Quarter of 14-year-old girls in UK have self-harmed, report finds

the guardian - Wed, 29/08/2018 - 02:01

Children’s Society analysis suggests tens of thousands hurting themselves on purpose

More than 100,000 children aged 14 in the UK are self-harming, with one in four girls of this age having deliberately hurt themselves, according to a new report.

In figures that show the scale of the mental health crisis affecting young people, the Children’s Survey analysed a survey of 11,000 14-year-olds which found that a quarter of girls and nearly one in 10 boys had self-harmed in a year.

The Guardian view on air pollution: it’s time for politicians to clean up | Editorial

the guardian - Τρίτη, 28/08/2018 - 20:40
The current stand-off is dangerous, so put the public’s health first

Two years after the World Health Organization labelled air pollution a global “public health emergency”, and the House of Commons environment committee used the same phrase to describe the situation in the UK, new evidence shows that breathing unsafe air causes a loss of intelligence, particularly in the over-64s. The research, carried out in China, showed that test scores declined when people breathed toxins including nitrogen dioxide and particulate, with language ability more affected than maths. This news, though alarming, is unlikely to change anything straight away. China has been engaged in a “war against pollution” for five years, while governments and policymakers around the world already have ample evidence that pollution is extremely harmful. Top of the list of dangers is the way it worsens heart and lung diseases including asthma and emphysema, while one study last year suggested a link to dementia.

The problem is both global and national: urbanisation and increasing car use mean that pollution is on the rise internationally, while the UK government is under huge pressure to clean up air that has broken EU legal limits for the past eight years. Western capitals do not feature in the WHO’s lists of the planet’s most polluted cities, and levels of most pollutants in the UK have fallen (though not ammonia, a byproduct of farming). But increased scientific understanding of the damage to health caused by gases such as nitrogen oxides makes inexcusable the complacency of which we have seen so much, both under the current Conservative government and its coalition predecessor.

Recommendations for when you can’t face another textbook

The Secret Barrister: Stories of the Law and How It’s Broken, by The Secret Barrister

Both a qualified junior barrister and award-winning blogger, The Secret Barrister has struck a balance between educational and entertaining with their debut book. It serves, in some ways, as a 21st century tale of morality and law, exploring the many wrongs and a few rights of our criminal justice system. You’ll also find useful information on the profession as a whole. Denser historical sections are often interspersed with witty remarks that disperse any ambivalence you may feel due to the anonymity of the author. For a taster, start with The Secret Barrister blog or their Twitter (@BarristerSecret) – nearly 150,000 followers would agree it’s worth a look.
