Sports Direct shares dive after results chaos | Business | The Guardian
David Cumming, the chief investment officer for equities and head of UK equities at Aviva Investors, told the BBC on Monday: “Sports Direct is almost a case study in failed corporate governance.” He said Ashley “has obviously got retail talent – or had retail talent”, but the firm had “lost its way”.

Justin Urquhart Stewart, a fund manager at Seven Investment Management, said the delayed publication of the results was “frankly a pathetic way to run a business”.

In the annual results, Ashley warned that the state of House of Fraser, which his company bought out of administration last year, had created “significant uncertainty” as to the future profitability of the entire group. He warned of further store closures at House of Fraser and said he regretted the acquisition.

The billionaire retail tycoon has gone on a buying spree in the past 18 months, with Sports Direct also acquiring Evans Cycles, and Game Digital.

Hospital 'abused' vulnerable adults in Durham - BBC News
The 17-bed hospital is one of scores of such units in England that provide care for just below 2,300 adults with learning disabilities and autism. [...] Dr Paul Lelliott, deputy chief inspector of hospitals at the CQC, told Panorama: "On this occasion it is quite clear that we did not pick up the abuse that was happening at Whorlton Hall.

"All I can do is apologise deeply to the people concerned."

The Department for Health and Social Care said it treated allegations of abuse with the "utmost seriousness", but could not comment any further because of the police investigation.

Many are detained under the Mental Health Act.


The Panorama findings come eight years after abuse was uncovered at another hospital for people with learning disabilities, Winterbourne View, near Bristol.

After that programme, the then prime minister, David Cameron, promised the mistreatment of patients would never happen again.

Minister hits out at UK property firms over £200m cladding bailout | UK news | The Guardian
self-serving capitalism

Brokenshire’s plan immediately ran into internal opposition when Melanie Dawes, his most senior civil servant, said it was bad value for money for the taxpayer and regressively diverted money to richer parts of the population. She said: “The public benefits of the scheme do not outweigh the costs of this transfer … the proposal does not meet the normal tests of value for money.”

Recycled packaging 'may end up in landfill', warns watchdog - BBC News
The National Audit Office (NAO) says over half of the packaging reported as recycled is actually being sent abroad to be processed.

As a result, it says, the government has little idea of whether the recyclables are getting turned into new products, buried in landfill or burned.

While an illusion of success has been created by the UK’s system for recycling packaging, the NAO says, the reality may be quite different.

'Toxic garbage will be sold here': Outcry as Brazil moves to loosen pesticide laws | World news | The Guardian
“The economic interest will prevail over human and environmental health.”

Of 121 pesticides permitted in Brazil for coffee production, 30 are already banned in the European Union, including the toxic herbicide paraquat, Bombardi reported in an extensive 2017 study. [...] The country already lets foreign companies exploit its lower standards of protection, they said, “exporting hazardous pesticides prohibited from use in their domestic markets to be used in Brazil.”

Under Brazil’s current legislation, pesticides with elements considered teratogenic, carcinogenic, mutagenic, endocrine disruptive, or posing risks to the reproductive system can’t be registered, they said. But under the bill, hazardous pesticides will only be prohibited when there is a “scientifically established unacceptable risk” – a definition too vague to be effective.

Assumed safety of widespread pesticide use is false, says top government scientist | Environment | The Guardian
“The effects of dosing whole landscapes with chemicals have been largely ignored by regulatory systems,” the scientists said. “This can and should be changed.” They contrast this situation with pharmaceuticals, for which there is a system of rigorous global monitoring after a drug is approved in case adverse effects emerge.

“Vigilance on the scale that is required for medicines does not exist to assess the effects of pesticides in the environment,” they said. They cite the UK as an example of one of the most developed regulatory systems: “Yet it has no systematic monitoring of pesticide residues in the environment. There is no consideration of safe pesticide limits at landscape scales.”

