No-deal Brexit will ‘virtually stop’ cross-border trade in Northern Ireland, leaked memo warns

first_imgNorthern Ireland’s cross-border agriculture trade will “virtually stop” in the event of no-deal Brexit, according to a leaked UK government document.The document also warns that a no-deal Brexit could trigger “consumer panic”, food shortages and an increased security threat in the UK within a fortnight.Marked “official sensitive” and titled “What this could look like on the ground”, it also warns that UK nationals in the European Union could lose access to services and residence rights within the first 24 hours. According to the Irish Independent, the slide, prepared for ministers and obtained by Sky News, says the pound could fall in the first month while Northern Ireland may face law and order challenges.Picture: Sky NewsCharlie McConalogue, Fianna Fáil Agriculture spokesman, said: “I think it’s very important that the British Government recognises the impact of a no-deal because there has been a serious lack of awareness at senior government levels in the UK.“Northern Ireland has been seen as an inconvenience from a Brexiteer agenda and hasn’t been given serious consideration to date,” he said.“The two critical factors for us would be the issue of standards for agricultural products and livestock, and also the key issue of tariffs. “In the event of a hard Brexit, you would be looking at tariffs from both dairy and beef rising up to 50pc, which would have a massive impact overnight. This would result in a massive shock to trade and interconnective relationships between the north and south,” he added.No-deal Brexit will ‘virtually stop’ cross-border trade in Northern Ireland, leaked memo warns was last modified: August 3rd, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Soft Squid Ink Sac Claimed to Be 150 Million Years Old

first_img51; The BBC News announced the discovery of a fossil squid with its ink sac still intact.  “The fossil, thought to be 150 million years old, was found when a rock was cracked open, revealing the one-inch-long black ink sac.”  The ink has been sent to Yale for analysis.  An article on the Daily Mail UK shows a close-up of the ink sac and a drawing being made with the ink.  Reporter David Derbyshire wrote, “The odds of finding something as delicate as a squid’s ink sac intact after so long are put at a billion to one,” but he did not explain how the odds were calculated.    Dr. Phil Wilby of the British Geological Survey (shown in a report on the Metro UK explained why this fossil was so surprising.  “They can be dissected as if they are living animals, you can see the muscle fibres and cells.  It is difficult to imagine how you can have something as soft and sloppy as an ink sac fossilised in three dimension, still black, and inside a rock that is 150 million years old.”A group of old men were spinning their best yarns at a reunion, playing “Can you top this?”  The prize went to old Charlie, who said, “When I was a young scuba diver, I found an old Spanish galleon off the coast of Bermuda.  It was dark and cold and looked downright haunted.  So I slithered through an opening and got inside.  Then I saw a faint glow and went toward it, and…”  The others leaned forward with anticipation.  “So what did you find, Charlie?” asked Hubert.  “I went around a corner, down a hatch, and found this old lantern, and the light was still lit!”    If you don’t believe Charlie’s story, then why would you believe Uncle Phil’s tale that this ink sac is 150 million years old, and “The structure is similar to ink from a modern squid so we can write with it.”  Indeed, the article features a sketch made of the creature, with its Latin name, drawn with the ink they found in the fossil.  Try writing with one of the old dried up pens in your desk.  Inventing a term “the Medusa Effect” for the long-lasting fossilization of soft tissue is a euphemism for “We haven’t got a clue!”    What does this tell you about the so-called Jurassic Era you’ve heard about all your life?  What does this do to the rest of the geologic column?  What does this do to the evolutionary belief system built on the vast ages of time they treat as scientific fact?  Get real.  If fossil squid ink is still writeable today, we’ll give him a few thousand years, but not millions.  We know old Charlie had a knack for stretching the truth.(Visited 36 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

OneWebDay Celebrates the Internet as Public Utility on September 22, 2009

first_imgTags:#Events Guide#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… jolie odell Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Related Posts Events are occuring in around 20 countries and 50 cities around the world. The events map can be seen at the OneWebDay website. Tomorrow, annual event OneWebDay, which began in 2006 as a general celebration of the web, will be devoted to examining broadband as a fundamental necessity of modern life.Mozilla Foundation founder Mitch Kapor said in a press release, “Ultimately, we want to ensure that anyone who wants it has access to the Internet and, importantly, the skills they need to fully participate. The ability to access and use a fast, affordable, and open Internet is essential for every student, every entrepreneur, and every citizen who wants full access to our government and the democratic process.”OneWebDay has been working with national organizations prominent in Internet advocacy. In addition to supporting Mozilla’s Service Week, which ended yesterday, OneWebDay is also working with the Media & Democracy Coalition, which will be nationally releasing a report called “A Public Interest Internet Agenda” on September 22 with support from the U.S. Public Interest Research Group (USPIRG) state chapters.OneWebDay 2008 focused on political participation and civic engagement. But this year’s theme is less about the web as a privilege to be used for social good and more about the web as a public utility on par with electricity and running water – something that should be extended to all citizens to allow them to function in society.“It’s no accident that there was $7.2 billion allocated for broadband in the stimulus bill,” said OneWebDay executive director Nathaniel James.“Everyone understands that the Internet is the pathway to economic opportunity, from educational achievement to success on the job. Even finding and applying for a job requires online skills and access.”James also noted that OneWebDay volunteers were sent into less-wired communities to help create more public Internet access. “This year we are rolling up our sleeves in a big way to install hardware and do trainings that will make a difference right now for people who are getting left behind.”The organization has provided this video on how we as a culture and society can “overcome the digital divide.”last_img read more

