Required Readings

Required Readings, 10 November 2013

FDA measures, supplements and teacher shortages. Good morning everyone! Have a nice Sunday and enjoy the reading!

A storm in a honey jar – I’ve always liked Richard Dawkins, and I do think he’s right in this. I wonder how many fatal incidents have actually been stymied by these measures.

Herbal Supplements Are Often Not What They Seem – some herbs are replaced by other equally non-tested (and probably equally non-effective) herbs, but many people consume them and it makes no sense for there to be NO controls at all in such a big market.

New System Allows Passengers To Talk, Text During Flights – yet some things have improved since then. I don’t know how good this is though, I’ve always appreciated flying time as 100% reading time. Many people who didn’t normally read, read during flight, but since in-flight wi-fi was introduced, this sadly started to end.

Science and maths teacher shortage may loom for England – but luckily they are taking measures to solve it.
