					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
				</title>
				<description>
					 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

				<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.

					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."

					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.'

				<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

					Fifth of drivers ready for electric or hybrid vehicles, reveals survey
				</title>
				<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."

				<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

				<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.
				</title>
				<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.

					Many school children taught in overcrowded and inadequate buildings, survey of teachers reveals

				<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, survey reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 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

				<description>
					 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: 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.'

					Survey reveals changing consciousness of consumers, with 44% believing they will no longer use supermarket by 2030
				</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
				</title>
				<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 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
				</title>
				<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

				<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

				<description>
					 Almost one in two people in UK worry their water is contaminated:  Britons are concerned about the quality of their tap water, according to a new survey, with almost one in five polled consuming over three single-use bottles of water a week as a result.    The study carried out by water purification company, Bluewater, found that 49% of respondents surveyed in the UK were worried about contaminants in their water supply such as lead, plastic particles, bacteria and carcinogens.   The survey of 1,200 members of the general public also found 47 percent buy bottled water or use filtration systems to manage their water consumption.    Findings also reveal that 21% of respondents worry about bacteria in their water supply, while 16% have concerns over plastic particles. Other anxieties include the presence of lead or other harmful metals in drinking water, of which 12% felt was a worry, while 10% were concerned over pharmaceutical contaminants.    Fifteen per cent (15%) of respondents also noted that they have (or know someone who has) had a water supply problem since 2016.

					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

				<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
				</title>
				<description>
					 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
				</title>
				<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
				</title>
				<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

				<description>
					 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

				<description>
					 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
				</title>
				<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 four in 10 cancer cases could be prevented through lifestyle changes so it's crucial we have the right information to help us separate the wheat from the chaff.

					Healthcare Assistants taking on additional roles often without training
				</title>
				<description>
					 Healthcare Assistants taking on additional roles often without training: A survey of healthcare assistants (HCAs) working in the NHS has revealed two thirds of workers are carrying out tasks that are usually the responsibility of nurses or other staff members, often without adequate training or proper supervision.    The research by public service union, Unison, polled 2,000 HCAs working in the NHS throughout the UK and found many had undertaken tasks such as taking patients' blood pressure, dressing wounds and giving drugs.    Almost three quarters (74%) surveyed said they have had to carry out additional tasks when at work ' because of staff shortages, with more than half (51%) disclosing they had not had any further training to undertake tasks such as giving out medication and changing stoma bags.    Follow up to earlier Unison survey   The research was ordered to follow up on a 2016 survey by Unison to 'return to some of the key issues identified' to gain an accurate picture of working in the NHS from the point of view of frontline staff.    A lack of support and inadequate training    Two thirds (63%) of respondents said the support they had from doctors and nurses when left to care for patients was not adequate, while 39 per cent said they are do not feel confident about the safety of patients they are tasked with looking after.    The conditions, according to respondents, have been worse over the last winter than the previous year with over half (57%) saying they have had picked up more work this year because of nursing or clinical staff shortages.    Compared to last year, 41 per cent of HCAs have also been asked to carry out tasks without being first provided with adequate training, while 37% noted the frequency of having to carry out tasks unsupervised had increased.    Nicole, a HCA in Manchester and a case study from the Unison study, said: 'On my first day I was shown how to do tasks like taking pulses and blood pressure by another HCA. They said they'd never been properly trained how to do it and weren't really sure if they were doing it properly. HCAs are doing ECGs and taking bloods, that's a lot of responsibility.'   UNISON head of health Sara Gorton said: 'Healthcare assistants are being left to fill staffing gaps and do vital tasks without recognition or reward. It's bad for them and bad for patients.   'It is important these staff receive training for all the extra responsibilities they're expected to take on.   'It's clear the pressures on them to act as nurse substitutes have increased over the winter. The Government needs to show they value healthcare assistants by investing in their training.'

					Ninety per cent of councils cutting services aimed at preventing illness
				</title>
				<description>
					 Ninety per cent of councils cutting services aimed at preventing illness: Funding has been cut to public health services by 90% of councils, putting greater pressure on GPs, an investigation has found.   Services such as sexual health clinics, drug and alcohol treatment programmes and help to quit smoking services have had their funding dramatically reduced or even stopped in some cases.   The research by GP publication, Pulse, surveyed 80 councils to compile the data, which has caused doctors to warn the situation will put additional strain on an already stretched National Health Service.   Council cuts to preventative health services   The service to experience the greatest cuts by councils is drug and alcohol treatment services ' with 87 per cent of councils cutting funding. Funding for these services has been reduced by 3 per cent (on average) and was also subject to a 6 per cent cut in 2017.    Funding to sexual health clinics has been cut by 83 per cent of councils and by an average of 2 percent this year, with funding cut by 5 per cent just 12 months ago.    Smoking services have also been cut by 73 per cent of councils, although this is largely the same as it was last year, while many weight-management services have been stopped altogether.    Chairman of the British Medical Association's GP committee, Dr Richard Vautrey, said: "Practices are all too often left picking up the pieces and patients are losing the option of access to important services in their area.   "Ultimately these short-sighted cuts will cost the NHS in the long run as we don't properly invest in prevention and health promotion."   Between 2015-2017 the public health grant for England was slashed by around 10% and in 2019-20 from £3.5 billion to £3.34 billion.

					Four-fifths of teachers have thought about leaving the profession, reveals poll
				</title>
				<description>
					 Four-fifths of teachers have thought about leaving the profession, reveals poll: A survey conducted by the National Education Union (NEU) revealed that 81% of teachers who took part have considered alternative careers over the last twelve months due to heavy workloads.   Forty per cent of respondents revealed that in order to keep on top of their workload, they regularly undertake work at home, totalling more than 21 hours a week. Some teachers also said and that in some cases the workload was having a dramatic impact on their personal and family lives.   One teacher said she was 'exhausted' and that 'great teachers are being driven out of the profession because they are burned out.'   Respondents noted that over the past 12 months their workload had never felt manageable. Just 15 per cent said that for all or most of the time they were happy with their work-life balance.   The survey, which polled 8,173 teachers, also found that 80 per cent clock up more teaching hours than the average number in 2016.   Similarities with NASUWT findings The results of the survey are in line with similar research carried out by another teaching union, NASUWT, which found 65 per cent of teachers polled had given serious consideration to leaving the teaching profession over the past year.   The survey findings come as figures show teacher training course applications for September are 20 per cent lower than at this point in 2017.   Kevin Courtney, joint general secretary of the NEU said:   'If the government does not act decisively and soon, the recruitment and retention crisis will seriously damage our children and young people's education.'   Education secretary, Damian Hinds has pledged to put teacher workload as a top priority since his appointment in January.   A Department for Education spokesperson said:   'Earlier this month the education secretary made clear that his priority was to work with the profession and ensure that remains the case by getting back to the heart of successful teaching, stripping away the workload that doesn't add value to education and looking at other ways to help recruit and retain the brightest and best.'   DJS Research Ltd have completed research looking in further detail at the recruitment and retention crisis in schools on behalf of the National Audit Office. The report is available to view in our library of published research.

					Millennials staying in the same sector due to fears of starting a new career, survey suggests
				</title>
				<description>
					 Millennials staying in the same sector due to fears of starting a new career, survey suggests: While millennials may have a reputation for being more mobile than previous generations in the workplace, a new survey suggests otherwise.    The survey of 1,000 people dubbed 'the millennial generation' (born between 1980 ' 1999) reveals over half (53%) have stayed in the same career rather than start again in a new sector.    The research conducted by education charity, Teach First, revealed the reasons for almost three in ten workers staying in the same job is the fear of having to start again at entry level, or that the change would not work out for them. This is despite 32% admitting they are not happy in their current role.    The findings of the study also suggest that it is not the reduction in salary that is stopping millennials making the career leap, with only a fifth (19%) putting a high income as more important than personal fulfilment when looking for new job opportunities.    The research also found that making a difference to the lives of other people was important to respondents with just under a third (29%) saying they would find their current role more rewarding if it met that objective.    CEO of Teach First, Russell Hobby told The Independent:    'People talk a lot about millennials moving from one career to the next, constantly looking for more progress and greater responsibilities. I think this research shows that some of that is unfair actually.    'Although they are a bit more mobile than previous generations, what they are really searching for is greater meaning in their work ' and a role that will bring them the satisfaction and the social impact that they are looking for.'

					Research reveals museums becoming clearer on digital
				</title>
				<description>
					  Research reveals museums, galleries and cultural institutions are generally becoming clearer on digital: The most recent wave of the Digital Culture survey, conducted by Nesta and Arts Council England and published in September 2017, suggests a number of key trends.  First, organisations in the cultural sector are doing fewer digital activities, but are clearer and more confident about the types of digital engagement which work best for them. On the face of it, the decline from 9.2 to 7.8 digital activities being undertaken on average between 2013 and 2017 seems a cause for concern (there are 24 activity areas which are tracked). However, looking at museums specifically, more than two thirds (61%) have now digitised at least half of their collection, and more than a fifth run digital exhibitions according to the survey of 211 institutions. The general trend across the sector as a whole suggests a that organisations are utilising smaller numbers of digital channels but in more effective ways.  Museums are also more likely than other art forms to provide educational content or online events, provide interactive educational experiences or to include digital experiences alongside tours or artwork.  Museums have particularly improved their mobile engagement. From fewer than a third (29%) having a mobile enabled web-presence in 2013, the figure now sits at 64% - although this is still slightly behind the wider arts and cultural sector (69%). Significantly fewer museums also tend to use Twitter (74% vs. 85% for the wider arts and cultural sector), YouTube (36% vs. 50%) and Instagram (35% vs. 48%).  Finally, a significantly lower proportion of museums utilises visitor contact details to send out newsletters (66% vs. 74%), and there has been a decline in the number of museums utilising data to inform their broader strategic direction (43% in 2017, down from 47% in 2013).

