University of Exeter to Cut Chemistry

You will not be able to get a degree in Chemistry from this institution: http://pubs.acs.org/cen/news/8248/8248exeter.html
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex

I read about this in TCE, an IChemE periodical. It highlights the lack of sufficient funding for chemistry department, even if the university originates from a developed country such as the United Kingdom. Chemistry is an important science. There ought to be more higher education funding from the government into universities.
"Say you're in a [chemical] plant and there's a snake on the floor. What are you going to do? Call a consultant? Get a meeting together to talk about which color is the snake? Employees should do one thing: walk over there and you step on the friggin� snake." - Jean-Pierre Garnier, CEO of Glaxosmithkline, June 2006
