All I can say is WOW!

Whaterever happened to:

"The Land of the Free"

"Freedom of Speech"

"All men are created equal"

As for everyone having to speak English...

...hmmn...

Let's have an example of said English, American style...

...since when has "Kindergarten" been an English word?

"The term was coined by the German Friedrich Fröbel whose approach greatly influenced early years education around the world. Today, the term is used in many countries to describe a variety of educational institutions and learning spaces for children ranging from two to seven years of age, based on a variety of teaching methods."

Funny thing language :-)

Hmm, I wonder how many scientific solutions arrived at in a bar or at a dinner table...

... a science forum using technology, maybe once in a while one should step back & realise one is human.

"The judges' decision is likely to reignite criticism of the complexity of the UK tax system, if HMRC itself can be caught off guard. It will also expose alternative financing arrangements to more scrutiny from tax campaigners."

Nice links. However, rather than waste time burning iso images, use a virtual drive - I use MagicISO - Nifty little program :-)

If using NTlite to slipstream, install WAIK 1st before installing NTlite.

If using NTlite, select sources folder for Windows.

Yes, back on subject, I asked 3 questions, only 1 got answered?

"For a fire, that's a very short period of time. For an explosive event, like a bomb, that's a very long period of time," he says.

"It's got me and many other experts scratching their heads. There is an answer, but it's not clear yet."

"It's shockingly regular, and along with drones, it's the only part of aviation that's getting more dangerous," Capt Cox says.

Fires are a growing problem

A case of profits above safety?

How old was the airframe?
How often was it serviced?
Was maintenance/upgrades/repairs done to manufacturer/safety regulations?

Oh dear, poor Belgium

"A lack of funding is at the heart of the strike. Guards are protesting against cuts to staff numbers and working conditions. The government has been trying to reduce spending in a country with a bloated bureaucracy.

The situation is out of control, according to Alexis Deswaef, president of the Belgian Human Rights League.

"It's a complete violation of article three of the European Convention of Human Rights," he told the BBC, referring to prohibition of inhuman or degrading treatment."

Yet...

That's not a solution but a four year deal to maintain the status quo.

Where have you posted a genuine solution to the problem that the US is facing?

You keep mentioning that you've given solutions, Where?

Before technology reared it's ugly head, all politicians lied, cheated & con their way to the top.

Now due to technolgy, there is only one option open to them - Cheating.

Solutions? With this?

Hilary says it's a foregone conclusion, bye bye Sanders then attacks Trump

Really Hilary...

"Mrs Clinton called Mr Trump "dangerous" and said he could not be trusted in sensitive national security situations like the operation that killed Osama Bin Laden."

...oh dear, so your breach of security was just a hiccup?

None of us has been off topic. All stated so far is relevant. Haven't you already said "Past is prologue" & History often repeats"

Since the fall of the USSR you're no longer the world's policeman, but the world's No 1 bully & what has been seen for the past decade even that pails as you're on the road to world dictatorship & all for the sake of the "mighty $".

Trump/Clinton is only confirming that to the rest of the world.
