“Scientists are routinely cherry-picking and, in some cases, altering the results of clinical studies to present the findings they want, a study by academics at Oxford University shows.

    re Colossus – that was a very geeky “Awww.” But that’s why we love you Mia.

    rate the pm’s move…according to this john howard is going down and so are any other major party that support this. too many laws built on fear and not on compassion these days..I mean what is the worst that could happen? bad things -can- happen not worse than how straight couples are now. all in all this is a total waste of policy making time. i really wish they’d tackle real and current issues.
