'Time Is Very Short' Warns EU Negotiator on Brexit

2018-06-29    0 views
The chief Brexit negotiator for the EU on Friday said that “huge and serious differences” need to be resolved to avoid Britain crashing out of the trading bloc without a bespoke deal.

Chief negotiator Michel Barnier urged British Prime Minister to produce “workable proposals”, emphasising the lack of time before negotiations need to be wrapped up. 

Hounded by divisions within her own cabinet over which path Brexit should take, May has struggled to provide details of her visions for Brexit to the EU negotiators.

She said on June 29 that a white paper would outline the details of her vision.

Speaking at the end of an EU leadership summit, during which Brexit was put on the back-burner as leaders thrashed out an immigration stategy, Barnier said that time was short to create a deal between the EU and the UK.

Poco, a two-month-old baby tamandua that was born on Easter Monday, recently made her public debut in London Zoo.

Last October, a tamandua male named Tobi moved to London Zoo to join female Ria. Poco arrived five months later on Easter Monday.

“We were confident Ria was pregnant as she’d just started to put on some weight, but we weren’t expecting to welcome a new member of the family quite so soon" said zoo spokesman Steve Goodwin. "They must have got together pretty much on their very first date – Tobi clearly pulled out all the stops!”

The video was posted on the official page for Zoological Society of London, otherwise known as London Zoo. We’ve worked with London Zoo in the past. Clearance for the video was provided in a press release to Storyful.

Indonesia’s Merapi volcano erupted at 8:20 am on Friday, June 1, for about two minutes, the National Disaster Management Authority (BNPB) said.

Merapi, one of the country’s most active volcanoes, spewed a 19,600-foot (6,000 metres) column of volcanic ash to the sky during its two-minute eruption, the BNPB spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said on Twitter.

Shortly after, volcanic ash was reported falling on villages on the slopes of the volcano. The Research and Technological Development for Geological Disaster Agency (BPPTKG), which monitors Mount Merapi, warned that volcanic ash may affect areas northwest of the volcano.

Merapi, which is located on the densely populated Indonesian island of Java, has erupted several times since May 11.

The authorities raised the status level to alert at 11 pm on May 21. An exclusion zone of 1.9 mile radius from Merapi’s peak remains in place.

This baby monkey had to be rescued after getting its head stuck in a small metal pot - for two days.

The inquisitive animal got the small metal drinking pot wedged on its head at a temple in Digras, in the Maharashtra state of west India.

When it was still in place two days later, locals decided to step in and help.

However, the mother was protectively holding the animal and would not let anyone get near her baby.

Officials were forced to temporarily tranquilise the mother with a dart before quickly removing the pot from the infant.

Local resident Pankaj Jain, 62, said: “We thought the monkeys would find a way to free the baby, but when that did not happen for two days, we called the forest officials.”

“I heard it was kinda injured and it was hiding.

“A few police cars tried to block the entrances and these other people was tracking the deer.

Football match abandoned after bizarre pitch invasion

A football match had to be abandoned when a 'tsunami' of COWS invaded the pitch.

Thrive Physiotherapy FC were squaring off against Centrals in the final match of the season, and Thrive had the advantage at 2-1.

As the teams entered the second half the play was halted when players heard a loud noise at the corner of the pitch.

All of a sudden, a massive herd of 180 cows broke through a wooden fence and ruined the game.

Both teams, from Guernsey, were shocked by the pitch invasion and some players ran off in fear.

Other players, including Nick Leigh-Morgan, 44, were able to hold onto their nerve, and quickly grabbed the corner flags and began rounding up the cows.

Nick, a company director from St Martin's who plays for Thrive, said: "There was a commotion and noise from the corner of the pitch.

"I looked at it and I saw what I would describe as a tsunami of cows coming towards us.

"They broke through the fence and charged onto the pitch.

"There was 180 apparently, they were quite large and some players scarpered quickly.

"A few of us decided we had to get them off the pitch and picked up corner flags and shepherded them off."

Thanks to the quick thinking of Nick and the other players the pitch was quickly clear of cows, but not in a good condition.

