It has been confirmed this afternoon that Cornwall's iconic outdoor swimming pool, Jubilee Pool, will not reopen as expected this weekend. Readers of The Cornishman may be confused after reading this morning's front page about the pool being set to reopen on Saturday May 27 for the start of the season - but the very disappointing news has only just been confirmed. Director of Jubilee Pool Community Benefit Society, David Hoyes, has revealed that at the latter stages of the...

But I feel like that I have to kind of go to heart and this kind of correlates with blood pressure ... So just kinda keep that in mind, I have a couple people who kind of came through and acknowledged passing in a bit of a similar sense. It's almost saying like, ‘Keep in mind your own heart.'" Keep in mind, Alan had a clean bill of health and no history of heart disease in his family, so this reading was obviously a little random at the time. Ch-ch-check out E!

George Cheese, 18, was locked in cage and had his clothes set on fire by colleagues at company in Reading before his death An Audi garage where an apprentice mechanic was bullied before he killed himself was not to blame for his death, a coroner has decided. George Cheese’s coworkers at the Reading garage locked him in a cage, doused him in brake fluid and set his clothes set on fire, among other forms of abuse, an inquest into his death heard. One told him he should “hurry up and kill himself”. Continue reading...

President Donald Trump is on his way to leaving a conservative imprint on the federal judiciary with the confirmation of Amul Thapar, his first judge to the lower courts, and a renewed willingness from Republicans to sidestep a century-old custom involving judicial nominees. The Senate voted 52-44 on Thursday to install Thapar, a favorite of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), at the Cincinnati-based 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The confirmation marked the first judicial nominee aside from now-Justice Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court for Trump, who came into office with an usually higher number of judicial vacancies. “He has a reputation as a qualified judge with an impressive legal mind,” McConnell said of Thapar. “He will fairly apply the law to all who enter his courtroom because, in Judge Thapar’s own words, ‘the most important attribute of a judge is to be open-minded and not to prejudge a case without reading the briefs, researching the law, and hearing from the parties.

A house with a story THE cellar is flooded and Chris Ranalli worries about snakes. From the safety of the back door, he points out the sturdy walls—two feet thick, as if to withstand Mediterranean earthquakes—and the elegantly vaulted ceilings. “They lived in the top two storeys and made wine in the basement,” explains Mr Ranalli, who now tends the 100-year-old vineyard adjacent to the house. The view from the road is anomalous: framed by Catawba trees, the façade combines northern Italian architecture and Ozark stone, seeming to belong as much to the Apennines as Arkansas. This house tells a story that is both familiar and extraordinary, as the exploits of immigrants to America tend to be. It is a tale of struggle and success, of awful but commonplace suffering, villainy and heroes, including a dauntless priest who, like a latter-day Moses, led his flock to a new life in the mountains. It epitomises the variety behind the strip-mall, fast-food sameness... Continue reading

WHETHER or not their bid to reform health care succeeds, Republicans think Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act will founder. For years, critics of the law have said that its health-insurance markets will enter a “death spiral” in which rising premiums drive out healthy buyers, forcing premiums higher still. “Obamacare is absolutely deadPresident Donald Trump told The Economist on May 4th. If he is right, calamity looms. Eighteen million Americans buy insurance for themselves, rather than through an employer; it is this part of the insurance market that looks wobbly. Mr Trump thinks its collapse would force Democrats to join his reform effort. And he is putting his money where his mouth is. Indeed, his administration is part of the problem. Insurers raised premiums in the individual market by an average of 22% in 2017. They had been caught out by the poor health of enrollees on Obamacare’s “exchanges”, websites that serve a little over... Continue reading

The broadcast on the page of Gaza Now, a local news outlet, raises further questions over Facebook’s ability to moderate violent content at a time when its moderation procedures are under scrutiny following leaks of files on how the company deals with controversial and offensive material .

com, the price of a house in New York’s Staten Island or Brooklyn starts from $590,000. “So, as a non-millionaire documentary filmmaker making movies in Ukraine, it seemed like a great way to fulfill a dream I've had since first reading (Lev) Tolstoy as a teenager — to have a summer getaway from which to go hiking, mushroom hunting, and berry picking,” Gracia said. “I also happen to think it's a great investment — but only time will tell if that is correct,” he added. How to buy Gracia said that all a foreign citizen needs to do to buy a land plot for residential construction is to obtain a Ukrainian tax code, a notary and employ the services either of a good local friend or a lawyer to help resolve any issues that might come up during negotiations. Of course, buyers will need a real estate agent as well if you don't know people who want to sell to you directly.

People's deputies on May 25 refused to adopt as a whole the bill on limited liability companies (No. 466), sending it to second reading. According to an Interfax-Ukraine correspondent, 184 people's deputies voted for the adoption of the document with the quorum being 226 votes, after which it was sent for revision by 235 votes. Before this, the Rada failed to confirm a number of amendments supported by the relevant committee on economic policy. Its head Andriy Ivanchuk noted rejection of these amendments worsens the bill, but if accepted, it would still be a significant step in improving corporate legislation in Ukraine, in which the activities of limited liability companies are still regulated by only 14 articles of the law on business entities dated 1991. The bill on limited liability companies was supposed to settle the most massive form of doing business in Ukraine, since there are about 500,000 limited liability companies compared to 16,000 joint-stock companies.
