United Kingdom - 2020

 
2020 has been, at least, a turbulent year for the United Kingdom. The COVID-19 pandemic has ushered in unprecedented times of paranoia and uncertainty, and no facet of life has gone unaffected. Yet, as the year comes to a close, and with it, the pandemic slows, the UK has the resolve to come out stronger and more powerful. In the final months of 2020, the Tory government announced a series of sweeping infrastructure updates, which have received widespread domestic support.
 
HS2 Construction - Phase One and Two
 
Planned to be completed in roughly early to mid 2026, Phase One of construction on the new HS2 railway, which will carry passengers at a routine speed of 225 mph between London and Birmingham. This is an upgrade from previous plans, which were reviewed and subsequently redrafted in 2019, which placed the HS2 line at a routine operating speed of only 205 mph. This increase in commute time could be vital to keeping the connection between two of Britain’s most major cities. Plans for Phase Two have been approved, and the government has taken the first steps to prepare construction to the city of Crewe, and eventually into Manchester by late 2026. Additionally, plans have been drawn up and preparations begun for Phase Two construction in the East Midlands ranging out to 2027.
 
Crossrail Construction Resumption
 
Crossrail, an underground rail development in the London area running east-west across the city designed to alleviate overcrowding on the city’s existing transport systems. Originally planned to open in 2018, Crossrail has been over-budget for some time. Additionally, construction was halted for much of 2020, further delaying the line from opening. However, with a budget now reaching nearly 20 billion pounds, with one of the operating companies, Transport for London, ordering an additional four tunnel-boring machines (These things are dope btw) from German company Herrenknecht AG, which has supplied the previous ten machines used in this operation. Additionally, they have sought to acquire powerful Ground-penetrating radars from American company Raytheon Systems. Authorities plan to use ground-penetrative techniques, combined with Inpipe-Penetrating Radar techniques in nearby buildings and sewers to more efficiently excavate tunnels and preserve any potential archaeological artefacts. This will also speed up estimated completion time. The government now expects Crossrail to be completed by December 2021.
 
Crossrail Preservation Efforts
 
The Crossrail construction has been a dream opportunity for archaeologists, who have found numerous artefacts in the construction zones of the tunnels beneath London. With improved radar techniques, combined with efforts working alongside international groups of archaeologists and preservationists, to ensure that we can recover our history and learn more of those who came before. However, with the current Tory government encouraging the shift of DCMS-controlled historical and cultural centers to a commercial-based platform, The McDonald Institute of Archaeological Research at Cambridge has invested in a multi-level, permanent exhibit dedicated to the preservation and display of everyday artefacts discovered in the dirt beneath England, free to the public. They have made an effort to acquire as many artefacts from private collectors, as well as the construction companies, as possible, and have an impressive 80-item exhibit.
 
Heathrow Airport Expansion
 
London is a crowded city, but at a certain point, it gets a little obnoxious. And with everyone a bit more on-edge regarding proximity and crowds following the COVID-19 pandemic, it is obvious that London needs to expand its transport capacity in multiple sectors. The Heathrow Expansion was a go for 2020, however it was halted in February 2020 over climate concerns. Following a reconsideration of the plans, and subsequent passing by a Tory-led parliament, the runway is to go ahead as planned for construction, despite the possibility of increasing CO2 emissions of the airport by millions of tonnes per year. The new third runway, which would run above the M25 speedway, would only disrupt the two communities of Harmondsworth and Longford. Additionally, a new terminal will be constructed on the southwest side of the airport to better facilitate travel, as the airport currently operates at 98% capacity. Two hotels will also be constructed on-site at Heathrow to improve passenger experience, with contracts being bidded off to British company Travelodge and American company Wyndham Worldwide. Finally, public transport routes will be optimized, and additional stops and services will be provided. Overall, this is estimated to bring in a huge number of temporary jobs during the construction phase, as well as at least 2,000 permanent jobs at the airport alone post-upgrade. This is not to mention the unspeakable economic benefits of increasing the capacity of Britain’s most valuable economic lifeline.
 
5G Rollout
 
Perhaps the most controversial of the new rollouts, the UK government has dropped Huawei for 5G negotiations following increased wariness of potential security concerns regarding Chinese-made electronics. The government has since sought to secure a deal with Swedish tech giant Ericsson. Although some networks have launched minor, localized test 5G networks, Ericsson will be tasked with providing the entirety of the United Kingdom with 5G access, using their patented MIMO-based method for transmission. Speedy implementation of 5G is critical to the UK’s post-COVID economic recovery, and Ericsson plans to have a majority of population centers covered by 5G by 2022. They plan to work closely with local government, and existing 5G networks with companies such as Vodafone, to ensure Britain can be as interconnected as possible.
 
Investing in Information
 
With the news breaking of underwater data centers being found not only effective, but environmentally sustainable in the long-term, the government leaped into action to ensure this success, which took place off the coast of the Orkney Islands, remained as localized to the UK as possible.
It is true that the waters north of Scotland are the ideal conditions for Microsoft’s underwater data centers. As such, the government seeks to acquire a contract for Microsoft to place up to twelve more data centers of varying sizes, perhaps dedicated to quantum computations or AI research, in key recommended locations off the coast of the UK, primarily off the northern and western coasts of Scotland. With other companies now seeking to get in on the action, the government has also permitted what is considered a lofty, ambitious project.
UK company New Generation Data Europe, who operates Europe’s largest datacenter in Wales, is seeking to create a large datacenter off the northern coast of Wales, the size of which dwarfs any experiments done to date. Though in the early phases of planning, the company expects to use the information learned from this experiment to upgrade its main center, which operates on a massive computer first designed in 1998.
 
TLDR;

2020.09.24 06:13 TheMidnightArchive The Abduction and Murder of Amber Hagerman

A Trip to The Grocery Store
The late winter in Texas is a mild time usually, with steady wind and a biting chill in the air. The season is one of change, the life force of the previous year is fading away to succumb to a newness imbued by the heat of the Spring and Summer. January 12th, 1996 in Arlington, Texas was no different, the sun was shining, the wind was steady, and the temperature hovered around the mid-sixties. On this day Donna Whitson and her two children, nine-year-old Amber and five-year-old Ricky Hagerman were in Arlington visiting Donna’s parents, Glenda and Jimmie Whitson. The family arrived at their destination around 3pm and upon disembarking Donna’s car the kids asked to ride their bikes, the ones that Donna had her parents keep at their home for them. Donna, without a second thought, assented to the request with the limitation that the kids stay within a block of their grandparents’ home. She wanted them to be safe.
Once astride their bicycles and away from nagging adults, Amber disregarded the boundary set upon her and her brother. Amber led Ricky to the local neighborhood play spot, a shuttered Winn-Dixie grocery store and after approximately 15 minutes of riding around the parking lot and loading dock the younger Ricky was ready to turn back home, whether out of fear of being beyond their boundary or being tired is unknown. What is known is that Amber had elected to stay and ride her bike around the parking lot of the store on her own for a while longer, that Ricky went home alone, and that in the intervening time something horrible would happen to Amber that would shape substance and conscious of the her family forever.
On January 12th, Mr. Jim Kevil was sitting on his back porch looking out over his yard and fence, a view that happened to encompass the next-door Winn-Dixie store’s loading dock and the street it was on. Around 3:15 pm Mr. Kevil saw a lone young girl riding a colorful bike around the grocery store loading dock when a dark colored truck quickly pulled into the parking lot. Jim Kevil would later state that the driver of the truck was either white or Hispanic and between the ages of 25-40, this unknown subject grabbed Amber, who let out a scream and began kicking her abductor. The driver then put Amber in his vehicle before he sped off West bound down Abrams Road. Not just a passive witness, Mr. Kevil called 911 to report the incident to the police and to try to aid in the capture of the kidnapper and the return of the little girl. This would be the last time that anyone would see Amber Hagerman alive.
After arriving home alone five-year-old Ricky Hagerman was sent by his family back to the Winn-Dixie to retrieve his sister. Turning his bike around Ricky did as requested, only to return to an empty parking lot. Only a brief eight minutes had elapsed since he had last seen his sister, but it was too late; Amber was gone. Ricky once again arrived alone to the Whitson home prompting Grandfather Jimmie Whitson to race to the store in his car to search for Amber himself. Jimmie would arrive at the store at about the same time as an Arlington police officer, summoned by Jim Kevil’s 911 call did; the only remnant of Amber was her abandoned bicycle.
Law Enforcement, including the local police and the FBI (involved as a result of the pleas of Amber’s distraught family), coupled with a mass of volunteers began a wide net search for the missing girl, but came up empty. Amber had vanished.
Discovery
January 16, 1996 is a day that Amber’s family will never forget. Four days after she had been taken by an unidentified male from that Winn-Dixie parking lot, Amber Hagerman’s body was discovered in the early morning hours by an anonymous man walking his dog near the Forest Hills Apartment Complex in Arlington, Texas. Her body was found face down in a creek approximately 4 miles from her abduction site. Prior to this, apartment maintenance workers had been in that area and seen nothing, suggesting that the remains were either placed there after the workers had left or moved down stream by a torrential rainstorm that had just occurred. Amber’s family was informed shortly after the discovery, shocked they initially refused to believe the news with her father quoted in a New York Times article written at the time as saying, “She’s still alive” to the reporters covering the case and camped outside the Whitson home.
Amber was discovered wearing nothing but a single sock and the medical examiner would later confirm investigators suspicions, there was evidence of sexual assault and physical abuse, the cause of death: lacerations to the neck and throat. Additionally, the medical examiner stated that there was evidence that Amber had been kept alive for at least two days after her abduction before she was murdered, and her body disposed of.
Investigation Still Ongoing
More than 20 years later the investigation is still technically ongoing, to date the Arlington Police Department (APD) has not formally announced that they have any suspects or persons of interest. APD Detective Ben Lopez stated in a recent interview that the APD still receives tips regularly regarding the case and the department thoroughly investigates each one like it could be the piece of the puzzle that finally gives Amber’s family closure and justice.
An explanation of this unsolved murder most likely lies in the fact that Amber’s body was left in running water for an indeterminate amount of time, coupled with the storm that raised the creek level and most likely moved the body from the dump site, forensic evidence would have been all but erased and any physical evidence diluted or washed away. Not helping the investigation is the fact that there is only one witness to the crime: Jim Kevil was the sole person to come forward with information regarding the abduction, despite the fact that Amber was taken in broad daylight on a residential street. To date no one else has come forward with evidence or statements to aid in the apprehension of the unknown subject. Some reports assert that this is a result of the immigrant community in the area and the traditional apprehension of this population in talking to law enforcement thought that remains unsubstantiated speculation.
It is believed that Amber’s abductor and murderer was a stranger to her given that he took her by force and did not attempt to talk her into his vehicle. With this, I agree with the official narrative. Where I differ is on why Amber was taken. Based on the speed at which the abduction occurred it suggests to me that Amber may have been watched for some time before being taken. As stated previously Amber Hagerman was abducted in a window of approximately 8 minutes from when her brother left and then returned to bring her home. The official narrative is that this was an act of extreme opportunity when the perpetrator just happened to be driving by when he saw her alone. This would suggest that there was an event that triggered sporadic actions in the perpetrator, to quote a popular television show there must have been a stressor that induced this action.
Regardless of the why, the fact of the matter is that Amber Hagerman’s killer is still at large. He has gone unpunished for his heinous actions against this innocent little girl and by extension her family. As a result of chance and a fluke of nature no evidence or additional witnesses remain of what happened on that fateful winter day. Amber’s killer is nameless, and her family is left with no closure or answers, only questions and heartache.
Possible Suspects
Richard Lee Franks
Richard Lee Franks was charged on March 16, 2000 with the aggravated kidnapping of Opal Jo Jennings from Saginaw, a town a few miles north of Fort Worth. On March 26, 1999 6-year-old Opal was playing with her 3-year-old cousin in a vacant lot next to her grandparent’s house when Franks pulled up to the lot in his black Mercury Cougar. He then exited his vehicle and approached the kids feigning conversation with them. When Franks was close enough, he plucked Opal off the ground, punched her in the chest and put her in his car. What happened next was not unlike in Amber’s case, a large-scale search was launched for Opal led by her family and the local police department, it would not be for five years that Opal would be found. Her remains were discovered in a wooded area while two individuals were riding their horses along a remote trail. As a result of the state in which the remains were found, there was little physical or forensic evidence. What was clear was that the cause of death was most likely the result of a blow to the head. Franks would later be charged with Opal’s kidnapping but not her murder as there was no evidence to prove beyond the shadow of a doubt that Franks had indeed murdered her. In fact, he claimed that he had driven her to a local store to get a drink and left her there. What lends credence to Franks as a potential suspect is the similarity between Amber and Opal, and the way that they were taken. Both were seemingly impulse driven abductions based on the speed in which they occurred.
This link between Opal and Amber was not solely based on the research of internet sleuths. Mark Simpson, an investigating officer in the Hagerman case in an address to the National Children’s Advocacy Center’s 26 Annual National Symposium on Child Abuse to the fact that Franks had prior criminal history involving children, all young, brown haired girls and that Opal’s kidnaping occurred in the same county as Amber’s. Based on proximity, prior history, and similarity in method at the very least one could expect that APD would investigate Franks as a person of interest however, that has not been the case.
Terapon Adhahn
Born in Bangkok, Thailand. Terapon immigrated to the United States as a child when his mother married a U.S. serviceman and he returned to the United States. As he grew older Terapon would become a Buddhist monk as well as follow in his stepfather’s footsteps and join the U.S. Army. Adhahn has been connected to (either directly as the known perpetrator or suspected) multiple offenses, both resolved or unresolved, against children throughout Washington State including rape, kidnapping, and murder. He has also been questioned in connection the Amber Hagerman case by APD though has not been named as an official suspect.
In 1990 Adhahn was charged with sexual assault against a 16-year-old relative. This charge would result in him being forced to register as a sex offender and enter rehabilitation but as a first offense was not enough for him to be deported.
On May 31, 2000 an 11-year-old unnamed (for reasons of privacy) Spanaway County Girl was abducted on her way to school. She was bound and taken to a secluded training field close to the Fort Lewis Military Base where she was repeatedly assaulted over the course of an hour. After the assaults Adhahn left her bound on a road nearby where she would be discovered walking, still bound with her eyes taped over, by a Tacoma City Police Officer.
In December 2005, Adre’anna Jackson would also be abducted on her way to school, she disappeared from Lakewood in Pierce County, Washington and was never seen again. Over a year later, April 2006, skeletal remains were found in a field near her Tillicum neighborhood. Investigators showed pictures of Adhahn to residents who identified him as a known handyman who frequently worked in the area. He is regarded as a person of interest in this case.
On July 4, 2007 Zina Linnik had been watching a firework display with her siblings on a hilltop near her home when her father, Mikhail Linnik, on his back porch presumably also watching the display, heard his daughter cry out. When he arrived at the spot that Zina was taken all that was left was a single shoe she had been wearing, Mikhail also saw a gray Chevy Astro van speeding away and he was able to partially make out the license plate. Four days alter Terapon Adhahn was arrested for the kidnapping of Zina. However, this speedy apprehension was not enough, on condition of prosecution not seeking the death penalty, Adhahn led investigators to the remains of young Zina Linnik. She had been strangled with a zip tie though Adhahn would claim that her death had been an accident.
Additionally, while living in the Tacoma area, Adhahn was responsible for the care of an unnamed (again for the sake of privacy) 12-year-old girl. Her mother allowed the girl to live with Adhahn since she was unable to provide for her daughter, Adhahn only a “friend of her mother’s boyfriend”. Over the course of the next three years Adhahn would subject the young girl to repeated sexual assault, stopping only when she was able to run away after being assaulted at gun point.
Why Terapon Adhahn? It has been reported that, coupled with his extensive and horrendous history with children, Terapon lived for a time with his aunt in the Fort Worth area around 1996. During the investigation, law enforcement noticed striking similarities in the method of kidnapping, assault, and victims in the Adhahn case and with a few officers having been trained in Texas for the Amber Alert System, were familiar with the Hagerman case. Additionally, he used a similar vehicle in the Fort Lewis incident as was seen in Amber’s abduction. Terapon has been question regarding Amber's abduction and murder though not formally named as a suspect or even a person of interest.
Similar Cases
Heidi Seeman – San Antonio, Texas
On August 4, 1990 11-year-old Heidi Seeman was walking home from a sleep-over at a friend house the previous night. Her unnamed friend walked Heidi a part of the way home, to a midpoint between their houses at the intersection of Stahl road and Willow Run Street. Approaching the intersection Heidi’s friend as well as neighbors in the area reported seeing a red car with dark tinted windows pass by the girls slowly, and the driver watching them intently. Thinking nothing much of it, the girls parted ways and Heidi was never seen again. On August 25th, 1990 her remains were found in Hays County, Texas. No additional details were released regarding her death aside from the fact that a medical examiner ruled her death as a result of homicide.
Erica Botello – San Antonio, Texas
Closer in circumstance to Amber Hagerman, 7-year-old Erica Botello was taken on August 23, 1990 from the playground (or road next to depending on source) near her apartment complex. She was not unsupervised or alone the entire time she was playing. Erica was with her Father however he stepped inside for a brief time. When he went back outside, Erica was gone. Her remains would be found on August 25, 1990 in a storm drain about a mile from her home and abduction site. There is little information regarding Erica’s as she was and is eclipsed by the case of Heidi Seeman, a young white girl just a few years older than Erica, a girl of Hispanic dissent, from a wealthier side of San Antonio to the working class area that the Botello family lived in. Any information found on Erica is usually limited to brief sentences and always in tandem to Heidi.
Legacy and Aftermath
What happened to Amber Hagerman is not a mystery, it is known. She was taken from her family, held and assaulted over the course of two days, killed, and her body was disposed of in a creek not far from her abduction site. Her killer did all of these things without leaving any evidence, and slipped away. What isn't known is who did those things to her? Was it someone she knew? Had that person been watching her? Was this all really the result of chance and opportunity? One can hope that these questions, and more, will be answered one day but with each passing day the possibility that they never will be becomes all the more real.
It has been 24 years since Amber Hagerman was abducted and murdered yet her legacy lives on.
Amber’s abduction and murder was the impetus for the creation for the AMBER Alert System. This is a coordinated effort between law enforcement, radio, television, and cellphone broadcast systems to alert the general public in the region of an abduction to the incident and any information that law enforcement has on the abduction such as their physical description as well as the description of the vehicle they were last seen with. This system has resulted in the safe return of almost 1,000 children in the United States since its inception as a regional program in 1997, then national (and international) in 2000 however it is also under scrutiny for saving so few and being so annoying as an alert results in an alarm blaring through the device that receives it, and for saving so few. Critics question whether it saving just one life is worth it, is saving so few worth it?
I say yes.

She was bound and taken to a secluded training field close to the Fort Lewis Military Base where she was repeatedly assaulted over the course of an hour. After the assaults Adhahn left her bound on a road nearby where she would be discovered walking, still bound with her eyes taped over, by a Tacoma City Police Officer.
In December 2005, Adre’anna Jackson would also be abducted on her way to school, she disappeared from Lakewood in Pierce County, Washington and was never seen again. Over a year later, April 2006, skeletal remains were found in a field near her Tillicum neighborhood. Investigators showed pictures of Adhahn to residents who identified him as a known handyman who frequently worked in the area. He is regarded as a person of interest in this case.
On July 4, 2007 Zina Linnik had been watching a firework display with her siblings on a hilltop near her home when her father, Mikhail Linnik, on his back porch presumably also watching the display, heard his daughter cry out. When he arrived at the spot that Zina was taken all that was left was a single shoe she had been wearing, Mikhail also saw a gray Chevy Astro van speeding away and he was able to partially make out the license plate. Four days alter Terapon Adhahn was arrested for the kidnapping of Zina. However, this speedy apprehension was not enough, on condition of prosecution not seeking the death penalty, Adhahn led investigators to the remains of young Zina Linnik. She had been strangled with a zip tie though Adhahn would claim that her death had been an accident.
Additionally, while living in the Tacoma area, Adhahn was responsible for the care of an unnamed (again for the sake of privacy) 12-year-old girl. Her mother allowed the girl to live with Adhahn since she was unable to provide for her daughter, Adhahn only a “friend of her mother’s boyfriend”. Over the course of the next three years Adhahn would subject the young girl to repeated sexual assault, stopping only when she was able to run away after being assaulted at gun point.
Why Terapon Adhahn? It has been reported that, coupled with his extensive and horrendous history with children, Terapon lived for a time with his aunt in the Fort Worth area around 1996. During the investigation, law enforcement noticed striking similarities in the method of kidnapping, assault, and victims in the Adhahn case and with a few officers having been trained in Texas for the Amber Alert System, were familiar with the Hagerman case. Additionally, he used a similar vehicle in the Fort Lewis incident as was seen in Amber’s abduction. Terapon has been question regarding Amber's abduction and murder though not formally named as a suspect or even a person of interest.
Similar Cases
Heidi Seeman – San Antonio, Texas
On August 4, 1990 11-year-old Heidi Seeman was walking home from a sleep-over at a friend house the previous night. Her unnamed friend walked Heidi a part of the way home, to a midpoint between their houses at the intersection of Stahl road and Willow Run Street. Approaching the intersection Heidi’s friend as well as neighbors in the area reported seeing a red car with dark tinted windows pass by the girls slowly, and the driver watching them intently. Thinking nothing much of it, the girls parted ways and Heidi was never seen again. On August 25th, 1990 her remains were found in Hays County, Texas. No additional details were released regarding her death aside from the fact that a medical examiner ruled her death as a result of homicide.
Erica Botello – San Antonio, Texas
Closer in circumstance to Amber Hagerman, 7-year-old Erica Botello was taken on August 23, 1990 from the playground (or road next to depending on source) near her apartment complex. She was not unsupervised or alone the entire time she was playing. Erica was with her Father however he stepped inside for a brief time. When he went back outside, Erica was gone. Her remains would be found on August 25, 1990 in a storm drain about a mile from her home and abduction site. There is little information regarding Erica’s as she was and is eclipsed by the case of Heidi Seeman, a young white girl just a few years older than Erica, a girl of Hispanic dissent, from a wealthier side of San Antonio to the working class area that the Botello family lived in. Any information found on Erica is usually limited to brief sentences and always in tandem to Heidi.
Legacy and Aftermath
What happened to Amber Hagerman is not a mystery, it is known. She was taken from her family, held and assaulted over the course of two days, killed, and her body was disposed of in a creek not far from her abduction site. Her killer did all of these things without leaving any evidence, and slipped away. What isn't known is who did those things to her? Was it someone she knew? Had that person been watching her? Was this all really the result of chance and opportunity? One can hope that these questions, and more, will be answered one day but with each passing day the possibility that they never will be becomes all the more real.
It has been 24 years since Amber Hagerman was abducted and murdered yet her legacy lives on.
Amber’s abduction and murder was the impetus for the creation for the AMBER Alert System. This is a coordinated effort between law enforcement, radio, television, and cellphone broadcast systems to alert the general public in the region of an abduction to the incident and any information that law enforcement has on the abduction such as their physical description as well as the description of the vehicle they were last seen with. This system has resulted in the safe return of almost 1,000 children in the United States since its inception as a regional program in 1997, then national (and international) in 2000 however it is also under scrutiny for saving so few and being so annoying as an alert results in an alarm blaring through the device that receives it, and for saving so few. Critics question whether it saving just one life is worth it, is saving so few worth it?
I say yes.

2019.10.15 05:13 Carebarehair Who killed Shani Warren?

On the 18th of April 1987 the body of 26 year old Shani Warren was found on the bank of Lake Taplow in Maidenhead, England. Her mouth had been gagged with a blue scarf, her hands were tied together behind her back with jump lead cables, her feet were tied together with rope. She was wearing high heel shoes and was found on the muddy bank of the lake. She had drowned in a foot and a half of water.

The Home Office pathologist, Dr Ben Davies, performed an autopsy and found that she had died of drowning. However, he also discovered that she had been sexually assaulted; she had a strangling mark around her neck, which had probably been made with a car jump-lead; a jump-lead had been used to bind her wrists and ankles; and she was gagged. And yet Dr Davies concluded that she had committed suicide.

At the inquest, Shani’s mother insisted that her daughter was not suicidal, a psychiatrist who had examined her diaries agreed, but Dr Davies – who had earlier been removed from the approved list of Home Office pathologists and then reinstated – insisted that this was a case of suicide. Faced with such a conflict, the coroner recorded an open verdict, and little more effort was made to trace her attacker.

