He said: “I’m not going to bandy around figures.” (Getty Images) Shadow communities secretary Andrew Gwynne told the BBC the figures were an “absolute work of fiction”.

Business minister Kwasi Kwarteng was asked on Sky News this morning how much the Tories would spend if they won the 12 December election. It comes as Moody’s downgraded the UK’s credit rating outlook due to “widespread political pressures for higher expenditures with no clear plan to increase revenues to finance this spending”.

The Conservatives are now being criticised for not being able to tell the public how much they would spend if re-elected. Javid told the BBC: “During this campaign we know exactly what we want to say and when, and I’m going to stick to that. McDonnell said the analysis was: “An incompetent mish-mash of debunked estimates and bad maths cooked up because they know Labour’s plans for real change are popular.” Chancellor Sajid Javid also refused to give away further details of the Conservatives’ spending plans. The £1.2tn figure put out by the Tories was from analysis overseen by Javid and was inclusive of the Labour’s 2017 manifesto and policies passed by the party in subsequent party conferences. whatsapp Conservatives refuse to reveal cost of spending pledges The party put out figures last night that show a Labour government would spend £1.2tn if elected and would bankrupt the country. Tory cabinet members have refused to say how much the Conservatives will pledge to spend as a part of the party’s manifesto. whatsapp The figure also assumes that all of these policies would be implemented on day-one of a Labour government.

first_imgFormer concentration camp guard convicted in one of the last Nazi trials in history July 24, 2020 Advertisement AdvertisementTags: Black historyhistory RELATEDTOPICS Crowds continued to show up at the school, at one point bringing a small baby’s coffin with a Black doll inside.Bridges stayed at the school despite retaliation against her family. Grocery stores refused to sell to her mother, Lucille. And her father, Abon, lost his job, according to the National Park Service. Eventually, though, Bridges made it to second grade. And when she did, the school’s incoming first grade class had eight Black students, the EJI said.Bridges continues to be an inspiration for many. In 2011, she was invited to the Oval Office.“I think it’s fair to say that if it wasn’t for you guys, I wouldn’t be here today,” then President Barack Obama told Bridges during her visit, according to the White House archives.Ruby’s Mother Lucille, who Ruby said pushed her to attend the school, died this week at 86. AdvertisementThat year, only five of the 137 Black first graders who applied to transfer were accepted, and only four agreed to attend, according to EJI. Bridges was among them.“For me, being 6 years old, I really wasn’t aware of what was going on,” Bridges, now 66, told NPR in 2010. “I mean the only thing that I was ever told by my parents that I was going to attend a new school and that I should behave.”Once Bridges entered the school and arrived at her classroom, all the other students had withdrawn. The rest of the school year, it was just her and the teacher, she said.

She was the first Black student to attend the school.Her first day at the school came four years after Black parents in New Orleans filed a lawsuit against the Orleans Parish School Board for not desegregating the school system in the wake of the Brown v. Board of Education decision, which found that state laws establishing segregation in public schools were unconstitutional.In 1960, the same year Bridges walked into the school, the Orleans Parish School Board had convinced Judge. J. Skelly Wright to require Black students to apply for transfer to all-White schools, thus limiting desegregation, according to the Equal Justice Initiative.

first_imgU.S announces full-fledged Taiwan relationship U.S Department of State announces full fledged relationship with Taiwan. The full statement below:Taiwan is a vibrant democracy and reliable partner of the United States, and yet for several decades the State Department has created complex internal restrictions to regulate our diplomats, servicemembers, and other officials’ interactions with their Taiwanese counterparts. The United States government took these actions unilaterally, in an attempt to appease the Communist regime in Beijing. No more.Today I am announcing that I am lifting all of these self-imposed restrictions. Executive branch agencies should consider all “contact guidelines” regarding relations with Taiwan previously issued by the Department of State under authorities delegated to the Secretary of State to be null and void.Additionally, any and all sections of the Foreign Affairs Manual or Foreign Affairs Handbook that convey authorities or otherwise purport to regulate executive branch engagement with Taiwan via any entity other than the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) are also hereby voided. The executive branch’s relations with Taiwan are to be handled by the non-profit AIT, as stipulated in the Taiwan Relations Act.The United States government maintains relationships with unofficial partners around the world, and Taiwan is no exception. Our two democracies share common values of individual freedom, the rule of law, and a respect for human dignity. Today’s statement recognizes that the U.S.-Taiwan relationship need not, and should not, be shackled by self-imposed restrictions of our permanent bureaucracy. /Public Release.

