Quite often we hear alarms going off, we don't quite know whether they are just a warning or if it's for real. So putting the human voice into that, I think is going to be one of the key important additional things that we'll bring to alarms in the future. Fire investigators stress that standard smoke alarms are still vital in every home. They do wake adults.

It's easier than ever to stay in touch on multiple platforms throughout the day, but that 24/7 availability is stressing Americans out . Four out of five adults say they constantly check their email, texts and social media, according to a new report by the American Psychological Association (APA). The APA polled about 3,500 adults in an online questionnaire during August 2016 and found that people who are always looking at their digital devicescalled constant checkersreported higher levels of stress compared to people who spend less time interacting with their gadgets. The amount of time people spend on social media also appears to be stressing people out. 42% of constant checkers report that social media conversations about politics and culture cause them stress, compared to 33% of people who check less often. Constant checkers also worry about how social media is affecting their wellbeing; 42% say they worry about how social media can impact their mental and physical health, yet only 27% of people who check less often say the same.

Emily asks The Thing what he wants, and he cries: “I lost my Cuddly!” So off go Emily and Stanley into the dark woods to try to retrieve Cuddly (which resembles a pink wash cloth). There are two other adventures they have to undertake – one is to travel to the refrigerator when the hungry Thing asks for milk, and the second, to look for a whiny witch to get some cough medicine when The Thing develops an irritating cough. It’s only when Emily and Stanley solve all of The Thing’s problems that they can finally get some shuteye. During a short interview session after the show, Buitekant explains that their shows are not just for children. “We say all our shows are family shows … Adults find the stories touching and fascinating, [as do] the children.” Alice adds: “People are amazed that there are so many things that we can do, with just the three of us and the puppets.

Though electric car sales are soaring in the UK, more must be done to make them cheaper and easier to charge, says industry body 2017-02-23 12:30 Carmakers and the Government must do more to make electric and plug-in cars cheaper to buy and easier to charge says the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT). This comes after a new study found that the lack of charging infrastructure and high prices are putting off potential buyers. According to research by YouGov, commissioned on behalf of the SMMT, 51 per cent of UK adults are keen to buy an electric car to save on their fuel bills, but just 13 per cent actually have one on their shopping list. Nearly half of the respondents said they were put off buying an electric car as they were worried about the lack of charging points near their home or at work, while another 41 per cent said they couldn't afford the higher purchase price.

The net result of Brexit thus far seems to be that the migration figures are falling. OK Jason, thank you very much.

Somewhere along the internet's path into content oblivion, Spiderman and Elsa videos on YouTube became a guaranteed and genuinely weird traffic winner. The premise is simple enough: Adults dress as characters from the Spiderman and Frozen franchise and act out wordless, often slightly violent skits to chirpy music. As TubeFilter noted in early February, these short films, ostensibly for children, have been racking up the views. Search Spiderman and Elsa" on YouTube and you get more than 6 million results. SEE ALSO: Runner loses race because apparently 'Spiderman attacked him' The videos are part of a surge of kid-friendly content on Youtube a trend the site itself has embraced via the Youtube Kids app (the main app is meant for people 13 and over). Videos of Kinder eggs being opened, toy reviews and yes, even Spiderman and Elsa skits aren't just niche, mind-melting internet fodder: they are a full-blown business. Read more...

They would have something to say about that, I am sure. Very briefly, if you could, there is no appeal process on this, against what President Trump has done. Not as now, could you not get round it at all by providing more unisex bathrooms that anybody could use if they wanted to? That would be fine foreign adults like myself.
