    if this is the right place to post this, but it needs to be widely shared. I received this text this morning at 06:49 purportedly from UK Government. It’s obviously a scam but there are probably people who may fall for it and click on the blue link! Pass this information on to all your friends.

    Is there a specific reason videos can’t be posted in a subsequent post to an original? I posted a few photos of my holiday and then tried to post a video but found I couldn’t. I had to start a new thread to post a video. Apologies if this problem has been questioned and replied to in the past.

    Leadership bid? Point to ponder. There was a limit set of £150,000 that allowed Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt to spend on their campaign during the last contest in 2019 . That amount has now been increased to £300,000. Under current rules, MPs must declare any donations they’ve received of more than £1,500 - including for leadership bids. But they have up to 28 days to do it - and after that, donations can take up to another two and a half weeks to be published. Between now and the new leader being picked on September 5, there will be only one more update to the Commons register of interests - probably in late August. Because of this, we’re likely to know very little about who’s funding the leadership campaigners until one of them is already in 10 Downing Street. This is legal, but campaigners believe it is a problem.

    Is real. The deniers can’t actual deny this global map is a wake up call. The U.K. is surrounded by water which in turn helps to regulate air temperatures. It is extremely highly unusual if we do get the forecasted temperatures of 40*C next week. NASA Earth Observatory reports that - in June and July 2022 - heat waves struck Europe. North Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. The globe map below shows the surface air temperatures across most of the Eastern Hemisphere on July 13.

    We are making our way to the airfield soon. Our son in law is doing his first solo flight. A big step in his aim to get a pilot’s license. A long way to go but he’s certainly on track. There’s always things going on over there. A nice afternoon out.

    People may be aware that a certain person didn’t understand the concept of “cleansing” a domestic water system, including hot water cylinder (or tank wrongly described by someone) to prevent the growth of the Legionella Bacterium and became quite irate for some reason. To those that may be interested, I can point you in the direction of where to purchase the correct cleansing chemical, test strips and neutralising chemical. There are companies out there that carry out this work, but it’s an extremely expensive exercise to get a company to do the work. Anyone with the ability to be able to gain access to their loft, can carry out this work. PM me for any details you might require.

    Legionella bacterium has been found in a Hornchurch doctors surgery forcing it’s closure. I found this very surprising as surgeries, as any other organisations have a duty of care to ensure their water systems stay free of the bacterium and have a regular testing regime. It’s extremely easy to ensure non growth of the bacterium. I carry out a regular (6monthly) cleansing exercise of my water system. Most people aren’t aware that it can also thrive in domestic water distribution pipework.

    Just arrived home from above having accompanied my son in law to another flying lesson. He’s doing extremely well having had over half the lessons he needs to do to attain his CAA license. There is also a large amount of theoretical work (navigation, weather charts etc.) he has to do. He’ll be able to fly us around the country when he’s fully qualified. 😀 Good luck to him.

    Make sure you can vote The local elections will take place on Thursday 5 May. All Havering residents who are registered to vote in local government elections can take part, including European Union citizens. There is still time to register to vote if you haven’t already. Local elections give everyone the chance to vote for a local representative for the next four years. Whoever you choose to vote for, it’s important that you register by 7 April so you can have your say in our borough’s future.

    Wind turbines were generating almost half of the Great Britain’s electricity demand at one point on Friday, as Storm Eunice swept through the country. Blustery conditions which saw trees topple and buildings damaged delivered a boost to renewable electricity production, grid operators said. At 5:30am on Friday morning turbines were meeting 48.5 per cent of the Britain’s electricity needs, and over the course of the day wind electricity was contributing around 39 per cent of the power to the overall energy mix. That is far higher than average. In January wind provided 27.5 per cent of Britain’s energy, National Grid data shows.

    40 Starlink satellites doomed SpaceX reported last night (February 8, 2022) in its Updates area that 40 of the 49 Starlink satellites it launched to low Earth orbit on February 3 are now doomed by a geomagnetic storm. Such storms are disturbances in Earth’s magnetic field caused by activity on the sun. The satellites were part of SpaceX’s grand plan to launch thousands of Starlink satellites for global internet access. SpaceX said: The satellites deployed on Thursday were significantly impacted by a geomagnetic storm on Friday … Preliminary analyses show the increased drag at the low altitudes prevented the satellites from leaving safe-mode to begin orbit raising manoeuvres up to 40 of the satellites will reenter or already have reentered the Earth’s atmosphere. Geomagnetic storms result from explosive events on the sun, called solar flares. These events have the potential to hurtle charged solar particles across space to the Earth. The impact causes a geomagnetic storm, an event associated with Earth’s beautiful auroras or northern lights. But these events also cause Earth’s atmosphere to warm and “puff up.” Low-orbiting satellites will feel increased atmospheric drag in an atmosphere puffed up during a geomagnetic storm. SpaceX said: In fact, onboard GPS suggests the escalation speed and severity of the storm caused atmospheric drag to increase up to 50% higher than during previous launches. The Starlink team commanded the satellites into a safe-mode where they would fly edge-on (like a sheet of paper) to minimize drag, to effectively ‘take cover from the storm’ … But alas, to no avail.

    I wonder how many people are aware that Beijing has no natural snow for the Winter Olympics. The Chinese have used 245 million litres of water (in an apparent drought ridden area) and an untold amount of snow generator machines. Organizers of the 2022 Winter Olympics, have been using dozens of snow generators and hundreds of snowblowers to create 1.2 million cubic metres of powder (or about 42.4 million cubic feet). The Games in Beijing will mark the first time athletes will compete almost entirely on artificial snow. That'll likely become the norm as climate change continues. But generating fake snow has a high environmental cost. "Even if powered by renewables, a huge amount of energy is needed which is both costly and can be a significant drain on water resources."

    Astronomers have discovered a mysterious spinning object in the Milky Way that emits a radio wave beam every 18 minutes - and is unlike anything seen before. The object has been observed to release a huge burst of radio energy for a whole minute every 18 minutes. Researchers estimate that it is around 4,000 light years away and could be a new class of slowly rotating neutron star with an ultra-powerful magnetic field that can be detected by radio telescopes. The observation is known as a radio transient, which refers to an object that periodically releases brief flashes of radio signals, as if it is switching on and off in space.

    An asteroid bigger than the tallest building on Earth is set to cruise through the inner solar system. NASA An asteroid that measures a little over half a mile wide (1 kilometre) will be coming close enough to our planet that amateur astronomers may be able to get a glimpse of it. Asteroid [1994 PC1](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/(7482)1994PC1) is coming in for a swing past our cosmic corner on Jan. 18. While it's quite a big one as space rocks go, it will comfortably zip by at a distance of 1.2 million miles (1.93 million kilometers) from Earth. That's more than five times the distance between our planet and the moon.
