    Can you recommend any natural sleep remedies? I keep waking in the middle of the night and cannot get back to sleep for at least two hours. I am a healthy, fit 52-year-old man. The unfortunate truth about sleep problems is that there is often no easy fix. It can take time and patience to arrive at a long-term solution that works. If a patient is waking up in the middle of the night, doctors will first consider obvious factors that disrupt sleep. This includes too much caffeine in the daytime, needing to go to the toilet at night, and exercising in the evening. Physical activity can aid sleep, but it can be over-stimulating if you do it just before bed. Sleep environment is also really important. Doctors call this sleep hygiene – although it has nothing to do with cleanliness. It's about considering factors such as how dark the bedroom is, if it's a comfortable temperature and if it is sufficiently quiet. Most people don't realise we tend to sleep better in a slightly cooler room. An eye mask...

    Poor digestion is something no one wants to deal with, yet something we’ve all experienced at some point or another.

    A recent report details a concerning future for Britain’s trade deals regarding farm animals since Brexit. If the country does not act quickly, there could be an increase in imports of animal products that are produced in inhumane, unsustainable, and cruel conditions. Source: ITV News/YouTube The United Kingdom is known to have relatively high welfare standards for animals. However, all these laws are at risk if Britain begins to import animal products from countries with much more relaxed laws. This could include countries that allow a wide range of animal abuse, like forcing animals to travel for days in horrible conditions without food or water or killing them without stunning them first. Another practice that is often used in Australia is called “mulesing,” which involves removing the skin of sheep without any anesthetic. The new report from ResPublica urges the government to take immediate action to make new standards and welfare laws. We need to pressure the UK Department of International Trade to create clear standards for ethical animal trade. Sign this petition to demand that the UK...
    YOU'VE probably heard of using an eyelash curler, serum, or primer to curl your eyelashes – but one innovative TikToker claimed there's another way. Mia DeLuca showed viewers how she gets her eyelashes to stay curled all day using an unexpected tool, but people disagreed with her method. 3TikTok user Mia DeLuca revealed the unique way she keeps her eyelashes curled all-dayCredit: TIKTOK/miadeluca 3Mia uses a hair dryer on the cool setting while she puts on mascaraCredit: TIKTOK/miadeluca Even if you layer multiple coats of mascara on top of a white primer or curled lashes, you may notice the volume fall throughout the day. Yet TikTok's curled lash creator Mia doesn't have that problem. Mia made a video demonstrating the uncommon way she keeps her lashes up all day, and her method was not well-received.

    Getty Vikings star receiver Justin Jefferson admitted to frustrations during the Vikings' win over the Lions. Minnesota Vikings star Justin Jefferson proved he’s no fluke in the NFL, following up a record-breaking rookie season with an even better second year in the league. And now, the competition is adamant about taking him out of the Vikings’ game plan. Head coach Kevin O’Connell counted just eight or nine snaps where Jefferson didn’t see “some variation” of a double team in a Week 3 victory over the Detroit Lions. It led to the least productive game of Jefferson’s career — just three catches for 14 yards on six targets. With added attention on Jefferson, the Vikings’ other pass-catchers capitalized with Detroit’s defense surrendering other parts of the field to stop Jefferson. Adam Thielen and K.J. Osborn combined for 11 receptions, 154 yards and two touchdowns, including Osborn’s 28-yard game-winning touchdown with 45 seconds left in the game. The win was most important to Jefferson, however, he admitted there was plenty of frustration throughout the game.Justin Jefferson: It Was ‘Difficult to...
    As we move deeper into food production, it’s important to remember where our food comes from: the soil. Whether we are fruitarians, herbivores, or carnivores, the root of nutrition is all the same. Grains, vegetables, fruit, and pulses sprout forth from the earth, and wherever down the food chain they may land, those plant-based treats are at the heart of what we all eat, from the lowliest fungi to the mightiest lion. To make a long diversion brief, we have got to take care of the soil. Not only does the soil give our plants the buffet of nutrients we are after, but also, in doing so, our fruit and veggies (and nuts and grains and beans and so on) taste better because they have that huge palette of vitamins and minerals from which to layer the flavor. Grow a tomato in good soil, and there is no comparison to those hydroponic supermarket items that have become the substandard standard. Unfortunately, in the last few decades especially, humanity has not done the most stellar job of this seemingly simple...