					Home Ownership at Record Low for Under 25s
				</title>
				<description>
					 According to new figures published today by the Local Government Association and Savills, home ownership among people aged under 25 has fallen to just one in five (20%)  - compared to almost half (46%) two decades ago.  In its report, the Local Government Association suggested that the Government needed to take action to tackle the shortage of affordable homes ' including both those available to rent, and those available for purchase. Figures from the survey suggest that the average private-renter spends more than a third (34%) of their household income on rent, whilst people living in social and affordable rented properties spend approximately 29% of their household income on rent.  Notably, the figure for home owners fall dramatically ' they spend less than a fifth (18%) of their household income on their mortgage on average. However, it should also be noted that the average deposit required to secure a mortgage is now almost two thirds of annual income (62% of annual income) and this rises to 131% in London.  The Government is due to launch a whitepaper tackling the issue of housing in early 2017. In the meantime, a spokesman for the Department for Communities and Local Government said that 335,000 people had been helped in to homeownership since 2010, as a result of schemes backed by the Government in that time.

					Smaller percentage of families offered a place at their first choice secondary school
				</title>
				<description>
					 A recent education survey has revealed that one in seven families (approximately 76,000) did not secure a place at their first choice of secondary school last year and a further 25 per cent (19,000) did not get into any of their chosen schools.  Research from the New Schools Network revealed that getting a place at a first choice school has decreased every year for three years. With these findings in mind, it is unlikely that this trend will change in the next few weeks, when the results of 2015's school allocation is published.  The researchers also discovered that families living in cities and urban areas are less likely to get a place at their first choice secondary school, with 25 per cent of those living in Birmingham and London missing out on a place at their top pick. In comparison, in the North East and South West of England, fewer than 10 per cent are not offered a place at their first choice school.  The research revealed that the most places within schools are being created in institutions which are achieving worsening GCSE results.  Since 2011, more than 50 per cent (42,000) of the 79,000 places created were within institutions with worsening GCSE grades. Approximately 14,000 of school places were created within institutions rated as 'failing' by Ofsted.  The results of the findings have come shortly after the news that at least 17 local councils are considering creating 'Super Schools'. These schools will have between 12 and 16 classes per year group and will have between 2,000 and 4,000 pupils attending them.  The councils hope that the implementation of 'Super Schools' will serve the 80,000 secondary school places which are forecasted to be needed before 2019.

					No approval sought for animal testing, survey shows
				</title>
				<description>
					 A survey carried out by Echa (European Chemical Agency), found that registrants to REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals), are testing on animals, without prior approval from Echa.  REACH states that registrants are required to gain permission before conducting higher-tier animal tests, by submission of a testing proposal to Echa, before experiments are to be conducted. The Regulation also compels them to consider 'whenever possible ... means other than vertebrate animal tests', when generating information for their reports.   The number of new experimental studies has almost tripled since 2011 (from 107 to 295), though when comparing percentages, they seem to have remained at quite a low level (6% compared to 5.5%).  Echa discovered these findings by screening 295 new registrations, presented for the 2013 deadline ' the second survey after their previous screening in 2011.    Out of these 295 instances, 126 produced likely justifications as to why testing had been conducted. The remaining 169 were then contacted by telephone to determine reasons as to why they hadn't asked for consent.  National enforcement and member state competent authorities have the power to investigate these registrants.  When notifying these organisations, Echa asked them to show them the results of their enquiries.  Echa acknowledge that in many of these instances, it is probable that the registrant was not committing an offence, but was in fact failing to comply to REACH's standards, because of the absence of permission for a test.  It was discovered that 82 of the tests were justified in not submitting proposals, as they may have been conducted to gain compliance under other laws, such as the EU biocides Regulation.  Also, 88 of the tests, were found to have been conducted by a different authorisation body.  Unfortunately however, in 36 instances no explanation was given at all, and in 50 instances only vague or imprecise reasons were provided, and 15 registrants informed that they had misunderstood REACH requirements.  Although Echa informed The European Coalition to End Animal Experiments of the 126 reasons for non-compliance, the group has asked for clarity, as they admitted that they do not agree with Echa's valuations of some of the instances. They said:  'In the meantime, regardless of possible explanations, it is now up to national authorities to investigate the tests that were done in their country and ensure the law is properly enforced ... this report demonstrates that more needs to be done by industry and the agency, to make it clear to companies how they should ensure that animal testing is a last resort.'

The researcher questioned 1,000 people on behalf of Nabo - a social network for communities - and found that despite being distant with their neighbours, Australians intend to improve their relationships with them.  The survey also found that 63 per cent of millennials wish they knew their neighbours better, as opposed to 52 per cent of generation X.  Founder and CEO of Nabo, Adam Rigby, said that the results suggest that Australians have a latent desire to communicate better with their neighbourhoods.  He added: "We are disconnected for so many reasons and the big one that came out of the research was housing prices and housing affordability."  Of the respondents, 80 per cent said that they had chosen their home based on what they could afford, meaning that many people don't actually like the neighbourhood they've ended up in.

					Beer is America's favourite alcoholic drink, survey finds
				</title>
				<description>
					 A recent survey of 1,000 adults from across the United States, has found that beer is now America's favourite alcoholic drink, as a result of a growing trend for craft brews.  Of the respondents, 44 per cent said that beer was their chosen drink in social situations, as opposed to 27 per cent who chose wine and 25 per cent who chose spirits.  A large proportion of the respondents said that they prefer to drink beer because of its taste, 'casual appeal' and because it's cool in warm weather.  The survey showed that American Ale was the most favoured style of beer, closely followed by Light Lager, Speciality Beer, English Pale Ale and Pilsener.  As for the craft beers, Samuel Adams Utopia was ranked in first place with runners up including Sierra Nevada: Pale Ale, Dogfish Head: 90 Minute IPA, Goose Island Bourbon County Stout and Anchor Brewing/Anchor Steam.  Rick Zich, President of Mr. Beer ' who conducted the survey ' said of the findings: 'It's clear that beer continues to gain in popularity, especially with the new flavours and styles being introduced by the craft beer revolution.'  The Mr. Beer survey presents very different findings to what was discovered during Gallup's survey in 2013.  The Gallup survey indicated that beer consumption among 18 to 29 year olds fell from 71 per cent during 1992 to 1994, to 41 per cent between 2012 and 2013.  According to the Brewers Association, craft brewers sold approximately $14.3 billion worth of beer in the year 2013, which was a 14 per cent increase from 2012.  93 per cent of those surveyed claimed that they had not brewed their own beer before, although, of the 7 per cent who had tried home-brewing beer, 91 per cent said that they enjoyed doing it.  Of those who said that they had brewed beer before, 62 per cent said that they liked to create their own flavour of beer.  Around 50 per cent of the home-brewers claimed that the beer they brewed themselves tasted just as nice as shop-bought beer.

					The research, which was carried out by Auto Express via a Freedom of Information request to the DVLA, found that rather than pay expensive premiums for being a new driver, over 50 per cent (21,148) of those banned within the first two years of passing their test took to the road uninsured.Over 10,000 drivers per year are banned just months after getting their licence.Motoring journal, Auto Express claim that most of those banned are young people.The study also found that from June 2010, the number of drivers banned within their first two years of driving was 40,481. Within that same time scale, new motorists only need to accrue six points to receive a ban.In over 50 per cent (21,148) of cases where a new driver received a ban, the punishable offence was driving with no insurance. The result of doing this is currently six points and a large fine. This number also includes cases of “fronting”, whereby a high risk motorist appears as the named driver on another person’s policy but is in fact, the main driver.However, due to / as a result of the employment of modern computerised checking systems, The Department of Transport claims that it is now easier than ever to spot an uninsured vehicle.This system uses cameras which record number plates, and checks them against a database of insurance details.According to the DVLA, the top 10 causes for receiving a ban are:1. Not having insurance cover - 21,148 bans2. Speeding - 7,220 bans3. Driver's identity (failure to give correct information) - 2,220 bans4. Vehicle control (which includes using a device whilst driving)- 1,766 bans5. Driving without due care and attention - 1,675 bans6. Motorway speeding - 1,249 bans7. Running red lights - 1,020 bans8. Defective tyres - 854 bans

					Half of customers will take advantage of Black Friday, research finds
				</title>
				<description>
					Recent research by Verdict has found that Black Friday price slashes will be taken advantage of by nearly 50 per cent of consumers.The study found that knowledge of the event, which has its origins in the USA, is now at its highest rate in the UK.Of those surveyed, females were most interested in Black Friday promotions, with 3 in 5 of female shoppers anticipating making a purchase.Verdict particularly expects sales to increase across a range of stores, including those focusing on electrical, footwear and clothing items.With 56 per cent of young consumers, aged 15 to 24, expecting to buy something this Black Friday, Verdict concludes that the event has a large appeal to youths. Among those aged 25-34, two thirds (59 per cent) expect to purchase something on Black Friday.On the other hand, consumers older than sixty-five were less likely to take advantage of the Black Friday sales, with just 28 per cent expected to buy an item.It was also found by Verdict that 25 per cent of consumers will start their Christmas shopping earlier this year.Positively for retailers, the research suggests that more money is going to be made this Black Friday than in previous years, and this will kick start higher spending for the Christmas period. According to the findings, a further £2.6 billion in sales is expected to be spent over this Christmas period in comparison to 2013, when £90.7 billion was spent.In 2013, £37.1 billion was spent on consumable goods and £53.6 billion was spent on non-consumable items.Of the total Christmas spend, £13 billion is anticipated to be spent online, with click and collect services expected to draw in £1.6 billion of sales.

