'Dark ages' warning issued over freedom of information changes | Media | The Guardian
Exempting advice given to ministers from freedom of information requests risks returning the UK to the “dark ages” of “private government”, the information commissioner has warned. Christopher Graham told a review into the legislation that changes to FoI being considered by a government commission could lead to a blanket ban on all advice being made available to the public. //&! bit.ly/1N3fuLD //&!

Disabled students fear loss of essential support - BBC News
[ easy thing to move double digit spend off balance sheet onto someone else's - Career Politicians trick ] "Disabled students should be allowed equal opportunities to non-disabled students and to put it bluntly, the cuts to DSA limit our futures. "Having discussed the cuts to DSA with deaf and other disabled students I have seen a trend in a loss of hope. These students, myself included, feel disregarded by the government and our access to higher education has been unjustly restricted." [...] The National Union of Students fears small, specialised institutions will struggle to meet the costs. Disabled students' officer Maddy Kirkman said the changes risked inconsistency in support and complained the government had ignored these concerns. [...] The Green party said the changes amounted to a £70m cut to support for disabled students. [...] She warned that disabled students could "fall into a no man's land" with government and universities each claiming it is the other's responsibility.

School debts 'have increased sharply' since 2013 - BBC News
State school debt in England and Wales has increased sharply in the past three years, as budgets tighten and cost pressures hit schools, a report says. [...] 'Cost pressures biting' The Department for Education added it was up to head teachers to prevent their schools from going into debt. "We have always been clear that local authorities need to work with schools to prevent any deficits and surpluses becoming significant," it said. [...] 'Protected budgets' Although the chancellor's Spending Review confirmed per pupil funding will be stable as numbers increase, the Institute of Fiscal Studies has warned there will be significant cost pressures of up to 8% on schools over the next five years. // [ Strong economy = Strong NHS ]

Coca-Cola will Zahlungen an Forscher in Europa veröffentlichen - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Die "New York Times" hatte im August einen Fall von Wissenschaftssponsoring durch den Konzern aufgedeckt. Daraufhin gab Coca-Cola zu, mehr als hundert Millionen Dollar für "Gesundheitspartnerschaften" und Wissenschaftskooperationen ausgegeben zu haben und veröffentlichte eine Liste mit Wissenschaftlern und Gesundheitsorganisationen, an die das Geld geflossen war. So unterstützte der Getränkegigant der Zeitung zufolge beispielsweise eine Einrichtung namens "Global Energy Balance Network", die behauptete, es gebe keine Belege dafür, dass zuckrige Getränke Übergewicht verursachten. Vielmehr sei mangelnde Bewegung das Problem.

Junior doctors contract: Jeremy Hunt accused of 'lying' over weekend mortality - BBC News
Jeremy Hunt (who co-Authored a book about the privatisation of NHS) has been accused of "lying" about weekend mortality rates, over his use of data from a study published in the British Medical Journal. An audience member on the BBC's Question Time programme said some of his liver transplant patients refused life-saving operations because they now feared going under the knife at the weekend. It is not the first time Mr Hunt's use of the study has been questioned. In October, BMJ editor Dr Fiona Godlee sought clarification over comments which she said implied the higher weekend death risk was due to poor staffing, despite the study itself not apportioning blame. Mr Hunt has used the study repeatedly and the government says there is enough evidence to support the claims. - bbc.in/1hVMGcz

Conspiracy-theorist nutbags run Congress, and they’re making Benghazi a verb: Next up, climate scientists - Salon.com
But in this political environment, being cautious about just handing a bunch of documents over to Republican is a smart move. After watching the Planned Parenthood and Benghazi hearings, a couple of things are clear: One, the Republicans will extract any stray word or number they can and take it out of context in an effort to advance their political agenda, with concerns about decency and honesty not restraining them in the slightest. Two, if they can’t find something like that, they’ll probably just lie about it. [...] The episode was a stellar demonstration of how the utter lack of morals and decency among House Republicans will lead them to distort and lie about numbers, even in the most obnoxious and obvious ways. [...] Imagine what kind of lies and distortions Republicans could gin up with the complex equations and variables that go into climate science. // confusing people. put doubt into peoples mind.

