One instance of an egregious lack of proportionality on the part of the corporation was a contribution by black Radio 1 DJ Clara Amfo. Sobbing on air over the terrible murder of George Floyd, she treated listeners to a lecture about the ‘insidious’ nature of racism in Britain. She should be given a slot on Newsnight to rant alongside Emily Maitlis. … [Read more...] about STEPHEN GLOVER: The BBC’s comic bias is proof it has given up on impartiality

Jimenez and other experts in aerosol transmission have said the WHO is holding too dearly to the notion that germs are spread primarily though contact with a contaminated person or object. That idea was a foundation of modern medicine, and explicitly rejected the obsolete miasma theory that originated in the Middle Ages postulating that poisonous, foul-smelling vapors made up of decaying matter caused diseases such as cholera and the Black Death. … [Read more...] about Pandemic exposes scientific rift over proving when germs are airborne
Hyman's life changed when he found himself in the World Trade Centre on 9/11. He does not want much of this "traumatic" experience to appear in print but admits it made him, a workaholic who sleeps for only a few hours a night, want to spend more time with his family.

British anti aircraft fire rips through the tail and wings of enemy planes as they zoom through the air trying to engage with the RAF heroes who had out-produced and out-thought their tactics.
