child (1)

The company behind thousands of the UK’s fixed-odds betting terminals (FOBTs) is offering gambling-style apps on Facebook without age checks, prompting allegations that children are being exposed to the risk of addiction.

Experts have warned that games mimicking real-life gambling are the “number one risk factor” for developing a problem later in life. Tom Watson, Labour’s deputy leader, who ha... Read More »

education (1)

Successive reforms of strict prohibitions on foreign-owned schools has seen the number of students enrolled in international schools rise, with the Chinese market now the largest in the world. And the most lucrative end of the market is in line for a significant fillip in 2018 following changes introduced this year.

A new approach to the quantum measurement problem

Universiteit Ams

The final state thus reached yields information about a large statistical ensemble of runs but does not describe individual runs of the measurement. The authors note that decompositions of this final state may gene... Read More »
