					27% of GP partners said they have thought about handing their contract back over the last year, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 27% of GP partners said they have thought about handing their contract back over the last year: Recent research into the medical industry, in light of the move towards sessional work among GP workers, has uncovered that over a quarter (27%) of British GPs have considered handing in their contract over the last 12 months.   The study by Pulse polled over 800 UK GPs at the start of 2022 and uncovered that a little over 1% said they already work for a private provider on a part time basis; with even less stating they were employed by a private provider full time.   The Government has a target of increasing the number of GPs in Britain by 6,000, with an additional 26,000 practice staff by 2024. Furthermore, over four in 10 partner (41%) would 'consider becoming a salaried GP if given the correct offer'.   This target was made to encourage more people to work as GPs for the NHS; with around half of GPs being salaried or locum. The main reasons cited for this change were chronic underfunding and they felt overworked.   In addition, 47% of GPs would 'consider working for an online private GP service if the terms were acceptable'; with 9% saying they would do so on a full-time basis. On the other hand, 42% of those surveyed said they would not consider an online private GP service for employment, leaving 11% unsure.   Dr Kevin Hollier, Hereford and Worcester GP and has recently changed to being a salaried GP, said: 'I recognised that I was feeling increasingly burnt out in my role as a partner and therefore felt it necessary to make this difficult decision in order to protect my own health and wellbeing [and] improve my work life balance and family life.'

					77% of UK SMEs either do not have or are unsure of their strategies to decrease their carbon emissions, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					   77% of UK SMEs either do not have or are unsure of their strategies to decrease their carbon emissions: A survey into business leaders' favoured approaches to reducing their carbon emissions has found that almost eight in 10 are not aware of or do not have a strategy. Furthermore, around half of those surveyed said they didn't know what the term 'net-zero' meant.       The study, by YouGov for Lloyds Bank, polled of over 1,000 SME businesses in the UK at the start of 2022 and aimed to illicit their approaches to reducing carbon emissions and net-zero. The survey found that just over three-quarters (76%) do not have comprehensive strategies to tackling the issue ' with many stating they lacked the in-house capabilities and funds to put in place such strategies.       When asked about whether they knew about their own carbon footprint, just 12% said they had calculated their carbon footprint. In addition, a third said their lack of knowledge meant they could not gain a better understanding of the problem, with a quarter saying they didn't have the funds or the time to improve their knowledge.       The issue of how to reduce carbon emissions is further exemplified with over 75% of participants saying they do not have ambitious enough targets to reach net-zero. Many stated a lack of finance, time, and understanding as the main reasons for not having an ambitious enough target.       In addition, there are over five and a half million SMEs in the UK, meaning over four million SMEs not have net-zero targets which are not challenging enough.       Adam Rainey, commercial director of business banking for Lloyds Bank, said: "While our nation's small businesses recognise the importance of tackling climate change, there are real issues with understanding how to get there ' including calculating carbon emissions and even the meaning of net-zero. Fortunately, there's a whole host of support available to help businesses make their first steps in becoming greener."

				</title>
				<description>
					 72% of business leaders say their companies have started to use mobile technology and cloud: A recent study into which technologies are most prominently used by businesses has found that 72% have adopted mobile technology and cloud. Furthermore, almost half (48%) are using IoT (Internet of Things); the third most used technology, according to the polling.   The study by BluQube polled UK business leaders and uncovered the most used technologies in UK business. The survey also found that just 13% of business leaders use robotics and interoperable systems.   When looking at the reasons behind using new types of technology, 65% cited 'improved efficiency' as a key factor; with 44% saying it 'saved them money. In addition, 39% said the move to a more digital way of working helped with their customers' experience.   There have been some big changes in the type and amount of technology used, according to the research, with 76% saying they sped up digital development due to the pandemic. Furthermore, 36% of business leaders said that the introduction of new technologies has helped with remote or hybrid working.   Improved sustainability was cited as a key benefit by 36% of business leaders, with 32% saying improved transparency is a main factor in adopting a more digital way of working. In addition, 27% of business leaders found their employee engagement increased when using more technologies.   Augmented reality is a relatively new technology, however, more than a fifth (21%) of business leaders said they have started to use it in their business. Furthermore, artificial intelligence and machine learning have seen an increase in use, with three in 10 saying they are now using the technologies.   Simon Kearsley, Chief Executive of BluQube, said: 'By using the right innovative technologies to automate and streamline time-consuming, repetitive tasks, businesses can unlock the true potential of their staff, and free up team time and headspace to focus on the more strategic tasks.'

					Two-thirds of primary school teachers feel confident in supporting children with LGBT+ matters, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 Two-thirds of primary school teachers feel confident in supporting children with LGBT+ matters: A recent study has uncovered that 66% of primary school teachers feel they can help their students with LGBT+ matters, leaving a third unconfident in supporting children in this area.   The survey by TeacherTapp polled just under 7,000 teachers in both primary and secondary schools about Pride activities during Pride month in June 2022. The study found that three in 10 primary school teachers had heard students offer support or kind words to their LGBT+ friends, with 6% having heard of such behaviour through colleagues.   When asked about what Pride events had happened in their school, 15% of primary school teachers said they had done something to celebrate Pride month or educate their students about the LGBT+ community; an increase of 3% from 2021 and 12% from 2019.   Secondary schools appear to place Pride events higher on their agenda, with 56% of teachers saying their school is doing something for Pride month; a 6% increase from 2021 and a 38% increase from 2018. In addition, eight in 10 secondary school staff report being confident in their ability to help LGBT+ matters amongst their students.   The most commonly cited form of Pride activity in secondary schools was talking about the subject in lessons (42%), found the survey, with running assemblies dedicated the Pride month (34%) also being common. In addition, 5% of secondary school teachers say their school has participated in wider community events, such as a Pride march.   Furthermore, seven in 10 secondary school teachers report hearing kind words being said from students to their LGBT+ friends. On the other hand, secondary school teachers are almost twice as likely to hear students use derogatory terms related to gender identity or sexuality as primary school teachers.

					 7 out of 10 Brits believe the UK should stop using Russia's oil and gas: A survey of UK adults has revealed that nearly 7 in 10 (69%) believe that continuing to use oil and gas from Russia is unacceptable and should be stopped -- even if it makes energy bills in the UK more costly.

					42% of Brits have an unused internet router in their homes; leaving around 22 million redundant ISP routers in the UK, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 42% of Brits have an unused internet router in their homes; leaving around 22 million redundant ISP routers in the UK: A recent survey, into how companies and the British public can use routers better, has revealed that four in 10 (42%) have an internet router that they no longer use, with experts estimating there are 22 million redundant ISP routers in UK homes.   Furthermore, 14% of those surveyed said they have multiple unused routers in the home.   When asked about why they have so many routers in their house, 59% said they didn't know how to recycle their old router, with a further 15% saying they have a second router sent to them by their internet service provider, alongside their older, working router.   The study by Uswitch polled 2,000 UK adults in October 2021 to find out if there is a more preferable way for Brits to get internet into their homes. The research uncovered that three-quarters of British adults want a universal router that can be used by any internet service provider; in order to reduce the amount of e-waste.   Six in 10 consumers believe bigger companies can do more to help save the planet, with Sky Broadband being voted as being the poorest when it comes to helping customers recycle their old routers.   One of the reasons for so many redundant internet routers could be the desire to have the best connection possible. The advancements in technology allow for better internet routers to be made, meaning there are many older routers not in use.

				<description>
					 Premier Inn ranks top hotel chain in Britain, with an average customer score of 79%: A recent survey of the hospitality industry has revealed that when it comes to satisfaction, customers gave Premier Inn an average score of 79%, making the company the most popular big hotel chain in the UK.   The study by Which? polled over 2,300 members of the public from July 2020 to October 2021, and asked them to rank the hotels in many areas, including bathrooms, cleanliness, and value for money. The survey also looked at a range of hotel chains, with 24 large and 6 small chains being observed.   Although Premier Inn was ranked as the best hotel chain, the smaller chain, Hotel du Vin, achieved an average customer score of 80%; with both hotels costing an average of £150 for a one-night stay.    For the ninth year in a row, Britannia Hotels ranked as the worst hotel chain in the UK with an average customer satisfaction score of 49%. Furthermore, four in 10 of those surveyed had visited a Britannia hotel with 51% saying they had encountered an issue during their stay; cleanliness being the most common problem.   Mercure hotels were ranked just above Britannia with an average customer rating of 52%. However, like Britannia, they received a two-star rating for cleanliness alongside bathrooms, communal areas and value for money.   Rory Boland, travel editor for Which? said: 'The impressive, budget-friendly Premier Inn is our pick of the large chains, and Hotel du Vin offers high quality stays in interesting locations.'

				<description>
					 8% of NHS workers have experienced discrimination from patients, relatives or members of the public while at work: The 2021 National NHS Staff Survey has uncovered that that just under 8% of the NHS staff members polled experienced discrimination in the workplace over the last 12 months; with this figure rising to 19% for 'BAME' (Black, Asian and minority ethnic) staff.

					The more time teenagers spend on social media, the less likely they are to be satisfied with their life, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 The more time teenagers spend on social media, the less likely they are to be satisfied with their life: A recent survey has uncovered that 19-year-olds are less likely to be content with their life if they spend a significant amount of time on social media. Furthermore, 11 to 13-year-old girls and 14 to 15-year-old boys who spent a significant amount of time using social media were least likely to say they were satisfied with life.   Scientists theorised that the vulnerability that certain age groups face towards social media is linked to brain, hormonal or social changes during development.   The study was conducted by researchers from the universities of Cambridge and Oxford and the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour. They polled over 72,000 people up to seven times between 2011 and 2018, with a follow-up study in the years after to specifically observe 10 to 21-year-olds.   For 16 to 21-year-olds, it was reported that those who spent over seven hours a day on social media were less likely to be satisfied with their situation, than those who spend three hours or less on their phones.   Although there was a correlation between the amount of time spent on social media, life satisfaction and age, the study could not help determine the individuals most likely to be affected.    Professor Bernadk Dubicka, expert in child mental health at the University of Manchester, said: "This study reflects the complexity seen in vulnerable adolescents in clinical practice, and finally moves away from the unhelpful dichotomy about whether social media is or isn't harmful. It will be vital to build on this research to understand both the harmful as well as supportive role of social media in young people's lives."

					56% of UK adults believe they have a healthy diet, with women less likely to be happy with their eating habits, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 56% of UK adults believe they have a healthy diet, with women less likely to be happy with their eating habits: A recent survey into Brit's eating habits has uncovered that 56% of adults think their relationship with food is good, with women (49%) less likely to be happy with their diet than men (64%).   The study, by Benenden Health, studied 1,000 British adults to find out what they think about the diets they have. The survey found some differences in ages, with younger people (43%) less likely to feel happy about their eating habits than older generations.   Many experts say they believe discussions about body image in today's society has created unreal expectations for younger generations, causing them to feel worse about the way they look. Filters can cause people to appear differently to how they do in 'normal life' in order to achieve the perceived 'perfect' look.   When asked about how their mental wellbeing has changed over the past few years, around two-fifths of respondents (42%) said they had felt worse since the start of the pandemic.    According to the research, the average age for someone to think about dieting or losing weight is 30, with a quarter of those surveyed saying they first thought about it between the ages of 16 and 25-years-old. Just over a fifth (22%) of Brits said they have never considered losing weight or going on a diet.    The research also found that losing weight does not always lead to people feeling happier about themselves. Three-quarters of survey participants said they have tried to lose weight using various diets, with just one in five (21%) saying it made them feel happier.   Cheryl Lythgoe, matron at Benenden Health, said: 'It is no great surprise to find that so many individuals in the UK have an unhealthy relationship with food. From a young age ' especially for more recent generations - we are surrounded by conversations about body image, diets and comparisons with others.'

					10 UK art museums ranked in the top 100 most visited art museums in the world, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 10 UK art museums ranked in the top 100 most visited art museums in the world: A recent survey into the most popular art museums in the world has uncovered that 10 of the top 100 are located in the UK. Paris (10) is the only city that has more museums in the top 100 than London (8), with the World Museum in Liverpool and the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh also included in the list.   The study by the Art Newspaper, found that there were 71 million visitors to art museums around the world in 2021, an increase from the 54 million in 2020. However, the pandemic is still having a significant impact, found the research, as levels are still down on the 230 million people who visited art museums in 2019.   Although the UK has the most museums within the top 100, Russia has four of the top 10 most visited art museums; located in Moscow and St Petersburg. The most visited UK museum in 2021 was the British Museum in London with just over 1.3million visitors; an increase of 4% from 2020.    While the pandemic affected all art museums differently, Europe was hit the worst, according to the data, with British, Dutch and German art museums being shut for an average of 142 days over the year.    The National Gallery recorded the greatest decrease in visitors over the last couple of years, with a fall of 41% from 2020, and a drop of 88% from 2019. Despite being open for the same number of days in 2021, the British Museum had significantly more visitors.   When comparing the number of visitors in 2020 and 2021, the Multimedia Art Museum in Moscow was shown to have had the greatest increase, rising by 421%. On the other hand, the Faberge Museum in St Petersburg saw the greatest decrease in attendees, with -42%.

					The UK ranked as the fourth best nation to be a software engineer, behind America, Switzerland and Canada, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 The UK ranked as the fourth best nation to be a software engineer, behind America, Switzerland and Canada: A recent survey into the average annual salaries of software engineers from different nations has uncovered that the UK offers the fourth best salary (£54,801 per annum). The US ranked top, with an average annual salary of £76,521.   Switzerland and Canada complete the top three with average salaries of £72,198 and £56,819 respectively per annum.   The poll by Codingame observed participants from their community of over two-million developers and tech recruiters, in an attempt to uncover more about the average salaries in the industry. The study also found that over four in 10 American respondents earned over £80,000 per year, with 5% saying their salary was over £160,000 per year.   While their average salary in the UK might be lower than those in the US, Switzerland and Canada, software engineers still earn more than the national average, according to the research.   In contrast, the study also identified the countries that offer the lowest wages for the industry, with Tunisia ranking bottom with an average salary of £13,405 per annum. Furthermore, Morocco and India were listed as the countries with the second and third lowest wages for software engineers, with average annual salaries of £14,620 and £15,605 respectively.   Europe was shown to be the best continent to be a software engineer, with five of the top 10 nations being in Europe. Behind Switzerland and the UK, Germany ranked as the next best European country, in sixth, with an average annual salary of £48,995.   France and Spain ranked in as ninth and tenth position, with average annual salaries of £38,003 and £31,492 respectively.   Although it may seem like software engineers should apply their trade in the US, the study does not take into account the cost-of-living in each individual country; which could explain the higher salaries in certain places.

					Increasing inflation and the cost-of-living crisis having effect on sustainable shopping, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 Increasing inflation and cost-of-living crisis having effect on sustainable shopping: A recent study into people's shopping habits has uncovered that rising costs are having a significant effect on their ability to shop sustainably. However, one in five of UK shoppers said that sustainable shopping was most important to them.   In addition, one in five UK shoppers and one in four German shoppers followed through with buying more sustainable packaging or foods with local ingredients.   The survey by Quantilope polled 1,200 people from both the UK and Germany to feature in the 2022 consumer trends in sustainability report. They, also, found that three-quarters of respondents said they wanted to start shopping more sustainably.    When asked about which food and drinks brands they choose, eight in 10 Brits said they based their choices on price. However, in Germany, the study found that taste was the leading factor when deciding what brands to buy.   Another disparity between German and British consumers revealed by the survey was that 39% of Germans prioritise buying food with local ingredients; compared to just 19% in the UK.   The study also looked at ways the respondents think they could help support sustainability, with 34% stating they were willing to pay more taxes if the money would be used to help the environment. On the other hand, 39% were opposed to the idea with 27% undecided.   In both the UK and Germany combined, around three-quarters say they actively try to reduce waste (77% of Brits and 71% of Germans). Furthermore, just over half (51%) for both countries say they plan to buy less of items with plastic packaging in the future.   Peter Aschmoneit, chief-executive and co-founder of Quantilope, said: "While consumers expect brands to take responsibility for the sustainability of their products, they are more than willing to do their bit to save the planet. However, there are barriers that need to be removed, or reduced, to make sustainable behaviours easier."

					One in five millennials have changed their diet in an attempt to help the climate, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 One in five millennials have changed their diet in an attempt to help the climate: A recent survey has uncovered that 20% of millennials have altered what they eat as a response to the increasing impact climate change is having; with many choosing plant-based options instead of meat.   The study by Compare by Review asserts that animal products, such as meat and dairy, account for almost half of all greenhouse gas emissions from food. The knowledge of this has resulted in more than half (54%) the respondents polled to identify as 'flexitarian'. The research also highlighted that cutting meat and dairy products from your diet can decrease your food carbon footprint by up to 73%.   The younger generations are also more mindful about how travelling affects the environment, found the survey, with almost half (48%) of millennials anticipating more staycations in the future. In addition, 77% of 18 ' 29-year-olds state sustainability as a key factor when making travel decisions, compared to 48% of those aged 51 or over.   When asked about their driving habits, it was revealed that millennials, on average, drive 2,000 less miles than baby boomers and own fewer vehicles too. Many of the younger respondents also revealed that they choose to cycle rather than drive, with 46% of 18 ' 34-year-olds being of the opinion that prioritising cyclists in cities is important.     Younger generations more likely to have a pet       The research also found that the younger generations will often choose to have a pet, with 62% of pet owners being either millennial or Gen Z; compared to 32% of pet owners being baby boomers.

					90% of British adults think it is up to manufacturers and retailers to take responsibility for recycling plastics, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 90% of British adults think it is up to manufacturers and retailers to take responsibility for recycling plastics: A recent survey into global opinions about plastic waste has revealed that nine in 10 British adults are of the opinion that retailers and manufacturers need to take responsibility for reducing, reusing and recycling plastic waste.   In addition, nine in 10 Brazilian, Chinese and Mexican adults believe manufacturers and retailers should do more to combat plastic waste; with 89% of Swedes believing the same.   The study by Ipsos polled over 20,000 adults, under the age of 75, from 28 countries as part of their Global Advisor Online Platform. The survey also found that almost nine in 10 (89%) Columbians think single-use plastics should be banned, followed by Chile and Mexico (88%).   On the other hand, most Japanese (63%) and many American (45%) adults believe there is still a place for single-use plastics, and it should not be banned.   When asked what measures should be put in place to prevent plastic pollution, 88% say they want an international treaty to combat the issue; with Latin American nations (93%) most likely to agree.     The poll found that a clear majority, in all countries surveyed (82%), prefer products that come with less plastic packaging. However, Japan had the lowest number of people who stated that they prefer less plastic packaging (56%), with America (71%) and the Netherlands (73%) close behind.   Stuart Clarke, Ipsos Australia director, said: "These results make it very clear that there is a strong consensus globally that single-use plastics should be taken out of circulation as quickly as possible. People want to do the right thing. An average of 82 percent of people surveyed want to buy products that minimise plastic packaging. They want that change to happen quickly and they want their governments to support it."

					56% of British engineers have received an increase in pay over the last year, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 56% of British engineers have received an increase in pay over the last year: A recent survey into the engineering sector has uncovered that 56% of UK-based engineers have received a wage increase in the last 12 months, increasing the average salary by over 2% on last year's figures to £58,108.   The study by The Engineer polled nearly 800 permanent and part-time engineers from a range of sectors to illicit trends within the engineering industry. The research also found that food and drink (consumer goods) engineers were the least content with their salary; however, three quarters (74%) said they could see themselves in the same job in five years.   When asked about how happy they were with their current line of work, 42% of engineers said they would consider a career change. In addition, 51% of oil and gas engineers said they would consider leaving the industry, with defence and security (49%) just behind.   On the other hand, the research found that many people enjoy their chosen career, with 75% of material engineers stating they are happy in the role they have. Furthermore 67% of apprentice engineers said they enjoyed their job; despite being paid the least out of all the sub-sectors.   In addition, the sub-sector with the highest average wage was energy/renewable/nuclear engineers with a salary of almost £63,000 per annum. Despite this, just over four in 10 energy/renewable/nuclear engineers are content with the amount of money they are getting.    When asked if they feel valued in their role or not, 61% of apprentice engineers said they do not; with more material engineers feeling as if they are valued (54%).   Robert Harper, managing director of CBSbutler, said: 'We are noticing a spike in the number of vacancies being advertised, and whilst there is also an increase in the number of engineers looking for new roles (be that permanent or contract), that increase is not sufficient to fill all the new vacancies.  We are in the midst of a skills shortage.'

					39% of tradeswomen say they're not taken seriously in the trades industry because of their gender, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 39% of tradeswomen say they're not taken seriously in the trades industry because of their gender: A recent survey into what it's like to be a woman in the trades industry has revealed that four in 10 tradeswomen feel they're not taken as seriously as men due to their gender. Furthermore, one in 10 say they have been refused jobs because they are a woman.   Furthermore, almost one in 10 (9%) state they haven't been allowed to do their job because they're a woman.   The study by Rated People polled women in the trades industry about their experiences and how they feel they differ from tradesmen. The survey found that one in seven had personal safety concerns while working.   When looking at which specific job had the most female workers, it was found that eight in 10 cleaners are women, with every other profession having more men than women. Just 1% of carpenters and joiners are women, found the survey, with male carpenters getting paid almost double that of a female carpenter.   On the other hand, 8% of the female participants said that they have been able to help female clients who do not feel safe having a tradesman do the work. Three in 10 women said they would feel more comfortable hiring a tradeswoman, rather than a male tradesman.   In addition, three in 10 clients (30%) who hired a tradesman would rate them five-out-of-five; with that increasing to 38% for women. Combined, 94% of clients would rate their tradesperson's work either four or five stars.   Although there were over 27,000 searches for painters last year, just 32% of women said they would consider becoming a tradeswoman, compared to 47% of men.    The survey also found that the number of women participating in trade courses has gone up by 27%.

					Three-quarters of English and Welsh adults say they have been enjoying more time outside since the beginning of the pandemic, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Three-quarters of English and Welsh adults say they have been enjoying more time outside since the beginning of the pandemic: A recent survey into what will get more young people to enjoy going outside has revealed that three-quarters of British adults say they have been going outside more since the start of the pandemic. However, the study also uncovered that many do not know the rules they are expected to follow in the countryside.   The poll, by outdoor footwear brand Merrell, surveyed English and Welsh adults to look into how they choose to spend their time outdoors. However, it was revealed that 49% of those surveyed said they didn't know about the Countryside Code, with nearly two-thirds of those being between the ages of 16 and 24-years-old.   The Countryside Code is a set of rules, that you must follow, and guides that you are recommended to follow when enjoying activity in the British countryside. Although the code has been in place for nearly 70 years, the study supports the idea that it should be changed with more and more people choosing to spend time outdoors; especially young people.   Being out in the countryside is proven to increase mental wellbeing, with 43% of 18-35-year-olds believing it has improved their mental health. Furthermore, 83% of young people say they are more likely to spend time outdoors since the start of the pandemic.   Although 51% of those surveyed said they had heard of the Countryside Code, one in 10 said they thought it was a book by a famous author.

					61% of financial service organisations are using AI, or plan to in the future, survey reveals

				<description>
					 61% of financial service organisations are using AI, or plan to in the future: A recent survey into the use of artificial intelligence in financial services has revealed that over six in 10 companies in the sector are using, or are planning to use AI in the future. However, almost a third (31%) say they are still waiting for a return on their investment when it comes to AI.    Furthermore, 35% said they were in a test-and-learn phase of AI adoption showing the room for growth in the sector.   The survey, by Quantexa and AI Forum, polled 640 senior business and technology managers with most coming from North America (56%) and Europe (31%). The study aimed to illicit the how AI is used in companies today, and how they plan to use it in the future.   When asked why they wouldn't use artificial intelligence in the near future, a third of respondents stated 'data readiness', the 'ability to use internal and external data', and 'making AI operational' as the three main issues.   The study also looked into the main uses for AI, with risk detection and customer onboarding accounting for 29% of all primary usage. In addition, the most common use cases for AI include customer management and data insight (13%).    Although many people are not seeing a big enough return on investment through artificial intelligence, 41% of those surveyed said their ROI was good; with 8% stating an outstanding return.   Vishal Marria, Chief Executive and Founder of Quantexa, said: 'AI and technological advances such as entity resolution are helping close this data decision gap in a strategic and measured way, allowing organizations to connect siloed data to create a meaningful connected view, that directly leads to higher accuracy, productivity and ultimately trusted decision making.'

				<description>
					 'Fear of being judged' found to be one of the top reasons why girls disengage with sport during their teenage years: A survey of teenage girls has found that more than two-fifths who consider themselves 'sporty' at primary school (43%) lose interest in taking part in sports and physical activity as they move through their teenage years. Asking respondents about their reasons for the drop off in interest, the survey found that 73% cited a dislike of others watching them, while 68% cited a fear of being judged. A lack of confidence was also a top reason given as to why teenage girls no longer want to take part in physical activity (61%).

					7% of parents admit to 'playing the system' to get their child into a better school, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 7% of parents admit to 'playing the system' to get their child into a better school: A survey by Zoopla has revealed that 7% of parents admit they have used the system to their advantage to get their children into their preferred school.   The poll studied 1,000 parents with children between the ages of four and 16 in the UK and also found that a quarter admit to bending the rules.   Of the parents who say they bent the rules, 16% stated they made a 'voluntary donation' to the school to guarantee a place; with a further 5% offering the school a bribe. Furthermore, 27% said they exaggerated their religious beliefs to get their child into a specific school, or lied about regularly attending religious services.   When looking at the reasons why parents turned to these measures to get their child into a specific school, it was uncovered that housing in the catchment area for high performing schools could cost an extra £82,000.    The research also revealed that another way that parents successfully get their child into a specific school, is to register their son or daughter at a relative's address which resides in the catchment area for that school, with one in 10 admitting to lying about their home address.   The number of schools being rated as 'good' or 'outstanding' has also increased from just 68% in 2010 to 86% in 2021.   The department for Education has said they will increase the number of places at sought-after schools with a £500million grant for schools nationwide.   Geoff Barton, general secretary of the Association of School and College Leaders, said: 'The wider issue here is the fact that competitive pressure for school places is often driven by Ofsted ratings with parents chasing places at schools with 'good' or 'outstanding' ratings.'

				</title>
				<description>
					 68% of businesses in the tourism and hospitality industry say they have recently been in financial difficulty: A  survey in the tourism and hospitality sector has revealed that nearly seven in 10 businesses believe they are not financially stable, with just over half saying they have between zero and two-months-worth of the cash reserves needed to keep their company in business.   The study by the Scottish Tourism Alliance polled over 1,300 Scottish respondents gaining an accurate representation of the tourism and hospitality industry in Scotland. Of the respondents in the survey, 36% had non-serviced accommodation with just over a quarter (26%) being from the serviced accommodation sector.   In addition, one in 10 of those surveyed were from the food and drink sector (pub, bar, cafeacute; or restaurant), with the sector viewing the retention of the 12.5% VAT rate as a major priority for recovering the tourism and hospitality industry.   When asked what has caused financial worry within their sector, just over half (52%) the respondents polled said they have been impacted by staff shortages, the majority coming from the hospitality sector.   Cancellations   Looking at December 2021, the survey asked respondents what level of cancellations they experienced, with just over a quarter reporting they had received no cancellations (26%), compared to 38% who had experienced less than 50% of cancellations and 37% who recorded more than half of their bookings being cancelled.    Of the companies experiencing more than 50% of bookings cancelled in December 2021, tour and coach operators were the worst affected (49%), followed by food and drink (47%), serviced accommodation (45%) and unserviced accommodation (24%), with attractions (19%) also seeing half of their bookings cancelled.   Looking at the bookings for January to March 2022, the survey revealed that the situation has improved somewhat, with a third of respondents reporting no cancellations (32%), while 44% reported less than 50% cancellations, and a quarter (24%) said they have experienced half of their bookings being cancelled.    Of the companies who have experienced more than 50% of bookings cancelled, tour and coach operators were the worst affected (36%), followed by serviced accommodation (28%), and food and drink (23%). Unserviced accommodation (17%) and attractions (14%) also saw more than half their bookings cancelled.

