Coffee Is Good For You - Maybe


I love farking science!

One day we are told that coffee is bad for your heart, and that the caffeine contained within it is addictive. Another day we are told that coffee is good for you.

Research conducted in Korea, and published in the journal Heart, now suggests that drinking a few cups of coffee a day may help people avoid clogged arteries.

However, some studies have linked consumption to heart risk factors such as raised cholesterol or blood pressure.

Guess what?

There is no conclusive evidence either way!

As ever with research, trying to come to a "one size fits all" conclusion simply doesn't work. Indeed British Nanny doesn't like having her advice about the dangers of coffee undermined, especially by non Brits.

Victoria Taylor of the British Heart Foundation is quoted by the BBC:
"While this study does highlight a potential link between coffee consumption and lower risk of developing clogged arteries, more research is needed to confirm these findings and understand what the reason is for the association. 

We need to take care when generalising these results because it is based on the South Korean population, who have different diet and lifestyle habits to people in the UK."
Thus, as with all research and conclusions drawn by Nanny's vested interests, it is better to ignore the research and simply indulge in your pleasures with common sense, moderation and balance (allowing for the occasional binge).

After all, we are all going to die one day no matter how abstemious we are!

Prats of The Week - Tesco

My thanks to a loyal reader for nominating Tesco as Prats of The Week.

For why?

Just ask Tony Morris, who went to his local store in Carlton to but some nuts and bananas.

When he attempted to pay for them at the self service checkout he was asked to verify his age. The stupidity was further compounded, when a member of staff and a security guard came across and told him that it was in case he was going to ferment alcohol.

A Tesco spokeswoman is quoted by the Mirror denying that this is Tesco policy:
We don’t age restrict the sale of nuts - our store team have rechecked all the nuts in the store to ensure this is the case.

Giving customers great service is our number one priority and we’re sorry if the incident caused our customer any inconvenience.
However, her words ring hollow as this is not the first time that Tesco has asked for age verification wrt fruit. Kate Lancaster, at a Tesco Metro Plymouth, was asked to prove she was over 18 when buying a snack pack of water melon and grapes.

Why?
"Fruit will be age verified in case natural fermentation takes place”.
Tesco, well deserving Prats of The Week!

Nanny Warns "Keep Your Hand On Your Stick"


Commiserations to Nkosana Mdikane, 74, "Scotland's happiest lollipop man" (due to his singing and dancing at work) who has been banned by Nanny's chums from West Dunbartonshire Council from high fiving kids.

For why?

Health and safety!

West Dunbartonshire Council are quoted by the BBC:
"All patrollers are instructed when crossing children over a road to remain static with one hand on their stick and the other stretched outwards. This ensures that they can be seen and effectively provides a barrier between school pupils and the traffic." 
Read that again...
"...one hand on their stick..."
Ooer missus!

A parent speaking to the BBC Scotland news website said:
"Because our children want to go and see him [Nkosana Mdikane] they all cross at the pedestrian crossing, rather than anywhere else on the road, so he's keeping our children safe. 

Also because he's such a 'larger than life' character the cars pay more attention too."
There is also a Facebook group named "Save the high fives", which has gained support from almost 3,000 people since it was set up on Wednesday afternoon.

Nanny doesn't have any commonsense, and wants to crush individuality!

Religion Is Bollocks

As per the Telegraph a YouGov poll of Muslim students in the UK, conducted for the Centre for Social Cohesion, at 12 universities, including Imperial College and Kings College London found:

  • 40 per cent support the introduction of sharia into British law for Muslims
  • a third back the notion of a worldwide Islamic caliphate (state) based on sharia law
  • 40 per feel it is unacceptable for Muslim men and women to mix freely
  • 24 per cent do not think men and women are equal in the eyes of Allah
  • a quarter have little or no respect for homosexuals.
Although 53 per cent said that killing in the name of religion was never justified, compared with 94 per cent of non-Muslims, 32 per cent said that it was.

Of these, 4 per cent said killing could be justified to "promote or preserve" religion, while 28 per cent said it was acceptable if that religion were under attack.

Were god to actually exist, he/she would have none of this nonsense and would recognise that religion (in whatever shape or form it takes) has caused and continues to cause misery and conflict throughout the world.

Big Barbie


Hot on the heels of SmartTV's that listen to what you say, comes Hello Barbie that listens in on your childrens' conversations!

Mattel has unveiled a high-tech Barbie that will listen to your child, record its words, send them over the internet for processing, and talk back to your kid. It will email parents highlights of their kids' conversations with the toy.

The Wi-Fi connected Hello Barbie doll is developed by ToyTalk

When you press a button on her belt buckle, Barbie wakes up, asks a question, and turns on its microphone while the switch is held down.

The doll is loaded up with scripts to read, and one of these is selected depending on what the kid said. If the kid shows an interest in a particular past-time or thing, the doll’s software will know to talk about that – giving the kid the impression that chatty Barbie’s a good, listening friend.

The recorded audio of children’s voices (and whatever else happens to be going on around them when they push the buckle button) is kept on ToyTalk’s computers.

As per ZeroHedge, here is the The ToyTalk privacy policy page:
"When users interact with ToyTalk, we may capture photographs or audio or video recordings (the “Recordings”) of such interactions, depending upon the particular application being used.
 
We may use, transcribe and store such Recordings to provide and maintain the Service, to develop, test or improve speech recognition technology and artificial intelligence algorithms, and for other research and development or internal purposes.

We may make such Recordings available to the parent account holder and permit the parent account holder to share such Recordings with third parties.
By using Hello Barbie, parents agree to these terms.

You have been warned!

Pork Off!



I see that schools in Islington are no longer serving pupils sausages, chops or bacon.

For why?

In case Jewish or Muslim children eat the meat by accident, and contravene their beliefs.

A spokesman is quoted by the Telegraph:
"Young children, some as young as four, of different religious and ethnic backgrounds may not know which foods contain pork, or may not realise the importance of avoiding it due to their culture or beliefs.

Monitoring each child, every day ensuring they are avoiding pork, is an unnecessary cost at a time of tight budgets." 
That sounds total BS to me.

Schools have managed, and continue to manage, serving pork elsewhere without creating this "problem".

Given that there are at least two dishes on offer to kids, and that the dishes are clearly labelled, there is no issue at all here except the one created by Nanny.

Following Nanny's "logic" I assume Islington will ban meat, lest a vegetarian child inadvertently eats it!
