The Independent: Louisiana floods destroy home of Christian leader who says God sends natural disasters to punish gay people. http://google.com/newsstand/s/CBIw_LLjmC0
A flood has destroyed the home of a Christian lobbyist who preached that God sends natural disasters to punish gays. President of the controversial Christian group Family Research Council, Tony Perkins, described a deluge of “near biblical proportions” hitting his Louisiana home. During a broadcast on the group’s radio station, he told how he and his family had fled in a canoe.

Those who want to leave the EU refuse to make the most crushing argument against it. Here's why. By George Monbiot, published in the Guardian 22nd June 2016. Do the Leave campaigners care about the misuse of public money? No. How do I know? Because they have scarcely mentioned the European ...

Story
Introduction
I live in Nottingham. 

I like biking with my dog, Yoshinkan Aikido, eating, cooking, reading, movies and thinking about eating.  I like gardening too, and I run an allotment.  Environmental concerns are important to me.  

I'm interested in anything interesting, such as green tech, future uses of technology, philosophy, literature, political ideas, and general trivia.  Recently my reading has tended towards SF and speculative fiction as well as leftist political books and blogs.   I listen to lots of garage/punk type music, but generally I like anything that's good.
Bragging rights
I know that I am a good person because I pick up other people's dog turds.

We tried this restaurant on a quiet Sunday and were impressed by the quality of food and service. Delicious food at a good price. We'll be going back.

Excellent place to train. I also attend the classes at Sneinton, and that is a larger venue. When I can I go to the Saturday adults' classes at Leinton and the experience is just as good.

We're fairly regular customers here. The staff is friendly and polite and their food is tasty. Pretty much what you'd hope for in a takeaway.

I came to Aikido Shoshinkan as a complete beginner and was made to feel welcome immediately. One of the things which might put people off learning a martial art is a macho attitude from more experienced students, but I'm happy to report that I have never experienced anything like that at Shoshinkan. The club is remarkably inclusive - as is aikido more generally - and makes a point of being suitable for all ages, abilities, genders and body types. Your size and strength are not important here; what matters is your mental approach and attitude to learning with an open mind. If you're just looking to get strong and batter a punch bag this probably is not for you. I would urge anyone who is 'sitting on the fence' trying to muster the courage to try something new and challenging to come and at least say hello and talk to some of the students and Tadashi Sensei, our instructor. You will not be put under any pressure to sign a contract or hand over money, but you may well be intrigued by this graceful, challenging art taught by an excellent teacher with friendly, committed students.

One of the best pubs around here. Always a wide range of well kept beers. The burgers are good too. I've been to a couple of band nights and the venue works well for music as well.

I've been here a few times and the food is always good. I particularly like the dragon roll sushi and the Bonzai Bento Box. Prices are OK; it's not a cheap place to eat, but it's not overpriced either and the quality is good.
