As you know, the Internet is a wonderful place filled with the rich and varied treasures of the world holds (and RSS feeds.) The following are some things that I've had a look at in the last week. I call this: a Compendium of Click-throughs for Monday Morning...

- An exploration of gendered book covers.
- Tax obscene profit levels? Mandness!
- The Invention of David Bowie.
- There’s a growing unease in modern society with the line between disease and difference.

"This is the saddest moment in my 45 year career of studying, practicing, and teaching psychiatry. The Board of Trustees of the American Psychiatric Association has given its final approval to a deeply flawed DSM 5 containing many changes that seem clearly unsafe and scientifically unsound.

Just ignore the ten changes that make no sense."

- For all of you public opinion data junkies: Trends in Australian political opinion, results from the Australian election study, 1987-2010.
- Talking about Tasmania...