He continued: "There were deposits all over the pitch, everyone found it very amusing.

"We all agreed it was ridiculous to carry on and shook hands and called it a draw, before heading to the pub.

"I've played football for 30 years and seen some strange things on the pitch but I've never seen any thing like that."

School puts surfing on curriculum after head makes amazing discovery
simon.veazey@epochtimes.nyc
2018-05-21    2 views
A school in a stunning seaside resort has put SURFING on the curriculum - after discovering some pupils had never been to its beach.

The unusual classes have been introduced at Goonhavern Primary School in Perranporth, Cornwall.

Perranporth is a few miles south of Newquay and has a three-mile long golden beach overlooking the Atlantic.

But headteacher Mark Lloyd said he found it ''utterly unbelievable'' after he discovered some of his own pupils had never been taken there by their parents.

They have now started lessons on the sands including surfing, beach cleaning and ocean safety.

Mr Lloyd said: "I find it utterly unbelievable that some parents who live some close to the sea have never taken their children to the beach.

"We've made it our responsibility to take these children to the beach.We've only done it twice so far, but seeing the change in some children is amazing.

“They show fantastic resilience and it has truly helped improve their self confidence.”

Surf enthusiast Mark Thorn, who’s five-year-old daughter Nancy is a pupil at the school, loaned wet suits and equipment to pupils for the classes.

Pupils aged four to 11 years old will have the opportunity to have ten weeks of lessons, which are a day long.

The school has now secured £18,000 in pupil premiums from central government to help ensure surf lessons for pupils become part of the curriculum year-on-year.

Year 4 teacher Lydia Davis said: "I've definitely seen the children's confidence grow.
Some have been scared at first but have loved it once they got on the boards.

"It has given them such a confidence boost. The children are doing things out of their comfort zone.

“I see the difference in their behaviour between being here on the beach and when they are in the classroom."

Despite being only two miles from the sea, some pupils had never been to the beach.

Businessman Mr Thorn said: "If you live in Milton Keynes it's probably OK not to know anything about the sea and the beach, but if you live here it seems criminal not to.

"If you visit the beach on a Wednesday evening at 6pm and you come back the following Wednesday at the same time, the beach will be different because of the tides.

“There might be rock pools or there might be big waves.

“It's about helping children question things around them such as how the tides work, or what animals live in rock pools.”

Children will see for themselves the impact plastic pollution has on the oceans by taking part in a litter pick run by Plastic Free Perranporth Surfers Against Sewage.

Michelle Sanwell, from the Perranporth Surf Life Saving Club, said: "It's not about regurgitating lessons to them. It's about making it fun through play.

"We want them to have a better understanding of their environment and where they live.

“Plastic is an issue. Winds and tides are important. It's about understand the wildlife too."

Scientists have recorded what they say is the first reported case of infanticide among a killer whale population, near Vancouver Island in Canada.

This footage was captured by cetacean ecologist Jared Towers on December 2, 2016. It was the first time the scientists had witnessed an orca whale drown the young of its own species, CBC news reported.

The scientists published a research paper relating to their discovery in the science journal Nature on March 20, 2018. There, they suggested “infanticide is a sexually selected behavior in killer whales that could provide subsequent mating opportunities for the infanticidal male.”

This is the bizarre moment a woman was out shopping on a busy street when she was charged by a passing BULL.

She was tossed at least ten foot through the air by the huge animal which quietly wandered up behind her - before attempting to gorge her with its sharp horns.

Incredible footage shows the animal barge past motorbikes and scooters to charge at the woman who can be seen wearing a yellow sari, about to cross the busy road.

Onlookers ran to her rescue while the animal calmly wandered away, in Bharuch town of Gujarat, India, at around 11am yesterday (Tues).

One local said: "The animal appeared calm at first as it crossed the road and passed unnoticed between traffic.

"The bull then set its sights on the woman and hurled her off the ground with devastating force.

"She lands flush against the concrete, narrowly missing several parked motorbikes.

"The bad-tempered bull then flicked its tail and walked away like nothing happened."

The unnamed victim is being treated in hospital but her condition is not thought to be life-threatening.
