    "Archaeologists digging in Priory Park in Chichester, West Sussex, where the remains of three near-complete Roman buildings were discovered".

    No, Guardian. Bad photo caption.

    These may have been the near-complete remains of three Roman buildings, though I very much doubt even that is true. I suspect they're the near-complete foundation and ground-plan of three Roman buildings. The buildings were undoubtedly complete while they were occupied. If anyone discovers near-complete Roman buildings in England I'll be extremely surprised and wonder where they'd been hiding all this while.

    I just saw the term "non-invasive blood test" in the New Scientist. I don't understand it.

    What's a non-invasive blood test?


    Most cells in the body secrete small globules called extracellular vesicles, which enter the blood supply and communicate with other cells. When cells in the pancreas turn cancerous, they produce different types of extracellular vesicles.

    Hu and his colleagues developed gold nanoparticles that selectively bind to these cancer vesicles in blood samples. Upon binding, the nanoparticles change their light-emitting properties, signalling the presence of pancreatic cancer.

    The cheap, quick test can be done on as little as one-thousandth of a millilitre of blood plasma.

    “There’s no doubt that early screening tests, particularly a non-invasive blood test like this one, would be very valuable,” says Anthony Gill at the University of Sydney. But the test still needs to be validated through wider testing, he says. “It’s early days yet.”

    From the report, it seems that the test can be accomplished using the blood collected by a finger-prick method, similar to the way diabetics test their blood glucose levels. That is considered non-invasive, compared to the venous blood draws required to collect blood for testing Cholesterol, or thyroid levels, and such.

    From the Guardian.

    Michael Heseltine says Brexit is 'man-size' task for Theresa May

    Given that it's International Women's Day, I think that's a bit deliberate on Hezza's part.

    Oh dear. There are times when the Oxford Comma really is relevant.
    On Brexit, he said his "biggest worry" was "obsessed" politicians ignoring the trade deficit and NHS funding.

    There has to be a better way of structuring that sentence, it's irrevocably ambiguous.

    He addressed the nation for the first time as someone who had been bloodied in the heavy burden of ordering military action as commander-in-chief of the world’s leading superpower.

    https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...s-struck-syria
    Bloodied?

    BLOODED, you fatuous twerp!

    Good lord where does the Guardian find these people. OED: Blood (verb): To smear the face of (a novice at hunting) with the blood of a first kill; to initiate (a person) in the art of hunting, or into a particular hunt.

    The entire sentence is insanely wrong from start to finish. The "heavy burden of ordering military action as commander-in-chief of the world’s leading superpower"? Seriously? There's a reporter capable of writing that sort of cobblers and an editor prepared to allow it into print?