Shani had gone missing the day before. Shani had cut the grass at her home in Stoke Poges, Buckinghamshire, She had placed the grass cuttings into black bin bags, before loading them into the boot of her car - an almost brand new Vauxhall Cavalier. She told her parents she was taking the cuttings around to her uncles. She had also bought some flowers for her boyfriend and a bottle of Champagne to celebrate paying off her new car. That was the last time she was seen alive.

Her car was examined shortly after her death and it was found to have a faulty gear box. This meant it couldn't be driven in either first or second gear - yet her parents testified that it was a brand new car and she had driven away without a problem on the day she went missing.

A knot expert concluded that it would've been impossible for Shani to tie the knots behind her back, especially when using car jump lead cables. However one month later he changed his mind and said it might be possible after all.

The inquest returned an open verdict but the Police treated it like a suicide.

SUSPECTS:

Shani was a secretary for a manager at "Micro scope" - an "intelligent computer systems" manufacturer. Micro scope was taken over by GEC-Marconi four weeks after the date of Shani’s death at a cost of sixteen million pounds. It was the first such acquisition in seven years for GEC-Marconi.

GEC-Marconi was a major, high tech, electronics company, and the UK's only supplier of torpedos. In the 1980's Marconi was working on top secret weapons projects for the British and American Governments, especially the Strategic Defense Initiative (the so called "Star Wars" project). During the 1980's, between 22 and 25 scientists died, some in very suspicious and bizarre circumstances. All the scientists were in some way connected to Guidance missile systems. Nearly all were connected with Marconi, yet nearly all their deaths were ruled suicide or accidental.

The first death occurred in March 1982. Dr Keith Bowden, a senior computer scientist, who had been contracted by Marconi to work on a top secret programme. drove his car across a dual carriageway and plunged off a bridge, down the embankment, into an abandoned rail yard. He died instantly. The police said Dr Bowden was speeding, and the coroner found high levels of alcohol in his system, so it was ruled an accident.
Dr Bowden had attended a social gathering that evening, but everyone there agreed that he hadn't been drinking. His wife and Solicitor hired an accident investigator to examine the wrecked car. He found that someone had swapped the normally pristine tyres on Dr Bowden's Rover and replaced them with a set that were old and almost threadbare.

April 1983, Lt Colonel Anthony Godley, went missing. Godley was head of work study at the Royal College of Military Science. They had a close working relationship with Marconi. Godley has never been found.

Three years later in 1985, Marconi Radar expert and Draughtsman, Roger Hill died from a shotgun blast to the chest - it was ruled suicide.

A few months later, Jonathan Walsh died after falling out of his Ivory Coast hotel balcony window in West Africa. He had been complaining for months that he was being watched and followed, and that his life was in danger. His death was ruled an accident.

One year later in August, Vimal Dajibhai, 24, a computer control systems scientist. Working in Marconi's Stingray torpedo department, Vimal phoned his wife to tell her he would be late home, then he drove to Bristol (135 miles away) and jumped from the Clifton Suspension Bridge. Dajibhai was found with his trousers around his ankles, and a small "needle sized" puncture wound on his left buttock. His death was ruled a suicide although the Coroner did mention his concern about the death. Vimal had handed in his notice to Marconi and only had four days to go before he left. His family and friends say he was looking forward to starting his new job in London.

Six weeks later, Arshad Sharif, 26, another computer scientist who worked on satellite guidance systems at Marconi, also travelled to Bristol, tied one end of a rope to his neck, the other end to a tree, then jammed his foot on the accelerator of his car and decapitated himself. The day before his death, Sharif had been acting oddly and was seen paying for accommodation in a rooming house (popular with Aerospace employees) with a bundle of high denomination bank notes, although none of these notes were found post mortem. A relative summoned to identify the body noticed what appeared to be a metal rod was lying on the floor of the car next to the accelerator. Had it been used to wedge down the pedal? The Bristol Coroner wasn't happy with the coincidence of these latest two deaths, especially when it was discovered both men were working on "Cosmos", an underwater missile, guidance system, but he eventually recorded a verdict of suicide.

A few months later, around Christmastime 1986, Dr John Brittan was lucky enough to escape with only minor harm when his car suddenly and inexplicably, veered across a busy road and he ended up in a ditch. A few weeks later, in January 1987, after returning from a top secret trip to America, Dr Brittan was found dead in the garage at his home. He died from Carbon Monoxide poisoning. His death was ruled suicide.

Two weeks later, the body of Richard Pugh was found at his flat. Pugh was a computer expert for the defence industry but it is not known if he was connected to Marconi. Pugh was found with a plastic bag over his head. A thick rope was coiled around his body, and four times around his neck. His feet were bound together with rope. His death was ruled an accident through sexual misadventure.

At the same time Pugh died, Avtar Singh-Gida, an employee of the British Ministry of Defence, who worked on a number of Marconi's top secret programs, vanished from his home in Loughborough, England. He was feared dead but he was found in Paris' red-light district, fifteen weeks later. He had no memory of where he had been, or what he had done in that period. He returned to work and refuses to discuss what might have happened.

Still in early 1987 (February), Peter Peapell, a Metallurgy expert working for Marconi was found dead in his garage. Like Dr John Brittan, he died from carbon Monoxide poisoning. His wife stated that they had gotten home from a pleasant evening out. Peter went to put the car away and she went to bed. He was found the next morning with his body jammed under the car in an unnatural position. His death was ruled open.

In the same week, Marconi Engineer, David Skeels was found dead in almost exactly the same circumstances - in his garage. He died from Carbon Monoxide poisoning. This time a hose pipe had been affixed to the exhaust. Skeels was sitting in the front seat. His death was ruled a suicide.

A few days later in February 87**, Victor Moore**, another Marconi employee died from a drugs overdose. His death started an investigation by M.I.5 - although it remains classified to this day.

A few weeks later, John Whiteman died by drowning in his bath. His body was surrounded by alcohol and prescription drugs - though none were found in his system.

Less than a month later, in March 1987, David Sands packed his car with containers of petrol and drove very fast into an empty restaurant. He died in the ensuing fireball. He was on his way to work, wearing his seat-belt, when he made the sudden U-turn and drove at speed into the building. Sands worked for Elliott Automation Space and Advanced Military Systems Ltd – a sister company of Marconi. His family and friends all agreed that he was not showing any signs of stress or strain. His death was ruled suicide.

Less than a month later, in April 1987, Stuart Gooding, an employee of the Royal College of Military Science , died when he slammed his car head-on into a truck on the island of Cyprus. Colleagues of Gooding expressed doubt at the accidental death verdict.

On the very same day Stuart Gooding died, David Greenhalgh also died, after falling (or being pushed) off a railway bridge in Berkshire. Greenhalgh just happened to be working on the same program as David Sands. Greenhalgh survived for a few days but had no recollection of why he jumped or if he was pushed.

It is here in the timeline that Shani Warren was found dead. It should be noted that David Greenhalgh and Shani Warren died in the same week. They also lived around the corner from each other.

On the same day as Shani died, George Kountis travelled over 3000 miles to Liverpool, and drove his car into the river Mersey. His sister has always maintained something sinister happened. The Coroner ruled suicide by drowning.

One week later on April 24th, Mark Wisner was found dead in a house he shared with two colleagues. He had several metres of cling film wrapped around his face, and a plastic bag on his head. Wisner Was a Software Engineer for the Ministry of Defence. The Coroner said the death was an accident from sexual misadventure.

One week later on May 3rd 1987, Michael Baker, a Digital communications expert working on a defence project at Plessey, died when his car crashed through a barrier near Poole in Dorset. Plessey are important because the previous year they had been bought by Marconi. The Coroner's verdict was Misadventure.
One month later, in June 1987, Frank Jennings, an Electronic Weapons Engineer with Plessey, was found dead from a heart attack. There was no inquest.
On March 25th,1988, Trevor Knight, a Computer Engineer with Marconi Space and Defence Systems, was found dead at his home in Hertfordshire. He was in the garage, at the wheel of his car with a hosepipe connected to the exhaust. Knight's friend, Miss Narmada Thanki found three suicide notes written by him. Miss Thanki mentioned that Knight disliked his work but she did not detect any depression that would have driven him to suicide. Coroner's verdict: Suicide.
In August 1988, Alistair Beckham, a Software Engineer with Plessey, was found dead after being electrocuted in his garden shed with wires connected to his body and a handkerchief stuffed in his mouth. Apparently after doing some light gardening on a Sunday afternoon, he entered his shed, placed a Handkerchief in his mouth, attached wires to his body then jammed the wires into a power socket. The Coroner recorded an open verdict. His wife refuses to believe he took his own life. Hours after his death, men from the Ministry of Defence turned up at his home and removed files and folders.
In the very same month Beckham died, Peter Ferry, an Assistant Marketing Director with Marconi, was also found dead by electrocution. In his company flat, he stripped some wires, then jammed them into his tooth fillings, before inserting the other end into a plug socket. The Coroner recorded an open verdict.
One month later, in September 1988, Andrew Hall, an Engineering Manager with British Aerospace, was found dead of Carbon monoxide poisoning in a car with a hosepipe connected to the exhaust. I'm unable to determine the location. British Aerospace and Marconi amalgamated to create BAE Systems. Death ruled a suicide.

In late 1991, Malcolm Puddy, who worked for Marconi, told his bosses, in an excited state, that he had "found something amazing". A week later he was pulled out of a canal dead. He had a painter's palette tied around his neck. All of his work computers had been emptied

No doubt much of the above is speculation. Finding out about the Government Defence employees is always extremely difficult, and a lot of misinformation will have been thrown into the mix.

SECOND SUSPECT:
(the following is copied from https://www.nickdavies.net/1999/10/05/getting-away-with-serial-rape-the-story-of-clive-barwell/ )
Clive Barwell.
At about half past two in the afternoon on May 14 1993, a 23-year-old woman from Leicestershire drove her mother’s car into the centre of Nottingham and parked on the ground floor of the concrete multi-storey car park which squats on the edge of the Broadmarsh shopping centre. For a few moments, she sat there, sorting through her handbag.
A man suddenly pulled open the door beside her, clamped his left hand over her mouth, pushed the blade of a knife against her throat and shoved her across the car into the footwell. He threw her coat over her head, threatened to slit her throat and drove off. For a while, he seemed to be intent on theft, rifling through her handbag and pulling her watch and rings off her when he stopped at traffic lights. He asked her if she was religious, and she told him she was a Catholic. “You’d better start praying,” he told her.
After a while, he drove away from the city and turned off down a long gravel path where he raped her, doing his best to cause her pain and to terrify her with his knife. When he had finished, he tied her naked in the footwell of the car, drove to a bank where she told him her PIN number so he could use her credit cards to take her money, and then he stopped again in some rural spot and, while she lay naked and bound in the car, he took the cap off the petrol tank and attempted to set fire to it. He failed and, a little later, he abandoned the car, with the 23-year-old woman crying alone inside it.
This was a strong woman. Despite all that happened to her that afternoon, she has gone on to marry and to rebuild her life, a battle with pain which has been made none the easier by the discovery by detectives last year that the man who assaulted her with such unbridled ferocity was supposed to have been locked up in prison at that very moment, serving a 16-year sentence for armed robbery.
Clive Barwell was eventually arrested for sex attacks after a highly successful inquiry of unprecedented scale, named Operation Lynx and led by the head of Notts CID, DCS Phil Davies. But by the time they arrested him, in March last year, Barwell had been able to spend some 16 years years traveling the country abducting, raping and attempting to murder women, profiting along the way from a series of blunders by detectives who originally dealt with his crimes and, most alarmingly, by the prison service who had been entrusted with locking him up when he was caught for other, non-sexual crimes.
Barwell has become the latest in an unsettling history of notorious cases in which serial sex offenders have left the law looking foolish: the Yorkshire Ripper who killed 13 women while police followed false clues; Denis Nilsen who killed 15 young men before the police even realised a crime had been committed; Operation Orchid which traced the paedophile murder of up to nine young men, only to have most of the cases dropped by the Crown Prosecution Service. The murders of nine prostitutes, some allegedly by the ‘Midlands Ripper’, remain unsolved; and the National Crime Faculty at Bramshill, Hants has been investigating some 200 unsolved murders of women, some of which are also believed to be the work of undetected serial killers.
In retrospect, the problems with Barwell can be traced right back to his first known sex attack, in December 1982, when he drove into the middle of Bradford on a dark and foggy night and waited in a car park on derelict land behind St George’s Hall until he saw a woman alone in a car. It was a symbolic location: Bradford had been a regular hunting ground for Peter Sutcliffe, the Yorkshire Ripper, who had been jailed the previous year, and the West Yorkshire police were still reeling from criticism over their mishandling of the case. Their competence was about to be challenged again.
When the 30-year-old woman, half naked and weeping, went to police later that night and described how a man had forced his way into her car and driven her off and raped her, West Yorkshire detectives checked the local airports, searched the lane where the woman was raped, checked records of cars which had been stolen or abandoned that night and got nowhere. By embarrassing chance, the inspector who dealt with the woman was one Brian Harry Jackson who was later to be sent to prison himself for indecently assaulting young girls.
A month later, on January 3 1983, Barwell was back on their patch. He was visiting his girlfriend, Alwyn, who was in Leeds General Infirmary with appendicitis, but in the car park that night, he forced his way into a 26-year-old woman’s car, drove her off, threatened to shoot her in the back of the head and raped her. When he had finished with her, he gagged her and bound her ankles and wrists with electric cable, pulled a shopping bag over her head and drove her to the banks of the Leeds and Liverpool canal, where he shoved her in. The woman was out of her depth in freezing water which rapidly filled the bag over her head. Barwell stood on the bank and watched her struggling. Kicking out, the woman felt a large stone on the floor of the canal and managed to get her feet onto it and to push her face above the water. She wriggled free from the cable and took the bag from her head. Barwell cursed her from the bank and, in fear, she turned and thrashed through the water to the far bank and safety. Barwell fled in her car, which he abandoned and torched.
West Yorkshire police rapidly realised the two offences were linked and set up an incident room to catch the serial rapist. They re-interviewed the first victim, ran an extensive inquiry, knocked on 14,153 front doors in search of witnesses but got nowhere. Along the way, they made mistakes. Some were small: a Leeds man saw the second woman’s car in flames and got a close look at a man who walked away, but when he went to West Yorkshire police to tell them, he complained he was treated more like a suspect than a helpful member of the public.
Other errors were worse. West Yorks police knew the rapist had used a stolen blue Ford Cortina before and after the abduction of the second victim. They knew, too, that someone had stolen a car in Leeds a week earlier in very similar locations and then gone on a shopping spree with a credit card from that car. If the two incidents were linked, this would yield a harvest of clues: there might be a pattern to the use of the credit card which could indicate the home area of the rapist; possibly he had even used the card in a shop where his name was known. The inquiry sent off for copies of all of the vouchers that had been used in the shopping spree – 20 of them. One of these vouchers proved there was indeed a link: it had been used to buy petrol for the stolen Ford Cortina driven in the second rape. The garage assistant had carefully written the Cortina’s number on the back of the voucher. But the detective who checked the vouchers simply missed the clue and reported that there was no link between the stolen credit card and the rapist. The harvest of clues remained untouched. The officer responsible has since been promoted to superintendent.
With both rapes, West Yorkshire police followed correct procedure in gathering numerous swabs and body hairs and other evidence from the victims and their cars but, when they failed to find their attacker, even though they knew it was highly likely that their serial rapist was still at work, they simply threw out the lot. When Operation Lynx re-opened the two cases, they had no usable scientific evidence to work with. The first woman had produced a photo-fit of her attacker, but West Yorkshire police had lost it.
Barwell continued to enjoy his liberty, living with his wife and two young sons in Leeds, committing armed robberies and stealing cars to order and, from time to time, abducting and raping women. Police are still putting together the full picture of his career. It is known that some 15 months after getting away with his rapes in Bradford and Leeds, he waited in a car park in Leicester until he saw a 20-year-old woman parking. Once again, he abducted her in her own car, drove her away and raped her, using his knife to cut her breasts, belly and neck. Leicestershire Police investigated but soon became embroiled in embarrassment.
This victim was so horrified by her experience that she never told her husband and reported it to the police on condition that they would protect her identity. However, her husband worked occasionally for police in a civilian role and subsequently walked into a CID room to find the intelligence board displaying pictures of his wife as a rape victim, naked to reveal her injuries. When he confronted his wife, she was furious and withdrew her co-operation from the inquiry. In the meantime, a detective inspector had stolen papers dealing with her rape and started visiting her at home, apparently hoping to have sex with her. This inspector, like his predecessor in West Yorkshire, was subsequently jailed for separate indecency.
The Leicestershire police contacted West Yorkshire to point out the similarity between the three attacks but, although they agreed to stay in touch, they set up no joint inquiry and, when they failed to find their man, Leicestershire like West Yorkshire before them gave up the hunt and threw out all of the scientific evidence which they had collected. Barwell carried on raping.
On November 15 1985, he marked the birth of his daughter by attacking a 20-year-old woman who was parking her car in central Doncaster. South Yorkshire police made no link between this and Barwell’s other offences, failed to make any progress with the inquiry and lost or destroyed every single piece of evidence and every single piece of paperwork from the case. When Operation Lynx finally solved the crime, they had to go to the files of the local newspaper to get a contemporary account of the victim’s ordeal.
Barwell was now working as a long-distance lorry driver, using his spare time to referee football matches in the Northern Counties League and also to attack women. His next known attack raised new worries. Shani Warren, aged 26, disappeared on April 17 1987. She had been mowing the lawn at her home in Stoke Poges, Bucks and had apparently set off in her car to dispose of the grass cuttings. She never returned and, the next day, she was found dead, in Taplow Lake, Berks. A Home Office pathologist, Dr Ben Davies, found that she had died of drowning. However, he also discovered that she had been sexually assaulted; she had a strangling mark around her neck, which had been probably been made with a car jump-lead; a jump-lead had been used to bind her wrists and ankles; and she was gagged. And yet Dr Davies concluded that she had committed suicide.
Thames Valley Police tried to start a murder inquiry. When an inquest was held, Shani’s mother insisted that her daughter was not suicidal, a psychiatrist who had examined her diaires agreed, but Dr Davies – who had earlier been removed from the approved list of Home Office pathologists and then reinstated – insisted that this was a case of suicide. Faced with such a conflict, the coroner recorded an open verdict, and little more effort was made to trace her attacker.
Operation Lynx has since established that on the day of Shani Warren’s death, Clive Barwell was driving near her home in Stoke Poges and also near Taplow Lake, which is some 25 miles away. They also noted the similarity between her death and the attempt by Barwell to kill the woman who was thrown into the Leeds and Liverpool canal. But at the time, Barwell once again was allowed to slip away.
Six and a half months later, however, on November 6 1987, Barwell’s career as a sex criminal finally ran into trouble when he was arrested for using a sawn-off shotgun to rob half a dozen security vans and for stealing numerous cars – including 16 from one car park in York in a single day. He was denied bail and when his trial ended, on January 13 1989, he was sent to prison for 16 years as a Category B security prisoner. The police had not begun to suspect that he was a serial rapist but they had at least locked him up where he could do no more harm to women. And yet within three and a half years, he was able to rape again – from within prison.
Barwell behaved like a model prisoner, obeying the rules and taking educational courses; persuading prison officers, governor grades and probation officers that he was trustworthy and reformed. After only two and a half years, he was reduced to Category C and, a year later, on August 24 1992, he was reduced to Category D, the lowest possible security status, and sent to an open prison, in Sudbury, Derbyshire. According to Prison Rules, he was not entitled to go on home leave until he had complete a third of his sentence, in March 1993. In fact, he was immediately allowed to return home on ‘resettlement licence’, which also allowed him to work locally as an electrician. On January 7 1990, he went to Leeds to visit his sick father on a four-day leave and at ten o’clock the next night, he attacked a woman who was leaving her car in Belgrave Street in the city centre.
The woman fought him off. She told police he had grappled her towards her car door, holding a butcher’s knife at her throat and ordering her to get in. She had no doubt he was trying to abduct her and later suffered severe bouts of depression and anxiety, but West Yorkshire police not only failed to find her attacker but recorded the incident as an attempted robbery, apparently an attempt to reduce the level of reported sex crime on their patch. Her car, which had been touched by Barwell, was never examined for prints. Her clothing, which had been torn, was never examined for body hairs. Four months later, Barwell left the prison on a day release to go to work as an electrician, ignored his job, travelled to Nottingham and abducted, raped and attempted to burn to death the 23-year-old woman whom he found in the multi-storey car park there. The Prison Service say there is no trace of his being disciplined for failing to go to work.
Although he was still only five years into his 16-year sentence, Barwell continued to enjoy a life of liberty. On one of his many trips to Leeds, he met a 33-year-old divorcee, Margaret Teasdale. Barwell had divorced his former wife and, on Valentine’s Day 1994, he and Margaret were married in Leeds register officer. The two of them then set up home not far from Sudbury Prison, in the Beresford Arms Hotel, in Ashbourne, where they worked as managers. Barwell – still supposedly a prisoner – regularly slept in the hotel for up to three nights at a time, drew a salary of £10,400 a year, bought a car for himself and, according to Home Office sources, was disciplined for parking in the governor’s reserved space on one of his occasional visits back to the prison. A year later, Margaret was pregnant with his son. The Prison Service now say that they were aware of all his activities, which broke no rules and were explicitly approved as part of his resettlement programme.
Detectives want to question Barwell about a number of unsolved rapes which were committed in the area during his time in Sudbury. On June 19 1995, seven and a half years after his arrest, Barwell was released on parole. Five weeks later, at around midday on July 26, he pounced on a 22-year-old student as she went to get into her car in a multi-storey carpark in the middle of Leeds. He tied her up, smeared superglue over her eyes and drove her off to a remote spot where he started cutting off her clothing. She fought with him and he abandoned the attempt to rape her, leaving her tied up in her car.
West Yorkshire police made more errors. A passer-by who found the victim in her car made notes of what she said, but the police lost them. An ambulance officer also made notes of what she said but destroyed them several months later when police failed to ask for a statement. A detective inspector from Notts contacted them to suggest that the abduction of this student could be linked to the abduction of the 23-year-old woman from the multi-storey car park in Nottingham. West Yorks detectives, in the words of one police source, “told him to fuck off”. However, despite the errors, this time, they also made a breakthrough.
Struggling with his victim, Barwell had cut himself and left a trace of his blood in the car. Searching through her handbag, he had left a finger print on an envelope. In January 1996, forensic scientists in Wetherby matched the DNA in the blood sample from the car in Leeds with the DNA in semen taken from the Nottingham victim. Now, at last, police from the two forces began to work together in what became Operation Lynx. Reviewing the records of unsolved rapes, they made links to the rapist’s behaviour in three of the earlier attacks, one of them in Leicestershire, whose detectives now also joined the inquiry.
They knew their best leads were the blood and the fingerprint they had found. Offender profilers suggested they were likely be dealing with a known sex offender. The pattern of offences suggested he was linked to Leeds. They took saliva samples for DNA comparison from 2,177 suspects – but Barwell had no history of sex offences. They ran the fingerprint through the Automatic Fingerprint Recognition system. Barwell’s prints were in there, but they found no match because the print they were working with was only partial. They decided to order a manual search, a potentially enormous exercise. To narrow the field, they turned once again to offender profilers and hit a new problem. Possibly inspired by the errors of the Yorkshire Ripper inquiry, where the entire hunt had been pushed off course by misleading tapes and letters, Barwell had deliberately left false clues as to his background.
He had spoken in a strong Scottish accent, although his real accent is Yorkshire. He had cursed his wife as ‘a blonde bitch’, although she was dark. He had referred to his Catholicism, when he was brought up a Protestant, and he had crashed car gears and driven erratically, even though he was a professional driver. The immediate result was that detectives asked the fingerprint labs to check through the records of Scottish men with links to Leeds. They found nothing. Then they searched through all men with links to Leeds who had criminal records for stealing cars. There were thousands of them.
While that search ground on, Lynx officers made another appeal on Crimewatch and linked two more rapes and the murder of Shani Warren, bringing South Yorkshire and Thames Valley into the operation. This was now a very big inquiry involving 180 officers from five forces. Apart from the 2,177 suspects whose saliva was tested, a further 9,945 were checked and excluded. Detectives raised 24,324 actions and entered 33,628 names (‘nominals’) on their computer system, more than in any other inquiry in the history of British policing. And on March 19 1998, after 940 hours of sifting manually through more than 7,000 prints, a specialist in Leeds came up with a name: Clive Barwell. He was arrested the next day.
Barwell turned out to be a very ordinary man: father a delivery driver; mother a cleaner and bar woman; the second of five children; truanted and did badly at school; a record of petty crime since he was eleven; good at swimming and running. If there were clues to his disposition, they lay in childhood incidents – father reportedly beating mother in front of the children and recruiting the 12-year-old Clive to keep guard on her, the mother walking out with the children but leaving Clive behind with the father, Clive stealing money from her to punish her and being beaten by her when she found out. He had been married three times, and although he had shown some signs of violence, none of his wives had suspected his true nature.
Now, he starts his life sentence, leaving police once more to review the errors of their ways. While he was waiting for his trial, the woman he tried to burn to death in Nottingham gave birth to a child. She says it marks the end of one chapter and the beginning of a new one in her life.

