A recent report from the World Health Organisation suggests that humanity is ill prepared to deal with a large scale contagious outbreak.

Totally Wired about the Anniversary

This year marks the 150th anniversary of the laying of the second transatlantic telegraph cable between Foilhommerum Bay, Ireland and Hearts Content, Newfoundland. To commemorate the event, the ship ‘The Mallard’ will be following the journey ‘The Caroline’ made in laying the cable originally. This year also marks the 60th anniversary of the laying of the first transatlantic telephone cable. It is thought that the President of Ireland and the Prime Minister of Canada will mark the event with a commemorative phone call.

Cassie Newman, Vice-President of Imagination, went on to say that the error occurred as the result of a computer glitch and that it would not happen again.

Lost: One Person

On the third anniversary of her husband’s disappearance, Claire speaks to our correspondent about how she still hasn’t given up hope. “He was such a normal, kind, loving guy”, she said. “Never took a day off sick, always made time for me and the kids, and always had a funny story to tell from work.” Ben Raines, Mr. Picker’s former colleague at the Turbo Computer Warehouse, agreed: “You always knew where you stood with James - he put the same dedication into the smallest AV installation to the largest tower rebuild, and he always gave service with a smile. Nothing seemed that out of the ordinary on the day he went missing, said he was going to the clinic for a routine checkup, and that was the last we saw of him.”
