With the exams approaching, you can expect to see more revision themed posts from me. And I was intending to start that trend about now; however, a couple of really interesting stories in the news caught my eye and I was distracted:

“One of the things I don’t want to do is to look at my grandchildren and hear them say: “Grandfather, you knew it was happening – and you did nothing.”
