I remember as an astronomy undergrad in Cardiff 5 years ago always being so skeptical of the gravitational wave group, always saying "this year we'll make the detection!" Well, they've made me eat my words. Hats off to them!

I did my undergad project on this stuff
It's quite remarkable just how many galaxies are merging in the distant universe. The IR data from Herschel makes them really easy to spot, because all the dust gets heated by merger-induced star formation. ~20% of galaxies that have IR signatures are merging, which results in some really nice images in the optical region from Hubble.
Assuming the stats were using HMRC's definition of a Personal Services Company, that simply means that a lot of biologists have started or joined very very small companies. In fast, the only reliable definition of a "Personal Service Company" I could find was here: http://www.contractorcalculator.co.uk/what_is_a_personal_service_company.aspx
relating to contractors.
"And so the term personal service company began to be used by HMRC to describe businesses they considered as tax evaders and potentially the subject of tax investigations. "
And this is HMRC's take: http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/ir35/
Of course this is much more boring than assuming the statistics mean there are 165 prostitutes or escorts who could represent you in court.
Well, the majority of the film companies that are taking iiNet to court will be multinational. This is a test case for them...notice it's against Australia's third largest ISP, not the actual largest. If the film companies win the case, their legal teams around the world will formulate similar cases to see if the case can be replicated.
are definitely not affluent. Here I am in Shropshire, look out of my window into a village that is mainly council housing. This village is less than 2 miles from a mid sized market town. My 'broadband' doesn't go beyond 1.5Mbps. People saying this is the city funding the rural areas are wrong. It's just everyone funding BT.