In 2013 the dog food market was valued at £1.1billion, up on the valuation of £993 million in 2009, mainly due to rising prices.

					Survey Shows Uncertainty Around Energy Issues Among Brits
				</title>
				<description>
					 A recent survey of 2,058 British adults has revealed the nation might not know as much about energy issues as they think. Surprisingly, only a quarter (23%) of respondents were capable of identifying what scientists believe to be the quickest and most effective policy for meeting our energy needs (using less energy) via improving energy efficiency and minimising energy demand.

					Insurers Pay Out Over £450 Million a Day, Figures Show
				</title>
				<description>
					 Insurance companies, on average, pay out around £452 million every day to customers in the UK, according to the Association of British Insurers' (ABI) UK Insurance Key Facts 2014 publication.  By far, according to the research, pension and annuity payment companies pay out the largest sum per day, with the ABI's facts indicating the sector shells out £348 million every 24 hours.  Approximately £52 million is paid out per day to savers from investment and saving policies, with £17 million forked out to private motorists under motor insurance each day.  A hefty £11 million is paid out in property claims, of which £8.1 million is to homeowners and £3 million to business owners, and £8 million worth of payments go out to protection policies, such as critical illness, to help people cope with a serious illness, and life insurance policies to help dependants.  Other UK payments made every day include: £7 million to help private health insurance customers receive medical treatment, £7 million to business customers in commercial liability claims, such as employers' liability, and £1 million to travellers under travel insurance.  As a key contributor to the UK economy, insurers manage investments of £1.8 trillion - equivalent to one quarter (25%) of the UK's total net worth and equating to £70,000 for every UK household - and contribute nearly £12 billion in taxes to the UK government.  Otto Thoreson, ABI's Director General, said: "These remarkable statistics demonstrate the crucial role of the UK insurance industry. Millions of families and businesses rely on insurance products to help them cope with life's uncertainties and plan for the future.  "The severe floods earlier this year, when insurers handled over 18,500 claims and paid £450 million to flood victims, further highlighted how vital our industry is in everyday life.'

					Survey Outs England's Most and Least Popular Tourist Attractions
				</title>
				<description>
					 A recent VisitEngland survey has outed England's most and least popular tourist attractions of 2013.  The study, which included 1,279 of the nation's attractions, discovered that, with 6,701,036 visitors in 2013 alone, the British Museum was the most popular free tourist attraction, followed by the National Gallery (6,031,574) and the Natural History Museum (5,356,884).  Tate Modern (4,884,939), Brighton Pier (estimated 4,000,000), the Science Museum (3,316,000), the Victoria and Albert Museum (3,290,500), the National Portrait Gallery (2,014,636), Old Royal Naval College (1,788,712) and the British Library (1,475,382) made up the remaining top 10 free tourist attractions.  The Tower of London (2,894,698 visitors), St Paul's Cathedral (2,138,130) and Westminster Abbey (2,020,637) occupied the top three spots for the most visited paid for attractions, with Flamingo Land Theme Park and Zoo (1,521,901), Chester Zoo (1,413,936), Windermere Lake Cruises (1,411,995), the Royal Botanic Gardens (1,325,917), ZSL London Zoo (1,294,483), Stonehenge (1,241,296) and the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben (1,041,000) completing the top 10.  At the other end of the spectrum, with just six visits throughout the entire year, the Radar Tower in Essex was found to be the least popular tourist destination. The British in India Museum (70) was the second least popular attraction, with North Ings Farm Museum (98) the third.  St Andrew's Church (105 visitors), The Gissing Centre (118), Old Buckenham Mill (125), Astley Cheetham Art Gallery (147), Long Crendon Courthouse (153), Barton Ghost Walks (estimate 160) and Calverton Folk Museum (175), all made it into the survey's 10 least popular tourist attractions too.  James Berresford, Chief Executive of VisitEngland, told The Independent: 'This survey is open to all attractions to participate, from large attractions attracting thousands of visitors a year, to those with few visitors, but that have local appeal and importance, sometimes even just as well-known local landmarks. At the local level these attractions can make their own unique contribution to the local area, by providing interesting things for visitors to see and do.'

					Thai Internet Users Embrace Mobile Technology, Research Shows
				</title>
				<description>
					 According to recent research, Internet users in Thailand spend more than three hours a day glued to their mobile phone.  Mobile phones are used most frequently late evening, with more than half (52%) of Thai Internet users admitting to using their device at this time of day. The study's findings show that mobile phones are frequently used throughout the day by many: in bed when they wake up (17%); early morning (37%); during lunch (20%); late afternoon (47%); during dinner (17%) and in bed before they sleep (33%).  Collectively, Thai Internet users spend 3.1 hours a day on their mobile phone, compared to the 2.6 hours spent watching television, 1.5 hours dedicated to PC/laptop time and 0.7 hours used on tablets.  On a weekly basis, among Thai Internet users, accessing social network sites is the most popular form of digital activity, with weekly user figures for this type of recreation one fifth higher in Thailand (86%) than globally (66%).  Other popular digital activities for weekly Thai Internet users include: instant messaging or chatting - 62%; playing games via a mobile phone or tablet - 58%; reading news, sports or weather - 34%; watching recorded or on-demand videos online - 29%; researching products before purchasing - 21% and streaming music or radio stations online - 14%.  The study also uncovered that, for Thai Internet users, Facebook (87%) is the most popular social networking platform, ahead of YouTube (75%), Google+ (27%), Instagram (20%), Twitter (8%) and Hi5 (5%).  Line was elected as the most favoured instant messaging platform by two thirds (66%) of Thai Interntet users, surpassing Facebook Messenger (46%), WhatsApp (10%), Skype (10%), Tango (8%) and WeChat (6%).  Joe Webb, Head of Digital, APAC for TNS, said: 'For many people in Thailand, the mobile phone is the primary way to access the Internet.  'Low levels of PC ownership historically has meant that people have embraced everything the mobile Internet has to offer and we are seeing high levels of engagement with diverse services via mobile. In this environment, it's essential for brands to understand how to build a mobile-centric marketing strategy in order to succeed in the longer term.'

					Savings Accounts and ISAs Come with Complicated Rules, Research Shows
				</title>
				<description>
					 According to recent research carried out by Which?, around two fifths (39%) of instant-access and cash ISA savings accounts come with rules and restrictions that can prevent people from accessing their savings, or being eligible for the account in the first place.  The research, which assessed 285 instant-access and ISA accounts, uncovered that 32 of the 'instant-access' accounts measured limit the number of withdrawals you can make during the year.  Furthermore, nine out of the 18 highest paying instant-access or no-notice saving accounts reduced or stopped interest if the account holder made more than the set number of withdrawals per year. Banks such as Danske Bank, First Direct, HSBC and Santander do not allow any additional withdrawals without a penalty.  More than two thirds (68%) of the Which? members surveyed said they would expect to be able to withdraw their money from an account branded 'instant-access' whenever they liked, with zero restrictions.  Additionally, three of the top 16 highest rates on instant-access accounts (excluding cash ISAs) are only open to savers of a particular age.       Moreover, 10 of the 14 top-paying accounts, that have no other restrictions, are internet-only, so those who prefer to bank in person may lose out on the best rate.  Other rrestrictions uncovered include accounts that are limited to people who already have a current account with the provider, or who live within a certain area or postcode.  The research also discovered that three in 10 (29%) instant-access cash ISAs, including nine of the highest paying 15, do not allow you to transfer your previous year's ISA saving, resulting in customers missing out on higher rates of interest on those savings.  Richard Lloyd, Executive Director at Which?, said: 'People often assume 'instant-access' means there are no strings attached, but too often that's not the case and you can't always access your savings without being penalised. Savings providers should be more upfront about the terms and conditions of all their accounts and allow transfers in to new ISAs.'

					Fewer Pupils Smoking and Drinking than 10 Years Ago, Market Research Shows
				</title>
				<description>
					 The latest Smoking, Drinking and Drug Use among Young People in England survey has highlighted the changing trends among 11 to 15-year-olds. The findings cross both the education and health and social care sectors.  According to the research, when a pupil is in year seven at high school, in a class of 30 students, one in 30 will have tried smoking, however, this figure rises to almost half (13 out of 30) by the time the pupil has reached year 11.  In 2001, one in 10 young people said they smoked at least once a week, but, in 2013, this figure dropped to one in 30, highlighting an evident change in trend.  Furthermore, the survey discovered that 16% of young people who live with three or more smokers are regular smokers themselves, compared to just 2% of those who live in a non-smoking household.  Similarly to smoking, fewer young people are drinking alcohol now than they were 10 years ago, according to the research. In 2003, in a group of 30 pupils aged between 11 and 15, 18 of them will have tried an alcoholic drink, in 2013, however, this number dropped to 12.  When young people are in year seven, almost four fifths (77%) of those who drink, do so with their parents, with around one fifth (22%) consuming alcohol with their friends. By the time pupils reach year 11 though, just one sixth (15%) drink with their parents, with the remaining 85% boozing with their friends.  Gender-wise, typically, the majority of males (63%) consumed beer or cider. Girls, on the other hand, showed more variety, with a fairly even split between beer and cider (30%), wine (25%) and spirits (22%).  The final element of the study - drugs - uncovered that in a class of 30 students aged between 11 and 15, five of them will have tried drugs at least once. More than one quarter (28%) of the pupils questioned said they had been offered drugs at least once.  And, finally, around one in 10 (9%) of the survey's participants said they thought it was okay to try cannabis, three in 10 (31%) thought trying a cigarette was alright and more than half (53%) believed trying alcohol was acceptable.

