    DMGT, the owner of the Daily Mail, has branched into scientific publishing by buying the title New Scientist from a group of investors for £70m in cash. The publication has a weekly circulation of about 120,000 copies, about half of which is in the UK. New Scientist derives about three-quarters of its revenue from subscriptions. The business is forecast to generate operating profit of about £7m this year, with sales exceeding £20m. The publication showcases the “best of science journalism”, Lord Rothermere, chairman of DMGT, said on Wednesday in a statement.

      Oh, New Scientists!

      My father, who was a physicist, collects them. The house was full of them, as he is a hoarder. They "might be worth something" he always said.

      But I found out they weren't worth anything. They have no resale value.

      An elegent solution was for me to pretend to sell them in bulk on Ebay, using my mate's Ebay account as the seller, and my account as the "buyer".

      It worked, and I was able to offload literally a metric tonne of that wretched paper to the local dump, generating a cash sum "profit" that I gave my Dad. Paper, yes, but much less voluminous.

      But my mate, seeing the opportunity to make a bit of money, got a third guy to bid the thing up to £500 knowing that I would always bid against him!

      (ok that last line is a lie. But he could have done it! )

              I used to be a subscriber, back when I was in college. Haven't read it in a long time but I did always like their reporting style as it was a more accessible but respectable way to access trends in science.

                    So the i and Metro have been ruined by the DM owning them?

                    The slaver seems to be going fine.
