Sam Faiers urges nation to #LoveYourGut

SHARE STUMBLE SHARE PIN TWEET by Taryn Davies | 30 July 2014 Sam Faiers has teamed up with Love Your Gut to support this year’s Gut Week (11th -17th August 2014). Gut Week is part of Love Your Gut, an ongoing campaign which serves to highlight the vital role of the digestive system and emphasise the importance of maintaining good gut health. Sam, who was diagnosed with Crohn's disease in February this year and bravely made her diagnosis public to raise awareness of the condition and support other sufferers across the UK and Ireland, says: “I’m so excited to be part of Gut Week; my Crohn’s disease has had a huge effect on my life and has shown me how vital looking after your health is. I want to continue raising awareness and help other people deal with their condition like me, with confidence. “I’m proud that I can help and get involved with Gut Week. I hope that by sharing my experiences I can show my support to digestive health sufferers across the UK and Ireland.” The Love Your Gut campaign is co-ordinated by Yakult Ireland in association with leading digestive health charity the Irish society of Crohn’s and Colitis [ISCC]. Over the past nine years, Gut Week has reached millions of people, prompting almost 200,000 members of the public to access the campaign’s advice resources for further information. Tricia McArdle, Crohns Patient and Chairperson of ISCC says: “The Gut Week campaign is fantastic; ...  

Nintendo delays Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker till 2015, as financial results ...

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker – he won’t be so happy when he hears his game’s been delayed There’s still been no big turnaround in Nintendo’s fortunes as the company remains in the red despite nearly 3 million Mario Kart 8 sales. Although they seemed to turn a corner with the release of Mario Kart 8 and a very positive E3, Nintendo still made a loss during the three months between April and June. Sales were a healthy £431 million but there were no profits, only a £54 million loss. The spring months aren’t very important for any video games company, but it’s still disappointing considering that Mario Kart 8 sold 2.82 million within just a month after release. Nintendo’s research and development costs remain high though, as it invests in new console designs and its mysterious quality of life project, and as usual the yen exchange rate works against them but it’s all still a far cry from the glory days of the Wii. A total of 510,000 Wii U consoles were sold during the quarter, for an official worldwide total now of 6.68 million. That’s compared to around 5 million for the Xbox One and around 9 million for the PlayStation 4, after the Wii U had a year’s head start. A total of 4.39 million Wii U games were sold during the three months, with the 3DS selling 820,000 consoles and 8.57 million games. Despite the loss the results are actually relatively positive, at least compared to previous ...

Markets Are Down In Europe, But Up Everywhere Else

REUTERS/Thomas HodelEuropean markets are in the red early Wednesday. Here's the scorecard: Britain's FTSE 100 is down 0.20%. France's CAC 40 is down 0.51%. Germany's DAX is down 0.11%. Spain's IBEX is up 0.28%. Italy's FTSE MIB is down 0.10%.

U.S. futures are up with Dow futures up 19 points and S&P 500 futures up 3 points. Later today, we'll get the U.S. Q2 GDP report. "Following the first quarter’s surprising 2.9% decline in GDP, we are looking for a nice rebound in Q2," Wells Fargo's John Silvia said. "Perhaps even more notably, personal consumption expenditures grew at an initially reported 3.0% pace, but the figure was revised down to only 1.0%. While the decline in Q1 GDP was rather discouraging, economic indicators thus far in Q2 have been much more upbeat. While we still see net exports putting a drag on economic growth, inventory-building should provide a boost in Q2." At 2:00 p.m. ET, the Federal Reserve will publish its latest Federal Open Market Committee statement. Economists don't expect much, but they will be reading carefully for clues to when the Fed might start raising rates. ...  

