TOP SCOOPS


Keith Rankin: Diseases Both Economic And Biologic

- Although it no longer dominates the news in this country, Britain's foot and mouth epidemic continues to rage and many thousands of healthy animals continue to be slaughtered. Further, we are told that the introduction of foot and mouth disease into New Zealand, through malice or carelessness, would be tantamount to economic treason. See... Keith Rankin: Political Economy of Foot and Mouth [1]

Paranoia, Abuse & The Shifting Culture Of Teaching

- Public anxiety about child sexual abuse has led to a shift in the relationship between children and their teachers. Although the incidence of teachers abusing children in their care is rare, one or two highly publicised cases have had far-reaching consequences for teachers, and generated much confusion and worry amongst teachers, parents and children. See... Touchy Subject [1]

Lindsay Perigo: Jesus Got Nothing On Me

- Today's being the last show before the Easter break, I thought I'd do a sequel to my chat to God the other day - a retake of the Sermon on the Mount, since here too, I figure I can improve on the original. See... Lindsay Perigo: A (Revised) Sermon From The Mount [1]

Few sights are sadder in international diplomacy than seeing an aging figure desperate for honours. In a desperate effort to net them, he scurries around, cultivating, prodding, wishing to be noted.

Ramzy Baroud: Being Black Palestinian - Solidarity As A Welcome Pathology
