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


1. Out of 162 nations 151 are currently involved in some form of conflict. Although the UK has managed to stay relatively free from internal conflict, the country only ranks 47th in this year's Global Peace Index. Iceland came top as the most peaceful nation for the third year in a row. The five least peaceful countries were, in order: Somalia, Iraq, South Sudan, Afghanistan and, in last place, Syria. Daily Express

2. The Premier League began on Saturday following a record summer of transfer spending in England's top league. The 20 top-flight clubs have invested an estimated £647m - £17m more than in the whole of last summer - with experts believing the figure could reach £1bn. Sky Sports News

3. British consumers spend an average of £142 shopping online while drunk. Lobster pots and diving equipment among the bizarre items people have ordered during their merry sprees. Most drunken spending sessions (53%) take place on Amazon, according to a survey by a comparison website. Daily Telegraph

4. Parents typically face spending £180 on sending their children back to school, figures show. A small number – nine per cent – will fork out as much as £900 on uniforms, books, excursions and stationery, the government-backed Money Advice Service found. About 20 per cent of parents said they will need to dip into savings, 16 per cent expect to use a credit card and eight per cent will rely on an overdraft. Metro

5. Pubs are now closing at a rate of 31 per week, according to the real ale group Camra. Campaigners are calling for urgent legislation to make it harder for pubs to be demolished or transformed into retail outlets. With 3% of pubs in the suburbs closing in the past six months, there are now 54,490 boozers left in Britain. The Observer

6. A huge asteroid has a one-in-300 chance of wiping out life on Earth – but not until 2800. Researchers at the University of Tennessee are studying Asteroid 1950 DA, which could strike earth on 16 March, 2880. It has a diameter of one kilometre and is travelling at nine miles a second relative to the Earth. It would hit at 38,000 miles per hour. The Times

7. The UK is the self-employment capital of western Europe, says the IPPR think-tank. Policymakers are concerned that the trend is a sign of labour market weakness, raising fears over the strength of the economic recovery. Around two-fifths of all new jobs since 2010 have been among the self-employed, a trend that has helped shape Labour's cost-of-living agenda. The Times

8. New research from the American Chemical Society shows wine kept in a cupboard at home ages four times as quickly as that stored in a professional cellar. After two years, those stored in domestic conditions had consistently aged more quickly and had fewer antioxidants, less red pigmentation and weaker flavour than the cellar versions. The Times

9. Half of all people eligible for a state pension are still working, a study suggests. One in three pensioners is fully retired while half are working at least part time to make ends meet, it adds. One in four of those toiling in their 60s, 70s and 80s is running their own business. Evening Standard

10. German vehicle-maker Daimler has an innovative approach to holiday email, which many people about to return from holiday may well wish their company would copy. Emails sent to employees while they are on holiday are automatically deleted. Email these people and you will get a message like this: I am on vacation. I cannot read your email. Your email is being deleted. Please contact Hans or Monika if it's really important, or resend the email after I'm back in the office. Danke Schoen. BBC
