Obesity is an incurable disease. So why is the government intent on punishing sufferers? | George Monbiot | Comment is free | The Guardian
Fat-shaming is worse than useless. David Cameron points his finger at the afflicted, but food manufacturers and advertisers are the real culprits. s overeating more addictive than crack cocaine? It’s hard to compare addiction rates, or to produce a clear definition that holds true across all substances and behaviours. But consider this crude contrast: of people who use crack cocaine, 10%-20% become addicted to it; across a nine-year study of 176,000 obese people, 98.3% of the men and 97.8% of the women failed to return to a healthy weight. Once extreme overeating begins, it appears to be almost impossible to stop. [...] seek out a range of highly palatable, energy-dense foods, of the kind with which we are now surrounded. [...] [ abuse food ] comfort eating [ handling stress, as is binge drinking on the Fridays and Weekends and your glass of wine every evening during the week ] [ IT IS ABOUT PREVENTION AND ENVIRONMENT HAS TO CHANGE! ] [ 10% NHS Budget is spend on diabetes treatment ]

Griechenland-Krise: Wir verspielen Europa - Kommentar - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Die Griechen können sich per Referendum aus dem Euro wählen, die Briten über einen EU-Austritt abstimmen: Europa droht auseinanderzubrechen - weil wir alle uns zu wenig dafür einsetzen. [...] Griechenland drohen der Staatsbankrott und ein chaotisches Ausscheiden aus der Eurozone. Die Briten sollen in einigen Monaten über den Verbleib in der EU abstimmen. Eine gemeinsame europäische Strategie für den Flüchtlingsansturm über das Mittelmeer ist nicht in Sicht. Die Geheimdienst-Ausspähungen haben die USA und Europa einander entfremdet, während Russland an einer undurchsichtigen Expansionsstrategie arbeitet. [ Symptoms of our time. ] // - Pressekompass: Wer ist schuld an der Griechen-Krise? Die Antworten der internationalen Medien

Is the Home Office attempting to 'body-swerve' official drugs advisers? - BBC News
Questions are now being asked as to whether the ACMD is being edged out of the drugs debate - 44 years after a Conservative government set it up to ensure science rather than politics dictated policy. In the House of Lords yesterday, a number of peers demanded to know why ministers had not asked the ACMD's opinion before drawing up the controversial Psychoactive Substances Bill. "It is actually a legal requirement set out in the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 that the ACMD must be consulted before alterations to the Act or new legislation is brought in," Labour peer Lord Rea told the House. "Instead, a specially appointed expert panel was set up by the Home Office. I can only suggest that this was done because the opinion of the ACMD is often not exactly welcomed by the Home Office".

Here’s how reporters are reacting to Snowden’s revelations | PandoDaily
The global surveillance programs revealed by Edward Snowden have caused journalists to change how they operate, question what the government knows about them, and consider abandoning investigative reporting, according to a survey from the Pew Research Center. A significant number of the journalists surveyed said they had changed their behavior, whether it’s how they store sensitive files (49 percent), how they communicate with other journalists (29 percent), whether they’ve reached out to a source (13 percent), or pursued a specific story (2 percent). Many are also convinced the government is gathering information about them. Some 64 percent of journalists believed intelligence agencies had “probably collected data” about them. (The other 36 percent, as “InfoSec Taylor Swift” joked, must not read the news.)
