"Significant strides were made in the world of international emoji understanding this week, with the publication of a groundbreaking report. Swiftkey, a British software company, trawled through “more than 1bn pieces of emoji data” to extract some enlightening trends in global emoji use across speakers of 16 different languages.

While the world is still processing the findings, many Canadians are expected to react by texting each other smiling piles of poop. I don’t mean to besmear Canada; it got itself into this situation. According to the Swiftkey report, Canada uses the “smiling poop” emoji more than any of the other countries that were surveyed. It appears to be the visual equivalent of “eh” for the digital-savvy Canuck."

"Britain is a nation of winkers. While Australia leads the emoji world in drinking, Britain stands out for its use of winking. Apparently, Brits use the winking face at twice the average rate. I’m not entirely sure to what make of this somewhat dubious distinction, so it seems fitting to leave thelast words to Monty Python: wink, wink, nudge, nudge, say no more."

THAT'S NOT NATURAL!
Is a human building a dam 'natural'? What if it's a Beaver?
"It seems that getting end-of-life patients and their families to endorse “do not resuscitate” orders has been challenging. To many ears, “D.N.R.” sounds a little too much like throwing Grandpa under the bus. Butaccording to a paper in The Journal of Medical Ethics, when the orders are reworded to say “allow natural death,” patients and family members and even medical professionals are much more likely to give their consent to what amounts to exactly the same protocols."

"Implicit here is the idea that nature is a repository of abiding moral and ethical values — and that we can say with confidence exactly what those values are. Philosophers often call this the “naturalistic fallacy”: the idea that whatever is (in nature) is what ought to be (in human behavior). But if nature offers a moral standard by which we can measure ourselves, and a set of values to which we should aspire, exactly what sort of values are they? Are they the brutally competitive values of “nature, red in tooth and claw,” in which every individual is out for him- or herself? Or are they the values of cooperation on display in a beehive or ant colony, where the interests of the community trump those of the individual? Opponents of same-sex marriage can find examples of monogamy in the animal kingdom, and yet to do so they need to look past equally compelling examples of animal polygamy as well as increasing evidence of apparent animal homosexuality. And let’s not overlook the dismaying rates of what looks very much like rape in the animal kingdom, or infanticide, or the apparent sadism of your average house cat."

The F.D.A. states on its website that “it is difficult to define a food product as ‘natural’ because the food has probably been processed and is no longer the product of the earth,” suggesting that the industry might not want to press the point too hard, lest it discover that nothing it sells is natural.
Whether we’re talking about food, politics or morality, we can’t agree on a definition.

It might seem a little strange to review a place like this, and to give it 5 stars, but I was seriously impressed when visiting to take my Driving Theory Test. Very well organised and the security is so tight! Tighter than any airport I've been through; lockers for all belongings, you can't take anything into the testing rooms (not even water/chewing gum) for fear of cheating. You're assigned a testing terminal in a room watched over by an employee; there's no cheating done here for sure! At the terminal you're given a hand wipe and even earplugs if the sound of other people is a distraction. I actually loved it and the sanitised, secure environment helped me focus on the test (which I passed nicely)!

Badly, badly dated in every aspect. Akin to the Overlook Hotel from The Shining, even the staff seem to come from the 60s. The box seats aren't much of an advantage, in fact the rear row of seats provide a poor view.

Pro: Surprisingly good breakfast, swimming pool is nice, having children's fun park in the hotel grounds is convenient and good fun, a nice way to end each day. Bad: Room was not ready on arrival (old wet towels, hair in bathroom, beds without sheets, no bin, ashtray on terrace full) took many requests (3/4) to fix. No WiFi for entire stay. Toilet smell when using swimming pool. Electrocution from bathroom plug located next to light switch! Often no hot water on old fashioned shower. Air conditioning often stopped working. Due to outside entertainment in park, often noisy until midnight.

An unusual place to review perhaps, but my grandmother is here and whilst being in a home isn't 'nice', this place... is. Not her first home I'm able to compare to the previous homes she's been in and this one is vastly superior. There room, space for the 'guests' to move through the wide corridors to the main lounge room and also a garden (all of this on the ground floor) for them to visit should the weather be ok. The main thing that makes me rate this place highly is the staff. Compared to the poor attention I've seen given out previously, here the staff are like angels. They're great with visitors and most importantly with the residents, treating them fairly, not as patients but as real people who simply require assistance. I've been there at visiting times and also meal times when I've seen that all the staff there treat all the residents as individuals even under very trying circumstances. A thank you to them.

Woo! Rock! ...in Surrey! Whilst this place might be 'authentic', serving up something those into rock/metal/whatever might like, it's hardly a nice place, but hey.. that makes it more real. The dirt is real here, yeah man. I've been here for gigs and comedy shows in their backroom and well, the entertainment could have been anyone, but I was still happy to go home on all occasions. It's pretty grimy and cramped (keep it real) but what really gets me is that this place (principally a place that serves drinks to punters) has awful bogs that stink, look like they've never been cleaned and don't have soap. It's very rock and roll and should you enjoy the idea of a sweaty, dirty night soaking up other sweat and possibly other fluids, this is the place for you! Real... but take hand sanitiser with you.

Cheap.. and tastes it sadly. In the area on a day out we decided upon this pub, situated on the river to have lunch. They have a 'day saver menu' where you can choose from a whole host of meals costing only £2.95! Wow! That's excellent value and I was excited to be saving such money up in London. Then the food came. The Fish and Chips had a fish so solid it was a challenge to slice; the Spaghetti Bolognese looks like something from a microwave meal and the 'meat' was avoided; the vegetarian option I chose was 3 vegetable samosas 'rock hard and probably from frozen' with chips (unusual, a change from the usual vegetable lasagne I suppose). You might say 'what can you expect for such low prices' but if a place serves such 'food' then they'll get such a review and these customers not returning. Food aside, the location was fine enough, table outside which overlooked some of the uglier parts of the Thames (not their fault of course) though you can see the O2 and the Dangleway nicely. Inside, it was fine but seemed like being on a set from some 1980s show; an impression confirmed when visiting the toilets (nice and clear) but with various bits of 'glam' decoration littered about the urinal and a host of deos and aftershaves to choose from; the lads might like it on a night out perhaps.
