We are not going to buy another striker because we have Sergio Aguero, says Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola

Pep Guardiola insisted Sergio Aguero’s hat-trick to beat Newcastle 3-1 at the Etihad Stadium vindicated his decision to abandon plans to add another striker to his squad during the transfer window. City had been heavily linked with Manchester United-bound Alexis Sanchez but Aguero’s clinical performance against the Magpies suggested City’s champions-elect have no great need to add to their attacking riches. Aguero glanced home Kevin De Bruyne’s cross to give his side a slender half-time advantage before adding his second from the penalty spot. Jacob Murphy reduced the deficit for…

I dumped my boyfriend because he loved 'The Room', and I have no regrets

For more than six months, I dated someone whose favourite movie was The Room. He brought it up on our first date, waving the red flag right in my face. I should have known better.

  When I was a child, I was so shy and timid, I barely spoke. I was well into adulthood before I began to talk enough to have conversations. And now I can’t shut up.

I had liposculpture because I couldn't celebrate my body, despite wanting to

I feel bad about what I’m going to do here. It was Nora Ephron who wrote that. It was the introduction to her first essay. I’m quoting her because I feel bad about what I’m going to confess here, which is that I recently had liposculpture on my tummy. I had no idea what liposculpture was when I first heard about it but it’s a little like liposuction, in that, yes, fat is removed. But it’s a more precise, gentler version of it. Right now, I’m a size 10, sometimes…

More cancer patients now have insurance because of health care law

The Affordable Care Act has led to a dramatic decrease in the number of adults with cancer who lacked health insurance, new research shows. But whether future changes to this law could reverse the trend remains to be seen. “We wanted to understand what the ACA did, especially for vulnerable populations,” according to Aparna Soni, a doctoral candidate at the Kelley School of Business of Indiana University whose research on the topic was published Thursday in the journal JAMA Oncology. “Cancer treatment can be expensive or unaffordable for people without…
