  • Scientists convinced of tie between earthquakes and drilling

    With the evidence coming in from one study after another, scientists are now more certain than ever that oil and gas drilling is causing hundreds upon hundreds of earthquakes across the U.S. Up to now, the oil and gas industry has generally argued that any such link requires further study. The potential for man-made quakes "is an important and legitimate concern that must be taken very seriously by regulators and industry," said Jason Bordoff, founding director of the Center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia University.

  • Echo comment: Is nation’s NHS being milked by fat cats?

    WHILE most voters welcome the principle of extra cash for the health service, hard questions need to be asked as to where that money goes. Now a local insight into the enormous sums paid to some NHS staff is provided by the case of hospital manager Sandy Spencer. She earned £145,000 for just five months’ work at Southend Hospital, the equivalent of almost £350,000 a year. Mrs Spencer is one of a number of managers who specialise in short-term, interim appointments, rather than permanent positions.

  • Beware the boars

    Indeed, since the first wild boar arrived in the Forest – apparently let loose by a farmer a decade ago – the population has grown from a few pairs to at least 1,000 and is still soaring. The Forestry Commission, which administers the 42-square mile area west of Gloucester last year culled around 350, but with an average litter size of six piglets, plentiful food and no predators, the boar are winning the demographic battle hands down. Domestic gardens, parks and sports grounds are being regularly wrecked by boar rooting for food, and several car crashes, including one in which a 47-year-old man was killed, have been blamed on the creatures. Each week brings new scare stories of boar encounters, and as the mood darkens in the forest, many fear it is only a matter of time before a human is seriously injured.

  • Madeleine McCann latest: are police any closer to knowing the truth?

    Every possible theory has been explored since then: that Madeleine was abducted by a paedophile; that she was killed during a bungled burglary and her body dumped; that she was abducted by traffickers and sold to a childless couple; that she wandered out of the apartment and died in a tragic accident, and many more besides. To date, however, not one shred of proof of what happened to Madeleine has been unearthed. The question of what happened to Madeleine would become not only a personal tragedy for the McCann family, but a national obsession in the UK and in Portugal. Madeleine, of Rothley, Leicestershire, was on the penultimate day of her family holiday on the day she vanished.
