Eat these 6 foods to ease bloating and help digestion

    If you're looking to reduce bloating, are suffering from continual stomach gurgles or feeling constipated, it could be that your digestive health has gone a little bit out of whack. Although the above symptoms could be a warning sign of something bigger such as IBS, coeliac disease, or ovarian cancer, and, if experienced frequently should be reason to book in pronto with your GP, they could also be a simple plea from your gut that it needs a little bit of TLC. The good news is that there are plenty of foods to help digestion so pepping up your digestive tract can be a tasty experience. More women come to my clinic complaining about bloating than ever before, says registered nutritionist and digestive health expert Kym Lang. My clients are always surprised when I te...

UK-EU custom partnership still on the table despite fierce opposition from Tory Brexiteers

    A customs partnership with the European Union is still on the table, the business secretary has said, despite fierce opposition from some Tory Brexiteers. Thousands of British jobs depend on frictionless trade with Europe, Greg Clark stressed as he continued to push for the controversial arrangement. He also opened the door to extending a transition period on customs with the EU until a new arrangement was in place. Outspoken Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg dismissed the suggestion of job losses as Project Fear. Mr Clark was part of the Brexit "war cabinet" which this week failed to reach an agreement on whether to back the customs partnership. The arrangement would see the UK collect import duties on behalf of the EU for goods arriving via British ports and airports. ...

Britain’s oldest nuclear reactors due to cracks

    The government’s energy policy is under renewed pressure after the prolonged closure of one of Britain’s oldest nuclear reactors due to cracks in its graphite core raised questions over the future of six other plants built in the 1970s and 1980s. The temporary shutdown of reactor three at Hunterston B in Scotland is also expected to burn an estimated £120m hole in the revenues of its owner, EDF Energy. EDF said this week it was taking the reactor offline for six months, after inspections found more cracks than expected in the graphite bricks at the reactor’s core. However, while safety fears have been quashed, the potential impact on wider energy strategy has alarmed experts who warn the reactor may never restart. Peter Atherton, an analyst at the consultancy Corn...

Minimum of 1000 highly skilled migrants wrongly face deportation

    At least 1,000 highly skilled migrants seeking indefinite leave to remain (ILR) in the UK are wrongly facing deportation under a section of the Immigration Act designed in part to tackle terrorists and individuals judged to be a threat to national security, MPs and experts have said. In the latest scandal to hit the Home Office after the Windrush crisis, a range of MPs and immigration experts have criticised the use of the controversial section 322(5) of the act, with two saying the crisis-hit department is truly wicked and abusing its power. Experts say the highly skilled workers including teachers, doctors, lawyers, engineers and IT professionals are being refused ILR after being accused of lying in their applications either for making minor and legal amendments t...

Vladimir Putin sworn in as Russian president

    Vladimir Putin has been sworn in for his fourth term as president of Russia at a ceremony in the Grand Kremlin Palace in Moscow. Video footage released by Russian television showed Mr Putin's distinctive walk along the Great Kremlin Palace's long corridors, thanking supporters as they applauded him. Mr Putin has been in power in Russia since 1999, whether as prime minister or president, and is Russia's longest-serving leader since Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin. Supporters see Mr Putin as a father-of-the-nation figure who has restored national pride and expanded Moscow's global power. The Kremlin has planned a low-key inauguration ceremony that will not include a lavish Kremlin reception in an apparent effort to eschew any bad publicity. The ceremony is being watc...
