Like California ?
I assumed the owners, being a family descended from such a noble patriot, would willingly pay the income tax - that's what aristocrats do isn't it ?
Noblesse oblige and all that
But surely the seller will be paying income tax on this so the country will get back half of the money ?
Except the hospital was still treating as many people as physically possible. It was just cooking the books to avoid cuts due to not meeting political targets,
This is like leaving people who need emergency surgery waiting ,while while you perform unnecessary easy surgeries to make money
But there is a slightly higher diplomatic threshold for deliberately jamming or shooting down Eu satelites than there is for simply degrading GPS accuracy over europe to the point that road/rail/air transport is made a lot slower and more expensive as a resposnse to a trade arguement
In the case of Blair possibly the same man, as soon as the check clears
Good job it won't apply to Microsoft-UK
You were searching for Iceland Air - this is a terrorist group under the governments "we need a way to grab money from people without a trial act".
You are being redirected to the anti-terrorist Ulster Volunteer Force site.
They can simply fly everyone in the department off to a holiday camp on a nice little island and ask them what was in it.
I hear they have some revolutionary new tricks for getting people to remember things
Nothing wrong with talking to plants.
No sillier than talking to clouds.
Now when you start making laws based on what you think someone in the clouds wants - then you have problems
>Really? By what god like powers are they planning on subverting foreign jurisdictions and the ability of the internet to route around censorship?
A strongly worded letter to each Nigerian prince ?
Had an American rental car that very politely read out abbreviations in full.
Unfortunately it though that "St" was an abbreviation for Saint and "Dr" was doctor
So we turned into "Martin Luther King Doctor" and drove down several "Main Saints"
Where politically expedient make a U-Turn
U-turn if you want to
So there is a small difference in the mean of a broad distribution of two populations.
At an age where girls have physically/mentally matured ahead of boys and when there is a group pressure for the boys not to be swots.
It says nothing about what you expect the gender of future 1 in a million Nobel prize winners to be or what you expect the mix of top 1% of 21 year olds graduating in Maths/Physics from top schools or how many should have founded $Bn silicon valley companies
Still - convenient to have a 10year stretch hanging over just about anybody in the country isn't it?
Want to do a raid on that well known felon Mr Winston Kadogo?
That would only be justified for a major crime, such as one that carried a 10year sentence - such as having kept a copy of a BBC iPlayer programme more than 30days, or having copied a CD to his MP3 player.
Fortunately such laws would only be used against major criminals, or terrorists.
Perhaps this could be extended to recordings of interviews
The tape can be started and stopped "at their discretion"
Chinese bank with HQ in Hong Kong reduces staff in small island off Europe !
Getting rid of off-shore staff a great boost for local economy says HK manager
Bad ones just plant ivy
Because the employers expect to hire a new grad for about the same wage as the window cleaner, drop them in a production system have them producing code on day one.
The same way that Rolls Royce hires mech eng graduates and has them building jet engines as soon as they get their overall.
If computer science is going to be one (hint - if the subject has the word science, it isn't one) then it needs to cover fundamentals rather than making sure that 2016's graduates have 3years experience of Visual Studio 2019.
The reason we hire other STEM grads is that, for the most part, CS grads are the least capable (ie thick) students who took CS because they had a computer at home and they thought it would get them a job.
But if Britain leaves Europe it will have to join America and so will be forced to use 110v.
obligatory Welsh joke about keeping the sheep in ?
Except the genius pedo-terrorist probably doesn't have any assets. So she will sue the school district for not having prominent enough signage and they will pay, and cut the school budget to make up the shortfall.
I genuinely didn't know that.
el'reg - come for the barely recycled press releases of enterprise storage manufacturers - stay for the pedantic etymology
>More Americans have been killed by toddlers in 2016 than by terrorists
That's why you need to carry a gun at home - the toddlers are clever and they are organised.
But suppose you were in a situation where you were naked except for your socks and had to deal with an intruder/terrorist/grizzly bear? You wouldn't have time to cycle an empty chamber.
Surely worth it for the joy of Mr Cage being burnt in a giant wicker man ( spoiler?) ?
No need for parody. They didn't use any of the original footage, they just made models in the same style. Trumpton don't own that style of puppet or stop motion animation
Now that Twitter is being guarded by those chaps at GCHQ there are no more terrorists on twitter so the Daily Mail can stop worrying about it.
At least it works with pen and paper.
If the GDS Shoreditch wonders get hold of it - you will be required to use special pastel hued crayons, only available from a specific artisan crayon dribbler.
"If you're with a bank worth their salt, you'll get a phonecall to verify any suspicious looking transactions."
There is a distinct NaCl deficiency with banks over here.
Found a dozen $1000-$2000 flights in europe on my credit card and phoned the bank to alert them.
So the $10,000 flights to South Africa and Australia weren't yours either?
What $10K flight ??????
Oh sorry, we spotted those as fraudulent and removed them.
So you cancelled a bunch of $5k and $10k fraudulent transactions, but decided that all the ones for $1K and $2k at the same time were legitimate?
Yes, because they were under the fraud limit.
What's the fraud limit amount - just out of interest?
Oh, we ca't tel you that - for security !
Which is why we need to strike first.
Cops of America, Nuke America, to Save America
>The system much prefers to describe it as a justifiable homicide.
Or if the victim is black - theft of police bullets
Step 1: Get the security council to agree on who is a terrorist.
Step 2: Get a unanimous vote from all the other members
Step 3: Make a plan
Dell's business website (used?) to let you do this.
It offered you the option of paying over 'n' credit cards or accounts keeping under the approval limit on each
It's certainly a welcoming approach.
Mr US corporation, put your HQ in Ireland and you can slurp data from anywhere in Europe.
Regulators? We have Mrs Muggins who does Wednesday afternoons.
Still not as profitable as London's financial services industry held in check by the iron grip of the SFO.
I always hear "developers, developers, developers" as a pitiful cry, rather like Peter Sellers doing "a horse, a horse" as Richard III
Nope, it is totally pointless and always has been (unlike the earliest transits of Venus)
But since no Kardasian is doing anything today it's news, and it allows lots of agencies to fulfill a public understanding of science mandate without any actual science being understood.
Royal Enfield: doing motorcycles since God was too young to ride
Honda: make a silly little moped thing for Japanese peasants
How did that work out ?
Well we can be pretty sure it won't have any wheels
"our" marine environment? I thought it was going to Antarctica?
Perhaps we should seize the south pole for the empire - it would be nice to have a 2nd former colony that doesn't beat us at cricket.
It would have been braver to say - "the winner proves that the British public don't give a BEEP about science and so we are cancelling the ship"
Nasa couldn't fake a water landing - that's a totally different government agency with a different union
The border was pretty permeable to Armalites and semtex so it is likely to stay open for people doing a bit of shopping or buying cheap petrol.
It doesn't mean that Google/MSFT/Amazon etc can treat it as an open border for tax reasons
So the idea is that the UK would leave the Eu to get more control over business and taxation - but continue to allow US companies to pretend to be in Ireland and pay no tax?
Just out of a sense of nostalgia for the UK-Eire "special" relationship ?
Yep - can see that happening.
