Pilot test: EU citizen can now submit applications to remain in UK after Brexit

Impact of Brexit on Migrants , thats how they are reaching to UK from France

EU nationals wanting to stay in Britain after Brexit can start applying from today.

Home office started taking EU citizen applications today

So the first way of Brexit execution is visible as Home office trials begins and approached some citizen from liverpool and some from north west of England to submit their applications as they are living for more than 5 years in UK, after submission of forms they will undergo scrutiny and prudently allotted status of “Settled Status” to stay in UK. Every EU citizen living in UK for 5 or more years and has home would be asked to apply and avail this status and shun any thing odd.

However all those EU citizens living in UK for less than 5 years will have to wait for the remaining time and once they complete they could also submit their application in order to avail the “Settled Status”, its not yet decided the how the time difference would be catered.

Applications will cost £65 for adults and £32.50 for children under the age of 16.

Applicants will be asked to prove their identity, declare any criminal convictions and upload a facial photograph

The first EU nationals wishing to apply to stay in the UK after Brexit are submitting their paperwork as part of a Home Office trial.

“Settled status” will allow non-British Europeans who have been living in the UK for at least five years to secure their right to stay in the country.

NHS workers in the north-west of England and students and staff from three Liverpool universities are among those invited to apply early for a “managed live trial” of the process, which the Home Office says should involve up to 4,000 people to iron out any kinks before a phased roll-out by the end of the year.

Since the UK voted to leave the EU on 23 June 2016, EU citizens who have made their homes in Britain have been securing their status by applying for “permanent residency” cards – an expensive and arduous bureaucratic process that was never designed to cater for them.

The inundation of applications led to a backlog at the Home Office and prompted Theresa May to unveil plans for the new “settled status” system.

Under the EU Settlement Scheme, EU citizens and family members who have been in the UK for five years by the end of 2020 will be able to apply for settled status, meaning they are free to go on living and working in the UK indefinitely.

The Home Office will check employment and benefits data to confirm proof of residence, while all applications will be run through UK criminality and security databases. Previously, EU applicants for permanent residency had to provide dossiers of documents proving where they were, and what they were doing, for the whole of their five years in the UK.

Those who have arrived by December 31 2020, but do not have five years’ residence, can apply for “pre-settled status” in a similar process, and then have their status upgraded free of charge to “settled” once they reach the five-year threshold.

The Home Office says it wants to make the process “as quick and user-friendly as possible”, and that the full scheme will be in place by 30 March 2019. It also reminds EU citizens that their rights will not change until the end of the Brexit transition period in 2021 and so they don’t need to apply straight away – presumably to avoid another inundation of paperwork.

The display can still be removed from the keyboard and touchpad, and can still be replaced backward to sit flat as a complete package. The 13.5-inch display has a 3,000 x 2,000 resolution and a 3:2 aspect ratio, whereas the 15-inch model comes in with a 3,240 x 2,160 resolution.

If you need top performance, the 15-inch model is where you want to look, offering up inside an eighth-generation, quad-core Intel Core i7 CPU, 16GB of DDR3-1866MHz RAM, and a 1TB PCIe solid-state drive (SSD). For gaming or multimedia editing, you can also take advantage of the NVIDIA GTX 1060 GPU with 6GB of GDDR5 VRAM.

Battery life here is impressive; get about 10 hours from the 15-inch model and about 11 hours from the 13-inch model. An IR camera for Windows Hello logins is seated above the display, and the keyboard and touchpad are some of the best around. If you need a true desktop replacement for your Windows laptop, this is it.

The Nations League draw is complete

England will face Spain and Croatia in the UEFA Nations League following Wednesday’s draw. The Three Lions are bidding to win the group and progress to the Final Four showpiece in the summer of 2019. Wales will play Denmark and the Republic of Ireland in League B while Northern Ireland takes on Bosnia and Herzegovina and Austria.

In League C, Scotland takes on Israel and Albania.

The tournament provides teams another route into Euro 2020 running alongside qualifying.

What’s the format and how will it work?

A total of 55 nations will be divided up into four mini-leagues (A, B, C, D). League allocation will be determined by each country’s UEFA ranking in November 2017. The leagues will be tiered with the highest ranking nations in League A, the next highest in League B and so on.

Each league will then be split into groups, made up of three or four teams. At the end of each round of fixtures, four teams will be relegated to the league below and four teams will be promoted to the league above. They will play at their new league level in the next version of the competition, which will start in 2020.

The winners from each of the four groups in League A will compete in the Final Four in the summer of 2019.

Smart Phones, you should consider in 2018

With the onset of another year, the market is bound to be filled by a range of new Android phones. Being a lover of the OS gives you a great advantage as you can easily buy a new phone without breaking the bank. Here is a great list of the 5 best Android phones that you could buy for cheap in 2018.

ZTE Axon 7

The company ZTE has come a long way since their phones that used to be not so reliable in the past. The new ZTE Axon 7 is possibly one of the cheapest and not so popular brand to support Daydream VR technology. Under the hood, it is powered by a cool Snapdragon 820 processor with 4GB of RAM and the large 5.5-inch display with 2560×1440 display should appease most buyers. The phone costs $399 and offers a lot for the asking price.

Nokia 6

The 2018 edition of the Nokia 6 with a 600 series Snapdragon processor is a better pick. However, the older Nokia 6 with a big camera, stock Android experience and a pricing of just $199 is the cheapest Android you could get. The display, build quality and everything else speaks of Nokia’s brand value from the past.

Moto G5

Moto G5 is the continuation of the successful G series Motorola built way back in the 2013 and it still matters in the highly competitive market. The phone has Snapdragon 430, not the best yet good enough, has a 13-megapixel camera and can be purchased for as low as $149. It also runs stock Android Nougat out of the box.

Nexus 5X

Ah! The good old days of Google and their Nexus devices that didn’t cost an arm and leg like the Apple iPhones. However, times have changed and Pixel phones have replaced them. Yet, if you could find a Nexus 5X priced between $240 and $299, you get great display, powerful hardware specifications and Vanilla Android experience. Besides, it still is one of Google’s best product and is extremely cheap as sellers are trying to get rid of the stocks.

Coming up next in 2018. Samsung heads off

According to industry sources acknowledging Korean publication, ET News, Samsung is planning to start manufacturing its first foldable phone in somewhere near November 2018. However, the report also affirms the phone will be launched somewhere near December and will go on sale in particular regions in later months.

According to an industry expert in Korea,

“The foldable phone is targeting ‘super premium’, both in terms of performance and price, which goes beyond the existing premium smartphone, and aims to provide the performance, design, and usability that is right for the product,”

Another interesting point in this report has uncovered plans of Samsung which might show this new technology to some close people in the industry in September.

Interestingly, the report also indicates that the phone is launching with 7-inch OLED screen. The phone will fold inwards and you will be able to open it in a similar way you open a book. It will appear like a phone and when you will unfold it, will appear like a tablet. Samsung Display will be working on making these complex screens. The production of the foldable OLED displays will start in March this year.
