Car finance deals soar to new record - BBC News
The Bank of England and the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) have raised concerns about such deals.
The Bank's worry is in relation to levels of consumer borrowing.
However Adrian Dally, head of motor finance at the FLA, said lenders were behaving responsibly.
"We do not share their concerns," he told the BBC. "Lending is responsible. This is a sustainable model going forwards." [...] That is largely because motorists can hand their cars back if they can no longer afford payments.
Ultimately it is the car manufacturers who carry the risk on such deals, as they guarantee second-hand values.

Salmon farming in crisis: 'We are seeing a chemical arms race in the seas' | Environment | The Guardian
As a result of the lice infestations, the global price of salmon has soared, and world production fallen. Earlier this year freedom of information [FoI] requests of the Scottish government showed that 45 lochs had been badly polluted by the antibiotics and pesticides used to control lice – and that more and more toxic chemicals were being used.

1,160 Bridgend Ford job cuts projected in leaked report - BBC News
Overtime
The American car giant currently manufactures 655,000 engines in Bridgend but the contracts for these are coming to an end and there is only guaranteed work for 125,000 in future.
The leaked document said the plant is underperforming in comparison to similar sites, including at Dagenham in Essex.
Overtime levels at Bridgend are more than double Dagenham's rates, which adds 6% to the cost of the engines produced.
It attributes this to absence, non-performance and work practices including paying staff allowances they are not entitled to and regular job rotation.
The document adds that finding future work for Bridgend will be subject to improvements in performance.

Dustin Lance Black: I have no respect for actors who hide their sexuality | Film | The Guardian
He said: “I’ve never encountered homophobia in casting from the studios or networks – not once, not ever. Where you encounter it is with the agents and the managers, they’re the ones who have an outdated notion of the price an actor might pay if it’s discovered that they’re LGBTQ. Often they don’t want to see anything happen that might compromise their investment.”

Here's Why All Pension Funds Are Doomed, Doomed, Doomed
Given that both The Economist and The Wall Street Journal have covered the impossibility of pension funds achieving their expected returns, this reality cannot be a surprise to anyone in a leadership role. [...] Here's problem #1 in a nutshell: the average public pension fund still expects to earn an average annual return of 7.69%, year after year, decade after decade.

This is roughly triple the nominal (not adjusted for inflation) yield on a 30-year Treasury bond (about 2.65%). The only way any fund manager can earn 7.7% or more in a low-yield environment is to make extremely high risk bets that consistently pay off. //&!

NHS budget control 'will require staff cuts'
It says the government should be honest about NHS spending plans at a time when patient demand is rising. [...] The NHS leadership is set to unveil plans to get hospitals and other trusts to stick to agreed spending limits. In the last financial year, trusts ran up a collective deficit of £2.4bn - and the aim is to cut that figure significantly. [...] "It is no longer credible to argue that the NHS can continue to meet increasing demand for services, deliver current standards of care and stay within its budget. This is widely understood within the NHS and now needs to be debated with the public. "There are no easy choices, but it would be disastrous to adopt a mindset that fails to acknowledge the serious state of the NHS in England today." //&! bbc.in/29mkr7G - An overspend would be a serious breach of Whitehall protocol and lead to senior officials being hauled over the coals by the National Audit Office.

NHS finance chiefs warn of poorer care and longer waiting times | Society | The Guardian
NHS finance managers warn today that patients are set to experience poorer care, longer waiting times for treatment and greater rationing.

'Northern powerhouse' depends on productivity not rail links: thinktank | Business | The Guardian
In this post-referendum vacuum, Carney alone can't save the UK economy - Getting productivity going again will require more investment in innovation and our universities. It means more help for businesses that want to update their production lines, overhaul their IT systems or retrain their staff. Productivity will only improve if the UK addresses its skills shortages with sensible immigration policies and with better training. In an age of economic insecurity, training is key if the march of the robots is not to further exacerbate inequality. Similarly, the UK must get serious about moving to an apprenticeship system that has parity of esteem. - http://bit.ly/29cCmtq

Michael Gove delivered the biggest blow to Boris Johnson’s career yet | Matthew d’Ancona | Opinion | The Guardian
[ on purpose leaked? making it show like an accident cc auto-complete gone wrong ... to the right person at the end that it ends up in the papers! ] Yesterday’s leaked email from Gove’s wife, the journalist Sarah Vine, hinted that all was not well in Borisland. In the message, she reminded her husband that his presence on the ticket was intended to reassure press barons who did not warm to Johnson. In return, she said, Boris must give “SPECIFIC assurances” to Gove. One surmises that those assurances were not forthcoming – or that yesterday’s “crucial meetings”, referred to in the email, yielded additional problems.

