New York – There has been a 20% reduction in the number of smokers amongst teenagers over last 5 years according to a new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
This has been attributed to an increase in television, newspaper and magazine ads directed toward young people which educated them on the health risks associated with smoking. There also been improved anti-smoking educational materials developed for school programs and these have also helped to reduce smoking in teens.
A large part of these plans has been paid by settlements reached between state governments and tobacco companies in lawsuits brought within the last decade. A total of $306 billion dollars has been paid by the tobacco companies.

Max Davison learns how to find his way using only stars, sun, trees and wind
“Take the Circle, District or piccadilly line to South Kensington, then walk up Exhibition Road. It will take you between 10 and 15 minutes. The Royal Geographical Society is on the junction between Exhibition Road and kensington Gore.” The instructions are so idiot-proof that at 9 am precisely all seven of us are in our places, like expectant schoolchildren.
A man in a check suit, with a bearly trimmed beard, enters and introduces himself. “Tristan Gooley. Welcome.” He flashes a shy smile. “ Just to put this all into context, I think I can safely say that you are the only people in the world studying this particular topic today.” It is quite an intro. There are a few oohs and ahs from the audience. Tristan Gooley, navigator extraordiniary, has his audience in the palm of his hand. We are here because we are curious about how to get from A to B, who better to ask than Tristan Goley? He is the only man alive who has both flown and sailed solo across the Atlantic. You can’t argue with that of CV.
“Natural navigator”, his new baby, is exacty what that phrase suggests: route-finding that depends in intergreting natural signs – the sun, the stars, the direction of the wind, the alignment of the trees-rather than using maps, compasses or the ubiquitous satnav. ‘of course, 99,9 per cent of the time, you will have other ways of finding wherever it is you want to get to. But if you don’t…’ Gooley pauses theatrically, ‘there is a lot to be said foe understanding the science of navigation and direction-finding. If people become too dependent on technology, they can lose connection with nature, which is a pity.’
The natural navigator’s best friend, inevitably, is the sun. We all know that it rises in the east, sets in the west and at its zenith, is due south. But if it is, say, three in the afternoon and yoou are lost in the desert, how do you get your bearings? The answer, says Gooley, is to find a stick. By noting the different places where its shadow falls over a short period of time, you will quickly locate the east-west axis. “the sun influences things even if you can’t see it.” He explains. You might not be in the desert, but walkinh along a forest track in Britain. One side of the track is darker in colour than the other. “Ah-ha!” thinks the natural navigator. “ It is darker because it is shaded by the trees, which means that south is that way.” You can now stridde confidently southwards – or on whichever direction you wich to head – without fiddling with a map.
As the day wears on, the detctive work forces is to look at the world in new and unexpected ways. Just when we think we are getting the hang of it, Gooley sets us a particular difficult task. A photograph of a house comes up on the screen. An orange sun is peeping over the horizon behind the house. There is a tree in the foreground. “Just study the picturefor a few minutes,” Gooley says “ and tell me in which direction the photographer is pointing the camera.” Tricky. Very tricky. Is the sun rising or setting? Is the tree growing straight up or leaning to the right? Is that star twinkling over the chimney? Are we in the northern or southern hemisphere? “South-east,” I say firmly, having analysed the data in minute detail. “Not quite.” “Am I close?” “Not really. The answer is north-west.” Ah well. Only 180 degrees out.
Still, if I am bottom of the class, I have caught the natural navigation bug. What a fascinating science, both mysterious and universal. It is hardly what you would call a practical skill: therre are too many man-made aids to navigation at our disposal. But it connects us, thrillingly, to the world around us – and to those long-dead ancestors who circles the globewith nothing but stars to guide them. It reminds us what it means to be human.
