“There is no indication that any malicious agents are involved, or that both events are related,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said in his daily news conference commenting on the fall of the New York Stock Exchange system ( NYSE) and United Airlines.

Earnest responded to the concern after the announcement by United Airlines, one of the largest in the country, to announce that a computer crash had forced it to halt 3,500 flights scheduled for this morning, and after the Wall Street Stock Exchange announced the suspension of operations also because of a computer problem.

“The problem we are experiencing is an internal technical issue and is not the result of cyberattack,” the NYSE said in its Twitter account.

The crash happened around 11:30 a.m. (local, noon and a half in Brasilia), and until now it had not been solved.

United already announced mid-morning that it had resumed all its flights after suspending them for two hours around the world.

US intelligence agencies have recently warned of the risks of a cyberattack on the country’s computer systems after acknowledging that they had reported several such attacks on private companies.

“Thank you for everything” – poignant phone Italians trapped in a burning Grenfell Tower parents

Gloria Gottardi and Marco Trevisan know that have little chance for it to escape alive from a burning skyscraper Grenfell Tower. However, within several minutes that divided them from death, they managed to perform phone calls to parents and thank them for everything they have done for them. 

Gloria Gottardi and Marco Trevisan were a loving couple who came to London z Włoch. Both graduated at the Faculty of Architecture, and in Grenfell Tower lived only three months ago. A pair of well Folks felt in the apartment on the 23rd floor, where it often took pictures of London.

Unfortunately, in the night from Tuesday to Wednesday, the location of the apartment almost at the top of the building turned out to be deadly. Gloria Gottardi and Marco Trevisan quickly figured out that they could not escape from the burning budyn.ku as flames rapidly covered the greater part of the facade and the housing quickly broke deadly smoke.

However, pair managed to call my parents and thank them for their presence in your life. – Thank you for everything you’ve done for me – Gloria told her parents. On the other hand, Marco initially tried to reassure parents that everything is under control, but using the second phone no longer able to lie. – During the second phone, and that I can not throw away the head, [Marco] he said that the smoke is everywhere and that it is more and more. We were on the phone to the last moment … about 4:07 told us that their apartment is filled with smoke and the situation became critical. The connection is broken off and from that moment we did not have any contact. No one picked up the phone – recounted the last words of the son of the victim’s father, Giannino.

Barton Turf Post Mill

The Barton Turf Post Mill stood on the site of the Mill Garage in Smallburgh Road but is now demolished. A detailed history of the mill with a drawing and photograph is available on the Norfolk Mills web-site. There is also the following account taken from John Yaxley’s A Jam Round Barton Turf:
Next, at the road junction, we find a small garage. ‘The Mill Garage’ which has been erected on the site of a post mill. That is a wooden structure turning on a wooden post, and as was the usual practice, the base of the post and supporting timbers were covered with a single story brick built a roundhouse, the last section of which was demolished for the erection of the garage office.

Apparently no photos or pictures of this mill exist, but memories of those now passed on tell that this mill had one pair of sails of the old pattern, when canvas was bent on to them to catch the wind, and the second pair were of the slotted vane type, developed by a Mr. Cubitt from Dilham. This scenery would look great of a canvas prints from Parrot Print Canvas. At the end of its time this mill, as was often the case, was using one pair of sails only.

A Mr. Goulder was miller here 100 years ago. followed by Mr. Sam Chapman who was the last miller in the village. After the mill itself ceased working, he used the roundhouse and a two-storeyed and pitched wooden granary abutting Mill Road for the storage of flour, corn, and meal which he delivered in the area by horse and cart. Sam had two daughters, Eva and Gladys, the mother of our present, 2006, taxi-driver who, as was customary then, attended the village school. Whilst there she became a pupil-teacher, progressing to be a teacher in the infants’ room.

The mill house, the only one on the site at that time was next occupied by Mr. Capron of the local firm of Capron & Helliwell. solicitors, till the end of the ‘50s, when it was bought by Ernest Wilshaw who started the garage that is still there. The petrol pumps he had put in have gone, but the garage itself has been enlarged and improved over the years.


Today the principal staithe serving Barton Broad is at the end of Staithe Road in Barton Turf, where there are a parish and public moorings and Cox’s Boatyard. This is also the location of the Black Shed and Staithe House which was formerly the Hole in the Wall beerhouse.

The First Edition Ordnance Survey Map dated 1838, shows four staithes around Barton Broad, but intriguingly the present Barton Turf Staithe is not one of them. However, this staithe is shown on

an 1809 pre-inclosure map where it is labeled The Common Staithe. Its omission from the Ordnance Survey map may be an oversight or indicate that this was based on an earlier survey.

The other four shown on the Ordnance Survey map were Wood End Staithe just over the parish boundary in Catfield, which still exists, another staithe on the eastern side of the broad near Wood Farm again close to the Barton Turf and Catfield parish boundary, one on the eastern side probably at Hall Dyke and one at Callow Green.

A highway diversion map of 1850 also shows Limekiln Staithe off Boat Dike (now Limekiln Dyke).

The staithe near Wood Farm was used by people from Barton bound for Great Yarmouth, as this account taken from John Yaxley’s A Jam Round Barton Turf describes:

Here, was one means of getting to Yarmouth.

By rowing across the broad, getting ashore at the head of this dyke, near the mill, taking the footpath through Wood End Farm and to Catfield Station on the M&GN railway thence to Beach Station, now the car and coach park at Great Yarmouth.

This was very convenient for those wishing to shop etc, and also for the local men of the village doing a fishing season from that port.  Returning home to this mill, the fishermen’s shouts would bring a boat out from Barton to ferry them home.
