Keeping Up Appearances S01 E04 The Inquiring Mind

Wikipedia

Keeping Up Appearances is a British sitcom created and written by Roy Clarke. It aired on BBC One from 1990 to 1995. The central character is eccentric and snobbish middle class social climber Hyacinth Bucket(Patricia Routledge), who insists that her surname is pronounced Bouquet.[2]The sitcom follows Hyacinth in her attempts to prove her social superiority, and to gain standing with those she considers upper class. Her attempts are constantly hampered by her lower class extended family, whom she is desperate to hide. Much of the humour comes from the conflict between Hyacinths vision of herself, and the reality of her underclass background. In each episode, she lands in a farcical situation as she battles to protect her social credibility.

The show comprised five series and 44 episodes, four of which are Christmas specials. Production ended when star Patricia Routledge moved on to other projects

Crime Drama: Messiah S01 E02 The Reckoning The Inquiring Mind

Wikipedia

Messiah is a British television drama series, broadcast on the BBC One network and produced in-house by BBC Northern Ireland, although the series itself is set in England. Made up of a series of occasional serials, the first, with two parts subtitled The First Killings & The Reckoning, was broadcast in 2001. It has been followed by Messiah 2: Vengeance is Mine (2003), Messiah III: The Promise (2004), Messiah IV: The Harrowing (2005) and most recently Messiah V: The Rapture (2008). The original production was based on a novel by Boris Starling: the subsequent installments have been written directly for television. Starling has a cameo as a murder victims corpse in the first serial.

A crime series, it follows the investigations of DCI Red Metcalfe, who often investigates particularly gruesome murders. Metcalfe is played by Scottish actor Ken Stott, and the other main regulars in the series are Kate Beauchamp (Frances Grey), Duncan Warren (Neil Dudgeon) and Metcalfes wife Susan (Michelle Forbes). The deafness of Forbes character necessitated both her and Stott learning British Sign Language for their characters frequent exchanges.

Classic Aussie Crime Drama:Water Rats S03 E17 Heads Or Tales The Inquiring Mind

Season 3 Episode 5 appears to be missing

Water Rats is an Australian TV police procedural broadcast on the Nine Network from 1996 to 2001. The series was based on work of the men and women of the Sydney Water Police who fight crime around Sydney Harbour and surrounding locales. The show was set on and around Goat Island in Sydney Harbour.

Water Rats premiered on 12 February 1996, and ran for six seasons and 177 episodes. Colin Friels and Catherine McClements were the original stars of the series and were instrumental in the shows early success. They both departed the show in 1999. In later seasons, Steve Bisley, Aaron Pedersen and Dee Smart became the shows main stars.

For the sixth and final season in 2001, the show concentrated more on the cops personal lives rather than just focusing on the crimes committed. The Nine Network cancelled the show after six seasons. Executive Producer Kris Noble blamed escalating costs for the cancellation. However, Bisley and Smart had also just quit the show, and the series had already been suffering a ratings battle following the departure of Friels and McClements in 1999.

Classic Comedy: Ronnie Corbett in Sorry S03 E02 Youre Going Nowhere The Inquiring Mind

Wikipedia

Sorry! is a BBC television sitcom, that aired on BBC1 from 1981 to 1982 and from 1985 to 1988. Starring Ronnie Corbett, created and written by Ian Davidson and Peter Vincent for the BBC, both of whom had previously written for The Two Ronnies, of whom Corbett was one half.

Sorry! is based around Timothy Lumsden who, 41 years old in the first three series (his age increased to 42 and then 48 in subsequent series Corbett was actually 50-57 during the series run), is a librarian who still lives at home with his domineering mother Phyllis and henpecked father Sidney. Although quite shy around women, Timothy longs to find love and leave home, but Phyllis is always against the idea, and constantly manipulates her son into staying at home. One of the running gags of the series is Sidney frequently shouting Language, Timothy! when he feels Timothy has said something inappropriate (though most times nobody would typically find the words even close to offensive). Timothy usually responds Sorry father, but sometimes snaps Shut up, father! to which Sidney always replies Fair enough.

The writers used this to clever effect in one episode when Timothy is boasting about his acadmeic achievements; I got two passes in English, Literature and the other one, at which point Sidney walks past and says Language, Timothy.

In contrast, Timothys friend Frank and sister Muriel urge Timothy to stand up to his mother once and for all. Muriel had successfully left home, and married Kevin, and as a result is viewed with distrust by her mother.

