No one knows how many homeless people there are. Countries define homelessness differently; count only those sleeping rough and in shelters on one night night in a year; struggle to estimate those camping with friends or family and living in bad housing or places not meant to be homes. But what’s clear is the number is increasing. Homelessness and exclusion from housing has now reached crisis point in almost all EU countries, a 2017 Europe-wide report found: families in temporary housing up 50% in London; a 75% rise in youth homelessness in Copenhagen; 37% more sleeping rough in Warsaw. In the US, according to a White House study published in September, 552,830 people were counted as homeless in January 2018, nearly half of them in California, with 35% sleeping rough and 65% living in some form of shelter. In Australia, homelessness increased by 14% between the 2011 and 2016 censuses. But homelessness is not an inevitability.

CHELSEA are reportedly in pole position to re-sign Nathan Ake despite strong interest from Manchester City. Sky Sports claims the Blues are favourites to land the Bournemouth star thanks to a £40m buy-back clause. Chelsea sold Ake, 24, to the Cherries for just £20m in the wake of their 2017 title win. Ake played the first half of the season on loan at Bournemouth. But Antonio Conte decided to sell him back to Eddie Howe despite the defender’s reputation as one of Chelsea’s brightest young prospects. Ake has since gone from strength to strength on the south coast, playing all 38 league games in each of his last two seasons while becoming a regular in the Netherlands squad.It’s now reckoned Chelsea boss Frank Lampard wants the club to re-sign Ake after being left unimpressed with Kurt Zouma and Andreas Christensen.

Exactly a year since famed New York chef Mario Batali was accused of multiple sexual misconduct allegations and forced to leave his restaurant empire behind, Batali is still raking in the cash. Although business dropped some 30 per cent at the restaurants he had ties with, despite walking away from day-to-day operations, all of Batali's financial ties are still intact. In April it was revealed by the New York Times that Batali would divest from his restaurants, allowing his partners to buy out his stake which could have been worth as much as $100 million at its height, and is currently in the tens of millions, at least. Although Mario Batali's restaurants are not as successful as they once were, he's still profiting from them with all his business ties still intact But the negotiations which were meant to close in July, have dragged on and it means that anyone who eats out at restaurants Batali made famous is still lining the pockets of the disgraced … [Read more...] about REVEALED: Disgraced TV chef Mario Batali is now living on the tip of the Michigan peninsula after moving to escape his New York sex scandal (but he’s still profiting from his empire)
