• I have no problem with people with Scottish ancestry connecting with their heritage and getting to know its history and culture. But what bugs me is when ‘Scottish Americans’ or 'Scottish Canadians’ chip in on the independence debate like they are some kind of authority on the matter.If you support independence, great, thanks, I appreciate it. But stop acting like you have a seat in this discussion because you’re great great great granny’s auntie’s nephew was from Scotland.Scottishness goes deeper than blood; it’s the experiences which shape us, not some arbitrary concept of genetics or culture, which make us Scots. Frankly, there are people with no historical or cultural ties to Scotland, children of immigrants and even immigrants themselves, who have more right call themselves Scottish than even a lot of people who were born here or whose parents were.And while Scotland’s history, like the Clearances or the Wars of Independence, often come up in discussion, independence is about what’s happening now. It’s about the now, not the then. It’s about shaping Scotland’s future, not returning to her past.Independence is a huge decision. It is one full of possibilities and risks in equal measure, and if you don’t have a stake in that, then you do not have a place in its discussion. Independence is for the people who live and work here and call it home. Independence is for the people of Scotland.

• What do you do on pay day? Hoard books via Book Depository! x)) Alhamdulillah for the holidays because i managed to actually complete reading two books within, I think, a few weeks? The first book is on the Fiqh of Da’wah while the second one is the The Auto-biography of Malcolm X.  Currently, I am interested to learn about the history of Islam and Christianity hence I am inshaAllah planning to get books on both religions. I was reading on the history of Salahudin - but after a few attempts to read the book and appreciate it, I find that I just cannot agree or accept the way the author writes about him. I find that her (i think it is her, I cannot remember) seem to be very biased or against Salahudin… it perhaps could be just be me. Perhaps I may give that book another try, inshaAllah.
• Former Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond called U.S. Donald Trump a nincompoop for saying that Scottish independence would be terrible, the Scotsman reported Wednesday. Alex Salmond on the campaign trail in Edinburgh, Scotland on May 18, 2017 | Jeff J Mitchell/Getty Images Alex Salmond: Trump is a complete and utter nincompoop The Grand Canyon is a minor crevice compared to the vast chasm of ignorance that is Trump, says ex-SNP leader. One little thing, what would they do with the British Open if they ever got out? Trump asked. They just went through hell.Much of Trumps concerns about Scottish independence seemed to stem from golf.

Impartiality, firmness and independence - Ian Stewart on his new book about the history of The Scotsman

YA
I suggest that you look at the Scotsman website. The Scotsman is Edinburgh's daily newspaper http://thescotsman.scotsman.com/
If you follow the Stewart line from James I up to the present day the heir to the Stewart throne is, incredible as it sounds, the man who would also be King of Bavaria if they still had a monarchy, Prince Franz, born in 1933. He is the Stewart claimant to the British throne as the Stewart line was barred in favour of the Hanoverians in 1701.
I hope so.Its not independence.They already have that.Its pulling out of the UK that no Scotsman wants. What money will they have ? That awful little woman. https://uk.yahoo.com/news/eu-says-indepe...
The Queen has numerous tartans to choose from; however, only members of the Royal Family can wear the Balmoral tartan. The Queen often wears the Stewart Hunting or the Stewart (old) tartan on holiday. The Stewart (old) tartan was a favorite of the Queen Mother. During the 1930s, the Princess Elizabeth tartan, a version of the Inverness tartan, was created for her. The Stewart Victorian tartan is reserved for furnishings at Balmoral.
If by some unforeseen miracle that the Scottish actually got independence then all the the rest of the UK would benefit quite a lot. Mainly because taxes would be a lot lower. But none of this will happen, a Scotsman will always fall to an Englishman's gold.
A true story:- I was in a shop in Moffat some years ago and an elderly Scotsman asked the assistant how much the large brown envelopes were. She replied "two pence each" (I told you it was some years ago!). The man then said "How much fer two?" The young girl said "Four pence". The Scotsman's response was "Dae ye no get them eny cheaper if ye buy mair than one?" Having said that I worked in Glasgow for two years and found everyone very helpful and generous so I think the "mean Scotsman" tag is really undeserved.

Catalonia’s media drop impartiality for independence The starkly divergent news agendas promoted in Madrid and Barcelona expose the crisis that state-funded journalism can face when the political stakes rise Some fundamental media questions can never be definitively answered. One is: who should be allowed to own a newspaper or news organisation? Another – a core problem as those crucial Catalonian regional elections near – is who controls the public service apparatus that supposedly delivers independent but state-sanctified journalism? Hollow laugh. You might have hoped that the high-profile

Does independence on semi rings imply independence on the generated sigma algebras? Let $\Omega$ be a set and let $M$ be a sigma algebra on it. That is, $M$ contains $\emptyset$, $M$ is closed under complements and $M$ is closed under countable unions. Furthermore assume that $P$ is a probability measure on $M$. Now we define a semi ring $A$ as a collection of subsets of $\Omega$ such that $A$ contains $\emptyset$, $A$ is closed under finite intersections and such that for all $S, T \in A$ we have that $S \setminus T$ can be written as a finite disjoint union of elements of $A$. Let $A_1$ and $A_2$ be two semi rings contained in $M$ and assume that for all $S_1 \in A_1$ and all $S_2 \in A_2$ we have that $S_1$ and $S_2$ are independent; $P(S_1 \cap S_2) = P(S_1)P(S_2)$. Let $M_1$ and $M_2$ be the sigma algebras generated by $A_1$ and $A_2$ respectively. Does independence of the semi rings carry over to the sigma algebras generated by them? That is, does it hold that for all $S_1 \in M_1$ and all $S_2 \in M_2$ we have $P(S_1 \cap S_2) = P(S_1)P(S_2)$?
Mean independence and normality imply independence? [on hold] Let $\varepsilon, X$ be real-valued random variables. Could you help me to show (if correct) that (1) $E(\varepsilon)=E(\varepsilon\mid X)$ and (2) $\varepsilon \sim N(0,1)$ imply that $\varepsilon\perp X$? If the statement is wrong what would be the "corrected" version?

How can be achieved impartiality in report writing? It is very difficult to be totally impartial, but it absolutely can be done. Many professional writers first gather facts about both sides of the issue, making sure to seek out information from authors who strive to be accurate, and avoiding authors who just want to insult those who disagree with them. For example, if you are researching a political issue, avoid resources (on the web or in books/magazines) where partisans have bad things to say about their political opponents. Look for intelligent explanations rather than angry rhetoric. Let's say you are writing a paper about immigration law
