtpass.com and you get to pay for your MTN, AIRTEL,9MOBILE, GLO airtime and data. And you can also pay your electricity bills as well as your GOTV, DSTV and STARTIMES subscriptions. And you know the most interesting part, you can pay your bills anywhere and at any time. So, what this means is that you can as well pay your bills conveniently during the Christmas and New Year holiday. Log on to www.vtpass.com now for a better way to pay your bills.
The world seems to always revolve around those it considers powerful and rich. And when it comes to power and wealth, one person that easily comes to mind is Jeff Bezos. Well, you might know Bezos as the founder of the world’s largest online retail company, Amazon. But there is actually more to him. And yes, there is his ‘resourceful, smart, brainy wife MacKenzie Bezos (alias Tuttle). This power couple has a lot of history hovering them which you would want to know about.
Jeff Bezos has an originally lengthy name which is spelt out as Jeffrey Preston Jorgensen in 1964. He was birthed by Ted and Jorgensen and Jacklyn Preston, who was 17 and with a rich heritage. After a year plus, Jacklyn left off her marriage with Ted and went for Miguel Mike Bezos. This caused Jeff’s panegyric name to simply become Jeff Bezos (not like it matters anyway).
Even as a child, Jeff showed deep interest in scientific matters. And all through his schooling, he pursued his interest. So that he went on to study electrical engineering and computer science at Princeton University.
After school, Bezos worked in the computer science field and also ventured into the financial business, international trade and a hedge fund.
1994 was the year when Jeff Bezos founded Amazon in his garage at Seattle. And the rest is history. Right now, he owns nearly 17% of Amazon. His net worth is $95.4 bill. At a time, Bezos briefly topped Forbes’ ranks of the world’s richest in July 2017, as his online retailer’s stock surged.
Bezo’s other passion is space travel. In fact, in an interview, he had when he was eighteen, he “said he wanted to build space hotels, amusement parks and colonies for 2 million or 3 million people who would be in orbit. According to him, ‘The whole idea is to preserve the earth’. And he has followed up with his dream with his aerospace company, Blue Origin. Right now, the space flight startup company is developing a reusable rocket that Bezos says will carry passengers. Even at this, Bezos has more ambitious plans for Blue Origin:
“We want to go everywhere, [requiring significantly lower launch costs.] Our number-one opponent is gravity. … The vision for Blue is pretty simple. We want to see millions of people living and working in space. That’s going to take a long time. I think it’s a worthwhile goal.”
Bezos exhibited an extension of his greatness when he purchased The Washington Post in 2013 for $250 million. Not just that, though, Bezos has contributed to the success of a whole lot of other companies. Companies like Airbnb, Linden Lab, Aviary, Google, Uber, Twitter etc. have benefitted from his funding. All these and much more are part of the Bezos Expedition.
And you would want to know that he featured in one of the Star Wars seasons.
Not many will know Jeff Bezos’ wife. But the few who do knows that she is physically, mentally and financially on point. First off, she is a writer of great repute. Her first novel, The Testing of Luther Albright, won the 2006 American Book Award. She recently published another novel, Traps, in 2013.
She worked for Jeff Bezos in 1992 at his hedge fund job. During this time, she fell for his warm laughter and asked him out to a meal. After six months, they got married. And then, they moved to Seattle from New York together. So Mackenzie Bezos has been with Jeff right from his beginning as the founder of Amazon.
Right now, MacKenzie Bezos is the director of Bystander Revolution, an anti-bullying revolution which she founded in 2014.
So pretty much, this couple is making some big impact on humanity itself.
VTpass, as an online payment platform, is looking in the direction of greatness. And surely, we are heading there with our forward move to make the world a more convenient place. Now, you can easily buy your airtime, data, tv subscriptions and electricity bills by logging on to www.vtpass.com.

One exciting part of childhood, you would remember, was having a piggy bank to throw in. It was a common trend amongst children who got stipends from their relatives. And it was quite a fun thing, saving for some rainy day which of course was nothing much. But then, growing up brings with it a lot of responsibilities. And we inadvertently find ourselves spending more than we keep. Well, every October 31st is world savings day. And we should take out today to reflect on just how and why we should up our saving flair.
So yes, we all do not hope for a sore time in our lives. But then, things happen. And what we have stowed away is what keeps us on our toes for those times we need that extra back up and support. But then, there are more reasons why we need to save:
To start up a business
For some short-term purpose like catering for a ceremony
For long-term purposes like building a land or house
And yes, you can save to take care of daily expenses. Rather than spending randomly, money can be kept aside to cater for your everyday services like phone airtime and data subscriptions. Also, other expenses like electricity bills and cable TV subscriptions can go into the daily savings. And it becomes easier to do this through the VTpass wallet.
What is VTpass Wallet
The Vtpass wallet is an e-wallet where you can keep and expend any amount of money. The most interesting thing is you can pay for services straight from the VTpass wallet. What this means is you no longer need to go withdraw from the bank to pay for the services you need. Hence, you can pay your electricity bills, DSTV, STARTIMES, GOTV cable subscriptions. Also, you can pay and get phone airtimes and data subscriptions through your VTpass wallet.

