While not as bad as some I've seen, the "is everyone okay ps can has pix plz" is still fucking cringeworthy, and the people who do it should have some serious words with themselves.

Theresa May is due to make a statement in Downing Street at 11.15am amid speculation the Prime Minister could call an early general election.

Mrs May is scheduled to make her statement immediately following a meeting of her Cabinet. The BBC's political editor Laura Kuenssberg confirmed the news and said such a statement is "only normally used for most serious moments".

Downing Street is yet to comment on what Mrs May will say. Statements outside Number 10 are highly rare and usually reserved for only the most significant announcements.

The last time Mrs May spoke to the nation in front of the famous black door was after she succeeded David Cameron as PM. Meanwhile, Mr Cameron used the setting to announce his resignation in the immediate aftermath of the EU referendum result.

It's either a general election or we're going to war with the North Koreans. Place your bets now.

>>IFS research said that between 2010 and 2016 the value of the state pension increased by 22.2 per cent compared with growth in earnings of 7.6 per cent and growth in prices of 12.3 per cent over the same period.

The basic State Pension in 2010 was £5,077.80. If it has increased by 2.5% compound over 6 years that's 15.97% to £5,888.69, which works out at £15.59 per week.

If it was a double lock:

• Earnings was 1.8% in 2010/11
• RPI was 4.6% in 2011/12
• CPI was 5.2% in 2012/13
• CPI was 2.2% in 2013/14
• CPI was 2.4% in 2014/15
• CPI was 1.2% in 2015/16
• We've excluded 2016/17 from this, but earnings rose by 2.8%.

Swapping the triple lock for a double lock, sure, but I'm not arguing the 'double lock' is any good.

In any case, in the double lock scenario the 2.5% bit is done away with beacuse its arbitrary nonsense, so your numbers are wrong. You're right that it makes bugger all difference, but the double lock is overexpensive too.

On the contrary, the double/triple lock is a very good thing. If I've got to work until I'm fucking 70 and some wannabe Maxwell cunt is going to raid any other pension I might have, I'd appreciate it if whatever other provision is left is actually worth something.

/pol/82525 Facebook blocks Pulitzer-winning reporter over Malta government exposé
Remember when we started talking about Facebook gaining a worrying power to censor the news?

>Facebook has censored a Pulitzer prize-winning journalist for publishing a series of posts alleging corruption by the prime minister of Malta and his associates. Matthew Caruana Galizia, a member of the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists’ award-winning Panama Papers team, was temporarily locked out of his Facebook account over four posts, which were deleted for violating the social network’s community standards.

>“For me, this process was enlightening because I realised how crippling and punitive this block is for a journalist,” Caruana Galizia told the Guardian by email.

>The posts, which were written in Maltese, contained allegations of wrongdoing by prime minister Joseph Muscat, his chief of staff Keith Schembri, and minister of energy Konrad Mizzi. Each post included images of documents from the Panama Papers leak. The censorship of Caruana Galizia comes amid considerable political turmoil and intrigue in the Mediterranean island nation, where a snap election is scheduled for 3 June. It also again raises concerns over Facebook’s incredible power to disseminate – or block – news and information.

>On 7 May, Matthew Caruana Galizia, who is the son of Daphne Caruana Galizia, began publishing his own reporting on offshore companies and Maltese political figures on his Facebook page, using the hashtags #FattiKorrotti and #CorruptionFacts. The posts include scans of documents from the Panama Papers, including passports, bank statements, and letters, as well as Caruana Galizia’s explanation of their meaning.

>On Tuesday 16 May, Caruana Galizia was locked out of his account for 24 hours. Several #FattiKorrotti posts were deleted.

>The deletions raise questions about how Facebook moderates journalism. In 2016, the social media site ignited a global controversy when it censored an iconic Vietnam war photograph of a naked child fleeing a Napalm attack. Facebook initially defended its decision, going so far as to delete a post by the Norwegian prime minister, because it was consistent with its policy barring nudity. Facebook subsequently amended its policy, announcing that it would allow people to publish material that would otherwise violate its standards if it was found to be “newsworthy, significant, or important to the public interest”.

>Documents related to alleged wrongdoing by public officials in the weeks before an election are in the public interest, and they have certainly been deemed newsworthy by the Maltese press, which has followed Caruana Galizia’s lead in reporting on them. “It’s important that journalists can publish information that is in the public interest,” a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement. “We are investigating these posts and have spoken with Mr Caruana Galizia today so that he can publish what he needs to, without including unnecessary private details that could present safety risks. If we find that we have made errors, we will correct them.”

