Sky TV to go satellite dish-free in 2018

Sky is to offer a complete subscription television package without a satellite dish for the first time.

From 2018, people who cannot have a dish installed will be able to receive Sky over the internet instead.

The company said the move would help it reach a further six million customers across Europe.

One analyst said the development was a "logical step", but customers would need to live in an area with fast broadband speeds to benefit.

Overseas teacher recruitment drive revealed

The government is planning an international recruitment drive for specialist maths and physics teachers for the first time since the 1970s.

It is tendering for a £300,000 contract to recruit teachers from the Czech Republic, Germany, Poland and the US.

It comes as the Migration Advisory Committee recommended widening the number of subjects for which schools could recruit from non-EU countries.

Hm, I had an overseas maths teacher. Damn difficult to understand what he was saying, never mind what he was talking about.
