    Oh my God: is religion relevant to young people?

    God save the Queen and God bless America – God is a figure that is nowhere but everywhere at the same time. But that is slowly changing in the UK as it increasingly becomes more secular. A British Social Attitudes survey revealed that 53 per cent of adults had no religious affiliation. The study showed only 3 per cent of adults under 24 identify as Anglican and 5 per cent identify as Catholic. The numbers continue to change when looking at young people and religion.

    The UK government says its Brexit deal will hurt the economy

    It's official: The British government's plan for leaving the European Union will be bad for the economy. The government published a report Wednesday that outlines the economic costs associated with a range of Brexit scenarios. The Bank of England followed later in the day with its own assessment. The United Kingdom would be worse off under all scenarios studied by the government. Officials did not estimate the precise impact of the deal Prime Minister Theresa May has negotiated with the European Union, but even in the best case it too will mean a weaker economy than remaining in the bloc.

    Revealed: Russia’s secret plan to help Julian Assange escape from UK

    Russian diplomats held secret talks in London last year with people close to Julian Assange to assess whether they could help him flee the UK, the Guardian has learned. A tentative plan was devised that would have seen the WikiLeaks founder smuggled out of Ecuador’s London embassy in a diplomatic vehicle and transported to another country. One ultimate destination, multiple sources have said, was Russia, where Assange would not be at risk of extradition to the US. The plan was abandoned after it was deemed too risky.

Unlike other modern high growth industries, the pot business doesn’t require a doctorate in science, or even a college degree. Much of the economic hype which surrounds the industry depends on it remaining an agricultural product. But it might not always be that way.

A Tesla owner who recorded thieves stealing his Model S by hacking the passive entry system has published the video on YouTube so we can all watch (and learn). It shows the crooks using a tablet to apparently capture the passive signal from his keyfob, then using the data to open the vehicle. Amusingly, the pair didn't drive off as quickly as they could have simply because they couldn't figure out how to detach the charging cable (hint: there's a button).
