Videos of the week - Infected Blood - Time for Answers

Between 1970 and the early 1990s more than 30,000 people in the UK were infected with HIV and Hepatitis C through contaminated blood products and transfusions. It has been described as the worst treatment disaster in NHS history. Since then, around 3,000 of those infected have died, but many of their relatives have yet to receive any compensation. A public inquiry opened in 2018 to discover what really happened, and in May it will deliver its final report. Reporter Jim Reed meets the families of some of the 380 children with bleeding disorders who were infected with HIV and talks to them about what they have lost, their campaign for justice, and what they hope for from the inquiry.

Why language matters: how using terms like ‘recruited’ and ‘working’ minimise children’s experiences of criminal exploitation

When you hear the words ‘recruited’ or ‘working’ you probably think about legal, safe employment. However, these terms are used by those who groom and coerce children and young people into criminal activity such as moving money and drugs. When these terms are also used by the wider public and by safeguarding professionals it can reinforce this idea of ‘working’ and legitimise child criminal exploitation (CCE).

Education Secretary begins push to recruit 6,500 new teachers

Labour pledged during the election campaign to make the recruitment of 6,500 teachers a priority of the new government.

The party said it would fund the new posts by adding tax to private school fees - although it is unclear exactly when this will happen.

The policy, proposed in Labour’s manifesto, has split opinion. Some argue it is a reasonable way to raise revenue while others think it is an unfair charge that will fall on parents.

The power of mastering your body clock

Our bodies work on a roughly 24-hour cycle. It’s called the body clock, circadian clock, or circadian rhythm.

Eating and sleeping at the right times are really important ways to align with the circadian rhythm and reduce the risk of chronic disease.

Sustainability


Nature’s network: how Restor is revolutionising rainforest conservation

Crowther Lab science helps to highlight the importance of Rainforests for our well-being and the stability of our planet.

Rainforests are rich havens of biodiversity and wilderness, crucial climate regulators, and vital sources of food, medicine and housing materials for hundreds of millions of people. They serve as essential defences against extreme poverty, supporting livelihoods and sustaining communities around the world. However, these ecosystems are under extreme strain. Since the 20th century the rate of resource extraction and land-use change has increased exponentially, exacerbating the fragmentation and destruction of these ecosystems and intensifying climate change. This threatens the stability of our planet, directly undermines the livelihoods of millions of local communities, and pushes the Earth closer to tipping points that affect every single one of us.
