NEWS : Media Sensationalism
Some of the better players in the Indian media are getting into the "follower" mode. In the need to get a rush-print out to the market, accountability is getting lost in the process. The divergence between the headline and the first paragraph of content in this Hindustan Times article says a lot about the lack of research and the need for sensational headlines.
This is specially true of the online print media, where one news channel is conforming to the tactics of the other. So movie reviews and the sensational news gets captured on the homepage and actual content gets pushed into the background for someone who actually wants to read the news.
It's so peeving.
SCIENCE : Hey little girl is your daddy home...
As a supplement to Kingsley's post, just a word of caution to all those women out there. Don't grab the fire extinguisher if you're looking for this. It should have the same effect, but perhaps not the desired one.
