Eating disorders: NHS reports surge in hospital admissions | Society | The Guardian
They also warned that patchy coverage of services meant people were relocating and even selling their homes to get effective care. The Guardian heard from one young woman who had to relocate to Gloucestershire with her mother because she could not return home due to a lack of effective community support.

“What is clear is that the system is not working at the moment. What we desperately need is more money put into community services so people can get support close to home when they need it. This means we can intervene earlier and stop people ending up in hospital,” said Caroline Price, Beat’s director of services.

End austerity – and kickstart Martin Luther King’s revolution of values | Richard Kozul-Wright | Opinion | The Guardian
Hyperglobalisation has concentrated massive wealth in a few hands, boosting the cult of materialism that the great civil rights campaigner warned us about // Byung-Chul Han // The real threat now is to the underlying trust, cohesion and sense of fairness that markets depend upon in order to function effectively. Against this, insisting that “there is no alternative” is yesterday’s political slogan. People everywhere desire much the same thing: a decent job, a secure home, a safe environment, a better future for their children and a government that listens and responds to their concerns. They want a different deal from that offered by hyperglobalisation. Prosperity for all cannot be delivered by austerity-minded politicians, rent-seeking corporations and speculative bankers. What is urgently needed now is a global new deal. Three elements – recovery, regulation and redistribution – remain at the heart of any such deal. Book Richard Kozul-Wright is director of the globalisation and development strategies division in the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development. Its annual report, Beyond Austerity: Towards a Global New Deal, is published today

Overburdened NHS faces 'winter of woe', leading doctors warn | Society | The Guardian
A total of 181,692 bed days were lost in hospitals in England in July to “delayed transfers of care”, when patients are fit to leave but cannot be safely discharged. Prof Derek Alderson, the president of the Royal College of Surgeons, said hospitals’ ability to cope with the coming winter was at risk because so many beds were tied up with such patients. [...] A war of words between local councils and the NHS broke out on Thursday over who was to blame for the high number of patients trapped in hospital. [bc on both sides, money was not spend on care that was allocated but elsewhere to pluck holes] [...] It also emerged on Thursday that the number of written complaints about NHS services in England rose by 5% last year – with GPs a particular target of patients’ frustration.

Moray nurse warns that proposed changes could put lives at risk | Press and Journal
District nurses in NHS Grampian could come under management of GPs as part of changes to the organisation of community care being considered by health bosses.

The board believes the move, one of several options being considered, would result in a stronger link between patients and the GP responsible for their care.

Unions have held talks with management however after some staff raised fears it could lead to longer waits for patients receiving vital care due to piling the extra workload on already under-pressure doctors.

On top of that, stats say Britain is the loneliest country in the EU. Loneliness is such a big issue that it was even included in the Conservative, Labour and UKIP snap election manifestos.
But, why? And why are Britain’s young people bearing the brunt of it?

Donald Trump: Massendemos gegen den neuen US-Präsidenten - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Kaum ist Donald Trump vereidigt, protestieren weltweit Hunderttausende gegen den neuen US-Präsidenten: Allein in Washington gingen mehr als eine halbe Million Menschen auf die Straße. Doch die Zukunft des Widerstands ist unsicher. [...] Die Demokraten hoffen, dass der Protest in den kommenden Monaten und Jahren auch in politisches Engagement mündet. Die Partei muss sich neu organisieren, personell und strukturell. Eine emotionale Basis könnte die Arbeit erleichtern. Zudem stehen bald viele wichtige Senats- und Gouverneurswahlen an, die das Gleichgewicht in Washington verschieben könnten. Und je mobilisierter die Partei an der Basis ist, desto besser.

Why are YouTube stars so popular?
To non-fans, these tics can be irritating. The linguist Mark Liberman described them as an “intellectual used-car-salesman voice” akin to “high-energy sales pitches” or even a “carnival barker”.

But that’s another point about the popularity of YouTube’s stars: the way they divide fans from non-fans is a big part of their appeal too. [...] “Looking at survey comments and feedback, teens enjoy an intimate and authentic experience with YouTube celebrities, who aren’t subject to image strategies carefully orchestrated by PR pros. Teens also say they appreciate YouTube stars’ more candid sense of humour, lack of filter and risk-taking spirit, behaviours often curbed by Hollywood handlers.”

