What do Punjab and Italy's Po Valley have in common? More than you might imagine, which explains why immigrant Sikhs from the Indian state became the backbone of Italy's most famous cheese-making industry.

All current rape cases to be 'urgently' reviewed over disclosure fears - BBC News
"""
Last week, a rape charge against Oxford University student Oliver Mears was dropped on the eve of his trial, after a diary which supported his case was uncovered.

And in December, the trial of Liam Allan, who faced 12 counts of rape and sexual assault, was dropped when it emerged evidence on a computer disc - which police had looked through - showed messages from the alleged victim pestering him for "casual sex".

Earlier this week, the BBC revealed the number of prosecutions in England and Wales that collapsed because of a failure by police or prosecutors to disclose evidence had increased by 70% in the last two years.

On Rigorous Error Handling - 250bpm
"""

In my long career as a programmer I've seen a lot of projects with a lot of error handling practices and, sadly, almost none that actually worked.

We are facing facing few high-level problems here:

1. For many applications error handling is not critical.
2. Error handling code is rarely executed. Consequently, it looks like it works until it doesn't.
3. Programmers want to implement new features. Writing error handling is just an annoyance that slows them down.