					Retail Sector Continues to Post Solid Growth Figures, Survey Shows
				</title>
				<description>
					 The retail sector has continued to post solid growth figures in terms of sales volumes in the year to September, according to the Confederation of British Industries (CBI) monthly Distributive Trades Survey.  The study, which was conducted with 123 respondents, discovered that almost half (48%) of retailers said their sales volumes had increased, compared to less than one fifth (17%) who said they fell, giving it an overall balance of +31%.  Department stores (+100%) incurred the strongest growth, with footwear and leather (+61%) and furniture and carpet (+81%) retailers posting strong gains too.  Furthermore, one third (33%) of the retailers questioned said that their orders were up, compared to around one sixth (15%) who said they fell, giving this area a balance of +19%.  More than two fifths (42%) of the survey's participants said they expect sales volumes to increase in the year to October, while 16% said they predict they will fall.  In addition, six in 10 (60%) wholesalers said that sales volumes increased in the year to October, with less than one in 10 (8%) stating they had fallen, giving it a collective balance of +53% - the highest recorded since December 2012.  According to CBI's research, sales in the wholesale sector are expected to grow at a similar pace in the year to October.  And, finally, almost half (46%) of the motor traders questioned said that their sales volumes increased in the year to October, with slightly less (41%) saying they fell, giving the industry a balance marginally over neutral (+5%). As a result, sales volumes for motor traders are expected to fall next month to -20%.  Rain Newton-Smith, CBI's Director of Economics, said: "Solid growth continues on the high street, with most sectors doing decent business and department stores performing particularly well. However, the pace of growth in the grocery sector tailed off significantly compared with the previous survey.  "Retailers are expecting sales to grow again next month, but at a steadier pace."

					Majority of Brits Support ISIS Air Strikes, Market Research Survey Shows
				</title>
				<description>
					 A survey, which was released hours before the British government announced it would take part in air strikes against the Islamic State, has outlined the public's perception of the military action going on in Iraq.  Of the 1,972 British adults who were questioned between September 24-25, four fifths (81%) said they approved of the RAF dropping humanitarian supplies to people who have fled Islamic State/ISIS forces - 60+ year-olds (88%) were most likely to hold this view, and 18 to 24-year-olds (70%) were least likely. Less than one in 10 (7%) disapproved and around one sixth (15%) said they did not know.  Almost two thirds (64%) of the survey's participants said they approved of the US' air strikes to prevent the killing of the religious minorities and to protect American personnel in the region - men (74%) were one fifth more likely to approve this than women (54%). More than one fifth (22%) said they were unsure and 14% said they disapproved.  Furthermore, when asked if they approved or disapproved of the RAF taking part in the air strike operations against the Islamic State/ISIS, around three fifths (57%) said they were in favour - again, men (69%) were notably more likely to support the idea than women (45%). Almost one quarter (24%) said they disapproved and the remaining one fifth (19%) said they did not know.  And, finally, more than six in 10 (62%) said they supported the US' air strikes on Islamic State/ISIS forces and bases in Syria to weaken them and push them back - 60+ year-olds (70%) were the most likely to support the US' air strikes, and 18 to 24-year-olds (54%) were least likely. Almost one quarter (24%) said they were unsure when asked the question, and around one sixth (15%) said they disapproved of the strikes.  The research in this insight was conducted by YouGov.

					Charities Falling Behind in Modern Technology Advertising, Shows Research
				</title>
				<description>
					 Charities are still not exploiting advances in technology and continue to spend the bulk of their advertising budget on direct mail, new research has shown.  'Ad Infinitum', compiled by research consultancy nfpSynergy, also reveals that one in every £34 spent on advertising comes from charities and spending on TV continues to rise.  The research shows that charities spent £394m on advertising in 2013, nearly three fifths (61%) of which went on direct mail. Despite internet advertising being worth 46% of the total UK advertising market, charities continue to resist it. Internet ads represented just 2% of charities' advertising spend last year, a figure that has barely risen from the 1% recorded in 2006.  TV spending is one of the few areas consistently rising in charity advertising. It now occupies one fifth (20%) of their budget (77.1m), up from 7.8% (£23.2m) in 2006. It has traditionally occupied around 28% of overall spending in the UK market.  Other spending, such as radio (3%), press (9%) and outdoor (2%), has barely changed for charities and door drops are still way behind direct mail on just 2%. Charities also avoid the silver screen, with cinemas always representing their lowest spend on advertising.  Joe Saxton, nfpSynergy's Driver of Ideas, said: 'Charities represent around 3% of the advertising market, which is a sobering reminder for those who want to use awareness advertising. What is also interesting is that although charities are increasing their spending on TV, they continue to resist internet advertising when it continues to boom in other sectors. Is this because charities are way behind in terms of technology? Or is internet advertising an extravagant use of money for few benefits and charities are just more frugal?'

					Digital Advertising Revenues Remain Elevated for UK Publishers, Study Shows
				</title>
				<description>
					 Digital advertising research shows revenues from UK publishers were up 9.1% in the second quarter of 2014 compared with the same quarter in 2013, according to recent research conducted by Deloitte and the Association of Online Publishers (AOP).  Collectively, revenue generated from mobile and tablet subscriptions and advertising were the fastest growing revenue stream for digital publishers, jumping from 60.8% in quarter one (Q1) of 2014, to 69.2% in quarter two (Q2).  The research's findings suggest users lean towards a bigger screen experience for quality publications, with tablets making up three fifths (60%) of the total mobile revenues made in the second quarter of 2014.  With a 69.2% change, mobiles (including subscriptions) presented the steepest increase in advertising revenue growth between Q2 in 2013 and Q2 in 2014. Desktop video (23.2%), recruitment (18.7%), display (5.3%) and classified (9.5%) also witnessed notable advertising revenue growths over the same timeframe. Sponsorship (-14.2%) was the only area to incur negative growth figures.  Howard Davies, Media Partner at Deloitte, said: 'Publishers continue to embrace mobile as a platform and they are being rewarded with strong growth figures. We are seeing online publishers embracing flexible pricing options to make the most of this growing revenue stream.  'The growth rates in the core advertising categories reflect a maturing market. Whilst mobile advertising continues to grow strongly, the challenge remains to develop revenues at a higher level per impression.'  Furthermore, according to the AOP's Sentiment Index Report, which questioned AOP board members on how they anticipate the market to perform over the coming 12 months, three fifths (60%) of its respondents are more optimistic about the financial prospects for their company compared to three months ago - significantly higher than the average found throughout the wider industry.

					Survey Shows Oil and Gas Industry is Benefitting From Rising Salaries
				</title>
				<description>
					 The oil and gas sector has continued to benefit from increasing salaries over the last 12 months, according to Nigel Wright's 2014 UK Oil and Gas Salary Survey.  The research's results show that the average salary for oil and gas employees has now reached £80,000 - this ranges from up to £250,000 for senior management level workers down to £30,000 for non-management level staff.  The survey, which polled 1,000+ oil and gas workers in the first quarter of 2014, also discovered that more than half (55%) of its respondents were planning on changing jobs within the next year and a half, with around half of this figure having only been with their current employer for less than two years.  The comprehensive survey covered a range of oil and gas sub-sectors, including: engineering; supply chain; planning; health and safety; sales and marketing; business development; finance and human resources.  The study's findings uncovered evident gender imbalance, with just over one in 10 (12%) of the poll's 1,000+ respondents female. The research also discovered that three fifths (60%) of its sample were educated to degree level.  Furthermore, three quarters (75%) of the survey's participants said they received a company performance related bonus as part of their pay package, with two fifths (40%) stating they are given both company and personal bonuses.  According to the study's results, pay does somewhat relate to the amount of hours which are worked, with support staff found to work an average of 43 hours a week, compared to the 53 hours input on average by senior management level staff.  Anthony Broadhead, Managing Consultant for Nigel Wright's Energy Division, said: 'Skills shortages, not just in the UK, but in the global energy industry, are a factor in driving up wages as companies have to pay premium salaries to attract and retain staff.  'However, the industry is trying to address the skills issue through greater investment in apprenticeships and by retraining engineers from other industries, which can help increase the pool of available workers and better control costs.'

					Majority of Brits Support Labour's New Policies, Poll Shows
				</title>
				<description>
					 A recently conducted survey has uncovered the public's opinion on several of the Labour party's new policies.  Of the 2,141 British adults questioned, the majority (54%) said they would support the Labour party's initiative to freeze the level of child benefit until 2017 - one third (33%) said they 'tend to support' and one fifth (21%) said they 'strongly support.' In contrast, one third said they either 'tend to oppose' (21%) or 'strongly oppose' (12%).  When asked about the Labour Party's policy idea to means-test the winter fuel payment for pensioners so it no longer goes to the richest 5% of pensioners, three quarters (75%) of the survey's respondents said they were in favour of this, compared to less than one fifth (18%) who were against it.  Furthermore, around seven in 10 (72%) said they backed Labour's plans to introduce a new tax on properties worth over £2million - more than two fifths (42%) 'strongly supported' this, and three in 10 (30%) said they 'tend to support' it. At the other end of the spectrum, just under one fifth (18%) said they disapproved of this proposed policy - just over one in 10 (11%) stated they 'tend to oppose' and 7% 'strongly opposed.'  And, finally, when questioned about the Labour Party's strategy to increase the top rates of income tax to 50p for income over £150,000, almost two thirds (65%) said they supported the proposed action - almost two fifths (38%) said they 'strongly support' the plan, and more than one quarter (27%) said they 'tend to support it.' Conversely, just under one quarter (23%) said they opposed the idea - around one sixth (15%) said they 'tend to oppose' and less than one in 10 (8%) 'strongly opposed.'  This research in this insight was conducted by YouGov.