It doesn't mention in this article but the knot used to tie Shani's hands behind her back, is a knot commonly used by lorry drivers. The area where Shani's car (and close to where her body) was found, is a dead end road, popular with lorry drivers, as a place to park up and sleep. That coupled with the fact he was in the vicinity of Shani's last known location (delivering car parts), are the reasons the police suspect he is the killer.

Railways Reform Bill 2014 - By the Right Honorable peter199
An Act reforming the current railway system replacing the current inefficient, fragmented system of operation. BE IT ENACTED by The Queen's most Excellent Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Commons in this present Parliament assembled, in accordance with the provisions of the Parliament Acts 1911 and 1949, and by the authority of the same, as follows:-
0: Key Organisations
(1) The Department for Transport (DfT) who will provide funds and mange DOR.
(2) Directly Operated Railways (DOR) who will operate the trains and infrastructure (the latter being done by network rail which will be part of DOR)
(3) The Office of Rail Regulation (ORR) who will regulate the railway system scrutinising decisions made by DOR or the DfT.
(4) Passenger Transport Executives (PTEs) and Transport Bodies who will work in partnership with DOR in creating five year plans and a network suited to their local areas.
1: Train Operation
(1) Franchises are to operated by Department for Transport owned Directly Operated Railways (DOR) upon the date their contract ends.
(2) For each DOR operated franchise, DOR and network rail must identify a clear five year plan (ideally covering DORs objectives for each control period) so the railway has a long term future and is able to focus on big projects.
(3) Any profits the DOR network makes are reinvested in partnership with network rail to improve the network.
(4) Passenger operation is to be divided into clear groups which contain sub brands. These groups would be InterCity (sub brands East Coast, West Coast / High Speed, Great Western, Cross Country, East Anglia and Midland) Regional Railways (Western, Anglia, Midlands, Wales, Northern and ScotRail), Network SouthEast (South Western, South Eastern, LTS, Thames Valley, Chiltern, Anglia, Thameslink, South London Metro and North London) and Rail Freight (InterModal and Nuclear)
2: Rolling Stock
(1) Rolling Stock assets which are currently owned by private ROSCOs is to continue to be leased by DOR from them until the end of the rolling stock's lives.
(2) Any new trains should be purchased in partnership with DOR and the DfT or leased off the rolling stock manufacturer.
(3) Rolling stock manufacturers and development companies should be encouraged to base themselves in the UK.
(4) By 2025 all passenger trains in the UK must have bogies or an ORR verified wheel and axle set.
3: Network Rail
(1) Network Rail and DOR merge creating a single entity (still titled DOR) however network rail will remain as the infrastructure sub brand.
(2) Track Access Charges for passenger trains should be scrapped. An emissions charge based on weight load and locomotive should be introduced for freight trains.
(3) The network rail sub brand of DOR should have the key objective to electrify the entire mainline network on the UK mainland with 25kV AC OverHead Line Electrification (OHLE).
(4) Southern region 750 DC third rail should be progressively replaced by modern 25kVAC OHLE in phases identified in the five year plans.
4: Freight
(1) Freight should remain in the private sector however key flows such as nuclear material and former 'Freightliner' trains should be operated by DOR.
(2) The DfT should give Freight Operating Companies (FOCs) incentives to operate more electric freight and use electric locomotives under the wires in place of diesel locomotives.
(3) The DfT should give the freight sector financial incentives to operate more rail freight and less road freight.
(4) The freight sector must work closer with the European market to utilise the Channel Tunnel connection to transport more international freight reducing air miles.
5: Fares
(1) Fares shouldn't rise higher than inflation except unless the extra money is being used to fund improvements such as electrification, re-signalling or new trains. Any rises in fares above inflation must be moderated by the ORR.
(2) Fares should be worked out with local Passenger Transport Executives and Authorities in the five year plans to give the passenger a clear view of what their journey will cost.
(3) A national ITSO based smart card scheme should be implemented to allow a simpler fare structure and easier methods for people to pay.
(4) Money generated by fares should be used for the running and benefit of the railway and nothing else.
6: Commencement, Short Title and Extent
(1) This Act may be cited as the Railway Reform Bill 2014.
(2) This bill shall extend to the United Kingdom
(3) Shall come into force gradually as each rail franchise expires starting from the 01/01/2015
The 5 Year Anniversary Re-reading of this bill shall end at 23:59pm on the 28th May 2019.

Balance Improvements & WIP insight! (Update v.0.8.8.5 – Steam Patch 167)

https://preview.redd.it/zjx1j62nnhn21.jpg?width=620&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=c1ebc5733fe7dbc3bcd2d18022308c93da65e2e1
Hello warriors!
New update just hit the servers! Along with many improvements and fixes, it introduced a new location of the Dimar castle, which is another iteration of the planned world balance changes. Also, you can now drive a catapult with your friend together! There are also new dynamic events to level up more smoothly, tweaks to the siege preparations system and much more – check these changes on your own! Moreover, we’d like to share some details on what we’re working on right now – read below for details.
See you in battle!
Work in Progress:
We’re currently working on another expansion of the siege engines system – movable battering rams! Today’s update adds a new mechanic allowing multiple players to move a catapult together, which was an important step towards the introduction of battering rams. We hope to see them in-game next week!
We’re also coming closer to finish a significant update to the crafting content and available equipment. We’re filling the gaps to finally complete full sets of medium and heavy armors. They will also be standardized, which will help us improve the game balance and expand available content.
Moreover, we’re preparing to start working on the new, Sangmar-themed world event which will mirror both Bragi and Brandon events. It’s in the early design phase now – if you have your ideas for this event, it’s a perfect time to share your suggestions with us!
And the last but not least – something for the roleplayers. Dice and sitting on benches and chairs can be expected to come next week!

Changelog v.0.8.8.5
Territory Control update:
It’s the 2nd iteration of the recently announced planned world balance improvements. Last week we updated the position of Haddah Castle, now we moved Dimar Castle along with its’ farm and lumbermill. Both castles have been moved to new locations in order to solve the problem of new players joining the Sangmar nation feeling “outplayed”, because even in case of a complete balance on the map, the Sangmar’s native territory was visually smaller than the other nations. Second, although the actual travel distance to Haddah Caste from the capital city was comparable to other nations’ castles, they appeared to be placed closer because of their flags’ position, causing concerns about the world PVP balance.
Also, in response to the Community’s feedback, we made several balance improvements to the recently introduced siege preparations, which are required to compete over a guild province. With these changes, the preparations will be more dynamic, at the same time being less tedious and not as much expensive for the weapons durability. In the end, a group of 5 players should now be able to complete the preparations in a reasonable time.
– Updated position of Dimar Castle, Dimar Farm and Dimar Lumbermill
– Moved the siege camp at Scarsdale to the East, placing it in between of Dimar Castle and Scarsdale
– Moved the siege camp West to the Dimar Castle to a new position due to the castle’s position update
– Updated nearby lands due to the Dimar Castle’s position update
– Reduced the Guards Commander’s HP and respawn time down to 30%
– Increased the Guards Commander’s damage
– Reduced the number of points gained for killing the Guards Commander in the siege preparations down to 50%
– Moved the Guard Commander in Skergard Castle to a new place behind the outer palisade, at the road near a farm

https://preview.redd.it/lyqffkjqnhn21.jpg?width=851&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=5fd7bf7a125551aafebee77ba6da0f1b9a51083a
Quality of Life:
– Introduced a new method of saving the streamed objects (models, water etc), which greatly reduces the size of client-side updates – although this specific update is quite large, the future ones will be much smaller; this change also greatly improves performance on slower HDDs, eliminating most of the “stuttering”, and reduces the time required to build a client-side update, so from now on, we will be able to react faster to potential issues
– Server-side optimization improvements
– From now on catapults can be steered by 2 players at the same time basing on their movement input – only the first player can shoot and load the catapult, also if there’s only one player driving the catapult, its’ movement speed is reduced down to 50%
– Added visual indicator of the currently selected attack/block direction – it’s disabled by default and can be enabled in the game options
– Added possibility to disable receiving the other nation players’ private messages (/whisper) and displaying messages in the “Say” channel – it’s disabled by default and can be enabled in the game options; this change was made to help avoid the other players’ toxic behavior
– Improved smoothing the player’s position when falling down
– Updated 28 dynamic events in various places in the world – their level ranges were too low, so many players have never had a chance to see them after completing the starting quests
– Added new dynamic events for Midlanders and Sangmarians (14 per nation) taking place and minor flags between capital cities of each nation – farms, mines and lumbermills – to mirror the events added for Ismirs last week
– Re-equipped the Midlandic and Ismirean City Guard Veterans, giving them shields like Sangmarian ones, so now they will be equally strong
– Added missing Salt nodes to the Ulfgard Mine’s resources
– Added displaying the party leader’s marker at the leader’s simplified nametag
– From now on, the character’s name validation also checks the lower and upper cases, so it won’t be possible to impersonate another player anymore
– Minor improvements to the character creation interface
– From now on, after joining a guild using the guild recruitment board, the guild window will open to confirm that a player joined the guild successfully
– Improved interacting with quest objects: barley, wheat, flax, hop, hemp, tents and cages
– Minor improvements to the starting Ismirean quests
– Improved dialogs of Himerius and Justus in the Sangmarian starting quests
– Minor improvements in the Sangmarian starting quests
– Improved interface of the Feedback window and expanded the max amount of characters
– Improvements to the player memorial interface

Fixes:
– Fixed a recent issue causing that some players couldn’t see the items which they put for sale in the Market
– Fixed an issue causing that after purchasing only a part of a stack of the given item in the Market, the remaining amount wasn’t refreshed
– Fixed an issue with looting other players causing that stackable items weren’t refreshed properly after being looted, unless such an item was already in the looting player’s inventory
– Fixed a visual bug with looting other players causing that, if a player looted an enemy after looting in the same session another player, who had more bags in the inventory than the current target, icons of the “extra” bags would be displayed in the current target’s inventory but with no content
– Fixed a visual bug with looting other players causing that, if a player looted an enemy after looting in the same session another player, who had more bags in the inventory than the current target, with the last bag open when the timer ended, looting the current target would start in the same bag slot where the previous one ended, with no content
– Fixed an issue causing that the siege preparations would remain after the server restart if they were cancelled or the server’s prime time ended
– Fixed displaying the date of triggered State of War in the combat log after completing the siege preparations
– Fixed an issue causing that in some cases logging in to the server by the “guest” players wasn’t enabled when their nation was detected as a dominating one in the selected server
– Fixed an issue causing that quests and dynamic events were disappearing from the map and minimap if the player gained new level in their area
– Fixed an issue causing that buffs for gaining the 1st and 2nd place in the Deadly Harvest world event disappeared after relogging or server restart – from now on, they should remain until the next Deadly Harvest event starts on the same server
– Fixed assigning player titles related to crafting to characters which met their requirements when these titles were bugged or haven’t been implemented yet
– Fixed translations of interactive plants objects in quests
– Fixed an issue causing that a player couldn’t proceed the Sangmarian starting quest if the gate in the convicts camp was destroyed and had to wait for its’ respawn

2018.10.10 01:16 October_Citrus Weather Event: Major Hurricane Michael

As cordcutters, with our on-demand watching habits and less frequent reliance on live TV, it can be easy to lose track of weather events. We strongly encourage you to pay extra attention during hurricane season (June 1st-November 30th) to the weather forecasts, advisories, and other important notices regarding road closures and evacuations.
Please add any additional recommendations for live news and weather in the comments.
If you find any links that are broken or stop working, please notify moderators immediately. Thank you.
National Hurricane Center
Mobile Version
Tropical Tidbits
Reddit:
/TropicalWeather (Tracking information, preparation information, and live threads available.)
/weather
Both of these subs do an excellent job of providing current and accurate information. However, as /TropicalWeather has noted, be careful about relying on live streams of videos on various social media sites. There have been many reports of videos of old hurricanes being presented as new live streaming videos of a current hurricane.
Live Coverage and Live Updates
Antenna: Advance local coverage of weather, local and national news. Note that if you are in the path of the hurricane, expect to lose coverage.
Radio: A portable weather radio that is multi-power is highly recommended. Unlike cell phones, it's likely to last longer on its batteries. Cellular service can go down easily in storms as well. Kaito and Buwico are good examples of multi-functional and multi-power radios.
NOAA NWR Weather Radio by Midland
NOAA National Weather Radio Nationwide Station Listing Using Broadcast Frequencies
NewsON: This local news app is available on Roku and mobile devices. This will provide you with live and on demand newscasts from your local affiliates such as ABC, Fox etc.
Also see NewsON Weather News page. During previous hurricanes, NewsON stated that "Many of our stations also have extended coverage of the storm and we are featuring their live coverage on our website as well as in our app and on our Roku channel." See the NewsON blog and the NewsON Michael Page for more info and links to the NewsON affiliates in the affected areas with live coverage.
Your local broadcast affiliate: Look for its website, mobile weather app, mobile affiliate app, social media page, YouTube channel, or Twitter account for its updates. Turn on notifications.
(Note: If you do not live in the affected areas but wish to keep updated, try using an alternate app that will have less traffic such the Roku or mobile apps for an affiliate that is well north of the affected areas but which have live streams from their sister affiliates from southern states. During prior storms, we saw some popular live streams from some broadcasters or weather apps being overwhelmed by demand.)
Your state's official website: look for official emergency notices and updates. May have social media accounts too.
CBS All Access: if local live broadcast are available in your area, get live local newscasts and national news from your local CBS affiliate. Also available on mobile devices, so be sure to login to get live broadcasts on your phone. Go here for the Google Play App. For iPhone, Use the "CBS" App.
WeatherNation. The WeatherNation app includes a streaming video broadcasts, and has national and local coverage. Available on Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV, Android TV, Android mobile devices, iPhone/iPad, Kindle Fire Tablet, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4, and smart tvs. See complete app list here.
The Weather Network can be viewed via the PlutoTV app on channel 138 on Roku.
AccuWeather: This weather app has video reports but may not be live. Local weather and national reports. Apple TV, Android Mobile, iPhone/iPad, and Windows 8.1/10/mobile.
Weather Channel: Weather Channel is available on DirecTV Now and FuboTV. Neither live streaming service appears to have TVE login credentials for the Weather Channel however. For those who don't have DirecTV Now or FuboTV, you can visit its website or its Twitter page for updates. You can find updates and turn on notifications in its apps. See this page for its apps. In some cases, the Weather Channel will provide live streams on its website or apps without TVE login credentials from cable tv providers.
Weather Channel Hurricane Tracker Page: If you are looking for tracking and data, go to this page for tracking info for current hurricanes.
Live Streaming Services: If you have Sling TV, PS Vue, Hulu with Live TV, DirecTV Now, FuboTV, or YouTube TV, look for weather and news coverage on your local broadcast affiliates, CNN, Newsy, Local Now, CNBC, CNN, Fox News Channel, MSNBC, or other news channels.
Note that in most cases, live streaming services require you to be logged into your home network so if you lose access to that or have to evacuate, you should have alternate news sources such as the apps listed above or TVE apps installed on your phone, tablet or other device. Again, a portable radio is also recommended as an alternate news source.
National broadcast apps/websites: CBS News and ABC News have 24/7 live news streams on many streaming devices. Check websites for all broadcasters for a livestream. Broadcasters and their local affiliates also have mobile apps and have social media pages as well.
Official YouTube news channels: See this page for a list of official YouTube news channels.
Other weather apps: Check our News Guide for additional weather apps.

Hurricane Michael
Latest News:
  • Michael reaches Category 3 strength as it continues northward. A combination of satellite imagery analysis and aerial reconnaissance data continue to show that Hurricane Michael is strengthening and becoming more organized as it moves toward the north-northwest across the eastern Gulf of Mexico. Infrared imagery and upper-level analysis have shown that westerly vertical wind shear has begun to decrease, though it is still having some effect on the cyclone's structure. Over the past several hours, a dense ring of deep convection has begun to wrap around the western periphery of the now visible eye. Water vapor imagery indicates that the cyclone's upper-level outflow has become more expansive, but is strongest across the northern and eastern sides of the circulation. Intensity estimates derived from aerial reconnaissance data collected by NOAA and U.S. Air Force Reserve missions indicate that Michael's maximum sustained winds have increased to 95 knots (110 miles per hour), falling just short of Category 3 strength.
  • Michael will peak at Category 3 strength before landfall. Hurricane Michael is currently moving through an improving atmospheric and oceanic environment characterized by gradually decreasing vertical wind shear (10 to 15 knots), a deep pool of warm sea waters (28.5 to 29.5ºC), moderate mid-level moisture (65 to 70% relative humidity), and strong upper-level diffluence introduced by the presence of a deep-layer trough to the west. As vertical wind shear continues to gradually decrease over the next day or so, Michael is expected to continue to strengthen, reaching a peak of 110 knots (125 miles per hour) by tomorrow morning, falling just short of Category 4 strength.
  • Model guidance continues to be in close agreement for Michael's track. Hurricane Michael continues to move toward the north-northwest at 10 knots. The cyclone is situated between two deep-layer large-scale features—a deep-layer mid-latitude trough situated to the west and a deep-layer ridge situated to the east. These two features will work together to steer Michael toward the north over the next several hours but as the deep-layer trough to the west continues to push eastward, it will nudge Michael onto a more north-northeastward track through landfall along the Florida Panhandle on Wednesday afternoon and then on an increasingly northeastward track as the cyclone moves over the southeastern United States on Wednesday and Thursday.
Expected Impacts:
Hurricane Michael is forecast to be the strongest hurricane to make landfall along the Florida Panhandle since Hurricane Dennis in 2005. The cyclone is expected to bring a multitude of damaging and life-threatening impacts to the region, including wind, rainfall, storm surge, and surf. It is extremely important that residents in the affected areas take the necessary precautions as soon as possible and heed the advice of local officials.
STORM SURGE: Storm surge is an oft-ignored, yet extremely dangerous impact that hurricanes can have along coastlines. A combination of storm surge and the tide will cause sea levels to rise along the coastline and will push large amounts of water inland. Storm surge watches and warnings are currently in effect along the Florida Panhandle and the western coastline of the Florida Peninsula. Storm surge forecasts range anywhere from 2 to 4 feet along the outer fringes of this advisory area to as high as 8 to 12 feet between Indian Pass and Cedar Key, Florida.
RAINFALL: Heavy rainfall associated with Hurricane Michael will bring the potential for life-threatening flash-flooding to inland areas not already affected by heavy surf and significant storm surge. Western Cuba is expected to see 4 to 8 inches of rainfall total, with some isolated areas seeing as much as 12 inches. By Tuesday, heavy rainfall will extend up the western coastline of the Florida Peninsula and then along the Gulf Coast from Mississippi to Florida on Wednesday. Areas along the western coastline of the Florida Peninsula and the Florida Keys could see as much as 2 to 4 inches with isolated maxima of 6 inches. Areas across southeastern Alabama, Georgia, the Florida Panhandle, and South Carolina are expected to see up to 4 to 8 inches of rainfall, with isolated maxima of 12 inches.
WINDS: It goes without saying that a major hurricane will bring significant wind impacts to the affected areas. Tropical storm conditions are expected to continue over the Cuban province of Isle of Youth for the next several hours. As Michael heads north, areas along the western coastline of the Florida Peninsula could see some tropical storm conditions as early as Tuesday evening. Tropical storm conditions will spread to the Gulf Coast extending from the LA/MS border to the western coastline of the Florida Peninsula overnight on Tuesday. Hurricane conditions are expected to continue for the western Cuba province of Pinar del Rio throughout the day on Tuesday and will extend to the Florida Panhandle (from the AL/FL border to the Suwannee River) on Wednesday morning. These strong winds will make it exceedingly difficult to complete preparations for the storm.
SURF: Hurricane Michael is already producing large swells that have been affecting the southern coastline of Cuba and the eastern coastline of the Yucatan Peninsula for the past couple of days. These impacts will spread to the Gulf Coast of Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida over the next couple of days. Life-threatening surf and rip current conditions are expected and damaging waves could create significant impacts to life and property along the immediately coastline.

Most Pressing Weather Event:
Hurricane Florence
Latest News:
  • Hurricane-strength winds batter the North Carolina coastline. A combination of satellite and radar data indicate that convection along the eastern side of Florence's eye has become discontinuous as the cyclone approaches the coast. The cyclone continues to maintain a larger secondary ring of maximum-level winds around its eye and hurricane-force winds are already being observed along the North Carolina coast. Intensity estimates derived from satellite and radar data indicate that the cyclone's maximum sustained winds have decreased to 80 knots (90 miles per hour), though surface observations are indicating that Florence is producing wind gusts that are higher than average for a hurricane of this intensity.
  • While Florence is getting weaker, its hurricane wind field has expanded to approximately 130 miles across and its tropical storm wind field has expanded to 600 miles across. As the wind field continues to expand, so expands the area vulnerable to damaging winds and dangerous storm surge. In addition to this, Florence remains a large hurricane that is expected to produce wind, rainfall, and storm surge impacts across a much larger area before and after it makes landfall.
  • Florence will begin to weaken once it makes landfall. Because Florence's center remains over warm waters, it's not too likely that the cyclone will experience much more weakening before it finally makes landfall on Friday afternoon. Though, even after the cyclone makes landfall and begins to move inland, only a gradual weakening trend is expected through Saturday morning as the cyclone's large circulation remains over water. It won't be until Saturday night that Florence finally weakens to tropical storm strength as prolonged land interaction continues to erode the cyclone's strength. Florence is expected to weaken even further to tropical depression strength by Sunday evening.
  • Florence will move slowly over the Carolinas this weekend. Florence has slowed down considerably over the past day and has begun to make its anticipated turn toward the southwest along the leading edge of a building ridge over the Tennessee Valley. Florence is expected to move very slowly toward the southwest along the coastal regions of North and South Carolina through the weekend. By Sunday night, Florence will reach the western periphery of the ridge and will begin a sharp u-turn over western North Carolina and begin to swiftly move toward the northeast over the Ohio River Valley and New England toward Monday and Tuesday.
Expected Impacts:
Florence remains a large and dangerous storm despite weakening. Residents along the coast need to realize that although Florence has weakened to Category 1 hurricane strength, it remains a large and dangerous hurricane that will cause significant impacts across the Carolinas over the next few days. Some focus needs to be taken away from the storm's maximum winds and instead turned upon the more dangerous aspects of the cyclone--storm surge and exceptionally heavy rainfall. Florence's large size and slow movement means that a much larger area is exposed to persistent heavy rainfall over the weekend and the cyclone's expanding wind field means that a larger area along the coastline is vulnerable to damaging storm surge.
STORM SURGE: Storm surge is expected to be a significant impact from Hurricane Florence. A combination of storm surge and the timing of high tide will cause significant coastal inundation that will spread inland, particularly in the areas exposed to the greatest onshore winds. Along the North Carolina coastline between Cape Fear and Cape Lookout, storm surge could result in rising waters totalling 7 to 11 feet with locally higher amounts along the rivers between these points. Flooding caused by storm surge can vary greatly over very short distances.
RAINFALL: Because Florence is expected to meander along the coastline for several days, an exceptionally heavy rainfall event is expected to take place. Along the coast of southeastern North Carolina and northeastern South Carolina, rainfall totals could reach 20 to 30 inches, with isolated areas seeing as much as 40 inches. Such a large amount of rainfall over such a short amount of time is expected to cause catastrophic flooding. Areas across the rest of the Carolinas and southwestern Virginia are expected to see totals of 6 to 12 inches with some isolated areas seeing up to 15 inches of rainfall.
WINDS: Though Florence's maximum sustained winds have decreased to 80 knots (90 miles per hour), the tropical storm and hurricane-force wind fields have expanded, leaving larger areas exposed to damaging wind impacts as Florence makes its way on shore and gradually weakens.
TORNADOES: Tornadoes are possible within rainbands moving across eastern and southeastern North Carolina through Friday.

