Children risk falling behind by the age of four because nursery teachers are poorly educated, a new report suggests.

A quarter of early years practitioners - which includes child-minders as well as nursery teachers and assistants - have no qualifications beyond GCSEs, according to the Education Policy Institute (EPI).

Meanwhile A-levels are their highest qualification for just over a third (36 per cent) of those working with toddlers, the report found.

sage negated



Devil's advocate: why would I earn a PhD and six figures of debt, just to babysit toddlers?


If what we know now isn't valuable, how do we expect future generations to learn anything valuable as well?


women control education, but they're idiots.


The only decent teachers are male. The women are absolutely unhinged sadistic pieces of shit. I love to see them fail and bitch and complain. Ever see a teacher who took any opinions right of Marx as legitimate? Me neither. Other than maybe a guy or 2 in high school.

How do you do, fellow kids? After Facebook Watch, Lasso, and IGTV failed to become hits with teens, the company has been quietly developing another youthful video product. Multiple sources confirm that Facebook has spent months building LOL, a special feed of funny videos and GIF-like clips. It’s divided into categories like “For You”, “Animals”, “Fails”, “Pranks” and more with content pulled from News Feed posts by top meme Pages on Facebook. LOL is currently in private beta with around 100 high school students who signed non-disclosure agreements with parental consent to do focus groups and one-on-one testing with Facebook staff.

In response to TechCrunch’s questioning, Facebook confirmed it is privately testing LOL as a home for funny meme content with a very small number of US users. While those testers experience LOL as a replacement for their Watch tab, Facebook says there’s no plans to roll out LOL in Watch and the team is still finalizing whether it will become a separate feature in one of Facebook’s main app or a standalone app. Facebook declined to give a formal statement but told us the details we had were accurate.

It seems that Google may be stepping up its Pixel design game and ditching that giant ugly notch. A new patent filed with the World Intellectual Property Organization shows a clean display devoid of notches, holes, foreheads or chins.

It’s actually the second patent that describes a notchless, almost bezelless Pixel. Phone site 91mobiles reported on that one yesterday. That one also shows two speakers, one one the top and another on the bottom, which would offer stereo sound while playing movies and games.

Niantic, the developer of "Pokémon Go" and the forthcoming "Harry Potter: Wizards Unite," says that it's now valued at "almost $4 billion," following a $245 million funding round led by IVP, with participation from strategic investors Samsung and Axiomatic Gaming.

John Hanke, the CEO of Niantic, tells Business Insider that the company didn't need the money, strictly speaking: "Pokémon Go," revitalized by a plethora of fan-requested features, has brought in over $2 billion of revenues since its 2016 launch, says Hanke. Furthermore, he says, Niantic is cash-flow positive — which is different from profitable — and still has lots of cash in the bank from previous investment rounds.

Still, Hanke says, the time was right, as he foresees a crunch coming, where it'll be harder for companies like Niantic to raise investment capital amid a possible economic downturn. He's not necessarily against Niantic getting acquired, he says, and indeed, Niantic itself spun out of Google. Still, it's hard to guess how much control a would-be buyer would exert, and staying independent is the best way to ensure that Niantic gets to do what it wants to do.

As more and more movie streaming services crop up, Netflix says it's not concerned with comparing itself to the competition. Instead, Netflix is more worried about keeping members watching instead of choosing another type of entertainment entirely — like video games.

In its Q4 earnings report out Thursday, Netflix said it accounts for roughly 10% of all television screen time, with viewers streaming 100 million hours of content per day. By the close of 2018, the company had 139 million subscribers and had raised revenue by 35%, but still fell short of their earnings expectations for Q4. And in an increasingly diverse entertainment landscape, Netflix is now facing stiff competition from the likes of "Fortnite."

"We earn consumer screen time, both mobile and television, away from a very broad set of competitors," the quarterly earnings statement read. "We compete with (and lose to) 'Fortnite' more than HBO."

Microsoft says anyone who still uses its Windows 10 mobile platform — once called Windows Phone — should switch over to an iPhone or an Android phone. A change to the Windows 10 Mobile support page was first spotted by Thurrott, a site that covers Microsoft.

Microsoft said that on December 10, 2019 it will stop sending "new security updates, non-security hotfixes, free assisted support options, or technical content updates from Microsoft for free." In other words, there aren't going to be any more updates, and only a few phone models will even be supported until that final date.

"With the Windows 10 Mobile OS end of support, we recommend that customers move to a supported Android or iOS device," Microsoft said. "Microsoft's mission statement to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more, compels us to support our Mobile apps on those platforms and devices."

Shaving product manufacturer Gillette received an overwhelmingly negative response to its latest advertisement campaign, which takes a stand against “toxic masculinity.”

The advertisement, which received over 330,000 dislikes on YouTube against just 75,000 likes, asked viewers, “Is this the best a man can get?” in a twist on the company’s classic tagline, “The best a man can get,” and took on a number of issues, including sexual harassment and bullying, but also masculinity.

At the start of the video, “toxic masculinity” is read out as one of the main negative issues in society, along with “bullying,” and “sexual harassment.”

In another part of the video, a row of fathers declaring “boys will be boys” at two boys fighting are shown to be the bad guys, before one father intervenes and says, “That’s not how we treat each other, okay?”

The ill-fated Windows 10 October 2018 Update has hitherto been offered only to those Windows users who manually sought it, either by using the dedicated upgrade and media creation tools or by manually checking for the update in Windows Update. Three months after its initial release, Microsoft has at last started pushing it to Windows users automatically.

