      What earthquake and what tsunami. There was an earthquake today 3.8 miles below the surface of the earth and it was a magnitude 8.0 in the Richter scale. The islands around like Papua New Guinea, New Zealand, American Samoa, SOlomon islands were given tsunami warnings as precaution. Not all earthquakes result in gigantic tsunamis but it was better to make the residents move to higher grounds just in case.

    Why Is The Queen Of Canada So Homophobic? Why is the Queen of, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Jamaica, Antigua and Barbuda, Belize, Papua New Guinea, St Christopher and Nevis, The United Kingdom, St Vincent and the Grenadines, Tuvalu, Barbados, Grenada, Solomon Islands, St Lucia and The Bahamas.

    So homophobic?

    • Curator says:

      Hello,

      I never heard her comment on this issue. Also did she not have Eltin John and other gays partake at various concerts for her not to mention Lady Diana’s funeral? He revised Candle In The Wind for her.

      Cheers,

    Do Uk Residence Visa Holders Need A Visa For Dublin? I am a non eu citizen with a uk permanat residence visa my husband is english. Do I need another visa to visit Dublin? IE a shengen visa?

    • Curator says:

      A Schengen visa cannot be used to visit Dublin since the Republic or Ireland, same as the UK, is not signatory to the Schengen agreement.

      A UK visa does not exempt from the Irish visa requirement which is depending upon your [unknown] nationality. EU treaty rights do not apply since your English husband is living in the UK.

      You need to apply for a visa if you are not a citizen of Andorra, Antigua & Barbuda, Argentina, Australia, Austria, Bahamas, Barbados, Belgium, Belize, Bolivia, Botswana, Brazil, Brunei, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, Costa Rica, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Dominica, El Salvador, Estonia, Fiji, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Grenada, Guatemala, Guyana, Honduras, Hong Kong (SAR), Hungary, Iceland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kiribati, Latvia, Lesotho, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macau (SAR), Malawi, Malaysia, Maldives, Malta, Mexico, Monaco, Nauru, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Norway, Panama, Paraguay, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Saint Kitts & Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent & the Grenadines, Samoa, San Marino, Seychelles, Singapore, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Solomon Islands, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Swaziland, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Tonga, Trinidad & Tobago, Tuvalu, United Kingdom & Colonies, United States of America, Uruguay, Vanuatu, Vatican City, or Venezuela.
