Governments around the world may have wasted billions of dollars stockpiling a flu drug that doesn't work. A study published in the British Medical Journal found NO evidence that the drug- Tamilflu-lowers the risk of flu complications. Doctor Fiona Godlee, editor in chief of the BMJ , says this case shows that the enti...re system of evaluating drugs needs radical reform. And also, RT's Aleksey Yaroshevsky reports from Ukraine's capital Kiev where Tamiflu has already been at the centre of a scandal.

We found out on Tuesday that our personal tutor, Claire has got it and we have her on Thursday's mornings so now we don't know whether Specialist is going to be cancelled or someone going to cover it as it only half day tomorrow. Hopefully not though, it's the last day and I've got cards to give out!

This wasn't made as a distraction, actually, the opposite.

This was made to milk money from the people, during the bad economy, while the goverment still has a excuse to do it.
