This week we look find out how prophecy predicts the Pope’s resignation could signal the destruction of Rome, we reflect on the Pope’s use of Twitter, discover when 4G phones are going to happen – and if the networks are going to continue to rip us off, as well as hear about how school kids are standing up for LGBT people. And more!

This week we find out about the counter campaign to the awful Coalition For Marriage, discover how religious extremists are targeting university campuses to recruit students, find out if the government’s new alcohol advice stands up to scrutiny and reminisce about 2000AD at 25. We also come closer to answering the age-old question… are the colours we perceive the same as the colours other people do?
