Cuba, far from being the ogre that it is portrayed in the right wing Western media is a socially responsible country that wants to help every individual when it comes to health and medicine. Something that Fidel became personally involved in. Which other leader of a country would have done that for its citizens? Cuba’s biotechnological revolution
More data from the Cassini probe. There probably aren’t any little green men but maybe the precursors of the life process. Cassini data from Saturn
Money making trumps getting the best medicines to the right people. It never seems to change. TB is advancing but these medicines could help
If Darwin was alive today there would be no need for him to go all the way to the Galapagos Islands to prove the origin of species. He could have written about it in the London Underground. Evolution in the Underground
I thought maybe that I had missed a few weeks and it was April 1st when a colleague pointed out this article in the Metro newspaper. Are people allowed to play April 1st jokes before the date?
I know that there are a group of people out there who are completely dumb, lazy, vacuous, rich or a combination of these things and that if humanity were mainly made up of these people then the human race would be rapidly heading towards an evolutionary dead end but this really does take the biscuit 🙂
There are some of us out there who can’t even boil an egg and as such are prepared to pay for a semi prepared boiled egg which still needs to be placed in boiling water. But isn’t that what you do anyway? This must be the greatest legal confidence trick going. Next up selling packaged ice to the Eskimos.
Check this out, the Yowk at yowk.co.uk. If you buy this and then complain that you haven’t got enough money you shouldn’t be allowed out on your own as you are dangerous to the rest of us so no breeding.The yolk is on you!
I like to try and keep an open mind and therefore for me I try to ask Why, How, Where, When, What and Who to any bit of information that I receive. I think, and that is a dangerous concept in some circumstances, that we don’t teach children these fundamental questions. Our global education systems or alternative dogmas teach us at an early age to accept what we are told and fill us fall of facts that suit that nation or part of the world. We will only be free as individuals, and there are many who don’t want us to be, when every child can grow up and make a critical analysis of the information being presented to them. So for all you adults that read blogs here is a photo and a question to stir your grey cells. I took this photo on a sunny Saturday morning in October 2013 in Switzerland with autumn on its way and winter already pushing the temperature down. On a bush that had long since flowered there were many Red Admiral butterflies. On the Friday night it had rained and on the Saturday morning the sun came out and all the butterflies arrived to presumably feed and create 2014’s generation. So the question is “What” became of the butterflies and all those carbon, nitrogen and oxygen atoms and the water molecules amongst the other elements that make up these delicate but complex and beautiful creatures? What happens to the electrical energy that drives their tiny movements? Perhaps your explanation or belief is one of science or a more simplistic religious one in that God just puts the butterflies away for winter. For me the components of the butterflies were recycled and are now something else. They were something else before and will be something else again as we are ourselves will be. Some philosophical questions, some food for your thoughts. Copyright Paul Andrews and Caroline Schmutz, Junagarh Media, http://www.junagarhmedia.co.uk .
