    As reported here Over the weekend, the temperature in central Tokyo rose above 35C, while the city of Isesaki, northwest of the capital, saw a record 40.2C. That was the highest temperature ever recorded in June for Japan. June marks the start of summer in Japan, with temperatures typically staying below 30C during the month. https://www.bbc.com/news/business-61947315

    European Union - In Or Out?

    An interesting read, although some of us warned that Boris had a previous history of being a liar "There will be no non-tariff barriers to trade" — Boris Johnson. This claim, already widely reported and called out for being plain wrong, came during the prime minister's news conference on December 24, the day the post-Brexit trade deal with the EU was announced. The text of his statement is on the 10 Downing Street website. The prime minister also claimed that the deal "will if anything allow our companies and our exporters to do even more business with our European friends". Asked later to explain this assertion, Johnson cited the UK's greater autonomy to help its own businesses, "whilst not having any barriers to trade with the EU". The truth is that the UK's voluntary exit from the EU Single Market and Customs Union brings a plethora of non-tariff barriers to trade between Britain and the continent. The UK government's own website details the many changes for exporters and importers. At GB-EU borders there are customs declarations to be filled out, rules of origin checks to undergo, regulatory controls, health checks and more. https://www.euronews.com/my-europe/2021/01/05/brexit-trade-deal-nine-claims-by-boris-johnson-or-his-ministers-that-are-untrue

    European Union - In Or Out?

    I guess you could say it is a minor irritation, but it is one that was unnecessary. Just like all the hurdles that now stand in front of businesses who deal with Europe, or those who need workers to help out, and all that new red tape at the border One by one these minor and be fair, some are not so small, will break the camels back
  4. If they believe someone standing at a Quiet area of a busy international airport at the right time, as backing up their conspiracy, they will basically believe anything without checking, as long as it makes them feel comfortable in their extreme views Ok it might not be actually true atm, but it shows what is waiting for us in the future......blah, blah, blah Or an alternative might be, it was just a joke to trigger the woke communist brigade And if all else fails......i will just put you on ignore with the rest of the commies
  5. Toby Rogers Toby Rogers has a Ph.D. in political economy from the University of Sydney in Australia. How can a community that nurtures the deadly dangers of antivaccination claim to care about lives? https://www.holliehughes.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Lucy-Carne-Brisbane-Times-Anti-Vaccination-Movement-for-Justice-21-June-20202.pdf
  6. See some criticism of the track etc from Denmark Apparently Lars Munkedal commentating on Eurosport said the track was dangerous. Others have commentated that Teterow is never a GP quality track As an aside, in Germany there was a fair bit of criticism for the whole weekend. Basically poor organisation . Poor facilities, running out of drinks

    Football 2021/22

    Manchester United have rejected an attempt from Barcelona to sign England centre-back Harry Maguire, 29, as part of the deal to bring Netherlands midfielder Frenkie de Jong, 25, to Old Trafford The world has gone mad. They should have snapped their hand off at the offer

  9. This one is too good to only post once on the climate thread. Well it could be used for so many threads here Don't let facts get in the way of a good conspiracy, is the motto Sure, the week the cows died temperatures topped 104 degrees in Kansas and ranchers said the heat killed them. But that didn’t stop these Trump fans from making other reasons up https://www.thedailybeast.com/trumpsters-claim-dead-cows-are-proof-of-a-nefarious-plot-to-starve-americans

  11. The current birth rate for Uae in 2022 is 10.019 births per 1000 people, a 0.9% decline from 2021. The birth rate for Uae in 2021 was 10.110 births per 1000 people, a 0.88% decline from 2020. The birth rate for Uae in 2020 was 10.200 births per 1000 people, a 0.88% decline from 2019. https://www.macrotrends.net/countries/ARE/uae/birth-rate#:~:text=The current birth rate for,a 0.88% decline from 2019.
  12. They all used the same vaccines in the West, so we should see the same patterns occuring everywhere, with births, deaths etc and it would be even more pronounced in places like Gibraltar and UAE which had a theoretical 100% vaccination rate The onset of the pandemic was initially associated with a decline in the number of births, particularly from November 2020 to February 2021. Yet from March 2021 onward, the number of monthly births recovered and sometimes exceeded 2019 levels, particularly in the last quarter of 2021. This is despite there having been a second wave of the pandemic in the UK in late 2020 and early 2021. For England and Wales, the average fertility rate in 2021 was 1.61 children per woman compared with 1.58 in 2020 – the first time since 2012 this figure has increased from one year to the next. This recovery might be explained by births taking place where conception had been postponed during the first lockdown. Or perhaps birth rates had reached their lowest point and would have increased, anyway. https://theconversation.com/effect-of-lockdowns-on-birth-rates-in-the-uk-181472

  18. Ah that is just your usual word salad. I am sure Dean will come back with a more educated reply backed with some medical/scientific facts rather than something he heard down the pub
