When the BBC children's series Rastamouse was first aired, it sparked debate over its use of Jamaican Creole. Does Saffron fear her doll might also be criticised? I know for a fact there are some parents who are against it, because they think that Jamaican patois is actually broken English, so they fear that their children's English will actually be distorted as a result.

Things like this only happened on the news. It's other people... You would never in a million years, you know, think it would happen to you. An inquest into Claire's death will resume later this year. Her parents, who have come from their home in Wales for Claire's funeral today, hope she will be remembered for the woman she was, rather than the circumstances around her death.

Initial plans to extend the Thanet offshore wind farm go on display today in Ramsgate. It's the first in a series of public information events organised by the wind farm owners Vattenfall, which wants to build up to 34 turbines nearly double the size of the 100 already there. If built, it would more than double the potential output of the wind farm. Angry parents have claimed this lunchtime that Kent grammar schools have forced their children to leave halfway through their A-level studies because their Year 12 grades were not considered good enough.

But a new six-minute documentary-style ad from Weight Watchers in the U.K. and filmmaker Gary Tarn manages to render the genre into something more beautiful and intimate, through a mix of gorgeous camera work and a focus on why people put on pounds in the first placeand naturally, what inspired them to get back in shape. Anabel Bonner started stress-eating as a child when her parents got divorced. As a young bride preparing for her wedding, she decided to pursue a particular aestheticfitting into the kind of dress she wanted became a guiding star for her weight loss program. Caroline Kulemeka found herself gaining pounds after eating junk food at her desk, and, unhappy with the scenario, used it to discover a love of running.

Krauthammer said, [relevant remarks begin around 1:15] [I]t tells you how completely weird the parents and the other people out there are. These are the same people who show up at the IMF meetings, and world bank, the Occupy Wall Street. You ask them, Why are you out there? Theyre completely incoherent. ... I mean, these people ought to be medicated. He added that the young man setting fires had a whiff of ISIS to it. Krauthammer further stated the protests, really have no agenda. ... I think the real culprits here are the people who ought to be the adults.

If the tech companies aren't careful, we'll get bored of being told everything is the best new thing and no one will buy anything until it's been proven. We'll end up doing what our parents did, nursing TVs and audio equipment through 20 or 30 years, because we know the replacements won't have the same shelf lives -- and the people that made them will say the one they released 11 months ago was rubbish, anyway, because here's a better one that's a few notes more, and you can order it today. 10 failed smartphone "innovations": projectors, 3D screens, gamepads and more

When she was asked about what do you think about IDEA, do you think it should apply to all the schools that get federal money. And she said no, that should be left to the states. There was exchange that she had with Senator Kane and then with Senator Murray from the state of Washington and it became clear; she had no idea what the IDEA was. She didnt understand that it’s actually a federal law, it’s not a question if the states want to meet the needs of children with disabilities. I think that the key quote was when Senator Kane was pressing her to explain whether she thought all the same regulations should apply to all schools who get federal funds and she kept dodging the question and finally he said, are you suggesting that if a state ignores the IDEA that parents should just move to another state so that they can find a state where the laws are going to be followed, and she was completely flummoxed.

Bet you've never seen math magic like this. These kids in India are solving complex math problems on the abacus, a traditional counting apparatus invented in China. Except they've skipped past needing to use the actual abacus, and are doing it entirely in their heads, with their fingers rapidly operating a virtual abacus. They're using a method called Mastermind Abacus , and it's fascinating to watch them at work. Who needs a calculator when you've got your hands?
