Americans Are Sitting at Record Rates. Here ’s Why That’s So Dangerous
Every day, we modern humans stay comfortably seated on our behinds for hours at a time: binge watching shows on Netflix, pecking away on keyboards at work, scrolling through social media feeds. But do people really sit more than they used to? That’s what Yin Cao and an international group of colleagues wanted to find out in their latest study published in JAMA. While studies on sitting behavior in specific groups of people — such as children or working adults with desk jobs — have recorded how sedentary people are, there is little data on how drastically sitting habits have changed over time. “We do...

Iain Conn, the chief executive of Centrica, is due to receive a £2.4 million pay package – 109 times the £22,000 average salary of call centre staff – in a year when 2,000 employees are losing their jobs. His 44% pay increase of £660,000 is the equivalent of the average yearly pay for 30 call centre workers at the energy giant.

House members introduce companion medical device tax repeal bill
A quartet of U.S. representatives today introduced a companion bill to a Senate measure that would do away with the medical device tax altogether. The 2.3% levy on U.S. medical device sales went into effect in 2013 but was only in place for two years before Congress put a moratorium in place. When that ended in January 2018, a second moratorium was enacted that’s due to expire at the end of this year. In 2018, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill to repeal the tax 283-132, but the Senate failed to act. Last month Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) and Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Penn.) r...
