Bev Humphrey: ‘The underfunding of the NHS is almost conspiratorial’ | Society | The Guardian
Humphrey believes the health service is now close to breaking point and that government policy is to blame. “The chronic underfunding of the NHS is almost conspiratorial,” she says. “The way it has been starved of money for the last seven years is scandalous. We haven’t got to this decade to find everyone is suddenly iller. I fear the government will turn around in a few years and say, ‘Look, we have given you money and it hasn’t worked – we need a new system.’ I am concerned this would lead to a compulsory insurance model.” It would create a two-tier system, she feels. “The NHS is not only a very efficient service, it’s also clinically excellent. If we move away from that [a service that is free at the point of need] there’s no going back. What you would end up with is very poor quality services for the poorest and those who need it most.”

The paradox of markups, part 2
t refers to the fact that the weights in the weighted average of markups change over time. Recall that holding markups constant, if you push more resources into high-markup firms, this raises productivity because the output of those firms is very valuable. The yellow line shows that productivity was rising over time due to this effect, and that in turn implies that more and more resources were getting pushed into high markup firms.

'Wake-up call' over liver disease risks due to weight - BBC News
Scans of nearly 3,000 individuals from the UK Biobank research project showed that 12% had inflamed, fatty livers.

The British Liver Trust said the "very alarming" findings were a 'wake-up call' because the condition can lead to cirrhosis, liver failure and death.

Hepatologists said there was a silent epidemic of fatty liver disease.

Self-Deployed Space or Planetary Habitats and Extremely Large Structures
NIAC phase 1 results. NRO research related as well for deployable space telescopes. Rigidized UV cured polymer thin film bubbles for space applications. Possible flat primary mirrors/solar sails, but if they are making spheres, making curved mirror segments should be doable. If you use 6 stabilizing hoops as cut lines, can get 6 sphere segments without much waste (waste could be repurposed as additional mirror segments)
