2015 is not the end of UKIP
Despite UKIP failing to dramatically increase the number of seats for their party in Parliament from the 0 seat count in 2010 to the meagre 1 seat of Douglas Carswell in Clacton (a former member of the Conservative party), they did see a substantial increase in their vote count. This has seen an exponential rise ever since the General Election in 2001 where they gained 390,563, in the 2005 General Election they gained 605 973, in 2010 919,471 and finally in 2015 a huge boom of widespread popularity tallying 3,881,129 votes which was the third highest number of votes out of all parties standing for election after the Tories and Labour. These array of statistics showing results over the past 4 General Elections has proved how this is not the end of UKIP nationally as it continues to grow with its support both through the public and through the increase of Parliamentary candidates each term. If UKIP along with other parties are successfully able to push through a Westminster voting reform (similar to one of proportional representation), despite its relatively low priority on the public’s agenda presently, they will see a huge flux of Parliamentary candidates turning into members of Parliament.
Secondly, we can see that the recent General Election is not the end of UKIP due the ever-increasing and successful European campaign due to its hard Euroscepticism - urging the UK to leave the EU. As of the 2014 European Parliament elections, UKIP has the most seats with 22 out of 73 showing that their issue of being in the EU is shared amongst many other members of the British public. The pivotal moment in UKIP’s future will not necessarily be the election results from this year’s General Election, rather the In-Out Referendum for Europe in 2017 promised by the current Conservative government in 2017. Although, it could still be further argued that UKIP have evolved and further developed in its policies, encompassing its historical roots of right European radicalism with civic nationalist, economically liberal, and socially conservative policies resulting in the party moving away from being single-issue with functions similar to a pressure group.
Lastly, UKIP’s right-wing populism would seemingly still be supported, even after their failure at the recent General Election, as UKIP managed to gain a lot of popularity up in the north of England. In three seats in Sunderland, and one in Swindon, the results show the Lib Dem vote collapsed but Labour didn't benefit much. The UKIP vote, meanwhile, jumped. At a glance, going from Lib Dem to UKIP looks like a big jump: from a broadly left-wing party to a right-wing one. But actually, it makes a certain sense: the Lib Dems were the anti-establishment party in 2010, UKIP are the anti-establishment party now. Some Labour people believe it's happening. Alan Johnson, a former Labour Cabinet minister, says "The Lib Dem collapse hasn't come to us, some has gone to UKIP, some has gone to Tories." In the north of England UKIP’s vote swing since the 2010 General Election was the highest out of all the parties where in Blaydon they were up 17.5% since 2010, in Blyth Valley up 18% and in Hartlepool they were up 21%. Also, interestingly the Number of second place in seats UKIP won tallied to 125 showing their increasing power across England and Wales.

The End

...The End by Charles Olaleye It was January 1st 2015 when millions of people were shocked to hear about the death of Harry Styles. Police found him dead in the kitchen of his house. There was no murder weapon found on the scene of the death. When other members of One Direction were asked about the death of their former friend. They said they knew nothing of what could have happened to him. They said “he seemed like totally fine” What they did know was that he said he had to meet someone in a cemetery 10 minutes before he died. No one knows if that could have been the reason of his death. One month later police think they have a lead on the semi-recent shocking death of Harry Styles. A knife was found next to the dead body of Harry Styles. His body for some reason was found next to a tombstone that said Niall Horan on it. A little weird? The knife had no fingerprints on it and the body had no blood on it and looked completely fine. Then what could have caused this mysterious death? The grave under the tombstone that said Niall Horan on it was dug up by investigators and another clue was found. A hammer was inside the grave with a dent on it and the initials Z.M which could have stood for Zayn Malik. No one knows why that would be. Two months after the death of Harry Styles investigators have another lead on the investigation. Behind the tombstone that had the name Niall Horan on it was a gun that had the name Liam Payne on it ironically. Investigators asked Liam if......

