Football's (official) birth in Europe dates back to the 19th century, 1863, when rugby football split into rugby and football in England, with the latter establishing stringent rules. Clear. However, the distant origin of football is in ancient China, around the third century BC, in a game called "cuju," which was practiced as a kind of training for soldiers. They had to control the ball (which was filled with animal hair) with their foot, chest, calves, and shoulders.
The oldest football club, recognized internationally, was established in England in 1857 - FC Sheffield - still operating today, but at the amateur level. Initially, as there were no other clubs, the matches were played between FC Sheffield members; the criteria according to which the teams were formed were: married versus unmarried, unemployed versus employees, etc. In 1860, when a second club was set up in the same city - FC Hallam - the first club match was held every year.
The first football league was also created in England in 1888 by the president of the Aston Villa club in Birmingham and consisted of 12 teams.

The first international football match took place in 1872, between England and Scotland, in Glasgow and ended 0 - 0. The players wore "knickerbockers" (shorts) and hats or caps, this clothing detail (hat/hat) being preserved until the beginning of the twentieth century.
At the first club matches, the balls were not spherical. It was customary to inflate a pig's bladder, tie it at both ends, and wrap it in leather, giving it an oval shape. Also, the balls were lighter at first (340 - 425 grams), but in 1937, increasing to 396 - 453 grams. The first modern soccer ball was made in 1870, with an elastic rubber insert in a leather cover, an invention of Richard Lindon, who is said to have revolutionized the game of football with his idea.
The rules of the football game, established in 1863 at the time of its establishment, did not mention, until 1875, the existence of a crossbar for the goal, only the vertical bars. Therefore, to score a dream, it was enough for the ball to pass between the vertical bars, regardless of height.
The old tactics of the game were very similar to those of rugby today - the teams had strong attackers and, when offside, they attacked in groups to take the ball to the opponent's goal.

The fouls and the arbitrators did not appear in the initial regulations, considering they do not commit intentional "mistakes." Various events on the field could be challenged in discussions with the captains and then with the players. The referees first appeared in the area in 1891.
The penalty kick appeared in football only in the twentieth century and could be executed from a line 11 meters from the goal and parallel to it. The goalkeeper could approach up to 5.5 meters of the executor.
Until about 1912, goalkeepers could use their hands in play on their entire half of the field, and the goalie's suit could only be blue, white, or orange/yellow.
FIFA Chief Referee Ken Aston inspired the yellow and red cards at a traffic light on Kensington High Street in London during a walk as he thought of ways to mark warnings and exclusions in the game.
At first, the breaks between innings did not have a pre-determined duration. The break lasted as long as the players could wash, change equipment, have a snack, and drink tea before the second half.

In football, most consider that the greatest footballer is the Argentine Maradona, sharing with the Brazilian Pele the title of "Player of the Century" award by FIFA.
Most own goals in a match belong to Stade Olympique de L’Emyrne, Madagascar, which, in 2006, in the game against A.S. In addition, he scored 149 own goals.

The game rules were outlined in the mid-19th century to standardize the practices of a wide variety of similar games played in UK schools. Cambridge rules, identical to those of today, were created at Trinity College, Cambridge, in 1848, at a meeting of representatives of several colleges: Eton College, Harrow School, Rugby School, Winchester College, and Shrewsbury School. But they were far from universal rules. In the 1850s, many clubs were formed, independent of schools or universities, that played various forms of football. Many used their own rules, the best example being Sheffield F.C. (former Harrow School students). It was founded in 1857, and its rules led to the formation of the Sheffield & Hallamshire Football Federation in 1867. In 1862, John Charles Thring of Uppingham School created another commonly used set of rules.
These efforts led to the founding of the Football Federation (FA) in 1863, which first met on October 26, 1863, at Freemason's Tavern in Great Queen Street, London. The only school that was represented at this meeting was Charterhouse School. Freemason’s Tavern was the meeting place for the Federation for another five meetings, between October and December. During this time, the first comprehensive set of rules was born. At the last meeting, the first treasurer of the FA, who was the Blackheath representative, withdrew his club from the FA, due to the exclusion from the rules, at the previous meeting, two basic rules: the first was the one that allowed running with the ball in his hands and the second, the possibility of stopping the opponent by hitting him in the "whistle, by shooting, or by holding. Other English rugby clubs followed suit and did not join the FA. But in 1871, they formed the Rugby Football Union. The remaining 11 clubs in the FA, led by Ebenezer Cobb Morley, have ratified the first 14 rules of the game. Despite this, the Sheffield club continued to play by its own rules until the 1870s.
Today the rules of the game are set by the International Football Association Board (IFAB). It was founded in 1886 after a meeting of the English Football Federation, the Scottish Football Federation, the Welsh Football Federation, and the Irish Football Federation in Manchester.
In 1888, Aston Villa club president William McGregor formed the first football league in England. The original format contained 12 teams from central and northern England.
The FIFA International Football Federation was formed in Paris in 1904, and its representatives decided to adopt the rules created by IFAB. The growing popularity of the game led to the union of the representatives of the two federations (FIFA and IFAB). Today, their leadership consists of 4 FIFA representatives and 1 representative from each British federation.
Football is popular with both children and adults.

