In China, a single plague death means an entire city quarantined 25.7.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Tens of thousands of people were trapped in Yumen when officials swiftly locked down the city after a man died of plague, highlighting China's severe approach to the threat from disease How pandemics spread video The decision by Chinese authorities to quarantine parts of Yumen city after a local man died of the bubonic plague made headlines around the world. While four people were also diagnosed with the disease in Colorado this week all were treated in hospital and quickly released the 38-year-old Chinese farmers death brought a far more dramatic response from Yumens authorities. On Tuesday, when authorities still had whole swaths of the city in lockdown, the state broadcaster China Central Television (CCTV) reported from the scene. The reporter, wearing a face mask , stood in front of a roadblock guarded by two uniformed police officers, also wearing face masks. They had laid down orange traffic cones and tyre-puncture spike strips. The camera panned over warehouses stocked with rice, cooking oil ...

Open thread: if Tomorrow's World came back, what should it be like? 25.7.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page

Former presenter Maggie Philbin thinks the BBC should revive its popular science show, but how?

The BBC cancelled its popular science show Tomorrow's World in 2003 after 38 years, but every so often, there are calls to bring it back.

Rose-tinted nostalgia, or a recognition that there's a science and technology-shaped gap on primetime television here in the UK? Former presenter Maggie Philbin is the latest to call for a revival for the latter reason.

Great British Bake Off gets a spin-off show do you have the appetite for it? 25.7.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Jo Brand will host The Great British Bake Off An Extra Slice when the show moves to BBC1 next month. But, from The Apprentice to X Factor, what do these programmes actually add? There are many reasons to be excited about the return of The Great British Bake Off next month. The mouthwatering cakes. The amiable bonhomie. The fact that you can refer to soggy bottoms again without people thinking that you're a diarrhoea fetishist. However, The Great British Bake Off An Extra Slice is not one of them. This year, for the first time ever, Bake Off is getting its very own spin-off BBC2 show, to be hosted by Jo Brand. In it, former contestants and a handful of minor celebrities will gather together to essentially watch clips of what we all just saw on BBC1 a minute before. However, being a spin-off show, the clips are bound to be irreverent by which I mean they might have a tinpot sproingy sound effect clumsily bolted on to it somewhere and that's about ...

'Extreme solar storm' could have pulled the plug on Earth 25.7.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Satellites, power and water supplies would have been hit if billion-ton plasma cloud had erupted from sun a week earlier

The date of 23 July 2012 could have been the day the lights went out, along with suddenly not-so-smart phones, computers, satellite transmissions, GPS navigation systems, televisions, radio broadcasts, hospital equipment, electric pumps and water supplies.

On that day an "extreme solar storm" did its best to end life on Earth as we know it. The sun forced out one of the biggest plasma clouds ever detected at a speed of 3,000km per second, more than four times faster than a typical solar eruption. Fortunately it missed.

Why the Shiv Sena won't say sorry 25.7.2014 Rediff: Columns
For it's not the Sena alone that indulges in hooliganism. 'Thokshahi', as the Sena proudly calls it, is the hallmark of the party and of its offshoots. But other parties haven't exactly been models of good behaviour. Not just Maharashtra, ministers and MLAs slapping officials everywhere in the country is not unheard of, says Jyoti Punwani.

The Secret Life of Students review: where were the intrigue and fireworks? 25.7.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
This documentary gave us a gentle slant on the lives of a group of first years at university. But it promised more than it delivered You can see the thinking behind the oddly unsatisfying documentary series The Secret Life of Students (Channel 4), which came to a close on Thursday night. Since Ibiza Uncovered first dumped drunk teenagers away from home on our screens in 1997, young adults going wild has become a reality staple. BBC3 sent kids on holiday and then sent their parents to spy on them in Sun, Sex and Suspicious Parents . Channel 4 gave the format a more late-night spin recently with What Happens in Sunny Beach and Kavos , and offered up the fictional version of life in halls, Fresh Meat . (Vod's presentation on Salman Rushdie "I thought, no, I'm not having that" deserves an A for being one of the funniest-ever scenes in a very funny show.) In theory, then, spending four episodes with a group of first years at Leicester University should have made for more enticing TV. There was so much to ...

Fifty Shades of Grey trailer provokes attack from US moral watchdogs 25.7.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Morality in Media criticises trailer for 'cultivating rape culture' while Parents Television Council calls for action against morning broadcasters for airing adult content Stuart Heritage reviews the trailer Moral watchdogs in the US have launched a furious attack on the debut trailer for much-hyped erotic romance Fifty Shades of Grey, arguing that the film normalises sexual violence. Morality in Media said the movie cultivated a rape culture which was now permeating US society. "With the popularity of this book, mainstream opinion-makers (like Oprah, the Today Show and Broadway) are telling the public (especially youth) that humiliation, degradation and torture in sex is normal and to just give it a try," said the Washington-based group. The anti-pornography organisation described the film's central figure, Jamie Dornan's Christian Grey as a "stalker and batterer". It said in a statement : "Is this really the kind of relationship we want our daughters, relatives and friends willingly entering into? Do ...
