London Calling at 40: How The Clash shattered punk orthodoxy and created a masterpiece

As The Clash’s seminal third album is celebrated in a new exhibition, Chris Harvey reflects on its anger, humour and swaggering grandeur Martin Scorsese once described “Janie Jones” by The Clash as the greatest British rock’n’roll song. One of the many wonderful things about that statement, not lost on Clash fans, is that however charged-up-and-ready-to-blow the opening track of the band’s eponymous 1977 debut album is, it’s not even the greatest Clash song; hell, it’s not even the greatest opening track on a Clash album. There’s serious competition for that accolade on each of their studio albums, but the title track of London Calling fights off all comers. Its ringing apocalyptic alarm announced the most extraordinary album of the late Seventies, which, almost unbelievably, was released 40 years ago next month on 14 December. It’s even being celebrated in its own exhibition at the Museum of London. London Calling landed at the close of an extraordinary year in Britain. In 1979, Margaret Thatcher won her first Tory majority, ending the era of post-war consensus politics, and replacing it with a no-compromise, anti-protectionist, monetarist regime that would preside over denatio...

Pharmaceutical granulation is a common technique for solid oral drug production, whether as tablets, capsules or

Pharmaceutical granulation is a common technique for solid oral drug production, whether as tablets, capsules or granules for use in bottles or sachets. Multiple granulation methodologies can be used to address the requirements of a wide range of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API), irrespective of potency. Granulation combines individual formulation components (API, diluents, binders, disintegrants) into a single uniform particle. The various techniques include wet granulation; dry granulation; fluid bed granulation; and hot melt granulation. Granulation is of benefit when overcoming challenges such as active content uniformity; densification of formulation; powder flow properties; compression properties; controlled API release profiles; and API bioavailability. Best practice granulation is performed using aqueous-based solutions, combined with appropriate investment in high quality, specialist granulation equipment including high shear mixers, one pot processors, roller compactors and fluid bed processors. Additional capability of high shear granulation and fluid bed processing allows production of high potent products (with an OEL down to 0.01 µg/m3). Containment perform...

Coronavirus and cars: Answering your commonly asked questions

The global coronavirus pandemic has placed most of the world, including the auto industry, into a state of constant flux. As manufacturers raise their hands to create life-saving ventilators and car dealers brace for a sales slowdown, many consumers are left pondering the practical repercussions of mandated social distancing rules. To prevent transmission of the virus, the government’s official advice is to maintain a 1.5-metre distance from other people and to avoid physical contact. That means, unless you’re the proud owner of a car with a 1.5-metre centre console (we could only think of the Ford F-350), it’s probably best you don’t have another person in your car at all, let alone in the front seat. If you must share a vehicle with someone, you should both avoid touching the same surfaces, avoid touching your faces and both wash your hands before and after getting in the vehicle. Disinfecting any touchpoints in the car is also advised. For this one, we tapped Michael Simon, the owner of premium automotive concierge service Carcierge, which is still carrying out maintenance services for its clients amid the crisis. “Prior to getting in the car, w...

‘The original owner of this splendid watch was an English pilot who flew the Sultan of

‘The original owner of this splendid watch was an English pilot who flew the Sultan of Oman and his entourage on one of his first state visits, from Muscat to Rome, on 28 March 1974,’ explains specialist Sabine Kegel, telling the story of this rare Rolex ‘Green Khanjar’ Daytona, offered in Geneva on May 15.  ‘The pilot has retired now, but when I met him at his home last year he recalled how, shortly before landing his aircraft at Ciampino airport, one of the Sultan’s ministers entered the cockpit. Holding out a small, cream and green box before him, he explained that he had been charged with proffering “a little present from the Sultan”.’ Inside the box was a watch from an exceedingly small series of so-called Green Khanjar Daytonas, bearing the symbol of the Sultanate of Oman — a traditional dagger, or khanjar, with a short, curved sword that was once a part of everyday attire in Oman, tucked beneath the waist belt. Made for the Sultan of Oman to be presented as a token of appreciation, fewer than 10 of these models in stainless-steel are known to exist. This pilot’s watch, bearing serial number 3’048’923, is believed to be the earliest Green Khanjar Daytona produced.  Rolex. ...
