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.

New Glasgow booze delivery service will bring drinks to your door

An online drinks delivery company is launching in Glasgow - just in time for the weekend!

On-demand service Drinkly will allow people to order any beverage they like from the comfort of their home.

The idea is reminding us of the days when alcohol delivery service Dial a Drink was all the rage.

The firm has more than 650 beverages to pick from, including beer, wine and spirits. There's even the option to pick up a few snacks as well if the sudden urge for crisps should strike.

I'm equally mystified by this. Even before business made it an official thing around 08-9 you could still ring up a takeaway and ask the driver to pick up some booze on the way for a big tip.

Are they just promising to be competitively priced?

I think the article's probably written by a younger person who hadn't heard of the idea before (though even then Amazon Prime Now will bring you booze too so they probably do know)

That definitely makes me feel old, though, I remember complaining about how expensive Dial a Drink was as a student. I suppose 24 hour supermarkets and the chance in licensing laws killed them off.

Nobody uses a phone anymore to speak to people!

Joking aside, the difference will be that they have a useable mobile application, with integrated payment options for customers. At the back-end, this will be integrated with their fulfilment systems and they'll have good data on how they operate and can plan better pricing and product selection. On an operational level, the gig economy means that the drivers and delivery are cheaper (zero hours work is cool now...)

I otherwise agree with you that it's exactly the same business it was in 2008. It's an evolution, rather than a revolution, leveraging the technology I have described above.

If anyone ever seriously thought we'd be flying around on hoverboards after thirty years they are a fucking idiot. Self-lacing shoes, self-drying clothes, even rehydratable pizzas, these are all feasible with dedicated R&D, but hoverboards are based on completely unexplained physics so there is no way such technology could ever be developed.

>but hoverboards are based on completely unexplained physics

Yes, and no.

Actual hoverboard designs that have produced working prototypes all rely on magnetic levitation. Similar to maglev trains, you need to generate a magnetic field strong enough to counter gravity. The technology exists now to create such a magnetic field with hardware small enough that it fits on the underside of a board just a little bigger than a regular skateboard. But this only works on certain metallic surfaces, as magnetic levitation depends on inducing a current in a conductor. And that is your biggest problem. As we can see in the movie, the BTTF hoverboards work perfectly on surfaces like concrete or grass. But these materials aren't very conductive, at least their electrical resistance is so high that no suitable induction can take place.

>Questions have been raised at an inquest after a 48-year-old woman from Lincoln died in hospital after a crash on the A46 at Nettleham.

>Adele Barbour died on January 17 last year as she had pulled in front of a Toyota Yaris while trying to turn right.

>Miss Barbour had a cardiac arrest and was rushed to hospital. However, questions were raised by coroner Marianne Johnson at the inquest into her death on the actions of emergency workers who mistakenly thought she was pregnant.

>A C-section was carried out at hospital because they thought she might have a baby due to her protruding stomach - only for them to discover she was not pregnant.

Also, even if she was unconscious and could not establish verbally if she was pregnant or not, did nobody bother to perform a quick ultrasound of her stomach first? Isn't that standard procedure before any Caesarian?

Seems like one person dumped a load of them. Dodgy cafe trying to fly tip, maybe?

I'm impressed they hold up so well underwater, though, I expected them to dissolve almost entirely in a few hours of submersion.

Not sure why anyone would ever chuck out a yorkie, though. What a waste. They're good even when they're stale, enough gravy to dunk them in and I'd eat a week old one after a quick blast in the oven.

>A woman who stepped over a barrier to take a selfie at a zoo in Arizona, US, has been attacked by a jaguar. It happened on Saturday and the woman's injuries were not life-threatening.

>When she crossed the barrier and approached the enclosure to photograph herself with the jaguar, it swiped out through the fencing, leaving deep gashes on her arms.

>Wildlife World Zoo director Mickey Ollson said there was "no way to fix people crossing barriers. They're there for a good reason," he said.

>He said the same animal had previously attacked someone else who crossed the barrier, but not as seriously. He confirmed that Saturday's incident was the result of "human error" and the animal would not be euthanised.
