tom watson performs a celebratory dab after jeremy corbyn's pmqs zinger


move over, ed balls - labour has a new lord of the dance. tom watson must have made political history today by performing a celebratory ‘dab’ after jeremy corbyn stung theresa may with a question on the nhs. the pair had been sparring at prime minister’s questions when corbyn asked: “it seems to me that some members don’t want to be concerned about the fact that there are 1.2 million elderly people not getting the care that they need. “the legacy of her government will be blighting our nhs for decades - fewer hospitals, fewer a&e depts, fewer nurses, and fewer people getting the care they need. “we need a government that puts the nhs first and will invest in our nhs.”as corbyn sat down, a wide camera-shot appeared to show watson doing the dab to hammer home corbyn’s f...

senate obamacare repeal would leave 22 million fewer insured


washington — the senate's version of obamacare repeal would leave 22 million fewer people without health insurance in the next decade, according to the congressional budget office, a number that's barely better than the much-maligned house version of the bill. the nonpartisan, highly respected office finds that the recently released senate bill would leave 15 million fewer americans with health insurance next year. that number would continue to climb over the next decade as states which expanded medicaid are forced to shrink their coverage. the cbo found that the house’s version of the legislation would leave 23 million fewer americans with insurance a decade from now. the analysis comes just days after senate gop leaders finally made their bill public, and as they try t...

students have new ways of measuring degrees of success


fewer students are going to college this fall, as enrollment in higher education has fallen for five straight years, according to the national student clearinghouse, which tracks enrollment. some 2.4 million fewer students are enrolled than at the recent peak in 2011.several factors are to blame for declining enrollments. for one, there are fewer students graduating from american high schools these days compared to just a few years ago as the teenage population has dropped off in much of the country. second, because of the strong economy, adults who might consider going back to school to sharpen their skills are opting to stay in their jobs.but a third factor that is rarely discussed is also at play: the rise of alternative types of higher-education credentials in an age when we always ...

a new olympics reality: fewer cities want to host the games


grass-roots opposition to hosting the olympics led boston to withdraw its bid for the 2024 summer games. (charles krupa/ap)as the international olympic committee embarks this week on tours of the two cities competing to host the 2024 olympics, there’s growing sentiment that a consolation prize will be looming. to the victor: the 2024 summer games. and to the runner-up: wait four years and host the 2028 olympics.while the arrangement could be viewed as a testament to the strength of the bids put forth by los angeles and paris, it also reveals a stark reality about hosting an olympics in the 21st century: costs are exorbitant, economic benefits are dubious, and fewer and fewer cities bother even throwing their hats in the ring. chris dempsey knows this better than most. he helped create a ..






more people are voluntarily seeking help for marijuana addiction


marijuana. (sarah l. voisin/the washington post)as marijuana has been increasingly liberalized and decriminalized, fewer people are finding themselves in court-mandated programs for marijuana addiction treatment. this is not particularly surprising: with fewer people landing in court for using marijuana, it follows that fewer would be sentenced to treatment for it.but while mandatory treatment is falling, evidence suggests that the number of people voluntarily seeking treatment is rising.the blue part of each bar in the chart is drawn from annual surveys assessing court-referred marijuana patients in public sector addiction-treatment programs, which have dropped 40 percent since 2011.the orange part of each bar captures data from an annual national population survey that asks marijuana-us.

'top gear' series finale pulls in even fewer viewers than chris evans' last epis


‘top gear’ host matt leblanc has been dealt a blow, with the news that the most recent series finale brought in even fewer viewers than last year’s.matt hosted his first series of ‘top gear’ in 2016, where he was joined by co-presenter chris evans.however, while matt’s tenure as lead presenter seems to have garnered a more positive reception from viewers, it seems there are actually fewer of them than when chris was still on the show.as reported by the sun, this year’s series finale drew in an average of just 1.89 million viewers, 10,000 less than what the newspaper branded chris evans’ “all-time low” last year. neil mockford/alex huckle via getty images matt leblanc and chris evans on the set of 'top gear'

h-1b visa: top 7 indian outsourcing firms received fewer h-1b visas in 2016: rep


washington: top seven india-based outsourcing companies in the us received fewer h-1b visas in 2016 as compared to 2015, and as a group their numbers dropped 37 per cent, according to a new report. the companies experienced a drop of 5,436 approved petitions (37 per cent) in 2016 as compared to previous year, a report by the national foundation for american policy - a washington-based non-profit think-tank said. it said, the 9,356 new h-1b petitions for the top seven indian-based companies approved in fiscal 2016 represent only 0.006 per cent of the us labour force. "while the threat of job loss has long been exaggerated by critics, it reaches illogical proportions when discussing fewer than 10,000 workers in an economy that employs 160 million workers nationwide," t...