Government has no idea about Cancer Drugs Fund's impact, MPs say | Society | The Guardian
Department of Health and NHS England have insufficient data on patient outcomes or value for money, and little control over its spiralling budget, committee says [...] “The Department of Health and NHS England do not have the data needed to assess the impact of the fund on patient outcomes, such as extending patients’ lives, or to demonstrate whether this is a good use of taxpayers’ money.” The fund was set up in 2010 by the Conservative government because of the regular outcry from patient organisations and the media when cancer drugs, which typically offer potential weeks or months of extra life to those with a terminal diagnosis, were turned down by Nice, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence.

Wealthy areas 'getting cash aimed at poorer communities' - BBC News
[ when councils can not raise $ because there is no money $ then there needs to be redistribution. thus devolution praised to regenerate areas like the north, is a con trick. positioning. for votes. normal people don't read and think farther than headlines. ] Most of the money aimed at regenerating Scotland's most disadvantaged communities is going to wealthier areas, a report has said. The independent regeneration network, Surf, said current policies were increasing rather than reducing inequality. [...] The report said there was evidence that, following the financial crash of 2008, there was a trend of public and private sector capital being invested in Scotland's affluent areas and commercial centres with poorer areas missing out. It said that was damaging town centres and "secondary locations" such as Falkirk and Paisley. [...] fairer, wealthier and more successful place for everyone."

Edinburgh council 'optimistic' of no compulsory redundancies - BBC News
Edinburgh council leaders are "cautiously optimistic" they can shed 2,000 jobs in 12 months without the need for compulsory redundancies. The city's Labour/SNP coalition has identified £85m worth of savings to balance next year's budget. The proposals, which include selling off property as well as job cuts, will go before councillors next week. [...] The council admitted the cuts would damage services but insisted its priority was to protect the most vulnerable. [...] "We need to take action in order to achieve the necessary savings to meet this demand, and we are making every effort to do this in a way that will safeguard frontline services for the people of Edinburgh. "We want to invest in the services that are important to the public but must also look to rationalise our spending where appropriate."

Leslie Jamison: confessional writing is not self-indulgent | Books | The Guardian
[ no judgement. empathy. compassion. see Dr Gabor Mate Rich Roll Podcast #189 ] When they confessed things to me, these strangers were offering something but they were also asking for something. They were asking for the subject of the book itself: empathy. They wanted an enactment of its central principle, its primary call: to pay attention. Even when they didn't say they wanted this, I felt I owed it to them. The professor struggling with chronic headaches wasn't asking for anything, she was just offering a response: "I find the thing that wears you down the most is pain. To wake up and as you gain consciousness to feel the pain again, and wanting it to not be so, but yet it is, and having to face that reality hundreds, in my case thousands, of days in a row. It transforms you and disconnects you from everyone, even those who want to understand."

Part II: Is the Government fulfilling its role in the fight against cancer?
The scale of the challenge is apparent. I think we should be as bold and ambitious as possible: scientists, clinicians, patients, the general public and politicians all working together for a single goal: to eliminate cancer within a generation, and Britain at the forefront of this. [...] Patient experience has to be prioritised and this is difficult when NHS cancer services are under unprecedented pressure and the Government far too often provides contradictory messages. The Department of Health must provide the NHS with the resources and the long-term, holistic stability to allow Trusts to invest in state-of-the-art equipment. The NHS needs to emphasise prevention and early detection too, but the risk is that under greater financial and workforce pressure, cancer services will be forced to firefight.

Doctors, teachers, the police – public servants are demoralised | Will Hutton | Comment is free | The Guardian
To toil in the present-day NHS is thankless. [...] Whatever its merits, a workforce whose morale is already low sees it as yet more evidence that professionals’ views don’t count. Morale takes a further downward lurch. [...] Thus by 2020, the government will have imposed an unprecedented 10-year freeze in real pay across the public sector, shrunk its numbers by more than 1.5 million and offered as little upward career progression to public employees as it possibly can. A new industry of private contractors feeding off contracted-out public work will have been invented, offering even worse pay and conditions than the public sector itself. To raise taxes that might alleviate the crisis is ideologically prohibited. [...] Employees are voting with their feet. Between November 2013 and November 2014, 49,120 teachers quit – the highest rate on record. Nearly four in 10 newly qualified teachers leave after their first year.

