According to the BBC F1 page, I believe it very much is going ahead.
AFAIK we have not yet invested in a TV licence.
Will this clash with the Foundation Licence course? I assume that this
will be in the quiet room.

Can you make sure that you dig deep, it's a bit pricey but it's
perfect for sports. Especially ideal for the world cup, and olympics.

When you use the utensils some of the molecules of the meat are
transfered to utensil. As it's washed and reused the moelecules will
gradually be removed but the untensil will retain a memory of the
molecules. This can then be transfered to any vegan friendly food. I
believe homeopaths have been aware of this effect for a couple of

I don't think that many people are strongly against watching the F1
race. But it's a thin-end-of-the-wedge thing - although an occasional
bit of TV is acceptable, having a TV on constantly in one room (as
happens in all too many pubs) would basically make that room unusable
for many people. and while we do have 3 rooms, they're all essential
for other purposes at one time or another.
Of course, constant TV hasn't been proposed and several people,
Catherine included, have stated it's not the aim. But if there's no TV
licence it can't happen, which is a pretty safe position. So I can
understand objections (and if pushed to take sides would take that
To resolve it peacefully, we just need the principles to be nailed
down. TV is a schedulable activity, just like any workshop.It's not
allowed to take over, it's not allowed to become the default when
there is nothing else scheduled. Personal use must remain personal,
with headphones and not using shared resources.
This article clearly illustrates the dangers of TV. How will we
protect any children visiting the space? I think we should be able to
repurpose one of the welding screen doors.
It's a nice gesture but I think I read something in the Daily Mail about
welding screens giving you cancer.

I think you are getting your health scares mixed up, getting cancer from welding screens is clearly ridiculous. It is rickets that
is the problem.
Welding screens sbsorb all UV from the surrounding environment, preventing children from using it to synthesise vitamin D. A
this vitamin is a major cause of rickets, which is still a common disease in the developing world - which just happens to be where
welding screens are made.
The manufacturers are well aware of the risks, but continue to naively assume that children won't spend large amounts of time in
workshops and therefore provide no warnings whatsover of the serious harm that can result.
It is about time that the government took action over this, I am thinking of starting an epetition on the subject.
Hi all!Now that the TV licence thingy seems to be fairly positively on the move, Amran and I would like to announce a F1 Monza GP Special Event on Sunday 11th September. It's perfect if you're new to Formula 1, or an old hand that wants to get together to discuss Eddie's taste in shirts.Formula 1 is a wonderfully techy sport, with a lot of the cutting edge R&D in engines, tyres, and other car parts. It also has a rich history in Britain, with many of the top teams owned or based in the UK. Monza is considered the fastest track of the season, with the cars pushed to their limits as they hit over 230 mph. It's also renowned as being one of the deadliest circuits too, having claimed the lives of 52 drivers, but more recent developments in car and track safety have massively improved the conditions for both drivers and spectators. Still, there's a lot of excitement to be had, and some magnificent engineering and strategy to admire.11.30: Talk by Amran about Formula 1 tech, engineering, and strategy. Discussion about this sort of stuff will continue throughout the afternoon as the race progresses.12-ish: BBC coverage begins13.00: Race begins.Bring a packed lunch and some snacks!Hope to see you there,Catie and Amran