The update was originally withdrawn because of a data loss bug. A month after the initial release, the bug was fixed and the fixed update was made available. Even this release was limited, with a number of blocks in place due to known incompatibilities. As described above, it was then only offered to those taking certain manual steps to update their machines. One month ago, these blocks were largely removed.

Even with automatic deployment and installation now enabled, the beleaguered update is still rolling out in phases. Initially, it will be offered to spaces where Microsoft is most confident that the update will be trouble-free—machines with configurations already known and tested. As the tap is slowly opened more and the update is made available to a wider range of hardware, the company will use operating system telemetry to detect any lingering incompatibilities with device drivers or unusual software.

Cortana might not be the most popular voice assistant around, but Satya Nadella doesn’t have a problem with that. Microsoft’s CEO told media this week that the company’s strategy isn’t to expand its assistant’s reach at the expense of rivals like Google Assistant, Apple’s Siri, or Amazon’s Alexa, but rather to work with competitors to incorporate Cortana in existing devices.

Cortana needs to be that skill for anybody who’s a Microsoft 365 subscriber,” he told the Verge. “You should be able to use it on Google Assistant, you should be able to use it on Alexa, just like how you use our apps on Android and iOS, so that’s at least how we want to think about where it’ll go.”

Nadella’s comments follow Microsoft’s recent decision to decouple search and Cortana in the Windows 10 taskbar. And they come after Microsoft CTO Kevin Scott said people shouldn’t expect to see a native Microsoft smart speaker anytime soon, in the vein of Apple’s HomePod or Samsung’s Galaxy Home.

With around 80 million players worldwide, Fortnite is the undisputed champion of global online gaming. Epic Games, developers of Fortnite, cannot lay claim to a similar title when it comes to security it would seem. Security researchers at Check Point have discovered vulnerabilities that would let hackers win their own criminal Battle Royale against Fortnite players. The security flaws meant attackers would be able to take over player accounts and gain access to their V-bucks game currency using the player's payment details, as well as in-game contacts and the ability to record in-game conversations and eavesdrop on conversations taking place at the player's home.

Check Point's security researchers found that just three flaws were enough to put the accounts of 80 million players at risk of takeover, without the players realizing that they had been compromised until their V-bucks were stolen. Unlike other scams that have targeted Fortnite players, and which required a successful deception to lure them to a fake website where logion credentials could be scraped, the new vulnerabilities would enable the exploit to happen in-game and with minimal player interaction.

Indeed, the attack methodology was surprisingly straightforward according to the researchers who found that a single click on a malicious link was enough to capture the player Fortnite authentication token. The player would not be required to enter login credentials and the link could be sent as a Fortnite chat message so as not to arouse suspicion. These messages could be created so as to appear to be coming from Epic Games and offering free V-bucks or game credits.

Office messaging app Slack is changing its logo because it says the current one "pained" the company and was "simply awful."

It will no longer use the colorful hashtag that it used when it launched in 2013 and has instead designed a four-color logo using lozenge and speech bubble shapes.

While the company says it liked elements of its original logo, its 11 colors made it very easy to get wrong, the firm said in a blog post Wednesday.

"If placed on any color other than white, or at the wrong angle (instead of the precisely prescribed 18-degree rotation), or with the colors tweaked wrong, it looked terrible. It pained us … Simply awful," the post, authored by Slack Team, stated.

>'The Commission has heard multiple staff raise concerns of elitism… racism and colonial behaviour… sexism, rigid hierarchies and patriarchy'

The work environment at Oxfam is marked by "racism, colonial behaviour and bullying behaviours", according to a new report.

The interim report produced by the independent commission, set up by Oxfam International in the wake of the Haiti scandal in 2018 to assess the company's culture, found it has a "toxic work environment".



Not Oxfam? Not the great and noble charity? Not all those trustafarian memsahibs who travel the world to patronize the poor brown people?


Never mind, it's fake news.

>The Fifth Estate spoke with several women affected by polygamous marriage

As some women in Canada's Muslim community are speaking out against polygamous marriages in their community, a CBC reporter says charges and convictions related to the practice are "extremely rare" in Canada.

"[The] law banning polygamy has been on the books for about 127 years," said the CBC's Habiba Nosheen, who has been investigating the issue for The Fifth Estate.

yes. you can even get "spiritually married" and run your own sex cult so long as the government doesn't have to sort your shit out when you get divorced or die without a will. no papers in the courthouse means it's not a marriage in the goverment's eyes and they stop giving a single fuck how many indoctrinated teenage mistresses you take.



You can even impregnate all of them and the government will not punish you if the women don't press charges for child support. But even then your only punishment would be child support.



Not only that, men were meant to have more than one wife. Biologically speaking, it was meant to be

The first stop T-Mobile executives made after announcing a deal last April to buy Sprint was President Donald Trump’s Washington D.C. hotel, according to a Washington Post report published Wednesday.

Nine T-Mobile executives, including CEO John Legere, appeared on what the Post called a daily “VIP Arrivals” list the hotel gives its staff. Repeat visits have followed, it said, as T-Mobile seeks federal approval for its $26 billion deal with Sprint.

Just last week, Legere was spotted in the hotel’s lobby and talked with a Post reporter.

“It’s become a place I feel very comfortable,” Legere said, according to the Post. The Post said Legere had cited the hotel’s location near federal offices that house some who are reviewing the deal.