					41% think that research and development will benefit most from digital transformation, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 41% think that research and development will benefit most from digital transformation: A recent survey has revealed that over four in 10 experts in the pharmaceutical industry believe that research and development will gain the most from digital transformation out of the internal departments.   The study by GlobalData polled 177 pharmaceutical professionals in November and December 2021 and uncovered that marketing and sales was thought to be second most likely to benefit from digital transformation, with 28% of respondents predicting so.   When asked about which technology they think will cause the most disruption to the pharmaceutical industry, four in 10 industry experts said that artificial intelligence will change the industry the most. In addition, just under a quarter (24%) said that the use of big data will disrupt the pharmaceutical industry the most.   Virtual and augmented reality, alongside cloud computing (1%) were thought to become the least disruptive to the pharmaceutical industry; with only 2% believing 3D printing will significantly disrupt the industry.   Of the change that digital transformation will bring, 9% predict that IT will benefit the most from, with 8% of the opinion that logistics will significantly benefit.   Furthermore, both procurement and administration were found to be least likely to benefit, with just 3% and 4% of respondents thinking so. Eight percent (8 %) felt that other internal departments would benefit the most from the change in the pharmaceutical industry.   Robotics, digital media blockchains and application programming interfaces were cited as the most likely technology to cause major disruption to the pharmaceutical industry by 3% of industry experts.    In addition, cybersecurity was thought to be the most disruptive technology to the pharmaceutical sector by 5% of respondents, with 9% of experts citing social media.

					Over four in 10 UK workers would like to start their own business, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 Over four in 10 UK workers would like to start their own business: A survey has uncovered that 42% of Brits (around 13.5 million workers) dream of creating their own business. Furthermore, three-quarters said their plans to create a new start-up have been accelerated due to the Covid-19 pandemic.   The study, by Quickbooks, polled 14,000 people from the UK (3,500), the U.S. (8,000) and Canada (2,500) in November 2021.   In the UK, London was found to be the region with the most aspiring entrepreneurs, with 64% of survey respondents living in the Capital saying they want to start their own company. This was followed by Northern Ireland (51%) and the North West (48%).   When asked why they want to start their own company, 84% said that they believe small businesses are critical to maintaining and growing the UK economy. Many respondents also shared that they will try to use smaller companies, with 62% saying they will continue to support their local businesses even if inflation means they will need to reduce their spending. Furthermore, half of Brits, Americans and Canadians are planning to spend more at smaller businesses in 2022, the survey found.   More than six in 10 (63%) UK respondents reported that they would use their savings to fund their new company, with a further 31% saying they would seek extra funding once their business was established.   In addition to 42% of British workers overall wanting to start their own business, the research found that half of all respondents polled globally had the same plan, with one in 10 planning on carrying out their plan in 2022.   Viktoria Ruubel, director of Product Europe at Intuit Quickbooks UK, said: "It's refreshing to see that despite continued uncertainty from Covid-19, small businesses continue to be an increasingly important lifeline to our economy. It can often be hard to know where to begin for new entrepreneurs, yet this research found that businesses born out of this period of uncertainty have much of the knowledge they need already."

					Almost one in 10 UK motorists say they had to call 999 after hitting a pedestrian who was using their smartphone, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Almost one in 10 UK motorists say they had to call 999 after hitting a pedestrian on their smartphone: A recent survey by Fiat has revealed that nearly 10% of UK motorists admit to calling 999 after they hit a pedestrian who was on their mobile phone.   The study polled 2,000 British drivers and mobile phone users in an attempt to warn people of the dangers mobile phones can cause when the user does not remain vigilant. The survey also found that 16% of motorists had to swerve around pedestrians in the road.   When asked about how they react when a pedestrian walks into the road in front of them, 17% said they exchange angry words or swear at them. In addition, 14% stated they would use rude gestures to get their point across.   The poll also looked at differences in age groups, and which age group would be most likely to walk into the road without looking. It was uncovered that eight in 10 18 to 24 year-olds said they had looked at their smartphone while crossing the road; an increase of 47% when all age groups were observed.   Furthermore, 18 to 24-year-olds were also more likely to be involved in confrontations, found the survey, with 36% admitting using rude gestures, and a third revealing they would use angry words or swear towards either at motorists or smartphone users.   Fiat also looked at ways to prevent people getting into accidents involving pedestrians and motorists, finding that parking sensors not only make it easier for drivers to park, but also might make pedestrians more aware of the car.   When attempting to prevent an accident occurring, just under a quarter (24%) of motorists said they had to honk their horn to make pedestrians aware of them; while almost a quarter (23%) said they had to break heavily in order to avoid a collision.

					29% of teachers are 'completely comfortable' talking about LGBT+ topics in the classroom:
				</title>
				<description>
					 29% of teachers are 'completely comfortable' talking about LGBT+ topics in the classroom: A recent survey by Just Like Us has revealed that just under three in 10 (29%) school teachers feel 'completely comfortable' when discussing LGBT+ topics with their students, with just 3% reporting they felt 'completely uncomfortable' when asked the same question.   The survey polled over 6,000 primary and secondary school teachers from across the UK, asking them about their comfort levels when discussing LGTB+ topics with their students. It uncovered that just over half (52%) are 'mostly comfortable' in discussing the topics with their students.   On the other hand, 19% said they felt 'uncomfortable' with a further 14% stating they are 'not very comfortable' in response to the question.   The poll was conducted around 18 years after Section 28 was repealed ' an act brought in by Margaret Thatcher in 1988 stating that promotion of homosexuality by local authorities is prohibited.   With an aim to reduce the stigma surrounding the LGBT+ community, Ofsted require primary school lessons to include different types of families in their lessons (for example: families with same sex parents).   In addition, the Government has recently reinforced their guidance to regularly include LGBT+ topics in school and hopes that the push will help young people who are LGBT+ feel completely comfortable with their sexuality.   Dominic Arnall, chief executive of Just Like us, said: 'Today marks 18 years since Section 28 was repealed in England yet clearly things have not changed as much as we like to think and, as a result, growing up LGBT+ is still unacceptably tough. We don't blame teachers for feeling uncomfortable ' they may not have had the resources or personal life experiences ' but all you need is a willingness to support your pupils.'

					A third of Brits in Conservative constituencies across the North and Midlands believe Boris Johnson has done a 'good job' dealing with Covid-19
				</title>
				<description>
					 A third of Brits in Conservative constituencies across the North and the Midlands  believe Boris Johnson has done a 'good job' dealing with Covid-19: A recent survey by Deltapoll for The Mail on Sunday has uncovered that just over a third of voters in Conservative constituencies in the North and areas across the Midlands are of the opinion that Boris Johnson has done a good job in dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic.    The study polled voters in constituencies that were gained by the Conservatives in the North and Midlands and found that many people who voted for the Conservatives in the last election may change their votes before the next general election.  While the study showed a lack of support for the Prime Minister, more people feel Rishi Sunak has done a 'good job' during the pandemic (45%), than those who believe he's done a 'bad job' (40%).   Furthermore, just under a quarter (24%) of those polled said they do not believe Boris Johnson will be leader of the Conservative Party in 12 months' time, with just under three-quarters (74%) saying they don't trust the Prime Minister to tell the truth.   When asked who they thought would make a better Prime Minister, 38% of those surveyed said Kier Starmer, in comparison to just a third (33%) who said Boris Johnson. This might explain why four in 10 Brits believe Labour will win the next General Election, compared to 35% backing the Tories.   In light of rumours surrounding members of parliament breaking lockdown rules, the participants were asked whether the Prime Minister should resign if he broke the rules, with 65% saying he should resign if lockdown rules were not followed.   During the last General Election, the Conservatives won 57 seats in the North and Midlands; however nearly half (49%) believe that at the next election, Labour will win the seats back, with just a third believing the Conservatives will retain them.

					Almost eight in 10 UK adults want companies to do more to promote sustainable packaging, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Almost eight in 10 UK adults want companies to do more to promote sustainable packaging: A recent survey by the Chartered Institute of Marketing has revealed that 78% of Brits would like bigger companies to help promote and use sustainable packaging in their deliveries and in-store products.   The study polled 2,000 UK adults at the end of 2021, in an attempt to uncover the public's opinions about waste plastic packaging. Furthermore, more people want companies to promote sustainable packaging than in 2020; up from 66% to 78% in 2021.   When asked about which companies are the worst for waste packaging, 48% said Amazon products came with the most unnecessary packaging. Tesco was also cited, with 9% saying they should cut down on their packaging.   Both ASOS and John Lewis had just 5% of respondents saying they should reduce the amount of packaging they have around their products, with Marks and Spencer's, ASDA and Sainsbury's having just 6% saying they're the worst for packaging waste.   This could explain why over eight in 10 (82%) respondents think companies use too much plastic packaging when both delivering and selling in-store items.   Many participants think that consumers could do more to combat plastic waste, with a quarter of Brits saying they keep the packaging from purchases to wrap their own presents. This figure is up by 12% from 2020.   Gemma Butler, sustainable marketing expert and marketing director for the Chartered Institute of Marketing, said: 'Consumers are far more switched on when it comes to the challenges of excessive packaging, especially plastics, and today's findings show it's having an impact on brand association. Companies that therefore refuse to address their product packaging impacts risk damaging not only the planet, but their reputation too.'

					96% of engineering employers say a skills shortage amongst workers has negatively impacted their business, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 96% of engineering employers say a skills shortage amongst workers has negatively impacted their business: A survey by the Institution of Engineering and Technology has revealed that the skills shortage in the engineering industry has impacted nearly all firms; with half stating they are having difficulty recruiting. Furthermore, 47% said they were having difficulty in making recruitment times longer as a result of a skills shortage.   The poll studied engineering workers across the UK to understand the current challenges that employers and employees are facing.    When asked about the main priorities for their firms, two-thirds of employers said they were focussed on improving the profitability of their company, with 62% citing improving productivity as a main priority.    Many firms think that the Government need to do more to help the skills shortage, with 54% saying they need to be given more funding for apprenticeships. Furthermore, just over half (51%) said they would like extra money to train and re-skill in priority areas, with a further 49% stating they would use the funding to provide better careers advice in schools and colleges.   Energy and environmental sustainability is one of the key areas for improvement within the industry, found the research, with 35% saying the area needs growth. However, only half of those surveyed believe it is achievable for their firm to be net zero by 2050, with just 51% believing they have the required skills to tackle the issue.   Workplace diversity is also something that many firms are looking at improving, with a third of employers polled stating they are taking action to improve diversity across genders, and 30% actively improving diversity across ethnicities.

					FMCG retail increased by 8% in 2020, with lockdown allowing for 78% of markets to grow, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 FMCG retail increased by 8% in 2020, with lockdown allowing for 78% of markets to grow: A recent survey by The Grocer has revealed that Covid-19 lockdowns have had a beneficial impact on the FMCG industry, with almost eight in 10 markets seeing a growth and increase in sales.   The study looked into many aspects of the food and retail market and found that, between January and June 2021, Deliveroo made almost 149 million takeaway deliveries; double the regular amount.   When looking at the most popular food items, it was uncovered that energy drinks had the highest rise in sales seeing a £205.5 million rise between 2020 and 2021. Furthermore, chocolate and fish saw big sale rises by £147.7 million and £131 million, respectively.   The coffee industry also saw an increase in sales in 2021, with roast and ground coffee sales increasing by 44%. Companies in the coffee industry, therefore, also benefitted, with Starbucks seeing a 37% increase in money going into the company.   Chilled ready meals also saw an increase in popularity as more people returned to work and Covid-19 restrictions eased, where prior to this there had been a decrease in sales. In 2021 there was a sales rise of £80.4 million, in comparison to a decrease of £74 million in the years prior.   While more people spent money at supermarkets during the pandemic, once lockdown rules eased sales in supermarkets fell by 7%, found the analysis, with the average cost of each shop dropping by 19%.   The report also explained how analysts had investigated pre-pandemic trends, finding that half the grocery shopping taking place was online before the pandemic, than since the beginning. In 2021 it was revealed that just 12% of supermarket shopping in was carried out remotely.   When consumers were asked if they plan to shop online after the pandemic, nine in 10 of those who were already doing so, said they would continue to do so, with 13% of UK shoppers choosing to use quick commerce.

				<description>
					 More people have trust in their local council than in the Government to make decisions about their local area: A recent survey has revealed that more people would place their trust in their local council to make decisions about the area they live in, than in the Government; with over half (51%) saying they trust their local council.   Just 7% said they would trust the Government to make a good decision for their local area.   The study, on behalf on the Association for Public Service Excellence (APSE), polled over 1,500 adults in the UK, and was commissioned after a survey by the University of Kent and charity, Belong, observed the public's opinions on the Government over the Covid-19 pandemic.   When asked about services in their local area, 51% said they trust their local council to make decisions about services, with just 15% placing their trust in the Government.   The survey also found that trust in private companies to deliver their local services effectively (13%) was greater than trust in the Government (12%). However, almost half the participants polled (49%) said they would trust their local council.   In addition, the survey looked at participant opinions on the best way to limit climate change, with 37% believing their local council are best placed to implement measures to tackle the issue, while three in 10 believe it should be left to central Government.   Paul O'Brien, chief executive for APSE, said: 'Though the survey should bring some reassurance to the sector, it should also serve as a spur to action in convincing Government of the need to grant councils parity of esteem when delivering improvements at a community level.'

				<description>
					 One in 10 Northerners believe the Government's 'levelling up' plans will not make improvements locally before the next general election: A recent survey by the Northern Agenda has revealed that 10% of Northerners believe the Government's 'levelling up' plans will not make their local area better before the next general election scheduled for 2024. Furthermore, 18% of respondents said they don't expect any improvements to be made within the next 10 years.   The study polled over 1,000 people in the North of England, seeking their opinions on the Government's new policy. Over two-thirds (69%) of respondents stated the plans to improve their local area would never work. In addition, just 3% said they believe there would be improvements before the end of 2022.   When asked about what they would like to see improved, a third said they'd like better living standards. Furthermore, 18% said upgrading the transport systems would be the best improvements; such as trainlines, roads and all public transport.   In addition, 14% of those surveyed said they believe the biggest improvement would be to invest in training and life skills; while one in 10 said they believe local authorities should have more power.   The survey aimed to uncover participant opinions about the North as a whole, not just within their local area. It uncovered that 96% of Northerners feel it should be a main priority for the Government to reduce the difference in inequalities between the North and the South.   The participants were also asked about how much they trust the Conservatives and the Labour party, finding that just 16% trust the Conservatives more than Labour. On the other hand, 41% stated they trust the Labour party more than the Conservatives, leaving 43% to say they trust neither.

					94% of small and medium-sized businesses report planning permission delays as a major obstacle to housebuilding, according to poll
				</title>
				<description>
					 94% of small and medium-sized businesses report planning permission delays as a major obstacle to new housebuilding: A recent survey by the Home Builder's Federation, Close Brothers Property Finance and Travis Perkins has uncovered that 94% of small and medium-sized businesses cited delays in getting planning permission as a major problem in developing new homes.   The study polled construction firms at the end of 2021 to find out more about the industry and the challenges faced by firms of all sizes. The survey also elicited that the number of firms employing apprentices has increased by almost a third (33% in the 2020 survey to 60% in 2021).   When looking into the differences between the geographic locations in the UK, it was found that northern construction firms report the most apprenticeship programmes, with 88% saying they employ apprentice workers.   Furthermore, it was uncovered that most firms in the Midlands and in the South, also employ apprentices with 59% and 52% saying so respectively.   When asked about other factors that are stopping the Government's proposed 300,000 new homes each year, 59% said worker shortages and rising wages were an issue. The construction industry as a whole, highlighted a decrease of eastern European workers as a result of Brexit, bringing increases in wages.   In addition, the rising cost of materials such as bricks, timber and cement was cited as a concern by 78% of housebuilders, up from one in five in 2020.   It is estimated that, in the UK, around 800,000 people work in the homebuilding industry; either within the planning, design or building of the property.   Frank Pennal: chief executive of Close Brother's Property Finance, said: 'The combined challenge of both labour and material shortages, rising costs and planning delays are a serious risk to the delivery of new homes across the UK. Developing homes takes months and years and while some of these issues might only be short term, they risk leaving a lasting legacy on the provision of new homes.'

					29% of homeowners reveal they used private renters for their mortgage payments, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 29% of homeowners reveal they used private renters for their mortgage payments: A survey published in November 2021 by the Office for National Statistics has revealed that nearly three in 10 homeowners with a mortgage say they made repayments via a private renter, with just under a quarter (23%) reporting they used social renters.   The study is one of the longest running Government surveys (first published in 1967) and aims to outline patterns and key points of change in the way British people use a mortgage. For example, it was found that just 3% of people with a mortgage expect to fall behind on their bills, a decrease from the 4% which stated the same thing in November 2020.   When asked if they had ever been behind on their bills, one in 10 households admitted to being behind in April 2021; a slight decrease from the 12% who said the same in November 2020. Furthermore, 17% of private renters admitted to be behind on at least one household bill.   The number of households in arrears has gone up since the start of the pandemic, according to the poll, with 2% admitting to owing money at the time of the survey, compared to less than 1% before the pandemic. In addition, one in 10 households said they found it difficult to keep up with payments over the last year.   Of those who owed money or who were in arrears, four in 10 said they have struggled more over the last year than they had previously; with a further 46% stating they had difficulty between July and November 2020, during the early stages of the Covid-19 pandemic.

					Half of British households expect to find their energy from more sustainable sources in the next year, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Half of British households expect to find their energy from more sustainable sources: A recent survey by Energy Helpline has revealed that 50% of British households expect to find their energy from more sustainable sources within the next 12 months. A further 47% said they would prioritise using less energy in their home in order to combat inflating gas prices.   The study observed 1,000 British participants during October 2021 and uncovered that 51% felt the government did not give enough support during the energy crisis. However, 42% said they felt it was down to energy suppliers to provide support and that these companies were not doing enough.   As an alternative to spending more on sustainable energy sources, many people are seeking to insulate their home, however, for many people this is beyond the realms of affordability.  It is estimated that the cost to insulate a home is around £10,000. Two-fifths (41%) of respondents believe that the government should pay these costs, with a further 24% saying it should be the energy suppliers who pays for the upgrades.   When asked about their ability to pay their energy bills this winter, seven in 10 participants stated that they are worried they will be unable to. A further 27% fear they may have to cut down on the amount of energy they use in order to decrease their bill, with 19% saying they are worried that their physical health might suffer from not being able to heat up their home ' up to 24% among 19-24-year-olds.   The survey also revealed that four in 10 said that the energy crisis has led to them prioritising purchasing more energy-efficient products, with just under a quarter (24%) saying they would switch to a green supplier, and almost a fifth (18%) saying they would seek to source their own energy from home.   Mark Bennet, energy expert at Energy Helpline, said: "While it's clear that the energy crisis is causing millions of households to worry about paying their bills, increasingly we are looking for more sustainable solutions when it comes to cutting our bills."

					63% of manufacturing executives say their organisation's business model has changed, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 63% of manufacturing executives say their organisation's business model has changed: A recent survey by Econsultancy, with Coveo and Stiecore, has revealed that almost two thirds (63%) of executives of manufacturing companies say they have changed their business model in light of the Covid-19 pandemic.   The study polled 467 manufacturing executives from the UK and mainland Europe and found that many had allowed their IT and tech teams to take a bigger role within the company. Furthermore, the use of websites and digital portals by manufacturing agencies has risen by 38% in the last year.   Another common change that manufacturing organisations have experienced is going from offering products to providing services, reported by 65% as a long-term plan for the company. In addition, many firms started selling directly to customers; however, only 45% said it was for the longer-term.   When asked about whether the IT change will be a more permanent feature of the organisation, 65% it would be a long-term change, leaving 35% admitting it is just in the short-term. Furthermore, 39% of participants said that implementing new technology platforms would allow their customers to have a better digital experience.    Manufacturing executives will have to decide which technology will have the biggest impact on the company, with 35% saying they would like a system that would allow the customer to personalise their searches.   Furthermore, 34% said they would like to use the internet to offer new services or products to customers, with a quarter also saying they would like more advanced analytics so they can evaluate any interaction.   The survey also uncovered that half the executives polled were not confident they can make and promote the product in the best way. Two-fifths (41%) said it is because the data is too complex and is from too many data sources, with 37% blaming unreliable data sets.

				<description>
					 Over half of manufacturing firms have used 3D printing for more than five years: A recent survey by PostProcess have uncovered that 51% of manufacturing firms say they have used 3D printing for at least the last five years, up from 45% in 2020.   The study has been running since 2019, and polled the users of post-processing systems in an attempt to outline the future for the post-printing and 3D printing industry. The survey found that the number of firms that said they would use 3D printing for prototyping over the next five years had decreased from 57% in 2019, to 44% in 2021.   When asked about what would make them invest more into 3D printing, over three-quarters (76%) said 'improving end part quality', with a further 38% saying 'reducing the company's dependency on labour'.    In addition, many manufacturing firms stated the importance of health and safety, with 36% saying they would invest more into the 3D printing industry if it made work safer for their employees. However, 8% said they currently have no plans to invest into the 3D printing industry.   The survey also looked at the impact that the Covid-19 pandemic has had on the 3D printing industry, with just under a third (32%) saying they want to use 3D printing more as a result; with the majority of them being based in Europe.   The research highlights that the number of manufacturing firms using more than one production method has dropped to just half, down from seven in 10 in 2020.    Furthermore, when asked about what they use the production technologies for, 52% said they used 3D printing for prototyping in 2021; a decrease from 65% in 2019.

				<description>
					 86% of people would trust museum curators to tell them the truth: A recent survey has revealed that 86% of Brits would trust museum curators to tell them the truth, in comparison to just 63% saying they trust the police.   The study by by Ipsos MORI polled over 2,000 British adults between October and November 2021, with the aim of finding out which profession is viewed as being the most trustworthy. The survey uncovered that 94% of Brits would trust nurses to tell them the truth, making them the most trustworthy.   On the other hand, only 16% said they would trust advertising executives, with just slightly more who would put their trust in government ministers (19%).    Just under a quarter (24%) of men said they would trust politicians, with 15% of women saying the same.   When asked about their opinions of lawyers, 63% of women said they would trust them to tell the truth, slightly more than men (50%). In addition, women were also more trusting in trade union officials than men (48% vs 40%).   The study also looked into the varying opinions of people with and without university degrees, and found that half of those surveyed without a qualification would trust bankers to give good advice compared to 35% of those with a degree.   More participants with degrees (72%), however, said they would trust civil servants to tell the truth compared to those without a qualification (40%), with 57% rusting the profession overall.

				</title>
				<description>
					 55% of British women report concerns about personal finance, work stress and mental health because of the pandemic: A recent survey by YouGov has revealed that more women (55%) reported concerns about their mental health, personal finance and work stress than men (36%).    The study polled participants from 27 different countries for the Cambridge Globalism Project in order to find out how the pandemic has impacted different people from various cultures.    When looking at how the pandemic had affected different age groups, the analysis showed half of 18-24-year-olds, in the UK, said it had affected their mental health; compared to a quarter of those aged 55 and over. In comparision, almost six in 10 young people in Italy reported that their mental health had been negatively affected, compared to 39% of older generations.   It was also found that Britain had one of the highest levels of optimism for the future (42%) with only Australia (45%), the United States (43%) and Canada (44%) highlighted as more optimistic nations.   The survey uncovered that people from Northern Europe were less likely to say the pandemic had affected their personal finances. Furthermore, 22% of British citizens admitted their finances had been affected by the pandemic, with just Sweden reporting a lower percentage (15%). Many southern hemisphere nations, such as Brazil (54%), Kenya (75%) and South Africa (59%), recorded higher figures.   When asked about whether they had moved to a new part of the country during the pandemic, just 4% of Brits said they had; the lowest percentage out of all the nations surveyed, alongside Denmark. Brazil and Saudi Arabia (22%) were found to be the countries with most population movement, just ahead of South Africa (21%).

					Double the amount of female English football fans have experienced unwanted physical attention at a match since 2014 reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Double the amount of female English football fans have experience unwanted physical attention at a match since 2014: A recent survey by the Football Supporters' Association (FSA) has revealed that one in five women have experienced unwanted physical attention at men's football matches, double the amount reported during the corresponding 2014 survey.   The study polled 2,000 football supporters, with the aim of exposing and preventing sexism at football matches in the UK. The survey also uncovered that three-quarters of those at women's football matches have never experienced sexist chants or unwanted physical attention.   When asked about the type of sexism they had experienced at football matches, 44% said they had been told they 'know a lot for a girl', with a further 34% stating they had 'heard sexist comments'. In addition, a quarter said they had heard sexist chants and that women 'only go to the games because they fancy the players'.   The participants were also asked how it makes them feel when they experience sexism at a game, with almost half saying they feel angry. Furthermore, 38% say they feel embarrassed for the person who said it; 24% found it upsetting and one in 20 said it makes them not want to go again.   However, 15% said the sexism they hear at football matches doesn't bother them, with a further 12% saying they just laugh it off; half of the figure from 2014 who said the same.   The study also looked at ways of possibly preventing sexism at football matches, with almost six in 10 saying they believe clubs should condemn those who exhibit sexist behaviour. In addition, 39% said they would like to see sexist individuals ejected from the stadium.   Ally Simcock, Port Vale and FSA board member, said: 'I've been going to men's football for a long time now and have heard my share of sexist comments, but a lot has changed recently. Things like the #MeToo movement have helped change people's perceptions about what they're willing to put up with, and what is or isn't acceptable.'

					Eight in 10 journalists experience threats, abuse or violence whilst working in the UK, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 Eight in 10 journalists experience threats, abuse or violence whilst working in the UK: A recent survey by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, along with the Home Office, has revealed that 80% of journalists working in the UK have been exposed to threats, violence or abuse while at work. This is responsible for making over a third of female journalists not feel safe whilst working.   The study polled 360 male and female journalists in the UK between June and July 2021, as part of the government's plan to protect journalists. A fifth (20%) of respondents said they do not report: abuse, intimidation, threats, violence, bullying, sexism, racism or homophobia because they believe it comes as part of their job.   When asked about how they receive abuse, just under a third said they had experienced it online, with 34% saying most of the abuse or threats had happened in person. Furthermore, just over a third said they had received abuse both online and offline.   In addition, of the 360 journalists observed, almost three-quarters stated they had experienced threats or abuse via social media.   The study also uncovered differences between genders and ethnicities, with men being more likely to experience violence or abuse. On the other hand, women were more likely to experience bullying, with half of female respondents saying they had experienced sexism because of their work.   Non-white journalists are more likely to report being affected by the abuse they receive, found the study, with one in five stating it had had an extreme affected on them; compared to one in 10 white respondents. Furthermore, double the number of journalists from an ethnic minority background reported that the incidents had extremely affected them individually.   Owen Meredith, News Media Association chief executive, said: "No-one should have to go to work fearing that they will be abused, assaulted or worse. Journalists are no different."

