    Flu vaccine offered to every primary school child in England

    Every primary school child in England is to be offered vaccination against winter flu in an attempt to safeguard them and their family from the virus, the health service has announced, promising no shortage of vaccines regardless of the Brexit outcome. This year’s flu vaccination campaign will be the biggest ever, with 25 million people offered vaccines free, including 600,000 school children aged 10-11. Children are considered “super-spreaders”, liable to infect others in their family and a danger to the elderly. All children aged two to 11 will be offered the nasal spray vaccine in the coming weeks.

    After about 15 years working in the meat industry, butcher Brian Kavanagh found he was concealing a secret. Much of his adult life had been spent shaping, slicing and trimming animal products by the slab without a qualm - a career that began when he was just 16 in a small family-run butcher in Burnside, South Lanarkshire.

    Silk Road 2 Founder Dread Pirate Roberts 2 Caught, Jailed for 5 Years

    In 2015, WIRED published a list of the ‘dark web drug lords who got away.’ That list included the Dread Pirate Roberts 2 (DPR2), the creator of the second Silk Road site, which launched almost immediately after the FBI ended the first with the famous arrest of founder Ross Ulbricht. Under DPR2, Silk Road 2 went on to rake in hundreds of thousands of dollars a day. The FBI shut that one down too and arrested its remaining administrator. By that time, DPR2 had already passed ownership of the site on and, publicly, it looked like he had evaded prosecution.

    Compasses to point true north for first time in 360 years

    If you think your compass has been directing you true north, you are wrong. At some point over the next two weeks compasses at Greenwich will point true north for the first time in about 360 years. And for some parts of the UK, this may not happen for another 20 years.

    HIV diagnoses in England fall to lowest level since 2000

    Diagnoses of HIV in England have fallen to their lowest level in almost two decades. However, Public Health England (PHE) said challenges around the virus remain, with figures showing that almost half the people newly diagnosed last year were at a late stage of infection, increasing their risk of death. Diagnoses fell by just over a quarter (28%) from 6,271 in 2015 to 4,484 in 2018, PHE said, adding that the continued decline in the virus was down to the success of preventive measures.

    Queen hands over the reigns to Prince Charles - historic step closer to a new king

    It is being dubbed the “gentle succession” – as the Queen gradually begins to relinquish some of her traditional duties as monarch. As she approaches her 88th birthday in April after almost 62 years on the throne, she has agreed to hand over part of her workload in a historic “job-share” arrangement with Prince Charles. In a royal first, he will be taking on more head of state-style responsibilities as the Palace starts to make tentative plans for his eventual succession.

    Wikipedia to store famous voices for posterity, starting with Stephen Fry's

    Virtually everyone in the UK (and many an Engadget reader) is familiar with Stephen Fry's iconic voice, but will anyone remember it in, say, 50 years? He certainly hopes so, but just to be sure, Wikipedia has recorded it for posterity and pegged it to his bio page. The plan is to have a large number of well-known types do the same so that readers will know "what (those folks) sound like and how they pronounce their names."

    Buns, Germs and Steel

    Dalston, in the East London borough of Hackney, is an area that wears both the obvious scars and the shiny adornments of gentrification. Like most of the East side of London, this has long been a working class, racially diverse neighborhood, but with the industrial decline of the UK the old warehouses became squats and studios, and art soon flourished in the area...

    David Cameron Says Snooper's Charter Is Necessary Because Fictional Crime Dramas He Watches Prove It

    You may recall the stories from the past couple years about the so-called "snooper's charter" in the UK -- a system to further legalize the government's ability to spy on pretty much all communications. It was setting up basically a total surveillance system, even beyond what we've since learned is already being done today. Thankfully, that plan was killed off by Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg.

    George Bush and Tony Blair Are Officially War Criminals

    Kuala Lumpur Foundation to Criminalise War, who run the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Commission – a sort of upstart alternative to the Hague. At a tribunal earlier this year they one-upped George Monbiot by declaring Tony Blair and George Bush as war criminals. And why not? It's still relevant. NOFX are still playing “Franco Un-American” on tour, after all.
