In Sweden a mandatory helmet law for children on bikes has had no effect on the level of injuries, but has had an effect on the number of children cycling.

So the net health effect has been negative.

Also the relative number of head injuries among children walking or travelling by car is similar to cycling ; why has no one proposed laws for mandatory helmet wearing for children walking or being driven in cars? 
In 2005 Sweden introduced a helmet law for cycling children. Mandatory helmet laws have been controversial in that they seem to have a limited effect on the number of head injuries, if at all, but instead are correlated with a decrease in cycling numbers. Guest writer Erik Sandblom takes a look ...

Odd how this was illustrated with a photo of people cycling in the UK.

So let's try to understand; three years ago, Western and Gulf money was heavily arming the anti-Assad insurrection. Just three years later, Western authorities will arrest you if you plan or help someone go to Syria and fight against Assad.

The moral bankruptcy of Western leaders is so total, that they can survive only by keeping people ignorant.
Today the Guardian in its trademark handwringing fashion is marking the fourth anniversary of the Syrian conflict: 200,000 dead, 3.5 million refugees.   The Guardian should also commemorate three and a half years of bloods...

The monster we have created and the allure it has to many Muslims around the world.
The Islamic State is no mere collection of psychopaths. It is a religious group with carefully considered beliefs, among them that it is a key agent of the coming apocalypse. Here’s what that means for its strategy—and for how to stop it.

If anything, Britain is more corrupt now than 30 years ago; which makes you wonder just how much abhorrent stuff is happening now that we don't know about.
An investigation into alleged corruption in the Met Police will examine claims it covered up child sex offences involving police officers and MPs.

Our logic reflects the architecture of our brains. For example: if a then b, if b then c, therefore if a then c. That makes sense to us because of the structure of our neural network. If our network were built differently then our logic would be different, just like a lot of euclidean geometry doesn't work in a curved world. Wouldn't it be a good idea then to develop artificial brains with a different architecture? In a way, that is what big data intelligence achieves: insights not provided by a few stimuli, but by statistical inferences from millions of data points.

+David Hembrow I agree with what you say, but the logic of building a strong bridge and a strong body are different. We build a bridge as strong as we can and we try and avoid it being under stress or we reinforce a priori the parts that will be coming under stress. With a body, we use stress to make it stronger. Now, the question is whether the difference is because of the different architecture of the system, or the different position "we" have within the system.

Can't resist a good bit of Apple bashing:
When I look at the Apple Watch, I’m not seeing an empathetic creation for the masses. I’m seeing what the New Yorker’s more than 16,000-word story on Jonathan Ive would only hint at—that Apple may have built out the watch to satisfy the urges of a designer who has become more obsessed with Bentleys and Rolexes than making attractive, functional technology that will actually make life better for the 99%.
A health monitor with a battery life of few hours (meaning that for many hours it can't record, because it is charging). What?
I'm just saying what a lot of people are thinking.

They will soon be programmed to learn how to kick back.
And what else will they  learn?
The scary thing is that +Demis Hassabis will not disclose who is on Google's Ethics Committee.
