A red dwarf is the smallest and coolest kind of star on the main sequence.
The most massive stars have the shortest lives. Stars that are 25 to 50 times that of the Sun (a yellow dwarf) live for only a few million years. They die relatively quickly because they burn massive amounts of nuclear fuel.
Sirius, the Dog Star. Sirius is part of the constellation Canis Majoris—the “Greater Dog”—which is where Sirius gets its canine nickname, as well as its official name, Alpha Canis Majoris. Not including our own Sun, Sirius is the brightest star in the sky. It is not the closest and it is a binary star, made up of Sirius A and Sirius B and lies 8.58 light-years from Earth. Our sun is a solitary star.
As far as I see it, to cope with debt, nearly all governments issue bonds/gilts, bought by their central bank and/or by pension/insurance companies, for example. Most countries have no problems authorizing this sort of arrangement. But in the U.S. they have a Congress, set up by their Constitution, which must (by law) authorise borrowing. Since the Congress is party-political there are increasingly hot arguments going on therein. .

The private provider of the 111 service across a large health economy is to have its contract re-tendered after its performance was deemed 'well below acceptable levels'. 1 day ago. Is that what you are worried about?
Thank you stt1, I agree that everyone makes mistakes. Each and every organisation. Full marks for pointing that out.
NHS 111 is for people who really do not need to phone 999 or feel unsure how serious there condition actually is, (need medical help fast, but it’s not a 999 emergency), or need health information or reassurance about what to do next. The usual triage pathways are applied, regardless of which service is called. Yes! I can agree to that, generally speaking.
Phoning their G.P. for an appointment, if patients are unsure about the seriousness of their condition, is unrealistic as they will not get an appointment unless they phone before a certain time in the early morning. If someone is not familiar with the system, e.g. recent immigrants, or confused and elderly, they may make the wrong choice, that is entirely understandable.
Where NHS 111 and GP OOH services are currently integrated, or closely aligned, there is probably a better chance of a successful outcome. I am not sure if NHS 111 has the same access to patient's records as the G.P. to which they are registered. Closer integration would be beneficial, providing that NHS 111 could easily access patient's records.
Channel 4 news tonight highlighted poor advice from NHS 111 that allegedly resulted in the death of a loving and caring family man. Numerous "potentially serious" incidents - including actual deaths - have been recorded in connection with the NHS 111 advice line. The daughter of a man who died from coronavirus has complained about the NHS 111 service, which she said did not treat his case with urgency. Ali Kiraz Ozel died at home in Southend, Essex, a few hours after his family phoned for help because he was struggling to breathe. His daughter, Sevtap Ahmet, said the decision not to send an ambulance "took away his chance of living".
Guess who has to apologise, the Government, i.e. Boris. It seems that NHS 111 is becoming a liability to the Government. But, hey-ho, the NHS is struggling and we have to make do with alternative forms of so-called 'help'.
You are making an emotional 'shouty' argument against a private practise working for the NHS. They are not all perfect and neither are TLY. Message boards like this will tend to fight with negatives to defend their stance.
There are undoubtedly seasonal and other variations in the profits of most companies. Corona is an example of one that was unforeseen. Connected TV and other tech advances are longer-term. Then there are the regulations applied to the adtech industry from outside, as well as the competitive changes within, e.g. Google's third party cookie and Apple's privacy changes that have a knock-on effect of others.
Seasonality is any predictable fluctuation or pattern that occurs during the same weeks each year. For instance, many publishers may have noticed that their CPMs increase during the holiday season. This could be the time near Christmas for countries such as the U.S. and the U.K. or the time near Diwali in India. A lot of companies divide their year into 4 quarters: Q1 (January to March), Q2 (April to June), Q3 (July to September), Q4 (October to December). Q1: Most publishers might be familiar with the term January slump. During the first quarter, advertisers are mostly focusing on devising new strategies for the year and therefore, spend less money on ad campaigns. Moreover, the purchasing behavior of users changes widely as well in January. They are less keen on buying things after the shopping spree for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year. Q2: This quarter is much better in terms of revenue generation for publishers. Since advertisers start spending their budgets into different campaigns and focus on experiments as well – all of which result in better revenue for publishers. Q3: Even though the July slump is not as bad as the January slump, it is a slump nonetheless. The two major factors leading to this decline is decrease in traffic and advertisers readjusting their budgets. While change in traffic depends on the niche of the publishers, advertisers rethinking their budgets impact everyone. Q4: Last but definitely not the least, Q4 is probably the best quarter for all publishers. End of the year witnesses a surge in the number of online users due to the high number of cultural holidays that fall in this time. Because of this, brands spend extravagantly on their ad campaigns. Publishers can leverage this and earn high revenue during this quarter.
