More good news for coffee drinkers

Woo hoo! Keep on drinking the dark brown gold!
Although the American Society for Nutrition’s popular “controversy session” at Experimental Biology 2007 focuses on the health effects of coffee drinking, panel chair Dr. James Coughlin, a toxicology/safety consultant at Coughlin & Associates, says that recent advances in epidemiologic and experimental knowledge have transformed many of the negative health myths about coffee drinking into validated health benefits.

Quote of the day: the future of whois

There are two communities with logics potentially at odds : on the one hand, those who see that Whois data is now used for other purposes than its original one and would like to see it more accurate and widely accessible because it is useful for them; on the other hand, those who see that some of the present uses may be illegitimate - even illegal - when considering some national laws, particularly regarding privacy protection, and that there is also potential for abuses, and who would like as a consequence to see access restricted.

A rare treat for a Canadian

I had a real treat a couple of weeks ago. I attended the fourth, and it turned our final day, of the test cricket match between the New Zealand Black Caps and Sri Lanka in Wellington. The highlight for me was watching the legendary and controversial spin bowler Muttiah Muralitharan take three wickets contributing to Sri Lanka's thrashing of the host team. We will see if I can work up to attending an entire five-day test!
