The West & some Arab nations wants IS destroyed? Everyone knows that airstrikes alone are not enough & that the coalition forces do not want to be the first to place boots on the ground.

So why is it that the ones doing the actual fighting against IS are not supported?

Has IS made a strategic blunder?

After the last 4 episodes, I think the 2014 Xmas Special will be Jenna's last.

Yesterday's show did throw up a wobbly - What if the next doctor is a woman?

@Glenn, looks like you could be right. That mysterious woman sure looks like it could be Riversong.

Hope she recovers, but another possible Darwin Award? Cyclists "undertaking" large vehicles turning left are putting their lives at risk...

Ludgate Circus accident

...the problem with most major cities is cyclists thinking that the Highway Code & the Road Traffic Act only apply to motor vehicles!

I can understand any authority in their stance against feeble excuses by parents in keeping their children away from school.

However, this really does say a lot about some of the a******'s employed within that industry...

Mum faces court over cancer girls absence

"Miss Capper said: "Libby woke up... saying that she's got a sore stomach and I get scared... I want to keep my eye on her."
The mother's legal team, Glaisyers, said the council was being "heavy handed and inflexible". "

I have not seen anybody talk about this. Thermal Paste. Besides getting a good bond between the cpu and cooler. If you put too much on the cpu and it oozes out and makes contact with the contact leads going to the cpu. The metal stuff in the thermal paste can cause a short.

To prevent that from happening, I always put just the right amount, evenly spread on the heastsink instead.

Absolutely disgusting! The UK for example can send India £340 million in aid, send Pakistan over £300 million for "security" in the fight against terrorism, yet we see this: - "However, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on Thursday made another urgent appeal for funds to help fight the disease, saying a $1bn trust fund he launched last month had received only $100,000."

Your Life, Health and Well Being, are not their concern.

Neither is yours, as seen by the slip-ups already made in the States. Anymore to come do you think?

Or i could beat myself over the head with a paddle and get much the same response.

Drugs don't like having their opinions challenged, and MP's have had so much propaganda as life-destroying evil things that must be eradicated, they won't back down now.


Looks much better this way :-)

What chance has change got when ideas float to the surface & someone attempts to try something, only to be told it won't work?

Just for once, how about helping the kid to prove whether his theories right or theirs are, rather than spout off about flaws!

Well, first off, you could try writing to the local Environmental Health office & after getting the usual reply,
fire off a complaint to your local police division, & again after getting the usual reply,
Write to your MP.
