Lewis Hamilton and George Russell are set to benefit from an FIA rule which will give Mercedes more wind tunnel testing time for their W13. The Silver Arrows are set to be afforded more time for aerodynamic testing in the second half of the season, given their performance so far this year. Wind tunnel time is currently capped under FIA regulations, with each team given an allocation based on results. As the 2021 constructors' champions, Mercedes saw their aero testing time most restricted for the first half of the current season. But they have now been knocked off their perch, and are third in the pecking order behind Red Bull and Ferrari after the first nine races. Mercedes have also dropped two places in the ATR handicap system which is used to determine the allocation of wind tunnel time. It means the Brackley-based team will now be allowed 80% of the total time compared to other teams, having had to settle for 70% previously. As they have moved one position up … [Read more...] about FIA rule set to give Lewis Hamilton boost as Mercedes to get more testing time for W13

by BRIG. GEN. WILLIAM C. MENNINGER, USA MILITARY psychiatry differs from civilian psychiatry in that the Army must be totally responsible for a man — not only for his food and clothing, but especially for his ability to participate in his particular mission. Consequently, when a man did not fulfill his function, the Army had to find the cause and, if possible, remedy it. In many instances the cause lay in his personality and in his emotional difficulties. Since there is a human tendency to retreat into illness under stress, it was not surprising to find that many men became ill when they were unable to meet the demands of the new life. Military psychiatry differs also in quality from civilian psychiatry. In the Army much more effort and time are invested in a preventive psychiatryan attempt to keep men healthy and to seek out causes for poor morale. Until comparatively recently, the majority of civilian psychiatric patients had to be brought to the psychiatrist by relatives, … [Read more...] about Psychiatry and the War

The BBC's Geeta Pandey reports from the town of Hajipur, in Bihar, on a disease that kills two Indians every three minutes. Kishori Rai, 42, looks emaciated and his entire body shakes when he coughs. He stands in a corner of the dark and dingy hospital room, shifting uneasily from one foot to another, his mouth covered with a white handkerchief which has turned muddy with grime and blood. When he walked into the District Tuberculosis Centre in Hajipur in Vaishali district, he seemed uncertain that the doctors here would be able to help him. He tells Dr Ramji Singh that he was first diagnosed with tuberculosis … [Read more...] about Misdiagnosis behind Bihar’s deadly TB epidemic
The British opposition leader Sir Keir Starmer has said there is no going back on Brexit, in a speech on Monday night. Instead, he offered a new slogan as part of a drive to ensure Britain thrives: "Make Brexit Work". "There are some who say 'we don’t need to make Brexit work — we need to reverse it'," the Labour leader told the Centre for European Reform (CER) . "I couldn’t disagree more." "Let me be very clear. Under Labour, Britain will not go back into the EU. We will not be joining the single market. We will not be joining a customs union." It represents a major policy shift for Starmer — who in the run-up to Brexit called for a deal to be put to a second referendum, and lauded the benefits of the free movement of workers, now consigned to the past. It also further distances the country's current direction from the fiery debates and deadlock in the aftermath of the 2016 referendum, with the two largest parties firmly wedded to the UK's departure from the … [Read more...] about Brexit damage: Is EU exit now hitting UK’s economy harder than COVID?

Faisal Islam @faisalislam on Twitter Published 4 days ago Share close Share page Copy link About sharing Up until now it has been difficult to pick out much difference between the UK's economic numbers and those across Europe and the world. The size of the common global economic shocks from the pandemic and from Russia's invasion of Ukraine has been the overwhelming driver of high inflation and slower growth for most European countries. But in recent days, the Bank of England governor, Andrew Bailey, has warned inflation is set to be higher for longer here in the UK, and growth in the economy weaker too. These gloomy forecasts echoed those made by the International Monetary Fund and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, which has 38 member countries. On Wednesday, Mr Bailey told a European Central Bank forum that "the UK economy is probably … [Read more...] about Why is the UK economy suffering more than other countries?
