SUES FORUM #12: 10/2020

In the current circumstances the plans we had to resume our traditional face-to-face events are unlikely to be implemented soon; we will have to wait for a marked relaxation in Covid-prevention measures to do that. However, we are determined to keep SUES going by providing what intellectual and educational stimulus for our members can be […]

SUES FORUM #11: 09/2020

We have had much discussion recently about the possibility of resuming talks and ultimately courses. However, regulatory restrictions, including frequent changes and modifications, have made this difficult. Our main article in this edition, therefore, is a statement of where we find ourselves at present. It is followed by a piece by John Sharp, which in […]

SUES FORUM #10: 08/2020

We are rather surprised but pleased to see that the Forum has got into double figures. When we started, we thought it would be a useful idea for keeping SUES together for a few weeks. However, as the crisis continues, we find ourselves committed to something that may have a lot longer to run yet. This edition […]

SUES FORUM #9: 07/2020

As the Forum has in the current situation replaced the newsletter, which was our main means of keeping you up-to-date, this is now the appropriate place to provide important information. The AGM has been held, albeit in an unusual format and the minutes are the first item in this edition. The bad news is that […]

SUES FORUM #7: 06/2020

After our last edition, a special poetry number, we return to a more conventional format. However, as we received more poems than we could print in one go, we will include one in each edition for the time being. This does not rule out having another poetry-only edition, but this time with members’ own efforts. […]

SUES FORUM #6: 06/2020

We had planned a different sort of Friday afternoon meeting for June, one in which members could bring poems which appealed to them and explain the reasons for their choices. Rather than lose this idea we have decided to do something similar through the medium of Forum. This is, therefore, a poetry edition.  Of course, […]

SUES FORUM #5: 05/2020

Doesn’t time fly when you are enjoying yourself! There have been a number of different responses to lock-down, but this is probably not one of them. However, some people have managed to keep themselves busy, and we are able to produce the fifth edition of our Forum. The first item, a book review, has an […]

SUES FORUM #3: 04/2020

We continue the SUES Forum with an attempt to broaden the scope of our material and start with a scientific item from Alan Potter on the chemical elements. This triggered off a memory of Tom Lehrer’s patter song on the same theme, so we have included some reference to the song and its author. Finally, […]
