|A MESSAGE FROM THE HEADMASTER|
|This delightful informal picture of the Headmaster and Sam was taken by his old friend Andy Parsons, who has now been taken on as Head of Photography – a new post and very important at this time of cutbacks, when it is essential that we keep the school and the Headmaster in the public eye.
The Governors have agreed to pay Mr Parsons an honorarium of £100,000 a year out of school funds. Special signed and numbered prints of Mr Parson’s touching study are available from the school shop and would make an ideal Christmas present. £75.99 for one print (unframed).

This comes after the news that George Osborne has let Vodafone off £6billion, only to then persue the Unemployed, those on Benefits and the Disabled for the money….

Keep an eye out for weather balloons…
Another thing to bear in mind is :
“The FAA ran radar replays of a large area west of Los Angeles based on media reports of the location of a possible missile launch around 5pm Monday. The radar replayed did not reveal any fast moving unidentified targets in that area. The FAA also did not receive reports of any unusual sightings from pilots who were flying in the area Monday afternoon. Finally the FAA did not approve any commercial space launches around the area Monday.” CBS Los Angeles

China flexed its military muscle Monday evening in the skies west of Los Angeles when a Chinese Navy Jin class ballistic missile nuclear submarine, deployed secretly from its underground home base on the south coast of Hainan island, launched an intercontinental ballistic missile from international waters off the southern California coast. WMR’s intelligence sources in Asia, including Japan, say the belief by the military commands in Asia and the intelligence services is that the Chinese decided to demonstrate to the United States its capabilities on the eve of the G-20 Summit in Seoul and the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Tokyo, where President Obama is scheduled to attend during his ten-day trip to Asia.
The reported Chinese missile test off Los Angeles came as a double blow to Obama. The day after the missile firing, China’s leading credit rating agency, Dagong Global Credit Rating, downgraded sovereign debt rating of the United States to A-plus from AA. The missile demonstration coupled with the downgrading of the United States financial grade represents a military and financial show of force by Beijing to Washington.
The Pentagon spin machine, backed by the media reporters who regularly cover the Defense Department, as well as officials of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), and the U.S. Northern Command, is now spinning various conspiracy theories, including describing the missile plume videotaped by KCBS news helicopter cameraman Gil Leyvas at around 5:00 pm Pacific Standard Time, during the height of evening rush hour, as the condensation trail from a jet aircraft. Other Pentagon-inspired cover stories are that the missile was actually an amateur rocket or an optical illusion.
Experts agree that this was a ballistic missile being fired off of Los Angeles.
Pentagon insists it was a jet aircraft or model rocket.

What Sky News had to say … 12:30pm UK, Wednesday November 10, 2010
Adam Arnold and Steph Oliver, Sky News Online
Experts believe the mystery missile fired off the Californian coast may have been an optical illusion.
The unknown missile, which was caught on camera by a news helicopter on Monday has baffled many people in America.
But US-based security analyst, Jim Pike, thinks he has solved the mystery.
He told CBS News the object could not be a rocket because it appears to alter its course and concluded it must be an optical illusion.
Mr Pike said he believes the video shows an aeroplane heading towards the camera with the plane’s contrail illuminated by the setting sun.
The launch took place around 5pm local time on Monday and the location was described as west of Los Angeles, north of Catalina Island and about 35 miles out to sea.
Pentagon spokesman Colonel Dave Lapan said all indications are that the defence department was not involved and the missile’s trail might have been created by an object flown by a private company.

Sorry, this is another inexcusably short confusing piece from the Indiscriminate.
I doesn’t give any info, a no news article. I’m including it as an example of some of the vacuous reporting we suffer these days. On another note, when reading this article I thought…’Don’t we already have something that does this ??’
It’s called RAIN…and we have plenty of it in many parts of this country..!!
Trial hopes to cut road pollution
By Emily Beament
Saturday, 13 November 2010
The first UK trial using dust suppressants on roads to cut pollution caused by vehicles has been launched.
Two sites on major roads in central London will be sprayed with a chemical solution that sticks to polluting particles produced by engine emissions, tyres and brakes and prevents them circulating in the air. Particles are linked to health conditions such as asthma, heart disease and cancer.

Quarter of cancers discovered late
By Raf Sanchez, Press Association
Saturday, 13 November 2010
Nearly a quarter of cancer diagnoses in England are made when patients arrive at hospital in an emergency, a study has found.
Research by the National Cancer Intelligence Network (NCIN) found that 23 per cent of cancer cases were detected only as patients underwent emergency treatment.
The figures were even starker for sufferers of acute leukaemia and brain cancer, where well over half of cases were discovered at a critical stage.
Pensioners and those under 25 were most likely to be diagnosed with cancer during emergency procedures, while poor people were more likely to suffer from late detection than the rich.
The study found that people whose cancer was detected at an emergency stage were significantly more likely to be die within a year than those whose illness was discovered earlier.
