  2. Power/Status

    This in an interesting study into abuses of power by those with authority. Apparently, the greatest number of abuses occur when someone has a certain amount of power, but in a role that is relatively low status, whereas people with a high status job were less likely to abuse the power that they had. So there may be something in the traffic warden/little Hitler stereotype. Does it ring true...

  3. Popular culture & law making

    Link (again from my favourite feminist online magazine, one day I will stick to broadsheets ;p) There isn't much back story to how this film lead the south korean goverment to change their sex crime laws, but it did make me think. Does popular culture have an effect on our law and policy making here in the UK, and if so is that good or bad? And if it doesn't should goverments take popular...

  4. Gaddafi as leader of Libya - The end is nigh?

    http://news.sky.com/home/world-news/article/16055237 http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-14630702 TV footage now shows rebels inside of Gaddafi's compound in the centre of Libya. Nobody seems to know where the leader of Libya actually is and it seems that the end if nigh. There have been hiccups along the way in recent days, such as claims of the leaders son (Saif) being captured, but...

  5. Faster than light

    Hi not sure where this goes.it's not politics but it would be a cool http://skepticalteacher.wordpress.com/2011/09/23/lets-go-slow-on-cern-faster-than-light-claims/ There's a link at the top. What do you guys think about the results, is Einstein wrong? Or are the results a fluke? I'm thinking fluke, I recon they've mis-calculated something.

  6. Times set by female runners in mixed races will not count

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/sport/2011/oct/13/paula-radcliffe-iaaf-records-women It might be sport/fitness related, but this is very much an issue for debate, what is going on here is pretty disgraceful and shouldn't be tolerated in the world of sports. Please have a look at the article and put your views in here.

  7. Medical records

    These days they're computerised. GPs and nurses have access at a click of a mouse to your entire life's medical history. Big brother State- what when it comes to applying for jobs and declaring on medical form and taking life/critical illness insurance. Do you worry about who has access to your medical details and anyone applied to inspect their records at the GP?

  8. The Next US President?

    I'm sure you are all aware that the selection process for the next US President is underway. It's pretty safe to assume who the Democratic Candidate will be but the Republican race has already started. With that in mind I figured that I should share one of the insights from a leading Republican candidate: "Carbon dioxide is portrayed as harmful. But there isn't even one study that can be...

  9. Global Women's Rights

    It's estimated that 90% of women in Afghanistan experience domestic violence. Take Aisha for example, whose nose and ears were cut off after attempting to flee a marriage which she was forced in to at sixteen. In many countries, rape is seen as a weapon of war, or so frequent in some societies that a device called the Rapex, which hooks on to a man's penis and can only be removed by a hospital,...

  10. Arrow Child Support as USA Politics.

    I am NOT campaigning here in the UK as I just want to discuss such things, but I am a candidate in my Maryland USA running for the US Senate 2012, my website click = HERE, and if I win then my politics will affect the entire USA. My point and platform is to radically reform the Child Support laws under US federal mandate. Link HERE. As like the law says the c/s must be taken as a percentage...

  12. OCD, bipolar, schizophrenic and the misuse of mental health terms

    Linkage (not sure if this was best placed here or in health) This really is a topic that urks me, and unlike the person that was interviewed for that article, I don't think its over-PC to suggest that its offencive (maybe not the correct word, but its certainly not right) to misuse medical diagnoses (especially mental illness and other so called invisable conditions), often in a way which...

  13. Indian callcentres - number of companies using them slowing down

    Awesome news: the number of UK companies using Indian callcentres is slowing down and about time too. The explosion of customer service outsourcing to Asia became so worrying in the last decade that there was the very real possibility that speaking to someone in Mumbai or Delhi when you called a company was going to be considered 'normal'. But this is great news, all we need now is to get it...

  17. London riots

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-14435251 Widely condemned as disgraceful by many; this started off as a peaceful protest at the death of a man who was shot a short while ago. Although a police officer was shot in the same incident. I understand people want answers, but as the news article correctly suggests, investigations are not instantaneous (if they were, they wouldn't have...

    Okay, here it is. I know that, that may cause an attack agnst me. However, I believe that Islam is the hidden casue of these riots. The English have been bombarded with the forceful islamic agenda, shariaha, halal this and halal that, the crimes committed by young Muslims who believe that raping young british girls is their spritual duty. They (the British) felt that they are losing their...

  25. Scotland's uni funding system faces legal challenge

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-14607122 So what are peoples views and opinions on this matter? I for one think that we need to have either a United Kingdom or a devolved one. Having this partial devolution allows situations like this to happen. It will be interesting to see what the legal outcome of this is.
