It would seem a no confidence motion is almost certain given what has just come out of the cabinet.
May has told them she will push ahead with her deal regardless of the scale of the defeat and will refuse to rule out a no deal. Labour will have no choice but to call the no confidence vote or they will be seen as complicit (although in many eyes they already are). Hard to see what it solves though, Labour can’t win it.
Predictions all over the place at the moment but looks like she will lose by something between 100 and 230 votes.
To take a set off the world number 22 who just beat Djokovic and won his last tournament whilst barely being able to run is really quite something. Shows the real gap the top 4 had over the others when fit.
Even if (likely when) he loses this set that’s still something pretty impressive.
From the source article, don't know the survey size but it's depressing whatever it is:
1. More than half of U.S. parents with children under age 18 said they believe their child can get flu from the flu shot. One-third of parents said they believe the shot does not protect someone from the flu.
2. About 30 percent of parents said they thought the flu shot is a conspiracy, while 28 percent said they believe it causes autism.
Pretty interesting stuff. Certainly has some advantages such as less pollution and more cargo per ship. It should also be easier to code the navigation as there are less obstacles and more space on the oceans.
It won't be replacing the existing crewed ships for quite some time though.
This is some great work by NASA, they didn't know where they would go after Pluto but the discovery of this object on the rough path that New Horizons was taking means that it's the furthest object from the Sun ever visited.
So the other month there was a debate on here about people not getting their kids vaccinated for chicken pox in the US. It was fairly vigorous but in the end many said “it’s just chicken pox, no need to be so worried”.
I don’t think the same argument can be made now. It’s inexcusable that people are dying of measles when it can be prevented. Making a decision not to vaccinate doesn’t just affect you and your family, it affects the herd immunity of the general populace.
Nice that Korolev has a crater named after him, a true genius of rocket development known only as the Chief Designer whilst he was alive so the US couldn’t assassinate him (not that they would). He designed the rocket that put Sputnik in orbit and upon his death his remains were placed in the Kremlin walls and his name revealed along with a full state funeral. The most ridiculous thing is that he died due to issues he got whilst he was in the gulag, somewhere he was sent in 1938 for no real reason. If that hadn’t have happened the USSR would likely have stayed ahead of the US in the space race.
