The real reason those refugee children seem so grown-up

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 13:51:50 +0000

Your home town is being ravaged by artillery fire from friend and foe alike, the outskirts have been littered with landmines, there are snipers and suicide bombers on almost every torn apart street corner. Your significant other and your two middle children are buried under six feet of breeze blocks and rubble.

Online hearing tests

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 12:02:54 +0000

Okay…as a wannabe rockstar and record producer, my ears are important…as are yours, of course. I’ve always felt that I could hear slightly better with my left ear (listening to music on headphones highlighted this) but in mixing music it’s not been apparent over the last few years, so maybe they evened out. I do … Continue reading "Online hearing tests"

Scientific calculators

Tue, 11 Oct 2016 10:10:09 +0000

I first encountered Mateusz Mucha when he put together a website that let you track your blood pressure (a boon for both hypo- and hyper-tensives as well as hypochondriacs). He has now expanded his repertoire and built a collection of useful scientific calculators, here are just a few of them with Mucha’s own descriptions: Significant … Continue reading "Scientific calculators"

Sun dogs

Mon, 10 Oct 2016 07:45:38 +0000

I think I probably first knew the term “sun dogs” courtesy of a book by Robert Greenler entitled “Rainbows, Haloes and Glories” back in the 1980s, but it was in the Rush song Chain Lightning when I first took notice of the term and started spotting them in the sky. Sun dogs are sometimes known … Continue reading "Sun dogs"

Perhaps one of the most reviled of busker songs is the 1995 Oasis hit “Wonderwall” from the album  (What’s the Story) Morning Glory? The song is namechecked by Scottish band Travis in their first single “Writing to reach you” when singer Fran Healy asks “what’s a wonderwall, anyway?” Well, if he’d taken notes in Beatlography at … Continue reading "Classic Chords #16 – Writing is on Oasis Wonderwall"

Meningitis FAQ

Thu, 06 Oct 2016 07:35:30 +0000

You know when they say the symptoms of meningitis are commonly a headache and a stiff neck and perhaps purple blotches on the skin that don’t pale when pressed…well…it can be far worse than that and can kill. If you’re in a vulnerable group, make sure you’re vaccinated. It is highly recommended that new university … Continue reading "Meningitis FAQ"

Lost to the Weather #Rock

Tue, 04 Oct 2016 10:29:48 +0000

I was musing on finding a subject for a new song that was more of a short story than my usual stream of consciousness stuff when I saw the phrase “lost to the winter weather” in a random tweet…I’d not really come across that phrase “lost to the weather” but it put me in mind … Continue reading "Lost to the Weather #Rock"
