Falklands heroes were told they “lacked moral fibre” as they suffered with horrors of war

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/falklands-heroes-were-told-lacked-11587195

 

^ I’ve posted this here as despite it be ‘current news’ - issues surrounding veterans care and their well-being after they leave the services dates back for a long time now historically - something that obviously wasn’t and still isn’t being addressed enough, either through funding - or adequate psychological, emotional and professional assistance - or just a helping hand.

'This map lets you see where your hometown was on the Earth millions of years ago’:-

https://edition.cnn.com/2020/08/30/us/map-hometown-earth-continental-drift-scn-trnd

 
'A California paleontologist has created an interactive map that allows people to see how far their hometowns have moved over 750 million years of continental drift.

Webster’s map visualization lets users enter their location and then plugs that location into plate tectonic models. The result is that users can see where towns and cities were located hundreds of millions of years ago.’

^ Some decent info from the various time-frames and ‘jump to…’ section too 👍