The End of Man

...The End of Men Men have always been the dominant sex. It is a fact that the world is male-dominated. Even the bible is colored by sexism. The first human on earth was a man and the first woman was created from his bone. Man has always been at the top of the hierarchy. But what about the future? Is man determined to be the dominant sex? In the article “The End of Men”, Hanna Rosin thematises women’s increasing power and the fact that women is now the dominant sex. The article “ The End of Men” was written by Hanna Rosin and published in 2010. The article focuses on women’s increasing influence in society and how the balance of power is changing in favor of women. According to Hanna Rosin, women will be the leading sex in the future. In 2010, women became the majority of the workforce for the first time in American history. More women than men get good educations and when parents choose the sex of their children, they most often choose girls because they are of that opinion that girls have brighter futures than boys. The title of the article doesn’t refer to some apocalyptic future where women are the only living sex on earth but to the fact that men doesn’t have the same status as they used to. The title is very provocative towards men because it sounds like men will become redundant in the future. Women are taking over the political system and the economy. But is this really the truth? In the article, Hanna Rosin only refers to the western world’s shifting power......

The End of Race

...Dalai Lama, had an interesting discussion about the human race, where they both expressed a valid concern about its genetic future. However, they used two different approaches to prove their theories. The Dalai Lama, in 2005, wrote the book, The Universe in a Single Atom. In his chapter “Ethics and the New Genetics” Gyatso focuses on the benefits of genetic engineering and its enormous potential, while warning us of its harmful consequences. In contrast, but yet pursuing the same point, Steve Olson in his book “Mapping Human History” (2002) and the chapter “The End of Race: Hawaii and the Mixing of Peoples” traces the differences and similarities between people of various races and ethnicity. He uses the frequencies of genetic mutations in the mitochondria, migration from one continent to another and racially mixed populations where the target is the mostly American state of Hawaii. Should the world be concerned about the end of singular genetic ethnicity of each race? And is it going to happen? Race most likely will disappear as we now know. It seems to have been defined as two general groups-white and black, distinct from one another by only color of complexion. The white race will not be truly white, the black race will not be truly black, and the brown, yellow and red races will not be truly genetically ethnic either. What does race actually mean? According to Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English, the definition of race is “one of the main groups that humans can......

...ensure investment would be of a profitable enterprise6. Rothschild’s importance was not that of a mere fiscal nature; it should not be forgotten that Rothschild was head of one of the most successful financing firms in the world, and having invested over a million pounds in Rhodes’ company, Rothschild would not have been hesitant to push forward financial advice in order to ensure corporate success. It can easily be said that without the financial assistance of Rothschild, the amalgamation process would in all likelihood not have occurred; or if it had, Kimberley Central would have become the company with a monopolistic stronghold on diamond mining in the area, leaving Rhodes out of the picture. However Rothschild business with Rhodes did not end at consolidation of mines in Kimberley. A promising article by Hamilton Smith of the Exploration Company7 (initially a Rothschild founded and funded company)8 outlined the prevalence of gold in the Witwatersrand area. Having already set up business with Rhodes and gold mining in the Witwatersrand, Rothschild issued the South African Republic a £2.5 million government bond for the construction of ‘Railways… and other Public Works within the state’9. However the loan was primarily for the construction of railways, specifically the Delagoa-Railway ‘as a means to facilitate deep-level mining in the Transvaal’10. Rhodes was no stranger to the loan and was indeed in support of it, affirming his expansionist intentions to Rothschild in......

...Djenaba O’Connor Potter STS-900 20 April 2015 In The End… In the Heaven Scenario, all life on Earth will be subject to what technology wants to happen to it. Technology has progressed to the point of total control, but there is nothing to worry about. The technology is safe and everyone loves it. They use it to focus on the beauty and culture and the other fine things in life. Ideas that weren’t possible have come to existence. In the Hell Scenario, the technology that was supposed to safe us ends up condemning us. We will fight with one another, nation against nation, to gain control of the fast growing power of the technologies we built. But we will be so helpless, no type of agreement can be reached. Just like in the Heaven Scenario, things that were impossible before will come to pass. Only this time, they will be horrid things. In the Prevail Scenario, we humans begin to slowly take back the world we created for ourselves. Though technology will always be a part of who we are, what we do, and how we do it, we will control the technology. Not the other way around. As James Lanier put it, “Humans have an uncanny history of muddling through.” In other words, we will find a way to become relevant once more. We will find a way to come back from the corner we let technology back us into, and we will come out strong on the other side. No, it will not be easy, but it can be done. I am very much a people person and do not care so much for the many technological......

