In this article, we’re going to discuss the etiquette, norms and psychology of wearing stockings and suspenders when rock and roll dancing, or jiving in the 2020s.
If you are one of a couple who goes rock and roll dancing or jiving, this is something that couples often want to discuss. Women often like to dress up in period or vintage-style costumes when going jiving, and that can often include stockings, hold-ups or tights. But ladies, do you want to flash your stocking tops when dancing? Some do, and some don’t.… Click here to continue reading this article
In the excellent article below, Matthew Syed discusses if we are lost in a sea of data online and if the truth is lost in a sea of irrelevance. This article first appeared in the SundayTimes.
We’ve never had so much information at our fingertips — and so little wisdom to do anything useful with it
In the time it takes you to reach the end of this paragraph, 15 million emails will have been sent, 30,000 tweets and three million Facebook updates. Meanwhile, tens of thousands of blogs, Instagram posts and news articles will have been added to a running total measured in billions.… Click here to continue reading this article
Many only know him from Top Gear, Grand Tour, or Clarkson’s Farm, but in fact, he cut his teeth as a writer. He writes for the Sunday Times, The Sun and has written many books (many of which are just his newspaper articles republished together – but still worth reading twice).… Click here to continue reading this article
So You Want To Learn Rock and Roll Dancing in Manchester?
So did we, and miraculously, the options are few and far between. But there is one, and we’ll direct you to it. But first, let’s discuss Rock and Roll dancing generally and what you are likely to encounter if you want to learn in Manchester, Stockport or Lancashire.
You’d think a city as large as Manchester would be bristling with options to learn Rock and Roll dancing, but a quick delve onto Google not only shows you there are relatively few options, but the information it delivers isn’t terribly relevant.… Click here to continue reading this article
In June 2020 I went to the local farm shop to buy my vegetables for the coming fortnight. I was not allowed inside the shop — instead a table had been set up outside with the instruction that I was to keep one metre away from it. You told the shop assistants what you wanted and they went and fetched it for you. Handing the stuff over was difficult because of that one-metre rule. You kind of had to lean forward, and on one occasion I fell over.… Click here to continue reading this article
We call Sebo “the best vacuum cleaner brand you have never heard of” (as they don’t advertise very much anywhere – they seem to think you must “discover” them). You will only find them at John Lewis and independent vacuum dealers like the Sebo Shop at Manchester Vacs (and they are cheaper than John Lewis).
Sebo produces a range of upright and cylinder vacuum cleaners for domestic and commercial use. Sebo vacuum cleaners are endorsed by Allergy UK (the British Allergy Foundation), recommended by Which?… Click here to continue reading this article
If you want to buy a UK specification combined 30mph and speed camera sign, we can point you to it.
On its own, a 30mph sign is of limited effect. Similarly, on its own, a camera sign is of limited effect. However, put the two together and psychologists say that the combined effect is a more effective call to action in the brain. That is why local authorities have started using the combined speed limit and camera sign.
Russia and much of the world have been seeking to dedollarise for a while. In the wake of the Russian military operation in Ukraine, one of the outcomes of countersanctions by Russia against the US and the rest of the west is them being forced to use the Russian Rouble to buy oil and gas.
This does something Russia has wanted to do for a while: reduce US dollar hegemony.
The first sufferer is now free of the genetic form of the disease thanks to the work of Doug Melton, a US scientist inspired by his baby son’s illness.
When Doug Melton set out to cure type 1 diabetes, it is fair to say he underestimated the scale of the task.
It was 1991 and his six-month-old son Sam had just been diagnosed with the autoimmune condition. The symptoms were terrifying: the tiny baby shaking and vomiting until he was given the insulin that would save his life.… Click here to continue reading this article
Первый пациент теперь свободен от генетической формы болезни благодаря работе Дуга Мелтона, американского ученого, вдохновленного болезнью своего маленького сына.
Когда Дуг Мелтон намеревался вылечить диабет 1 типа, справедливо сказать, что он недооценил масштаб задачи.
Это был 1991 год, и его шестимесячному сыну Сэму только что диагностировали аутоиммунное заболевание. Симптомы были ужасающими: крошечный ребенок трясся и рвался, пока ему не дали инсулин, который спас бы его жизнь. Но даже после лечения последствия были резкими – анализы крови четыре раза в день, регулярные инъекции инсулина и надвигающаяся угроза потери зрения, проблем с почками и сердечных заболеваний.… Click here to continue reading this article
It was yet another dreadful week for the constabulary. Mainly, this was because an on-duty policeman woman was captured on film fist-bumping the sky and generally letting anti-Israel protesters in London know that she was very much on their side.
We’ve become used to this sort of thing at the Notting Hill carnival, where officers are urged to dispense with Dixon’s teachings from Dock Green and twerk the night away with revellers before settling down with a can of chilled Red Stripe and a nice spliff.… Click here to continue reading this article
To placate the angry, vocal few, one sex is being written out of the lexicon. It must stop.
When designing the constitution, America’s founders feared democracy’s natural pitfall: the tyranny of the majority. They were leery of the ignorant masses and, originally, voting was largely restricted to landowners. But a competing danger — the tyranny of the minority — is arguably worse. At least when majorities tyrannise, a large number of people get what they want.
The era of free speech online is over. The indefinite suspension of Donald Trump’s Twitter account, following his suspension from Facebook, is a profound moment from which there is no going back. The tech giants have essentially asserted their right to police democratic politics, even to censor democratically elected presidents, depriving Trump of the primary means by which he addresses the American public.
Bang & Olufsen Speakers: Where to Get Screw in Feet. If you’ve bought yourself a previously enjoyed pair of Bang & Olufsen BeoLab 8000 or similar B&O speakers, you may well find that on the bottom of them are four screw-in spikes on each corner of the speaker base.
The spikes are designed for when the speakers are sitting on the carpet in order that they can penetrate through the carpet and make contact with the floorboards below so the speakers are firmly grounded.
Western media’s repeated blunders in reporting on North Korea show its continuing lack of understanding and expertise.
After 20 days of absence, proof of life for North Korea’s Kim Jong Un finally came on May 2. North Korean state media released images of the leader touring a fertiliser factory. Contrary to mounting speculation by much of the international media and many so-called North Korea watchers, Kim was clearly not on his deathbed.
Western journalists are not always adept at covering this reclusive country, but the latest fiasco surrounding Kim’s supposedly imminent demise proved just how eager they are to accept unconfirmed rumours as objective news and how poorly they judge information about North Korea.… Click here to continue reading this article
Some will remember the Muslim apologists were falling over themselves telling us that Muslim lifestyles had no bearing on spread of the virus, and it was waaaaaysist to even think so. The fact that it has been rampant in Muslim communities was just coincidence of course.
Much of Manchester and the surrounding regions – along with other places – is supposedly “locked down” again. The announcement came one day before Muslim Xmas (Eid) a few days ago (where they all mingle in hordes). This time the government touched on the issue but telling it like it is, is still beyond them (coz waaaaaysist etc).… Click here to continue reading this article
Not wearing one should be seen as antisocial, says top scientist
No one should leave home without a facemask and wearing one should be considered as crucial as handwashing and social distancing, according to the president of Britain’s leading scientific body.
Venki Ramakrishnan, who heads the Royal Society and holds a Nobel prize in chemistry, made the comments as he released a report showing that despite the growing evidence masks slow virus transmission, the UK is among the worst for wearing them.
