haplogroup in their Y chromosomes were residents of Doggerland a real life Atlantis that was swallowed up by rising seas in the millennia following the Ice Age Forget Atlantis talk about shades of Tolkien s Numenor Doggerland was a low lying region of forests and wetlands that paleontologists believe connected Britain to the European mainland And it must have been a hunter s paradise Present day fishing trawlers in the North Sea occasionally dredge up the bones and tusks of the mastodons and other game from the ocean floor Doggerland had its heyday between about 12 000 years ago when the Ice Age climate began to ameliorate and 9 000 years ago when the meltwaters of the gradually retreating glaciers caused sea levels to rise drowning the hunter s paradise Doggerland s inhabitants

gear off the Inner Hebrides and even IF the Rooskies would be sneaking around in German coastal waters they d hardly ping around with active sonar which would give away their presence Active sonar btw is far more often used by surface ships and maritime patrol aircraft in ASW exercises Submarines prefer to remain silent And then there are countless non military applications for sonar scientists cartographers use it for sea bed scanning commercial fish finders and treasure hunters etc Last edited by TotalMayhem Yesterday at 08 18 PM Thus all which you call Sin Destruction in brief Evil that

Readium icon This will open the Readium library To add a book click the icon in the top right corner click Choose File and browse to the file location Then double click on a book in your library to begin reading In the top right corner you will find a cogwheel icon which opens the Settings menu where you can customise the book to your likings font size theme margins layout page effects and keyboard shortcuts Final thoughts there is little left to be desired except maybe support for other formats than EPUB the option to change the font face and a page percentage counter Other than that

the playback speed You can specify a default folder for your audiobooks and hide this folder so that other media players do not import the files It also has a sleep timer and a lock screen widget so the phone doesn t have to be unlocked if you want to pause resume Material Audiobook Player is entirely free and open source If you re looking for free audio books visit The Internet Archive they also

  • Adoption of New gTLDs
    set of markets and not a single global market The new gTLDs are targeting a position in these markets where they have to coexist with other TLDs Some have unique propositions for the registrant in that they are descriptive or niche TLDs that are closer to ccTLDs in nature in that the registrant self identifies with the TLD in a similar way to the ccTLDs For Ireland the ccTLD is IE Many people in Ireland expect a business here to have a ie domain name and then perhaps a com There s a very curious effect in a ccTLD dominant market where the extension the ie etc becomes psychologically invisible This means that keyword domain names do not necessarily do well because of the self organising properties of ccTLDs A business name or city name can be more important in a ccTLD If a new gTLD registry has its market position right then it should gain registrations but as it is a pseudo ccTLD the registration volume will be lower than that of other TLDs and the rate of registrations will be lower Promotion matters If a TLD launches and is not promoted then few if any will register domain names in that TLD But more importantly the TLDs have to be promoted to the registrars first These are the domain name registration and hosting companies Getting this part wrong can cripple a new TLD The big player in this space is Godaddy If the new TLD is not on Godaddy s list of domain name options for customers and it is targeting the US market then it doesn t exist Promotion at a country level market is even more difficult It is most definitely not a case of if you launch it they will register The end users the registrants have to know the TLD exists and have to have be given some kind of value proposition for registering and developing and using domain names in that TLD Timing has been a big problem for the new gTLDs Most of it is down to ICANN banjaxing the launch schedules and having registries launch at the wrong time of year and too closely to each other Like all markets the domain name market has seasonal trends Too many TLDs launching close to each other creates a confusion in their potential markets The one thing that really decides whether a new gTLD is a success is usage The registrants have to start developing websites on these new gTLDs and using them for e mail purposes Some new gTLDs are remarkable in that they already have web usage and development Others have extremely low usage I consider most of the stuff that has been published on web usage on various sites to be just cargo cult rubbish and typically from people who don t understand the complexities of measuring usage and development A developed website on a domain name means that it is not just a registered domain name There is a good chance that the domain name will be renewed In com and some of the ccTLDs the web usage level for domain names can approach 30 This does mean that approximately 70 can be parked on Pay Per Click PPC advertising or coming soon pages or not even active The further one gets from the non core TLDs com and the ccTLD the lower the web usage rate Some of the new gTLDs are actually doing a lot better than people expected in web usage and development terms but there are some possible also rans that are visible from this data Regards jmcc Disclosure Not just a random bystander More a watch stander Reply With Quote Yesterday 08 02 PM

