History[ edit ] The first minted coins[ edit ] The earliest metallic money did not consist of coins, but of unminted metal in the form of rings and other ornaments or of weapons, which were used for thousands of years by the Egyptian , Chaldean and Assyrian empires. The best metals for coinage are gold, silver, platinum, copper, tin, nickel, aluminum, zinc, iron, and their alloys; certain alloys of gold, silver, copper and nickel have the best combination of the required qualities. The Lydian innovation of manufacturing coins under the authority of the state spread to neighboring Greece, where a number of city-states operated their own mints. Some of the earliest Greek mints were within city-states on Greek islands such as Crete ; a mint existed at the ancient city of Cydonia on Crete at least as early as the fifth century BC. The manufacture of coins in the Roman Empire , dating from about the 4th century BC, significantly influenced later development of coin minting in Europe. The origin of the word “mint” is ascribed to the manufacture of silver coin at Rome in BC at the temple of Juno Moneta. This goddess became the personification of money, and her name was applied both to money and to its place of manufacture. Roman mints were spread widely across the Empire , and were sometimes used for propaganda purposes. The populace often learned of a new Roman Emperor when coins appeared with the new Emperor’s portrait.

Claire Machin, who lives next door to Tesco in Northend Road, described the incident on Tuesday afternoon at 4pm as “the worst thing I have ever experienced in my life” as she feared for the safety of her seven-year-old son. While Claire stood at the checkout with her two-year-old daughter in the pram and talked to her friend, her son was standing by the door of Tesco when she claims about 13 armed police officers ran inside.
Amid reports a man carrying a shotgun was on the loose, Ms Machin said she did not see the suspect holding a weapon when he was arrested, but said she saw officers pin a teenager in a red T-shirt up against the wall. Despite the chaos of the incident, which “seemed to last for hours”, Ms Machin said her only concern was for her son, who tried to hide during the ambush.
Tesco announced in January it was “simplifying” the scheme and changing most to three times face value. However, after an angry backlash from customers, it postponed the changes until tomorrow.

Tahiti-Mo’orea map Tahiti from space Tahiti is the highest and largest island in French Polynesia lying close to Mo’orea island. The island consists of two roughly round portions centred on volcanic mountains and connected by a short isthmus named after the small town of Taravao which is situated there. The archipelago is a part of French Polynesia , an overseas collectivity of the French Republic situated in the central Southern Pacific Ocean.
Tahiti Nui is heavily populated along the coast, especially around the capital, Papeete. The rest of the island is encircled by a main road which cuts between the mountains and the sea. Tahiti’s landscape features lush rainforests and many rivers and waterfalls, including the Papenoo River on the north side, and the Fautaua Falls near Papeete. The chain is oriented along the N. Due to the plate movement over the Society hotspot , the age of the islands decreases from 5 Ma at Maupiti to 0 Ma at Mehetia , where Mehetia is the inferred current location of the hotspot as evidenced by recent seismic activity.
Maupiti, the oldest island in the chain, is a highly eroded shield volcano with at least 12 thin aa flows, which accumulated fairly rapidly between 4. Bora Bora is another highly eroded shield volcano consisting of basaltic lavas accumulated between 3. The lavas are intersected by post-shield dikes. Tahaa consists of shield-stage basalt with an age of 3. Raiatea consists of shield-stage basalt followed by post-shield trachytic lava flows , all occurring from 2.

Aldi, Lidl, Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Asda and Morrisons are urgently recalling more than 20 products which could pose a risk to people’s health. Undeclared ingredients and product mix-ups have prompted supermarket giants to remove a long list of items which pose allergy risks from their shelves.
You can find a full list of recalls on the Food Standards Agency’s website here. No other Lidl products are known to be affected. Walkers The Midlands crisp manufacturer is the go-to for many crisps fans but if you’re a Sensations Thai Sweet Chilli fan, be warned. Walkers is urgently recalling a flavour of its popular crisps – because they pose allergy risks.
The crisps are being taken off shelves – because it hasn’t correctly emphasised on the packets that the snacks contain wheat. Products containing wheat – and therefore gluten – can be a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to gluten. Symptoms include diarrhoea, abdominal pain, bloating and flatulence, indigestion and constipation. Affected packets contain best before dates of January 29, and earlier. Crisps with best before dates of February 2, and after are not affected.
Walkers says customers with one of the affected packs, should call the Walkers Consumer Care Line on to receive a full refund. This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents.

Trading profit slashed, market share falling, no final dividend and a potential catalogue of challenges, complaints, possible court cases and investigations all point to a fraught future. So how did it get to this? Tesco has been hit by a structural realignment of the UK grocery market.
