In search of surrogates, foreign couples descend on Ukraine - BBC News
Foreign couples have been coming to this corner of Europe in droves since 2015, when surrogacy hotspots in Asia began closing their industries one-by-one, amid reports of exploitation. Barred from India, Nepal and Thailand, they turned to Ukraine, one of the few places left where surrogacy can still be arranged at a fraction of what it costs in the US.

"We have so many childless couples coming to our country - it's like a conveyor belt," says Ana, who asked for her identity to be protected.

When she was 21, and after some years of hotel work, Ana finally decided to become a surrogate. By then she had a daughter and realised she was eligible. Under Ukrainian law, a surrogate must have a child of their own before carrying someone else's. If you have your own child, you are less likely to become attached to the one you must give away, those who recruit the women say. [...] Europe's capital of surrogacy
Demand for surrogacy in Ukraine "has increased probably 1000% in the last two years alone," says Sam Everingham of Families Through Surrogacy, a Sydney-based charity that advises would-be parents.

The country, he adds, "has found itself almost accidentally as one of the handful of nation states" which allow surrogacy tourism.

Tax evaders exposed: why the super-rich are even richer than we thought | Inequality | The Guardian
The higher one moves up the wealth distribution, the higher the probability ​​of hiding​ assets [...] More broadly, the key to successfully fighting tax evasion is to change the incentives for the providers of wealth concealment services. Over the last few years, a number of banks have pleaded guilty in the US to criminal conspiracies to defraud the Internal Revenue Service – yet they were able to keep their banking licences, and the fines they had to pay paled in comparison to their profits. A more ambitious approach would put criminal organisations out of business. If tax evasion ceases to pay, it will disappear.

I had alcohol-related breast cancer. Here’s why I still drink | Joanna Moorhead | Opinion | The Guardian
The chief medical officer advises women to think about cancer when having a drink. But if I did that every time I had a glass of wine, I think I’d feel the cancer had won [...] I guess what it comes down to is quite simply the importance of enjoying life. When I had cancer, I discovered that I didn’t just want to survive; I wanted to have fun, to make the most of every single day, and to enjoy happy occasions and meals with my friends and family. [...] drinking wine, beer or tequila adds a dimension to social occasions that I rather enjoy. And somehow it feels to me that it wasn’t worth surviving cancer if I’m going to limit my life to thinking, every time someone offered me a glass of something, about my breast cancer and the likelihood of it returning. [...] Life is too short to cut out something you enjoy in moderation, [ picking up the words from the food lobby, heart disease and cancer in moderation. sprinkling in doubt. to continue that lifestyle. do you say asbestos in mod? ]

Government has no idea about Cancer Drugs Fund's impact, MPs say | Society | The Guardian
Department of Health and NHS England have insufficient data on patient outcomes or value for money, and little control over its spiralling budget, committee says [...] “The Department of Health and NHS England do not have the data needed to assess the impact of the fund on patient outcomes, such as extending patients’ lives, or to demonstrate whether this is a good use of taxpayers’ money.” The fund was set up in 2010 by the Conservative government because of the regular outcry from patient organisations and the media when cancer drugs, which typically offer potential weeks or months of extra life to those with a terminal diagnosis, were turned down by Nice, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence.

Scientists get 'gene editing' go-ahead - BBC News
UK scientists have been given the go-ahead by the fertility regulator to genetically modify human embryos. It is the first time a country has considered the DNA-altering technique in embryos and approved it. The research will take place at the Francis Crick Institute in London and aims to provide a deeper understanding of the earliest moments of human life. It will be illegal for the scientists to implant the modified embryos into a woman. But the field is attracting controversy over concerns it is opening the door to designer - or GM - babies.

