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


1. As increasing numbers of women delay having families while they build careers, figures revealed that one in five new mothers is aged 35 or older. The statistics for 2013 showed that 51 per cent of all live births were to mothers in their 30s. The average age of first-time mothers is now at a record high of 28.3 years. Nearly two-thirds of births were to fathers aged 30 and over. Office for National Statistics

2. FTSE 100 bosses earn 120 times more than the average worker. The average total earnings were £2.4m, rising to £3.3m for chief executives. According to research from Incomes Data Services, wage growth for the overall workforce trails well behind inflation, rising by 0.6% in the three months to July compared with the same period a year earlier. The Times.

3. High property costs mean that small and medium-sized businesses, the backbone of the UK economy, are finding it increasingly difficult to make a living in London. A study puts London 18th of 24 in its Small Business Cities Burden Index, below cities including New York, Dublin and Tokyo. Commercial rents in central London have increased by about 13.5% this year. Financial Times

4. Michael Jackson has topped Forbes’ list of high-earning dead celebrities. Over the last year the deceased pop legend generated a haul of $140m, almost three times as much as second-placed Elvis Presley, who made a comparatively poor $55m over the same period. Jacko's estate made a fortune on the back of his second posthumous album release Xscape. Daily Mail

5. British MPs have voted overwhelmingly in favour of a motion to recognise the state of Palestine. The motion was passed 274-12 after the first full debate on the issue since 2012. The result is not binding on the UK government and David Cameron has said the official non-recognition will not change. The Observer

6. Unruly dogs could be placed under ‘dogbos’ that come into force next week. The owners of dogs that aggressively chase cats, run wild in parks or “alarm” postmen could face criminal prosecution, fines of up to £20,000 or the prospect of theirs pets being seized. They could also be forced to neuter their pet and attend training classes. Daily Telegraph

7. The chief executive of the NHS is urging staff to take a lead in the anti-obesity fight by joining gyms. Simon Stevens says the NHS should become an agent for social change and lead by example as it is revealed that one in five young people and one in four adults in the UK now suffer from obesity, which each year causes 34,000 deaths and costs the NHS more than £1bn. Daily Express

8. The asking price for a forecourt in Mayfair with parking space for eight cars is an astonishing £2.25m. It is thought to be the most expensive London car park on record. The buyer will also need to pay a service charge and ground rent. The same sum would buy a 16th-century castle in Scotland or a six-bedroom villa in Ealing. Daily Mail

9. Apple, the inventor of the iPad and the iPhone, had the most valuable brand in the world for the second year running. The value of its fruity logo – created in 1977 by Rob Janoff, with a bite out of it to avoid confusion with a cherry, grew by 21% over the past year. New York Times