Kolumne ǀ Vier Jahre nach Occupy — der Freitag
[ jeder fuer sich selbst ] Kolumne Die Occupy-Bewegung ist längst Vergangenheit. Die Ungleichheit jedoch wächst weiter. Vor allem, weil wir eine faire Gesellschaft immer noch dem Wachstum unterordnen [...] Warum ist es nötig, sich hinter vorgeblichen wirtschaftlichen Vorteilen einer faireren Gesellschaft zu verstecken? Warum ist Moral zur Begründung nicht genug? Sind wir nur bereit, Flüchtlingen zu helfen, wenn sie prima in unseren Arbeitsmarkt passen? Vier Jahre nach Occupy zählt immer noch vor allem anderen, was der Wirtschaft guttut. Deren Primat steht nicht in Frage.

He said: "If used appropriately, these powers could give local economies a welcome boost and it will be interesting to see how many hard-pressed councils will be able to take advantage of them." UK Chancellor George Osborne has promised local authorities in England more flexibility over business rates by 2020.

More patients in Scotland given antidepressants - BBC News
814,181 patients in 2014/15. Since 2009/10, use of antidepressants has increased by 28.5%. Two-thirds of the patients given the drugs were women, with use peaking in the 50-54 age group. The figures indicated antidepressant use was associated with deprivation. They recorded 225,969 patients in the poorest parts of Scotland receiving the drugs, compared with 110,507 in the least deprived areas. The total cost of antidepressants to the NHS in Scotland was £40.8m. The use of lower-cost drugs means this figure has fallen by one-third over the past 10 years.

Sidewalks look like the surface of the moon; alleys are littered with broken glass; and streets are strewn with sleeping persons and human shit. All of this can be observed from in the shade of the brand-new office buildings and luxury condos that now line the streets everywhere east of 4th Street.

The more you pursue happiness, the faster it runs from you | Zach Stafford | Comment is free | The Guardian
Psychologist Iris Mauss at the University of California, Berkley found that the pursuit of happiness might just leave you worse off. “Wanting to be happy can make you less happy,” said Mauss in an interview with livescience.com. “If you explicitly and purposely focus on happiness, that appears to have a self-defeating quality.” [...] In her studies, participants who were not happy would begin blaming themselves for feeling sad. They thought it was an immediate flag for their failure, making these negative feelings even more counter-productive. The people who accepted these negative feelings as normal, however, were much happier in the long run. So, accepting your sadness could actually make you feel good. [...] For Darwin, emotions were very much tied to surviving, which requires more than just happiness. [...] Be open about how you’re feeling, don’t try to hide behind it or conceal it. // &! keeping a diary talking to and about yourself compassionately.

What is Angela Ahrendts doing at Apple? - Fortune
“She motivates people. She inspires people. And she is the sort of person who wants to see things succeed as a team. It’s a rare quality.” [...] Ahrendts believes the key to the company’s future is not just marvelous products, but also engaging and energizing its nearly 100,000 employees, 60% of whom now work in retail division. “If you’re going to employ people anyway,” she says, “why not make them the differentiator? They’re not a commodity.” Now that there are 459 Apple stores in 15 countries, many people have their first Apple experience inside a store—a first impression that could forever tarnish the brand if it’s not good. “Burberry was about building a relationship,” she says. “But it was always about selling an amazing product that you would have forever. Apple is just a deeper relationship with a much broader constituency. Because it’s everybody.” // apple positioned itself just above everyone else it competes w [having a margin!], but not too far up to be douchy, off-setting

Nothing we know [ about X ] should be assumed to be true. // Technology is the product of the culture that builds it. // If you want to build for the long term, the only guarantee is change. Invest in your people and your ability to ask questions, not your current answers. Your current answers are wrong, or they will be soon. // Software development should be thought of as a cycle of continual learning and improvement rather a progression from start to finish, or a search for correctness. If you aren’t shipping, you aren’t learning. If it slows down shipping, it probably isn’t worth it. Maturity is knowing when to make the trade off and when not to. // You build a culture of learning by optimizing globally not locally. Your improvement, over time, as a team, with shared tools, practices and beliefs is more important than individual pockets of brilliance. And more satisfying.

Survivors | Bothsides of the Table
Failure. To most people it smells. People are afraid of it. It’s like cancer or divorce. When you have it you find you who your true friends are because they’re the ones who double down on helping, on being available, on listening, on understanding. Most people run from failure or disease because they’re hard to handle. Hard to know how to deal with. Awkward. But I am attracted to those who have had severe set-backs in life because it tells you something about the mettle of the person with whom you’re dealing. It reminds me of a famous quote in one of my favorite novel’s “Damage” by Josephine Hart “Damaged people are dangerous. They know they can survive.” [...] closed up shop at the very first hurdle. I wouldn’t work with him again. [...] Honor is what I’m looking for. How you failed is significantly more important than if you failed.

