Ginger biscuits without golden syrip?

I want to make some ginger biscuits today but golden syrup isn't sold where I live (Italy). Do you know of any recipes which don't use golden syrup, or anything I can use as a substitute for golden syrup?

Answer on Ginger biscuits without golden syrip?

Use honey..that's what my chef use to replace golden syrup.

I'm doing a science project on Galileo Galilei and I need help?

I am Galileo Galilei and I am the greatest scientist of all time. I improved the telescope, discovered Jupiter's four moons, observed the phases of Venus, supported Copernicanism and did many other things.
I was born in Pisa, Italy. I was the first of six children of Vincenzo Galilei, a famous lutenist and music theorist, and Giulia Ammannati. My full name is Galileo di Vincenzo Bonaiuti de' Galilei.
I never had a wife, however, I did have a brief relationship with Marina Gamba, a woman I met on one of my many trips to Venice. I had two daughters, Virginia and Livia, and had one son, Vincenzio. My two daughters were both put in convents where they became, respectively, Sister Maria Celeste and Sister Arcangela. In 1610, I moved from Padua to Florence where I took a position at the Court of the Medici family. I left my son with Marina Gamba. In 1613, Marina got married, and my son Vincenzio came to live with me. My belief in the Copernican System eventually got me into trouble with the Catholic Church. A committee of consultants declared to the to the Inquisition that the Copernican proposition that the Sun is the center of the universe was heresy. Because I supported the Copernican system, I was warned by Carinal Bellarmine, under order of Pope Paul V, that he should not discuss of defend Copernican theories. In 1624, I was assured by Pope Urban VIII that I could write about the Copernican theory as long as I treated it as a mathematical proposition. I was put under house arrest for the remainder of my life by the Inquisition because I was found guilty of having heresy for my Dialogue. In 1638 the Inquisition allowed me to move closer to my docters, but by that time, I was totally blind.
In 1581, I began studying at the University of Pisa, where my father hoped I would study medicine. When I was at the University of Pisa, I started to study the pendulum. But it wasn't until 1602 that I made my most notable discovery about the pendulum, the period does not depend on the arc of the swing. Eventually this led to my idea for the pendulum clock. In 1592, I was appointed professor of mathematics at the University of Padua. While I was teaching there, I frequently visited a place called Arsenal, where Venetian ships were docked and loaded. I was always interested in mechanical devices. During my visits to the Arsenal I became fascinated by nautical technologies, like the sector and shipbuilding. In 1593 I fixed the placement of oars in the galleys. I used the oar as a lever and correctly made the water the fulcrum. A year later I made a model for a pump. My pump was a device that raised water by using only one horse. I invented many more mechanical devices such as the hydrostatic balance. But my most famous invention was the telescope. Many people thought I invented the telescope, but I didn't, I only made it more advanced. I made my first telescope in 1609, and later that year I made another one that could magnify objects twenty times. With it, I could look at the moon, discover satellites of Jupiter, observe a supernova, verify the phases of Venus, and discover sunspots. My discoveries proved that the Copernican system was true.

Looks good to me and you nailed the Catholic church's part in imprisoning him for not thinking the way they wanted him to. So very different than today where they just stone people.
