Community service, Lindsay Lohan-style: selfies with the fans or trips to the Chiltern Firehouse with some workies 29.1.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
The troubled actor has had to find inventive ways of completing her 240 hours of community service in London. Not half as inventive, however, as her definition of what constitutes punishment • Tornado the Gladiator’s autobiography will be literary gold Today, Lost in Showbiz finds itself wrestling with legal matters. It hastens to add that these legal matters do not concern Lost in Showbiz itself. For once, its week has passed without incident. No noisome conversation involving a policeman keen to know how it came by that much diazepam without a prescription. No altercation outside the local Co-Op with a store detective, quick to cast aspersions about how a half-litre bottle of budget vodka and a copy of OK! magazine found their way into the folds of Lost in Showbiz’s fashionably voluminous coat, yet unwilling to listen to the mitigating circumstances: “These are my essential work supplies – I’m physically unable to read the latter without first drinking the former as quickly as possible.” No, this week, ...

Let GM mosquitoes loose to bite and help cure tropical diseases - researchers 26.1.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
  • British biotech firm awaiting FDA approval to release bugs in the Florida Keys
  • Change.org petition gets more than 130,000 signatures to stop experiment

Millions of genetically modified mosquitoes could be released in the Florida Keys if British researchers win approval to use the bugs against two extremely painful viral diseases. Never before have insects with modified DNA come so close to being set loose in a residential US neighbourhood.

Cold comforts 18.1.2015 Deccan Herald - Opinion
I started the New Year sneezing. Hardly remarkable! Twelve months ago, I stepped - stumbled, rather - into 2014 with chikungunya. Compared with that agonising ailment, a running nose was a minor matter. Regardless, however, of my resolution to sniffle in silence, I grumbled loud and long. In company with fellow sufferers, I blamed the villain generally held responsible for respiratory disorders - the weather. Since Bengaluru was unpleasantly chilly, what else could I do but fall ill? Urged to keep warm, I heeded that advice. Ensconced in my cosy home, I exemplified the simile, 'as snug as a bug in a rug!' To 'make assurance double sure', like Shakespeare's Macbeth, I unearthed protective gear in the form of Fluffy.
