But to some extent, search algorithms like Google’s do just that giving extra weight to websites that are popular, and so presumably more trustworthy.It got me thinking about my own articles on the LHC, particularly the reader reaction to the mere mention of the black hole conspiracies. Most of the reaction from science savvy readers can be summed up as “why on Earth are you giving these theories the time of day?”One answer is that, in the course of an average week, I get asked about the LHC about a dozen times, and in each case, they are asking: “Is the world coming to an end?” I’m not talking about scientists here, but rather everyday people who stopped taking science after high school: my wife, my in laws, the person who cuts my hair, old university friends . In each case, I patiently explain what I know, based on my own research and the words from scientists working in the field.
Ten years or so ago the BBC wouldn’t have dreamed of farming out a documentary about a year in the life of the Queen to an independent best known for such seminal works as Wife Swap. There’d have been a producer like Eddie Mirzoeff, a cameraman like Philip Bonham Carter, and an immensely ponderous production process. The thing would have lumbered on through endless meetings with royal liaison people, aspired to a secret screening with a lady in waiting or two, and been generally badly up itself.
When Prohibition was repealed in 1933, the market for moonshine grew thin. Large commercial distilleries can buy raw materials on such a large scale that, even with the taxes they must pay, their products aren’t too much more expensive than moonshine. While some counties in the south and midwest United States remained “dry” (alcohol free) for decades after the end of national Prohibition, even those localized liquor bans have, for the most part, faded away..
Just drop here to say you Americans are so naive to hire such a jerk as this Piers Morgan. Because your so little involved internationally you dont know his ridiculous past in Britain, the how dumb he looked in many host shows, as showed by brit presenters Ian Hislop and Paul Merton, among others, and how stupid he looked in American Idol, in sharp contrast with the great Simon Cowell. But thats America, the only place a guy like that could be worshipped..
It’s like the journalists decide they are going to hate someone and present them badly even if they do nothing but charity work. Although I do aggree Ms Mills can seem a little charmless sometimes I think the papesr are just snidey and make themsleves look shabby by picking apart relatively inoffensive celebrities like these two. Leave them alone..
