In this series we tell the shocking stories of women whose possible homicides go unrecognised, and uncounted, by police. In the UK, we’re told that two women a week are killed by a current or former partner – but these are just the killings we know about. The true toll could be much, much higher. In Hidden Homicides, investigative reporter Louise Tickle uncovers harrowing cases of killers missed, of grieving families ignored by police, of a body left to decay in a hospital morgue, and of systemic police failings. It is produced by Tortoise Studios. To learn more, go to tortoisemedia.com/hiddenhomicides.

In the tropical-island region known as the Frees, magic is growing stronger, and gunpowder is becoming less reliable. Amid this world of “swashbuckling, intrigue, and a dash of magic,” two adventurers literally run into each other and are forced to fight together against pirates, sinister assassins and powerful merchant families, in the process developing a most unlikely friendship. Tesca is the Left Hand, a spy and assassin serving the Duke of Kohaya, ruler of one of the independent realms within the Frees. Kayrla is a sailor and sometime pirate with a few magical tricks up her sleeve. While fleeing the wrath of her former captain, Kayrla collides with Tesca, who’s on a mission of his own, and her captain, assuming them to be partners, sics his crew on both of them. Cutting their way free of the pirates’ wrath, the pair come to realize that they make a very effective team, but will their combined talents be enough to stop an assassin seeking the Duke’s life, and who appears to be more than a match for either Tesca’s blades or Kayrla’s magic?

Hi! I’m Brooke, a Politics and Sociology student at the University of Exeter talking about all things politics! Politics can seem really boring and full of white upper class men in suits but it doesn’t have to be. I want to change the stigma that politics shouldn’t be talked about at the dinner table – because it should! And that young people should be involved in politics as it shapes our future and the society we live in; which led to Politics & Pornstar Martinis! Left wing and mostly UK politics but nothing is off limits! Enjoy 🙂

I for sure and maybe like you, do not want to grow old gracefully and let the young push forward leaving us for dead. People like us want to get stronger, fitter, faster and better. Not just personally but in all areas of life and business. We may not know how to do it yet, but that will soon change.

As you can see I am the only male in the house (Even the dog is a Bitch) so if anything, Just by having a microphone to talk to could be a massive bonus in keeping my sanity. I love Coffee, even as I write this at 5.50am I am on my second cup. I don’t live the healthiest lifestyle at the moment. Lockdown 2020 hasn’t been good for my mental or physical health. I have struggled to come to terms with what has happened. I have 2 businesses, 1 looks after elderly people and the other is a gym where people come to get fit. Having these businesses give me a great insight into how we decline as we get older and what we can do to slow the process down. I see people everyday who are sick, tired and giving up. I also see people who are energetic, fit and healthy into very old age. At the moment I haven’t been looking after myself. I am over weight, tired and stressed. I see myself falling into the ‘Sick and tired’ section and I don’t like it. I also see myself getting left behind online. I have no idea how social media really works. I know it is the future and I need to learn to survive in Business. I know I can contribute but I don’t know how. So I will be learning how to change that as well. This Podcast will talk about my life and how I will change everything for the better, what I am doing and what I am learning. How I will build a following online from scratch. How I will improve and build my businesses, how I will go from overweight and unhealthy to fit, strong and fast and more importantly how I will together with my family build the best life possible. If that sounds like something you would want to do to, let’s do it together. My aim will be to post a daily Journal of what I have done and learned the day before and what I will be doing. I will talk about the struggles as well as the success. I’ll aim to provide content that will entertain and educate.So If like me you are Mid Life and you want to kick back time and improve on what you have make sure you tune in and subscribe.

A Podcast about the Bible Every two weeks, from two different countries, the two hosts of the Two Texts podcast pick two biblical texts to talk about.Dr John Andrews and Dr David Harvey share a mutual fascination with the Bible. Simple yet complex; ancient yet relevant; challenging yet comforting. But one thing that fascinates them consistently is that, like a kaleidoscope, no matter how many times they look at it there is something new, fresh and exciting to talk about.This podcast is designed for you regardless of how much or how little you’ve read the Bible. Grab a hot beverage, a notepad (or app), and a Bible, sit back, listen, enjoy, and learn to also become fascinated (or grow your fascination) with this exciting, compelling and mysterious book. John and David are two friends who love teaching the Bible and have both been privileged enough to be able to spend their careers doing this – in colleges, universities, churches, homes and coffee shops. The two of them have spent extended periods of time as teaching staff and leadership in seminary and church contexts. John has regularly taught at David’s church, and there was even a point where John was David’s boss! Nowadays David is a Teaching Pastor in Calgary, Canada, and John teaches and consults for churches in the UK and around the world. They’re both married with children (John 3, David 1) and in John’s case even a grandchild. In their down time you’ll find them cooking, reading, running or watching football (but the one thing they don’t agree on is which team to support). If you want to get in touch with either of them about something in the podcast you can reach out on [email protected] or by liking and following the Two Texts podcast on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. If you enjoy the podcast, we’d love it if you left a review or comment where you’re listening from – and if you really enjoyed it, why not share it with a friend?

