    Feeling a little peckish? This hypnotic video showing a miniature Victoria Sponge being made is bound to capture the minds of bakers – thanks to the skills of a Great British Bake-Off winner. Measuring just a few centimetres tall, the small bake was created by the 2019 winner of the show, David Atherton. 1One third of us say we love to bake and two thirds say that when they bake, they make too muchCredit: Getty As part of the Guide Dogs fundraising appeal, David mixes together tiny amounts of ingredients, including three-quarters of a teaspoon of egg, three quarters of a teaspoon of butter, one-and-a-half teaspoons of sugar. It shows the miniature sponge being whisked before it’s popped inside a normal cooking oven – meaning you can bake at home alongside your everyday cooking. After just eight minutes, the tiny cake is taken out the oven and topped with a dollop of jam, cream and strawberries before being squished together with another layer of Victoria Sponge.   David, who has teamed up with Guide Dogs as part of its annual...
    Zach Wilson hasn’t seen live game action in about six weeks. But Sunday could be a rude awakening for the second-year quarterback out of BYU against a tough Pittsburgh Steelers defense. Wilson is expected to start Sunday after being cleared by doctors on Wednesday following his knee procedure last month. So how has Wilson looked in his return? “The thing that stuck out to me the most was just how free and how excited he is to be back out there with his teammates,” Jets offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur said. “He’s pumped and it’s going to take myself and the rest of the offensive unit, everyone. It’s not just him. “We can’t go into Sunday trying to get all six weeks that he missed all back in one play, one quarter, one half, one game. Just go play your game and make the most of each opportunity you get and handle each play as it is.” Wilson hasn’t played a game since the preseason opener on Aug. 12 against the Philadelphia Eagles where he suffered a bone bruise and a...
    JGI/Jamie Grill If you're one of the millions of Americans with student loans, President Joe Biden's forgiveness plan may be welcome relief. However, there are some key things to know about the income limits, experts say. Biden will cancel $10,000 for most borrowers or up to $20,000 for Pell Grant recipients, limited to those making less than $125,000 per year or $250,000 for married couples filing together or heads of household. And financial advisors have already received a flurry of client questions, including whether their income may be too high to qualify for the debt relief. More from Personal Finance:Are your student loans eligible for federal forgiveness? What we knowWhat President Biden's student loan forgiveness means for your taxes'It's a game changer.' Pell Grant recipients react to student loan forgiveness "I have a lot of clients who are somewhere on the cusp," many of whom are mid-career, dual-earning households, said Ethan Miller, a certified financial planner and founder of Planning for Progress, specializing in student loans in the Washington, D.C., area. Adjusted gross income is the 'magic number'While eligibility may be...

    Southern California officials have started to install devices to limit the water flow to homes that are using too much. According to KABC, the Las Virgenes Municipal Water District, which serves communities in western Los Angeles like Calabasas and Agoura Hills, has installed four water flow restrictors since last Wednesday. Source: CBS Los Angeles/Youtube Once the device is installed, it stays at the home for two weeks while the customer works on conserving water methods. If customers attempt to remove the device, they could face a $2,500 fine. In April this year, the water district announced that the amount of water for outdoor use would be reduced from 75 percent down to 50 due to the drought and the historic three-month stretch of the driest winter months on record. “Outdoor water uses, such as filling pools and landscape irrigation, account for up to 70% of all residential water usage, so here lies the greatest opportunity for savings. Much of the low-hanging fruit to reduce water use indoors has already been ‘picked,'” the water district said in a statement....
    Many teenagers experience a rollercoaster of emotions that can leave their families reeling.  But experiencing these violent mood swings in adulthood can be potentially damaging to relationships and overall wellbeing.  Speaking to FEMAIL, Jessica Sepel, an Australian clinical nutritionist and founder of JSHealth, and Tom MacLaren, a consultant psychiatrist, explained the common causes of these mood swings later in life - and how simple lifestyle changes could help you become more balanced.  Jessica told how having too much white bread, sugary food or caffeine can all lead to imbalances in the body that can lead to mood swings, as can issues with hormone levels.  Meanwhile Dr MacLaren said these mood swings could be a symptom of a deeper rooted mental health issue that might require more attention...  Many teenagers experience a rollercoaster of emotions that can leave their families reeling.

