I remember a recent story about firefighters dying in a fire here which was made worse by the fact that the fire was started deliberately :(

A prototype of the world's first electronic contact lens, known as an "e-lens", has gone on public display at the Science Museum, London. The lens is made up from eye-friendly plastics, miniscule LEDs and microelectronics.

I got lost in this maze once and got sun burnt & dehydrated before I got out!



Gardener Jules Curtis finishes giving the yew tree maze at Longleat in Wiltshire its spring cut. It takes a team of six gardeners one month to clip the 1.7 mile (2.7 km) maze, which first opened in 1976. Picture: bnps.co.uk

Perhaps you could explain the reason the admirals of britain were so heralded for the british constitution, of course, the spanish french and Dutch controlled the americas, but, what pratronage and nobility will be acknowledged to the next frontier pioneers?