					45-54-year-olds are more likely to never trust Black Friday deals, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 45-54-year-olds are more likely to never trust Black Friday deals: A has revealed that 44% of 45-54-year-olds never trust deals on Black Friday, making the age group the most sceptical in the UK.   The survey by YouGov also found that 18-24-year-olds are most likely to believe Black Friday deals are good value, with just 15% saying they doubt they are getting as good a deal as they are being offered.   The study polled over 2,000 people in the UK in an attempt to uncover the validity of Black Friday deals.  Nearly two-fifths (37%) of those surveyed stated they would never trust Black Friday deals.   For the research, a deal was deemed to be false if it is increased by 10% or more, then decreased by 5% or more during the sale. The study found that just under 13% of products increased in price by an average of 20% in preparation for Black Friday.   The poll also aimed to find out which categories often have the best Black Friday deals, with over 20% of soundbar and home cinema systems being included in the deals. The next most popular categories to be included in Black Friday deals were speakers and toys with 19% each.   Nike was found to have one of the best Black Friday discounts in 2020, with its 'tech fleece full zip hoodie' and 'tech fleece shorts', both having 58% off; the highest discount on a product in that year. Furthermore, BT, JBL and Amazon all had products named in the top 10 for discounts in 2020.   Christine Gouldthorp, consumer expert at PriceRunner, said: 'I am really disappointed to see so many retailers still resorting to this horrible sales tactic. Retailers are already increasing their prices ahead of Black Friday and I expect them to keep doing so for a few more weeks.'

					Two-thirds of Brits, who took early retirement, report increased happiness since making the decision to leave employment, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Two-thirds of Brits, who took an early retirement, report increased happiness since their decision to leave employment: A survey by Aviva has revealed that just over 66% of early retirees say they feel  happier since leaving their job. Furthermore, one in five said they feel the age of 55 is the right age to retire as they can gain access to their pension savings.   Furthermore, half of those surveyed stated an improvement to their physical wellbeing as a result of retiring, with 57% saying the same about their mental wellbeing.   The study polled 2,000 British adults to find patterns in when and why people choose to retire. The survey also found that just over a quarter (26%) made the decision to retire when they felt financially stable enough to do so.   Furthermore, 22% of respondents said they felt retirement helped them become more financially stable, with a further 33% stating that having a defined benefit pension enabled them to retire when they did.   On the other hand, 47% saw a decrease to their finances as a result of taking an early retirement, with half of women stating they took a financial hit when they retired. In contrast, just 44% of men reported a decrease in wealth after retirement.   Currently, the UK state pension age is 66, however many people said they are comfortable to retire before then. It is also estimated that the state pension age will go up to 67 before the year 2030, and could be as high as 69 by the middle of the century.   Alistair McQueen, head of savings and retirement at Aviva, said: 'It's important to learn from the lesson that, while happiness soars in retirement, many people find their finances take the strain when they retire early. If you aspire to retire early, it's vital you plan your finances to be sustainable for the long-term.'

					66% of British public recognise that trains are a greener form of transport than cars, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 66% of British public recognise that trains are a greener form of transport than cars: A recent survey by Network Rail has revealed that two-thirds of British adults understand that trains are a better form of transport, than cars, for the environment. However, it was also uncovered that 73% use cars as their main mode of transport.   The study polled over 2,000 British adults ahead of the UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow earlier this year, and found that cars are more commonly used by UK citizens than trains; despite trains being more environmentally friendly.   It has been proven that the carbon emissions emitted from a train are less harmful to the environment than the emissions from a car. Furthermore, the cost to maintain and run a car is increasing with fuel costs rising considerably.   The number of people who said they had used public transport, and specifically the railways has fallen significantly since the start of 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. According to the research, total passenger numbers were at around 65% of what they were pre-pandemic. However, passenger numbers had increased by 19% in the months prior to the conference, according to the research, with incentives such as flexible season tickets attracting people back to rail travel.   When asked about if their habits could change, two thirds of participants said they would consider using trains instead of their cars for days out with friends or family. Furthermore, 55% would consider using the train in order to travel to music and sport events.   Tim Shoveller, managing director for Network Rail's North West and Central region, said: 'Rail is the greenest form of public transport there is. We want to encourage as many people as possible to make the shift from car to train more regularly, particularly for long-distance travel ' not just for the planet, but for reliability, comfort and safety.'

					 43% of Britons would be highly interested in embedded property insurance: A survey has found that 43% of banking customers would by highly interested in bank-embedded offers in the property sector, with a further 28% stating their support for the embedded offers in travel insurance.   The survey was commissioned by Momentive.ai to understand the opinions of bank and online banking customers on proposed embedded insurance offers. More than 500 bank customers in the UK were polled, uncovering an increasing amount of support for bank-embedded insurance offers in the automobile sector (26%), with 43% also stating they would be interested in embedded offers for high-value personal and household items.   When asked about whether they would be interested in bank-embedded offers based off their transaction data, 71% stated they would support the idea. Furthermore, 64% of traditional bank customers would also be interested in embedded offers in relation to their transactions. When questioned about the reason for their decision, 49% stated convenience as the main motive.   Three quarters of customers who use mobile wallets would be highly interested in receiving insurance offers from their banks. In addition, 89% of both 'buy now pay later' loan users and small business owners would also like to receive insurance offers; with 79% of people who chose to use investing apps or accounts feeling the same.   The study also found that eight in 10 of those who chose a traditional insurer or broker in the last year would prefer it if they were offered bank-embedded offers next time.   A similar study was conducted in America of over 3,500 participants, which found a correlation between certain life events (such as the birth of a child and the purchase of property or car) and the opinions participants had about bank-embedded insurance offers; the amount of people in support of receiving these offers would increase when drastic changes occur in their lives.

				<description>
					 41% of UK citizens satisfied with the Government's handling of the coronavirus pandemic: A recent survey by YouGov has revealed that over four in 10 Brits believe the Government has handled the pandemic well, an increase from 39% during the corresponding 2020 survey.   The study polled over 26,000 people in 26 different countries and uncovered that Australia's public satisfaction with its government's handling of the pandemic decreased by 27% between 2020 and 2021. Furthermore, Greece showed the biggest decrease in public satisfaction; going from 72% in 2020 to just 42% in 2021.   When asked about vaccine passports, 64% of Brits said they would welcome passports at large public events, such as football matches or concerts. Furthermore, over four in 10 (41%) British citizens said they would support the use of vaccine passports in restaurants. Eight in 10 countries are in majority favour of vaccine passes.   In both Germany and the UK, there was a 41% majority in favour of vaccine passes on public transport, with Denmark, Hungary and Poland the only countries without a majority.   The research found that people believed their government was prioritising limiting the spread of coronavirus, with a third of Polish and Indonesian citizens wanting more freedom to allow ordinary life to happen. Furthermore, a quarter of Britons said the Government's response was too restrictive on personal freedoms, an increase from 13% in 2020.   In comparison, the number of Spanish nationals thinking their freedom has been sacrificed unjustly was the same in 2020 at 34%, with Brazil seeing a decrease from 39% to 36% in 2021.   In 2020, around 21% of Germans said their ordinary life was taken away in order to slow down coronavirus infections, which increased to 34% in 2021. Every nation observed in the survey showed an increase in the number of people who believe the priority was on stopping infections.

				<description>
					 Four in 10 UK adults say they are not saving enough money for a comfortable retirement: A recent survey by Wealth at Work has uncovered that 41% of UK adults are aware that the money being put into their pension, is not enough for them to be able to enjoy a comfortable retirement.   The study polled over 1,000 British working adults and found that 63% believe their financial knowledge is either 'excellent' or 'above average'. Furthermore, a quarter said their financial ability was 'excellent', with a further 38% claiming it to be 'above average'.   A third of participants said their financial ability was 'average' with just one in 20 admitting their knowledge is 'below average'.   When asked about the money being put into their pension, 16% said they didn't know if they are permitted to put extra money into their workplace pension. Furthermore, 12% are unsure how much they are putting into their pension, with 14% saying they do not know how much their employer contributes.   The survey also looked into whether people know how they are going to spend their retirement money and uncovered that 11% will have to withdraw from their pension as soon as they retire.   Furthermore, 7% said they will take out the same amount of money each month when they retire, with just one in 20 saying they will take out all their pension in one go.    Many of the participants were aware that they might not receive their pension, with one in 10 saying if their employer goes bust, they will lose their money. In addition, 7% said they will lose all of their money if they die before they reach retirement.   Jonathan Watts-Lay, director for Wealth at Work, said: 'Many companies are now seeing the benefit of sourcing specialist financial wellbeing provides to help employees improve their financial future, covering everything from debt and money management through to optimising employer sponsored benefits and retirement.'

					Six in 10 office workers say they are left to make their workplace eco-friendlier, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 Six in 10 office workers say they are left to make their workplace 'eco-friendlier': A recent survey by Essity, a health and hygiene company, has revealed that 60% of employees feel their employers leave them to implement measures to make their workplace more 'eco-friendy'. Furthermore, a third of respondents believe that Covid-19 lockdowns provided an ideal opportunity to apply more measures, but were missed by employers.   The study polled 2,000 British office workers in an attempt to highlight eco problems in offices across the UK. The study found that 45% of those surveyed said their workplace was 'shamefully' eco-unfriendly.   When asked about what they would like to happen to improve their office, 36% said they would welcome desk plants to improve the air quality, while 35% said they would rather use more recycled products.   As well as focusing on office working, the study polled the participants about how eco-friendly they were whilst working from home. The survey uncovered that 42% said they had become more eco conscious, with 46% maintaining their efforts when returning to the office.   Furthermore, the change made almost four in 10 participants notice how eco-unfriendly their workplace is; with 38% unsure whether their boss actually knows what measures to implement.   In addition, four in 10 said their boss appears to 'not care at all' about how eco-friendly their office is. On the other hand, 48% said their employer probably does not implement more measures due to cost.   Of the 2,000 people surveyed, six in 10 believe their colleagues would react positively to more eco-friendly practices, with one in five saying they would consider leaving their job due to a lack of green measuers in place.   A spokesman from Essity said: 'Working from home has led to people giving more thought to their own actions towards the future of the planet, and it seems many had assumed their employers would give the same attention to the workplace."

					Over two in five accountants state they 'never' or 'rarely' have optimism for the future, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Over two in five accountants state they 'never' or 'rarely' have optimism for the future: A recent survey by ACA students from the accountant wellbeing charity CABA has found that 21% of UK accountants are 'never' or 'rarely' optimistic about the future of their career. However, a quarter of those polled said they didn't feel able to speak about their stresses or worries.   The poll questioned over 1,000 UK accountants in June and July 2021 in preparation for National Stress Awareness Day at the start of November. The survey aimed to uncover how accountants really feel and attempted to give advice for the most common challenges that were revealed.   When asked about how their mental health may have affected their work, just over four in 10 said they felt as if they were unable to work effectively because of low energy. Furthermore, three in 10 stated they felt isolated when trying to deal with their challenges.   In addition, over 56% said they felt challenged emotionally in the year leading up to the study taking place.    The study also aimed to uncover why the accountants might have been feeling the way they did, with a third saying their career, work or studies are the reason for feeling more stressed. Furthermore, 18% stated the impact of the pandemic on their work and life as a key factor, with 14% saying they constantly felt under pressure.   Paul Day, support officer for CABA, said: 'Some individuals may be put off from seeking help due to the perception of stigma, time barriers or simply not knowing where to look or how to find help. Whatever it is you're struggling with, though, it's vital you get some kind of support.'

					Just Co-op and Morrisons have stopped supplying plastic bags at tills, finds survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Just Co-op and Morrisons have stopped supplying plastic bags at tills: A survey asking supermarkets about the measures they have adopted, or plan to adopt to help climate change, have found that while single-use plastic bags are largely no longer in use, only the Co-op and Morrison's have stopped supplying plastic bags at tills, or plan to do so imminently.   The 'Time to Shelve' research surveyed nine of the leading supermarkets in the asking the questions that Metro readers wanted to know in relation to fighting climate change. The study also found that 87% of UK consumers regularly shop at these nine supermarkets: Sainsbury's, Tesco, ASDA, Co-op, Morrisons, ALDI, LIDL, Waitrose and Marks and Spencer's.   When asked about their opinions on having glass milk bottles instead of plastic ones, only Sainsbury's and Morrisons said they are currently changing away from plastic packaging. However, all other supermarkets gave an acceptable reason as to why glass bottles would not work in their stores.   Plastic waste is one of the most important issues facing the planet today, so many of the questions in the questionnaire were based around reducing plastic waste. Many people wanted to know if the major supermarkets would consider shrink wrapping their multipack items, with none of the nine stores saying they are currently doing so. On the other hand, only ASDA and ALDI said they have no plans to shrink wrap their multipacks.   Many questions were also based around reducing the amount of energy used in a store; with all of the supermarkets having turned down, or committed to turning down the aircon in their store. Furthermore, none of the supermarket chains said they were against the idea of reducing the number of open refrigerators in favour of closed ones.   10 things Metro readers asked supermarkets to do:    Replace plastic bags at till with paper ones   Remove all plastic packaging on fresh fruit and veg   Swap plastic milk bottles for glass   Stop selling multipacks in plastic shrink-wrap   Only use energy efficient light bulbs   Reduce usage outside of shop hours   Swap open refrigeration units for closed ones   Turn down the aircon   More options to buy food individually rather than multipacks   Reduce food waste

				<description>
					 Approximately 45 million UK adults report receiving a suspicious message to their landline or mobile: A recent survey by Ofcom has revealed that 82% of British adults have received a suspicious message via their mobile phone or landline, equating to approximately 45 million in the UK.    The study polled 2,000 UK adults in September of 2021 and aimed to uncover the experiences of a range of people who have received suspicious messages. The survey found that 2% admitted to following the instructions on a message or call within the last few months, equalling almost one million people in the UK.   The poll also looked into the difference in ages and whether certain age groups receive more suspicious messages or calls. Three in five (61%) people aged 75 and over reported receiving a potential scam call to their landline, with 51% of those stating it happened at least once a week.   In addition, 71% of those surveyed said they'd received a suspicious text, rising to three-quarters (75%) among 16'34-year-olds. Of the 71% who said they'd received a suspicious text   When asked about their familiarity with how to report a suspicious message, 79% of mobile phone users stated they were unaware of the 7726 number used to report such messages. However, 81% agreed that reporting messages is helpful in preventing further scam messages.   Of those who reported receiving a suspicious message to their mobile, 53% stated they had deleted the message, with a further 52% saying they blocked the number after the text. Furthermore, 49% of those who received a suspicious call blocked the number, with 44% of participants who received a suspicious recorded message ended up doing the same thing.

					Women are 60% more likely to falsely acquire prescription drugs from their GP than men, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Women are 60% more likely to falsely acquire prescription drugs from their GP than men: A recent survey by Delamere, a private rehab clinic, has found that women are almost two thirds as likely to wrongly obtain prescription drugs off their doctor than men, with men being twice as likely as women to go on the dark web to obtain drugs.   The study asked over 2,000 Brits about their substance use and estimated that 3.2 million people had used drugs in the UK over the last year. Furthermore, it is predicted that just over 2% of the population are regular drug users.   When asked about how they felt drugs affected them, nearly a third (32%) of men stated they are worried about how substance abuse is affecting their body. On the other hand, just less than a quarter (24%) of women expressed the same concern; leading to men being 52% more likely to seek help than women.   The survey also looked into drug use during the pandemic, with men being 38% more likely to use drugs during lockdown than women. In addition, 59% of men admitted to using illegal drugs in the last year, while just over half (52%) of women stated the same.    Although significantly more men take drugs than women, according to the poll, it was found that a similar number of men and women drink alcohol; with 50% of men and 49% of women saying they had consumed alcohol over the past 12 months. It was also found that cannabis is nearly as common as paracetamol in the UK.   Mike Delaney, nurse, physiotherapist and clinical director for Delamere, said: 'When people are forced to be together day in, day out without respite, chemicals such as cocaine can improve mood, make conversation and connection easier and simply make life seem a little less bleak.'

					Electronics manufacturers are struggling to hire enough workers, with 80% expecting the situation to continue, finds survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Electronics manufacturers are struggling to hire enough workers, with 80% expecting the situation to continue: A survey of electronics manufacturers has revealed insight into the current state of the sector, with 80% of respondents saying the challenge of finding qualified workers is not likely to ease.    In response to this, nearly half those polled said they have taken to upskilling their workforce (46%) as well as increasing wages (44%) in a bid to attract and keep workers.    The survey by IPC, which polled hundreds of electronics manufacturers around the globe, also found that a global shortage of products and components is causing problems with production delays, increased materials costs and optimism within the industry.    Nearly nine out of 10 respondents (88%) reported experiencing increased lead times, with nearly a third (31%) seeing delays to products of eight weeks or more.  Asked when they expect the shortages to end, over half (58%) believe it will be the second half of 2022 at the earliest,  according to the research.   Six in 10 companies polled also reported that backlogs are increasing as global inventories are declining, with a quarter believing they will continue to deplete. Just under half expect inventories to stay flat.   The research also found that 90% of those polled said that they have paid higher prices to their supppliers due to shortages.   Shawn DuBravac, IPC chief economist and lead researcher on the study, said: 'Supply shortages and other dislocations are impacting the global electronics supply chain and every downstream industry these manufacturers serve. Strong demand is helping industry sales, but shortages are delaying shipments and increasing backlogs. Manufacturers are facing higher prices as they compete for limited supply. This is a global phenomenon that is going to take well into next year to resolve."

					Nearly two-thirds of Brits believe that lenders don't consider whether an applicant has had help from the furlough scheme, according to survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Nearly two-thirds of Brits believe that lenders don't consider whether an applicant has had help from the furlough scheme: A recent survey has found that 64% of Britons believe that lenders will not consider the help that people have been given from the furlough scheme during the pandemic when it comes to their suitability for a mortgage.   Furthermore, 42% of those surveyed believe that being self-employed is not typically something that is considered by lenders when applying for a mortgage.   The study of 2,000 British adults was commissioned by NerdWallet in response to reports that some large high street banks have refused mortgage applications to people if they were self-employed or had received help from the government during the Covid-19 crisis.   In addition, two thirds of 18-34-year-olds were of the opinion that mortgage lenders would not consider whether their applicant had benefited from the furlough scheme, with men being 9% more likely to think this than women.   When asked about whether they felt they could secure a decent mortgage, over three-quarters said they felt they lacked the knowledge to make an informed decision. Furthermore, eight in 10 stated they would lack confidence in identifying poor advice given to help them, with 31% saying they would not trust what they read online regarding mortgage advice.   The survey also found that only 22% of 18-54-year-olds, including just 15% of 18-25-year-olds, knew about a government-backed mortgage guarantee scheme, which could apply to them. A further 78% of working age adults stated that they did not know of any help that could aid them when buying a property.   Richard Eagling, senior mortgage expert at NerdWallet, said: "Many people have underestimated the impact of being furloughed or accessing self-employed Covid grants on their ability to get a mortgage. A lender will always determine the risk level that a mortgage applicant presents and whether they can afford the repayments, and it seems that many lenders are excluding furloughed income when assessing affordability.'

					56% of global chief executives admit their supply chain has been under increased stress since the start of the pandemic, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 56% of global chief executives admit their supply chain has been under increased stress since the start of the pandemic: A survey has found that over half of chief executives globally (and 59% of bosses in the UK) have said their supply chain is struggling due to the coronavirus pandemic; making it one of the biggest risks to growth worldwide.   The survey by KPMG of around 1,300 chief executives globally, including 150 British bosses found that supply chain pressure is one of the biggest challenges facing businesses; alongside cyber security and climate issues. Furthermore, 35% of UK bosses have stated their plans to invest over 10% of their revenue towards environmental sustainability measures.   Many people are of the opinion that the issues surrounding supply chains were caused because of a lack of lorry drivers, Brexit and the pandemic.    In order to combat the impact of supply chain crisis, just under one in five (19%) of bosses globally have stated their plans to onshore more of their supply chains. Furthermore, 16% of UK bosses said they are aiming to increase British supply over the next three years.   The study also revealed 37% of companies are putting in place a hybrid working model, meaning staff will work remotely two or three days a week; with just over half (51%) investing in a shared office space ' up from 14% in February 2021.   Nearly a third (30%) of chief executives globally said they will diversify their sources of input by adding new locations, in order to make their supply chains stronger. Furthermore, 87% stated they felt they were ready to make an investment over the next three years.   Jon Holt, chief executive of KPMG in the UK, said: "It's encouraging to see CEOs thinking about growth and investment for the future with renewed confidence and optimism. CEOs have had to pivot their business strategies to face into many uncertainties brought by the pandemic, and now they are looking to move their plans from resilience to expansion.'

				<description>
					 Nearly half (47%) of Brits disapprove of Boris Johnson's overall job performance: A recent survey has revealed that nearly half of British citizens do not believe Boris Johnson has done a satisfactory job since he became Prime Minister; on the other hand, 32% approve of the work he has done, leaving 21% undecided.

Furthermore, just 35% are of the opinion that Boris Johnson is a strong leader, with 18% unable to agree or disagree.   When asked whether they thought Boris Johnson was consistent in his decision making, less than one in four respondents thought he was, with 56% of the view that the Prime Minister's decision making was irregular.   The survey also showed the disparity between male and female views on Boris Johnson's traits; with men showing more trust in the Prime Minister in terms of keeping his promises and consistency in decision making. One in four men believe Boris Johnson keeps his promises, compared to 22% of women.   Similarly, the study also shows difference in opinions between ages ' 34% of those aged between 25 and 34 believe Boris Johnson cares about people like them, while just 19% of 45-55-year-olds share the same view.   Furthermore, 58% of 55-64-year-olds either disagree or strongly disagree that Boris Johnson is organised while just 19% of both the 45-54 and 65+ age groups would agree with the statement.

					Business confidence has increased to 36%; highest figure since 2017, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Business confidence has increased to 36%; highest figure since 2017: A recent survey by Lloyds Bank of 1,200 businesses at the start of August has found that business confidence, in the UK, has risen by 6% to 36% - the highest recorded figure since April 2017. Likewise, economic optimism rose by 6%, as well, to 38%.   When asked about wages, a third of businesses stated they expect a pay rise of at least 2%, with nearly half of companies expecting to charge higher prices in the coming months. Furthermore, 17% of employees are anticipating a wage increase of at least 3%. The increase, of 12% from when the question was last asked, is the highest since it was first asked in 2018.   The study also found a disparity in business confidence between different locations of the UK, with the North East showing the most confidence in their business (46%) - an increase of 6% since the previous survey. Just behind the North East, London was also found to have a lot of business confidence, with 41% of businesses in the capital stating their trust in their company ' a rise of 4%.   On the other hand, three regions in the UK had a decrease in confidence since the last survey: the West Midlands dopped to 27%, Yorkshire and the Humber decreased to 26% with just 28% of the East Midlands stating their confidence.   Gareth Oakley, managing director for Business Banking at Lloyds Bank, said: 'With further boosts to confidence in the services, manufacturing and construction sectors we can be hopeful that demand across all sectors will drive consumption throughout the rest of the year.'

					54% of parents give children their first mobile phone whilst they're still at primary school, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 54% of parents give children their first mobile phone whilst still at primary school: A recent survey by Tesco Mobile has revealed that over half of parents will give their children their first phone before they start high school. Furthermore, six in 10 adults are of the opinion that a mobile phone is an essential item for school, both to aid learning and for the child's safety.   More than a third of parents polled (37%) stated that owning a mobile phone is a good exercise of responsibility for their child, as it gives them more choice and something to look after. Another reason that is given as a positive for kids having phones in school, is they can help promote a healthy social life as they interact with their friends when they're not with them.   When asked about why they felt it was important to give their child a mobile phone before the age of 11, 69% said they felt their child was safer when they had a phone on them. In addition, a further 47% stated the child's ability to keep in touch with friends and family as a major point in having a phone in primary school.   The most important feature of a mobile phone for kids, according to half of parents, is the minutes and texts; meaning 37% decided on affordable plans for their children. However, 34% of participants stated they had opted for mobile data on their kids' contract.   The study also aimed to uncover the biggest challenges that parents face when the new school term starts, with over half (53%) of parents stating the cost of school clothes and equipment the most stressful. Furthermore, 47% of parents admit to struggling to remember all the items they have to buy for the new school term, with a further 28% saying they struggle to make enough time to get organised.

					Over nine in 10 female doctors experienced some kind of sexism in the workplace, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Over nine in 10 female doctors have experienced some kind of sexism in the workplace: A recent survey by the British Medical Association (BMA) has revealed that nine out of 10 female doctors say they have experienced sexism in some form in the workplace.   The survey of nearly 2,500 respondents (82% of which were women and 16% male), also found that GP partners, salaried GPs and consultants the most likely to be treated differently because of their gender; with just 18% of salaried GPs having not experienced sexism while at work.   Furthermore, it was found that doctors with more caring responsibilities and those working part time are more at risk of experiencing sexism while at work; with many saying they don't feel there is enough cultural or structural support for doctors who have children.   When asked more in-depth questions about the sexism that they had endured while working, 31% of female doctors stated they had experience unwanted physical contact; with just 23% of male doctors having been in the same situation. Furthermore, females working in the medical profession have expressed they don't feel they get as much support or encouragement as men working the same job.   The study also revealed the impact that sexism is having on doctors and the profession as a whole, with two thirds of females saying it has negatively impacted their life and work; In contrast 45% of men expressed how they believe sexism has affected them positively.    One of the biggest differences between men and women, in terms of sexism in the medical profession, is the number that say their clinical ability has been called into question because of their gender. Seven in 10 females say their ability to perform their job has been scrutinised due to their gender, compared to just 4% of men who feel the same, according to the research.

					83% of businesses did not know about an upcoming plastics tax expected to be introduced in 2022, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 83% of businesses did not know about an upcoming plastics tax expected to be introduced in 2022: A recent survey by Veolia aimed to uncover businesses' opinion on the future plastics tax, instead found that over eight in 10 of those surveyed, didn't know there was one.  The tax is being brought in to reduce plastic waste and will charge companies £200 per tonne if the plastic doesn't include at least 30% recycled plastic.   To help the environment, many people have been involved in climate groups which has resulted in an increase in concern about the amount of waste and pollution that is being produced. The study found that public conscience (48%) was a major driving factor in implementing this tax, alongside the Government mandate (30%).   The Government's mandate is to increase the amount of plastic being recycled in order to decrease carbon emissions. Furthermore, it was found that if all plastic was recycled, global emissions would decrease by 61%. This, alone, means that between 30 and 150 million tonnes of carbon would be saved from entering the Earth's atmosphere each year ' according to the Imperial College London.   When informed about the future plastic tax, 84% of businesses polled agreed to support the tax on plastic packaging. They felt that, not only will it decrease the amount of carbon in the atmosphere, it will help create jobs for people and would encourage more domestic infrastructure.   Tim Duret, director of sustainable technology for Veolia UK and Ireland, said: "The Plastics Packaging Tax is removing the economic burden of acting more sustainably and levelling the playing field for businesses. In order to continue this momentum, we need to escalate the tax and roll it out across all types of plastics like construction, cars, furniture and electric goods."

					Four in 10 Brits are concerned about the amount of plastic packaging in their food and drink items, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Four in 10 Brits are concerned about the amount of plastic packaging in their food and drink items: A survey has revealed that four in 10 UK shoppers have concerns regarding the level of plastic surrounding their food and drink items.    Furthermore, 51% of 55-64-year-olds have expressed their concern about the impact that plastic is having on the environment and themselves; making the age group the most outspoken about plastic pollution.   The study, by Harris Interactive, polled 1,000 UK shoppers and highlighted the biggest issues in reducing the number of single-use plastics. A quarter stated they don't believe the alternatives are as good, with a further 46% saying they don't believe there are enough alternatives to rival plastic packaging. The lack of alternative packaging was the third biggest issue; behind ocean (65%) and land (54%) pollution.   Just under three-quarters of the participants polled said brands and manufacturers have the most responsibility to help the plastic problem; with 54% saying that consumers have more responsibility than the government (52%).   When asked about which supermarkets have made the most progress in the past five years, nearly three in 10 said 'none of them', while 15% said Tesco. In comparison, just 3% believe Iceland has reduced its single-use plastics well, with only 4% believing Lidl has made significant progress.   The survey highlighted that nearly a quarter of participants are willing to attempt cutting out single use plastics completely, with 23% saying they have tried a plastic-free challenge. 18-34-year-olds were most likely to take on the challenge, with two-thirds, of those who took the challenge, saying they managed to complete it. Challenges ranged from a plastic-free month, to a single shop with the aim of  reducing the number of single-use plastic items bought.   Nearly three in 10 (29%) shoppers stated they felt 'quite concerned' about the number of single-use plastics used to package their food and drink, with a further 22% saying they felt a 'little concerned'. On the other hand, 7% answered 'it doesn't matter', with 3% unable to decide.

