I heard about it on the BBC's Global News Podcast and it seemed that no one was terribly sure what was actually going on.

Apparently the first thing the absolute lad who made a break for it did was go to the pub and sink five pints, so I'm thinking the beer ran out and that was the final straw.

I've thought about starting my own cult. I'm already a quite narcissistic personality, and the thought of people worshipping me and throwing all their money at me seems more appealing to me than it ever should. Even if the average person will never be so gullible, all it takes is a few dozen people who are willing to blow their life savings on the prospect of eternal salvation, and you're golden.


Or maybe I'll start selling esoteric items on eBay or Amazon. There seem to be huge profit margins if you convince people that quite ordinary items that you can make from £10 worth of raw materials possess healing powers:

Government asks Queen to suspend Parliament

The government has asked the Queen to suspend Parliament just days after MPs return to work in September - and only a few weeks before the IIIWW deadline.

Boris Johnson said a Queen's Speech would take place after the suspension, on 14 October, to outline his "very exciting agenda". But it means MPs are unlikely to have time to pass laws to stop a no-deal IIIWW on 31 October.

The DUP have really stumbled into an amazing game with this. Between Northern Ireland seemingly unable to form an executive and their sway over Westminster they have simultaneously locked out any Nationalist voice while dictating the IIIWW process themselves and bringing home the bacon. There's urgent need for government in Northern Ireland but I guess not even they could've predicted how long this would go on.

Not that I really blame them for being prickly. They don't want a hard border over the Irish sea just as the nationalist community don't want one with the Republic only they don't have as many people fighting their corner and seem to be passed over as an inconvenience in Great Britain. It's perfectly legitimate, being British they don't want to be ruled from Dublin or end up as a proto-colony of the EU and unlike IrishPassportlad they're not willing to sacrifice their identity for money.

Thankfully for them, they're willing to sacrifice all sorts of other things for money, like their integrity.

I find it funny that the complexities of the departure and the general shitshow that arises from a lack of functioning government haven't really bothered them but even the slightest hint of a woman getting an abortion and suddenly they're desperate to get around the table.

/£$€¥/3840 Pensions
The OFT have come out and said that many old (i.e. set up before 2001) pension schemes have high charges and offer savers poor value for money. They've also suggested a cap for auto-enrolment schemes, but it's going to be an almost meaningless gesture as you'd be very hard pressed to find a provider offering auto-enrolment terms with annual management charges greater than 1% anyway.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-24153012

The pension scheme I'm in at work (contribution: 5% employer, 5% employee gross) has management charges of 0.6%, which I'm alright with as it's less than I'd get if I was investing in collectives through an ISA.

However, I've put the charges and contribution details into Invidion's pension calculator for an idea of what I'd get when I'm 65, 40 years from now, and if my salary increases in line with National Average Earnings and I took the 25% tax-free lump sum I'd be looking at a pension in today's terms of 27.5% of my current salary. If I wanted a pension that would be about two-thirds of what I'm earning now then I'll need to contribute, assuming the employer contribution stays at 5%, 15% gross (12% net) of my salary every year for the next four decades. This does depend on what annuity rates will be like then and I'd also be getting the State Pension, as long as they haven't upped the age you receive it to 80 by then.

If it wasn't for the tax relief and my employer matching my contributions then I doubt I'd bother and I'd look into other ways to support myself while I'm in retirement. What about you lads? What are your thoughts on pensions? In my opinion to have any form of decent retirement income you're at the mercy of your employer offering a good pension scheme.

Well, at least we can agree she felt better in DS9 where she served a purpose and had good chemistry. Much like the poster above you, I actually quite like her though. She feels like a real person, a big kid and hopeless romantic who is the stern silent types worst nightmare (Worf/Odo). I've known plenty of women like that, albeit it is the childless 30-50 something with unicorn shit all over the place.

I still think that it would've been better for Worf and Troi to end up together and for Mr. Woof to suffer an in-law who torments him but is good for his son. Worf in DS9 wasn't my cup of tea if I'm honest, he abandoned his kid and everything. What the fuck.

https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2019/jun/20/uks-porn-age-verification-system-to-be-delayed-indefinitely

>The UK’s age-verification system for online pornography is expected to be delayed indefinitely, just weeks before it is due to be launched.

