Sleeping beauty: the overnight miracle workers your need in your nighttime routine

    According to the latest figures from the Sleep Council, 74% of British people sleep for less than seven hours a night and the lack of good-quality rest takes its toll on your skin. Most of us don’t realise that the hours we spend asleep are actually among our most productive: when it comes to your skin care routine, sleep is a crucial component for the skin’s recovery from the assaults of the day. Just a few nights of missed sleep can lead to dull skin and fine lines, and chronic sleep deprivation leads to dark circles and early ageing. Our ‘always on’ lifestyles means it’s unlikely we’ll be getting more sleep any time soon, so why not enlist some help to ensure you get your best beauty sleep with these night-time wonders… The Overnight Mask Noella Gabriel, Elemi...

How safe is Facebook data: Users concern

    The claims that Cambridge Analytica used data harvested from millions of Facebook profiles to target voters in the US general election in 2016 raises tough questions for both companies. In what appeared to be a damage limitation exercise, the social network preempted the stories that appeared in the Observer and the New York Times over the weekend by banning the political strategy company from its platform while it investigated the claims. But this goes much deeper than that. Facebook’s 2.2bn active users might well wonder, how safe is their personal data? And is Facebook doing enough to secure it? And why did Facebook only react on Friday, when it must have known there was a potential problem many months, if not years, ago. In August 2016, it sent a legal letter ...

How To Teach Your Sons And Daughters About Feminism

    How do we teach our kids about feminism and gender equality from an early age? Parents might have different ways to approach the topic with their kids, but the simple act of having a conversation is an important one. Robert Webb previously spoke out about how he chats to his six-year-old daughter about the patriarchy, explaining that he refers to it as “the trick” because his daughter, Esme, couldn’t pronounce it. Esme had asked if she could wear a Spiderman costume on a non-uniform day. Webb explained during an interview with Channel 4: “She asked: ‘OK, if I go as Spiderman and not as a princess, will I get laughed at?’ My wife said, ’People might laugh and what will you say?” And Esme said, ‘Shall I tell them they’re laughing because of the trick that makes men ...

Facebook post of man apologising for mistaking wife’s emotions for weakness goes viral

    A Facebook post that a man wrote in which he apologised to his wife for mistaking her emotions for weakness has gone viral. Sean and Ashley Price are a married couple with two young children currently living in Baltimore, Maryland. A couple of days ago, Sean decided to write a lengthy Facebook post about an epiphany that he had about his wife’s strength of character. While in the past Sean had often pointedly mistaken Ashley’s high emotional intensity for weakness, he now realised, belatedly, that she is far stronger than he had previously thought. Sean chose to publicly apologise on social media for his error of judgement. So many times I called her weak for her intense emotional reactions towards different things, he wrote. Told her to grow up, be a woman, sto...

Putin not fooling anyone with absurd nerve agent attack denials: Boris Johnson

    The Foreign Secretary has warned the Russian government that it is not fooling anyone with its increasingly absurd denials of culpability for use of a nerve agent on British soil. Arriving at a meeting with EU foreign affairs ministers in Brussels on Monday morning Boris Johnson said Vladimir Putin’s regime was trying to conceal the needle of truth in a haystack of lies and obfuscation. Mr Johnson will brief the 27 other EU foreign ministers on the 4 March incident, in a meeting which EU foreign affairs chief Federica Mogherini said would first and foremost focus on the Salisbury attack among other issues. The ministers are expected to issue a joint statement on the incident later this morning after discussions. Officials from the Organisation for the Prohibition ...
