Was the word Ďconglomerateí widely used before Succession came out?

I just finished watching Succession about 3 weeks ago and I am sure it was either the first time I heard the word or first time I had heard it in years, but now I hear it everywhere. It was used on TAW recently, I recall.

Iím sure I heard it in an old advert for Prudential back in the 80s. :D

This sounds like a good example of the Baader  Meinhof phenomenon.

Maybe. I did know there was a term for similar - like the pregnant woman/crutches example. But Iím not ever sure I have heard this word before - that is why I think it stuck out.

Yeah itís quite a commonly used term, although a lot use it incorrectly thinking itís just another term for a big business, but itís for a business which is in multiple different industries.

Think itís definitely more of an American term though.

Called to add a 2nd driver to my insurance.

1st of all they said this can't be done on a temporary basis, and has to be until the end of the policy.
Then after taking the details, they told me they can't add the person on, and one of the reasons could be that they haven't had their licence for 10 years.

I've had this person on previous policies temporarily, and I haven't had my licence for 10 years either. Anyone heard of this before?

Seems a very strange one. I had an old mate over from New Zealand and wanted to put him on my car for 2 weeks as a runaround while he was here and that was no problem, they charged me £1, couldnt believe it was so cheap. I know beiong over 50 is a plus but that seems harsh, maybe ask him to get a quote for himself as a one off policy for the time needed or get back to them and ask to speak to someone more senior or knowledgeable.

I used to get added onto my sisters car sometimes for a short period but her insurance ended up making her do it for the rest of the policy term. This was a few years ago now.

Not heard anything about the 10yr rule personally, seems a very long time to expect someone to have had their license before allowing them to be added.

I've had her on my policy on at least 3 other occasions for short periods of time. I only passed my test 8 years ago, 7 for her. Bit weird that they are willing to insure me but not willing to add a 2nd driver and use that as a possible reason.

Not overly bothered. It's of no inconvenience to me.

This is my ex missus, who I don't really like, and I'm sort of glad so I don't have to feel uneasy about telling her I don't want her using my car  ;D

Was causing a bit of agro with my current missus who always cracked up when she found out I had let her use it. I didn't really see the big deal given it was just sitting at the train station all day and she'd have caused some shit one way or another if I said no. Now I have a valid reason for saying no  ;D

How does redundancy work? Last time I got made redundancy, I was given two months pay as I'd been there 2 years but my current employer are mentioning settlement agreement and that I have to run it by an employment solicitor, not sure I quite understand. Got the below

Not sure how old you are, but the UK statutory redundancy amount is 1 week for every year worked between 22 and 41, and 1.5 weeks pay for 41+, capped at 20 years. Max weekly amount is £538.

Unless your employer has a redundancy scheme of their own?

I'm really sorry, but this wall collapsed onto your car...

Used to get insured on my stepdads car before I got mine, so up til 2016 when I had it while he was on holiday, always just 2 weeks at a time and he never had issues getting me insured. Maybe they read RAWK and just didn't want to take the risk?

Car insurers change their criteria. Them accepting something in the past is no guarantee they will now.

Could be your current insurer just don't really want to offer temporary extra driver insurance anymore as it doesn't fit their risk criteria.

The French run on 230v supply, same as the UK, so cannot see any issue. The missus has UK bought straighteners, cloud 9s and its wired with a Euro 2 pin plug, which clips into a UK 3 pin. I'd probably look at rewiring the plugs to 2 pins just for convenience.

Anyone ever had an allergy test done?

I have had an issue with skin redness/rashes for about 2 years now, but they are becoming more frequent. I started taking pics and recoding what I eat but canít see an obvious link. I got one on my arm last Thursday and by Friday it hadnít gone, so did an e-consultation with my Drs and awaiting a response for them. But I wonder if itís worth doing an allergy test as I think they will just say take antihistamines (which I do a lot for hayfever) and note down what I eat.