    MUMS have been showing off what they do for their kids on Valentine’s Day, and some pull out all the stops. From colourful decorations to heart-shaped food and presents, parents have been revealing their very thoughtful traditions. 3Mums have been sharing what they will do for their kids on Valentine's DayCredit: FAMILY LOWDOWN TIPS & IDEAS/ facebook 3Many parents are doing heart-shaped food and decorationsCredit: FAMILY LOWDOWN TIPS & IDEAS/ facebook A mum took to Facebook and started a debate after saying: “What lovely things have you done for your children on Valentine’s day?” And while some families put aside a lot of time and effort into pulling off a magical day for their kids, other people said they didn’t see why the day should include kids. One mum showed how she covers the lounge in heart-shaped balloons and petals and puts on a themed feast. She said: “I always put out a few balloons and decorations for my little girl, make a special afternoon tea and get a little gift like a teddy. “I’m a single mum and so...
    It’s one thing to shop and find the “best deals” on a random assortment of unplanned things, using those sale prices as a guiding light, but it’s quite another to fill the pantry with healthy food and save money all the while. For many of us, shopping is too riddled with buying things on special when we could be saving more by going for groceries that are a smarter choice. In other words, there is no point in saving money at the cost of health, and no real savings when buying on a whim. With that in mind, avoiding spending too much at the supermarket becomes a completely different game. To have a healthy diet, the first trick is to buy the food we want rather than the food that’s cheapest. Better yet, we should buy the food we want at its cheapest. In order to do that, we might need to change the way we shop as well as the way we prepare our food at home. Stick to the List Possibly the golden rule of thrifty supermarket...
    A MUM who makes her sons do 12,000 steps per day in order to earn video game time at the weekend has defended her parenting method. The woman took to TikTok to share a clip of her son on the treadmill, trying to get to his daily step count. 2A mum has taken to TikTok to share her way of getting her kids to earn their video game time at the weekendCredit: TikTok "12,000 steps per day to earn video game play time on the weekend," she wrote on top of the video. She quickly attracted comments from other parents criticising her for the move. "Ok go walk with him around a park then. not this," one person wrote, while another added: "Things he will talk about in therapy." However, the mum hit back to that comment, writing: "Like how he asked me to get on after I just finished. "I don’t force him on the treadmill, but yes, if he wants to play video games he has to be active." She also added a...

    A SHOCKING image has revealed the damage too much screen time can do can to your eyes. Whether it's staring at a screen all day for work, or spending hours binging on Netflix, we tend to put our eyes through their paces on a daily basis. 2 New research has revealed how our eye health could be impacted in the future and how to protect and prevent Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS). Most of us are surrounded by blue light and most of the time, are unaware of it. Skin expert for Digital Defence, Dr Johanna Ward explained: "High energy blue light can cause significant damage to the eyes and the skin causing accelerated ageing - not only from direct exposure but from our skins ability to repair itself.  "HEV light is emitted by the sun so it’s not a new exposure for us but nowadays we are all getting extra doses of HEV through our modern tech - it’s emitted from our super-sized televisions, our LED light bulbs, our computer screens and our phones." Spending too much time in front of a screen...
    BRITS chug 407 pints a year but still consume less than other European nations, a new study has revealed. But how do you know if you have a problem with booze? 3As pubs reopen, many Brits say they are concerned about their drinking habitsCredit: Getty Each week individual Brits are said to plough through 4.4 pints of beer or 2.3 bottles on average. The NHS recommends that both women and men have no more than 14 units of booze a week, with a pint of beer equating for around two units depending on strength. Data from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) shows that most of Europe's major nations actually drink more than Brits. The report states that government need to do more to tackle binge drinking. A recent study by drug, alcohol and mental health charity With You found that one in four adults are concerned about their drinking habits as pubs reopen after coronavirus restrictions ended on indoor hospitality on Monday. As well as one in four adults having concerns about their own drinking habits, the poll also...
    Savannah Rychcik April 23, 2021 0 Comments Former President Barack Obama is telling Black Americans there is still work to do as the nation continues to combat racism and police brutality. During an interview with Black Entertainment Television (BET) published Thursday, Obama acknowledged, “This is an incredibly tough time for a lot of folks.” Obama noted how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted Black communities at a higher rate and “all of a sudden, you’re adding grief and fear on top of all the other emotions folks were already feeling.” Touching on the issue of police brutality, Obama said, “It can make you wonder if things will ever get better.” Arguing “people who benefit from keeping things the way they are — they are counting on your cynicism,” Obama continued, “They know they can’t win you over with their policies. So they’re hoping to convince you that your vote, and your voice, doesn’t matter. That’s how they win.” Calling on Black Americans to “keep marching, keep speaking up, keep voting,” Obama reminded them if they feel as...
