Bizarre 'platypus' dinosaur discovered

Bizarre 'platypus' dinosaur discovered
Description
Although closely related to the notorious carnivore Tyrannosaurus rex, a new lineage of dinosaur discovered in Chile is proving to be an evolutionary jigsaw puzzle, as it preferred to graze upon plants. Palaeontologists are referring to Chilesaurus diegosuarezi as a 'platypus' dinosaur because of its extremely bizarre combination of characters that include a proportionally small skull and feet more akin to primitive long-neck dinosaurs.

Why the zero-carbon homes policy hasn't gone to plan
Description
Written by Max Lempriere, PhD Researcher in Political Science. One of the UK's flagship sustainability policies is in big trouble. Less than a year from now, the theory goes, all new homes will be "zero-carbon". The reality is rather different. Economic meltdown, a housing crisis, pressure from developers and poorly designed legislation have all combined to leave the country way behind schedule.

What Britain should learn from Syriza and Greek eurosceptics

What Britain should learn from Syriza and Greek eurosceptics
Description
Written by Dr George Kyris, Lecturer in International and European Politics. The last few years have been remarkable for Greece's relationship with the EU.
