Prince Harry slams press racism, sexism and harrassment over treatment of girlfriend Meghan Markle

    Prince Harry has attacked the racial undertones of press coverage of his girlfriend Meghan Markle in an extraordinary statement in which he warns that he fears for her safety.

Some of this has been very public, his spokesman said in a statement. The smear on the front page of a national newspaper; the racial undertones of comment pieces; and the outright sexism and racism of social media trolls and web article comments.

What should take paracetamol for

    Cochrane is the international research group that adds up the evidence for treatments by combining results from high-quality studies, and it has looked at paracetamol quite thoroughly. Guidance from Nice recommends paracetamol as the first-line painkiller for low back pain. Yet Cochrane says that for acute back pain, 4g of paracetamol a day is no better than a placebo. It couldn’t find any good evidence that it worked for chronic backache. For hip and knee pain from osteoarthritis, the drug provides such a small amount of pain relief that researchers wondered if it actually provided any benefit a person would notice. If you’ve got a cold, paracetamol can help make your nose run less, but won’t help with sneezing, coughing, discomfort, tiredness or a sore throat. For migrai...

US Presidential Election 2016: Hillary Clinton v Donald Trump

    Hillary Clinton made a dramatic final plea for America to prove that “love trumps hate” just hours before the country goes to the polls today. Speaking early this morning in the battleground state of North Carolina, Mrs Clinton urged Americans to vote in one of the most bitterly contested elections in US history and preached a message of inclusivity. Dressed in red, her voice hoarse after a final blitz through three key states, she finished with a thinly veiled dig at her Republican opponent Donald Trump, saying: “We have to bridge the divides in this country. I want to be president for all of America. I want to be president for everyone.” Referring to Mr Trump’s controversial plan to build a border wall with Mexico, she said she wanted to lead “an America where we build b...
