Bad Science
Bad Science
by Ben Goldacre
Edition: Paperback
Price: £4.49

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read for everyone, 22 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bad Science (Paperback)
Everyone should read this book - it tells the truth behind the unsubstantiated claims citing studies that have no technical or medical credence yet are portrayed as showing the particular item under test to be a wonderful product.

Ben Goldacre writes in an engaging style that makes you want to read more and more.

Wahl James Martin Digital Steamer, 3 Tier
Wahl James Martin Digital Steamer, 3 Tier

1.0 out of 5 stars Started off OK then went down hill fast, 7 May 2016
For the first 6 months of operation the steamer worked (for the most part) as it should although from day one the I/O (usually denotes on/off) didn't do anything - the settings were all cried out with the PROG button together with the + - rocker switch and when you got to the end of the sequence it started steaming.
So now (6 months in) it takes a high degree of dexterity with a specific finger - based on the day of the week and the current atmospheric pressure (I think this is the pattern)
- with the PROG button select and set (using the +- key with any finger) the delay time and then the steaming time
- counting from the thumb to the small finger count out the day number where Monday is day 1 unless the atmospheric pressure is above 1012mb in which case Sunday would be day 1 - and use that finger to tap out on the I/O button n times where n = day number plus the sum of the digits of the atmospheric pressure - so for a Wednesday when the atmospheric pressure is 1020 you would tap the I/O button 4 + 1 + 2 = 7 times with your third finger (thats the one next to the little finger - unless of course it's a leap year ???????)

OK you get the idea - the buttons don't work - well they do if you tap them enough

I cannot recommend this steamer unless you want to spend hours of aimless tapping on buttons

C ORIGINALS G14 Aero Road Bike Cycling Time Trial Triathlon TT Track Race Helmet - 2X Visors (BLACK/ORANGE)
Offered by C ORIGINALS
Price: £99.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A very versatile and highly aerodynamic helmet, 1 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This has got to be the most versatile Triathlon helmet made. The removable panels allow for extra ventilation (centre panel) on really hot days without sacrificing the aero features.
The fit of this helmet is snug and comfortable with that all enveloping feel that just inspires confidence.
A big benefit of the removable panels is that because they are not an integral part of the safety structure of the helmet they can be painted and adorned with your chosen designs without the fear that any adhesive in the stickers will weaken the structure of the helmet. Replacement panels are available relative reasonably so you can mix and match to create your own style.
The visor is very deep and gives good aero protection to the face.
I have seen test results that show this helmet to be on a par aerodynamically with the Kask Bambino costing at least twice the price of this helmet.
[...]
I would advise applying a small dab of thread locking fluid on each screw to ensure that they don't come out - not that there is any suggestion that they would - its just better to be on the safe side.


Salomon Speedcross 3, Men's Trail Running
Salomon Speedcross 3, Men's Trail Running
Price: £68.00 - £188.87

5.0 out of 5 stars Very grippy Trail shoe, 11 Mar. 2016
These Trail shoes are best suited to soft and loose ground where they must rate as one of the best with an aggressive chunky tread that really inspires confidence when the going gets sticky. If your runs are predominately on the soft and loose then you can't beat these shoes however they are not ideal on tarmac, but then they are Trail Shoes.
The fit is somewhat on the snug side (Salomon call it 'Precise And Cradle-like Fit') so if you normally take a half size then I would advise a test fitting before buying.
The lacing system is different with very thin laces held in place with a plastic locking device which you can operate with one hand.
Overall these are a very capable Trail shoe which will deliver the level of grip that will more than satisfy the majority.
Highly recommended.