    Amid Roe V. Wade being overturned, abortion seekers are looking for ‘safe harbors’ where they can go to get the services that they need. States are banning abortion in nearly all cases, and we cannot let America turn into a nightmare for those who need these services. Source: WFSB 3/Youtube Connecticut recently passed a safe harbor law that restricts how health care records are accessed by plaintiffs in bounty cases. Safe harbor laws protect people seeking abortions as well as abortion providers from “bounty” laws. Bounty laws incentivize people by giving cash rewards to successfully sue those who have helped a person get an illegal abortion. There is no reason that other states cannot pass similar safe harbor laws like Connecticut to protect pregnant people!

Here are some reasons why your music might be pausing on Spotify and what you can do to prevent it from happening. Why does my Spotify keep pausing? Spotify gives several reasons why it may keep pausing your music. The first one might be that the installation on your phone was not made right. Try uninstalling and then reinstalling the app on your phone, and hopefully, that should work.

    A 1,300-pound walrus named Freya captured hearts in Norway and became somewhat of a tourist attraction in the city. However, Norway warned that the public was coming too close to the wild animal and threatened to kill her if the public did not stay away. Source: NewsNation/Youtube The public continued to get close and was even teasing poor Freya. A boat owner was even seen poking Freya with a boat oar to get her off of his boat. During the video, the man even seems to be enjoying taunting the poor animal that is in the water that she called home. Heartbreaking news came just days after the government’s threats, and they ultimately euthanized Freya. Walruses are protected in Norway, and previously, the Directorate of Fisheries said that euthanasia was out of the question, so what changed? It is not her fault that humans would not stay away from her. She was not hurting anyone and was simply in her natural habitat. There is no reason that authorities should not have handled the public and monitored the situation...

    A CARBOOT salesman has armed himself with anti-tank defences, chain locks and even hired security just to keep travellers off his land. Mark Greenfield spotted 30 vehicles - most of which caravans - descend on a recreation ground near his fields. 3Mark placed two anti-tank concrete defences - which each weigh a tonne - blocking his gatesCredit: SWNS Fearing his patch was getting eyed up next, he took matters into his own hands and rolled out the military-grade measures. Mark, from Gillingham, in Kent, said: "I am trying to stop them getting on the field. "I do not want them on here. I have had to go to extremes and I would go to more if I had to." His actions follow a disastrous incident back in July which saw 20 caravans invade Mark's field. They broke in through his gates and were pitched up for three days. The travellers were issued a section 61 leading to their dispersal. The order gives police the power to tell an encampment to leave once certain conditions are met. But despite staying...
    While most people know that cow skin is used for leather, many don’t realize that so is kangaroo skin. This industry is another extremely sad example of animal exploitation at the hands of humans. Millions of kangaroos are slaughtered every year., and while those in favor of killing kangaroos insist that they aren’t suffering needlessly, the reality is the majority of the hunting offers nothing but immense cruelty. Oftentimes, the hunter misses and the kangaroo is left in agonizing pain, sometimes for weeks, before dying. These kangaroos are ripped from the wild, and stolen from their families, all because companies want to make a profit. Source: The Center for a Humane Economy/YouTube Although California has banned the selling and importing of products made with kangaroo skin, Nike, Puma, and other companies have not complied with this ban.

    DEAR ABBY: After 15 years of marriage — some happy and some horrible — I am divorcing my husband. We have two beautiful, amazing children together. I would love to have the same last name they do, but I cannot imagine keeping my husband’s last name. His family was awful to me during our entire marriage. What should I do? Should I keep his last name so I have the same one as my children, or should I change it back to my maiden name? MOVING ON IN TEXAS DEAR MOVING ON: This isn’t the ’50s. There is no shame in having a different name than your children. Many women with children change their names after a divorce. Because your married name carries painful connotations, feel free to resume using your maiden name, or adopt another one of your own choosing.

    DEAR HARRIETTE: My kids go to a private school. We saved all we could to get them there and received a bit of financial aid. Now that summer is here, they are noticing the differences between us and some of their friends. Many of their peers are off to Europe or some other fancy vacation destination. Some are at sleepaway camp. We can’t afford that. We do want to design a special summer for them, but what we normally do is go down South to visit family for the summer. The kids play with their cousins and get to see their grandmother. That has been their fun up until now. I want to keep up that tradition and somehow get them to see the value in that.
