International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day is May 12: The World Will Know
Did you know that May 12 belongs to us? Lots of us are aware of this. We share the buzz on it amongst ourselves. We add blue ribbons to profile pictures. We raise our voices, join our hands, mount the few podiums available to us and tug at the sleeve of the rest of the world.

    I hope Newton is not too good for PLoS?

    It annoyed me when Mikovits complained about having lots of papers no one would publish. Particularly when the sloppily rushed but highly influential XMRV-negative study which first cast doubt over the WPI's findings was published by PLoS.

    Better to have it published in PLoS than not at all or with a major delay (some journals take over a year to publish).

    Sorry - I don't have 45 mins to spare! Can someone summarise it?

    Guidance for health professionals from Julia Newton sounds great. Hope it overrides that of Clare Gerada and Trudie Chalder :)eek:)

    (Probably a bit over-optimistic there)

    It would be great if we could have more people attending conferences like these and reporting back for PR, perhaps in the form of a short article (it certainly needn't be as long as one of mine!). We can help to make any necessary arrangements and also help you prepare and write the article(s), and we can pay for article(s) and also pay some expenses for attending the conference. So if anyone's ever interested in doing this, please contact me.

    Cheers,

    Mark

    I'd be willing to do the newcastle one as long as my dictaphone doesn't cock up on the day
