19641 Ambassador Spat

>Sir Kim Darroch has resigned as UK ambassador to the US, amid a row over leaked emails critical of President Trump's administration.

>The ambassador said he wanted to put an end to speculation, adding the leak had made it "impossible" to do his job.

>Theresa May said it was a "matter of great regret" that Sir Kim felt the need to resign, saying officials needed to be able to give "full and frank advice".

This whole situation has been pathetic. How long before Johnson is literally kowtowing to the Trump dynasty I wonder?

One of the key points of an embassy is that people can tell the candid truth about what the government there is like. The problem here isn't that he said anything wrong, he didn't he told the truth as he sees it, which is the whole point of his job. The problem is that Trump is the kind of petty fuck who wouldn't allow him to do his job properly after this.

But the problem isn't just Trump, the problem is the servile Tories who were making exclaimations in the glory of Trump. This could have been an unfortunate incident, but instead it has become a tragedy. One that announces to the world that the UK is this easily bullied and browbeaten, and for doing nothing more than telling the truth, a truth evident to anyone who's looked at a headline or two in past three years.

I never hated the Tories before this year, I never liked them much either but there we have it. However, they have made every attempt available to them in 2019 to undermine, shame and hobble the United Kingdom, and not for any misguided ideological reasons, but out of sheer arrogance and self-interest. If I read a headline that every single one of their MPs had collapsed dead in parliament I don't think I'd even bother reading the article, I'd just knod in acknowledgement and move on.

Chinese and Indian ethnic group workers have higher average earnings than their white British counterparts, the first official figures on the issue show.

In 2018, employees from the Chinese ethnic group earned 30.9% more than white British employees.

Although >>19617 is a good post they have left out several key events as motivators.

1) The largest migration of black immigrants to the country was from the "Windrush generation" which is where we purposely incentivized for manual laborer to come over from the Caribbean.

2)A large number of Indian Migrants were linked to the British Raj in some way so bureaucrats, various people related to the state. And those who had some level of existing integration with the British rulling class.

3)A large number of Chinese immigrants came over when Mao started culling the intelligentsia and bureaucracy.

We also had another wave of Chinese immigration around the handover of Hong Kong. Again it was mainly the liberal intelligentsia who saw the writing on the wall. The reason the elite classes in Hong Kong are now pro-Beijing is that they've effectively been hollowed out, which in turn has made it easier for the CPC to rig the system. The legislature is like the Lords and Commons rolled into one, with a mixture of elected and appointed members. The pro-Beijing faction has never won an electoral mandate, and has instead been able to maintain a majority by manipulating the numbers and packing the benches with appointees.

I'm not surprised. £2.50 I paid last night for prawn crackers.

I feel the need to add to your points that Bangladeshi and laplanderstani immigrants also tended to migrate towards the industrial centres of Britain. The result is they were hit especially hard by de-industrialisation and the effect continues as ethnic groups tend toward lumping together.

Obviously the solution is to breakup ethnic enclaves and probably let in more Asians as they're an okay sort.

Your average generic curry house/shit kebabs/shit pizza takeaway offers free delivery over £10. All the Chinese takeaways round here want £3 for delivery no matter what. And that's after they're done charging you £6-7 per dish for a generic stir fry in various different sauces.

They're robbing fucking bastards.

19592 Colchester barracks: Paratrooper 'shocked' by 'racist abuse'

> Hani Gue told the tribunal he saw Nazi, Confederate and SS flags and photographs of Adolf Hitler displayed in accommodation at Colchester.

> Mr Gue, who changed his eskimo surname of Hassan for fear that it could make him more likely to be a target, said racism was "prevalent in 3 Para and A Company in particular" and often passed off as "banter".

> He also said photographs of himself and Mr Zulu, from South Africa, were pinned to the door of his room daubed with swastikas, Hitler moustaches and racist language.

> Mr Gue, who asked to leave the Army in January last year, said: "During the course of my employment I noticed that there were Nazi, Confederate and SS flags and photographs of Hitler displayed in A Company's accommodation which is a stone's throw away from the battalion headquarters."

