Lorry drivers stuck in IIIWW traffic jams may cause rise in ‘dogging’

Ministers working hard to prepare for a no-deal IIIWW have been dogged by an unlikely new problem with 25 days to go. Officials planning to ease any congestion on the transport links to Dover have encountered the potential for an embarrassing issue: a rise in “dogging”.

At the Conservative Party conference last week, one member of the cabinet confessed that a side effect of increased congestion in Kent from stalled truck drivers would be an increase in the number of lorry drivers visiting voyeuristic sex sites in the Garden of England.

“One of the things we talk about in these no-deal meetings concerns hauliers and their activities,” the minister said. “The main thing is whether they will turn up at the Channel ports with the right paperwork. But there are also dogging hotspots all over the place.” Ministers believe the issue is more likely to flare up with British truckers. “Do Europeans even do dogging?” the minister asked. “There is something deeply British about dogging.”

This does sound like me.

Doorman in this context would be more like a host, or maitre'd or even the bloke outside Harvey Nicks wot opens the door for people, rather than a bouncer. I've worked in places like that. I have also worked in a 'gastrobar' that had actual bouncers, but posh ones in suits.

I don't remember being rejected from my own establishment, nor have I ever had my name above the door, at least not in a literal sense, with a big sign or anything. Certainly if you googled my name you would find it linked to certain West Yorkshire establishments. Maybe that's what I meant, or I was just trying to impress everyone here by implying I owned the place.

I was also on a lot of drugs back then though, so it's entirely possible I've either forgotten the doorman story or made it up in a haze of coke after being turned away from a nightclub I had nothing to do with.

It does seem like it was definitely me dropping these clues though, unless there was another Leeds/Yorkshire based chef on here two or three years ago too, but I probably would have noticed that.

I do remember the doorman thing. It was the pretentious posh bar/restaurant place, and the bloke was new. He wouldn't let me in, to go to work, and I kicked off. I think I showed him my knives, which probably didn't help, upon reflection.

I was likely off my tits too, so he was doing a good job by keeping people like me out.

Couple reveal they are hiding the gender of their 17-month-old baby to protect them from 'unconscious bias' and didn't even tell the child's grandparents for nearly a year

A couple are refusing to reveal the sex of their 17-month-old baby to their close family because they want to protect them from 'unconscious gender bias'.

Hobbit Humphrey, 38, and Jake England-Johns, 35, who live on a houseboat in Keynsham, near Bath, said they are currently dressing 17-month-old Anoush in both boys and girls clothes.

The married couple, both members of the Extinction Rebellion climate action group, are also asking friends and family to address the toddler using the gender-neutral pronouns, 'they' and 'them'. One of the child's grandparents said they only found out the baby's gender after 11 months, when changing a nappy.

Ms Humphrey and Mr England-Johns appeared on BBC One's Inside Out last night to explain their decision was the only way to stop people treating their child differently based on gender. They said the baby, whose name was changed to Charlie in the programme, will be allowed to decide at a later age on its gender and preferred pronoun.


https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7471323/Couple-reveal-hiding-gender-17-month-old-baby-childs-grandparents.html

This is like a Daily Mail wet dream. A couple of middle class Extinction Rebellion crusties with names like Hobbit living on a houseboat deciding to name their child Ankush and raise it gender neutral. It's borderline parody; if someone said this article had been created by a machine where you input a bunch of nonsensical buzzwords and it churns out something semi-coherent then I'd believe you.

Seriously, lads. Try to create a premise that plausibly crams as many Daily Mail boogeymen into it as this.

Trump Approves Strikes on Iran, but Then Abruptly Pulls Back

President Trump approved military strikes against Iran in retaliation for downing an American surveillance drone, but pulled back from launching them on Thursday night after a day of escalating tensions.

As late as 7 p.m., military and diplomatic officials were expecting a strike, after intense discussions and debate at the White House among the president’s top national security officials and congressional leaders, according to multiple senior administration officials involved in or briefed on the deliberations.

Officials said the president had initially approved attacks on a handful of Iranian targets, like radar and missile batteries. The operation was underway in its early stages when it was called off, a senior administration official said. Planes were in the air and ships were in position, but no missiles had been fired when word came to stand down, the official said.

Fireman Sam axed by fire chiefs for being 'outdated' and not 'inclusive' enough

Fire chiefs have axed much-loved children’s TV character Fireman Sam for being “outdated” and not “inclusive” enough.

Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue Service dropped the 32-year-old character, who is white and male, from promotional material after residents complained he “doesn’t reflect the fire service today.” Fireman Sam will be replaced by three new characters created in-house: fire extinguisher shaped Freddy, Filbert and Penelope.

Les Britzman, the service's Chief Fire Officer, told Good Morning Britain he was trying to increase female recruitment to the service.

Rape victims among those to be asked to hand phones to police

Victims of crimes, including those alleging rape, are to be asked to hand their phones over to police - or risk prosecutions not going ahead.

Consent forms asking for permission to access information including emails, messages and photographs have been rolled out in England and Wales. It comes after a number of rape and serious sexual assault cases collapsed when crucial evidence emerged.

Victim Support said the move could stop victims coming forward. But police and prosecutors say the forms can plug a gap in the law which says complainants and witnesses cannot be forced to disclose relevant content from phones, laptops, tablets or smart watches.

