Given the amount of combustible materials such as timber and thatch used in property construction, and the lack of useful fire-fighting equipment, it is not surprising that many townsfolk in Retford experienced the consuming lick of flames running amok amidst their dwellings in the 16th and 17th centuries, writes Roy Mann.Uniquely among towns of similar size, Retford suffered three conflagrations between 1528 and 1642, two of which almost totally destroyed the town, and citizens began to believe...

“While all Sharbanou centres have been following identical instructions up to now, we will pay attention to the demands of every district of Tehran in our future plans in 2017,” Atayi added. “We try to offer our services based on women’s needs in different districts, according to their financial, cultural and educational levels.” She went on to say that the Municipality of Tehran has decided to establish two Shahrbanou centres in every district; a plan which has yet to be carried out so far. “This is one of our long-term plans which requires money and time. It has been implemented in the 8th and 14th districts. A centre is to be launched in Tehran’s 16th district due in March 2017. An exclusive park for women will also be opened in the fourth district, Lavizan, in February.”

IN 2014 Mozambique seemed a good place to host the IMF’s “Africa Risingconference. The economy was buoyant, having grown by about 7% a year for a decade. Offshore gas promised riches. Investors were optimistic, so much so that, in 2013, they snapped up $850m of bonds issued by a state-owned tuna-fishing company, with temptingly high yields. But Mozambique’s rise has halted. Those “tuna bonds” were the first mis-step in a widening scandal that led the government to say on January 16th that it would default on its debt. The government’s financial difficulties arise partly from a downturn in commodity prices that caused economic growth to slump to 3.4% in 2016 (though it should improve this year). Yet the main reason the government is in a pickle is its own fecklessness. The state-owned tuna company that issued the bonds never caught many fish.

" Colonel Ahmed al-Taie from the 16th army division fighting around northern Mosul estimates U.S. support is responsible for half of all battlefield gains. "Without the Americans' support, it would have been tough to reverse the tide against Daesh in Iraq," he said. When Iraqi commanders from all the Mosul fronts met in December to break deadlock on the battlefield, the Americans were on hand to lend advice. Combined operations Lieutenant Colonel Ed Matthaidess says his most productive work as an adviser is done each night after the guns fall silent and he sits with his Iraqi counterparts. Over countless cups of sugary black tea, the officers pore over maps and data, discussing what went right and wrong that day and how to adjust strategy. Reuters gained unprecedented access late last month to three locations where hundreds of U.S. troops are deployed, including one of their most forward outposts in Bartella where Matthaidess operates.

"AC Milan were in the top five in 2002/03 so their decline (they are 16th and even passed by rivals Roma) has been relatively steady over the past 13 years. "It kind of reflects the inability to generate new revenues in Italy both commercially and matchday, antiquated stadia being one of the issues. "Inter Milan (19th) are almost certainly going to drop out and there is a real danger the same can happen to AS Roma and AC Milan." — AFP

A Few Of My Favorite Things About Paris France has always been serious about collecting tax revenues. Starting in the 16th century and continuing until the French Revolution, the country took a privatized, entrepreneurial approach. Tax collection was farmed out to private individuals who bid for their positions. In exchange for their concessions, these citizen tax collectors paid fees to the king. Whatever each collected beyond the fee he'd agreed with the crown was his to keep. As the country and its population grew, each collector found he was unable to cover his entire territory effectively alone and so farmed out pieces of it to subcontractors, creating, over these centuries, an early tax-collection Amway. For a time (until Louis XVI and his wife found out what happened when the tax monies stopped flowing), both the tax collectors at the tops of these pyramids and the king himself enjoyed abundances of capital, some of the greatest fortunes of Europe for the period.

I'd love to know which sells best. "Princess Kate's Secret Bulimia Battle" might be a better exclusive in the 'Enquirer' if they hadn't reported on her alleged eating disorder so many times before. Singer Kenny Rogers' "cancer nightmare" revealed in the 'Globe' might also seem a little fresher if they hadn't accompanied the story with a photo Rogers posted on social media explaining that he had cancer back in 2014, when he had skin cancer removed from his face. The National Examiner' brings us the oldest story in this week's tabloids, however - more than 460 years old, to be precise - reporting Nostradamus's predictions for 2017. The 16th century French physician and tabloid favorite predicted nuclear war, a giant planet approaching Earth, the largest earthquake ever to hit the U.S., the growth of solar power, a truce between Ukraine and Russia, and commercial space travel in orbit around Earth for the year ahead.

We’ve restored cars together and raced cars together. It’s just been a huge part of our upbringing. AG: Love the family effort. What was your first car? AB: My first car was, believe it or not, a 1972 Mini, which I bought when I was just 15 years old. I love that car. I’ve loved it ever since the day I first laid eyes on it. We found it in a shed rotting away and we brought it home and rescued it. That was right before my 16th birthday. I had really wanted to restore something for a while. That’s the first car I got in to. Got my hands dirty and really understood how it all worked. What made it tick, what went where, and really getting down to the nitty gritty. A few years after that, a friend approached me who had a Mini lying around in his yard. He didnt have the space or the time to restore it so he gave it to me. That car is an earlier one, a 1964, we had a guess.
