    The battle for Bakhmut has descended into a hell-scape reminiscent of the First World War as Putin throws troops into a fight described as 'a meat grinder'.   Russia is pounding Ukrainian trenches in the city - once home to 70,000 but now little more than a ruin - day and night with artillery before troops charge into front-on attacks against machine-gun nests. The no-mans land between the frontlines is now littered with shell holes, the skeletons of trees shredded by shell-fire, and the bodies of dead soldiers in eerie echoes of Passchendaele, Ypres or the Somme more than 100 years ago.  'They are just meat to Putin,' a commander named Kostyantyn told the FT on a visit to the front, 'and Bakhmut is a meat grinder. For what? A f***ing metre of our land.' A Ukrainian soldier wounded on the face by a piece of artillery shrapnel is brought to a hospital near the frontline in Bakhmut The soldier is treated by medics, with reports suggesting that both Ukraine and Russia are suffering heavy losses around the city RELATED ARTICLES Previous...

    Mike Pence criticized Joe Biden's stewardship of the economy but avoided any criticism of Donald Trump, who had called him a 'human conveyor belt' for failing to reject what he said were fraudulent votes in the 2020 election. 'Tough economic times are upon us,' Pence said Monday during a speech to the University Club of Chicag, which he used as  an indictment of Biden's presidency. 'The economic woes now upon us have been caused almost single handedly by one person,' he said.  And, he warned, Americans 'know there will be more economic pain to come.' Pence, who is exploring a 2024 presidential bid, called for a 'change of direction.'  'The truth is, a majority of Americans know the President Biden's economic policies have failed utterly and completely and it is time for a change of direction for America,' he said. Pence, in a speech that could be seen as a campaign platform, slammed Biden for the high gas prices facing the country, inflation, and the baby formula shortage. 'The Biden administration has squandered American prosperity faster than any other administration in...
    Former President Donald Trump renewed his attacks on his former vice president on Friday, dismissing Mike Pence as a 'human conveyor belt' for failing to reject what he said were fraudulent votes in the 2020 election. It came at the end of a week that revealed more evidence of the way he and his allies tried and failed to persuade Pence to overturn the result.   The House January 6 committee released testimony of a White House official saying that Trump called Pence a 'wimp.' Trump tore into the hearings as a 'show trial' in his most sustained attack on the committee since it began its investigation into the attack on the U.S. Capitol.  'I don't even know who these people are. But I never called Mike Pence a wimp,' he told a gathering of religious conservatives in Nashville, Tennessee. 'I never called him a wimp. Mike Pence had a chance to be great. 'He had a chance to be frankly historic. 'But just like Bill Barr and the rest of these weak people, Mike - and I say it sadly...
    AS anyone who's ever shopped at Aldi knows, the checkout process can be a stressful one. The cashiers have time limits for each customer, so are instructed to scan the products as quickly as possible - thrusting them to the end of the conveyor belt for the customer to hurriedly shove in a bag. 2If you struggle with the speed the Aldi cashiers work at, read on for some top tipsCredit: Alamy But Aldi customers have now come together to share their top tips for making checkout less anxiety-inducing. Writing on the Aldi Shoppers UK group on Facebook, one woman asked: "Does anyone pack as they go at aldi ? Or do you pack after "I tried today and felt so under pressure my pizzas was squashed the fresh ones too lol. "My sub rolls looked like they was gonna be flat breads any time soon and my buns were getting a bashing too. "Does anyone ask them to slow down?" Her post was quickly inundated with responses from fellow Aldi shoppers, many of whom shared...
    Unloading your groceries onto the supermarket conveyor-belt is just part and parcel of your weekly shop. But it turns out there's two types of people - those who place the divider at the end of their food shop, and those who expect the customer behind to do it instead. 2Kaye Hurry, who is from the UK, took to TikTok and posed a question on supermarket etiquetteCredit: Tiktok/@specialk770 2The customer asked whose responsibility it is to place the divider on the conveyor-beltCredit: Tiktok/@specialk770 Kaye Hurry, who is from the UK and posts under the acronym specialk770, took to TikTok and asked: "Who's job is to put the divider between the shopping? Mine? Or the person behind me?" And it wasn't long before the comments section was flooded with comments, with the supermarket etiquette question seemingly splitting opinion online. "Yours once you have put your shopping on...or is that just me?" wrote one. A second agreed: "Yours. Put the barrier after you’re done so the person behind you knows you’re finished loading."

