This strategy worked for me. Did it twice in the past 18 months, and clearly things weren't working. Got 20% going into the first, 10% out of there and into the second, and 25% out of there and into somewhere decent. Throw in the raise I received in the job I had before that, and in two years my pay has gone up 65%.

As someone who worked in the NHS in a very much not frontline area, pay is a perennial problem. Management would wonder why the we were always suffering the same old problems that were getting us constantly slated. The thought that pay points were pathetic compared to the market and therefore the only people suitably qualified that were applying were internal candidates. Anyone that was actually competent was leaving.

Yeah, in our line of work you can easily change jobs every few years without it hurting your CV at all - improving it even. The problem comes as you get older, have families, and don't feel like jumping on the recruitment merry-go-round every two years.

Thanks. Between 2010 and 2015 my pay only went up from £15,000 to £20,000 but since then it has more than doubled. It's amazing what difference a bit of experience and self belief can do.

Just missed a call from work. They're either going to be asking me to come in to cover someone, or if I want to take tomorrow's shift off as holiday, as I have fuckloads of accrued and I can't get paid all of it that I don't take.

He was chief cashier at the Bank for ages (his signature is still on a lot of bank notes), and then Deputy. I think that more than qualifies him to be governor.

The FCA didn't do a fantastic job over RBS, but then their hands are slightly tied by the fact its a zombie bank. I disagree with the Woodford criticism.

There aren't many better people out there - Mark Carney has been a genuinely great governor and is well respected in the City - Bailey will probably keep a lower profile, but again, no bad thing in a central banker.

A much better, more interesting question might be - how do I get a job at the Bank of England when they don't pay anything near the market rate.

Nicky Morgan had to threaten him with contempt over his refusal to publish their report on RBS unredacted.

The FCA were also asleep at the wheel over final salary transfers, which led to the mess over British Steel, and ignored warnings about mini bonds which included specific ones over the now collapsed London Capital & Finance.

As I understand it Aspect's experiment doesn't completely rule out hidden variables it just means that if they exist they must be non-local.

What's so bad about that? Maybe the hidden variables simply exist outside of spacetime. That's a lot more reasonable than observation "creating reality" or bazillions of parallel universes.

That's not how infinity works. There are infinite numbers between the integrals 3 and 4, but none of them are 5.

With infinite probability you're assuming that you can reduce the problem to something akin to "if you play the lottery infinite times, you'll win the lottery infinite times". However, without a guaranteed source of entropy we can't assume that infinite universes would be in any way different to our own.

I remember for a long time them being full on 'fat shaming by doctors is real, healthy at every size, intesectionalists unite' thankfully that situation has at least improved.

Mind you wikipedia can't even state the correct date for when the first bomberman game was released without someone editing it back to the wrong one so I'm not sure what standard you can realistically expect from a site that contains debatable topics and anyone can edit.

Wikipedia's problem is that most people who know better would prefer to disparage Wikipedia rather than spending that same effort engaging in the editing process (which by the way needn't start and definitely doesn't end with pressing the edit button).

And there's no way Wikipedia doesn't state the correct date since there are a bunch of different dates given depending on where you look with different reasoning behind them. You're unhappy that one info box doesn't contain your preferred date.

The edit war is based on the fact that hudsonsoft US nintendo team released a statement say 30 years of bomberman in 2015. This issue is that is the date that bomber man came out in the US, on the NES. The game was actually released 2 years earlier on the MSX (and inbetween multiple other systems) everywhere but in the US (although rebranded as Eric and the floaters in Europe because glorifying terrorism was considered a moral concern). There are paragraphs of people arguing quite logically and rightly that 1983 is clearly the date on the edit page, as they bloody owned the game before 85. But then US yards change it back to 85 because that's what the statement they've over generalised says that none of them have ever justified.

What makes this weirder is that the first game of the series is rightfully labelled on its page the 1983 game because you can't argue it first came out on a port when it is a clearly and objectively defined in a way the franchise wasn't at that point.

A personal family favourite and quite difficult to find at reasonable price.
It's a bit similar to Monopoly, but with a tile aspect that means rather than buying property you get property by chance (collect 3 tiles of the same animal from the dispenser) based on Chinese zodiac it's relatively fun until late game when all the tiles are gone and one fucker, Me, has every tile someone else needs, and needs to be overtaken, or baited into a deal to sell them.
