A good illustration of how much more advanced this Spring was than last - left is April 2013, right is March 2014 - this year's Magnolia flowers are a month earlier

Is Yahoo's move the first of many?
This morning's story in the Guardian about Yahoo's decision to move its European headquarters to Ireland is I think very significant. According to the Guardian, Home Secretary Theresa May summoned the company to a meeting to express the concerns of Scotland...

A new employer-employee compact
The old "job for life" certainties have gone but the laissez-faire approach which has replaced them is neither good for companies, nor good for employees argue Reid Hoffman, Ben Casnocha and Chris Yeh in the Harvard Business Review . For most of the 20th ce...

Making hay while the snow melts
Three articles in this morning's Observer illustrate perfectly the paradoxes surrounding the climate change debate.  First we had this piece on England's wettest January for 250 years. The culprit is identified as global warming: Flooding  has been identifi...

Most world civilizations -- Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Spanish, Ottoman, British --  have got to a point near the end where they faced an internal battle between doing things differently or getting back to the "core values"  that once made them great. Most chose the latter and eventually imploded. Wonder if we're seeing the same conflict in the current US-led era, with climate change just one of the battlegrounds?

I've spent the past couple of hours going through my feed reader catching up on all the stories I've missed over the past week or so and I was struck by the enormous number and inventiveness of the new apps and hardware being reported on. It strikes me ther...

To Glass or not to Glass
It seems as if Google Glass has travelled quite a long way along its hype cycle even though it has yet to be launched as a finished product. The product was shown initially at the I/O conference in June 2012 and the first beta products (knows as the Explore...

Sharing health data - safely
In principle I think this is a great idea. Big data is transforming industry after industry as well as scientific enquiry and bringing this power to bear on the health of the nation is a noble goal. Unfortunately, the implementation of the scheme was a disa...

Excellent cafe with home-cooked food and plenty of vegetarian options. Superb location on top of the cliffs at Overstrand. Seating inside and out. Very dog friendly. Well worth a visit.

Good, no-nonsense seaside bar serving real ale (Adnams usually). Plenty of seating inside and out and a good, basic and good-value menu (featuring lots of chips). Food and drink all hours - very convenient. Much better since the smoking ban (aren't they all). Slightly irritating piped music even outside.

Excellent value friendly cafe with slightly eccentric opening hours in this busy Norfolk market town. Quite cosy, so it can be difficult to seat a large family!
