Most people take more from the government than they pay in.

Look it up.

Good job they have the option then as mentioned in the article that we are talking about. It's almost like you agree with me.

I'm worried about pain. Also pain lasting a long/ permanent time.

Also I had epididymitis already. So maybe I shouldn't go for it.

But too many guys get lied to and end up with a kid they didn't want. That's my biggest worry.

Its about the country though not just the armed forced. Also isn't not just armed forces, you can read it in the article.

There is maybe a subtle but big difference between being a fat slob and being powerful.

Big guys/ strong guys always seemed to be attractive at least to some people. Henry the 8th was big to look good. Apparently he was much slimmer as a youth.

But I'm not a woman and I have no first hand experience on being overweight so what do I know?

"Yesterday France announced the winners of the 250 MW South Brittany floating offshore wind auction, the world’s first commercial-scale floating offshore wind auction. This is a major milestone for floating offshore wind technology. So far Europe has only built small pilot and demonstrator projects. With yesterday’s announcement floating wind took a big step towards commercialisation and large-scale deployment."

Renewable energy accounted for more than 30% of the world’s electricity for the first time last year following a rapid rise in wind and solar power, according to new figures.

A report on the global power system has found that the world may be on the brink of driving down fossil fuel generation, even as overall demand for electricity continues to rise.

Analysis of Home Office data showed the impact of the shift from EU to non-EU migrants. Migrants from the Middle East, North Africa and Turkey aged 25-64 were almost twice as likely to be economically inactive as someone born in the UK.

Spanish migrants typically earned around 40pc more than migrants from Pakistan or Bangladesh, while migrants from countries such as Canada, Singapore and Australia paid between four and nine times as much income tax as migrants from Somalia or Pakistan.

I suck at spelling and would like to know a word I have typed is wrong or not. Ideally with a red underline.

I really struggle looking at text I have written and seeing the mistakes. I have tried Samsung, openboard, gboard. None seem to fix the issue.

I'm willing to download anything as long as it's not a privacy concern. Is there any way to get what I want.

I have a Samsung 22+ if that makes a difference

"Spanish consultancy AleaSoft Energy Forecasting recorded negative hourly electricity prices for all but one European energy market it analyzed during the first week of April, including in the Spanish and Portuguese markets for the first time. It also registered an all-time production record for photovoltaic energy in Portugal and the second highest value ever recorded in Italy"

"In a statement, the Ministry of Defence (MoD) said the Royal Air Force (RAF) will repel "any airborne attacks within range" of operations in the region.

It is understood RAF jets have flown over Iraq and Syria, not Israel.

PM Rishi Sunak condemned Iran's "reckless attack", pledging the UK would "continue to stand up for Israel's security". "

A Labour government would aim to increase defence spending to 2.5% of GDP "as soon as resources allow", Sir Keir Starmer has said.

The Labour leader also told the i newspaper he would conduct a strategic review of defence and security "to be clear what the priorities are".

Sir Keir's aim matches that of Chancellor Jeremy Hunt, who has also said he wants defence spending to rise to 2.5%

EU pushes to curb China’s green tech market lead

Brussels’ new probe into Chinese wind turbines comes as Beijing grabs dominance over global market for solar panels.

On paper, the EU sees China as a partner in the fight against climate change.

But the trade reality tells a different story. 

As Beijing responds to weak domestic demand with heavy state subsidies, it’s a perfect recipe for overcapacity — from electric vehicles to solar panels — just as the European Union puts the green transition at the top of its policy agenda.

On Tuesday, EU competition chief Margrethe Vestager will launch a new anti-subsidy investigation into China’s fast-growing and increasingly dominant wind turbine sector, as exclusively reported by POLITICO’s China Watcher.

Europe was once a leader in the renewable energy source, but China’s rapid development since 2018 has inflicted billions in losses on its leading wind power players, including Denmark’s Vestas and German-owned Siemens Gamesa, forcing them into drastic cost cuts.

The EU is keen to avoid a mistake it made over the past decade, when China’s solar panel-makers all but killed their European competitors. Today’s playbook on wind turbines is indeed “all too familiar” to European policymakers, said one EU diplomat, who was granted anonymity to discuss the imminent policy announcement.
