News wise, the same stories rattle on, Pistorius still pleading innocence but revealing more and more cracks in his story, searching for MH370 plane with the search zone narrowing down to a few hundreds square kilometres (audible pings were picked up). Nottingham Forest still haven't won a game for weeks. The IPCC (for Climate change) published a report on the total urgency of moving energy systems to renewable sources because none of the efforts of governments so far are making a dent in rising carbon emissions. See Guardian report, and IPCC website. Sue Townsend (famous for the Diary of Adrian Mole died at 68). India and Afghanistan are having elections.
