    A WIFE who thought she'd never have kids after her shock diagnosis has told of her joy now she has THREE. Kristie Sicolo, 35, struggled to get pregnant and went to see her GP for advice. 3Kristie Sicolo, 35, struggled to get pregnant. Now she has three kids with husband OliCredit: Kristie Sicolo 3Now the couple have Arthur, two, and twins Imelda and NoahCredit: Kristie Sicolo There, she was diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) - a condition that affects how a woman's ovaries function. It occurs when the sacs the ovaries sit in are unable to release an egg, which means ovulation doesn't happen. The condition - which affects one in five women - often makes it extremely difficult to fall pregnant. Now, Kristie and her husband Oli Dickson, 33 - from Wallingford, Oxfordshire - are telling their story in a bid to inspire those who have also struggled. Kristie told the Mirror: "I didn't realise there would be any fertility issues until my formal diagnosis in 2016. "Alarm bells started ringing and I was in panic mode, we...
    In this article STAN-GBFossil fuels are ingrained in the global energy mix and companies continue to discover and develop oil and gas fields at locations around the world.Imaginima | E+ | Getty ImagesLONDON — The CEO of Standard Chartered believes it's "ridiculous and naive" to think fossil fuel production can be immediately halted without any consequences, stating that while it might be good for the climate, it would have other negative effects.   In comments made during an interview with CNBC's Geoff Cutmore at the City Week forum in London on Monday, Bill Winters acknowledged most people would subscribe to what he called a "just transition." "Those are two really important words … just means fair, it also means implementable," he said. "And transition means transition — it means it takes some time." "The idea that we can turn off the taps and end fossil fuels tomorrow, it's obviously ridiculous and naive," Winters said. "Well, first of all, it's not going to happen and secondly, it would be very disruptive." It would be good for climate change, Winters went on...
    FOR some time I’ve thought that the NHS doesn’t really work any more, but of course I could never say that out loud because the NHS is a deity.  It’d be like suggesting we’ve had enough of Sir Attenborough or the baby Jesus. 6Back in the 60s, when the NHS was not offering the more than 2,000 costly surgeries currently available for freeCredit: Times Newspapers Ltd Things reached a peak in the pandemic.  I could see perfectly well that the healthcare systems in other countries were doing a far better job but still I didn’t dare say anything. Not that you’d have heard me over the racket caused by people in the street clapping and banging saucepans together and cheerily hanging NHS rainbow flags in the window. Now, though, it’s like everyone is coming to their senses. I’m starting to hear criticism of the NHS all the time.

    WE'RE the first person to admit that our kids are no angels - but whenever we pick them up from school, the teachers always speak of their behaviour that day in very vague terms. In other words, there's definitely something they're not telling us. 1Chelsey's video racked up over 70,000 viewsCredit: TikTok/@chel.ssey Feel our pain?

In a viral TikTok video that's racked up over 71,000 views, the social media star revealed what the "code words" they say to parents REALLY mean.

    FOR THOSE people that have an ex-partner, it’s quite difficult to imagine what it would be like living next to them. While some people may choose to remain civil with an ex, for many of us, when we split up with a partner, we will never see them again. 2A woman has taken to Reddit to share her unique living situation that her boyfriend is not pleased aboutCredit: Shutterstock But one woman has taken to Reddit to explain her unique situation with her ex and it’s one that many of us could never imagine.  The anonymous woman explained that she and her ex-husband decided to remain close after their divorce, but you won’t believe just how close.

