I'm saying this highly likely to be pure bullshit.

The clothing business probably generates several times the revenue that music/vinyl sales do and they are probably just re-branding to focus on the clothing side of the business. Chemical Records would be a pretty whack name for a clothing focused company after all

Commercial diver?

I've been looking into getting into it recently just got to rack up (a lot) more dives first so can do my HSE certification. can earn up to 650 a day depending on where and what you're working on and as much as 350 a day for inshore work too. Will cost a fair bit to get qualified but there are more jobs than there are qualified people at the moment. Also lots of opportunity to get paid to travel too. Lots of other types of work instead of the usual oil rig stuff most people think of such as underwater camera work and diving for scallops as well. Two Thumbs

My old man goes out diving 2-3 months down in Dorset, Cornwall, Devon etc.... The club he is part of has their own hard bottom rib. Let me know if you want to go out with them anytime. Non member divers have to pay a nominal extra fee but its usually cool to do so.

1.) www.indeed.co.uk. Check it daily
2.) upload a business analyst, data analyst and 1st-3rd line support CV on Monster, Jobsite, Jobserve, CW Jobs & Reed. If you put one CV out covering all three areas large companies and recruiters will view you more as a generalist and not a specialist. That said SME's often like generalists so its a catch 22.
3.) LinkedIn. Make sure your profile is up to date and search for jobs on there.
4.) List all the companies you would like to work for / or likely to have work in your field. Then look at their careers pages for relevant positions.
5.) Be positive.

Surely the sniffer dogs would have been there to try and stop it happening ? The vast majority of "terror attacks" are foiled by the intelligence services before they happen no ? (we have all watched Spooks). Maybe they were acting on intelligence they had been given but were unsuccessful

Also are bomb sniffer dogs trained to detect multiple types of explosive or just one type like they are with drugs. If so I cannot imagine regular gunpowder (If this is what was used) is high on the list of explosives they are trained to detect. I mean its a bit 17th century  Undecided

I agree that agencies can get you work. I was with Robert Half a few years ago, they charge the client twice what you get paid, but it was work and I needed it. That was 6/7 years ago, so there may not be as much out there, but they can at least do some leg work for you. 

Agencies don't charge the client twice what you get paid that is a huge myth. It used to be higher around 25/30% but now its likely to be closer to 10-15% especially if you are working for a big company such Lloyds which have fixed margins with all of there suppliers.

33  General / The Forum / Re: More US / Israel Palestine Iran fail on: November 20, 2012, 20:58:07
The IDF are a bit cuntish. They will get away with what they can. While i have heard of many war crimes commited by under individuals and units in the idf and i fully accept the culture is one where these crimes are not pursued or investigated properly i still havent seen conclusive evidence that the IDF are deliberatly targeting civilians as a matter of policy. Hamas are. Hamas could also make it much harder for the idf if they didnt fire these rockets from beteen houses. the western press is relatively free in gaza and could then report the unnecessary bombing of the city dispite the lack of rocket launches. When that happens I will condem Israel unilaterally. Until then I believe both sides share responsibility.

Edit: edited because I was being a bit of a cock.. 

They have to fire them from between houses / residential cover really. If they walked into an open field and started firing rockets they would last 10-15mins before they were destroyed by airstrike or killed by attack helicopters. It would be suicide.

This is true but effectively your saying that the Hamas leadership are pursuing this policy to reduce their military losses at the expense of increased civilian losses...still doesn't sound much more morally upstanding than Israel's behaviour (which is sort of my whole point: it isn't entirely! one sided).


Anyhow good news: a truce looks imminent
 http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-20413625

Lets home both sides can restrain those who would see it broken and they can start looking for a way forward together

Morally right or wrong. I'm saying they don't have a choice. If they fired their rockets from anywhere else they would be obliterated. Firing them from residential areas gives the IDF a huge dilemma as deliberately firing on residential areas would clearly break international law. Hence why Hamas adopt this particular tactic. Lets not forget that Israel and the IDF have openly admitted to using "Human Shields" and they most certainly have a choice . They have the latest satellite guided weapons systems at their disposal that could take out a particular apple tree in an orchard. Hamas on the other hand have old Iranian / Russian technology that is about as accurate as wooden catapult

Good news on the truce

I can't believe people are having an argument in this thread.  Undecided

No arguement here, just a discussion of the merits of different sandwich establishments!!