For centuries, mankind has created a history that has been passed down from generation to generation. The myths or the reality about the leap years that have survived so far make everyone think about this inexplicable fact.
What is a leap year?
The term "jump" in Latin has a numerical meaning - 2/6. It is scientifically the fourth year above the standard number of days (366).
The historical period of a leap year
During the reign of Y. Caesar, there was an additional day repeated in the Roman calendar, with a number (February 24).
The Romans counted the days, the years, according to the Julian calendar.
In the Julian calendar, every fourth year was considered a leap year, and the last two days of February were below the same number.
After the death of the Roman ruler, the priests deliberately began to appoint the third year - a leap year. There was a change in the annual time and people, for this reason, lived up to twelve leap years.
Due to the decree of the new emperor of Rome - Augustus Octavian, everything fell into place. It took sixteen years to get the "jump time" right.
Sixteen centuries later, the Orthodox Church introduced new changes to the calendar.
The head of the Catholic Church, Pope Gregory XIII, proposed to calculate the calendar according to the new rules. He proposed introducing an additional day in February with a different date (February 29). At the general assembly, before the coming Easter, the idea of the head of the Catholic Church was successfully accepted. The Roman calendar had a new chronology. In honor of the leader of the Catholic Church, she began to be called a "Gregorian."
The modern concept of a leap year
It is known that a year consists of 365 days. The next fourth year is considered a leap year. It's a longer day.
In a leap year, February is not twenty-eight days, but twenty-nine, but this phenomenon happens every four years.
Assumptions and superstitions for the leap year
Our Slavic ancestors believed that the leap year was a mystical, superstitious year. Probably the reason lies in the distant history of Saint Kasyan.
Saint Kasian served in the Galilean monastery and was its founder. He became famous for his writing career after writing twenty-four essays on "Interview," based on a moral, Christian attitude toward the faith.
The main flaw in Saint Kasyan's life was that his date of birth fell on the last day of February and even at the end of the year.
According to the Slavic faith, the last day of the year was considered the end of a severe winter. For this reason, the holy monk gained a bad reputation.
The superstitious Slavs considered the last day of a leap year to be the most difficult. They believed in evil spirits. Hence the fear of people before a leap year.
The signs of a leap year have been associated with Saint Kasyan:
- If Kasyan approached people, the disease would attack them.
- Kasyan was next to the animals - their deaths were inevitable.
- Where Kasyan's gaze falls, there will be trouble and devastation.
- The unsuccessful year is approaching Kasyanov - unsuccessful.
According to legend, in a leap year, there are many things you should not do, for example:
- Play weddings
- Plan a pregnancy, have children
- Create new projects
- Go into the woods for mushrooms
- Divorce file
- Borrow money
- Plant new seeds
- Make interior renovations
- Buying real estate
The approach of a leap year in modern society is controversial. One part of society believes in its negative actions, the other does not.
Negative side of a leap year:
- Natural disasters
- Military conflicts
- Frequent accident
The positive side of a leap year
People born in a leap year are creative and talented people. Endowed with a brilliant charisma, strong character, love of life (Julius Caesar, Leonardo da Vinci, Elizabeth Taylor, Paul Gauguin).
Today, a leap year is perceived as a year of disasters, wars, catastrophes. After all, the worst events took place during this period.
People are prone to believe something and most often evil. A leap year is perceived as a time of loss, disappointment, sadness. Is that right? Just ask yourself.
Leap year: where did the extra day come from?
Do you think that the Earth will make a complete revolution in exactly 365 days? No, it's not like that - the Earth makes a complete circle around the Sun a little longer, that is, 365 days and 6 hours.
In other words, an extra quarter is added each year. For 4 years, such quarters come out 24 hours. So, it turned out that a year that is a multiple of 4 (2008, 2012, 2016, the calendar of leap years is based on this principle) is different from the rest.
The leap year is intended to eliminate this surplus and to bring the balance into chronology. If it weren't for the leap year, then in a few centuries the new year would have been postponed to the beginning of March, and that's pretty serious!
Differences from leap year
The differences between a leap year and other years, from a material point of view, are limited only by the number of days. In addition, people need to work harder for a day. Sometimes, however, it turns out and rests once again, but this happens quite rarely.
Astrologically, there are a lot of problems around the Earth around the Sun in a leap year:
- everyday problems;
- man-made disasters;
- natural cataclysms;
- relatively high mortality.
However, one can argue with the latter - there are no comments from ritual service workers about the increase in mortality. Only a few older people die.
Year leap: Greetings from Antiquity
For the first time, the ancient Romans were concerned about the inconsistency of the calendar with the actual course of time. In this country, it was forbidden to transfer significant data in another season. People were guided by the movement of the Sun in the sky.
Gaius Julius Caesar solved the problem quickly and radically - from the time of his reign, people began to live according to the Julian calendar, which just added a day in February every 4 years. They gradually started moving to the new calendar, not everyone accepted it, but time took its toll.
