A  single man has taken a novel route to finding a date after deciding that dating apps weren’t working for him.

30-year-old Alan Clayton from Kettering listed himself in the Items for Sale section on Facebook, with the description “free” and in a “good/used condition”.

Clayton told SWNS: “I’ve tried conventional apps like Tinder and Plenty of Fish but nothing has really happened so I went to sign up to e-Harmony.

“They asked me lots of questions and I suddenly thought why don’t I just advertise myself online on a bargain adverts page.”

Since Clayton shared the ad on 10 September it has been shared thousands of times and his inbox has been flooded with messages. 

“I was up past midnight reading all of the messages of support from people. I’ve had women show some interest but it has not really led to anything,”

Florida’s Venezuelan Diaspora Sees Trump as Best, Flawed Hope

(Bloomberg) — They left a divided and broken nation for one that’s divided and breaking.

Venezuelans came to South Florida to put the troubled nation behind them. Preparing to cast the first votes of their new lives as American citizens, they’re faced with a wrenching decision: whether to support Donald Trump, the U.S. president who has been the most vocal against their former tormentors, despite having strongman qualities of his own.

She plans to vote for Trump because of his pro-business policies and attention to Venezuela’s crisis. She also worries about his behavior, which in recent days has included repeated refusals to commit to a peaceful transition of power.

Working towards independent energy supply, New homes in American Fork, Bringing Hope to the Table

Daimler partners, working towards independent power

Daimler AG announced it is utilizing its automotive fuel cell systems in stationary power systems to demonstrate a sustainable and independent energy supply for data centers, and to accelerate the transition to renewable energy generation and supply.

The company has experience with hydrogen-powered electric vehicles over several vehicle generations and millions of tests around the world, and recently presented the next step with pre-production models of the Mercedes-Benz GLC F Cell. Convinced of the potential of fuel cell technology and hydrogen as an energy storage medium in the context of the overall energy system, the company is extending its development activities into non-transportation industries. Joining forces with industry leaders Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Power Innovations, Daimler will develop prototype systems starting this year for back-up and continuous power solutions for data centers and other stationary applications using automotive hydrogen fuel cell systems.

AsLouisiana nursing homes reopen to visitors: ‘We very much hope this is the first of many visits’ | Coronavirus

Leslie Alley lives about 20 minutes from her mother, Glenda Thorne, an 84-year-old resident of Poydras Home. But in six months, the closest contact she was able to make was waving through a fence when her mom went on daily walks around the grounds of the Uptown New Orleans retirement home.

On Thursday, however, under the shade of a gazebo on the grounds, mother and daughter sat within a few arms’ lengths for the first time since March. Poydras Home reopened its doors to visitors this week for the first time since a statewide lockdown closed Louisiana nursing homes at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic.
