Skin care for winter

    Time flies! And winter is here; wasn't it just the other day I was writing on winter skin issues? Here I go again… During this season both skin and hair need a fair bit of attention.

Lather in a circular motion to remove excess oil and dirt. The natural oil in the skin attracts dust from the surroundings and if left to settle on the surface of the skin, will create irritation and blockage leading to ...

Tories branded arrogant for trying to ban House of Lords opposing Government

    The Tories were accused of breathtaking arrogance by trying to ram through laws to quash opposition in the House of Lords. A review by Tory peer Lord Strathclyde could see the Upper House banned from overturning some Government legislation.

To ensure the Bill gets through ministers have an added an amendment saying it is now a financial issue. Peers are not allowed to vote down financial bills such as a the Budget.

    Engineers will begin restoring power to 42,000 properties in the North West after unforeseen flood damage at one of the city's main substations caused another widespread outage on Monday afternoon.

Austrian boy finds 100,000 Euro in River

    Police in Austria are investigating how bank notes worth tens of thousands of euros ended up in the River Dan-ube. The notes were found floating down the river in Vienna on Saturday, leading one passer-by to jump in and sal-vage the money.

A statement from the police force said: "The police were contacted by a family member approximately three weeks before the incident on Saturday. "The conversation related entirely to health relate...
