Global liveability has improved for the first time in a decade

  • 0

THE past decade has been a tumultuous one. Civil wars, terrorist attacks and a financial meltdown have put pressure on the quality of life around the world.

The growth of lithium-ion battery power

  • 0

THE first lithium-ion batteries went on sale just 26 years ago, in Sony’s CCD-TR1 camcorder. The product was a hit: the batteries even more so, spreading to computers, phones, cordless power tools, e-cigarettes and beyond.

British university rankings

  • 0

WHICH university is best? Most published rankings tell you a great deal about an institution’s reputation, or how often its researchers publish in top academic journals. However, they don’t necessarily answer the question that prospective students really care about: what they have to gain by attending.

Why the most prolific penalty-takers might just be lucky

  • 0

IT LOOKS easy: a shot from just 11 metres (36 feet) out, with only the goalkeeper to beat. But even the very best footballers miss a meaningful share of penalties, which are awarded for infringements within the opposition box or used to decide tied matches in knockout competitions.

Pricey London property may push Labour voters into Conservative constituencies

  • 0

BRITAIN’S Conservative Party seems at last to have reached the limit of its NIMBYism. Cannier parts of the party have long argued for more housing, but now that view is becoming mainstream.

Lobbyists know which way the Washington winds are blowing

  • 0

DONALD TRUMP came to Washington vowing to “drain the swamp” of influence-peddling. Such a promise would be hard to keep even if he meant it. Spending on lobbying tends to rise over time, and the increases are often particularly sharp when a new president takes office. Sure enough, America’s capital now looks swampier than ever.
