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

1. Barnardo’s calculated that one in five families in England would not have been able to afford a trip to the seaside on bank holiday Monday last week. Looking at the cost of train tickets, fish and chips and sun cream, the charity estimated that a day trip could cost as much as £172.20 and blames welfare cuts for poverty. Metro

2. Networking, risk-taking and ruthlessness are the keys to running your own business, as well as being aged 31, a survey has found. Only six per cent of entrepreneurs feel academic qualifications were vital to success, with eight per cent saying their good looks had helped their chances. However, a third of those polled make less money and work longer hours than they had expected. BBC

3. There was a "statistically significant" rise in immigration in the year to March according to new figures. Net migration into the UK totalled 243,000 in the 12-month period, up almost 40% on the previous year. Some 560,000 people, most from the EU, entered the country and 316,000 left. David Cameron has pledged to reduce annual net migration to 100,000. The Times

4. The latest figures, from the 2012 Health Survey for England, show that 14% of children aged two to 15 were obese and 28% were classed as overweight or obese. Those aged 11 to 15 were more likely to be obese with one in five children placed in that category. In children aged two to 10, 10% of both boys and girls were obese. Daily Mail

5. The World Health Organization has called for a ban on the use of electronc cigarettes indoors and says age restrictions should be introduced to stop children using them. A new report says e-cigarettes are likely to be less harmful than traditional ones but says they should not be promoted as devices that can help people quit. Daily Express

6. The UK is deeply elitist according to an analysis of the backgrounds of more than 4,000 business, political, media and public sector leaders. The Social Mobility and Child Poverty Commission study found that 71% of senior judges, 62% of senior armed forces officers, 55% of top civil servants, 43% of newspaper columnists and 36% of the Cabinet were educated at independent schools and Oxbridge. BBC

7. Darts is being given a middle-class makeover. The game, once synonymous with the working-class, is now drawing a wealthier crowd who are paying £600 for tickets. Prince Harry and Zara Phillips have both been to world darts championships. Stephen Fry has dipped his toe in darts commentary. The Sunday Times

8. Salaries offered in job advertisements have witnessed their first annual rise since the recession. A study found that the average annual wage offered in the UK was £33,873 in July, up 0.9% on the same period a year ago. The rise bucked this month’s official jobs data which showed an unexpected 0.2% drop in earnings growth in the three months to July. Daily Telegraph

9. House prices in Britain will be more than 25% higher in five years, with London finally being overtaken by other parts of the country. Property firm Savills predicts that house prices will jump by 9.5% this year across the UK, up from its original estimate of 6.5%, with the property market having “exceeded all expectations”. The Times

10. A slice of cake from Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s wedding in 1981 has sold at auction for $1,375 (£820). The cake, in its original white and silver presentation box, was sold to a mystery online bidder in Los Angeles. Fans of royal food have previously purchased cakes dating back to Queen Victoria’s wedding in 1840. The Times
