People who drink more coffee – even decaffeinated – are less likely to develop liver cancer, an analysis of data from 26 studies has found.
For those who drank two cups of coffee a day, the risk of hepatocellular cancer was reduced by 35% compared to those who drank no coffee

Breaking News: Abe Vigoda, the sad-faced actor who emerged from a workmanlike stage career to find belated fame in the 1970s as the earnest mobster Tessio in "The Godfather" and the dyspeptic Detective Phil Fish on “Barney Miller,” died on Tuesday.

《末代港督》論述北京和倫敦的角力,精彩非常。首相和外相支持港督,但外交官出身的兩位前港督麥里浩男爵和衛奕信男爵則在上議院力陳彭定康公然與北京對抗之弊,熟諳中國事務、曾任駐華大使的柯利達爵士更連珠炮發,多次公開表示彭定康不應拂逆中方意願,推行九七後必遭推倒重來的政改方案,是不稱職(incompetent)的表現。彭定康立法局的反駁,亦甚優雅:
我認為香港人染上一種在英國稱為柯利達症的流行病,這種病並不單止對「性情憂鬱的退休大使」有所影響,其影響顯然較為廣遠。此病有多種成因和徵狀。患者往往認為自己才具有美德,自己方知曉香港應怎樣做才對,自己才關注那些令香港變成那麼獨特的事物,並認為除非別人都贊同你的意見,附和你的分析,否則,對香港來說,只有死路一條。除非別人常常同意你的見解,否則香港便劫數難逃。這些都是這種流行病的徵狀。
(I think that we suffer in Hong Kong from an epidemic of what we call at home, Craddockitis, and it is something which affects not just dyspeptic retired ambassadors; it clearly goes wider than that. And there are a number of ingredients to the disease, a number of symptoms. There is a belief that one has a monopoly of virtue, a belief that one has a monopoly of wisdom about what is right for Hong Kong, a belief that one has a monopoly of concern about the things which have made Hong Kong so special, and a belief that unless everybody else agrees with you and follows your own analysis, that, as far as Hong Kong is concerned, is the end of the road. Hong Kong is doomed unless people always agree with you. Those are some of the symptoms of this epidemic.)
