Scotland is a mecca for golfers, offering plenty of historic and challenging courses

At present what we have, we dont need and what we need, we dont have, Salmond said. It is absurd for a nation with a coastline longer than Indias to have no major surface vessels and its obscene for a nation of five million people to host weapons of mass destruction. Salmonds Scottish National Party, which runs the semi-autonomous government in Edinburgh, last year reversed its 30-year opposition to membership of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization on condition that all existing nuclear weapons on Scottish soil are removed. The U.K.s nuclear deterrent is based 30 miles from Glasgow, Scotlands largest city. Trident and the future of the Scottish warship-building yards are at heart of the defense debate over whether Scotland would be better off by breaking away from the rest of the U.K. The latest opinion polls show supporters of Salmonds campaign for independence lagging behind those in favor of the status quo by more than 20 percentage points ahead of the Sept.

Aspokesperson for STV told allmediascotland: Todays announcement from Ofcom is a welcome milestone in the process as we continue to work towards securing a ten-year licence renewal. Further to Ofcoms decision to revise regional programming obligations for the Border region, we are happy to enter into discussions with ITV about our popular current affairs programme, Scotland Tonight, if it is determined that the best option is a commercial agreement between STV and ITV. All the Channel 3 licences throughout the UK are due for renewal at the end of next year. For the remainder of England, where ITV operates all the licences, permission has been granted by Ofcom to reduce the amount of local news transmitted. In Wales, ITVs licence obligations are to remain broadly unchanged and in Northern Ireland where has its own operator, UTV an application to reduce local news coverage has been rejected. Says a Scottish Conservatives media release, senior Scottish Conservative politiciansin the south of Scotland plan to meet with ITV bosses in coming weeks to see how to best take forward the plans.

N.Y. explorers: 1839 shipwreck found in Lake Ontario

The Atlas was nearing Oswegos harbor when it was hit by gale-force winds that likely shifted the heavy cargo, causing the schooner to sink quickly and giving its crew no time to get to their lifeboat, Kennard said. The sinking was witnessed by people on shore. A rescue ship sent out to look for survivors only found a few items belonging to the crew, he said. It literally sank like a stone, Kennard said. Video images of the shipwreck indicate the schooner hit the lakes bottom hard, toppling the masts and causing the deck to collapse on itself, he said. The ships wheel, heavily encrusted with mussels, remains intact.

The 2011 OHIP audit uncovered evidence Ontario is using to bolster its reform case. There is a suggestion the old system was vulnerable to abuse and became a cash cow for some clinics. "There is extraordinary growth in expenditures and the audit was one browse of those factors that just demonstrated to me there were companies taking advantage of the way the program was set out and taking advantage of their unlimited ability to bill OHIP," Health Minister Deb Matthews said.

Ontarians, according to Parks, consume more fish sandwiches than citizens in other parts of the country.

The McLobster will cost $6.79 plus tax. It will be made with 100 per cent Atlantic lobster meat and include celery, green onions and even a lemon "mayonnaise-style" sauce.

Ontario going after physio clinics to recoup money

The Act would require the aall-ina price to be more prominent than any other amounts referred to. Environmental protection costs can be disclosed, but they must be clearly and accurately described. It would be an offence under the proposed Act to make a false, misleading or deceptive representation relating to a recovered environmental protection cost. Increase in producer contributions to the Blue Box recycling program. The proposed Act would increase producersa responsibilities to municipalities by requiring producers to collect designated wastes from municipalities or to reimburse municipalities for certain costs associated with collecting, handling, transporting, storing, processing and disposing of those designated wastes. Increased waste diversion efforts aimed at the industrial, commercial and institutional (IC&I) sectors. New regulations are contemplated that are aimed at collecting recyclable waste from the IC&I sector (e.g., office buildings, malls, restaurants, hotels, educational institutions, hospitals, factories).

Putin and Obama: Brothers in Tyranny

Trey Gowdy, a South Carolina Republican, finally woke the proceedings up with what he called "the evolution of the defense" since the scandal began. First, Ms. Lerner planted a question at a conference. Then she said the Cincinnati office did it -- a narrative that was advanced by the president's spokesman, Jay Carney. Then came the suggestion the IRS was too badly managed to pull off a sophisticated conspiracy. Then the charge that liberal groups were targeted too -- "we did it against both ends of the political spectrum." When the inspector general of the IRS said no, it was conservative groups that were targeted, he came under attack.

Putin Declares Himself Dictator

"We are going to run and we will win," Navalny said through a loudspeaker to roars of approval from the crowd, many of whom clutching flowers and wearing white T-shirts reading "Navalny" or "Navalny's brother." "Together we are a huge powerful force and I am glad we have started realising this," he said. "Ahead of us is a big, difficult electoral campaign. Seven weeks of non-stop work and it's just the start," he said, referring to the September 8 poll. FRANCE 24s Moscow correspondent, Shaun Walker, said it was extraordinary to see such support for an opposition figure in Russia, a country where the opposition has http://purpwedeis.livejournal.com/2031.html not had that much support in a long time, where there havent been any charismatic leaders. Navalny's conviction and sentencing to five years in a penal colony by a Kirov court on Thursday sparked protests in Moscow and Saint Petersburg from supporters of the charismatic, powerful orator who led unprecedented demonstrations against President Vladimir Putin in 2011-2012.

Anti-Putin activist Navalny view vows Moscow poll win

Navatny is the most prominent, but just one in a long series of politically-motivated prosecutions in a country where the courts seldom make a move that displeases Putin. Frida Ghitis Navalny was particularly worrisome to the Russian president. He had gained an enormous following by speaking out against corruption and cronyism, labeling Putin's United Russia "a party of swindlers and thieves" and using social media to help mobilize the president's critics. He had just announced he would run for mayor of Moscow. But, like other Putin opponents with any possible chance to loosen the president's complete hold http://weissedsd.skyrock.com/3173822501-Wear-The-Heels-Around-Your-House-For-Several-Days-Making-Sure-That-The.html on power, he will likely go to prison instead.

Putin to attend international youth forum on lake Seliger

He was indicted by Putins Investigative Committee an extrajudicial body that works like the troikas of the Stalin era. Among those exposed by Navalny for the theft of billions were the very members of the Investigative Committee that indicted him. Navalny coined the term widely applied by the Russian people to PutinsUnited Russia, as the party of thieves and scoundrels. In a maneuver to secure the Moscows mayoral position in a Moscow that has soured on Putin, Putins loyalist mayor recently resigned in order to stand in a flash election in September. Navalny had declared his candidacy (and could have easily won a fair election), but his conviction in a provincial court will prohibit him from running for any elected office under Russian law. Putin has removed Navalny from formal politics.
