Er excuse me Jim lad, you're not in a holyrood version of "Treasure Island", so be careful laddie...

Fish-head No 1 says it will be a "day of celebration not reckoning"

You wanna nationalise BP? In case you forgot Salmon(d), the b stands for British not Scottish!

"He added: "This referendum is about power, and when we get a 'Yes' majority we will use that power for a day of reckoning with BP and the banks.""

So fish-head, you'll be looking for the EU to bail you out when you lose all the businesses up there.

At least something vital may come out of this: -

"Sir Tim is calling for an information "clearing house" to be set up, that can warn all airlines, quickly, if there are any new threats in an area."

Is Del-boy attempting to get that "special relationship" back on track by kissing Obama's butt or is he trying to get revenge on parliament for preventing him from being the No 1 poodle last year?

Are humans born evil? Personally, I doubt it, but seeing stories such as this every so often, I cannot help but begin to wonder...

Father to be charged with the murder of his 5 children aged 1 to 8

Sorry folks, if the death penalty was worldwide, I would offer my services free of charge - just to rid the world of scum like that!

At least this s...b.. had the decency to off himself first

The so called "Cloud" is making storage manufacturers up their game...

Sandisk SD card "Largest ever"

"The thing that is driving cloud storage is multiple devices usage - which solves the, 'Where's my stuff?' problem: if you use cloud storage for everything, whatever device you have with you can be used to access your content."

But he added: "So far there's still a strong preference for local storage.

"People just feel more in control and more able to rely on being able to access the content when they literally know where it is.

"Storing in the cloud means you literally don't know where it is."

Mr Delaney added that recent high-profile security issues around cloud storage - such as the celebrity picture leak last week - would play on the minds of consumers.

Edit:

Some tongue-in-cheek from the BBC

Interesting...

Having oversight does not mean anything these days, just look to America & the NSA.

"The newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth quoted the letter as saying that unlike in other countries there was "no oversight on methods of intelligence or tracking, and the use of intelligence information against the Palestinians, regardless of whether they are connected to violence or not"."

Yin to the yang. Infamy is still fame of sorts.


It's a fast track to it I think... :/

@Chris - my other half has a theory that they go in three's... he's often right... erm... only on that I hasten to add :)

In that vein... RIP Donald Sinden, Ian Paisley and... :(

Not based on the Bible mate so you wont find any answers there .

Okay, then I read your post wrong: - Unless you meant Seers which takes this into account...

Seer

Either way, less of the hocus-pocus.

Gates Foundation gives $50 million to fight Ebola outbreak

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is giving $50 million to help fight the Ebola outbreak in Western Africa.

It is the giant philanthropy’s biggest donation ever for a health emergency, said Chris Elias, president of global development for the Seattle-based foundation.

The money will be released immediately to United Nations agencies and international aid groups to help scale up emergency operations and buy medical and quarantine supplies.

http://blogs.seattletimes.com/today/2014/09/gates-foundation-gives-50-million-to-fight-ebola-outbreak/

Even though that's good news, it's scary! This disease has the potential to become the pandemic of all pandemics which could decimate the planet. It should not be down to WHO or philanthropists.

Sod borders & diplomacy, all countries should unite on this until it can be isolated & cured.

Unfortunately, we'll see pigs flying before that happens!

So you feel good that innocent women & children are killed every day so long as you feel that the killers are treated humanely by society?

If we kill them, we aren't any better now are we.


No, people like you never kill or have the courage for it, you'd much rather send others out to do it for you when your "diplomatic skills" fail, all the while keeping your own hands free of blood.


Please ... please, Sirius, make peace with Michel. Or eye keel u! :)


WHY? This is the politics board where, more often than not, the truth hurts. With the responses so far to my post, just confirms that fact.

You want Seti Spirit? Easy, go to Dirk's site & download the latest version which is 2.4.8

Good post MK.

The People of Ferguson, MO's proper response should have been to meet with their elected representatives in Ferguson, namely the Mayor and City Council members and express their grievances.

People to Mayor and City Council: The police here are out of control, fix it.
Mayor and City Council to old Police Chief: You are fired.
Mayor and City Council to new Police Chief: Fix it.

If not, then the People vote the Mayor and City Council out and replace them in the next election. This is representative democracy in action.


Quite true, but & it's a big but, that is no proof that the same won't happen again.
