He wants the production set down. equivocal. He wants the production If this were, say, set in Uganda and we had a lot of actors playing Ugandan roles who were Caucasian, there would be uproar. We must remember that East Asian artists are no different to the black community. The difference is, it is a smaller community. The black community has fought for decades to ensure that actually, white actors don't play Othello. I think we should have the same respect of East Asians in this country when there is a play that can very clearly encourage East Asian artists in this country. They have been invisible for so long.

"Government will need to understand the needs of the sector in detail and persuade its counterparts across Europe of the benefit of striking a positive deal," added Walker. "The risk of falling off a regulatory cliff edge in two years' time has not gone away. However, if a smooth and orderly exit can be achieved from the EU, then the UK's thriving tech sector can go onto to be the powerhouse of global Britain." Certainties are hard to come by and the only thing businesses now know for sure is that we will not be members of the single market once negotiations are complete in 2019. The specifics of that deal will be fundamental to the future of the technology industry, particularly with regard to the ease with which companies can source talented professionals from across the EU. Digital skills shortage According to job search website Indeed, the UK digital skills gap is now second worst in the world – only Israel has fewer job searches for cybersecurity roles.

All of this is good news, and supercaps have begun to take on some roles traditionally assigned to batteries. But supercaps still lag behind batteries in terms of storage. New advances in technology, such as the use of graphene and other compounds, may increase capacity in the near future, making the supercapacitor a real option to replace the battery. For now, manufacturing remains expensive, and physical size means that even if you are willing to splurge on price you still can't get a reasonable replacement for today's Li-ion toting mobiles. Perhaps the next trend in smartphones will be a return to the brick design, making room for supercaps to utilize their rapid charging and long service life. Until then we wait for manufacturing advancements that can fit larger plates into a smaller space. Filed under: Engineering , Featured

There is a basic, fundamental truth about the American college or university operating model: It doesn't work. In the second half of the twentieth century, America's colleges and universities moved toward a similar operating model, depending upon their size, purpose, and funding source. Some scaled up to the research powerhouses that we know today. A few have even become something resembling complex real estate holding companies and investment banks. Most also serve as the "eds and meds" economic engines that power the state and regional economies in which they are located. On the public side, local jurisdictions and state governments played historic roles in offering subsidies matched by federal student grants and loans. These colleges became the first choice institutions selected by first generation college students, although the selective flagships blurred the family income line as they established programs like honors colleges.

Clare Hopping 7 min 7 sec ago Business IT workers don't like their jobs. At least, that's what research from Investors in People has revealed as a whopping 76% of IT staffers will be in search of a new job this year. It's not clear if this is simple "the grass is always greener" outlook on their jobs, but these findings fly in the face of industry predictions suggesting people would want to remain in their current roles due to economic uncertainties. According to the annual Job Exodus Trends report, 42% of IT staff are already looking for a new job just one week into 2017. “We were expecting to see British workers planning to stay put in the face of economic uncertainty," Paul Devoy, head of Investors in People said. "But we’ve seen exactly the opposite: a significant rise in people seeking to move employers in 2017 and a jump in jobs confidence.
