11-09-2005 05:40

Interhigh School opened its nonexistent doors Mon. 5 Sept. 2005: 09.30 hrs. Students went straight to work without fuss in small classes. Aged 11 - 16, mainly UK resident, with a few internationals, many have escaped bullying, or boredom, or feel they just don't fit the standard schooling system.

09-09-2005 12:54

etc etc

"The Lancet's editors and the journal's International Advisory Board were unaware of Reed Elsevier's involvement with DSEi until a few weeks ago. We are deeply troubled by this connection to the arms trade. On behalf of our readers and contributors, we respectfully ask Reed Elsevier to divest itself of all business interests that threaten human, and especially civilian, health and well-being."

The city I called home for ten years is dying
But one thing you said back then finally makes sense to me, in a way it never did before. In the battle to save the people of New Orleans, you are either with us, or against us. And it is crystal clear what side you're on.

Ketamine cheapest in Notts

06-09-2005 17:35

A few days ago reports started to appear in media that Ketamine, an anaesthetic normally used by vets, is getting more and more used as a club drug. Nottingham now is apperently the cheapest place to get it. Apperently costing an average of £31 a gram in the UK, in Nottingham the prices can be as low as £15. At the moment the drug is legal to carry, but new legislation will see it become a class C drug soon.

For more information on the effects and risks of ketamine go to

Just a good night's sleep...

01-09-2005 20:06

First they said they were planning new fly routes. "Only for day-time use". Then they started flying over night. Many flights... Local residents in Leicestershire have been campaiging for the last year and a half, trying to get a proper night sleep, as Nottingham East Midlands Airport keeps expanding and leaving communities surrounding the airport in the dark over future plans. In July, Steve Charlish of the campaign group DEMAND, who lives 26 nautical miles from the airport, said in the Observer scheduled flights could be as high as 65 per night, leaving him with not much sleep. The campaign groups seem to grow in strength, getting support from local MP's Edward Garnier QC, Rt Hon Kenneth Clarke, Rt Hon Stephen Dorrell, Alan Duncan, Keith Vaz and Nicky Morgan. Recently Belvoir Brewery in Old Dalby launched 'Nightcap', a beer to support the campaign efforts.

A large public meeting is to be held on September 23, from 7.30pm, at Kibworth Grammar School, Kibworth, Leicester.

Say no to Indonesia as a tourist destination

28-08-2005 02:27

No holiday and not cheap!
But perhaps people want to take drugs when they go out and just because it is not a 'legal drug' doesn't mean it's not useful or even more useful. So I guess now the Australian authorities will insist that this is what can happen in Australia somewhere down the track and more likely to be being promoted for that very reason by propagandists here?
