Posted in: , , , ,

Camilla Lisanti was asked how she would cure cancer, and the eight-year-old suggested using antibiotics, an idea which has turned out to have a lot of merit. Camilla was asked the question by her parents, a husband-wife cancer research team.

They were sceptical at first but went ahead to test out her theory in their Manchester University lab.

Posted in: , ,

Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me” has been proved to be a rip-off of Tom Petty’s “I Won’t Back Down” released to great acclaim back in 1989.

Tom Petty says of the agreement by both musicians to settle out of court;

"About the Sam Smith thing. Let me say I have never had any hard feelings toward Sam.  All my years of songwriting have shown me these things can happen.  Most times you catch it before it gets out the studio door but in this case it got by.  Sam’s people were very understanding of our predicament and we easily came to an agreement.
