'Graph of Doom' warning to Highland councillors
deprived areas have low tax base to fund welfare and social care, and w demographic bubble, less income tax receipts. this is a double whammy to fund demand of babyboomers. // In a paper to councillors, officers quote research such as a London borough council's "Graph of Doom" showing the effect of spending cuts on services.
The Highland officials also make reference to political commentators describing a period of "perma-austerity" for local government.
They recommend that the council reviews its priorities.

Virtually all hospitals now in deficit - BBC News
[ demand of ageing chronically sick population outstrips all planning 5 years, again and again and again ] Adam Roberts, of the Health Foundation think tank, said: "These figures are beyond dire. A comprehensive national plan is urgently needed." The situation raises the prospect of the Department of Health failing to balance the overall books, which would be a huge embarrassment given the extra money the NHS is getting. In autumn's spending review the government announced the NHS would get an extra £8.4bn this Parliament. A big chunk of that, £3.8bn, is being put in next year. [...] [Commentary:] This time the impact is likely to be felt in terms of what doesn't happen. The government has promised the NHS extra money in the coming years to help it cope with demand and transform itself to become fit for the 21st century. But if that goes on paying off debts, the NHS will be on the back foot straight away. The risk then is that a vicious circle develops ... &! bbc.in/1lOPU4z

NHS mental health funding falls in England - FoI figures - BBC News
[ minority of patients. Can't do that with cancer treatment! Public sentiment would rip you apart. ] Figures obtained through a Freedom of Information request showed the budgets for mental health trusts fell by 2% from 2013/14 to 2014/15. This compares to a rise of 2.6% in hospital trusts' operating budgets, according to analysis by the Health Foundation think-tank. The Department of Health said mental health care funding overall was rising. In the year to April 2016 the budget for mental health trusts was projected to rise just 0.3%. Of the 53 out of 59 mental health trusts in England which responded to the FOI request, 29 said their budget would be lower this year than last. [...] funding is not keeping pace - and many are facing cuts. [...] In Scotland, mental health spending was up just 0.1% last year, and down a projected 0.4% this year.

NHS in Scotland facing 'pressure', doctors warn - BBC News
The NHS in Scotland will face "significantly more pressure" in the coming year despite a budget increase, the doctors' leaders have warned. The British Medical Association claimed that "constrained resources" meant the health service was struggling to cope with increasing demands. BMA Scotland chairman Peter Bennie also said the number of jobs lying vacant could have a "detrimental impact". The Scottish government said it had a "clear vision for the future". [...] "The funding gap faced by the NHS set against rising demand and the impact of increasing consultant, specialty doctor and GP vacancies and unfilled trainee posts cannot be ignored, and we must establish ways to make Scotland's NHS a more attractive place to work. [...] NHS will face significantly more pressure as Scotland's population continues to age." [...] [Shona Robinson] ensuring our NHS is sustainable for future generations.

Chancellor urged not to cut vital health fund - BBC News
George "Mr Judgement Call" Osborne // Vital health services in England including stop smoking, obesity and sexual health clinics are at risk, experts are warning. Earlier this year the Chancellor unveiled plans to cut the £2.8bn public health budget by £200m from January. The pot is held by councils so is not covered by the government's promise to protect the health service. But doctors, nurses and other senior health officials say the money is vital to relieving pressure on the wider NHS. A total of 11 groups, including the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges, Royal College of Nursing, NHS Confederation and Faculty of Public Health, have put their names to a letter to George Osborne asking him to reconsider the plans. The letter warned raiding the funds would simply cause greater ill-health and inequality in the population. [...] [PREVENTION>>] [deal with Osborne for 8bn extra a year this Parliament] included making gains from improvements in people's health. [Cut now, pay more later!]

