Issue Five

Is boredom wrecking your life?

Issue 5: Is boredom wrecking your life?There’s nothing boring about our latest issue! See for yourself – April 2012 is kicking off with the release of Issue 5 of Guru Magazine.

As you may have guessed from the front cover, we’re tackling some pretty serious subject matter in Issue 5: we’re looking at the London Riots, and meeting with acclaimed director Albert Nerberg to discyss his forthcoming documentary Boredom – in which he claims that crime – including riots – is caused by … boredom.

As always with Guru, there’s a host of other topics too: Physics Guru James Lloyd takes a look at the best pop, rock and indie songs inspired by science, Evolution Guru Charlie Harvey channels some pet power and argues why dogs deserve to be man’s best friend, and Mind Guru Kim Lacey asks can cryogenics really give you second life?

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg (note the well-timed Titanic reference? It’s out in 3D apparently, in case you misses that one). Never far from controversy, Sceptic Guru Daryl Ilbury debunks the notion of morphic resonance, while the Technology and Art Gurus are feeling nostalgic and reveal how the technologies of yesterday are making the comeback. They’re not the only ones longing for a bit of old-school action – our Design Guru also reveals her favourite Vintage Gadgets!

But don’t keep listening to us talk about it – read Issue 5 for yourself, right now. It’s crowd-sourced, free and designed for everything digital. We don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
