Generation Sensible: The 18-year-olds of today

Generation Sensible: The 18-year-olds of today | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it
Dubbed Generation Sensible, the 18-year-olds of today are much more likely to be found in the university library than the local pub, research suggests.

The Office for National Statistics paper compares their habits with those of 18-year-olds around the year 2000.

It might be an oversimplification to call today's older teenagers "boffins" and those at that age around the millennium "boozers", the ONS suggests.

But cigarettes and alcohol simply do not play as big a part in their lives.

How counterfeit cigarettes containing pesticides and arsenic make it to our streets

How counterfeit cigarettes containing pesticides and arsenic make it to our streets | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it

Michael (not his real name), a former police officer, is one of an anti-illicit trade team at one of the world’s leading tobaccocompanies – the so-called “big four” that make up the lion’s share of the global smoking industry. He’s long departed his former crime-fighting career but is now on a juicy beat: running a cat-and-mouse campaign with the growing numbers of cigarette smugglers to the UK and EU. “Cigarette smuggling is increasingly lucrative,” says Michael. “There’s a lot to gain.”

Majestic: making headway despite headwinds | Fidelity | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it
Majestic Wine, the UK’s largest specialist retailer of wine, reported an annual sales increase of 2.3% today, driven by positive underlying sales growth of 11.3% at its Naked Wines division. However it warned that the UK market remained “tough” and could get worse.

With struggling retailers firmly in the focus of investors, shareholders welcomed the news that Majestic’s profit before tax had climbed out of the red to £8.3m compared to a loss of £1.5m last year. But the profitability of the company’s retail arm, which makes up about half of its revenue, was broadly flat.
