  • Schoolgirl found hanging after 'rare allergy to wi-fi made her life a misery'

    Jenny's parents are now campaigning to have wi-fi banned in all schools. Mrs Fry said it got to the stage where Jenny would hide herself away in unused classrooms in the school to work just so she could escape the wi-fi. "As soon as Jenny walked away from a router she felt instantly better. She was aware of what was going on, but nothing could be done. "It's a misunderstood condition and schools are reluctant to do anything because the wi-fi companies have money and tell schools it is safe." Simon Duffy, headteacher at Chipping Norton School, which Jenny attended, said the safety of students was paramount. He added: "Jenny's safety at school was just as important as anyone else's. "Just like

  • HOT FOOTBALL GOSSIP: Muller, Falcao, Ronaldo, Herrera, Neves

    The papers have had a full day since Diego Costa’s fight with a bib in the White Hart Lane dugout to come up with Chelsea’s replacement for the angry striker, and the man they’ve chosen is Thomas Muller. The back page of today’s Mirror screams “Muller in, Mauler out”, which is one of those times you wonder whether they came up with the headline before the actual story, as the tabloid declares that the Blues are “ready to rival Manchester United” in the race to sign the Bayern Munich superstar. Maybe they know deep down there’s even less chance of Muller quitting the Allianz Arena for Stamford Bridge than there is of him moving to Old Trafford - a switch that has already been categorically ruled out by the Germans.

  • The Truth Behind That 'Alien Megastructure' Is Weirder Than We Thought

    When NASA's Kepler Telescope revealed that it had found what could have been an 'alien megastructure' orbiting a distant star, it didn't take long for both the wider community and the public to embrace what could have been our first glimpse at alien life. Sadly, and as is usually the case, Kepler's scientists have been hard at work trying to ruin all our dreams and have come up with a more likely alternative. Rather than being a large group of interconnected structures, researchers believe that the strange light coming from the star is because is being engulfed by a swarm of comets.

  • It's time we declared war on pensioners

    Of course, I know that anecdotes aren’t data. But there’s quite a bit of that too. Last month, the Institute for Fiscal Studies made a rather interesting announcement. According to its analysis, the median income for pensioners in 2013/14 was £398 a week, while the median income for working age people was £384.  The IFS’s director, Paul Johnson went on to explain that while pensioners had once had it tough, this was ancient history. “What we’ve seen consistently since the 1980s is pensioner income rising in relation to non-pensioner income,” he explained, before adding, “Younger people, whose incomes are falling, are paying for these pensions and are suffering from the fact that someone else q

  • Hong Kong: Pole Dance World Title goes to Finland

    Finland's Oona Kivela took pole position at the International Pole Dancing Championships in Hong Kong on Friday 27 November. Pole dancing champions from more than 10 countries competed in several categories. Kivela said the stigma associated with pole dancing was not that prevalent anymore. "There is still so much exotic pole around. And I understand, how can people not know, when let's say, a stripper and an exotic pole-dancer could style-wise look extremely the same. Or tempting, with the high heels and whatever. There are so many genres I can't keep up. But we have this style. And I don't think the pole necessarily defines the style at all. I think the dancers do," she said. Australian Deb Roach, who was born with one arm, won the 'disabled' category in the championships. The pole dance artist, circus performer, and fitness instructor said there was a big community of disabled people she wanted to represent. "These guys are incredible. Just to share the stage with them is such an honour for me. And being surrounded by this greatness. By the highest level in this sport and art form is what inspires me and motivates me and pushes me to up my game and push my body to do what most people would consider to be impossible. And what I used to think was impossible," said Roach. Australian candidate Kristy Sellars won performer of the year and top prize for artistry for a Sherlock Holmes-inspired routine. A rookie Russian duo, Evgeny Greshilov and Kira Noire, won best couples routine, despite it being their first time performing together in a competition. Competitors from countries including Argentina, Australia, Finland, Japan, UK and USA were in competition for 11 world titles in five divisions: Mens, Womens, Doubles, Disabled and Masters. The International Pole Dancing Championships was founded in 2008 by Ania Pzeplasko, who is lobbying for Pole Dance Fitness to be recognised as a sport by the Olympic committee.