> He said the alleged abuse, which included people smashing bottles and urinating in the corridor where he was staying, had "an extreme psychological impact" on him.

> He added: "Unfortunately, my experiences of racial harassment and discrimination during the course of my employment have led me to realise that the Army is not the honourable institution I once thought it to be."

I should've made a career out of the army when I had the chance. It sounds like a fun time.

19578 Boeing's 737 Max Software Outsourced to $9-an-Hour Engineers

It remains the mystery at the heart of Boeing Co.’s 737 Max crisis: how a company renowned for meticulous design made seemingly basic software mistakes leading to a pair of deadly crashes. Longtime Boeing engineers say the effort was complicated by a push to outsource work to lower-paid contractors.

The Max software -- plagued by issues that could keep the planes grounded months longer after U.S. regulators this week revealed a new flaw -- was developed at a time Boeing was laying off experienced engineers and pressing suppliers to cut costs.

Increasingly, the iconic American planemaker and its subcontractors have relied on temporary workers making as little as $9 an hour to develop and test software, often from countries lacking a deep background in aerospace -- notably India.

19504 Instagram couple beg for £9k holiday

Instagram couple beg for £9k holiday while mum funds their lifestyle with two jobs

Because neither of them have a job - instead relying on Catalin's mother to fund their lifestyle by working two jobs - they have turned to the public for financial support.

On a GoFundMe page they have set their sights high, asking for €10,000 (£8,907) to embark on the trip.

According to Catalin and Elena the adventure is worthy of external funding because of the positive impact it would have on their Instagram followers.

"We could write a long text about mental health or global warming," they explain on the fundraising page.

"We could tell you about following your dreams, or how important stepping out of your comfort zone is."

"We could tell you how beautiful traveling is, and it’s benefits, or the fact that most news don’t match reality."

19488 Electrical failure cuts power to all of Argentina and Uruguay

A massive electrical failure has left all of Argentina and Uruguay without power, according to a major Argentine electricity provider.

Reports said the power cut had also affected parts of Brazil and Paraguay.

Argentine media said the power cut occurred shortly after 07:00 (11:00 BST), causing trains to be halted and failures with traffic signalling.

It came as people in parts of Argentina were preparing to go to the polls for local elections.

"A massive failure in the electrical interconnection system left all of Argentina and Uruguay without power," electricity supplier company Edesur said in a tweet.

The country's energy secretary, Gustavo Lopetegui, said the causes for the system failure had not yet been determined. He said power was being restored to some parts of the country, but added that the process could take several hours.

Well normally you don't hear about it because of cold and hot redundancy. "Hot" redundancy means that several power stations run parallel and one can take most of the power load of the other if it shuts down without most people noticing. "Cold" redundancy means that other power stations or reactors can be switched onto the grid momentarily if there is a fault or failure at another point of the grid. So ideally, there is never really a power outage as such, or at least you don't notice it during the few milliseconds that your light bulb at home doesn't have power.

Safety shutdowns are a different problem. Parts of the grid can shut down if a catastrophic fault in one element of the grid is detected that makes it necessary that other parts of it shut down as well to prevent damage. It's one angle of attack to shut down an entire power grid that way. Or alternatively, you can take control of all power stations and shut them down in a controlled fashion. The latter should be a bit more difficult though, because there's naturally a difference between hacking one power station and hacking all of them.

FTI Consulting has now been appointed as administrators for the chain, whose shops will continue trading for now. Debenhams is expected to close 50 of its 165 stores in the future, but no timescale has been announced yet.


How come it seems like almost every high street shop is either in administration or on the brink of it?

Oliver said: “I am deeply saddened by this outcome and would like to thank all of the staff and our suppliers who have put their hearts and souls into this business for over a decade. I appreciate how difficult this is for everyone affected.

