Great to see two sides of the debate on consciousness.

A neuroscientist puts his view forward and then the philosophers bundle in in the comments section...
 
Consciousness, awareness, qualia, mind -- call it what you will -- it is the subtle distinction between merely computing information and feeling. #neuroscience #mind #consciousness

Hi guys!

I'm the marketing manager for getrevising.co.uk and I'd just like to announce our brand new FREE Study Planner.

It allows students to add deadlines, manage their homework and revision. They can also prioritise tough subjects.

Anyway, we're really proud of it so let me know what you think :)
Study Planner. Never miss a deadline again. Tell us when your work is due and when you're free to study, and we'll plan out your revision time. With the study planner you can prioritise tough subjects, get resource recommendations and receive notifications for when you need to start working ...

I thought the community was about education technology in general, apologies.

Really friendly staff and great food. We ordered from the set menu: I had coconut soup and Thai curry. Both were great, but the soup in particular was really tasty. Definitely recommend

We've had a couple of great meals here , but the last few have been pretty awful. Just went for a Sunday Roast and the meal was cold, the beef was tough and the vegetables were unseasoned/bland--and it cost £12! Not impressed. Also, I can't say for sure, but the Yorkshire puddings tasted and looked an awful lot like Aunt Bessies... For drinks this place is great, but really can't recommend the food anymore.

Awesome pub in central London. Cheapest pints around and really cool, old interior

Cool small pub just by the station. The beer is really good, and it has an interesting atmosphere. Only negative point is the musician when we went: he was pretty terrible, although I'm guessing some people probably enjoyed it. Worth a shot for the beer alone

Good curry house on Drummond Street. The curries are pretty tasty--I would've given them a 'very good' if it weren't for the small portions. People that find curry house portions a bit overwhelming might like it though :)

Great Japanese food, pretty similar price to Wagamamas. The service is terrible though--they act as if it's a hassle to have you there. I kind of love it though

Amazing, massive sandwiches for pretty cheap. Tends to be about £2.50-£3.50, made with fresh bread and generous fillings. The only issue is that there tends to be a big queue because their food is that good :)
