Just heard about this project on the BBC News this morning. “According to non-profit organisation World Wide Hearing, fewer than one in 40 people who need hearing aids in developing countries can afford them.”
A two-part excellent podcast on the effects of sound on our health.
I’ve decided to disable the “comments” option on all of the postings on this website. This should not delete the existing comments – but new ones will not be possible in the future. This will happen over the coming days. I have a number of reasons for this, but mostly, it’s because I am increasingly trying to disconnect from my computer and phone – and curating / moderating comments on a website is one of the easier tasks to drop.
If you have specific questions about things I have written here, you are welcome to email me. However, I cannot promise that the reply will be rapid, since I’m also trying to disconnect from my email more and more…
