O/T but also at Reading and bound to be good
11 May 2016 20:00
Free Steven Pinker lecture
" 'The Sense of Style: The Thinking Person's guide to Writing in the 21st Century'.
He argues that we need to rethink usage advice. Rather than moaning about the decline of the language, carping over pet peeves, or recycling spurious edicts from the rulebooks of a century ago, we can apply insights from the sciences of language and mind to the challenge of crafting clear, coherent, and stylish prose."

@Reading U Wednesday 23 March 7.30pm at Henley Business School, Whiteknights campus.
Lecture: Wild life in a warmer world: Where are we and where are we going?
by Professor Camille Parmesan of Plymouth University
Admission is free but places are limited. must reserve

Professor Camille Parmesan was an official contributor to the Nobel Peace Prize awarded to the IPCC in 2007 for her groundbreaking work measuring the impact of man-made climate change on animal and plant life.
You might want to ask her about What Matt Ridley wrote :
Look what happened to a butterfly ecologist named Camille Parmesan when she published a paper on “ Climate and Species Range” that blamed climate change for threatening the Edith checkerspot butterfly with extinction in California by driving its range northward. The paper was cited more than 500 times, she was invited to speak at the White House and she was asked to contribute to the IPCC’s third assessment report.

Unfortunately, a distinguished ecologist called Jim Steele found fault with her conclusion: there had been more local extinctions in the southern part of the butterfly’s range due to urban development than in the north, so only the statistical averages moved north, not the butterflies. There was no correlated local change in temperature anyway, and the butterflies have since recovered throughout their range. When Steele asked Parmesan for her data, she refused. Parmesan’s paper continues to be cited as evidence of climate change. Steele meanwhile is derided as a “denier”. No wonder a highly sceptical ecologist I know is very reluctant to break cover.