first_imgODP Apprenticeships Luke’s Story After successfully finishing internship at the Department for Transport (DfT), I knew I wanted to work within the Civil Service. I made it my quest to work there and be one of the 16% of autistic people in full-time employment. After the internship I returned to Sixth Form, where it did not go unnoticed how much I had grown in confidence and determination.The following year I was invited back to the programme to give a speech to the 2019 interns, at the opening ceremony of the internship. It was great to be back and I got lots of positive feedback from the Autism Exchange, people at the Civil Service and the interns. That gave me so much ambition, confidence and determination to make sure that I found a role for myself within the Civil Service.A few weeks after my speech a role came up for an apprenticeship within Cabinet Office working in the Office of the Parliamentary Counsel (OPC). As soon as I saw this position it instantly appealed to me. Also, the role had many similarities to the job I did whilst on my internship. So, for those reasons I decided to apply.There was an online application followed by tests to complete. As they were mainly competency based, the experience I gained on the internship was invaluable for completing these. I got through to the interview stage for the role. When I attended the interview, I felt that this was my chance to accomplish my dream of both becoming one of the 16% of autistic people in full-time employment and to get into the Civil Service. Even though I was very nervous attending the interview I knew that it was my opportunity to shine and show who I am. I made sure that I locked the nerves away and I tried my hardest to get the role, using the knowledge and experience I had gained.A few days after the interview I received an email about the outcome. I was very nervous when I saw the email in my inbox. I opened it, only to see the word saying ‘Congratulations’. I jumped for joy as I knew I was one step closer to my dream.I started last September (2020) and ever since then I have really enjoyed my time at the OPC. I have got involved with so many interesting and unique things that I am forever grateful for. Also, within the OPC everyone has been very supportive and welcoming to me and I really enjoy working here.Recently I have also become part of the Cabinet Office Apprentice Network (COAN) and taken on the role of Intranet Team Lead. This is a great opportunity to network with other apprentices and work together on a project. Everyone is friendly and supportive and we enjoy collaborating with each other.I am forever grateful of the opportunities that the Civil Service, OPC, DfT, Ambitious about Autism and COAN have given me. I highly encourage departments to sign up to the Autism Exchange Programme and make other autistic peoples dreams come true.The Future plans for myself as an apprentice is to complete my Business Administration Level 3 Apprenticeship to a high standard and after that I am hoping to build a career in the Civil Service as I have really enjoyed my experiences here and loads of people have welcomed me and made me feel part of a team straight away. /Public Release.

first_imgRinri Therapeutics raises £10 million to advance stem cell therapy for hearing loss University of Sheffield spinout company, Rinri Therapeutics, has raised investment to advance its therapy for hearing lossThe company is developing a novel stem cell therapy to restore hearing and reverse sensorineural hearing lossThere are currently no pharmacological treatments available for this type of hearing lossUniversity of Sheffield spinout company, Rinri Therapeutics, has raised a total of £10 million from investors and the UK Future Fund to advance its novel stem cell therapy to restore hearing loss.The biotechnology company is developing a novel stem cell therapy to restore hearing and will use the £10 million raised from existing investors, Boehringer Ingelheim Venture Fund (BIVF), UCB Ventures and BioCity alongside the UK Government Future Fund, to support the development of its novel stem cell therapy to reverse sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL).Rinri’s underlying technology is based on innovative research into auditory stem cells led by Professor Marcelo Rivolta at the University of Sheffield. It seeks to reverse SNHL through the repair of the damaged cytoarchitecture in the inner ear.SNHL happens when there is damage to the hair cells in the cochlea and/or to the auditory nerve. There are currently no pharmacological treatments available for SNHL despite the increasing number of patients that suffer from this condition globally.Professor Marcelo Rivolta, said: “This investment is a validation of the journey we started several years ago. We are very happy and grateful for the continued support from our investors, now together with the UK Future Fund. We believe the technology we are developing can have a substantial impact on the lives of people affected by hearing loss, and these funds will help us pave the way to a first in man clinical trial.”Dr Simon Chandler, CEO of Rinri Therapeutics, commented: “We are very pleased to receive continuing support from existing investors alongside matched funding from the UK Future Fund. Our major investors share the vision we have for our technology to bring transformational changes to the lives of patients suffering from hearing loss, and the proceeds from this fund raising will allow us to advance our pioneering journey towards first in-man clinical trials and to ultimately realise the potential of stem cell therapy to reverse sensorineural hearing loss.”Frank Kalkbrenner, Global Head of the Boehringer Ingelheim Venture Fund, said: “We are delighted to continue our backing of Rinri and its pioneering approach to hearing loss, now with the added endorsement and support of the Future Fund. We believe Rinri’s’ technology is differentiated from other approaches to hearing loss restoration and has the potential to make a significant impact on treatment.”Additional information Rinri Therapeutics is a private biotechnology company developing advanced stem cell-based therapeutics to restore hearing. The company’s pioneering technology seeks to reverse sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) through the repair of the damaged cytoarchitecture in the inner ear. SNHL is estimated to affect 64 million patients in the US and 34 million in Europe. There are currently no pharmacological treatment options for SNHL patients.Rinri, is backed by Boehringer Ingelheim Venture Fund (BIVF), UCB Ventures, BioCity and the University of Sheffield. Rinri was founded in late-2018 and is headquartered in Sheffield, UK. /Public Release.

Students in the class photographed such things as cream dropping into hot tea, smoke generated by blowing out candles, and a gasoline-diesel mixture burning on top of water, among other physical phenomena. The students went on to photograph the fluid dynamics of clouds and then worked in teams to create more complex compositions. A final exhibit from the course, which is co-taught by Hertzberg of mechanical engineering and Alex Sweetman of art and art history, will be presented May 4 and May 5 in the Connections Gallery, located in the lobby of the CU-Boulder Engineering Center at Regent Drive and Colorado Avenue. The exhibit will open at 10 a.m. May 4 and close at 5 p.m. May 5. A reception for the students and their families will be held at 4 p.m. on the last day. Hertzberg and Sweetman have co-taught the Flow Visualization course for the last three years. It has attracted a mix of art and engineering students. “Since teaching this course, I feel like I’ve come out of the closet because for the first time, I express how I feel about fluid mechanics,” Hertzberg said. “I study it because it’s beautiful.” For more information on the course and to view student work from past classes, visit www.colorado.edu/MCEN/flowvis.last_img read more
