I'll explain in the video. Join me at www.50mistakes.com. I'm a restaurant owner and I have made a few mistakes in the last 10 years. I wish someone told me what I am about to share on my 50 Mistakes video series. These videos are short and top the point. I still run my restaurant, but I teach other restaurant owners: restaurant marketing, restaurant operations, more restaurant business tips & restaurant staff training.
I came here as a Masters student about five years ago. I think I chose the university rather than London the London School of Economics had the best programme in my field. But I settled in right away. I met my friends, my boyfriend, and I work in public health policy. Now, I don't have the same sense of loyalty to this country that I used to have. If I hadn't met my boyfriend I might have already moved somewhere else. London feels very sympathetic, but smaller, monocultural towns are not safe places to be immigrants. EU migrants didn't vote in the referendum either. I feel like this whole situation has happened because of how disenfranchised immigrants are. The person who has been given the biggest voice and listened to the most is the small-town working-class person who doesn't like immigration. I remember feeling angry when Russell Brand was saying: I can't be bothered voting. As someone who couldn't vote, I desperately wished I could.

In some ways I can understand why British people want to leave. The EU used to be all about free movement of goods, services and people these are positive things. But the EU has become more and more controlling. You can't elect commissioners so they are untouchable. If I look at it from my own country's perspective, I see how laws are forced on Estonia. So I think the UK should try to negotiate a better deal for example, follow a similar path to Norway, staying a member of the single market. I think most British people are tolerant and are OK with immigrants who offer some sort of value to the system. Talent is always valued and with British people it's always easy to make friends. What annoys people is immigrants who are disrespectful towards their country's culture, laws and customs. I think if you don't like these then you should go back to your home country or move on to somewhere else. I moved here in 2014 to study and experience the UK's culture. As an international EU student I am not eligible for a student loan for living costs. Nevertheless, I am able to support myself by working in a hotel as a waitress and giving piano lessons because free movement includes the right to work. Also, last summer I set up a business with my two sisters and my brother, making healthy refreshment drinks based on birch sap. At the moment, the business is based in Estonia and our idea is to bring it to the UK. However, Brexit really makes us think twice. How would we be able to sustain the business if Brexit happens without a deal? It might be hard for us. It's quite frustrating not being able to vote, especially if you like being here and you are helping the economy to grow. Of course, British people's opinions should be prioritised as this is their home, after all. Maybe there should be a separate vote for British people at the general election and another for the EU citizens who live here. I think it's very important their opinions are heard as well as those of British people who live in EU countries, what about their opinions?

I have been with my British boyfriend for 12 years. He suffers from a terminal illness called COPD and I am his carer. I'm doing the job of three nurses who would have to look after my partner 24 hours a day if I left. I'm doing that job for 62 a week. Before I became a carer I worked hard in this country and paid my taxes. I've been living here for 16 years. I'm quite an outgoing person, but recently I have stopped talking to strangers in the pub because my accent always gives me away and people ask where I'm from. I get weird looks and occasionally a comment like: Why don't you just go back to your own country? At the moment I live in fear of what's in store for me in the future deportation perhaps, because the government isn't telling us what their plans are concerning EU immigrants. Furthermore, I feel more vulnerable because of the fact that I am only a carer. I, like the other three million EU immigrants, didn't have a vote in the referendum. I can vote in local elections but not in national elections. It's frustrating because I can't get my voice heard. I've been living here for 16 years and I still can't do anything. The only thing I can do is be more vocal on social media. I can get other friends to see my point of view. I'm applying for permanent residency. It's really, really difficult because I don't know what's going to happen to me. And I still need to look after my partner. What's going to happen to him?

Authorities offer competing theories on motivation after attack kills at least 36, mostly from suffocation, in Philippines capital
As the room in the Manila casino filled with dense, black smoke, employees and guests frantically smashed at thick windows that would not open. Some managed to scramble out, finding themselves on a ledge several metres above the road. Those who jumped some of whom broke their legs were the lucky ones. The Philippines government said at least 36 people had died, mostly due to suffocation. We took out a ladder to save them. We were able to save many of them, Ronald Romualdo, a maintenance worker who rushed over with a ladder said. One woman I was trying to save fell from the second floor. The smoke came from a fire started when a gunman set light to gasoline that he had poured on poker tables in the casino in Resorts World a sprawling mall complex that also encompasses a Marriott hotel and luxury shops, five minutes walk from the capitals international airport. Initial fears were of a terrorist attack, in possible revenge for a military campaign against Islamic State sympathisers in the south. Videos published online showed people fleeing as several loud bangs and the crack of gunfire is heard. In the chaos and panic, people ran into the streets screaming Isis, Isis. As the fires were still raging, Donald Trump characterised the incident as a terrorist attack. Later on Friday Isis claimed responsibility via its Amaq news agency. Offering an alternative theory, the fire department told local media that the suspect had been a longtime guest at the casino hotel and suggested the motive may have been retaliation for losing significant gambling money. Philippine police, however, said it was a botched robbery. All indications point to a criminal act by an apparently emotionally disturbed individual, Ernesto Abella, a spokesman for President Rodrigo Duterte, told reporters. Manila map On Friday evening in Manila, key questions remained unanswered. It had not even been confirmed if the assailant had meant to kill. Although the perpetrator gave warning shots, there apparently was no indication that he wanted to do harm or shoot anyone, Abella said. A guard accidentally shot himself during the raid, according to authorities, but there were no other firearm attacks. An employee at a nearby hospital said no patients had bullet wounds. Local police said most victims were found dead inside the bathroom, suggesting many had tried to hide from the gunfire rather than flee. Ian Manalo, a Bureau of Fire Protection spokesman, told Reuters the gunman placed 9mm ammunition on a gaming table which he then set on fire, causing bullets to shoot off randomly and sending those inside ducking for cover. Thats why they died of suffocation because they hid instead of exiting. Instead of rushing to the fire exit, they hid from the exploding bullets, he said. The sprinkler system functioned so the fire did not spread. The problem was the smoke. Armed with an assault rifle, the man was captured on CCTV in jeans, a black hat and jacket. At one point, he was filmed sitting down on the stairs. Police director general Ronald dela Rosa said he walked right past a guard and fired bullets at televisions, before shooting a door to the storage room where gambling chips were kept. The suspect, described as 6ft and foreign-looking by Dela Rosa, took the chips [and] put them inside his backpack, but eventually left it. He said at least 113m Philippine pesos (1.7m) in chips were taken but police did not comment on why the gunmen might steal them. Casino tokens are often specific to the business where they are used and have no outside value.
Police said the driver then pulled the car over and fled into a nearby building, where he started pushing buzzers and yelling that he was going to die. He died of his injuries at a hospital hours later, according to The Associated Press.
