BBC's Brexit coverage pessimistic and skewed, say MPs - BBC News
[ there is no backbench in Parliament and Lords, there is no opposition in parliament and lords, and then the parliament attacks the media ] A group of 72 MPs have written to the BBC accusing it of being pessimistic and skewed in its Brexit coverage - in the months since the vote on the EU.
In a letter to director general Tony Hall, they said the BBC is "unfairly representing" Leave voters by focusing on those who regret their decision.
The MPs warned the future of the BBC "will be in doubt" if it is not seen as a impartial broker.
Lord Hall said impartiality was the "cornerstone" of BBC News.

Brexit has allowed the banks to get off Britain's naughty step | Business | The Guardian
The even better news for the banks is that they are no longer hated. Far from it. Much of the concern about how the UK will survive outside the EU has centred on the future of the City. For years, the banks have been trying to find a way of getting themselves off the public’s naughty step. Brexit has provided them with an opportunity that has been seized with relish. The City has played the post-referendum game masterfully. [...] The recession that the banks caused and the austerity that resulted created the sense of “them and us” – the notion of an unbalanced and unequal Britain – that led to Brexit. [...] constant demands that the government secures passporting rights to allow UK authorised institutions to operate freely across the EU27.

Media Websites Battle Faltering Ad Revenue and Traffic
[lots more competition for people's attention] The trouble, the publishers say, is twofold. The web advertising business, always unpredictable, became more treacherous. And website traffic plateaued at many large sites, in some cases falling — a new and troubling experience after a decade of exuberant growth. Online publishers have faced numerous financial challenges in recent years, including automated advertising and ad-blocking tools. But now, there is a realization that something more profound has happened: The transition from an Internet of websites to an Internet of mobile apps and social platforms, and Facebook in particular, is no longer coming — it is here.

GoPro Isn’t Doomed Yet. But they must become a software company, fast.
GoPro needed to spend heavily in “video editing automation.”
GoPro needs software in spades, far beyond just something to make editing easier. The company that created the first mass-market visceral experience broadcasting device ought to have a hand in every dimension of the current live revolution, not just be one of its few cameras. That requires software. [...] Most consumers already have all the hardware they need to create video; what they need is software to make this infinity of images comprehensible. As the defensibility of hardware declines, GoPro has an advantage few other makers of software have: fans, tens or even hundreds of millions of them.

Sturgeon's council tax changes do not go far enough, say critics | Politics | The Guardian
[ don't make a ruckus, sail through the election easier, thus not announce even a reform for next parliament ... ] Councils complain they are wrestling with £350m in cuts and laying off up to 15,000 staff after their overall budgets were cut by 3.5% last month. Investigations by the Guardian have established that councils have amassed record levels of debt and extra liabilities, with borrowing equal to £6,200 for each household – twice the level held by English councils. Debt and private finance liabilities cost councils £1.5bn a year. [...] [ not reforming a 25 year old system, based in prices from 1991! ]

Pando: Hot or Not founder responds to Nancy Jo Sales' new book: "I don’t think we invented human nature"
Nearly every tweet I’ve read about Nancy Jo Sales’ new book “American Girls: Social Media and the Secret Lives of Teenagers” has been some variation of “I’m scared to read this.” Indeed by page 20, I started making plans to move to an Amish village by the time my daughter turns 12. The deeper I read, the more I was impressed by many of the young women Sales interviewed, and the more sorry I felt that we've given them this world.  [...] Sales also describes how young girls worship Kim Kardashian and derive their self worth from how many likes they get on Instagram.

Greg Hands urged to return from break for fiscal framework talks - BBC News
A Treasury spokeswoman earlier insisted Mr Hands would return "at any time" if the Scottish government was "willing to make a substantial move". [...] Despite months of talks, the UK and Scottish governments have been unable to reach a deal on the fiscal framework for the bill. The parties disagree on their interpretation of the "no detriment" principle laid out by the Smith Commission on new powers for Scotland, which stipulates that neither the UK or the Scottish budgets should be left worse off by a deal.