Mourinho rules out De Gea to Madrid

first_imgTransfers ‘It makes no sense’ – Mourinho rules out selling De Gea to Real Madrid Dejan Kalinic 09:39 2/11/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) David de Gea Manchester United Everton Getty Transfers Real Madrid José Mourinho David de Gea Newcastle United v Manchester United Manchester United Premier League Primera División As the goalkeeper continues to be linked with the Spanish giants, the Manchester United boss made it clear that his club were not looking to sell Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho insisted it made “no sense” for the Premier League giants to sell reported Real Madrid target David de Gea.De Gea continues to be linked with a switch to the La Liga giants, having almost joined Madrid in mid-2015.The 27-year-old has been happy to delay contract talks with the Old Trafford outfit , though Mourinho has made it clear that the club are looking to extend their Spanish star .  Article continues below Editors’ Picks Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player The Portuguese boss sounded even more defiant when asked about the persistent rumours on Saturday, questioning why a club like Man United with huge ambition would ever want to let a player of De Gea’s quality leave.”Do you think a club that is trying to attract the best players is the club that is open to sell the best players? It makes no sense,” he said.Mourinho believes that his club has been able to attract top players in recent transfer windows and has no intention of letting other clubs poach their talent. “If you want to go to that level you have to attract the best players like we did with Alexis [Sanchez], [Nemanja] Matic and [Paul] Pogba and so on.”And don’t let our best players go.”De Gea has helped Mourinho’s side into second in the Premier League this season, though they trail runaway leader Manchester City by 16 points. They can close the gap a bit with a win over Newcastle United on Sunday. Mourinho’s side are also still fighting in the FA Cup and the Champions League, with Huddersfield on tap in the fifth round of the former and Sevilla the opponent in the last 16 of the latter.last_img read more

Grant might be the fastest player available in the upcoming NFL Draft. According to multiple people in attendance at Auburn’s pro day, Grant ran a sub-4.3 40-yard dash. Hearing unofficial 40 chatter of 4.27 and 4.28 for AU RB Corey Grant.

Price of a home up 108 per cent from year ago in

first_imgTORONTO – Canada’s residential real estate market saw strong but slowing year-over-year price growth in the fourth quarter of 2017, according to a report by Royal LePage.The real estate company said that based on data in 53 markets, the price of a home in Canada increased 10.8 per cent year-over-year to $626,042 in the quarter.Broken down by housing type, Royal LePage said the median price of a two-storey home rose 11.1 per cent year-over-year to $741,924, and the median price of a bungalow climbed 7.1 per cent to $522,963.But the company said in its report released Wednesday that the median price of a condo grew faster than any other housing type studied, rising 14.3 per cent to $420,823 on a year-over-year basis due to gains in many of the largest markets.In the Greater Toronto Area, the median price of a condo grew 19.5 per cent year-over-year to $476,421, while in the City of Toronto, the cost of a condo rose 19.6 per cent to $515,578.In Greater Vancouver, condominiums followed a similar pattern during the quarter, rising 20.2 per cent to $651,885, while the median price of a condo unit in the City of Vancouver rose 18.7 per cent to $775,806.In a separate report that examined luxury home sales, Sotheby’s International Realty said sales in the Greater Toronto Area of homes over $1 million in 2017 slowed in the second half of the year following a move by the Ontario government to cool the market.Sales of homes over $1 million in the GTA in the second half of the year were down 56 per cent compared with the first six months of 2017 and down 33 per cent compared with the second half of 2016.However, sales of homes over $1 million in the region for all of 2017 were up five per cent compared with 2016 due to the hot start to the year and strong condo sales. Sales of condos over $1 million in Canada’s largest city climbed 59 per cent compared with 2016, while sales of those over $4 million rose 82 per cent.Sotheby’s CEO Brad Henderson said the condo market’s strength is persisting because there’s a “scarce” number of affordable, family homes in the city and surrounding regions, and increasing numbers of empty-nesters looking to move closer to their kids downtown.“The condo market will continue to be a strong and resilient class of real estate,” Henderson said.“It is a much more affordable opportunity, even in the luxury level, and there is considerable demand.”Calgary saw overall home sales over $1 million increase 11 per cent year-over-year, while sales in the $1 million-plus real estate market increased 20 per cent in Montreal.Meanwhile, Sotheby’s said sales of homes over $1 million in Vancouver fell five per cent compared with 2016, while those over $4 million fell by 33 per cent.Royal LePage said the GTA showed signs of slowing as 2017 drew to a close, notably in the single-family detached segment.In the fourth quarter, the median price of a two-storey home and bungalow in Toronto and surrounding area fell by 2.0 and 2.4 per cent respectively on a quarter-over-quarter basis.The company says condos were the only segment to appreciate on a quarter-over-quarter basis among all housing types, rising 1.1 per cent in the final three months of the year.At the same time, the price of two-storey homes and bungalows fell 0.3 and 0.2 per cent quarter-over-quarter, respectively.“To prospective homeowners in our largest cities, condominiums represent the last bastion of affordability,” said Royal LePage president and CEO Phil Soper.“This is especially true for first-time buyers whose purchasing power has been reduced by tightening mortgage regulations.”last_img read more