The End of Lifo

...The End of LIFO Jordan Stepney 9910 Pineville Rd Apt 205 Raleigh, NC 27617 Jordanjay15@yahoo.com 919-770-0972 ACCT525 Current Acct Issues Professor Sharon Brown 08/14/2016 Introduction An interesting topic that I chose is LIFO accounting. LIFO stands for last in and first out. LIFO is a valuation method of inventory. The other valuation methods of inventory is FIFO, which stands for first in and first out and weighted average. FIFO is a popular valuation method along with LIFO. LIFO has its advantages and disadvantages. The advantages of LIFO is that current product is measure along with its current revenues. The current market prices are matched up with current revenues. As for FIFO the older costs is matched with the recent revenues, which understates the profit. As for the LIFO it’s a great measurement of current profit and it understates the cost of goods sold, which more of a profit is created. History LIFO is the valuation of inventory. Well the word inventory deprived from England. LIFO was the first inventory valuation method to be used. The idea of LIFO was to match up current costs with the current revenues. In 1918 LIFO was first discussed in The Revenue Act during World War I. America discussed that LIFO shouldn’t be change and should remained the same as England described LIFO. In the early 1930’s the LIFO talk started to progress. In 1936 Board of Directors of American Petroleum Institute recommended that companies should use the...

...Lori Gibson English 101 09/21/2015 ‘Fag’ its Offensive When did the word ‘Fag’ become such a commonly used word? It used to just be known as a cigarette, or someone who was a very hard worker. But now it’s used harshly against homosexuals, most commonly males. But the thing is it isn’t just offensive to males, it’s offensive to whole LGBT community because the word is being used against someone who likes someone of the same sex. Hearing this word lights so many fumes in my body, being a homosexual myself. So many people use this word, too often without even thinking about the people around them. Maybe they didn’t mean it in an offensive way but it just isn’t a word you joke around with, not in today’s generation. To me using the word the fag is the same as screaming out the N word in a room full of African Americans. It isn’t okay, ever. It will always be offensive no matter how it’s used. This word is what makes kids afraid to be who they are. It’s a bully word and it causes so much pain. I told my friends about my sexuality in high school, never being afraid to be me, but there were so many kids afraid because of the harsh words used at my school. After I told my friends using words like these as a “joke” was a new but common thing for them. They thought it was funny, I never told them how many times a day they hurt my feelings. Some kids will purposely use this word to be mean and hurt a person’s feelings and I feel that’s why you can never tell when someone’s just......

The End of Men

...”The End of Men” by Hanna Rosin Hanna Rose is an American female journalist. The article “The End of Men”, written by Hanna, focuses on women overtaking a world that used to be based on a social system where only men knew the better way to a brighter and richer future. Rosin uses over one page to describe how couples prefer girls over boys. In the beginning Hanna Rosin underlines one important thing: “For years, women’s progress has been cast as a struggle for equality.” And she is right. For many years women just wanted to be able to do the same things as men. We wanted to work, we wanted to vote and most of all we wanted to live our lives without being suppressed by a male dominant. But times change, and now it is something different which drives women. On the one hand, she introduces Ronald Ericsson, which is an old biologist and cowboy, and his point of view. He says things like “He’s the boss” and “Breakfast at five-thirty, in the saddle by six, no room for Mr. Limp Wrist”, which I interpret as a gentle kind of male chauvinist thing to say. On the other site in this discussion, is Hanna Rose. She actually manages to convince an old cowboy, and makes him disagree with his own previous thoughts. Like for example: “These mothers look at their lives and think their daughters will have a bright future their mother and grandmother didn’t have, brighter than their sons, even, so why wouldn’t you choose a girl?”. Ericsson also tells about his highly qualified granddaughter......

End to End Congestion Control for Tcp

...IJCST Vol. 3, Issue 4, Oct - Dec 2012 ISSN : 0976-8491 (Online) | ISSN : 2229-4333 (Print) End-to-End Congestion Control for TCP 1 1 K. Pavan Kumar, 2Y. Padma Dept. of CSE, Usha Rama College of Engineering and Technology, Telaprolu, AP, India 2 Dept. of IT, PVP Siddhartha Institute of Technology, Kanuru, Vijayawada, AP, India Abstract Reliable transport protocols such as TCP are tuned to perform well in traditional networks where packet losses occur mostly because of congestion. However, networks with wireless and other lossy links also suffer from significant losses due to bit errors and handoffs. TCP responds to all losses by invoking congestion control and avoidance algorithms, resulting in degraded end-to-end performance in wireless and lossy systems. The proposed solutions focus on a variety of problems, starting with the basic problem of eliminating the phenomenon of congestion collapse, and also include the problems of effectively using the available network resources in different types of environments (wired, wireless, high-speed, long-delay, etc.). In a shared, highly distributed, and heterogeneous environment such as the Internet, effective network use depends not only on how well a single TCP based application can utilize the network capacity, but also on how well it cooperates with other applications transmitting data through the same network. Our survey shows that over the last 20 years many host-to-host techniques have been......