Over time, the pagan calendar migrated to Christian culture. But in some regions this year he is associated with Kasyan Visokos, one of the saints, the patron saint of monasticism.
He is believed to have been drinking without restraint for three years, and at the age of four he gets angry and takes revenge in public for the fact that his birthday is celebrated only once every 4 years.
However, there is a discrepancy here - a Christian saint, by definition, cannot be a drunk, plus there is no record in the church that Visokos would like.
Signs and beliefs associated with a leap year
Now the leap year is relatively simple, and earlier some people were afraid to leave home on February 29 in a leap year. For example, there was a sign that if you get a good frost on that day, and the frosts can be severe at the end of February, then a person will certainly catch a cold and die.
The same goes for animals. Popular belief says that any mistake in caring for pets on this day can cost animals their lives. For example, malnutrition or overeating.
Starting a new business in a leap year, according to popular belief, cannot be very successful.
Surely everything will be ruined: even if a man builds a house, he even opens a business. In addition, all major cases should be postponed until at least February 29 - this time is considered the most unfortunate since the beginning of the year.
To calm Visokos a little, you need to do the following:
- under the bells, throw a glass of vodka from the window (another alcohol is suitable, but it must be strong);
- drink without glasses that shake when it is exactly midnight;
- If you still have glasses, then you should put the glasses on the table before taking a sip.
According to popular belief, Visokos' anger will diminish slightly before the completion of the next journey around the Sun.
Another interesting sign is associated with the collection of gifts from nature. Picking mushrooms and berries is usually difficult on February 29, but things found on the street, such as money, can cause problems if they enter the house.
And if the dog barks at the same time (a dog day on February 29 itself is a bad sign), then trouble is guaranteed. You have to ignore it while saying, "Hold me out."
Prohibitions of the leap year
Because this year is so unlucky, people have come with a lot of bans, noticing that you can remove the troubles from home. By the way, nature "participates" in these prohibitions as well.
For example, according to ancient memories, in leap years, usually a poor apple crop.
So what not to do in a leap year:
- You can't sing carols for baptism. This ritual in itself is relatively associated with evil spirits and once every four years it is especially "attentive" to humans. You better not litter. So, no matter how many sweets people offer, it is better to avoid carols.
- It is not recommended to sell homemade products. It is believed that happiness and wealth leave home with them.
- You can't show the first erupted tooth to a baby to anyone, except maybe your closest relatives. If the ban is violated, the child will have crooked teeth.
- You can't start a big business, including getting married. Everything will break down, as I mentioned above.
- You can't buy "coffin stuff". It sounds weird, but for some people in their old age it is the norm to buy things for their own funeral. Doing so in a leap year will hasten death.
- Women are strictly forbidden to dye their hair. This can lead to the lady becoming bald.
- It is forbidden to change jobs or places of residence. In a new place, a person will simply not take root, you will have to start from scratch (this point is sometimes impractical because there are different circumstances in life).
- Having children joins this forbidden group, but not everyone takes this restriction seriously.
Everything may sound archaic, but the fact remains - people often complain to astrologers and psychics about the misfortunes that began even after violating such prohibitions.
Conclusion - until the Earth makes a complete revolution around the Sun in a leap year, some activities should be abandoned.
The reason for the bad reputation of a leap year
We must recognize that if we did not have leap years, there would be a regular change of seasons. Therefore, they help to synchronize the Gregorian and astrological calendars and do not allow the seasons to change in other months.
But why a leap year is considered bad, you have to figure it out. In Slavic culture, there has long been a negative attitude towards such years. An additional day in February was considered the cause of disasters and landslides.
Perhaps the reason for such antipathy was that this time, on February 29, according to Slavic beliefs, Kashchey-Chernobog was subdued, commanding dark forces, sowing evil, death, disease, and madness.
Old Russians often associated a day of jumping with Cassian, who was born on February 29th. Based on the legends, where he was assigned the role of guardian of the gates of Hell, the traitorous cherub, the adoptive one of the demons, etc., one can understand why this character was very feared and strongly cursed. The Russians were convinced that Cassian had a negative impact throughout the year. There was a pestilence of cattle and poultry, crops were destroyed in the fields, and famine began.
On February 29, people once again tried not to go out into the yard, to keep cattle and birds closed.
It is difficult to answer unequivocally why a leap year is considered bad. Some scientists claim that natural and man-made disasters are becoming more common during this period. Many personalities are also in a hurry to cancel their individual problems for more than a year.
The following tragic events are historical facts:
- the collapse of the Byzantine Empire and the city of Constantinople falls in the leap year 1204;
- the bloody Spanish Inquisition began in 1232;
- the plague of the inhabitants of medieval Europe from the plague, in which 1/3 of the population died in 1400;
- the terrible events of the Night of St. Bartholomew in 1572;
- the terrible tsunami in Japan in 1896 and the earthquake in China in 1556;
- In 1908, everyone became aware of the fall of the Tunguska meteorite, etc.

