Thanks newbeat - I hadn't done the math like you, otherwise I'd probably have said 98% of Muslims are peaceful!

graorily, thank you for your comment about my intelligence and insight. I agree with you that Islam is not intrinsically a bad religion; but since that view seems to have a certain currency at the moment I simply offered the question as a debating point.

Nikola Tesla has been very helpful to the Toronto police a couple of times in The Murdoch Mysteries.

Governments are always looking for ways to use new technology to cut costs and resources.

In general I don't like commercials, especially if they're repeated during every break in every TV show for a month, and particularly if they feature sickly-cutesy anthropomorphic animals (search the forums for the word 'meerkat'!). Some adverts are very clever and very funny - examples in Britain over the years have been Carling Black Label and IrnBru - and those I can watch over and over Others are minor works of art, seeking to tell a dramatic story in under a minute, and I think they are well worth the air time. But mostly the advert break is a regular opportunity for me to explore the range of my knowledge of Anglo Saxon obscenities!

In cinemas most of the ads are dull and seem to advertise alcoholic drinks I'd never touch or cars I could never afford. At least the trailers alert me, very, very occasionally, to an upcoming film that interests me.

Most of all I hate the internet adverts, particularly the ones forced on me by Youtube at the start of videos and by Facebook as 'suggested topics'.

I'm sorry about that enfpgirl, I'm sure some of your new friends have had this experience themselves and will understand. You'll be able to get back to them soon enough. You look too pleasant natured a person to get mad at people very easily.

I am not quite sure how this would work, isabel10, but I could imagine an education service signing up to a national e-curriculum. It would be a way to try to ensure that every student in the country was studying the same material at the same time, introducing greater consistency in studies and in exams.

It's admirable for a leader to be loyal to his staff, but..."General Flynn is a wonderful man; I think he has been treated very, very unfairly by the media...And the documents and the papers that were illegally I stress that illegally leaked, very, very unfair"? Seriously? I'm sorry but where's that coming from?

General Flynn resigned his appointment, in disgrace, because it emerged that he had committed a serious breach of protocol - one tantamount to a criminal offence. And he had lied to the Vice President, who then publicly defended him, about doing so. Okay, I accept that his guilt was revealed through an illegal leak, which cannot be condoned; but could that not have come from a loyal Defense Department official appalled by Flynn's actions, and the Trump administration doing nothing about them despite, allegedly, having been warned about them a month ago?

It would be quite extraordinary if the media did not report and analyse the matter in these circumstances. Yet, with all this, Flynn is "a wonderful man" despite his criminality, the arguably less heinous illegality of leaking the details is "very, very unfair", and the media in doing their job have been very unfair in their treatment of the resignee? Either I've lost the plot here or the current occupant of the Oval Office has.

An Australian friend sent me a commercial batch of these for Christmas, in a commemorative Gallipoli tin - they were delicious.