					Heathrow Airport Viewed Positively by Most, Market Research Shows
				</title>
				<description>
					 A recent study, conducted to gauge the public's opinion on Heathrow Airport, has discovered that the majority of respondents viewed the development positively.  Of the 9,670 people surveyed over a two-week period, a net total of three fifths (59%) said, based on what they have seen, read and heard, they had a positive impression of the airport. Around one third (34%) had a neutral outlook and just one in 20 (6%) perceived Heathrow Airport negatively.  Heathrow currently has two runways which, as it stands, operate at maximum capacity. The government is considering whether or not to allow the airport to build a third runway to increase its capacity and, when questioned on this, almost half (49%) of the survey's respondents were in favour - around three in 10 (28%) 'strongly supported' the plan and one fifth (21%) 'somewhat supported' it. A net total of almost one third (32%) said they opposed the proposed new development, with just under one fifth (18%) neither supporting or opposing.  Furthermore, almost two thirds (64%) of the study's respondents said their local MP opposing Heathrow's expansion would have no impact on whether or not they voted for that candidate in the next election. However, almost one fifth (17%) said it would make them more likely to vote for them at the next election - around one in 10 (9%) said 'a bit more likely' and 8% said 'much more likely.' Conversely, a similar percentage (18%) said their local MP opposing the initiative would make them less likely to vote for them - one in 10 (10%) said 'much less likely' and 8% said 'a bit less likely.'  Moreover, one quarter (25%) of the survey's participants said their local MP supporting Heathrow Airport's expansion would make them more likely to vote for them at the next election, compared to the 14% who said it would make them less likely to elect them. Six in 10 (60%) respondents said their local MP supporting the airport's plan would have no impact on their voting intention.

					Majority of MPs Think Generous Salaries are Unacceptable in Charities, Survey Shows
				</title>
				<description>
					 Almost half (47%) of MPs think it is unacceptable for charities to pay highly positioned members of staff salaries over £100,000 a year, compared to around one third (35%) who thought it was appropriate.  The survey also questioned 480 charity staff and discovered that, in contrast, almost half (47%) thought salaries in excess of £100,000 were acceptable, with around two fifths (38%) opposing the generous earnings.  When the question was changed and challenged MPs (154 collectively) and charity staff on salaries over £200,000 a year, seven in 10 (70%) charity staff and more than three quarters (77%) of MPs opposed. Around one sixth (16%) of charity workers and 13% of the MPs surveyed believed salaries over £200,000 were acceptable.  Furthermore, more than one quarter (27%) of the general public said they would be confident a charity would spend their donation well if they weren't paying members of staff over £100,000 per year.  The study also revealed that almost nine in 10 (89%) Conservative MPs think it is acceptable for charities to provide frontline services instead of the government, with just over half (56%) of Labour MPs concurring. Just one in 20 (5%) Conservative MPs opposed this approach, compared to the three in 10 (30%) Labour MPs who disagreed.  In addition, almost half (46%) of charity workers think that charities do a better job than the government at delivering public services, with more than two fifths (43%) in favour of more public services being delivered by charities.  And, finally, the survey's findings showed that around one fifth (18%) of Conservative MPs think charities should pay its trustees, compared to more than one third (36%) of Labour MPs. More than half (51%) of the general public are against this idea.  Tim Harrison, nfpsynergy's Head of Professional Audiences, said: 'With an election less than nine months away, these findings give us an insight into the role MPs believe charities will play in the next Parliament. With a Conservative majority, we can certainly expect to see charities being offered more frontline service contracts. It is a policy that plays well with the sector and we can expect to see it in the Conservative manifesto.'

					MPs Split on Whether Charities Should Challenge Government, Study Shows
				</title>
				<description>
					 A recent study has shown political divide when it comes to whether or not charities should be allowed to challenge the government and political parties.  The survey, which questioned 154 MPs, discovered that around two fifths of Conservative MPs think it is acceptable for charities to challenge the policies of the government, compared to the 39% who said it was unacceptable.  Furthermore, just less than two fifths (37%) of Conservative MPs felt that charities should be able to challenge the policies of political parties, with almost half (46%) opposing this idea. When asked the same question for state-funded charities, just one sixth (16%) were in favour of them challenging political parties' policies, compared to the seven in 10 (71%) who were against it.  In contrast, almost nine in 10 (86%) Labour MPs were in favour of charities challenging the government and political parties, with around three quarters (73%) supporting the idea of state-funded charities challenging the government too.  The survey's findings highlighted that MPs were much more comfortable with charities getting involved by holding parliamentary receptions - 91% of Conservative participants and 89% of Labour respondents were in favour of this.  And, finally, the majority of MPs said they were happy with charities highlighting the effects of a policy on their beneficiaries. However, Labour MPs (86%) were around one fifth more likely to support this that Conservative MPs (68%).  Tim Harrison, nfpsynergy's Head of Professional Audiences, said: 'Although Labour MPs are unsurprisingly very supportive when in Opposition, there is a fine line that Conservative MPs do not want to see charities cross. Any sight of challenging government policy or entering party politics is not acceptable to them.  'These are the rather narrow confines within which charities must operate when interacting with the current coalition government. It again highlights the need for neutral, evidence-based campaigns that can be shown to be based on fact, not politics.'

					Malaysians Becoming Increasingly Socially Engaged, Study Shows
				</title>
				<description>
					 According to recent research, Malaysians have become one of the most socially engaged markets in the world.  According to the study's findings, more than three fifths (62%) of Internet users in Malaysia access their social media accounts on a daily basis - one fifth more than the global average (42%). In addition, that majority of Malaysians (52%) said they use instant messaging every day.  For more than one third of Malaysians, their mobile phone is the first face they see in the morning, with 35% of the survey's respondents admitting they reach for their mobile phone before they even get out of bed, with a similar percentage (34%) saying they use their phone at night, in bed, before they go to sleep.  This handset obsession equates to around four and a half hours of leisure time for Internet users in Malaysia spent on their phone every day.  Around three fifths (59%) of Malaysian Internet users said they spend most of their time on social media channels, with a similar proportion (58%) frequently using their mobile phone to send personal emails.  The survey's findings discovered that almost nine in 10 (88%) Malaysian Internet users visit Facebook weekly, with almost half (48%) electing it their favourite social platform. In terms of weekly users, YouTube (76%), WhatsApp (72%), Facebook Messenger (71%), WeChat (61%) and Google+ (52%) also featured highly among Malaysian Internet users' preferred channels. Other platforms with reasonable weekly user levels include: Line (43%), Instagram (36%), Skype (36%), Twitter (30%), Yahoo! Messenger (30%), Viber (21%), LinkedIn (16%), Tumblr (16%) and Snapchat (12%).  Social media isn't the only reason Malaysians go online though, more than three fifths (62%) use the Internet to watch on-demand videos, with almost half (47%) streaming music or radio every week and just over two fifths (44%) watching paid TV or movies online every week.

					Chemical Industry Embracing Sustainability, Study Shows
				</title>
				<description>
					 The majority of companies in the chemical industry have embraced sustainability, according to a recent survey conducted by Genomatica and ICIS.  Of the 958 respondents who were included in the study, three in 10 (31%) said promoting or marketing sustainable products were in the their top business priorities in terms of sustainability, with around one fifth (18%) stating taking an active lead on sustainability issues and engaging sustainability-conscious customers at a business level were among their key considerations.  A further one in 10 (10%) said the ability to respond to questions about their position on sustainability was a top business priority, with marginally less (9%) saying they would be focusing on raising the public profile of sustainability.  However, just over one in 10 (11%) said sustainability was not a priority in their company. The remaining 2% responded with 'other.'  When questioned on the level of interest they had received from customers in sustainably produced chemicals, around two fifths (44%) said interest levels had 'stayed the same.' One quarter (26%) stated they were 'slightly greater now' and one in 10 (10%) said interest levels for sustainably produced chemicals were 'much greater now.' However, one fifth announced interest levels had decreased - 13% said they were 'slightly lower now' and 7% said 'much lower now.'  Furthermore, three in 10 (31%) of the companies surveyed said they were already offering more sustainable versions of chemicals, a further one in seven (14%) plan to offer more sustainable products within the next year and more than one quarter (27%) intend to offer more sustainable versions in the next one to two years. In contrast, 13% said they do not plan to offer more sustainable versions, with the remaining one sixth (16%) unsure.

					Sports and Energy Drink Market Research Shows Brits Use Them To Combat Tiredness
				</title>
				<description>
					 According to recent research, the majority of Britons (54%) say they often feel tired, with this figure rising to three fifths (60%) for women alone.  Furthermore, three quarters (75%) of Brits said they are more fun to be around when they are feeling energetic, with almost two thirds (64%) admitting they get irritated easily when they're feeling tired.  It appears many Brits have tried to combat their frequent tiredness with sports and energy drinks, with six in 10 (61%) having consumed a sports drink and almost half (46%) knocking back an energy drink in the past year.  When it comes to energy drinks, however, almost eight in 10 (77%) said they would like clearer information on what the different ingredients in the energy drinks do, and around two fifths (43%) said they would be interested in trying energy drinks made with all natural ingredients in the future.  For sports drinks, around seven in 10 (72%) would like to see clearer information on the packaging detailing what each ingredient in the sports drink does, and more than two fifths (44%) would also be interested in sampling all natural ingredient versions.  Around three fifths (62%) of the Brits surveyed said it would be a good move by supermarkets to impose age limits on the purchase of energy drinks, with more than two thirds (69%) admitting it is hard to know what is a safe amount of energy drinks to consumer per day.  In addition, one fifth (21%) of the study's participants believe sports drinks are only beneficial to athletes, and a further seven in 10 (68%) said they find it hard to tell if sports drinks actually work.  And, finally, according to the survey's findings, the majority of Brits consume sports and energy drinks at home.  David Zhang, Research Analyst at Mintel, said: 'The high proportion of consumers wanting to understand how energy drink ingredients work offers a way for brands to differentiate themselves in the market by highlighting the ingredients used. Also, as functional claims are highly regulated, this interest suggests scope for brands to move the focus onto the various ingredients or the unique formula of their drinks in their marketing campaigns.'