Why Startups Are Doomed, Part Two — The Information
Jessica’s Friday column “End of Tech Startups” argued that today’s big technology companies are nimble, smart, and well run—and that until there is another fundamental technology disruption, the window of opportunity for startups is limited to more traditional markets with less competitive players. I agree with Jessica, but I don’t think she takes her argument far enough. This new generation of tech companies not only leverages technology to better compete, they also enjoy a position within enormous markets as marketplaces, and that makes them unassailable in a way that their historical brethren were not. The upshot is, I believe startups are going to be locked out of certain types of businesses forever.

As the 12 February deadline set by Nicola Sturgeon, the first minister of Scotland, approaches, the UK Treasury minister Greg Hands confirmed the two governments still did not agree on which formula to use once Holyrood’s new tax and borrowing powers come into force next year.

But the plan was negatively received by the YouTube community because so many people already make similar reaction-based videos online, using the word "react" in the title. "They had a bunch of trademarks already and nobody minded," said Jon, a YouTuber from Many A True Nerd. "But the moment they got to just the word 'react', it was just too commonly used.

Alternativen und Politik. Der Freitag stellt sich bewusst außerhalb dieses Mainstreams. Darin liegt seine Existenzberechtigung aber auch seine Ohnmacht. Das ist das Paradox linker Gegenöffentlichkeit. Wir können den Strom in seinem Lauf nicht ändern. Aber wir haben einen anderen Blick. Wir nehmen für uns in Anspruch, Denkort der Alternativen zu sein. Damit arbeiten wir an der Rückeroberung des politischen Raumes. Denn der Satz von den Alternativen, die es angeblich nicht gibt, ist das Ende von Politik. Den Vorwurf des Populismus muss man sich dann hin und wieder gefallen lassen. Der Philosoph Ernesto Laclau hat geschrieben, Populismus sei „die Stimme derer, die aus dem System exkludiert sind“.

John Swinney warns of 'tough choices' ahead for Scotland - BBC News
Finance Secretary John Swinney has warned of "tough choices" facing Scotland as he prepares to set out his budget. Mr Swinney said the UK government's recent spending review placed "unprecedented pressure" on public expenditure north of the border. The UK government said Scottish ministers would have £390m more in spending available to them next year. Mr Swinney is due to present his 2016-17 spending plans on Wednesday. The Scottish government argues that cuts imposed by the UK government since 2010 - along with last month's spending review - mean that its discretionary budget will be 12.5% lower in real terms by 2019-20 than it was in 2010-11. Mr Swinney said 4.2% of that reduction would come between now and 2019-20.

HMRC to contact Scottish taxpayers over new income tax - BBC News
The Scottish Rate of Income Tax comes into effect on 6 April next year. It will be paid by UK taxpayers who live in Scotland, regardless of where they work, with the rate to be announced by the Scottish government in its draft budget on 16 December. Those paying the new rate will see their tax code prefixed by an 'S' and their income tax will continue to be collected from pay and pensions in the same way as it is now. The new system was a recommendation of the Calman Commission and has been devolved under the Scotland Act 2012 along with powers over stamp duty and landfill tax

Spotify Shrinks Music Download Sales, Fights Piracy – Study | Re/code
Is Spotify shrinking the music business, by giving people a good reason not to buy music anymore? Or is Spotify helping the music business, by giving people a good reason not to steal music anymore? Yes! That’s the conclusion from a new study published by the National Bureau of Economic Research this month. [...] The nice thing about the study is that it manages to bolster both Spotify’s main argument to the music industry for the past few years — if you don’t let us distribute your music, and get some money for it, the pirates will do it and you’ll get none — and the music labels’ primary worry about streaming — there’s no way we’re going to sell enough subscriptions to replace albums and single-track sales!

Former devolution body head Sir Kenneth Calman backs 'Union Charter' - BBC News
I don't think [the case for the Union] has been well enough articulated - it is still a case of 'them at Westminster' Sir Kenneth Calman, former head of the Scottish Commission on Devolution [...] Crossbench peer, Lord Judge, asked if there was merit in creating a Charter of the Union. Sir Kenneth replied: "The answer is yes. I think it would make the discussion easier about who does what, and how we benefit, how you benefit and how we all benefit. I think that would be very helpful. "Without that communication, the average citizen is left wondering who does what for me now - and it is Westminster's fault anyway - so, it is easier to put it the wrong way."