SNP conference: John Swinney to give Scottish councils business rate powers - BBC News
[ so who is actually going to pay tax? to repair roads, winder service, replace street lights, clean the city, police, NHS, ... to fund councils budgets that are already deep in the red and are cut further over the next 5 years. Public libraries, pools, social care, etc etc. dismantling britian. framing it as job creator. as if tax cuts create demand! lol. its a race to the bottom. ] Colin Borland, the Federation of Small Businesses' (FSB) head of external affairs in Scotland, said it was good news that cutting the cost of doing business was "at the heart of the deputy first minister's message". He said: "If used appropriately, these powers could give local economies a welcome boost and it will be interesting to see how many hard-pressed councils will be able to take advantage of them." UK Chancellor George Osborne has promised local authorities in England more flexibility over business rates by 2020.

More maternity units closing doors, union warns - BBC News
The Royal College of Midwives (RCM) said a shortage of midwives was having a major impact and mistakes would "almost certainly be made". Some 42% of units shut down temporarily in the past year, its survey found. The government said it was determined to ensure "every mother and baby gets the highest quality care". A poll of 83 heads of midwifery at NHS trusts found there had been a rise in the number of units that had closed their doors, with 33% having closed the previous year. The RCM said budget cuts were also affecting services, with midwives struggling to cope with a rising birth rate and increasingly complex births. [...] But he added that rising numbers of complex pregnancies were also putting pressure on other UK countries. [...] The RCM says there is a shortage of 2,600 full-time midwives.

Lebenserwartung-Studie: Menschen leben länger - jedoch für hohen Preis - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Eine aktuelle Studie zeigt, wie unterschiedlich die Lebenserwartung weltweit verteilt ist - und wie viel Zeit wir mit Krankheiten leben. [...] Laut der Global Burden of Disease Study 2013 werden die Menschen immer älter. In den 23 Jahren zwischen 1990 und 2013 ist die weltweite Lebenserwartung um 6,2 Jahre gestiegen. Gleichzeitig zeigen die Ergebnisse aber, dass die gewonnenen Jahre häufig mit einem hohen Preis bezahlt werden: Sie gehen zu Lasten der eigenen Gesundheit. [...] 1. Länger leben, länger krank: [...] Hierzulande haben Menschen, die 2013 geboren wurden, laut den Daten eine Lebenserwartung von 80,7 Jahren. Gesund sind sie davon aber lediglich 68,8 Jahre. [...] Ursache für die ungesunden zusätzlichen Lebensjahre sind oft nicht Krankheiten von Herz und Kreislauf oder Krebs, schreiben die Forscher. Stattdessen listen sie Leiden wie Diabetes, Muskel- und Skeletterkrankungen, mentale Krankheiten, Suchtprobleme, neurologische Erkrankungen sowie Hör- und Sehverlust auf.

Headline Numbers: How do you measure inequality? - BBC News
Research from the Institute for Policy Studies found that in 2014, bonuses paid to Wall Street employees had been double the total annual pay earned by all Americans who worked full-time at the federal minimum wage. I crunched the numbers and it turned out that the same was true for the UK. [...] The Office for National Statistics (ONS) had figures out on Wednesday based on the definition that people were in poverty if their income was below 60% of the median level (to find the median income, line up all the people in the country in order of income and take the middle one). It found that almost a third of the UK population had experienced poverty in at least one of the years between 2010 and 2013, which is very high by European standards. The OECD sets out a summary of what has happened to examples of all three of these measures. Across its 34 member countries, the Gini Coefficient rose gradually from 1996, fell slightly for the financial crisis and then resumed its upward path.

min 1:05:00 - biggest injection of equality into the system has been free education, free health care, pension provision and elderly car, child care, unemployment benefits, disability benefits, low income tax credits, minimum wage, workers protection and representation (unionisation), affordability of a lawyer/solicitor, ... - which are being dismantled, where they were available, ... // what they don't talk about is - tax evasion - ppl able to play the system = unworthy increase in wealth and income // competitiveness breeds inequality (with rising labour supply/surplus + Industrial Revolution 2.0 [creating more revenue with less people needed, more people competing for smaller available pie]) - globalisation, flat world, borderless << Seth Godin 'being remarkable, differentiate, Start-up of You (reid hoffmann)' // opportunity >> social mobility, income mobility, gini coefficient // & being lucky and continue taking rent based on your luck // asymmetry of information (arbitrage) - SV

