Sir Keir Starmer appears to have swapped the cost-of-living crisis back home for his very own cost-of-fashion furore on his summer break. The Labour leader, who has denied being ‘missing in action’, was spotted in a Stone Island polo shirt costing £140-£150 on holiday in Majorca last week with wife Victoria and their two children. He seems to have a taste for the expensive Italian brand after being seen wearing its shirts in Edinburgh and Berlin recently.

From the centuries-old bridge opposite her home in the Hampshire village of Stoke Charity, Ruth Guy surveys the bare bones of the River Dever. Since July she has watched this precious chalk stream, a tributary of the River Test, dwindle to nothing but white rubble. When she first moved here 21 years ago, the 67-year-old tells me, the water was deep enough for her then 12-year-old son to paddle a canoe under the bridge. She points out the watermarks, which show how high it should run. Now only a smattering of aquatic plants – water mint and forget-me-not – are all that are left of this unique habitat (nearly 90 per cent of the world’s chalk streams are in England). Across the other side of the bridge the water has shrunk to a few turquoise pools skimmed by circling swallows. On recent evenings, Guy says, herons and egrets have gathered round for a “feeding frenzy” upon the last remaining fish unable to seek shelter. “This has never, ever, happened before,” she says. “Even apparently … [Read more...] about ‘Our chalk streams are rarer than the Brazilian rainforest yet we aren’t protecting them’
Natwest bank offers the attractive rate in an effort to help its customers kick start their saving habits. Britons can put as little as £1 in the account to open it and must commit to putting in an amount every calender month. People can also only put a maximum of £150 in the account every month.

If a person puts extra in they will have it automatically transferred back into their other account. If people continue to break this rule then Natwest will give them 60 days to close the account. However, a person’s monthly “round-ups” don’t count towards the £150 limit. This means people could put in extra if they wanted.

ANOTHER major supermarket has said that it will make a big change to a grocery staple. Aldi is the latest shop to ditch colour codes on milk packaging in a bid to help the environment. Instead of the traditional green lids on milk bottles that signal that you're buying semi-skimmed, the caps will be made of clear plastic. An initial trial of the new packaging, which is easier to recycle, will start next month at stores in Cheshire, Manchester and Liverpool. If it's successful it could be rolled to all of Aldi's 950 stores across the country. The move could save an extra 60 tonnes a year of recycled High-Density Polythene (rHDPE) going to waste.

THERE'S just days left for hundreds of thousands of retirees to get a cost of living payment worth up to £650. The cash is being dished out to help millions of people on low incomes struggling with rising bills . People on pension credit are among those on benefits getting the cash, and they have already been handed £326 into their bank account. You can't claim the cost of living payment directly, but you can still make a claim for pension credit that could make you eligible for the extra payment. Around 958,000 people on state pension and on a low income are missing out pension credit, which tops up weekly pension payments. A claim made before August 18 could be backdated up to three months, meaning if successful you could get the cost of living cash.

The UK could unseat top wine-producing regions Champagne and Burgundy in France due to the effects of climate change, according to a new study. The Climate Resilience in the UK Wine Sector study found that rising temperatures over the coming years could make Britain a major player in quality wine production. Looking at climate projections, researchers said temperatures in the UK wine-growing regions may rise by 1.4°C by 2040 -- on top of the one degree rise since the 1980s. This will mean the amount of sugar in UK grapes would be more consistent with better wine quality and higher alcohol content, they said. "Production here in the UK has been able to produce sparkling wines that are of a style that are very similar to those produced in Champagne," said lead researcher Professor Stephen Dorling. "The climate has been helping more and more to match that French production," he added. Researchers noted that the best regions to grow Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes … [Read more...] about UK to unseat Champagne wine production due to climate change, finds study
It wasn't just the wettest summer in decades and biting spring frosts that England's burgeoning sparkling wine industry had to deal with this year. Brexit has also cast a long shadow, whether it's labour shortages, missing shipments or bureaucratic headaches. The lack of staff has hit hard: winemakers say for the first time they have struggled to find enough pickers for harvest. Compounded by COVID restrictions, Brexit has led to a “sizable” reduction in the number of migrant labourers coming to England to pick grapes, according to Julia Trustram Eve, head of marketing at trade association WineGB. “It was the perfect storm,” she said. “Inevitably, an awful lot of migrant workers went back because of COVID, but they didn't return.” 'An absolute nightmare' Dermot Sugrue, a winemaker from West Sussex in southern England and credited with putting English sparkling wine on the map, agrees. “Brexit is arguably the biggest crisis this industry has faced,” he told … [Read more...] about A year since Brexit: English winemakers get creative to beat ‘nightmare’ labour shortages
A pesar de las reservas y la desconfianza inicial, la vacuna Sputnik V ya está en la mesa de la Agencia Europea de Medicamentos (AME). La vacuna rusa tuvo muy mala prensa en un primer momento, entre otras cosas por la rapidez con la que consiguieron producirla. Luego llegó la publicación de sus ensayos clínicos en la revista científica The Lancet, que mostraban buenos resultados de protección frente a la COVID-19. Después llegaron los problemas de producción y distribución que están ralentizando el proceso de vacunación en toda Europa. Hungría, Eslovaquia y pronto la República Checa decidieron comprar dosis de la vacuna rusa sin esperar ni a la AME ni al sistema de compras conjuntas de la Comisión Europea que ha provocado no pocos conflictos. La Agencia Europea del Medicamento examina la vacuna rusa Sputnik V para su aprobación en la UE La vacuna rusa es la primera en llegar a San Marino Ahora la AME podría aprobar su uso en la UE, aunque todavía … [Read more...] about ¿Qué ingredientes tiene la vacuna rusa Sputnik V que podría aprobarse en la Unión Europea?
