AskTen - Ten amazing things you may not have known last week
http://askten.co.uk


1. The Oxford English Dictionary editors have chosen vape - to smoke an e-cigarette - as its 2014 word of the year. The rise of e-cigarettes was cited as the reason for the skyrocketing use of the word - along with countless debates over the safety of using them long term. The 2013 word of the year was “selfie,” describing the decidedly less controversial self-portrait taken with a smartphone. Daily Mail

2. Australian actor and “Thor” avenger Chris Hemsworth is the world’s sexiest man, according to the U.S. magazine People. Past choices of the magazine, which began handing out the accolade in a 1985 cover story on fellow Australian Mel Gibson, have ranged in age from 27, with John F. Kennedy Jr. in 1988, to 59, with Sean Connery a year later. Johnny Depp, George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Richard Gere have each been chosen twice. Metro

3. Seven of the 30 largest U.S. corporations paid more money to their chief executive officers last year than they paid in federal income taxes, according to a new study. The seven companies cited were Boeing Co, Ford Motor Co, Chevron Corp, Citigroup Inc, Verizon Communications Inc, JPMorgan Chase & Co and General Motors Co. CBC News

4. If you owned Apple and sold it, you could purchase the entire stock market of Russia, and still have enough change to buy every Russian an iPhone 6 Plus. The value of Russian equities has slumped $234 billion to $531 billion this year, while Apple gained $147 billion to $652 billion. Bloomberg
5. More than half of British parents would rather not brave the outdoors with their children, preferring to hang out with them at home. According to a recent survey. 18% find it stressful to be outside with their families, while 41% fear for their children’s safety when they go for a walk. Daily Telegraph

6. Scientists have found that a 10-second kiss can transfer as many as 80 million different types of bacteria. It was already known the mouth is home to 700 million different types of bug. Now, the new report by Dutch researchers reveals how some are more easily exchanged than others. The Times

7. UK inflation rose to 1.3% in October, up from its five-year low of 1.2% last month. The slight increase is down to a relative increase in transport costs compared to the same period last year. Computer games and toy prices also prompted the jump in the CPI index. However, food and non-alcoholic beverages are 1.4% cheaper than they were a year ago. Financial Times

8. The government has been criticised for its handling of obesity after a report by McKinsey Global Institute (MGI) found the crisis in people’s weight costs the UK more than it spends on armed violence, war and terrorism combined. It accuses the government of a “fragmented” and ineffective response. Daily Express

9. Police are failing to officially record one in five of the crimes reported to them, a damning report has revealed. An inspection of all 43 forces showed that 800,000 offences a year were not logged as crimes. Over a quarter of sexual offences were not recorded, while the figure for crimes of violence against the person was even higher at a third. The report by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) posed the question: “To what extent can police-recorded crime information be trusted?” The Observer

10. Frank Sinatra’s My Way has been replaced by Monty Python’s Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life as the most popular song played at funerals, new research has found. A study by The Co-operative Funeralcare showed that traditional hymns, football anthems and classic pop songs top the list of the funeral music chart. The top 10 included Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life, The Lord Is My Shepherd, Abide With Me, Match Of The Day theme, My Way, All Things Bright And Beautiful and Angels by Robbie Williams. The Times