					Over a third of English councils support plans that could increase carbon emissions, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Over a third of English councils support plans that could increase carbon emissions: A recent survey by the BBC has revealed that around a third of English councils (33%) have supported plans that could potentially increase carbon emissions; including upgrading airports, building new roads and constructing underground tunnels.   Despite many councils advocating plans that could increase the amount of carbon in the atmosphere, nearly nine in 10 have declared a 'climate emergency'. Many of the most rural counties, however, believe there is there is no such a climate emergency; which may help to explain a more relaxed approach by certain councils.   Many people believe the government's plans to cut all greenhouse gases to almost zero, does not align with local council's plans to develop. When asked why the progression to net-zero emissions has been slow, two thirds of English councils stated the pandemic was a main reason. Furthermore, the Isle of Wight council has expressed their concern that the pandemic might delay their aim of being net-zero in 2030 by 10 years.   Another reason given for the slow progress towards net-zero emissions is the under-funding from the government. The National Audit Office has recently found that the government set aside £1.2billion to be put towards tackling the climate change issue; however, the competitive nature of these grants makes long term planning more difficult.   Helen Hayden, councillor for infrastructure and climate for Leeds city council, said: 'It would seem like an inconsistency. So, we do have to keep it in context and not let it distract us from doing all those things that will actually tackle the bigger issues that are in our city.'

					Job vacancies estimated at nearly one million for the first time since records began in 2001, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Job vacancies estimated at nearly one million for the first time since records began in 2001: A recent survey by the Office for National Statistics has revealed the number of job vacancies has been estimated to be at just under one million in June 2021. The estimated number of vacancies (953,000) is the highest estimated since records began in 2001.   It was also found that the Arts, Leisure and Food industry have created the most vacancies in the last few months, with most venues and companies fully reopening. In addition, analysts predicted the rate of unemployment would stay at just under 5% for the quarter, however, the figure slightly increased.   Despite the number of job vacancies increasing, the number of people on furlough has decreased to the lowest amount since the scheme was first introduced. Furthermore, the number of people with jobs increased in June and July by 182,000, and has grown by almost 500,000 in the few months prior. However, it is still estimated that the number of employed UK adults is 201,000; lower than before the pandemic started.    The study also found that wages grew from April to June in 2021 by 7% without bonuses and 9% including bonuses. The number of young and old people in work has also increased with the rate of employment up to 75% for the age categories, according to the findings.   Mims Davies, the Minister for Employment, said: 'There are positive signs of recovery in today's jobs figures [but] there is still work to do and we're focused on helping employers fill roles through our Plan for Jobs ' giving people of all ages the skills, support and experience needed to confidently land that next opportunity.'

					50 of the world's largest chemical firms post a 7% decline in sales in 2020, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 50 of the world's largest chemical firms post a 7% decline in sales in 2020: Chemical and Engineering News' recent global survey, has revealed that the top 50 global chemical firms report a decline of 7% in sales from 2019 to £584 billion in 2020. Much of this decline is thought to be mainly due to the pandemic, however, a change in mindset about renewable energy has meant many firms have put their efforts into testing new forms of cleaner energy.   The survey polled the 50 chemical firms with the highest sales during 2020, finding that data from 44 of the 50 firms who reported their annual earnings for 2020 shows a decline of 22%; in comparison to a 28% decline reported by 46 companies in 2019.   The survey also revealed the top earning chemical firms globally, with BASF showing they made £34 billion worth of chemical sales in 2020. BASF also unveiled new plans to decrease their emissions by a quarter, in comparison to 2018. In addition, they have put a lot of effort into testing new and renewable sources of energy, including electrically powered heaters in steam crackers.   The largest UK based chemical firm reported in the study was INEOS, with a reported £23 billion worth of chemical sales. They too are following BASF in their investments into renewable energy, specifically attempting to make hydrogen from water.   Although, on average, there was a 7% decline in chemical sales, not all sectors in the industry were damaged as much as others. Firms that supplied for the food and drink industry saw strong sales, whereas firms supplying for the automotive industry were hit hard by the pandemic. A strong factor in this variation was the decline of oil and gas prices, bringing down chemical prices also.

					Fewer young adults and teenagers report hesitancy towards getting the vaccine, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Fewer young adults and teenagers report hesitancy towards getting the vaccine: A recent survey by the Office of National Statistics has revealed a decline in the number of young adults and teenagers who feel hesitancy towards getting the coronavirus vaccine.    The survey of over 15,000 Brits aged 16 and over also revealed that hesitancy from those aged 18 to 21 has almost halved from 9% to 5% and from 14% to 11% for 16-and-17-year-olds. In addition, hesitancy among 22-25-year-olds dropped, although not as much as younger adults, from 10% to 9%.   The study also uncovered a disparity in hesitancy towards the vaccine, depending on where the participant lives. Adults who live in more deprived areas are more likely to show hesitancy towards getting the vaccine (8%) than people who live in less deprived areas (2%).   Furthermore, ethnicity and religion have an impact on the participant's views towards the vaccine, suggests the survey, with 14% of Muslim adults showing hesitancy, in comparison to 4% of Christian adults who feel the same. In addition, over one in five black or black British adults state hesitancy towards getting the vaccine, compared to 4% of white adults sharing the same views.   The biggest fall in results of adults reporting hesitancy, in terms of location, was found in West Wales and The Valleys (11%-5%); London also had a high drop in hesitancy, falling from 11% to 7%. It was found that the places where hesitancy was initially higher, saw the greatest drop in total.   Overall, public opinion towards the vaccine is mostly good found the survey with 96% of those surveyed having a positive sentiment towards the vaccine; with just 4% reporting hesitancy.

					Use of online legal services more than doubled since 2012 to 44%, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Use of Online Legal Services More Than Doubled Since 2012 to 44%:A survey has revealed that the use of legal services has more than doubled since 2012, climbing to 44%.    The Legal Services Consumer Panel tracker survey observed 3,500 people, also finding that since the start of the pandemic, 54% of consumers have accessed online services at least once.   When choosing which lawyer would be right for them, the survey revealed there  is a variety of opinions about what is best to look for. One in five said the lawyer's reputation is a key factor, up from 73% in 2012, however, only three in 10 said they would shop around before selecting their lawyer, with 74% of the opinion that they had a wide range of professionals to pick from.   Although there are many different ways for someone to pick the best lawyer for them, many people are choosing correctly the survey suggests, as overall customer satisfaction of legal services used has increased from 79%, in 2012, to 83% in the latest polling in addition, satisfaction with the outcome has also increased since 2012, from 84% to 89%.   Just 9% of respondents said they would describe legal services they have received as poor value for money; however, the results depend heavily on the nature of their situation, or case. For example, people dealing with more personal matters such as their family or injury claims, are less likely to be satisfied with the outcome than people with commoditised matters.   The survey also uncovered that 61% of respondents found out about prices through discussions with their lawyers; 8% through their provider's website and 2% through other comparison websites. Furthermore, just 6% stated they found it difficult to understand the price based off the information they were given, with 77% saying they understood the prices.   Sarah Chamber, chair of the Legal Services Consumer Panel, said: "While shopping around has increased over the last ten years, past experience or personal recommendations have remained the most popular ways to choose service providers, highlighting the importance of providing every client with a high-quality service."

					Seven out of 10 charities rate the Charity Commission's service as 'good', finds report
				</title>
				<description>
					 Seven out of 10 charities rate the Charity Commission's service as 'good': An annual government survey looking at the experiences and views of people who use the Charity Commission has found that 69% rated the organisation's service as 'good' -- up 5% since the last survey. Broken down further, the proportion of respondents saying the service is 'very good' was 29%, while 40% rated it 'good'.   In comparison, 7% rated the Charity Commission's service as 'poor' -- down 3% since 2019-20.   The survey found that larger charities polled were less likely to rate the Commission highly.   Amongst charities with an income of £0 - £10,000, 73% rated the services as 'good', compared with 66% of those with an income of £100,000 to £500,000 and 57% with a turnover of between £1m and £5m per year.   The survey polled 1,386 charities for the research and found in addition that the rating of services had improved amongst all customers since last year, with Volunteers the group who had the highest proportion rating the service as 'good'. This was followed by 'Trustee Board or Committee Members (74%), Chairs (73%), Professional Advisors (73%) and Treasurers (72%).    Making contact with the Charity Commission   The research found that the most popular way charities come into contact with the Commission was through its website (78% - down from 84% in 2019/20), followed by using its register (50% down from 57%), and sending emails (43% down from 51%). Around one in six (17%) had called the contact centre, while 10% said they had written letters.   Of all the channels used to make contact with the Charity Commission, the register performed the best according to respondents (85% rated the channel as 'good'), followed by the website (78%), email (72%), direct contact (70%), contact centre (66%) and letter or post (40%).   When asked how easy it is to find information on the website 84% said it was easy, while 17% found the process difficult.

					93% of Federation of Master Builders members have experienced an increase in the cost of materials, finds survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 93% of Federation of Master Builders members have experienced an increase in the cost of materials: A survey carried out by the Federation of Master Builders (FMB) of its members has found that the overwhelming majority (93%) have seen price hikes when it comes to materials needed for projects in the first quarter of 2021 (January - March). This is up from 82% in the last quarter of 2020,   The latest FMB State of Trade Survey which is carried out quarterly among FMB members also found that shortages of tradespeople is also a key issue for the industry, with 38% of builders finding it difficult to hire bricklayers - up from 22% in the last quarter of 2020. More than a third (34%) said that they are having trouble contracting carpenters for projects, which has risen from 23% in Q4 2020. Shortages were noted in almost all of the key trades found the survey, with members reporting difficulty hiring general labourers (up 10%) and plasterers (up 9%).    At the same time as the industry faces shortages, the survey revealed that enquiries have increased at their fastest rate in more than ten years, with 70% of members reporting an increase. More than half the members polled (55%) said they have also seen greater workloads in the first part of 2021, compared to the final quarter of 2020.   The research also found that more FMB members reported an increase in the price builders charge for work to be carried out in Q1 2021, compared to Q4 2020 (66% up from 29%). This is due to rising workloads as well as increases in wages and salaries and rising building costs. It was also revealed that in light of this, some respondents reported they are being undercut on price by rogue traders.    The survey was completed by 215 FMB members between 31 March and 21 April 2021.

				<description>
					 Three in 10 UK adults think about impact on the environment when buying food: A survey has revealed that more people are considering the impact on the environment when it comes to their food purchases, with 29% saying the are shopping more consciously due to climate change.   The survey by First Milk polled 2,161 UK adults in March 2021, finding that three-quarters of respondents are concerned about climate change (76%). It also found that a third of those polled (33%) believe that farming and the production of dairy products is significantly contributing to environmental issues and a change to the earth's climate.    The research highlighted that nearly half of the respondents polled (46%) believe that the rearing of animals for meat is a significant contributing factor to climate change, while 37% said that food waste is.    The survey also asked people about their preferences when it comes to buying and consuming dairy products, with more than three-quarters (78%) saying that they would be more inclined to buy milk and other dairy products if they were from cows that have access to pasture and the outdoors. It also found that 63% of participants were concerned about the welfare of cows used within the UK dairy industry.   The majority of people surveyed (94%) said they buy dairy products for either themselves or for someone else, however, amongst 18-24 year-olds, this figure was considerably smaller (78%).    When it comes to geographical regions, Northern Ireland came top for the purchase of dairy products, with 98% of respondents regularly buying them, compared to 78% in London, the lowest purchaser.    Mark Brooking, sustainability director at First Milk said: '...we all share the responsibility for communicating to consumers about the great work going on across the farming sector and highlighting the importance of the many initiatives that underline the positive benefits of UK farming and food.'

					Survey reveals rail passenger satisfaction at 10-year low
				</title>
				<description>
					 Survey reveals rail passenger satisfaction at 10-year low: According to the latest  National Passenger Rail Survey (NPRS) by Transport Focus, rail passenger satisfaction has fallen to the lowest level since 2007.    The poll, which surveys 50,000 passengers found that overall customer satisfaction had dropped to 79% -  which equates to one in five passengers.being dissatisfied.    Twice a year the survey asks passengers to rate their experiences in a number of areas including value for money, the reliability of trains, station satisfaction and how well train companies deal with delays.    The most recent findings show that overall, 46% of journeys were deemed 'satisfactory' when considering the price of a ticket - which dropped to less than a third (31%) among regular passengers.      Of all the train operators, passengers using Great Northern Trains were the least satisfied with a rating of 68% being given for overall satisfaction, followed by Northern (72%), South Western Railway (73% ), TransPennine Express (73%), and Greater Anglia (73%).       The highest ratings were achieved by Heathrow Express (96%), Grand Central (94%), Chiltern Railways (92%), Hull Trains (91%), Merseyrail (90%) and Virgin Trains (90%).        Of the 25 train operators listed, only two, Heathrow Express and Chiltern Railways, improved on their 2017 satisfaction rating, up 5% and 4% respectively. Seven 'significantly declined' according to the report including Great Northern (-9%), Northern (-9%), TransPennine Express (-8%), Greater Anglia (-8%), Thameslink (-6%), ScotRail (-6%), and London North Eastern Railway (-5%)   Chief executive of Transport Focus, Anthony Smith, said: 'Government and the industry must continue to focus on performance. In the longer term, the government's rail review must bring about fundamental change.   'Passenger irritation at poor performance erodes their most basic trust in the industry. Passenger frustration at continual fare increases saps confidence in the system to reform itself.    'A better value for money and more reliable railway must arrive soon for passengers.'

				<description>
					 UK's most reliable car brand revealed in survey of car owners: A recent survey has revealed the nation's most reliable car brand, according to the number of issues experienced.     The 2019 JD Power survey polled 11,530 owners of vehicles registered from November 2015 to January 2018 about issues they had experienced with their cars across eight categories including driving experience; features/controls/displays (FCD); vehicle interior; and engine and transmission.   The survey found Peugeot to be the most reliable car brand over the last twelve months, with the least problems recorded - 77 per 100 vehicles. Behind the French car manufacturer was Skoda (88 PP100) followed by Hyundai (90 PP100) Nissan  (94 pp100)  and Suzuki (94 PP100).   The poll also found that only one premium brand made it into the top ten (Volvo, in tenth position, with 106 problems recorded per 100 vehicles.     Looking more at the premium brands, Mercedes- Benz came in at 2oth position, the second premium car entry in the survey, followed by Land Rover (21st position), Jaguar (23rd) and Audi (167). A the bottom of the poll was BMW with 181 problems recorded per 100 vehicles flagged in the survey.   The poll also found that just under half the respondents polled said they would 'definitely' buy a car from the same manufacturer when they come to update their vehicle, which compares to just 43% in 2015.   Looking further at repurchase intent, more than half (54%) of those who did not experience problems intend to repurchase the same brand (the same as last year), whereas of drivers who had costly repairs and said that owning their car was 'very unsatisfactory', just 16% said they 'definitely will' buy the same brand next time.

					Survey reveals we spend 50 days a year looking at smartphone screens
				</title>
				<description>
					 Survey reveals we spend 50 days a year looking our smartphones: A recent survey has revealed we spend an average of 50 days per year looking at our phone screens, which when broken down equates to an average of 3 hours and 23 minutes every day.    The poll of 2,077 phone users by digital agency, Code Computerlove found that the amount of time spent looking at smartphone screens is even higher among younger consumers, with the average length of time spent by 16-24 year olds being almost 4 hours a day (3hrs 58 minutes) - that equates to 60 days per year.  The over 55s by contrast spent the least amount of time looking at their phones.    When asked about how happy they were with the amount of time they spent glued to their phone, 16-24 year olds were the least happy ( 26%)  followed by  25-34 year-olds (22%) and 35-44 year olds (21%). Just 5% of over 55s were unhappy with how much time they spent looking at their device screen.    The survey asked respondents about how anxious they would feel at the thought of giving up their apps for 30 days, with 25-34 year-olds being revealed as the most anxious. Sixty-seven percent (67%) said they were 'quite' or 'very' anxious at the prospect, followed by 65% of 16-24 year olds. The group most at ease with giving up their apps were the over 55s with just over a third (36%) saying it would make them anxious.    Speaking of taking a break from their mobiles, the survey revealed three in ten (31%) had taken a digital detox from their phones. Again this was greater among 16-24 year-olds with 44% saying they had taken a digital break, as had 42% of 25-34 year olds and 30% of 35-44 year-olds.    The research also found that most people (64%) use their phone at the same time as watching TV, followed by in bed (55%) on public transport (34%) and at work (33%).

					The biggest obstacle to getting a job is age discrimination according to survey respondents
				</title>
				<description>
					 The biggest obstacle to getting a job is age discrimination according to survey respondents: A national survey of job-seekers has revealed respondents looking for work believe age discrimination is the biggest obstacle to them getting back into employment.    The survey polled 2,027 respondents who had previously worked in management, executive administration or manual labour who were not currently in employment, education or training for work and found almost a quarter (24%) believed the top reason they were overlooked was because of a younger person being favoured.   Asked about what they felt was preventing them from getting back into employment, a third (32%) said they felt the skills they now need compared to when they trained are very different, while 29% believe jobs are offered in-house to people already working for the company. Technology was also blamed by 15% of respondents for making many jobs redundant, along with not being able to find a role to suit them (11%), being repeatedly unsuccessful at interview (11%), poor health (9%), and loss of confidence (6%).    Six per cent said they still didn't know what they wanted to do - which held them back.   Interviews   When it came to interviews, over half (55%) said they prepared well for interviews by reading articles and researching the company including information about who was interviewing them, with an additional 4% trying to reach out to someone in the business before the interview.    Just under a quarter, however, said that they just a have a quick look at the website before they go to the interview. Not knowing how to prepare for the interview was an issue for 11% while 7% admitted to doing nothing at all in preparation.    Support wish list   The poll also revealed the areas respondents would like some support in to help increase their chances of being selected at interview. One in five (21%) said they would like more help in ascertaining which jobs were relevant to them, while 18% would like to improve their interview technique. For 17%, support with writing their CV would help them back into work, while 14% believe feedback after the interview would be helpful so they could learn from constructive comments.

					Six in 10 Brits polled fear the high street will be gone in a decade
				</title>
				<description>
					 Six in 10 Brits fear the high street will be gone in a decade: With the huge growth of online retail the high street has been in decline - with new reports of favourite stores closures being announced in the national news all the time.    Research by KIS Finance has found 61% of UK consumers polled are worried that within 10 years there will be no high street.    Respondents (1,000) were asked which factors could entice them back to the high street with four in 10 (41%) saying they would like to see more staff to make the experience faster, while a third (34%) said having a clearer stock check system might persuade them to ditch their online basket. Just over a quarter (26%) would like to see self-service checkouts to save them from queueing, while 27% propose a 24-hour service so they can shop any time, night or day.    The research also revealed the stores people believe will be most and least likely to exist in the next decade. Standing the most chance of survival according to respondents are restaurants, which they placed in the strongest position, followed by coffee shops, second-hand shops and bars. At the bottom of the list were independent retailers followed by travel agents, banks and cinemas.    High street stores most/least likely to survive:    1.Restaurants   2.Coffee shops   3.Second-hand shops   4.Bars   5.Fast food restaurants   6.Retails chains e.g. department stores   7.Clubs   8.Cinemas   9.Banks    10.Travel agents   11.Independent retailers     The research also mapped which regions of the UK had been hit the hardest by high street store closures in the last year - with Leeds, Glasgow and Aberdeen taking the top three places.    The cities hit hardest in the last 12 months:   1.Leeds   2.Glasgow   3.Aberdeen   4.Bradford   5.Cardiff   6.Doncaster   7.Leicester   8.Manchester     Holly Andrews, Managing Director at KIS Finance said:  "The reason why so many retailers are struggling with their stores is because consumer shopping habits are changing and the high street needs to change with it, creating a more community-led atmosphere with more accessibility and variety for everyone.'

					Majority of UK ports not prepared for Brexit, according to poll
				</title>
				<description>
					 Majority of UK ports not prepared for Brexit: As the date for leaving the EU draws closer, a survey has revealed that the majority of UK ports are not prepared for the changes. The research by executive search firm, Odgers Berndtson found that just 16% of the firms polled have made 'significant or practical' plans in respect of Brexit.    The survey of company leaders of around 100 UK ports and harbours set out to find how prepared regional ports around the UK are for the EU departure. It found that almost six in ten respondents (59%) were expecting Brexit to have a 'negative' or 'strongly negative' impact.   In terms of how they will manage Brexit, a quarter (25%) said that despite limited preparation they are positioned to deal with it well.    More than 4 in 10 of those polled said they were doubtful about how well they would be able to manage any extra demands, while a third said they felt they could manage the increase in demand but needed more investment.   Eighty-three percent (83%) said they have the teams in place to keep operations well managed in the shorter term   When asked what they are likely to focus on as they plan for Brexit, eight in ten (80%) said their focus will primarily be investing in physical infrastructure. Over a quarter (26%) said technology will be the first thing they invest in.   Head of Odgers Berndtson Maritime  Shipping Practice, Paul Butterworth said: 'The ports industry is keen to seize on any opportunities arising from Brexit, but this is the first real indication of what's actually happening outside ports like Dover.'

					Two-thirds of young people make their own music, finds survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Two-thirds of young people make their own music: A recent piece of youth-focused research has given insight into the impact of music in the lives of young people, and how they engage with it. It found that two-thirds of children aged 7 -17 years make some form of music themselves.    The Youth Music poll, named The Sound of the Next Generation questioned 1,000 young people across England and the results show a significant increase in engagement in music since the charity's last survey in 2006.       It found that most of the children (97%) had listened to music in the past week, while 67% were involved in making music of their own - a significant rise since 2006 when it was 39%.     Singing was the most popular form of music making, with 44% saying they regularly sang. The figure rose to 71% with girls aged 7 - 10.   Almost 1 in 5 young males (16 - 17-years-old) said they create their own music using computer software, while three in ten (30%) young people said they play a musical instrument with piano being the most popular choice, followed closely by the guitar. Interestingly, 25% of those who said they play revealed they are teaching themselves, while 23% are taking lessons from friends or family.    Respondents were also asked about their favourite musical acts, with Ed Sheeran, Little Mix and Stormzy coming out on top. However, these were just some of the 633 different artists mentioned across 300 musical genres, reports Youth Music.   When asked if they considered themselves to be 'musical' 64% of those polled answered yes, an increase from 48% in 2006. The study found music made the majority feel happy (85%) as well as making them feel 'cool' (41%) and excited (39%). It also found music was the top pastime along with gaming, followed by sport, drama, dancing and arts/crafts.

				<description>
					 Chocolate is top food Brits miss when following a healthy diet: While many people start the new year with plans to improve their health and take more exercise, a survey has revealed the foods gym-goers miss the most.   According to the survey, chocolate is the number one food people miss when embarking on a healthy eating and fitness programme, followed by ice-cream and pizza.   Such is the lure of forbidden food that 40% of the 1,000 polled said the main reason they do exercise is so they can eat what they want without the worry of piling on the pounds.    The survey, commissioned by frozen food retailer, Iceland, also found that cake, bread, and Chinese takeaways are among the foods most likely to tempt us as well as alcohol, fizzy drinks, biscuits and sweets.   To lessen the impact of overindulgence, respondents believe that they have to exercise at least six times a month to avoid any undesired effects.   According to the poll, Tuesday is the day when respondents feel in control of their healthy eating and are more likely to make sensible food choices. Saturday, on the other hand, is the day most respondents fall back into bad habits.    So how to respondents recover from giving into temptation?  Four in ten (41%) said they try to get back in the zone by going for a long walk; a quarter said they go for a run or a jog and a fifth said they go swimming to work off the unwanted calories.

					Survey suggests smartphone shopping to increase by £10bn this year
				</title>
				<description>
					 Survey suggests smartphone shopping to increase by £10bn this year: Findings of a recent poll looking at how people use their smartphones suggest that more consumers will shop online this year using a smartphone or tablet than through visiting a physical retail store.   Following a uSwitch poll of 2,005 UK shoppers, researchers predict a rise of £10billion for goods bought via smart devices in 2019. According to the survey, 58% of respondents will shop using their smartphones or tablets this year  ' which equates to 30 million Britons. This is an increase of 12 million on 2018 figures, taking spending up to £25 billion.   Findings from the research show that for the first time, smartphone purchases (58%) have overtaken visits to high street stores and shopping centres (56%), with the top reason given by the majority of shoppers (66%) being the convenience it offers.    Other reasons for choosing shopping online versus in-store include being able to shop at all hours (64%), the ability to search for the best prices (40%) and being offered a wider choice of products (39%).    The most popular products to buy online     Of all the products we buy online, the poll found apparel topped the list with 69% saying they used their smartphones to buy clothes. Other items include books (51%), grocery shopping (47%) and tickets for the cinema (43%).        Head of retail insights and analytics at the British Retail Consortium, Rachel Lund, said:          "The BRC-Hitwise monitor shows more than 50% of hits on retailers' websites coming from mobile phones. The challenge continues to be in driving conversions.        "Smartphones are not a threat to the high street, but an opportunity for retailers able to integrate the physical and digital experience, particularly as shoppers often browse websites whilst in shops.'

					59% not in support of wet wipe ban, according to survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 59% not in support of a wet wipe ban: Back in May, the national media was a hive of opinion following a DEFRA pledge to reduce avoidable plastic waste - which included single-use disposable wipes often used for removing make-up, domestic cleaning or cleaning up babies after a nappy change.   At the time, a UK spokesperson for DEFRA said: "As part of our 25-year environment plan, we have pledged to eliminate all avoidable plastic waste, and that includes single-use products like wet wipes."    However, a survey by Lanes Group PLC has found 59% of respondents would not be in support of a ban on disposable wipes. It also found that 31% admitted to flushing wipes down the toilet ' a major contributing factor to the blockage issues costing water companies millions every year.   Water UK report that blockages in UK sewers add £100m to water bills annually - and it says wet wipes are the main problem.   Fatbergs   When it comes to fatbergs - the giant obstructions in our sewerage systems formed when non-biodegradable products fuse with fats, oil and grease (FOG) -  the survey found 93% of the 1000 respondents polled said the public needs more education.    The survey also revealed that almost half of those questioned (47%) admit to disposing of FOG down the kitchen sink, this is despite three quarters (75%) saying they were 'quite aware' or 'very aware' of the dangers of pouring such substances down the drain.   Of all the wipes used by people in the UK, the survey highlighted antibacterial cleaning wipes as the most frequently used, with 52% saying they formed part of their cleaning routine, followed by baby wipes (44%).  Respondents were most in support of eliminating cleaning wipes and moistened wipes sold as an alternative to toilet paper, while just 15% said they would support the Government banning baby wipes.    'Flushable' wipes    The BBC reported earlier this month that no wet wipes have so far passed water industry tests for disintegration - despite being marketed as 'flushable'.   While water companies blame wet wipes for expensive blockages, companies who make 'flushable' wipes insist that their tests are adequate and it is the non-flushable variety wreaking havoc in sewers.    Michelle Ringland, Head of Marketing at Lanes for Drains, said: 'Disposable wipes should never ever be flushed down the toilet, even if they say 'flushable' on the packaging. The vast majority of them do not biodegrade easily and are usually made from polyester, containing millions of microfibers that are impregnated with chemicals."   Since writing this insight it has been revealed (January 2109) that all wipes passing stringent industry tests will be able to display a 'fine to flush' logo (drawn up by the water industry) on product packaging.    Michael Roberts of Water UK said: "This is an important step in the battle against blockages. We've all seen the impact of fatbergs, and we want to see fewer of them."

