That is a good article which contrasts with the sloppy one he was responding to. I have been proselytising this guy's research since I heard about it in the late eighties. Bowlers and coaches, sadly, like to treat swing bowling as some sort of mystical power, and so only criticise the science.

If I ever have to hear about the lack of cloud cover as an excuse for not having the skill to bowl at the right speed..... [grrrr]

Reminder that there is an International Men's Day and the only time men care about it is on International Women's Day. See Richard Herring's Twitter stream (@Herring1967) for much depressing evidence.

Might as well toss a coin for the time being.
Merger or extra matter? Two papers come to opposite conclusions.

+Glen Thomas I presume you or others will be viewing this at the College? I hadn't realised we were getting about 86% down here. Can you remember what we had back in 1999?

Why the hell is this idiot on the  Science and Technology Select Committee? He may have been born in Worthing but I'm relieved he's not my MP. Plank.

He claims to have been an officer in the Grenadier Guards for three years, serving in NI and Germany. But he was only in the University Officer Training Corps studying for his BLitt. I wonder where he got his belief that homoeopathy can cure HIV, tuberculosis, malaria, diabetes and cancer, and that blood doesn't clot during a full Moon?

He also claims that scientists are racially biased, and was caught taking a bung on camera. The handing back of unnecessary expenses is just the icing on the pathetic cake.