Atomausstieg und Finanzierung: Beschwichtigen und bezichtigen - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Gut 38 Milliarden Euro haben E.on , RWE , EnBW und Vattenfall dafür zurückgelegt. Doch die Milliarden liegen nicht auf irgendwelchen Konten, sondern müssen teils von den Kraftwerken der Konzerne noch erwirtschaftet werden. Die aber verkaufen aufgrund des Booms der erneuerbaren Energien immer weniger Strom zu immer schlechteren Preisen. Obendrein drohen die Kosten für den Atomausstieg immer weiter zu steigen, weil die Suche nach einem Endlager für die strahlenden Überreste des Nuklearzeitalters komplizierter und langwieriger ist als geplant. Die Regierung sorgt sich, dass die Rückstellungen nicht reichen und die Steuerzahler am Ende auf Milliardenkosten sitzen bleiben - obwohl die Energieriesen mit den AKW zuvor gewaltige Gewinne gemacht haben.

Paris und Hannover: Die Folgen des Terrors - Lobo-Kolumne - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Das liegt vielleicht daran, dass man eine Gegenbeschwörung für notwendig hält, weil ja schon der Terror als eine Form der Beschwörung erscheint: eine Beschwörung der Angst- und Hasssphären der westlichen Gesellschaften, die radikalisiert werden sollen. Denn Radikale können zur Selbstrechtfertigung, als Existenznarrativ auch Radikale auf der anderen Seite gut gebrauchen. Schwarz-Weiß-Malerei als wichtigstes Geschäft Notfalls erzeugen sie sich welche, das wichtigste Geschäft des Radikalismus ist die Schwarz-Weiß-Malerei, Zivilisation heißt Differenzierung. Ein Verleger fordert in diese Stimmung hinein ernsthaft die "Radikalisierung der Mitte", als definiere sich die Mitte nicht gerade durch die Abwesenheit von Radikalismus. Die Absurdität dieser Beschwörung hat innenministerielle Qualitäten, hilfloser und unverantwortlicher kann man gar nicht in die islamistische Falle tappen, dem Wunsch nach Radikalisierung.

Tory MPs in 71 marginal seats at risk from cuts to tax credits | Politics | The Guardian
George Osborne has come under fresh pressure to halt controversial cuts to tax credits as new research shows that 71 Tory MPs in marginal seats could be vulnerable to a backlash from families hit by dramatic falls in their incomes. The impact of the cuts, which will leave 3.2 million families worse off by an average of £1,300 a year from next April, is already causing concern among Conservative MPs and ministers, who believe they will punish precisely the kind of working families David Cameron claims to represent. [...] The House of Commons library has found that some families could lose up to £3,000 a year if the tax credit cuts are not reversed. // &! bit.ly/1RPnKjW - With six million people not earning enough to cover the basic cost of living, tackling in-work poverty is crucial,

Prospect of TTIP already undermining EU food standards, say campaigners | Business | The Guardian
Opponents of Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership say EU negotiator has admitted to approving entry of banned goods [...] EU negotiators will resume controversial trade talks with the US on Monday amid claims that multinational companies have jumped the gun in advance of any agreement to import goods that are currently banned – including genetically modified crops and chemically washed beef – into European markets. A campaign group says that a report in a US journal concerning the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) talks show that Europe is already capitulating to huge pressure from the US to allow imports of previously banned goods before an agreement is reached. [...] [ as always its about] lower trade barriers and boost growth. [ Trade Deals like TTIP & TPP are better for US economically than a military invasion. who is excluded? BRIC.

Die Website geflügel-charta.de enthält Texte, deren Länge sich offenbar bewusst den Gesetzen der Aufmerksamkeitsökonomie in der digitalen Welt zu widersetzen beabsichtigt.

