>Drag queens banned from performing at Free Pride Glasgow event over fears acts will offend trans people

[...]

>The organisation said in a statement that it hopes to create a safe space for all members of the LGBTQIA+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, intersex, asexual) community, and that while the decision may "disappoint" some people "the needs of the most marginalised groups within our community come first."

[...]

>Free Pride Glasgow said: “It was felt that it [drag performance] would make some of those who were transgender or questioning their gender uncomfortable. It was felt by the group within the Trans/Non Binary Caucus that some drag performance, particularly cis drag, hinges on the social view of gender and making it into a joke, however transgender individuals do not feel as though their gender identity is a joke.”


Life rarely takes the piss out of itself like this. It almost sounds like the plot of a South Park episode.

Red Bull look boss, as usual.

Mclaren looked shite in testing (but as of now as fast in practice at the first gp)

Ferrari look about the same.

Tyres probably key to the whole deal this year.

...It is important to state that it is not communities that commit crimes but individuals. Those convicted are squarely Henry Long, Albert Bowers and Jessie Cole, not thousands of innocent people who share their heritage. Tarring all Travellers with the brush of these men’s callousness is as unfair as tarring all Catholics for paedophile priests or all eskimos for daft militant wog attacks.

Yet to completely ignore the cultural context of this crime is wrong. Henry Long, the ringleader, was removed from school at the age of 12; he followed his father and grandfather into the thieving “trade”. Albert Bowers left school at 11 and before the trial had already picked up three youth convictions. These young men could not read or write. For years they had not known school or structure. Their education was in petty crime.

Such problems do not solely beset Travellers but they are far more prevalent among Traveller communities. If we want to be a country where all are treated the same, where all live by the same rules and where the state does its best to furnish each with a decent chance in life, we have to end the squeamishness that prevents open talk about Travellers. This squeamishness is down to two fears. First, the fear of retribution. After the verdict on PC Harper’s death it emerged that the judge, Mr Justice Edis, brought the first trial to a temporary halt over an alleged potential plot to intimidate jurors. Extra security measures were brought in. Jurors were referred to by number not name. One juror was dismissed for acting oddly in court, mouthing pleasantries at the defendants. Whether she was motivated by misplaced friendliness or fear of someone up in that public gallery we do not know, but most will not be shocked by revelations of intimidation.

The fear of the bullet, the knife, the burnt-out car; this helps the lawless elements of Traveller culture maintain a certain power, and gives the law-abiding majority of Travellers a terrible name.

The second fear is that of being labelled racist. Since the Equality Act 2010 recognised Gypsy, Roma and Travellers as ethnic minorities, race has been used to shield this culture from due scrutiny. Sensible questions about why those within these groups are more likely to be in prison, more likely to be illiterate or more likely to suffer domestic violence prompt cries of racism. In April a Channel 4 Dispatches programme titled The Truth About Traveller Crime was dubbed “dehumanising” by activists and investigated by Ofcom. Desperate not to offend, the authorities turn a culturally sensitive blind eye.

The fears hush most into silence, and the silence means the stand-off between Travellers and the rest of society continues uneasily. Many feel disquieted to see the mobile homes rolling on to a local beauty spot, a portent too often of littering, mess, anti-social behaviour. Meanwhile those in Traveller communities are hardly “living their best lives”. Travellers die about ten years earlier than the rest of us. They have higher rates of chronic illness. Their suicide rates are six times higher.

You might argue that they choose to live like this, but the babies born into that life don’t. Many are destined to repeat the same pattern: leave school in your early teens, drift into a life of odd jobs and petty crime, never move beyond the circles you were raised in. As long as the culturally sensitive force-field exists around Travellers, these children are abandoned to a fate that should not be tolerated in 21st-century Britain.

It is a scandal that some Gypsy and Traveller children are taken out of school at primary age; that some start work as young as ten; that about 65 per cent of Traveller children are persistently absent from school; that they have the lowest attainment of all ethnic groups throughout their school years and are far more likely to be excluded. Are we to be surprised when they choose crime?

I'm a silly sausage. I used alcohol gel to clean my laptop screen at some point in the past. Some residue must have remained when I closed the laptop, creating something that looks like a permanent smudge. The smudge, incidentally, perfectly matches up to the trackpad and a little protrusion in the keyboard.

Cleaning it with a cloth dampened in warm soapy water appears to remove the smudge temporarily, but it reappears when the screen dries, suggesting the alcohol has damaged the outermost layer of the screen.

Is there any way I can lessen the appearance of this damage?

I did not take the OP picture, but it's like a far less extreme case of the attached (a few mm in thickness).

It won't melt your laptop, it'll just completely remove the anti-glare coating. That's why they tell you not to use window cleaner on your monitor. If your anti-glare is damaged, it might be preferable to completely remove it.

I know I'm a bit late to the party but I'm considering getting either a PS4 or an Xbox One. I'm assuming these days there's little difference between the two other than having the odd exclusive title. I've seen a few Xbox One bundles in the region of £150 - £200 so I'll probably go for one of them as they're cheaper than what I've seen for the PS4.

