Ideal Christmas gifts for scientists | Dean Burnett

With the holiday season, people are desperately trying to find the right gifts for their loved ones. But what if you need to buy a gift for a scientist? Consumer culture tends to ignore fans scientific market, so there are relatively few conventional products intended for them. The only solution is to invent a new

is the holiday season, which means that people have to buy gifts. Buying gifts can be stressful at the best of times, but it can be even worse if you need a gift for a scientist fanatic / science. These people, by definition, such as science, but there is relatively little in the way of common products that meet this growing demographic of fans of science-types apparently. Science and technology are, of course, heavily involved in the development and manufacture of almost all consumer products purchased as gifts regularly. All Smartphones, Tablet PC and console is the final result of large quantities of advanced research and development. But even their storage costs generic deodorant lot of science behind them.

Almost nobody cares much. It seems that science is merely a means to an end, when it comes to consumer goods, which is used and unmanned in any way. People are more inclined to consider the science behind his shiny new possession as Starbucks ask the bartender what kind of machine used to grind grain. With this kind of attitude to face, why would you produce articles that focus on possible gifts and celebrate science itself?

Then someone told me that you can buy caffeine infused panties. Ie pants infused with microcapsules that release caffeine. Caffeine intends to fight against cellulite or something, do not you wake up is more typical. Caffeine is apparently quite common in products of skin care. It's a bit more reassuring, there are many vehicles for drug delivery, but "short" is not usually one of them.

But whatever the mechanism of the actual or anticipated these clothes, and regardless of whether they work or not (not, apparently), I found comfort in his own life . This shows that, at some point, someone suggested "the administration of caffeine Knickers" product as possible, instead of alcohol, they are serious and things are done. I think logic is that if there is someone to buy. And if it happened once it can happen again.

In this spirit, I thought I'd suggest some possible products make ideal gifts for lovers of science. If anyone is interested in reading this and able to, please do so. I do not want royalties or anything.

Now in its 11th year, is an artistic event ABMB to see and be seen. For the uninitiated, it is easy to feel overwhelmed and exhausted by ABMB. If you think London is too eventful in the frieze just stay away from Miami this year, there were at least 17 art fairs taking place simultaneously. Art around the city with pop-up exhibitions, a new museum, film screenings, public sculptures (including a black dog King Kong companies) and street art by people like Shepard Fairey, the creator of the famous Obama "Hope" poster.

through the pouring rain to be greeted Staffordshire with a big smile at the reception at the Hilton on the site of the man she had been in open war only 18 months earlier.

was the FA chairman David Bernstein, who was standing in the 2011 Congress of FIFA in Zurich allegations of corruption swirling around the organization and said Blatter should not be allowed to be re-elected without opposition.

After exchanging pleasantries

, flags, medals and other various accessories related to the visit of the FIFA President, Joseph S. Blatter said that the FA is now a good friend of the governing body of world football.

"What we see today is nothing but cooperation in football." S In friendship, in recognition of the work that has been done here by the FA in the park of San Jorge. No return in the past are now living a wonderful day -. 'S this, "said Blatter, who announced that the FA has received $ 500,000 (£ 313.720) of its Goal project at the medical center in the premises of £ 100 million

The FA also announced that it will host nine coaches promising international football as part of a new scholarship program.

The Mousetrap at 60: why is this the world's longest-running play?

Agatha Christie whodunit is 60 years. What is the secret of his longevity? Stephen Moss goes behind the scenes of "snow room" and the pub for a sing-song with the cast

Quentin Tarantino saw The Mousetrap

two years ago. I would have said that, because when I recently called the work, which this week clocks 60 years in the West End of London, I could not help but wonder what I could do with creaky old Agatha Christie thriller. Blood, gore, black humor, talk tortuous. Could be great, but probably only lasts two weeks.

I've always been fascinated by The Mousetrap, which was in the Ambassadors Theatre 22 years after its creation in 1952, before moving to atmosphere side of St. Martin. I checked the sign changed every year on its facade - "60 years" who preaches today - and questioned outside groups tour in Japan. But I had never seen until last week, when, on the occasion of the joint celebration of its 60th anniversary and its 25,000 th performance I saw, not once but three times.

a Tuesday morning is probably not the best place to start: about 100 followers in a 550-seat theater. The first thing you notice is a wooden panel in the hall: "This performance is the number 24 993 Agatha Christie The Mousetrap, the longest in the world to launch the game." Many participants were photographed with him, claiming its place in the history of theater.

A young woman is out with her grandmother, who uses a wheelchair. Asked a man in a costume for a ramp, thinking that it is the staff. It is not - it is here to see the game - but seek one anyway. We are, after all, a big family. Linda Allcock, against Birmingham with her husband, Roger, is celebrating her birthday. "I always wanted to see The Mousetrap," he said later in the interval. "So I said," Well, I'm 60 years old, his 60th birthday. - I'll go see Agatha Christie I love you. " I wonder if it worked for that. She hazards a guess. I told her she could be in for a surprise. "He was a member of the audience?" Roger takes a brilliant suggestion.

There are eight cast members, each signed by a season of 47 weeks. More than 400 actors who have appeared in recent years. Richard Attenborough was the original Sergeant Trotter and his wife, Sheila Sim, the first Mollie Ralston - Hostel owner Monkswell Manor, which inevitably overwhelmed (which does not prevent Trotter arrives on skis residents say that s 'is the first murderer). But alongside Attenborough and Sim, few players were headliners. The Mousetrap is a star vehicle, the work and its author are the stars

The drama became the longest running show in the history of British theater and in April 1958 (reproduced below, did not run as long as they do now). From that moment, says producer Stephen Waley-Cohen, "began to develop its own momentum." I liken it to Madame Tussauds and the changing of the guard - something you must do if you visit London. But public is not, as conventional wisdom suggests, mainly composed of foreign tourists. Most are from other parts of the United Kingdom, for them, the trap is part of the London experience. It's like a quasi-religious ritual, with the public as part of a process than plaster.

Geoff Bullen, the current director, agrees that it is a rite of passage, but insists that it works as theater, too. "The work is plentiful and not only the characters cardboard cutouts," he said. "It is very well organized - the height of The Dream of a Summer Night." Charles Spencer, drama critic of the Daily Telegraph, it looks more like a nightmare afternoon in winter. "San Martin Theatre one of the most attractive theaters of the West End, "he wrote last year," and it is a tragedy that has been filled with tosh so painful for so long. " Telegraph readers, constituency work naturally turned to him.

More than a dream
Waley-Cohen added: ".. because it works in the period and is absolutely right or camp not knowing" However, given that most people will see it as a phenomenon rather than a game, of course there is an awareness of its historical baggage? "A little," he says, "but the public distribution. Expect actors pretend that it is a work of new construction in 1950."

The next night, I see the trap again, but this time behind the stage, sitting with the actors. They make me feel very welcome and showed me the room "snow" where all visitors Monkswell Manor receives a thick layer of white scales (foam pad) before going on stage, but offered to let me turn the historical wind machine (as used in the original production) and take me to a pub in Soho after singing traditional Wednesday night.
