I am not convinced with HS2. We have far more important things to do. Certainly we should not spend all our money on a rail line that will be, in my opinion, outdated in 10- 15 years.

It is not just commuters who stand to gain from the new railway. We average around 10,000 jobs over the first phase of the instruction, peaking at 25,000 jobs a month. And that is just during construction. There will be tens of thousands maintaining and running it when we are done. That could mean even greater economic benefit. Take this journey, for example.

In thousands or millions of years we could live on them. If they are not populated. How long to get to them? We found an exciting planet in our next-door neighbour star last year. With conventional technology and travelling at 10.

12 active points on a licence usually means a driver will be banned for a minimum of six months. But figures obtained by the BBC show that just under 10,000 drivers are still on the roads despite having 12 or more points. Most are found in England, with the largest number being in Greater London. Although one driver in west Yorkshire is still on the road despite having more than 60 points on their licence.

Is it something you back and visit achievable? Not really. The idea of the study was seeing what the maximum protection you could get. Five is a good foundation for health and protecting disease and 10 is better if it was achievable. Not realistic for most. A third of Britons don't eat enough fruit and veg as it is.

It was the biggest win of my career and one of the best days of my life, for sure. It was focusing on me and my tennis rather than who I was playing because playing a top-10 player, she has gotten to number two in the world, she is a great player and a champion so really focusing on myself and my game.

They are saying that this is not a negotiation tactic, this is just what they need to do to keep the business afloat.

SAINTTIENNE: Henrikh Mkhitaryan scored but was then forced off with a hamstring injury as Manchester United cruised into the Europa League last 16 with a 1-0 win at St Etienne on Wednesday. That completed a 4-0 aggregate victory in the last 32 tie, although United finished the match with 10 men after Eric Bailly was dismissed for two yellow cards in quick succession. Manager Jose Mourinho will face an anxious wait ahead of Sunday's English League Cup final against Southampton at Wembley to see if his Armenian playmaker is fit. Mkhitaryan has been involved in five goalsscoring three and creating two – in his last six games and would have been a likely starter at Wembley. Despite leading 3-0 from the first leg at Old Trafford last week, Mourinho showed how highly he values success in this competition – which offers a route into next season's Champions League to the winners – by picking a strong starting line-up.

It also meets the needs of SMEs that require small financing needs (between RM50,000 and RM500,000), fast disbursal (one week) and a simple hassle-free application process. “Banks like to give big (quantum), long (tenure) and cheap (lower interest rates) loans but it’s slow. We’re almost the opposite. We’re small (quantum), short (tenure) and more expensive (higher interest rate of 10-18%), but fast. We’re willing to give credit to a bigger segment of SMEs that banks are not going to do,” said Teo, adding that it sees itself as complementing banks. Funding Societies, run by Modalku Ventures Sdn Bhd, is one of six P2P operators recognised and regulated by the Securities Commission Malaysia. Funding Societies has a 2% default rate, being one of the lowest in the region. “Compared with Singapore, Malaysia is a riskier market from a credit perspective and we expect credit default rates to be potentially higher.

A new study on an ancient ice sheet may hold important clues about our planet's future. The research focuses on the Laurentide Ice Sheet, the massive expanse covering North America during the last Ice Age, which ended about 10,000 years ago. A team of scientists found that small spikes in the temperature of the ocean not the air likely caused periods of rapid melting and splintering of the ice. SEE ALSO: This GOT' star teamed up with Google to capture Greenland's melting ice Their findings add to a growing body of evidence that climate change could ultimately drive sea levels even higher than today's models predict, according to the study published Feb. 15 in the journal Nature. Glaciers in Greenland, Antarctica and other areas have been melting rapidly in recent years due in part to increasing ocean temperatures. Read more...

Compared to the competition, the Fugoo Go just cant match the bass response of the Beats Pill+ or the JBL Charge 3 though, this shouldnt be much of a surprise when comparing the size of the speakers. The Fugoo Go is much flatter than either the Beats or JBL, so limited bass response is expected. The UE Roll 2 is the Fugoo Gos natural competitor, but the UEs loose bass is frustrating. To our ears, the Fugoo sounds better. Battery life is average with up to 10 hours of playback at 50% volume, according to Fugoo. Our tests found this rating to be spot on. That said, when Fugoos own Style speaker gets 40 hours of battery life, the 10 hours you get from the Go seems frustratingly limited. Final verdict The Fugoo Go arent the prettiest or best sounding Bluetooth speakers out there but it remains an attractive package for sporty individuals looking for a speaker they can beat up.

Back in 1996, we reported on diesel "feeling the wrath of the environmental and health lobbies". So, how far have things progressed? Modern civilisation revolves around crude oil. Cars are one of the most visible uses for it, and therein lies the story of two brothers: petrol and diesel. They’re born of the same origin and differentiated by little other than the lengths of their carbon atom chains, yet diesel has a far dirtier (literally) image. After all, it’s estimated that despite being more fuel efficient and producing less CO2, diesels cough out as much as 10 times more polluting soot particles than equivalent petrol-engined cars. On 2 October 1996, Autocar’s Tony Lewin wrote about the uncertain future of the controversial fuel. Health issuesDiesel is set to become the environmental battle of the next decade,” we began. “Just as more car makers are turning to diesel power in order to meet stringent consumption targets, environmentalists and medical experts have come up with new warnings liking diesel particulate (PM) emissions with increased risk of respiratory diseases and cancer.
