A 65 Million Year Old Bargain?


Sotheby’s in New York will be auctioning Sue the Tyrannosaurus Rex on 4
October. The bones have been in storage for the last five years whilst the
owner of Sue was contested. The fossils are as-yet-unstudied but Sotheby’s
hopes to keep the fossils in the public realm. The auctioneers are promising
three years interest free credit to pay off what is expected to be a very high
price. (Science)

Constant Fun At Planck Exhibition


October 4 marks the 50th anniversary of the German Physicist Max Planck.
Planck is best known for initiating the study of quantum mechanics for
which he received the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1918. To commemorate
his anniversary the German Physical Society is holding an exhibition in
Berlin about his life and work. Exhibits range from Planck’s rucksack and
ice pick to a film commissioned by Joseph Goebbels featuring Planck dis-
cussing his life. (Nature)

New Chief Executive At The


Wellcome Trust
Prominent cancer researcher Mike Dexter has been chosen to lead the
Wellcome Trust into the next century. This is despite the fact that in his will,
Sir Henry Wellcome specified that no money was to be used for cancer
research as such. The trust has capital assets estimated to be worth more
than £10 billion. The trust currently has a growing involvement in issues
concerned with public understanding of science. (Nature)

Medical Diagnosis Goes PC


A computer program has been developed that can read ECGs (electrocar-
diograms) more accurately than specialist doctors. The computer was
10.5% more accurate than its human counterpart. The result is welcomed
given that an estimated 25% of ECGs are misinterpreted. Computers how-
ever are not yet ready to take over the diagnosis of heart disease as a major
part of the diagnosis procedure involves talking with the patient about their
symptoms and medical history - a skill not yet mastered by a computer.

Government Rejects 10% Pay Rise


For Doctors
The doctors and dentists review body has been told by the government that
there will be no extra funding for an increase in doctors pay. Current pay
levels are considered sufficient to recruit, retain and motivate doctors. Early
retirement amongst consultants is not believed to have caused concern. The Music student Andy Blair, of the Surrey student band Housewife.