Is Britain's housing bubble turning Japanese? - Renegade Inc
Britain is in the grip of a housing crisis. But contrary to some Daily Mail speculators, the bricks and mortar economy is not going the way of Japan, circa 1990. Economist Neil Wilson explains why the same economic and political forces suppressing Japanese property prices will keep British prices artificially inflated for the foreseeable future. [...] The British building industry has heavily consolidated over the past twenty years, creating an Oligopoly [...] Britain is in the grip of a housing crisis. Yet successive governments have allowed this land speculation to flourish. Industry press releases deflect the blame to local council “red tape”, while sitting on thousands of hectares lying undeveloped “until market conditions improve”.

Employment tribunal fees unlawful, Supreme Court rules - BBC News
Fees for those bringing employment tribunal claims have been ruled unlawful, and the government will now have to repay up to £32m to claimants.
The government introduced fees of up to £1,200 in 2013 to reduce the number of malicious and weak cases, but that led to a 79% reduction over three years.
Trade union Unison argued the fees prevented workers accessing justice.
The Ministry of Justice said the government would take immediate steps to stop charging and refund payments.
The Supreme Court ruled the government was acting unlawfully and unconstitutionally when it introduced the fees.

Barriers to services trade have proved to be harder to deal with.
They come in the form of regulation - not the tariffs or taxes that impinge on commerce in goods. [...] So liberalising services trade is more complicated than it is for goods.

WTO member countries have made commitments during past negotiations about the extent to which they allow foreign suppliers access to their services markets. These vary from country to country and are listed in "schedules" attached to the agreement.

Sell high calorie foods in plain packaging to beat obesity, says Brain Prize winner | Science | The Guardian Peter Dayan, Ray Dolan and Wolfram Schultz share €1m neuroscience prize for work unravelling the brain’s reward system Selling high calorie foods in plain packaging could help in the battle against obesity according to a leading researcher who has won a share of the most lucrative prize in neuroscience for his work on the brain’s reward system. The colourful wrapping and attractive advertising of calorie-rich foods encourage people to buy items that put them at risk of overeating and becoming obese in the future, said Wolfram Schultz, a professor of neuroscience at the University of Cambridge. “We should not advertise, propagate or encourage the unnecessary ingestion of calories,” [ ... dopamine is released in anticipation of a reward, not just consumption of reward, thus seeing comfort food packaging and buying it, releases dopamine = walking into today's supermarket is dopamine rush for some, a high, irresistible, can not stop themselves from buying them 50/50 sugar/fat combos! ]

Jeremy Hunt to consider merging health regulation bodies | Politics | The Guardian
Jeremy Hunt, the health secretary, is preparing to publish a consultation paper that could lead to the medical and nursing professions no longer having their own dedicated disciplinary bodies. [...] [ LIMITING LIABILITIES from suits/claims neglect malpractice discrimination ! instead claim of inefficiencies and less money. ] Department of Health sources say Hunt wants to improve public protection against the possibility of being harmed by poor professional practice and ensure that concerns about the poor performance of health professionals is dealt with quickly and proportionately. Ministers are determined to reform what they see as the unwieldy and confusing set-up under which different types of health staff each have their own regulator.

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.

Inquiry launched into UK gender laws amid fears over Brexit effect | World news | The Guardian
[ one particular NHS already breaking EU overtime work directive ] Areas of equality law to be examined include measures to guarantee equal pay, protection for part-time workers and during pregnancy, and combating so-called intersectional discrimination, where someone faces potential disadvantage for not just their gender but another area, for example race or religion. [...] While the government had promised to protect equality and the rights of workers following departure from the EU, Smethers said, the concern was that some protections could be lost almost inadvertently amid wider changes. [...] “The real worry we’ve got is that those kind of assurances are actually quite superficial, and they are probably a second order commitment compared to the need to secure a competitive economy, and how we compete if we’re outside the trading bloc,” Smethers said. &!

Get Ready for the First Shocks of Trump’s Disaster Capitalism
bush on steroids // Shock Doctrine // [taking advantage/exploit self-created crisis and shocks] To get a sense of how the Trump administration will respond to their first crises, it’s worth reading the list in full (and noting Pence’s name right at the bottom).

