As it turns out, landing the AllianceTexas development has paid dividends to the region far beyond what GM was offering with its Saturn plant.30 years of development 2019 marks 30 years since the Alliance Airport opened for business.When Hillwood president Mike Berry started work on Alliance in 1988, there was nothing there. When the groundbreaking was held for the airport, "it was a vast expanse of farmland, wheat fields and cattle," Berry said. "It's been fun to watch the evolution."It's like having a front-row seat to the last 30 years of the evolution of the industrial economy."More than 45 million square feet of buildings have been completed, and Berry said about 10,000 acres remains to be developed at AllianceTexas."We are about 50 percent built out," he said.

The plant-based drink is both lactose and cholesterol free, which is excellent news for those who avoid consuming dairy products, particularly the lactose-intolerant and vegans. It’s also gluten free, so gluten-intolerant people need not worry when consuming it, either. Most mass-produced commercial brands have been fortified with important vitamins and minerals and come in a variety of flavors, such as sweetened, unsweetened, vanilla, plain, and chocolate. No wonder people find them so yummy!

CLIMBING up curtains, helping themselves to dinner on the side and knocking over ornaments are just some of the ways Britain’s mischievous moggies are running rings round their owners. A poll of 2,000 cat owners found they typically have to stop their pets getting up to no good a whopping 1,350 times a year. Other cheeky acts include jumping on kitchen counters, hiding from their owners, raiding the cat food supplies and sleeping in their owner’s bed, despite it being a ‘feline free zone’. One curious cat even developed a penchant for drinking the water out of grandma's false teeth mug. Commissioned by the UK’s number one pet food brand, Felix, the research found one third have resorted to ‘cat proofing’ their homes by buying furniture covers, putting locks on cupboard doors and more.

JEREMY Corbyn has clearly got a new gag writer because two weeks in a row he has managed to open Prime Minister’s Questions with a decent line. When the Prime Minister said she wanted “as little friction as possible” was she talking about borders or in her cabinet meetings? Boom tish. After his unexpected win on Brexit at last week’s bout, it was play it again Jez. Despite his own Brexit mess, with various different members of his shadow cabinet holding various different public positions at any one point, even the hapless lefty could see the current splits in the Cabinet are still a massive open goal. The “government is so busy negotiating with itself it has not time for Brussels” he wryly observed, totally fairly. And once again Mrs May was on the back foot as the Brexit mess in the heart of a her core team was laid bare. The PM even ended in a total muddle, saying : “we have set three very simple objectives for a future customs union."
