Thought for the month

“You cannot have freedom without a rule of law ... and if you don't have it, what you tend to get is corruption and that is death to freedom, it's death to truth, it's death to honour, it's death to democracy.”

Margaret Thatcher, 1 October 1996.

Rubber dub - tweet, tweet

A simple rubber device that replicates complex bird songs has been developed by a team of US researchers.
The song is produced by blowing air through the device, which mimics a bird's vocal tract, the team explained.
The findings appear to challenge the idea that birds had to learn complicated neurological controls in order to produce distinctive calls.