					Market Research Survey Outlines Top Reasons for Buying a New Car
				</title>
				<description>
					 According to recent research, the most common reason for purchasing a new car among drivers in the UK is the desire to drive something 'new' or 'different.'  Of the 1,000+ UK drivers surveyed, almost half (45%) said wanting to 'drive something new or different' was the reason behind buying a new car, despite recent rising inflation and slower wage growth.  Drivers in Yorkshire were most likely to change their car for something 'new' and 'different', with almost three fifths (57%) of drivers in this region giving this as a reason behind their decision to buy a new car.  For two fifths (43%) of the survey's respondents, the main reason behind purchasing a new car was a genuine need to replace a vehicle that was considered to be beyond economical repair.  Around three in 10 (31%) stated cutting the running costs of their car and saving money was the driving force behind their decision to invest in a new vehicle. Over 55's (36%) were most likely to cite this as a reason, compared to just one fifth (20%) of 18 to 24-year-olds.  Furthermore, according to the study's findings, around two fifths (37%) of UK drivers replace their car every five years, with around one fifth (19%) upgrading their vehicle every two years. Around one sixth (15%) said they changed motors every eight years, one in 10 (10%) said every 10 years and one fifth (20%) said they had no fixed car-buying pattern.  Younger drivers, aged between 18 and 24, change their vehicle most regularly with almost half (47%) doing so every two years. Approximately one quarter of the drivers in Wales (26%) and Scotland (23%) change cars more regularly than anyone else - every two years.  Andrew Ballard, Principal Consultant at Experian Automotive, said: 'A reluctance to take on additional financial responsibilities has reflected the mood among car buyers for a long time, but we have seen both used and new cars sales grow significantly over the past year.  While running costs still play a role, a desire for change came out as a bigger driver.  For the motor industry, this research highlights the need to understand who is looking to change, and for what reasons, so that they can better meet the needs of those car buyers and create lasting relationships.  'Factors such as cutting current costs down or reluctance to take on additional financial responsibilities reflect the current mood among a growing number of car buyers.'

					Media Professionals Consume Most Caffeine, Market Research Finds
				</title>
				<description>
					 A recent survey has found that journalists and media staff sit in the profession that consumes the highest amount of caffeine.  The study suggests that those in more stressful jobs consume more caffeine to get them through the day, with the highest consumers drinking more than four cups during a single day.  According to Pressat's survey, the top 10 professions for coffee drinking are:  1.    Journalists and media staff 2.    Police officers 3.    Teachers 4.    Plumbers and trade workers 5.    Nurses and medical staff 6.    Company executives 7.    Telesales 8.    IT technical support 9.    Retail staff 10.  Drivers  Of the 10,000 professionals surveyed, around five sixths (85%) admitted they drink at least three cups of coffee per working day, with seven in 10 (70%) stating their working ability would be inhibited without their daily dose of caffeine.  Furthermore, according to the survey's findings, six in 10 (62%) of its respondents were not aware of the health risks, such as strokes, anxiety and heart problems, drinking copious amounts of coffee can cause.  In addition, it was found that men drink marginally more coffee than women.  Peter Rogers, Professor of Biological Psychology and Bristol University and an industry expert on caffeine, told the Daily Mail: 'People who consume caffeine regularly will become dependent on it - if you take caffeine away from them, they will function below par.  'They just don't function normally without the drug on board. If it's your first tea or coffee of the day, it gets you back to normal, but beyond that you don't get much more of a kick.'

					Survey Shows Small Businesses are More Confident Than Ever
				</title>
				<description>
					 Small businesses in the UK are more confident than ever, according to the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) Small Business Index.  For the third quarter of 2014, the FSB Index reached +41 points - the first time sentiment has reached this level with every sector recording a positive outlook for the upcoming three months.  Of the 2,137 small businesses who responded to the survey, six in 10 (61%) said they expected to grow in the forthcoming three months, with around one in 10 (11%) predicting a rapid growth spurt over the same period of time. This is now the seventh consecutive year small businesses have been optimistic about their outlook.  Regionally, the South East is the most positive area in the UK with a confidence score of +52 points, and in the latest edition of the Index the North East put down the greatest gains compared to a year ago.  One third (33%) of the businesses surveyed expect their turnover to grow in the next quarter and almost one fifth (17%) expect profits to rise too.  Financial services remain the most confident sector (+62), while most improvement was witnessed in health and social work, and in the hospitality industry.  Recruitment intentions are at an all-time high, with a net balance of +5% of small businesses having increased their staff-count in the third quarter of 2014 - a trend that is predicted to continue in the next quarter too.  John Allan, National Chairman of the Federation of Small Businesses, said: "We're seeing record breaking confidence from our members which suggests small firms will continue to spearhead the UK's recovery. We want policy makers to lock in this optimism and continue to back the self employed and small businesses. As we head in to party conference season, we'll be looking to all the political parties to spell out what they will do to encourage job creation, investment and reward entrepreneurs in the next Parliament."

					Fewer Americans Avoiding Health Insurance, Survey Finds
				</title>
				<description>
					 The number of Americans without health insurance has fallen, according to the National Health Interview Survey.  The study, which was conducted with 27,000 Americans, discovered that in the first quarter of 2014, 13.1% (41 million) of its respondents were not covered by health insurance - an 8% decline from the figures retrieved from the first quarter of 2013.  Children under the age of 18 (6.6%) were less likely to be without health insurance than 18 to 64-year-olds (18.4%).  Furthermore, almost one quarter (24.3%) of the study's 18 to 64-year-old respondents admitted they had been uninsured for at least part of the year, with this figure dropping to one in 10 (10.4%) for participants under 18.  Less than one sixth (14%) of 18 to 64-year-olds said they had been uninsured for more than a year, with significantly less under-18's (3.4%) confessing the same.  The study also highlighted that private coverage was more popular among 18 to 64-year-olds (65.6%) than under-18's (51.7%), with public coverage showing reversed results - around two fifths (43%) of under-18's had public coverage, compared to 17.1% of 18 to 64-year-olds.  Larry Levitt, a director at the Program for the Study of Health Reform and Private Insurance at the Kaiser Family Foundation, said: 'Regardless of what you think of the [Affordable Care Act], there should be no doubt at this point that the law is increasing the number of people insured.'  He added that this survey's findings 'dramatically understate the effect' of the law.

					Identity Should Remain Anonymous in Sexual Abuse Trials Unless Guilty, Brits Say
				</title>
				<description>
					 According to a recent survey, the majority of Britons believe people who are accused of sexual abuse crimes should only have their identity revealed if they are found to be guilty.  Of the 1,704 British adults questioned, six in 10 (61%) agreed with the above statement - age and gender appeared to have little effect on people's views.  Around one quarter (26%) said people who are accused of sexual abuse crimes should have their identity revealed only if they are charged - 18 to 24-year-olds (18%) were least likely to agree with this, and 60+ year-olds (31%) were most likely to concur.  Furthermore, less than one in 10 (7%) thought people who are accused of sexual abuse crimes should have their identity revealed once they are accused - UKIP voters (10%) and 60+ year-olds (11%) were most likely to hold this view.  One in 20 (5%) responded by saying they 'don't know,' and 1% said people who are accused of sexual abuse crimes should never have their identity revealed - Liberal Democrat voters (3%) and Scottish residents (3%) were slightly more inclined to agree with this statement.  When questioned about the BBC's recent coverage of police officers searching Cliff Richard's home following sexual abuse allegations made against him, more than seven in 10 (72%) of the survey's respondents said they were wrong to broadcast this coverage. Around one sixth (15%) said the BBC were right to air the coverage and 13% said they did not know.  The research in this insight was conducted by YouGov.

					Unwanted Sexual Advances Common in Universities, Market Research Finds
				</title>
				<description>
					 One in four university students have experienced unwelcome sexual advances - defined as inappropriate touching and groping - according to the National Student Union's (NUS) survey.  For women alone, however, this figure rose to almost two fifths (37%).  The study, which was conducted with 2,000 male and female university students, also revealed that around one third of its participants said they had received unwanted sexual comments about their body - this was notably higher for women (37%) than men (12%).  Just under one third of the survey's respondents stated they had witnessed a student being harassed based on their gender, with two thirds admitting they had been a bystander to unwanted sexual comments.  Three quarters (75%) of the students questioned said they had heard of online communities such as 'Unilad' and 'Lad Bible', with more than six in 10 (63%) of the survey's female respondents putting the misrepresentation of women down to such sites.  More than half of the study's participants believed women students were more vulnerable than men.  And, finally, six in 10 (60%) students said they did not know of any codes of conduct held by the university they attend which forbid or deter sexual conversations, sexual comments, unwelcome sexual advances, group intimidation and verbal harassment.  Toni Pearce, NUS President, said: 'These stats show that harassment is rife on campus, but we still keep hearing from universities that there is no fear, no intimidation, no problem - well this new research says otherwise.  'Our Lad Culture National Strategy Team that includes students, students unions, and a range of external stakeholders, is launching a pilot scheme for five to 10 UK unions that will assess what lad culture looks like on their campus, and what is currently in place to tackle lad culture.'

