The Weight of a Thousand Feathers by Brian Conagan

The Weight of a Thousand Feathers by Brian Conagan

Angry, stirring and tender, this is a bold, questioning exploration of the lengths to which we’ll go for the people we love. From the Costa Children’s Book Award winning author of When Mr Dog Bites and The Bombs That Brought Us Together. Bobby Seed has questions. What’s another word for ‘thesaurus’? How can I tell Bel I want her as my girl friend, not my girlfriend? How much pain is Mum in today? Has she taken her pills? And sometimes, secretly, Why us? Bobby’s little brother Danny has questions too. Will Bobby let him have Rice Krispies for dinner? And can he stay up late on the computer? And why won’t Mum’s stupid illness just GO AWAY? But it’s Mum’s question for Bobby that could turn everything on its head. It’s the Big One. The Unthinkable One. If Bobby agrees, he won’t just be soothing her pain. He’ll be helping to end it. Would he? Could he? Perfect for readers of Patrick Ness and Malorie Blackman.

Cosmetics ARE NOT tested on animals

Cosmetics ARE NOT tested on animals

An internet quiz by Understanding Animal Research of over 4,000 people has revealed that only 38% of respondents are aware that it is illegal to test cosmetics or their ingredients on animals in the UK. The UK ended this practice in 1998 and a 2013 EU-wide ban means that it illegal for any cosmetic product to be sold in any EU country if either the product or its ingredients are tested on animals This film shows people on the street being asked about animals and cosmetics. http://www.understandinganimalresearch.org.uk/news/communications-media/british-public-misled-over-cosmetic-tests/ Respondents were asked to select from a list which shops they believed used animals to test the cosmetic products they sold in the UK. Boots, Tesco and Sainsbury’s were all picked by over 40% of people; The Body Shop was selected by 30% and Lush by 14%. Understanding Animal Research has written to all major supermarkets and cosmetic retailers, urging them to put additional information in their stores to help inform the public. It was not just cosmetic testing which stumped members of the public. When asked to identify which of a range of medicines used animals in their development, only 43% correctly recognised that animals were key to the development of all of them, including: vaccines (such as polio, meningitis and HPV), antibiotics, anaesthetics and asthma inhalers. Wendy Jarrett, CEO of Understanding Animal Research, said: “The proliferation of ‘Not tested on animals’ or ‘Cruelty-Free’ logos has led many to believe that other cosmetic products sold on the UK market are tested on animals – something which has not been the case for 18 years. While animals continue to play a small but key role in medical developments, the UK has successfully eliminated such testing for cosmetics and, more recently, household products.” For more information, check out our overview on UK and EU law. EU Regulation 1223/2009, banned both the testing of cosmetics or their ingredients on animals, and the import and sale of such products from abroad. However, most ingredients will have been tested at some point in the past. While the EU, and many other countries, have banned tests on cosmetics or their ingredients, some countries still require cosmetics to undergo animal tests for regulatory purposes. The UK Government is working with regulators in other countries to support them in moving away from cosmetic tests on animals.
