Over 3,700 deaths linked to alcohol - BBC News
Alcohol was a factor in more than 3,700 deaths in a single year in Scotland, according to new research.

Findings from NHS Health Scotland show that drink was involved in more than 1,000 deaths from cancer in 2015.

It was also linked to hundreds of deaths from conditions such as liver disease, as well as accidental injuries.

In addition, more than 41,000 people were admitted to hospital as a result of consuming alcohol, the study found.

Experts said the findings show that alcohol has a wider impact on health than many people think.

50p minimum price per one unit of alcohol, to come into effect March 2018, after years of legal fight against the alc lobby vested interest. (Sugar Tax, ) - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-scotland-politics-42066394 - Minimum pricing has been broadly welcomed by health bodies and alcohol awareness groups, who say it will target the kind of drinking that leads to the greatest harm. //
People from the most deprived areas are nearly eight times more likely to need help, according to the NHS. There were 36,235 alcohol-related hospital admissions last year - the equivalent of more than 100 a day. They involved 24,060 individual patients - up from the 35,376 admissions involving 23,656 patients the previous year. Alcohol-related admissions had been falling for almost a decade but the latest figures show there were 685.2 hospital admissions per 100,000 people last year - an annual increase of almost 2%. //&! http://www.scotsman.com/news/politics/drink-related-hospital-stays-on-the-rise-1-4619230

Facebook founding president sounds alarm - BBC News
do you know your neighbour? Chomsky manufactured consent. perfect personal propagandist. outrage machine. time waster. feedback loop for No Representation feelings. “I use these platforms, I just don’t let these platforms use me,” // Adam Curtis - FB can not present you with a future, a proposal. bc it is insular isolated environment (perfect personal propagandist) even if you are 'connected with the world.' It's a sham. Its millions of bubbles. not "A" world connected. Occypy was better than facebook. But Occupy hat not even a handful of leaders. political social economic movements need leaders to refer to, dialogue, interview, sign policy papers, etc etc. mass democracy still needs a leader and leadershuip and management and people skills. see Momentum.