Have I left it too late, as in are the next generation of consoles expected any day now? Also, which games do you lads recommend? I'm a bit out of the loop with gaming.

Plastics have improved hugely over the past few decades. White plastics still have a tendency to yellow a bit over time but it's barely a problem now compared to how it was in the 80s and 90s.
Yellow PS5s might be something that vintage tech collectors 50 years from now will be worrying about, but it's not really a concern for the usual lifespan of a console.

I saw Make Up when the Cinemas first reopened and it was a excellent kitchen sink horror/thriller. Not sure whereabouts it is available at the moment.

For something a bit more indie, try and track down some films by a guy called John Williams. He makes some really good horror comedies, The Slayers and Crispy's Curse are excellent. I think they have US DVDs, not sure about UK releases, but he'll probably sell you copies directly. He has a new anthology coming out soon too.

Lads, help me out with some troubleshooting as I'm at a bit of a loss. I've not been able to get to a professional repair place for months and when I tried a local place a few months back they told me to fuck off because of Covid.

Issue:
Laptop seems to be suffering from some mysterious process causing it to often slow to a crawl and then sometimes it will freeze, fan runs into overdrive and I have to unplug it and put it away for the battery to discharge.

Hardware?
Assumed initially that it was poor internal cooling causing it to overheat so I cleaned the inside and later bought an external cooling pad but no joy. Speccy does not show anything unusual on temperature when it slows.

Software?
Nothing unusual on task manager, have done a reset to see if any apps were causing it, issue seems to be system-wide from testing different apps. Disabled dogshit Lenovo plugin.

I guess I will have to buy myself a new laptop soon which is annoying as I'm looking to get a mortgage in the new year and want to show my life as boring. Plus if I can fix it but still buy another laptop then I can give this to my mum who will just use it for facebook.

Those specs look very recent - are you still under warranty? I wouldn't bother troubleshooting anything weird if I can just get an RtB.

Failing that, my first course of action would be to open up Resource Monitor and wait to see if anything weird happens; any runaway process that is using up all of your CPU should make itself known. If that reveals nothing, I'd use msconfig to reboot into minimal Safe Mode to see if the problem still occurs. If it doesn't, then I'd use Device Manager and msconfig to disable every non-essential driver and background process, then re-enable them one by one.

Caveat: I admin Linux boxes in a professional capacity, but am very much a non-expert when it comes to Windows.

Due to various poorly timed low-IQ schemes collapsing thanks to Based Virus I got what I deserved and have been catapulted from posh cunt to getting £525.2 a month without any significant savings.

Now I think I have it somewhat under control by simply not going out and learning to cook poorly at home - but I realized doing my grocery shopping that I lack any good sense on what to buy and what's price efficient. Can some protips be shared here anonymously for idiots like me?

One thing I can contribute, which may be common sense again, is that I had never realized my broadband/phone contracts were negotiable. Apparently if you call and whine a bit the call center lad has the authority to give you a discount.

This is actually a pretty interesting insight into Russias perceptions of America.
The undertone here is that the American Government is OK, but heavily under the influence of the mafia.
In turn the imagery of the Mafia here (skinheads, trenchcoats, vampire-ish old Italians) seems intended to show an association between the American Mafia and fascism/Nazism, and there's probably some grain of truth in that.

>Lloyds Banking Group has revealed that its black staff are being paid nearly 20% less than their colleagues, as it became the first major UK bank to disclose its black pay gap.

>Britain’s biggest high street lender said the earnings gap was due to a lack of black staff in senior positions that come with larger salaries and bigger bonuses. Figures released as part of its wider race action plan showed the median pay gap between black staff and their colleagues was 19.7%, while the bonus gap stood at 37.6%.

>Black employees make up 1.5% of Lloyds staff, but only hold 0.6% of the top jobs at Lloyds. The bank pledged in July to increase the number of black staff in senior roles to 3% by 2024 – bringing it in line with the black population in England and Wales – in response to Black Lives Matter protests this summer.

Not surprising, most bands of that sort aren't exactly loaded. They're big names in terms of influence and respect, but they never truly had commercial success in their heyday, or if they did, that money will have long since dried up.

I always think it must be really weird to be at that level of sort-of-famous, in a very specific demographic, where you can wander about Tescos and the vast majority of people have absolutely no clue who you are, but every so often you bump into some grebo who points at you and goes "Fuck me it's Cronos!"

I think that's the only sort of fame I could tolerate. Back in my cheflad days I ran a place in a small town and people would just stop me and talk to me on the street about poached eggs and such - sometimes with reverence like I was on the telly, sometimes with familiarity like I lived in the same house as them. It was awful - it made financial and logistical sense for me to move to that town when I worked there, but I much preferred living many miles away.

The bloke dressed as a builder in the "hands, face, space" adverts is a family friend, and apparently nobody has directly recognised him from it, but often people just stare at him in confusion, trying to work out why he looks familiar to them. That doesn't sound fun.

