Excellent articles this week in New Scientist, topical this is the week are the current problems in Greece, and what the effects are. A sobering article, but well worth the read. “Financial collapse has left Greece facing a humanitarian disaster”, “Political unrest in Greece has grown as more people are forced to rely on handouts to survive”, “The system is at it’s limit. Every day we see more and more people asking for help” and “How should Greece prioritise spending?”
As well as Greece, other articles include: ‘Challenging Einsteins theory’ , ‘Gastric bypass cuts desire for drink’, ‘Impossible material will shrink when stretched’ and ‘seabed bugs challenge what it means to be alive’ – An eclectic mix!
