Reverend Chu, a Baptist minister, is a leader of Taiwan’s “Umbrella Movement.” It was — and remains — a peaceful campaign to stop the growing authoritarian leadership of Taiwan’s government. When police and military units turned teargas and pepper spray on pro-democracy demonstrators in 2014, the protesters hid behind umbrellas to shield their eyes and faces from the chemicals. Thus, the movement had a name, and in Yiu-ming, a moral champion. Chu escaped mainland China and Chairman Mao’s atrocities as an orphaned child. Ultimately turning to faith and religious service, for decades he ministered in some of Hong Kong’s poorest neighborhoods; … [Read more...] about McBrayer: In fight for justice, we do not give up

Deliveroo motorbike riders in Norwich. Picture : ANTONY KELLY Well-known chain restaurants are setting up ‘virtual’ delivery brands from their kitchens to cash in on the lucrative takeaway market. A string of restaurants with branches in Norwich have set up the virtual or sub-brands for delivery websites such as Deliveroo and UberEats.While the food is cooked in the same kitchens, they are listed separately with different names, often with no obvious link.And the virtual entries do not have separate food hygiene ratings, with none of those found in Norwich having their own entry on the Food Standards Agency website.It makes it more difficult to for consumers unaware of the link to check hygiene scores, as well as allergen guides.The new restaurant at Riverside, Las Iguanas, formerly the Bridge Tavern.

Recently, images and details of a 2013 Mahindra XUV500 W8 that met with an accident were published on a Team-BHP thread. These images showed a completely mangled XUV500 that had met with an accident in NCR. What’s startling is that in spite of the huge damage that the car has suffered, none of the six airbags present in the car could deploy. The distraught owner, Arvind, even clarified that no seat covers or bumper guards or accessories were installed in his car. Moreover, all the passengers were wearing a seat belt. He also added that his son, who was driving the car, had suffered severe brain injuries in the accident. Like we said, these images of the totalled XUV500 have been doing rounds online. Most were surprised that the airbags did not deploy, despite none of the usual factors that prevent deployment of airbags were present in this case. The owner of the Mahindra XUV500, and most commenters on the forum, have been demanding a third-party investigation of the … [Read more...] about XUV500 airbags do not open in crash; Mahindra responds