As an amateur philologist could you give me an example? If you'd asked me prior what Maltese was I'd have assumed it was some mildly bastardised version of Spanish or Italian that dons the cloak of 'separate' language by virtue of borders. You sound like an interesting fellow.

Satire transcends finding a political solution and just helps us laugh at the absurdities of life. When South Park does get political however it's libertarian in outlook which doesn't need to justify itself so much as point out the solutions are all awful and poke fun at the kinds of people who want to impose their vision on others.

I don't think endemic works in that context. Epidemic.

regardless, on a serious not, this hurt. Chris wrote songs that helped me through parts of my life and it breaks my heart that he didn't have that or felt he didn't from anything in his own life. I feel like a part of me died with him, so I understand why his family might be in denial over it. People mock sentiment like that, but inspirational people do provide emotional support in a lot of ways.

on a less serious note, I bet it was that fucking Timbaland album. He woke up one morning and remembered it and was like "Aw, fuck. I'm going to have to kill myself."

The curve will be a little crazy, because in general the quality has improved over time. In general, the older the disc, the poorer the quality probably was, which means the sooner it will have failed. I have discs from around 10 years ago that have fared noticeably better than those from around 15 years ago did when they were the same age.

There are apparently "archival grade" discs around, which claim a life on the order of centuries, though given the technology hasn't been around that long it's difficult to tell whether or not they've lived up to it.

The problem is that any electronic data storage technology is eventually bound to fail. Books can be well over 1200 years old and still in remarkable condition, because a book is just about the most low-tech data carrying device you can think of. Even modern thumb or SSD drives, which have the benefit of no mechanical parts like conventional hard disks, contain a greater number of microelectronic parts such as capacitors and the like. All these have a technically possible lifespan, and they will begin to fail at the end of that, if not much sooner. It's too early to tell yet how USB thumb drives and SSDs will fare long-term (USB drives have really only been around for just over 15 years), but again, they are bound to run into technical lifespan limitations at some point.

On an unrelated side note, this is also one aspect of why some people believe that interstellar travel will never happen by means of conventional propulsion. Because even if we successfully assemble and launch a generation spaceship, there are simply no manufacturing processes known today that can guarantee a lifespan of daily-use electronics on the scale of hundreds of thousands of years that it would probably take just to get to the nearest couple of other stars in the Milky Way. You would have to have production facilities on board to continuously produce new spare parts. And the machines that would produce them would also deteriorate over time and need new parts themselves. And so on.

Long-term storage in general is something we still haven't cracked after 100,000 years of existence. The best-preserved artefacts from ancient history are not those that have been consciously preserved but those that got buried.

The other great parallel in technarchaeology is that, just as we have ancient writing that we are no longer able to decode, we also have ancient formats that we are no longer able to read. The BBC's Domesday Project was issued on a proprietary laserdisc format which nobody else took up (it was almost a decade before LD-ROM emerged). There are thought to be only around a dozen of the players left in serviceable condition.

>When you came, you said to me as follows : “I will give Gimil-Sin (when he comes) fine quality copper ingots.” You left then but you did not do what you promised me.

We tend to have a lot of repeated threads here, but I also get the feeling people don't tend to post in /emo/ unless it's a big issue.

With this in mind I suggest that we have a thread for stuff that's got you down a bit and you need to get off your chest, without it being major enough to make an entire thread devoted to it. We can also use it as a go-to for minor relationship advice, work problems, social drama, and things like that.

The doctor tried to tell me I was depressed for these reasons, so I had to remind him that not only am I already on an antidepressant for anxiety, I suffer from chronic back and joint pain and told him if he gave me better painkillers I'd shower more than was absolutely necessary to keep my wife from leaving me.

I shaved recently for the first time in about a year and had to use scissors on it first, because I was going to a wedding. Up until that point I couldn't be arsed because it really hurt my arm and wrist and my wife liked it... for a bit. She started offering to shave it for me, but I was too proud, but eventually conceded the moustache because she threatened to stop having sex with me so she was trimming it with a beard trimmer every time it got "scratchy".

It's all about perspective, both of those things apply to me but I'm pretty OK mentally.

The nurses have good chat and tolerance for swearing, first time I went they gave me a form with pictures of the body and told me to highlight were it hurt.

If I had the money, billions upon billions of pounds and earning similar, I'd personally fund the NHS to keep it out of private sector hands, by mitigating cuts by donating to the affected NHS Trust.