					Survey Shows Majority of Midwestern Americans Support Renewable Energy
				</title>
				<description>
					 According to a recent survey, the majority of Midwestern-based Americans believe that renewable energy, such as wind and solar power, is a reliable, affordable option that creates a steady stream of good jobs.  The study, which was conducted with 2,477 residents from Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio and Wisconsin, discovered that three in 10 (29%) people thought immediate action needed to be taken to tackle global warming, with marginally less (28%) believing 'some action' should be taken. One quarter (25%) said not enough is known about global warming and that more research is required before action is taken, and 15% said concern about global warming is unwarranted.  Collectively, three in 10 (30%) of the survey's participants agreed their state currently generates more electricity than it can use, with more than one third (36%) disagreeing and the remaining 34% unsure. Ohio residents were most likely to agree with this statement and Michigan citizens were more inclined to disagree.  Furthermore, the overwhelming majority (95%) of participants said they would support increasing use of energy efficiency to help meet their state's future needs - three quarters (76%) strongly supported this and one fifth (19%) somewhat supported.  Most respondents also supported the increasing use of solar energy (91%), wind energy (87%), natural gas (88%), hydropower (84%), coal (55%), nuclear (54%) and biomass (50%).  In addition, almost four fifths (79%) of the survey's respondents rejected the idea that wind turbines were harmful to public health - people in Iowa (87%) were most likely to think turbines were not harmful, with residents in Wisconsin (21%) least likely to agree.  And, finally, participants thought the below phrases described renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar power, well:  bull;    Allow us to be more self-reliant for energy - 86% bull;    Will help to make our energy supply more secure - 81% bull;    Reliable - 80% bull;    An increasing source of good jobs - 75% bull;    Affordable - 72% bull;    The best power source for our state - 69% bull;    Increasingly able to replace coal and fossil fuels - 63%  (NB: Percentage relates to the number of participants who believe the statement describes renewable energy either 'very well' or 'somewhat well.')  The research in this study was conducted by Public Opinion Strategies and Fairbank, Maslin, Maullin, Metz  Associates.

					Majority of Brits aged Over 50 Want Their Funeral to be a Celebration, Survey Finds
				</title>
				<description>
					 According to recent research, the majority of Britons aged over 50 like the idea of a funeral being a celebration of their life as opposed to the traditional, more solemn, ceremony.  Almost seven in 10 (68%) preferred the idea of their funeral being more of a celebration, with this figure rising to more than three quarters (76%) for women aged 50 to 64.  Around two thirds (64%) of Brits aged 50+ said they are happy to talk about the type of funeral they desire , however, 13% of 75+ year-olds said they found this type of subject awkward to discuss. Collectively, one fifth (21%) said they wouldn't want to talk about their funeral arrangements because it is a private matter.  The average cost of a basic funeral in the UK currently stands at £3,609, with the market forecast to be worth over £2billion in 2014 - up half a billion from 2009's figure (£1.5billion).  Furthermore, one third of the Britons included in Mintel's survey said they had been solely or mainly responsible for organising a funeral in the last 10 years, with around one sixth (17%) having helped out or given advice. However, more than half (53%) have not been involved in any aspect of a funeral arrangement in the past 10 years.  Six in 10 (60%) Brits aged 50+ said they had prepared a will for when they pass away, with this sum rising to almost eight in 10 (78%) for participants aged 75+.  Around one fifth (17%) of the study's participants said they had not taken any steps to prepare for their funeral, compared to the one quarter (26%) who have put four or more steps in place, and the one sixth (16%) who have a written set of funeral arrangements in place.  When it comes to financing their funeral, half (49%) of the survey's respondents said all or part of the cost of their funeral would be met from the value of their estate. Three in 10 (30%) said they had set aside savings with their funeral in mind, and more than one quarter (28%) said they have a whole-of-life insurance plan that will cover the costs of their funeral.

					Study Ranks Countries To Find Cheapest Country for Public Transport
				</title>
				<description>
					 South Africa offers the cheapest overall public transport, according to GoEuro's Worldwide Transportation Price Index.  Train, bus and flight information were compared from 51 countries, across five continents. The study analysed the cheapest connections between the two most populous cities in each of the countries, taking into account factors such as distance, scheduling and taxes.  Each country was then ranked based on their average price per 100km for each transportation mode.  South Africa came out top of the lot with the average bus journey costing $3.67/100km, train journey $1.88/100km and flight $11.63/100km. Albania, Malaysia, Thailand and Ukraine occupied the remaining top five places.  At the other end of the spectrum, Switzerland was discovered to be the most expensive country for public transport, charging, on average, $18.67/100km for a bus journey, $38.28/100km for a train journey and $125.07/100km for a flight. Austria, Belgium, Israel and Denmark were the next most expensive nations.  Out of the 51 countries measured, the United Kingdom ranked as the 39th most pricey country for public transport.  Egypt ($1.88/100km), Ukraine ($3.07/100km) and Thailand ($3.11/100km) were the cheapest countries for bus fares, with the Netherlands ($28.58/100km), Austria ($23.45/100km) and Norway ($21.61/100km) the dearest.  Air travel was lowest-priced in India ($10.36/100km), Malaysia ($11.43/100km) and South Africa ($11.63/100km), and most costly in Finland ($138.90/100km), Switzerland ($125.07/100km) and Lithuania ($116.72/100km).

					Almost One Third of Tenants Dissatisfied with their Landlord, Market Research Reveals
				</title>
				<description>
					 More than three in 10 tenants are dissatisfied with their landlord, according to the Housing Partners' 2014 Big Tenant Survey.  Of the 61,000 tenants questioned, around one sixth (17.5%) said they were 'dissatisfied' with their landlord, and 13.6% said they were 'very dissatisfied.'  In comparison, almost three in 10 (28.5%) said they were 'satisfied' and 15.4% said they were 'very satisfied.' The remaining one quarter (25%) were neutral.  When asked about their satisfaction around specific areas, 28% of the survey's respondents said they were dissatisfied with the quality of their homes, one quarter (24%) were unhappy with their area as a place to live and one fifth (22%) said they were not proud of their home - tenants in the North West (60%), generally, were prouder of their homes than people in Greater London (49%).  Furthermore, just under one third of the tenants questioned did not think that their rent represented value for money.  The study also highlighted that landlords are not communicating well enough with their tenants. More than two fifths (44%) of the survey's respondents were dissatisfied with how their landlord listened to them and acted upon their views - one quarter (24%) were 'very dissatisfied' and one fifth (20%) were 'dissatisfied.' Around three in 10 (31.9%) were either 'satisfied' or 'very satisfied.'  In addition, almost half (46.8%) of the tenants included in the survey do not believe their tenant cares about them or their family.  And, finally, just one quarter (25%) of the study's participants said they fully understood the current welfare reforms, and more than two fifths (42%) of those receiving full housing benefits said they were anxious about having their rent paid straight to them instead of their landlord.  Richard Blundell, CEO of Housing Partners, spoke: 'The most important opinions in our sector belong to tenants. We believe that by giving a voice to the UK's millions of social housing residents, we can establish better channels of communication between them, their Landlords and Government, and help to restore the all-important trust in that relationship.'

					Survey Shows Lack of Skills in the Engineering Industry
				</title>
				<description>
					 Due to a lack of skills in the engineering industry, MPs across the country are being asked to urge employers in their constituencies to work with schools and colleges to encourage more young people to choose a career in engineering as part of the wider STEM curriculum.  The drive to inspire more people to become engineers comes after the Institution of Engineering and Technology's (IET) 2014 Engineering and Technology Skills and Demand in Industry survey revealed that more than half (53%) of employers believe they should get more involved with schools, colleges and universities to help change the perception of engineering among young people.  IET's report also highlighted a consistently high demand for engineers and that, however, more than half of employers are finding it difficult to recruit the staff they need for their businesses to expand.  Furthermore, according to the study's results, just one in 20 (6%) engineers are female, indicating an evident gender imbalance within the industry.  Three fifths (59%) of engineering companies indicated concerns that a shortage of engineers would be a threat to their business, and more than two fifths (44%) of engineering, IT and technical recruits do not meet their employer's expected levels of skills.  According to Nigel Fine, IET's Chief Executive, the engineering industry will need 87,000 new engineers a year for the next decade, highlighting the trade's need for upcoming talent.  Fine added: 'It is encouraging to see from our survey that over half of engineering employers recognise that they have a crucial role to play here - as well as in helping to shape the curriculum so that young people enter the world of work with the skills that employers want.  'MPs are ideally placed to help us capitalise on this opportunity by helping to get more employers involved with the education system at a local level so that we produce a talent pipeline that can sustain a thriving UK economy.'

					UK Younger Generation Smartphone Users Glued to Their Devices, Study Shows
				</title>
				<description>
					 According to a recent survey, around one third of smartphone users check their device within five minutes of waking up.  The study, which questioned 4,000 UK adults in May this year, discovered that this figure rose to over two thirds (67%) for 18 to 24-year-olds who look at their smartphone within 15 minutes of rising.  Collectively, most smartphone owners check their phone when they first wake to look at their text messages (33%), emails (25%) and social networking sites (14%).  According to the study, smartphone users aren't just glued to their phone in the morning either, with around one in six of us checking them more than 50 times a day. Checking their device an average of 53 times a day, 18 to 24-year-olds own the tag as most intensive users - this figure increases to more than 100 times per day for 13% of the age category.  Older generations (65 to 75-year olds), in comparison, look at their phone, on average, 13 times a day - for more than half (56%) this total is less than 10 times per day.  When asked about why they might change their mobile network provider in the future, one fifth (20%) of the survey's respondents said network quality for internet use, compared to around one sixth (16%) who said network quality for phone calls.  Furthermore, email and social networks are now the top applications which have been used more since smartphones adopted 4G, with just one fifth (20%) using 4G to watch videos - a significant decrease on 2013's figure (49%).  Paul Lee, Head of Technology, Media and Telecommunications Research at Deloitte, said: 'The smartphone has rapidly become the device that many of us cannot live without. The demand for uninterrupted internet connectivity will increase as what we do with our phones becomes ever more important. Mobile operators need to ensure their networks can support these critical devices.'

