Mesut Ozil is close to finalising an agreement to leave Arsenal as a free agent this month. The German superstar has been out of favour under Mikel Arteta since the coronavirus restart last season and was not even named in the Gunners’ Premier League or European squads for the current campaign. The 32-year-old is due to be out of contract at the end of the season, but Standard Sport understands his exit has been agreed in principle and is now close to being finalised so he can terminate his £350,000-a-week deal early.
As he prepares to end a tumultuous four years as U.S. president facing potential legal jeopardy, Donald Trump has discussed the possibility of pardoning himself, according to a source familiar with the matter. The Justice Department has previously taken the view that the Constitution does not allow a sitting president to be indicted, but a former president enjoys no such protections. Here is an explanation of the potential constitutional problems with a self-pardon and why such action would not end Trump's legal jeopardy after his term ends on Wednesday.

The Iqaluit beer and wine store sold more alcohol over the holidays in 2020 than the previous year — and the holiday rush left some residents waiting out in the cold. For the month of December the store sold $947,000 worth of alcohol — a nine per cent increase from December 2019, which saw $868,000 worth of product sold. Daniel Young, director of the Nunavut Liquor and Cannabis Commission, says population growth and the store moving out of the pilot project phase contributed to the increase in sales. "A lot of people have more faith in the store now being a permanent fixture, less people are bringing in beer and wine on sea lift," said Young. "And I guess another part of it is a lot less people traveled south for the holiday like we have seen in the past." In December, the beer and wine store sold 222,231 cans and bottles of beer. That's 6,464 more cans than in December 2019. The biggest difference was in the sale of coolers, increasing 41 per cent this year. For the month of December the beer and wine store sold 18,423 cans of coolers compared to just 13,086 sold in 2019. However, Young attributes this to the store having a bigger selection of coolers than they had in previous years. The beer and wine store also recently started selling three litre boxes instead of just bottles. Though the number of bottles and boxes sold was down from December 2019 the quantity of wine in litres was up. In December, 786 litres of wine were sold — an eight per cent increase over December 2019. Wait times over an hour outside But with the increase in sales, a line to get into the beer and wine store frequently went out the door and down the street. Many people wait over an hour just to get in the door. Young says they are aware of the problem with the line and are working on solutions to try and help, such as adding an extra till that would be used during busy hours. "The pitch we try to make to everyone is to plan ahead to avoid lines. There are times when you can walk right in, basically to the counter, and purchase," said Young. "That's not very helpful when it is already a holiday and you need to buy something from our store and there is a line. But that is the best course of action." Changes to come Young says they are limited by the size of the building but are looking at regulator changes. The beer and wine store needs to follow regulations in the Liquor Act. Right now, there are limits set on how much alcohol one person can buy a day. Young says raising the limit is a consideration but not something they were considering while the store was still a pilot project. "Some people think our limits are already too high and some people think they are two low," said Young. In June, Finance Minister George Hickes announced the store would become a permanent fixture. The store is meant to reduce hard alcohol consumption, encourage responsible drinking and combat bootlegging. Right now, limits are set so a single person can purchase up to 24 cans or bottles of beer or coolers, or up to four bottles of wine or one three liter box. Combinations can include two bottles of wine and 12 cans, or three bottles of wine and six cans.