Lesser Weather Events:
Tropical Depression Isaac
At 500 AM AST (0900 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression Isaac was located near latitude 15.0 North, longitude 65.5 West. The depression is moving toward the west near 15 mph (24 km/h), and this general motion with some decrease in forward speed is expected over the next few days. On the forecast track, Isaac will move over the eastern and central Caribbean Sea during the next few days.
Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts. Isaac is forecast to gradually weaken over the next few days, and could degenerate into a tropical wave at anytime. The estimated minimum central pressure is 1006 mb (29.71 inches).
HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
RAINFALL: Isaac is expected to produce additional rainfall of 2 to 3 inches with isolated amounts up to 5 inches across the northern Windward Islands into the Leeward islands, and southeastern Puerto Rico. Totals of 1 to 2 inches with maximum amounts of 3 inches are possible across the remainder of Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Dominican Republic and Haiti. This rainfall may cause life-threatening flash flooding.

The Economist: The World in 2015 Cover & Serco

Everyone needs to keep in mind at all times that the symbol of the Illuminati is the PHOENIX. It's colors are Purple, Red and Gold. It is associated with and the Sun. It represents immortality through death and rebirth. Dragons, Eagles and Falcons will sometimes be used as alternative symbols to represent the Phoenix to try and hide it.

https://preview.redd.it/4s4o8774xvh11.jpg?width=2895&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=866093bca484208906668bee95a5a258e79b7d8e

Anything bolded in brackets is my own added commentary. [EXAMPLE]
The Economist 2015 Cover is Filled With Cryptic Symbols and Dire Predictions
January 8, 2015I wouldn’t normally dedicate an entire article analyzing the cover of a publication, but this isn’t any publication. It is The Economist and it is directly related to the world elite. It is partly owned by the Rothschild banking family of England and its editor-in-chief, John Micklethwait, attended several times to the Bilderberg Conference – the secretive meeting where the world’s most powerful figures from the world of politics, finance business, and media discuss global policies. The outcome of those meetings is totally secret. It is, therefore, safe to say that the people at The Economist know things that most people don’t. For this reason, its “2015 prediction” cover is rather puzzling.The bleak and sinister cover features political figures, fictional characters and pop culture icons that will surely make the news in 2015. However, most importantly, it also includes several drawings that are extremely symbolic and allude to important elements of the elite’s Agenda. Here’s the cover :At first glance, we see political figures like Obama and Putin, references to the Rugby cup and the new Spider-Man movie. But a closer look reveals a plethora of disturbing elements. Here are some of them.

Two-Faced Globe



https://preview.redd.it/49a37he7xvh11.jpg?width=500&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=bab9a98a05f43970c512fcc04b2ec9c7e83f049c
[Just like the Double Headed Phoenix of Russia, Trump's and the Scottish Rite Freemason's Coat of Arms]
One side of the globe gazes stoically towards the West while the other side appears irate. Does this represent a confrontation between the East and the West? The cover features a few other symbols referring to the “rise of the East”. What’s more unsettling is that immediately under that angry globe, are pictured a mushroom cloud (the kind that happens after a nuclear bomb goes off) and a spy satellite launching into space.


https://preview.redd.it/kt5ce4xkxvh11.jpg?width=555&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=e4aeb82a012ae773ae86019b24edfd1a4b3ad64e
[The NASA spy satellite could represent Trump's Space Force. We're going to drop a nuke on North Korea or Iran]

The Color of the Faces


Take a closer look at the faces of the personalities featured on the cover. Some of them are in full color while others are in black and white. Why is that?

https://preview.redd.it/b0h9ae4oxvh11.jpg?width=600&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=87ea53dda40f20ffb4211cc1806bb085921e4dcf
Among those in black in white are Putin, Merkel, Obama, Hilary Clinton and David Cameron. Among those in color are David Blaine, a young person holding a “Singapore” banner (Singapore is the host of the 2015 SEA games) and a random guy wearing virtual reality equipment. A quick compilation of this data reveals that those in black and white appear to be part of the elite (including the ISIS guy who probably works for them) and those in color are “outsiders”. Is this how the elite perceives the world?

Pied Piper


https://preview.redd.it/jqmnv58qxvh11.jpg?width=127&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=7b27a9b759f56f77902bb851df49c0f78cf52330
The presence of the Pied Piper on this 2015-themed cover is downright unsettling. The Pied Piper of Hamelin is a German legend about a man who used his magical flute to lure away the children of the city of Hamelin, never to be seen again.


The Pied Piper leads the children out of Hamelin. Illustration from Robert Browning’s “The Pied Piper of Hamelin”

This folkloric figure dating from the Middle-Ages is said to represent either massive death by plague or catastrophe, or a movement of massive immigration. It also perfectly represents today’s youth being “lured” and mystified by the “music” of mass media. Conveniently enough, there’s a small boy right under Piper’s flute.

[Pied Piper is obviously Trump/Putin/Qanon. Leading people into their deaths as well as the child separation thing at the border]

Clueless Boy

https://preview.redd.it/xzuhn795zvh11.jpg?width=554&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=58b181b1946ca12b2d1c0bbc082b8da594fc9abb
Right under the Pied Piper, we see a young boy with a dumbfounded look on his face. He is watching a game called “Panic”. The words “Federal Reserve” and “Chi” (which probably stands for China) are on top while the words “Green light!” and “sis!” (which probably stands for “Isis!” or “Crisis!”) are at the bottom. The little boy watches as this twisted game of Plinko unfolds the same way the clueless masses watch powerlessly while various events unfold on mass media. As the name of the game states, the ultimate goal is to cause Panic around the world as crises are almost randomly generated by those who control the game. And that’s on a magazine cover owned by the Rothschilds.
[Trump is poised to try and take over the Federal Reserve and China could dump our bonds just like Russia is doing while his supporters look on like the "Clueless Boy"]

Crop-O-Dust

https://vigilantcitizen.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Untitled-1.jpg
In front of Putin is a small aircraft on which is written Crop-O-Dust. This refers to the concept of crop dusting which is “the process of spraying crops with powdered insecticides or fungicides from an aircraft.” Right under the helicopter is a kid … eating something. Unsettling.

https://preview.redd.it/qjo1dxwczvh11.jpg?width=268&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=c614bda88ed55834c3050023a9a461ae3e2684fe
Sitting right under the crop-o-dust, this kid is eating a heavily processed package of noodles. Is he ingesting the poison that was spread by the aircraft?

China

https://preview.redd.it/69vnylkgzvh11.jpg?width=400&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=4396d8f378b1ec7d259c1e3d6b9ccbe962cefa05
A panda bear wearing a China-flag Speedo while flexing its muscles is a rather clear way of portraying the fact that China is gaining power. Next to it is a sumo wrestler holding a big battery on which the polarities (+ and -) are clearly indicated. Are they alluding to a switch in polarity in world power from the West to the East?
[This is definitely happening right now]

Ghost

https://preview.redd.it/ybd3ztbkzvh11.jpg?width=224&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=407052a267ae1e6e31c99c2b0e58907b3ea09299
Emerging from behind Obama’s leg is a ghost reading a magazine entitled “Holiday”. Why is this ghost, which represents a dead person, planning a vacation? Does it represent the fact that the masses will be so impoverished that the only time they’ll be on a holiday is when they’re dead? Does it relate to the countless people who died while traveling in the past months? Creepy.

Turtle

https://preview.redd.it/2id6q9utzvh11.jpg?width=427&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=55abec9cebbc022ddbc5e1ec1a487d28a8c9bb56
Standing in front of everything else, gazing right into our souls is a turtle with emphasis lines around its shell. What does it represent? Will turtles make a huge comeback in 2015? Probably not.
An angry tortoise is the symbol of the Fabian Society, an extremely powerful organization that has been working for over a century towards to formation of a single world government.

The motto of the Fabian Society is “When I strike, I strike hard”.
The philosophy behind Fabian socialism is basically the blueprint of what we call today the New World Order.
The Fabian Society is a very old group originating in England in 1884, with the purpose of forming a single, global socialist state. They get their name from the Roman general Fabius, who used carefully planned strategies to slowly wear down his enemies over a long period of time to obtain victory. “Fabian Socialism” uses incremental change over a long period of time to slowly transform a state as opposed to using violent revolution for change. It is essentially socialism by stealth. Their original emblem was a shield with a wolf in sheep’s clothing holding a flag with the letters F.S. Today the international symbol of the Fabian Society is a turtle, with the motto below: “When I strike, I strike hard.” – The Fabian Society, The Weather Eye
The Fabian Society used to openly advocate a scientifically planned society and supported eugenics by way of sterilization. Its original logo was a wolf in sheep’s clothing … But I guess that was not the best way to conceal the wolf from the masses.

The original logo of the Fabian Society was a wolf in sheep's clothing.
Bringing forth a global system through small incremental changes is exactly what the world elite is currently doing. This is probably why there’s an angry tortoise on the cover of this Bilderberg-connected publication – standing in front of the chaos behind it.

11.3 and 11.5

https://preview.redd.it/acin6opf0wh11.jpg?width=500&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=d94a59aca854319919e91085fa096e71e73d9731
The lower right side of the cover features some more cryptic symbols. There’s a pile of dirt on the ground and two arrows on which are inscribed 11.5 and 11.3. Are those dates to remember? Why are they next to a pile of dirt? If you look up these figures as coordinates, they point to somewhere in Nigeria. Displaying numbers that can only be truly understood by “those in the know” is one of the occult elite’s favorite hobbies.
Standing in front of the dirt is Alice in Wonderland looking upwards towards the Cheshire Cat.

https://preview.redd.it/qv7apton0wh11.jpg?width=412&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=3c78dc7c5844f8e1eea60a0d8e73558789840480
This iconic cat is known for disappearing entirely, leaving only visible its creepy grin. We, therefore, see another allusion to a world of fantasy, illusion, and deceit as perceived by Alice – a representative of the masses. Along with the somewhat unnecessary inclusion of David Blaine – a magician – the cover mixes real-world events with illusions.Other notable symbols on this cover include a piggy bank flying from James Cameron’s pockets; A model wearing an Alexander McQueen creation (the elite’s favorite designer who died in strange circumstances) and an Asian officer wearing a facemask to protect him from a deadly disease.
2015 seems great, doesn’t it?
In Conclusion
The Economist is not a random newspaper that publishes quirky 2015 predictions to sell a few additional copies. It is directly connected to those who shape global policies and who make sure that they are applied. The publication is partly owned by the Rothschild banking family of England and its editor regularly attends Bilderberg meetings. In other words, The Economist is connected to those who have the means and the power to make “predictions” a reality.The 2015-themed cover basically reflects the overall Agenda of the elite and is peppered with cryptic symbols that appear to be included for “those in the know”. And the masses, like Alice watching the Cheshire Cat disappear, will focus on illusions while the wolf in sheep’s clothing will strike … and strike hard.
Keep in mind that this was posted in January of 2015, 3 and a half years ago, and almost all of it is happening right now.
Some things the author of the article couldn't have known, you notice how Obama is wearing a deep blue suit with a red tie? When has he ever worn that? But you know who does?

PM Modi Pitches For Usage Of AI and Blockchain In Agriculture
“India’s youth can lead a revolutionary movement using AI and blockchain technologies with a value addition,” PM Narendra Modi said during a convocation ceremony held recently at Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology, Jammu.
“With blockchain technology, this problem can also be controlled. Through a real-time monitoring of the supply chain, the technology can bring in transparency in the agricultural trade — starting from the production process to making it available for the farmers as products can be examined at every stage.”
“This will have a complete network comprising farmers, processing units, regulatory authorities and consumers. Because one affiliated to this chain can keep an eye on this, therefore, the scope of corruption will also be reduced. Most importantly, this will check the mischievous acts of the middlemen and the harvest will not go wasted,” PM Modi said.
G20 Countries Eye For Cryptocurrency AML Regulation Standards By October 2018
After the G20 watchdog the Financial Stability Board (FSB) recently submitted its report to the G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors on the work of the FSB and standard-setting bodies on crypto-assets, the G20 nations now plan to bring in the cryptocurrency market under the purview
of international AML standards, said an official statement released during a meeting in Buenos Aires recently.The G20 forum, in which India is a prominent member, plans to apply the anti-money laundering (AML) regulatory standards for the cryptocurrency sector by October this year.For its part, the FSB has already developed a framework in collaboration with the Committee on Payments and Market Infrastructures (CPMI), to monitor the financial stability implications of developments in crypto-asset markets. The report published recently sets out the metrics that the FSB will use to monitor crypto-asset markets as part of its ongoing assessment of vulnerabilities in the financial system.As per the statement, members agreed to the implementation of the FATF standards and have asked the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) – an international body of 37 nations – to clarify in October 2019 how its standards apply to crypto-assets.Iran Turns To Cryptocurrency Post The US SanctionsAs the US President Donald Trump recently took a U-turn from the multi-nation Iran-US-EU nuclear deal and announced fresh Iran-related sanctions which might curb Iran’s oil business, Iran is reportedly working on its cryptocurrency to bypass the new economic sanctions posed by the US.Iran government’s official news channel PressTV reported quoting the department’s deputy head in charge of investment affairs Alireza Daliri that a fiat cryptocurrency development project is ongoing in cooperation with the Central Bank of Iran.“We are trying to prepare the grounds to use a domestic digital currency in the country,” stated Daliri.

Putin has sunglasses on as a way to hide from something I think and he and Obama/Trump both have red ties on symbolizing unity I'm thinking.
Does anyone know who the two guys looking over Obama's shoulders are? That seems significant but I don't know who they are.
See the drawing of a Chinese man hiding behind the Singapore banner? The North Korea situation anyone? Especially with David Blaine right in front of it.
It looks like Hillary and Putin are looking at each other and that's why Putin has sun glasses on. Putin has sort of a sly smirk on his face and Hillary's is pretty expressive. I think they all wanted Trump to get elected. Even in those DNC hacked emails they said their strategy was to make Trump the guy they ran against. Even referred to him as a "Pied Piper Candidate". Which is why Obama told everyone to stand down when they realized that Russia was hacking us.
https://images.firstpost.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/pied-piper.jpg
The Pied Piper is right next to Putin for a reason and the fish coming from behind his legs? Those are Christians. Jesus told his disciples to be fishers of men.
The leader of China seems to be pretty aligned with Obama/Trump. Which makes sense because the infamous Steele Dossier says that Trump and his team didn't care much about the Russia stuff because then people won't be looking into his other business dealings like those with China.
The fact that the Cheshire cat and the Ghost looking at a vacation magazine are coming from behind Obama/Trump is really interesting and just shows that it's all just an illusion. Not sure what the ghost represents. Maybe the Holy Ghost?
Then there's a big vehicle right behind India and China's legs (mostly India's). I wonder if that means they'll be taken out somehow.
What looks like 2 Islamic terrorists, one in the back holding up an AK and one on the left looking through some binoculars to the west, seem to be reminding us that they're still here, watching us, waiting to strike. Are they waiting for the "green light" that is under the Planco Panic game? I wonder if the conspiracy theory about the White Helmets is true and the real reason they got evacuated so quickly from Syria by Israel and other allied nations was so they could be relocated to where they need to be when the power gets cut off.

This is the portrait on the bottom right corner of the cover.
La belle ferronnière - Wikipedia
La belle ferronnière is a portrait of a lady, usually attributed to Leonardo da Vinci, in the Louvre. It is also known as Portrait of an Unknown Woman. The painting's title, applied as early as the seventeenth century, identifying the sitter as the wife or daughter of an ironmonger (a ferronnier), was said to be discreetly alluding to a reputed mistress of Francis I of France, married to a certain Le Ferron. The tale is a romantic legend of revenge in which the aggrieved husband intentionally infects himself with syphilis, which he passes to the king through infecting his wife.Leonardo's Lady with an Ermine, has also been known by this name. This was once believed to be a portrait of Cecilia Gallerani—one of the mistresses of Lodovico 'il Moro' Sforza, Duke of Milan.[1] The narrative and the title were applied to Lady with an Ermine when it was in Princess Czartoryski's collection, and became confused with "La Belle Ferronniere" by the presence in this image also of a jewel worn on a delicate chain across the forehead, called a ferronnière.
Not sure really what that means. Maybe Trump will get syphilis from banging all these Playboy models.

That vehicle that looks like a rocket, aside from having the flag of Great Britain on it, has a bunch of company names. One of which is called Serco. Apparently, they are involved in a lot of shady shit.
Serco - The Biggest Company You've Never Heard Of - Youtube
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serco
Serco Group plc is a British provider of public services with headquarters based in Hook, Hampshire. Serco operates in six sectors of public service provision: Health, Transport, Justice, Immigration, Defence, and Citizens Services.It is listed on the London Stock Exchange and is a constituent of the FTSE 250 Index. The majority of Serco's turnover is generated from UK operations, but the company also operates in Continental Europe, the Middle East, the Asia Pacific region and North America.
UK operations
Border security
Serco operates the National Border Targeting Centre for UK Visas and Immigration and provides the carrier gateway—the interface between carriers and the agency.
Work and pensions
Serco is contracted to the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) to provide telephone advice on behalf of DWP to recipients of Support for Mortgage Interest (SMI), which ends in April 2018.
Transport
Serco operates the Santander Cycles scheme (for Transport for London) and the NorthLink Ferries Northern Isles lifeline ferry service in Scotland. Serco also has a joint venture with Abellio, the international arm of Dutch national rail operator Nederlandse Spoorwegen, to operate passenger trains in the UK. Serco-Abellio has a 25-year concession for Merseyrail in Liverpool until 2028 and operated the Northern Rail franchise from December 2004 until March 2016. Serco's Home Affairs division, run by Tom Riall, also operates speed camera systems throughout the UK and, until November 2013, designed, wrote and tested the software that controls the matrix message signs, signals, emergency roadside telephones (SOS) and traffic monitoring on England's motorway network including, until 2011,[20] the National Traffic Control Centre. It previously operated the Docklands Light Railway.On 31 March 2015, Serco commenced a 15-year contract to operate the Caledonian Sleeper between London and Scotland.
Science
Serco managed the UK's National Physical Laboratory until 2015 and also provides IT Services, Industrial Support and Cryogenic Operations Support and Maintenance at CERN. Serco also was part of a consortium running the National Nuclear Laboratory under contract, until October 2013.
Prisons and justice
In Britain Serco supplies electronic tagging devices for offenders and asylum seekers. Serco, as well as its rival G4S, was accused of overcharging the Ministry of Justice on its contract to tag offenders. The firm issued a profit warning for 2014 as a result of the costs of becoming embroiled in an electronic tagging scandal. Serco repaid £68.5 million to the government for its overcharging on the contract. In May 2014 a Survation poll for campaign group We Own It, found that 63% of respondents thought Serco should be banned from bidding for any new public contracts after the firm was investigated for overcharging on government contracts.
It runs four prisons, a Young Offenders Institution and a Secure Training Centre. It has also operated two Immigration Removal Centres since 2007. Serco is also responsible for the contracted-out court escort services in the south-east area (formerly a role undertaken by HM Prison Service).
In September 2013, Serco was accused of extensive sexual abuse coverups of immigrants at Yarl's Wood Immigration Removal Centre prison in Bedfordshire, England In August 2014, Serco was criticised for using immigrant detainees as cheap labour, with some being paid as little as £1 per hour. The decision to give the firm a new £70 million eight-year contract to run Yarl's Wood has been criticised. Natasha Walter, of Women for Refugee Women, said "Serco is clearly unfit to manage a centre where vulnerable women are held and it is unacceptable the government continues to entrust Serco with the safety of women who are survivors of sexual violence."
Defence
Serco held defence contracts in 2004, including the UK Government's contract for the maintenance of the Ballistic Missile Early Warning System at RAF Fylingdales; contracts are also held for the operation and maintenance of RAF Brize Norton, RAF Halton, RAF Northolt[39] and RNAS Culdrose in the UK and RAF Ascension Island in the mid-Atlantic. Serco also provides support services to garrisons in Australia. Serco also manages many aspects of operations at the Defence College of Management and Technology in Shrivenham. Serco is one of three partners in the consortium which manages the Atomic Weapons Establishment. Serco also has a 15-year contract worth £400 million to provide facilities management services to the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl).
Serco Marine Services is responsible for fleet support at the three main UK naval bases, HMNB Portsmouth, HMNB Devonport and HMNB Clyde.
Aviation
Serco provides air traffic control services at international airports in the United Arab Emirates and at some smaller airports in the United States and Canada. Starting in 2004 Serco had a £5m a year contract from the US government to manage airports in Iraq for 18 months.[49] Serco also operate Scatsta Airport on Shetland. In June 2010 Serco signed a £4 million contract to operate all air traffic control services for Coventry Airport.
Health
Serco provide facilities management services at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, Leicester Royal Infirmary, Wishaw General Hospital and at Plymouth's Derriford Hospital.
The company had the contract for out-of-hours GP services in Cornwall from which it withdrew in December 2013 after the company left the county short of doctors. The company also said it would stop running Braintree hospital in Essex as it pulled out of managing GP services and large hospitals.
In health services, Serco's difficulties include the poor handling of pathology labs and fatal errors in patient records. At St Thomas' Hospital, the increase in the number of clinical incidents arising from Serco non-clinical management has resulted in patients receiving incorrect and infected blood, as well as patients suffering kidney damage due to Serco providing incorrect data used for medical calculations. A Serco employee later revealed that the company had falsified 252 reports to the National Health Service regarding Serco health services in Cornwall.
It emerged in November 2013, Serco, which won a contract for Suffolk Community Healthcare in 2012, had 72 vacancies after earlier cutting 137 posts. Problems identified by Ipswich and East Suffolk Clinical Commissioning Group include “staff capacity, skill mix, workload, succession planning and morale, training, communication, mobile working, care co-ordination centre processes, incidents and near miss incidents”.
In April 2014 Serco revealed that it would lose almost £18 million on three of its NHS contracts. The firm has made provisions for losses in its Braintree and Cornwall contracts, which were cancelled early. It has also made provisions for losses in its contract for services in Suffolk. The company claims it will take longer to deliver the operational efficiencies it hoped for, despite saying in May 2013 that it expected to make a profit on the three-year, £140 million contract for community services. It said that staff had not recorded activity accurately on the Electronic health record and that activity had increased significantly during the course of the contract.In August 2014 it was reported that the company had decided to withdraw from the clinical health services market in the UK after a review of the cost of delivering “improved service levels” and meeting the performance requirements of several existing contracts.
On 24 October 2017, it was reported that Serco was preparing to buy healthcare contracts from facilities management business Carillion. The deal included 15 contracts, with annual revenues of approximately £90m, for which Serco would pay £47.7m, with Carillion losing £1bn from the value of its order book.
Education
Serco held a ten-year contract with Bradford City Council between 2001 and 2011 to manage and operate the local education authority, providing education support services to the city's schools. This period was marked with "real problems" according to senior council officials and was taken back in house by the local authority after this period. Serco similarly manages and operates Walsall[66] and Stoke-on-Trent local education authorities. Serco is one of Ofsted's three Regional Inspection Service Providers, responsible for school inspections in the English Midlands.
Leisure
Serco Leisure Operating Ltd. operates a number of leisure centres across the UK including Wet 'n' Wild in South Shields and the Manchester Aquatics Centre, the aquatic venue for the 2002 Commonwealth Games in Manchester.
Information technology
Serco administers the publicly funded UK Business Link website. It won a five-year tender in 2007 to run the IT Infrastructure for the London Borough of Southwark.
Waste
Serco operates waste collection services for local councils.
Outside the UK
Drivers' licensing
Serco, through a purpose-made division Serco DES, holds a ten-year, $114 million contract with the Province of Ontario to operate the province's DriveTest driver examination centres. These tests include vision, road, and knowledge tests for all persons seeking to become a licensed automobile driver in the province.
Parking meter servicing
Serco has a contract with the City of Chicago, Illinois, to enforce parking meter regulations.
Health in the United States
In July 2013 Serco was awarded a $1.25 billion contract to manage the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
Prisons and Justice
Serco runs partly privatised Hünfeld Prison in Hesse, Germany.
In Australia, Serco runs Acacia Prison in Western Australia and Borallon Correctional Facility in Queensland as well as the national contract for immigration detention centres, including Christmas Island and the Villawood detention centre in Sydney.
The Union of Christmas Island Workers highlighted the systemic failure by Serco to manage the Christmas Island Immigration Reception and Processing Centre. The centre detains a large number of refugees including 1,000 children. Under Serco, there has been an increase of deaths in custody, self-harm, and of Serco staff beating prisoners. As well, there has been a deterioration of facilities leading to the decline of the physical and the mental health of detainees and of staff. Ombudsman Allan Asher said on the Australian radio show AM, "In the first week of June when I visited Christmas Island, more than 30 incidents of self-harm by detainees held there were reported". Serco, in a staged memo leaked to The Australian, blamed the detainees for "creating a culture of self-harm", in order to use it as a "bargaining tool". The former manager of the Serco run detention centre stated the centre was grossly understaffed whereby it was "typically 15 staff members short every day".
In Auckland, New Zealand, Serco operated the Mount Eden remand prison and in March 2012 was awarded a contract to build and operate a 960-bed prison at Wiri. Serco was heavily criticized for the existence of 'fight clubs' within Mount Eden prison that were not investigated until after they became public knowledge on 16 July 2015 when footage emerged online and was reported by TVNZ. On 24 July 2015, Serco's contract to run the Mount Eden prison was revoked and operation was given back to the New Zealand Department of Corrections. Serco was ordered to pay $8 million to the New Zealand government as a result of problems at Mount Eden Prison while it was under Serco's management. The New Zealand government did not accept that this was a failure of governmental contracting and oversight. It brought in correctional officers from afar to provide adequate staffing at Mount Eden, and by December 2016 had spent NZ$2 million housing up to 40 of them in Auckland hotels.
Transport
From 1997, Serco ran Great Southern Rail in Australia. In March 2015, the business was sold to Allegro Funds.
Serco operates the Dubai Metro and Dubai Tram in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates. Serco formerly operated the Copenhagen Metro in Copenhagen, Denmark, with Ansaldo STS, until it sold its share with effect on 1 January 2008.
In Sydney, Serco has operated the Transport Info service since 1 July 2010.
It secured an eight-year contract in 2013 with its Swedish joint venture partner Strömma Tourism & Maritime (sv) to operate four Djurgården ferries on behalf of Stockholm County Council and public ferry company Waxholms Ångfartygs.
Offshore holdings in Mauritius
The 2017 Paradise Papers revealed that Appleby carried out a risk assessment of Serco and noted it had a "history of problems, failures, fatal errors and overcharging" and had faced allegations of fraud and cover-ups.
Anything look familiar on this helicopter? It's a Phoenix. This is even a part of their "Fire Services" division.