Director of Public Prosecutions Max Hill said such digital information would only be looked at where it forms a "reasonable" line of inquiry, with material going before a court only if it meets stringent rules.


https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-48086244

This seems like a worrying turn of events and the unintended consequence of the political pressure to increase the number of rape convictions spearheaded by Alison Saunders.

19851 Flyboarding Frenchman crosses English Channel
https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-49225001


Mr Zapata, 40, took off from Sangatte, near Calais, at 06:17 GMT on Sunday and landed in St Margaret's Bay in Dover.

The invention, powered by a kerosene-filled backpack, made the 22-mile (35.4-km) journey in 22 minutes.

Mr Zapata, a former jet-ski champion, had failed in his first attempt to cross the Channel on 25 July after complications with refuelling.

"We made a machine three years ago... and now we've crossed the Channel, it's crazy," he told reporters, before breaking into tears.

"Whether this is a historic event or not, I'm not the one to decide that, time will tell," he added.

One litre is always defined as 1000 cc, regardless of units of weight measurement. Water having a density of approximately 1 is just a coincidence.

Also, it's more a rule of thumb that water's density is 1. It's accurate enough for most calculations by and large, but the real figure for water at standard atmospheric conditions is closer to around 0.997 g/cc. And the litre as a unit of volume was not derived from the volume of 1 kg of water, but from the metre's definition of being the precise distance that a beam of light travels in a vacuum in 1/299 792 458 of a second (originally it was assumed to be one ten-millionth the distance from the Equator to the North Pole).

It gets slightly more complicated when you also factor in that water's density on Earth is only what it is because of the specific mix of protium and deuterium hydrogen atoms contained in it. It might be different on other planets where the protium-deuterium relation in the local water is different. Deuterium-enriched water here on Earth is known as heavy water, with a density of around 1.107 g/cc, and it's what is used in some reactor designs of nuclear power stations.

Spanish scientists create human-monkey chimera in China

Researchers led by Spanish scientist Juan Carlos Izpisúa have created for the first time a human-monkey hybrid in a laboratory in China – an important step towards using animals for human organ transplants, project collaborator Estrella Núñez confirmed to EL PAÍS.

The team, made up of members of the Salk Institute in the United States and the Murcia Catholic University (UCAM) in Spain, genetically modified monkey embryos to deactivate genes that are essential to the formation of organs. The scientists then injected human stem cells, which are capable of creating any type of tissue, into the embryo. The product of this work is a monkey with human cells that has not been born, because researchers stopped the process. The experiment took place in China to avoid legal issues

Throw in tight controls on information, and the fact that the executions themselves are carried out behind closed doors, and it would be easy to force someone into medical experimentation without anyone knowing. As far as family or fellow inmates are concerned, they were taken away and executed, and their remains disposed of.

The ones in China aren't been kept alive long enough to grow organs. In Japan they're going to try and grow mice-human organs.

Golly, I suppose those folks in Old Cathay are just so civic minded they don't mind handing them over once they're gone.

Govia Thameslink fined £1m over Gatwick Express window death

A rail firm has been fined £1m after a man died leaning out of a train window. Simon Brown, 24, was killed when he hit his head on a steel gantry on the side of the track while on the Gatwick Express in London in August 2016.

In May, Govia Thameslink Railway admitted a health and safety breach because a sign saying not to lean out was not displayed clearly enough.

I can see why the rest of Europe takes the piss out of us for having signs everywhere infantilising us. Fined because someone is stupid enough to stick their head out of a train window, fuck me.

It is really starting to sound like they've arrested the wrong people.

Trying to work out if $500 would get me a nicer kit of parts elsewhere, though, or if NXP are subsidising it a bit.
I've got a couple of toy ones, fancy something a bit bigger and more stable to dick about with.

That's designed for semi-autonomous or fully-autonomous use; if you just want to fly by remote control, there are cheaper and better options. Maybe something like a Diatone M540 and an FrSky Q X7 would suit.

I have one of these for my drones, they're excellent value, and very fixable/customisable.

Hunt for ‘book ripper’ tearing up dozens of Herne Bay Demelza charity shop novels

A mystery vandal has been tearing up dozens of books at a charity shop.

As many as 15 paperbacks a week have had their pages ripped in half at the Demelza store in Mortimer Street, Herne Bay.

The callous bibliophobe - dubbed "the book ripper" by customers - has been targetting sections out of sight from staff since April. Store manager Nick Rogers says the slippery perpetrator tears the pages horizontally before putting them back on the shelf.

Shop workers have erected signs to try to deter the sneaky saboteur - but so far this has been ineffective.

A number of books at Herne Bay Library in the High Street have also been damaged over the last six months. Staff members have not identified a pattern to the vandalism as the defaced paperbacks have been from a variety of sections.

It seems that crab killer has moved on to ripping books. Who knows what other dastardly deeds he will move onto next. The coast is not safe.

I had previously unquestioningly assumed that people with bookcases like the one pictured had vast or at least better than average general knowledge, but I've since learnt some of them have the kind of knowledge gaps you'd expect from a council estate kid who stopped attending school at 13. Maybe that's what happens if you engross yourself in fiction.

I wasn't aware that supermarkets lent you food and reserved the right to come into your home and take it away from you for any reason.

A lot of people have bookcases for aesthetic purposes. I'd wager that I haven't read even half of what are on mine, but that's because I buy them faster than I can read them.
