Intriguing repositioning by the People’s Vote campaign for another Brexit referendum with Chuka Umunna nudged aside as a prominent frontman. My snout born with a circle of 12 yellow stars on his heart whispered the Streatham Europhile’s branding of his own party as racist and his hostility to Jeremy Corbyn is considered an obstacle to persuading sceptical Labour MPs to join the crusade. Former EU commissioner Peter Mandelson must be smarting. The Prince of Darkness launched an attempted coup early this summer to install his protégé Umunna as chair of the group. It failed. Spreadsheet Phil’s charmless offensive is likened to a smile from Dracula by Conservative MPs unnerved by the Chancellor’s sudden interest in what they think about the nation’s finances. The hitherto neglected suspect it owes as much to leadership ambitions as surviving what may be a grim tax-raising Budget this month. The Treasury bean counter’s mocking of Boris … [Read more...] about ConsumerBusinessSpotlightConsumerBusinessSpotlightConsumerBusinessSpotlightConsumerBusinessSpotlightConsumerBusinessSpotlight Commons Confidential: Philip Hammond’s pH imbalance
0 Post a comment Wednesday, 8 August 2018 - Other News by Cambrian News reporter @CambrianNews [email protected] A SHEEP stuck in a bog has been rescued by the RSPCA. The ewe - aged around four years - was found in a bog hole in Pantmawr, near Llanidloes, and had her legs and body completed submerged by the mud. RSPCA inspector Phil Lewis said: “This poor sheep was completely covered by the bog and was unable to move. We’re not sure how long she had been there, but it may have been a day or two. She must have fallen down - she may have been looking for water.”Luckily, Inspector Lewis, along with the caller who alerted the RSPCA, were able to pull the sheep out of the bog safely.He said: “We had to lie down and with our arms under the bog, we managed to release the suction of the mud and scoop the sheep out above the bog hole. “It was quite a challenge with a lot of pushing a pulling and it did take a couple of hours and I would … [Read more...] about Ph-ewe!

The pH scale is taught to pupils in chemistry labs around the world, but its creator remains a little-known scientist despite his ground-breaking achievement. Danish chemist SPL Sorensen invented the scale which measures acidity and alkalinity. His work is being celebrated today with an interactive Google Doodle. Mr Sorensen was born in Havrebjerg, Denmark on January 9, 1868 and was head of the renowned Carlsberg Laboratory in Copenhagen from 1901 to 1938. He introduced the concept of pH at the laboratory in 1909 and his scale is important in fields including chemistry, medicine and water treatment. The lab was started by the founder of the Carlsberg brewery in 1875 a bid to advance biochemical knowledge related to brewing. Mr Sorensen's second wife Margrethe Hoyrup Sorensen, a fellow scientist, helped him with his studies at the lab. In 1917, they became the first people to crystallise egg whites during an experiment at the lab. Mr Sorensen initially set out to have a career in … [Read more...] about Google Doodle celebrates chemist who invented pH scale

However, there is little chance that a US strike on Syria will be used as an admonition or a cue at the upcoming US-North Korea negotiations. Also, Trump is seriously committed … [Read more...] about US-N Korea Summit: Return to Logic of Force Seems to Be Impossible – Ph.D.