					UK Construction Industry Posts Strong Growth Across the Board
				</title>
				<description>
					 The UK construction industry sustained strong growth in all three categories last month (August), according to Markit/CIPS UK Construction Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI).  Overall, the industry's PMI stood at 64.0 in August - up by 1.6 on the previous month's figure (62.4) and the fastest overall increase in output levels since January. August's strong PMI also represented the second strongest rate of output expansion since the industry's pre-recession peak in August 2007.  The construction industry has now boasted a PMI well above 50.0 (which signals no change) for several consecutive months.  Despite its expansion levelling off to a three-month low, residential construction posted the fastest rise in activity, ahead of civil engineering and commercial construction.  Civil engineering activity increased at the strongest pace since March, whilst the growth of commercial construction was also close to its fastest since the summer of 2007.  Elevated levels of incoming new work in August extended the industry's current period of continuous new business growth to 16 months - many put this down to improved economic conditions and a corresponding rise in clients' willingness to commit to new construction projects. As a result, almost three fifths (59%) of UK construction firms predict a rise in business activity over the forthcoming year, with just 7% anticipating a decline.  In July, the survey reported record levels of job creation, and August's strong reading was only slightly lower than this.  Furthermore, sub-contractor usage picked up sharply and at the fastest rate since the survey began in April, 1997. This, in turn, contributed to a survey-record drop in sub-contractor availability and a much steeper increase in rates charged by sub- contractors.  David Noble, Group Chief Executive Officer at the Chartered Institute of Purchasing  Supply, said:  'The resurgence in construction has entrenched itself after a summer of blistering growth but builders should prepare for growing pains this autumn as the sector labours to recover lost capacity. Buoyed particularly by investment into civil works, construction output grew at the fastest pace for seven months in August, whilst activity continued to expand in housing and commercial construction. Confidence for the next 12 months also remained high as businesses continue to invest for the future.'

					Majority of Britons Concerned About Food Fraud, Survey Finds
				</title>
				<description>
					 The majority of Britons are concerned about food fraud - when food is deliberately placed on the market, for financial gain, with the intention of deceiving the consumer - a recent study has found.  Almost three quarters (73%) of the survey's 2,010-strong sample said they were either very concerned (43%) or fairly concerned (30%) about the recycling of animal by-products back into the food chain. Just one in 20 (6%) said they were not concerned about this - 2% said not at all concerned and 4% said not very concerned.  Similarly, more than seven in 10 (73%) said they were worried about the packaging and selling of beef and poultry with an unknown origin - around two fifths (39%) said very concerned and one third (34%) said fairly concerned. Marginally less than one in 10 (9%) stated they were not at all (3%) or not very (6%) concerned.  Just over two thirds (67%) of Britons said they were anxious of products knowingly being sold when they are past their 'use by' date - 18 to 24-year-olds (42%) were much less likely to be concerned over this, with people aged 65+ (78%) most likely to be apprehensive. One in 10 (10%) participants said they were not concerned about products' 'use by' date.  Furthermore, 65% of the survey's respondents said they felt uneasy about products being substituted with a cheaper alternative, for example, farmed salmon sold as wild - around three in 10 (31%) said they were very concerned, and more than one third (35%) said they were fairly concerned. One in 10 (10%) said they were not worried about this area of food fraud.  More than two thirds (68%) admitted they were anxious about companies making false statements about the source of ingredients, i.e. their geographic, plant or animal origin, compared to just 8% who said they were not concerned.  And, finally, seven in 10 (70%) participants said they were either very concerned (39%) or fairly concerned (31%) about counterfeit products being sold on the high street, for example, alcoholic spirits or washing detergent. One in 10 (10%) said they were not troubled by this - 3% said not at all concerned and 7% said not very concerned.  The research in this study was conducted by Populus.

					Britons See Seat Reclining During Daytime Flights as Unacceptable, Survey Shows
				</title>
				<description>
					 The majority of Britons think it is unacceptable for a person to recline their seat during a daytime aeroplane flight.  The study, which questioned 1,704 Brits, discovered that more than half (53%) of respondents thought daytime seat reclining was unacceptable etiquette - 60+ year-olds (62%) were most likely to hold this view, and 18 to 24-year-olds (43%) were least likely.  At the other end of the spectrum, around one quarter (27%) said it was acceptable, with the remaining one fifth (20%) unsure.  When it came to overnight flights, however, more than seven in 10 (72%) said seat reclining was acceptable etiquette, but around one sixth (16%) still deemed it as unacceptable.  A similar study conducted on 1,000 US adults received different results. According to the survey's findings, 55% of Americans think seat reclining during daytime flights is acceptable, compared to the less than one in four (24%) who said it was unacceptable.  Almost eight in 10 (78%) Americans viewed seat reclining during an overnight flight as acceptable, with less than one in 10 (9%) viewing it as inappropriate etiquette.  When asked about 'Knee Defender' - a company which sells devices preventing people sat in front of you from reclining their seat - almost two thirds (65%) of US respondents said it was unacceptable aeroplane etiquette to use such a product - around one sixth (16%) said it was acceptable.  Furthermore, around one third (34%) said having someone in front of them recline their seat would be a bigger inconvenience during a daytime flight, compared to the two fifths (43%) who said not being able to recline their own seat would be a bigger nuisance.  And, finally, seven in 10 (70%) Americans said being unable to recline their own seat would be the bigger annoyance when sitting through an overnight flight, with less than one sixth (15%) citing someone in front of them reclining their seat.  The research in this study was conducted by YouGov.

					London Most Expensive City for Cultural Activities, Research Shows
				</title>
				<description>
					 According to research conducted by Post Office Travel Money, London is the most expensive city in Europe for cultural activities.  England's capital surpassed 11 of Europe's major cities despite offering free entry to some of its museums and art galleries, and was discovered to be pricier than Paris for attractions such as the ballet and opera.  The survey calculated the costs for each city based on two people visiting a museum, art gallery, heritage site, ballet, opera and classical concert, and London came out on top charging a hefty £256. Vienna (£223), Amsterdam (£223), Barcelona (£242) and Paris (£252) also racked up steep price tags for their cultural packages.  Warsaw offered the best value package at just £70, with Budapest (£80), Prague (£93) and Dublin (£102) also offering reasonable bundles.  Despite charging in excess of £250 for several cultural activities, people visiting London are in a better place in 2014 than than they were back in 2009, when the same package totalled £326 - 21% more than the survey's most recent figure.  Rome (-36.1%) and Vienna (-27.3%) incurred steeper reductions to their cultural costs than London since 2009, with Amsterdam bearing the brunt of the highest increase (+37.3%).  The survey identified the three best value choices and the most expensive for each of the cultural attractions. Only Barcelona, Amsterdam, Moscow and Vienna failed to feature as a best value option in any category.

					Market Research Shows More People Are Volunteering in Britain
				</title>
				<description>
					 New research has shown that the number of people sacrificing their time to volunteer has reached its highest level in 10 years.  The report - 'The New Alchemy' - found that over one quarter (26%) of the British public had given time in the last three months to volunteer. This figure has only been reached once before in the last decade, and is a hefty rise against 2003's figure - 7%.  The proportion of men (27%) who have given time to volunteer to a charity, other organisation or in their local community in the last three months has also reached a 10-year high, overtaking women (26%).  Females have only polled lower than men on two occasions in the last decade and have an average level of 24% for the last three years, compared to 21% for men.  Furthermore, younger generations (16-24-year-olds) have significantly increased their volunteering too. In July 2014, 31% of the 16-24-year-olds included in the study's 1,000-strong sample had given time to volunteer in the last three months, more than double October 2004's figure - approximately 15%.  According to the report, younger Britons are the most likely age group to volunteer, having consistently reported the highest volunteering levels of any age group, on average, over the last three years.  In addition, the research suggests that volunteering levels can be dictated by religious activity, with regular worshipers more than twice as likely to volunteer.  Joe Saxton, Driver of Ideas at nfpsynergy, said: 'The number of men volunteering doubles in a decade! Number of young people volunteering doubles in a decade! These are extraordinary changes. It's a really encouraging sign to see that so many more young people are volunteering and that the gap between men and women is narrowing, but all too often charities don't think about how they can reach out to these groups. Targeting volunteer opportunities to appeal to different groups is essential to ensuring a steady supply of volunteers and capitalising on the skills they provide.'

					Survey Shows Car Crashes are Number One Concern for Parents
				</title>
				<description>
					 A recent survey has discovered that the top concern for parents with children aged between 16 and 25 is the fear that their child will be involved in a serious car crash.  Of the 498 adults who were questioned, more than three fifths (62%) said they were most worried about their child being injured in a severe car crash, with marginally less (59%) anxious their child would be unable to secure a job.  One third (33%) of the survey's participants were worried their child would not fulfil their potential at school or university, and just over three in 10 (31%) feared their child would consume illegal drugs. Around one quarter (27%) were concerned about their children taki
