  • Thinning hair? Nutritionists reveal how you can EAT your way to thick, shiny hair

    Getty Images But there are things you can do to fight hair loss - including what you eat. Nutritionists have revealed the foods you should be eating to get the best hair possible - and first up is fat. Having a dry scalp and dull looking hair could be due to a deficiency in healthy fats. Lily Soutter, nutritionist and weight loss expert, said: “Omega 3 fats nourish and condition hair follicles giving you strong, shiny hair. “Aim for 2-3 portions a week of oily fish – wild salmon, fresh mackerel, tuna, anchovies, herring and sardines as well as ground flaxseeds, flaxseed oil, chia seeds, walnuts.” Aloe vera is not just for sunburn, as Shona Wilkinson, nutritionist at Superfooduk.com explained:

  • Scotland needs £10billion reserve to start own currency says pro-independence think-tank

    GETTY The astonishing admission is yet another huge body-blow to Nicola Sturgeon's attempts to break away from the UK. If the country ever voted to become independent the Scottish Government would need to find the huge sum in order to hold in a foreign reserve fund, according to the study by pro-independence group, Common Weal. Researchers claim £10 billion would be a "significant sum" to raise but "not an insurmountable one", suggesting Scotland could acquire a share of the UK's foreign reserve as part of any separation agreement. However, critics have said the introduction of a separate currency would be "disastrous" for the Scottish economy and have even branded the suggestion "totally unrealistic".

  • Rosberg takes pole for home race ahead of Hamilton

    By Abhishek Takle HOCKENHEIM, Germany (Reuters) - Nico Rosberg set a scorching pace under pressure on Saturday to seize pole position, ahead of Mercedes team mate Lewis Hamilton, in qualifying for his home German Formula One Grand Prix. Rosberg, determined to take back the championship lead from Hamilton on Sunday after losing it in last weekend's race in Hungary, lapped the 4.5-km Hockenheim track in one minute 14.363 seconds. The German had only one flying lap to set his time, however, after being forced to abandon his first attempt in the final pole-position phase of qualifying due to an electronics problem.

  • Katie Derham: I hoped there’d be a glamorous life out there for me somewhere

    I had all sorts of dreams as a child but none of them was realistic. When I was nine, Dad converted our box room into a bedroom so I no longer had to share with my brother. It was tiny, but I spent hours drawing up floor plans and convinced myself I’d become an interior designer. Later, as a sixth-former, I went to a talk by Esther Rantzen that was all about being your own boss and starting your own business. I thought, “Yes! That’s what I’ll do!” I was desperately unsuited to be that person, too. Then, at 17, my family moved to Mexico for two terms for Dad’s work and it allowed for a certain amount of reinvention. I went to an international school where all the students were bilingual and no
