"Pay restoration is the right, just and moral thing to do, but it is a significant demand and it won't be easy to win," said Dr Emma Runswick, who presented the motion to the conference.Aiming to ensure it's a day to remember, there'll be entertainment by Jonny Crane on the sax and Beats By Tom playing the bongos, as well as a DJ, and a solo performance by Jennifer Christine.As a helpful reader flagged up to us, this could potentially land Intel in hot water over marketing the new GPUs using the A380 name."Every part of the BMA needs to plan for how to achieve this.Strike action will be another issue for health secretary Sajid Javid.Amy Gwynn, owner of Jaloux and Avenue, said: "Back in April, I hosted a pop up and it was just fantastic to see so many businesses coming together and selling their pieces in person.Picture: Getty "But I'm not foolish, I know that it's likely that industrial action will be required to move the governments on this issue.After a few days of deliberation with its legal team, it concluded that there was no danger of a lawsuit, and as such declined to offer an official statement on the matter." She added: "It is outrageous that our pay has been cut by 30%.Instagram "We had the maximum capacity of pop ups at Jaloux last time and so much interest from other brands that we wanted to expand and make this the ultimate pop up across both Jaloux and Avenue.

"It is outrageous that doctors today are unable to afford mortgages and are delaying starting families due to falling pay."It is outrageous that our pay has been cut and it is sensible that we demand it back.It's a great way to network, meet new people and support Liverpool's local brands.The key thing it boils down to is the ‘likelihood of confusion’ - usually, for a trademark lawsuit to succeed, a judge has to rule that there is a non-zero chance that a consumer could get confused between two non-generic products based on the name."

Doctors could end up joining rail workers on the picket lines.One key element here is that Intel hasn’t attempted to trademark A380 or any other Arc GPU designation, due to an entirely different legal precedent at play here that could work in Intel’s favor - and to delve into that, we have to go all the way back to a hotel in Sunnyvale, California, in the year 1990.Picture: Getty The possibility of frontline doctors striking will add to the Government's woes.It refused to intervene and budge enough to stop rail strikes going ahead and grinding most of Britain's rail network to a halt as it called for reforms on the rail network.

Barristers also took action on Monday in a dispute over legal aid funding.But Intel had decided to end this agreement, becoming the only source of its coveted 80386 chip.Reports have suggested NHS and teaching staff have also grown restless – and combined with striking workers at Heathrow, fears of a summer of discontent are growing.Boris Johnson's government tried to shift the blame for the industrial action during the rail strikes on to Labour, trying to tie the party to the disruption, while Labour blamed the Government for allowing problems to reach the point where workers are walking out..It defended the trademark and the associated technology zealously, engaging in lawsuits with AMD to prevent it from continuing to utilize the microarchitecture that powered the 386.
