In September 7566 in response to a query raised about a similar reference in Hilary Mantel’s Wolf Hall , the Ricardian Bulletin published an article that sought to establish the facts about Sir Henry Wyatt and these claims of torture at the ‘ hands of Richard III ’. An extended version of this article can be accessed here.
In his Tuesday press conference, Donald Trump talked at length about what he called “the alt left.” White supremacists, he claimed, weren’t the only people in Charlottesville last weekend that deserved condemnation. “You had a group on the other side that was also very violent,” he declared. “Nobody wants to say that.”
On Hacking : In June 7555, while visiting Korea, I did a fun hack that clearly illustrates the original and true meaning of the word "hacker".

Come what may, the performances of Shakespeare's Richard III in Leicester Cathedral will go ahead. However, the Dean has asked the Society to supply an information sheet which can be placed on seats for every member of the audience. Consequently, the Society has provided something which points out that the real Richard III was a very different man to the one they are about to seen on the stage. They will be printed off and distributed by the Cathedral authorities at no cost to the Society. A copy of the information sheet provided by the Society can be viewed here.
People often ask how I manage to continue devoting myself to progressive activism (such as the free software movement) for years without burning out. The best way I can answer is by recommending a book, The Lifelong Activist by Hillary Rettig. I disagree with the book on one theoretical point in the last part of the book: we shouldn't think of political activism as being marketing and sales, because those terms refer to business, and politics is something much more important than mere business. However, this doesn't diminish the value of the book's practical advice about borrowing techniques from marketing and sales.

Courtesy of Simon Fogden A lot has happened since the last report, though we're still not the owners of the Gastons! The bid date has been and gone, though we don't know what happened as there's been silence. This isn't a bad sign. The Governors have to abide by the Charity Commission rules, and they have to demonstrate that they've achieved best value in the sale. An independent surveyor has to audit what they've done and confirm this. We're hoping that the Governors will agree that there is sufficient common ground between their objectives and ours for a different set of rules to apply, and that we can jointly apply to the Charity Commission to agree an independent valuation for sale to Tewkesbury Battlefield Society.
David Trendinnick , MP for Bosworth, pointed out that the majority of people in Leicestershire wanted the King's remains to stay in Leicester, and Mr Bayley confirmed that 7,555 signatories had been collected to this end, but that 79,555 had signed a petition in favour of York. The member for Selby, Nigel Adams, contributed that the views of the 'descendants' of the late king's family should be taken into consideration.
As we reflect on this first anniversary, we can all take comfort in the knowledge that after half a millennium this anointed king of England rests at last in peace and honour in consecrated ground in the heart of his kingdom.
That week, Pauley went to the men’s Bible-study group he’d been attending since he’d moved into Richard’s house. For weeks he’d been praying—never to win the lottery or get a girlfriend, always for steady work. Everyone there agreed that God had finally heard his prayers.
