Are you and your pet(s) (dog or cat) ready for the Christmas Tree?

Dec 21, 2014 - 9:56 PM - by Lady J
Lady J's Avatar
Did you know holly, mistletoe, and poinsettia plants are poisonous to dogs or cats? If you normally use these plants to decorate your home, they should be kept in an area your pet cannot reach.

Tinsel can add a nice sparkling touch to the tree, but make sure you hang it up out of your pet's reach. Ingesting the tinsel can potentially block their intestines, which is generally only remedied through surgical means.

Edible tree decorations -- whether they be... [Read More]

Apple's Broken Promises

Did anyone see the Panorama Exposé on Apple?

I watched it on the BBC iPlayer last night & although it was horrific, nothing about Apple really surprises me. It showed the near slave labour it uses in its factories in China, making people work 16 hours a day, sleeping 12 to a room, resulting in their falling asleep at the machines. Then there were the tin mines, which they use as the basis for the solder on their electrics, where children are used to cause landslides by... [Read More]

Gaming Consoles

Dec 19, 2014 - 3:26 AM - by Ahso!
Ahso!'s Avatar
I've been thinking about buying one, the Xbox One specifically. I'm hesitant because I'm afraid I won't use it much after the initial infatuation wears off which then results in the thing just sitting unused or it being sold on Ebay.

I've never been a gamer, but who knows, I might find some interest in it. I abhor violence so those types of games are out.

The Xbox One offers a bit more than just games. The Kinect attachment invites interactivity, and, being a... [Read More]

Mandy Rice-Davies, RIP

Dec 19, 2014 - 2:44 AM - by FG
There were a few moments during the 1960s when the dignity of the ruling class in Britain was so punctured that it has never since recovered. The world still pivots on those moments. One, in the form of an acronym, has entered Internet usage as "Mandy Rice-Davis Applies", or MRDA.
Barrister: "Do you know Lord Astor has made a statement to the police saying that these allegations of yours are absolutely untrue?"

US participants for psychology dissertation?

Dec 18, 2014 - 1:47 PM - by RTulley
Hi all,

I am currently in my third year of university studying Psychology. For my dissertation I’m conducting a study on public perceptions of multitasking in the general public and therefore need a wide variety of participants to fill in a questionnaire on this topic. The study is being conducted in a number of countries, however this one is mainly targeting the US so answers are preferable from US residents.

The questionnaire can be found through this link (... [Read More]

The Interview

Dec 18, 2014 - 3:14 AM - by FG
I note from today's Independent that
US intelligence officials have reportedly concluded that North Korea is behind the recent cyber-attack on Sony Pictures. The wide-ranging hack of Sony’s computer systems is believed to have been a response to the Hollywood studio’s comedy film The Interview, which depicts the death of North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un. An unnamed US government official told NBC News, “We have found linkage to the North Korean government.”

Who would have thought that the worlds greatest Steeple Chaser could be retrained In the finer points of dressage ? Given that Grade 1's tend to be the most difficult, highly strung creatures on earth. All I can say, Is a massive well done to Laura.

Why do people have to hurt children ????

More than 130 people, including 100 students, have been killed and 122 others injured in a Taliban seizure of a military-run school in the city of Peshawar, Pakistan, according to provincial authorities.

The numbers of dead and injured may still rise as the casualties of the assault are counted.
