Why natural disasters happen
LONDON — In the spare bedroom of Sarah Cuffe's house are piles of food and toiletries. Natural disasters don't hit the English county of Hertfordshire very often but it looks like she's ready for one. "Just in case the worst comes to the worst, we thought we've got a spare bedroom, so why not stockpile stuff like pasta, tinned tomatoes [British for canned tomatoes], things aren't going to go off," she told NBC News. "We've got loo roll [British slang for toilet paper], cleaning products, multivitamins and nuts for protein." But the mother of two isn't getting ready for a hurricane. Instead, she is one of the many Britons stockpiling goods in case of the most chaotic and unpredictable Brexit outcome: The United Kingdom leaving the European Union without a negotiated withdrawal agreement. A "no-deal" Brexit — which is scheduled to happen on Friday, April 12 if 27 EU leaders don't unanimously agree to delay the process further — would leave the UK floundering without … [Read more...] about The UK spends billions, stockpiles for chaotic Brexit that may never happen

We need schools to teach the current climate … [Read more...] about Why I went on strike from school to protest climate change
The word repeated over and over across New Zealand is "Why?" Why was the country, thought of as among the most peaceful in the world, singled out for a horrifying terrorist attack? This South Pacific nation, hailed by Muslim immigrants as a "heaven on earth", ranks second only to Iceland on the Global Peace Index. But in just 36 minutes on Friday afternoon, 49 Muslims were shot dead at two Christchurch mosques, leaving more dead than there were murders in all of last year. In a country where police routinely patrol unarmed, parents strained to explain to their kids what happened, even as they struggled to understand it themselves. A sole gunman "made the point that there is nowhere that's far enough away", said Chris, who took his children aged 12, nine and four, to the scene of the Linwood mosque where seven were gunned down. "It's a fine line between telling the children this is the reality of it," he said, "and not exposing them to the true nature of humanity that can lead to this … [Read more...] about New Zealand struggles to answer ‘why’ in wake of massacre
The importance of devising and then implementing an effective cybersecurity plan has never been greater. Not only do these plans ensure that corporate data is protected but - equally importantly - they also ensure that customers and employees are safeguarded. But what's the best way to create and implement a plan? And what should it contain? Here, Dr Daniel Prince, associate director and business partnerships manager for Security Lancaster, Lancaster University’s security research centre, places the issues in context. Just what's your advice to companies when it comes to planning for cybersecurity? Cyber security is more than just a technological solution - it is a cultural approach to digital business. It is vital for businesses to think about how they build a cyber secure culture. This cultural change is much harder than the quick wins of technological intervention, but has a more significant and lasting impact. A cyber secure culture does more than just protect an … [Read more...] about Why tightening cybersecurity should be at the top of your to-do list