Real household spending was up 0.7% on the quarter and added 0.5 percentage points to the growth rate.

Fixation on box office hits is killing British theatre, says David Hare
Playwright says the craft is being damaged by focus on selling seats [ // Theatre now following into the steps of Hollywood and Television. ] [...] The playwright said: “Because subsidy is so stretched … every director of a theatre has an emollient eye on the box office. It is now assumed that what is good is that which succeeds.

“When I was young, British theatre was like a tree in which many different birds could nest. But now it’s just for the hawks. It’s not for the birds of plumage, who are not so welcome any more, mainly because they don’t fill the commercial imperative of selling every seat. That, I’m afraid, is how artistic directors are judged.” [ you are good if you are a commercial success, ie Michael Bay ]

What the Hell Happened to Personal Style?
Where a 14-year-old Kate Moss put in her time on Portobello Road with Corinne Day, learning to thrift, self-style, and create her own ambling glamour, the young fashion plates of today have outsourced the development of their style to professionals. And those employed to keep the young and stylish considered that way don’t dare take any real risks, for fear of sartorial missteps, bad tabloid titles (and the online equivalent), or a mention on a worst-dressed list. [...] We are so inundated by these images from paparazzi, from media, from the stars themselves, that we cease to see any meaning behind any of it. Which would be fine (their funeral, as the saying goes), except it’s a very costly absence of meaning, both societally and economically.

While Britain announced Friday it would be joining the European Union’s largest economies—including Germany, France, Italy and Spain—in sharing information about the secret owners of businesses and trusts that may be avoiding taxes, it does not appear Britain’s agreement extends to its overseas territories and crown dependencies, where much of the offshore wealth is hidden.

Superbugs are on track to kill 10 million people by 2050 if things don’t change—fast
[under reported ] Today, 23,000 Americans die each year from infections caused by antibiotic-resistant bacteria, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Across the world, the estimated annual mortality rate is 700,000. If these trends continue, by 2050, 10 million people globally will die each year, as the potent diseases of previous centuries return to their old force, according to the Review on Antimicrobial Resistance. In 2012, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported an estimated 450,000 new cases of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis. The emergence of multiple drug-resistant pneumonia and E. coli bacteria strains are predicted to contribute significantly to increased mortalities due to their ability to spread rapidly through populations.

[TORIES CRISIS: bedroom tax, JSA sanctions killing people, Food Banks, redefining child poverty and fuel poverty, Independent Living Fund closed, Housing Crisis, tax cut defeat in Lords, mental health, NHS strikes, Hinkley Point C, energy prices, London Airport expansion/3rd runway, ESA cut, PIP cut and resignation of IDS, Brexit splitting the Party, shit world economy, can't touch triple-lock pensions, Academy plans, Panama Papers (British Territory: Bahamas, Cayman & Co).] Now - Tories are victims to their own policy of underinvestment since 2010 of a future-proof economy "long-term predictability" [BREXIT & austerity not predictable]. Energy prices too high, not competitive. Manufacturing never recovered. Monetary policy has run its course (sedative + Chinas credit bubble). policy folly now wholly exposed! AND now they tinker with the idea of picking winners! LOL! nationalising or part-nationalising through guarantees or subsidies on energy price. & youtu.be/QJw24Z-cEoQ

Investors urge fast food and pub chains to act to reduce farm antibiotics
A group of powerful City investors who together control more than $1tn in assets have written to leading fast food, pub and restaurant chains urging them to take immediate action to reduce antibiotic use in their meat and poultry supply chains. [...] UK human campylobacter infections have become more resistant to antibiotic treatment. Percentage of human campylobacter cases tested that showed some degree of resistance to the antibiotic ciprofloxacin - approaches 50%!!! [...] Of the 17,332 human campylobacter cases tested in 2015 for resistance to ciprofloxacin, 48% had some degree of resistance to the drug. In 2005, this figure was 30%.

