    When NASA's Kepler Telescope revealed that it had found what could have been an 'alien megastructure' orbiting a distant star, it didn't take long for both the wider community and the public to embrace what could have been our first glimpse at alien life.

  • Why pancreatic cancer is the hidden killer

    In fact, the lack of awareness among both the public and doctors (a recent study found three quarters of Britons couldn’t name a single symptom) and a desperate shortage of treatment and research have meant survival rates are pititful – with only four per cent of patients surviving for five years as opposed to 87 per cent of breast cancer patients. The statistics are shocking as an early diagnosis can mean the difference between a tumour that is treatable with surgery and one that isn’t.

Yeah, that's why your friends were so reluctant to see that action film Jumper with Hayden Christensen. It was probably very good but who wants to see a whole movie about warm clothing?

    Of course, I know that anecdotes aren’t data. But there’s quite a bit of that too. Last month, the Institute for Fiscal Studies made a rather interesting announcement. According to its analysis, the median income for pensioners in 2013/14 was £398 a week, while the median income for working age people was £384.  The IFS’s director, Paul Johnson went on to explain that while pensioners had once had it tough, this was ancient history. “What we’ve seen consistently since the 1980s is pensioner income rising in relation to non-pensioner income,” he explained, before adding, “Younger people, whose incomes are falling, are paying for these pensions and are suffering from the fact that someone else q