					72% of teachers know colleague who has quit over pupil bad behaviour, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 72% of teachers know colleague who has quit over pupil bad behaviour: A survey for think tank, Policy Exchange has found more than seven out of ten teachers polled know a work colleague who has left the profession because of poor student behaviour in schools.    The report called 'It just Grinds You Down' is one of the most extensive to be conducted looking at persistent disruptive behaviour in schools and what can be done about it.      The poll found three-quarters (75%) of teachers feel low-level disruption in their classrooms is a 'frequent' or 'very frequent occurrence'. It also found that 54% of teachers feel that disruptive students are affecting the quality of education they are able to offer to other students.    Deterring potential teachers    According to seven out of ten respondents (71%) disruptive pupils are a key reason why many potential teachers are being put off joining the profession, while teacher retention is also an issue with almost two-thirds (62%) admitting they are currently, or have previously considered leaving as a direct result of student bad behaviour.       Serious bad behaviour witnessed by teachers   While 75% of teachers experience daily low-level disruption (talking when a teacher is talking, using a mobile phone and arriving late for lessons) there are also more worrying behaviours some teachers have to deal with. Of the more 'serious' bad behaviours, 21% said they had seen a pupil physically attack a teacher once in the last year, while 19% had witnessed a student taking drugs or drinking alcohol (15%) in the past year.    Teacher training    When asked how well their teacher training had prepared them for their experiences in the classroom and for managing poor pupil behaviour, 44% answered 'not very well' or 'not well at all'.    Another question revealed that over half of those polled (59%) were either 'very reluctant' or 'quite reluctant' to talk about their behaviour management difficulties worrying that this may mean other staff take a poor view of their teaching abilities.

					Less than 20% of kids getting recommended amount of exercise per day, survey finds
				</title>
				<description>
					 Less than 20% of kids getting recommended amount of exercise per day: A new Sport England survey has found just 17.5% of kids are getting the Chief Medical Officer's recommended amount of exercise (of one hour) per day.   The Active Lives Children and Young People Survey is the largest survey ever undertaken of its kind, polling 130,000 youngsters (or in some cases their parents) aged between 5 and 16 years in England. The survey looks into how active children in England are day to day, both in and out of the school environment.    It found 23.9% (1.7 million) do around half an hour to 59 minutes of physical activity daily (considered 'fairly active'), while a third of those polled (32.9% equal to 2.3 million) said they do less than half an hour per day. There are also 1.8 million (25.7%) who exercise for an average of one hour per day but not necessarily every day.  Active every day for at least an hour are 1.2 million children - 17.5% of those polled.    Also highlighted by the poll was that boys tend to be more active than girls with 20% of boys undertaking one hour of regular daily exercise compared to 14% of girls (looking across the entire range 5-16 years). As they grow older from, the gap widens.    What kind of exercise are our kids participating in?   For kids of high school age, team sports (football, rugby, rounders, etc) make up the largest proportion of exercise taken (65% of 11-13 year olds and 56% of 13-16 year olds), while the more likely activities for younger children (5 ' 7 years) are active play and informal games such as playground 'tag' (79%), walking to school or other places (73%) and swimming (53%).    Effect of income in activity undertaken   The survey also found that children from poorer families are less active than those from affluent homes, with 39% of people from the poorest families engaging in less than half an hour of exercise each day, compared to a quarter (25%) from families with larger family incomes. It also found that where 85% of children from wealthier families can swim 25 metres by the end of primary school, that figure drops to 42% when looking at the least affluent.   Tim Hollingsworth, chief executive of Sport England said:   'This research is the first of its kind anywhere in the world and is a big wake-up call for all of us.   'We all care about the health and wellbeing of our children. These results tell us that what is currently being done to support them is not enough and change is required.'

					Best and Worst ISPs revealed in customer satisfaction poll
				</title>
				<description>
					 Best and Worst ISPs revealed in customer satisfaction poll: The results are in from the latest Which? magazine poll looking at how satisfied broadband customers are with their internet service provider.    The magazine surveyed over 7,000 broadband customers - with 71% having being with their provider for three years or more. It found that overall, 57% were unhappy with the service they received, with issues ranging from poor speeds to price hikes.    When it came to individual companies, Zen Internet, which says its puts 'people before profits' was judged the best provider when it came to overall satisfaction with 86% of customers happy with the service overall. The independent provider was followed by Utility Warehouse (79%), Plusnet (73%) SSE (70%) and John Lewis completing the top five with 69%.   At the bottom of the table were three of the biggest ISPs: Sky Broadband (47% satisfaction), TalkTalk (48%) and BT (49%) followed by Post Office in ninth place with 56%, EE (60%) and Vodafone (62%).    The survey also looked at the increase in payment to ISPs when introductory offers expire, which can take the annual cost way beyond what customers had been paying initially. Ofcom has recently announced that by 2019, new rules will be introduced to notify customers when they are approaching the end of their minimum contract term so they can decide if they want to stay or make a switch.    The survey found Virgin Media's prices increased on average for customers on its VIVID 100 deal by more than half (52%) after the introductory 12 months taking the cost from £24 per month to £47 ' a 74% increase. Sky Broadband came in second with a 42% increase, followed by Plusnet (40%), SSE (37%), EE (33%) and John Lewis Broadband (30%). With smaller cost increases were PostOffice (24%), BT (23%), TalkTalk (15%) and Zen Internet (9%).      Top UK ISPs by Customer Satisfaction   1. Zen Internet 86% 2. Utility Warehouse 79% 3. Plusnet 73% 4. SSE 70% 5. John Lewis 69% 6. Vodafone 62% 7. EE 60% 8. Virgin Media 59% 9. Post Office 56% 10. BT 49% 11. TalkTalk 48% 12. Sky Broadband 47%

					 UK water infrastructure rates highly in global survey: The UK's water infrastructure has scored highly in the Global Index Survey, judged the second-best infrastructure sector in the UK and ranked higher than the global average.   The survey, for Global Infrastructure Investor Association (GIIA) polled 20,000 from 29 countries and looks at 10 infrastructure sectors including road networks, airports and energy.    The UK's water and sewerage system was rated as the second best area in the UK of all the sectors, with 65% judging it to be 'good' or 'very good'. Airports took the top spot scoring 67%.    After water and sewerage were motorways and major roads (54%), digital infrastructure (52%), the local road network (42%) and energy generation (39%). Nuclear infrastructure was 7th in the table at 36% and rail infrastructure including track and station performing less strongly with just a third of people rating the sector very or fairly good.   Over half (54%) agreed that the rail infrastructure was 'fairly' or 'very poor', along with new housing supply - also at 54%     When it comes to a worldview, Britain's water and sewerage system ranked higher than the global average of 52% and also the G8 average (57%). It fell below that of Germany (ranked highest at 75%), Czech Republic (73%), Saudi Arabia (70%), Australia (68%), Sweden (68%), and France (66%) and on a par with Canada (65%) and Malaysia (65%).    Chief executive of Water UK, Michael Roberts said: "It's no coincidence that our water and sewerage infrastructure is rated so highly, given that water companies have invested £150 billion on improvements to the industry since privatisation.'   Other findings...   The survey also found that 73% of Brits believe that further investment in infrastructure is vital to Britain's future economic growth, however, 57% believe not enough is being done to improve the UK's needs relating to infrastructure.    Over a third (36%) feel the area where they live is not getting a fair share UK infrastructure investment.

					Just 15% support fracking, government survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 Just 15% support fracking, government survey reveals: A quarterly survey into public attitudes towards fracking has revealed support is at the second lowest level it has been since the poll was created almost half a decade ago.    Just 15% of those polled said they were in support of the controversial process to extract gas from the earth by drilling into shale rock.   The BEIS Public Attitudes Tracker polled around 4,000 households across the UK and found that support of fracking in the UK was down from 18% in March 2018, and up two percentage points from its record low support of 13% 12 months ago. The greatest support for fracking was in March 2014, when 29% of those polled were in support.   The survey revealed the number of people 'seriously concerned'  about fracking was 31%, slightly down from 32% in March when the question last appeared in the survey. Just twelve months ago, 36% opposed the process ' the highest number since the survey began in 2013.    Half of those polled (50%) said they neither support nor oppose fracking.    In the last quarterly survey (August, 2018) questions about public support and opposition for fracking were dropped for the first time since 2013 - with plans to ask the questions annually instead.  However, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) has now reinstated the questions due to entering a 'new era of shale gas exploration in the UK'.  A spokesperson said " it is only right that we routinely gauge the opinion of the British public and so the questions on supporting/opposing shale gas development will return to each quarter of the tracker.'      Reasons for supporting fracking   The primary reason for people supporting fracking was that the UK needs to use all available energy sources (36%), followed by it 'reduces dependence on other fossil fuels'(25%). Other reasons include 'good for local jobs and investment (23%), 'reduces dependence on other countries for UK's energy supply (23%) and 'will have a positive impact on UK economy (19%). The possible reduction of energy bills was also a reason for 17% of those polled.      Main reasons for opposing fracking    When it comes to being opposed to fracking, 58% said it was because of the 'loss/destruction of the natural environment', while 27% said they believed it was not safe. Over a quarter (26%) were in opposition due to the fear of it causing earthquakes, while 25% of respondents feel there is too much risk and uncertainty around the process. The same percentage (25%) are worried about the risk of contamination of the water supply.        *The survey data was collected in September 2018, before a number of earth tremors were felt near Blackpool close to Cuadrilla's fracking site after work began there in October.

					30% of charities say property is a barrier to charitable objectives
				</title>
				<description>
					 30% of charities say property is a barrier to charitable objectives: Three in ten UK charities say one of the barriers to delivering their objectives is property - a figure that is almost twice that recorded in the 2016 survey when it was just 17%.    The research findings of the fourth bi-annual Charity Property Matters Survey showed 33% of charities now rent their properties from commercial landlords. Just four years ago in 2014, this figure was a much smaller, 21%.    Published by the Ethical Property Foundation in partnership with the Charity Commission and the Charity Finance Group, the research sought to learn more about how charities use and manage their property, whether it is rented or owned and any other issues facing organisations relating to property.   It found that more charities now rent rather than own the properties they operate out of (31%) and 41% say that no one is specifically responsible for the property within their organisation.    When it comes to securing funding to pay for property costs 32% said they had found this more difficult than other fundraising, and 26% believe they will likely have this challenge in the future. For 23% of those polled, paying for property amounts to over 20% of the organisation's total annual spend and 27% have fallen foul of unexpected costs linked to property.    Over a third of respondents (36%) feel that property, represents a 'high' or 'very high' risk to their organisation and 66% do not have a strategic property plan in place  ' a figure that is up 14 percentage points since 2016 when it was at 56%.    The survey also found 44% did not regularly report back to charity trustees about property and 39% do not carry out regular risk assessments on properties within their organisations.

					Survey reveals charities most likely to receive legacy gift from supporters
				</title>
				<description>
					 Survey reveals charities most likely to receive legacy gift from supporters: A survey polling charity supporters (age 50+) over the course of the last year has revealed the top 20 organisations likely to benefit from legacy gifts.    The Legacy Potential Premier League Table 2018/19 carried out by fastmap, asked 10,000 respondents about the charities they would consider leaving or have already offered a legacy donation to - with the top 20 for legacy consideration winning a place in the league table.   The table seeks to show which organisations have the largest opportunity for legacy gifts and how their competitors match up. Placement also take into consideration other factors such as motivations to make a bequest, the scale of the support the charity has, as well as barriers to support.   Animal charities at the top of the table   Animal charities took the four top league places with the premier spot going to Cats Protection, closely followed by Battersea. The Dogs Trust and the RSPCA were placed in third and fourth positions, respectively.   In fifth place was Cancer Research UK followed by the RNLI (sixth), MacMillan Cancer Support (seventh) and the NSPCC in eighth position.   The Woodland Trust and Help for Heroes took the final two places inside the top ten (9th and 10th respectively).    The survey also revealed of those charities in the league table, the NSPCC had the most barriers to leaving a legacy gift, according to those polled.

					Energy debt in the UK up 24% since last year, according to survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Energy debt in the UK up 24% since last year: The cost of running and heating our homes has taken a hike in the last twelve months, with the number of UK households in debt to energy suppliers rising by 300,000, according to a new survey.   The survey by uSwitch found 11% of the 2,032 polled owe an average of £134 to energy suppliers, which when looking at the bigger picture means three million consumers owe a collective amount of £400 million.   Where in previous years, energy users may have expected to be in credit after the warmer months and a reduced need to use gas and electric, the survey revealed that the overall debt to energy firms has increased by £75million since last autumn.    This is causing worry to 41% of those questioned, especially as over a third (36%) felt they actually used less energy this year over the summer than they previously have done.   The figures show that the number of households in debt to suppliers has gone up by 12% since this time twelve months ago and 36% more than in 2016.    This year, the headlines have been full of news about energy companies increasing their prices in response to costs at wholesale level. There have been 55 increases from 32 suppliers since January - which equates to adding on almost an additional £900 million to domestic bills annually.    A spokesperson for uSwitch, Rik Smith said:    "The soaring number of households in debt to their energy supplier is a clear indication of the pressure people are under just to make ends meet.   'Now is the time for consumers to take action, by making their homes more energy efficient or ensuring they don't pay any more than they need to for the energy they use.'

					Survey reveals 84% of charity workers are looking for a new job
				</title>
				<description>
					 Survey reveals 84% of charity workers are looking for a new job: More than 8 in 10 people who work in the charity sector are planning a job move or are thinking about taking up a new challenge.   That is according to a recent poll of charity workers conducted by recruitment agency TPP, which also found that just under a third (31%) said they do not feel their current role is helping progress their careers.    When respondents were asked if they were planning to change jobs, 37% said 'yes', while 45% answered 'yes for the right role'.   In terms of salaries, the Non-Profit Salary, Rewards  Retention Survey 2018 revealed over the last 12 months they have increased by 1.9%. It also found that women working in the charity sector earn 10% less than their male counterparts; part-time workers receive 4% less than those working full time, and salaries in London are 18% higher than elsewhere in the UK.    Just 8% of fundraisers received a bonus last year in addition to their salary, while 30% were paid extra for overtime or received time off in lieu.    Reasons for wanting to change jobs   The top reason for wanting to change jobs was to obtain a better salary, followed by desiring a more interesting role and in third place, to find a better work balance. Others felt a better location or commute would swing it  (4th position) while a 'better culture' at work was the 5th top reason for contemplating a switch.    The survey also revealed a desire for more flexible working, with 65% saying they could be enticed to change jobs if they could do more work from home.

					A third of people do not have a pension, survey finds
				</title>
				<description>
					 Third of people do not have a pension: A third of people in the UK do not have a pension in place to financially support them in retirement.   The survey by Finder.com, a comparison website for personal finances revealed 35% said they are without a pension. A third (36%) do not know how much they have in their pension pot and 43% are not clear on how much they need to save.   The survey polled 2,000 people and revealed a real lack of knowledge around pensions and how much one should amount to when it is time to retire.    Among 54 ' 74 year-olds 48% admitted they were in the dark about how much they actually needed for their retirement.    The survey revealed 21% of those polled thought £50,000 would be enough for their retirement ' which is considerably less than the minimum recommended figure of £260,000.   For millennials, 32% think that £50,000 will be enough, compared to a quarter of Gen X respondents (25%) and 19% of baby boomers.    When asked what they believe they will need to save for a comfortable retirement, millennials said £126,000, although 80% do not believe they will meet their predicted pension amount. Gen Xers predicted £188,000 although 75% do' feel they will reach their target and Baby Boomers predict they'll need £212,000 with only 59% thinking they'll meet the target before retirement.  This says Finder, is 'even more concerning' when considering the estimated amounts are considerably below the recommended amount of £260,000 ' £445,000.    The findings also show that despite auto-enrolment into workplace pensions, a third (35%) of respondents still are without a pension.    Jon Ostler, CEO at Finder said: 'It's often not a priority at a younger age, but the cost of retirement for millennials is something to be prepared for, especially as a higher percentage of this generation are expected to rent in their retirement.

					Mortgage applications are third greatest fear of homeowners, survey finds
				</title>
				<description>
					 Mortgage applications are third greatest fear of homeowners: A nationwide survey of homeowners has revealed insight into how stressful people find applying for a mortgage is, with 28% saying it ranked in their top three most stressful experiences in life.   The only things that were classed as more stressful, according to the poll by free online mortgage broker. Habito, was the death of a pet or losing your job.   Going through a mortgage application was more stressful for homeowners polled than public speaking (22%), losing a phone or special piece of jewellery (19%), a bad review at work (12%) and getting dumped via a text message (12%).   Of all the groups surveyed, Millennials are the most worried about the process of getting a mortgage. When asked what they would rather accept as an alternative activity, 23% said have an injection, while 15% said to visit the dentist for a filling and 5% said they would prefer to get a broken bone than put themselves through the ordeal.    In terms of regions where mortgage fear was most prevalent, Glasgow came top, closely followed by Plymouth and Southampton.    Daniel Hegarty, founder and CEO of Habito, said: 'The findings show just how hellish and feared the mortgage process has become. Buying a home and getting a mortgage shouldn't incite feelings of stress or extreme panic.'   Biggest fears breakdown:                     Potential Fears

				<description>
					 Fifth of drivers ready for electric or hybrid vehicles: A large survey of motorists has found that 22% now feel ready to change their wheels to an electric or hybrid model.   Only 2% currently own an eco-friendly motor but a poll by the AA of over 20,000 motorists shows that interest is starting to grow amongst motorists.   The survey also revealed a decline in people planning to buy a diesel vehicle as their next car, with just 12% saying it would be their first choice. The reason for shunning diesel in favour of other types of car include stories in the press (58%) and changing government policy (56%).    For people currently running diesel vehicles, a fifth have said they will not be buying another when they come to renew. Over nine in ten current diesel owners (92%) say they want the government to outline a clearer message about the future of diesel cars.   Since 2014 there has been a 470% increase in searches for used electric and hybrid cars.    AA chief executive officer, James Fairclough, said: 'The appetite for electric and hybrid vehicles has increased significantly over the last few years, which is in no small part due to big technological leaps forward in the space"

					Survey reveals UK museums and attractions serving the healthiest and least healthy food for kids
				</title>
				<description>
					 Survey reveals UK museums and attractions serving the healthiest and least healthy food for kids: A nationwide survey into the food available for children at museums and attractions across the UK has uncovered where families can find the healthiest and least healthy food options.    The Out to Lunch Survey by the Soil Association found that at many UK attractions there were more healthy options available to adults than there were for children - but also revealed there are attractions offering a wider variety of healthy options in their food halls and cafes. There are also those who the Soil Association say are 'denying children healthy choices'.    Gathering information about the various venues, undercover diners went along to the attractions armed with a wide-ranging list of questions. Attractions could pick up points depending upon the respondent's rating with a possible score of 160 available. Some of the questions asked included: 'Do chips accompany everything on the menu?'; 'Are vegetables incorporated into meals?'; 'Is free tap water available?' as well as questions about how family-friendly the food outlet at the attraction is.    Coming top of the league table, the Royal Botanic Garden in Edinburgh scored 3.5 stars out of 5 and a score of 105 out of 160 for its menu - making a huge leap from last year's results where they were down in 11th position. The attraction serves fresh produce from its own garden plus sources ingredients locally. In second was the Eden Project (100/160) followed by Chester Zoo (99/160) ZSL Whipsnade Zoo (98/160) and the Science Museum (94/160) which offers a selection of healthy food options and vegetarian menu and was a new entry to the league table.   Also in the upper half of the table were Wales Millennium Centre (90/160), Durham Cathedral (87/160) and The British Museum charting at number 8 with a score of  86/160, -- a climb of 10 places since 2016 following adding a portion of veg or salad to kids meals or lunchboxes.    The bottom end of the table   With room for improvement according to the Soil Association survey were Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow and Legoland Windsor, both joint bottom of the table in 22nd place with just 45 points. Third from bottom was Wiltshire's Stonehenge in 20th position (61/160), with London's The National Gallery (63/160) and MAC Birmingham (65/160) fourth and fifth from bottom respectively.   The Soil Association's Rob Percival said of the Out to Lunch campaign: 'The attractions at the top of the league table are showing that healthy and high-quality food can be fun and affordable. The attractions at the bottom are not giving families the opportunity to enjoy a balanced meal.'

					Majority of UK drivers would switch to public transport, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Majority of UK drivers would switch to public transport: An annual survey by the RAC has found 59% of motorists would ditch their cars in favour of public transport ' but only if services were better.   One of the questions posed to the poll's 1,808 motorists was why they choose to run cars instead of taking public transport.    For 44% of respondents, the reliability of public transport was the top reason for using their car instead; the second was higher fares (39%), followed by cuts in local services third (33%) and a deterioration in public transport - the reason given by almost a quarter of respondents (24%).    Just 11% said they wouldn't change their current car usage if public transport improved.    In terms of how much they use their personal vehicles, a third polled (33%) said they feel more dependent on their car than they did 12 months ago.   Off the back of the survey, the RAC is calling for the government to improve public transport to make it more reliable, affordable and frequent so that it may be a viable option as an alternative to car journeys. They are also asking motorists to help make small changes to help curb the environmental effects of motoring and reduce traffic on the roads.   RAC chief engineer, David Bizley said:    'Our research clearly shows many people don't think public transport offers a viable alternative to the car for their needs, especially those living in more rural areas.'

					Half of drivers admit their road knowledge is poor, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Half of drivers admit their road knowledge is poor: A survey of drivers by road safety charity IAM RoadSmart has found over half consider their road knowledge poor ' with 50% being unable to identify a roundabout sign.    The poll of 1,000 sought to find out how clued up motorists are on the Highway Code - road rules intended to keep the drivers and pedestrian's safe.    More than two thirds (68%) had no understanding of 'the two-second rule' when it comes to driving in dry weather, with over half (53%) confusing it with remaining two car lengths behind a vehicle   Other signs that were not recognised were 'dual carriageway ends' with 43% being unable to identify the triangular sign depicting two roads merging into one.  Of all the age groups to get this wrong, drivers aged 17-39 were the most in the dark.    Half of the drivers polled did not know that a circle sign indicated one that gave instruction and 48% did not know that the first thing they should do when arriving at the scene of an accident is to turn hazard lights on to warn others that danger is ahead.    Another area where knowledge was lacking was understanding the colour of the (green) reflective markers separating a motorway and slip road ' two-thirds were unable to answer.     IAM RoadSmart director, Neil Greig, said: 'This is truly shocking. The outcome of the survey brings to light some frightening statistics which demonstrates the need to constantly re-fresh on-road knowledge.'

					Millennials in Europe prefer big FMCG brands to local, survey finds
				</title>
				<description>
					 Millennials in Europe prefer big FMCG brands to local: A survey has revealed insight into the shopping habits of millennials in Europe when buying groceries, showing as a preference of large FMCG brands over smaller independent products.    The European Shopper Survey by IRI showed that while overall there is a growing desire for locally made products or national brands, when it comes to the generation Z demographic, big international brands reign supreme.    The poll of 3,300 European consumers from France, Italy, Germany, Greece, The Netherlands, Spain and the UK found that younger shoppers (18-24) are interested in buying groceries and products seen as cutting edge or cool rather than choosing local brands. When it comes to beauty products, 65 percent of younger millennials would opt for well-known international brands, while just 9 percent would choose local.    Six out of ten (61%) younger millennials find products by searching on the web, compared to 43 percent of older people.    It also found that almost a quarter (23%) of 18-24 year olds use blogs and social forums to help inform their shopping decisions compared to just 15 percent of older people.   The research also reveals insight into the way younger people source products, with 66 percent using the internet to research ahead of spending compared to 45 percent of shoppers over the age of 34.    Smartphones are the medium used by many millennials and younger millennials to do their online shopping, with 55 percent of 18-34-year olds checking-out via their mobile compared to just 34 percent of those over 34. Reasons for younger shoppers choosing online shopping over traditional methods includes time-saving (42%), freedom to buy (39%) and a wider choice of goods (37%).    Interestingly, while young millennials are interested in supporting products with environmentally friendly packaging or buying from a manufacturer that respects the environment, they are not as willing as the older generation to pay a bigger price for these benefits.

					Workloads increase for construction industry as Brexit approaches, according to latest survey findings
				</title>
				<description>
					 Workloads increase for construction industry as Brexit approaches according to latest survey findings: A construction industry survey has revealed amid the uncertainties of Brexit and challenging market conditions, workloads for surveyors have continued to grow.     The Q3 RICS UK Construction survey and Infrastructure Market Survey found that 20% more chartered surveyors reported greater workloads than was reported in the previous Q2 report.   This was true for all regions of the UK, although most notably in the Midlands and east England where the rise was the most accelerated. Infrastructure activity for energy, rail and roads also experienced a surge across the UK in Q3 with the exception of Scotland and Northern Ireland.   The survey also revealed that despite increased workloads, three quarters (75%) of surveyors polled report that financial uncertainty and constraints are the most significant barrier to growth -- a figure slightly down from Q2 results where it was 80%.    Looking to the future and the strength of the economy, those polled predict a slowdown in growth although a third (33%) believe growth rather than regression is to come ' down 7 percentage points since Q2 findings where it was 41%.    A new question put to respondents for the Q3 survey asked them how they felt credit conditions have changed over the past three months. More respondents reported a deterioration rather than an improvement and expect circumstances to deteriorate further over the coming year.    Further deconstructing the sectors, private housing and infrastructure workloads have increased the most, and over the coming year, it is expected that railroad and energy divisions in the infrastructure sector will see the largest growth.      Hew Edgar, Head of Policy for RICS said: "Despite challenging market conditions and Brexit looming, overall construction output in the UK is up on the second quarter of the year, and in particular, it's very positive to see that workloads for much needed new homes and infrastructure are increasing."

					Majority of Scottish companies believe climate change poses threat to business

				<description>
					 Majority of Scottish companies believe climate change poses threat to business: A poll of Scottish companies has found that the majority are concerned about the effect climate change will have on their businesses.    The research by WWF Scotland (World Wildlife Fund, Scotland) polled 300 Scottish businesses (150 with over 250 employees and 150 SMEs) and found over half (54%) said climate change posed a risk to their business. For larger companies, 85% said it posed a risk to their business.    For smaller companies, the fear of climate change was less prevalent with 69 % saying they were not concerned, compared to just 13% of larger businesses who said the same.    Government role on Climate Change   The survey also found that 85% of companies in Scotland believed the Scottish Government should set its sights on becoming a global leader on climate change. In terms of the breakdown for smaller and larger businesses, 41 % of SMEs said they felt the Scottish Government should 'definitely' aim to be one of the world's top leaders in tackling climate change, while 33% answered 'Yes, somewhat'. Just a quarter (25%) said 'no' ' the government should not aim to be a global leader on climate change'.     For larger firms, more than nine out of ten polled (94%) said the government should be at the fore of climate change issues, with 61% saying 'definitely' and 35% agreeing to some degree. Just 4% felt the Scottish Government should not seek to be a lead voice in future climate change initiatives.    Dr Sam Gardner, acting director at WWF Scotland said of the findings:   'These findings make it clear climate change is no longer a concern of a few 'green' businesses.  The risks and opportunities are on the agenda in boardrooms across all company sizes, and rightly so.'