Spotify says sorry after privacy policy anger - BBC News
The new terms included access to pictures, contact phone numbers and sensor data stored on the user's smartphone. Mr Ek apologised in a blogpost for the "confusion" the changes had created. He promised an "update" to the new policy in order to clarify it but did not suggest that the terms themselves would be changed. "We should have done a better job in communicating what these policies mean and how any information you choose to share will - and will not - be used," Mr Ek wrote. He said Spotify would not access or import people's photos, contacts, sensor or GPS data without their permission.

The Trouble With Reddit’s Content Policy Update | Re/code
It makes sense that hosting what the Southern Poverty Law Center described as the nexus of white supremacism on the Internet makes it difficult to “maintain a healthy and successful platform.” It’s obvious that Reddit doesn’t want to play host to racism and harassment. But the company doesn’t want to compromise too much on the “free speech” principles that hardcore Redditors, who are integral to the day-to-day functions of the site, obsess over. And Reddit also wants to cut ties with well-known hate centers like r/coontown that offend both advertisers and common decency. Reddit’s problem is that it wants to have it both ways. [ tl;dr Reddit wants to be more family friendly to be more attractive to advertisers, after all it has the pageviews to have advertising, what ever form, make it a sizeable revenue pillar. That should have long ago been communicated, still hasn't. ]

Imgur finally cracks down on NSFW content -- and its users are fucking pissed
Making thinks more Family Friendly! To attract (more) actual advertisers (to get even to a 'maybe'). To fund the sites ops and with an aim to actually make a profit. Think about if Nike and co co-host their pictures on Imgur. And or post branded / native style content on imgur along the strings imgur plays. Telling a story with picture series. ie about how a product came to be/evolved (a shoe). // https://www.crunchbase.com/organization/imgur - Reddit and Imgur got funding from a17z

This is the Product Death Cycle. Why it happens, and how to break out of it
via bit.ly/1MEHKDc [ can't be everything for everyone ! Aaron Levie (Box, SAAS, Enterprise) in one interview said they did not go ahead with some clients ("Saying NO, is maybe even more important than saying yes.") because they wanted so much change, which would make further update to the whole system a headache/more cost than the client would bring in. ] // "The Product Death Cycle is tricky because it’s driven by the right intentions: Listen to customers and build what they want. People in the Product Death Cycle naturally believe that they are doing the right things, but good intentions don’t translate to good traction. Instead, ask “why?” over and over, to understand the root cause for lack of growth."

My Reddit Utopia - Everything you think you know about “the front page of the Internet” is wrong. : TrueReddit
Yep there are great niche subreddits. But that doesn't mean that the racism/sexism that exists all over the defaults isn't a wrong picture of reddit. Plus the sewage in the basement tends to leak over to decent subreddits.

Former Reddit CEO alleges co-founder Alexis Ohanian fired Victoria Taylor, not Pao
via redd.it/3d6asv // nyti.ms/1gz0Iks // yishan - former CEO :: Alexis wasn’t some employee reporting to Pao, he was the Executive Chairman of the Board, i.e. Pao’s boss. He had different ideas for AMAs, he didn’t like Victoria’s role, and decided to fire her. Pao wasn’t able to do anything about it. In this case it shouldn’t have traveled upstream to her, it came from above her. Then when the hate-train started up against Pao, Alexis should have been out front and center saying very clearly “Ellen Pao did not make this decision, I did.” Instead, he just sat back and let her take the heat. That’s a stunning lack of leadership and an incredibly shitty thing to do. I actually asked that he be on the board when I joined; I used to respect Alexis Ohanian. After this, not quite so much. // Alexis Ohanian "It was my decision to change how we work with AMAs and the transition was my failure[.]" &! tnw.co/1M7IZ0t &! redd.it/3d2hv3 &! bit.ly/1L5f6O5 Sarah Lacy on Reddit & Digg

>> Ellen Pao wasnt alone, there was Sam Altman and Alexis Ohanian who also aversaw 1) how to make AMAs and Co reddits a business avenue (he plan of how to make money without asking / consulting all stakeholders!) and 2) its lack of mod and community support on a lasting basis and 3) to fire Victoria, and secret santa founder and SVP of product bc they did were not on the same line with the head honchos how to make money with Reddit.

