Mysterious Disappearance of Mary Seymour

European Royal History

Mary Seymour (August 30, 1548 – unknown), was the only daughter of Thomas Seymour, 1st Baron Seymour of Sudeley, and Catherine Parr, widow of Henry VIII of England and Ireland. Mary was born at her father’s country seat, Sudeley Castle in Gloucestershire.

Parents

Catherine Parr was the eldest child of Sir Thomas Parr, lord of the manor of Kendal in Westmorland, (now Cumbria), and Maud Green, daughter and co-heiress of Sir Thomas Green, lord of Greens Norton, Northamptonshire, and Joan Fogge. Sir Thomas Parr was a descendant of King Edward III, and the Parrs were a substantial northern family which included many knights.

Catherine was Queen of England and Ireland as the last of the six wives of King Henry VIII from their marriage on July 12, 1543 until Henry’s death on January 28, 1547.

About six months after Henry VIII’s death, she married her fourth and final husband, Thomas…

The Most Pointless Election Since 1965

James Bowden's Blog

2019 & 2021

We have just undergone a futile election which has produced substantively the same outcome as the previous general election in October 2019: a Liberal plurality around 15 to 20 seats short of a majority.

On 21 October 2019, Canadians elected the 43rd Parliament as follows:

PartySeat CountPopular VoteVote Total
Liberals15733.1%5,911,588
Conservatives12134.4%6,150,177
Bloc Quebecois327.7% 1,377,234
New Democrats2415.9%2,845,949
Greens36.5%1,160,694

As of around 0900 on 21 September, the preliminary results show that on 20 September 2021, we have elected a 44th Parliament virtually identical to its predecessor. The results in some ridings might change as Elections Canada counts the rest of the mail-in ballots this week, but the general result of a Liberal plurality at roughly the same level as two years ago will not.

Centrica Demand Billions Of Taxpayer Money

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

By Paul Homewood

A £1.6 billion plan to put Britain’s largest gas storage facility back to use in a new hydrogen-fuelled Net Zero era has been unveiled.

Just 19 miles off the East Yorkshire coast, a proposal to convert the huge Rough reservoir to handle the low carbon fuel – just as it did with gas – is being explored.

Bosses at Centrica Storage believe government delivering the right funding mechanism for the overhaul could provide a solution for the intermittent nature of both production and demand, while creating 350 permanent jobs and protecting hundreds more.

Thousands could be supported in construction, with new platform, pipeline and wells required..

Greg McKenna, chief executive, said: “We have some grand plans for Rough, subject to government backing. It is a £1.6 billion development, no-one is going to spend £1.6 billion if there isn’t some guaranteed return. We are looking for some government…

Pumped hydro more expensive than batteries: the calculations

Trust, yet verify

Now let’s take a look into the calculations that Ronald Brakels made to prove that hydro power (Snowy Hydro 2.0) is more expensive than battery storage (Hornsdale Power Reserve). His arguments were spread over many paragraphs and at first glance it was not very clear what he was calculating exactly and why. Therefor, I thought it might be a good idea to redo his calculations. This reconstruction will be the subject of this post and I will clearly write out all his calculations in order to better understand his arguments.

The calculation can be divided into three parts.

Why Do We Have Fewer Outbreaks? Epidemiological Transition: Crash Course Outbreak Science #3

Americans Are Getting Richer, but the Relevant Question is “How Quickly?”

International Liberty

Our friends on the left believe (or at least claim to believe) that the United States is an unfair nation because the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.

More specifically, they assert that the economy is a fixed pie and that when people like Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos become rich, then there is less prosperity for everyone else.

This is grotesquely inaccurate, as I explained earlier this year.

We have a great opportunity to revisit this issue because the Census Bureau just released its annual report on Income and Poverty in the United States. I went to Table A2 and created this chart to show how inflation-adjusted income has increased over time for the average household.

In other words, families are earning more, no matter how we measure the average (“median” is the household in the middle and “mean” is the average of all…
