When my brother was born with a significant physical disability, osteogenesis imperfecta, the world changed. Growing up, I knew that things would be okay, thanks to my parents, and thanks to the help of family and friends. The memory that comes to my mind around Christmas is a tradition my mother put together, one I doubt would work today. We, as a family, would go to a local store and buy two gifts: a gift for a boy and a gift for a girl. We’d wrap them and put them inside a box. We would then write a letter that read: “Dear Mr. Postmaster, please give these gifts to a boy and girl...
    Ichiro Suzuki surprised Daisuke Matsuzaka in an emotional moment at his retirement ceremony in Japan. After over two decades of professional baseball, star pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka is leaving the mound for good. Matsuzaka’s career began with the Seibu Lions of Nippon Professional Baseball in 1999. In 2006, he was posted for MLB, and the Boston Red Sox outbid all other suitors. He pitched for them from 2007-2012, then joined the New York Mets (who had courted him during his posting) from 2013-2014. Matsuzaka returned to Japan in 2015 and spent the remaining years of his career with the Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks, Chunichi Dragons, and finally, came full circle to retire with the Lions, back where it all began. The star pitcher compiled an astounding resumé over the years. With Nippon, he was Rookie of the Year, a three-time win leader, four-time strikeout leader, two-time ERA leader, seven-time All-Star, and seven-time Gold Glove winner. He also pitched for two Japan Series champion teams in 2004 and 2017. In MLB, the pitcher known as Dice-K was part of the 2007 Red Sox championship...

    MOULD in the home is not only unsightly, but can damage your health. The toxic fuzz is a nightmare for some homeowners who can’t shift it no matter how hard they try. 1Mould in the homeCredit: Getty But banishing it from the home should be a priority, experts say, especially if there are babies, children, elderly people or with existing health conditions in the house. A damp home is the perfect environment for mould to grow on the walls and surfaces. Damp is commonly caused by humidity, which can occur for many reasons, from weeks of rain outside to constantly having clothes washing, cooking or clothes drying in the home. It’s also a result of condensation, particularly in the bathroom, or weaknesses in the home’s infrastructure, such as a leak or lack of insulation or ventilation.  Mould appears slowly as black, white or green patches on the walls, ceilings or tiles. It might smell damp and musty, making the home uncomfortable. Government data says an average of three per cent of households in England had damp in at least one...
    FOR those that struggle to see results on the toilet, it may be down to your position. Giulia Guerrini, the lead pharmacist at digital pharmacy medino.com, has offered her top tips for the best way to sit on the toilet - and the results might surprise you. 1If a stool was added for the feet to rest on, this would be the perfect position for sitting on the toiletCredit: Getty "Sitting in the wrong position can have an impact: our gut is not designed to completely open the hatch when we are in a seated position (or standing), which means that our faeces hit a corner (thank god or it would be a disaster)," she explained to the Express.co.uk. "Squatting has always been the preferable position as it helps the muscles relax and straighten the faeces exit pathway." In fact, in countries where a throne chair is used for people to sit on while on the toilet, diverticulitis, haemorrhoids and constipation are the most common. And while squatting is the optimum position for your toilet habits, you...

Today, we have the fastest booster rollout too. 3Jabs Army's been brilliant for Britain but we need you again, writes Boris Johnson And be in no doubt, the fantastic volunteers of The Sun’s Jabs Army made an enormous difference in helping the UK achieve this feat. Now my message is simple: We need you again. We still don’t know exactly what we’re facing with this Omicron variant. But we do know that our single best defence against Omicron — and every other variety of Covid — is getting vaccinated and getting boosted. If you’ve had a booster then your immune response will be stronger and you’ll be better protected. So it’s great news that almost 18million Brits have already had their boosters — and I’m proud to say I’ll be getting mine later this week. But we have to stay one step ahead of this virus, and that means getting even more jabs into even more arms even more quickly....

    By MARIA CHENG LONDON (AP) — South African scientists identified a new version of the coronavirus this week that they say is behind a recent spike in COVID-19 infections in Gauteng, the country’s most populous province. It’s unclear where the new variant actually arose, but it was first detected by scientists in South Africa and has now been seen in travelers to Belgium, Botswana, Hong Kong and Israel. Health Minister Joe Phaahla said the variant was linked to an “exponential rise” of cases in the last few days, although experts are still trying to determine if the new variant, named B.1.1.529, is actually responsible. From just over 200 new confirmed cases per day in recent weeks, South Africa saw the number of new daily cases rocket to 2,465 on Thursday. Struggling to explain the sudden rise in cases, scientists studied virus samples from the outbreak and discovered the new variant. On Friday, the World Health Organization was convening a group of experts to assess the data from South Africa. WHY ARE SCIENTISTS WORRIED ABOUT THIS NEW VARIANT? It appears to have...

After the Bears’ fifth straight loss Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens, their short week to get ready for the Lions was disrupted by a report that the Bears planned to fire coach Matt Nagy after the Thanksgiving game.

Dalton will start in place of Justin Fields, who is recovering from a ribs injury he suffered during the game against the Ravens. Meanwhile, the 0-9-1 Lions will try for their first win of the season behind quarterback Jared Goff, who recovered from an oblique injury and is expected to start, according to NFL Network.
