Been there, done that, got the T-shirt. I'm not talking, by the way, about the hard, militarised border that used to scar the countryside. Yes, it was traumatic, but it was not the only hard border we have had to get used to. In February/March 2001 there was an outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease in south Armagh, beside the-then not-just-as-hard border. It was part of a foot-and-mouth outbreak that had begun in Britain in February of the same year. Overnight a hard border, a hard economic border, descended - one that the Republic of Ireland … [Read more...] about Want to know what a hard border looks like?

THESE haunting photos showed the blackened remains of the flat where the Grenfell Tower fire began. The official report said the Hotpoint fridge-freezer, which was cited as the cause of the fire, may not have started the blaze. What does flat 16 look like now? The pictures largely speak for themselves. Images show what remains of flat 16’s kitchen where the fire that killed 72 people started on June 14 last year. A "culture of non-compliance" at Grenfell Tower was also criticised today as an astonishing series of shortcomings in the system were exposed. In a report into how the fire started, University of Dundee Professor Niamh Daeid said that the fire began "in or around the tall fridge freezer" - but stops short of saying it definitely started in the freezer itself. A series of photographs show the wreckage, with the partition between the kitchen and living room completely burned away. What happened to the Grenfell fraudster?

The Trump administration and the industry are trying to alleviate the problem by loosening federal rules and enticing nontraditional drivers like women, teenagers and minorities to operate big rigs. The Transportation Department has recently sidelined a number of safety regulations that … [Read more...] about ‘What Does a Trucker Look Like?’ It’s Changing, Amid a Big Shortage
Gov. Mark Dayton often resorts to a football metaphor to explain how he thinks negotiations with the Republican-controlled Legislature ought to work. They way he describes it, he starts in his end zone; they start in their end zone. Once each side has moved some and they are both approaching the 50 yard line, a deal can be done. “I recognize they need to get some of what they want. ... I have my priorities, and they have theirs,” the DFL governor said after vetoing a GOP tax conformity bill at an elaborately staged event last week at St. Paul grade school library, where a few dozen second- and third-graders looking on and shouting “Veto” as he applied the red stamp. “We’re co-equal branches of government, and we need to both acknowledge each other’s priorities,” he said. But it’s not clear the governor and Republican leaders at the Capitol are even playing on the same field these days. When the Legislature adjourned just … [Read more...] about End-of-session drama raises larger question for Dayton, GOP leaders: What does compromise even look like anymore?
