The concluding chapter to 'Disguises' pits Catwoman against crooked cops, a crooked system, and one good cop. While Detective Allen tries to take Catwoman down, Holly finds herself the object of a massive manhunt. And, at the end of the day, our hero can only stop the symptom, not the disease that's rotting out the ranks of the Gotham police. At last, the player behind it all is revealed.

The Home Affairs Committee reports that well-designed legislation which regulates and restricts the legal supply of firearms can help to reduce gun crime. The committee recognises that thousands of people use firearms responsibly for recreation and in their work. It has no intention of restricting such activity. However, the committee today concludes that interpreting and applying the current 34 pieces of legislation governing the control of firearms places an "onerous burden" on the police and on members of the public who wish to abide by the law, because it is "so complex and confused". In particular, the committee recommends introducing one licensing system to cover all firearms which require a licence and identifies age restrictions on firearms use as a particular area of uncertainty. Although the majority of firearms-related crimes are not committed with licensed firearms, the committee is also concerned about the use of legally-owned weapons in domestic shootings, including those related to domestic abuse. The Committee has several recommendations including: a review of the minimum age limits on the use of firearms and eligibility for firearms certificates; recommends tighter restrictions and clearer guidance to the police on the granting of firearms and shotgun licences to individuals who have engaged in criminal activity; considering requiring the police to consult the domestic partners of licence applicants in making the decision as to whether to grant a licence; suggests that the Government considers requiring advocates raising the fees charged to applicants so that it covers the costs of licensing, to ensure that police spending cuts do not jeopardise the rigour of the licensing process. Finally, the committee was concerned at evidence of the significant criminal threat posed by reactivated and converted firearms, in response to tighter regulations on genuine lethal weapons.

The ICMS Developer's Meeting is an international congress for which the main theme is mathematical software. The 2010 meeting was the third of a series of meetings of similar theme, the ?rst being held in Beijing, China in 2002,and the second in Castro-Urdiales, Spain in 2006. The ?eld of mathematics has numerous branches, and in each branch we ?nd that algorithms, and also implementations and applications of software s- tems, are studied. Researchers who endeavor to make such studies also have international meetings within their speci'c branches of mathematics, and these meetings have made signi'cant contributions to the ?elds in which they lie. The ICMS (International Congresseson Mathematical Software), on the other hand, is a general (not branch speci'c) meeting on mathematical software, which is held every four years, and is a rare opportunity for developers of mathematical softwarefrom di'erent branchesof mathematics, as well as mathematicians who are interested in mathematical software, to gather together.

Since 2008, the Global Center of Excellence (COE) at Kyoto University, Japan, has been engaged in a program called “Energy Science in the Age of Global Warming—Toward a CO2 Zero-Emission Energy System.” Its aim is to establish an international education and research platform to foster educators, researchers, and policy makers who can develop technologies and propose policies for establishing a CO2 zero-emission society no longer dependent on fossil fuels. It is well known that the energy problem cannot simply be labeled a technological one, as it is also deeply involved with social and economic issues. The establishment of a “low-carbon energy science” as an interdisciplinary field integrating social sciences with natural sciences is necessary. The Global COE is setting out a zero-emission technology roadmap and is promoting socioeconomic studies of energy, studies of new technologies for renewable energies, and research for advanced nuclear energy. It has also established the Global COE Unit for Energy Science Education to support young researchers as they apply their skills and knowledge and a broad international perspective to respond to issues of energy and the environment in our societies. Comprising the proceedings of the Second International Symposium of the Global COE Program, this book follows on the earlier volume Zero-Carbon Energy Kyoto 2009, published in March 2010.

The Department for Transport is eighteen months into a five-year, £9 billion investment programme to improve rail travel, in particular by increasing the number of passenger places on trains by March 2014. The Department's latest plans show that all the relevant targets will be missed. There will be 15 per cent fewer extra places delivered in London in the morning peak and 33 per cent fewer into other major cities, compared to the numbers the Department stated would be needed just to hold overcrowding at current levels. The Committee is concerned that the failure to meet the targets set will lead to substantial increases in already unacceptable overcrowding levels by 2014 and beyond. Rising demand for rail travel combined with serious cuts in public expenditure make it imperative that the rail industry becomes more efficient, otherwise the passenger will suffer. The Department says that levels of crowding, and ticket prices, depend on policy decisions about the level of government subsidy, but this ignores the scope for efficiency savings to release resources for front line services. The industry's ability to provide a good quality rail service, including acceptable levels of crowding, depends crucially on the efficiency of all players in the rail industry, and of Network Rail in particular. Rail infrastructure costs more in Great Britain than in other countries, and there is a large potential for Network Rail to improve its efficiency. The Office of Rail Regulation should be challenging Network Rail's efficiency at a detailed level.

This report considers the experience of some three years of holding 'pre-appointment' hearings by select committees to examine the 'preferred candidate' for certain public appointments before that appointment is confirmed. Whilst the committee considers the experiment a success they do recommend a number of changes. They propose a three tier list: Posts in the first tier are those considered to be of sufficient constitutional significance as to require a process which is effectively a joint appointment by Government and the House of Commons. Posts in the second tier are those which the committee proposes should be subject to an enhanced an improved version of the current process, and which should be subject to an 'effective veto' by the House of Commons or its committees. For posts in the third tier, pre-appointment hearings should be at the discretion of committees.

The focus of this report is Baroness Uddin's use of the Members' Reimbursement Scheme from May 2005 onwards, regarding her designation of three successive properties - in Frinton on Sea, Maidstone and Wapping, London - as her main residence. The last of these, designated on 1 January 2010, has been Lady Uddin's family home since 1993. The Sub-committee on Lords' Conduct found that Lady Uddin's interpretation of "main residence" was unreasonable. The designation of the Frinton and Maidstone properties was a deliberate misrepresentation of her position and the travel claims were made with the intention of substantiating her designation of her main residences. In total, the Sub-committee calculated that she wrongly claimed £125,349.10 over the period in question. Lady Uddin appealed to the full Committee against the Sub-committee's findings and recommendations. The Committee upholds the finding on the sum wrongly claimed, and recommends that she makes a personal statement of apology to the House and is then suspended from the House for three years or until she has repaid the sum wrongly claimed, whichever is the later.

For the past three years, the Committee has conducted an annual evidence session with the Chairman and Chief Executive of Channel four Television Corporation because as a statutory corporation it is accountable to Parliament for the delivery of its statutory remit. This year was a significant moment in Channel 4's history. The enactment of the Digital Economy Act at the end of the last Parliament amended the Communications Act 2003 to give Channel 4 a new and expanded remit and duties. A new management team was also put in place. The Committee agrees that the Digital Economy Act sets out sensible primary functions for Channel 4 to work towards and that Channel 4 has identified the correct method-self-reliance-to deliver them. Aligning all its portfolio of channels in support of these primary functions will not be easy, and it is essential that there is adequate external scrutiny of Channel 4's progress. The Committee welcomes recent draft guidance from Ofcom to establish a regime for establishing, monitoring, reviewing and enforcing public service-related obligations for Channel 4 across its network. However, Ofcom's ability to police Channel 4's new remit is limited, and the Committee is not convinced that Channel 4 is sufficiently accountable for its output outside its core channel. The Committee questioned the new management team on its remuneration policy, and the size of the final remuneration that outgoing Chief Executive Mr Duncan received. The Committee also urges Channel 4 to redouble its efforts to increase the proportion of UK-originated commissioning from the nations and regions. It proposes that Channel 4 set a medium term target of 15% of network spend on originated programming coming from the nations