Everything in Moderation? Even Heart Disease? | NutritionFacts.org
Health authorities appear to have taken the patronizing view that the public can’t handle the truth and would rather the science be watered down. It’s worth rewatching and pausing on the Framingham data, the graph with the bell curves. That’s a very important concept to understand. At first glance, it looks like those that get heart disease and those that don’t have very similar cholesterol levels, but that’s only at “normal” levels. To get an Optimal Cholesterol Level, one has to eat an exceedingly healthy diet. It’s worth it, though, since we’re not just talking life and death with heart disease, but life and the #1 cause of death. And I continue this streak of questioning the patronizing paternalism of authorities in the next video, Optimal Diet: Just Give it To Me Straight, Doc. - bit.ly/1RhH5cG - Why is there a reticence to provide the public with guidelines that will spare them from preventable disease and premature death?

NHS and care sector: Safety a 'big concern' in England - BBC News
[ NHS set-up to fail by Tories budget cuts over last 5 years ] bbc.in/1VWVnB2 &! bbc.in/1LplwDz - Heath chairman Sarah Wollaston on NHS England funding 15 October 2015 Last updated at 16:21 BST At least £4bn of the extra money promised for the NHS in England is needed this year, says Conservative MP Sarah Wollaston. The chair of the health select committee told Jo Coburn: "If it all comes on stream at the end the NHS is going to be in very serious financial difficulty, so we need to have some of that earmarked to come on stream early." They also spoke about contracts for junior doctors - with the Conservative MP explaining that her GP daughter has gone to work in Australia - and a "culture of transparency" in health services in their Daily Politics interview.

Cameron responds to Question Time tax credits complaint | Money | The Guardian
[S]he & her four children were entirely dependent on a combination of working tax credits & child benefits because her business did not make a profit. “I get £400 a week in tax credits, child maintenance from my ex-partner & child benefit. And that’s what I live on. What I make from the business goes straight back into it.” Dorrell, who accused the Tories of telling lies to her and others in a similar situation [...] The House of Commons has approved the cuts to tax credits, with only a handful of Conservatives rebelling against the measures. [...] [The] IFS & the Resolution Foundation say the welfare cuts in Osborne’s summer budget will leave some of Britain’s poorest families up to £1,300 a year out of pocket.

Public libraries, pools, social care, etc etc. dismantling britian. framing it as job creator. as if tax cuts create demand! lol. its a race to the bottom. ] Colin Borland, the Federation of Small Businesses' (FSB) head of external affairs in Scotland, said it was good news that cutting the cost of doing business was "at the heart of the deputy first minister's message". 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.

Doctors ask Cabinet Office to investigate Jeremy Hunt's patient deaths comments | Politics | The Guardian
Doctors have asked a Whitehall watchdog to investigate Jeremy Hunt’s claim that 11,000 patients a year die after being admitted to hospital at the weekend because too few medics are on duty. Two doctors, who represent around 3,380 other doctors, have complained to the Cabinet Office about Hunt’s claim, which he is using to justify both imposing a new contract on junior doctors and turning the NHS into a seven-day service. [...] claim the health secretary has breached the ministerial code of conduct by misleading MPs and misrepresenting official statistics through his allegedly misleading use of the 11,000 figure, about which he has been “not accurate or truthful”.

Robots are coming for your job. That might not be bad news
The problem with automation isn’t technology. The problem is capitalism. // [ Deflationary pressure, 3bn people in developing world and frontier markets unemployed, waiting to join workforce. ] [ who buys the gadgets and widgets when half the world is unemployed ] // This time, as Martin Ford argues in Rise of The Robots, education and upscaling won’t help us. There will simply be fewer jobs to go around, as everything from accountancy to journalism will be done faster, cheaper and more efficiently by machines. The result, as Jerry Kaplan agrees in Humans Need Not Apply, is that billions will be left destitute – unless we radically rethink our way of keeping people fed.

