Steris PLC, a company with $2.6 billion in annual revenue, is planning to redomicile from the UK to Ireland due to Brexit. What that means is that, as an Irish company, the Irish tax authorities will collect its taxes going forward and not HMRC. 2/50 seekingalpha.com/filing/4225572
8 health providers have warned of medicine shortages in the event of a no-deal Brexit: "we do not believe that the current medicine supply plans will suffice, and we will have widespread shortages if we do not respond urgently." 3/50 …33r3krz5b97d1-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/upl…
No one knows the skeletons in Donald Trump's closet better than Donald Trump. No one knows the crimes he has committed, aided or abetted so well. No one has such a firm grasp on the wrong-doing that was the daily bread of the Trump Organization, his children & close associates.
Now, after an election defeat that was humiliating regardless of what pundits may say,a blue wave that produce greater Democratic gains in the House than any since Watergate & big wins at the state level,Trump is haunted by his knowledge of what coming investigations may uncover.
He does not know what Mueller may have. It may not implicate him. It seems likely to implicate others close to him. He may have a plan for sidestepping the findings of campaign finance wrong-doing relating to hush money uncovered by the prosecutors of the SDNY.

I have news for you! The next tweets will explain you in detail how you still can do #geolocation#search in #Instagram without breaking any rules. HT @OscarMager It's also a good example of how Facebook and Instagram are slowly merging. So here it comes!
First, you have to start with a place in Facebook. Let's go to the homepage of @greenpeaceusa in Facebook via facebook.com/greenpeaceusa/ This is just the start of our quest. We need to make an ID out of this page first. (2/7)
Now go to my graph.tips/beta and enter the word greenpeaceusa in the box under 2, "Search by username" as shown here. You will get the number 5435784683 right? Don't ask "so what", just copy and paste it and don't ask any questions (3/7)
1/36 *nerd hat on* As a perpetual student of history + geography, the growth of hyperbolic doomsday journalism on #climatechange/#globalwarming is really, really irritating to me. I also find it deeply irresponsible. History teaches a lot of lessons that this journalism skips.
2/36 The doomsday journalism is of a type – breathless predictions of terror, a black + white of everything, + we’ve never faced this. This journalism overwhelms people into being unable to plan. That is irresponsible itself, especially for figuring out how to handle it.
3/36 Some of this is because people, especially in the US, love being Cassandra. We also have the privilege now of knowing what’s going on. But it is also irresponsible to not consider climate change as an extreme version of a long cycle of humans fucking shit up.
I thought I was done with the @DineshDSouza nonsense, but apparently it's been gnawing at him so much I'm now part of his speaking gigs.
Here he is at Liberty University. Start it up about 18:40:
This segment really is Peak D'Souza in that it manages to present an argument that uses a single cherry-picked fact to push against a much larger body of evidence on the other side *and* it somehow manages to get that one fact wrong.
Let's take a look.
First of all, the cherry-picking.
Again, this is D'Souza's classic MO, taking one small detail out of context, ascribing total explanatory value to it, and then hoping his audience doesn't know any better.
Look: Know: The face of G-D hoving upon The Waters, the face of your Prophet, obscured by The Anathema, The doom it may somewhat preventably cause thus planet, and the Truth you can no longer deny though you read and evangelise a heavily edited book to, extort from each other...
WPM-Desa-Whitaker-Wikileaks-Occupy Democrats and Rabbits! Part 3
I'm BACK! Are we ready to figure out what all these rabbits and money-men are doing?
Ok!! Let's run with the bunnies for a while. Note: rabbit holes will occur.
First...a little prep work. This section will be mostly focused (I hope, HA) on Raven's research...which is MASSIVE). What Raven has done is basically plumbed a network of seeming connections between Trump site and umm...lots of things. So excite!
(No, not that Matrix. Ok maybe -sorta...i dunno)
First, find a domain name, then track its IP/Route addresses (public data) by making a txt file of those addys. Save it to a base of similar domain names. We're gonna use the search function to compare similarities.
The #RuleofLaw is at stake; we cannot allow this to be a partisan issue. Good to see some notable conservatives speaking up. “Conservative lawyers are not doing enough to protect constitutional principles that are being undermined by . . this president.” nytimes.com/2018/11/14/us/…
“We believe in the rule of law, the power of truth, the independence of the criminal justice system, the imperative of individual rights and the necessity of civil discourse.” Amen. We need people speaking up on all points, including #ProtectMuellerNOW.
“The president has attacked the Justice Department for indictments of Republican congressmen . . and he’s urged that the Justice Department investigate his political opponents,” Peter Keisler said. “That’s a fundamentally wrong and very dangerous [and should be condemned]."