    CNN anchor John Berman expressed alarm that a third of Americans don’t know what the word “antisemitism” means, and offered a stark suggestion to remedy that. On Tuesday morning’s edition of CNN’s New Day, Berman hosted Holly Huffnagle — the American Jewish Committee’s U.S. Director for Combating Antisemitism — to talk about the Nazi demonstrations in Florida over the weekend, and the growing tide of antisemitism and White Supremacy it illustrates. “You’ve been tracking what’s going on for the last few weeks and you say this is basically now just a daily occurrence,” Berman told Huffnagle. Huffnagle agreed, noting that “there were neo-Nazis waving flags and in Florida, there were synagogues defaced an in Chicago, right here in Washington, D.C., where I am based, there are Nazi swastikas on Union Station. There have been Jewish children spat on in New York, and of course, just a couple of weeks ago, the horrific hostage situation in Collierville, Texas. But this is part of a larger picture over the last few years here in America.” Berman then asked about some disturbing results from...
    (CNN)As the US nears the start of a third year of the pandemic, many Americans are wondering when the ever-present disruptions Covid-19 has posed will diminish for good. But Dr. Anthony Fauci has cautioned that despite Omicron appearing to have less severe health implications, it's too early to predict whether we're approaching the endemic stage of when a virus becomes more manageable."When you talk about whether or not Omicron -- because it's a highly transmissible, but apparently not as pathogenic, for example, as Delta -- I would hope that that's the case," the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases said Monday.The Omicron surge hasnt peaked nationwide, and the next few weeks will be tough, US surgeon general says"But that would only be the case if we don't get another variant that eludes the immune response to the prior variant," Fauci told the Davos Agenda, a virtual event being held this week by the World Economic Forum.A disease that is endemic has a constant presence in a population but is not affecting an alarmingly large number of...
    (CNN)Since the start of the pandemic, scientists have been seeking to better understand immunity to the novel coronavirus. How long is a person immune after having Covid-19, after getting vaccinated, or both? And what could long-lasting immunity mean for booster shots?It's still too early to tell -- but experts are getting closer to cracking the code.Covid-19 vaccine boosters may be necessary. Heres what you need to knowThe current wisdom around potential coronavirus vaccine boosters suggests they may be needed at some point -- but exactly when is unclear, Dr. Peter Marks, director of the US Food and Drug Administration's Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, said on Thursday during a Covid-19 Vaccine Education and Equity Project webinar."We'll have to see where this all interacts. Is it possible we're going to need a booster at some point? Yes. Is it probable? Yes. Do we know exactly when? No," Marks said. "But if I had to look at my crystal ball, it's probably not sooner, hopefully, than a year after being vaccinated, for the average adult."And, experts emphasize, anyone who is fully...
    Many of us long to see our loved ones, and millions won't have had so much as a hug from a friend or family member in months — so the first thing you may want when you reunite is to embrace. Yet, in a recent poll 59 per cent of people questioned said they would no longer greet others with a kiss, a hug, or even a handshake in future, for fear of spreading germs. While such strategies may help cut the risk of catching coronavirus, science tells us a lack of physical contact may have knock-on implications for our health — and may even make us more likely to pick up infections. A survey from early last year shows how much our attitude to human contact has changed since the pandemic. Conducted between January 21 and March 30 (covering the nine weeks before, and a week into the first lockdown), it found that 72 per cent of people had a positive attitude toward touch and 43 per cent felt society was not 'touchy' enough — even before restrictions were...
    Pianist Allen Toussaint was already holed up in New York City on September 21, 2005—driven from New Orleans by the flood resulting from the levee failures following Hurricane Katrina—when he sat down at the piano of Manhattan’s Avatar Studios to record “Yes We Can Can.” Toussaint—the composer, arranger, and producer of hits spanning generations and genres, who died in 2015—wrote that song in 1970 for singer Lee Dorsey, as a message of hope and a call for communal action to heal societal ills. (The Pointer Sisters scored big with it a few years later). He had never recorded it himself, a fact he wasn’t likely thinking about. Just then, he simply wanted to return home, and to help his hometown heal. The version Toussaint sang and played that day in 2005, tender and yet with a funky urgency, became the opening track of Our New Orleans, a lovingly if hastily assembled collection of then-new tracks from celebrated Crescent City musicians such as Dr. John and Irma Thomas, and lesser-known local heroes like pianists Eddie Bo and Davell Crawford. At the...
    The patient leaflet that comes with your medication provides important, if alarming, information about potential side-effects.  But knowledge is one thing, worrying that you’ll experience the side-effects is another — and could, research suggests, make it more likely to happen. This is what’s known as the ‘nocebo effect’. We’ve all heard of the placebo effect, and this is its troublesome and lesser-known twin. With the placebo effect, the simple belief that a tablet will help leads to patients feeling better — even if it is only a sugar pill. But, as a study on statins by Imperial College London showed last month, the opposite can also occur. That is, if we expect a tablet to make us feel ill and cause side-effects, it may well do so even if it is only a fake pill. Knowledge is one thing, worrying that you’ll experience the side-effects is another — and could, research suggests, make it more likely to happen This is the nocebo effect and more and more research suggests the phenomenon can lead to patients stopping taking statins, cancer...
    REUTERS/Jonathan ErnstSenate Majority Leader Mitch McConnellThe Grim Reaper of the U.S. Senate, Mitch McConnell, should relinquish his leadership role. He has failed to support the Constitution, the rule of law and the best interests of our country. He has tarnished the reputation of the Senate, wreaked havoc on our civil society and diminished the credibility of an institution I cherish — our courts. Americans believe in the rule of law. We have a deeply embedded commitment to honor and uphold our Constitution. McConnell has failed to uphold these historic ideals. He promotes policies and person(s) that diminish our valued traditions. His lack of integrity, his hypocrisy and his inability to be candid constitute an amoral abuse of power. He appears to have lost his soul when, as a nation, we are engaged in a struggle to preserve ours.  Nicknames capture some of McConnell’s shortcomings. Three readily come to mind: The Grim Reaper, Moscow Mitch and Rich Mitch. McConnell has embraced the title Grim Reaper. He brags about killing legislation passed by the House. He thwarts efforts to extend an economic...
