They don't just hand over a bag of cash, the biggest benefactors will be Japanese businesses. Ukraine will get a bunch of Japanese medical supplies, Toyota trucks, Mitsubishi pumps, .....etc

Don't give in to the religious fanatics. If it is "illegal" to burn these books then just tear out the pages and offer as free toilet paper. Or better still, how about the religious keep their religion to themselves in private and the rest of us just leave them to it and don't deliberately try to cause offense?

She donated $50 million to her roadies and truck drivers after her last tour. Serious life changing money for most of them. She didn't have too. Maybe the world needs more people like her.

It’s also unclear whether the Tokyo metropolitan government’s coffers are so full that it’s willing/able to cover the loss of tuition from families earning more than 9.1 million yen all by itself, or if the expanded benefits will be financed by increased taxes, and which sections of society will be paying them.
I can assure you the coffers are not full and someone will be paying for others kids to get educated.

Girls, there are a lot of men out there who see your children born to other fathers as "left over reminders" of your past. You don't need these men. Your kids really don't need them. Keep looking. there are also some good ones out there!

It does not say he negotiated with them, or that they begged for him or anything, it is simply assumed they would be better under the care of the superior individual.
No it doesn't say he begged them. It doesn't say that he didn't kindly invite them either.
It is YOU doing the assuming.

If you honestly do not see how this clearly reads as one whole race of people being inferior and needing rescue by someone being represented as superior I don't know what could be racist in your eyes.
No, YOU read it in that way. It does not mention anyone "needing rescue" or "being inferior". That is YOUR interpretation.

Just facing reality, the Ukrainians cannot "win". Throwing money and lives away is not a smart move.
The US/NATO miscalculated and lost. Get over it, they did Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan....

All British citizens regardless of their ethnicity should be able to marry whoever they want without restrictions
They can, nobody is stopping them.

The new rules should have excluded British citizens and foreign spouses.
No, that would defeat the original reasoning for the rule.
Stopping Pakistani British men (mainly) from marrying their first cousins and bringing them to the UK.
It's not politically correct for politicians to mention this, but if you research... It's all therein the parliamentary proceedings.

“They belong to a tribe of tiny miniature pygmies known as Oompa-Loompas,” . “I discovered them myself. I brought them over from Africa myself – the whole tribe of them, three thousand in all. I found them in the very deepest and darkest part of the African jungle where no white man had ever been before.”
There is nothing overtly racist in this passage, unless you are looking to be offended.

Many couples cannot return to the UK with their foreign spouse because they cannot meet the requirements.
The real reason for this was to try to prevent mainly Pakistani British marrying their cousins and bringing them back to live in the UK. It failed miserably so why they think upping the requirement will make any difference is a mystery. They have a loophole that allows you to come if you can show 64,000 pounds in your bank account for three months prior to application. Families group together to provide these funds.

Meanwhile the head of the Ukraine military is in "private" talks with Russian generals and the mayor of Kiev has spoken openly about ending the conflict as it is unwinnable.
The money and weapons they poured in are gone, the super offensive was a total failure, Ukraine actually lost territory. The war is done, NATO lost. Only thing left is to decide where to draw the lines on the map (pretty close to where they are now) and how many more Russians and Ukrainians get to die.

This is obviously the "revenge" of that organisation. As usual, the innocent are the ones to suffer.

Stefan... 31 people died from Chernobyl, zero at Three Mile Island, zero at Fukushima, zero from radiation at Windscale but 32 in the fire...
In terms of death pretty cheap, especially when compared to coal mining and the pollution from fossil fuels.
But we also need to take into account the clear up costs at the atomic stations. Definitely not cheap.
