Google: An A to Z of search results

Technology
Google now handles more than three billion searches a day. The vast majority are for complete words or phrases. But premature pushes of the enter key mean many end up being for single letters too.Most of us simply go back and try again.But some of those unique-character searches throw up intriguing results and serve as a snapshot of popular culture.So, we went for a run round the alphabet to see who or what the search giant associates with each letter.The results were sourced from queries made via an anonymous Google UK Search, ignoring ads, recent news stories and dictionary/wiki-based results.They were carried out via a browser cleaned of cookies and other tracking data.

Prostate cancer immune system drug results could be 'spectacular'

Health
Drugs that boost the immune system have saved the lives of some men with terminal prostate cancer, say doctors in the UK.The team at the Institute of Cancer Research and the Royal Marsden Hospital in London said the results were "spectacular" and a "big deal".However, the therapy will not work for most patients. Cancer Research UK said the next step was to predict who would respond.Immunotherapy is transforming the treatment of cancer and is now part of routine practice for some skin and lung cancers.

The vote was tainted by widespread reports of ballot-box stuffing and forced voting, but the complaints will likely do little to undermine Putin. His popularity remains high despite his suppression of dissent and reproach from the West over Russia's increasingly aggressive stance in world affairs and alleged interference in the 2016 U.S. election. Putin's main challenge in the election was to obtain a huge margin of victory in order to claim an indisputable mandate.
