Farewell to Soho’s Stockpot

Source: Farewell to Soho’s Stockpot

I was introduced to The Stockpot in Kensington by my sister, when she worked at Harrods back in the 1970s, and then made a point of visiting Soho and Earls Court too.

Very welcoming and great value food.

I wish the owner an enjoyable retirement. Thank you for feeding us down the years.

Surprising: Researchers correlate rheumatoid arthritis and giant cell arteritis with solar cycles

I find that idea interesting as an arthritis sufferer.

Could a drug be created to protect against the impact of solar flares and cycles?

Watts Up With That?

From the DOE/Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratorysolarcycle_soho

What began as a chat between husband and wife has evolved into an intriguing scientific discovery. The results, published in May in BMJ (formerly British Medical Journal) Open, show a “highly significant” correlation between periodic solar storms and incidences of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and giant cell arteritis (GCA), two potentially debilitating autoimmune diseases. The findings by a rare collaboration of physicists and medical researchers suggest a relationship between the solar outbursts and the incidence of these diseases that could lead to preventive measures if a causal link can be established.

RA and GCA are autoimmune conditions in which the body mistakenly attacks its own organs and tissues. RA inflames and swells joints and can cause crippling damage if left untreated. In GCA, the autoimmune disease results in inflammation of the wall of arteries, leading to headaches, jaw pain, vision problems and even…

A big weekend ahead for the underdogs

Well I shall be heading off to watch AFC Wimbledon take on York City up North in the First Round of the FA Cup, do think about the other clubs either continuing or starting out on their adventure this season. Please read on.

The Ball is Round

The FA Cup is the oldest cup competition in the world and although it may have lost some of its shine among the top clubs in the Premier League in recent years, it still has the ability to produce magic as we saw last season across various stages of the tournament.

9559267058_fca0c325df_kThis weekend the First Round properly gets underway in which there are 40 ties involving League One, League Two and non-league clubs from various steps of the football pyramid. Teams like Warrington Town, AFC Fylde and East Thurrock United all get their chance to shine in what will be one of the biggest games in their club’s history.

Many of the sides which have safely advanced through the qualifying rounds are semi-professional which means there will be builders, plumbers and electricians all mixing with some of the professionals of the Football League, but for the 90 minutes of their…

johncoleman_TWCA RESPONSE FROM CLIMATE SKEPTIC JOHN COLEMAN FOUNDER OF THE WEATHER CHANNEL

When you read a news story about the United Nations Panel on Climate Change issuing new climate warnings and making a plea for immediate action to counter the impending climate crisis, do you ever wonder whata climate change skeptic thinks when he reads that news report.

I would like to share such an experience with you.

This is the Associated Press news report with mythoughts as I read itinserted in bold.

COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — Climate change is happening, it’s almost entirely man’s fault and limiting its impacts may require reducing greenhouse gas emissions to zero this century, the U.N.’s panel on climate science said Sunday.

The first four words are very important. “Climate Change is happening.”  You bet it is.  The climate of planet Earth has been constantly changing for 4.5 billion…

Al Gore does it again :o)

Watts Up With That?

Al Gore, is his usual incompetent persona, is bloviating weapons grade nonsense again.

A few prior examples: On TV, Earth’s core is millions of degrees, in AIT, snows of Mt. Kilimanjaro will gone due to global warming, except the snows are growing, and Gore’s 24  hours of Climate Reality “high school science” that is so solid it has to be faked in post production.

Gore’s got a new schtick, he is now complaining about “dirty energy” making “dirty weather”.

From the Daily Caller there’s this:

Former Vice President Al Gore showed that he isn’t giving up on sounding the alarm on global warming and its catastrophic consequences in an appearance on Current TV’s “The War Room with Jennifer Granholm” on Thursday.

Gore, who owns CurrentTV and appeared alongside former Obama administration “green jobs czar” Van Jones, explained that “dirty energy and dirty money” are thwarting a green economy…

so are we about see a fall in global temperatures?

Watts Up With That?

Guest post by David Archibald

The first prediction of the current climatic minimum was made by Hubbert Lamb in 1970 in a report (Weiss and Lamb) for the German Navy. He did it by making a reconstructed record of the average frequency of south-westerly surface winds in England since 1340. Quoting Lamb “We sense a cycle or periodicity of close to 200 years in length.” and “There may be a valuable indication of the origin of this apparent 200 year recurrence tendency, in that the sharp declines of the south-westerly wind indicated in the late 1300s, 1560s, 1740s-1770s and now, in each case fell at about the end of a sequence of sunspot cycles which built up to periods of exceptionally great solar disturbance (around 1360-80, the 1570s, the 1770s, the 1950s and more recently). The frequency maxima of the south-westerly wind, and evidence of warm climate periods in Europe…
