    Sperm team up and swim in shoals like fish heading upstream in the fallopian tubes to reach a woman's egg, a study has found. Researchers at Cornell University, in Ithaca, New York, and North Carolina A&T (NC A&T) revealed those in groups were more likely to swim in a straight line and — when there was a current — were less likely to be swept away. But they were not faster than their rivals going it alone. Scientists said the research could help with selecting sperm for use in the fertility treatment in-vitro fertilization (IVF), because the method removes natural checks on weaker sperm found in the female reproductive system. More and more couples are having to opt for IVF because people are having children later or due to tumbling sperm counts leaving them struggling to conceive. Several thousand babies are born via the method in the U.S. every year. Shown above are some of the bull sperm in the study. The yellow circles indicate which are swimming in groups in the above image RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next ...
    A COUPLE has left everyone stunned after they revealed the results of their incredible caravan renovation.  Emilie and Jon spent just £400 on the grand makeover after moving into the 20-year-old caravan while they work on the land they want to build on - and it looks so cosy, we wouldn’t blame them for never moving out. 5The couple invested in a caravan and have made it a homeCredit: camp_out_west/Tik Tok Speaking in a video on their TikTok account @camp_out_west, the pair explained the backstory behind their decision to buy an abandoned caravan park and make it into their home. Emilie said: “We just sold our house and bought three acres of land so we can build a tiny home. “So today we thought we’d show you our 20 year old caravan which we’ve just renovated so that we have somewhere to live while we start working cleaning the land.” Then they began the grand tour, as they opened the doors and gave their followers a peek into the bright white surroundings with monochrome accessories.  Read More in TransformationsA-DOOR IT...
    Fitness coach and mum-of-four Sophie Guidolin has shared the simple four-step skincare routine she swears by for clearing up her adult acne - and the results speak for themselves. The 32-year-old nutritionist and personal trainer behind THE BOD took to Instagram on Tuesday with a transformation photo to showcase what her skin looked like a year ago. 'I was saying to Andrew the other night imagine being able to see a year in the future and know how good life was going to be?' Her caption began. 'To be able to go back and reassure yourself that everything life was throwing your way is simply to gain your strength, build resilience and gain more experience to better empathise with those who may need it in your future.

    Normally, higher prices are good for producers. In the case of wheat, uncertainty over access to Europe’s breadbasket is just creating a cloudy future. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is the single biggest reason that the price of wheat has increased since late February, said Theresa Sisung, an industry relations specialist with the Michigan Farm Bureau. Before the war started, winter wheat — the kind most grown in Michigan — was selling for $8.50 a bushel. This week, it’d increased to $12. May’s edition of World Agriculture Supply and Demand Estimates, a publication of the United States Department of Agriculture, estimates that the average per-bushel price for the 2022-23 year will be $10.23, the highest in history and topping the previous record of $8.02 set in 2008, according to the Michigan Farm News, itself a Michigan Farm Bureau publication. Much of that will get eaten up in higher costs, Sisung said. The same uncertainty that has produced higher wheat prices has also hit energy costs, leading to higher fertilizer costs and — as everyone knows — higher gasoline prices. Ken Morris:...
    Victor Escalon, of the Texas Department of Public Safety was grilled by reporters on Thursday afternoon over new information indicating authorities waited an hour before entering the classroom where the Uvalde massacre shooter had barricaded himself inside with children. As the press conference became increasingly tense, one reporter asked about reports “that some parents were asking to borrow police armor so they could make a counterassault on the school?” “I have heard that information. But we have not verified that yet,” Escalon responded. “What part haven’t you verified?” shouted out another reporter. “We have not verified if that is a true statement or not, or is it just rumor out there? You got to understand. We’re getting a lot of information. We’re trying to track down and see what is true. We want to vet it,” Escalon replied before trying to end the presser. “That’s all I have for questions. Thank you so much,” he said. “Did you follow best practices?” shouted another reporter over a loud wave of noise and questions. “Hold on, hold on,” Escalon said, addressing the...

    A DOCTOR  has had an eyebrow transplant - because she was fed up of putting on makeup every morning.

    Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear, a Democrat, choked up Monday as he confirmed that 64 people died and at least 105 people were unaccounted-for after a series of deadly tornadoes hit the Bluegrass State. "I know like the folks in western Kentucky ... I'm not doing so well today," he said at a televised press conference. "I was working on getting the confirmed deaths this morning and realized I was writing on the back of notes that one of my kids took from school, and here is what it is. It's notes on inertia: 'It means that an object that's in motion will stay in motion.' So we're gonna keep putting one foot in front of the other, push through this ... We're not going anywhere." PENN'S FEMALE SWIMMERS 'ANGRY' OVER TRANSGENDER TEAMMATE'S 'UNFAIR' SUCCESS Kentucky was hit by at least four tornadoes , and one remained grounded in Kentucky for at least 200 miles, Beshear said.

    WHILE MOST people start growing into their adult features in secondary school, there are always some late bloomers.

    MANCHESTER, England—Britain is, you may have noticed, not doing tremendously well at the moment. England is recording around 40,000 new COVID-19 cases every day—a rate much higher than all its European neighbors—supermarket shelves are emptier than they are elsewhere, and for a few weeks, there was no fuel to be found in the south of the country. British voters were promised sunlit uplands when they voted for Brexit and, instead, they are getting raw sewage dumped directly into their rivers. In this context, the Conservative party conference, which took place last month, felt especially odd. The government and its lawmakers and advisers gathered in Manchester and, to put it simply, had a lovely time. The champagne was flowing at drinks receptions and the politicians were, more than anything, just happy to spend time together after 18 months of isolation. “Two words: COVID and Brexit.” “The general mood is pretty buoyant,” said one former Conservative adviser who worked in Downing Street. “People are pretty happy, and pretty confident with the way that things are going.” But how? Well, there is an...
    BEING a new parent is stressful enough, let alone in a pandemic.  It can be hard to keep the flames of passion burning when you barely have time to breathe. 4Sun Sexpert and mum-of-one Georgie says her sex life suffered after having a babyCredit: Olivia West 4Georgie says a good sex life keeps couples happy in and out of the bedroomCredit: Olivia West Our son is 22 months old and we love him to the moon and back but toddlers are hard work - and knackering. It’s easy to neglect your sex life and relationship when you’ve got a little one to look after.  When my partner Ben and I first met we were having sex six times a day (at least) but after having a baby we were lucky if got it once a week.  Like Billie Connelly in the raunchy Netflix series Sex/Life, I’d often find myself fantasising about my former carefree days, what normal mum doesn’t? So I decided to channel my inner Billie and recreate those experiences to spice things up between us.  I wrote...
    THE mixed martial arts world is still processing the fallout from the UFC's first pay-per-view event of 2021 - as it should be. To quote Jon Anik, the MMA world was 'turned on its axis' last Sunday by the pride of Lafayette, Louisiana, former interim UFC lightweight champion Dustin Poirier. 6A dejected Conor McGregor and his team look on after The Notorious' UFC 257 loss to Dustin PoirierCredit: Getty 6Dustin Poirier drops Conor McGregor with a big right hook before finishing him off with two academic strikesCredit: Sportsfile After nearly seven years of waiting, Poirier exacted revenge on Conor McGregor in the main event of UFC 257 in Abu Dhabi. Fan favourite Poirier registered an emphatic second-round TKO victory over his old featherweight rival to level their series at one apiece and further cement his status as the best active lightweight on the planet. The victory - the biggest of Poirier's career - was seismic, to say the least. But for some reason, he isn't being given his dues by fight fans. Instead, much of the prevailing narrative from the...

    As the Trump kids struggle with the realization of their father’s diminished station within the Republican Party and the world, they continue their signature missteps. Yes, the president’s large adult children aren’t taking their father’s unraveling in stride. In fact, the presidential spawns, who have long considered themselves the future of the Republican Party of which they’ve only been members since 2016 are now like violinists on the Titanic serenading daddy as he continues to kill his constituents.  Ivanka Trump continues her nebulous work creating “initiatives.” First there was the great “success” of her Women's Global Development and Prosperity Initiative, which won praise from daddy’s Secretary of State, Mike “the Rapture Is Coming” Pompeo, even if no one has heard much about it since February. Ivanka has now decided to pivot to unemployment. And who better to talk about jobs than the woman who has never had one? But that’s not really fair. Ivanka has had so many jobs! She worked for her dad’s failing hotel business, she “wrote” “books,” she sold diamond jewelry with a tax cheater name Moshe...
