AskTen - Ten amazing things you may not have known last week
http://askten.co.uk


1. What Wonga would owe if it applied its own annual 5,853% interest rate to the £2.6m in compensation it now has to pay 45,000 customers. The payday lender had sent threatening letters from fake law firms, and charged a fee for sending them out. Financial Times

2. Before you go on a summer shopping spree, this may make you put the plastic back in your wallet. One in five people will take 17 years to pay off credit card debts, a study suggests. The figure is based on those paying off the minimum each month towards the average debt of £4,500 at 17.9 per cent. Metro

3. Voters will be asked if Britain needs a new Magna Carta, as the constitutional document reaches its 800th anniversary next year. The Commons wants to know if rules of democracy need to be written down, as many of them are based on common law and conventions at present. The consultation runs until January. Daily Express

4. One in four children spends less than half-an-hour outdoors each day, the National Trust says. More than half of youngsters aged seven to 12 spend less than an hour outside, it added. Nine in ten have never taken part in traditional outdoor activities such as playing conkers or building a raft, a poll of parents showed. Daily Mail

5. UK scientists have made a “major step forward” in the race to develop a blood test to predict the onset of Alzheimer’s disease. Research on more than 1,000 subjects has identified a set of proteins in the blood whose presence can predict the onset of the dementia condition with 87 per cent accuracy. Daily Telegraph

6. Retail prices are falling at the fastest rate since records began. Ferocious competition on the high street is forcing retailers to offer cut-price food, clothes, footwear and electrical items. The British Retail Council says typical prices in the shops were down by 1.8% in June year-on-year. Food prices mildly bucked the trend with a marginal inflation of 0.6%, but the cost of non-edible items dropped by 3.4%. The Times

7. Think fondly of your boss – he or she might work a day more than you each week. According to a study from the Institute of Leadership and Management, almost half of UK managers work an extra day of unpaid overtime per week. The pressures of work and remote access to email through smartphones and tablets leave over 90% of managers working outside contracted and paid hours, the study found. The Times

8. All passengers flying into and out of the UK have been told that mobile devices in their hand luggage must have enough charge to be switched on. The new guidelines come after the US announced extra security checks last week. The rules cover phones, tablets and other gadgets including razors and cameras. Uncharged devices will not be allowed on board planes. Metro

9. In 2045 the world population will reach 10.4bn with more than 70% of people living in crowded urban areas, predicts a new study. In Global Strategic Trends – Out to 2045, a Ministry of Defence think tank also forecasts that 3.6bn people will suffer water shortages and terrorists will have access to cheap, unmanned drones and space satellites. The Observer

10. Richard Linklater's new drama Boyhood, opens in UK cinemas last week. Filmed over 12 years, it tells the story of a boy's life from age six to 18, as he becomes man and faces life's challenges. With Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette. "An astonishing achievement," says The Guardian.
