IMRAN Khan is set to become the Prime Minister of Pakistan after a blood-soaked election that has left hundreds of people dead. The cricket hero, 65, was in the lead before even half the votes were counted, prompting his ex-wife to congratulate him on the victory. The new prime minister - dubbed cricket's greatest playboy in the 1980s and 1990s - is set to face a crumbling economy and violence after an ISIS fanatic blew himself up outside a polling station in Quetta yesterday as dozens cast their vote. Earlier this month another ISIS suicide bomber struck a political rally, killing 149 people including PM candidate Siraj Raisani. But despite the violence, Khan supporters celebrated outside party offices countrywide throughout election night yesterday, and his ex-wife Jemima described how he had beaten the odds.

WITH its glittering academic record and nightlife, Bristol University has a well-deserved reputation for being one of Britain’s top places to study. But a long shadow now lies over the city after ten suicides and sudden deaths among its 23,500 students in just 18 months — including three in three weeks this term alone. There are many competing theories about the spate of deaths, including inadequate pastoral care, low-grade university accommodation and a student body increasingly remote from older, wiser academic staff. Social media has also been blamed for pressuring youngsters to present a perfect image of their lives so friends fail to notice sadness creeping in. And there is also concern that the university is overselling a gilded version of student life to woo teenagers — some of whom are not mature enough to cope — in order to land annual tuition fees of £9,250.

Abstract The insertion of history into the medical school curriculum has been discussed over a long period of time. But the role of history in the public health curriculum has not been the subject of much discussion, despite the changes in UK public health training and the advent of multidisciplinary public health. This article reviews the history of inserting history into the curriculum in a leading public health postgraduate institution. It discusses the strategies used to secure acceptance for history; the positioning of history within the curriculum both as a core and a special subject; and the different curriculum content and learning approaches which have been used over time. It reviews recent developments in distance learning and the launch of a history Massive Open On line Course. It concludes that no one approach can be recommended for inserting history and that flexibility, persistence, alliances and the willingness to adapt to local circumstances are important. Students … [Read more...] about Infiltrating history into the public health curriculum
