The Daily Telegraph: Cambridge applicants fail to make the grades

The statistics reflect research warnings that the majority of A-level grades predicted by teachers are incorrect. A 2016 report by Dr Gill Wyness of the UCL Institute of Education found that one in six A-level grade predictions was accurate, with three quarters of actual grades turning out lower than estimated and only one in 10 higher. Data from Oxford and Cambridge showed that both universities have marginally increased numbers of black and ethnic minority students amid increasing pressure to broaden access.

The Globe and Mail (Canada): Trump's trade wars spin out of control; His methods will do more harm than good if - and he seems to want this - it leads to a reduction in global Commerce

"At the moment, we have not witnessed a wholesale collapse of the modern trading system. This is partially for the fact that policymakers seem to have learned some of the lessons of interwar history by not responding in a general fashion to unilateral moves toward protectionism," economists David Jacks of Simon Fraser University and Dennis Novy of the University of Warwick wrote in a new National Bureau of Economic Research paper.