Billionaire supports reported inquiry into possible ExxonMobil cover-up | Environment | The Guardian
Activist Tom Steyer’s comments followed reports that California attorney general is looking into what the world’s biggest oil company knew about climate change. Billionaire environmental activist Tom Steyer spoke out on Wednesday in support of an unconfirmed investigation by California into allegations that ExxonMobil spent decades lying to investors and the public about its knowledge of climate change. “We don’t have the facts yet, but I think that there is enough that has been revealed that it’s totally appropriate that (California) be conducting this investigation,” Steyer told the Guardian. “Anybody who puts out intentionally misleading information I think should be answering to us.” Steyer’s comments came hours after the Los Angeles Times reported that California’s attorney general, Kamala Harris, is looking into what ExxonMobil, the world’s biggest oil company, knew about climate change going as far back as the early 1980s.

Plan to end student grants without Commons vote outrages opposition | Politics | The Guardian
[ shifting public debt onto private debt balance sheet. = no vision! debt is still there in economy! paying higher interest rates. -- vs -- bankers gambling debt put on public balance sheet! ] Ministers have been accused of an “outrageous” attempt to sneak through their proposals to end student grants in England without proper scrutiny by MPs. The plan to scrap maintenance grants, which help half a million of the poorest students pay for university life, will go through a legislation committee on Thursday, without a vote and debate on the floor of the House of Commons. [...] Labour is opposing the change and the lack of scrutiny. Gordon Marsden, the shadow universities minister, said it was “not simply technical tinkering but a major change by the government that will deprive around half a million of England’s students from lower income and disadvantaged households, of maintenance grant funding”. // &!

Bella Caledonia the news where you are
It’s well-known that the ‘corporate lobby’ are a powerful force in politics. Nowhere is this clearer than in the debate on TTIP, the free trade treaty between the US and EU currently going through the European Parliament. Between 2012 and 2013, 92 per cent of the lobbying on TTIP came from the private sector. Just 4 per cent was public interest groups.

UK seems to relax pressure on Caymans over company register | US news | The Guardian
The UK government appears to have relaxed its pressure on the Cayman Islands to create a register of company ownership, despite David Cameron’s plea last year for overseas territories to do so in the interests of tax transparency. The prime minister promised to introduce a public register of beneficial ownership in the UK and wrote to the overseas territories last year urging them to consider doing the same, arguing that public access to a central list is “vital to meeting the urgent challenges of illicit finance and tax evasion”. However, the Cayman Islands is one of several offshore territories – including the British Virgin Islands and Bermuda – that are refusing to implement the idea after consultation. // sanctions for the vulnerable, disabled, sick, deprived, in poverty going to the food bank without hot water or electricity. but no sanctions for Amazon, Starbucks, Vodafone, Boots, and Co. ... tending to those that donate and go out to vote.

European court opinion due on minimum alcohol pricing - BBC News
Legislation to bring in a minimum unit price of 50p was passed by the Scottish Parliament in May 2012. But a legal challenge was brought by the Scotch Whisky Association (SWA), which argued it breached European law. [...] The Scottish government, which has argued that minimum pricing is vital to address Scotland's "unhealthy relationship with drink", has been unable to implement the policy while the legal process is ongoing. The SWA's legal bid has been backed by other European wine and spirits producers. The industry body has described the legislation, which is supported by health professionals and the police, as "un-targeted, misguided and illegal", and argues that it acts as a barrier to trade.

Diabetes now accounts for 10% of the NHS drugs bill in England, according to official figures. The Health and Social Care Information Centre report shows £869m was spent on drugs for the disease last year. It marks a sharp rise from the £514m being spent on the drugs a decade ago, when they accounted for just 6.6% of the prescriptions budget. The figures include drugs for both type-1 and type-2 diabetes, which affect 2.8 million people in England. It includes insulin, metformin and other anti-diabetic drugs. // &!

Obese people and drug users who refuse treatment could have benefits cut | Society | The Guardian
A nanny state for those that cost the state (directly, and now), because it fits their message 'only work pays'! what a double standard. what a intellectual dishonesty and cynicism.

That one chose consciously, in order not to 'work.' // if people work, and are overweight, have diabetes, obese, high blood pressure, take statins, runing their liver long-term with alcohol abuse (functioning alcoholic, drug user) etc etc - costing the NHS especially long-term (sick population) - it is ok, but if they don't work. it's not ok. // after all, substance abuse, in majority of cases has a mental health (history) & social environment (nurture) component to it. Much complexity to it. And cutting services to actually help & prevent people going down the route of abuse doesn't help.