It’s extremely brutalising that you’re going to be for sale. It’s one of the worst things you can possibly imagine. Go to any party and you see that: I just don’t think you’re worth talking to.

Iain Duncan Smith calls people without a disability "normal"
The art of cruelty: why the Conservative attack on disabled people harms us all. No sick person responds to their diagnosis by thinking, “I can scam taxpayers for £73 a week!” [...] Not only is in-work poverty a larger drain on the benefits system than the unemployed, but most of the things that help disabled people get back to work have been cut. [...] They got away with this by launching an all-out propaganda assault that portrays disabled and workless people as “scroungers”, “sponging” off the state, when presumably they should be grateful not to be left on a hillside to die as would have been done in the good old days. [...] This is Tory Britain. [...] The welfare state is being dismantled and rebuilt as a machine to manage and discipline the workforce into accepting precarious labour, low pay and no social safety net. [...] this way the Tories can persuade the most vulnerable in society to accept their fate and the rest of us to believe that they deserve it. [...] moral hazard

More jobs paying below living wage - BBC News
'Prevalent' low pay The ONS figures show that the proportion of jobs paying below the living wage has grown. In 2014, young adults were most likely to be paid less than the living wage. Some 58% of jobs carried out by 18 to 24-year-olds outside of London and 48% of jobs in this age group in London were paid less than the living wage. In accommodation and food services in 2014, an estimated 65% of jobs paid less than the living wage in London and 70% in the rest of the UK. Northern Ireland had 29% of jobs paying below the living wage, the highest in the country. At the other end of the scale, 19% of jobs in the South East of England, London and Scotland paid below the living wage. [...] "These figures demonstrate that while the economy may be recovering as a whole, there is a real problem with ensuring everyone benefits, and low pay in still prevalent in Britain today."

Migration rules need re-think - NHS boss - BBC News
A re-think of immigration rules which protect ballet dancers but not vital foreign nurses need re-thinking, the head of the NHS in England says. NHS England chief executive Simon Stevens made the comments over a new pay threshold for non-European workers. It means means migrants will have to leave the UK after six years if they are not earning at least £35,000. Exemptions are in place for some, including ballet dancers, but not nurses. The Royal College of Nursing has warned the rules would "cause chaos" for the NHS and waste money spent on recruitment. The union has said that by 2017 more than 3,300 NHS nurses could be affected, and by the end of the decade the numbers could be double that.

Tory conference: New GP contract for seven-day service - BBC News
The Royal College of GPs has warned a recruitment crisis was making plans for seven-day working "unrealistic". Mr Cameron's comments came as the government denied pressuring officials behind the scenes to delay the publication of figures which show the financial performance of the NHS. A report in the Observer claimed officials at Monitor and another NHS regulator were leaned on to delay financial and other performance figures such as treatment waiting times in order to avoid embarrassment at the Conservative conference, which is taking place this week. Health officials have said the data will be published shortly. On the BBC's Andrew Marr Show, Mr Cameron insisted a seven-day-a-week NHS was "a really exciting prospect".

A third of Police Scotland's workforce intends to leave the organisation within the next three years, according to a survey of the force's staff. The survey also suggested that only a quarter of police officers felt they had the resources needed to do their job properly. And fewer than one in 10 staff members thought the force was genuinely interested in their wellbeing. About half of the force's 24,000 staff took part in the survey.

Law students had to help a man in debilitating pain fight being declared "fit to work"
“In any other area of law, if you were getting 19 out of 20 of your decisions overturned, you would want to go back and look at your whole decision-making process again. I think the DWP needs to seriously look at this.” [...] It was a telling revelation, not least because it highlighted the fact that vulnerable people and sufferers of mental health problems are being exposed to the system. King says that, of the cases ABLC took on, more than a third of claimants had already been diagnosed with some form of mental illness before their initial assessment. [...] It’s a precarious time for people with disabilities and mental illness, especially with funding for mental health being cut in real terms by more than 8 per cent, the lack of legal aid support for people wrongly declared "fit to work", [...] adds up to a total of 19 different cuts for the most severely disabled people.

