I was delighted to be contacted by the Aeronautics team about this exciting project, proposing to evaluate particle movement during exercise and its impact on risk of infection during exercise.

The experiments are conducted using fixed equipment (such as treadmills and exercise bikes) in a correctly matched airstream, under conditions which accurately simulate the relative motion through the air of an exercising person. The tests are being conducted with Dr Kevin Gouder's team in the Department’s 10 x 5 wind tunnel, the upper section of which allows the use of human subjects without any flow constraint. The co-leads on the project are Dr George Papadakis (the project's PI) and Professor Denis Doorly.

It took almost 45 years for this 13-hour shaggy-dog experiment to reach American screens, but the timing turned out to be perfect. Mr. Rivette’s mischievous ramble through Paris, French literature and a handful of perennial philosophical puzzles (What is the nature of reality? How do we know what we know? What is the relation of effect to cause?) is both a charming, newly rediscovered artifact of its hectic time and a bulletin from the cinematic future. Everything has already been done, and everything is still possible.
Surveys indicate that a majority of women suffer or have suffered gender prejudice when looking for a job, because employers do not want to grant maternity leave.

Yes. There are plenty of positives: earnings, economic growth, and US tax cuts. But they are already known. Stocks look ridiculously expensive by historical standards, but that tells us nothing about short-term moves. Ultimately, it comes down to liquidity, which has driven markets since they emerged from the crisis in 2009. If all goes according to plan, central banks will be decreasing their balance sheets, and removing liquidity, by the end of 2018. If they go through with this, the odds are that the S&P will stall. But even a tiny tremor could make the bankers blink. Expect the momentum to continue.
