Between 1986 and 1995, the number of general and senior managers rose from 1,000 to 26,000 and admin costs rose from 5% of overall spend to 12%. As more and more of hospital budgets were diverted to paying managers, hospitals looked to other ways of making money (inviting fast-food outlets into their “retails spaces,” charging for car-parking, telephone calls, watching the television etc). Hospital meals and cleaning were outsourced to private firms, driving down quality in the process (the proliferation of superbugs like MRSA has been linked to the shoddy practices of some of these contractors). And the comprehensiveness of healthcare - all services being free at the point of entry - was eroded.
The discovery has led them to suggest such organisms could have been the origin of life on Earth.
They subjected the bug, Deinococcus radiodurans, to powerful radiation, freezing temperatures and a vacuum, all designed to simulate conditions found on meteorites and other rocks in space.

The question with Leica’s compact cameras is always how different they are then the Panasonic version and whether it’s worth the extra dough for the red dot. The Leica models always look a little better but when you check the specs they don’t appear to be much different from what Panasonic offers. However, there is an important difference that is not at all obvious. At least that was the case with the Panasonic LX3 and Leica D-Lux 4. The camera body, controls and basic specs may be the same, but Leica has their own JPEG processing.
It’s been a while since I’ve done a back-to-back comparison with a Leica and Panasonic. But when I did, the difference in JPEG image quality was dramatic. The Leica files were much larger, indicating far less compression; and Leica claims to be doing their own processing for better color and contrast.

Nothing new here, move on? But it’s worth repeating: After 25 years of buying music on physical media I have stopped and opted for a Spotify Premium subscription instead.
It’s the paperbacks, the generic CDs and DVDs that are the problem. Mass produced and soulless, the only reason they exist is to carry the content, with a side effect of a cover purely designed to sell.
