Huddersfield charity shop finally says goodbye to a shutter which lasted 26 years


http://www.examiner.co.uk/news/west-yorkshire-news/huddersfield-charity-shop-finally-says-10780879

That's it. That's literally it. A charity shop has replaced one of its roller shutters after having the same one for 26 years. It's all go in Huddersfield.

I challenge you lads to find a more pointless news story than this.

19666 "Recession Soon"
https://www.theguardian.com/business/2019/jul/13/urgent-planning-needed-to-combat-looming-downturn

Here's Mark Carney talking about the likelihood of another recession, I make this thread because a couple of weeks ago I posted "recession soon" in another thread, but frankly that wasn't definitive enough. This thread is my declaration that the world's going to belly flop into economic oblivion very shortly, I'm sure of it.

I used to look forward to the next recession. The last two big economic paradigm shifts were greatly influenced by downturns, and despite the fact the messiah who would lead us to the promised land something better did not appear on doomsday 2008 I've got to hold out hope he'll appear next time. Even as I know it's cargo-cult political economy, I stick to it on some level.
Increasingly I'm going to believe that even if we do replace the consensus of the last 40 years, it won't be better. Just different and probably sillier. But what else is there to do? If you give up hope of something better, really give up hope, you've had it.

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.


https://www.kentonline.co.uk/herne-bay/news/hunt-for-book-ripper-tearing-up-novels-207914/

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.

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.

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 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.

19592 Colchester barracks: Paratrooper 'shocked' by 'racist abuse'
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-essex-48844477

> 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
https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-06-28/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.

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."

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.

So what would be the impact if he went through with it? Please answer as though I'm an ignorant fool. I'm sensing there's that undercurrent where WW3 would be just around the corner if he did but I'm not sure why.

Seems to me Iran are just behind North Korea as global scapegoat baddies who don't have any friends to stand behind them. The Yanks only ever pick on countries that can't stand up for themselves.

https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2019/jun/20/uks-porn-age-verification-system-to-be-delayed-indefinitely

>The UK’s age-verification system for online pornography is expected to be delayed indefinitely, just weeks before it is due to be launched.

>A delay could see the issue of age verification fall under the responsibility of whoever wins the contest to be prime minister, such as the frontrunner Boris Johnson.

>The age block was due to be one of the first of its kind anywhere in the democratic world. Websites that refused to implement the checks face being blocked by UK internet service providers or having their access to payment services withdrawn.

>Age verification was first proposed in the run-up to the 2015 general election by Sajid Javid, when he was culture secretary in the coalition government. However, despite coming close to completion the government has struggled with the details of implementing the policy.

So no, otherlad, the porn ban is not for real. And I have to assume the use of "coming close close to completion" was not an incidental one by the Guardian.

It's already been delayed twice. It's stuck in some weird slow-motion race of unworkable policies, glaring at Brexit like a match sprinter on the upper banking.

19488 Electrical failure cuts power to all of Argentina and Uruguay
https://www.bbc.com/news/world-latin-america-48652686

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.

Is there anything promising going on in the British nuclear industry at the moment?

Not really, no. There are a couple of half-interesting research projects, but development of new power plants is stalled because of Brexit - the whole nuclear sector is fucked if we drop out of Euratom.

But that's not going to happen because we're going to get a great deal because we're going to make the European Commission give us one, even though their negotiation team has been officially disbanded, and the Commission will be dissolved until November so there'll be nobody to negotiate with, but we're British so we can do this and anyone that says we can't is an unpatriotic traitor who's just talking the country down.

I'm unlucky, but I don't want to abuse children so I don't think this'll happen to me.

>Well I hope there aren't that many people who actually pimp out their children to paedos for real.


We all assume this, and then it turns out that there was an entire villiage somewhere that they use children's arses for barter exchange, and it seems incredible that that was happening.

Looks like everybody has been bonking everybody anyhow.

Kind of sounds like the rural Kentucky of the Pacific.
