Clean houses: Mi Casa es Su Casa?

31 January, 2014 // 0 Comments

If Bigfoot researchers wish to be taken seriously, they could start by cleaning their own house. The biggest threat to their credibility is not skeptics nor a ridiculing public but instead those who provide an endless stream of bogus claims and evidence,” The above is a quote from Bed Radford featured in an article on the International Business [...]

Dr Jenner’s House: a betrayal of science?

26 January, 2014 // 4 Comments

Dr Edward Jenner is considered a hero of science. His work saved countless lives and his development of the first ever Vaccine (to prevent smallpox) eventually led to the eradication of the disease and the development of  the Science of Immunology which continues to save lives in the present  day. Pity then that The Jenner Trust see it as [...]

Staying strong: When sympathy falls flat on its face

20 January, 2014 // 6 Comments

I’ve noticed a number of people sharing the above sympathetic graphic on Facebook and Twitter. It’s a nice sentiment, but I think it’s completely rubbish. It reads: Depression, anxiety and panic attacks are not a sign of weakness . they are signs of having tried to remain strong for too long. did you know that 1 in 3 of us go [...]