What's going on in UK manufacturing? - BBC News
Manufacturing abt 10% of UK output. The rest of the production industries: mining, quarrying, gas, electricity, water and sewage account for another 5%. The service sector accounts for 79%, with construction making up the final 6%. In the last decade, manufacturing grew gradually from 2005 to 2008, at which point it took a dive in the financial crisis in common with the rest of the economy. It recovered from 2010 until the start of 2012 and has been pretty volatile since then. The sector is still below its pre-crisis peaks, unlike the service sector, which is well above its pre-crisis level. [...] the sector had been "stunned by a triple combination of a sharp slowdown in consumer spending, weak business investment and stagnating export order inflows". But most of the big headlines have been about one sector: steel [ energy price not competitive & bust of commodity prices blown up by ZIRP, NIRP & QE ] [ why not lower energy prices for all!?] & bit.ly/1hPrPrn &! bbc.in/1jRMjRF

What is the outlook for Britain's steel industry? - BBC News
UK steelmakers want lower business rates, a relaxation of emissions targets for heavy manufacturers, more compensation for high energy prices and a commitment that British steel is used in major construction projects. "We've set out some of the things government can press ahead with now to send out a clear signal of support in the very short term," said Gareth Stace, director of UK Steel. [...] How does the government act without going against its free market principles and breaking EU rules? It has already provided steel makers with millions of pounds in compensation for carbon permit costs. Beyond that it says its hands are tied by strict European Union state-aid rules. [ << targeted welfare vs lower energy prices and a smart grid for all ] //&! bbc.in/1GhJaoH - Unions want the government to take "urgent short-term action" to support the industry. [...] the steel industry globally was facing one of the most difficult times in its history. [...] we can't change the price of steel.

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.

Pando: “Is this thing on, bro?”
Earlier this week, The Information published the results of a three-month research project on diversity in venture capital. The results were exactly as you’d expect: There isn’t any. Diversity in venture capital is far worse than the tech industry as a whole. In an op-ed on the site, Social Capital’s Chamath Palihapitiya wrote something that was surprising: He aggressively called out the industry. Not off the record. Not in whispers with journalists. Not saying “some VCs.” He went full barrels on the industry writ-large

Digitaler Burnout: "Zu viel Smartphone macht unglücklich" - SPIEGEL ONLINE
[ portion USE time! 3x1hr? ] Study: Wir beschäftigen uns bis zu drei Stunden am Tag mit dem Smartphone. Der Leiter der Studie zieht daraus bedenkliche Schlüsse - und fordert eine digitale Diät. [...] Der Experte geht davon aus, dass beim Scrollen über den Handyscreen die gleichen Stoffwechselvorgänge im Gehirn aktiviert werden wie bei Drogensüchtigen. Die ständige Kommunikation mit Freunden oder Arbeitskollegen über soziale Medien wie Facebook scheine dabei das größte Suchtpotenzial auszumachen. "Denn dort erhalten wir Aufmerksamkeit und Anerkennung", so te Wildt. [...] "Das Gehirn ist durch den Überfluss an Informationen und Kommunikation komplett überlastet", sagt Markowetz. Im schlimmsten Fall führt das schließlich zum Burnout, wie ihn Miriam Meckel, Chefredakteurin der "Wirtschaftswoche" oder die "Huffington Post"-Gründerin Arianna Huffington erlebt haben. Die beiden Karrierefrauen machten die Kommunikationsüberlastung mitverantwortlich für ihren Zusammenbruch.

David Cameron risks ‘double betrayal’ of Scotland, says Gordon Brown | UK news | The Guardian
David Cameron is risking a “double betrayal” of Scotland if his government fails to make urgent changes to the Scotland bill, Gordon Brown has warned. The former Labour prime minister said the package of new powers for Holyrood must be amended to give MSPs unconditional authority to top up welfare payments, without any risk of such decisions being vetoed by the UK government. He said such changes were necessary to fulfil the pledge of more powers made by Westminster before last year’s independence referendum and to deliver in full on the recommendations of the Smith commission, which the prime minister set up to carry out a review of devolution. [...] Brown saying: “In other words, if a decision was made by the UK government on tax credits, about child benefit or benefits for the unemployed, and the Scottish parliament did not like that decision, it would have the power if it so wished, and if it was prepared to pay for it, to top up these benefits.”