					72% of football and gaming fans prefer playing e-sports to the real thing, survey finds
				</title>
				<description>
					 72% of football and gaming fans prefer e-sports to the real thing: It's a much-loved game the world over, but has the time come where real-life football is to be eclipsed by the digital version?    According to a survey by Plusnet, 72% of football and gaming fans said they preferred playing football console games rather than getting outside and kicking a ball around themselves.    Reasons given for having a preference to the video version of the game included being better at it than actual football (32%) and for 31% of respondents, playing as their favourite players was a key factor.   Almost two-thirds of respondents (63%) said they would choose to play a console version of the beautiful game over watching a match on television, with 43% citing being able to play as their favourite players as the main reason.  For a third of respondents (33%) the experience was simply 'more fun'.    Another interesting finding is that over half of those polled (56%) said they consider professional tournaments of popular games such as Fifa and Pro Evolution Soccer 'real sport', and almost six in ten (59%) said they would like to see eSports included in the Olympic Games. Survey respondents also said that they think of professional e-sports players as athletes, with 26% saying they can appreciate both the skill sets of footballers and digital sports players.    Doron Nir, co-founder and CEO of streaming platform StreamElements said:   'If you are a sports organisation and you're not looking seriously into building your eSports presence, you are neglecting what is sure to be a major component of your future business.'

					Survey reveals GPs unlikely to believe patients about alcohol intake
				</title>
				<description>
					 Survey reveals GPs unlikely to believe patients' about alcohol intake: Ever been asked by your GP about your alcohol consumption? Well, it's possible they may double the amount that you tell them -- that's according to recent research by Direct Line life insurance.   The survey of almost 2,000 patients and 191 GPs found that many doctors assume patients hold back on telling them the whole truth when it comes to alcohol consumption.    A similar survey also found a large number of patients were not clued up on what constituted a safe drinking limit or even had much notion of the amount that they regularly consume.    Doctors, according to the survey, only believe 40 percent of patients they see tell them the full story when it comes to questions surrounding alcohol. And when it comes to underestimating how much alcohol they drink, young women are the worst offenders, the survey found.    Responses by GPs found that 21 percent believed their patients displayed signs of high alcohol dependence, and 19 percent a moderate dependence.    Patient responses   When it came to polling patients, GPs suspicions were proven correct in some cases with many admitting to not being wholly honest when asked about alcohol.  Two-thirds polled admitted they had no idea what the weekly limit was and 20 percent said they regularly drink more than the recommended amount.    One in five respondents said they did not keep tabs on how much they were drinking, while 16% felt they weren't alone in misrepresenting how much they drank.  Being judged by their family doctor was a fear of 14% of patients, while a further 14% felt that asking about alcohol consumption was irrelevant.    Professor Helen Stokes-Lampard, Chairman of the Royal College of GPs, said: "Over-consumption of alcohol can have a huge negative effect on our health and wellbeing, so being honest with your GP or other healthcare professional, as well as yourself, about how much you drink is an important first step in understanding how it could be impacting your life."

					Happiness levels have declined for girls and young women, survey finds
				</title>
				<description>
					 Happiness levels have declined for girls and young women: A large survey of girls and young women in the UK has revealed some interesting insight into their thoughts and experiences, with light shed on happiness and mental health.    The Girls Attitudes Survey 2018 for The Girl Guides is carried out every year and in 2018 polled 1903 girls and young women aged between seven and 21.   It found that across all age groups, happiness levels are down since 2009 when 40% said they felt 'very happy'. Today just 25% of girls can say the same.   For girls aged 7-10 there has been a drop in happiness from 57% in 2009 to 43% in 2018. For girls 11 - 16 year-olds, the drop is 20 percentage points from 38% to 18% and for young women aged 17-21 years, the number of respondents saying they were 'very happy' has reduced from 29% in 2009 to just 14% in 2018   Looking at girls aged 11 -21, the survey found that nearly half said they have needed support dealing with their mental health.    When asked 'which of these do you think are the main causes of stress among girls your age', 69% said exam stress, while in second position was 'pressure from social media' (59%). Interestingly, there are no comparisons to 2011 data for social media' which is another reminder of the dramatic impact it has had in just seven years.    Other causes of worry were 'relationships with friends' (53%), 'relationships with a partner' (44%) and 'pressure to look like a celebrity' (44%).   Experiences of depression    When asked if they knew any girls their age who had experienced depression, 71% said yes, while 62% knew someone who had self-harmed. Almost two thirds (64%) were aware of someone they knew having an anxiety disorder, while 52% knew another girl who had experienced an eating disorder. Just over a third (36%) also revealed they knew someone who had viewed pornography.    In terms of happiness, girls were asked which areas of their lives were most affected when they experienced feelings of unhappiness. Half of those polled said it affected 'how confident I feel', relationships with friends and family (41%), health (38%), having fun with friends (36%) and learning (32%).    The comparison between girls and boys is also significant, with 9% of boys by the age of 14 reporting experiencing feelings of depression compared to just under a quarter of girls.

					Over half of Brits willing to share personal data with NHS to improve services, survey finds
				</title>
				<description>
					 Over half of Brits willing to share personal data with NHS to improve services: Ensuring our personal data is protected is of great importance to the majority of Brits, but it is essential to the development of Artificial Intelligence, say the authors of recent KPMG report, How the UK Can with the AI Race.    The report used data from a survey of 2,000 Britons to find out what the public think about AI and data sharing. It found that of all the organisations presented, people in the UK have the most faith in the NHS ' with 56% saying they would be prepared to share their personal data to develop AI if it led to an improvement of the Service.    While over half of respondents would be happy to share their personal data with the NHS,  just 8 percent would be willing to share it with the media, 11 percent with charities and 15 percent, pharmaceutical companies.    The survey found that the majority of respondents  (53 percent) believed that AI would be beneficial to the NHS. Just one in ten (10 percent) thought the impact of sharing data with the NHS would be negative.    When it comes to sharing data with the NHS, the top motivations chosen by respondents in favour, were to improve the quality of diagnosis (72 percent) followed by if it would improve the speed of the service (56 percent) and if the NHS could guarantee data was kept secure (52 percent).   Over half of those polled (54 percent) believe the benefits of sharing data with the NHS outweighs any risk, compared to 9 percent who disagreed with the statement.    The organisations' people were most willing to share personal data with (providing it meant an improved service of capabilities) were as follows:     NHS ' 56%   Banks ' 47%   Police Services ' 33 %   None of these ' 24%   Government ' 22%    Pharmaceutical ' 15 %   Charities ' 11 %   Media companies ' 11 %   Internet Companies ' 8%   Political organisations ' 7 %

					Only 15% of Brits are willing to share data with pharma for AI projects, survey reveals.

				<description>
					 Only 15% of Brits are willing to share data with pharma for AI projects: Personal data and the protection of it continues to dominate the national media, and a survey conducted by KPMG has revealed just where people in the UK are willing to share it.     The poll of 2,000 Brits (which forms part of the How the UK Can Win the AI Race report), revealed more than half (51 percent), were concerned about data privacy and the majority were not receptive to sharing their personal data with various companies in the UK in order to help develop Artificial Intelligence (AI).    Of all organisations listed, the research revealed people are more willing to share data with the NHS, if it led to improvements within the health service.  with 56 percent saying if it led to better services, they would be willing to divulge personal data to improve the health service.    Although people would less willing to share personal data with Pharma industries for AI, with just 15 percent saying they would be happy, there was even less willingness to share with charities (11 percent), media companies (8 percent), internet companies (8 percent), and at the bottom of the table, political organisations (7 percent).    Above Pharma and after the NHS, 47 percent of respondents said they would be happy to share their data for AI projects with banks, the police (33 percent) and the government (22 percent).

					A fifth of grandparents have given up work or reduced hours to help with childcare, survey finds
				</title>
				<description>
					 A fifth of grandparents have given up work or reduced hours to help with childcare: A survey of grandparents has found 21% have given up work or reduced their hours to look after their grandchildren and as a result, 27% have found themselves 'financially unstable'.    The poll of 1,600 users of social network 'Gransnet'  found just over half routinely look after their grandchildren (ages 0 -18) to ease the burden of childcare costs.   As well as facing financial instability from reduced earnings, activities and other expenses also add to the strain, with 57% saying they spend up to £20 per day in term time and 67% spending that during school holidays.    And for many, it's not only one child they take care of each week. Eight out of 10 look after one or two of their grandchildren every week, while 3% take care of four or more, to enable their parents to go to work.    How much childcare?   For most grandparents, the grandkids are dropped off once or twice a week (56%), but 7% say childcare is full-time, looking after them five days a week. Providing childcare is 'exhausting' for 12% of respondents, with some revealing it has had an impact on their physical health.    It has also caused rifts in families, with 8% saying declining requests for childcare has led to family conflict and 5% revealed their relationship with their own children has become 'permanently strained' or even 'entirely estranged' as a result.   As well as helping out with childcare, the poll reveals grandparents are also providing financial support for other things, with 25% saying they contribute to holidays or top up savings accounts for their children. Other areas they help out in include buying toys, games and school uniforms, dinner money and in some cases even help pay the mortgages of their children.

				<description>
					 Many school children taught in overcrowded and inadequate buildings, survey of teachers reveals: Teachers who took part in a NASUWT survey have revealed insight into the condition of the nation's schools. Findings suggest that an increase in pupils on the roll has resulted in more temporary classrooms, overcrowding and inadequate maintenance of school buildings.   Almost half of those polled (48%) said the number of children on the roll had grown significantly in the past five years, with 72 per cent saying this had resulted in larger class sizes at their schools.    The study of 1,250 teachers also revealed that in a bid to cope with the growing number of pupils, 21 per cent have had to utilise other areas of the school for teaching or use Portacabins for classrooms.     Impact on learning   Over half (55%) said that the cramped conditions had an impact on effective learning and it was difficult for teachers and students to safely move around their classrooms.    The research also revealed the state of school buildings - noting corridors that could not accommodate two-way traffic as well as mould, damp and leaks.    Of all teachers polled by the NASUWT teachers' union, only nine per cent felt the quality of their school building was 'very good' with 17 per cent rating it as 'good'. In contrast, 37 per cent admitted conditions were 'poor' and 36 per cent, 'adequate'.    'We have two old mobile classrooms. The heating often does not work and children sit in coats to learn. There are frequent problems with the toilets and drains. Numbers on roll are increasing and we cannot accommodate them,' revealed one of the teachers polled.    Response to survey    In response to the survey, General Secretary to the NASUWT union, Chris Keates said:   'The impact of the government's failure to plan adequately for the predicted increase in the number of school places is clear for all to see.'   The Department for Education said in a statement that the government was committed to investing in the maintenance and improvement, and in some cases rebuilding of schools, with £10bn pledged between 2016 and 2021. The statement also said: 'We have also created 825,000 places since 2010 and despite rising pupil numbers, the average class size has seen little change. In fact, the average primary class size is 27.'

					 UK adults spend eight times longer watching TV than doing exercise: The amount of physical activity undertaken by the average UK adult is dwarfed by alternative pastimes such as watching TV and engaging with tablets and smartphones a survey has found.    Watching TV is a clear favourite choice ' with the average person watching on-demand services such as BBC iPlayer and Netflix for 12 hours every week.   This compares to just 90 minutes of physical activity, according to the survey of over 2000 UK adults conducted by ukactive, a not-for-profit fitness group.    This means British adults spend eight times longer watching TV than they do engaging in a sport or fitness activity.   The figures are even more alarming when it comes to Smartphones and Tablets, with the average adult spending 11 times longer on a device than they do at the gym or other form of exercise. The total number of hours spent looking at a smartphone or tablet is a significant 17 hours per week, with 12 hours being spent on social media.   When it comes to exercise, just over a quarter of respondents said they achieve the recommended weekly target of physical activity ' 2.5 hours a week.  But for 14 percent, exercise is never undertaken, while 13 percent say they manage less than half an hour a week. This means that 27 percent of UK adults are actually considered 'inactive'.    Interestingly, when respondents have experienced stress, almost half (49 percent) say they turn to exercise, compared to 43 percent who say they turn to snacks and 41 percent who watch TV or look at their smartphone.    Respondents who use exercise as a way of relieving stress said they turn to it to clear their head (71 percent), to help them relax (55 percent) and because they enjoy being in the open air (50 percent).

					Survey finds 35% of logistic companies have not prepared for Brexit

				<description>
					 Survey finds 35% of logistic companies have not prepared for Brexit: A survey of UK and German multi-national manufacturing companies has revealed that 35% of companies have not prepared for Brexit because so much is unknown.    Just under half (46%) think that they have enough time to prepare for Brexit, however, in order to prepare their supply chains, they need more clarity on what is required of them.    One in five (18%) believe they will not have time to get everything in order before for the deadline.   The survey by Carousel Logistics - a European logistics specialist -  forms part of the company's Brexit white paper. The research also revealed that half (50%) of the senior logistics and supply chain bosses polled feel they are not fully in the know about what is required ahead of EU divorce.    With political uncertainty around the details of Brexit, Carousel asked respondents about their feelings on being ready for a 'no deal' Brexit. Almost 8 in 10 (79%) said while they have been preparing for the changes, they are 'nowhere near ready'. On the other side, 21% admit they don't feel able to prepare as they would like to as they feel unsure about the specifics.    In January of this year, a similar survey by Carousel found that 'speed of delivery' ranked fifth in terms of what was most important for logistic companies post Brexit. In the new research asking the same questions conducted over the summer, speed of delivery is now the number one priority, followed by 'ease of movement' and 'tariff charges'.   Other findings include 38% of UK companies are planning to look towards improved technology solutions post Brexit, compared to 18% of German businesses. Brexit has also prompted almost a third of UK companies to be 'more innovative with solutions'.    See full details of the research here

					Survey of support staff reveals the effect of cutbacks in UK schools

					 Survey of support staff reveals the effect of cutbacks in UK schools: A survey of school support staff has revealed the effects of cuts, stress and restructuring in UK schools.    According to the latest research by public service union, UNISON, cuts to funding are having 'a devastating effect' on workloads and morale.    The survey, which informed the union's Lessons in Austerity report, polled 12,120 support staff including teaching assistants, office personnel, technicians and caterers and found almost nine in ten said they could see the effects that cuts were having in their schools.    Looking back over the past five years, over four out of five of those polled (83 percent) said they had experienced stress or felt overwhelmed by increased workloads. For one in five (20 percent), this has resulted in them having to take time off from work as a result.    When it came to demands being made of them and workloads, more than 70 percent revealed they were undertaking tasks that should be carried out by a more senior staff member, and just over a third (35 percent) said they had received no additional training to perform certain additional duties.    Restructuring and the effects of it were also highlighted by the survey with 76 percent saying their school had been through the process, or that it was in the pipeline. For 38 percent of respondents, there had been more than one restructure in the last five years.    Jon Richards, the head of education for UNISON said: 'School support staff who haven't already lost their jobs are buckling under intolerable workloads and mounting stress levels.   'They play a vital role in keeping children safe and schools running smoothly, they shouldn't be seen as surplus to requirements when money is tight.'

					Government survey reveals barriers to arts engagement
				</title>
				<description>
					 Government survey reveals barriers to arts engagement: A large-scale survey looking at the arts, heritage, museums and libraries as well as some other areas including digital engagement, has revealed the barriers preventing people from becoming more engaged with the arts.    The Taking Part Survey for the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) has been polling the general public since 2005 and offers a reliable insight into the nation's arts engagement.    The survey found that 79% had engaged in cultural activities in the last 12 months (2017/18); 73% had visited a heritage site and half had visited a museum or gallery, with just a third saying they had used a public library service (33%).    The survey reveals a steady decline in the use of public libraries since the data first began in 2005/6 where just under half (48%) of those polled used the service.    Lack of interest and lack of time were the main barriers to participation last year, with 31% saying they had not attended an arts event and 47% saying they had not experienced any cultural activity in the last 12 months.    In terms of attendance, 37% said the reason why they did not engage with any cultural activities was that it does not interest them, while 33% admitted they don't have the time.    Other reasons given for not engaging were the cost, knowing what was on offer, the ease/difficulty of getting a place and not having someone to go with.    For 23% of the people who said they had not engaged with the arts, the reason was due to a disability. However, engagement among people with a disability overall was higher than ever with 76% saying they had attended an event or cultural activity in the 2017/18.

					Just 15% of Brits think Government has managed immigration 'competently and fairly', survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 Just 15% of Brits think the Government has managed immigration 'competently and fairly': A major survey conducted over the last two years has found that just 15 percent feel the Government has handled immigration in a competent and fair manner.    The National Conversation on Immigration report, which polled almost 20,000 people at meetings around the UK is the largest public consultation on immigration to date, also found that only 17 percent trust the government to tell the truth when it comes to immigration.    The research carried out by think tank British Future in collaboration with HOPE not Hate, an anti-racism charity also found some interesting insight into the public perception of immigration, which differed from some of the polarised debates online.   Majority of people are 'balancers'   Despite reservations about ministers' ability to manage immigration, the report found people had a more balanced outlook on immigration than the view often presented in the media. The report dubs these people 'balancers' and says the majority of those who responded on the citizen's panel can be described as such, seeing both the 'pressures and gains of immigration.'     Findings also revealed 65 percent of respondents believed migrants were valuable to the UK bringing essential skills that could benefit the economy, while 59 percent said having a diverse society was good for British culture.   Although overall, the people of the UK were more positive about immigration than not ' four in ten felt immigration had undermined British culture.    The authored of the report are calling for a 'national conversation' in an official capacity about immigration to give the public an opportunity to speak about any concerns they have.    Jill Rutter, one of the report authors, and director of strategy for think tank British Future said: 'The lack of trust we found in the Government to manage immigration is quite shocking.    'People want to have their voices heard on the choices we make and to hold their leaders to account on their promises."   Review the full report: nationalconversation.uk

					Children prefer being in banded classes rather than mixed, according to survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Children prefer being in banded classes according to survey: Research by YouGov has found that children prefer being taught in classes with children of a similar ability, rather than mixed-ability lessons.    When asked about how they preferred to be taught, The poll of 586 UK school children aged between six and 15 revealed 39 % liked 'being in a class where 'everyone is about as good as me'  while 30% said they liked having a 'mix of how good everyone is' at a subject. Twenty-two per cent did not have a preference, while 10% answered 'don't know'.    When it comes to preferring mixed ability classes to 'sets', almost a third of girls polled (34%) said they preferred this way of teaching, compared to a quarter of boys (25%). However, the same amount (girls and boys) said they preferred banded lessons (39%). A higher proportion of boys said they 'do not have a preference' (26% compared to just 18% of girls).   What makes a good teacher?    The survey also revealed what children thought made a 'good teacher' with 27% saying 'kindness' was the top attribute, followed by 'listening' (15%) and 'fun' (13%). Three percent answered 'doesn't shout' while for 4 percent, being strict was the mark of a good teacher.    Homework over the summer?   When it came to homework over the summer, 29 percent had been given tasks to complete at home, while over two thirds (69%) hadn't had any set over the six-week break.

					Fear caused by food allergies stopping young people from eating out, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 Fear caused by food allergies stopping young people from eating out: Young people suffering from food allergies avoid eating out because of 'fear' a survey has found.   The research, a collaboration between the Food Standards Agency(FSA) and allergy UK and its Anaphylaxis Campaign found 64 per cent of people aged 16-24 had avoided eating out in the past six months. For those with food intolerances, the figures were slightly lower but still a significant 53 percent.   For those that do eat out, 59 percent said that they usually frequent the same restaurants or if they did try a new place they would research the menu beforehand (55 percent). In addition, nine percent of respondents made contact with a venue ahead of their visit to discuss menu options.    The research, which polled 2,599 young people, of which half (49 per cent) had a food allergy, 33 per cent an intolerance and 18% both, found 67% knew the legal requirement for restaurants and cafes to provide information on the top 14 allergens. However, despite this, only 14% felt 'extremely confident' asking for information. The same amount felt 'not confident at all'. Fifty-three per cent agreed they felt 'extremely' or 'very' confident that food providers give them the correct allergen information.    When it comes to ordering takeaways or food for delivery online, 88% said they had no support, while 51 percent said they always check allergen info before they order and 39% always plump for the same menu choice because they know it is safe for them to eat.

					Which! survey reveals best to worst supermarkets for recyclable packaging

				<description>
					 Which! survey reveals best to worst supermarkets for recyclable packaging: While no stranger to topping lists for offering good value, budget supermarket, Lidl has found itself bottom of the table for its use of unrecyclable plastic packaging - while Morrisons came out on top.     The survey, by consumer group, Which! looked at how much plastic is used by leading supermarkets for its own brand packaging and how much of that can be recycled.    At a time where many leading retailers are looking at ways they can reduce their plastic footprint such as banning plastic drinking straws, the survey found that 29% of packaging used by supermarkets overall is not recyclable or difficult to recycle.    For the study, Which! went shopping for 27 own-brand products from each of the 10 leading supermarkets. The packaging from those 27 items was then weighed and the results revealed that between 71% and 81% of the packaging in terms of its weight could be recycled.    Morrisons topped the charts with 81% of its packaging widely recyclable and just 12% using non-recyclable materials. Asda was a close second, with 79% of their packing materials widely recyclable and 14% non- recyclable, followed by MS (78% widely recyclable and 14% non-recyclable) and Tesco (77% widely recyclable and 18% non-recyclable).    At the other end of the table, Lidl came bottom with 71% widely recycled and 22% non-recyclable materials, followed by Iceland (73% and 22%) and Ocado (74% and 18%).   In response to the findings, Lidl said the Which! survey does not represent the store's full product range with only a 'small sample' [of 27 products] used.    A spokesman for the supermarket said:    'We are in the process of conducting a comprehensive review of our entire packaging footprint, and estimate that the vast majority of our packaging is widely recyclable under the industry standard OPRL (On Pack Recycling Labelling) scheme.'

					Survey finds one in 20 UK adults have not eaten green veg in a month
				</title>
				<description>
					 Survey finds one in 20 UK adults have not eaten green veg in a month: We may tell our children to eat their greens, but according to a recent poll, one in 20 people have not eaten green vegetables for a month or even longer.   The survey conducted by Organic UK polled 1,500 adults and found 4% had not let peas, broccoli or other green vegetable pass their lips in a month, while 68% said it had been more than a week.    Remaining at the bottom of the chart, the least popular green veggie was the sprout. The festival stalwart came in with 15% of the vote, while celery was a close second (13%) followed by the aubergine (10%).    Looking into the nation's health, the poll also revealed Brits are also neglecting to have their 5-a-day recommended portions of fruit and vegetables.   In terms of trying veggies, 53% said they had never tried okra, while other vegetables shunned are artichoke (37%), celeriac (36%), butternut squash (20%), kale (19%) aubergine (18%) and avocado (15%).    How healthy are we?   When it comes to being healthy, only a third of respondents (37%) said they had a healthy diet, while 17% admitted they felt guilty about theirs. In addition, 16% said they feel 'unhealthy' for much of the time and 13% said the state of their diet caused them unhappiness. The poll also revealed 6% admitted their diet was poor all of the time.      When it comes to eating fresh produce, many respondents revealed their diet was often lacking, with the average adult not having eaten a meal with the majority of its items constituting fresh fruit and veg for four days. Carbs (potatoes, pasta and chips) were the main dinner items making up 35% of our meals.

					Sexual health survey finds pupils in Scotland want more information in schools
				</title>
				<description>
					 Sexual health survey finds pupils in Scotland want more sex-ed in schools: A survey asking Scottish students about the experiences of their sexual health education in school has revealed more education would be beneficial in some areas.    The survey, carried out by HIV Scotland polled 2,906 students and was, according to Nathan Sparling (head of policy and campaigning), 'the largest of its kind'.   The survey sought to gauge the opinions of school children on the sexual health education they have received at school, and found that more than half had not even taken part in sexual health lessons '  despite the majority of Scottish schools providing them. It also found 16 percent of students had sexual health education less than a few times in an academic year.    When it came to where they can go for sexual health advice and services, 41 percent said they did not know where to go.    The survey also revealed confusion about HIV and incorrect information about how it can be transmitted, with half the students questioned saying they would like more information. Just under a third (35 percent) did not know how they could minimise the risk of contracting HIV, with 45 percent incorrectly believing it can be transmitted through spitting, through contact with toilet seats (34 percent), and kissing (26 percent).    Sparling said of the survey: ' It shows that students in Scotland need and want better sexual health education, that informs them about the modern-day realities of HIV and how to prevent it.'

				</title>
				<description>
					 Survey reveals the changing consciousness of consumers, with 44% believing they will no longer use supermarket by 2030: A nationwide survey into the future shopping habits of British adults has revealed a shift in the way consumers expect to shop.    The survey of 2041 adults commissioned by ThoughtWorks (conducted by YouGov) shows respondents are displaying increasing consideration for the environment, their health, reducing waste and even the effect consumer choices have on local businesses. ThoughtWorks asked respondents to consider which issues would determine the way they bought food by the year 2030.   And the results....   When considering the current drive against packaging, it is perhaps unsurprising that the top issue was recycling, with 68% saying it would be more important than anything else when it comes to food shopping.   Also high on the list (in third position) was 'waste', with just under half (48 percent) revealing they believe it will be a top priority in 2030.   The origin of food and how far it has to travel to get to our tables and supermarkets was also a top priority, with 36 percent saying there would be a greater emphasis on buying local in order to support community businesses. Just under a third (32 percent) said they expect people to require more information ahead of buying goods to verify they had been ethically, and sustainably sourced.    Nutritional value   How good for us a food source is will also shape our future purchasing choices, with 38% saying that nutritional value will influence what they put on their shopping list. Thirty-percent believe in the future there will be more importance placed on the value of food from a health and well-being perspective.    The research also suggests that in 2030, supermarkets may cease to exist in their current form, with 44 percent of consumers believing they will no longer use one.     However, despite the many considerations for consumers in the future, 57 percent said that the cost of a product will be the most important. when they go shopping.        Factors that  adults believe will most important in their food-buying decisions in 2030   bull; Reducing packaging and using more recyclable materials - 62% bull; The price of food - 57% bull; Food waste (i.e. the amount of food that gets thrown away) - 48% bull; Tackling obesity - 41% bull; Where food comes from (e.g. where it is grown, fished, reared etc.) - 36% bull; A greater focus on fresh food - 36% bull; Supporting local farmers/ producers - 34% bull; That the food is ethically sourced/ has an ethical supply chain - 32% bull; Scarcity of certain foods - 32% bull; The convenience - 31% bull; Greater interest in food as an intrinsic part of health and wellbeing - 30% bull; The amount of energy used in food production - 24% bull; Shopping for meals not just ingredients - 15% bull; People not eating meat - 14% bull; People no longer having a family meal together - 14%

					Most reputable retailers revealed in UK consumer survey

				<description>
					 Most reputable retailers revealed in UK consumer survey: A large-scale survey has been published revealing the 'most reputable' retailers according to consumers.   Topping the chart of the 50 nominated retailers and significantly improving its score from last year, was online giant Amazon, which fared best in areas including Products and Sevice, Performance, Leadership and Innovation.    The annual survey by the Reputation Institute polled 5,175 people found Boots and John Lewis in second and third places respectively. Other top ten companies include Co-op (4th), Ikea (5th) and Debenhams (6th) and Sotheby's (7th)   Not faring as well in the 2018 UK Retail RepTrak was Sports Direct with consumers feedback condemning the company to the bottom of the table as 'least reputable' retailer, performing worst in Leadership, Governance, Citizenship and Leadership subcategories.    Stephen Hahn-Griffiths, of the Reputation Institute, said: 'Amazon's combination of selection, value, personalisation, and no hassle customer service is a winning formula. Amazon has a loyal following with more than 100 million Amazon Prime subscribers 'Prime Day' sales have become a major retail event.'   He did, however, add that the company's current excellent reputation could be at future risk if criticisms of the conditions for workers in distribution warehouses as well as the proposed 'Amazon Tax' continue to grow.    Top 10 Companies in the 2018 UK Retail RepTrak:   1. Amazon 2. Boots 3. John Lewis 4. Co-op 5. Ikea 6. Debenhams 7. Sotheby's 8. Waitrose 9. Tiffany and Co 10. eBay

					Retail sales growth slows as the hot weather cools, figures show
				</title>
				<description>
					 Retail sales growth slows as the hot weather cools: After a period of spending during the summer heatwave, UK consumers have started to hold back according to the latest figures from KPMG.   The British Retail Consortium - KPMG sales monitor (RSM) reveals total sales were a marginal 1.3% higher than in August last year, compared with an annual growth rate of 1.6% in July and 2.4% in August 2017 - despite spending on back-to-school goods and grocery sales.    Back-to-school   Back-to-school inspired spending on kids' clothes and computers although sales of stationery, adult clothes and footwear were not as lucrative.   Don Williams, a retail partner at KPMG said that spending in retail overall 'held up in August' but it was 'only just'.    The latest BRC report shows the trend of weak retail growth continuing and suggests limited disposable income has prevented some consumers from purchasing goods beyond grocery items.    Joanne Denny-Finch, Chief Executive of IGD said that as the hot weather abated in August, food and drink sales slowed, adding that time will tell whether the dip in spending was just a 'blip' or whether it is a result of consumers feeling the 'squeeze on real incomes'.    'From our conversations with shoppers we don't see next year's Brexit transition influencing food shopping behaviours yet,' she said.    'Six in ten shoppers say they focus more on day-to-day living rather than thinking about the future.'   Away from in-store purchasing, online non-food sales grew in August by 7.5%.

