Why are there still so few black scientists in the UK?
There have been many reports but little action: UK university science departments need to do more to fix their serious diversity problem‘Not built for minorities to succeed’: black scientists on academia’s race problemThe Nobel laureate poet Sir Derek Walcott once said that the English language is nobody’s special property: “It is the property of the imagination.” Much the same could be said for science. It should be said. Except this isn’t quite so. Not yet.Data on who is doing science has recently been released by the Royal Society, the UK’s premier scientific academy, using figures from the Higher Education Statistics Agency, whose data is by far the most systematic. The numbers show that in 2018-19, 19.2% of science, technology, engineering and maths academic staff aged 34 and under are Asian and 1.8% are black. In physics and chemistry, the proportion of black researchers stands at a sobering zero, rounded down, as these calculations do for ease of presentation, from literally one or two individuals. What’s interesting is that these small figures decrease further as a scientist’s age increases – as they travel through the hallowed halls of academia to become senior scientists. So while the UK has 10,560 science professors who are white, only 960 are Asian, 310 mixed and “other” and 65 black. This says that minorities who enter science are less likely to get promoted. Fewer of them go on to become those experts who evaluate which next-generation scientists should then get the training, the money and the jobs. “Unless this changes,” the Royal Society says, “there will be unbalanced representation of academic staff between ethnic groups working in higher education in comparison to the ethnic breakdown of the general population.” Continue reading...

With a new skipper at the helm, Intel heads for uncharted waters | John Naughton
The computer processor firm lost its way in recent years, but is now aiming to capitalise on the US and EU’s drive for digital sovereigntyIt’s a truism that it takes a long time for a supertanker to change course; even if the captain spots trouble ahead it may be too late to avoid it. For the last few years, that’s the metaphor that has come to mind whenever Intel was mentioned. For as long as most of us can remember, it has been the lumbering supertanker of the silicon chip business because its central processing units (CPUs) powered most computers.But from 2007 onwards, when smartphones, which are really just handheld computers, arrived, that world began to change and dominance in the CPU business passed to the Cambridge company Arm, which designed CPUs that were smaller and consumed far less power than their predecessors. Intel, like its erstwhile partner, Microsoft, seemed lost in this new environment; they were like two supertankers drifting aimlessly while continuing to make comfortable profits from their legacy businesses. Watching the apparently relentless growth of Arm, and Intel’s flailing attempts to make progress (including in areas such as semiconductor lithography, the physical and chemical processes needed to etch circuits on silicon, which should have been a core competency), it was hard to see a future for it except one of inexorable decline.

Invisible Music by Polly Paulusma review – a vibrant celebration of Angela Carter the folkie
(Wild Sound/One Little Independent)The novelist’s little known early days on the folk scene are explored on this album of songs and readingsThe folk-singing interests of the novelist Angela Carter are usually confined to the margins of literary commentary, but alongside her first husband the mistress of magical realism was an ardent enthusiast of traditional song. The pair ran a folk club and made field recordings of voices such as “tinker singer” Davey Stewart, from whom Carter claimed you could “learn more about style than from books”. She herself sang and played concertina.The singer-songwriter Polly Paulusma, on this her eighth album, explores the connections between Angela the folkie and Carter the feted novelist – Paulusma recently completed a PhD on the subject. On offer are antique ballads such as Reynardine and The Streams of Lovely Nancy, some delivered a cappella with an admirably light touch, others to bass, fiddle, bodhrán and guitar. The songs are interspersed with readings of Carter’s work by Paulusma, the singer Kathryn Williams and novelist Kirsty Logan. Continue reading...

The Amsterdam docklands home brought back to life
Skip finds and repurposed antiques live again in this nostalgic Dutch homeHelma Bongenaar is an original. Her belief that “it is not necessary to buy new things” comes from a passion for old crafts and her reasoning that there are plenty of abandoned materials that can be reused. “We do not have a lot of money, but we do have grand taste, so we look for affordable and practical solutions,” she says. “We love to skip-dive, which mortified our children when they were young.”Step into Bongenaar’s building on the corner of a stylish street in the eastern docklands of Amsterdam, past chic Scandi clothing stores, cheese and coffee shops and an obligatory brown café, and you will find a home designed from other people’s debris and secondhand finds.
