    IT’S the age old question that everybody answers differently - how often should you wash your hair?

    Are you always getting lost? Perhaps you struggle to remember a route for a journey you've made countless times?  Or do you have problems finding your way, even in places you know well, such as the building where you work? If your sense of direction is embarrassingly non-existent — and it's a problem you've had since childhood — it could be down to developmental topographical disorientation or DTD, a disorder that researchers in Canada suggest affects up to 2 per cent of the population. The same Canadian team have also recently created a set of online diagnostic tests and are currently working on a virtual reality programme to help people with the condition. Interestingly, most people who have the disorder are competent in every other area of their life and have no cognitive disabilities.  They simply seem to suffer from what amounts to 'directional dyslexia', meaning their navigational skills are impaired or, in some cases, totally lacking. 'People with DTD come from all sorts of careers — they are lawyers, teachers, cleaners and writers,' says Professor Giuseppe Iaria, a cognitive neuroscientist...
    ALDI is as known for its speedy checkouts as it is its bargain prices with customers forever trying to keep up with the high-speed checkout process. But apparently, there's a good reason why checkout staff are moving at a rapid pace, and it might not be what you think. 2A former Aldi employee explained why the cashiers always scan so fastCredit: Alamy A former staff member made the claim on Reddit and explained their reason why, no matter which store you go to, Aldi cashiers work in overdrive. "You actually have to hit a percentage of 83% or higher on item per minute scanned," they reportedly claimed. Adding that management would "get upset" if you "didn't get 95% or above."

    Norway’s Karsten Warholm world-record 400-meter hurdles run at the Tokyo Olympics failed to suffice the track star. Warholm took issue with the type of shoe United States runner Rai Benjamin was wearing during the Olympics. Benjamin was wearing the Nike Air Zoom Dragonflys. The sneaker comes with a thick slab of Pebax foam. According to the UK Independent, the shoes are thought to add about 1-3 seconds per mile to a runner’s mark. Warholm slammed the shoes as "bulls—t" and alleged they affect the runner’s credibility, The Guardian reported. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM "I don’t see why you should put anything beneath a sprinting shoe," he said Wednesday. "In middle distance I can understand it because of the cushioning. If you want cushioning, you can put a mattress there. But if you put a trampoline I think it’s bulls—t, and I think it takes credibility away from our sport." He narrowly beat Benjamin to claim the gold medal and set the new mark. He crossed the line at 45.94. Brazil’s Alison dos Santos won the bronze...
    By MARISSA GARCIA | CalMatters Every morning, when state Sen. Ben Allen would grab the newspaper from outside his Santa Monica home, he’d pull off the plastic sleeve bearing the triangular recycling symbol and throw it where he thought it belonged: in a blue recycling bin. But Allen soon learned that he was “wishcycling”— carefully sorting items with the recycling symbol, only to discover they weren’t getting recycled. “It is technically recyclable under the best of conditions at 1,000 degrees in some lab in San Marino. But… they’re not recycled in the real world,” the Democrat said at an Assembly Natural Resources committee hearing in June. This scenario isn’t unique. Despite the best intentions of Californians who diligently try to recycle yogurt cups, berry containers and other packaging, it turns out that at least 85% of single-use plastics in the state do not actually get recycled. Instead, they wind up in the landfill. “Americans find recycling… more confusing than building IKEA furniture, doing their taxes, playing the stock market or understanding their spouse,” Allen said, citing a study by the...
    TWO-THIRDS of England fans think football's finally coming home this summer ahead of the Euro 2020 semi-final against Denmark. The Three Lions are two wins away from immortality but boss Gareth Southgate has warned the nation against getting carried away. 2 Almost 60 per cent of 8,595 fans polled backed England to beat Denmark on Wednesday before triumphing past either Italy or Spain in the final. A more modest 26.7 per cent felt the country would just fall short while a timid 1156 supporters chose to sit on the fence. COMPETITION: WIN A MERCEDES AMG A45S WORTH £51,000 PLUS UP TO £50k IN CASH England's dominant 4-0 drubbing of Ukraine has sent fans into overdrive but Southgate warned that Denmark - who will be riding ‘a powerful wave of emotion’ - will be a much sterner test. The football world was stunned when Christian Eriksen suffered a cardiac arrest during the Dane's tournament opener against Finland. And Southgate said: “We talk about perspective in sport but we rarely have it and this was a moment (Eriksen’s collapse) that brought it home for all...

    Boulder-based Augustus stumbled into the music world not long after guitarist Jim Herlihy and singer Colin Kelly got drunk at a concert together in 2013. "It was the classic 'get wasted at a show and think how great it would be to start your own band,'" says Herlihy with a laugh. Now 37, Herlihy says he played guitar in college but never imagined performing in real venues. "I didn’t realize I could make the jump from just someone who plays the guitar in your bedroom to someone who could play live.

    Tyler Stanfield wrote his latest single, “Whiskey Heart,” when he was living in Austin, Texas, a few years ago. He says people who aren’t paying attention think it’s a song about drinking. “It’s not,” Stanfield says. “Whiskey is a metaphor. That’s kind of one of the fun things about it is I like to see if people go deeper than just thinking that it’s about getting drunk and doing that kind of thing.” The song is part of an as-yet-unreleased three-track EP and is actually about love, and the overwhelming need for it.
