Ive worked in Doha, the Tunisian and Algerian Sahara. Both very toasty as well. Light weight coveralls where banned too. :( So full length regular weight ones where a pain. But it was a dry heat so did not mind it much, Sinapore and working in Australia off of Broom was very humid, as was the Congo and The Ivory Coast. I miss escaping the winters here for these warmer places. 

 

What do you do on the Drill Floor?

A bit of a lighthearted distraction (but with large scale economic, social, environmental and business implications:

Supermarket chain Morrisons will be the first supermarket in the UK to offer food past its 'best before'...  

 

Reducing ‘waste’ surely has to be a massive business benefit - reduced costs. 

 

Selling must be better than paying for removal. 

 

The morality of skipping food that has been resource heavy in production / delivery and when people are hungry is just the most bizarre situation. 

 

Im torn between thinking ‘good show’ for making a positive step forward and bewildered that we’ve even reached the point where food goes to land fill. 

 

Evening MrJ . Most of supermarket food waste now goes to anaerobic digestion plants where the methane gets extracted to drive power generators.

Most of the big chains donate the useable surplus to food banks etc but their ordering processes have been well tightened up (legislated) so that less ‘surplus’ is generated. Hence the empty shelves.

Not sure how much profit comes from the energy produced, but I’m sure the recycling companies do well out of the weigh-bridge revenue.

Not a very exciting article, but you know something's not right when the government is effectively suing itself

 

WWW.BBC.CO.UK

The legal action is part of a dispute over the Northern Isles service contract awarded to Serco.

 

Now this is funny. :D Also sad, but funny.

Nice to see some objectivity and impartiality during Trumps impeachment proceedings.
