Cafe Scientifique Special

A Scientist in Wonderland – A scientific look at alternative medicine

Prof Ernst will talk about research in alternative medicine. He has conducted research in this field for 20 years and will provide thought-provoking insights into his results, experiences and conclusions. He co-authored the best selling book “Trick or Treatment” along with Simon Singh, which critically examined the claims of homeopathy and chiropractic manipulation. His new book is “A scientist in wonderland”.
Edzard Ernst is an academic physician and researcher specializing in the study of complementary and alternative medicine.
He was appointed Professor of Complementary Medicine at the University of Exeter, the first such academic position in the world.
He served as chairman of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the University of Vienna but left this position in 1993 to set up the department of Complementary Medicine at the University of Exeter.
He became director of complementary medicine of the Peninsula Medical School in 2002. Ernst was the first occupant of the Laing chair in Complementary Medicine, retiring in 2011.
Edzard’s writing appeared in a regular column in The Guardian where he reviewed news stories about complementary medicine from an evidence based perspective. Since his research began he has been seen as “the scourge of alternative medicine” for publishing critical research that exposes methods that lack documentation of efficacy.

Andrew Duhon

+Mike Newsham

Andrew Duhon - UK Tour - handbill draft

Andrew Duhon is a songwriter from New Orleans, a teller of stories with an undeniable voice, weighted and soulful. Duhon has released 3 recordings, the latest of which, ‘The Moorings’, was nominated for a Grammy in 2014 for ‘Best Engineered Album’. He has toured solo for much of his career, and that troubadour element is certainly present, an usher of modern day folklore.

Getting the buzz about city (wild)life

Urban landscapes are home to many types of animal, but it’s not all pests and pigeons! City planting can support a range of bees and insects. With current global declines seen in many pollinator species, what role might cities have in supporting these critical creatures? And how do we help?
Linda Birkin is a PhD researcher at the University of Sussex, Goulson Lab. She is looking into the provision of pollination services in urban ecosystems, the demand and the existing supply, and how to harness the potential pool of volunteer observers present in cities to record this data. She is particularly interested in the development of “Citizen Science” in monitoring programmes, and is the coordinator of the Bees ‘n Beans family of projects, now in their second year of activity across the UK.

Lupine Collies

+ No Fixed Abode

mask 3

Join us in in July for our new show – an evening of distorted acoustica, golden bass lines and fiery beats entwined in a languid honeysuckle and clinging rose of narrative images; imagine 2 large mirrors facing each other in clearing in an English wood where Jacques Brel sings Nirvana covers into a mandolin connected to an echochamber backed by a slick rhythm section consisting entirely of foxes.

Treasure – These guys really suck but the dude leaving is in the band so they get to play some space porn on the night.

Team New Band – Our lovely semi-tour buddies from June. We love their tunes and their pleasantness. They rock the shit.

Hanz Rollo – Some oftentimes 6/8 dark rock’n’roll madness from the gut. We hear this will be a special three piece version of their high-pitched, sexy guitar world. Exciting.