>A delay could see the issue of age verification fall under the responsibility of whoever wins the contest to be prime minister, such as the frontrunner Boris Johnson.

>The age block was due to be one of the first of its kind anywhere in the democratic world. Websites that refused to implement the checks face being blocked by UK internet service providers or having their access to payment services withdrawn.

>Age verification was first proposed in the run-up to the 2015 general election by Sajid Javid, when he was culture secretary in the coalition government. However, despite coming close to completion the government has struggled with the details of implementing the policy.

So no, otherlad, the porn ban is not for real. And I have to assume the use of "coming close close to completion" was not an incidental one by the Guardian.

One of the UK's most high profile stock-pickers has suspended trading in his largest fund as rising numbers of investors ask for their money back. Neil Woodford said after "an increased level of redemptions", investors would not be allowed to "redeem, purchase or transfer shares" in the fund.

Investors have withdrawn about £560m from the fund over the past four weeks. However, it was a request from Kent County Council to withdraw £250m that led to the suspension.

At its peak, the Woodford Equity Income fund managed £10.2bn worth of assets, such as local authority pension funds. However, it now manages £3.7bn, according to the financial services and research firm Morningstar. Mr Woodford's firm, Woodford Investment Management, is also the biggest investor in Kier Group, the construction and services group which on Monday warned on profits, sending its shares crashing 41%.

Kevin McCloud at least should have recruited capable financial advisors to help with his scheme. You don't have to have a master's degree in business to be able to be the figurehead of a successful business venture.

Neil Woodford’s stricken equity income fund to be shut down

Neil Woodford has been sacked from his flagship equity income fund which will now be liquidated, a further chapter in the downfall of the UK’s most high profile active fund manager.

Link Fund Solutions, the income fund’s authorised corporate director, said on Tuesday the fund would be wound up by its administrators, which follows its suspension in June. BlackRock and PJT, the investment bank, will be allocated two parcels of the assets to be sold.

Link said it had been unable to reposition the portfolio into sufficiently liquid assets, and that reopening it would risk a fresh suspension.

He's thrown his toys out of the pram about being dismissed from his flagship fund by leaving the other two funds he ran.

I think someone has been in my car last night, judging by the glovebox being open and things from there and the compartment next to the gearbox being on the floor. I suppose it was inevitable, having a car that tucks in the wing mirrors when it is locked and a scatterbrained girlfriend who doesn't always remember to lock the car. At least there was nothing for them worth pinching.

I was about two-thirds of the way past a bus when it simultaneously indicated and swerved out from the stop, almost hitting me. Bus drivers are right cunts.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE. Use the whole fucking length of the slip road.

Whether the traffic is at a standstill or moving at 70mph, the slip road is there to give you time to filter in without stopping and match the speed of the traffic, or if you absolutely have to stop when there's no space, move to the end of the slip road to make space for the cars behind you to queue (and get off the fucking roundabout too)

Had to use my horn twice in two days.
First was a campervan driver who pulling away mugging like he was looking in the side mirror but due to how he was parked all that would have shown them was the Gregs behind him - not me coming down the road he was pulling in to.
Second was someone who was driving down the road and then just slowed down to a complete stop. No hazard lights, no signs of looking to pull over - just stopped in the middle of the road with no apparent idea someone was behind them.

If we were the other place I would have posted the usual 'What I have / What I expected / What I got' strip.
I had thought it would be another 'tales from the operating suite' kind of book. It wasn't; turned out to be a memoir of some fellow on his path to becoming a neurosurgeon, interwoven with a guide on meditation.
Its official site calls it 'part memoir, part inspiration, part practical instruction'. I find this description fitting.

I am constantly angry. I think it's a response to stress, anxiety, and sometimes disappointment. I've put in non-stop effort towards some big goals. Very rarely, it pays off, but more often it doesn't.

Recently I've been so run down that I'm starting to get stomach cramps. A few weeks ago, I followed a car around a corner and down the road because it beeped at me at a pedestrian crossing. Honestly I just wanted to throttle the driver. I'm losing my sense of humour. I'm becoming very cold towards others, and I don't feel fit to socialise. Work colleagues have begun asking me if I'm okay. I've picked up an old habit of shouting in the shower, and occasionally when I'm trying to go to sleep.

