5 expert tips for healthy, beautiful nails at home

    Tom Bachik calls himself the “MAN”icurist. The L’Oréal Paris global nail designer has been doing Jennifer Lopez’s nails for seven years, and Victoria Beckham, LeAnn Rimes and Eva Longoria are also clients. We sat down with him to chat fall nail trends (for colour, it’s deep, rich, royal tones like plums and blues; for art, it’s still all about the negative space mani), celebrities with the nicest nails (Heidi Klum!) and his top tips and easy hacks for achieving healthy, beautiful nails at home. 1. Condition your nails in the shower “Take a washcloth with a little bit of hair conditioner and just rub your cuticles — this will help exfoliate the dead skin cells so that your cuticles stay clean, tight and pushed back.” 2. Cleanse with rubbing alcohol before polishing “The pro...

Milwaukee riots: Violent protests break out after police officer shoots man dead

    At least two efforts to push protesters back from the main intersection in the north of the city where the majority of the unrest occurred. The violence came after an unnamed 23-year-old man was shot dead while trying to flee from police at a traffic stop. Police said the man – who had a criminal record – had a stolen handgun but it was not clear whether he was brandishing it when he was shot. Neither his race nor that of the officer who fired the fatal shot have been identified. Mr Barrett told a news conference that the shooting was being investigated and the officer was wearing a body camera. The unnamed 24-year-old officer has been put on administrative duty. He has been at the Milwaukee police department for six years. Milwaukee has become the latest US city to be hit...

Americans shun Trump and campaign to install Britain’s QUEEN as head of state

    Tens of thousands have shared an online letter calling for Britain – which lost America in the Revolutionary War of 1765 – to step in and save the nation if Trump and the Republicans win the election on November 8. Many historians have argued that the former British Colony was never formally rescinded at the end of the war in 1783 and that George Washington and Benjamin Franklin merely signed a document removing the United States as a liability and obligation of King George. Now they want to act on that anomaly and, in a play on Donald Trump’s repeated incantation to 'Make America Great Again', a growing number of US citizens are making a call to 'Make America Great Britain Again'.

Government agency tasked with protecting vulnerable workers has had half its funding cut, says Labour

    The government agency responsible for protecting workers from being exploited by their employers has had more than half its funding cut since the Conservatives came to power, according to a new study. Now Labour is demanding that Theresa May put her call for responsible capitalism into practice by restoring the Employment Agency Standards Inspectorate (EAS) to its former size. According to the government’s website the EAS works with agencies, employers and workers to make sure that employment rights are complied with, particularly for vulnerable workers. But according to the Labour Party, its budget has been cut by 53 per cent in six years, bringing it down to £500,000 a year, and it now has the equivalent of nine full time staff, a cut of 70 per cent over the same per...