So, through VTpass wallet, you can keep up with your savings goal by keeping apart just the right amount you need to finance your daily expenses.
And here are other ways to keep up with your savings goal before the end of the year.
a. Cut down on unnecessary expenses
This is some tip that most people are familiar with. But only a few people follow up on this. This is because not too many people do well with change. It is quite hard to cut down on the few luxuries we allow ourselves like the extra packs of chocolate or home appliances we could just as well avoid. And we mostly get the feeling that these little expenses do nothing to our money banks. Now, this is the mindset we need to deal with.
2. Every little kobo counts
Now, there is the need to embrace the mindset that every little penny counts. Hence, we should be conscientious of how we spend and why we spend. And what better way to keep in this mindset than by making a list of what you need before you get on to buy them.
3. Learn to be forgetful
Really, the very best way to keep up with your savings goal is by forgetting you ever have money in the first place. This means you should stow away your money and if possible, minimise your means to access to the money. One good way to do this is by logging on to www.vtpass.com and registering on the VTpass wallet. With VTpass wallet, you can pay for your everyday services like your phone airtime, data subscription, cable TV subscription and electricity bills. And then, you can also save up the rest without having to touch it unless you need to.

A website is a collection of similar web pages made up of contents which are multimedia in nature. Normally, a website is also identified with a common domain name. And it is usually accessible on the Internet as well as the LAN. A website is meant to perform any such function ranging from personal to a public function. One such publicly functional website is www.vtpass.com.
This website emanates from the stable of VTpass. And it has been particularly designed to help customers make bills payment with ease and speed. Just by logging in to www.vtpass.com, you can pay for your phone airtime, electricity bills, data subscriptions and cable tv subscriptions. And it happens in just three easy clicks- Log on, Select, Pay.
And yes, if you are looking to take whatever you do in a global sphere. Then one good way to do this is by building a website. The advantages of owning a website are much more than can be imagined. It gives a lot of exposure to your business or whatever you are promoting as well as opens up a platform through which your customers can be effectively and conveniently served.
But what happens when your supposed website is so slow that rather than blow out your business, it keeps people away from visiting your website.
You would want to do something about this. I mean, it can do a lot of harm to your business. But first, you would need to know just why the website is slow.
Here are ten reasons why your designed website can be having hiccups:
TOO MANY IMAGES
Images are the spice of any website. They supply the aesthetical appeal to the techno feel of websites. But just like too many hands spoil the cooking, too many images also makes a website move from simply wow to very quirky and queasy. But not just that, it makes a website really slow. This is quite simple to understand. When someone’s mind is clogged with too many irrelevant memories, the very important ones might be skipped and issues might arise. So if you do not want to give your website a lot to think about, which slows down its performance, then avoid putting too many images.
WHEN THE SERVER PERFORMANCE IS BAD
Sometimes, the host provider can be faulty or there might be an issue with the server. There is quite nothing you can do about this except wait for the server to be restored to full performance. But if this issue occurs more time than you can bear, then you had better change your host provider. There are lots of options when it comes to web hosting services. For instance, we have Bluehost, Ipage, Sitebuilder and a whole lot more.
WHEN THE CSS (STYLING) IS TOO MUCH
You want your website to look chic and mind-blowing, so you tell your web designer to give it all it takes. In giving it all it takes, a lot of Cascading Stylesheet (CSS) efforts must have gone into use. Hence, you have all the floating fonts, the colourful styles and dynamic layouts. But the price you pay to get all these incorporated might be more than you are willing to take on. For a lot of this styling affects the website and makes it terribly slow. To rectify this, you might want your web designer to take a closer look at the codes and take down the things overwhelming the site.
TOO MANY VIDEOS
Similar to the use of excessive images, too much video uploads can also hamper the productivity of the website. This is even worse off as these videos weigh more than an image.
TOO MANY REQUESTS
When the visitors on a website are required to make a lot of clicks, enters, log in before performing any operation, the website becomes slow and finds it burdening to respond quickly to all the requests.
TOO MANY PLUGINS ON YOUR WEBSITE
This is especially for those operating a CMS like WordPress, Drupal and Jumla. Adding many functions and installing a lot of plug-ins can cause a website to take time to come up. Slightly related to this is the use of outdated CMS. Although this is not a regular problem, it is still something to take note of and check up on if your website is slow.
Imagine sitting in the living room and then needing a spoon to scoop up the ice-cream you just ordered. Because you are too tired or busy watching a soap to move your limbs, you tell your younger brother to go fetch you a spoon. Somehow, your brother ends up carting up to you the whole cutlery in the house. Of course, you are surprised, but your brother isn’t because he is quite sure that bringing the entire cutlery in the house was exactly what you asked him to do. He might be right or wrong, but whatever the case, what you got yourself was a bad query.
This can also occur with a website. Once a website gets to the point that the mySQL sends out bad queries, then that website is bound to be slow or even fail. You might want to consult with the tech experts to address.
TOO MUCH TRAFFIC
When a website is being visited a lot, then the website might crumble under the excess weight of visitors and start operating at a less than optimal level. This is actually a good thing, though. No need to worry about this, it only means you are one step closer to achieving your intended purpose than you were yesterday.
