  • When do the clocks change? What time do the clocks go forward, and why do we have Daylight saving time?

    Daylight Saving Time returns soon and we can look forward to lighter evenings as the winter fades away. Daylight saving time (DST) or summer time is the practice of advancing clocks during summer months by one hour so that in the evening daylight is experienced an hour longer, andnormal sunrise times are sacrificed. Typically, regions with summer time adjust clocks forward one hour close to the start of spring and adjust them backward in the autumn to standard time.

  • New £1 coin: but should I hoard my existing £1 coins?

    By then the Royal Mint had been pondering for at least a year about how best to phase out £1 notes and replace them with a new coin. One, said the Mint, was that "the present range does not have a suitable 'slot' for £1 coin". The Royal Mint's early proposals said "heavy coins 'burn' holes in the ordinary users' pocket, inconvenience those, such as milkmen, who carry around large quantities and add extra transport and security costs for bulk handlers like banks and supermarkets".

  • Conor McGregor Scores Drastically Reduced Punishment for Bottle Throwing Melee

    Conor McGregor‘s challenge of the disciplinary action against him for a press conference altercation with Nate Diaz went before the Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) on Wednesday, where his case was briefly reheard and revised sanctions were agreed upon. McGregor phoned in to an NAC hearing to answer for his part in the fracas, which saw him, Diaz, and Diaz’s team hurling water bottles at each other, bringing the UFC 202 pre-fight press conference to an abrupt end. After much deliberation, which resulted in shifting away from a proposed fine of $300,000, the Nevada commission settled on the somewhat lesser sanctions of a $75,000 fine and 50 hours of community service to produce an anti-bullying campaign, upon which the commission put a value of roughly $75,000.

  • Martin McGuinness dies at 66: Queen to send private message to widow of former IRA commander

    It is a measure of Martin McGuinness’s remarkable transformation from IRA commander to peacemaker that Buckingham Palace announced yesterday that the Queen has decided to send a private letter of condolence to his widow. The IRA had, after all, assassinated Earl Mountbatten of Burma, the Queen’s second cousin and Duke of Edinburgh’s uncle, by placing a bomb on his fishing boat. The earl’s 14-year-old grandson was also murdered in the atrocity in 1979, the same year McGuinness was appointed the Provisional IRA’s chief of staff.

  • Zlatan Ibrahimovic has Pep Guardiola in his sights as Sweden legend admits Barca feud still drives him

    Zlatan Ibrahimovic has revealed he is still motivated by his falling out with Pep Guardiola at Barcelona. Guardiola brought Ibrahimovic to the Nou Camp in 2009 but the relationship between the pair broke down and he was loaned to AC Milan after only a season before making the move permanent. The Swedish striker has been outspoken in his criticism of Guardiola since and, when Manchester United face the Spaniard’s Manchester City side in the derby next month, Ibrahimovic will be especially fired up.
