In reality, there is no evidence, and never has been any evidence, that God exists... none, not a single shred, ever in the history of the human species.

The faith is strong in this one. Your education is lacking.

Is the GPs statement that you've quoted wrong? If there is some evidence of the existence of a god, please let us know because if so, then I (and every other "non-believer") am obviously lacking some education as well.

Mumbai, India – June 3, 2014 – The insulation market refers to the industrial segment which ensures the manufacturing of insulating substances used to maintain the heat in buildings by dissolving the heat by using the techniques of radiation, conduction and convection. Insulating materials are also known to safeguard houses against adverse effects of fire, sound and impact. The insulation market has been growing at a steady pace over the years; research on the insulation market indicates that the global insulation industry is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.17% in the period between 2013 and 2018.

The report: Global Insulation Market 2014-2018 discusses the market trends and challenges witnessed by the global insulation market and throws light upon the major drivers propelling the segment forward.

Key drivers of the global insulation market
The insulation market has been growing steadily and is estimated to touch USD 56.68 billion by 2018. There has recently been an increased awareness about the steadily diminishing natural resources of the planet which has boosted the requirement for insulation in residential and commercial spaces. Consequently the constant usage of recyclable insulating substances has become one of the key trends that have been driving this market. Mineral wool, foamed plastics and fibreglass are some of the most frequently utilized insulating materials and while fibreglass is the most common material used worldwide, it is closely followed by foamed plastic which is more popular in the US. Additionally the developments in the construction industry especially in developing economies have further motivated the growth of the insulation market. Given the market conditions, the lack of awareness of its utility amongst consumers is the key challenge the industry faces particularly in emerging economies like China and India.

Key regions of the global insulation market
The global insulation market has been performing well in United States, Europe, Middle East and Africa as well as in the APAC region. Market experts speculate that the insulation market in the APAC region would expand by a CAGR of 9.2% by 2018. During forecast period, the North American region is also expected to grow considerably.

Key vendors of global insulation market
Knauf Insulation Group, Huntsman Corp., Rockwool Group, Owens Corning Group, BASF SE, Bayer AG, Carlisle Insulation Inc., Fletcher Building Ltd., Hebei Renqui Jinglian Group Co. Ltd. are some of the key vendors operating in the market space shaping the global markets in this segment.

The summary seems to suggest that there isn't much take up of this, with the comment, "Only four of the UKs ISPs have agreed to the 'Voluntary Copyright Alert Programme' so far". I think its worth pointing out that those 4 ISPs cover nearly 94% of the market...

Just to be clear here: the devastation is all due to the tsunami, not to the reactor failure. Foreign media seem to often forget or ignore that the disaster was the earthquake and tsunami. That's what killed almost 20k people dead and destroyed the homes of many hundreds of thousands of people.

Seems like TFA forgot that too.

Except it isnt, its an earthquake and tsunami wasteland..

Yes, I don't however see any data on their website about how wide they are planning to build the ring out.

From the website:- "1. Lunar solar cells To ensure continuous generation of power, an array of solar cells will extend like a belt along the entire 11,000km lunar equator. This belt will grow in width from a few kilometers to 400km."

This right here is the problem we in the UK have with attitudes to EU immigration, the belief that the UK is somehow a glorious land of opportunity that the unwashed masses of the EU are clamouring to get into. As a Brit, I can tell you it isn't, and if it wasn't for the ties of my family here, I would be long gone..

As our (UK) government seems so insistent on passing laws to undermine any sort of civil liberty we may have had and basically falling over itself to be the US's lapdog, while alienating us from the rest of the world, it seems to me that the EU is our best chance for undoing some of that damage. They may not be very good, but there a damn sight better than our government (including the opposition parties).

In every non-trivial program there is at least one bug.
