'But if you, like me, believe the way forward is not separation but justice through cooperation, then I say to you today:
'Hold yourselves with dignity. Have confidence. Our values are the values of the people of Scotland.
'Have confidence. Our future lies in cooperation and sharing, and not in separation and splitting apart. That unity is our strength. Have the confidence to stand up, be counted and say for Scotland's sake: not now, not this time, not the risks, no thanks.
'Have confidence to stand up and be counted and say, for Scotland's future, 'No'.'
Tell them it’s everyone’s flag, everyone’s culture, everyone’s country and everyone’s streets.


And tell them that our patriotic vision is bigger than nationalism; we want Scotland not leaving the UK, but leading the UK, and through leading the UK, leading in the world.

A classification system for science news

Science news and articles are becoming increasingly popular, but with so much being written about so many things, it can be confusing for the beginner science enthusiast to grasp what they’re reading and how to interpret it. A simple classification system could help remedy this…

So apparently feminism is a hate movement. I’m sorry I don’t remember any feminists going on any shooting sprees because they were rejected by men or sending death and rape threats to blogger who pointed out sexism in video games.

“Angélique Marguerite Le Boursier du Coudray (c. 1712–1794) was an influential, pioneering midwife. In 1759 the king commissioned her to teach midwifery to rural women to reduce infant mortality. Between 1760 to 1783, she traveled rural France, sharing her knowledge with women. During this time, she is estimated to have directly trained 4,000 students.“Du Coudray invented the first lifesize obstetrical mannequin, called “The Machine”. Various strings and straps serve to simulate the process of childbirth. The head of the infant mannequin has a shaped nose, stitched ears, hair drawn with ink, and an open mouth, with tongue.”
