Efforts to map the genome of giraffes has confirmed that there are four distinct species, and they are as different to one another as brown bears and polar bears. Visually, they are hardly distinguishable, according to LOEWE Centre for Translational Biodiversity Genomics scientists, who carried out the genetic analyses. Despite looking the same, genetically there are four distinct species of giraffe and seven subspecies, explained lead author Dr Axel Janke. Spread from north to south Africa, the four distinct species of giraffe are: Northern giraffe, Reticulated giraffe, Masai giraffe and Southern giraffe.

Her two-bed first floor flat in Headingley, West Yorkshire, is jam-packed with disordered mess, unsanitary surfaces and worryingly out of date food. The widow and divorcee is desperately clinging onto the past by surrounding herself with remnants and reminders of former relationships.

Microsoft will allow commercial and public sector customers in the European Union to process and store all of their data in the region, a growing demand from some clients. Microsoft will consult with customers and regulators about this plan in the coming months, including adjustments that are needed in unique circumstances such as cybersecurity, its president Brad Smith said in a statement. Microsoft currently operates datacentres in 13 European countries, including the Republic, France, Germany and Sweden. For big companies, data storage has become so large, and distributed across so many countries, that it becomes difficult for them to understand where their data resides and if it complies with rules such as GDPR. Microsoft has said previously it will challenge every government request for an EU public sector or commercial customer’s personal data and would provide compensation if it disclosed data in violation of the GDPR that causes harm.
