Stuff that occurs to me

All of my 'how to' posts are tagged here. The most popular posts are about blocking and private accounts on Twitter, also the science communication jobs list. None of the science or medical information I might post to this blog should be taken as medical advice (I'm not medically trained).

Think of this blog as a sort of nursery for my half-baked ideas hence 'stuff that occurs to me'.

Bit disappointed that Greenwich Council's supporting community college woo

Picked up a copy of Greenwich Learns in Charlton House today and spotted that there are still adverts for courses in reiki, NLP and hand reflexology. I don't mind people selling charging for courses in these and making a spot of money out of it - why not? - but the fact that the Greenwich Council logo is on the front of Greenwich Learns makes me wonder if they're lending this sort of foolishness some sort of legitimacy, or even subsidising it. The information is certainly linked from their website.

A while back I wrote to one of the colleges involved but didn't hear back and didn't chase it up. I might have a bit of a think about this...

Comment policy: I enthusiastically welcome corrections and I entertain polite disagreement ;) Because of the nature of this blog it attracts a LOT - 5 a day at the moment - of spam comments (I write about spam practices,misleading marketing and unevidenced quackery) and so I'm more likely to post a pasted version of your comment, removing any hyperlinks.

Comments written in ALL CAPS LOCK will be deleted and I won't publish any pro-homeopathy comments, that ship has sailed I'm afraid (it's nonsense).
