Who is they? The WHO or the Singapore government?
Oooh, you're talking about UFO's, now you've convinced me!
The WHO, national governments, News establishments. They never or rarely post exactly how many people are cleared of the disease. If they do it is usually only country wide. It makes the disease seem so much more dangerous than it is.
By saying 90,000 Confirm cases, it gives the impression that there are 90,000 people with H1N1, when in reality maybe up to 75% are cleared of it. So why do they never/hardly post it?
Google turned up this plua others:
Thanks, but I'm British
Is this what you are doing? If so it would definitely put you ahead of your peers but you have to bear in mind that you are still young without specific or advanced skills that employers would be willing to pay £££ for. You would be well placed to go into an apprenticeship or to keep going in education.
I'm an officer! It's just that I always get a lot of questions starting with 'sir, I was thinking on joining up, what's the ......... like?' I can help people with everything but pay, since when I was there it was in shillings and pence
What's on second base.
Flying Pig unskilled/ no A level types can basically expect to work for whatever tiny fraction over min wage their employer payes so they can claim not to pay min wage. Call it £250 a week and all the tea they can drink. All the more so now since labouring jobs have been hit by the downturn and that was where an uneducated fit guy could make okish cash.
kind of irrelivant though since there are so few unskilled jobs around ATM and people from better trades fighting over them. In fact your sprogs could do a lot worse than to be taught a trade by the army for the crappy half of the economic cycle - rent and board included - and come free just as things have got going again.
I remember a few years ago, I saw on TV, and perhaps the internet, about this Undersea exploration, and they were at the bottom of the deepest parts of the ocean, and they found a black "pool" of uber-dense material, and they couldn't get in there. Is there an article about it somewhere?
I'm looking for a Marvel comic. It should be about 15 years old, maybe older. I think it was the start of a Captain America series, and it had him fighting a bunch of snake-themed supervillains. The snakes killed or tried to kill Modok. Does anyone know which series that was, and if that snakes storyline was indeed in its first couple of issues?
They are called cold seeps. This will get you started- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cold_seep
Something like this? http://www.marvunapp.com/Appendix4/serpent_men_slither.htm
Conan the Barbarian had some cool snake-men fores in Stygia, but I don't think it's this.
No, but thanks. I think I found it with Wikipedia ... the snake folks are Serpent Society, and apparently the storyline is from 1985.
That's what the link says too. It gives issue synopses so might be what you want anyway.
How do I use known coordinates of a location to find it in Google Earth?
A small and modest question that is bothering me, so excuse me
I catch a train/bus and its packed, theres one avaliable seat and i take it. After one or two stops a full two seater becomes avaliable. Is it polite to go and sit that seat or remain where you are?
Call me wierd, but its been bugging me... or maybe its just me
If no one is standing, I'd take it.
If someone was standing/If there was a couple or a mother with child nearby and they were seperated I'd let them have it, otherwise yeah, get that other seat.
Separate names with a comma.
