This question was sent to me yesterday by a reader suffering with knee pain: “Paul, I’ve suffered on-off type knee pain now for more than a year. What I can’t put my finger on is when it started or why, and more confusing is that my pain gets worse as the day goes on. But whenever I wake up, the pain is gone – or is considerably less. Yet, by the end of another day, my knee aches, sometimes feels hot and swollen and I’m often in considerable pain – especially if I’ve been out for a long walk with the dog. Any ideas?”Beverly, Seaton.What’s happening here is likely to be a simple case of the muscles around Beverly’s knee joint being ‘weak’. As in, the muscles just aren’t strong enough to last through the day or cope with what she wants her body to do and where she wants to go.Think of it like this: when you go to bed at night and are ready to sleep – your body is obviously tired from all of the energy … [Read more...] about Why knee pain can get worse at night

The trash situation in outer space caused by launches and defunct satellites is "getting worse" and risks making space off-limits for future generations, according to the European Space Agency's (ESA) chief space debris expert. "We are adding more than the atmosphere can remove," Holger Krag, head of ESA's Space Debris Office, told EUobserver in an interview. "There have been several attempts to provide an international space law that has … requirements in there but this wasn't successful so far," he said, almost a decade after the European Union began an attempt to establish international rules on space debris. ESA defines space debris as "all non-functional, human-made objects, including fragments and elements thereof, in Earth orbit or re-entering into Earth's atmosphere". According to estimates, there are some 29,000 debris objects larger than 10 centimetres; 750,000 objects between 1cm and 10cm; and 166m objects smaller than 1cm. When colliding, they could also break up … [Read more...] about [Interview] Europe’s space trash chief: situation getting worse

By Ann O'Loughlin[/ib]The new President of the Court of Appeal has warned waiting times of at least 22 months for appeal hearings will get worse and that more hearing dates may be cancelled unless new judges are appointed urgently.Because the appeal court is still struggling to dispose of hundreds of appeals inherited from the Supreme Court, plus its own mounting caseload of appeals, the case for substantially increasing the number of judges is "compelling", Mr Justice George Birmingham (pictured) said. He was faced with an "immediate crisis" arising from the fact two of the court's ten judges retired this year and have not been replaced while three more judges are to retire or take up different positions later this year.In the circumstances, he had no choice but to cancel hearing dates fixed next week for certain appeals, he said. He very much hoped there would soon be judges appointed to the court so the number of cases that will have to be taken out and rescheduled would be reduced, … [Read more...] about Waiting times at Court of Appeal will get worse unless new judges are appointed urgently