But are they accurate? I donít want to get one, find I have issues with a few different foods and then actively avoid them all to see little/no difference. And for it to put doubt in my head over foods.

My brother in law had one a couple of years ago as was getting similar to what you describe. Heíd gone down the route of noting down everything he ate, changing washing powder, etc etc.

Turned out he was allergic to the metal his jean buttons were made out of and when the back of it rubbed against his skin it was giving him a reaction (although strangely not where the button rubbed).

On the other end of the scale my gf had one and it came back to her being allergic and intolerant to just about everything in life, so much so I considered buying her a bubble to live in. Sheís def not allergic to a lot they said as she can happily eat most of them without any reaction what so ever so in that case itís a load of shite!

My friend is allergic to peels. He can eat apples, almonds, zucchinis, eggplants, potatoes and many other nuts, fruits, vegetables normally. But only when they are peeled. Another friend of mine was allergic to the kitchen garden plants but only when cooked. You know, like lemongrass, parsley, mint etc. - the ones you grow in the kitchen. It took them little over 8 months to figure this out. Maybe this is something you could try if you haven't already.

But to answer your question, they are fairly accurate. They find out patterns of allergens and round-up on foods that you need to avoid. My colleague found out that he is seasonally allergic to a particular brand of milk as it turns out the milk comes from cows that eat a particular type of grass and hay, typical of the region where the milk is produced. So for the months of March-May/June, he shifts his brand of milk to something that's produced from cows with a more diverse intake. He hasn't had the problem since. He was able to get this done with the help of an allergy test.

I had an allergy test, many, many years ago.

It was a patch test on my arm, to see what I reacted to.



I think they are just meant as an indicator to show what you are generally intolerant to, and don't go into great detail.

That's for further more intense testing.

You can't send a link for a specific browser. It will just open in whatever is the default on your system. If you want to open it with another browser, either shift-right click it to get a 'open with' menu, or copy-paste it into the browser you want to use.

My mum's agreed to pay £380 to have her overgrown garden cleared and tidied. And charged extra to have the rubbish carted away.

Seems way steep to me and I think the guy (who's a neighbour) is taking the piss but I've never hired one so I can't say for sure.

Does anyone know ballpark on what a job like this should cost?
Or what would a reasonable hourly rate be?

Thanks everyone. O need to find out exactly what she's agreed to.... she's vague at the best of times!
Couldn't you just do it for her for free as a thank you for raising you  :D
She raised me really badly

Was in the gym on Wednesday doing deadlifts and heard and felt a pop and rip in my bicep, towards the elbow. Pain wasn't too bad but the muscle had moved up an inch or two, which was quite disconcerting at the time (as was the noise it made). Went to A&E but they sent me packing without really doing anything, just said they were going to refer me and to expect a phone call.

It's been a few days now and the pain has mostly subsided, my arm around the elbow just feels weak albeit much better than it was. It looks more normal as well. Weird thing is that the bruising has come up in the middle of the forearm? Nothing around the area that felt affected when it happened.

I've done some research and a distal tendon tear seems to fit with what I experienced when it happened, but then it doesn't feel as though its going to be that serious given the lack of pain now and the improvement I've experienced?

Anyone with any alternative theories? I don't hold out much hope of hearing from the hospital, which is annoying as I guess surgery should be pursued quite quickly if it has teared.
And if the rain stops, and everything's dry.. she would cry, just so I could drink tears from her eyes.

Iím so lucky that Iíve been allowed to study English for a year. Itís going well but I need help from you native speakers to explain a task. Itís a short one, but Iím struggling to solve it.

I am to explain the difference in meaning between these two sentences:
A. Iíll take the later bus home
B. Iíll take the bus home later.

IMO, ďlaterĒ in sentence A is a pre-modifier of the noun ďbusĒ. It means that the speaker will take a later bus home than originally planned.
In B, ďlaterĒ acts as an adverb and it means that the speaker, rather than take the bus home right now, will wait for a later bus.

Am I on to something here?
