It became even harder for journalists to be narrating bystanders, the chorus, rather than protagonists and participants after the collapse of Lehman Brothers, which created panicked hysteria among even the biggest and most sophisticated financial institutions. Again, when I disclosed that Britain’s biggest banks had been told by the government that they needed to raise 50bn of additional capital, which meant in the case of Royal Bank of Scotland and HBOS that they would be semi nationalised, I was staggered when the share price of RBS fell 40% within minutes on the morning of 7 October 2008. But this fall in the share price and whatever impact there was on the confidence of the bank’s creditors and the urgency with which the Treasury then organised a rescue of the banking system reflected the painful financial reality.
I am an adult and I like something a little more edgy, more hardcore I guess you could say. However, I also enjoy a more little hearted gaming experience on occasion. In other words diversity is very important to me. Once thought to be a “trash fish,” the winter skate is now harvested and processed into fishmeal and lobster bait, and is even marketed for human consumption. Increased trawling for the species has resulted in the accidental capture of juveniles, which are easily mistaken for smaller, more abundant species. This has led to a staggering population decline among winter skate, which are slow to reach sexual maturity and have few offspring.
18 points submitted 1 year agoyeah but billionaires usually save a shitload of money or heavily prefer it anyway. Like my high school Econ teacher once said, being rich isn about spending money, its about making other people spend theirs for you. He would also only teach about 5 minutes of actual economics total since he would go on 45 minute tangents about how to make the perfect bbq, talk about why eating the worksheets instead of turning them is wrong (the man had no control over the class so ppl would come in high as fuck and just chew on the paper), and would end the class telling us that hope is the worst thing a man can have.
Together, we came up with a double breasted waistcoat with a three piece suit, inspired by morning dress but for an everyday look: a shawl collar, button through, not too high and not too low. We worked on it for six months. Plus a slim, low button coat and narrow flat front trousers.
In 1918, Harris became a squadron leader in the newly formed RAF, and during the following two decades served in India and the Middle East. He returned to England at the outbreak of war and in early 1942, he took over as commander in chief of Bomber Command and was promoted to air chief marshal. At the time, heavy losses of bombers on daytime raids and wildly inaccurate nighttime raids had led to the suspension of long range sorties by the RAF.
