Over three days, sport will show that Ireland can divide or unite to the mutual benefit of all "IndyWatch Feed Politics.eu"

In a short three day period in sport, well see how two conflicting (paradoxical) dynamics can work well on the island of Ireland. By all accounts, the atmosphere in the ground was warm in the Aviva Stadium in Dublin between the Republic and Northern Ireland last night.

Neither team has been showing great form against other teams, so both are adrift of their ambitions. The internationalisation of the EPL means theyre not picking from the top. But it was a lively game of keen competition with a respectful and friendly rivalry.

Tomorrow, the whole island will be willingly united as Ireland rugby team, presently the second best rugby side in the world rankings, take on the worlds best in New Zealand. Its a fixture no longer mired in long-term pessimism since that memorable game two years ago in Chicago.

Ireland knows it can beat the All Blacks now, and so does the New Zealand team. There are few fans from Holywood to Sundays Well who do not tingle at the prospect of actually beating them at home. And the fan base has been growing larger and wider on the island since the Grand Slam of 2009.

The recognition of individual choice in soccer has allowed us to move away from the bitter resentments of the past, and in rugby that free choice (and the benefits of the professional era) has led us to put out a team thats unrivalled in the history of Irish rugby.

BBC Drama: Strangers and Brothers by C.P.Snow #9/13 The Inquiring Mind

Wikipedia

Strangers and Brothers is a series of novels by C. P. Snow, published between 1940 and 1970. They deal with among other things questions of political and personal integrity, and the mechanics of exercising power.

All eleven novels in the series are narrated by the character Lewis Eliot. The series follows his life and career from humble beginnings in an English provincial town, to reasonably successful London lawyer, to Cambridge don, to wartime service in Whitehall, to senior civil servant and finally retirement.

The New Men deals with the scientific communitys involvement in (and reaction to) the development and deployment of nuclear weapons during the Second World War. The Conscience of the Rich concerns a wealthy, Anglo-Jewish merchant-banking family. Time of Hope and George Passant depict the price paid by clever, poor young men to escape their provincial origins.

Snow analyses the professional world, scrutinising microscopic shifts of power within the enclosed settings of a Cambridge college, a Whitehall ministry, a law firm. For example, in the novels set in the Cambridge college (a thinly veiled Christs), a small, disparate group of men is typically required to reach a collective decision on an important subject. In The Masters, the dozen or so college members elect a new head (the Master) by majority vote. In The Affair, a small group of dons sets out to correct a possible injustice: they must convince the rest of the college to re-open an investigation into scientific fraud. In both novels, the characters strongly resist letting in the external world, whether it be the press, public opinion, the college Visitor, or outside experts.

The books were adapted by the BBC into a 13-episode television series, which began airing in January 1984. The series starred Shaughan Seymour as Lewis, Sheila Ruskin as his mentally troubled first wife Sheila and Cherie Lunghi as his second wife Margaret. Other actors of note who took part in the series include Anthony Hopkins, Nigel Havers, Peter Sallis and Tom Wilkinson.

Political Activists in Cassocks No Minister

Today's Australian carries a couple of interesting headlines.

New Zealand blocks holidaying refugees coming from Nauru

and


Nauru claims refugees are trying to return

The first headline is self explanatory while the second refers to forty or so of the many illegal immigrants resettled in the USA who find life in the States is too tough and want to return to their concentration camp on Nauru Island.  Apparently you have to work for a living in the US.

Nauru - Day 3

(pic stolen from The Australian)

A few weeks ago Adolf sat through a Sunday sermon delivered by a highly educated woman with a pommy accent who told the congregation Australia is running a concentration camp in Nauru.

Some concentration camp.   

Inmates can go on holiday whenever they please, run businesses in the local towns and have their children sent to Australia for medical treatment, the latter paid for by Australian tax payers.

Trivial pursuit The Inquiring Mind

I cannot understand how these students are taking this exam, when they do not even have a grasp of basic, very basic English.

It is a damning indictment of the eductaion system and of the quality of our teachers, especially as these pupils are presumably supposed to be at higher levels of attainment than the majority.

The issue was made even more appalling by the reported comment of Graeme Ball, Chair of NZ History Teachers Association 

He called the exam a little bit of a snafu on the part of NZQA, and said the language used in questions should be accessible to all

The exam was not testing comprehension, so it was unfair to make that part of the assessment, he said.

