Coronavirus: Action Plan of the British Government: A guide to what you can expect across the UK

Author: Man With A Cat Narrator: Man With A Cat Release Date: March 2020

The current novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, which began in December 2019, presents a significant challenge for the entire world. The UK Government and the Devolved Administrations, including the health and social care systems, have planned extensively over the years for an event like this, and the UK is therefore well prepared to respond in a way that offers substantial protection to the public. This document sets out: - what we know about the virus and the disease it causes - how we have planned for an infectious disease outbreak, such as the current coronavirus outbreak - the actions we have taken so far in response to the current coronavirus outbreak - what we are planning to do next, depending upon the course the current coronavirus outbreak takes. - the role the public can play in supporting this response, now and in the future.

Immersive and Addictive Technologies: A Report of the House of Commons Digital, Culture, Media and S Audiobook

Immersive and Addictive Technologies: A Report of the House of Commons Digital, Culture, Media and S

Author: Man With A Cat Narrator: Man With A Cat Release Date: September 2019

The Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee is appointed by the House of Commons to examine the expenditure, administration and policy of the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport and its associated public bodies. In this report the Committee builds on the newly established principle of 'online harms' by considering potential psychosocial and financial harms associated with the use of immersive technologies. Following the World Health Organisation's formal designation of 'gaming disorder', the Committee heard calls from gamers, academics, and clinicians for urgent action to better understand and address the condition. While gaming disorder is a relatively new area of understanding, immersive technology providers also have clear responsibilities to protect users from well-established online harms including bullying and harmful content. The Committee also considered the effects of disordered spending within games, and consider the links between game design mechanics such as loot boxes and gambling. The potential harms outlined in this report can be considered the direct result of the way in which the 'attention economy' is driven by the objective of maximising user engagement. This report explores how data-rich immersive technologies are driven by business models that combine people's data with design practices to have powerful psychological effects.

Mueller Report, The - Volume II: Report On The Investigation Into Russian Interference In The 2016 P Audiobook

Mueller Report, The - Volume II: Report On The Investigation Into Russian Interference In The 2016 P

Author: Iii Robert S. Mueller Narrator: Man With A Cat Release Date: July 2019

This report is submitted to the Attorney General pursuant to 28 C.F.R. § 600.8(c), which states that , '[a]t the conclusion of the Special Counsel 's work, he shall provide the Attorney General a confidential report explaining the prosecution or declination decisions [the Special Counsel] reached.' The Russian government interfered in the 2016 presidential election in sweeping and systematic fashion. Evidence of Russian government operations began to surface in mid-2016. In June, the Democratic National Committee and its cyber response team publicly announced that Russian hackers had compromised its computer network. Releases of hacked materials-hacks that public reporting soon attributed to the Russian government-began that same month. Additional releases followed in July through the organization WikiLeaks, with further releases in October and November. In late July 2016, soon after WikiLeaks's first release of stolen documents, a foreign government contacted the FBI about a May 2016 encounter with Trump Campaign foreign policy advisor George Papadopoulos. Papadopoulos had suggested to a representative of that foreign government that the Trump Campaign had received indications from the Russian government that it could assist the Campaign through the anonymous release of information damaging to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. That information prompted the FBI on July 31, 2016, to open an investigation into whether individuals associated with the Trump Campaign were coordinating with the Russian government in its interference activities.

Report on the accident at Windscale No. 1 Pile on 10 October 1957: The Penney Report Audiobook

Report on the accident at Windscale No. 1 Pile on 10 October 1957: The Penney Report

A serious fire developed in the core of a nuclear reactor at Windscale Works, Sellafield, northwest England, which led to the release of significant quantities of radioactive material into the environment during 10-11th October, 1957. In 1957, Windscale Works was operated by the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA), and on 15th October it was announced by the Chairman of the UKAEA that a Committee of Inquiry had been established under the chairmanship of Sir William Penney to conduct an investigation into the accident. The Committee reported to the Chairman of the UKAEA on 26th October. The Penney Report itself was not published, and was only made public via The National Archives in January, 1988

The Mueller Report - Volume I: Report On The Investigation Into Russian Interference In The 2016 Pre

Author: Iii Robert S. Mueller Narrator: Man With A Cat Release Date: April 2019

This report is submitted to the Attorney General pursuant to 28 C.F.R. § 600.8(c), which states that , '[a]t the conclusion of the Special Counsel 's work, he shall provide the Attorney General a confidential report explaining the prosecution or declination decisions [the Special Counsel] reached.'

