    Saturation News Coverage - CNN

    I'm surrounded by news coverage at work and I sometimes buy a Sunday paper as well. I find that Al Jazeera is the best rounded site and keeps me up to date adequately.

    I miss my 3310. A friend was showing me the price of old phones on eBay the other day and I was shocked. Some are now collectors items and sell for £100+.

    Saturation News Coverage - CNN

    I only use Al Jazeera. They have a good mobile app, it's free and they cover the news well.

    I finally got a new phone yesterday. I didn't realise how awful my old one was until I set this up.

    Evol Teriyaki Chicken

    Did you eat it? It looks absolutely vile, and has that awful unhealthy beige tone to it. I wouldn't even recommend you writing to the company as you'll just receive free products.

    "I'm gonna hit you so hard that when you wake up, your clothes will be out of style" Bit silly but makes me smile everytime!

    A typical weekday in the life

    Mines incredibly mundane. I'm not becoming a full time student until September so currently; Wake up at 7.30am, get showered and dressed, make the kids breakfast, make lunches and then leave the house at 8.30am. Start work at about 9am. Leave work at 1pm, sometimes I stop in a local cafe for...

    People interested in science

    Individuals should be free to pursue anything they choose in life. I do feel that developed countries have a duty to fund scientific research and considering how important science is I think its a massively underfunded area. I'm pretty sure this is also the point that Tyson would of been making...

    True but once you get them home you can decant them to a reusable jug. The environmental implications have sold the idea to me.

    Random Thoughts part three

    I like the idea of milk bags although I've never seen them in the uk. The plastic bottles we get always leak if you lay them down, are prone to breaking and take up far too much room in my recycling bin.

    How many particles could be crammed into the universe?

    Do you know roughly how many atoms are in a grain of sand? Thinking about that means I'm therefore too lazy to even begin to attempt this.

    Why can't I eat old cooked meat?

    When I first moved out on my own I had some ground beef in the fridge that was forgotten about. I was paid monthly at the time and after 3.5 weeks I was running low on everything. The beef smelt awful and was green and slimy. I cooked it up with a tomato sauce and it tasted fine. I did see a...

    Sexism in society

    The username is in homage to the character. She was one of the most influential role models I had growing up. Maybe I did take offence too easily but I found it very patronizing that someone would think I needed looking after. Surely if someone comes into a relationship with that opinion it...

    Sexism in society

    I am currently working on an raf base as a civilian. Men and women in the same trade still have different fitness level requirements and surely if you are first and foremost a soldier then you need to be fit enough to be called upon at any given time? From what I've witnessed the raf are far too...

    Useful maths & physics books to read before starting university?

    What is mathematics? By courant is very good. The road to reality by penrose is very interesting and can often be picked up cheaply. Most of all enjoy some time off before your studies begin.

    Sexism in society

    Ultimately both genders will be doing the same job and if called in to combat they will be carrying the same weight, using the same rifles and covering the same distances. The fitness tests should reflect this.

    Sexism in society

    I can't say I've heard of upworthy before today and I haven't looked at anything else on the site. I have friends who believe in the fallacy of it's us against them. They are so wrapped up in the hatred they've acquired from feeling discriminated against that they fail to see that sexism...

    Sexism in society

    I was sent a link to this short French film earlier today, although it doesn't go into all the details of issues I have faced in the past I found it interesting. http://www.upworthy.com/a-french-film-showing-men-what-being-a-woman-feels-like-kinda?g=2&c=reccon1 Most of the sexism I...

    I tried a new cheap curry recipe recently that was made from bananas and used English tea instead of stock. The mix of spices was ok but on a whole it was vile. I don't watch much tv but I'm feeling rather sad that I've finished all my (current) favorite series. Guess I'll have to clean the...

    I need help - ly - trouble with calculus class

    Can you resit any of the exams? What are you studying at home and does it relate to the syllabus? Also can you get access to online lecture notes? If you've covered all the above then is your exam technique an issue?

    Start studying physics?

    I don't understand why learning maths puts people off studying physics. There seems to be massive issues with educational system when so many people seem afraid of tackling any kind of mathematics. I'm not exceptional clever, but I love maths. Anyone who can think logically has the ability to...

    How to get someone off your mind

    E-Cigarettes, being hailed as the smoker's smart choice

    I quit (cold turkey) then started almost 10 years later after a night out with friends who smoke and a stressful time at work. I think I'll never have the non-smokers mindset, the habit is too deeply ingrained. One of the biggest issues with the e-cigarettes is the users smoking them indoors...

    Thanks for the link, it is odd that the study focused on men only! So; a) only men were picked for the study (why?) b) It's the fallacy of incomplete evidence, meaning I'm feeling sad as I want beer to make me clever! I'm a bit dim and I like drinking beer :cry:

    I seem to do my best work after a glass of wine. I've also had moments of clarity whilst out walking or in the bath. The human brain is rather odd.
