HVG New Year Statement on Humanist Vegetarians

I have been in some correspondence with Roz of the Vegan Society with regard to my personal statement for Marilyn Mason in the HVG New Year Newsletter (see thread). We have discussed an addition which she would like to see: Quote: "The most important thing to me is getting the evolutionary perspecti...

Re: Modern economics

Yes. the Times article is on the right lines to someone like me who taught about "rational expectations" and "efficient market hypothesis" with a great deal of critical scepticism in the 80s and early 90s, before retirement. I was always sceptical about the application of mathematics to human behavi...

Re: Modern economics

(second attempt ---- the first one disappeared somewhere) Good points on the comparisons with Economics as a science. Another I suggest is medical science or at least some aspects, especially psychology and psychiatry where the investigations, experiments, observations and scientific models greatly ...

Re: Modern economics

I suggest an illuminating comparison could be made between the problems (eg. range of variables, data reliability, forecasting, behaviour predictability, making repeatable experiments, and so on) ------- of the science of Economics and the science of Meterology.

Re: Bubble and Squeak

We have now tried several of the Sundar tinned curries from Morrisons and found them to be OK for us. We will be getting more.

Ritual Slaughter Campaign

From the BHA bulletin "Join the BHA’s campaign against ritual slaughter in the UK The regulation of methods of slaughter of animals for food is predicated on a public policy of minimising the suffering of animals – slaughtering should be humane and cause the least suffering and pain possible.

Re: Will Time Travel Ever Be Possible?

There once was a lady named Bright
Who travelled faster than light
She set off one day in a relative way
And returned on the previous night!

Re: Will Time Travel Ever Be Possible?

Travelling from A to B at near the speed of light and then returning to A is not time travel in the 'widely accepted' sense. What supposedly happens is that you return to A to find less time has elapsed than you spent on the journey due to time passing at different speeds but it is still later than ...

Re: Diet information and advice section

Hello caira111 and welcome. I hope your support for this idea bears fruit (no pun intended) and recipes are served up here. If they are I will see if we can make it a 'sticky' permanent section. Unfortunately I am unlikely to offer recipes myself, as some will know we largely live on tinned, chilled...

Re: Bubble and Squeak

AlanC ----- I suspect you mean 'fair trade' not 'free trade'? We only have a couple of very small local co-ops, not very good range for veggies and so much dearer here than the major supermarkets, which is a pity as we are co-op members and long-term supporters of the co-op movement. Unexpectedly, i...

Re: Bubble and Squeak

Sainsbury's have replied to my email (at length) to say tinned B&S is no longer available. It is not entirely clear if they mean available to them or from them but I suspect the latter as they wish me luck in my search for it, which implies it still exists ----- and like the truth it 'is out there'....

Re: Bubble and Squeak

Despite a couple of spelling errors I consider I chose my words carefully enough for a posting simply seeking info on availability of tinned bubble and squeak! Any 'hostility' might be 'in the eye of the beholder'? The best point made so far is 'Of course it is not a shame at all - it is a different...

AlanC I guessed someone might respond in this way and I might have guessed it would be you! 1. We happen to like the tinned B&S we used to get ---- very tasty, easy to cook and add to 2. We tend not to have appropriate left-overs given the way in which I, as carer, organise the cooking --- frozen or...

Bubble and Squeek

We used to buy (not long ago) tinned bubble and squeek in major local supermarkets but have not been able to find it recently. Any ideas on who produces it, apart from aunt Bessie's frozen version?

Re: Vegetarianism and the NHS

Have you been reading the emails about a veggie who works for a restaurant and who in effect cannot eat there herself because their idea for a 'vegetarian soup' for example is one with meat cooked in it and then the meat taken out, so the soup can be shown on the menu as 'vegetarian'? I wonder to wh...
