Gail BentzingerI don’t think he was beaten senseless and tortured. There would be external signs and nothing showed externally, nor on the x-rays and MRI discs the N. Koreans sent. Certainly the discs could be of someone else, but there were no broken bones. I believe he tried to kill himself and it’s easier for the family to blame the N. Koreans than to admit their kid tried suicide. I don’t know what their religion is. N. Korea kills it’s own citizens with no problem but foreigners are another story. No one likes N. Korea. So it’s easy to say oh, they beat my son to a pulp and caused his coma. I don’t think this time they’re at fault for this kid’s illness.15 minutes ago

This is an unsafe feature for everyone and it is unnecessary. If you’re thoughts are for the "good people" to do a "better job," you’re on the side of every person who would abuse this feature!

Hell, Snapchat itself even gives you the option to disable location sharing outright ("Ghost Mode") or control who sees it (your friends are STILL the only people who can see it, your child shouldn’t have people they don’t know on it anyway) the first time you open the map after the update.
You can even go one step further and completely deny Snapchat access to your location data from the firmware menu.4 · 3 hours ago

Why is it being called an evacuation and not temporary rehousing or whatever? Is evacuation not a word that invokes fear and panic?
Do they predict that any or all of these towers will spontaneously combust? I am assuming here but surely most folk in flats are pretty fire aware now and many may have planned escapes and got extinguishers so maybe just community meetings to discuss fire plans and precautions to take, kit to buy ( even provided) and fire wardens in the interim.
How long do they actually think it will take to complete works on each building?

Martin MalinskiExpect more of this. It is complex; the likelyhood is that the Council have been made aware that a ‘liability’ is with them if there is a repeat of Grenfell tower. Speculating: The liability could be that no ‘proper’ authority was ever given for the design of the retrofit cladding systems. Normally an architect will specify the materials, design and installation…. but Architects are often not specialists in cladding, so their input is advisory. They would request that the council comission a peer reveiw of the materials, design and installation.(integrity of each is seperate but also dependant on each) The peer review would give a specialists recomendation….The issue could be that no peer review was comissioned (cost) or review recomendations were ignored …So by what authority was the retrofit undertaken? If no specialist advice was sought; (as could easily be the case).. it would leave the council wide open to law suits and liability claims… Combinations of materials can compromise their individual safety rating…. as can installation methods…..et al.2 · 4 hours ago

I remember my mother, when gay marriage was legalized here in Nova Scotia and she didn’t think it was right for gay people to marry or adopt children and I laughed and laughed.

Mark TaggartThose who hold to the Christian faith are entitled to disagree with homosexuals. Christians are not homophobic and should never abuse or assault anyone. We are called to love our neighbours. That does not mean we must agree with them on everything. We can love someone and still disagree with their opinions and choices. Christians simply do not accept that homosexual behaviour is moral. They are not monsters or homophobic for believing this. Why can’t the BBC get over it?91 · 6 hours ago

Being the second most vindictive set of journalists in the world, they feel that they can rial against those who dared to criticise them. What an absolute disgrace the BBC news has become. Maybe they should be reminded that they are just general employees rather than elected officials (and they aren’t much better) and that maybe a written warning or dismissal or two might remind them that they actually live in the country that they are so eager to belittle in the cause of notoriety within the BBC news club.18 · 7 hours ago

I work for a software company that provides mobile inspection applications and web-based fire and life safety compliance inspection reporting and this is a well-known issue for decades.
The cladding is banned because of a long history of fire incidents around the world, and it is an immediate threat to the residents who live there. Learn the lessons from the mistakes already made such as Grenfell. Don’t ignore them and end up with more deaths as a result.

We were both of the opinion that anyone found to knowingly sanctioned the fitting of the external cladding should be facing jail.
I mentioned that at least a public enquiry has been announced by the government. My son replied "and why do you think the government were so quick to announce that? It should have been an inquest".
I said I thought they were the same thing.
"No" my son said. "A public enquiry, the government select who will chair it and it’s eventual findings may never be implemented. An inquest is run by a judge and he can call anyone for evidence and use the law to demand answers. Think Hillborough".

Tami GrossetQuite apart from the disgusting racism she is demonstrating by insisting on a white doctor, she mentions in one part that her child is ‘half brown’. This makes the whole thing so much worse; that her bi racial child is absorbing her racism, listening to how, in her eyes, only white people are ‘worthy’ so therefore the child must not be worthy.

Tina StojkoDisgusting. For many years I’ve worked with and been in contact with a student that was an asylum seeker as a head of sixth form. She had a tough road through exams. Very bright but working to get her English up to scratch. That young lady was o e of my hardest working students every. Is now at uni and has won bursaries after coming top of her year. She was so grateful for her education. The help she had. I’ve never seen the same from our students. She comes back regularly to let us know how she is getting on and always wants to thank us.

Mercedes Lynne GalassoI’m sorry. But this isn’t a heartwarming story at all. It’s a story about a man who couldn’t follow a dress code and wear actual shoes when taking his wife out to dinner, so he had to borrow shoes from someone who has less then he does and left the homeless man wearing sandals, they didn’t even bring him food it sounds like afterwards. A heartwarming story would have been him wearing proper shoes in the first place and then giving them to the homeless man.23 · 6 hours ago

Mike McGillThe video doesn’t show the whole incident. According to the eyewitness who shot the video the car cut off the rider (those quadruple solid yellow lines are never allowed to be crossed as they are meant to protect those driving faster than the rest of traffic in the HOV lane, which motorcycles are allowed to use), words were exchanged, and as you can see at the beginning of the video the car driver hits the brakes, trying to get the rider to crash into the back of him. The rider dodges and kicks the car in anger, then the driver attempts to murder him by driving him into the wall.544 · 9 hours ago

Sadia NaeemThe video doesn’t show what happened before the biker kicked the car. I highly doubt someone would go out of their way to do that if they weren’t provoked in some way initially. But they’re both at fault anyway, knowing that any action on the road could cause an accident.23 · 9 hours ago
Brian WoodBBC News (and other news sources), please be sure to tell the whole story. According to witnesses, prior to the start of the video the car cut-off the biker and the two apparently "exchanged words." The passenger in another car then decided to start shooting the video and catches the final moments of the car crossing the double yellow back into the carpool lane, right next to the motorcyclist. That’s when the biker kicks the car (bad idea) and the car driver decides to swerve hard and hit the bike (attempted murder, as far as I’m concerned), and the rest unfolds as you see in the video. The biker did not initiate this, and the car drivers attempt to knock him down is egregious, at best.
Yes, the motorcyclist should have stopped, but then… someone did just try to kill him.18 · 9 hours ago
Rene SoullierApparently the car driver crossed the HOV lines and cut off the biker (According to the person who captured the video). The biker retaliated by speeding up alongside the car kicking it. The vehicle, subsequently, swerved into him (either intentionally or due to panicking. It’s not unheard of for people to get shot due to road rage, and the car driver might have been fearing for their life). We can only speculate until details emerge.
The only one facing criminal charges, as I see it, is the motorcycle rider for leaving the scene of an accident he inevitably caused.

David KyteAll you people bashing the motorcyclist. The car could have killed him to begin with. Sure, he was a bit of a dick, but honestly, if the choice is between an "oh I didn’t see them when I changed lanes" type of driver killing the motorcyclist and that, I’d rather be alive. it should be obvious the driver of that car wasn’t exactly driving with their hands clean, either. Try to be vindictive, overcorrect, and that’s what you cause. Having said all of that, after having visited California, those highways are a major reason I didn’t enjoy it there.5 · 9 hours ago
