A-level problem was a crime, not a cock-up | Letters

Pearson executive Rod Pearson defends the company over a leak of maths exam papersYour report (Exam board makes last minute change to two A-level papers after leak, 26 June) explains the measures we were forced to take this week to ensure that this year’s maths A-level was fair to all students. Contrary to some of the comments in the article, this was not an example of the exam board getting it wrong. This incident arose from criminal behaviour, which is now the subject of a police investigation. We acted swiftly, working with the regulator and the police, to tackle malpractice and to ensure fair exams with the minimum possible inconvenience to schools. The examinations system rests on trust; it is a team effort between exam boards and schools. We all have to protect the integrity of exam papers in the interests of students.

Further pure maths and statistics tests affected as police open criminal investigation into claims relating to other exams this summerAn examination board investigating allegations of leaks has been forced to make last-minute changes to two A-level papers that were taken on Monday after another apparent breach of security.Pearson, which owns the Edexcel exam board, said it had replaced questions in its statistics and further pure maths papers after the board was informed that some students “had information they should not have had”. It also confirmed that police had opened a criminal investigation into earlier allegations of malpractice relating to an A-level maths paper. Continue reading...

Scheduling conflicts led to a more casual ceremony than usual, with the queen foregoing the typical ceremonial robes and crown. Instead, the monarch wore a festive yellow and blue floral dress with a blue overcoat and a hat with blue and yellow flowers ― or are those really meant to be the stars in the flag of the European Union? Social media appears to think so. Twitter users were quick to claim the hat’s design is really a subtle message the queen is a “remainer,” or a person who is against the U.K. leaving the European Union in Brexit. Love the fact that Her Majesty delivered today’s Queen’s Speech wearing an EU hat ;-) pic.twitter.com/4THPv0vsXr— Phil Moss (@philmoss5) June 21, 2017 It’s very possible that the queen, who boasts an extensive hat collection, chose the blue and yellow outfit at random and the hat is just a coincidence. She hasn’t given an opinion publicly one way or the other on Brexit, but there has been speculation she supported the vote to withdraw. Either way, hats off to this moment, because coincidence or not, the possibility the queen was sending a subtle message makes her outfit way more fun. Check out the best reactions to her buzz-worthy topper below: Loving the Queen's aptly themed hat #QueensSpeech #Brexit #Europe pic.twitter.com/jf9RkCru73— Rebecca Pearson (@ibexi) June 21, 2017 "Your majesty, you can't be seen to take sides on this issue""Indeed""....""Gonna wear a fucking massive EU hat tho"— TechnicallyRon (@TechnicallyRon) June 21, 2017 Clearly the EU still inspires some in the UK #QueensSpeech pic.twitter.com/vqTWnxKk1V— Guy Verhofstadt (@GuyVerhofstadt) June 21, 2017 Today is not the longest day of the year.