This company is undoubtedly the big player in the NWO agenda, connecting everything together under it's umbrella. If Trump is REALLY on OUR side, the people, he'll get rid of Serco's hold on America and the world if he can. If not, he's just another puppet.
I wonder what the significance of the drum set with the 50th on it is with the guitar smashed through it. Then there's still the Drone with the Amazon package, a bunch of other people I don't recognize including a picture of maybe a Frenchmen right next to the Singapore banner. Not sure who the black guy is behind Hilary and Merkel. Is that his hand above Putin's head? The woman in color between Putin and the Pied Piper. The Japanese (I think) man all the way in the back inbetween the black gentleman and the blonde Phoenix lady. The lady with the purple sash around her neck in between China and India. The guy directly to the right of her. Winston Churchill with the 2 fingers held up high in a bright blue suit and a red bow tie. And the white woman with glasses all the way on the right side, looking towards everything to the left. I think that's everything.
Anyone have any answers for these other people or other interpretations? Amazing how this was over 3 years ago and this stuff is coming true. I'm really starting to think that time travel or at least traveling to parallel universes is real.

Live Coverage and Live Updates
Antenna: Advance local coverage of weather, local and national news. Note that if you are in the path of the hurricane, expect to lose coverage.
Radio: A portable weather radio that is multi-power is highly recommended. Unlike cell phones, it's likely to last longer on its batteries. Cellular service can go down easily in storms as well. Kaito and Buwico are good examples of multi-functional and multi-power radios.

Hurricane Lane
Latest News:
*Lane's weakening trend continues. Over the past several hours, a substantial increase in vertical wind shear has begun to have a significant effect on Hurricane Lane's strength and structure. Satellite imagery analysis reveals that shear of greater than 25 knots has impacted the cyclone's inner core in a way that has caused the cyclone's circulation to become more elongated, as evidenced by the elliptical shape of the central dense overcast. The cyclone's eye is becoming less distinct on satellite imagery, though it is still visible on radar from the Kamuela/Kohala NEXRAD station on Hawaiʻi and the Molokaʻi NEXRAD station. Water vapor imagery indicates that the cyclone's upper-level outflow has become restricted to just the southwestern quadrant of the cyclone.
  • Further weakening is expected. Increasing vertical wind shear is going to be the leading cause of Hurricane Lane's weakening trend over the next few days. Strong shear causes the cyclone to become less vertically stacked. In other words, it causes the cyclone's structure to tilt. This results in the warm, moist air from near the ocean surface to rush out of the cyclone's upper-level outflow away from the cyclone's center, preventing the necessary latent heat release for deep convection to form and sustain itself. Eventually, the strong shear will cause the mid-level circulation center to decouple from the low-level circulation center altogether.
  • Another factor that is expected to cause Hurricane Lane to continue to weaken is terrain influence. As Hurricane Lane continues northward, it will be surrounded on two sides by mountainous islands, which will cause a disruption in the low-level flow into the cyclone. This will inhibit the cyclone's ability to intake warm, moist air from near the ocean surface, preventing additional deep convection from developing.
  • The official forecast from the Central Pacific Hurricane Center remains slightly higher than the bulk of intensity model guidance due to the fact that Hurricane Lane has managed to remain well organized over the past several days and even so during the initial stages of increasing vertical wind shear earlier on Thursday. The current forecast calls for Lane to be a Category 1 hurricane as it makes it closest approach to Oʻahu on early Saturday morning. Lane is expected to remain a weak Category 1 hurricane as it passes Kauai and Niihau to the south during the afternoon hours on Saturday and then weaken to a tropical storm as it passes the islands to the southwest on Sunday.
  • Continued weakening is expected as Hurricane Lane continues toward the northwest toward the Hawaiian Islands, it is expected to steadily weaken. The presence of the upper-level trough over Hawaii will introduce a substantial increase in vertical wind shear over the next few days. Increased wind shear causes the rising moist air from near the ocean surface to become strongly displaced from the low-level circulation center, hampering the cyclone's ability to maintain deep convection around its eye. Furthermore, prolonged interaction with the rough, mountainous terrain of the islands will disrupt the low-level flow into the cyclone, inhibiting the cyclone's ability to draw warm, moist air upward into the core, also preventing the development of deep convection.
  • Lane's motion becomes more northerly. Hurricane Lane is currently moving toward the north-northwest (bearing 330º) at a jogging pace of 5 knots (6 mph). The cyclone continues to move along the western periphery of a mid-level subtropical ridge to the east.
  • Model guidance suggests that the ridge will begin building back in along the southern periphery of the cyclone, which will nudge the cyclone onto a more northerly track over the next day or so. Some models are even suggesting that the cyclone will creep toward the northeast; this includes the GFS, ECMWF, UKMET, NAVGEM, HMON, and HWRF. There is some variance in these model tracks, with some suggesting landfall over Maui or Molokaʻi and some suggesting that the cyclone will remain just off shore, dangerously close to the islands.
  • The Central Pacific Hurricane Center's forecast remains to the left of these models and slightly to the left of the consensus models, which do not indicate landfall.
  • Lane's anticipated westward turn depends on it weakening. Regardless of how close to the islands Hurricane Lane ends up getting, most model guidance suggests that the cyclone will make a hard turn toward the west late on Friday as the cyclone becomes weak and poorly organized, allowing it to become embedded within the easterly low-level tradewind flow.
  • For up to date information on Hurricane Lane, check the /TropicalWeather Lane Thread.

2018.08.01 22:38 s0ngsforthedeaf /r/Championship's Championship club by club season preview - part 1!

Part 2 here - Part 3 here - Part 4 here

On Friday at 8pm UK time, Reading and Derby County will kick off the 127th season of the English second division - also known as the Championship! 24 clubs will compete for 3 promotion spots to the Premier league (2 via automatic promotion and 1 via playoffs) and to avoid the 3 relegation spots to the third tier a.k.a League One.

Its looking like a really tight and competitive season. The league is absolutely full of ambitious player and managerial talent - the more time goes by the more it looks like a Premier League 2. If you want a competitive league with proper English football, that also has the spice of skilful players and forward thinking managers, it really is the place to go.

This is guide written by the fans who have come together on /Championship - an absolutely huge thanks to them. Do check out the sub, we try to keep it a good place to discuss the EFL, away from the rancid gloryhunting shithole that is /soccer (just kidding - I like this place). Lots going on, including a score predictor thread which is running all season.

This guide is in table order with the PL demoted sides first. Only 5 clubs today (because the Swansea one is a fucking novel and I can't fit any more in), the rest will be submitted tomorrow and Friday. Do bare in mind that not all the transfer news will be up to date as these guides were largely written a week ago. Point out to me if there are any clear errors with formatting or spelling.

Championship info, links and media

/Championship's 17/18 player of the season review

Season previews: The Guardian Sky Sports The Mirror
EFL focused podcasts: Not the Top 20 The Totally Football League Show
The 17/18 table - Wolves, Cardiff and Fulham went up. Barnsley, Burton and Sunderland went down. This season West Brom, Swansea and Stoke join from the PL and Wigan, Blackburn and Rotherham join from League 1.
These are the bookies' favourites for promotion (via Oddschecker):
Club Odds
Stoke 2.75
Middlesbrough 4
West Brom 4
Nottingham Forest 4.5
Leeds 4.75
Swansea 5
And relegation:
Club Odds
Rotherham 2.2
Bolton 2.25
Ipswich 4.5
Reading 5
QPR 6
Hull 6
How to watch in the UK: Live rights are owned by Sky Sports. They are upping the number of televised matches this season. Reading v Derby on Friday is televised. The weekly highlights show previously on Channel 5 is moving to Quest TV, which apparently is on Freeview.

Swansea City by RafiakaMacakaDirk and my_knob_is_gr8

Location: Swansea, Wales
Nickname: Swans, The Jacks
Major honours: Football League Cup (2013), Championship Play-off Winner (2011), League One Winners (1925, 1949, 2008)
17/18 finishing postion: 18th (Premier League)
Transfermarkt squad value: €115.5 mil NOTE: This number is as of July 22nd, when we still have Mawson (€15 mil), A. Ayew (€15 mil), Bony (€10 mil), Clucas (€8 mil) and Fernandez (€8 mil), who are all pretty much expected to be sold, or loaned out, before the season starts. Without all of these players except Bony (who's injured for a while so it makes it unlikely he'll be sold soon), the squad value would be around €70 mil.
Manager: Graham Potter joined the Swans on 11th June 2018. In 2010, he became head coach of Östersund, who were in the fourth tier of Swedish football. 5 years later, he got the club promoted into the Swedish top flight and in 2017, they won Svenska Cupen which qualified them for the Europa League where they managed to get through the group stage. He’s been applauded for what he did at Östersund and the way he managed to build the club up from nothing. The year after his success in the Europa league he signed a 3 year contract with Swansea.
Potter is well respected by The Swans and after a few years of poor managerial and financial decisions his appointment is seen as a step in the right direction to bringing us back to our old ways of being a well-run club. Potter has been recognised for his "progressive" and "unconventional" coaching methods. At Östersund, he encouraged his players and staff to engage in community activities, such as performing in theatre and music productions which was designed to take them out of their comfort zone. Potter describes his style of football on the pitch as "tactically flexible, attacking, and possession-based". At Östersund, he deployed a flexible 3–5–2 formation centred on ball possession.
Best player(s)/ talisman:With many of our best players being rumoured with a move away what good players that remain at the start of the season is yet to be seen.
Alfie Mawson is probably our standout player. He’s been amazing for us since we got him and was a bargain at about £3m. He’s great in the air and is just an all round tank. Keeping him will be a huge boost for us and should be solid in the championship.
Federico "El Pajaro" Fernandez has also been strong at the back with Alfie. The pair played with each other for the majority of last season and together became a solid unit. We will most likely sell him to reduce wages though.
Jordan Ayew put in a great shift last season and was our top goal scorer. His work rate was immense and was able to drop back and defend when needed. He’s fast, able to beat a man and a decent finisher. Sadly all these players are transfer targets for other clubs and might not even be here at the start of the season. If we can keep a lot of our players we should have a decent season but who knows who'll be left by the end of the window…
Rising star: Swansea’s U23 had a great season last year and with Potter wanting a young and fresh squad, a handful have moved up into the first team.
Our standout youngster, Oliver McBurnie, joined Barnsley on loan in January last season where he went on to win a Championship player of the month award after 6 goals in 8 games and went on to win Barnsley’s Player of the year award. While only 22, he’s struggled to break into our first team but will most likely be our main striker for the coming season. Be on the lookout for his long legs, miniature shinpads and ridiculous sock length! LEGS LEGS LEGS!!!
Connor Roberts performed well at RB last season and adapted quickly to the premier league where he battled Kyle Naughton to be in the starting line up and did great when given the chance. Decent at going forward and professional at the back. Hopefully potter puts him ahead of Naughton.
What happened last season?: What Happened last season?: After our great escape the season before and with Paul Clement at the helm there was optimism that the 17/18 season could be our turning point where we start rebuilding 'The Swansea Way". How wrong we were.
After a disastrous transfer window where we sold Sigurdsson and never replaced him and started panic buying the week before the transfer window closed we were left an obvious hole in our team. We had no creativity in midfield and no one could kick the ball into the box to save their life. And just to rub it in further Renato Sanches turned out to be more disappointing than Bob Bradley. With the team sitting bottom of the table Clement was sacked in late December.
Then along came the wise talking Carlos Carvalhal who managed to rebuild the confidence the team had lost. Our results took a turn for the good, beating Liverpool, Arsenal, Burnley and West Ham consecutively at home. He pulled us out of the relegation zone and things were looking good. However, the good times were quickly followed by the bad times. Our form turned and we didn’t win a single one of our last 9 matches. We were quickly relegated after pitifully losing to both Southampton and Stoke in our last 2 games of the season.
Highlights (Or lowlights):
The pass by Renato Sanches that summed up his and our season
Swansea City 3-1 Arsenal
Summer transfer business (so far): At the end of last season, it was clear we needed several transfers, both in and out. However, this would all depend on the manager we got.
Yan Dhanda (Free, Liverpool): A 19 year-old Midfielder, Yan Dhanda left Liverpool this summer and joined the Swans in a free, before we even hired Graham Potter. At one time one of the most promosing youngsters in Liverpool's Academy, injuries slowed down his progress, and ultimately made him fall behind other players. Citing lack of first-team playing time, Dhanda decided to join us this summer in hopes of getting regular playing time in the senior squad. Through 3 pre-season games, Dhanda has been one of the brighest and most impressive players in the squad, even scoring a game-winning goal and smashing a penalty in a shootout against Genoa. With our current injuries and shenanigans involved in our midfield, Dhanda has a good chance of becoming a starter and hopefully guide our midfield during the season.
Jordi Govea (Free, Real Madrid): Another 19 year-old from Ecuador, Jordi was the first signing under Potter. Not much can be said about the lad, but this is what Real Madrid had as his bio:
Jordi is an Ecuadorian defender who possess three key qualities for a player in his position: he's skilful, is able to go past a player and has a good shot on him. He's left footed and is able to send in good crosses on the run.
With Martin Olsson currently as our starting LB, and Kyle Naughton as the backup, the hope is that Jordi can develop on our U-23 squad and hopefully move up to the senior squad in coming years. Also the only man I've seen do a medical while wearing jeans (https://twitter.com/SwansOfficial/status/1015251916132057089)
Joel Asoro (€2 mil., Sunderland): Yet another 19 year-old, a Swedish winger who has represented his country in the younger levels, he was Potter's first senior signing. With world-class speed, and some impressive skills, Asoro was able to score 3 goals and get 2 assists last season in 26 apperances for Sunderland. While these numbers may seem a bit disappointing, many of these games were sub appearances on a very dysfunctional team. Along with Dhanda, Asoro has been one of the most impressive players during preseason, constantly beating his man with either speed or skills, and whipping in good balls to Legs. At the current rate, Asoro appears to have a good chance of starting on the right wing spot, with Nathan Dyer and Luciano Narsingh backing him up.
Predicted starting XI: NOTE: This is gonna be assuming Mawson, A. Ayew, Clucas, and Fernandez are all sold by the start of the season. If by some reason they end up staying, they are pretty much guaranteed to start. Based on the pre-season games so far, a lineup looking like this would be plausible, with Rodon most likely to be replaced by a CB (possibly Scott McKenna) when we buy one. Our second unit is looking something like this.
Best case scenario: Graham Potter is able to motivate and make sure our senior players (Fer, Carroll, etc.) stay fit, along with our youngsters being able to make an impact as expected, and also we retain Mawson, Fernandez, and Clucas, we can finish in the top 2 and get promoted automatically.
Worst case scenario: Our worst case scenario, and something many of us fear of happening, consists of primarily 3 things. 1. Graham Potter isn't given enough time to build an identity with our squad and is sacked by the midway point of the season by the greedy, dumb American owners. . 2. We end up not replacing the players we sold properly like last summer, therefore having a squad with holes everywhere and no chemistry. 3. Our youngsters such as Asoro, McBurnie, Dhanda and company don't pan out and progress at all, thefore becoming mediocre players. This would all culminate in us looking like Sunderland, and making relegation a probability.
Prediction: Realistically I see us selling Mawson and company in the last days before the season starts and not replacing them properly until later on. Because of this, as well as our current injuries with Fer and Clucas, I can see us initially struggling to build an identity but over time, we will start playing like Potter wants us and finishing the season strongly.
8th place, missing the play-offs by 4 points
What will happen to your closest rivals?: The scum that is known as Cardiff City will break the record for lowest points ever accumulated in a Premier League season, getting 5 points all from draws, and will therefore get relegated with 17 games to spare.

West Bromwich Albion by Joelwba

Location: The Hawthorns, West Bromwich, West Midlands
Nickname: The Baggies, The Throstles
Major honours: 1x League title, 1x League Cup, 5x FA Cup
17/18 finishing postion: 20th in Premier League (relegated)
Transfermarkt squad value: £101.16m
Manager: Darren Moore or Big Dave as he's known to Albion fans. A club icon as a player in the early 2000s, he returned to look after our U23 squad before being promoted to assistant manager by Alan Pardew in January. Following the end of Pardew's horrific reign, Moore took temporary charge with Albion facing inevitable relegation. He led us to wins over Newcastle, Spurs, Man Utd and a draw with Liverpool, somehow taking our futile battle for survival to the final week of the season. Following this he earned the head coach role permanently. Moore is loved among the Albion faithful, largely due to his reputation as a player here. He heavily favours a 4-4-2 formation and at the back end of last season, tended to soak up pressure and play on the counter attack. It will be interesting to see how his approach differs in a league where we are one of the favourites, not fighting to survive (hopefully)
Best player(s)/ talisman: It's an interesting situation for Albion currently. There are plenty of Premier League quality players still in the squad. A lot depends on if they are picked off before the deadline shuts. Chris Brunt is a club stalwart and likely to be reappointed as captain. He is adored by the fans and in my opinion will be an incredible asset in the championship. His set pieces alone will bring 10+ goals to the side. Kieran Gibbs is a high quality player who appears to be set to stay and should make a big difference. Jay Rodriguez, Craig Dawson, Salomon Rondon and Nacer Chadli should all make a big difference in this division IF they stay. In all honesty I expect to lose a few of the above. Sam Johnstone appears to be an astute signing to replace the outgoing Ben Foster.
Rising star: Sam Field he's one of our own! He looked completely at home against some of the top Premier League sides last campaign. A box-to-box midfielder, he's full of energy and looks so comfortable on the ball. I expect him to be a major part of our side this season, having just signed a new long-term deal.
Kyle Edwards is an exciting attacking midfielder who has been impressing in pre-season. He may have a part to play following a loan spell at Exeter last campaign.
Jonathon Leko looked like a potential world-beater when he first came through a couple of years back. A lightning quick winger full of tricks. A loan spell at Bristol City and limited appearances later he seems to be losing his way. Will be an interesting one to watch.
Finally, the enigma that is Olly Burke. After signing with us last summer for £15m, he failed to impress any of the four managers we had over the season. He looks exciting when he comes on, without any end product so far, and was unfairly blamed for a loss at West Ham by Alan 'Coward' Pardew. We all know the talent he's got. Hopefully we can see it this season.
What happened last season?: Let's not talk about it... We finally escaped the stranglehold of Tony Pulis, only to opt for the human joke that is Alan Pardew and duly hurtled towards relegation. Four of our players stole a taxi and then played (and lost) the following weekend.
Pardew was sacked about 3 months too late, and Moore took over, restoring pride with some notable wins over Man Utd and Spurs.
This season we also lost the great Cyrille Regis, and the outpouring of emotion and the coming together of the club during the weeks after his passing was something special.
Summer transfer business (so far): We started by releasing Claudio Yacob, Boaz Myhill and Gareth McAuley. Yacob and McAuley will be greatly missed but it is perhaps the right time for them to go.
Jonny Evans departed for Leicester for a cut-price £3m, Ben Foster left for Watford and James McClean has departed for Stoke City.
Sam Johnstone has been bought in to replace Foster, with Jonathon Bond arriving as backup. Kyle Bartley has joined from Swansea City and it appears that Harvey Barnes will soon be arriving on loan from Leicester.
Finally, James Morrison is currently out of contract but still with the club. His future is uncertain.
I am very happy with Johnstone and Bartley. It has been a quiet window for Albion so far but that is largely a good thing. The squad is packed with Premier League talent and the window is more about keeping hold of them.
There is major interest in Dawson and Rondon, along with interest in Rodriguez, Hegazi and Chadli. If any of the above go, then we would need to replace. Otherwise I would be happy with another striker and another CB.
It is also worth mentioning that every player in the Albion side suffered a 50% wage cut upon relegation which means that we are financially sound despite relegation, but may lead to more big names leaving.
Predicted starting XI: This is my best attempt. It will undoubtedly be 4-4-2. We may see Nyom in at right back and perhaps Barry in for Field.
Obviously about half of this side could leave, so we shall see.
Best case scenario: The bulk of the side remains and the quality in the side shines through as we breeze to automatic promotion.
Worst case scenario: The better players leave or do not put the effort in. Moore cannot transfer his great start into his first full season in management. We become embroiled in a relegation battle
Prediction: It will be somewhere in the middle. I'd like to think we'll go up automatically but I think play-offs are more likely. 6th
What will happen to your closest rivals?: Villa won't go down but will settle into mid-table, despite the recent takeover.
I think Wolves will do well in the PL, although I don't know how long Nuno will last before a big club comes in.

Stoke City by mrmariomaster

Location: Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire
Nickname: The Potters
Stadium: bet365 Stadium, 30,089 seats
Major honours: 1972 League Cup
17/18 finishing position: 19th, Premier League
Squad value: £127.8 million
Manager: Gary Rowett signed from Derby in May. His honest attitude has brought lots of optimism to fans, who are looking forward to an overhaul of the Club. His style of play seems to change based on the squad he has available.
Best Player: Joe Allen was vital to the Club last season, giving us hope that we would avoid relegation. His massive new contract signed this summer shows how loyal and committed to the Club he is, and will be a vital player this season.
Rising star: Tom Edwards is a local lad who has won the Under 18 Player of the Year award twice in the Club. In the latter parts of last season he played some good first team football.
What happened last season: A pathetic attempt at a season that had been coming for a while under Mark Hughes. Paul Lambert was appointed in January, but a win rate of just 2 in 15 matches wasn’t enough for him to keep his job and miss out on the million pound bonus offered to him.
Transfer business so far: So far this has been a decent transfer window. Peter Etebo had an amazing World Cup for Nigeria and Benik Afobe looks really promising. Adam Federici has also been appointed to replace Lee Grant. Xherdan Shaqiri has left along with a few players like Stephen Ireland and Glen Johnson who will not be missed. Badou Ndiaye also looks to be on his way out, but it looks like Jack Butland will stay with us, which is massive. Perhaps most surprising are the new contracts signed by our 2 best players last season, Joe Allen and Moritz Bauer.
Predicted Line up: Here is our predicted squad. I’m not sure what formation we will have. EDIT: This is a new version, complete with our rumoured new signings and in the right formation.
Best case scenario: Stoke will finish top with an all-time Championship points record.
Worst case scenario: A mediocre start to the season will see Rowett sacked and Stoke with a disappointing mid-table finish.
Prediction: I think with our squad and our new manager, we will finish 1st.
What will happen to our closest rivals? Port Vale will be relegated to the Vanarama National League.

