'Significant' lithium find spurs hopes of Cornwall regeneration

Discovery of high-grade metal used for electric car batteries found near historic tin mining area at Redruth

Reserves of lithium described as “globally significant” have been discovered in hot springs within Cornwall’s historic tin mining area.

Initial results of testing suggest some of the world’s highest grades of lithium are to be found in geothermal waters in the far south-west of Britain, according to a mineral exploration company.

Nancy Pelosi Doesn't Rule Out Using Impeachment To Stall Supreme Court Nomination
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Sunday left open the possibility of using the impeachment process to prevent the Republican-controlled Senate from confirming a new Supreme Court associate justice in the next few months.George Stephanopoulos, host of ABC’s “This Week,” told Pelosi that some people have suggested the House could move to impeach President Donald Trump or Attorney General William Barr “as a way of stalling” the judicial nomination process.“Well, we have our options. We have arrows in our quiver that I’m not about to discuss right now,” Pelosi said before pivoting to discuss the upcoming election and the coronavirus pandemic.“This president has threatened to not even accept the results of the election with statements that he and his henchmen have made,” she said. “So right now, our main goal ... would be to protect the integrity of the election as we protect the American people from the coronavirus.”Stephanopoulos pressed Pelosi: “But to be clear, you’re not taking any arrows out of your quiver? You’re not ruling anything out?”Pelosi hesitated before responding, adding that Democrats will use “every arrow in our quiver” to protect democracy.“We have a responsibility,” she said. “We take an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. We have a responsibility to meet the needs of the American people. That is when we weigh the equities, protecting our democracy requires us to use every arrow in our quiver.”“We have our options. We have arrows in our quiver that I’m not about to discuss right now,” Speaker Pelosi tells @GStephanopoulos when pressed on what Democrats would do if Pres. Trump and Republicans push a SCOTUS nomination ahead of the Nov. 3 election. https://t.co/MCxVZDHboUpic.twitter.com/9Rd1sXdIQW— ABC News (@ABC) September 20, 2020The House impeached Trump in December, and the Senate ultimately acquitted him in February. Many of his Republican allies have called for the swift filling of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat following her death on Friday.Ginsburg, 87, died from complications of cancer. She was one of the court’s most liberal judges, making Republicans eager to fill her seat with a conservative. If they succeed, the court will have a 6-3 conservative majority among the justices.  Hours after Ginsburg’s death, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky said that Trump’s nominee will receive a vote on the Senate floor. Trump said Saturday that he will announce his nominee “next week” and that the person “will be a woman.”Democrats called out Republicans’ hypocrisy in pushing to fill a Supreme Court vacancy before the November presidential election. In 2016, McConnell blocked a vote on Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland, whom then-President Barack Obama tapped to fill the vacancy created by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia.McConnell said at the time that a confirmation vote would come too close to an election and that the winner of the 2016 election should pick the nominee. Scalia died 269 days before the 2016 presidential election. Ginsburg died 46 days before the 2020 presidential election.Republicans hold a 53-seat majority in the Senate. If three GOP senators defect and oppose Trump’s nominee, Vice President Mike Pence could break a tie vote.Two Republican senators said recently that they would oppose holding a vote on a Supreme Court nominee ahead of the election.Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), who faces a tough reelection battle this year, told The New York Times Saturday that the winner of November’s election should choose the next Supreme Court nominee.Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) said Sunday that the nomination process should wait until after the election.Related...

The right diagnosis and treatment for dyslexia | Letters
Behavioural optometrist Irfaan Adamally on oculomotor dysfunction, Dr Neville Brown on the success of Maple Hayes Hall school, and Prof Brian Butterworth on the even more severe consequences of dyscalculiaMy heart leapt when I saw your long read (The battle over dyslexia, 17 September), but returned rapidly to its normal position as I read it. No mention of the new rules for dyslexia assessors in schools. No mention of oculomotor dysfunction. No mention of behavioural optometry. How disappointing.Dyslexia, an information processing error in the brain, certainly exists, but many of the children diagnosed as dyslexic are suffering instead from oculomotor dysfunctions of the eyes. To read fluently, the eyes have to perform five processes simultaneously, and a surprising number of people can’t do them all satisfactorily. But when these people go to an optometrist and read the chart, they do so perfectly well. That’s because reading one letter at a time is a static process, unlike reading paragraphs of text, which is dynamic, so they go undiagnosed. Some children shuttle back and forth from optometrist to hospital for years, sometimes even resorting to surgery, when the solution is often simple: a course of “physiotherapy” for the eye known as vision training.
