The unexpected benefit that retirement has on your sleep quality

    You sleep better after you've retired, says new study We'd always assumed that sleep quality diminished as you got older, but it looks like that might not be the case after all... In fact, a new study has revealed that people sleep better and for longer after they reach retirement age. It seems as if giving up work leads to a reduction in sleep difficulties, researchers from the University of Turku in Finland have said. The team concluded this after analysing data from over 5,000 Finnish pensioners, who retired between the years 2000 and 2011. The volunteers answered a questionnaire about their sleep quality both before and after retirement, with surveys taking place every four years. And it seems that sleep quality improves after we give up work, and continues t...

David Davis scrambles to salvage EU relations after damaging trust

    David Davis on the BBC’s Andrew Marr show at the weekend when he made the comments about the UK’s agreement with the EU which will allow Brexit talks to progress to the next stage.

EU leaders have warned the British government against backtracking on promises made in Brussels after Davis suggested a Brexit breakthrough reached last week had no legal status. Senior EU figures voiced irritation on Tuesday with Davis’s claim over the weekend that the UK’s concessions in an agreement struck last week to move talks on were merely a statement of intent without legal backing.

Never make tea at work

    Office teabags can carry as many as 17 times more germs than a toilet seat, scientists have discovered. A study carried out by the Initial Washroom Hygiene came across these staggering results by analysing the bacterial readings of kitchen utensils and appliances. The average bacterial reading of an office teabag was 3,785, in comparison to only 220 for a toilet seat. Other pieces of kitchen equipment also stacked up highly in their findings, with the bacterial readings averaging at 2,483 on kettle handles, 1,746 on the rim of a used mug and 1,592 on a fridge door handle. Many of us wouldn’t think to wash our hands after simply opening the fridge door or before making a brew… but perhaps we should. A poll of 1,000 workers revealed that 80 per cent of people worki...