attracted to my niche dot wine which the French government vigorously opposed by the international potential Globally 38 billion bottles produced annually increasing at about 1 a year I m hoping to sell 250 000 in the US before I move overseas 1 300 wine trademark holders registered during the Sunrise Period which ended in December 3 700 like me registered during the Early Access Period which ran for 10 days and ended Jan 25 It s only been open to the public since Jan 27 and another 2 000 have since registered Online wine sales in the US seems relatively developed compared to elsewhere even though there are some bizarre alcohol laws in the US Makes it harder to succeed here but if you do it s easier elsewhere I ve noticed on trips to Europe that US wine is poorly represented It s either cheap crap or very expensive high end stuff and not much in the middle I first need to get an online biz in the US up first hopefully by June licensing can be slow Then maybe use Ireland as an EU base presuming I can meet licensing requirements etc I have a Chinese sister in law capable of helping on developing in China I managed to snag bargains wine values wine plus best bargains deals

eventually use them all to promote supplement each other There are currently 7 000 wine domains registered 5 000 of which were registered before it opened to the public on Jan 27 which suggests good initial trade interest and a likelihood of wine websites making it online That already puts it in the top half 186 of all new gTLDs Only 100 gTLDs have more than 16 000 registered 35 with more than 50 00 and 5 with more than 500 000 There have been a total of 1 3M new gTLD registrations so far this year and while obviously most of them are coming from China 2016 is currently on target to more than

adjusted for taxes etc about 15 50 in Ire But that will change over time to include more US wines The California wine market 4th largest in the world is much more sophisticated than the three larger

high rise or low rise is it access to good housing is about wealth or the lack of it Completely agree with the above but the fact that the Ballymun Towers were named after the 1916 revolutionaries would suggest to me that when they were built they were heralded as an immensely positive and forward thinking development including by people who thought of themselves as progressives and on the left It would be interesting to find the archives from contemporaneous news articles Originally Posted by C Flower Was Theodore Dalrymple a reactionary Theodore Dalrymple who is still alive and well would probably consider himself an irregular conservative with the emphasis on small c I doubt if his writings are particularly popular on the left but in his former career as a prison doctor he did more to help the underprivileged than most progressives ever do Last edited by pluralist 31 01 2016 at 12 09 AM New test replace the word Muslims with Jews and then ask yourself Do I sound like a Nazi Reply

he was more of a crusader than reactionary He was primarily focused on environmental issues and didn t stray too far from that remit I don t recall him championing a lot of other issues I recall at the time thinking he was a bit of an odd duck in that he seemed unable to make a lot of political friends A bit like a certain environmental poster currently on PW That said during the 70 s 80 s there was rarely a week that he didn t make some news He was effective at advancing his objectives but they were somewhat limited The city is the better for his presence As a general

  • Why Are Loop Cord Blinds Still Killing Children ?
    that time in Europe but it must be dozens Neither am I sure that the suggestion that Ireland could not have banned them is correct Last edited by C Flower 17 08 2012 at 08 29 AM Reply With Quote

Irish Oifigil IRISH STANDARD SPECIFICATIONS I S 386 2012 AND I S 387 2012 NSAI in exercise of the power conferred by Section 16 3 of the National Standards Authority of Ireland Act 1996 No 28 of 1996 and with the consent of the Minister for Jobs Enterprise and Innovation has declared the following specifications to be Standard Specifications I S 386 2012 Safety of corded window products Guidance for procurement measuring manufacture installation and retrofitting I S 387 2012 Internal corded window products Safety requirements Copies of Irish Standards may be purchased by contacting NATIONAL STANDARDS AUTHORITY OF IRELAND 1 Swift Square Northwood Santry Dublin 9 Tel 01 857 6730 01 857 6731 Fax 01 857 6729 www standards ie Why are they not online Do they think that every household will write away to buy them The NSAI advises parents of some simple steps that can be taken immediately to remove any potential hazards from existing blinds and help to prevent tragic accidents and fatalities in the home Cords ending in a loop are particularly risky If possible cut the cord to get rid of the loop and install tassels Cords should end at least 1 6 metres above the ground so children cannot reach them Replace cords with curtain or blind wands Where cords cannot be cut a tie down or tension device should be used to pull the cord tight and secure it to the floor or wall Never place a child s cot bed playpen or high chair near a window or patio door where a child could reach a curtain or blind cord Keep sofas chairs tables shelves or bookcases away from windows to prevent children climbing up and reaching curtain or blind cords NSAI is currently undertaking a number of proactive steps to ensure that Irish manufacturers and suppliers of window blinds are made aware of the current revised standard Mr Buckley said Last edited by C Flower 16 08 2012 at 11 25 PM Reply With Quote 08 01 2015 01 53 PM 6 C Flower View Profile View Forum Posts Private Message

Christmas is speaking on Talk to Joe telling parents to go and check blind cords We are still not doing anything systematic to advise and ensure that parents and other child minders do what is necessary to make blinds safe If you can t trust yourself to manage this stick to curtains We cannot withdraw our cards from the game Were we as silent and mute as stones our very passivity would be
