"PETER CAVE: Medical researchers at the University of New South Wales are claiming success in curing partial blindness by coating contact lenses with stem cells. The patients with diseased corneas wore the lenses coated with their own stem cells and after about a month their corneas had regrown. The scientists say that in the future the technique may be used to help people blinded by other causes."

"Church of Scientology members have been banned from editing Wikipedia articles about their church, after a long-running dispute about biased articles." *

PERSONAL COMMENT: Wikipedia's robustness depends on keeping out misinformation being contributed by individuals and organisations willing to fudge truth for their own benefit.

PERSONAL COMMENT:

The reporting seems to indicate that this finding is the missing link that we needed to confirm that we indeed descended from the apes, the evidence that we need to put Creationism as a failed theory. This, I think confirms for me that most people, even journalists working for major media companies, are not informed that this is merely a 'missing link' in the fossil records, not the missing link to prove that we have a common ancestor with apes.We already have enough evidence, through our studies of the DNA, to say that Creationism, as outlined in The Book Of Genesis, is a theory that contradicts the evidence we have.

Sexual abuse of children was "endemic" in Catholic boys' institutions in Ireland and church leaders turned a blind eye to it, says a report on mistreatment in church-run bodies dating back to the 1930s. "Children lived with the daily terror of not knowing where the next beating was coming from," the report said. "A climate of fear ... permeated most of the institutions and all those run for boys."

"The fossil record indicates that birds evolved from theropod dinosaurs during the Jurassic period, around 150 to 200 million years ago, and the earliest known bird is the Late Jurassic Archaeopteryx, c 155-150 Ma. Most paleontologists regard birds as the only clade of dinosaurs that survived the Cretaceous-Tertiary extinction event approximately 65.5 million years ago." (Wikipedia: Bird)

"...T-rex collagen makeup is almost identical to that of a modern chicken - this corroborates a huge body of evidence from the fossil record that demonstrates birds are descended from meat-eating dinosaurs," said Angela Milner, the associate keeper of palaeontology at the Natural History Museum in London.

Our brightest are kept dirt poor

IN THE last quarter of 2008, a significant group of Australians was living below the poverty line. For a single person, this meant living on less than $415.06 a week. These people were working full time ? 40 hours a week, and probably much more. They received no employer superannuation and weren't entitled to concessions or pensions.Who were they? Illegal migrant workers? Sweatshop employees unaware of their rights? No ? they were some of Australia's best and brightest minds: PhD students. (Source)
