  1. You should keep a few special pieces to remember your parents by. But everything else is just stuff. They would want you to have a house that was comfortable to live in, not cluttered with their stuff. Sell what you can, and recycle the rest.
  2. I think it likely that if this officer is convicted of unlawful and malicious wounding then he will be sacked. If he is found innocent, SYP will have to make a decision based on the evidence they have as to whether he can be sacked. Even if he is not sacked, this offence will remain on the officer's record and he will be aware that he cannot overstep the mark by an iota. He will not get sentenced for GBH as he hasn't been charged with GBH. The CPS will have charged him with the offence that they felt they had the best chance of convicting him on.
  3. You cannot eradicate rats from somewhere like Graves Park. They have always been there, and they always will be there. There is very little risk caused to humans who are walking in the park. A baby playing on the grass would be at risk if it put it's hands in it's mouth after touching the grass, but this risk can be managed by putting the baby down on a blanket to play. It really isn't a problem.
  4. Converting an old pub into a spa would seem one way forward. The largest expense in your idea is the swimming pool. You are very unlikely to find a property that already has a pool, so there will be significant cost to install one. The idea of a property outside of the city makes sense, as you will save money as you won't need screen around the property if it is not overlooked. It is likely that such a property would have the land available to install solar heating for the pool which will make a big difference to running costs. There will be few places in the city that will not be overlooked, although a tall building with access to the roof for sunbathing might work. You might find it easier to achieve your aim if the nudist aspect was only a few days a week. On other days, the spa would be for people who were not nudists. All the above is likely to take a lot of money - £300K+. You would need 200+ members to make that sort of investment viable. The only way to make this happen on a shoestring would to find an existing spa owner and sell them on the idea of a regular nudist day; perhaps a day when the spa is normally shut? If you were to offer to run the spa on that day and give them the profits, it could be a win-win for you both.
  5. I too have my doubts about whether Grant Shapps has the courage to remove the franchise. They were clearly too inexperienced to run the service that they decide to bid on.
  6. I don't thing the issue is the lakes, but rather the grate at the bottom of the stream near the playground. In periods of excess rainfall, especially in the autumn when leaves add to the problem, I expect the grate get blocked and the water has no where to go except out onto Chesterfield Road. Regular cleaning of the grate would seem appropriate.
  7. Congrats of getting your results. It will take time for them to sink in, so take your time on following up any matches.
  8. It's not overkill. What you can see from the news footage is that the earth under the auxiliary slipway has been largely washed away by water flowing under the slipway; which should not have happened. This leaves the puddle clay core unballasted against the weight of the water behind it. Adding ballast to the front of the dam is the correct solution, while the water has not been emptied from behind the dam.
  9. Where were your family members living the last time you knew? Sheffield or somewhere else?
  10. My understanding of a defence barrister's role is that they put the defendant's defence to the court in order to ensure the defendant gets a fair hearing, and a fair sentence. As the judge uses the victim impact statements to decide the sentence, if there is anything that is unfair in the impact statement, the barrister can argue that the judge should not hear it; but I can't see there is any argument that the defendant shouldn't hear it.
  11. Competition is essential to progress, as others have said, but so are ethics. If winning is the only thing you care about, the end result is cheating or violence to prevent others winning when they are better than you.
  12. And a Typhoon can get from Northern Scotland to the south coast of the UK in about 20 minutes, so there are at least twelve QRA aircraft covering the whole of the UK.
  13. One of the factors affecting the recovery rate is peoples ability to pay. I expect the recovery rate in Sheffield is low because more people are unable to pay; it might also be that the Sheffield collection service is more forgiving of people that cannot pay. Some councils may have a better collection rate, but if this results in more children not getting a hot meal every day, is this a good thing?