Looming Obamacare deadline forces decision from skittish insurers

Decision day is here for the health insurers that serve Obamacare markets. The health plans must decide by Wednesday whether to file plans to sell through the federal exchange HealthCare.gov in 2018. But they’re still waiting for assurances the Trump administration will fund subsidies to reduce low-income customers’ health costs. The White House on Tuesday agreed to make the payments for June. But uncertainty over what happens after that is turning efforts to cover Obamacare’s poorest customers into a game of chicken — and adding instability to already shaky insurance markets. At least a half-dozen plans have already announced plans to drop out, leaving tens of thousands of customers uncovered if no one else steps in. “There’s absolutely no guarantee they will get those payments, and that’s what’s driving insurers crazy,” said Tim Jost, a legal expert on the Affordable Care Act. Anthem, which already announced its exit from Ohio's Obamacare marketplace in 2018, on Wednesday said it would stop selling exchange plans in Iowa and Wisconsin next year, partly attributing its decision to uncertainty about Obamacare's future. The Republican National Committee cited Anthem's announcement as it urged Congress to "act quickly to fix the mess of Obamacare."Meanwhile, the buzzy insurance startup Oscar Health on Wednesday said it will broaden its Obamacare offerings in five states next year. The expansion represents a major bet on the insurance marketplaces by the company, which was co-founded by the brother of Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump's son-in-law and top adviser. Insurers are facing confusion about whether the Trump administration will continue enforcing the 2010 health law’s mandate that most Americans obtain coverage — and about the fate of congressional Republican efforts to repeal and replace the ACA. Senate GOP leaders are still trying to cobble together enough votes to pass a bill by the end of next week.An HHS spokeswoman said Tuesday the agency is “weighing our options and still evaluating the issues” surrounding the subsidy payments. “Congress could resolve any uncertainty about the payments by passing the AHCA and reforming Obamacare’s failed funding structure,” she said, referring to the House Obamacare repeal plan.The muddled outlook is leading plans to retrench or dramatically raise prices to protect themselves from what’s proven to be a turbulent, money-losing experience over the last three years. “The market is still a very challenged market,” said Caroline Pearson, a senior vice president at Avalere Health. “That very challenged market is exacerbated by political uncertainty around ACA repeal and cost-sharing reduction payments.” Opting in by Wednesday’s deadline doesn’t commit plans to remain in the marketplaces. They can walk away as late as the end of September, when they have to sign contracts. But just going through the initial rate-setting process is costly and time-consuming. Some plans have already had enough and are exiting markets, citing uncertainty over the subsidy payments and the GOP repeal efforts. That includes Anthem’s decision to drop out of Ohio, potentially leaving up to 18 counties without any options for coverage. The current state of play shows as many as 44 bare counties for 2018, accounting for 31,000 Obamacare customers, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation. Federal subsidies, which more than 8 in 10 exchange enrollees rely on to afford coverage, would be rendered worthless if there are no plans willing to participate. “It’s fair to say that this is unprecedented that there’s so many counties at risk of being bare,” said Cynthia Cox, who tracks insurer participation for the Kaiser Family Foundation. Some insurers still see business opportunities in the exchange markets. Centene announced last week that it plans to enter three new states next year and expand its footprint in six others. Although the insurer wouldn't elaborate on specific counties, several of the states are among those with coverage gaps. In addition, Medica announced plans to sell individual plans statewide in both Nebraska and Iowa. That dampened fears that those states might lack carriers in 2018 for dozens of counties following the exits of Aetna and regional Blue Cross Blue Shield plans.But there’s other grim news that could have more widespread ramifications: Premiums continue to skyrocket in much of the country. Many analysts had predicted that the huge rate hikes for 2017 — averaging more than 20 percent — were a one-time correction, and that there would more sustainable increases in 2018 and beyond. The filing season so far points to more turbulence. An Avalere Health analysis of proposed rate hikes for the most popular Obamacare plans in eight states found average rate hikes of 18 percent. That was well above the 12 percent average premium increase for so-called silver plans in 2017. Even historically stable markets are showing signs of tumult. In Washington state, which has embraced Obamacare, insurers want to raise rates for individual plans by an average of more than 20 percent for next year, and one county doesn’t have an insurer willing to sell coverage. There are several factors behind the steeper-than-expected rate hikes, most notably uncertainty surrounding the cost-sharing subsidies.While the Trump administration has so far continued making payments to plans, there’s no guarantee they will continue beyond this month. Trump has repeatedly suggested that he sees the fate of the payments as leverage to propel Democrats to negotiate on Obamacare repeal — even though Democrats have ruled that out. Trump has remained noncommittal, despite recent calls from top Republicans such as House Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady (R-Texas) and Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Chairman Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) for continued funding. “The payments will help to avoid the real possibility that millions of Americans will literally have zero options for insurance in the individual market in 2018,” Alexander said at a committee hearing last week. But there’s also anxiety around whether the individual mandate will be enforced, and whether younger and healthier customers decide to drop coverage if they conclude they won't have to pay a fine. New Mexico Health Connections is proposing rate hikes of up to 80 percent for next year. That assumes that there will be no cost-sharing subsidies and that the individual mandate won’t be enforced. It also reflects evidence that the plan is already seeing its cohort of younger, healthier customers dropping coverage. “That tells us that the near-death spiral is a real phenomenon,” said Martin Hickey, CEO of New Mexico Health Connections.The New Mexico insurer also is pricing in the possibility that it could be the only health plan left serving the market and soaking up all the financial risk. Without all of these exacerbating factors, Hickey estimates that rate hikes would be much different. His educated guess: increases of 10 to 20 percent. The other big wild card is what’s going to happen on Capitol Hill. Republicans had hoped to have a bill on the president’s desk before spring break, but now they’re struggling to get something passed through both chambers before they adjourn for the August recess. That’s adding to insurers' anxiety. “I absolutely think it exacerbates the rates for 2018,” said Tennessee Insurance Commissioner Julie Mix McPeak, a Republican. “Everyone thought we would have a bit more certainty at this point.”

