We really need to approach food safety with an understanding of both biology and the traditions of food preparation and storage... Absolutely. Speaking of food safety, we recently acquired a new housemate who we found randomly on the Internet - she's absolutely horrified that I don't bleach my chop...

I didn't hear Today, but I would have thought the 'is he mad' question is more about the nature of his crimes rather than his politics. We never asked if Bin Laden or the 9/11 hijackers were mad as they appear more reasoned... with our notion of Al-Qaeda being one side in a global war, their crimes ...

This is very much Islamist style attack. Not that I'm an expert, but to me this doesn't necessarily seem like an Islamist attack - maximum carnage against softest targets would be walking in to a full cinema and blowing yourself up, or similar. This seems more like a failed asssination attempt, hom...

2011 brings some huge changes for me. Having been a software developer for the past 6 years - first in the civil service, now in academia - I've decided to change careers completely. This September, I'm going back to university to study medicine. Fortunately I got a place before the tuition fee hike...

I have just ordered a hybrid commuting bicycle. Since reliability is my key concern with commuting b...
