    European Organisation for Nuclear Research I’ve been formulating my own personal hypothesis. A renegade team of fundamentalist anti-science spies broke in and used the LHC to rip a hole in time and space. that seems to be the only explanation I can come up with for the current state of the world CERN - Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire CERN has become one of the pre-eminent [Definition: Surpassing all others; very distinguished in some way.] scientific research organisations in the world. As of March 2018 the organisation boasts 22 member states and is located on the border of France and Switzerland in the small municipality of Meyrin. Although located in the Canton of Geneva which is technically in Switzerland the organisation is referred to by its French name. This is because the Canton of Geneva is located within an area of the Swiss Confederation known as the [...]

    Setting up smart sustainable water collection, storage and filtration systems for a smart sustainable home Water is a highly valued commodity despite the fact that our entire planet is covered in it. Changes in global climate are driving changes in the way we manage resources. Modern technology also makes it easier to develop small scale smart home sustainable water systems that rival commercial infrastructure from decades past. There has also been a failure of governments to keep up with changes in a variety of areas. This makes it necessary for us to become smarter about how we manage the resources we need to sustain life. Rain Collection The first most obvious way of obtaining water is from rain and the key is to maximise the collection areas. A house roof is the first easiest place to start with planning for the collection of rain water. Having an angled roof [...]

    Capital gains is betting that the price will go up while cash flow can often be determined before an investment is made. What is the difference between capital gains and cash flow? There are two primary strategies that investors will target for making money! Both are equally valid however one tends to be more reliable than the other. We need to know the differences between them before deciding which is a better option for our needs. Investing for capital gains is making the decision to not make any profit until the asset is sold. This means that an asset is purchased for a lower price and then sold for a higher price. There are advantages to this however it does have some limitations as well. Basing a strategy on cash flow means focusing on the fact that the asset produces a regular income. Determining an assets cash flow is [...]

    The Responsibility of Business in Society In a free market economy and a free society what responsibility does business have in addressing the issues of poverty and inequality? This is a question that has been asked repeatedly over the years, frameworks have been developed, examined, redeveloped and re-examined countless times. There is a litany of material and yet the arguments come down to two basic view points. The stakeholder theory (Post, F., 2003) and the the shareholder theory or ‘Friedman’s Paradigm’ (Coelho, McClure & Spry, 2003). In this essay I will look at the responsibility that business has for addressing the issues of poverty and inequality in society and I will focus on the shareholder view as argued by Friedman. I will examine the argument tabled by Friedman, the context in which it was argued and the strengths and weaknesses of the argument. I will also examine the concept [...]

    Siteground has proven to be a good fit as a web hosting provider for my current needs. Especially as I start to increase my focus on my websites as a business rather than a hobby. We changed our hosting provider in February 2018 and were pleased we did within the first 24 hours. Over the last several years I’ve been teaching myself the ins and outs of web design and development. Operating on a limited budget I’ve been using a lot of open source options. I’m also something of a control freak and like to know how to do things myself.

    There's the light side, there's the dark side and then Rogue One settles somewhere in between. When Disney bought the franchise for $4.1 billion it was expected that they would do something with it. Hell you have to be able to justify that kind of a price tag. In this there lies a certain truth, and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is the first chance to show the scope of that vision. Gareth Edwards vision of a galaxy far far away takes a step away from what is traditionally expected of a Star Wars film. Even JJ Abrams, who did a fantastic job in my humble but very accurate opinion, stuck with a simple very basic formula when he reintroduced us to the primary saga in Episode 7. Rogue One on the other hand has stepped away from many of the archetypes favoured in the original trilogy and [...]

    Three women who were held as slaves for 30 years have been rescued by London Detectives in what has been described as one of the worst cases of slavery in the recent British history. The three women, a 69 year old Malaysian, a 57 year old Irish and a 30 year old Briton were rescued from the nondescript home in South London a few weeks ago. However news of the case only broke this morning as Detectives from Scotland Yard arrested a man and a woman in their 60s on charges of forced labour and domestic servitude. Metropolitan Police were able to locate and negotiate the rescue of the three women who came to the attention of police through the Freedom Charity who received an anonymous phone call from one of the women after the charity was featured in a documentary on forced marriage. “All three women who were [...]
