WE all know that childhood obesity is an ever-growing concern, but how to combat it is a debate that rages. Should we force our kids to work out every day, or should we leave them alone and hope that they grow to love exercise and enjoy eating their greens? Well, scientists from the Universities of Edinburgh and Dundee insist that kids aren't doing enough exercise to fight the flab. According to new research, children should be encouraged to do strength-based exercises like squats, pushups and lunges.Kids need to fight obesity with bodyweight exercises Scientists examined the findings from 18 studies from eight countries that explored the effects of resistance training on body weight for kids aged eight to 16. They found it helped to decrease body fat, but had no real effect on lean muscle mass, body mass index or waist circumference.

On Wednesday afternoon at 3:15 p.m., Angela Merkel and Donald Trump sat down together as if nothing had happened. As if Trump hadn't started the day with a hate-filled tirade against Germany. As if he hadn't just lambasted the country as being a "captive of Russia" or said that "Germany is totally controlled by Russia." As if he hadn't spent days volleying salvoes at Germany on Twitter because the country still isn't doing what Trump, as the American president, wants it to be doing. As if he hasn't described the whole situation as being "not acceptable." There was nary a mention of these things in the meeting.

They have a "very, very good relationship," Trump said. By the time the two had sat down in their white armchairs, it was no longer about NATO or about the 2-percent defense spending target the White House has been … [Read more...] about Friendly Fire: Trump Takes Aim at Germany and NATO

The most Boris Johnson thing ever: Is booking a professional photographer to capture the moment you quit the Cabinet, just in time for the Telegraph splash. DRIVING THE DAY HOW IS IT ONLY TUESDAY? Theresa May’s new-look Cabinet meets in Downing Street this morning as questions swirl about her future as prime minister. No. 10 last night concluded a rapid-fire reshuffle, confirming the incendiary briefing to Playbook last week that a “full reshuffle plan” had been drawn up for the Chequers summit was no empty threat. Jeremy Hunt takes his place in one of the great offices of state (and is one step closer to No. 10); Matt Hancock and Dominic Raab have the big jobs they lusted after, and for some reason Jeremy Wright is now culture secretary. But the relative slickness of the Downing Street operation last night … [Read more...] about POLITICO London Playbook, presented by Airbus: New-look Cabinet meets — Merkel in town — Judge dread in D.C.
