  4. We might be able to show him to the exit but hopefully, this time, we will also be able to escort him through that door. Last election we showed him to the exit but he remained in power with the assistance of the Bloc, Green and NDP parties.?

  6. You might want to take a look at that but nevertheless the possible return of GreenLand to be a greenland as evidently it was around 900AD is something to note. It seems that the reverse is true Salt water is more dense than fresh water Density = mass/volume. Increasing the mass by adding salt increases the density. Seawater is a little bit more dense than fresh water so it sinks beneath freshwater. This means that when rivers flow out into the sea the river freshwater floats on top of the sea water.

  10. WASHINGTON, Aug 5 (Reuters) - The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) on Thursday issued a new safety directive for Boeing (BA.N) 737 Next Generation (NG) and MAX airplanes to address a potential issue with reduced fire suppression capabilities. The FAA said planes may have a failed electronic flow control of the air conditioning packs that vent air into the cargo hold from other areas of the plane. The directive prohibits operators from transporting cargo in the cargo hold if airplanes are operating with this condition unless they can verify items are nonflammable and noncombustible. The FAA said the directive covers all Boeing 737 8, 737 9, and 737 8200 MAX airplanes and some 737-800 and 737-900ER series airplanes. Boeing did not immediately comment. Report ad The airworthiness directive impacts 663 airplanes registered in the United States and approximately 2,204 worldwide. Operators must comply with this directive beginning 10 days after date of publication.

U.S. to require travellers to be vaccinated against COVID-19: official By Zeke Miller The Associated Press Posted August 4, 2021 8:16 pm The Biden administration is taking the first steps toward requiring nearly all foreign visitors to the U.S. to be vaccinated for the coronavirus, a White House official said Wednesday. The requirement would come as part of the administration’s phased approach to easing travel restrictions for foreign citizens to the country. No timeline has yet been determined, as interagency working groups study how and when to safely move toward resuming normal travel. Eventually, all foreign citizens entering the country, with some limited exceptions, are expected to need to be vaccinated against COVID-19 to enter the U.S. READ MORE: Thinking of travelling? Here’s where mixed COVID-19 vaccines aren’t accepted The official spoke on the condition of anonymity to preview the policy under development. The Biden administration has kept in place travel restrictions that have severely curtailed international trips to the U.S., citing the spread of the delta variant of the virus. Under the rules, non-U.S. residents who have been to China, the European Schengen area, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Brazil, South Africa and India in the prior 14 days are prohibited from entering the U.S.All travelers to the U.S., regardless of vaccination status, are required to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within three days of air travel to the country. The Biden administration has faced pressure to lift some restrictions from affected allies, the air travel industry and families who have been kept separated from loved ones by the rules. Many have complained that the travel restrictions don’t reflect the current virus situation — particularly as caseloads in the U.S. are worse than in many of the prohibited nations. The U.S. currently has not approved the AstraZeneca vaccine for use and does not recognize a mix of AstraZeneca and an mRNA vaccine to be fully vaccinated — both of which have been approved by Canadian health officials.