					69% of Scottish people are 'satisfied' with public transport, reveals survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 69% of Scottish people are 'satisfied' with public transport: A survey which among other things looked at the travel habits and transport choices of people in Scotland has revealed two-thirds feel 'satisfied' with the service they receive on public transport ' a decrease from 72% the previous year.   The annual Scottish Household Survey polled 9,810 adults and found that public transport was used for 11% of journeys, while the majority of travel was still by car. Sixty-five percent of journeys were made by car or van (breaking down to 52% as the driver and 13% as a passenger). Second to travelling by car was walking, with 21% of journeys made on foot, while cycling made up just 1.5% of journeys made in 2017.   Public transport   The survey also revealed the total number of passengers travelling by ScotRail trains in 2017-18 was 98 million ' up 4 million from the previous years with 94 million recorded.    People earning higher wages were also found to travel by train more, with 42% of those who had travelled by train in the past month bringing in a salary in excess of £40,000 per year. For those earning less than £10,000, just 23% made a journey by train in the last 28 days.    When it comes to taking the bus, younger passengers were more usual, with two thirds (68%) of 16 to 19-year-olds polled said they had made a journey by bus in the last month. The figures drop to just over half of those in their 70s (53%) and 43% of Scottish people in their 80s.    The survey also revealed that travel by electric car is sounding a more attractive proposition to Scottish people with 41% saying they would consider buying an electric model in the future ' an increase of 5% on last year's survey.

					Letting agents refusing accommodation to benefits recipients, reveals report
				</title>
				<description>
					 Letting agents refusing accommodation to benefits recipients, reveals report: The National Housing Federation and homeless charity, Shelter, have joined together for a campaign to stop letting agents discriminate against 'DSS' or housing benefit claimants.   It is in response to a mystery-shopper style investigation into 149 branches of letting agents in England, which they said found one in ten declined to let out properties to tenants who were in receipt of housing benefit.   The research   Researchers posed as prospective tenants and found that just under half (48%) of the branches called or visited said they had no suitable properties ' or that landlords were unwilling to accommodate them.    According to Shelter's investigation, eight out of 25 Haarts branches turned the undercover researchers away, while Bridgefords and Dextors each turned away two out of 25 due to individual branch policies. Fox and Sons turned away housing benefits claimants in 2 out of 24 branches and Your Move, 1 out of 25.    The Guardian reports that around 1.6 million people rely on housing benefit to help afford private rental costs.   Polly Neate, chief executive of Shelter, said: "This ugly undercurrent of discrimination is wreaking havoc on hundreds of thousands of people's lives. 'No DSS' is an outdated and outrageous example of blatant prejudice."   In response to the research, Haarts (the UK's largest independent letting agency and estate agent), said: ' We do regularly arrange tenancies for those claiming housing benefits and currently have 112 tenancies where this is the case. This research has brought to light that some of our branches are misinformed and we are working to ensure that this policy is being followed across our network. We are sorry for any occasion where this has not been the case."   Following the national press coverage, the National Approved Lettings Scheme (NALS) has questioned the campaign by the NHF and Shelter.       NALS chief executive Isobel Thomson said: 'Shouldn't we be working together to come up with solutions which could solve the ills of the sector to ensure that no vulnerable tenants are left behind rather than castigating one section of it"

					Survey of parents calls into question effectiveness of PFAS school uniform coatings
				</title>
				<description>
					 Survey of parents calls into question the effectiveness of PFAS school uniform coatings: When shopping for school uniforms, the promise of a longer-lasting product or stain-resistant fabrics is incredibly attractive to busy parents. However, a survey by Scottish environmental charity, Fidra, suggests products with polyfluorinated alkyl substances (PFAS) are not quite as revolutionary as they promise, with parents having to wash them more often and replace sooner than uniforms that had not been treated.

					Survey finds majority of older people want single storey properties
				</title>
				<description>
					 Survey finds the majority of older people want single storey properties: A survey has shown that over half of people aged 65 and over would consider moving to a bungalow, but the lack of properties available in the UK means that they are not a viable housing option for many.    The poll by retirement builder McCarthy and Stone found 54% (in the 65+ bracket) would consider moving to a single-story space in their retirement ' that is equal to 6.6 million people. And almost two thirds (65%) believe that developers should build bungalow style homes specifically for older people.    Supply and demand   The problem is that of all the housing types currently built by developers ' bungalows are not high on the list. Thirty-two years ago, in 1986, the number of bungalows being built was 26,000 ' a figure that has plummeted to just 2,6000 in 2017.   As well as not building enough new bungalows, developers often buy bungalows so they can build more profitable double or multi-storey dwellings on the land they occupy.   Despite plans to build a series of bungalows across the UK, McCarthy  Stone is calling for local housing plans to contain more 'bungalow-only' sites and for legislation to help provide people with a range of different retirement options.    Chief executive of McCarthy  Stone, Clive Fenton, said: 'There is an urgent need to build more suitable housing to meet the different needs of those in retirement, and bungalows must play a key role. Although they were a dying breed, bungalows are making a comeback and are hot property.'

					84% of renters are 'satisfied' with their accommodation, survey finds
				</title>
				<description>
					 84% of renters are 'satisfied' with their accommodation: A survey using data from 13,000 households has found the majority of private renters (84%) are 'satisfied' with the properties they rent, and 72 percent are satisfied with how their landlord maintains the property and carries out repairs.   In contrast, the survey shows less than a fifth (17%) are 'dissatisfied or very dissatisfied with their landlord's service.    The English Housing Survey ' which is in its 50th year ' monitors the conditions of housing and circumstances of people, as well as the energy efficiency of homes across England.    The survey once again shows the shift from home ownership. Where twenty years ago, just 16% of people aged 35 -44 were living in privately rented accommodation, today almost one in four (24%) rent their homes.    Of the private renters polled.  60% expect to buy a home of their own at some point in the future compared to 30% who were in social rentals.    The survey noted a great reduction in the number of damp properties and fewer properties were recorded as being in a state of disrepair. In terms of energy efficiency, privately rented homes also saw an increase in status as did the number of homes classified 'non-decent' with numbers plummeting from 47% in 2006 to a significantly improved 27% in 2016.    In terms of what renters spend on their property, the survey found private renters spend more of their household income on housing costs (34%) than those in social rentals (28%)   'It shows once again that the vast majority of private sector landlords do a good job and look after their properties and tenants properly,' said David Smith, policy director for the Residential Landlords Association.

					Car dealer survey reveals confusion over WLTP
				</title>
				<description>
					 Car dealer survey reveals confusion over WLTP: A survey of car dealers has revealed that many are confused by the soon-to-be-implemented Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure, knowing little about the test, which comes into play on 1 September 2018.   The findings of the monthly research by Manheim reveals over a third (35%) of car dealers are not aware of the WLTP emissions test cycle being brought in to replace the 'outdated' NEDC test.    The survey, which usually gets around 240 responses from independent car dealers found that 61 percent are not clear on the timeframe for rolling out WLTP or what the new protocol means for new cars after the deadline.    It also shed light on the impact the new testing method is having at dealerships, with 47 percent saying the new test is affecting how many news cars are available to them. That said, there is an equal number who say they have not experienced any supply shortages as a result of the new testing criteria.    In terms of how satisfied dealers are with receiving information about WLTP from their car franchise, over half said they were happy (55%) while a large number (45%) felt they had not been given enough information.    Tactical registrations    The survey also revealed that 86% of dealers polled think that before the September 1 deadline there will be 'tactical' registrations of WLTP-affected cars.    Philip Nothard, director of external relations at Manheim said:    "The response to these questions is startling. With less than six weeks to go until the implementation of WLTP, that a third of dealers say they are unaware of WLTP should be of grave concern to the government and manufacturers."

					Electric Dreams: over half young people in UK would like an electric vehicle, survey finds
				</title>
				<description>
					 Electric Dreams: over half young people in UK would like an electric vehicle: Young people in the UK are more open to the idea of electric cars than older generations - with over half surveyed saying they would like to own one.    The survey by the AA surveyed 10,293 drivers to gauge opinions and looked at some of the perceptions surrounding electric vehicles.   The motoring group found 85% of respondents had concerns that there are not enough charging points for Electric Vehicles, while just over three quarters (76%) believe a single charge of an EV won't take them a great enough distance.    Three quarters (76%) also think that EVs are expensive compared to petrol and diesel cars, while 67% believe there isn't enough choice in cars available and the same percentage think they take too long to charge. The AA says that many of these perceptions are not accurate and there needs to be more done to convince the public of the benefits of electric cars.    Age a factor...   Age was also a factor in how people felt about owning an electric vehicle. Overall, a third of respondents said target would like to own an electric model, with the older generations being the least likely to want one.   Half of 25-34 year-olds said they'd like to own an EV, compared to 40% of 35-44 year-olds, 33% of 45-54 year-olds and 29% of respondents aged 55-64. This drops to just a quarter for the over 65s.    AA President, Edmund King, said: 'The EV revolution hasn't perhaps taken off as quickly as we would have liked but now we have a firm commitment to the charging infrastructure, as well as, future-proofing houses, offices and strategic roads."

					Stress affecting 78% of construction workers in the Midlands, survey finds
				</title>
				<description>
					 Stress is affecting 78% of construction workers in the Midlands: A survey has found that a large proportion of workers in the construction industry in the Midlands are experiencing high stress levels, yet half of them feel unable to speak to their boss about how they are feeling.   The study, carried out by Aquarius Life found that despite feeling pressure or stress, 75% of workers say they deliberately cover up how they are feeling.  It also found that 2% of respondents were drinking alcohol or taking drugs to help them through times of stress or pressure. According to the survey results, 28% of construction workers polled suspect a colleague has been under the influence of drugs or alcohol while at work.    The revelations also show that 52% of respondents, despite feeling they are struggling at work, are reluctant to share their status with their manager, because they want to keep their lives away from work, private.    Help available?    Seventy-six percent of workers polled said they did not know if there was any help they could access to help alleviate feelings of pressure, stress or personal issues, with 80% saying they did not feel as though they were supported in the workplace.    Annette Fleming, CEO of Aquarius, said: 'The results of our latest research are clear ' at times, most of us can find it hard to deal with the day-to-day pressures of balancing our work and personal lives. In fact, 78% of construction employees in the Midlands confirm they experience stress that they struggle to cope with. That's why we believe it's time for employers to act'.

					Construction companies feeling the impact of Brexit up 9%, according to survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 Construction companies feeling the impact of Brexit up 9%: A survey into the impact Brexit is having on the construction industry has revealed that the number of firms feeling affected by the decision to leave the EU has risen by 9% since last year.    The research, conducted by the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) revealed one in three construction companies polled are feeling the impact of Brexit, however, fewer than a third have done anything about it yet, or plan to do so in the months before the EU departure.    The study polled 400 employers, 50 recruitment agencies and 244 migrant workers and also found that over half of employers expect to face challenges recruiting skilled workers in the next couple of years. Only 4 percent of those surveyed felt recruitment would become easier.   Of those employers who have made or are making contingency plans for Brexit, only 8 percent plan to increase training, with most saying their main concern was retaining their existing workers. And according to the survey results, employers have a good chance of doing so, with 61% of migrant workers polled saying they expect to work in the UK until retirement.    Questioned about their reasons for recruiting workers not from the UK, 46 percent said it was due to a shortage of skilled staff in the UK, while 43% said the availability of UK workers was a problem.    When it comes to dependence on non-UK workers, the majority (71%) said they were not reliant on employees from overseas. Only a small number (5%) said they were 'very' dependent, while 9% said they were 'quite' dependent 16%, 'not very'.   Steven Radley, Director of Policy for CITB said:   As Brexit approaches, construction employers expect recruitment of skilled staff to become more difficult. However, few employers are making firm plans to address this. Rather their main aim is the retention of their existing migrant employees.'

					Survey reveals one in three construction workers fail to check asbestos registers

				<description>
					 Survey reveals one in three construction workers fail to check asbestos registers: The dangers of asbestos exposure are now well understood, however, a survey by Opinium has revealed a worrying number of construction workers fail to check the asbestos register at sites they are due to start work at before jobs get underway.   Thirty-two percent of the 500 workers polled said they have never checked the register before starting a job, with half of these having no knowledge at all about asbestos registers.   In terms of what to do if they came across asbestos at a site they were working at, 18% said they would not be sure of what they should do.    The survey also revealed that almost 1 in 6 respondents (59 percent) were well versed in the dangers posed by asbestos and 15 percent revealed they had the message reiterated regularly during staff training sessions.    Some workers (23 percent) also shared that they believed they had been exposed to asbestos.    The survey was carried out as part of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health's (IOSH) No Time to Lose campaign.    Exposure to asbestos fibres can cause cancers including the deadliest form, mesothelioma, and claim the lives of an estimated 5,000 people in the UK each year.    Craig Foyle, the president of the IOSH said:    'We are calling on everyone, including employers, to do the right thing; to protect the people who work for them.'

					Seven out of 10 consumers happy to use a 'lawbot' instead of a lawyer, survey finds
				</title>
				<description>
					 Seven out of 10 consumers happy to use a 'lawbot' instead of a lawyer: If you're in need of a legal service but the cost of hiring a lawyer is too high, would you consider a digital 'lawbot' instead?   A survey of 1000 UK consumers and 500 law firms found that 70% of consumers would happily choose an automated online 'lawbot' instead of a real-life lawyer. Their reasons for trading a human for technology? It's cheaper, faster and more straightforward.    Almost 2 in 10 polled (10 percent) said using a lawbot was a more convenient way to handle their legal affairs, while 56 percent admitted they would be willing to pay a higher price to ensure their needs were met on a faster timescale.    The new study by Olive Communications, a managed cloud comms provider, found that of all the legal services consumers would like to have lawbot-style access to, insurance claims were top, with 46 percent saying they would use such a service. Other services mentioned were financial disputes (23 percent) tax appeals (23 percent), conveyancing (19 percent), divorce application (14 percent) and unfair dismissal claims (11 percent).   Consumers want better digital services   The research also looked at digital services offered by law firms and found that 34 percent of consumers would like better digital services from law firms such as Instant Messenger or video conferencing to make communication more fluid and save time. Of the respondents polled, 66 percent said they currently have no access to such services.    The law firms surveyed also had concerns about lagging behind when it comes to digital technologies, with 66 percent concerned that client response times, productivity and chargeable time may suffer if they fail to offer the latest digital services.    The research also revealed that 71 percent of larger law firms were concerned about falling behind in terms of their digital offering, while SMEs were slightly less concerned at 61 percent. Just under half (49 percent) of the law firms polled were concerned about falling behind the competition.

					42% of finance workers put off pursuing roles due to negative first impressions, according to survey
				</title>
				<description>
					 42% of finance workers put off pursuing roles due to negative first impressions: Nearly half of survey respondents working in finance industries said they have been dissuaded from pursuing a new position after an organisation has failed to make a good impression.   The What Workers Want survey by Hayes Accounting found that first impressions really do count for a lot when it comes to a candidate choosing whether or not to pursue a role. The study polled 14,600 employees across a number of sectors - with over 2,000 of the responses returned coming from people working in finance.    So, what was it that put them off?   The survey found that seeing the environment they would have to work each day was the reason two-thirds of prospective finance employees were deterred, while 46 percent said it was the interview process that had made them have second thoughts. Unwelcoming staff were another reason for candidates feeling put off, with 38 percent saying it was enough to make them have a rethink.    Over eight in 10 finance professionals said that they have experienced a negative interview process citing reasons such as poor communication and ill-prepared interviewers.     Other research findings...   When it comes to staying in a role, 43 percent admitted to leaving a company because it did not meet up to their expectations, with reasons given including not receiving training they were expecting, management being different to what they had been led to believe it would be and the job not being true to what was advertised.    The study also showed that respondents do not like to be kept waiting to hear if they have been successful after submitting an application, with almost two thirds (62 percent) saying they would wait no longer than a week before looking for other opportunities. When it comes to being offered a role, 61 percent said they will only wait between one and three days before looking elsewhere.

					Plastic manufacturers struggling to recruit workers
				</title>
				<description>
					 Plastic makers struggling to recruit workers: Young people appear to be turning away from employment opportunities at plastic companies, according to a survey of 500 plastic makers.   Plastic manufacturers are finding it difficult to recruit employees, particularly young people moving into entry-level positions, reports the Telegraph.  More than half of those polled said they are finding it difficult to find workers, with 5% saying they are no longer trying to recruit for positions at all.    Following the poll, Director of the British Plastics Foundation, Philip Law, said that government policy on plastics is being communicated in such a way that it is 'putting young people off' working in the UK's third-largest manufacturing sector, which could have serious implications for other industries.   He said: 'Policy on plastic should not put these jobs at risk or put young people off going into a sector that is critical to so many parts of our economy now and in the future.'   In April this year, the Government outlined plans to ban certain single-use plastic items including straws, ear-buds and drink stirrers, which would follow a similar ban on plastic microbeads and the introduction of a 5p charge on single-use carrier bags.    Prime Minister, Theresa May revealed ahead of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting back in May, that the Government has set aside £61.4m to tackle the issue of plastic pollution.    Speaking of his fears for the future of the UK plastic industry, Mr Law said that further curbs on the industry would be 'utterly self-defeating in the long run'.   'Irrespective of the impact on jobs and manufacturing, it would also stymie investment in new technology to make plastic even more recyclable than it is now,' he said.

					Traditional sweeteners preferred by consumers, survey finds
				</title>
				<description>
					 Traditional sweeteners preferred by consumers: An online survey into the use of sweetening products has revealed the majority of people prefer natural sweeteners rather than artificial alternatives.      The poll of 720 US consumers also found that 71 percent pay close attention to food labels when undertaking their shopping, while  55 percent would like reduced-sugar products to taste the same as their favourite full-sugar food and drink items.   Conducted by Kerry, The Taste  Nutrition Co, the survey found consumers' 'awareness' and 'preference' of certain sweeteners differed considerably.     In terms of awareness of sweetening products, honey and sugar were the most recognised, with 82 percent  saying they had knowledge of it, followed by maple syrup (71percent), molasses (66 percent), high-fructose corn syrup (63 percent), stevia (58 percent), agave (50 percent) and aspartame (46 percent).    When it came to what consumers 'preferred', 64 percent said honey, with 59 percent listing sugar, followed by maple syrup (31 percent), stevia (22 percent), agave (13 percent), molasses (9 percent), high-fructose corn syrup (7 percent) and aspartame (6 percent)   There was confusion among respondents as to whether stevia is natural or artificially-produced, however, the figures show it was the fourth most preferred sweetener.    The initial findings were presented in Chicago during IFT18 ' The Institute of Food Technologists annual meeting in July, where Kerry also unveiled its TasteSense Sweet system designed to help bake products using less sugar, but without compromising the taste.    Although the survey asked respondents about 17 different sweeteners, only the results for the top eight have been published, with more to be released at a later date in 2018.

					The great bottle swap: over half of Londoners plan to use reusable flasks instead of single-use plastic, survey finds
				</title>
				<description>
					 Over half of Londoners plan to use reusable flasks instead of single-use plastic: The quest to reduce plastic consumption continues to gain momentum, with more than half of London dwellers saying they plan to boycott single-use bottles in favour of reusable containers, according to a recent survey.    The findings came to light in a survey on behalf of Soda Stream, which found almost all respondents living in London believed they can positively help shape the future of the planet by choosing packaging materials other than plastic.    Polling 2,000 adults (266 who live in the capital) the survey found 34% of Londoners already favour using a reusable flask over single-use bottles with 56% saying in the future they will ditch plastic in favour of more environmentally kind packaging.    The survey also revealed that television programme of the moment, Love Island has influenced views on water bottles, with 9% of Londoners saying seeing contestants on the show drinking from water flasks has encouraged them to follow suit.    In recent months we have seen national campaigns to reduce the number of plastic straws being used in the UK, with support from top food chains including McDonald's, Wagamama, Pret A Manger, Pizza Express and Costa.    There has also been a huge reduction in single-use plastic bag usage with 78% of respondents in the capital confirming they now use a bag for life or another alternative when shopping, in a bid to protect the environment.

					More than half of young people would support a political party if they tackled air pollution, survey finds
				</title>
				<description>
					 More than half of young people would support a political party if they tackled air pollution: Reducing air pollution is a major concern for young people, a survey has found, with over half saying they would back a political party if leaders offered to make it a top concern.   The poll for Conserative think tank, Bright Blue found that almost half of respondents felt that the Government is not doing enough to reduce toxic pollutants in the air and 40% said if a political party pledged to improve air quality and reduce pollution, they would be more likely to support them. When looking at younger voters (under 40) 54% said they would be more likely to support a political party dedicated to tackling air pollution.    Almost two-thirds of respondents said they want the current government to improve air quality levels as a priority.   The survey also revealed most respondents think ministers are most responsible for pushing forward the process. Ten percent felt industries linked to air pollution and individuals should to take the lead, while 5% said it was automotive industries who should tackle the issue.    Bright Blue researcher, Eamonn Ives said: 'The government's plans for reducing air quality have been widely criticised and deemed inadequate by the High Court.    'The public clearly believe national government should play a bigger role ' in fact, the biggest role ' in introducing measures to reduce air pollution."         lt;body id="cke_pastebin" style="position: absolute; top: 274px; width: 1px; height: 1px; overflow: hidden; left: -1000px;"gt;

				<description>
					 Museum quarter tops the poll of tourist attractions favoured by Hull residents: The Museum Quarter in Hull is the place most enjoyed by Hull residents in a poll of favourite things to do in the city, with almost three-quarters saying it was their top choice.    Asked whether they felt Hull had benefitted from being the European City of Culture in 2017, 92 % those polled, agreed that it had.   The survey of 1,200 local people found the  Museum Quarter - a collection of four free museums - had been visited the most in the last two years, with 60% revealing they been there more than once.   Ranking as Hull's second most visited site was the Maritime Museum, with 69% saying they had enjoyed a day out there in the last two years, followed by The Deep with half of those polled saying they had been.  Just 12% of local residents said they had visited the Arctic Corsair (a deep-sea trawler that has been converted to a museum ship) and of those, only 32% were satisfied with the experience.   Visitor numbers for the Spurn Lightship (also a vessel in Hull Marina - that closed in June 2018 to be relocated) were also among the lowest, with only 12% saying they had visited the attraction in the last two years.    Sixteen percent of respondents confessed they had visited none of the listed museums.

					Water quality in English rivers and lakes worse than in 2010, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 Water quality in English rivers and lakes worse than in 2010: A European survey into the quality of water in European rivers and lakes has found England in the bottom half of the European table ' with freshwater quality having deteriorated since 2010.    The findings are part of the European Environmental Agency's (EAA) State of our Waters research, which reviewed 130,000 rivers, lakes and estuaries throughout Europe over the past six years.  It found that across Europe only 40% of surface water was deemed to have 'good' or 'high' ecological status or potential.    The EAA's study found that overall there has been a marginal improvement in freshwater quality throughout Europe since the last samples were taken, however EU environment commissioner, Karmenu Vella said, 'much more has to be done' to get more surface and groundwater bodies up to a 'good rating'.    The study found that across Europe around 40% of surface waters were deemed in good ecological health, while only 38% had a good status when it came to chemical readings. Forty-six percent failed to reach 'good' status and 16% had a status 'unknown'.    Groundwaters were generally found to have the best status, with 74% achieving a good chemical and 89% achieving a good quantitative rating.    Peter Kristensen, who put together the report told The Guardian: 'England is comparable to countries in central Europe with a high proportion of water bodies failing to reach good status. The situation is much better in Scotland, where only around 45% of sites failed [to meet minimum standards].'   He also noted that factors such as population density, agricultural methods and the maintenance of bodies of water throughout Europe, contributed to the results.     You can read the report here

					A quarter of UK local charities fear for their survival, survey finds
				</title>
				<description>
					 A quarter of UK local charities fear for their survival: Many local charities in the UK are worried about their future, that's according to a national survey of more than 1,500 groups supported by the Co-op's Local Community Fund.    The Co-op sent the survey to 12,000 local causes it has supported through its Community Fund initiative since 2016 and over1,500 completed the poll.   The Causes and Effect survey sought to find out more about the challenges and opportunities facing local charities in the UK. Of the respondents speaking on behalf of their charities, many had concerns about the longevity of their organisation, with one in four saying they were 'worried' or 'very worried' about the future.    When asked to disclose some of the factors that led them to feel they were in a vulnerable position, 56% said that although there was clearly a need for their services as demand was growing, the increased funding or resources needed to meet that demand was not being fulfilled. Rising costs within the charity were also a concern for 44% of respondents, while 30% were facing difficulties due to reduced public funding.    Increased demand for services   The growing demand for services has meant that even with an increase in volunteers (43%) and employees (36%) two-thirds said they still needed more support.    The survey also brought into the spotlight the support given to charities from communities ' with 69% of fundraisers saying they would benefit from greater local interest in their organisation. Forty-three per cent of those polled also said they would benefit from forging greater links with other charities and community groups.    The Co-op's director of community engagement, Rebecca Birkbeck, said: 'With many groups finding themselves underfunded and under-resourced, it is increasingly important that we all support the crucial work of community groups, co-ops and local charities.'

