Sky stops broadcasting Fox News in UK

Interesting. I have Fox News as part of my basic Sky package but have never watched it. The time difference (+5) means that morning here would be whatever is showing at around 2:00 - 4:00 in the States.

========================================================================
Sky is to stop broadcasting Fox News in the UK after low audience figures, the media firm has said.
21st Century Fox, which is owned by Rupert Murdoch, said the channel was being withdrawn as it was not commercially viable.

The decision was not related to Fox's takeover bid for Sky, a source told the BBC.
Culture secretary Karen Bradley has previously said she may refer the bid to competition regulators.

"Fox has decided to cease providing a feed of Fox News Channel in the UK," a company spokeswoman said.
"Fox News is focused on the US market and designed for a US audience and, accordingly, it averages only a few thousand viewers across the day in the UK.

The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis

Bought the Season 2 DVDs this week and am working my way through. "Dobie" has always been in the top five of my favourite TV comedies, along with Bob Newhart (first series) and Seinfeld. One thing that surprised me was that there were 35 episodes in Season 2, almost twice the number in most TV shows these days!

I visit the Rodin Museum in Paris two or three times a year and have a miniature "Thinker" on my coffee table facing off against a miniature Buddha. I like to think that my lifelong passion with Rodin stems from watching Dobie a very long time ago when the world was young.

Plus, it was the one show in which Bob Denver was actually funny.


No more Aloha Snackbars in Venice

'WE WILL SEND THEM TO ALLAH' Mayor promises anyone who shouts ‘Allahu Akbar’ in Venice will be gunned down

An Italian mayor has ordered cops to shoot on sight anyone who shouts ‘’Allahu Akbar’’ rather than risk a terror attack.

Cops in Venice have been told to shoot potential terrorists on sight.

The Italian city’s mayor has ordered them to target anyone shouting “Allahu Akbar”, Arabic for God is Greater.

Luigi Brugnaro, mayor of the tourist hot spot of Venice, revealed the order at a summer think tank and was applauded by delegates.

He said: “Anyone who shouts Allahu Akbar in St Mark’s Square can expect to be gunned down by snipers within four paces.

How many terrorist attacks in countries comprising the Visegrad Group?

For those of you not acquainted with the Visegrad Group, it's comprised of the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, and Poland, three Slavic nations and one Finns-Ugraic.

The answer to the OP header is zero. Any ideas of why that might be?

Are Republicans or Democrats More Anti-Science?


'Hard' Brexit offers '135bn annual boost' to economy

Removing all trade tariffs and barriers would help generate an annual £135bn uplift to the UK economy, according to a group of pro-Brexit economists.

A "hard" Brexit is "economically much superior to soft" argues Prof Patrick Minford, lead author of a report from Economists for Free Trade.

He says eliminating tariffs, either within free trade deals or unilaterally, would deliver huge gains.

Irony thy name is NJCardFan

Evidently Apple is on the conservatives' bad boy list for some contribution they made. I don't know, or particularly care to know, the specifics. I was just struck by the incredible irony and how some can be self-oblivious.

Notice how Apple gets a free pass in the media? Nearly, if not all of their products are made in China but you never hear of them getting called out for it.