Distressed woman traced by mobile phone signal following A303 RTC

Comments (0) A DISTRESSED woman whose car had rolled into a ditch on the A303 on had to be traced by her mobile phone signal as she had no idea where she was when she dialled 999. The woman’s vehicle left the A303 westbound between Wincanton and Sparkford at around 1.30pm on Tuesday. A fire service spokesman said: “As the caller was not local she did not have any idea of her location, and the car was well off the road so passing motorists could not see her. “The emergency operator stayed on the phone with her to reassure her and provide safety advice while her phone number was traced to ascertain a location. “Once we located her, fire crews from Wincanton, Castle Cary and Yeovil carried out casualty care while awaiting ambulance attendance.” ...  

Secret Cinema's Back to the Future to begin a week late

The screening location includes a replica of Hill Valley, the fictional town in which Back to the Future is set Secret Cinema's screenings of Back to the Future are to begin in London on Thursday, one week late. Organisers were forced to cancel the opening week of screenings because they could not meet technical requirements to satisfy local authorities. "We are extremely sorry for the delayed communications of last week," a Secret Cinema statement said. "We know we let our audience down and will do everything we can to make it up to them." Twitter user @AntipodeanMs posted an image appearing to show an unfinished clock tower on Friday For the event, Secret Cinema has built elaborate sets featuring replicas of buildings from the 1985 film and has planned live performances using around 80 actors. The series of screenings was due to begin on 24 July, but the first four nights were cancelled because "we weren't able to get to the position in which we were able to open with the local authorities happy", founder Fabien Riggall said. "Secret Cinema is a very different kind of experience to a normal concert or show, and it has taken longer to demonstrate to [the authorities] so they are happy," Mr Riggall told BBC News on Friday. Many fans were left angry by the short notice given for the initial cancellations. Audience members were told not to take their mobile phones, and so many complained that they did not find out about the cancellation until arriving at the venue....

Chelsea make £20million transfer offer for Atletico Madrid star Joao Miranda

Chelsea have made an offer to sign Joao Miranda (Picture: Getty) Chelsea have made a £20million offer for Atletico Madrid defender Joao Miranda and are hopeful of beating a host of teams to his signature. The 29-year-old was a crucial part of the Atletico team that won La Liga and got to the Champions League final last season. And now the Daily Express says that Jose Mourinho has been so impressed with him that he’s slapped in a £20million offer to bring him to Stamford Bridge. Miranda has a release clause set at £24million, but the Blues believe they will be able to lure him for a cut price. Jose Mourinho has moved for another centre back (Picture: Getty) Manchester United and Barcelona are also known to be keen on Miranda, but the Brazilian would arguably prefer the chance to link up with former team-mates Diego Costa and Felipe Luis at Chelsea. Mourinho had said last week that he’s not looking for any more new signings, but has since pounced for Didier Drogba and has been linked with a host of other targets.

Mao's Last Dancer Li Cunxin becomes mainstay of Brisbane's cultural scene

Queensland Ballet director Li Cunxin. Photo: Cameron Atfield There are few arrivals to Brisbane that have had the impact of Li Cunxin, the director of the Queensland Ballet. Perhaps better known as Mao’s Last Dancer, thanks to his autobiography and the movie of the same name, Li was a world-renowned ballet dancer prior to his arrival to Australia. Since then, Li has established himself as a mainstay of Brisbane’s cultural scene – and he couldn’t be happier calling Brisbane home. About China “I always find it to be very welcoming in Brisbane and Queensland in general,” he said. Advertisement “I find Queensland people very hospitable, they’re very generous and they’ve always treated me with utter respect because of what I have done in ballet. “Of course, having Mary’s (his wife's) family here has added to that welcome that I have received in Queensland.” Li Cunxin instructs dancers. Photo: Paul Harris “…It’s not a strange thing for me to now be settled in Brisbane because I’ve always felt this is a beautiful city and a beautiful state and the people here are very nice.” Li’s life story is well-documented. Raised in poverty near the Chinese city of Qingdao, he moved to Beijing at the age of 11 to study dancing at the Beijing Dance Academy. He arrived in Australia in 1995 to be principal dancer at the Australian Ballet. Queensland Ballet director Li Cunxi...