firstly, yes currently, drug trafficking carries a mandatory death sentence there (although only if you're carrying more than a certain amount, out of interest).worth considering, however:millions of people fly there every year. very few are caught as drug smugglers, and i would presume even fewer have drugs put in their bag, and even fewer still would get 'caught' like that.you can always lock your bag, wrap it in tape, or otherwise make it harder to break into. if you were looking for a bag to repurpose for drugs, you're presumably more likely to look for one easy to open.i've been to malaysia with drugs - prescription drugs. i declared them openly and they didn't bat an eyelid. didn't even ask to see them. so don't get worried about prescription drugs vs illegal narcotics, like ...






know how to cut calories the right way


burning more calories than consuming is the most basic principle of weight loss. if intense workout sounds too hard for you, then the best way to achieve that weight loss target is to simply consume a whole lot fewer calories. however, while taking this decision, you need to remember that cutting too many calories can actually have the opposite effect, completely stalling your weight loss efforts.thus, understanding the difference between consuming fewer calories and starving self is of utmost importance. to begin with it, the first things you need to know is resting metabolic rate (rmr), or the number of calories your body burns at rest.fitness (photo: dreams time)if you cut down calories without considering your rmr, the first thing that’ll happen is that your rmr will also drop. en...






ben mcadoo already resorting to the us-against-the-world mantra


ben mcadoo is absolutely correct about this:“a lot of people are counting us out, and so be it,’’ the giants coach said wednesday.his team is 0-2, and his offense has scored fewer points and run for fewer yards than any team in the nfl. confidence in him, and his ability to yank his team out of its offensive malaise, is at an all-time low. yes, indeed, people are counting the giants out, doubt which mcadoo is sure to use on his battered team this week.“it’s good to have an edge,’’ he said. “i think working with an edge motivates a little bit more.’’there is no way to know what that edge will do for the giants on sunday, when they look to reclaim their season against the eagles at lincoln financial field.“we’ll find out,’’ mcadoo said. “great place to play. tou...






the caps playoff hats look like nationals gear. that’s not an accident.

weighing college choices? here are three factors to consider


princeton university (associated press)college acceptances are starting to roll in for high school seniors, and for the next several weeks, much of the focus of the national media will be on those students vying to get into the three dozen or so most selective colleges and universities in the country.by may, we’ll hear about schools such as stanford, harvard, and princeton that accepted fewer than 1 out of every 10 applicants this year. there will be more records set for applications and for the number of students rejected, including hundreds of high-school valedictorians.although these elite institutions enroll fewer than 6 percent of american college students, you might conclude from these stories that it’s difficult to get into college in the united states. not so. the vast majority...






russia probe pile-on: no fewer than 9 teams investigating collusion, meddling


the expansive investigation into russian meddling and possible collusion with trump associates has grown so vast that no fewer than nine congressional committees and federal agencies are now examining some offshoot of the controversy.and despite the inquiries to date having produced no indictments or hard evidence of collusion between the president's men and a foreign power, even more officials and entities are looking to bite off a piece of the probe. “the main problem is that after months and months of multiple investigations, no one has found any evidence of collusion,” a congressional source told fox news. “so the democrats are trying to shift the focus from collusion to obstruction, and since it doesn’t look like that will pan out for them either, they surely have some new a...






apathy and narcissism are not the reasons fewer young people vote


engaging young people in mainstream politics is a bit of a vicious circle.politicians' penchants for doublespeak and dodging questions mean that generations y and z don't exactly find them relatable. many young people are, at best, turned off from modern politics or, at worst, alienated by it. politicians, in turn, have a tendency to disregard young people's needs as they are less likely to vote. and so the cycle continues.but are young people politically apathetic? i don't think they are. it's true that fewer 18-24 year-olds may be turning out to vote than their older counterparts but there is evidence to show that they are more engaged in other ways.online activism is on the rise and it's even been mooted that protesting is 'the new brunch'.there has been some debate about how ma...






