New Humanist at How the Light Gets In philosophy festival

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly): rationalist.org.uk

We're involved in two events at How The Light Gets In, a philosophy and music festival in Hay-on-Wye from Friday 28th May to Sunday 6th June. The festival website has the full programme, featuring events with lots of big names, but here's the info on what we're doing. Our editor Caspar Melville is giving a talk in the aptly named "Talk Tent" on Sunday 30 May at 11:30am on "Being Human, Being Humanist":
How do humanists look at the value of life? Is living well without the comfort of a personal God and a transcendental worldview terrifying, or liberating? Editor of the combative New Humanist magazine Caspar Melville looks for answers without illusion."
"Combative" - we like it. If you fancy going along, you can book tickets on the website for just £4 each. Caspar's also doing another event, which is linked more closely to his earlier vocation as a music journalist. He'll be in converasation with DJ Ewan Pearson at 7pm on Sunday 30 May:

"Rave academic and editor of New Humanist Caspar Melville talks to intellectual DJ Ewan Pearson about beats and being, records and reason, ecstasy and existentialism, before Pearson’s highly anticipated DJ set."

Leave your miaow miaow at home kids...

Protein is important for muscle growth. Protein from your food is broken down into individual amino acids during digestion and absorption. The amino acids are then taken up by the body for various functions such as manufacturing tissue and the enzymes needed for metabolism. Everyone needs protein, but the needs of strength trainers are higher than those of endurance athletes.