Aston Villa by trueschoolalumni

Location: Villa Park, Trinity Rd, Birmingham B6 6HE
Nickname: The Villans, The Villa, Prince William's Club, David "Twat" Cameron's Second Club.
Major honours: 7 First Division wins, 7 FA Cups, 5 League Cups, 1 European Cup, 1 European Super Cup, 1 Intertoto Cup
17/18 finishing postion: 4th
Transfermarkt squad value: £67.77m and dropping fast
Manager: Steve Bruce (for now). Former Man Utd playing legend who's been a fixture of English football for decades. He joined Villa in 2016 after successful runs at Hull, Sunderland (yes they were good once) and Birmingham City. A bit of a promotion specialist, he's taken Championship clubs up to the Premier League 4 times in the past and just missed out last season, losing 1-0 to Fulham in the Playoff Final. Tactically, he's fairly old school who prefers 4-4-2 or a 4-1-4-1, usually involving a big man up top. Fun fact: while managing Huddersfield in 1999 he wrote three novels, "Striker!", "Sweeper!" and "Defender!", which focus on main character Steve Barnes, a football manager. Barnes solves crime and takes on terrorists, and the books have become prized rarities. The Guardian's Football Weekly podcast managed to get a copy and read out some of the copy - suitably awful.
Best player(s)/ talisman: There's only one Jack Grealish. A Villa boy through and through, he's been with the club since 2001 (aged 6), and made his way into the first team in the 2013-14 season. He's been the centre of controversy a few times, most notably getting on the beers and passing out on a Tenerife street. Playing as a number 10, his quick feet and dribbling skills provide a number of goals and assists, as well as fouls. He probably went down a bit too easily when first in the Premier League, but time in the gym has noticeably toughened him up and he's a much more solid player as a result. One of the better players in the Championship, and due to Villa's abject finances, a transfer target for the likes of Leicester.
Rising star: Keinan Davis could possibly be it, potentially Andre Green and Rushian Hepburn-Murphy as well.
What happened last season?: Have you ever walked into a casino, spotted the roulette table and popped £10,000 on red? It's a bold strategy, Cotton. Let's see if it pays off. You've doubled your money if you win, but look like a right git if you lose. Villa figured this was a good way to approach 2017-18: spend millions on players, get in lots of loans, gamble everything on achieving promotion. After a so-so start, Bruce got the team playing well, stringing together a number of wins and moving through the playoff spots. Unfortunately they ran into a few teams playing out of their skin - champions Wolves ran away with the league and boasted a squad that included several Champions League players. Neil Warnock's Cardiff couldn't stop winning and grabbed the second automatic promotion. In the playoff final Villa came up against a Ryan Sessegnon-led Fulham and were just pipped at the post 1-0.
Summer transfer business (so far): It's one-way traffic, due to absolutely abysmal finances. Loan spells for Lewis Grabban, Robert Snodgrass, Josh Onomah and Sam Johnstone have all ended, which is almost the spine of the team (Johnstone in particular - he was arguably the best keeper in the Championship and personally bagged a number of wins). Plus clubs are circling to pick off whatever assets we have left (eg. Jack Grealish, James Chester). With no prospect of anyone new coming in, it looks like the youth academy will be getting a lot more game time.
Predicted starting XI: Possibly this, but half these players could be gone before the first match.
Best case scenario: Mid-table anonymity would have to be best case - Villa are a mess and could go down this time around.
Worst case scenario: Our finances are the real issue - they are dire. Villa need to find £9 million this month to avoid going into administration. Owner "Dr." Tony Xia is a billionaire, apparently, but tax bills went unpaid and the question remains if he's able to support the club as generously as he has in the past. Administration, points deductions and potentially relegation to League One are all real possibilities right now. It's not looking good.
Prediction: Due to financial irregularities in the 23 clubs above us, Villa will get into the Champions League and take out the likes of Atletico, Bayern and Real Madrid on the way to our second European Cup. "Taylor, Green, prepared to venture down the left. There's a good ball played in for Jack Grealish. Oh, it must be and it is! It's Keinan Davis!"
What will happen to your closest rivals?: Unfortunately the Scum managed to avoid League One in the final rounds of the season. Here's hoping they go one better. Agbonlahor to re-sign for one game: the Derby. And score the winner, again.

Middlesbrough by OneSmallHuman

Location: The Riverside Stadium, Middlesbrough
Founded: 1876
Nickname: The Boro (Or just Boro)
Major honours: The League cup 2003-2004 season
17/18 finishing position: 5th
Transfermarkt squad value: 79.34m
Manager: Tony Pulis became manager of us in late December 2017, replacing the sacked Garry Monk after a pretty lacklustre few months of the campaign (despite where our league position was). Pulis is known in England for being the man that is never relegated when in charge of someone in the top flight. We are all aware of Tony Pulis' style of football. You start by having a strong and massive defence and maximise your use of set pieces to gain an advantage. Pulis is a lover of all set piece plays, whether that is crossing the ball in from a corner or free kick, or launching a ball into the box from a throw in, they're all in his arsenal of weapons. 'Pulisball' as it is pretty much known. Pulis has achieved promotion from the championship once before with Stoke, and I hope he achieves it again with us this season
Best player(s)/ rising star: I mean, where else do I begin. Adama Traore. Arguably the best player in the championship on his day and is one of the most frightening dribblers in English football, maybe even world football. The winger is known for his speed and dribbling ability although is usually criticised for his lack of end product. Before last season I would've agreed, however 5 goals and 10 assists, with all but 2 assists coming before Pulis' arrival show the progression of the Spanish winger.
As for other members of the squad, Ben Gibson, the prodigal son. Boro through and through he's progressed into a commanding centre half with the ability to play out from the back thanks to Karanka. He gained attention and emerged as one of the few given credit after our disappointing premier league campaign but was only the subject of one bid upon our relegation, from now manager Tony Pulis. It remains to be seen whether he'll be here come the first game of the season, but I hope he will be.
As for future stars, Dael Fry, already has played 2 championship campaigns for us and looks as assured as a veteran of the game. Another centre half produced by our academy and he is being played in cdm this pre-season by Pulis, to add to his versatility. Hopefully a standout season for him, especially if Gibson does end up leaving. Finally, yes, he does always look as confused as images of him show.
What happened last season?: Well, the first half of the season was tragic under Monk. We played really poor football at times and looked like we hadn't defended a day in our lives. There was also no consistency in the team, we'd win one game then lose the next. A key theme under both managers however, was our inability to beat those around us in the table. After Pulis' appointment the results picked up and it ended with us finishing 5th in the table. We ultimately lost in the playoff semi finals to Aston Villa but honestly, we didn't think we'd even be in the top half around Christmas.
Summer transfer business (so far): Just the three deals to talk about so far. We've acquired Paddy McNair from Sunderland who looks like a decent player. He's been utilised in right back and midfield during pre-season so it looks like they'll be his positions for the season. I imagine he'll play alongside Clayts and Howson in a midfield three.
Aden Flint was signed from Bristol City and I think I'm in the minority when I say I don't like how much we paid for him. Obviously the man is a Pulis player but I'm a bit unsure about his defensive ability. That being said he's looked strong during pre-season and I'm sure Pulis will get the best out of him. Fabio departed our club for Nantes so we'll need more full back cover.
As for the rest of the window, I expect Gibson to leave but will be delighted if he doesn't. One of our strikers will also leave and Braithwaite should follow after his decent World Cup performances. We'll probably bring in a striker and a winger and hopefully hold onto Adama. That'd be a successful window in my eyes.
Predicted starting XI: My best guess The only other guess I could make is that Gibson might leave and then Ayala would start, but he's injured at this point in time. Britt might play over Gestede too if Pulis is feeling fancy.
Best case scenario: It has to be top of the pile right? It's not out of the question to imagine us up there and if everything clicks then we've got a chance. A defence that scores more than some teams' strikers, Adama channelling his inner Messi and finding consistency, Rudy/Britt/Bamford scoring for fun. It could be carnage.
Worst case scenario: I can't see us finishing outside the playoffs, if we did then that would be gut-wrenching. But if we did then that would most certainly be the worst. Realistically, it'd be losing in the playoffs... again, and if it were in the final again then god help me. Although saying this, now losing Bamford and maybe Traore will be a worst case scenario in itself, definitely if they're not replaced.
Prediction: Have to be confident, although it always kills me. 1st or 2nd. Tony Pulis and his nice white trainers carry us to the promise land. That being said, we never do it the easy way.
Best Match of Last Season Sorry Leeds fans, but it had to be. "Hattrick Bamford" as our Twitter account tweeted, 3-0 against Leeds with Adama running the show. Leeds clearly found some positive from the game as they're set to sign him off us. This was the sign of what we should've done more last season. Showed what Paddy could've been too if given an even more extended period in Striker by himself. Oh well.
What will happen to your closest rivals?: Who even are our closest rivals in this league? We're in geographical purgatory. Can't say Sunderland anymore so what? Leeds? Bielsa either turns them into the well oiled machine they hope for or he succumbs to the old Leeds ways and is sacked by December. As for the Mackems, probably promoted from League 1.

2018.07.29 15:24 Oblique9043 The Economist 2015 Cover Predictions and Serco

Everyone needs to keep in mind at all times that the symbol of the Illuminati is the PHOENIX. It's colors are Purple, Red and Gold. It is associated with and the Sun. It represents immortality through death and rebirth. Dragons, Eagles and Falcons will sometimes be used as alternative symbols to represent the Phoenix to try and hide it.

Cover of The Economist - The World in 2015
Anything bolded in brackets is my own added commentary. [EXAMPLE]
The Economist 2015 Cover is Filled With Cryptic Symbols and Dire Predictions
January 8, 2015
I wouldn’t normally dedicate an entire article analyzing the cover of a publication, but this isn’t any publication. It is The Economist and it is directly related to the world elite. It is partly owned by the Rothschild banking family of England and its editor-in-chief, John Micklethwait, attended several times to the Bilderberg Conference – the secretive meeting where the world’s most powerful figures from the world of politics, finance business, and media discuss global policies. The outcome of those meetings is totally secret. It is, therefore, safe to say that the people at The Economist know things that most people don’t. For this reason, its “2015 prediction” cover is rather puzzling.
The bleak and sinister cover features political figures, fictional characters and pop culture icons that will surely make the news in 2015. However, most importantly, it also includes several drawings that are extremely symbolic and allude to important elements of the elite’s Agenda. Here’s the cover :
At first glance, we see political figures like Obama and Putin, references to the Rugby cup and the new Spider-Man movie. But a closer look reveals a plethora of disturbing elements. Here are some of them.
Two-Faced Globe
https://vigilantcitizen.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/world.jpg
[Just like the Double Headed Phoenix of Russia, Trump's and the Scottish Rite Freemanon's Coat of Arms]
One side of the globe gazes stoically towards the West while the other side appears irate. Does this represent a confrontation between the East and the West? The cover features a few other symbols referring to the “rise of the East”. What’s more unsettling is that immediately under that angry globe, are pictured a mushroom cloud (the kind that happens after a nuclear bomb goes off) and a spy satellite launching into space.
https://vigilantcitizen.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/mushroom.jpg
[The NASA spy satellite could represent Trump's Space Force. We're going to drop a nuke on North Korea or Iran]
The Color of the Faces
Take a closer look at the faces of the personalities featured on the cover. Some of them are in full color while others are in black and white. Why is that?
https://vigilantcitizen.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/faces.jpg
Among those in black in white are Putin, Merkel, Obama, Hilary Clinton and David Cameron. Among those in color are David Blaine, a young person holding a “Singapore” banner (Singapore is the host of the 2015 SEA games) and a random guy wearing virtual reality equipment. A quick compilation of this data reveals that those in black and white appear to be part of the elite (including the ISIS guy who probably works for them) and those in color are “outsiders”. Is this how the elite perceives the world?
Pied Piper
https://vigilantcitizen.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/piper2.jpg
The presence of the Pied Piper on this 2015-themed cover is downright unsettling. The Pied Piper of Hamelin is a German legend about a man who used his magical flute to lure away the children of the city of Hamelin, never to be seen again.

The Pied Piper leads the children out of Hamelin. Illustration from Robert Browning’s “The Pied Piper of Hamelin”
This folkloric figure dating from the Middle-Ages is said to represent either massive death by plague or catastrophe, or a movement of massive immigration. It also perfectly represents today’s youth being “lured” and mystified by the “music” of mass media. Conveniently enough, there’s a small boy right under Piper’s flute.
[Pied Piper is obviously Trump/Putin. Leading people into their deaths as well as the child separation thing at the border]
Clueless Boy
https://vigilantcitizen.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/boy.jpg
Right under the Pied Piper, we see a young boy with a dumbfounded look on his face. He is watching a game called “Panic”. The words “Federal Reserve” and “Chi” (which probably stands for China) are on top while the words “Green light!” and “sis!” (which probably stands for “Isis!” or “Crisis!”) are at the bottom. The little boy watches as this twisted game of Plinko unfolds the same way the clueless masses watch powerlessly while various events unfold on mass media. As the name of the game states, the ultimate goal is to cause Panic around the world as crises are almost randomly generated by those who control the game. And that’s on a magazine cover owned by the Rothschilds.
[Trump is poised to try and take over the Federal Reserve and China could dump our bonds just like Russia is doing while his supporters look on like the "Clueless Boy"]
Crop-O-Dust
https://vigilantcitizen.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Untitled-1.jpg
In front of Putin is a small aircraft on which is written Crop-O-Dust. This refers to the concept of crop dusting which is “the process of spraying crops with powdered insecticides or fungicides from an aircraft.” Right under the helicopter is a kid … eating something. Unsettling.
https://vigilantcitizen.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/kid.jpg
Sitting right under the crop-o-dust, this kid is eating a heavily processed package of noodles. Is he ingesting the poison that was spread by the aircraft?
China
http://vigilantcitizen.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/china-e1420664430567.jpg
A panda bear wearing a China-flag Speedo while flexing its muscles is a rather clear way of portraying the fact that China is gaining power. Next to it is a sumo wrestler holding a big battery on which the polarities (+ and -) are clearly indicated. Are they alluding to a switch in polarity in world power from the West to the East?
[This is definitely happening right now]
Ghost
https://vigilantcitizen.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/ghost.jpg
Emerging from behind Obama’s leg is a ghost reading a magazine entitled “Holiday”. Why is this ghost, which represents a dead person, planning a vacation? Does it represent the fact that the masses will be so impoverished that the only time they’ll be on a holiday is when they’re dead? Does it relate to the countless people who died while traveling in the past months? Creepy.
Turtle
https://vigilantcitizen.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/turtle.jpg
Standing in front of everything else, gazing right into our souls is a turtle with emphasis lines around its shell. What does it represent? Will turtles make a huge comeback in 2015? Probably not.
An angry tortoise is the symbol of the Fabian Society, an extremely powerful organization that has been working for over a century towards to formation of a single world government.
http://vigilantcitizen.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/when-i-strike-i-strike-hard.jpg.bmp
The motto of the Fabian Society is “When I strike, I strike hard”.
The philosophy behind Fabian socialism is basically the blueprint of what we call today the New World Order.
The Fabian Society is a very old group originating in England in 1884, with the purpose of forming a single, global socialist state. They get their name from the Roman general Fabius, who used carefully planned strategies to slowly wear down his enemies over a long period of time to obtain victory. “Fabian Socialism” uses incremental change over a long period of time to slowly transform a state as opposed to using violent revolution for change. It is essentially socialism by stealth. Their original emblem was a shield with a wolf in sheep’s clothing holding a flag with the letters F.S. Today the international symbol of the Fabian Society is a turtle, with the motto below: “When I strike, I strike hard.” – The Fabian Society, The Weather Eye
The Fabian Society used to openly advocate a scientifically planned society and supported eugenics by way of sterilization. Its original logo was a wolf in sheep’s clothing … But I guess that was not the best way to conceal the wolf from the masses.
https://vigilantcitizen.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Fabian_Society_Logo.jpg
The original logo of the Fabian Society was a wolf in sheep's clothing.
Bringing forth a global system through small incremental changes is exactly what the world elite is currently doing. This is probably why there’s an angry tortoise on the cover of this Bilderberg-connected publication – standing in front of the chaos behind it.
11.3 and 11.5
https://vigilantcitizen.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/dirt.jpg
The lower right side of the cover features some more cryptic symbols. There’s a pile of dirt on the ground and two arrows on which are inscribed 11.5 and 11.3. Are those dates to remember? Why are they next to a pile of dirt? If you look up these figures as coordinates, they point to somewhere in Nigeria. Displaying numbers that can only be truly understood by “those in the know” is one of the occult elite’s favorite hobbies.
Standing in front of the dirt is Alice in Wonderland looking upwards towards the Cheshire Cat.
https://vigilantcitizen.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/cat.jpg
This iconic cat is known for disappearing entirely, leaving only visible its creepy grin. We, therefore, see another allusion to a world of fantasy, illusion, and deceit as perceived by Alice – a representative of the masses. Along with the somewhat unnecessary inclusion of David Blaine – a magician – the cover mixes real-world events with illusions.
Other notable symbols on this cover include a piggy bank flying from James Cameron’s pockets; A model wearing an Alexander McQueen creation (the elite’s favorite designer who died in strange circumstances) and an Asian officer wearing a facemask to protect him from a deadly disease.
2015 seems great, doesn’t it?
In Conclusion
The Economist is not a random newspaper that publishes quirky 2015 predictions to sell a few additional copies. It is directly connected to those who shape global policies and who make sure that they are applied. The publication is partly owned by the Rothschild banking family of England and its editor regularly attends Bilderberg meetings. In other words, The Economist is connected to those who have the means and the power to make “predictions” a reality.
The 2015-themed cover basically reflects the overall Agenda of the elite and is peppered with cryptic symbols that appear to be included for “those in the know”. And the masses, like Alice watching the Cheshire Cat disappear, will focus on illusions while the wolf in sheep’s clothing will strike … and strike hard.
Keep in mind that this was posted in January of 2015, 3 and a half years ago, and almost all of it is happening right now.
Some things the author of the article couldn't have known, you notice how Obama is wearing a deep blue suit with a red tie? When has he ever worn that? But you know who does?

The Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi on the far right. He is a big proponent of AI and the Transhumanism agenda. As well as being one the leaders to ushering in the use of blockchain for all sorts of things.
PM Modi Pitches For Usage Of AI and Blockchain In Agriculture
“India’s youth can lead a revolutionary movement using AI and blockchain technologies with a value addition,” PM Narendra Modi said during a convocation ceremony held recently at Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology, Jammu.
“With blockchain technology, this problem can also be controlled. Through a real-time monitoring of the supply chain, the technology can bring in transparency in the agricultural trade — starting from the production process to making it available for the farmers as products can be examined at every stage.”
“This will have a complete network comprising farmers, processing units, regulatory authorities and consumers. Because one affiliated to this chain can keep an eye on this, therefore, the scope of corruption will also be reduced. Most importantly, this will check the mischievous acts of the middlemen and the harvest will not go wasted,” PM Modi said.
G20 Countries Eye For Cryptocurrency AML Regulation Standards By October 2018
After the G20 watchdog the Financial Stability Board (FSB) recently submitted its report to the G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors on the work of the FSB and standard-setting bodies on crypto-assets, the G20 nations now plan to bring in the cryptocurrency market under the purview of international AML standards, said an official statement released during a meeting in Buenos Aires recently.
The G20 forum, in which India is a prominent member, plans to apply the anti-money laundering (AML) regulatory standards for the cryptocurrency sector by October this year.
For its part, the FSB has already developed a framework in collaboration with the Committee on Payments and Market Infrastructures (CPMI), to monitor the financial stability implications of developments in crypto-asset markets. The report published recently sets out the metrics that the FSB will use to monitor crypto-asset markets as part of its ongoing assessment of vulnerabilities in the financial system.
As per the statement, members agreed to the implementation of the FATF standards and have asked the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) – an international body of 37 nations – to clarify in October 2019 how its standards apply to crypto-assets.
Iran Turns To Cryptocurrency Post The US Sanctions
As the US President Donald Trump recently took a U-turn from the multi-nation Iran-US-EU nuclear deal and announced fresh Iran-related sanctions which might curb Iran’s oil business, Iran is reportedly working on its cryptocurrency to bypass the new economic sanctions posed by the US.
Iran government’s official news channel PressTV reported quoting the department’s deputy head in charge of investment affairs Alireza Daliri that a fiat cryptocurrency development project is ongoing in cooperation with the Central Bank of Iran.
“We are trying to prepare the grounds to use a domestic digital currency in the country,” stated Daliri.
Canada wants to help India lead 'blockchain revolution'
Blockchain Technology used to record 50 Million DNA data in India
Notice the woman with the Phoenix on her head? Gold wings with purple in them. A nest with eggs right in the center of her forehead.
Putin has sunglasses on as a way to hide from something I think and he and Obama/Trump both have red ties on symbolizing unity I'm thinking.
Does anyone know who the two guys looking over Obama's shoulders are? That seems significant but I don't know who they are.
See the drawing of a Chinese man hiding behind the Singapore banner? The North Korea situation anyone? Especially with David Blaine right in front of it.
It looks like Hillary and Putin are looking at each other and that's why Putin has sun glasses on. Putin has sort of a sly smirk on his face and Hillary's is pretty expressive. I think they all wanted Trump to get elected. Even in those DNC hacked emails they said their strategy was to make Trump the guy they ran against. Even referred to him as a "Pied Piper Candidate". Which is why Obama told everyone to stand down when they realized that Russia was hacking us.
https://images.firstpost.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/pied-piper.jpg
The Pied Piper is right next to Putin for a reason and the fish coming from behind his legs? Those are Christians. Jesus told his disciples to be fishers of men.
The leader of China seems to be pretty aligned with Obama/Trump. Which makes sense because the infamous Steele Dossier says that Trump and his team didn't care much about the Russia stuff because then people won't be looking into his other business dealings like those with China.
I'm really curious about the football shaped Earth that looks like its about to be punted away. Hope that doesn't mean what I think it means. Maybe its an egg in a nest just like the Phoenix lady with the nest in the middle of her forehead?
The fact that the Cheshire cat and the Ghost looking at a vacation magazine are coming from behind Obama/Trump is really interesting and just shows that it's all just an illusion. Not sure what the ghost represents. Maybe the Holy Ghost?
Then there's a big vehicle right behind India and China's legs (mostly India's). I wonder if that means they'll be taken out somehow.
What looks like 2 Islamic terrorists, one in the back holding up an AK and one on the left looking through some binoculars to the west, seem to be reminding us that they're still here, watching us, waiting to strike. Are they waiting for the "green light" that is under the Planco Panic game? I wonder if the conspiracy theory about the White Helmets is true and the real reason they got evacuated so quickly from Syria by Israel and other allied nations was so they could be relocated to where they need to be when the power gets cut off.

This is the portrait on the bottom right corner of the cover.
La belle ferronnière - Wikipedia
La belle ferronnière is a portrait of a lady, usually attributed to Leonardo da Vinci, in the Louvre. It is also known as Portrait of an Unknown Woman. The painting's title, applied as early as the seventeenth century, identifying the sitter as the wife or daughter of an ironmonger (a ferronnier), was said to be discreetly alluding to a reputed mistress of Francis I of France, married to a certain Le Ferron. The tale is a romantic legend of revenge in which the aggrieved husband intentionally infects himself with syphilis, which he passes to the king through infecting his wife.
Leonardo's Lady with an Ermine, has also been known by this name. This was once believed to be a portrait of Cecilia Gallerani—one of the mistresses of Lodovico 'il Moro' Sforza, Duke of Milan.[1] The narrative and the title were applied to Lady with an Ermine when it was in Princess Czartoryski's collection, and became confused with "La Belle Ferronniere" by the presence in this image also of a jewel worn on a delicate chain across the forehead, called a ferronnière.
Not sure really what that means. Maybe Trump will get syphilis from banging all these Playboy models.