This is something that takeaways have done for a while, so I could see it happening. I feel like people want to imagine their food coming from a real, proper restaurant, but I suppose they never need to know it's actually a warehouse on an industrial estate, and the associated increase in quality and lower price you'd be able to swing from such a venture would work out.

It's hard to say as the public is fickle and buying restaurant food has always been skewed in favour of image over substance. But I reckon calling it a cloud kitchen might be enough to sway them.

Maybe not an industrial estate, you'd still want to be within 10-20 minutes of your resdiential catchment area to keep delivery times short. The rest feels spot on, however. If you could ditch the shop front etc. you forgo the chance at becoming a "happening" place that makes money from walk ins, but who opens Just Eat, Deliveroo or whatever to look for the last place they had a nice sit-down meal and have it delivered? Delivered food is a separate skill. Food needs to be compatible with being delivered, though, potentialy in an insulated hotbox for an hour. Wet things in box plus sauce based thing wins without effort.

Sticking the auxiliary kitchen a bit further out in the suburbs is an advantage, because it extends the delivery range. In a major city like London or Birmingham, you ideally want the second kitchen a few miles from the restaurant to minimise the overlap between the two.

>Over the following months, Costa shared simulations with Li showing K1 making double-digit returns, although the two now dispute the thoroughness of the back-testing. Li eventually let K1 manage $2.5 billion—$250 million of his own cash and the rest leverage from Citigroup Inc. The plan was to double that over time.

>But Li’s affection for K1 waned almost as soon as the computer started trading in late 2017. By February 2018, it was regularly losing money, including over $20 million in a single day—Feb. 14—due to a stop-loss order Li’s lawyers argue wouldn’t have been triggered if K1 was as sophisticated as Costa led him to believe.

Counter-terror police are investigating three packages containing explosives found at Heathrow Airport, London City Airport and Waterloo station.

The "small improvised explosive devices" were found in A4 postal bags, the Metropolitan Police said. The Met's Counter Terrorism Command is treating it as a "linked series" and "keeping an open mind regarding motives".

No-one has been hurt, the force added.

The Compass Centre in Heathrow's grounds was evacuated after a package was reported to police at about 09:55 GMT. The device set alight when staff opened the bag.

Fraudster Darren Carvill stole more than £250,000 from Strood employer Mr Clutch to blow on drugs and prostitutes

A miserable accounts worker – bullied by workmates – ripped off £250,000 from his bosses... and blew it on drugs and escort parties.

Lonely Darren Carvill stole the money while working for national car servicing company "Mr Clutch" at its head office in Strood. In two-days, the 38-year-old took more than £170,000 which he then spent on glamorous parties with high-class hookers and drugs. Carvill claimed that when he realised he would be caught he wanted to "go out with a bang".

>The place where fraudsters always go wrong is what they spend the cash on. If I were so inclined to nick £170k from my employer, and actually managed it, the last thing I would spunk it on is hookers and blow - that's just asking to get caught.

Yes but what do you do with that money instead to keep a low profile. You can't really put it into a bank account without providing documentation as to where that money came from, you can't have it paid out to you in cash little by little and then travel abroad with a bag full of banknotes, for reasons including that customs will certainly not just let you enter a foreign country with that kind of money in cash without asking questions, and you also can't invest it in property, because you will also have to tell authorities where your £175K came from.

Blowing it all on drugs and hookers, and a few consumer goods, is actually the only way that you will get your money's worth out of it. And if you do it right, it's actually one of the best ways to keep a low profile and not let everybody know that you nicked a six-figure sum from somewhere.

Being a pimp requires more than money. Pimping is rent seeking, so they need to convince the prostitutes that some or all of what they earn is not theirs after all. Since pimping in the UK is illegal by itself, they can choose any legal or illegal means to do so, be it by charm or coercion. Some cash is great for projecting wealth and a promise of more, but it's like being at the top of a pyramid scheme: as long as the money keeps coming in you can dazzle the newcomers.

If you read the k/uran it's full of pimping. Underage, non believers, fucking horrible.

(A good day to you Sir!)
