11 science backed ways for men to appear more attractive

    Be honest, straight men: You all want to know what women want. Luckily, a bunch of scientists have wondered the same thing. These types of studies are often small, and frequently rely on self-reported feelings in a lab, which may be different from how women truly react in real life. And the participants are often Western college students, who are not an especially a diverse group. So take the results with a grain of salt. But hey, whatever helps, right? Here are 11 science-supported traits that women find irresistible. 1) Good looks can be a factor, but they're not as important as you may think.

Woman who wanted to join Isis and marry Jihadi John is jailed for four and a half years

    A woman who said she wanted to marry the terrorist known as “Jihadi John” has been jailed for four and a half years for spreading Isis propaganda.

David Cameron faces anger for failing to include Sovereignty Bill in Queen’s Speech

    David Cameron on Wednesday abandoned plans to make Parliament supreme over European courts as ministers admitted the proposals were “unworkable” with Britain in the EU. In a row that overshadowed the Queen’s Speech, the Prime Minister was accused by Iain Duncan Smith, a former Cabinet minister, of "jettisoning" domestic priorities because of his "helter skelter” attempt to win the upcoming EU referendum. Downing Street on Wednesday night insisted it will still come forward with a Sovereignty Bill if Britain votes to stay in the EU on June 23. However, Eurosceptics said the pledge was derisory and said that the only way Britain can ever ensure its sovereignty is by leaving the EU. The failure to include a Sovereignty Bill came in a Queen’s Speech that Mr Cameron used to rea...