					Just a quarter of charities give feedback to Trustees on donor experience, survey finds
				</title>
				<description>
					 Just a quarter of charities give feedback to Trustees on donor experience: A report by the Institute of Fundraising reveals that only a quarter of charities give feedback to their boards about the donor experience ' something they are urging organisations to improve, going forward.    The in-depth report titled Improving the Donor Experience, reveals findings from a survey of over 325 fundraisers across small, medium and large charities to find out what measures they had taken to improve the experience of charity donors.     Feeding back to Trustees   The survey found that only 28 percent of charity workers regularly fed back information to their Board of Trustees about the donor experience. This is despite 88% saying that it was the role of somebody within the organisation to review the experiences of donors and make recommendations for improvements. Forty percent said feeding back to the board was a joint responsibility, while 23 percent disclosed the responsibility lay more with the Fundraising Director.  In larger organisations, it was more usual for teams and departments to report to the board on such matters, while smaller charities often cited it as within a Fundraising Director's remit.    It also found that 76% of respondents would welcome case study examples of how other charities have improved their donors' experiences, with 69 percent being open to 'how-to' style guides to help them improve their current position.    In terms of meeting donors needs, 69 percent of organisations (85% smaller and 56% larger) said they go 'out of their way' to do so, with almost three quarters (75%) saying that building great donor experiences is 'the bedrock' of all their fundraising and communication efforts.    Fundraising consultant, Roger Lawson said at the Institute of Fundraising's annual meeting in London, where the report was launched: "I cannot think of another sector where customer satisfaction is not reported to the board. Yet three-quarters of us do not report to the board on this."   You can have a look at the full report here

					EFL fans want a choice when it comes to safe standing at matches, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 EFL fans want a choice when it comes to safe standing at matches: A survey of more than thirty-three thousand football fans has found 94% of Championship supporters and 92% of League One and Two supporters want to choose between safe standing and sitting down at football matches.    The survey, carried out by the EFL (English Football League) as part of its 'Stand up for Choice' campaign, found the majority of supporters would attend more games if licenced standing was an option.    Over 33,000 fans responded to the survey in less than two weeks ' making it the largest of its kind to date.    The idea of a safe standing section at EFL football grounds is mainly welcomed by supporters aged 18-34. The survey showed that 69% would prefer to stand, whereas 22% would rather be sat down.    In Scotland, the champions, Celtic were granted a safe-standing section at their Celtic Park stadium, and Shrewsbury Town of League One were allowed rail seating, which has been praised by clubs such as Manchester City, Manchester United and, former Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger.   Last year, West Bromwich Albion had a proposal for safe-standing rejected by the government.   Almost half (47%) of football fans polled said they would go to more football matches if there was safe-standing available.    An average of 61% of stadiums were full at EFL matches last season, meaning offering safe-standing could improve attendances.    Shaun Harvey, Chief Executive of the EFL said:   'Football supporters clearly want the option to stand at football matches and we see absolutely no reason why they should not be allowed the choice to have the match day experience they want."   A petition of 112,000 signatures forced a debate in parliament about safe-standing on 25 June 2018.

					Only 10 percent of UK local councils score 4-star rating for their websites, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 Only 10% of UK local councils score 4-star rating for their websites: The websites of UK councils have been put to the test by a team of reviewers and only 42 out of 414 local authorities were awarded 4-star status by testers.    The annual SOCITM Better Connected survey reviews local government websites for their usability (how easily users can find information and navigate around the site), as well as how accessible they are for disabled users.    In the 2017-18 survey (conducted by Better Connected professional reviewers), 10% of councils were awarded a four-star ('very good') rating -- up from 9% last year.   This compares to 46% given a 3-star 'good' rating, the same as 16/17.   There were fewer 2-star ratings (31%) in 17/18 than the previous year (35%), however, the survey revealed one-star ratings were up - from 11% in 16/17 to 13% in 17/18.   Key findings   These latest survey findings show that in 17/18, more councils (94%) offer a responsive or mobile site ' so can be used effectively by local people using a smartphone. This is up from 89% in 16/17 and up from 57% in 2015.    When it came to testing accessibility for disabled users 62% of websites passed the BetterConnected test  - which includes all sites given a 4-star rating.   Performance testing of websites    Websites were also tested for how well they performed when users were trying to carry out particular 'tasks' such as reporting a broken streetlight, finding out about their local bin collection or local development plans. They were also tested on how easy the site is to navigate, on search and A-Z facilities. and how accessible it is for people with disabilities.    Seventy per cent of websites were awarded 3 or 4 star status for how easily they could find out about roadworks, while just over half (53%) had a good or very good rating for being able to find out about childcare.    When it came to accessing information about parking, only 32% were given a 3-4 star rating, and when it came to being able to sign up for e-resources via the council website, only 39% were 3 or 4 star.

					Councils fear being unable to deliver balanced budgets in 2019-20, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 Councils fear being unable to deliver balanced budgets in 2019/20:   Almost twenty per cent of council leaders polled in a County Councils Network (CCN) survey said they are 'not confident' in being able to deliver balanced budgets in coming years, without additional funding from the Government.    The CCN survey revealed that almost one in five council leaders polled (17%) said that although they are confident in delivering balanced books this year, they do not have the same confidence when it comes to next year's outlook. This is despite a legal obligation to do so.    A further 19% could not say whether or not they could deliver a balanced budget in 2019/20, remaining 'neutral' on the matter.    Looking further into the future, confidence among council leaders drops even further, with 66% polled 'not confident' they will be in a position to deliver balanced budgets in 2020/21, without additional funding. That means that just one third have confidence they can make it work if things stay unchanged.    This comes as a separate budget survey, carried out by the Society of County Treasurers, reveals over the next couple of years 37 councils are facing funding pressures of £3.2 billion.    In order to deliver balanced budgets, county councils are appealing to the Government for more funding in the shorter term, saying they cannot afford to wait for the Spending Review.    'A long-term funding shake-up is long overdue ' and a short-term cash injection is required so councils can keep their heads above water,' said CCN finance spokesman, Cllr Nick Rushton.   Rushton, who is also the leader of Leicestershire County Council, said that without additional capital, 'the consequences could be dire'.    'The government is aware that some councils are already teetering on the edge. And the stark reality is they cannot wait for the comprehensive Spending Review.'

					Modern activities being chosen over traditional sports such as cycling and swimming
				</title>
				<description>
					 Modern activities being chosen over traditional sports such as cycling and swimming: There are fewer people getting out on their bikes or swimming to keep fit in England, a survey has found.    A dramatic drop    Sport England's Active Lives Adult Survey revealed a significant drop in people undertaking the sports, with 283,000 fewer people swimming and a drop of 93,000 people cycling in England.      However, that's not to say that they have stopped exercising altogether. The survey reveals that instead, they are trying alternative sports and classes such as interval training and adventure sports.    Increase in HIIT   An additional 518,000 people are turning to classes such as HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) - often available to follow on digital channels such as YouTube - as their exercise choice. The poll of 198, 911 people revealed 75% are interval training at the gym, while 20 percent are doing sessions at home. Forty-seven percent of these are between the ages of 16-34.    Activities such as rock climbing, orienteering, mountain walking and abseiling have also seen increased numbers getting on board, with 337,000 more people trying the sports in the past year.   The survey showed that 61.8% of adults in England partake in more than 150 minutes of exercise per week, while more than a quarter of the population is remaining inactive.    According to the data, older people are enjoying more physical activity, with more people in the 55 ' 74-year-old category (58.3%) undertaking more than 150 minutes of exercise a week ' an increase of 1.3 percent.    Speaking about the report, Sport England CEO Jennie Price said: 'While the overall activity levels of the nation are stable, what people are choosing to do is moving with the times.   'The popularity of HIIT shows the power of social media, and many older people are choosing to spend their leisure time in the great outdoors.'

					Drugs delivered faster than pizza, Global Drugs survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 Drugs delivered faster than pizza, Global Drugs survey reveals: An international survey into recreational drug use has found cocaine is delivered more quickly than a pizza in England and Scotland.   The survey polled 130,000 respondents, from 44 countries around the globe to learn more about drug use and the impact of drugs on health. It found drug users in Scotland used more cocaine in a single session than anywhere else in the world, with England not far behind.    The poll also shed light on the length of time it takes to gets drugs delivered around the world with 36.8% of the 1,000 users surveyed in England saying they could get their order within 30 minutes. In Scotland, 37,4% of the 500 users polled could get cocaine delivered in half an hour, which places the countries in fifth and six positions in the world rankings. Globally, the figure stands at 30.3% - based on the 15,000 users polled, revealing a similar trend around the world.    Faster than pizza delivery   The survey revealed just 12.2% of people surveyed in England could get a takeaway pizza delivered to their door in 30 minutes. In Scotland, that figure was 19.8%, while globally, only 16.5% of cocaine users said a pizza would arrive within half an hour.   Professor Alex Stevens, a criminologist at the University of Kent said the survey reveals the extent of the problem in England and Scotland.   He told Kent Online:"This report shows again that the Government's ambition to create a 'society free of drugs' is completely unrealistic.'   "It's time the Government followed the advice of countless expert groups and select committees and carried out a fundamental review of our drug laws," he added.

					EU students less interested in UK study since Brexit, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 EU students less interested in UK study since Brexit: Thirty-nine per cent of EU students are less interested in coming to the UK to study because of Brexit, a major survey of international students has found.    The International Student Survey, by QS Enrolment Solutions, polled 67,172 prospective students from 191 countries ' with 28,000 thousand of them having considered studying in the UK.    The findings revealed students from Italy, The Netherlands, Lithuania, Ireland and Spain had significant doubts over UK study because of the split with the EU. Their main reasoning being that Brexit has made it a 'less financially viable option'.   Another thing turning students off the idea off higher education in the UK is confusion over fees. Almost a third (32%) of EU students polled were unaware the fees they will pay if they start in 2018-19 will be the same as UK students for the full length of their course, the survey revealed.   Non-EU Students    When it comes to students from outside the EU, only one in ten have been discouraged from considering  UK universities because of Brexit. In fact, the drop in the pound's value has made studying in the UK appear a more attractive proposition for many students from countries including Pakistan (24%), Sudan (22%) and Ethiopia (20%) China (18%) and Hong Kong (19%).    Being made to feel welcome    One of the most important factors when choosing where to study according to students polled (69%) is how welcoming a destination is.    Many prospective students (82%) said campaigns such as #WeAreInternational and #LondonisOpen have made them feel positive about coming to the UK to studey and have been effective in going against negative Brexit notions. .   Patrick Whitfield, Director of UK  Europe at QS Enrolment Solutions, commented:    'Now is the time for the UK government to work with universities and sector stakeholders to champion the UK as a study destination for international students.    'With the current uncertainty in the sector as the UK prepares to exit the EU, any future proposals which help to make the UK a more attractive place to study from a financial perspective should be more widely publicised."

					12 million energy customers have not changed providers in 5 years
				</title>
				<description>
					 Twelve million energy customers have not changed providers in five years: A report published by smart meter company, The Labrador, has revealed many UK households have not changed energy providers over the last five years and 18 million believe they are on the best deal. .    The Energy Profile Report 2018 compiled and analysed data from the firm's 'Labrador Retriever' device, which revealed the number of people paying energy bills based on actual meter readings was just 12% over the last decade. And, according to Labrador, less than 15% of energy customers pay for their gas and electricity based on meter readings.   The report also suggests that many people do not know the different offers energy companies have available for customers, with 5.5 million believing they offer the same, and almost 18 million thinking their tariff is the 'best deal'. It also revealed many users who are in rental properties (4 million), continue with the supplier set up by the landlord or a previous tenant when they move into a property.    Uncertainty about energy bills    According to the findings, 2.2 million people are unsure about whether their bills are calculated using actual or estimated meter readings and many do not know how much their electricity and gas is costing per month.    Lack of knowledge surrounding bills could mean many households are paying more than they need to for their energy. In 2017, Ofgem said there were 13 million UK customers on "poor value standard variable rates", which could mean an additional £300 extra to pay in bills over the course of year.    "Energy is one of the biggest household bills, but less than 20% of us switched provider last year," said Jane Lucy, founder and CEO of The Labrador.   "The Energy industry has profited for years as a result and done nothing but cause confusion and generate misinformation which is making the situation worse. People need a transparent service they can trust, that is committed to work for them.'

					Survey reveals impact of cost savings in UK schools
				</title>
				<description>
					 Survey reveals impact of cost savings in UK schools: A recent survey by the Association of School and College Leaders has shed light on the extent of cost savings in UK schools.    In the poll of 238 school business leaders, almost all questioned (99%) said their school had made cost savings over the last 12 months with 46 per cent saying these were up to £100,000.   Others reported they have had to make larger cost savings, with 22 per cent saying the figure was upward of £150,000 and 9 per cent saying it amounted to more than £300,000.    The effects of cost savings in UK schools   Cost savings in the last twelve months have had a dramatic impact on school services and staff numbers, according to the survey. The largest area affected being support staff, with 77 per cent of respondents saying their school has had to make cuts. Forty-one per cent said they have also had to cut back on senior-level teaching staff, with 43 per cent believing they will have to do the same next year.    Last year, 64 per cent of leaders said there was reduced spending on maintenance of the school, while 69 per cent said they had tried to save money by renegotiating service contracts. One in five respondents (20%) also revealed their school has had to turn to parents to ask for contributions for mainstream activities, something that a quarter (24%) are expecting to do in the coming year.    When asked what impact the cost savings have had on their school over the past 12 months, 59 per cent said it had increased teacher workload, with just slightly less saying it had reduced individual support for children (56%) and reduced curriculum options (51%).    Over the next twelve months, 58 per cent of leaders expect the teacher workload will again increase because of cost saving, with 65 per cent saying they expect there will be reduced support for pupils - an increase on lasy year. Fifty-four per cent believe there will be reduced curriculum opportunities in the next academic year ' which again is up on current  figures.    Just over half of respondents polled said that over the past 12 months classroom sizes had increased (52%), while 46 per cent said there were fewer enrichment activities available. Counselling and mental health services have also been impacted with 23 per cent saying they have had to make cost savings. These are areas that 31 per cent of leaders believe will face cuts over the next 12 months.    In-year deficits    Of all those surveyed, just under half said that their school is running with an in-year deficit on the current financial year (49.58%) with the same number saying they currently have no free reserves. Looking to next year, almost 60% said they believe they will be in deficit.    Describing the survey findings as 'stark', Geoff Barton, the general secretary of ASCL, said the work of schools will be 'increasingly eroded' unless the government takes 'urgent action over the school funding crisis'.   'The ability to provide individual support to students ' working with often vulnerable young people to overcome barriers to learning ' will be further undermined. Hard-won standards are being put at risk by chronic government underinvestment,' he added.

					Pensioners have an average of £3,500 in credit card debts, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 Pensioners have an average of £3,500 in credit card debts: Debts are mounting for British pensioners as they turn to credit cards to pay unexpected bills, a survey has found.    The research, on behalf of equity release provider, Key Retirement, also found that almost 20 per cent of retirees are struggling to pay the debt back.    Unanticipated bills were found to be a major cause of credit card debt, with 18 per cent saying this was the reason they had to go into the red.    The most common reason for credit card spending was for car repairs with just under half of respondents (49%) having to turn to their plastic to pay the bill. Other reasons were cited as home repairs (39%) and helping their children out financially (19%).    While the average balance owed was £3,500, this figure was greater in the West Midlands where debts amounted to £4,700. Pensioners in the north west and north east amassed slightly less at £3,900.    Paying back the money    The survey also found that of all the retirees spending on credit cards, 61 per cent believe they will be able to settle the debts quickly, while 29 per cent anticipate that time frame will be closer to five years. Six per cent of respondents are unsure if they will ever be able to repay the money owed.    Dean Mirfin of Key Retirement said:  "It is not possible to plan for everything and sometimes an unexpected bill will mean having to rely on credit cards to fund it.   "The problem then compounds itself if people cannot clear the balance and get caught by another surprise bill.   'Unfortunately, it all adds up, which means a serious financial burden in retirement. People need to get help and look at all their assets which should include their property if they are a homeowner.'

					People facing retirement still supporting family members, survey finds
				</title>
				<description>
					 A survey by financial services provider, Prudential, found that almost a third (31%) of people planning to retire this year are still supporting family members financially.   The poll found that while children are the most likely to be given financial support from parents, grandchildren and even older generations are also being helped ' with an average spend of £4,320 a year.    Just under a quarter (23%) of those expecting to retire in 2018 help their families with university tuition fees and money towards living expenses. Others (22%) are helping children with a financial boost to help them buy their first home.    Monthly spending   Soon-to-be retirees predict they will pay out around £360 per month to family members, with 19 per cent putting that figure at over £500 ' money that 27 per cent of respondents say goes towards travel expenses and other living costs such as food.    The average number of family members being supported by those planning to retire this year is three, the poll of 1,000 found.     'Increasing financial pressure faced by people of all ages, such as the cost of university education and the rising cost of buying a home, means that providing financial support to family members continues well in to retirement,' said Stan Russell, a Prudential retirement income expert.    'While it's understandable so many people want to financially support family members, it is important to make sure they have enough money set aside themselves to cover their own living costs and don't put their retirement at risk,' he added.

					Half of self-employed 'seriously concerned' about pension
				</title>
				<description>
					 Half of self-employed 'seriously concerned' about pension: Concerns over lack of savings is a big worry for just under half of self-employed people, a survey has revealed.    Forty-six per cent of self-employed respondents who took part in the poll of 1,000 are 'seriously concerned' about their retirement savings, with 38% 'seriously concerned' with their current pension savings.    Those questioned in the survey also took part in focus groups across the UK conducted by cross-party think-tank, Demos, supported by the Independent Professionals and the Self Employed (IPSE).    Happy in self-employment despite pension concerns   It found that despite being worried over pension forecasts, eight in ten were happy with being self-employed, with seven out of ten having no plans to leave their current working situation.   Alan Lockey, head of Demos' Modern Economy Programme, said:   "The rise of self-employment is one of the biggest changes to the modern economy in the last couple of decades.   "We need to think pragmatically about whether we should actively encourage it ' it could be that it is the British solution for a more flexible, less rigid approach to life and work in the future, as it already is for millions of people.   "That means we need a new deal to boost security for the self-employed and by far the most urgent problem is dealing with a looming pensions and savings crisis."

					Retailers losing out on £18 billion a year due to shoppers abandoning online baskets
				</title>
				<description>
					 Retailers losing out on £18 billion a year due to shoppers abandoning online baskets: Shoppers loading their online baskets and then not going through to checkout are causing retailers to miss out on £18bn in potential sales, a survey suggests.    The research, carried out by Barclaycard Smartpay, surveyed 2,000 people who admitted they had abandoned goods, with the most likely items being knitwear, leather, and lingerie.   The baskets not making it to checkout:   The survey revealed that consumers are far more likely to walk away from an online purchase, with 41 per cent saying they had in the past year, compared to around a quarter of those surveyed (24%) who had changed their mind in store.    Shoppers aged 25-34 were found to be the most likely to abandon their goods followed by 18-24-year-olds, with the peak times for walking away from a transaction: 8pm -10pm and 6pm-8pm   The £18billiion potential sales figure was reached by calculating the average abandoned basket figure of £30 and taking all UK adults into account.    The goods being most frequently abandoned online in the UK:   1. Women's knitwear 2. Leather goods, such as wallets 3. Women's lingerie  hosiery 4. Headphones 5. Watches 6. Women's sportswear 7. Women's skirts 8. Books 9. Men's trousers / jeans 10. Women's tops  shirts   George Allardice, of Barclaycard Payment Solutions, said of the issue of basket abandonment online:   "There are many ways retailers can convert online interest into sales ' whether this is reminder emails about items left in online baskets, reducing the steps required to check out online, or securely storing card details so shoppers don't need to re-enter them every time they visit a site."

					 March sees 6% slump in high street shoppers ' the largest drop since 2010: A footfall survey suggests retailers felt the full brunt of March's dismal cold snap, with the weather keeping shoppers away from the high street.    The data, compiled by Springboard, showed there were 6% less shoppers on the high street in March than the same time in 2017, when temperatures were similar to those felt in Spain.    Although high street footfall was mostly affected, with an 8.6 % drop, shopping centres were also down by 4.8% and retail parks experienced a 1.8% decline ' which Springboard attribute to the extreme weather.    A Springboard director, Diane Wehrle said of the data:   'The severe weather put paid to any glimmer of hope for an uplift in shopper activity in March. A proportion of this was made up over Easter, with footfall in shopping centres and retail parks rising from last Easter, but this was more than offset by the impact of the heavy rain on high streets.'   In addition to the footfall data, consumer spending also fell to 2% in March, indicates the findings of Visa card user survey.    'We are in the midst of a dip in consumer confidence and this ' coupled with other economic factors ' is causing shoppers to continue to restrain themselves,' said Mark Antipof, the chief commercial officer at Visa ' whose data helps IHS Markit to compile the UK consumer spending index.     'High street sales suffered once again; however, it is also noteworthy that e-commerce spend fell for the first time in 10 months, and by its fastest rate since 2012,' he added.    As well as a slump on the high street, March saw online sales dropping by 1.2% (compared to a rise of 0.3% in February) and store transactions fall 3% (compared to 2.4% the previous month), the Visa survey revealed.

					Expect 9,828 bad cuppas in your lifetime

				<description>
					 Expect 9,828 bad cuppas in your lifetime: The latest research by tea company, Clipper, has revealed making a good cup of tea is actually not that easy. In fact, in our lifetime we will be subject to 9,828 poor ones.    The survey polled 2,000 Britons about their drinking habits and had some interesting findings, including that we drink on average 28 cups of tea a week, but  only enjoy 25 of them.    Half of respondents revealed that they have complained to a partner, colleague or friend when their tea-making efforts were below par and three quarters of tea-drinkers believe the way a person makes your cuppa shows just how much they really know you.    Three in ten (30%) people felt so disappointed by a bad cup of tea they genuinely felt insulted by it, while 10% would rather someone forgot their birthday than deliver them a bad cup of tea.    Who is the most likely to make us a bad cuppa?    The research found that work colleagues were the worst culprits when it came to making us a sub-standard brew, but 40% would never reveal their disappointment to their boss. And of all those polled, just 20% would let their partner know if they made them a bad cup of tea.    Grumbles around tea-making    Of all the tea-making grumbles revealed, 36% said their tea was too weak, while another cause for moan was that it was lukewarm when they received it (35%). Serving a cup of tea in a mug that had not been washed properly upset a quarter of respondents, while 20% said the cup was not full enough.      Top twenty tea complaints:   1. Too weak - 36% 2. Lukewarm - 35% 3. Too milky - 30% 4. The teabag has not been in for long enough - 26% 5. The mug has not been washed properly - 25% 6. It has the incorrect amount of milk - 21% 7. The cup is half empty - 20% 8. It is poor quality tea - 19% 9. The cup is half full - 18% 10. Too strong - 18% 11. The teabag was left in too long - 18% 12. The milk was put in before the tea - 18% 13. Someone rushed the process - 16% 14. Not enough sugar or sweetener was in it - 15% 15. There are tea stains down the cup - 14% 16. Not milky enough - 14% 17. The mug is chipped - 13% 18. The wrong type of milk - 11% 19. They gave you sugar/sweetener when you don't take it - 11% 20. It is not the right brand of tea - 9%

					Millennials in support of GM crops, a survey reveals

				<description>
					 Millennials in support of GM crops, a survey reveals: A recent study has found that young people are 'embracing technology' when it comes to the future of farming in the UK.   This includes genetic modification (GM) of crops and GM technologies - with just 22 per cent of millennials having concerns about their use.    The survey, commissioned by the Agricultural Biotechnology Council (ABC), revealed that around two thirds of 18-30 year-olds polled recognise the benefits of technology in helping the sustainability of British farming in the coming years, and support futuristic farming methods.    The poll of 1,600 millennials also revealed that around two thirds back the use of drones to carry out farming tasks such as counting sheep and spraying crops. Around two thirds of respondents were also in support of unmanned aerial vehicles, with only 26 per cent opposing self-driving tractors on farms.    Supportive of modern farming techniques:    The survey showed that the younger age group (18-30 year olds) are the most supportive of modern farming techniques.    Going forward, the ABC wants to see technologies made available for use in the UK that have previously not been permitted by the EU.    Mark Buckingham, chair of the Agricultural Biotechnology Council said: 'We are delighted to see young people embrace technology as part of the future of farming.   'Using cutting edge technology and growing techniques will enable the UK to deal with the serious challenges of keeping our farmers competitive, maintaining a safe, affordable food supply, and protecting our natural environment."

					 Survey reveals food diet myths Britons live by: There are plenty of old wives' tales out there when it comes to food, but a survey has revealed just how much people in the UK live by them.    From chewing gum taking seven years to digest and carrots helping you see in the dark, the poll of 2,000 Britons revealed the food myths we most commonly believe and use ' with four in ten people turning to them to inform their daily lifestyle..   The survey, commissioned by Spatone, revealed respondents believe skipping meals can aid weight loss, as can refraining from eating after 8pm. Others believe sugar is a great source of energy, and, despite being proven wrong in recent years, a fifth of those surveyed believe that eggs are bad for you, owing to their high cholesterol levels.    One of the 'myths' that does have an element of truth, however, is that apples can help 'clean your teeth' ' removing food and plaque as you chew.    Energy levels    When asked about their day-to-day energy levels, almost four in 10 were concerned that they do not take in enough energy. Monday is when we generally feel at our lowest ebb, followed by Wednesday and Thursdays.    Respondents also revealed there were seven days in a month where they woke up feeling like they were without enough energy to see them through the day, while less than one in 10 saying their energy levels were 'excellent'.   Anna Lioni, brand manager for Spatone, said: 'Our survey results found some worrying statistics about the lack of knowledge around energy sources.   'And it also showed more than half of Brits have felt so low in energy, they actually thought they were falling ill ' with a quarter then consulting a doctor or health professional.   'Often, a lack of energy comes from a missing nutrient or vitamin, which supplements can help with ' as part of a healthy, varied diet.'     Common food myths - but are they true or false?   'Eating apples cleans your teeth.' True 'Carrots make you see in the dark.' False 'Eggs are bad for you because they are high in cholesterol.' False 'Sugar gives you energy.' False 'Skipping meals helps you lose weight.' False 'No pain while exercising means no gain.' False 'You shouldn't eat a meal after 8pm if you want to lose weight'. False 'Gum takes seven years to be digested.' False

					 Want to sell more goods? Offer free water to customers, a survey suggests: Retailers and businesses are more likely to make a sale if they offered free water to consumers ' or so suggests a new survey by YouGov.    The survey, commissioned by Brita Professional and Keep Britain Tidy, revealed that almost two thirds (64%) of consumers in the UK would be more willing to buy a product or service if they could top-up their reusable water bottle. The findings were delivered to Parliament on 17 April to help support Brita Professional's efforts to see a decline in single-use plastic in favour of reusable bottles, as part of its #SwapForGood campaign.    Obstacles to reducing single-use plastic bottles.   The research suggests people's concerns over cleanliness may be a barrier to ending the widespread use of single-use bottles, with 59% of men and 64% of women revealing their reservations. Public water fountains were used by just 9% of those polled, revealing little has changed since a similar survey was conducted in 2017.     There was a little more optimism for refilling in cafes and shops, with 73% saying they would consider switching to a reusable bottle if they could freely access water. The research also suggested people were a little unsure about asking for tap water when in a food or drink retailer ' with 63 per cent saying retailers should provide customers with tap water should they request it.    'There has been encouraging progress in the past year to address litter levels from single-use plastic, but this report demonstrates that we are not there yet, said Allison Ogden-Newton, chief executive of Keep Britain Tidy.   'Too many people still find it challenging to fill up on the go, while many more are still embarrassed to ask for tap, worried about the safety of water fountains, or just unwilling to go the extra mile and carry around a reusable bottle. We've simply got to get to a situation where topping up in glass or refillable bottle is the norm.'

					New research sheds light on misconceptions of cancer causes

				<description>
					 New research sheds light on misconceptions of cancer causes: A study carried out by University College London (UCL) and the University of Leeds, highlights the many beliefs people have around what can cause cancer.    The survey, part-funded by Cancer Research UK, questioned 1,330 people and found many of them believed in risk-factors for which there is no solid scientific evidence.   Forty-three per cent of respondents believed stress could make them more likely to get cancer, while slightly less (42%), thought consuming food with additives could increase their chances.    Other 'mythical' factors according the Cancer Research UK were electromagnetic frequencies (35%), eating GM food (34%), microwave ovens (19%) and drinking from plastic bottles (15%).   The study also found 'approximately half of known lifestyle-related risk factors were not recognised by the general public in England'.   Respondents did correctly identify some cancer risk factors including smoking (88%), passive smoking (80%) and sunburn (60%).   The findings were published in the European Journal of Cancer.    Dr Samuel Smith from the University of Leeds said: 'It's worrying to see so many people endorse risk factors for which there is no convincing evidence.   'Compared to past research it appears the number of people believing in unproven causes of cancer has increased since the start of the century which could be a result of changes to how we access news and information through the internet and social media.   'It's vital to improve public education about the causes of cancer if we want to help people make informed decisions about their lives and ensure they aren't worrying unnecessarily.'   Clare Hyde from Cancer Research UK said: 'Around