Scottish government attacks 'national living wage' plans - BBC News
The UK government's National Living Wage plans have been criticised as a "misappropriation of the term" by the Scottish government. Under the plans announced by Chancellor George Osborne in July, the minimum wage for over-25s will rise from £6.50 an hour to £7.20 in April next year. It will rise to at least £9 by 2020. The Scottish government said the proposals were "simply an enhancement of the national minimum wage" rather than a true living wage. [...] "It is simply an enhancement of the national minimum wage which disgracefully discriminates against the under 25s.

My fear is that Addenbrooke's is just the beginning
Whilst our ageing population creates an underlying pressure on hospitals across the country, the failure of Conservative ministers to plan the NHS workforce and properly fund social care is at the heart of the problem.  A key contributor to the ‘inadequate’ rating given to Addenbrookes was understaffing, particularly in the maternity and A&E services. The CQC is clear that the staff working at the hospital did everything they could for the patients in their care. The problem was that there simply weren't enough of them. [...] The Royal College of Nursing estimate that hospitals spent almost £1 billion on agency nurses alone last year – it’s no wonder hospital finances are in such a dire position. [ Osborne cut spending (when came to power in libdem coalition 2010) on training! stupid, he put the NHS/Hospitals in that position! experts say it won't be fixed for years. pipeline issue was created by Tories! ]

It’s the British establishment that has a problem with democracy | Seumas Milne | Comment is free | The Guardian
‘Rewarding major donors with seats in parliament and jobs in government is a long-established British tradition.’ [...] But political corruption and the implacable opposition of the spooks and military to progressive change are the traditional forms of anti-democratic politics, in Britain, as elsewhere. For the past generation it has been the corporate embrace, the revolving doors, the privatised contracts, the “free trade” treaties, European Union directives, and the removal of economics from democratic control under the neoliberal rules of the game that have set the boundaries of acceptable politics. [ Jeremy Corbyn is a symptom/backlash to the status quo ] Since the 2008 crash the rejection of that broken economic model and the hollowed-out politics that reflects it has spread across the western world, now including Britain. Which helps explain why Cameron’s Conservatives have turned to the most retrograde measures to bring opposition to heel. //&! bit.ly/1FWK86Y

Healthier lifestyles 'could cut cancer cases by a third' - BBC News
For example, among men, 9% of cases of advanced prostate cancer could be prevented every year if men were not overweight or obese. [...] Prof Kevin Fenton, director of health and wellbeing at Public Health England, said the UK was currently behind on cancer survival rates compared with other European countries. He said one major factor was that cancer prevention was not in the public consciousness. "The link between tobacco and cancer is widely known and readily accepted by the public, but many are not yet fully convinced that healthy eating, regular exercise and not drinking alcohol, can lower your cancer risk." // &! forksoverknives.com/longevity-diet/ --- premature ageing and early death and sick end of life, through the adoption of a western diet. //&! bit.ly/1LJxhnU

Is it HEALTHY to have Obese role models? Tess Munster - YouTube
fat shaming (does not help, ultimately) is not enlightenment (public education and personal self-education, reading up how you harm yourself and people from high up & ur parents have poisoned you since your inception (epigenetics, pollution)), medical intervention, helping someone when you were in their shoes and found help and or helped yourself. Only YOU YOURSELF can be of true interest about YOUR health, because it is your life, your health, your well being, happiness, your disposable income not to spend on medical care. Not food multinational conglomerates owned by a handful shareholders! Theyre not interested in ur health or the nations exploding health care spending. They are interested in maintaining the status quo. Dividends. Profits. Less regulation & oversight. Rising share price. Share buybacks. As child ur indoctrinated, by those people. Because they HOLD the power. There is no broccoli lobby. How abt frame lobby involvement in food pyramid as nanny state by food giants!?
