With temperatures still sky high the hot weather seems to be making some of us quite sleepy. But don't worry, it's perfectly normal. In the midst of a heatwave set to last another month our bodies are working over-time to cool us down. But what steps can make to stay healthy while the hot weather lasts? The causes and cures to tiredness in the heat Sara Morgan is a lecturer in adult nursing at the University of South Wales. She said that people become tired because of added pressures on the body.

The report in the Journal Of Social And Personal Relationships by Jeffrey Hall, Associate Professor of Communication Studies at the University of Kansas, lays out the numbers for us.

A HOST OF Labour's local election candidates have been exposed as abusive racists, anti-Semites and homophobic bigots who share wild conspiracy theories online. The Sun has profiled a number of those standing in Thursday’s ballot who hold a range of vile views, from blaming Boris Johnson for the Salisbury attack to defending Syrian tyrant Assad and denying the Holocaust. So, would you vote for this lot? There are a number of other candidates under fire for revelations about their previous conduct. Pam Bromley, a Labour councillor on Rossendale borough council in Lancashire, was reported over a series of posts she made on Facebook. One, in April 2016, read: “Rothschilds are a powerful financial family (like the Medicis) and represent capitalism — even if the Nazis DID use the activities of Rothschilds in their antisemitic propaganda. “We must not obscure the truth with the need to be tactful.” She has since been suspended pending an investigation. Claire … [Read more...] about Labour local election candidates exposed as racists, bigots and fraudsters who share wild conspiracy theories
