Exotic pet trade - Fact sheet
"The trade in wild animals for pets causes suffering to millions of animals,
disrupts ecosystems and drives species to extinction. The trade also
provides a route for disease transmission, which poses a risk
to human and animal health.
Worldwide, an estimated 4 million birds, 640,000 reptiles,
40,000 primates and 350 million tropical fish
are recorded in trade each year."

A Scottish comic has rewritten Robbie Burns' classic poem
'Address to the Haggis' - and renamed it 'Address to the Deep-fried Mars bar'.
"Paul Sneddon penned the new ode, which mocks the dietary habits
of his compatriots and their penchant for alcopops...
''Robbie Burns is the embodiment of a lot about what is good about Scotland
and a lot about what is not so good about Scotland,'' said Sneddon. ''He wrote incredibly moving poetry and romantic verse. And yet he was a drunk
and a womaniser. "

"This film, which was extremely popular in Britain and the USA, has all the ingredients and dilemmas that please students: a love story, parent-child relationships, decision making, truth telling, playing sports, hero worship.
Above all it is an excellent illustration of the lives and problems of
Asian minorities in Great Britain (and by extension the same problems faced
by adolescents from immigrant families elsewhere).
We are therefore proposing activities around this theme that can be used
for a unit on multiculturalism for example."

Watching TV Linked to Higher Risk of Death
"Australian researchers who tracked 8,800 people for an average of six years
found that those who said they watched TV for more than four hours a day were
46% more likely to die of any cause and 80% more likely to die of
cardiovascular disease than people who reported spending
less than two hours a day in front of the tube.
Time spent in front of televisions and computers and playing videogames has
come under fire in studies in recent years for contributing to an epidemic of
obesity in the U.S. and around the world.  "
