Kef fire risk 16/07/22: High


Today’s bank rates:
1 €UR = £ 0.8710 GBP
1 €UR = $ 1.0305 USD
£1 GBP = 1.1481 €UR
$1 USD = 0.9704 €UR

Based on Alpha Bank exchange rates, these are widely used by exchange agencies in Greece.
Other banks likely to offer a different rate which may be marginally higher or lower.
Banks and foreign exchange offices normally charge standard 2% commission.
You may get a better rate changing your holiday money in advance at e.g the
Post Office.
NB: some f-ex agencies advertise "No Commission".
Invariably, they deduct commission before they (don't) advertise the rate.
Foreign exchange offices are businesses, not charities.

Why flying cars are a lot closer than you think
Be they drones or winged automobiles, the real-life Chitty Chitty Bang Bangs are in production and ready to transform transport forever

Immense delays, random cancellations, routinely lost luggage: you would be forgiven for walloping anyone with the temerity to tell you that we are living through a golden age of aviation. But have a look at the Jetson One and you might hold your fire. It’s a nippy little number, no bigger than a car, but weighing about a tenth as much. Where wheels would be, there are four rotor blades, like those found on a quadcopter drone. In fact, the £77,000 machine looks rather like a drone, except you can hop in and zoom around at up to 60mph and 1,500ft.

Londoners urged not to travel on Monday and Tuesday because of high temperatures
Transport for London advises passengers to travel only for essential journeys, with strong chance of record high temperatures

Transport for London (TfL) is advising passengers to only travel for “essential journeys”.

The firm’s chief operating officer, Andy Lord, said: “Due to the exceptionally hot weather that is expected next week, customers should only use London’s transport network for essential journeys.

“If customers do need to travel, they should check before they travel as we are expecting there to be some impact to tube and rail services as a result of temporary speed restrictions we will need to introduce to keep everyone safe,” he added.

“It is also vital that customers always carry water at all times with them when travelling.”

Tory leadership candidate Penny Mordaunt reveals she's cat lover

Mordaunt... was asked her greatest weakness.

"I was tempted to say Burmese cats - as I have four - and introducing them into Number 10 might present some challenges with Larry," she said.
https://www.aol.co.uk/news/tory-leadership-candidate-penny-mordaunt-165116738.html

Er, maybe her greatest weakness is not being able to say if BoJo lied. Even Larry could answer that one.
