    Maplin collapses as rescue talks fail - BBC News (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-43223175) "One of the UK's biggest electronics retailers has collapsed into administration after talks with buyers failed to secure a sale" I haven't an ounce of sympathy. For the last twenty years I've...

  5. Plastics

    "WHO launches health review after microplastics found in 90% of bottled water" I bet more than 90% of bottles in which water is sold are made from plastics. I bet the plastics found in the bottles are the same as the bottles are made of. I bet they could find plasticizers too if they...

  6. ‘serial bomber’

    Bad enough with the school shooting, it seems somebody figured out a way to one-up that. As a nation, we debate how to best protect our children in schools, now how we protect everybody from such random violence? Really nothing new, just a way to grab headlines. After fourth Austin...

    A gentleman calling himself Ja Rule appears to be taking flak for a failed festival on a Caribbean island (https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/apr/29/ja-rule-heartbroken-after-fyre-festival-descends-into-disaster).

  8. What just happened this last weekend?

    We had Davos, and Macron in particular making a bid for leadership in Europe (probably a good thing but does it mean much?) and also Trump proclaiming his brilliance. Big business liked it, mostly. We had a Trump interview with Morgan in which he claimed to get lots of fan mail from Brits and...

  11. Alaska quake

    That was a thumping great earthquake an hour ago in Alaska, I expect it's the main news for the day. I hope people on the coast stay safe, it was very big and close to the surface.

  14. End of the post–Cold War holiday

    I remember Duck and cover (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duck_and_cover) drills in school. I also remember as I went under my small desk looking at the windows along the wall and imagining the glass breaking and flying into the room. Of course, there was no way to know how close or from what...

  15. Will Oprah Run?

    There's speculation swirling around the media today about this because of a speech she gave at an awards show last night. I watched the speech on youtube and it is quite good and well delivered. Would you vote for Ophrah Winfrey for president? In spite of her complete lack of understanding...

    What drivel this is. The Washington state governor, Jay Inslee, declared a state of emergency and visited the scene on Monday. He emphasised that the cause of the crash remained unknown. “There are four things we need to do: express compassion for these families, respect first responders, stay...
