Gresham College was founded in 1557 under the will of Sir Thomas Gresham for the purpose of providing free public lectures of a high academic standard. We continue to fulfill this role, with lectures at Barnard's Inn and the Museum of London, although we have dropped the original obligation to repeat each lecture in Latin. All lectures are streamed on line on the Gresham College Facebook page and via the Gresham College website. Past lectures and written transcripts are on the website for viewing and free download. Think of Gresham College as London's version of Ted Talks.

Strong results from Northern Bear (LON:NTBR) yet Thompson Reuters headline their note "BRIEF-Northern Bear H1 Pretax Profit Down About 18.8 Pct". Must be an error - if the market believes them it could be a buying opportunity until corrected. I hold.

Interesting RNS from EMIS (LON:EMIS) this morning, about the aquisition of the Healthcare Blockchain startup Dovetail Labs. (No position).
