In the UK, the Queen still sends people telegrams on their 100th birthday.
Dogs can hear higher frequencies than humans, but MP3 and FLAC have nothing specific to do with sampling frequencies. You can encode 44.1KHz or 96KHz into FLAC or MP3 if you are determined to do so.
Actually you would have to extend the MP3 spec first. The highest sampling frequency it supports is 48kHz.
And even then, they're not always accurate. I'm listed in the developer credits for 6 minigames on a certain portal; for five of them, I was the sole developer, but in the 6th my contribution was a day or two integrating the final graphics. On the other hand, I'm not listed in another game for which I did the same, or in one for which I did about half of the dev, or the ones for which I did some of the level design.
On the other hand, it was long enough ago that I only name one of them on my CV now, so I'm not too fussed.

Your browser appears to have a misfunctioning spellchecker which has "corrected" HL7 into XML.
Sirimavo Bandaranaike? Indira Gandhi and Golda Meir were also PMs before Thatcher (and Eva Perón was President).
Sharia courts aren't a "legal system" as such in the UK: they're a form of binding arbitration which is an alternative to an actual trial if both parties agree to it, whereas the impression your post appears to give is that a non-Muslim could be helpless to avoid being tried under Sharia law.
The UK isn't the US. It doesn't do unrelated riders. That's a part of US legislative culture that we Brits have a hard time understanding.
It hasn't finished going through the Commons yet. That was only second reading.
What does that have to do with the price of fish?
You're making the mistake of taking the summary at face value. If you follow the link, the actual motion was "I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time." It's rare for anything not to get a second reading: it's only the second stage of 11 (not counting royal assent).