Papadopoulos had suggested to a representative of that foreign government that the Trump Campaign had received indications from the Russian government that it could assist the Campaign through the anonymous release of information damaging to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. That information prompted the FBI on July 31, 2016, to open an investigation into whether individuals associated with the Trump Campaign were coordinating with the Russian government in its interference activities. That fall, two federal agencies jointly announced that the Russian government 'directed recent compromises of e-mails from US persons and institutions, including US political organizations,' and , ' [t]hese thefts and disclosures are intended to interfere with the US election process.' After the election, in late December 2016, the United States imposed sanctions on Russia for having interfered in the election. By early 2017, several congressional committees were examining Russia's interference in the election. Within the Executive Branch, these investigatory efforts ultimately led to the May 2017 appointment of Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller, III. The order appointing the Special Counsel authorized him to investigate 'the Russian government's efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election ,' including any links or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the Trump Campaign.

Zetetic Astronomy: An experimental inquiry into the true figure of the Earth: PROVING IT A PLANE, Wi Audiobook

Zetetic Astronomy: An experimental inquiry into the true figure of the Earth: PROVING IT A PLANE, Wi

Author: Parallax Narrator: Man With A Cat Release Date: February 2019

Samuel Birley Rowbotham (1816-1884) wrote Zetetic Astronomy: Earth Not a Globe under the pseudonym Parallax. His work was originally published as a 16-page pamphlet (1849), and later expanded into a book (1865). The term "zetetic" is derived from the Greek verb zeteo; which means to search or examine - to proceed only by inquiry. None can doubt that by making special experiments and collecting manifest and undeniable facts, arranging them in logical order, and observing what is naturally and fairly deducible, the result will be far more consistent and satisfactory than by framing a theory or system and assuming the existence of causes for which there is no direct evidence, and which can only be admitted "for the sake of argument". In this seminal work, "Parallax" lays out his case against the prevailing theories of the rotundity of the Earth, drawing on his readings in the fields of Perspective, Astronomy, Classical Mechanics and Christian Scripture.

A Really Short History of the Norman Conquest of England Audiobook

A Really Short History of the Norman Conquest of England

Author: Edward Augustus Freeman, Man With A Cat Narrator: Man With A Cat Release Date: February 2019

The Norman Conquest of England was that series of events during the latter part of the eleventh century by which a Norman Duke was set on the throne of England, and was enabled to hand down the crown of England to his descendants. The Norman Conquest of England does in truth mean a great deal more than the mere transfer of the crown from one prince or one family to another, or even than the transfer of the crown from a prince born in the land to a prince who came from beyond the sea. It means a great number of changes of all kinds which have made the history and state of England ever since very different from what they would have been if the Norman Conquest had never happened.

The Mississippi Scheme: In which a Scottish Adventurer destroys the Economy of France Audiobook

The Mississippi Scheme: In which a Scottish Adventurer destroys the Economy of France

Author: Man With A Cat Narrator: Man With A Cat Release Date: June 2017

In the early 18th century, eighty years prior to revolution, France went wild for stocks and bonds. Mechanics dropped their tools, tradesmen closed their shops. There was but one profession, one employment, one occupation, for persons of all ranks from peasant to prince. And that profession was speculating in stocks. This is the story of the time one adventurous Scotsman played chance against an entire nation. That Scotsman was John Law and historians are still divided in opinion as to whether they should call him a knave or a madman. Both epithets were unsparingly applied to him in his lifetime, but posterity has found reason to doubt the justice of the accusation, and to confess that John Law was more deceived than deceiving, more sinned against than sinning. Posterity, however, has also found reason to uphold its first judgement and declare John Law to be a bankrupt, murderer and outlaw; gambler, cheat and card-sharp; a flatterer, sycophant and projector unmatched in the art of hyperbole. This is his story.
