Fashion Review: Even in the #MeToo Moment, Sex Stays on the Runway

LONDON — Sex is a minefield at the moment. Amid the uprisings of the #MeToo movement, with the frank acknowledgment that harassment has long hidden under the banner of flirtation and abuse has run roughshod over consent, most fashion designers have clamped down on overt celebrations of sex appeal.

Barcelona news: Tottenham flop Paulinho does something in LaLiga not even Lionel Messi has done

Sorry, Tottenham fans… this doesn’t make for good reading Monday, February 19, 2018 Barcelona were the laughing stock of the football world when they completed the signing of Paulinho over the summer. Despite being a relatively consistent Brazil international since 2011, he is most well-known on these shores for his hilariously bad spell with Tottenham Hotspur. Paulinho somehow managed to play 67 matches for the north Londoners, despite the fact that he appeared, at times, to not actually be a professional footballer. His shooting was woeful and he was lazy…

Smoking even 1 cigarette a day increases heart disease, stroke risk

For those who find it too hard to quit cigarettes cold turkey, the strategy is often to cut back instead — perhaps even to as little as one cigarette per day. Now, new research published this week in the medical journal BMJ shows that this cutting back may not improve health as much as many people might think. In fact, this study suggests that smoking just one cigarette a day carries approximately 50 percent of the added risk of developing heart disease and stroke that comes with smoking 20 cigarettes…

Micro moments of exercise you can squeeze into your day, even at your desk

A lack of time is perhaps the most common excuse for not exercising, but we can get a lot of bang for our proverbial buck in a very short period. About 60 per cent of us struggle to achieve the minimum recommendation of exercise a week (2.5-5 hours of moderate-intensity exercise or 1.5-2.5 hours of intense exercise).

Even if you don't know you're sick yet, your face will give you away