Or boric acid - you can buy it cheap in powder form on eBay, or you can buy a commercial product called Borax, which is a different formulation of the same compound.

Super cheap and cleans up fungal, mould and insects/things like silverfish. Also good for stinky shoes and general cleaning. I think you can also use it to make things fireproof, too.

Just had a generous portion of chili and garlic spaghetti, made with some of my homegrown chili peppers. Quite delicious.

And dead easy to make. Finely chop about half a clove of garlic and a whole red chili pepper, glaze very briefly in a midsized, deep frying pan at low temperature in about four tablespoons of virgin olive oil, then add your freshly cooked spaghetti and stir carefully for a few minutes. Add salt to taste, and if you want to go fancy, a dash of Italian herbs.

Those "insert specific insect here killer" insecticides are just a way of selling the same stuff several times with different labels at different prices.

The safety data sheet for that one says it's 0.1% Cypermethrin solution, so you'll get the same results with any cypermethrin carpet spray.
You can find it cheaper by searching directly for cypermethrin spray, It's usually sold as carpet moth killer, bedbug killer or something like "Protector C" or "Formula C".

A very gently spoken Chinese man spoke to me about ten years ago. He said to me that I will have great fortune within ten years, else complete wrack and ruin fall upon everybody I have ever known.

>To shorten the story as much as possible: the missus is older than me, 36 going on 37, and for various reasons she had doubts about her ability to have kids. I have soundly proven her wrong, but it happened sooner than either of us were expecting. I would have liked more time, but there are much worse circumstances under which this could happen.

The way I've always seen it, you either want kids or you don't, full stop, and if you're the former rather than the latter it doesn't make all that much difference when. "The right time" will come round before you know it and you'd only think, "Ah, maybe in another year..." like you would kicking any other can down the road.

Personally I'm never planning on having them, but anytime in my 30s would feel like the right time to start, 40s onwards is leaving it a bit late perhaps. A couple of my mates had kids in their early 20s and it ruined one of their lives, because the mum was a psycho, whereas the other one is the picture of a happy family man now.

So the moral of the story is probably just Consider if you are truly mentally and emotionally capable of supporting a partner with their own mental health issues, and everything will work out okay, as with all else in life.

Corbynites aren't completely lacking in pragmatism (they are after all the ones in the Labour party rather than the ones hawking socialist worker at every protest going.) Their big problems are being mediocre at media management and occasionally preferring a new and gimmicky policy idea over a fine one from the 1970s that got orphaned in past Labour factional struggles, rather than fundamentally believing in some kind of utopian nonsense.

I'm not getting at you specifically, it's just that there's an idea floating out there that Corbynites becoming more pragmatic would mean "selling out" (to be glib about it) and accepting that they can't except the government to achieve very much, which is an awful way of looking at it. The Corbynite who decides to try and slip free broadband into the back of Starmer's 2024 manifesto in ambiguous language and takes a few public speaking lessons will be ten times the pragmatist politician that the mumbly former-Corbynite who moved dramatically to the right on policy in the hopes of nabbing a cabinet job will.

Full disclosure: I didn't care for the 2019 Labour manifesto, nor did I vote Labour. I just couldn't be bothered trying to pick a historical analogy for the progressive lowering of political expectations, which is what I really dislike. I could make similar points for the right, though (especially in the US) they tend to be more successful at incrementally working towards a long-term goal where the left usually just abandon hope after a few losses.

All the Labour infighting makes me sad, but I have recently realised that this has been standard for as long as there has been a Left. Look at the schism between Marx and Proudhon.

Marx was a wealthy lad that adopted the cause of the working class, whereas Proudhon was a pleb who adopted the rhetoric of bourgeois intellectuals.

The people on the left who best understand the correct long term strategy are the least socially connected to the masses, whereas the people who are most apt at rallying the populace are not generally so prone to this kind of holistic thinking or long term strategy.

IMO University educated middle class Labour idealists would do better to be campaigning in Tory heartlands instead of alienating Northerners, but I am also a cynic and everything is terrible.

There is a lot of "well fuck this I'm taking my ball and going home" on the left, in general, to be very vague and abstract about it all. That's why there are so many shit little splinter parties that will only ever see a couple of thousand votes.

Too many of these people fail to realise the merits of the "big umbrella" or whatever the fuck they call it of the Labour Party. Fair enough it might be run by people you'd spit on as little more than common garden market liberals, but you're not going to pull them left from the outside of the party.

Funnily enough most of these people were pro-EU and always made the argument "but we're better off trying to change it from within!" when challenged by the fundamentally neo-liberal nature of that institution; but when it comes to the Labour party they're all about cancelling their membership and fucking off to vote Socialist Workers Democratic Worker's Democratic Socialist Party Party because Keith is a big evil racist.

The premise underlying 'Glasshouse' by Charles Stross is that there was a cryptological culture war in the past (our future) and as a result nobody in the present (also our future) knows anything about what happened in the past (possibly also our future).
