The article - rather than the research behind it - is intended to catch the attention of people who do crosswords etc., to keep mentally active.
Have you checked obvious "safe" places around your house? It sounds as though the courier has definitely been there, and if they had left it with a neighbour, I'd have assumed they'd have left a card for you saying which one. (I'd make a difference here between the legal niceties and the m...

I've not been able to trace a source for the data in this article but it seems to be saying that reductions in the level of traffic policing are leading to significant reductions in the numbers of breath tests administered. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/12/11/roadside-breath-tests-record-low...
You are right until its delivered the argument is between the courier and the supplier, However you will need time for them to try and find it. A solution to your requirement for something before your holiday would be to order again. And return which ever turns up second. You don’t say who the comp...

After a decade of bank crisis, austerity, etc., crowned with Universal Credit and a long hot Summer, there's still not been much sign of disorder - even with hi-viz togs to make it easier to spot.
AIUI, the current case is restricted to deciding JV's employment status as the recipient of élite athlete funding. Again AIUI, all governing bodies have assumed that funded athletes are self employed. If that turns out to be wrong, then there will have to be a lot of changes to the way it's all admi...

the criminal case will be heard sometime this week so I hope to hear more.
Unfortunately, nothing about the result of the prosecution of the bus driver.
I've only ever made one personal injury claim and there's an account here: https://forum.cyclinguk.org/viewtopic.php?p=204550#p204550 AFAIK, the principle of having to meet the other side's costs if you lose or get a judgment smaller than the offer is longstanding, although the name may change from ...

As already posted, regular maintenance will prevent a lot of problems. A bit of knowledge is valuable with that so have a look at something like the Park Tool www which has a lot of vids. Then, the stuff to carry depends on what you know how to use so try to learn for that reason as well. I'd sugges...

... Having worked as photographer I know how bl**dy hard it is to get photos good enough AND with the right space for a magazine cover. Plus being dependent on folk who are producing words & pictures for an article (those who could do both well were always the cream of the crop in commercial ma...

Perhaps your main hope is that as devotees of older kit get older, they switch to lower gears: there may be more big r...
It's the same size as TA 5 pin as in Cyclotouriste equipment and also the adaptor (in your lowest pic.) as used with Stronglight 49D. Even standard sizes are now in rocking horse doodah territory. AFAIK, larger sizes like sixty teeth were only ever made to special order.

You asked about other people's experience and the one that springs to mind - involving a car on the wrong side of a dual carriageway whose driver denied being in the wrong - was posted by my hero stoobs. Unfortunately, his crash was some time ago so some things may have changed and it's a while sinc...