Report commissioned by 34 hedge funds says government had been ‘massively overspending on education’ despite spending only 79% of US average per pupil [...] The group of 34 hedge funds hired former International Monetary Fund (IMF) economists to come up with a solution to Puerto Rico’s debt crisis after the island’s governor declared its $72bn debt “unpayable” – paving the way for bankruptcy. [...] The funds are “distressed debt” specialists, also known as vulture funds [ Heuschrecken], and several have also sought to make money out of crises in Greece and Argentina, the collapse of Lehman Brothers and the near collapse of Co-op Bank in the UK. // // they are implicit in lending money to a low grade borrower and took on the risk for higher interest rates. instead of looking out for long-term productive investment that benefit society, they go for the investment by click from a Bloomberg Panel, to meet their ROI at year end for their clients, promised in their annual letter.

Red Hat Used by NSA Spies, SELinux Possibly Bypassed
Sam Varghese today wrote that "the NSA runs its XKEYSCORE program for the most part on Red Hat Linux servers." The report he sourced said, "The sheer quantity of communications that XKEYSCORE processes, filters and queries is stunning. Around the world, when a person gets online to do anything there's a decent chance that the Internet traffic her device sends and receives is getting collected and processed by one of XKEYSCORE’s hundreds of servers scattered across the globe." They have hundreds of servers collecting over 20 terrabytes of data a day (and that's an old estimate). They employee a search engine much like Googles to search for key words, phrases, and whatever. // &! bit.ly/1ROfjZZ - Richard Stallman 'basically' has no problem with the NSA using GNU/Linux // https://www.nyse.com/quote/XNYS:RHT

Dad bod to Dancing Man: The ethical minefield of body fat - BBC News
So why has accepting human difference morphed again into normalising the unhealthy? So how do we pick our way through this ethical minefield? Clearly some people have medical conditions which lead them to gain weight and human bodies also change with age too.

Middelhoff-Prozess: Das Urteil geht uns alle an - SPIEGEL ONLINE
[ Power Corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. ] Macht macht etwas mit Menschen. Das zeigt dieses kleine Experiment. Bereits kleinste Ansätze von Autorität über andere Menschen lassen uns rücksichtsloser werden und erzeugen die Illusion, über den Regeln zu stehen. Und je länger jemand Macht hat, desto größer ist die Gefahr, dass sie ihn deformiert. Mit dem gierigen Griff nach den letzten Keksen fängt es an. Und am Ende lässt man sich auf Firmenkosten per Helikopter zur Arbeit fliegen - weil man ganz selbstverständlich glaubt, das stünde einem zu. [...] Oft reicht für Machtmissbrauch bereits das kleine bisschen Einfluss, das wir auf unseren Partner, unsere Kinder oder auch nur unseren Hund haben.

Monitor - Jobkiller TTIP: Neue US-Studie warnt vor dramatischen...
Jobkiller TTIP: Neue US-Studie warnt vor dramatischen wirtschaftlichen Nachteilen des Freihandelsabkommens Für die EU-Kommission steht fest: Durch das Freihandelsabkommen TTIP mit den USA werden hunderttausende neue Arbeitsplätze geschaffen. Zu einer ganz anderen Einschätzung kommt jetzt eine neue Studie von US-Forschern der Tufts-Universität in Boston. Danach drohen durch TTIP massive Wachstumseinbußen, Jobverluste und niedrigere Einkommen. Die Forscher sprechen von "ernsten Konsequenzen für die EU und ihre Mitgliedstaaten". Für Deutschland errechnen die US-Forscher einen Verlust bei Exporten um 1,14 % gegenüber dem Szenario ohne TTIP. Das Arbeitseinkommen würde sich in Deutschland um 3.400 Euro pro Arbeiter verringern. Vor allem aber drohe ein massiver Jobverlust: 134.000 Arbeitsplätze würden demnach allein in Deutschland verloren gehen; 600.000 Arbeitsplätze in der gesamten EU.
