Very sad, especially considering we have plenty of boarded up buildings doing absolutely nothing! A roof and four walls is better than sleeping outside!
At least five homeless people have died in Belfast since the start of the year, say a homeless charity.

Over the last few years the perception of Vikings has been ever sliding on the scale from less to more brutish. Things are getting closer to the “ruthless” end of the scale yet again, as researchers are once more examining evidence that slavery was an ess

The development of antibiotics and other antimicrobial therapies is arguably the greatest achievement of modern medicine. However, overuse and misuse of antimicrobial therapy predictably leads to resistance in microorganisms. Alternative therapies have

What did they do to The Dark Hedges!
 
The stupidity of Northern Ireland astounds me sometimes. They decided to improve the Dark Hedges, one of the iconic Game Of Thrones locations...so it get resurfaced, widened and white lines painted on it! A one way system would have been a better idea for such a famous location! Before and after pics from FB to compare.

I understand the concept behind the bedroom tax, in that people don't get housing benefit for rooms they don't actively use. The way it was applied was wrong. There are people need a room to store medical equipment, for carers, children from another marriage, panic room for domestic abuse, room for a special needs child, the list is endless. Some of these people are hit by the bedroom tax, even though they need the 'spare' room. The lack of 2 and 1 bedroom housing to move people into is also a problem. No point punishing people in social housing for having an extra room if you have nowhere else suitable to move them into!
Tory ministers admit they've spent £50,000 losing a Court of Appeal case - but the true cost will be far higher

The Armenian Reform Plan was signed into law on 8th February, 1914. The agreement is an often overlooked moment which marked both the deterioration of European diplomacy into the First World War, and the onset of events which would culminate in terrible tragedy for the Armenian people. Russia and the Ottoman Empire were the agreement’s …

I was always told 'all you can do is your best'. Whatever mark you get is simply a reflection on your ability in a particular subject. Everyone has a good subject. Everyone has a bad subject. When/If we let our young people concentrate on what they have a natural talent for, they will be much happier and do better!

Yes, some helmeted Vikings traveled around Europe, West Asia, and even North America raiding and pillaging. It is a myth, though, that their helmets were decorated with horns, antlers, or wings. But you can see from the featured image above that one of

 The thing with 'facts' is, they can change! The planets example in the comments here is a good one. Pluto is a planet, then isn't a planet. Is Sedena (spelling might be wrong) now the 9th planet? As well as the 'facts' in books, children need to research the latest knowledge. Scientific, geological and historical knowledge is always changing with new finds.  
The Independent is reporting that Nick Gibb has warned that schools are still relegating “timeless literature, scientific wonders and great historical events” to a “back seat” in the classroom in favour of teaching pupils “joyless” skills and processes”. In a robust attack on the teaching ...

And the fact that history is being rewritten. Since I have collected old encyclopedias I have seen the trend to change up some historic fact to the new idea of the historic facts. Now that printed books are passé and few families have a set of encyclopedias and dictionaries the change to a more dumbed down population is complete.

It would be interesting if they dna tested those with weaker lungs to see how many have Viking genes.
Proud of your Viking heritage? You’re likely to be more susceptible to lung conditions as a result of it. According to a research study published by the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (LSTM), those of Viking descent may have a genetic predisposition to suffer from lung conditions such as emphysema, thanks to an adapted resistance …
