AskTen - Ten things you may not have noticed last week!


  1. The royal wedding is a TV hit. The Royal Family’s twitter account posted a message of thanks to everyone who followed the wedding. Among them were a fifth of all Britons, with BBC viewing figures peaking at 13.1m at the height of proceedings, just after 1pm. The average audience of 8.7m, combined with ITV’s average of 2.5m, accounted for 82.5 per cent of all television viewers and eclipsed the audience for the FA Cup final, which averaged 6.7m viewers on BBC One. The Sun
     
  2. Most Britons ‘have felt overwhelmed by stress’. Most Britons have felt “overwhelmed” by stress within the past year, with one in three left feeling suicidal and one in six self-harming in response, a new survey suggests. The research, commissioned by the Mental Health Foundation think tank, is the biggest ever carried out into the impact of stress. Experts say the NHS should do more. Daily Mail
     
  3. Dementia exercise programmes ‘don’t work’. Researchers at Oxford University have concluded that NHS exercise programmes for people with mild to moderate dementia “don’t work”. Exercise is thought to be one of the best ways of stopping healthy adults contracting dementia - but the study suggests it does not improve thinking skills or behaviour once the disease has taken hold. BBC
     
  4. 'Cynical' Theresa May announces nine Tory peers. The prime minister has been accused of "hypocrisy" after appointing nine new Conservative peers to the House of Lords, including several ex-ministers. Theresa May, who had previously stated that senior politicians should not expect automatic ennoblement, sent six former MPs to the upper chamber. Critics called May "cynical" for releasing the news on the eve of the Royal Wedding, when it would receive little attention. The Independent
     
  5. Supersize us. Britain is starting to overtake America in obesity rates, with the latest figures showing that more children in England are classed as obese at the age of 11 than in the US. The proportion of US children aged 9 to 11 who are obese is 18.5%. The figure for children in their final year of primary school in England is at a record high of 20%. The Times
     
  6. Cold marketing isn’t dead. Royal Mail was criticised for advising businesses to exploit a loophole in new data protection laws. From 25 May, firms will in many cases need people’s consent before they can send them marketing material. Royal Mail suggests they get around this by sending the bumf out in unaddressed envelopes. Daily Mail
     
  7. The sun sets on Club 18-30. The tour operator known for shipping generations of young Brits to cheap Mediterranean resorts for a week of sun, sex and tequila may be coming to an end. Thomas Cook says the concept doesn’t appeal to millennials, and is reportedly putting the business up for sale. Daily Telegraph
     
  8. Quote of the week. There is power in love,” declared Bishop Michael Curry, the American pastor whose volcanic wedding sermon made Britain’s latest royal extravaganza quite unlike any before it. “Do not underestimate it,” he went on. “Anyone who has ever fallen in love knows what I mean.” askten
