Ban on discarding edible fish caught at sea has failed – Lords report

Implementation of ban ‘inadequate’ and has resulted in more waste, says Lord Teverson

The ban on the wasteful discards of healthy and edible fish at sea has failed, according to a Lords report. Despite its enormous popularity with the British public, the measure has been poorly implemented in the UK and the result is more fish being needlessly wasted.

The implementation of the discards ban has been “inadequate” according to Lord Teverson, speaking to the Guardian after a report on the issue that he co-wrote. A committee of the House of Lords criticised the government in a report for failing to put the ban into proper effect.

Amazon’s cloud gaming service could arrive next year and offer Twitch integration
Illustration by Alex Castro / The Verge Google’s Stadia cloud gaming service launched on November 19th (and you probably shouldn’t buy into it just yet), but we’re already hearing more about Amazon’s rumored entry into the space. CNET reports that Amazon is planning to announce its own cloud gaming service next year. CNET’s story corroborates a January report from The Information, which first revealed the existence of the service and said that it likely wouldn’t launch until 2020 at the earliest. Job listings have also given us some evidence that Amazon has a cloud gaming service on the way. The company has been hiring for a “new initiative” in its Amazon Web Services team (AWS underpins many cloud-based services you use every day) that, according to CNET’s sources, is...

A brief history of John Krasinski's transformation into a guy who absolutely loves the CIA
Michael Loccisano/Getty Images John Krasinski was best known for his role as Jim Halpert on "The Office," but now he's all brawn and patriotism as the titular "Jack Ryan." In a 2018 interview that recently went viral on Twitter, Krasinski argued that we should "cherish" and "thank" the CIA, and this isn't the first time he's taken this track. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. For a long time, John Krasinski was America's boyfriend. His most famous role — Jim Halpert on "The Office" — became his de facto identity, and he appeared to share Jim's defining character traits: sensitivity, intelligence, humor, unabashed Snow Patrol fandom.     But as you and I both know — insert a knowing look at the camera here — nothing gold can stay, and now Jim Halpert is waxing poetic about the CIA.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderSee Also:Bill Gates is once again the richest person in the world.

Anyone who buys things online is missing out on travel rewards by ignoring free shopping portals from brands like Chase, Amex, and Southwest Airlines
AP Photo Online shopping portals let you earn airline miles, hotel points, and other rewards when you make a purchase or sign up for a participating service online.
 Not only do most of the major airlines have their own portals, but some hotel programs do as well. Credit card issuers like Chase and Barclays also have their own shopping portals, but you need a credit card to utilize them.  While you don't have to pay with plastic to utilize online shopping portals, you can "double up" on rewards if you do.
 For example, use the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card to make a purchase through the Ultimate Rewards portal and earn extra points. Read more personal finance coverage. It's not hard to see why travel rewards have been growing in popularity over the last decade. You can use airline miles to pay for first-class flights that cost thousands of dollars, and you can use hotel points or credit card rewards to book hotels and even vacation rentals, along with rental cars, daily excursions and activities, and more. The quickest way to earn points and miles is to sign up for a rewards credit card to earn a sign-up bonus and get rewarded for your spending. But credit cards aren't for everyone, and even if you don't want to add any plastic to your wallet, you still have options for earning points and miles to book travel. See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: How to find water when you're stuck in the desertSee Also:5 reasons the decade-old Chase Sapphire Preferred is still a powerhouse within the increasingly competitive credit card space9 things to do once you have the Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant Amex to enjoy benefits like free hotel status and over $400 in statement creditsIntimidated by points and miles?
