George Osborne unveils tough benefits curbs in Âbn spending cuts package

A by Mabry

Borrowers often use payday loans out of desperation, a new report finds. Valery Gergiev led a two-and-a-half-hour performance at the opening of Mariinsky II in St. Petersburg, Russia.    On the 60th anniversary

of the

publication in Nature of three papers by James Watson and Francis Crick, and teams led by Rosalind Franklin and my late father Maurice Wilkins, it's easy to forget that in April 1953 just about no one in the world had heard of DNA.
Even among the few scientists who had, nearly all dismissed it as unimportant. Sixty years on, DNA is one of the few aspects of science that can genuinely be called a "household name". Indeed deoxyribonucleic acid really is "in the DNA" of our 21st-century culture.Just after Watson and Crick proposed their model in 1953, my father wrote to them, saying: "I think it's

a very exciting notion and who the

hell got it isn't what matters … there is no good grousing." I don't think anyone connected with that letter would have believed quite how much "grousing" about "winners" and "losers" the next 60 years would bring!DNA, in the most fundamental way, belongs to all of us, yet none of us.
Our bodies are just vehicles for these primordial molecules, formed in slime pits millions of years ago,

to reach the future by combining with others.
Perhaps it's time to start thinking of the DNA effort in a similar way – the twin strands of Cambridge's conceptual model combining with King's experimental rigour to bring a new idea to life.
Indeed, a fully accurate and verified structure for DNA required vital contributions from both sides.The
four very

different figures in the so-called "race for DNA" shared a common concern about the effect of science, including their science, on mankind.
None could have hoped or expected that their work would have the impact it already has. Let's hope the end result of this "very exciting notion", 60 years young, is that we'll all be the winners.George WilkinsLondonGeneticsHuman

Producer and director Michael Apted pays tribute to the former Granada TV chairman who died last weekWhen I joined Granada in 1963, I was part of a small group straight out of university (which included Mike Newell) chosen by Sir Denis Forman, in his role as head of programmes, to train at the company. It was the place to be – ahead of the

field in current affairs, drama, light entertainment and comedy. I doubt any of us has any idea

of how lucky we were to be asked to join.Granada was a small company,

with neither the space nor resources for serious training, so ours was on-the-job. I did news, some small documentaries, football matches, church services, World In Action, then on to Coronation Street and eventually into drama, forex growth bot some to the best writers of their generation: Jack Rosenthal, Arthur Hopcraft and Colin Welland.
In those early years, I had a go at everything and quickly figured out what I could and couldn't handle.
Had I trained anywhere else, I would probably have been allocated to some department and lost forever.The very first of my many diverse jobs was as a researcher on a Word In Action special called Seven Up! It was a one-off film looking at the state of the British class system in the early 60s, as told through the eyes of a diverse group of seven-year-old children. It was very successful, both funny and chilling.About five years after it was shown, I have this vivid memory of Denis seeking me out in the Granada canteen one lunch time, sitting himself down

and asking whether I'd ever thought of going back and seeing how the children were doing.
Well, I hadn't. He suggested I went back and did a follow-up.
The rest is history – it was to become the longest running documentary series ever. It was typical of his management style: personal, low-key and far-reaching.As
it was a small company, we were on nodding terms with the remarkable men who ran it under Denis. They were men with a strong social and political conscience. My biggest influences were Tim Hewat, Derek Granger, David Plowright, Michael Parkinson, Julian Amyes and Peter Eckersley.
They were in the business of making

successful TV programmes, yet they had a vision to make the country a better place, to educate as well as entertain.
They opened up the realities of politics to a large audience by broadcasting live the Rochdale byelection in 1958. It was just one of many bold and radical changes that began under Denis's watch.Denis
was a highly educated, civilised man with a range of interests, who you felt secretly wanted to be at home listening to his beloved Mozart. But he involved himself in all aspects of Granada's output, including some of the more hair-raising aspects of World in Action, which

was always on the cutting edge and never frightened to speak its mind.
Denis never flinched in defending Granada's right of free speech, even though it sometimes meant visits to the law courts to defend those rights.
Those were lively times and I doubt we'll see their like again as the business has become fragmented and its values compromised.Denis eventually moved away from the day-to-day running of the business, but his influence remained immense with the great drama series, most famously Brideshead Revisited and The Jewel in the Crown.I,
too, left Granada, first for London and then America, but I had my umbilical cord to Forman's legacy with the ...Up
series. I suppose that canteen lunch with Denis more than 40 years ago changed the thrust of my working life as much as anything ever has, and I have him to thank for that.Michael Apted began his TV career as a Granada TV trainee. His credits as a director and producer include the 7 Up documentary series and movies Gorky Park, Enigma and The World Is Not Enough.