The concept of fact-checking came to new media from traditional journalism. More precisely, from the principles of the editorial office: an editorial filter is a necessary condition in the technology of a journalist's work. This technology is due to ethical principles: independence, objectivity, impartiality, accuracy. Due to the observance of these principles, the trust of the audience appears and the reputation of the publication is formed.
A fact is an event supported by reliable evidence. Different people may have different views on the same event, but you can't argue with the facts. That is why the fact should not only be established, but verified, rechecked and “cast in granite”.
Therefore, distortion of facts is a crime against objectivity and accuracy. Worse if it is a deliberate crime against independence and impartiality. It’s very bad when it’s a deliberate manipulative construct.
In modern digital communications, the concept of "factoid" is becoming more and more relevant. This is an initially non-existent fact, which, being published in the media, receives a lively reaction and assessment. And they, in turn, affect the picture of the world and the actions of people. The truth is not that important, in fact, if the effect is real.

Bemorepanda is at your disposal so that every day the most interesting things reach the screens of your devices.
Top 100 interesting things from WTF Facts
1.A speeding ticket in Finland
2.Free people in Mexico
In Russia there is a famous story. This is very reminiscent of the episode of the cartoon about kolobok investigators, where the evil animal dealer Karbofos buys a porcelain elephant from a junk dealer, gets a certificate on him, breaks the now unnecessary trinket and says: "The elephant is bad, the certificate is good!" After that, according to this certificate, he leads a live elephant across the border. The rustic border guard stupidly looks at the certificate, correlates what is written in it with what he sees, and lets the animal across the border.
Likewise, people for the most part, following automatisms and stereotypes, trust the form, not critically perceiving the essence. There is a help - come through. On TV they said - it means the truth. Journalists won't lie! Even if the host of a popular talk show is in the frame, and not a journalist in the full sense of the word.
In the same way, various phenomena and events are actualized and legalized. Unconsciously or prudently, they are embedded in the form of "confirmed" facts in the information picture, as a result, distorting the entire canvas. This technique is actively used by propagandists, cyber fighters, network trolls and other manipulators of all stripes.
4.Support dogs in Zoo
The fact checker's main weapon is doubt. Professional mistrust, reality check. Here, the logic and toolkit of fact-checking largely coincides with the methodologies and technologies of scientific work. Moreover, a course on source study specialized for historians can raise the level of quality of a journalist's work with sources by an order of magnitude. Be it living interlocutors or material carriers of natural and artificial origin.
Newspaper ducks, gossip, rumors, speculation, factoids, manipulations, irresponsible and malicious fakes, technical errors and typos - all this scum is opposed by fact-checking. This is a powerful weapon, which, alas, is often not well known to those who work in the field of mass communications.