Clash of Warriors #8/17 von Manstein v Vatutin Battle of Kursk The Inquiring Mind

Battle of Kursk, (July 5August 23, 1943), unsuccessful German assault on the Soviet salient around the city of Kursk, in western Russia, during World War II. The salient was a bulge in the Soviet lines that stretched 150 miles (240 km) from north to south and protruded 100 miles (160 km) westward into the German lines. In an attempt to recover the offensive on the Eastern Front, the Germans planned a surprise attack on the salient from both north and south, hoping to surround and destroy the Soviet forces within the bulge. The German assault forces consisted of almost 50 divisions containing 900,000 troops, including 17 motorized or armoured divisions having 2,700 tanks and mobile assault guns. But the Soviets had surmised the German attack beforehand and had withdrawn their main forces from the obviously threatened positions within the salient. The Germans launched their attack on July 5, but they soon encountered deep antitank defenses and minefields, which the Soviets had emplaced in anticipation of the attack. The Germans advanced only 10 miles (16 km) into the salient in the north and 30 miles (48 km) in the south, losing many of their tanks in the process. At the height of the battle on July 12, the Soviets began to counterattack, having built up by then a marked preponderance of both troops and tanks. Their subsequent successes encouraged them to develop a broad offensive that recovered the nearby city of Orel (now Oryol) on August 5 and that of Kharkov (now Kharkiv, Ukraine) on August 23. The Battle of Kursk was the largest tank battle in history, involving some 6,000 tanks, 2,000,000 troops, and 4,000 aircraft. It marked the decisive end of the German offensive capability on the Eastern Front and cleared the way for the great Soviet offensives of 194445.

Ardern and her poodles give major speech on absolutely nothing No Minister

From Granny:

In a show of unity, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has been joined by Government coalition partners New Zealand First and the Green Party for a major speech in Auckland in which she has outlined the next steps in the Government's plans for the country.
I read about this on Friday.  I really sat up and thought, "whoa, this could be big".  Even the introductory paragraph to the Herald article says it's a "major speech in which [she] has outlined the next steps in the Government's plans for the country".  I couldn't wait to see the major policy announcements - the socialist path they were taking us down. 

Instead we get a bunch of bullet points that a twelve year old could put together for a school assignment on "What does it mean for you to be  New Zealander".  Here are some examples:

Build a productive, sustainable and inclusive economy
Grow & share New Zealand's prosperity
Deliver responsible governance with a broader measure of success
Support thriving & sustainable regions
Transition to a clean, green and carbon-neutral New Zealand

Improving the wellbeing of New Zealanders and their families

Ensure everyone is earning, learning, caring or volunteering
Support healthier, safer, & more connected communities
Ensure everyone has a warm, dry home
Make New Zealand the best place in the world to be a child

Providing new leadership by Government

Deliver transparent, transformative and compassionate Government
Build closer partnerships with Mori
Value who we are as a country
Create an international reputation we can be proud of

My favourites are, "Ensure everyone is earning, learning, caring or volunteering", and "Value who we are as a country".  Followed closely by "Deliver responsible governnace with a broader measure of success".

I've never read such drivel from a government.  It's unmitigated trash, and is fit only for a year 9 social studies school assignment.

https://podcast.radionz.co.nz/mwatch/mwatch-20180916-0909-medias_ministerial_pile-on_prompts_reflection-128.mp3

The media seized on Clare Currans stumbles and many pundits wrote off her ministerial career before she pulled the plug last week. She cited intolerable pressure and said her mistakes were greatly magnified. 

Frankly, Adam finds it very hard to find much sympathy for Curran. Curran was the author of her own misfortunes. Furthermore the pressure was a function of her actions, and if anything her mistakes were not given as much profile as they might have, as many in the media were for sometime quite sympathetic if not to her, but to the Ardern regime.

More Fake news? No Minister


I'm not sure but the source is suspect.   CNN.

"Real life ironman - Elon Musk, has just announced that he is about to quit his position in Tesla in order to make room for a new business venture which he believes will change the world more than Tesla, SpaceX and Solar City ever could. His new venture is a Bitcoin Trading System and, although he didn't come up with the idea, he invested $770 Million in it which allowed him to control all of the Bitcoin News Trader decisions."

No other mainstream media have run with this story so far but it would not surprise me.

I'm waiting for the fifty million dollars worth of batteries he fitted up South Australia's hapless Jay Weatherill with to catch fire.    On a day when temperatures are hovering around 45 and winds are gusting to 90 kph.

It has been obvious for some time that the Tesla, as well as a monument to bullshit,  is a dog and without continuing massive subsidies will wither and die, as it should.

Former minister Clare Currans mismanagement has cost taxpayers $107,000.

Dumped chief technology officer candidate Derek Handley has been paid out more than $100,000 in compensation by the Government, Digital Services Minister Megan Woods has confirmed.

Woods said the Government had agreed to pay Handley compensation totalling $107,500 after deciding to put the recruitment process for the countrys first national chief technology officer on hold and rethinking the role. 

Woods issued the statement after Handley said the Government had reneged on a commitment to give him the job and paid him three months salary, and costs, as compensation.

Handley said he had decided not to keep the money, and would instead donate it towards a fund to support ideas, programmes and grants to tackle digital inequality.

Former communications minister Clare Curran resigned first from Cabinet and then as minister after it emerged she met Handley in February to discuss the job and then omitted to document the meeting in response to a
