    Re: Unintelligibly illiterate BBC News article link text

    There are times when I simply can't penetrate the mind of whoever writes news items for the BBC news website. What possible meaning can I glean from this

    Scientists say they have seen a remarkable collection of blue whales in the coastal waters around the UK sub-Antarctic island of South Georgia.

    Their 23-day survey counted 55 animals - a total that is unprecedented in the decades since commercial whaling ended.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-51553381
    Am I to take it that in the decades before commercial whaling ended, those numbers were commonplace? Why was commercial whaling ended, if that's the case?

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

However, we have taken the decision to continue with meter installs, as this means that the more of our customers have Smart Meters the more they'll be able to manage their Gas & Electricity Payments from home.

    "Some of London's most popular landmarks are devoid of the usual crowds as people stay indoors to help combat coronavirus."


    Some, BBC? Is that the best you can manage?

    And the Guardian, screwing up units again. "In the last month, there was a 535% rise in daily traffic to the Zoom.us download page". Or hourly, or per minute, or any time unit you care to use. Why is there a time unit on the 535%? It's the rise in traffic.

    Yet more illiteracy on the part of the BBC link editor. "Coronavirus: Trump says peak is passed and US to reopen soon"? No, it is past. It has been passed, it is past.

    Every day they reach a new peak. With their distaste of Social Distancing, far from being past the peak, they've only just begun.

    I was correcting their grammar, not the facts they were attempting to convey. Correcting their facts would take far too long.

    The BBC appears to carry confirmation that the scientific community has made contact with extraterrestrial intelligent life.

    "When I first checked the visibility of OJ 287, I was shocked to find that it became visible to Spitzer right on the day when the next flare was predicted to occur," said Dr Seppo Laine, a Caltech, US, staff scientist who oversaw the Spitzer viewing.

    "It was extremely fortunate that we would be able to capture the peak of this flare with Spitzer, because no other human-made instruments were capable of achieving this feat at that specific point in time."

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-52464250
    "no other human-made instruments"? So alien technology was capable well as the Spitzer telescope?

    Or is human-made slightly tautologous.