That vehicle that looks like a rocket, aside from having the flag of Great Britain on it, has a bunch of company names. One of which is called Serco. Apparently, they are involved in a lot of shady shit.
Serco - The Biggest Company You've Never Heard Of - Youtube
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serco
Serco Group plc is a British provider of public services with headquarters based in Hook, Hampshire. Serco operates in six sectors of public service provision: Health, Transport, Justice, Immigration, Defence, and Citizens Services.
It is listed on the London Stock Exchange and is a constituent of the FTSE 250 Index. The majority of Serco's turnover is generated from UK operations, but the company also operates in Continental Europe, the Middle East, the Asia Pacific region and North America.
UK operations
Border security
Serco operates the National Border Targeting Centre for UK Visas and Immigration and provides the carrier gateway—the interface between carriers and the agency.
Work and pensions
Serco is contracted to the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) to provide telephone advice on behalf of DWP to recipients of Support for Mortgage Interest (SMI), which ends in April 2018.
Transport
Serco operates the Santander Cycles scheme (for Transport for London) and the NorthLink Ferries Northern Isles lifeline ferry service in Scotland. Serco also has a joint venture with Abellio, the international arm of Dutch national rail operator Nederlandse Spoorwegen, to operate passenger trains in the UK. Serco-Abellio has a 25-year concession for Merseyrail in Liverpool until 2028 and operated the Northern Rail franchise from December 2004 until March 2016. Serco's Home Affairs division, run by Tom Riall, also operates speed camera systems throughout the UK and, until November 2013, designed, wrote and tested the software that controls the matrix message signs, signals, emergency roadside telephones (SOS) and traffic monitoring on England's motorway network including, until 2011,[20] the National Traffic Control Centre. It previously operated the Docklands Light Railway.
On 31 March 2015, Serco commenced a 15-year contract to operate the Caledonian Sleeper between London and Scotland.
Science
Serco managed the UK's National Physical Laboratory until 2015 and also provides IT Services, Industrial Support and Cryogenic Operations Support and Maintenance at CERN. Serco also was part of a consortium running the National Nuclear Laboratory under contract, until October 2013.
Prisons and justice
In Britain Serco supplies electronic tagging devices for offenders and asylum seekers. Serco, as well as its rival G4S, was accused of overcharging the Ministry of Justice on its contract to tag offenders. The firm issued a profit warning for 2014 as a result of the costs of becoming embroiled in an electronic tagging scandal. Serco repaid £68.5 million to the government for its overcharging on the contract. In May 2014 a Survation poll for campaign group We Own It, found that 63% of respondents thought Serco should be banned from bidding for any new public contracts after the firm was investigated for overcharging on government contracts.
It runs four prisons, a Young Offenders Institution and a Secure Training Centre. It has also operated two Immigration Removal Centres since 2007. Serco is also responsible for the contracted-out court escort services in the south-east area (formerly a role undertaken by HM Prison Service).
In September 2013, Serco was accused of extensive sexual abuse coverups of immigrants at Yarl's Wood Immigration Removal Centre prison in Bedfordshire, England In August 2014, Serco was criticised for using immigrant detainees as cheap labour, with some being paid as little as £1 per hour. The decision to give the firm a new £70 million eight-year contract to run Yarl's Wood has been criticised. Natasha Walter, of Women for Refugee Women, said "Serco is clearly unfit to manage a centre where vulnerable women are held and it is unacceptable the government continues to entrust Serco with the safety of women who are survivors of sexual violence."
Defence
Serco held defence contracts in 2004, including the UK Government's contract for the maintenance of the Ballistic Missile Early Warning System at RAF Fylingdales; contracts are also held for the operation and maintenance of RAF Brize Norton, RAF Halton, RAF Northolt[39] and RNAS Culdrose in the UK and RAF Ascension Island in the mid-Atlantic. Serco also provides support services to garrisons in Australia. Serco also manages many aspects of operations at the Defence College of Management and Technology in Shrivenham. Serco is one of three partners in the consortium which manages the Atomic Weapons Establishment. Serco also has a 15-year contract worth £400 million to provide facilities management services to the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl).
Serco Marine Services is responsible for fleet support at the three main UK naval bases, HMNB Portsmouth, HMNB Devonport and HMNB Clyde.
Aviation
Serco provides air traffic control services at international airports in the United Arab Emirates and at some smaller airports in the United States and Canada. Starting in 2004 Serco had a £5m a year contract from the US government to manage airports in Iraq for 18 months.[49] Serco also operate Scatsta Airport on Shetland. In June 2010 Serco signed a £4 million contract to operate all air traffic control services for Coventry Airport.
Health
Serco provide facilities management services at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, Leicester Royal Infirmary, Wishaw General Hospital and at Plymouth's Derriford Hospital.
The company had the contract for out-of-hours GP services in Cornwall from which it withdrew in December 2013 after the company left the county short of doctors. The company also said it would stop running Braintree hospital in Essex as it pulled out of managing GP services and large hospitals.
In health services, Serco's difficulties include the poor handling of pathology labs and fatal errors in patient records. At St Thomas' Hospital, the increase in the number of clinical incidents arising from Serco non-clinical management has resulted in patients receiving incorrect and infected blood, as well as patients suffering kidney damage due to Serco providing incorrect data used for medical calculations. A Serco employee later revealed that the company had falsified 252 reports to the National Health Service regarding Serco health services in Cornwall.
It emerged in November 2013, Serco, which won a contract for Suffolk Community Healthcare in 2012, had 72 vacancies after earlier cutting 137 posts. Problems identified by Ipswich and East Suffolk Clinical Commissioning Group include “staff capacity, skill mix, workload, succession planning and morale, training, communication, mobile working, care co-ordination centre processes, incidents and near miss incidents”.
In April 2014 Serco revealed that it would lose almost £18 million on three of its NHS contracts. The firm has made provisions for losses in its Braintree and Cornwall contracts, which were cancelled early. It has also made provisions for losses in its contract for services in Suffolk. The company claims it will take longer to deliver the operational efficiencies it hoped for, despite saying in May 2013 that it expected to make a profit on the three-year, £140 million contract for community services. It said that staff had not recorded activity accurately on the Electronic health record and that activity had increased significantly during the course of the contract.
In August 2014 it was reported that the company had decided to withdraw from the clinical health services market in the UK after a review of the cost of delivering “improved service levels” and meeting the performance requirements of several existing contracts.
On 24 October 2017, it was reported that Serco was preparing to buy healthcare contracts from facilities management business Carillion. The deal included 15 contracts, with annual revenues of approximately £90m, for which Serco would pay £47.7m, with Carillion losing £1bn from the value of its order book.
Education
Serco held a ten-year contract with Bradford City Council between 2001 and 2011 to manage and operate the local education authority, providing education support services to the city's schools. This period was marked with "real problems" according to senior council officials and was taken back in house by the local authority after this period. Serco similarly manages and operates Walsall[66] and Stoke-on-Trent local education authorities. Serco is one of Ofsted's three Regional Inspection Service Providers, responsible for school inspections in the English Midlands.
Leisure
Serco Leisure Operating Ltd. operates a number of leisure centres across the UK including Wet 'n' Wild in South Shields and the Manchester Aquatics Centre, the aquatic venue for the 2002 Commonwealth Games in Manchester.
Information technology
Serco administers the publicly funded UK Business Link website. It won a five-year tender in 2007 to run the IT Infrastructure for the London Borough of Southwark.
Waste
Serco operates waste collection services for local councils.
Outside the UK
Drivers' licensing
Serco, through a purpose-made division Serco DES, holds a ten-year, $114 million contract with the Province of Ontario to operate the province's DriveTest driver examination centres. These tests include vision, road, and knowledge tests for all persons seeking to become a licensed automobile driver in the province.
Parking meter servicing
Serco has a contract with the City of Chicago, Illinois, to enforce parking meter regulations.
Health in the United States
In July 2013 Serco was awarded a $1.25 billion contract to manage the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
Prisons and Justice
Serco runs partly privatised Hünfeld Prison in Hesse, Germany.
In Australia, Serco runs Acacia Prison in Western Australia and Borallon Correctional Facility in Queensland as well as the national contract for immigration detention centres, including Christmas Island and the Villawood detention centre in Sydney.
The Union of Christmas Island Workers highlighted the systemic failure by Serco to manage the Christmas Island Immigration Reception and Processing Centre. The centre detains a large number of refugees including 1,000 children. Under Serco, there has been an increase of deaths in custody, self-harm, and of Serco staff beating prisoners. As well, there has been a deterioration of facilities leading to the decline of the physical and the mental health of detainees and of staff. Ombudsman Allan Asher said on the Australian radio show AM, "In the first week of June when I visited Christmas Island, more than 30 incidents of self-harm by detainees held there were reported". Serco, in a staged memo leaked to The Australian, blamed the detainees for "creating a culture of self-harm", in order to use it as a "bargaining tool". The former manager of the Serco run detention centre stated the centre was grossly understaffed whereby it was "typically 15 staff members short every day".
In Auckland, New Zealand, Serco operated the Mount Eden remand prison and in March 2012 was awarded a contract to build and operate a 960-bed prison at Wiri. Serco was heavily criticized for the existence of 'fight clubs' within Mount Eden prison that were not investigated until after they became public knowledge on 16 July 2015 when footage emerged online and was reported by TVNZ. On 24 July 2015, Serco's contract to run the Mount Eden prison was revoked and operation was given back to the New Zealand Department of Corrections. Serco was ordered to pay $8 million to the New Zealand government as a result of problems at Mount Eden Prison while it was under Serco's management. The New Zealand government did not accept that this was a failure of governmental contracting and oversight. It brought in correctional officers from afar to provide adequate staffing at Mount Eden, and by December 2016 had spent NZ$2 million housing up to 40 of them in Auckland hotels.
Transport
From 1997, Serco ran Great Southern Rail in Australia. In March 2015, the business was sold to Allegro Funds.
Serco operates the Dubai Metro and Dubai Tram in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates. Serco formerly operated the Copenhagen Metro in Copenhagen, Denmark, with Ansaldo STS, until it sold its share with effect on 1 January 2008.
In Sydney, Serco has operated the Transport Info service since 1 July 2010.
It secured an eight-year contract in 2013 with its Swedish joint venture partner Strömma Tourism & Maritime (sv) to operate four Djurgården ferries on behalf of Stockholm County Council and public ferry company Waxholms Ångfartygs.
Offshore holdings in Mauritius
The 2017 Paradise Papers revealed that Appleby carried out a risk assessment of Serco and noted it had a "history of problems, failures, fatal errors and overcharging" and had faced allegations of fraud and cover-ups.
Anything look familiar on this helicopter? It's a Phoenix. This is even a part of their "Fire Services" division.

This company is undoubtedly the big player in the NWO agenda, connecting everything together under it's umbrella. If Trump is REALLY on OUR side, the people, he'll get rid of Serco's hold on America and the world if he can. If not, he's just another puppet.
I wonder what the significance of the drum set with the 50th on it is with the guitar smashed through it. Then there's still the Drone with the Amazon package, a bunch of other people I don't recognize including a picture of maybe a Frenchmen right next to the Singapore banner. Not sure who the black guy is behind Hilary and Merkel. Is that his hand above Putin's head? The woman in color between Putin and the Pied Piper. The Japanese (I think) man all the way in the back inbetween the black gentleman and the blonde Phoenix lady. The lady with the purple sash around her neck in between China and India. The guy directly to the right of her. Winston Churchill with the 2 fingers held up high in a bright blue suit and a red bow tie. And the white woman with glasses all the way on the right side, looking towards everything to the left. I think that's everything.
Anyone have any answers for these other people or other interpretations? Amazing how this was over 3 years ago and this stuff is coming true. I'm really starting to think that time travel or at least traveling to parallel universes is real.

2018.02.09 21:51 A_Gator_Actually Where is Melanie Metheny? [Unresolved Disappearance]

Hi all, typical disclaimer: this is my first time posting a new discussion here. I've lurked quite a bit so I think I know the drill but please let me know if I violate any of the guidelines. I know one other user has posted about her case recently. However, it is something I have spent a lot of time reading about and researching so I thought I'd share what I've learned. Melanie is one of many people who have gone missing in Appalachia without much word outside of local media. I hope that posting here will bring some more eyes to her case.
There are two very different stories about how Melanie Metheny went missing from Belle, West Virginia on July 19th, 2006. One is the official story released by the Kanawha County Sheriff's Office. This story is lacking in confirmed details and has left Melanie's family unsatisfied for over a decade. The second story exists online as a result of the family's frustrations and is supported by the rumor mill running through the area. With no progress from the police, Melanie's grandmother Sandra started a website and took to social media. Both of these online spaces have become gathering places for the rumors, but more importantly, as a place for the family to make public what they know about Melanie's last days. In most cases I am a skeptic and fan of confirmed, primary resources, however, I hope that by telling both stories here perhaps more eyes on the case can encourage progress or even attract the attention of someone in the true crime community who can work directly with the family to get their story out.
  
Background:
Melanie was born June 21, 1985 and grew up in Belle, West Virginia. She is described by her family as a quiet, friendly girl. Melanie attended Riverside High School and then Garnet Career Center, an adult education program, where she was preparing to attend college for nursing. According to Melanie's grandmother she was scheduled to begin college on August 2nd, 2006. She had three children, Ryan who was four at the time of her disappearance, Nathan who was two at the time, and Hannah who was just over a year old. Ryan's father is a man by the name of Michael Lilly who had been out of Melanie's life for some time. Melanie broke up with Nathan and Hannah's father Matthew Harper only a few months before her disappearance. She had begun dating a man named Jarrett Davis who lived about ten minutes away from Belle in the Campbell's Creek neighborhood area near Charleston. Melanie split her time between staying with Jarrett and the home she shared with her two teenage brothers in Belle. Despite her new relationship she remained close with Matt's family, including his mother Donna who the couple had lived with until they split up. It is unclear if Melanie was having any problems with Lilly, Harper, or Davis at the time she went missing.
Melanie was not known for having issues with people and so it was notable that a week before her disappearance she had an altercation with a teenage boy. When Melanie turned away, the boy picked up a large rock. Luckily, a friend of Melanie's warned her of the threat and the boy dropped the rock. The juvenile acquaintance had stolen Melanie's van about a month prior. While the van was ultimately returned to her with only minor damage, she remained upset about the incident - leading to the altercation when she saw the boy in the street.
  
The Official Story of the Disappearance of Melanie Metheny
On July 19, 2006 Jarrett Davis last saw Melanie before heading out to work at approximately 7am. Sometime between 7:00am and 8:00am Melanie dropped off her children at Country Kids Daycare located at 3000 W Dupont Avenue in Belle, West Virginia. Her plan for the day was to pick up transcripts from her adult education program in order to register for her first semester of classes with WVU. The two final calls from Melanie's cell phone were to a local auto body shop, Wreck-A-Mended Paint & Body, to discuss repairs to her minivan at 9:09am; and a call to her voicemail at approximately 9:30am. Jarrett attempted to call Melanie around noon, as he usually heard from her by that time of the day, but she did not answer. Around 6:00pm that evening Country Kids Daycare contacted Donna because Melanie had failed to pick up the children. At this time Melanie's grandmother became aware she was missing and alerted the authorities.
An unidentified witness described by police as "someone close to Melanie" stated that on the afternoon of her disappearance they saw a woman on the West Side of Charleston in a red SUV. The woman screamed, "what about my babies" as she struggled to exit the vehicle. The West End of Charleston has several pockets known for their criminal element and large amounts of drug dealing. Melanie's father Jimmy Metheny expressed surprise at the idea that she would be in that area. Police were never able to locate the SUV or identify its owners.
On July 21st, 2006 police, canine units, and rescue crews responded to Spring Fork Drive in the area of Witcher Creek, only about fifteen miuntes from the daycare center where Melanie left her children. They were lead to the area by a tip that was never disclosed to the public. The police reported nothing was found in the search.
On July 23rd, 2006 Melanie's gold and tan 1998 Chevrolt Ventura with WV State license plate US8255 was located at the intersection of Wyoming Street and Beuhring Avenue in Charleston, a spot also in the West End. The police responded and checked the vehicle. It was undamaged, locked, and all that was missing from inside were Melanie's purse and cell phone. The police have stated that the van was wiped of fingerprints. Inside the van police found a business card and a note about a home that was for sale with a phone number. The business card was for a Belle police officer. It was reported to be connected to a police report Melanie had filed when a woman threatened her over speeding through a neighborhood. People living in the area stated that the van had been parked in the same spot since approximately 2:00pm on July 19th. Apparently it had been several days before anyone realized that it might have a connection to Melanie's disappearance.
Police report that they conducted hundreds of interviews, followed up on every tip they received, and reviewed thousands of phone records. Regardless of these efforts, Melanie's case quickly went cold. Finally in fall 2013 Melanie's family and the community were given hope when it was reported that the Kanawha County Sheriff's Office could have a lead in her disappearance. A woman by the name of Cindy Creathers was arrested along with a drug dealer by the name of Joey Keith Jeffrey. They were charged with kidnapping and beating a women, Leanna Quinn, near Witcher Creek in December 2012 over a drug debt. Creathers ultimately struck a deal to testify against Jeffrey in exchange for a five year prison sentence. As she spoke about the incident she stated that Jeffrey had threatened Quinn saying, "Remember Melanie Metheny? I'll put you in the same hole I put her in". The Kanawha County Sheriff's Office stated that they questioned Jeffrey regarding Melanie's disappearance and consider him a person of interest.
There have been no further developments in Melanie's case.

The Unofficial Story of the Disappearance of Melanie Metheny
This story is put together from information taken from the links below. Much of it contains rumors although many details posted on the guestbook of Melanie's webpage appear to be endorsed by her family. Some of the information is contradictory or inconsistent. I have not made any attempt to verify the information with the family. However I believe they would be happy to do so with someone who has a genuine interest in bringing wider attention to Melanie's disappearance and bringing her home. I decided to include this version of the story because small details that had me scratching my head are answered by some of the information provided in these links. Why the Kanawha County Sheriff's Office has not released more details in this case is open to interpretation but I feel their tight lips have contributed to Melanie's story falling by the wayside. Obviously Topix is Topix, so take what you read there with a grain of salt.
Melanie celebrated her 21st birthday on June 21, 2006 by throwing a party on top of a furniture store in Belle. Rumors state there was the typical drinking and supposedly some drug use, possibly harder stuff like cocaine and meth at the party. Eventually a disagreement broke out. Melanie's family believes this was the beginning of the trouble that would end in her disappearance.
On July 19, 2006 around 7:20am Melanie left Jarrett Davis' home in Campbell Creek with Nathan, Hannah, and Jarrett's daughter Harlie (who was approximately nine years old at the time). According to her grandmother Melanie was not a morning person and very seldom left the house that early. She drove Harlie to her grandmother's house on Dry Branch Road where she spoke with Harlie's grandmother and Jarrett's younger sister, Blair. Blair recalls speaking with Melanie. They discussed Melanie returning to Jarrett's home to pick up a swimming suit so Harlie could go to the water park that day. Melanie did not appear to be in a hurry, or troubled, and she mentioned something about picking up her transcripts from Garnet Career Center. (This is a contentious topic with Melanie's grandmother, who claims that Melanie's transcripts had actually already been delivered to West Virginia University since she was scheduled to start classes on August 2nd, 2006.) Melanie then left the home and drove to Country Kids Daycare to drop off her two youngest children. One the way she stopped at a convenience store and purchased two small drinks for the kids. Shortly before 8:00am Melanie dropped the kids off at the daycare where the staff didn't notice anything amiss.
As soon as she left the daycare center, Melanie headed down Midland Avenue in Belle to pick up her younger half sister at the home she shared with her two brothers. Allegedly Melanie had been asking her close family friend and half sister to stay with her that day, possibly because she was scared for her life. But for some reason Melanie never made it to the house. Multiple witnesses reported seeing her van turn back around, heading away from the home and back towards the daycare center, also the direction towards Jarrett's home in Campbell's Creek. By now it is approximately 8:10am. It is from this point that Melanie seems to have disappeared for good.
The family has stated that both of the women Melanie had asked to accompany her that day were threatened. In particular, Melanie's half sister left West Virginia for an extended period of time after her disappearance. It is unclear if she has ever given a reason for her time out of town.
According to the family, Matthew Harper worked at Air Gas in West End and is the one who told the story about the woman screaming "what about my babies" and struggling to exit the van. Air Gas is located about five minutes west of the location where Melanie's van was discovered days later. Two other unidentified individuals also witnessed a "messed up" looking girl being pulled into a red SUV and have said they believe the girl was Melanie.

What happened to Melanie Metheny?
Why isn't the Kanawha County Sheriff's Office releasing more information about her disappearance, even to her own family?
What else could be done to gather information and finally bring Melanie home?

2017.12.01 10:44 emkael [F1 History Project] "Grand Prix" racing in Eastern Bloc countries

Let's start with some obvious statements.
The first time Formula One cars roamed the circuits of Eastern Bloc countries was 1986, at Hungaroring. The first (and only) Grand Prix winner from Poland is Robert Kubica. The Soviets never competed in F1 machinery.
If all these sound natural enough for you, it's okay. It just means you're in for a better ride than you've expected. Welcome to the world of open-wheel racing in communist countries.