Democrats zero in on voters who spurned them

Stung by a slew of late-breaking defeats in recent governors races, Democrats believe they’ve come up with a new turnout model that will better predict how those contests will break in the final days.The Democratic Governors Association on Tuesday convened its polling, analytics and media consultants in downtown Washington to unveil a model designed to give the party better intelligence about where, and whom, to target in the closing days of an election. The idea is to bolster campaigns’ understanding of undecided voters, but also to identify which voters might switch from one party to the other at the ballot box.It’s the latest step in the party’s effort to revamp their polling operations following now-President Donald Trump’s upset victory last fall. There’s a sense of urgency attached to the project: The 38 governorships up in 2017 and 2018 may represent the party’s best shot at returning to power before the 2020 presidential election.“This kind of redefines, at some level, undecided voters — and the difference between an undecided and a persuadable voter. Just because someone says they’re undecided in a poll doesn’t mean they’re persuadable,” said DGA Political Director Corey Platt. “And just because someone says they’re with you doesn’t mean they’re not persuadable. And so this is a better tactical tool to help identify who the people are that we need to persuade at the end.”Republicans now control 33 of the nation’s 50 governorships — the most since 1922 — in large part because GOP underdogs eked out victories over the past four cycles against Democratic favorites in a number of states, despite polling that led Democrats to believe they were headed to victory. Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback, Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan and Maine Gov. Paul LePage are among those who trailed in many of the polls before the 2014 election, but ultimately prevailed.The harshest blow came the year after, when most observers expected Democrat Jack Conway to win the off-year race in Kentucky. But Republican Matt Bevin defied the polls and defeated Conway easily.Last year, Democrats similarly fell short in Indiana and Missouri, even though their pre-election surveys suggested each race was winnable. Similarly, exit poll data indicates late-deciding voters broke sharply for Trump over Hillary Clinton in the three northern states that provided Trump with his Electoral College majority: Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.As part of a pre-planned effort, Democratic pollster Jefrey Pollock, president of Global Strategy Group in New York, led a project to re-contact voters in Indiana and Missouri — along with two states where Democrats won the governor’s race, Montana and West Virginia — to figure out what happened at the gubernatorial level in 2016. The research, shared with POLITICO, suggests that while each state was different, Republicans won undecided voters in Indiana and Missouri by margins that likely proved decisive in those close races.In Indiana, the research shows, half of voters who said they were undecided before the election said they voted for now-GOP Gov. Eric Holcomb, compared to only 28 percent for Democrat John Gregg. Moreover, 10 percent of voters supporting Gregg before the election said they ended up voting for Holcomb, while only 6 percent of Holcomb voters backed Gregg.The late break in Missouri was even more stark. Republican Eric Greitens won 55 percent of undecided and third-party voters, according to the analysis, while Democrat Chris Koster won only 21 percent of these voters.While part of the error was systemic — the polls overestimated Koster’s “support across the state, but particularly in places like Springfield,” Pollock said — that was dwarfed by the undecided who broke toward Greitens by wide margins.But Pollock — who said his analysis factored in poll respondents’ tendency to overstate their support for the actual winner — also noted that the Democratic candidates in Montana and West Virginia held the line among late-deciding voters.The model the DGA hopes to implement uses other polling, demographic and commercial data to identify the universe of truly persuadable voters — the specifics of which the DGA and Pollock say are proprietary.“It’s not just the undecideds. It’s also that there’s a bunch of people who may very well switch,” Pollock said. “Seventy or 80 percent of voters aren’t switching. But that 20 percent — who are they?”For now, the DGA is hopeful that party operatives working on gubernatorial races will embrace this new model, though there’s no guarantee it will gain widespread acceptance.“This isn’t about the DGA imposing particular standards,” said Elisabeth Pearson, the DGA’s executive director. “Everybody, especially after 2016, is looking for ways that we can improve some things, change some things. … I think it’s going to be great.”While the new approach helps identify persuadable voters, it doesn’t in and of itself solve Democrats’ most significant problem: From last year’s presidential race back to the 2014 midterms, more late-breaking elections broke toward Republicans.“I think there’s no question that there’s been a Democratic headwind that we have had to fight against,” said Pollock. “That’s true on the governors’ race level, that’s true in Senate races. That’s why we are where we are. And that’s why national politics do matter.”But, Pollock added, Trump’s current unpopularity could flip the script for the party if it holds — and make Democrats the beneficiaries of any late movement.“What I fear, though … is that we would overlearn that example and go into what looks to be right now a tremendous potential year thanks to Donald Trump and the backlash [against him],” Pollock said. “And, all of a sudden, we would have overlearned all the wrong lessons.”Pollock hopes the new model will help the party solve a problem that has dogged it for the past three year -- one that he knows all too well.“[Fellow Democratic pollster] Fred Yang and I sat in this room [last year] and told a whole bunch of people, ‘That’s what happened in 2015 in Jack Conway’s race,’” Pollock said Tuesday in an interview at DGA headquarters, citing the late movement toward Republicans in the Kentucky race. “And it felt like bulls---. Even as I was presenting it: It’s like, this all feels like a massive cover-up for the pollsters. To be like, ‘No, no, no, no. We swear all these people moved.’ And yet, that’s actually exactly what happened in these [2016 governors races], and it happens to be what happened in the presidential.”

