If it's going to be labelled 'so-called' Islamic State then they should also be referred to as so-called British

Our math skills degrade over time. If you don't use it, you'll lose it! He got most of them right. We have YouTube now. There are thousands of math tutorial videos on every topic. Who needs to calculate anything today?

The road to fame is complicated, and sometimes the story of an artist to the top of the pyramid is worthy of an Oscar film. Ed Sheeran has such a history fraught with issues and moments in which he said that life was unfair to him. Now it is among the most respected artists around the world, his albums sold millions of copies and trample fans to go to his concerts. Life was not always so nice to Britain for 23 years.

I do hope they remember to fix the other issues with the service, been unsubbed 3 times from channels I watch regularly, and find videos don't always go into the subbox which is frustrating (Yes I use the bell, but why another step?).

The Trump administration does not want the truth about anything to get out. He is an illegitimate President and he knows it. He's a liar and a crook- that is the truth. The real press needs to keep doing their job. Keep pressing this administration, your responsibility is to keep them accountable and to make sure the truth gets out to the public.

03/01/2017 at 14:47
If it had just been they were racist douchebags, then they probably would have only gotten a short sentence. However, when they started to threaten people with guns, then it becomes much much more. I am not saying 20 and 15 years are appropriate sentences, especially when rapists and child molesters get light sentences, but they do deserve stiff sentences. This judge made an example of them. Hate crimes wont be tolerated.

"What Trump did with Carryn Owens was not presidential at all; it was obscene. He authorized an attack that killed her husband, tweeted during the raid, shifted the blame for said raid, unapologetically milked her husband's story for applause, and then proceeded to brag about the size of applause from the story. Please stop lowering the bar for this man."
03/01/2017 at 13:19
Let's be clear here, the applause is for Chief Petty Officer Ryan Owens, and his family. Not for Trump. Don't get that confused.

If this happened on Hillary's watch the Republicans would be scrambling to do an investigation, but because their puppet President doesn't read the orders that he signs it's okay. Hypocrites.

A growing trend now for UK Uber drivers is to not want their names on the log book when they buy the car. Have up to 6 different people financing the purchase on credit of which they are none. So that's a lot of addresses and names which don't belong to the Uber driver. So not traceable. This comes from a Ford dealership who see cars driving away without road tax as the driver refuses to pay it and insurance. Seeing his name is not on any of the paper work it's the rest of the road users that pay.

"Leadership help". What . The . Flying . ***k???
He needs a simple kick under the butt. Why does he think that the fact that he happened to turn up as chief of some company means he should get "leadership help" instead of being told off severely and be given the upbringing his parents apparently failed to provide him with?
Or is "leadership help" actually all that, but just just heavily overpriced, and with participants only from this "leadership" bubble? A sort of "safe room" for rude leaders, so to speak?

Facebook is very inconsistent with what violates its terms and conditions. So much is allowed that should be banned and is pretty obvious as such and then they do things like ban this or ban pictures of breast cancer survivors because they show a tattoo over where their breast once was. Its just plain stupid.