I beg to differ with Mr Ball. All eams test comprehension, they are supposed to do so. They are tests of understanding, thus they require comprehension.

Homepaddock

Year 13 secondary school pupils have launched a petition in fear of failing a history exam because they didnt know what trivial meant.

Students sitting the NZQA Level 3 History causes and consequences paper on Wednesday were confronted with the word in a quote from Julius Caesar: Events of importance are the result of trivial causes.

What does this say about the vocabulary of 17 and 18 year-olds?

Is it unreasonable to expect them to know the word trivial?

Is it an indictment on the education system that they dont, or is it just a fact of modern life?

Is knowledge, including students own language, now merely a trivial pursuit?

Michael Wood: The Domesday Project (1986) The Inquiring Mind

 

The BBC Domesday Project was a partnership between Acorn Computers, Philips, Logica and the BBC (with some funding from the European Commissions ESPRIT programme) to mark the 900th anniversary of the original Domesday Book, an 11th-century census of England. It has been cited as an example of digital obsolescence on account of the physical medium used for data storage. This new multimedia edition of Domesday was compiled between 1984 and 1986 and published in 1986. It included a new survey of the United Kingdom, in which people, mostly school children, wrote about geography, history or social issues in their local area or just about their daily lives. Children from over 9,000 schools were involved. This was linked with maps, and many colour photos, statistical data, video and virtual walks. Over 1 million people participated in the project. The project also incorporated professionally prepared video footage, virtual reality tours of major landmarks and other prepared datasets such as the 1981 census.

Paul Mertons Birth of Hollywood #2 The Inquiring Mind

Wikipedia

Paul Mertons Birth of Hollywood is a 2011 BBC documentary series written, directed and presented by Paul Merton. The three-part series traces the rise of the American film-making industry in Hollywood through from the early years of film-making to the foundation of the major motion-picture studios and the new class of the film star.

Episode one follows the rise of the American industry from its beginnings with Thomas Edison and his Motion Picture Patents Company, and looks at figures such as the Biograph girl Mary Pickford, the controversial film pioneer D.W. Griffith, the origins of Charlie Chaplin, the foundation of United Artistsand the industrys move from New York to the orange groves of Hollywood, California

Moving towards the 1920s, Merton examines how conservative American lobbyists, fresh from obtaining prohibition, now turned their attention to the unregulated film industry. Merton views this through a study of the career of the silent film star Roscoe Arbuckle and how a false accusation led to his expulsion from the industry and as an excuse for instigating film self-censorship. Meanwhile, Merton looks at the effect of the First World War and the flamboyance of directors such as Cecil B. DeMille

The rise of the Hollywood film studios in the 1930s is told through the story of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. MGMs powerful young producer, Irving Thalberg, challenged the power of the director in making films and refused to allow his own name to appear in his films credits

Gresham College: Prof. Chris Budd Mathematics and the Making of the Modern and Future World #8 Maths Goes Into Space The Inquiring Mind

A fascinating series delivered by Professor Chris Budd, CBE from Bath University

About this lecture

Many of us have been in a medical scanner and benefited from its use in medical diagnostics. But how many of us have considered how it works? The maths behind modern medical imaging (showing how CAT, MRI and Ultrasound scanners work) will be explained, showing how mathematics done in 1915 is now saving countless numbers of lives. 

Recent advances in mathematics are leading to much better images for doctors to use for their diagnoses; and similar methods and ideas are used in diverse applications such as remote sensing, oil prospecting, crime detection, studying bees and saving the whales.

https://youtu.be/prAAIFzXYF0

About the lecture series

In this lecture series by Professor Christopher Budd, the emphasis will be how mathematics gives us a glimpse into the future both of technology and of many other areas of our lives.

Since Newton, we have become used to science making confident predictions about the future, including on the motion of the planets and the times of the tides. However, some things seem very hard to predict, such as the stock market or the weather. Is this a fault in the way we model these systems, or is there a genuine limit to how far we can predict the future? One explanation comes from the theory of chaos, which explains why small changes now can lead to large uncertainty in the future. Professor Budd will describe how chaos theory works and how things can change rapidly.

Climate change is important, controversial, and the subject of huge debate. Much of our understanding of the future climate comes from the use of complex climate models, which are based on mathematical and physical ideas. Professor Budd will describe how these models work and the assumptions that go into them. He will discuss how reliable our predictions of climate change will be and show how mathematics can give us insights into both the past and the future.

