The economy is great, so why are so many Democrats running for White House?

(CNN)With an economy as strong as the one that the nation currently enjoys — 3.2% growth in this year’s first quarter — President Donald Trump should be feeling pretty good about his prospects for re-election. In post-WWII history, the only presidents who have failed to win re-election struggled with a tough economy (Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, and George H.W. Bush), or decided not to run (Harry Truman and Lyndon B. Johnson). Added to his struggle with national approval, the fallout from Robert Mueller’s report seems to be further eroding his reputation. While only 37% of Americans say that they support moving forward with impeachment, nearly six out of ten believe that the President lied in matters under investigation by the …

Anti-vaxxers ‘have blood on their hands,’ says UK health secretary

London (CNN)The UK’s health secretary Matt Hancock said anti-vaccination campaigners were “morally reprehensible, deeply irresponsible” and had “blood on their hands,” in an interview with The Times published Saturday. “If you don’t vaccinate your child, it’s not only your child that is at risk. It’s also other children, including other children who, for medical reasons, can’t be vaccinated,” he continued. “Vaccination is good for you, good for your child, and good for your neighbor and your community.” Hancock said that anti-vaccination activists were “campaigning against science,” adding, “the science is settled.” More than 500,000 children in the UK did not receive the first dose of the measles vaccine between 2010 and 2017, according to the UNICEF report.

However, the range of other parties which voters will be able to choose between is limited as there are no Brexit Party or Change UK candidates. What I’ll be looking out for at …

Children’s services ‘at breaking point’

The committee follows a long line of organisations, including councils, children’s charities and economists, to raise the alarm over funding levels. ‘Overspent budgets’ In children’s services, this has led managers to divert funds from the early-intervention non-statutory preventative services that can catch problems before they become crises, to statutory services, which they are obliged to provide by law, at the more severe end of need. Spending data from the National Audit Office (NAO) shows England’s local authorities spent 59% of their children’s services budget on statutory services in 2010-11. But by 2017-18, councils were spending 75% on statutory services. And despite this, budgets for statutory services in many areas were overspent. Earlier this year, the NAO found that 91% of …

The New York of the 1970s had the dangerous luster of a well-polished razor blade, with hedonism and crime simultaneously hitting a hysterical peak. Forty-second Street was full of coke, pimps and working girls; the downtown scene was all art freaks and experimentalists creating raw expressions of urban fervor with whatever they could get their hands on.