    Perhaps the biggest misconception about our criminal justice system is that we are all presumed innocent, and that this presumption is really hard for the government to overcome. One may offer justifications for why our criminal justice system is so large. One may have theories about why certain populations are disproportionately affected. Nevertheless, we believe that no person ends up convicted of a crime, and locked behind bars, without going through a process that ensures a just result. The presumption of innocence is at the heart of our democracy, as are the constitutional protections that force the government to prove that a person no longer deserves that presumption. The reality is, our system could not be further from that ideal. People are not protected when they are charged with a crime. Instead, they are deposited onto a legal assembly line that whisks them from accusation to conviction. Rather than taking the time to understand the individual and tailoring a just outcome to the circumstances at hand, the criminal justice system views people as case files to be quickly processed and...
    It takes a lot of teamwork to escape the flood and thousands of firefighters have to work together to build boats until the water recedes. The timeless video now shows how this brilliant insect on these rafts makes direct conveyor belts to help riders reach dry land. These scenes show how Ant Raft with a small area changed its shape Ants The ant moves like a boat for a few hours from the main part of the tent. These bridges are formed from the combined action of two groups of ants: so-called structural ants – an insect that floats the colony – rotating from the bottom to the top of the pile, and the surface ants move freely upwards. Then they moved on. To support positions under their friends and relatives. Related: Image Gallery: Ants of the World There are more than 20 ants worldwide, but especially in one species, the red imported ant (Solenopsis invicta), Which has large colonies of more than 300,000 workers, According to North Carolina State University.

    The Conversation Spain Humanity is altering the oceans, the main regulators of climate change Shutterstock / Andrey Yurlov The turn of the decade brings us the gift of the Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development. It is very timely, therefore, to emphasize that the oceans are not only the essential and central element of life on our planet, they are also the great regulators of climate change. One of the keys to planetary climate control lies in the deep global circulation, also known as the global conveyor belt, a great current that reaches the abyssal regions of all the oceans of the planet. This planetary current originates from surface waters at high latitudes in the North Atlantic and around the Antarctic continent. Every winter, these cold, salty waters sink, thus starting the global conveyor belt. In a few weeks, 1,500 trillion cubic meters of water are injected into the depths of the ocean. This represents an annual average of about 48 million cubic meters per second, more than 200 times the average flow of the Amazon River. Scheme of...

    This is the moment a cat was just seconds away from being crushed in a garbage separator when an eagle-eyed worker saved it.  The operative spotted the sack containing the cat and lifted it off the conveyor belt to the rubbish separating machine at the Gorkomkhoz company in Ulyanovsk, Russia. CCTV footage showed workers sorting through rubbish and opening up plastic bags on December 21.  When one bag failed to open it was taken off the belt to be cut open and the cat was found inside. The operative spotted the sack and opened it seconds before the animal would have been mangled in the garbage separating machine at the Gorkomkhoz company in Ulyanovsk The conveyor belt was halted as a worker gestured to the cat while looking at the CCTV camera.  Another worker radioed for help as the man who saved the cat held it in his arms.  The animal was 'chubby, clean and well-groomed' without a scratch', company director Igor Perfilyev said.  RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next Researcher punches a LION in the...

    A man’s body was found on the conveyor belt of a Texas recycling center in a rural area just south of Austin, according to authorities. This was the second time this year that a dead body was found in an Austin-area recycling facility and the fourth time since 2014. Two other corpses were discovered at the same plant as the one where the body was found on Thursday. Travis County Sheriff’s deputies were called to the Texas Disposal Systems recycling facility in Creedmoor at around 9:45am on Thursday. According to investigators, workers at the plant were in the process of sorting items on the conveyor belt when the corpse was discovered early on Thursday morning. Investigators are trying to determine which truck the body was transported in before it was left at the recycling center, the Austin American-Statesman reported. The image above shows large piles of waste waiting to be sorted at the Texas Disposal Systems recycling plant in Creedmoor, Texas, just south of Austin, in March 2016.

    The Indian Ocean was once home to ancient supervolcanoes that erupted for 30 million years and researchers believe it was a magma 'conveyor belt' that fueled the explosive events. A team from Curtin University suggests the conveyor belt created shifts in the seafloor that allowed molten lava to flow for millions of years, which they say began around 120 million years ago. The long-term eruptions occurred on the Kerguelen Plateau, located below the surface of the India Ocean, which was formed from an accumulation of magma and lava. The team gathered black basaltic rocks from the seabed and used a dating technique to determine the spread and amount of the ancient magma and lava sitting on the mantle plume. The data shows that the land was covered in lava several miles thick and erupted at a rate of about seven inches every year. Because the Kerguelen Plateau is nearly the size of Western Australia the eruption rate is equivalent to filling up 184,000 Olympic-size swimming pools to the brim with lava every single year – the total duration of eruption...
    During his October 6 press conference about COVID-19, Governor Jared Polis suggested that the best way to make sure rising hospitalization numbers don't get out of control is to redouble safety protocols as we head into colder weather and the holiday season. But that's not happening, judging from visits to numerous Denver area stores over recent weeks: Many of the procedures put in place months ago to combat the spread of the novel coronavirus have fallen by the wayside. For instance, an overwhelming majority of retail outlets appear to have stopped tracking the number of people in the store at a given time. Likewise, sanitizing shopping carts, cash registers, conveyor belts, credit-card touch pads and the like is happening with much less frequency. And mask use among employees, while infinitely better than it was during the early days of the pandemic, has literally started to slip.Related Stories Polis Rips Trump as Terrible COVID-19 Example Jared Polis's Mom on Trump Racism and New Hate Groups Film Previewing Colorado's New COVID-19 Notification Phone App We've sighted the slippage in such major retailers...
