As well as sharing some of the better images from today at work (all items will going under the hammer on September 30th, and the lot numbers range between 312 and 549) I have some important links to share.
Apart from one big coin lot at the start of the day, I was imaging big stamp lots as and when they were ready and medal lots in the gaps in between. Here are some of the better images…
My first two links are to splendid posts on a new find, “why evolution is true“, a blog named for the book of that title by Jerry A Coyne (the book is superb as well by the way):
- This one about cane toads, which has already attracted favourable notice from one of my twitter followers.
- This mammoth post about the irreproducibility of psychology studies.
Another pair of related links:
- Before visiting this post from scriptonitedaily make sure you have a sick bag handy – it tells us about a former UKIP candidate who blamed the drowning of a three year old Syrian on the greed of his parents.
- A petition that is just taking off an avaaz calling for “no more drownings”
Jayne Linney in her eponymous blog takes the DWP to task for once again refusing to release data on disability benefits.
Meanwhile, Welfare Weekly have this about a volunteer law project that has won 95% of its appeals against fit to work test results.
Michael Meacher has produced this excellent post about Tony Blair’s increasingly hysterical denunciations of the Corbyn campaign.
I end this brief post with a link to thefashionhistorian because the author of this blog, Katy Werlin has just become involvewd in the East End Womens Museum project. Here is a sample of Katy’s work. Hot off the press, a new link offering you a chance to write to the mayor of Tower Hamlets about this issue.