Hospital bug infecting more patients of working age in Scotland
INFECTIONS with the hospital bug clostridium difficile are rising among patients of working age in Scotland - reversing a previous crackdown. New figures show consecutive increases in the number of people under the age of 65 falling ill with C-diff, [...] "Antibiotics can also cause C-diff infections so additional information on this has been shared with our staff to try to reduce the amount antibiotics prescribed routinely in our hospitals.

Pfizer's merger collapse prompts speculation it will seek new takeover
$160bn tie-up with Allergan, which would have been world’s biggest pharmaceutical deal, scuppered by US tax crackdown [...] first announced in November and now abandoned after the US Treasury Department stunned financial markets with measures to clamp down on tax efficient mergers and takeovers. [...] The merger plan had been motivated by the ability to save as much as $1bn in tax annually by shifting Pfizer’s domicile from New York to Ireland, after Allergan moved its base there a year ago in a similar move. Allergan moved its head office to Dublin after a reverse merger with the Irish drugmaker Actavis. [...] [ from the inside of Allergan ...] “It really looked like they [the US government] did a very fine job at constructing a temporary rule to stop this deal and obviously it was successful,”

We Underestimate Tesla
Today the Powerwall and Supercharger network support the sale of Tesla cars. Tomorrow, we may see them feeding electric cars beyond Tesla: BMWs, Toyotas, Ubers, Chevy Bolts and others. The same way Amazon has turned its fulfillment centers into a revenue generator, Tesla could turn the Powerwall and Supercharger into a profit center by selling access to other car companies.

This Week in Health: Clearing up misperceptions about Zika virus
[A] closer look at President Obama's "Cancer Moonshot," - criticism is about focus on treatment (extending life) and nothing at prevention (90% of cases are not genetic, rather environment, exposure, lifestyle, diet). Breast Cancer lots of public activism, not so w bladder cancer. sustainability of investment over 20 years will be important, changing lifestyle habits does not take 20 years.

Public Investment Payoff Not Necessarily About Efficiency
electrification of public rail - reduce emissions and improve public health (health hazard of diesel train engines proven - for passengers and residents). also improve public health - people ditching their cars! // 8:40 each additional public capital investment might be less valuable after the first road to the sea port. but that does not factor in types and public health and safety. road vs train. diesel train vs electric train. slow train vs faster electric magnetic safe low maintenance train w auto pilot (augmented intelligence). less public health risks, less health hazard, more public safety = less economic damage through a less sicker population (health care cost, health care demand, less work hours lost, higher productivity - healthy, happy people) but micro and macro economists do not put this into their GDP - well being, happiness, public health. // beijings hazardous hair will prove to be hughe economic cost (public health) down the road (chronic pulmonary conditions and cancer = lower productivity, lower discretionary spending because of spending goes to medicine and medical care and down the road leads to old age poverty for some if not the family).

The Truth About Caitlyn Jenner’s Politics (time.com)
After all, many Americans still see transgender people as strange or illegitimate. So it wouldn’t surprise me if interest in this story is partly driven by a desire to see the world’s most famous transgender person being taken down by her own community. Caitlyn Jenner has positioned herself as a representative or “ambassador” of trans communities, so I can understand why trans people object or take issue when her views fail to accurately reflect or support those communities. But when people who are unconcerned with transgender rights themselves start piling on, quite frankly, I am suspicious.

Physikalische Grenze der Chip-Entwicklung: Kleiner geht's nicht
"Das mooresche Gesetz ist am Ende", sagt Thilo Maurer. Er erforscht Halbleitertechnologie für IBM. "Es gibt physikalische Grenzen, an denen wir nicht rütteln können." Auch das Fachmagazin "Nature" warnte im Februar von dem nahen Ende des Schrumpfprinzips. Der aktuelle Intel-Chef Brian Krzanich verkündete schon letztes Jahr, dass sich die Entwicklungsdauer von einer Generation von Intel-Mikroprozessoren zur nächsten auf zweieinhalb Jahre verlängern werde. Der von Moore definierte Zeitraum von zwei Jahren war nicht mehr haltbar - auch wenn Krzanich rasch betonte, es könne sich auch nur um eine temporäre Entwicklungsdelle handeln. Das aber erscheint zunehmend unwahrscheinlich. [...] Die Leiterbahnen von heute sind nur noch ein paar Atome breit. Bei solchen winzigen Größen angelangt, kommen die Gesetze der Quantenmechanik ins Spiel, [ 7-5mm & Toshiba said 15mm nand chip not smaller - for 2D. Now R&D focuses on 3D, hight of chip architecture. ]
