DC’s Improbable Science scores again for Science

DC’s excellent article “Hot and cold herbal nonsense from Napier University Edinburgh: another course shuts” scores again for science against nonsense “degrees”.

I laughed when I read this quote from Gerry Webber after he refused to supply information to a Freedom of Information request for details of what was actually taught on one of their “degree” courses :

“On public interest grounds, I have therefore concluded that, in respect of the commercially sensitive information requested, the public interest is better served in withholding the information you have requested than in disclosing it.”

What’s he hiding? Embarrassment, perhaps?

"A traveller with a camera!" I was born in Tanzania but emigrated from Tanzania to the United Kingdom at the tender age of two where I now live. I work in the fields of telecoms, data networks, and cyber security. I have a keen passion in travel photography, pedalling furiously on my bicycles, and travelling off the beaten path to far flung places. “Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints” has been a guide in my travels. But I do take more than pictures, and I leave with more than footprints; memories, emotions, and friendship.
