    I hate the new online Media!

    It wasn't the most interesting article I've ever read, but it didn't anger me either. I think I'm missing something.

    Environmental concerns

    To be honest, I'm often puzzled by perceptions that scientists are quite so divided on the subject. The following is not an attack on anyone here, I assure you, it's only that this subject sometimes surprises me and I wonder about the origins. True, there are and always will be disagreements...

    Olympics - London 2012

    What have people here made of the Olympics? Have you been following it on the TV or even managed to be there in person? I was fortunate enough to be able to attend in person on a couple of days and have to say I was pleasantly surprised by it all, especially as I had been fairly pessimistic...

    The Shard

    Yuck. It really doesn't seem to fit in very well at all, although that can be said for other, recent constructions too. Then again, this article suggests the Shard might fit quite well... ;)

    Steve Jobs has passed away

    I just saw the reports elsewhere and then saw the front page on the Apple site. I was shocked and I don't know what to say. It is indeed a very sad day. :( He was one of the greats of the industry, someone who, from what I've heard, had a considerable talent for discerning the good ideas...

    What caused the U.K. riots?

    My first reaction was that it is best to look at those who acted differently to the majority and determine why that was. Then again, you make a good point: if there people in similar areas and potentially similar situations, what makes some people act one way and others act another way? Of...

    Jobs Resigns!

    I can only hope the photo is not genuine. I'm not wanting to contribute to sensationalism about Steve Jobs' health and, in fact, I've not liked it when the media have talked about this a lot, but I'm feeling quite concerned for him recently. There is also news that his biography is being...