    WITH The Grand Tour being shown across the world, Richard Hammond is a global car star. But when he finishes filming the motoring show in far-flung countries and returns to his wife and children, the 51-year-old petrolhead knows his place. 11The Grand Tour's Richard Hammond takes on some new challenges with his new solo TV show for The Great Escapists for Amazon Prime And that is right at the bottom of the pecking order at home in Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire, where he has to do what his wife Mindy and daughters Isabella, 20, and 17-year-old Willow want to do. In an exclusive chat, Richard says: “I don’t come home and expect the household to fit around me. “We have a rule which we ­implemented when Izzy was born, that the house runs without me when I’m away, and when I come home I try to meekly find a place in it. “It has always been like that and it is a subtle thing, a nuanced thing, but it is critical. 11Richard has been missing his brushes with danger having not filmed...
    Getty Carson Wentz is excited to work with his new speed threats on offense. There have been many knocks on Carson Wentz in this most unpredictable year, football and otherwise. From pandemics to paramedics, it’s been hard to watch at times. The Eagles remain on the cusp of greatness — seriously, look at the standings — and the franchise quarterback is eight games away from making everyone eat their words. Maybe even his own. Wentz is never going to apologize for his aggressiveness. Neither will his head coach or quarterbacks coach. Yet the 27-year-old gunslinger was man enough to admit that there are times when he can “eat the play.” That means throwing the ball away instead of taking a sack (Wentz’s 32 lead the NFL) and not trying to jam the pigskin into tight windows (Wentz’s 12 interceptions lead the NFL). According to Wentz, it’s all a matter of knowing the down and distance — and understanding when to “live to play another down.” “It’s walking that fine line of aggressiveness and eating the play,” Wentz told...
    Meghan McCain slammed an Atlantic writer who called for “empathy” and “forgiveness” for Jeffrey Toobin following the New Yorker reporter’s suspension after he exposed his penis during a company Zoom call. “Do you know what Occam’s razor means?!” the 35-year-old host of “The View” tweeted Tuesday to Atlantic staff journalist Conor Friedersdorf. (RELATED: ‘He Provided A Public Service’: Joy Behar Thanks Jeffrey Toobin For Distracting From Trump) “Also, it’s not too much for women to ask the men we do conference calls with not be jerking off,” she added. “It’s REALLY NOT THAT MUCH TO ASK – along with it being assault and perversion.” (RELATED: Media Reacts After Former Fox News Editor Blasts New Yorker Exposé) Do you know what Occam’s razor means?!

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS)- The Eagles season has already begun to draw the ire of fans, even without them being able to attend games. At 0-2, the team ranks dead last by a sizable margin in Football Outsiders’ DVOA metric, which measures the efficiency of every team in the league. The culprit in that ranking has been the offense which is also in the cellar below the struggling units of the Giants, Washington Football team and Jets. While there are plenty of factors to point to for the unit’s slow start, the one driving the conversation is the play of quarterback Carson Wentz. After impressing down the stretch of the 2019 season with his quick decision making and avoiding interceptions, Wentz has gone backwards to start this season. Through two games he has thrown four interceptions with an interception rate (4.7%) double that of even his rookie season (2.3%). He has done so while completing 58% of his passes and tossing just two touchdowns on the year. So what is happening with the Eagles QB? NFL on CBS analyst James Lofton boils...
    IT'S supposed to be the most important day of your life - so it's only natural that most brides want all eyes to be on them at their wedding. That said, the only fashion "rule" guests have to follow is avoiding the colour white at all costs - but that wasn't enough for one bride-to-be. 3The bride felt this floral full length dress was inappropriate for her winter wedding because of its trainCredit: Facebook Posting on the Facebook group That's It, I'm Wedding Shaming, the Canadian bride explained how one guest is planning on wearing floral full-length dress to her winter wedding later this year. "She is not being malicious," the bride wrote. "Rather [she is] being encouraged by people to wear it. My family, specifically my mom, think I'm insane to have any questions about this dress." As well as taking issue with the dress' train, the bride feared it would detract from her own gown - and not fit in with her small ceremony. "I'm certain the person in this picture is just trying hard to look nice...
    Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg testifies before the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Antitrust, Commercial and Administrative Law on "Online Platforms and Market Power" in the Rayburn House office Building on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC on July 29, 2020.Mandel Ngan | AFP | Getty Images Yesterday's Big Tech Congressional hearing featured something that's exceedingly rare in Washington: bipartisan agreement.  Sure, there was the expected grandstanding about hypothetical conservative bias, and weird questions about emails going into spam folders and when HBO Max would be on Amazon Fire TV. But there was also a strikingly consistent belief among the 15 members of the U.S. House of Representatives' Antitrust Subcommittee that Apple, Amazon, Facebook and Google have too much power. Both Republican and Democratic Congressmen laid out instances where companies have stifled competition, including Amazon using data from third-party sellers against them and Facebook's internal discussions about how buying startups Instagram and WhatsApp could choke off eventual threats.  So Congress thinks there's a real problem here. But we didn't learn anything about what they plan to do about it. And that's probably because the members...
