AskTen - Ten amazing things you may not have known last week

10 THINGS YOU DIDN'T KNOW LAST WEEK

1. Britons are working an extra 19 days every year because we don’t take our full lunch break. The average ‘hour’ allowed for mealtime now lasts just 26 minutes and 28 seconds, a new study has found. Over the course of a year, we are working 133 hours extra for free. The Times

2. Wealth accumulated by the world’s richest 1% will exceed that of the other 99% in 2016, Oxfam revealed, ahead of the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum at Davos, Switzerland. The richest’s share of global wealth increased from 44% in 2009 to 48 in 2014, the charity said in a report, adding that it will be more than 50 by next year. The Independent

3. Almost 40 employers owing staff £177,000 have been ‘named and shamed’ for failing to pay the national minimum wage. They include a childcare centre in Wolverhampton, a tanning boutique in Glasgow and a building firm in Edinburgh. The 37 offenders face fines totaling more than £51,000. Daily Mail

4. Britain's two largest airports recorded their busiest ever year in 2014. Heathrow passenger numbers last year rose 1.4 per cent to a record 73.4 million, while a total of 38.12 million were handled at Gatwick - a 7.6 per cent increase on 2013 and also an all-time high. Financial Times

5. Shoppers who use the post rather than the internet to settle bills are paying an extra £440 a year for goods and services, a study suggests. The 8million people in Britain – including 5million pensioners – who have no online access are missing out on discounts offered by banks, energy and telecom companies. Metro

6. Milk is now cheaper than bottled water thanks to a fierce supermarket price war, a study suggests. When bought in a four-pint container, the price per litre of milk has dropped to 43p compared with 44p for packs of bottled still water. BBC

7. Seven in ten university students now gain at least a 2:1 – with soaring fees thought to have fuelled a sharp increase in the number getting firsts. Almost 80,000 students – one in five – achieved the highest classification last year, up by 10,000 on 2013. The proportion achieving at least a 2:1 has soared by 163 per cent in a decade. The Times

8. Every year 1,000 people die in the UK waiting for an organ transplant. However, only 4% of people regularly give blood, and only 31% of us have joined the Organ Donor Register Source: NHS Choices

9. Britain’s last Victorian has died. Ethel Lang, who lived to see six British monarchs and 22 prime ministers, passed away at the age of 114. She danced into her late nineties, enjoyed watching snooker and “always liked a cup of tea”. Her daughter said: “Her secret to living so long was living so well,” she said. “She never smoked and rarely had a drink. She was always out and about.” The Observer

10. Last year was officially the hottest on record, say US government scientists. After smashing temperature records that had stood for hundreds of years across virtually all of Europe, and baking regions in China, South America, and Russia – 2014 has been officially named the hottest on record, with global temperatures 1.24F (0.69C) higher than the 20th-century average.
