Whilst some positive progress has been made, it is evident that these policies are not yet sufficient to reverse the increase in obesity and type 2 Diabetes not to mention various related cancers, heart disease and tooth decay.If Theresa May and her ministers are to finally tackle this burning injustice of health inequality, we need a much more robust and hard hitting plan to take immediate effect.
According to AppCensus, well over 18000 applications on Google s Play Store were found to be in violation of its Advertising ID Policy. The California based organization aims to provide users with a better understanding of how mobile apps use their data. The study found that popular applications with millions of downloads such as Clean Master, Subway Surfers, Angry Birds Classic and Flipboard had been sending persistent identifiers such as IMEI numbers, SIM card serial numbers, WiFi MAC addresses, etc., along with ad IDs.
The apps can track you by linking your Advertising ID a unique but resettable number used to tailor advertising with other identifiers on your phone that are difficult or impossible to change. Those IDs are the device;s unique signatures: the MAC address, IMEI and Android ID. Less than a third of the apps that collect identifiers take only the Advertising ID, as recommended by Google;s best practices for developers. "Privacy disappears " when apps collect those persistent identifiers, said Serge Egelman, who led the research. He said his team, which reported the findings to Google in September, observed most of the apps sending identifying information to advertising services, an apparent violation of Google 's policies.

So it s jarring when something breaks the pattern. A resolution from the US House of Representatives that proposes national, urgent action on climate change and more well, we re not used to that. A vast set of policies to fight climate change, prepare for its effects, address income inequality, and save working class jobs, fronted by a brand new congressperson with a national profile Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, New York s AOC? That s new. The so called Green New Deal reads like a wholesale reset to the Democratic Party platform, weaving the existential threat of a warming planet into old school liberal themes. Defend the working class. Clean up pollution. Give people health care and housing.

Eight year old Gabby Turner is on the autism spectrum. But years of treatment has helped tremendously. He went from non verbal to having words, says Gabby s mother Raquel Turner. I never even thought that could exist for me. But the Ford government s plan to overhaul Ontario s autism program has left parents like Gabby s terrified. Taking this away is taking everything. It s taking my life away, says Turner. They re taking life from children; innocent, vulnerable children. The plan will see parents with autistic children under the age of six receive a maximum of $140,000 for treatment up until the age of eighteen. Kids older than six will receive up to $55,000. But advocates say intensive therapy can cost up to $80,000 per year. What s devastating is the impact this is going to have first and foremost on the children, says Psychologist James Porter. IBI Behavioural Services, a group of treatment centres in Barrie, currently helps 175 children. They also have a waiting list. Inadequate treatment and intervention means these children will not be able to reach the potential growth and development they would otherwise make, says Porter. Some parents say they will be forced to sell their homes and take other dramatic steps. If we sell every asset that we have we get maybe eight months of therapy. If we sell everything. says another parent Ross Maclean. So what are you going to do? We re going to fight. Ontario s Minister in charge of the autism program, Lisa MacLeod, says she will continue to stand unapologetically for the funding changes. MacLeod says the funding will go directly to families instead of regional service providers, which she says will ensure that 23,000 kids currently on the wait list will get treatment. MacLeod says she has compassion for the parents, as everyone wants the best for their child, but it was "cruel " that about one quarter of kids with autism in Ontario were receiving treatment while the rest were on a waitlist. The Ontario Autism Coalition, which protested Liberal policies in 2016 until they were rolled back, says it will fight changes to the program. With files from the Canadian Press

Facebook has historically played Whac a Mole when it comes to systems of fraudulent pages, even when they re run by the same person. If a troll runs two fake news pages but only one of them violates Facebook s policies, the company can t take down the other until it breaks the rules as well. That loophole has allowed propagandists to simply shift their efforts to other existing pages after Facebook closes down one arm of their operation. But starting today, the social network will begin removing entire factions of pages and groups, even when not all of them have individually met Facebook s criteria to be removed.

Key property markets in Vancouver and Toronto, which has been struggling, could be the next casualties as the diplomatic spat between China and Canada that broke out in the wake of the arrest of a Huawei executive keeps intensifying.Top Chinese real estate agencies have canceled some Canadian real estate investment promotion events, and some sensitive investors have given up their buying plans, industry sources said.Canada's detention of Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou has caused a diplomatic spat between the two countries. The tensions could empty key property markets in Canada, such as Vancouver, of Chinese real estate investors, housing agents said on Sunday.A department head of the Canada branch business of a top real estate agency in China told the Global Times on condition of anonymity that the agency canceled some Canada promotional events and encouraged potential new Chinese investors to start shifting their migration destinations or delay their investment plans."A few sensitive investors dropped their plans ... about 10 percent," the agent based in Beijing said. "Some investors are delaying their plans, considering the spat to be a temporary incident."A 28 year old Chinese surnamed Lu who has studied and lived in the Canadian city of Montreal for eight years, told the Global Times on Sunday that she is reconsidering her plan to buy a house after the incident involving Meng."I have scheduled a time to submit my immigration application, but I'm thinking of postponing it as well as my plan to buy a house in Canada because I'm disappointed with the Canadian government I don't understand why the officials are meddling in political affairs between China and the US," Lu said.The anger has spread among the Chinese community in Canada, which had already lost faith in the economic policies of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's administration, according to Evan Tang, a real estate broker in Toronto, traditionally a hotspot for Chinese property investment."As December is generally a low season for the Canadian property market and dealers and potential buyers are usually on vacation, we have not witnessed a significant change so far," Tang told the Global Times.Chinese investors have been seen as a major force driving up key Canadian property markets' housing prices in recent decades. But prices have experienced corrections due to foreign buyers' taxes that British Columbia province introduced in 2016.Greater Vancouver's home sales dropped 42.5 percent in November, compared with the same month a year earlier, according to the local real estate board.Wang Lunwen, CEO of Sky Migration, told the Global Times that Chinese enthusiasm to invest in Canadian property has already been cooling, after the Canadian government tightened its immigration policy and slapped an additional 15 to 20 percent property tax on foreign buyers most of whom are Chinese. "The detention of Meng has tarnished the country's image among Chinese, which will further reduce its attractiveness in terms of investment," Wang added.A slowdown in the Canadian housing market which accounts for 7.6 percent of its GDP, based on a report by Moody's could potentially weigh on the country's economy, industry insiders pointed out. For example, unlike the titanic Chinese developers, the Canadian real estate market is characterized by smaller and fragmented local developers that are much more vulnerable to downturns. "If home prices stop soaring, developers would experience slow capital returns and have a hard time borrowing from financial institutions," said Wang.