[...] And that notion that capital is the metric, that profit is the metric by which we're going to measure the health of our society is one of the fundamental mistakes of the last 30 years. I would date it in my country to about 1980 exactly, and it has triumphed. [...] But the idea that it's [capitalism] not going to be married to a social compact, that how you distribute the benefits of capitalism isn't going to include everyone in the society to a reasonable extent, that's astonishing to me." nicht teil haben an der Gesellschaft. // &! alternet.org/economy/5-ways-its-become-crime-be-poor-america-punishable-further-impoverishment &! &! bit.ly/1EVuyKz &! bit.ly/1bFWwfU "Perspektivlosigkeit, Wut und Paranoia"

We Are All Venture Capitalists Now | TechCrunch
In Mediocristan, you work fixed hours for a fixed wage. In Extremistan, success is enormously lucrative, but failure is far more common … and, for artists, condemns you to a life of grinding poverty and/or working outside of your chosen field. Of course tech startups also live in Extremistan. So too does venture capital itself, a meta-tournament of picking winners, in which enough money is (hopefully) made from the few big hits to outweigh the inevitable failures– –and so too will we all, soon enough. I’ve argued before that, because software is eating the world, “technology is slowly dragging us all, economically, away from Mediocristan and into Extremistan.” The power of software is such that it gives ever-smaller numbers of people ever-greater leverage. Meanwhile, much of yesterday’s rote Mediocristan work can and will be automated tomorrow. As a result, our economies are moving (slowly, in fits and starts) to a power-law Extremistan future.

Solving the productivity puzzle - BBC News
UK productivity growth (as measured by output per hour worked) has been exceptionally weak since 2008. Productivity growth has actually been weak across the developed economies since the Great Recession but especially so in the UK. Beyond those facts though, there is little agreement. The talk is instead of a "productivity puzzle": solving that puzzle is the key to both a lower government deficit and to higher living standards. [...] [I]t could be that the nature of Britain's recovery explains the low productivity growth. Rather than lower productivity leading to lower real wages (as companies cannot afford to increase pay), it may be that lower real wages have encouraged firms to hire workers rather than investing in new equipment. This could have lowered productivity. [...] Much of it feels more traditionally "sociological" than "economic". // 2nd Industrial Revolution - Software is Eating the World, Self-Employment, contractors, Zero Hour Contracts, etc. &! bit.ly/1aRi7Bw

NEA Raises North Of $3B For Its New Fund | TechCrunch
I consistently hear that venture groups raising capital are oversubscribed. That directly implies that the firehose of cash fueling the venture capital and technology markets has yet to abate in any meaningful sense, if at all. The music is still playing, and at a furious pace. But with interest rates at zero and NASDAQ 5,000 back in our norm, who can be surprised? Regardless of how the technology industry apportions the risk created by that level of spend, we can feel secure in the fact that the same risk is concentrated in the private sector. This helps to protect the average person from investing in something more ephemeral than a Snapchat ad. So if it all goes to hell, it’s mostly the rich kids who will take it in the gut. Viva la tech.

Babies, Brains, Nature and Nurture -- An Interview with Dr Stuart Shanker - Freedomain Radio - YouTube
implications for education of child and adolescent when certain things like self-regulation, deferred gratification, attention span, empathy, sympathy, relating, moral reasoning, avoidance of social interaction (can cause deficits in language and non-verbal interaction), etc etc are not properly developed during early life 0-8yrs old - thus - MANDATORY! kindergarten to be able to observe with qualified personnel and in case to be able to intervene (mitigate downstream effects) and to help the child and the parents. // 35min - adolescent offenders and repeat re-offending (and pre that, addiction and other things are symptoms). mentioned 3 books. // 47:44 - fixed mindset vs. growth mindset = praise for being intelligent (bad parenting) vs praise for doing/did good task X (good parenting). // there is no such thing as a lazy kid, stupid kid or bad kid