Happy days

It all began way before the Second World War, because of course it had to. At the time, all the divisions you could project on the current shape of Europe weren't yet in place. The rich of the West were rich, and the rich of the East were still existent.
And hobbies of the rich, regardless of their origin, included racing fast cars. The aristocracy indulged themselves (and thousands of spectators) by racing throughout the Europe, in more or less organized ways. A lot of that aristocracy was also based in what would have later become the Eastern Bloc countries.
More and more cities attracted the racing circus, among them eastern cities, for example the then-Polish Lviv. The inaugural Grand Prix Miasta Lwowa (City of Lviv GP) attracted a small field of cars (just 4 GP and 4 voiturettes), but among these, créme de la créme of European racing scene - factory Mercedes of Hans Stuck and the Alfa Romeo of Rudolf Caracciola. Manfred von Brauchitsch was also on the initial entry list, but did not show up.
In the early 30s, Masaryk Circuit opened near Brno in Czechoslovakia. This put the annual Masarykův Okruh, later Velká Cena Masarykova (Masaryk Grand Prix) permanently on the map of Grand Prix racing. Though never a championship race (be it Grandes Épruves, or the pre-War European Championship), its success was far greater than the Lviv race. Names like Chiron, Fagioli, Wimille, Pietsch, von Brauchitsch, Varzi, Nuvolari, Taruffi, Stuck or Caracciola and literally every imaginable racing brand of the times were commonly associated with the race. The event also had its fair share of tragedy, like the fatal practice accident of one Jozef Brázdil, a name which you may vaguely recall if you followed the excellent quiz series by Fart_Leviathan.
As you can see, the specifics of pre-War GP racing allowed the locals to directly interact with sport's greatest names. This was mainly caused by the culture of customer racing. Rich and powerful were able to afford hiring customer drivers to drive their entries or could simply buy their own customer cars and after hiring an engineering crew. The notion of compact and consistent nation states was not entirely a fully established idea back then, which also contributed to these gentleman drivers going from race to race of simply having fun. The biggest brand associated with that customer racing culture, and possibly the ultimate customer car project throughout the history, was Bugatti.
These last two aspects are especially visible in the career of count Stanislas Czaykowski. He was a Polish aristocrat. However, he was born abroad (in the times when Poland was not on the map of Europe, but not even on Polish soil), he (tragically) died abroad, spent most of the time in Paris, but - not uncommonly - identified himself with the roots of Polish aristocracy. He raced under the Polish flag. And, oh boy, raced he did. His international career exclusively consisted of driving various Bugatti car - from the T35/T37s to the T51 and T54. And despite taking part in only 3 Grandes Épruves (finishing 4th and on the lead lap in his first, the 1930 French GP), he enjoyed much success in the non-championship Grands Prix. Czaykowski won the 1931 Casablanca Grand Prix, mostly due to him being to only one driving a T51 in a field full of T35/T37s (including future full-time World Championship driver, Philippe Étancelin). The following year, he added victories in the highest 2000cc class of the inaugural Provence Trophy, beating Louis Trintignant, Maurice's brother, and in the lower category of Commignes Grand Prix. His final victory came in 1933, in the British Empire Trophy on the notorious Brooklands circuit. Czaykowski's career ended tragically the same year, during one of the darkest days of pre-War motor sports. The 1933 Italian Grand Prix was held at Monza on September 10th, on the full double-loop 10km layout of the Autodromo. Fagioli took the victory in his Alfa Romeo, over Nuvolari in a Maserati, in a race which would go unnoticed in the history books if it wasn't for what happened later that day. The support event, Gran Premio di Monza, was held on the oval variant of the circuit over 3 qualifying heats and a final, all 14 laps each. Czaykowski won the first heat, which featured Carlo Trossi's Dusenberg retiring with mechanical failure. The oil from Trossi's car spilled on the South Curve, which proved crucial to what happened in the second heat. On the first lap, approaching the South Curve, Giuseppe Campari lost control of his Scuderia Ferrari Alfa Romeo and slid off the track. It's said it was mostly due to any oil which could have remained from Trossi's incident, but Campari's attempt to scrub the weight of his car by removing front brakes might have contributed, too. He was followed off the track by Baconin Borzacchini from whom he'd just taken the lead of the race, and two more drivers. Campari was killed instantly, while Borzacchini - lying with a broken back next to his Maserati - was transported to the hospital, but didn't survive much longer. With two of the greatest drivers of their times dead, the event was already named Black Sunday (and became the event which famously influenced Enzo Ferrari's approach to his drivers). But in the final, Czaykowski put a final sombre footnote to the events of 1933 Monza Grand Prix. Leading the race, 9 laps in, the engine of his Bugatti T54 gave up. Unsighted from the smoke, Czaykowski crashed from the track at the same South Curve which already claimed two lives that day, in a giant fireball. He raced among the greatest, and died among the greatest.
While Czaykowski's story is not really directly connected to the Eastern countries (though I hope you'll excuse my taking the liberty of telling it), it must be said that the count did not have much opportunity to tie his career more closely with Poland. As he entered the European racing stage, his home country was declining in a crisis which effectively ended all motor sport-related activities in Poland. There was a man, though, who had more luck and was quite successful in not only representing his country, but also bringing world-class motor sport to his homeland. It is arguably the biggest star of pre-War racing in the Central/Eastern Europe - a Hungarian named Ládiszlav "László" Hartmann. Hartmann started his international career around the same time as Czaykowski, in a very similar way - by racing customer Bugattis. After two rather uneventful years (the highlight of these being voiturette class victory in the mentioned inaugural Lviv GP) in GP racing, sharing his time between GP/voiturette races and other motor sport activities, such as hill climbs, he started to make a much stronger impact on the scene. He didn't hesitate to race among the biggest names and while looking purely at the numbers, his career was not as fruitful as Czaykowski's, he usually contested in much stronger field of rivals. His performance allowed him to climb up the ladder of customer racing - gradually using his connections to upgrade his cars, from the T35B in his first years, to the proper racing beast of T51 later on. Finally, in 1934 he managed to get Maserati to lend him one of the 180PS - a significant step up from the Bugattis, which slowly faded in the technical race. This also allowed Hartmann to commit to Maserati in the final years of his career. Some class podiums and victories (3rd place in the 1936 Commignes GP or a victory in a Romanian international race) established his name among the European circus. This resulted in another customer deal, closely related to one of Hartmann's greatest achievements - one that wasn't fought out on the track, though. His reputation prompted the Hungarian motor sport regulating body - Royal Hungarian Automobile Club - to appoint him as a person who would negotiate with AIACR (International Association of Recognized Automobile Clubs, as the FIA was known back then) on the subject of a Grand Prix race in Hungary. On 21st of June, 1936, a twisty park circuit of Népliget in Budapest, welcomed a field of 11 cars, including a three-car factory effort of Auto Union C-Types (driven by Stuck, Varzi and Rosemeyer), three-car factory effort of Mercedes-Benz W25Ks (Chiron, von Brauchitsch and Caracciola), Scuderia Ferrari outfit of Alfas, led by Nuvolari - and of course the local hero in his Maserati 8CM. Hartmann had just returned from the Eiffelrennen, held just 6 days earlier, so rather unprepared left the spotlights to the big boys. As it was not uncommon in these days, German factory team were favourites for the race, yet it was Nuvolari who took the victory, leading Rosemeyer and Varzi, while Mercedes drivers retired with various problems. Interestingly, Nuvolari's winning Alfa Romeo 8C-35 was designed by Vittorio Jano, born Viktor János - to a family of Hungarian immigrants in Italy. Hartmann was the last of the finishers at 7th, completing 44 laps of the 50-lap race - but his red-white-green national colours-liveried Maserati did finish the race, to crowd's delight. Although it was the only Hungarian Grand Prix held until the 1986 World Championship return of the event, Hartmann gained another fan - in Tazio Nuvolari, and a deal with Maserati to provide Hartmann with his '34 6C was reached. That meant the now Hungarian-coloured car could finally enter the "big boys" 1.5-litre supercharged category. In 1937, he was the best of non-Mercedes or Auto Union finishers at the German GP, and essentially became semi-factory driver for Maserati (the closest direct comparison to his status would be today's factory-backed satellite team rider of MotoGP). In early 1938, as the GP class moved to a 3-litre formula, he returned to his smaller Maserati 4CM and entered what turned out to be his final race, at the then-fastest track in the world, at the Tripoli GP, in the voiturette class. The race controversially run both GP and voiturette classes together, and after a chaotic start the field was all mixed up. 13 laps into the race, Nino Farina in a GP Alfa Romeo Tipo 312, approached Hartmann to lap him for the second time. What happened next, is not entirely clear. Some sources say Hartmann lost control trying to get out of Farina's way, cut a corner and two drivers collide. Others claim it was Farina who nudged Hartmann into the spin. The outcome was clear, though - László Hartmann broke his back and succumbed to the injuries from the accident.
If you'd like to catch a glimpse of the amalgamate that GP racing was in pre-War Eastern countries, you should do yourselves a favour and visit the National Technical Museum the next time you're in Prague. It's just a short walk away through a park from the Hradčany castle, high on the banks of Vltava. In the "Transportation" exhibition, you can enjoy, among many others, the oldest Audi-branded car in existence, a Bugatti T51, and a Caracciola 1939 German GP winner of Mercedes W154. On how that last one actually got there - that's the story for the next chapter.

Son of the Boss

Then came the war. The war came, the war went and it left Europe with a brand new set of geopolitical divisions. Most of them did not make any sense, from a pre-War point of view. These that interest us the most, are of course in the westernmost territories of a newly-formed Eastern Bloc. Czechoslovakia, Hungary, even Poland were mainly in a German or Austrian field of influence before the war. Now, they're all suddenly under communist rule. Same goes for the Baltic states of Latvia or Estonia, previously closely connected to the Nordic states, enjoying a short stint of independence, yet now being part of the USSR. Not to mention the Democratic Republic of Germany, or East Germany for short, obviously. Countries, as already shown, with substantial racing traditions and potential.
The fall of the Nazis meant as well that something had to be done with Nazi technology, including racing projects of Auto Union and Mercedes. Mercedes were fortunate enough to be located under French influence (initially) and then in the US occupation zone which formed what we know as West Germany. The only problem for the reformed factory, was the retrieval of pre-War tech. As the Allies marched through Europe, the cars were hidden all over the nearby territories. One of the more popular channels was Czechoslovakia - that's how the Caracciola W154 ended up in Prague - but it must be said that this destination led to significant part of the Silver Arrows fleet to captured by the Soviets. Fortunately, this did not cause any major disturbance for the Stuttgart brand and they were able to return to motor sport, and triumphantly, not that long after the war.
Auto Union was not that fortunate. In a tragic turn of events, the pre-War base, located in Saxony, did not manage to survive the post-War cut. Ferdinand Porsche, the father of Auto Union's racing program, was being submitted as a war criminal and was barred from returning to Stuttgart. The company base in Chemnitz and Zwickau was basically dismantled. The original Auto Union broke back up after over 10 years. A reformed company was established in the West German town of Ingolstadt and later merged with NSU to form what now is known as Audi. Audi owns up to the pre-War Auto Union heritage (well, they've started to do so after decades of association with more down to earth technology, and transitioned from "the company that made Quattro" to high-performance endurance racing team) and does so with class (behold, "the last Auto Union factory driver", better known as Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason, running through East Midlands in an Typ D). But the East German base of Auto Union was gone. The technology was pillaged by the Soviets and the remains of the company were left to produce motor bikes. One of Auto Union's mother companies, DKW was moved from Zschopau to Chemnitz, to later merge back with a Zschopau factory to form Motorenwerke Zschopau - MZ, to which we'll come back later in the story. The cars, in contrast to the motorcycles, were scattered all around the Eastern Bloc and only decades later tales of heroic retrieval and restoration would surface.
Auto Union technology in the hands of the Soviets was mainly lost and forgotten. It would have been much, much worse, if it wasn't for one man with a passion. That man's name - Vasily Dzhugashvili - may sound familiar. And it should, as he was a son of Joseph Dzhugashvili, better known as Joseph Stalin. Between being an aircraft pilot, a chronic drunk and what could only be described as some primitive form of pickup artist, Vasily was also an avid motor sport enthusiast. His dream was to bring global motor sport glory to the USSR and as he's been the son of a pretty powerful person (and proved not to hesitate to use his position), he started to make this dream come true. Left in the Auto Union R&D facilities, in Chemnitz, were the plans, and possibly even prototypes, of the pre-War Typ E project. Typ E was designed to follow the newly-drawn regulations which were meant to replace GP formula after the 1939 season. The same 1.5-litre supercharged formula which in the post-War motor sport was the foundation of Formula One. Stalin Jr. ordered the project to be maintained in the Chemnitz factory. Once the international formula changed in 1951/52, causing the World Championship to be held under Formula Two regulations, he also ordered to accommodate the Typ E project to F2 requirements, a 2.0-litre naturally aspired engine formula. The Sokol project was in place.
Two Sokol ("falcon") cars were made, and the project was named Awtowelo 650, after a BMW-owned factory from Eisenach which was formally in charge of manufacturing the cars. The car itself share some common DNA with Porsche Cisitalia project. It is of course understandable, as Auto Union's plans were developed by Herr Porsche and Cisitalia showed up as a continuation of these plans (interestingly - it was the car that got Porsche out of prison after the War, as profits from the design were used to bail him out and redeem him in the eyes of Allied forces in charge of Stuttgart factories). Both Awtowelo cars were tested on German highways, and later on roads near Moscow. Unfortunately, they were very unreliable and never raced, apart from a single unsuccessful attempt at national level. But it is, without a doubt, a proof that the Soviet had a vehicle that was conforming to the 1952-1953 Formula Two (so, World Championship) regulations, and quite possibly to the 1948-1951 Formula One regulations. One of these cars was presented during the 2003 Goodwood Festival of Speed, under Auto Union original branding, as an "1948 Awtowelo 650 Auto Union". The other - probably shared the fate of all the other Auto Union tech in the USSR. Tragically, these marvelous pieces of machinery ended up in sheds all over the Soviet Union, literally turned to scrap and used as parts for some future cars, like the ZIL series of racers.
Note that stories of what happened to all these cars after the war, and how they've resurfaced in the modern world, are probably more exciting then the cars themselves - I highly recommend reading up on them from more thorough sources, which I mention at the end of this piece.

The collective takes over

1953 marked the definitive end of the Awtowelo project, because of two main reasons. Firstly, international racing matured enough to go to the proposed 2.5-litre naturally aspirated Formula One for the World Championship. That meant it was no longer achievable for the Sokol to conquer the global motor sport scene. But secondly, Stalin Sr. was dead - which meant that Stalin Jr. lost all of his influence on anyone who could make his dream possible. As mentioned, Awtowelo and Auto Union tech ended up in the scrap yards and shed.
But top-level, open-wheel racing in the Soviet Union was not exclusively consisting of one man's vision. Soon after, in the late 50s, the Central Automobile Club of the USSR (CAMK) was formed. It was a proper sports federation, with all its bureaucratic consequences common to the communist and post-communist sports unions, including the redistribution of wealth which later proved fatal to any high-tech racing projects.
In 1956, the CAMK became a member of the FIA. Soviet officials were invited to see some F1 World Championship races and returned home with heads full of ideas. They've aimed to recreate the international formulae ladder on a national, and then Eastern Bloc, level.
At first, in 1959/1960, a full ladder of 6(!) racing levels was conceived: Soviet Formula 1, Soviet Formula 2, Soviet Formula 3, Soviet Formula 4, Soviet Formula 5 and... yes, of course, Soviet Formula Junior. Not all of these series were launched at once. For example F2, which was meant to launch together with F1 in 1960, did not run due to lack of eligible engines available to the participants. The only season of F2 that happened under the original regulations (750cc), was 1962. The regulation changes for 1964 (1000cc cars with minimum weight of 420kg) did not help the series, neither did another change in 1966 (1600cc engines) - the next F2 season was held in 1971, and then the series run for 4 seasons, with another 2 seasons of including F2 races in other Soviet championships, before finally folding in 1977. Soviet Formula 3 was lucky enough to have an impressive uninterrupted run from 1960 to 1987, when it stepped out to give room for Formula Vostok (Formula Easter) and Formula Mondial. Its popularity was caused by the engine regulations which initially permitted units up to 500c. That meant the lightweight motorcycle engines could be used, and with good effects. In later years, the regulations were gradually loosened, ending up with a 2-litre formula in 1978. Formula 4 did not have that luck. At first, it was supposed to serve as a direct feeder series to F3 - inheriting its regulations in 1964, as F3 engine capacities doubled. This was soon increased to 750cc in 1965, and in 1966 an elaborate engine displacement/weight compensation scheme was devised to keep to series afloat, unsuccessfully. F4 resurfaces in 1968, this time as a 350cc formula - a limit which stayed until the very end of the series in 1981, with 1976-1979 not held. Only 3 proper seasons of Formula 5 were held - 1961, 1964 and 1965, all to a 1.5-litre formula. The series briefly returned in 1968, in a 2.5-litre version and for that year, it replaced Soviet Formula 1. As for Formula Junior, the series was meant to follow the international regulations for Formula Junior as closely as possible, and become incorporated in the global scheme of FJ series. The international limit of 1000/1100cc was not exactly achievable for the inaugural 1960 season, due to lack of eligible engines, so it was increased to 1360cc - just enough to accommodate the popular 1357cc Moskvich 407 engine. However, the proper 1000/1100cc formula (with different weight limits for both displacements) was put in place for 1961. The series run until 1963, using compact and widely available 990cc Wartburg engines. After 1963, global series folded to make place for F3 and F4, so Soviet Formula Junior ended as well.
The highest tier of Soviet racing series, Soviet Formula 1, was by far the most ambitious. It was aiming to be what international F1 was to the global motor sport - a field where technical innovation and high-end construction work competes, all obviously to praise the Soviet Union's glory. It began in 1960, aligned with the global 2.5-litre regulations. When the 1.5-litre formula was adapted in the World Championship, it took SF1 until 1963 to converge. The series was not sanctioned by the FIA, but - in a similar fashion to South African F1 series and Aurora F1 series in Britain - it adapted roughly the same sporting and technical regulations. Near the end of its run (in 1976), SF1 slowly evolved toward Formula Libre category, being a catch-all series for vehicles unsuitable for any other category (at that time - F3 or Formula Vostok). Notable freak entries include a car equipped with a 10-year-old 7-litre ZIL-112S engine. The final 1976 season was basically a merger of F1 and F2, accommodating entries from both categories.
Although on paper that ladder may look impressive, in reality all these events were grouped into what can be called "seasons" of "races" only by most liberal definitions. The seasons usually consisted of 3-4 rounds, sometimes even ending up with a single race. Entry lists were as short as 10 entries, despite CAMK's attempts to run the series in an accessible fashion. It quickly became obvious that the series cannot keep up with the technical evolution of the First World. The brightest example of that trend took place in 1970. Yuri Andreyev entered a contemporary customer F3 chassis of the Italian constructor De Sanctis, equipped with a Ford-Cosworth engine, into the SF1 championship - and dominated the only round, hosted in Minsk. This of course did not please the officials - and in a reactionary move, the entry fees for non-Soviet cars were dramatically increased for subsequent seasons. This ended the illusion of Soviet formulae being competitive against Western counterparts and cemented Soviet series' isolationist destiny.
The obvious struggle to maintain consistent and high-level regulations for Soviet formulae benefited another major Eastern Bloc racing undertaking - the Friendship of Socialist Countries Cup. It began on the initiative of Polish Motorsport Union, in 1963. These days, a lot of minor national series staged their races and championships, to follow the newly-established Soviet ladder. It quickly became obvious that these minor series hold much more promise than the high-level SF1/SF2, due to accessibility of the regulations. The regulations themselves became very fragmented over time, resulting in localized formulae, like the Polish 70s Formula Polonia or East German-based Formula Melkus - its roots were in the early 60s Formula Junior, for which East German privateer Heinz Melkus built popular chassis with the aforementioned 990cc Wartburg engine, racing them himself, and in the later seasons head-to-head with his son, Ulli. But FSCC seemed to always be there, to connect racing drivers from different socialist countries and field them against each other. There was no problem with the formula - as the most popular and accessible sets of regulations were adopted for the single-seater part of FSCC (which, from 1971 incorporated a touring cars cup, too). Inaugural 1963 season involved drivers invited by the Polish: from East Germany and Hungary, and run to Formula Junior spec. Once Formula Junior folded, the regulations of its successor - F3 - were accepted, and drivers from Bulgaria were also invited to join, followed by other Eastern Bloc nations soon afterwards. Series hosted rounds in each of the participating countries. Apart from individual cup, race results counted toward nations' cup classification. Series run to F3 regulations until 1971, when inevitably a common set of local regulations to replace F3 emerged, forming Formula Vostok. In the last two runnings of the series, on the verge of Iron Curtain fall (rise?) in 1989-1990, the series adopted Formula Mondial regulations. These years, the officials tried to break up with the exclusive socialist ideology of the series, and connect with Western drivers - but this did not help the series much, and it folded after 1990.
Needless to say, the philosophy of sports competition in the communist countries did not include particular praise for the individuals that raced. The drivers were pretty much anonymous, they were there for the glory of their club, region, country and the entire socialist system. Highly successful names, like Melkus, Andreyev, Kozankov, Jilek, Lim, Kazakov, Terenetski don't really ring any bells today. The line-up of the top runners also changed substantially from year to year.
But the cars - there were some ambitious pieces of machinery. At least three cars (or four, depending on how you count them) conformed to the global F1 regulations the year they were raced. This meant they could have served the original goal that was behind these designs - and could have been entered in an actual, global, World Championship F1 race. Two of these came from academic research centers (underlining the state-funded nature of USSR racing): 1967 KhADI-8 (Kharkivskiy Awtomobilno-Dorozhny Institut, Kharkiv Automobile and Highway Institute), which by 1971 evolved into KhADI-10, and 1973 MADI-01 (same abbreviation, only from Moscow). Both these projects had some promise in them, they were decent chassis-wise, but criminally underpowered. In 1971, KhADI was entered into SF1, with a 2-litre V8 engine which produced around 300bhp. It was estimated, though, that with a proper Western racing engine, the car itself could the take the fight to some customer Marches or Brabhams of early 70s. MADI was even less competitive. Inspired by the Lotus 72, the car looked like a miniature version of the iconic car. Yet once again, it was the lack of horses what prevented it from going anywhere. A 3-litre stock-block Volga engine gave it only 125bhp, a quarter of the estimates for Cosworth DFV which by then ruled international F1. Both these cars had no success even on the domestic stage - while MADI (here depicted in full-winged configuration) was winning minor races left and right, its constructor and driver, Stanislav Gess-de-Kalve, failed to make any impact on the SF1 races, losing to popular customer Estonia entries, which were far more reliable and easier to maintain. KhADI lost out to Estonias and Moskivches, in 1971-72, too.
The most promising design of them all came the earliest, from the mentioned Moskvich racing program. Contrasting with the academic endeavours of MADI and KhADI, Moskivich "G" series came from a renowned Soviet car manufacturer. First Moskvich "G" car, the G1, arrived way before the championship ladder was established, in 1955 and inspiration from the pre-War racing cars, and Sokol project, was clearly visible. Same went for the streamlined G2, which looked like some kind of a stoned Pixar character. From then on, the program seemed out of sync with its main goal - producing a car that could compete with Western cars in F1. For example, in 1961, when international races have already been dominated by the mid-engine revolution, Moskvich produced its first front-engined racer, the G3. Only in 1964/65, Moskvich series started to line up with contemporary trends. The G4, and its second version of G4A, started resembling Western chassis, like the Lotus 25. G4A was very successful in SF1, and the goal was set - the next Moskivich was supposed to conquer the world.
Together with the G5 research, a dedicated engine project was launched. First version of the G5, tested as early as in 1965, but gone racing in late 1968, was equipped with an V8 1.5-litre GD-1 engine, producing, for now, around 200bhp. The car itself used state of the art facilities, such as a full-size wind tunnel of the MZMA labs in Moscow, and its body was built from fibreglass, not aluminium as its predecessors. Compared to the Lotus 49 of that era, G5 had little to be ashamed of. Despite early lack of success (in the '68 SF1), everything looked promising. Next year, domestic results came. But then, strangely, the funds were retracted from the project. Compromises had to be made - an older inline-4 Moskvich 412 engine had to be fitted into the chassis, giving up almost half of the original power output. The dream of going against imperialist scum was basically over. Evolutions of the G5, such as G5M ruled the SF1 for the next 4-5 years, before more aero-aware chassis took over.
The other racing car brand worth mentioning is Estonia. Estonia cars kept winning in all of Soviet formulae, throughout their entire history. The first Estonia car from 1958, surprisingly named Estonia 1 was a privately-made Formula Junior chassis with a sidecar motorcycle IMZ engine. When CAMK installed the official formulae ladder in the USSR, TARK (Estonia's producer) were hired to design and provide customer cars to be used in the newly-formed championships. Over the years, Estonia cars followed the general trends of international racing car design, and produces many successful cars on the Soviet and Eastern Bloc scene. The company basically became communist countries' Dallara, over 1000 chassis were made in the 30 years of supplying Soviet championships. TARKs were also meant to be exported for use in Western feeder formulae. This did not happen though, because of both the uncompetitiveness of engines and the inability to keep the chassis up to date, aerodynamically. Only in 1989, long after the last purpose-made Estonia was designed, a TARK-branded car - TARK Aleko JK173 - appeared in German Formula 3 championship. Apart from the branding, though, the car had very little to do with the original TARK machinery. The final Estonia car, the 21 from 1981, was not really a bad design, though. TARK managed to keep up with the trends and built a car incorporating ground effects. Various evolutions of the 21 were used in the FSCC up until its folding in 1990.
What did the communists race on? Road circuits. Closed-off highway sections, airports, street circuits, hill-climb courses. Purpose-built racetracks were rare, as they were hard to maintain over the years. Some of them, though, like the Polish tracks of Kielce or Poznań are still functional and serve local and educational purposes. The temporary spirit of Soviet racing circuits lives on, for example in the 1000km of Palanga, first run on a public highway in Lithuania in 2000.
In a blatant karmagrabDue to the character limit of the post, the rest is in the comments.

2017.10.11 14:47 assessment_bot [ Fatal(1) ] [ 10/01/2017 ] BRANTLY B 2B, Midland/ MI

On October 1, 2017, at 1447 eastern daylight time, a Brantly B-2B helicopter, N2284U, was substantially damaged during landing in an open field near Midland, Michigan. The pilot sustained fatal injuries and the passenger sustained minor injuries. The helicopter was registered to Attitude Toys, Inc. and operated by the pilot as a 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight. Day visual meteorological conditions prevailed. The flight was not operated on a flight plan. The local flight originated from the same open field shortly before the accident.
A witness reported flying with the accident pilot from the Jack Barstow Airport (KIKW), about 10 miles east-northeast from the accident site, earlier in the day. The pilot landed near the southwest corner of the field in order to attend a family gathering at a home adjoining the field. This witness stated that some minor turbulence was encountered, but that the flight was otherwise uneventful.
The passenger stated that during the gathering, he decided to take a flight around the field with the pilot. He recalled that the helicopter "shook" a little on takeoff, which he thought was related to local winds. He noted that the tail of the helicopter started to "sway" as they flew over the house located along the east edge of the field, but that the pilot subsequently steadied the helicopter. Near the northeast corner of the field, the helicopter began descending, slowly at first and then more rapidly. He again attributed this to local wind conditions. The rotor speed increased, but the helicopter impacted the ground and subsequently rolled onto its left side before coming to rest. He added that the engine did not quit and that he turned it off with the ignition/magneto key after the accident.
The field was about 900 feet (north to south) by 800 feet (east to west). The accident flight departed from near the southwest corner of the field. The home the helicopter flew over was located along the eastern edge of the field, about 300 feet from the northern boundary. The accident site was located at the north boundary of the field, which was about 0.16 mile north-northeast from the departure point. The helicopter came to rest on its left side oriented on a northwesterly bearing.
