General Election 2019: Leaders pitch for the business vote – BBC News



Party leaders made their case to business leaders at the annual gathering of the Confederation of British Industry in London. The Prime Minister announced the Conservatives would postpone a planned cut in corporation tax next year, saving around £6bn, and spend the money on priorities such as the NHS. Jeremy Corbyn insisted that Labour was not ‘anti-business’ and promised more investment for businesses. Meanwhile Jo Swinson told delegates that the Liberal Democrats were the ‘natural party of business’ because they wanted to cancel Brexit.

With just over three weeks until the December 12th election, the BBC’s Chief Political Correspondent Vicki Young takes a look at the electoral map and which parts of the UK the party’s campaign strategists will be keeping a close eye on, where the overall result could be determined.

Adult Social Care – or how to pay for older people and those over eighteen with disabilities – is an area at breaking point across the UK and likely to become a key election issue. Alison Holt investigates the issue in England, where the system is widely acknowledged to be in urgent need of reform and more money.

How to Network Today to Accelerate Your Genomics and Genetics Career

What does it mean to connect the dots, and how do you even detect the dots you want to connect?

Connect the dots originated from a picture game linking numbered dots in order, without lifting your writing instrument, to form a drawing. Today, it has evolved into a colloquialism about discovering a pattern and linking different ideas and experiences. These connections exist in the choices you make to solve problems, address day-to-day challenges, and find solutions for yourself and your teams.

In life and work, detecting the essential dots requires the ability to zoom in on and pan out from the things that define an issue. This means you need to be able to see both the minute details and the big picture.

Just like in the original game, you need to be able to stay in touch with moving to the next dot by zooming in on the task at hand and, at the same time, keep a clear, concise picture of the other issues, risks and resources related to the task, ensuring you don’t stray. Specifical

Attacks and celebration as Lebanon PM resigns – BBC News



Lebanon’s Prime Minister Saad Hariri has announced his resignation after 13 days of protests over political corruption and economic turmoil.

His televised address came soon after violence broke out on the streets, when supporters of two Shia groups attacked protest camps and roadblocks in Beirut.

They set tents on fire and beat anti-government demonstrators. Some chanted in support of Nasrallah, the leader for Hezbollah – a powerful force in the coalition government – and the Shia political party Amal.

Riot police and troops responded with tear gas, and by the end of the day, anti-government protesters were back on the streets celebrating Mr Hariri’s announcement.
