Does the recognisability of a place make it a more desirable place to live? That's the theory that a group of researchers from Cambridge University and Brazil's Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais are trying to put to the test. Their method is the creation of Urbanopticon – a game which puts the recognisability of London's streets to the test by picking up random locations from Google Street View and testing users to see if they can judge the location (or borough/Tube station) solely by landmarks/brick types and so on.

There are some lessons publishers never learn. When presenting a new author, editors have long been unable to avoid slipping in a phrase calculated to get up the noses of many in the room: "Of course, it doesn't hurt that he or (she) is very easy on the eye!" Simon & Schuster may not be guilty of such tactics, but that images of Benjamin Wood's beautiful hair and long eyelashes are becoming familiar is probably not regarded as a sales disincentive. But can this Lancashire-born creative-writing lecturer deliver the goods? Is The Bellwether Revivals worthy of the hype?

An "unholy mess" is how a joint editorial in the British Medical Journal, the Health Service Journal and the Nursing Times describes the effects of the Government's reforms of the NHS this week.