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and former President Barack Obama left their ties at home Tuesday night as they casually dined at a Montreal restaurant. Obama had earlier addressed a crowd of 6,000 people at the Montreal Board of Trade during his first post-presidency visit to Canada. He did not mention President Donald Trump by name but denounced the current administration’s lack of leadership on climate change and diplomacy.  Following the event, Obama and Trudeau headed to the St. Henri neighborhood for dinner. According to the Montreal Gazette, people crowded outside Liverpool House to get a look at the two leaders. Liverpool House is the popular sister restaurant to the trendy eatery Joe’s Beef.

The Site review – all the building's a stage as the Royal Court puts place before play

Royal Court, LondonDesigner Chloe Lamford’s inventive space for experimental works shakes up the process of making – and seeing – theatreThe Royal Court theatre’s new temporary space , The Site, is so blue and bright it almost hurts your eyes. The walls are covered in rubbery foam, which the moderator in Deborah Pearson’s play It’s All Made Up described as “blue nipples”. That is spot on, and it is no wonder that It’s All Made Up latched on to the womb-like nature of The Site in a piece in which motherhood was a theme. EV Crowe’s work The Unknown (which opens on 8 June) will draw on her dreams. That makes sense, too. The Site, a small rehearsal space behind the Royal Court, has been transformed by designer Chloe Lamford into a temporary performance venue with a programme of shows that are more genuinely site-specific than most theatre that claims stridently to be so. Here, the space comes first. Continue reading...

Эксперт: 5G-сети принесут мировой экономике триллионы долларов

Технология 5G принесёт мировой экономике $12,3 трлн к 2035 году, заявил глава отраслевой торговой группы 5G Americas Крис Пирсон (Chris Pearson) в рамках мероприятия Global 5G Event, проходившего в Токио. Согласно его прогнозу, к 2035 году инфраструктура 5G-сетей будет поддерживать 22 млн рабочих мест по всему земному шару, а её вклад в глобальный ВВП за период с 2020 по 2035 год окажется сопоставим с размером экономики Индии. По мнению Пирсона, переход на технологию 5G окажет существенное влияние на жизнь человечества. В частности, стандарт откроет новые возможности в таких сферах, как энергетика, транспорт, здравоохранение и общественная безопасность, а также будет востребован в так называемых «умных» городах. При этом глава 5G Americas отметил, что с развитием 5G возрастут расходы на так называемый Интернет вещей (IoT). В 2020 году они могут достигнуть отметки в $1,7 трлн.

Manchester attack: UK threat level reduced from critical to severe – live

Threat level is reduced but Operation Temperer, which allows military to be deployed to key sites, will continue until end of bank holiday weekendLarge part of Manchester attack network detained, police sayKatie Hopkins leaves LBC radio show after ‘final solution’ tweetUK police end suspension of intelligence sharing with USAll 22 victims of Manchester Arena bombing namedJeremy Corbyn: ‘war on terror is simply not working’ 2.10pm BST Here is a video of Met assistant commissioner Mark Rowley’s statement, in which he vowed that there would be more arrests in the investigation into the Manchester bombing. As well as his police role, Rowley is the anti-terrorism policy lead for the National Police Chiefs’ Council.The high pace and rapid progress of this investigation is continuing. There were three more arrests overnight. We now have 11 men in custody. There are 17 searches either concluded or continuing on various addresses, largely in the north-west of the country.We are getting a greater understanding of the preparation of the bomb. There is still much more to do. There will be more arrests. There will be more searches but the greater clarity and progress has led JTAC, the independent body which assesses threat, to the judgment that an attack is no longer imminent. 2.05pm BST Number 10 has posted a video on Twitter of Theresa May’s statement this morning announcing the downgrading of the country’s terror threat level. The PM has announced the terror threat level has now been changed from critical to severe. Watch her statement. pic.twitter.com/iQMNgEnuEzI’ve just chaired a meeting of Cobra this morning where I’ve been updated by the police and the security services on the investigation into Monday’s terrible attack in Manchester. A significant amount of police activity has taken place over the past 24 hours and there are now 11 suspects in custody. In the light of these developments, JTAC – the independent Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre – has this morning taken the decision to reduce the threat level from critical to severe. The public should be clear about what this means: a threat level of severe means an attack is highly likely, the country should remain vigilant. In recent days, members of the armed forces have been assisting police in providing reassurance to the public under Operation Temperer. Today marks the start of a busy bank holiday weekend, with many sporting events and other events taking place, for which detailed security plans are already in place. To provide maximum reassurance to the public, Operation Temperer will continue to operate until the bank holiday concludes. Then on Monday, from midnight on Monday onwards, there will be a well-planned and gradual withdrawal of members of the armed forces, who will return to normal duties. The police will make a statement shortly to give further details of precisely how this will take place. Continue reading...
