Using a combination of cutting-edge satellite observation, computer analysis and input from the public on the ground, Living Wales captures incredible details and information from the Welsh landscape and represents it though fascinating interactive displays.Acting as the public-facing showcase for the project, the exhibition allows visitors to see how satellite imagery has revealed the scale of climate change over the last 30 years and to explore how technology can help us manage solutions in the future.

The Fed hasn't cut its benchmark rate in more than a decade, and it isn't likely to do so today.But it very well may signal that its next policy move could be to lower rates in the near future.Complicating its already tough decision is the possibility the U.S.-China trade war may soon ease -- or worsen.So investors hoping for clarity about Fed policy for the coming months are likely to be disappointed.Washington - The Federal Reserve seems poised to pivot from keeping interest rates steady to holding out the option of cutting rates if it were to decide that the economic expansion needs support. The Fed isn't considered ready to announce its first rate cut in more than a decade. But when it ends its latest policy meeting Wednesday, the central bank is expected to signal an inclination to ease credit sometime within the next several months. What it won't likely do is indicate when that might happen.

0 Have your say One of the highlights of my life is supporting Peterborough United through thick and thin, through times happy and grim, writes Toby Wood, from the Peterborough Civic Society. Posh is like an old jumper – warm, familiar and sometimes full of holes, the sort of jumper that your wife sometimes says to you, “why don’t you just give up and throw it away?” Thankfully my wife Irene and I share a common love for Posh and we have season tickets on the back row of the top tier of the family stand. In fact this is the highest place you can sit in the stadium and therefore possibly the most elevated in Peterborough (until Posh get a new ground that is!). From our seats we can see across towards the hospital to the west and the fens out towards Whittlesey to the east. To the north we have been able to catch glimpses of the top of the Cathedral but, sadly, these are now disappearing due to the Fletton Quays development.Nearly twenty … [Read more...] about A Peterborough city view worth preserving
Grimsby is back on the map thanks to the Google Street View car. With all the changes taking place in the town, Google have done a refresh of their street map using their hi-tech camera on top of a car. It is going around North East Lincolnshire mapping all the streets and providing a service to customers of Google Street View. The internet giant updates its maps roughly every four years. The new view will include the transformation on Freeman Street and Albion Street on the town's East Marsh since the high rise tower blocks were removed. On one of the last occasions the driver of the streeview car complained about the abuse he received from some of the passersby. But today the driver, who only wished to be known as John, was pleased with his mission. Bad weather had curbed the time he had available for filming. "We can't operate in the rain," John told Grimsby Live. He added: "Grimsby has been fine. I have a bit more to do in Hull and I have done about a third of Grimsby so far. Then … [Read more...] about Wave! The Google Street View car is in Grimsby!