One of the biggest advances in modern technology has been the development of GPS systems which allow us to find our position to very high precision. GPS is just the latest advance in the science of navigation, which has had a profound effect on human civilization. Professor Budd will show how mathematics has played a vital role in making navigation as accurate as it is today and the impact this has had on us all. Indeed, it is one of the few areas where Einsteins general theory of relativity directly impacts our lives.

About this series

Rivers are all around us, flowing from the rural to the urban and carrying with them traces of all that makes up the modern environmental conundrum that is one of the largest problems facing the UK today. From drought and floods to pollution and urbanisation, this series of lectures takes us on a journey into the heart of the environmental problems facing us all.

About this lecture

What are the odds that events will conspire to put London under water during the next few years? Are the catastrophic Summer 2007 floods in the English Midlands and the recent events of southeast England harbingers of worse to come, particularly as the climate shifts? 

Serious flooding poses major challenges to the UKs security, despite changes in the way we try to manage both water and damage.

Keeping Up Appearances The Pageant The Inquiring Mind

lousy formatting , audio OK, but could be better, and best viewed full screen. In many ways the audio is the main attraction

Wikipedia

Keeping Up Appearances is a British sitcom created and written by Roy Clarke. It aired on BBC One from 1990 to 1995. The central character is eccentric and snobbish middle class social climber Hyacinth Bucket(Patricia Routledge), who insists that her surname is pronounced Bouquet.[2]The sitcom follows Hyacinth in her attempts to prove her social superiority, and to gain standing with those she considers upper class. Her attempts are constantly hampered by her lower class extended family, whom she is desperate to hide. Much of the humour comes from the conflict between Hyacinths vision of herself, and the reality of her underclass background. In each episode, she lands in a farcical situation as she battles to protect her social credibility.

The show comprised five series and 44 episodes, four of which are Christmas specials. Production ended when star Patricia Routledge moved on to other projects

..... at the idea of investment advisers and life insurance salesmen prospecting for clients at funerals.

I vaguely remember reading of some American who turned it into such an art form people did not know they were being sounded out.  He's give them a follow up phone call a couple of weeks after the event.  Very smooth and he made a fortune but I doubt he would have got away with it for long in NZ.

Here's one fellow who did get away with in Australia, big time.  His reward was a few years in the slammer.

One of Lovells victims included a friends widow, who he approached at a funeral and solicited a $100,000 investment which he promised would yield substantial returns.

Now the Tax Office is after him for over $700k and he's crying poor.

Mind you, when you've been living high on the hog, on money taken under false pretenses, the dosh tends to run out after a while.  Four years' jail and three years' unemployment have taken their toll.

BBC Drama: Strangers and Brothers by C.P.Snow #8/13 The Inquiring Mind

Wikipedia

Strangers and Brothers is a series of novels by C. P. Snow, published between 1940 and 1970. They deal with among other things questions of political and personal integrity, and the mechanics of exercising power.

All eleven novels in the series are narrated by the character Lewis Eliot. The series follows his life and career from humble beginnings in an English provincial town, to reasonably successful London lawyer, to Cambridge don, to wartime service in Whitehall, to senior civil servant and finally retirement.

The New Men deals with the scientific communitys involvement in (and reaction to) the development and deployment of nuclear weapons during the Second World War. The Conscience of the Rich concerns a wealthy, Anglo-Jewish merchant-banking family. Time of Hope and George Passant depict the price paid by clever, poor young men to escape their provincial origins.

Snow analyses the professional world, scrutinising microscopic shifts of power within the enclosed settings of a Cambridge college, a Whitehall ministry, a law firm. For example, in the novels set in the Cambridge college (a thinly veiled Christs), a small, disparate group of men is typically required to reach a collective decision on an important subject. In The Masters, the dozen or so college members elect a new head (the Master) by majority vote. In The Affair, a small group of dons sets out to correct a possible injustice: they must convince the rest of the college to re-open an investigation into scientific fraud. In both novels, the characters strongly resist letting in the external world, whether it be the press, public opinion, the college Visitor, or outside experts.

The books were adapted by the BBC into a 13-episode television series, which began airing in January 1984. The series starred Shaughan Seymour as Lewis, Sheila Ruskin as his mentally troubled first wife Sheila and Cherie Lunghi as his second wife Margaret. Other actors of note who took part in the series include Anthony Hopkins, Nigel Havers, Peter Sallis and Tom Wilkinson.