End of Life

...End-of-life care becomes an issue at some point for elderly clients. Even with the emergence of palliative care programs and hospice programs, the majority of elderly people do not die in their own home as is their preference. What are the reasons for this trend? Discuss what you can do as a nurse to support your clients in end-of-life care and in supporting their desires. Support your response with evidence-based literature. Many palliative care patients would prefer to receive care, and to die, at home. Despite of this, many die in institutions. The need for the healthcare provider to discuss plans for discharge with most inpatients reinforces expectations of a choice of place of care. However, many palliative patients do not have a choice of care at home. A significant proportion of patients experience an emergency admission from home, after which it may not be possible to arrange discharge. Reasons for admission often reflect a change in the patient's condition, which may not necessitate inpatient care, but for which alternative arrangements cannot be made rapidly enough (Wheatley, et al, 2007). There are nearly 40 million senior citizens in the United States. But in the next 30 years, that number is expected to double to 80 million as Baby Boomers and their parents reach age 65 (CDC,nd). And each year, one-third of the people who die suffer from a chronic illness. For every one of these deaths, there is a patient and a family faced with difficult decisions about care...

Ukip Facts and Figures

...United Kingdom Independent Party (UKIP) UKIP is right wing political party founded in1993 with overall objective from the United Kingdom to leave the European Union and for UKIP to create a right-wing Britain. UKIP is a minority party in British politics with only one seat in the House of Commons and three seats in the House of Lords History UKIP was created in 1993 by Alan Sked and other members of the cross-party Anti-Federalist League (The Anti-Federalist League being a small cross-party organisation in Britain, formed in 1991 to campaign against the Maastricht Treaty). Alan Sked was then leader from 1993-1997 doing little to move UKIP into mainstream politics mainly due to UKIP being overshadowed by the bigger Referendum Party. Alan Sked then left in 1997 due to the growing influence of radical, far-right opinion in the party's ranks and the idea of taking up MEP places at European Parliament if seats should be won there, instead of focusing on trying to get UKIP seats at Westminster. UKIP slowly gained ground after the resignation of Alan Sked under Michael Holmes (UKIP leader from 1997-2000) and Roger Knapman (UKIP leader from 2002-2006) with Michael Holmes causing UKIP to gain three seats and 7% of the vote in the 1999 European Parliamentary elections. This also helped by the leader of the Referendum Party dying and therefore it being disbanded. Roger Knapman caused UKIP came third with 12 MEPs being elected in the 2004 European Parliamentary elections. In......

End of Life

...day. Being faced with our own mortality or that of a loved one, is a subject that’s very emotional, and some very difficult decisions will have to be made. But who should be making those decisions? The patient, families, the doctors? Should someone, who just received devastating news and is on an emotional roller coaster, make end of life decisions? How about the family members, who are so grief stricken and praying for a medical miracle, are wanting everything done no matter how bleak the outcome. What about the hospitals and doctors who know the cost associated with end of life care and realize that there is no real impact on curing or changing the outcome. They feel that resources should be spent on patients with better prognosis. In helping with some of these hard decisions the law makers in the state of Texas came up with the Texas Advance Directive Act. But the law has come under heavy criticism in recent years involving a few cases that received national attention. The Advance Directive Act passed into law in 1999 by then Gov. George W. Bush. With the passing of the act, Texas became the second state to pass regulation regarding end of life treatment.1 The law addresses and provides information on three different advance directives, the Directive to the Physician (living will), Medical Power of Attorney, and Out of Hospital DNR. A Directive to the Physician (living will), allows the patient to make their own wishes known about future medical treatments.......

If the answer is greater than 10, place the last number under the column and any remaining numbers above the column directly to the left (commonly referred to as "carry over"). 3. 3 Add all columns in the same manner as step 2, being careful to remember any numbers that carried over from the previous column. 4. 4 Place a decimal point in the answer directly below the decimal point in the numbers above.
