Are You Sure You’re Doing Squats Correctly

    Are You Sure You're Doing Squats Correctly? Love them or loathe them, squats are one of the most effective exercises you can do. It's very important, however, that you do them just right to maximize effectiveness and prevent injury. Squats are also highly versatile: you can do them anywhere even while brushing your teeth. Multitask by adding bicep curls and other moves to make them harder. Here's a primer on how exactly to do the perfect squat. Stand with your head facing forward and your chest held up and out. Place your feet shoulder-width apart or slightly wider. Extend your hands straight out in front of you to help keep your balance. You can also bend the elbows or clasp the fingers. Sit back and down like you're sitting into an imaginary chair. Keep your...

KFC restaurants run out of chicken across the UK

    Fried chicken fans in the UK have been left confused after several KFC restaurants were forced to close due to running out of chicken. Restaurants are reported to be closed in Manchester, Plymouth, Newcastle, Berkshire, Suffolk and Surrey. The Manchester Evening News reports restaurants are placing the blame on delivery problems, with one location putting up a sign that said "hiccups" in the delivery process had forced the closure. Sorry we're closed. We deliver our chicken fresh into our restaurants but we've had a few hiccups with the delivery today, the sign read. We wouldn't want to open without offering our full menu, but we'll be back at the fryers as soon as we can. Apologies for the inconvenience. Customers weren't pleased, with many asking how a restaur...

Merkel curious about Brexit plans

    Angela Merkel told Theresa May on Friday that she was curious about, but not frustrated with the British government’s slow progress in outlining its vision of the future relationship with the European Union. Speaking in conciliatory terms as Britain’s prime minister prepares to present her ideas on security cooperation in Munich on Saturday, the German chancellor said that the two sides were seeking common ground. I want to say that I am not frustrated. I am curious how Great Britain imagines our relationship to be, said Merkel at a joint press conference with May in Berlin, a nod to rumours that she had made fun of the British PM’s circular negotiation tactics at a Davos reception last month. Of course we have our vested interests for example, as regards economic ...

Corbyn denies he was paid to spy

    A former Czech spy has reportedly claimed that Jeremy Corbyn was a paid informant in the 1980's an allegation that the Labour Party leader has emphatically denied. Ján Sarkocy told Czech news outlet CT24 that he had met with the Labour leader before the fall of the Soviet Union, and that Corbyn was paid for information he provided. In a statement provided to Business Insider, a spokesperson for Corbyn denied the claim. The former Czechoslovak agent Jan Sarkocy's account of his meeting with Jeremy was false 30 years ago, is false now and has no credibility whatsoever. His story has more plot holes in it than a bad James Bond movie, they said. Earlier this week, The Sun reported that Corbyn had apparently unwittingly met multiple times with a Communist spy in the 198...

Do whatever it takes to protect the security of Europe post Brexit

    In a speech in Munich, the Prime Minister will warn that rigid institutional restrictions and deep-seated ideology must not be allowed to jeopardise the safety of citizens. She will set out plans for a new treaty between the UK and the European Union to enshrine security cooperation and warn a reluctance to agree a new type of partnership would have damaging consequences. Mrs May will say: The challenge for all of us today is finding the way to work together, through a deep and special partnership between the UK and the EU, to retain the co-operation that we have built and go further in meeting the evolving threats we face together. This cannot be a time when any of us allow competition between partners, rigid institutional restrictions or deep-seated ideology to i...