I do already have physical outlets like exercise, but I have a habit of overdoing it, especially during frustrating periods. I already have minor shoulder and elbow injuries from these last few months. I also don't know if it's a good idea to continue piling on cortisol -- exercise is another form of stress after all.

I feel like I need to recover, and for someone to care. But no one does. This is all private, and people would think I'm crazy or unstable if I bring up how I'm really feeling. People only care about your external performance. And no one cares whether you succeed or fail, or the effort you're putting in. They only care about the finished package.

You remind me of my father. Numerous times he has chased down fellow drivers because of some percieved slight against him. He once broke a mans nose because that man made an innocent comment to my brother and me as children.

Just recently my father actually sped up into traffic at a junction so he could be angry that someone 'cut him up'. I tried to explain to him that his decision to drive so aggressively caused a rift between him and the passengers of the car and asked 'was it worth it - putting your families life in danger?'. His only responce was an agressive 'I was right'. It seems clear to me that's his only concern - being right. He carries a lifetime of regret on his shoulders; it's like the weight is a stand in for justice, as though carrying such a burden demands respect. It's as though if he can just get those little bits of order it'll justify the rock on his back.

I often wonder what do we actually get angry about? Is it the slight or the disrespect? Have i actually earned respect? Did i show respect while throttling that guy who dis-respected me? Just who actually am I to demand respect of strangers?

I think noone cares about your achievements and efforts, and nor should they - not because they're without value but because they simply don't know. That's why being cut up on the road should mean nothing; they're nameless faceless - just like you. High chances are that you wont recognise them. A strangers insult doesn't have to hurt. They don't even know your name. And this is cause for laughter, if only at the situation.

Unjust expression of anger only prolongs the agony - slamming doors and smashing glasses does not grant relief, you're just adding adrenaline to the equation. As insignificant as it sounds, channel that rage into closing the door gently with exact perpose in turning the knob and catching the latch. If nothing else it'll confuse whoever you're acting for (perhaps even yourself). When you feel the emotion begin to boil, breath calmly and count to ten - close your eyes if you have to.

I don't know why this resonates with me.
I only hope I'll remember it once I find myself in another outburst again.

Right, lads, I've been invited to interview for my job now but on the other side of the world.

It's a niche job so the demand for it outside of my immediate area is low and the chance to move to the other side of the world is even lower. My quality of life would be much higher and it's practically double my salary.

The interview is with the team I'd be joining and it's on Skype really late at night. How do I not cock this up?

If any of you have done anything similar before I'd appreciate advice on:
-How to not make ymself look like a weird twat on camera (what do I put in the background, do I still wear a full suit etc)?
-How do I make a good impression when other candidates will be there in person?
-Is it weird if I stay at work and do it and explain to them that it's because my home internet is shit?

Any advice welcome, I really fucking want this job.

>Blizzard bosses reduce gamer's ban and release prize money

>US gaming publisher Activision Blizzard has reversed its decision to withhold prize money from a player who expressed support for the Hong Kong protests. Professional gamer, Ng Wai "Blitzchung" Chung, said in Mandarin, "Liberate Hong Kong, revolution of our age," on a live broadcast after a tournament. He was banned for one year and said was told he would not get any prize money.

>In a new statement, the company said: "In hindsight, our process wasn't adequate, and we reacted too quickly." The hashtag #Blizzardboycott trended on Twitter after the 21-year-old was banned, and some players tried to delete their accounts in solidarity with "Blitzchung". Even some US politicians commented on Blizzard's initial decision.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/newsbeat-50026401

It's fun seeing companies flop around in the face of Hong Kong protests after they've spent so long now kowtowing to Beijing. Who knows, maybe someone will question if having China so invested in our nuclear power plants might be a bad idea again.

It's not state enforced. Nobody cares. Sky News still has a feature on their front-page and still it's nowhere in the top most read stories.

I don't really think that's fair to say. They ran up English cricket scores against Russia and Samoa without conceding at all. Their undoing was Japan shocking Ireland, which put them at a four-point disadvantage in the first place.

I think this tournament has so far turned out even better than 2015, which I thought was the best in a long time. The crowds have definitely been getting their money's worth. Pools A and D in particular have been particularly heavy on action.
