Stop Testing on Monkeys

I ask that the Regents immediately take action to stop the unethical and scientifically unnecessary use of nonhuman primates in experiments at University of California campuses and laboratories. Animal experimentation fails to hold the promise of new technologies, including nanotechnology, microfluidic methods, stem cell research and personalized medicine; or to yield the comprehensive results of well-established research protocols such as clinical and epidemiological studies.  Ethically, animal

SAVE THE LONDON BBC TAMIL BROADCAST

The BBC has decided to close down its popular Tamil Language Broadcast  “ThamilOsai” from London  and transfer the entire operation to New Delhi, early in 2015, after serving for nearly 74 years,  arguing that they do not have funds to continue the service from London. This fails to take account of the need of the Tamil Service to guide the English sections of BBC like the BBC TV and BBC online and more importantly to provide independent and better focus to their Sri Lanka coverage without getti

Say no to alcohol next to Southern Cross Campus

In their stupidity, the goons at the Auckland District Licensing Committee have approved a new liquor shop directly opposite a large South Auckland school – the Southern Cross Campus. They approved it despite huge opposition from the community, the school, central and local-body politicians, the Medical Officer of Health and various community groups. The Campus educates pupils from year 1-13 – more than 1500 students attend the school. The new Thirsty Liquor shop will be directly opposite the sc
