Justice for the size six

After all this time has the Independent finally got to the bottom of the horror of the Hillsborough disaster.

There it is. Nike airs are to blame.

In further revelations on page 6 it seems that both the Fukashima and Chernobyl melt downs were due to engineers and technicians refusing to carry out essential maintenance in their pants and vests when they'd forgotten their overalls.

It's just a co-incidence

Of course there's no way the two stories next to each other on the Daily Telegraph's landing page could be linked is there???

Science is hard

I used to particularly hate microbiology when I was doing my A-levels, too much Latin type names that were impossible to remember.

It seems that Laura Donnelly - health correspondent at the Telegraph also struggles.

It should be Helicobacter pylori not Helicopter pylori - which I think is Italian for "Man who drives Chopper."

Maybe they're editing their newspaper on an iPhone and autocorrect is in charge?

The great global warming scam

The Daily Mail uncovers those dastardly scientists have been pulling the wool over our eyes for years and actually the planet's A/C is set to cool. Don't take their word for it, here's a graph so you know they've got their science shit together.

Irrefutable eh? Look at the "Heavy Black Line" it's close to the edge of the 95% confidence interval. This surely means that - sometime in the future - it'll fall outside of that and we can all start filling up the Land Rover with leaded four star and piping the fumes directly into kitten's lungs. No harm, no foul - the graph says they'll be fine.

Let's think about it though what it's saying in the real world is that there's a 5% chance any data point could fall outside that range. Five points in every hundred will be above or below the light red area.

So how often do we ever see a 5% chance coming off? Perhaps the Daily Mail has some examples...

Hmm every now and again then.

Don't Be Evil

Sneaky tax dodging Google executive Eric Schmidt has been plastering himself all over the press defending his company's anti-social tax avoidance as "Capitalism".

 The Inquirer

Erm Google?

Google's famous motto is "Don't Be Evil" and this is backed up by their code of conduct. They take this quite seriously...

We expect all of our employees and Board members to know and follow the Code. Failure to do so can result in disciplinary action, including termination of employment.

I wonder how he feels holding himself up to Section III Avoiding conflicts of interest where it states...

Would this activity embarrass Google or me if it showed up on the front page of a newspaper or a blog?

While it might not embarrass him - he seems 'dance a little jig' happy with the arrangement - does it embarrass Google? I suppose we'll only know if we see him carrying a cardboard box of family photos and mugs full of pens out of reception escorted by a confused security guard.