I hate that NHS funding is a political issue.

Lung cancer has a very poor long term survival rate as it is, because it almost universally tends to be very aggressive and spreads profusely to other parts of the body.

It's a fucking disgrace that people are kept waiting to receive chemo, but it probably had a very limited effect on her eventual prognosis.

What's disgusting though is the thought that maybe somebody was kept waiting because it was known that they quite probably wouldn't have long either way, and that that would make it alright to save a few quid by not admitting them to chemo. Yes, depending on the details, a cycle of chemotherapy can cost £100K and more. But in the greater scheme of things, there are much more serious ways in which NHS money, and loads more than that, is wasted.

90 percent of lung cancer patients are or were smokers. So theoretically, that still leaves room for a benefit of doubt.

I don't judge people who smoke, after all, I smoked for well over a decade myself, and at the end before I quit, I was up to over a pack a day.

I just keep suggesting nicely to people around me who still smoke to think about quitting. Even if some of them think I am a cunt. I like to think that I am still not as bad as some of the more preachy former smokers that you can meet.

I'll get the ball rolling - having to bring in pastries on your birthday. I know it's cheaper if people bring their own in on their birthday instead of chipping in every time someone in the office has a birthday, but it's still fucking annoying having to fork out on your birthday.

No. The issue is OP is inept and just took it like a bitch instead of mass-emailing everyone the replies he got as a "reminder - FYI - here are your replies, I hope these jog your memories :)"

But no, he took 9 inches, and came running here to complain.

Fucking scum. He fully deserves it. Now, I hope they make jokes and tease him about how he keeps saying "but really mate, you did send me a reply, I just can't find it."

>Whilst Mr Assange was wanted on a European Arrest Warrant (EAW) for an extremely serious offence, the MPS response reflected the serious nature of that crime. Now that the situation has changed and the Swedish authorities have discontinued their investigation into that matter, Mr Assange remains wanted for a much less serious offence. The MPS will provide a level of resourcing which is proportionate to that offence.

>The MPS will not comment further on the operational plan.

>The priority for the MPS must continue to be arresting those who are currently wanted in the Capital in connection with serious violent or sexual offences for the protection of Londoners.

No, the offences timed out. That's not the same thing at all.

>if the British authorities had gotten a hold of him he would have been put on a plane to the US, not Sweden.
Nonsense. The EAW was pretty much the only thing guaranteeing that wouldn't happen. The UK was bound by international law to turn him over to Sweden. They couldn't let him walk, and they couldn't send him anywhere else. Sweden unequivocably had first dibs. Anything else would have caused an international incident.

>If he can make it back to Sweden
... he will be arrested and questioned for the one allegation that remains. They've dropped it for now, but they're entirely entitled to pick it up again at any time until that too times out in 2020.

I was given a dated Archos tablet. After some messing about I can see the utility in them, but it can no longer run the latest versions of my Android apps.

I'm completely new to tablets, but I'm hoping to find something cheap and cheerful for reading (eBooks and my own notes), and some light internet browsing.

I'm thinking about one of the ASUS ZenPads, probably the bigger 10.1" one. Could this feasibly be used for comfortably study?

For a tiny bit more money, you could get a convertible Windows tablet/laptop. The keyboard clips on and off with magnets, so you can use it as either a pure tablet or a dinky laptop. The tablet side of things is less slick than Android, but it'll probably be more useful for study.

I can't compare it to Android tablets but the Kindle Fire tablets are pretty good value for money. Only problem is that they are by default hooked into Amazon's app store not Google Play, so quite a few apps available on Android are either not maintained as frequently or completely absent. I'd say it's great for reading ebooks and light internet browsing but if you have want to use a lot of specific non-Amazon apps you may be out of luck.

Crikey, they really didn't spend very much money at all. Given the collapse in their vote I would have expected this figure to be much higher, almost to the point where it would have been cheaper to just bribe people.

The Lib Dems usually run a very lean and cost-effective campaign based on local grass-roots activism. They spent 72p per vote in 2005 and 70p per vote in 2010, so their cost-per-vote doubled after the coalition.

Disclosing information is so small-time. The President The Donald doesn't do small-time. If he's going to disclose anything, he's going to go big. He wouldn't tell anyone anything without telling them where he heard it, like "I heard on Fox News", "I read on Breitbart" or "Israel gave us this intelligence in confidence but I can trust you, right Sergei?"