If you like good ingredients and well cooked food you are a Southville hippy apparently. Also describing the cooking method.

Put the word 'Organic' in front of anything and raise the price and hippies will buy it, the same as jazzing up the origin of ingredients and originality of cooking methods. Good descriptions and marketing of your food does not make it good, but if this guys sandwiches really are the bomb then fair play to him  Two Thumbs


Put 'organic' in front of anything and it has to be produced to a set standard. Organic veg is questionable in in merits, but organic meat is guaranteed to be high welfare and have lived a much better life, which is nothing but a good thing.

You don't have to be a hippy to consider where your food comes from, or about how it's cooked.

If he's just used bog standard ingredients and added a few poncey descriptive words then fair enough, but I don't think that's the case, is it. Give me poncey, hippy food any day over mounds of mass produced shit.

I'm very considerate of where my food comes from and in the case of meat what its fed on ? (the vast majority of the time) Does this make one a hippy ?

So.......... I was finishing early today so took a tactical 11:15 lunch to avoid the inevitable lunch hour rush. Started chatting to said sandwich girl and managed to get a name, which is a start I guess. Conversation was flowing and it all seemed pretty positive. Advised said girl that I would see her tomorrow to which girl replied 'look forward to it'. Now I'm a master of sarcasm and certainly didn't detect any, this is a positive. Tomorrow I shall build on this foundation.

Who knew I could be so happy about a positive development in a complete stranger's love life?

This sounds very much to me like she would be quite receptive to an offer of a date. Good luck.

I have had a massive crush on a guy that works at The Watershed for ages. My friends keep saying I've got nothing to lose by asking him out but I'm a massive chicken. We did once devise a way of asking whether he was straight and single on a customer comment card but I carried it in my bag for ages and never gave it to him which is probably good because someone told me he has a child, which most probably means he's not available. I shall just admire from afar

If you live within a certain radius of the event you get guaranteed tickets.

I think you'll find a lot of tickets get registered to those addresses as a lass at work had 5 people registered at her house alone.
We had some of those once. They used to sell them through the little post office for about 60. We didn't realise you can only use them at a particular gate. So after being redirected it took us over 4 hours to walk tot eh correct gate. Glastonbury is BIIIIIG  Laugh

If that was Pylle Post Office and not Pilton. You probably bought them off my mum

If you live within 2 miles of the fence you get a free ticket or cash alternative. They also do local tickets for people that live between 2-10miles away I think as well. You got to pay for those ones though

Also tell her at the fresher fayre to look out for the stalls that are giving stuff away - we used to go straight to the Christian table because they gave out God Beans - tins of beans relabelled with Jesus Saves etc. Used to keep us fed for a while.

Oh man, we had a row of houses along the street and we'd dished out the pile of flyers across the houses. There was no end by date, or 'you must buy something else too' clause.

If you like Pasta try this bake I cobbled together yesterday evening

For the Pasta

Pasta, cook and drain and leave to one side

For the sauce

Fry some panchetta in olive oil until crisp, remove from the pan and set aside.
Gently fry an onion and three cloves of garlic (crushed) for three minutes
Add a teaspoon of dry Oregano and a teaspoon of dried chilli flakes and continue to cook until soft and golden
Put the panceetta back in the pan and add can of tinned cherry tomatoes (must be cherry toms) and crush with a masher
Add a very generous splash of red wine, some tomato puree and a squirt of Heinz chilli ketchup (or any other ketchup, just need a bit of sweetness)
Season well with salt and pepper
Cook uncovered for around 15mins, if it starts to get dry and some water.
Add a good few handfuls of spinach and stir until the spinach is wilted, then add some chopped basil, stir and take off the heat.

Mix your pasta and sauce together and spread about a third of it into the baking dish. Take a good ball of buffallo mozzarella and ripped it into tiny balls. Add around a third of these little balls to the pasta in the baking dish and then a few more spinach leaves. Add more pasta, more mozzarella and more spinach until you have filled the baking dish. Then grate over a load of parmesan, add a few more basil leaves and any leftover mozzarella and bake for 20mins
