No new pay rise for English school support staff
School staff in England won’t be getting an unexpected pay bonus after the school holidays, despite what some media reports suggested over the weekend. These followed an announcement by Chancellor Philip Hammond of pay rises over 2% for “key” public sector workers. But all is not what it seems. For a start, the education pay rise of 2.75% only applies to teachers and heads in England – not to other staff. And the government is only funding 0.75% of the pay rise. The other 2% has to be found from within schools’ existing budgets. Mr Hammond’s announcement came just days after MPs war...

Nikita Khrushchev ’s Son Watched his Father Lose the Space Race. 50 Years After the Moon Landing, He Holds No Grudge
Chernobyl was an awfully nice place to be half a century or so ago. Named after the wormwood herb that grew wild there, the town had a modest population, a river that ran clear, and open land for camping and star-gazing. So that was where Sergei Khrushchev, a 34-year-old engineer, stopped with a small group of other people led by his father Nikita, 75, the former leader of the Soviet Union, in the predawn hours of July 21, 1969. The day before had been a glorious one for humanity—and particularly for the portion of humanity that was American. Just hours before, Apollo 11 astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin had ...

Why Cybersecurity Threats in Medtech are Really Scary
Due to cybersecurity vulnerabilities identified in Medtronic's MiniMed 508 and MiniMed Paradigm insulin pumps, a hacker could potentially connect wirelessly to a nearby device and change the pump's settings, FDA said on Friday. This could allow a person to over deliver insulin to the patient, leading to low blood sugar, or to stop insulin delivery, leading to high blood sugar and a buildup of acids in the blood. To be clear, there have not been any confirmed reports of patient harm related to these risks, but it's scary to think about the possible fallout if a hacker were to take advantage of this vulnerability...
