I have just read a few articles by Johann Hari. He is a really interesting writer, one that seems to do what I call research based journalism. A rare form these days! this article that got sent to a friend who is an eating disorder psychologist at CHEO and this one, that discusses among other things the population imbalance in India, Pakistan and China where there are 108 men per hundred women (India), 111 per 100 (Pakistan) and 107 per 100 (China) and he wonders where those women went. I am sending this one to my boys.
They roll their eyes all the time when I tell them this stuff, so now I send them articles that they actually read. It is so fascinating to hear how they find these articles biased, particularly my youngest, while the rest of the news is not? Meanwhile he makes a list of items he wants that from the soccer sportswear magazines he reads since the gear has all been scientifically tested by the manufacturer!
