Are you brainless?

Let me type it slowly so you can follow.

The air pollution law is an EU law, an attempt to protect people.
The UK is going to pull out of the EU, removing the EU's protection from people in the UK. The process is called 'Brexit'.

Got it? Not hard is it?

if you are looking for a causative link, rather than a coorelation I believe it's "UK doesn't want to deal with EU laws; ergo brexit AND blowing past limits set by EU law" they are both results with a cause in common.

I can't dispute with people who deny the meaning of their own words, so I'm out of this particular tiff.

At no point did I ever claim "voting leave causes air pollution" which appears to be what you think I said.

Look guys, Brexit means Brexit. Attempting to tag things like causes, symptoms and consequences, let alone any deeper, shallower or otherwise hidden meanings to the word just sullies it purity.

Brexit means Brexit. And nothing else.

OK?

So, umm. That was kinda awkward.

Anyways, Amazon has had to apologize and remove a doormat resembling the Indian national flag from its Canadian website after the government of India officially protested and threatened to never grant an entry visa to any employee or officer of Amazon ever again forever unless it was removed.

RUSSIA TODAY HIJACKS C-SPAN!

An "internal issue" a short time ago hilariously replaced C-SPAN's feed of a Congressional hearing with the Russian state media channel's broadcast for around ten minutes, in what might just be one of the most prescient unintentional commentaries on the imminent new epoch of American government that I've seen yet.

In formal terms, a particle is considered to be an eigenstate of the particle number operator a†a, where a is the particle annihilation operator and a† the particle creation operator (sometimes collectively called ladder operators). In many cases, the particle number operator does not commute with the Hamiltonian for the system. This implies the number of particles in an area of space is not a well-defined quantity but, like other quantum observables, is represented by a probability distribution. Since these particles do not have a permanent existence,[clarification needed] they are called virtual particles or vacuum fluctuations of vacuum energy. In a certain sense, they can be understood to be a manifestation of the time-energy uncertainty principle in a vacuum.[

Oh - not so unique, then.

For the record, I have nothing against fry-ups. Some of my favourite breakfasts have been fry-ups. But… the Full Monty British breakfast beats any other fry-up any day of the week. And it works perfectly well in a vacuum too.

Woman arrested after estranged husband discovers their son had been locked in her bathroom for as many as two years

Quote:
Authorities say Brandy James locked her son, now 12, in an upstairs bathroom in her Toquerville, Utah, home for perhaps as long as two years.

When they found him, the boy was so severely malnourished, he weighed just 30 pounds.

The conditions inside, as laid out in an indictment, are truly upsetting : The toilet bowl was so full of feces that there didn't appear to be any water inside. The door was locked from the outside. The light switches were duct taped in the off position, so the boy probably sat in darkness all the time. The boy so weak when he was found that he wouldn't have been able to stand up and take the duct tape off on his own.

Empty bean cans and a spoon were found in the shower, where the drain was covered with duct tape.

"I've seen the pictures. They're horrific," Washington County Sheriff's Lt. David Crouse told CNN affiliate KSL. "I've seen other horrible things, but this is one of those things I'll never forget. I wish I could unsee it."

Crouse said a video camera was set up so the mother could monitor the boy on her cellphone, and a baby monitor was set up so she could give him instructions but he could not reply.
That is some seriously dark stuff. I don't know if a kid that old will ever be able to fully recover, either physically or mentally, after something like that. I hope so.

At 30 lbs it is surprising he is alive. 90 lbs is average for a 12 year old.
