With our industries booming and quality of life slowly becoming better and better, we should wholeheartedly accept the spirit of generosity, not limited to the day of Eid. A heartfelt Eid Mubarak to all our readers.

The Labour Party led by Jeremy Corbyn, the main opposition party, contrary to Theresa May’s expectations, ended up with 262 seats, adding 30 more seats through this election. It was a relief to know that all three MPs were re-elected with bigger majorities than their previous electoral performance. However, for the majority of UK voters, Brexit right now does not appear to be at the top of the list of their concerns.

Recently we couldn't help but notice tree troubles, especially in newer housing developments. While the problem can affect other tree types, it's widespread among some maple varieties. But several factors can limit a plant's ability to use the soil's iron, and sometimes manganese, causing them to be deficient. Many tree types such as maples would be happier in slightly acid soil. Dead upper branchesWhy does a significant portion of a 5-year-old or younger tree fail to leaf out in spring, yielding dead upper branches?