There's an unexpected bonus tucked within the Pinewood Lake community, just a few blocks from bustling Route 1 north of Fort Belvoir. When he got his first-ever C on a history essay in high school, Noam Angrist stayed after school every day for the rest

of the year, honing his writing with a teacher. When an unexpected injury cut short his rowing career, he started coaching. When a middle-school student he was tutoring refused to learn the standard material, Angrist introduced him to The Economist.Passionate about education, economics, crew and making the world a better place, Angrist’s drive and work ethic are matched by his creativity and unconventional methods. The MIT senior believes anyone can learn to do anything.�"I
don’t believe in natural talent,” he says — inspirational words, coming from a double major in math and economics who has contributed to several published research papers, a stellar rower turned coach, and the co-founder of a successful youth mentorship program.
Eight years ago, Angrist says, he was a solid student but had �"no ambition athletically.” Then, when he was in eighth grade, his family moved to Israel for a year when his

father — Joshua Angrist, the Ford Professor of Economics at MIT — took a fellowship at Hebrew University.
�"Everything was different,” Angrist remembers. �"The school doesn’t emphasize academics; they’re huge on athletics.”When he walked into gym class on the first day, Angrist was instructed to show how many pull-ups he could do. �"I couldn’t do a single one,” Angrist says. �"You can’t even do one pull-up, you sausage!” his gym teacher growled.
�"I walked out mortified,” Angrist remembers.From that moment on, Angrist had a goal: He stayed

up late researching nutrition and athletics, making schedules of when he would eat, when he would exercise. He devoured fat-free cottage cheese, and he jumped rope every morning.
�"That’s just the way I am, when I have

a focus,” Angrist says.Angrist became a star performer in his gym class — and the student who could do the most pull-ups.When he returned to the United States for high school, Angrist took up crew, a sport that

he says �"gives you a chance to be the person you want to be.”�"It
rewards hard work,” he says. �"And I worked really freakin’ hard.”
Despite being the shortest team member in a sport where height can make micro niche finder difference, Angrist says, he emerged as one

of the best rowers and a team captain. When a blood clot forced the removal of one of his ribs — ending his rowing career — Angrist switched to coaching the Brookline High School novice boys’ team. He was decades younger than his fellow coaches, but still led his boats to gold medals in the state championships.To Angrist, coaching crew was a chance to make a measurable difference. �"As a coach, I’m the independent variable, and the success of the students is the dependent variable,” he

says. �"I wouldn’t do anything if I didn’t feel like it had a direct and tangible impact.”
Though Angrist is a tough coach, he says, his rowers are grateful.
They may never see him smile, but he says, �"Kids know when you invest your heart and soul in something.” Crew has helped him succeed as well: Despite the intense time commitment, Angrist says, it helped him focus and excel in his studies.
Now, he helps others do the same.
At the end of their sophomore year at the Institute, Angrist and fellow MIT senior Ron Rosenberg founded Amphibious Achievement, an athletic and academic mentorship program for low-income high school students in Boston. Amphibious Achievement has been featured in local and national publications, and students in the program have shown marked progress in school and on the water. Angrist knows because he’s been keeping careful track.As a student of economics and math, Angrist values data-based evidence and advocates its use in the creation of policies and programs.
In Amphibious Achievement as well as in TechLit — a project he recently started to evaluate the use of Kindle e-readers in schools — Angrist makes sure to keep a careful record of students’ progress.�"We need

to revolutionize the way we run and create programs, because right now it’s not based on evidence,” Angrist says. �"It’s shocking how much policy is made on the basis of politics and opinions.”Angrist
is working to collect that evidence and to bridge the gap between science and policy.
He has spent the last three years working with MIT Professor of Economics Jon Gruber to research the impact of the 2010 Affordable Care Act. In summer 2011, Angrist worked in Washington at the Council of Economic Advisors, a group that

advises the president on economic policy. His work included the design of �"randomized trials

to analyze the effectiveness of educational software” — something he is currently putting into practice with TechLit.
This past summer, Angrist returned to Washington to work for the World Bank’s education sector.
�"I am super-passionate about the power of economics to do good,” Angrist says.Though he knows change ultimately must come from high-level policy decisions, Angrist has spent

a lot of time on the ground, working personally with the students he is trying to help. In that time, he has seen kids who were slack-jawed in the face of standardized test problems become engaged and excited in discussions of articles from The Economist and history books. He insists that it is important for learning to be fun. �"Even though I am a data-driven guy with a heavy math background, what really inspires me — and the reason I think my programs are effective — are the first-hand connections and experiences I’ve had,” Angrist says.
�"Kids won’t care how much you know until they know how much you
