Only of it is managed properly can redirect that money in the right place. The money isn't being spent on extra beds, it is not being spent on extra staff, there is no predicted increase in staff numbers. So if this extra money is coming in, my question is, where is it going? Because those workers on the front line are certainly not seeing the effects of extra money in terms of extra resources to look at the patients - where is it going? Thanks for joining us, good to see you, thank you.

There is a painting on the curved wall lining the staircase. I found two different photos with two different paintings, and judging by the other elements in the photos it's the same staircase, so apparently he gets bored and swaps the paintings out every so often. But the theme remains the same: Both of these are images from Peter Jackson's popular "Lord of the Rings" trilogy. There aren't any publicly-available photos of the upper floors, so I'm afraid our tour ends here. But one thing I want to mention: *Some folks are angry that it is costing taxpayers $1 million per day to guard White House North, arguing that Trump's wife and child should live at the White House, relieving New York City of the financial burden. However, the Trumps have decided that their son should be allowed to finish the year at his current school. We can all criticize Trump for his policies and views, but we oughtn't question whatever decisions are made for the sake of his own family.

Though he died tragically at the age of 27, today marks what would have been Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain's 50th birthday. To celebrate the occasion, here are 25 things you should know about the alternative rock icon and his legendary band. 1. KURT COBAIN DROPPED OUT OF HIGH SCHOOL, THEN WORKED THERE AS A JANITOR. Getty Images Even though he was by all accounts a slob, Kurt Cobain worked as a janitor at Weatherwax High School , not long after dropping out of that very school. The dancing janitor in the "Smells Like Teen Spirit" music video was an inside joke for those who knew of Cobain's old job. 2. THE TITLE FOR ABOUT A GIRL" CAME ABOUT VERY QUICKLY. Chad Channing, one of Nirvana's drummers before Dave Grohl, claimed that one day he asked Cobain what the song was about. "About a girl," was Cobain's reply. "Why don't you just call it that?" The girl in question was Cobain's girlfriend, Tracy Marander , who asked why he wrote about everything—including Floyd the Barber from The Andy Griffith Show —but her.

I think the difficulty is, this is cumulative, it's one thing after another with Mr Nuttall during this by-election campaign. Obviously, you go back to the controversy over whether he really did play professional football, whether he did have a PhD, most recently whether he was offered a board on a training company in the North West and now this. This is continual drip-dripping of question marks frankly about his credibility which you sense is probably denting his prospects in the by-election and more than that, his standing as leader.

Gavin Lee is in Brussels. Or what, Gavin, is he saying if they don't come up with the money, they won't be as protected as they were before? I think it's all question marks. It's being left out there. This was a similar thing that happened a few days ago when the Defence Secretary was in Brussels at NATO and said basically more countries have to put their hands in their pockets and pay more money or we'll look to moderate what we do.

Marty McFly and the Doc could be in trouble if they arrived in Cornwall after local police proved their humorous side when asked about car modifications by stating that although it was not illegal to fit a flux capacitor they would take a dim view on anyone who fit a fusion reactor to power it. A Devon and Cornwall Police employee has been praised for the witty response to a question posted on its Facebook page about car modifications which refers to the 1980's film Back To The Future and the...

In the last few days T he New York Times has run several opinion pieces from the Israeli or American Zionist point of view. We've seen none from Palestinians. Last Wednesday was a low point. Right alongside Tom Friedman urging Donald Trump to save the Jews from division over Israel, the Times ran a piece called, A Settler's View of Israel's Future , by Yishai Fleshler, international spokesperson for the illegal settler community in Hebron. The very-Jewish-centric New York Times last Wednesday The article included a bible lecture about why the two-state solution was dead: Judea and Samaria belong to the Jewish people. Our right to this land is derived from our history, religion, international decisions and defensive wars. But as for the fundamental question what are you going to do about all the Palestinians? Fleshler offered five ideas, all from Israeli Jews.

.. LAUGHTER Or all will work out well which is scarcely more reassuring. In view of these developments, how then should this House approach the Bill before us? Can we and should we seek to simply send it on its way or can we and should we seek to amend it? On the first question, the answer is crystal clear. We do have the power to ask the Commons to think again on any piece of legislation large or small.

Nevertheless, the Post castigates Trump for drawing attention to the illegality of the leaks. And it goes on emphatically to «demand answers about his opaque and increasingly troubling ties with Moscow». The dubious priority here is not to question the ethics of leaking classified information, but rather to push the vapid, unverifiable hearsay that impugns the president for allegedly having private communications with the Russians. Trump has flatly denied that any such contacts were ever made during his campaign. Ironically, the connection to Watergate is more than it might appear to be. That scandal is commonly thought of as a «high point» of American journalism, in which intrepid reporters from the Washington Post dared to help bring down a Republican president for involvement in «dirty tricks» against Democrats hatched in 1972. A more nuanced account is given by author Russ Baker, in his book Family of Secrets about the Bush dynasty and the CIA.

A bigger question though is whether these states have been consulted on paying for the program yet, as Trump had similarly suggested Mexico would pay for his border wall without getting Mexico to agree to it first. While the safe zones were expected to be a costly effort, that was only part of the concern surrounding them, with bigger questions surrounding the large number of US ground troops needed to secure that area, and whether efforts to impose no-fly zones over such areas would bring the US into direct war with Russia and Syria. © Antiwar.com The post Trump Says Gulf States Will Pay For Syria Safe Zones appeared first on MintPress News .

As for the glass, it is significant, because a number of injured were badly cut and a lot of people were thrown from the tram carriages. There is a big question, should glass have been stronger, like on trains, and could that have prevented so many being injured and so many dying? Thanks.

The scientific value of classifying Zealandia as a continent is much more than just an extra name on a list, the scientists explained. That a continent can be so submerged yet unfragmented makes it a useful and thought-provoking geodynamic end member in exploring the cohesion and breakup of continental crust. This kind of reminds me of hearing that Pluto was a planet, and then that Pluto wasn't a planet, and then... it's hard to keep up. However, the team says Zealandia should be considered a geological continent, which really just makes me question everything we think we know about geology. But really, how human of us to not have all the answers, right? The researchers said the continent used to be considered a collection of continental islands and fragments. “Based on various lines of geological and geophysical evidence, particularly those accumulated in the last two decades, we argue that Zealandia is not a collection of partly submerged continental fragments but is a coherent 4.