Thus, a mature, still good-looking feather guy tried to fish the only so as not to feel so lonely. “Ding dong ding dong!” he heard the song, “From everywhere, filling the air…Shchedryk shchedryk, shchedrivochka, pryletila lastivochka.” Whoa! He was confused: she wasn’t a goose! How come her voice and curves, and manners kept him amused? “All birds of feather flock together,” told to himself Canada Goose unwilling to refuse arousing sense of passion; that carving figure hun – a swallow in his chat room barn – was fun. The proverb says, “Be on alert, like the red ant that moves with its claws open.” They did try both to see the worst first, however, ended up by having no alert, instead – they got goosebumps each day or night, as Goose popped up in “yesterdays” of hers, while Swallow would be filling his “tomorrows” with bright trills. The globe wheels! And soon, he crossed the ocean to ring her foot, and boldly promised happy ever after. No laughter! The Irish say, “It’s not a fish until it’s on the bank,” and their bank was full of grazing geese awaiting bargain. Some wise men add that “Step by step one goes very far” (if not the ruling body!). Hey, “You can’t be lost on road that is straight” unless “It’s much of law, and little justice.” Being jubilant, small Swallow took a chance to please the mighty flock, which claimed to be protecting Goose from every evil on the earth, supporting interests of the lakes, increasing riches – loud speeches. She sang her usual song, ““La da da da da, la da da da da…Hark how the bells, sweet silver bells, all seem to say, throw cares away…Shchedryk shchedryk, sgchedrivochka, pryletila lastivochka.” “You never know how a cow catches a rabbit,” they say in Holland. (Really?) Why? – That’s why! Surprise, surprise! Canada Geese saw graceful swallow as a specie from ‘distant garden of the poor, a black-white bird unable to lay golden eggs on their land, my friend. They said she hadn’t satisfied the chief she would be likely to have left the lakes soon after she had visited her match. Without search, Goose was the one inviting Swallow! In fact, presumption of innocence was smashed to pieces, and his opinion was laboriously ignored. Oh, Lord! “Who can’t pretend can’t govern,” the French remark here, “C’est la vie.” “A barleycorn is better than a diamond to a rooster,” the English posit – peeps experienced in life, as well as Swallow and Canada Goose, but not Canada Geese, who did refuse to recognize their buddy’s right to have her as a guest. Decision made: he’s better off without… Holy cow! “Beware of man’s shadow and bee’s sting” if you are not a king. Despite Canada Goose presented her a ring, nobody thinks it gives them right to stick together having Timmy’s and listen to the call of loons, while others say that “Justice once delayed is justice being denied;” all right, all right! Can anybody see there’s something wrong? It didn’t take the jury long to come to their verdict, only a few days. No interviews, no extra questions from the flock. They were sure hanging heavy lock on big guy’s door. Was Goose too short for them ‘get noticed or seemed not that well-feathered, therefore, ignored? Oh, well, as one of Geese commented once, “It’s not about flood control or any major matter of the breed; thus, matters of the heart with all their trills are not priorities to us.” Okay, “You can’t wake up a person who’s pretending ‘be asleep,” as people’s wisdom says, and it occurs, “Where might is being the master, justice is the servant,” eh? Nonetheless, “Where there are poor, there are rich. But where there’s justice, they are all brothers,” the Arab tell the truth of generations almost from the times the Earth was born. But it’s been ages since Canada Goose picked up the phone to listen to his darling’s song. Gave up on happiness or gone to make more loonies so as to please the flock and rock? “The fool who owns an ox is seldom recognized as fool,” advises folk – and, “You can cage the bird but you can’t make it sing.” In solitude, Canada Goose might think whatever, however, Swallow would, “better be a dog than a caged lion,” like some are used. A famous figure was Aesop, who thought, “Not only… feathers…make fine birds.” Should be the line where story ends; hence, “a bird never flew on one wing” – one wing dance has no sense. With that being said, it is so sad to know “a hero only could appear when ‘tiger’s dead.” Though, Maya Angelou once spread a clever word about ‘bird that “doesn’t’ sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.” So long! Try listening to ‘lonely swallow’s chimes once your mind roams beyond the scenes and figures vanish, leaving space for ‘bare soul with scars to go on stage and sing a hymn to love, “La da da da da, la da da da da…Hark how the bells, sweet silver bells, all seem to say, throw cares away…Shchedryk shchedryk, sgchedrivochka, pryletila lastivochka.” Proverbs and Quotes (used in “Carol of the Wings”) 1.

Carol of the Bells is a popular Christmas Carol composed by Ukrainian composer Mykola Leontovych in 1914 with lyrics by Peter J. Wilhousky. The song is based on a Ukrainian folk chant called “Shchedryk.” In the audio are used fragments of the Ukrainian Bell Carol (Carol of the Bells) – piano and instrumental cover version by Chelsey Joy.
