And what's more, this section of the electorate is now anyone's to play for, Caroline Macfarland, director of think tank Common Vision, says. Breaking down the boundaries to politicians Image copyright Reuters These are people who aren't concerned with immigration, but are worried about the environment, says Dr Sloam. The environment wasn't even an issue in this election. Here, young people can have more influence in the debate. Dr Avril Keating, director for the Centre for Global Youth at the UCL-Institute of Education agrees: Younger people tend to be more supportive of multiculturalism and inclusion. Common Vision has put together a Millennial Manifesto for generation Y that's those now aged between 18 and 35 that it argues has a more everyday political agenda than generations before. Looking at the environment it suggests a policy which isn't just about how much energy we use, but how we think about these resources too. One way of doing this would be through so-called bottom-up supply models where citizens could be involved in renewable energy generation on a local level. A housing model for 'generation rent'
Media playback is unsupported on your device Media captionShould 'Generation Rent' try co-living? Dr Keating argues that ultimately young people want the same things as everyone else; good wages and the prospect of owning a house. Consecutive governments have promised to build 'X' amount of homes, with the debate focused on supply and demand or buy or rent. But young people tend to be less binary according to Ms Macfarland. The Millennial manifesto points to examples of self-build, community housing and co-living models where people share spaces and facilities which are already happening in the UK and abroad. In Germany where almost half of Germany's first-time voters back Chancellor Angela Merkel housing problems are similar to those in the UK. But their government has invested in greater rental regulation, where rents are only increased if improvements are made, tenants have long term agreements and are able to save money in a different way to paying a mortgage. Germany looks 10-20 years in the future with its policy, Dr Sloam says, but he admits these types of policy are costly. It is this long term thinking that could be the real win for policy makers though, according to Ms Macfarland Look beyond the five-year term policy makers would instead be appealing to voters with five decades ahead of them, she said. A new rule-book for a new way of work Image copyright Reuters Surveillance, misuse of data, privacy and hacking are all issues that Dr Huw Davies of the Oxford Internet Institute believes young voters of the future will be concerned about. Young people are already participating in the digital economy off their own backs, he says. They are recognising their future could be in a gig economy with a collection of jobs as opposed to one role. With a new computer science curriculum already in the education system, pupils are learning about encryption and data provenance. It's only a matter of time Dr Davies argues, before people become aware of how ignorant governments have previously been on these issues. Politicians won't get away with saying backdoor encryption then, Dr Davies says.

(CNN)When South Korea's new president Moon Jae-in took up residency in the Blue House last month, his choice of pets raised some eyebrows. The mere image and civil act of Korea's new president showing compassion for abandoned and abused rescue animals will be both positive and powerful. South Korea is a modern country, but its progress when it comes to animal welfare lags behind its rapid economic development.

Credentials of officials including MPs, diplomats and senior police officers reportedly sold on Russian websites after 2012 attack on LinkedIn
Passwords belonging to British politicians, diplomats and senior police officers have been traded by Russian hackers, it has been reported. Security credentials said to have belonged to tens of thousands of government officials, including 1,000 British MPs and parliamentary staff, 7,000 police employees and more than 1,000 Foreign Office staff, were in the troves sold or swapped on Russian-speaking hacking sites. The majority of the passwords are said to have been compromised in a 2012 hacking raid on the business social network LinkedIn, in which millions of users details were stolen. The National Crime and Security Centre (NCSC) confirmed that its cyber security advice has been highlighted to departments in light of the discovery by the Times. In the wake of the LinkedIn attack users were advised to change their passwords on the site and any other accounts that used the same credentials. The warning was repeated in 2016 when it emerged the compromised passwords were being sold by criminal gangs. A government spokesman said it was a historical incident. When it took place, LinkedIn gave advice that people should change their passwords, he said. Anybody who is no longer using the password will not have had their account breached.
