Opinion – Theresa May launches GBP75m drive against prostate cancer? – The Guardian

How can Theresa May claim that UK cancer treatment is world-class when the UK trails other advanced countries for cancer outcomes? Why aren’t the UK media citing the evidence? Thoughts?

Opinion – How Millennials today compare with their grandparents 50 years ago – Pew Research

This is an excellent piece of research by Pew. However, I would like to make a few observations. The quality of education has changed from millenials‘ grandparents’ day. I would argue that the quality of a bachelor degree has been diluted over the years. Sadly, a bachelor degree is worth more from an elitist ivy league school than a state college. Also consider standards of basic numeracy and English? Can today’s millennial graduates spell without the aid of a spell-check? In fifty years, there has been enormous improvement in education but in the developed world large quality challenges have become pervasive. Quality standards vary enormously – consider France or the UK, not just the US? There’s also the education establishment with their bureaucracy  and unions, who are often putting their own interests before their students – their customers/clients in the wider world. No, it’s time for service quality standards to reach education. Thoughts?
