The saddest day: The world farewells Queen Elizabeth II

Published

on

The Royal family, joined by thousands of dignitaries, have paid tribute to the Queen’s long life of reign, diligence and service.

The funeral service to remember Britain’s longest-reigning monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, has been held at Westminster Abbey.

Among the guests are world leaders including US President Joe Biden and leaders from across the Commonwealth.

The Dean of Westminster expressed gratitude for the Queen’s “life-long sense of duty”.

King Charles III followed his mother’s coffin from Westminster Hall behind the State Gun Carriage.

The Queen’s coffin was conveyed through Parliament Square, a short distance to Westminster Abbey.

The procession from the abbey saw the State Gun Carriage carry the coffin, drawn by 142 sailors.

The Prince of Wales and the Duke of Sussex walked side-by-side behind their father, the King.

As the service began, The Dean, the Very Rev David Hoyle, spoke of the Queen’s “life-long selfless service”.

“With gratitude we remember her unswerving commitment to a high calling over so many years as Queen and Head of the Commonwealth. With admiration we recall her life-long sense of duty and dedication to her people,” he said.

Solemn service

The service was filled with traditional church music and readings from the Bible. It was 70 years ago that the new Queen stood in the same Abbey for her coronation.

Towards the end, the Last Post was played before a two-minute national silence

As they walked to the abbey the royals were accompanied by the Massed Pipes and Drums of Scottish and Irish Regiments, the Brigade of Gurkhas, and the Royal Air Force.

Thousands poured into London’s Westminster Abbey to farewell Queen Elizabeth the Second. Numerous dignitaries, including former Prime Ministers, Emperors and Presidents were at the ceremony, watched by millions right around the world.

It was a sombre farewell for Britain’s longest-reigning monarch, who passed away at her Balmoral Estate on the 8th of September.

The Royal Family led a procession into the historical church, where Reverend David Hoyle began the service.

Each of the Queen’s living Former UK Prime Ministers were at the service, alongside U.S. President Joe Biden, French leader Emmanuel Macron and delegations from right across the Commonwealth.

There were 15 British Prime Ministers across the Queen’s reign, with Liz Truss being sworn in just days before her death.

Truss read ‘The Second Lesson’ from John 14 at the service. The airspace around London was closed as a tight security operation got underway. Inside Westminster Abbey, you could hear a pin drop as mourners gathered to pay their respects.

It was the same building that Queen Elizabeth was married and crowned over 70 years ago.

The Queen’s Piper, Warrant Officer Paul Burns, played ‘Sleep, dearie, sleep’ as the service continued. And inside Westminster Abbey, the 2-thousand strong mourners sung ‘God Save The King’.

World leaders

It was a who’s who of world leaders who came to say farewell on behalf of their countries.

Some 2,000 mourners bid farewell to the Queen at the state funeral, including 500 dignitaries.

Former prime ministers Theresa May, Tony Blair, David Cameron, Gordon Brown, John Major and Boris Johnson are at the historic abbey.

There are also members of many European royal families, including Belgium, the Netherlands, Spain and Denmark, as well as the Emperor and Empress of Japan.

US President Joe Biden, French President Emmanuel Macron and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau are among the world leaders who came to pay their respects.

A fitting end to the Elizabethan era.

‘INVINCIBLE’

Elizabeth died on Sept. 8 at her Scottish summer home, Balmoral Castle.

Her health had been in decline, and for months the monarch who had carried out hundreds of official engagements well into her 90s had withdrawn from public life.

Such was her longevity and her inextricable link with Britain that even her own family found her passing a shock.

“We all thought she was invincible,” Prince William told well-wishers.

The 40th sovereign in a line that traces its lineage back to 1066, Elizabeth came to the throne in 1952, Britain’s first post-imperial monarch.

Boston Dynamics’ electric marvel or robot contortionist?

Published

on

Boston Dynamics has recently unveiled its latest creation, the electric Atlas robot, boasting enhanced agility and strength.

However, with its uncanny ability to contort and rise from the ground with an almost eerie grace, one might wonder if we’re witnessing the birth of the world’s first robot contortionist.

As this technological marvel flaunts its capabilities, one can’t help but ponder if we’re on the brink of a future where household chores will be effortlessly handled by robots moving like a fusion of ballet dancers and horror movie monsters.

With its cadaver-like movements and illuminated head, it’s hard not to speculate whether Atlas is destined to revolutionise robotics or simply rehearsing for a techno-horror rendition of The Nutcracker. As Boston Dynamics continues to push the boundaries of robotics, the line between science fiction and reality becomes increasingly blurred.

The Coffee confusion causing health concerns

Published

As the morning sun peeks through the curtains, many reach for that familiar brew, kickstarting their day with a comforting cup of coffee.

It’s a ritual ingrained in cultures worldwide, offering a jolt of energy to combat the grogginess of dawn.

But when is the optimal time for that caffeine fix? According to registered dietitian Anthony DiMarino, RD, LD, the answer isn’t crystal clear.

Some experts suggest delaying that first sip until mid-morning or later. However, DiMarino reassures coffee lovers that there’s no one-size-fits-all answer to this dilemma.

Meanwhile, the science behind coffee production unveils fascinating insights into its instant variant. Whether produced through freeze-drying or spray-drying methods, instant coffee offers convenience without sacrificing flavor.

Yet, beyond convenience, recent studies delve deeper into coffee’s impact on our bodies. Research exploring the acute effects of decaffeinated versus caffeinated coffee reveals intriguing findings on reaction time, mood, and skeletal muscle strength.

Moreover, investigations into the gut microbiome shed light on coffee’s influence on liver cirrhosis patients. A study analyzing the duodenal microbiome in this population found correlations between coffee consumption and microbial richness and evenness.

So, as you sip your coffee and ponder the day ahead, consider not just the flavour in your cup but also the subtle impacts it may have on your body and mind.
