These heart attack symptoms could mean the difference between life and death

    These heart attack symptoms could mean the difference between life and death A heart attack occurs when the blood flow that brings oxygen to the heart muscle is severely reduced or cut off entirely. This is because of the arteries, which are slowly narrowing due to a buildup of fat, cholesterol, and plaque. A good percentage of patients don’t make it to A&E because they ignored their symptoms, Dr. David Fischman, co-director of the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory at Thomas Jefferson University, says. Chest discomfort This is a very common sign of a heart attack, even though women are more likely to experience other typical signs, Dr. Fischman says. “Women have the same incidence as men but the symptoms presentation is different.” The discomfort in the center of the ...

John Bercow in new Brexit furore over neutrality after admitting he voted Remain

    The Speaker of the House of Commons has become involved in a fresh row about political bias after he admitted voting to stay in the European Union and said immigration into Britain was a good thing. John Bercow is already facing a vote of no confidence from MPs next week after he angered the Government by vetoing the idea of an address by President Donald Trump to both Houses of Parliament during his state visit later this year. Now it has emerged Mr Bercow told a group of students he voted Remain at last year’s EU referendum, adding he hoped EU rules on parental leave, working time regulations and equality laws would continue after Brexit. His fresh comments appear to breach the convention that Speakers of the House of Commons do not allow themselves to be drawn into poli...

Royal Navy warship rescues 14 sailors stranded for two days in Atlantic Ocean

    Fourteen sailors have been rescued by the crew of a Royal Navy warship after their racing yacht was stranded for two days in the Atlantic Ocean. The 60ft Clyde Challenger yacht lost its mast in the turbulent waters as it was returning from the Azores, in the mid-Atlantic, to the UK and the crew waited 20 hours for HMS Dragon to reach them. The Type 45 destroyer was diverted 500 miles from a routine deployment to rescue the crew, travelling at 30 knots to arrive at the yacht's position - some 610 miles south west of Land's End - at around 2.30pm on Saturday. The operation concluded at around 5pm and all crew members were said to be alive and well. They were treated for minor injuries and given hot food and the chance to call their families once on board the vessel. The Chal...

Donald Trump’s state visit to the UK could be moved from London to the Midlands

    Donald Trump’s state visit to the UK could be moved from London to the Midlands, it has been reported. The change of location is apparently being considered to allow the President to address a rally and raise money for veterans through ticket sales. It is thought the reasoning behind the move is to allow Mr Trump to face a more sympathetic crowd in the Brexit heartland. It would be his biggest rally with 85,000 people coming together to celebrate the US-UK special relationship, a source close to Mr Trump said, according to the Telegraph. If he is not speaking to the Houses of Parliament, let’s go to the people. The only person who gets screwed is the Speaker of the House of Commons. The plans for the Trump rally include performances by cheerleaders from America’s National ...