how technology killed the conversationalist


when mobile messaging service whatsapp tipped over one billion monthly users in 2016, you could be forgiven for thinking that this was a sign that we are being more social than ever; living in a world of updates, sharing our every moment and mouthful and controlling the way our lives are being played out with the press of a thumb.although we're more connected than ever, does it mean we are actually more social?pubs, the cornerstone of people's social lives for generations, are closing at an alarming rate with 10,000 fewer pubs in uk since 2002.  there are fewer social occasions where the pub and alcohol has a role to play in people's lives. mid-week drink catch ups and saturday afternoon sessions are becoming a thing of the past. what's driving this? health considerations and alcohol ...






it's time to embrace ai to create smarter humans


elon musk, ceo of tesla was recently quoted saying: "there will be fewer and fewer jobs a robot cannot do better." in his impassioned speech he asked what meaning humans will have without jobs. this follows others including stephen hawking, bill gates and mark carney, governor of the bank of england, who have made comments on the dangers of robotics and ai "destroying jobs". musk argued that if humans want to add value, they should embrace a "merger of biological intelligence and machine intelligence". although this might sound like a sci-fi movie in the works, musk's suggestions really do extend to the symbiosis of man and machine. what's more, the sentiment of humans working together with artificial intelligence technology is an important issue for businesses and consumers. it's...

bosses, be warned: your biggest kiss-up could be your biggest backstabber


a new study finds a link between top managers who flatter their chief executive and those managers' willingness to bad-mouth the ceo to outsiders. (istock)one of the most widely held — if rarely practiced — ideas in management is that it's important for chief executives to encourage different opinions from the people who work for them. to find the dissenting voices who won't just try to flatter or praise, but remind leaders when they are wrong. doing so, the thinking goes, will lead to better professional performance — stronger decision-making, fewer missteps and more innovative ideas.but it could also have a personal upside for chief executives: they might have fewer backstabbing managers bad-mouthing them to the media.a new study recently featured in the harvard business ...

trump’s economy is doing (slightly) worse than obama’s


president trump has made the economy so much better that it has added 186,000 fewer jobs in his first seven months than it did in president barack obama’s last seven months.indeed, the economy added only a disappointing 156,000 jobs in august and a disappointing 41,000 fewer jobs than we thought it had in june and july, and saw the share of 25- to 54 year-olds who should be in the prime of their working years who are in fact doing so fall a — here’s that word again — disappointing 0.3 percentage points, erasing almost all of its progress since the start of the year. oh, and wages aren’t going up any faster; pay is growing the same 2.5 percent a year it was when trump took office.

do we need more diversity in the fintech sector?


the technology sector has been criticised over the years for its lack of diversity. in 2016 the us equal employment opportunity commission (eeoc) published a report on diversity in tech and the findings were not encouraging. the tech sector employs fewer women and fewer minorities than other private sector industries, and this is especially true of management and leadership roles. 80% of executives in high tech were found to be men, and 57% of executives were white.the uk tech sector reports slightly better figures than the us. a survey conducted by start up accelerator wayra found that tech entrepreneurs in london are three times more likely to be women, compared to silicon valley, and twice as likely to be black or come from an ethnic minority group. however this survey only looked at th

tesla ends solarcity's door-to-door sales pitches


these in-person sales were sometimes effective, but it's not hard to see why tesla would shake up its strategy. it's indicative of a maturing home solar energy market, particularly in tesla's home turf of california. why chase after fewer and fewer customers through sales reps, especially when you're effectively asking homeowners for an on-the-spot commitment to a solar panel installation? tesla has already said it would focus more on saving money with its solar business than boosting its sales, and there's no question that face-to-face sales are expensive when success is far from guaranteed.as it is, solarcity's methods aren't exactly in sync with tesla's upscale, relatively low-pressure sales approach. while the electric car and solar panel groups sometimes aim at very different ...