Reddit's fate hangs in the balance as revolt against CEO makes waves | Technology | The Guardian
While more than 200,000 Redditors want Ellen Pao to resign, readers are jumping ship to budding competitor sites as top brass pushes to go mainstream [...] Redditors – as users are called – have accused the site of increasingly trying to monetize its popularity, and it appears their sentiments came to a head last Thursday, when Reddit’s popular director of talent, Victoria Taylor, was let go from her post. [...] a company torn between catering to commercial interests, and an obsession with giving voice to every possible perspective. [...] But some have suggested that the latest revolt is a flashpoint in a wider clash of cultures. The web’s largest agglomeration of niche enthusiasts provides a portal for people to make friends and enemies in a wide range of different communities, including some less reputable forums that have come under increasing scrutiny. &! bit.ly/1NMqxYG - Memo to VCs: Not every site with gargantuan traffic is destined to be a billion dollar public company

Reddit Alternatives: Where Will Ellen Pao’s Detractors File Out?
“Everytime I’ve been with a community, whether it be a Usenet group, or forum, or Digg, or Reddit, once it becomes popular, it attracts new people that don’t absorb the culture or share the same attitudes as the founding members. After a time, it gets worse and worse until, well, this happens. Hopefully it won’t befall this community or Voat or whatever new site takes the mantle of Reddit, but it almost always does in the end, people, sorry to say, just aren’t very nice in large groups, you add money/politics/special interest into the equation as well, and it just makes it doubly terrible.” // &! http://www.wds.co/3-contact-center-lessons-reddits-revolt/ - 1. Don’t underestimate how invested your agents are in what’s going on / 2. Ensure that everyone’s following the North Star / 3. Prepare for tomorrow’s CSR / [...] The lesson: your agents will increasingly become your brand advocates, [...] Ensure you#re always following the same north star, or risk a very public meltdown.

Reddit Moderators Are Locking Up The Site’s Most Popular Pages In Protest | TechCrunch
Reddit [...] is going through a serious revolt right now. The moderators behind a number of the most popular subreddit pages on the site — which are crucial to Reddit’s traffic and appeal — have made their communities private, thus shutting them off from the wider internet and new users, in protest at the departure of a key Reddit staffer and ongoing poor communications. // [...] [ One deleted Quora answer cited differences between Victoria Taylor & management to push more commercial AMA's (branded native content/advertising) and video (as revenue pillar), especially the latter running contrary to nature of Reddit. It being text). To sack Taylor without notice or transition period, shows how NOT deep involved upper management are in Reddit Mod Community. Especially the lack of tools, support & communication both ways - claims. & then the high horse type response from Ohanian is the kicker. Its like theyve asked for it.

Reddit Is Tearing Itself Apart
via - redd.it/3bxua2 // &! bit.ly/1LMuYFb Reading some of the mods complaints and history, it seems Reddit management has a problem ... with management, internal communication and HR. plus a lack of leadership, vision, roadmap, plus lack of qualified engineers that help mods do their work, even thinks like approving pull requests for reddit opensource "Reddit Companion." All compounded by not making lots of money, instead using the round they've raised from A16Z to move to a more expensive office (see CEO yishan resigning over this move, and the stress of being the CEO of Reddit [meaning there is little deeper management structure and experience to fan out the work, responsibilities and stress.)!? << onforb.es/1IyJ5Mm // I think it is true if you describe internal reddit as still yet to grow out of chaos and daily little mistakes along the way that have start-ups with hockey stick growth!? Reddit is not ur usual Silicon Valley Start-Up. I has a very different story, thus problems.

Huge chunks of Reddit are locked after AMA coordinator fired | The Verge
As much as Victoria is loved, this reaction is not all a result of her departure: there is a feeling among many of the moderators of reddit that the admins do not respect the work that is put in by the thousands of unpaid volunteers who maintain the communities of the 9,656 active subreddits, which they feel is expressed by, among other things, the lack of communication between them and the admins, and their disregard of the thousands of mods who keep reddit's communities going. // http://redd.it/3bw39q bit.ly/1LMuYFb "We're constantly ignored by the community team even when discussing serious issues that need some admin resolution. [...] I can't pretend to know what went into your decision to let go of Victoria, but from my perspective it was awful, and made ten times worse by apparently having no plan for how to replace her or make things work in the future. [...] Even if she did something really bad and deserved to be sacked, this whole thing has been handled terribly."
