"That is quite different from awarding BSc degrees in subjects that are not science at all, but are positively anti-science.
"Yet this sort of gobbledygook is being taught in some UK universities as though it were science."
i wonder if there was a tense moment in the BBC newsroom re: the spelling of "gobbledygook" (i always thought it was "gobbleygook" !!)

Australia is urgently looking to establish a "wild camel management plan" as the country's severe drought is sending camels stampeding into settlements looking for water.
And by wild camel management plan...they mean "culling."
Camels were introduced to Australia in the 19th century...interesting...

They helped to build the Australian nation and had a cross-continental railway named after their handlers. But now the camel population here is wreaking havoc in the desert and remote communities because a desperate lack of water.
Wild camels, descendants of the beasts that helped early explorers to open up the country's vast arid interior, have rampaged through a settlement in Western Australia, trampling toilets, taps and air conditioners in a frenzied effort to find water.
A severe drought has exacerbated the problems posed by the animals, which cause damage to the environment, agriculture and property. They are "mad with thirst", according to Glenn Edwards, of the Northern Territory Parks and Wildlife Service.

In 1876, a young girl named Jenn was walking down a river, an insane man killed her by stabbing her in the back, raping her, and then hanging her in his closet. While he hanged her he said Bukakke Bukkake.
Now that you have read this message, she will find you and her dead body will haunt your house for 5 years. Every night you go to sleep she will appear in your closet, hanging their with her glowing red eyes.

Watch a clip on YouTube: Dolphin Massacre In Japan
Most people in the world don't know about it, so tell your friends & family about it to raise public awareness for our ecosystem.
SPREAD THE WORD!
Dolphins are an ENDANGERED SPECIES.
The Japanese EAT 23,000 dolphins every year for sushi & sashimi since 400 years ago.
Dolphins are migratory mammals, therefore they belong to the world, NOT to the Japanese alone.
The Japanese have NO right to eat them to extinction.
Some dolphin species ARE endangered...but not most. Interestingly, I also found the first "response" today by HermyH:
