UK adverts were monitored, and there were 400,000 adverts. 400,000 adverts, related to the sale of animals being tracked. 58% of these were related to dogs. Estimates of as many as 88% of dark spawning Great Britain are bred by unlicensed breeders. Totally unacceptable. The report states in paragraph 95, which I have.

Wilfred Collins 3 min 8 sec ago Amazon Amazon Go, the checkout and queue-free grocery store shown off in a glossy promotional video last Christmas, appears to be having some issues getting off the ground. The hype around Amazon Go looks to have been slightly over-indulged if a new report by the Wall Street Journal is to be believed. The report revealed that Amazon’s flagship grocery store in their Seattle hometown can’t handle more than 20 customers at a time. It says the tech behind Amazon Gofreaks out” if an item is moved from a specific spot when more than 20 individuals are in store. A shame for Amazon, I can’t think of anyone that wants to be inside a shop in the midst of a breakdown.

Our users turn to us to define the words they see, hear, and read and in todays highly politicized world, we play a necessary role in helping users dissect the meaning of words heard in this period of political discourse, Liz McMillan, CEO of Dictionary.com, said in a statement. Plenty of the new entries are more playful slang, like slay ( to strongly impress or overwhelm someone), hangry (feeling irritable or irrationally angry as a result of being hungry) and cheat day ( a day in which a person goes off a dietary regimen). The editors also added a note for the new entry 420 (which refers to all kinds of things related to marijuana) that takes a stand on the annually nagging question of where that term comes from. Origin of 420 : First recorded in 1970-75; a code word derived from the meeting time of a particular group of marijuana smokers in 1971, later popularized by fans of the band the Grateful Dead And there is an impressively robust entry for the controversial slang term bitchface , noting that it also goes by the names resting bitchface , bitchy resting face and chronic bitch face .

saying, I am always happy when constituents contact me on a whole range of animal welfare issues. It shows that among the many concerns they articulate, animal welfare matters a great deal to them. Members will receive e-mails and the occasional letter on the same animal related issues as myself. These, badgers, domestic bouts, circus animals, while animals, dogfighting and so on. Whilst it is good to see how much they care, it is obviously disappointing.

Jonathan Bray 3 hours 23 min ago Samsung Price when reviewed 689 So, the Samsung Galaxy S8. You’ve heard of that, right? Of course you have, and you also know what it looks like and what the specifications are, dont you? If not, you probably should do, because this phone is probably the most leaked major smartphone in history. It’s so leaky that Samsung probably should have codenamed it Leaky McLeakface.

Male domestic fowl are less aggressive towards related males than to unrelated males when competing for copulations, according to a new study from Linköping University in Sweden. This finding, which has been published in the scientific journal Behavioral Ecology, suggests that domestic fowl can recognise their kin among individuals in a group, and that their behaviour is different towards kin and non-kin.

Spare parts to repair them are unavailable. Most people with severe health conditions have had to move out of the area. The price of everything has multiplied. In 2015-2016 people had to rely on whatever products, food, healthcare, medicine, and everyday products that were already in the stores.. nothing else was being brought in. The demand was still there but the supply was dwindling and that of course caused severe economic turmoil and inflation. Another issue related to the sanctions is that right now there are no exports from Syria, which in turn made the price of the dollar rise which then had a negative effect on everything else. For instance the price of infant formula had reached 5,000 syp which is about 10x what it was worth before.. some people were stating they are willing to pay 10,000 syp for a few days of formula but even that was difficult to locate in the stores.

Its powertrain combines BMW’s 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol engine with an electric motor , and it’s related to the hybrid system of the i8. However, the front-engined 2 Series uses petrol power for the front wheels while its electric eAxle drives the rears – the i8 is the opposite. Models below the PHEV in the 2 Series Active Tourer range are expected to retain the current line-up of turbocharged three and four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines, which come in 1.5 and 2.0-litre capacities. As such, the entry-level price shouldnt change much - the 2 Series Active Tourer currently costs £23,880 in its most basic 218i SE form.