What stands out in the package of pseudo “relief” policies is the commitment to wage all-out war on labor standards and on the public sphere — which is ironic because the failure of public infrastructure is what turned Katrina into a human catastrophe. Also notable is the determination to use any opportunity to strengthen the hand of the oil and gas industry.

The first three items on the RSC list are “automatically suspend Davis-Bacon prevailing wage laws in disaster areas,” a reference to the law that required federal contractors to pay a living wage; “make the entire affected area a flat-tax free-enterprise zone”; and “make the entire region an economic competitiveness zone (comprehensive tax incentives and waiving of regulations).”

Brexit: Boris Johnson warns against 'punishment beatings' - BBC News
And HSBC announced it was preparing to move 1,000 staff from London to Paris when the UK leaves the EU. [...] Guy Verhofstadt said there was 'no way' the UK could pick and choose aspects of the EU [...] German Chancellor Angela Merkel said: "The be-all and end-all is that Europe does not let itself be divided, and we will ensure that with very intensive contacts.'' EU governments would consult their business sectors, she added, and she was "not worried that we will not stick together". [...] The Financial Times praises the prime minister's "bold vision" but warns that the road ahead will be perilous. [...] At Prime Minister's Questions, Mr Corbyn urged Mrs May to "stop her threat of a bargain basement Brexit, a low-paid tax haven on the shores of Europe".
He added: "It won't necessarily damage the EU but it would certainly damage this country." [...] Mrs May told MPs: "What I set out yesterday was a plan for a global Britain, bringing prosperity to this country and jobs to people and spreading economic growth across this country." [...] "not just nasty but also blind to reality".

A UK trade deal with Trump? Be careful what you wish for | Politics | The Guardian
A big fear during the TTIP negotiations was that US insurers and health providers would undermine the NHS by pressing for open access to the UK “market” in medical care. “A rushed trade deal with Trump may give ministers cover for their dangerous Brexit strategy but it will not hide the risk that this could be a Trojan horse for NHS privatisation,” warned the shadow health secretary, Jonathan Ashworth on Monday.

Bird flu alert as duck in Llanelli found to be infected - BBC News
so, the feces theory could be true. >> " Restrictions were imposed across Britain to keep birds indoors after the disease came to light across Europe, the Middle East and north Africa. " but waste and feces is strewn across outside on dumps and fields. then picked over by birds of all kinds. industry does not check all birds being imported from across the world and the cages for transport. thus! lack of self-regulation and regulators.

That’s not necessarily what Schneier wants, but he recognizes its necessity.

“I don’t like this,” he concluded. “I like the world where the internet can do whatever it wants, whenever it wants, at all times. It’s fun. This is a fun device. But I’m not sure we can do that anymore.”

The Economist asks: Has Alan Greenspan carried too much blame for the financial crash? by The Economist
Sebastian Mallaby // Repuplican Party loyalist Alan Greenspan. Appointed by Republican president. Later surprised, what they've got w him - as he got more and more politically skilled. The expert w machiavellian tendencies.

"fed tried, fed did, fed failed" in end politics failed (Larry Summers, Bill Clinton shot the starting gun) to reign in investment banking (derivatives), ... &&& group think among economists/profession into believing in self-regulation!!! &&& bc he knew about the possible bubble still did not raise rates enough to prick property bubble. a shy person who liked to be loved.

A giant problem | The Economist
As our special report this week makes clear, the superstars are admirable in many ways. They churn out products that improve consumers’ lives, from smarter smartphones to sharper televisions. They provide Americans and Europeans with an estimated $280 billion-worth of “free” services—such as search or directions—a year. But they have two big faults. They are squashing competition, and they are using the darker arts of management to stay ahead. Neither is easy to solve. But failing to do so risks a backlash which will be bad for everyone. [...] The world needs a healthy dose of competition to keep today’s giants on their toes and to give those in their shadow a chance to grow.
