    • 2 foot of sea level rise   The Thwaites Glacier — dubbed the “Doomsday” glacier because of the grave impacts for global sea level rise if it melts — is breaking down “much faster” than expected, according to a peer-reviewed study published on Monday in the academic journal, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Using satellite imagery, scientists determined that widespread contact between the glacier and warm ocean water is speeding up the melting process. The climate crisis is interrupting natural processes across large parts of the continent, according to the Antarctic and Southern Ocean Coalition. The glacier, roughly the size of the United Kingdom, could cause global sea levels to rise more than two feet if it melts completely, according to the study. “Thwaites is the most unstable place in the Antarctic and contains the equivalent of 60 centimeters of sea level rise,” study co-author Christine Dow said in a statement. “The worry is that we are underestimating the speed that the glacier is changing, which would be devastating for coastal communities around the world,” she continued. Read the full story here.       or here ... from the India civil service currents affairs exam Doomsday glacier Antarctica‘s Thwaites Glacier, roughly the size of Britain, is a fast-moving glacier in West Antarctica. Because of the risk it faces — and poses — Thwaites is often called the Doomsday Glacier. Because of its size (1.9 lakh square km), it contains enough water to raise the sea level by more than half a metre. Thwaites’s melting already contributes 4% to global sea level rise each year. Thwaites are important for Antarctica as it slows the ice behind it from freely flowing into the ocean. Credits: BBC Vigorous melting Salty and relatively warm ocean water is infiltrating beneath Thwaites Glacier, leading to significantly speedy melting. This process, termed as “vigorous melting“, is eroding its stability. However, its potential collapse could lead to a staggering 10-foot rise in sea levels, posing a dire threat to coastal communities worldwide. Previous studies discovered a deep connection to the east through which deep water flows from Pine Island Bay. That study also attributed the melting to the heat transport caused by channels bringing warm water towards the glacier from the north. With melting, glaciers become light and float off the land where they used to be situated. The resulting retreating grounding line exposes more of a glacier’s base to seawater, increasing the risk of melting. Since the late 1990s, the glacier has seen a 14km retreat of its “grounding line.” The grounding line is the point where the ice flowing off the land and along the seabed floats up to form a huge platform.   https://www.pmfias.com/current-affairs-for-upsc-civil-services-exam-may-28-2024/   or here Satellite data reveals Antarctica's Thwaites Glacier is melting faster than we thought | Space WWW.SPACE.COM Seawater rushing miles beneath the glacier makes the ice more vulnerable to melting.

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 
       

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

Good Evening,

 

I have a question about my 'available balance' on my Lloyds Bank account.

 

 

I paid a cheque into my account for £2,500 and

when I checked my balance later,

it showed I had £666 available to me,

this being after I had made some withdrawls from my account.

 

Furthermore, I was puzzled by this because I have an o/d of £600 and I was into it by about £510, approximately.

 

 

I got paid by my employer and found I had roughly £208.00 in my account, credit. I made a withdrawl of about £120.00 there and then.

 

All I can assume is that my available balance includes my planned overdraft limit, is this correct?

 

I have about £147.00 now of my available balance available - therefore, what happens once my cheque of £2,500 has cleared?

 

What would be my final account balance?

How would the bank work this out?

I am VERY confused.

 

 

Also, I've heard a bank can recall your o/d at any time.

 

 

Does this mean that because I have already paid in a substantial amount into my bank account, that I have in essence, cleared my o/d?

 

Sorry if this sounds confusing but I am confused.

When did you pay the check in?

 

As it will not show until it has cleared, which is approx 3/4 working days. When it does clear you will then be able to see your account will be in credit by the cheque amount plus any other credit or minus any OD you have used.

 

Your Bank will/should not withdraw your OD facility, just because your in credit.

 

So this would mean for you as an example, once your cheque clears you will have £2500 + £600 OD available, meaning you would have access to £3100.

 

I hope this helps in making it less confusing for you.

I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every single minute of it!!

Hi RainbowTears,

 

my current balance was £2566 when I checked and I had an available balance of £666,

which includes the overdraft plus any available credit.

 

 

Therefore, upon recent checking, I have £147.00 available.

 

 

As I use my available balance, my account balance decreases.

 

 

Therefore, say for argument's sake my account balance was £2,500 and I used all of my available balance (which was my o/d) of £600

and my account balance was £1900.

Does that mean that my final account balance would be £1900? This is VERY confusing.

 

Thanks for any help.

 

Best,

Robin.

Right, the £2500 has been assigned to your account, but the funds have not yet cleared, so aren't available to withdraw yet.

 

there's a few day 'clearing period' where the funds are requested from the cheque writers bank, and then transfers into the receivers bank.

 

 

The cheque could bounce (no funds in the writers bank) - so the bank don't let you access the funds until they are happy they will get the money.

Griffzilla,

 

I have sent to you a PM. Basically, what I need to know is the following:

 

I have £2500 as my account balance and available balance of £600 (this is my overdraft, I am assuming). Each time I use it, my account balance decreases. Therefore, once my cheque has cleared, would my final balance, lets say I used all my available balance, would be £1900 and if my Overdraft hadn't been removed, then I would have access to £2500?

 

This is the part which is confusing me.

Once cheque clears & as you are £600 OD.

 

Then your credit balance is £1900 (your own money) along with £600 OD (Banks money) giving you a total figure of £2500 available to you if you needed it.

I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every single minute of it!!

Thanks RainbowTears, that has sorted everything out for me now. However, the available balance doesn't show that I am OD, just what is available to me - a very clever trick by the bank that has been used there, in my opinion. Talk about lulling customers into a false sense of security. Still, I have paid off my OD now with the cheque, so that's good!

yep RT's got it in one...correct..

 

 

an OD is not credit and never shows as a +£600

the account will let you go -£600 that's the OD

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

In my opinion then, the Overdraft should not show as available funds as this is very misleading and can lead customers into a false sense of security - I feel like telling my bank I am not happy, but would I be silly doing this? I don't know, but I'm not happy because people who are not savvy in these subject matters could find themselves walking into a trap. Ouch!

 

Anyways, thank you for your help, totally understand this now. Its not a major issue for me at all, I just wanted to understand the principles as other websites that dealt with the subject matter were very limited in their explanations.

 

Happy New Year!

 

Thanks,

Robin

The above information isn't even true, so don't let it catch you out robinsky.

 

As you have found out, as soon as you pay the cheque in it will reflect in your account balance (not your available balance).

 

4 working days from the following working day that you pay the cheque in, the funds will become available (so reflected in your available balance too now).

 

However, the money is only considered cleared 6 working days from the following working day that you pay the cheque in. Up to this point the cheque can be returned in which case both your account balance and available balance will decrease.
