Britain needs trade deal with EU to remove uncertainty

Britain needs trade deal with EU to remove uncertainty

By Andrea Shalal

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The top U.S. business lobby on Monday urged Britain to conclude a bilateral trade deal with the European Union as quickly as possible to remove uncertainty that is limiting investment flows and could pose risks to its trade talks with the United States.

The Chamber of Commerce, in a series of recommendations issued ahead of the start of U.S.-UK trade talks on Tuesday, said U.S. firms had invested more than $750 billion (602.8 billion pounds) in Britain, in large part to secure access to the larger EU single market before Britain voted to leave the bloc.

The group said London should redefine its ties to Brussels before working out trade deals with other countries, and said there were opportunities for Britain and the United States to advance global standards in the digital economy, financial services, and emerging technologies.

The business group said eliminating all

  • Skin tags are benign growths that appear frequently on the neck, eyelids, groin, or armpits.

  • Unlike a mole, which is pigmented, or a wart, which is round and rough to the touch, a skin tag looks like a smooth piece of skin attacked by a stalk.

  • It is usually not a good idea to remove a skin tag yourself, but a doctor can snip it off, freeze it off, or burn it off.

Canadians Share Why They Did Or Didn’t Remove A Parent From A Care Home

Canadians Share Why They Did Or Didn’t Remove A Parent From A Care Home

“Please don’t let her get sick when she can’t see me.”

Tara Moriarty tweeted the sentence, along with a smiling photo of her 76-year-old mom, in mid-March. Moriarty’s mom had just moved into a Toronto seniors’ home and days later the residence banned visits to reduce the pandemic’s spread. Seeing coverage of COVID-19 cases in Ontario’s long-term care homes worried her, but her mother’s progressing dementia required care that overwhelmed Moriarty and her partner. “She’s safer there than with us,” they believed.

Two weeks later, that no longer rang true for the couple. Public health officials were raising the alarm about failings in the long-term care system. Horrific reports of COVID-19 seniors’ home outbreaks were rising. That included an emerging story from Quebec, where 31 people reportedly died in less than a month in Résidence Herron in Dorval. 

“At that point, I was like, ‘It’s going to

The coronavirus pandemic has made Trump’s psychiatric issues clear. We should remove him for our own safety

We knew this presidency would be deadly. We were not exaggerating when, three years ago, we put together the public-service book, The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 27 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President. We meant in part that the president would be dangerous to civic life, to democracy, and to the nation’s mental health — but we also meant that he would endanger lives.

Politics did not concern us. We are health professionals. Everything falls secondary to life and death, including politics.

After we got together to write the book, hundreds, and later thousands, more mental health professionals gathered from all over the country and the world with their shared concerns. Together we formed first the National Coalition, and then the World Mental Health Coalition, to organize around our goal of societal safety.

Through consultation with Congress members, letters, petitions, and education of the public, we tried
