栗まんじゅう問題 - アンサイクロペディア
"「消化酵素仮説」に基づくと、まんじゅうの増殖を止める有効な方法としては、消化酵素を含む液をまんじゅうにかけ、その酵素の最適温度となる環境に置くことが考えられる。ただし、もしこうした方法が適切とされているのであれば、20世紀ですら存在するPL法の観点からしても、バイバインは(安全対策として)分解用の薬剤と共に販売されるべきであり、ドラえもんがその薬剤を持っていなかった点にも着目する必要がある。これが販売側の怠慢であるのか、ドラえもんのミスであるのか、消化酵素仮説そのものを否定する証拠であるのか、明確な結論は出ていない。

単に形が崩れれば増殖が抑制されるのか、消化酵素が介在しているのか、あるいは別の機構が存在するのか、などといったバイバインの効力を抑える理由を考察し、解明することが、まんじゅうの増殖を止める方法だけでなく、その後の分裂の様子を考える上で必要不可欠であると思われる。

仮に唾液のみでは増殖が抑制されなかった場合、20分もチューイングを続ければ頭部を構成する原子が全て栗まんじゅうに変換され、見るも無残な姿になることは容易に想像が付く。"

"さらに栗まんじゅうが増殖を続けたときを考える。栗まんじゅうが増殖を続けると宇宙の大半は栗まんじゅうとなる。こうなると宇宙は均質な栗まんじゅうで満たされた空間と見ることができる。よって、宇宙を考えるにあたり栗まんじゅうで満たされた空間の内部と、その外部に分けることができる。均質な栗まんじゅうに満たされた空間に観測者が居る場合、自身が栗まんじゅう中にいるのか真空中にいるのかは区別できない。背景にある栗まんじゅう粒子が無い場合を観測できないからである。空間内ではエネルギー分布の揺らぎも起こり、これが新たな状態を生み出す可能性もある。そして栗まんじゅうで満たされた空間は膨張を続け次第に冷えていく。

これは新たな宇宙の誕生である。また、我々がいるこの宇宙の性質とも矛盾しない。原作では栗まんじゅうは無事処理できたように書かれているが、もしかすると我々が今居る宇宙は栗まんじゅうに満たされた宇宙なのかもしれない。"

Jeremy Hunt considers barring walk-in patients from A&E | Society | The Guardian
“We know that the main issue contributing to pressures in A&E is not inappropriate attendance, but a lack of hospital beds, and a lack of the community support services patients need when they are discharged, so they end up staying in hospital for longer than they needed to.” [...] She added: “Maybe a pilot will identify some good ways of reducing genuinely inappropriate use of A&E, but that this idea is even circulating speaks volumes about the consequences of the government’s decision to underfund the NHS. The chancellor must take note, and respond in his budget next month.”

NHS operations could be cancelled for months this winter, senior medics warn
"If, as we expect, we see a flu outbreak, I think the NHS - in terms of both beds and clinical staff - will break far worse than last year and elective activity will almost certainly cease for several months." [...] Meanwhile, leaked documents seen by Health Service Journal suggest that an NHS trust with a history of high death rates agreed savings plans, despite warnings from its then finance director that doing so could threaten patient safety.

Falling number of nurses in the NHS paints a worrying picture | The King's Fund
Similar recruitment and retention problems have arisen with GPs, but here, interestingly, the government is intending to pull the international recruitment lever with a vengeance. Time will tell how successful this will be in the current environment: the plan is to attract at least some of these from other EU countries and as the nursing numbers show us, the UK is no longer quite so attractive a destination for clinical staff for obvious reasons.

At a deeper level, Brexit has again exposed the fragility of NHS workforce planning. This may be most immediate for nursing but the need for an integrated short and long-term plan for the NHS workforce long precedes Brexit. After all, there will be little point in giving the NHS its (disputed) extra £350 million a week if there are no staff to spend it on.

How Europe's far right fell in love with Australia's immigration policy | World news | The Guardian
Espersen has studied Australia’s Pacific solution in detail, so I pushed him: where would your Nauru be? “Morocco is a very good example of a country that would possibly do it for an amount of money,” he claims. And Danish staff could run the camps. “We would run the things ourselves and pay the Moroccan authority a fee. We would also make it possible for their local grocers or butchers to come and deliver goods … There will be excellent service, I can assure you.” In the Danish right’s offshore paradise, there would be education, too. Nobody will be “living in ratholes”, he promises. [...] As with Australia and its offshore centres, what happens in Libya stays in Libya while Europe washes its hands of responsibility. If the flow of migrants surges again during the next war or climate crisis, the clamour for offshoring will only grow louder. And if the Australian model is adopted more fully in Europe, then there will be no hope for legitimate refugees to claim asylum through legal channels, and more of them will seek illegal paths to Europe.

Draughty homes targeted in UK climate change masterplan | Environment | The Guardian
“In 2015 the government started hacking and slashing at all manner of green policies. This has stopped, and that’s very welcome,” he said.

Richard Black, the director of the Energy and Climate Intelligence Unit thinktank, echoed that view. He said the strategy showed a “sea change” in “top-line thinking about the low carbon economy”, with Theresa May’s government seeing it as an opportunity rather than a cost as it was viewed under David Cameron.

Electricity consumers 'to fund nuclear weapons through Hinkley Point C' | UK news | The Guardian
Last June, MPs passed a motion in favour of replacing four submarines carrying Trident missiles at a cost of £40bn.

“What our research suggests is that British low-carbon energy strategies are more expensive than they need to be, in order to maintain UK military nuclear infrastructures,” said Stirling.

Supermarkets must stop using plastic packaging, says former Asda boss | Environment | The Guardian
ocean. peoples sewers. // “We have been able to recycle plastic for decades yet it remains a scourge on the planet. Recycling will never offer a durable solution to the plastic crisis – we simply have to use less plastic in the first place.” [...] Between 5m and 13m tonnes of plastic leaks into the world’s oceans each year to be ingested by sea birds, fish and other organisms, and by 2050 the ocean will contain more plastic by weight than fish, according to research by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation.

Scientists at Ghent University in Belgium recently calculated people who eat seafood ingest up to 11,000 tiny pieces of plastic every year. Last August, the results of a study by Plymouth University reported plastic was found in a third of UK-caught fish, including cod, haddock, mackerel and shellfish.
