An explanation to the 'weird' negotiations to sever the UK from the EU human rights legislation; all smoke and mirrors to take the attention away from the TTIP talks/implications. And Cameron would, in the best British literary tradition, be cast as "a sort of bored viceroy engaged in the handover of power from government to corporations. He has a detailed idea of what life will be like 10 years down the line, when sovereignty is subordinated to corporate courts. He probably feels that, in context, we are churlish to get upset at this colourful, Lannisterish little government he has got together for the handover".
The prime minister has successfully pursued an agenda more radical than Thatcher’s – and has managed it without anybody being terribly worried by him

Can't see the round hole anywhere -  presumably the pegs here are so numerous  that the holes will adapt to fit retrospectively......  
Dutch artists Lernert and Sander have created a new art piece which involves 98 perfectly cubed pieces of raw food. The 2.5 x 2.5 x 2.5 cm cubes are made from a myriad of food types, including kiwi, salmon, cabbage, mushroom, and much more.

Take a look at some close ups below to see the extreme detail they w...

Unusual 'mixed media' strategy, or the lowish tech version of digital  piggy backing, a www distribution model for non connected areas.
Only about 5 of people in Cuba have access to the Internet. Elaine Diaz has a creative news distribution strategy: "direct to packet."

They mainly reviews brands distributed in the US, but many likely suspects are also available in the EU, so check to see if you are chucking out the cash and what to look out for in sun protection before summer. 
80% of U.S. sun protection products analyzed by EWG contain harmful ingredients or offer inadequate protection against dangerous ultraviolet radiation -- or both.

"Monsanto's herbicide glyphosate -- trade name RoundUp -- which is used on most genetically engineered crops (also known as GMOs), is sparking new and serious concern, not just among GMO opponents but among health and environment experts globally." Immediate bans implemented  by several governments, including Germany and Columbia. 

17 experts from  the international agency for research on cancer, IARC, part of the world health  organisation, has re-classified  glyphosate to " probably carcinogenic", and this  based on sound multidisciplinary scientific analysis. By comparison the  advisors to the US and EU agricultura &l heath legislators  relied on a narrow scientific approach when testing the chemicals prior to it's release.

Vertical city farms and floating cities = becoming feasible and almost mainstream, or at least shortly downstream. Under city Mirror Cities = vintage scify concept seemingly back in the realm of the feasible,  at least according to the British man in the street surveyed on likely hood of futuristic visions by experts.  
To promote its new series Impossible Engineering, television channel Yesterday asked four architecture and engineering experts to draw up a list of predictions about the future landscape of London and the UK, before asking 2,000 people which they think are most likely to become reality within the next 100 years. The top three were then turned into computer-generated renders, showing us the potential prospects of the country. Voted the most likely...
