People can be lonely even if they’re married or have a ton of friends

    Old people are more likely to be alone, but that doesn't mean they are the most lonely. Research shows loneliness is greatest among teenagers and young adults. Loneliness at any age can affect our mental and physical health. Older people are often thought of as being lonely. Maybe their partner has passed away and they live alone, and their age means they can't get around like they used to. Research has shown how loneliness is bad for our health. For example, one study looked at how being lonely can increase the levels of stress hormones in our bodies, which have been linked to heart disease, diabetes, and dementia. Another showed how lonely people have a 50% increased risk of early death. Older people are already at a higher risk of health issues, so t...

Trump jokes about Kim Jong Un’s dictatorship

    Trump has said that he was joking when he said he wanted the US people to treat him like North Koreans treat Kim Jong-un. The two world leaders this week held an historic summit in Singapore and Trump was asked on US TV today if Kim might make an appearance at the White House. He is the head of a country and I mean he is the strong head, Trump said of Kim during a surprise appearance on Fox News. Don’t let anyone think anything different. He speaks and his people sit up at attention. I want my people to do the same. Trump then said of Kim’s removal of three top generals was him firing them at least. Fired may be a nice word. Trump later told reporters at the White House that he was being sarcastic. I’m kidding. You don’t understand sarcasm, he said. Almost solv...

Theresa May anger to MPs blocked a bid to criminalise upskirting

    Theresa May has intervened after a Tory MP derailed moves to legislate on upskirting. Theresa May has moved to soothe anger at the actions of one of her party’s longest-serving MPs after he blocked a bid to criminalise upskirting. The Prime Minister, who last month signalled her support for the campaign to ban people from taking pictures up someone’s clothing without their consent, pledged the Government would back moves to get the anti-upskirting legislation through Parliament. The move was triggered when Tory grandee Sir Christopher Chope, the 71-year-old MP for Christchurch in Dorset, shouted down the Voyeurism (Offences) Bill at the second reading stage in the Commons on Friday, prompting derision from his Conservative colleagues and campaigners alike. The PM ...
