For earthquakes Lightning does strike twice
I heard about the second strike near Sumatra whilst at a fundraising event in Birmingham organised by Islamic Relief entitled "An Evening of Inspiration". The event was interesting as a musical crossover between traditional south Asian pentatonic scales and the normal western duodecaphonic scales.
The end result for one number by 786
was a form of mixture between traditional nasheed and the musical style of Westlife.
In the mean time the news agenda is moving on The Independent
reports on the further growth in tactical voting with an interesting quote from the Electoral Commission:"A spokeswoman for the Electoral Commission, which monitors general elections, said vote swapping was within electoral rules, but no one could break the privacy of the polling booth."
Is this the same Electoral Commission as the one that supported all postal ballots where the polling booth is abolished.
The issue of Education and specifically the government's failure on discipline in schools is also moving up the agenda. The government seem obsessed with buildings when they need to look at the issue of people. That, however, is nothing new.
