With our experience of more severe storms as climate change continues, flooding is only likely to get worse. We have seen recently in the high tides back came down the eastern side of the country, fortunately they did not cause massive flooding but can in future. I was flooded back in the 1980s and we lost a lot of sheep with huge tidal floods on the west of the country and when these barriers are overcome, you need the right infrastructure.

"Planting trees and agriculture are considered actions which hold both worldly good and benefit as well as immense rewards in the hereafter," said Akhundzada. It is an "uncommon move" for the group, which has recently published unsigned statements on a range of issues such as civilian casualties, upcoming military operations and the anniversary of the withdrawal of Soviet troops in the 1980s, says The Independent . The Taliban has been waging an insurgency against the government in Kabul and its Nato coalition backers since being ousted in 2001. After the withdrawal of most foreign combat troops in 2014 it made slow, steady gains, and is now believed to control more than 40 per cent of Afghanistan. Yet while it is mostly known for its insurgent attacks, the Taliban "retains its political aspirations and has often worked to provide basic services and assert connections in communities in areas it controls", says The Independent.

Alt Text Princess Diana From her debut as Lady Spencer to the final years of her royal duties, there was never a dull moment One-Minute Read Monday, February 27, 2017 - 11:22am Princess Diana’s glamour and elegance were timeless. From her first appearances in the early 1980s, Diana mesmerised the world with her eye-catching wardrobe choices, setting trends, inspiring women and putting the spotlight on British design. Ever aware of the impact of fashion, the Princess of Wales often used the media to her advantage, choosing when and where to make an impression with a statement garment. To mark the 20th anniversary of her death, a new exhibition and temporary garden has just opened at Kensington Palace that celebrates her life as a royal fashion icon. Titled Diana: Her Fashion Story, the exhibition tracks the Princess's style, from the demure, shy choices of her first public appearances to the glamorous, self-assured outfits of her later years.

Terri Lyne Carrington was pleased to be back in Hong Kong. She announced from the stage, as visiting performers often do, that she was particularly enjoying the food, and also that it was now a full 30 years since her last visit. On that occasion before her debut CD as a leader she came with Wayne Shorters band, appearing in one of the Live Under the Sky touring jazz festivals of the late 1980s which featured such major names as Miles Davis, Pat Metheny, and Herbie...

British jewellery designer Annoushka Ducas was destined to open a boutique in Hong Kong. She lived in the city in the 1980s, a time when she discovered her passion for jewellery design. Indeed, the first piece she designed (her art deco-inspired engagement ring) was made at jewellers KS Sze Sons, which, as it happens, is around the corner from her new boutique at the Mandarin Oriental. Isnt that a coincidence, she says with a laugh. In all honesty, we have such...

In 1983, there were 23 doses of 7 vaccines , but the recommended immunization schedule has since tripled to 69 doses of 16 vaccines. With Americans now being “required by law to use more vaccines than any other nation in the world , it is questionable and concerning that, before the 1970s, childhood autism rates remained steady at a rate of about four in ten thousand children. But despite three decades of steady increases since the 1980s, childhood autism, according to the CDC , has climbed to 1 in 68 or 1.5%. Furthermore, the activists that Trump has associated himself with are being unfairly stigmatized, and being referred to as anti-vaxxers, with all the negative connotations the term holds. Yet, investigations have shown that such people, who question and present evidence that there is a link between autism and vaccines, are typically highly educated and wealthy, and don't reject modern medicine at all.

The short answer, do we have an opposition in the House of Commons? Absolutely not. You mentioned by-elections. Opposition parties have work hard to lose a by-election against a sitting government. The last time - it happened once in the early 1980s, but Labour was splitting at the time.

The truth is, race plays no part in students plagiarising each other's work, which considering my studies, could have been pretty obvious from coding styles. And before we go any further, let me point out that I do not agree with racial profiling of students in academia. I know, it's probably not a popular viewpoint from a UiTM alumnus. Even if they know that for some reason we let foreigners in for international rankings rather than open it up to all races, and then hide under the guise of somehow "we need to protect the Malays". I'm digressing, of course. This talk is just too far from the intellectual stature of anyone who calls themselves a professor, or even a teacher. Subsequently, having such educators promoting such views will in fact extend those views for the next generation, and the one after that, till the end of time. However, to what end are we dealing with the issue of racial segregation in education, subsequently leading to racism? National schools in the late 1980s and early 1990s still had a diverse student population in primary and secondary schools.

It happened once in the early 1980s, but Labour was splitting at the time. It went so far to the left that it became serially unelectable, but the last real loss by an opposition party was in the 1960s.
