  1. Danny Drinkwater

    He's keeping Drinkwater out of the Chelsea team
  2. Time added on - it's becoming a joke

    In the 2nd half of the Liverpool / Watford game there was 3 goals and 5 subs = 2 mins added time?

    Bit more thread derailing. What I want to know is why was my N Did He (Ndidi) interview banned on youtube and yet all theses and hundreds of others are allowed to stay? That assist is proving to be one of my all time Leicester goals, it's so cool and arrogant a rarity for LCFC.

    Washing things thoroughly is not easy, just one example I never wash plastic containers that have had chicken in them as you then risk contaminating your own facilities. Some containers are just impossible to get clean without considerable effort and if you attempt to you then leave contaminated water remnants which will leak onto and paper or cardboard.

    Not from tins, open plastic packaging, wine/beer bottles. Practically every food container could easily have remnants of food. I've even heard that they can't recycle most pizza boxes because of the food contamination. Not saying this is all fact but it's what I've heard/read in reports hence my "confusing" comment.
  6. Absolute cvnts of our time Pt.MXXVI

    A motorist was stopped from driving along a motorway in a van without brakes, MOT, tax or insurance. The unlicensed driver was using the handbrake to slow down when it was stopped on the M6 in Staffordshire on Thursday, the Central Motorway Police Group said. Officers said the driver was reported for all the offences, but no arrests were made. The CMPG described the driver's actions as an "absolute disgrace".

    Because it will be in the same bag as the food containers and it doesn't matter how well you clean the food containers they'll all ways be remnants left.

    Let's hope nobody has a vagina or penis leak problem that want advice on.
  9. Crazy Stat Time!

    ...and the 27.8 just got higher.

    Recycling is getting very confusing. I'm in the Oadby & Wigston council area. Currently we have 4 options - paper/cardboard, tins, plastic etc, bottles and general rubbish. From April we're moving to 2 options all the recyclables and general rubbish. Now I've always understood that if you contaminate the paper and cardboard with food then it can't be recycled or at least makes it very difficult to do so. So how is this supposed to increase the amount of recycling?

  12. Laptop again won't connect to the Internet. Windows 10 All other devices including Windows 7 pc, android phone and tablet, Windows 10 tablet all working When I switch on it shows a good connection in the tray and also says Connected, secured. Gives me the option to disconnect. When I open chrome and go to a website it tells me there is no Internet connection, the wifi icon then changes to include an exclamation mark and I get the message there is no Internet connection. If I then leave it in that state after a while the internet connection connects and the whole process starts again. I've run the diagnostics and get DNS Server isn't responding. Clicking on Details I get... The page XML cannot be displayed. Cannot view XML input using XSL style sheet. Please correct error and the click refresh button. Sadly it doesn't tell me how to correct the error. Any solutions welcomed. Thanks.

    Microplastics are 'littering' riverbeds By Victoria GillScience correspondent, BBC News 5 hours ago Share this with Facebook Share this with Twitter Share Media captionWatch: A look under the microscope to discover the hidden microplastics lurking in our waters Microscopic plastic beads, fragments and fibres are littering riverbeds across the UK - from rural streams to urban waterways. This is according to a study that analysed sediments from rivers in north-west England. Scientists from the University of Manchester tested river sediments at 40 sites throughout Greater Manchester and found "microplastics everywhere". There is evidence that such small particles can enter the food chain. Image copyrightJAMIE WOODWARD Image captionPlastic microbeads, like these recovered from the River Mersey, are now banned in cosmetics in the UK The findings, published in the journal Nature Geoscience, are the first from a "systematic basin-wide" study, the researchers say. In a first round of tests, just one of the sites - in the upper reaches of the River Goyt, which is one of the tributaries of the River Mersey - contained no plastic. But when the researchers returned to that site to repeat their test, that area had become contaminated. "I think that it is likely that there are even higher concentrations in some of the large rivers passing through global megacities," said lead researcher Dr Rachel Hurley. "We just need to get out there and see. We still don't know the full scale of the microplastic problem," she told BBC News. "Wherever you have people and industry, you will have high levels of microplastic," added Prof Jamie Woodward, from Manchester University's School of Geography. 'Plastic hotspots' Image copyrightJ WOODWARD Image captionSome parts of the River Tame contained more than half a million plastic particles per square metre of riverbed To analyse river sediments, researchers isolated patches of riverbed and measured the concentration within those patches. Some urban "hotspots" contained hundreds of thousands of plastic particles per square metre. This included a site at the River Tame in Denton - a downstream, suburban stretch of river - that contained more than half a million plastic particles per square metre. "According to our literature search on microplastics in the ocean, in sediments on beaches, in lakes - and the small amount of data on rivers elsewhere - this is currently the highest concentration found anywhere," said Prof Woodward. The scientists now want to investigate the specific sources of the plastic fibres, microbeads and fragments they found. One recent study in the US linked wastewater treatment plants with the release of plastic into the environment. And the scientists think that wastewater is likely to make a large contribution - particularly of microfibres from synthetic clothing and microbeads. "We welcomed the ban on microbeads in personal care products introduced earlier this year," said Prof Woodward. "And we want to monitor the effect of that ban. "But microbeads are also used in industrial processes - in the moulding of larger plastic products. So there are likely to be multiple sources. "In urban environments, microplastics may come from wastewater and sewer systems, from plastic litter that is broken up and fragmented, and even from the air. Sources may not be active all of the time, so they are difficult to track - but we are working on it!" said Dr Hurley. Flushed by flooding Image copyrightJAMIE WOODWARD Image captionEven rural stream beds are contaminated with microplastics The researchers gathered their first set of samples prior to the winter floods of 2015 and 2016. That extreme flooding was particularly severe in their river system - when weeks of heavy rain wreaked havoc in northern England, Northern Ireland and parts of Wales. The team returned to the sites to see if the levels of plastic had changed. This revealed that the floods had "flushed out" approximately 70% of the microplastics stored in these riverbeds, equivalent to almost a tonne of plastic, or nearly 50 billion particles. It also eradicated microbead contamination at seven sites. So the rivers are able to "cleanse themselves", the researchers explained. But, as Prof Woodward pointed out, "all of that will ultimately end up in the ocean". Dr James Rothwell added that, since many of the particles this study detected were so small, they would simply slip through the filtration nets that are used, as standard, to sift microplastics out of the ocean. "The implications of that are that we might well be underestimating by several orders of magnitude how much microplastic is in the oceans that has been delivered by rivers - flushed out during flood events," he said.