Classic Aussie Crime Drama: Water Rats -S05 E10 The Trouble With Gary The Inquiring Mind

Season 3 Episode 5 appears to be missing

Water Rats is an Australian TV police procedural broadcast on the Nine Network from 1996 to 2001. The series was based on work of the men and women of the Sydney Water Police who fight crime around Sydney Harbour and surrounding locales. The show was set on and around Goat Island in Sydney Harbour.

Water Rats premiered on 12 February 1996, and ran for six seasons and 177 episodes. Colin Friels and Catherine McClements were the original stars of the series and were instrumental in the shows early success. They both departed the show in 1999. In later seasons, Steve Bisley, Aaron Pedersen and Dee Smart became the shows main stars.

For the sixth and final season in 2001, the show concentrated more on the cops personal lives rather than just focusing on the crimes committed. The Nine Network cancelled the show after six seasons. Executive Producer Kris Noble blamed escalating costs for the cancellation. However, Bisley and Smart had also just quit the show, and the series had already been suffering a ratings battle following the departure of Friels and McClements in 1999.

DW: New Challenges for the Bundeswehr! The Inquiring Mind

 

A UN mission involving German troops is taking place in Mali, West Africa. The German army is acting as an international military peacekeeping task force. But how can Germanys Bundeswehr master the challenges of the future? Around 1,000 women and men of the Bundeswehr are deployed as part of the UN mission in Mali. But what exactly is their task? The documentarys writers Djamila Benkhelouf, who served with the Bundeswehr herself for two years, and Nino Seidel accompanied the soldiers in Gao. They provide a multifaceted insight into everyday life, both in the camp and on patrol. Specialized personnel such as pilots, facility defense staff and explosive ordinance experts are in particularly high demand for such missions; their training can take months, sometimes years. The deficit in these specialized personnel within the German military is becoming apparent to the soldiers in Mali; deployments are becoming longer, while at the same time new missions are being added around the world. This documentary asks: how has the German military changed in recent years? It is no longer a purely defensive force that would respond only in the case of an attack on Germany. How has it been confronting the new crises and upheavals in Europe and in the wider world? Is the Bundeswehr up to this new challenge?

Paul Mertons Birth of Hollywood #1 The Inquiring Mind

Wikipedia

Paul Mertons Birth of Hollywood is a 2011 BBC documentary series written, directed and presented by Paul Merton. The three-part series traces the rise of the American film-making industry in Hollywood through from the early years of film-making to the foundation of the major motion-picture studios and the new class of the film star.

Episode one follows the rise of the American industry from its beginnings with Thomas Edison and his Motion Picture Patents Company, and looks at figures such as the Biograph girl Mary Pickford, the controversial film pioneer D.W. Griffith, the origins of Charlie Chaplin, the foundation of United Artistsand the industrys move from New York to the orange groves of Hollywood, California

Moving towards the 1920s, Merton examines how conservative American lobbyists, fresh from obtaining prohibition, now turned their attention to the unregulated film industry. Merton views this through a study of the career of the silent film star Roscoe Arbuckle and how a false accusation led to his expulsion from the industry and as an excuse for instigating film self-censorship. Meanwhile, Merton looks at the effect of the First World War and the flamboyance of directors such as Cecil B. DeMille

The rise of the Hollywood film studios in the 1930s is told through the story of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. MGMs powerful young producer, Irving Thalberg, challenged the power of the director in making films and refused to allow his own name to appear in his films credits

Gresham College: Prof. Carolyn Roberts Britain In Troubled Waters #1- A body in the River The Inquiring Mind

About this series

Rivers are all around us, flowing from the rural to the urban and carrying with them traces of all that makes up the modern environmental conundrum that is one of the largest problems facing the UK today. From drought and floods to pollution and urbanisation, this series of lectures takes us on a journey into the heart of the environmental problems facing us all.

 

About this lecture

The bodies of murder victims, whole or in pieces, often end up in rivers or canals. Carolyn Roberts work as an Expert Witness with UK police forces has applied the principles of hydrology to murder investigations.

In these tragic and gruesome settings, environmental science can help to identify where bodies have come from or gone to. Drawing on macabre and fascinating case studies, the lecture will range from particular cases to general principles of tracing bodies, and the application of science in supporting the law.

Probably not for those of a nervous disposition, but of guaranteed interest to the curious.
