I've just got me a Dash Cam !

Jul 27, 2016 - 1:20 PM - by G#Gill
G#Gill's Avatar
I've seen videos on YouTube concerning the use of dash cams (for the uninitiated - a webcam that is secured by suction on the vehicle windscreen and videos the road ahead). I have been amazed at all the different incidents that dash cams can record, and of course are acceptable in a court of law !

I have thought about obtaining one for our own use, as I could see the potential benefit to us should some other motorist decide to crash into us etc, or other motorists have a... [Read More]

Repercussions......

Jul 26, 2016 - 6:21 AM - by Bruv
Bruv's Avatar
Whatever the reasons, and they are complicated, there is fear afoot throughout Europe.
In the UK there is a rise in what is euphemistically called 'Hate crime' following brexit.
Throughout Europe mainly France and Germany blood is being spilled almost daily in yet more atrocities. There is a rise in sex assaults and rapes across the continent............most of these problems are laid at the feet of Islam.
Today a French church has been targeted with at least one death.

It's English, it's out of budgetary control, it's already overpriced by a factor of ten, the rug needs pulling out from under the bloated profiteer designers and contractors. Then we should jail a few people for fraud to warn off the next set of incompetents.

It's called High Speed 2.

It consists of a single rail line from London to Manchester with a spur to Leeds. That's 350 miles.

I have aging parents, 80 and 78 I am extremely close to them.
Can anyone prepare for the end? I mean as the children of the parents?
Frankly I am terrified to loose either of them. I know it is going to happen, I do my best to not let this consume me.
15 years ago I lost my then father in law and I could barely manage.
My parents do talk openly about their dwindling time on this planet but they are not all doom and gloom about it, this helps me but I get these... [Read More]

A coming attempt murder

914.Attempt murder (7/23/2016)

Out of massive murder plots the Feds planned, this "falling death" of roofing incident has years' long history.

My wife signed the roofing contract on 7/17. That day she suggested to cut off a tree in front house. I remembered the broken apple tree. see #909. Resonance to damage (2). The apple tree, was in back yard, a few feet to neighbor's house, so was easy to break under acoustic weapon radiation. The front tree, faces... [Read More]

Those who pay for education should consider the benefits of a bonus system for students.

We have been watching the Canadian and U.S. national level of education stall in the doldrums, as compared to other nations. Not shamefully so but irritatingly so. We need to reverse this slow slide.

We, Western citizens of rich nation, are not serving our students well. We pay our teachers; we should consider paying our students, --- who, --- after a good service rendered by... [Read More]

PCOS and heredity

Jul 23, 2016 - 12:45 PM - by Katya
Hi, everybody! I am a mother of the awesome 3-year-old girl. At present, my husband and I are trying to conceive the second child. When my daughter was one year old, her breast started to grow. The doctors diagnosed her with early sexual development. When I got pregnant and the ultrasound checkup revealed that I will have a daughter, my gynecologist warned me that it's a great possibility that my daughter will inherit PCOS. The gynecologist who treats my daughter also proved this idea. My hubby... [Read More]

Alone

season 2 just wrapped up, has anyone watched this show?
I have found it quite fascinating.
10 people left to survive alone 4 - 5 kilometers from each other, alone as individuals until the last man is "standing". They are helicopter dropped into various bays, on Northern Vancouver Island, they are allowed to bring a limited number of survival items and are left to fend and forage for themselves.
It is quite the cool insight to the human being.

This is not so much a movie review but more to open a discussion on body image and body shaming that our kids not never before are dealing with.

Its targeted at kids between 10 and 15 ( and everybody else) to show them that body shape and appearance has nothing to do with sameness but diversity......beauty comes from being different from one another.

Unfortunetly its recieved a MA15+ rating which misses its targeted audience but probably a good thing so parents... [Read More]

Hermann Hauser said he was "very sad" at news of the £24bn ($32bn) takeover which was announced on Monday morning.

The Cambridge-based firm designs microchips used in most smartphones, including Apple's and Samsung's.
