The Establishment by Owen Jones

A controversial title, it puts forward a clear and passionate argument making the case for re-examining the British political system. The book, which Armando Iannucci described as “Fantastic, timely, eye-opening', in the New Statesman, puts across the argument that currently, a small group of individuals not only wield the greatest power in Britain, but that they use this power to serve needs that are far from universal. Jones is not suggesting this is "an organised conspiracy", more a deliberate ploy to shape government for the needs of the few. Essentially, as the empowered in society help one another, these mutually beneficial relationships make it very difficult for others to assert themselves or their interests.

Janey Tracey Tuesday, 26 January - 5:39PM Astronomers studying planet 2MASS J2126-8140 thought it was a lonely orphan planet, wandering around to different solar systems without a star to create a regular orbit.

Now, a new study shows that it is actually part of the largest solar system ever discovered, at a trillion kilometers (approx. 621,000,000,000 miles) away from its host star. To put that into perspective, this means that the planet orbits its star at 140 times the distance that Pluto circles our Sun. The previous widest pair of objects, by comparison, were 370,000,000,000 kilometers away from each other. The distance between the planet and its host star is approximately 6,900 times the distance between Earth and the Sun, and one year on that planet would last for almost one million Earth years.

"We can speculate they formed 10 million to 45 million years ago from a filament of gas that pushed them together in the same direction," Dr Murphy said.

The roads take hill starts to a whole new level – I had to drive up one in 1st gear for what felt like a mile. I also went down a road called ‘Doddle Lane’ – this narrow cobble road on a hill, with brick walls either side and I’m telling you now it was not a doddle at all to get down!!

I got there in one piece thankfully, on time and with no accidents. Vision, mission & values in Sustainable design. British Airways Creates a 'Happiness Blanket' to Help Fliers Sleep.

1 / 7 2 / 7 3 / 7 4 / 7 5 / 7 6 / 7 Upon first glance, the new conceptual office by Dutch design firm RAAAF resembles an obstacle course made of concrete blocks; however, the number of professionals sprawled across or leaning against these blocks tapping away on their laptops suggests the real function of the space as an avant-garde reinterpretation of the modern working environment.

Aiming to tackle the myriad health problems — including heart disease and diabetes — associated with sitting in the same position for eight or more hours every day at the typical desk job, the forward-thinkers at RAAAF partnered with the University of Groningen to design the installation that encourages workers to change position several times throughout the day, each time making you put more pressure on your legs. While the installation remains a thought-provoking experiment, furniture makers have already started calling.
