Picture: Unlocked Graduates Archant A Suffolk programme to train prison officers has attracted more than double the number of women than men - and it is being attributed to the success of a popular American box set. Unlocked Graduates - undergoing a training sessionContrary to some stereotypes of prison officers as brawny, stony-faced men, it might be surprising to hear that this year, 69% of applicants to a graduate training programme at University of Suffolk for prison officers were women.In its second year of applications, the ‘Unlocked Graduates’ programme, which trains up graduates to join the prison service, is on track to double in size, with more than 100 officers being placed in prisons in London and the South East this month.

Jalopnik Reviews All of our test drives in one convenient place. There is no denying the 2018 Tesla Model 3's importance. It is intended to be Tesla’s volume-seller, the car that will hopefully make luxury electric cars more accessible to more people, especially when the long-promised $35,000 version hits the market. It is the key to Tesla’s future, the source of many of its struggles this year, and an EV—hell, a car, period—truly unlike any other. Equipped as you see here with distance driving in mind, the Model 3 Long Range further normalizes electric cars by offering a truly capable machine with a mix of power, performance, price, range and convenience no other electric cars currently match. For right now, anyway. (Full Disclosure: We asked Tesla if we could borrow a 2018 Model 3 and it obliged, loaning us a fully charged car for about a week.) What Is It? Jalopnik’s previous time with the Model 3 has only been in short bursts. We spent a few … [Read more...] about The 2018 Tesla Model 3 Long Range Is the Perfect Mix of Ordinary and Revolutionary
The Mercedes C-Class is bigger, nicer and faster than ever. But, the Mercedes C-Class used car test shows: it is not necessarily better. Quiet, fast – the current C-Class is almost an S-class! No comparison to its ancestor, the little 190, who was mocked as “baby-Benz” in his 1982 performance. The fourth edition of the C-Class, available since 2014, has long since arrived in a higher class in terms of comfort. Unfortunately, too. A whopping 74,237 euros cost the white C 250 d 4Matic T avant-garde, which completed its endurance test at How To Cars in the summer of 2017. For this course, there were two new S-Classes at the time of the 190ers. That it is also cheaper, shows us the black C 200 T BlueTec from Autohus in Bockel. With simple fabric seats, manual transmission and small 136-horsepower diesel he cost newly “only” 42,350 euros. After just over three years and 136,000 kilometers, he should still bring 15,680 euros. Fair, especially since he … [Read more...] about Mercedes C-Class used car report: Is the new C great with old age?
