An astronaut with titanium hair follicles ...

"My old mate Tiff Needell, from commercial television, is perfectly capable of power-sliding a space shuttle but argues to this day that the most fun he’s ever had is in a Morris Minor, because it can be provoked into some tail-out action at about 2mph. So it goes with the Mazda. In short, you don’t need to be an astronaut with titanium hair follicles to get the best out of it."

A plea for Kay Gilderdale


Following the death of her beloved daughter, Lynn, for whom she cared for 17 years, Kay Gilderdale has pleaded guilty to aiding and abetting suicide, though not guilty to attempted murder and another count of aiding and abetting attempted suicide.

Regrettably, the Crown Prosecution lawyer declined the invitation of Judge Richard Brown to drop the charges because he said it was not in the public interest and a trial is scheduled for 12 January 2010.

The Crown Prosecution Service, however, could choose to drop the case at any time.

The Director of Public Prosecutions, Keir Starmer, QC, did intervene in the case against Mark and Julie James, the parents of Daniel James, the rugby player who sustained dreadful injuries and wished to die.

Since MS sufferer Debbie Purdy won her case in the House of Lords for clarification of the law about assisted suicides, it would be an appropriate time to write to the DPP with your views about assisted suicides and appeal for his intervention in the case against Kay. May I suggest that you emphasise that you do not wish to discuss anything about the case, since it is before the courts but just plead that the DPP intervenes to have the case dropped. Since there will have to be a debate in the House of Commons before any change in the law, you should copy your letter to your MP.

My appeal is for at least one person in each of the 650 constituencies to write, in order to reach every MP and maximise support for Kay.

The address for letters is

Keir Starmer, QC,
The Director of Public Prosecutions
Crown Prosecution Service
50 Ludgate Hill

You can find your MP here
The Postal Address is
Name of your MP
MP for Your Constituency
House of Commons
(Your letter will reach your MP even when the House is not sitting)

If you wish to make your support public and to encourage others to follow your example, please forward it to me and we shall put it on a section on our website with all the others who do the same.
There is also a page on Facebook called Prosecuting Kay Gilderdale is NOT in the PUBLIC interest
Click here ... 984&ref=ts

Will you do it now? I can't think of anything more important just now.

Love & best wishes

weasel science results?

(NaturalNews) One in seven scientists report that they have known colleagues
to falsify or slant the findings of their research, according to a study
conducted by researchers from the University of Edinburgh, Scotland, and
published in the journal PLoS One.

A number of scientific data falsification scandals have emerged in recent
years, such as the case of a South Korean researcher who invented data on
stem cell research. At the same time, increasing controversy over close
industry ties to medical research has called into question whether
researchers who take money from drug companies might be induced to falsify
their data.

"Increasing evidence suggests that known frauds are just the tip of the
iceberg and that many cases are never discovered," said researcher Daniele

The researchers reviewed the results of 21 different scientific misconduct
surveys that had been performed between 1985 and 2005. All respondents were
asked whether they or anyone they knew of had taken part in either
fabrication (outright invention of data) or "questionable practices."

Questionable practices were any improper procedure short of fabrication,
including failing to publish results contradicting one's prior research,
modifying data based on a "gut feeling," changing conclusions after pressure
from a funder or selectively choosing which data to include in an analysis.

One in seven scientists said that they were aware of colleagues who had
engaged in fabrication, while nearly half -- 46 percent -- admitted to
knowing of colleagues who had used questionable practices. Only two percent,
however, admitted to fabricating results themselves.

While two percent is higher than previous estimates of the prevalence of
data fabrication, researchers believe that the number is still too low. In
all likelihood, it reflects both a reluctance by researchers to admit to
serious misconduct and a tendency to interpret one's behavior as favorably
as possible -- questionable instead of fabrication, or acceptable rather
than questionable.

Researchers in the medical and pharmacalogical fields were the most likely
to admit to misconduct than researchers in other fields.
