News / UK and world by Press Association April 29, 2019, 7:07 am Send us a story Sign up to our Daily newsletter Pills that expand in the stomach could provide doctors with an effective new tool for the fight against obesity. The capsules, taken with water before lunch and dinner, mix with food and liquid to create a gel-like mass that gives a feeling of fullness despite eating smaller portions. Scientists behind the innovation say the pills are made from the “naturally derived building blocks” cellulose and citric acid. Classed as a medical device rather than a drug, the treatment does not have the side-effects associated with weight-loss aids that rely on stimulants. Harry Leider, chief medical officer of the manufacturer Gelesis, told The Times: “We are really optimistic that millions of people will benefit. “There really is an unmet need for new treatments that are effective for the majority and are really well tolerated.” … [Read more...] about Capsules that expand in stomach could help with weight loss
U.S. President Donald Trump speaks during the "White House Opportunity and Revitalization Council" meeting in the Cabinet room at the White House in Washington, U.S., April 4, 2019. REUTERS/Kevin Lamarque WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump threatened on Thursday to put tariffs on cars coming from Mexico into the United States if Mexico does not continue to help Washington deal with the immigration and drug situation along the southern U.S. border. Trump told reporters at the White House he would put tariffs on cars or close the border, but he said he may start with the tariffs. He also said he would give Mexico a year to try to stop the flow of drugs before putting tariffs in place. “A lot of good things are happening with Mexico. Mexico understands that we’re going to close the border, or I’m going to tariff the cars,” Trump told reporters at the White House. Trump said he would “probably start off with the tariffs - that will be a very … [Read more...] about Trump threatens tariffs if Mexico does not help with immigration,…
UKRAINE-Russian relations have been tense at the best of times but they bubbled to the surface recently when naval forces from Russia captured three Ukranian vessels. We look what the disputes are over and why Russia prizes Ukraine so highly. What does Russia want with Ukraine? The two countries have been intertwined for more than 1,000 years, not all of it peaceful by any means. Russia sees the Ukraine as highly strategic – due to Ukraine’s coast it gives Russian ships access to the Black Sea and a warm water port along its Western borders. It is also important for Russia as it tries to hang on to its “sphere of influence” with countries on its Western borders after the collapse of the Soviet Union and many of its former satellite countries allying themselves with the West in general and the European Union specifically. Ukraine is also strategic for transit routes for its natural gas pipelines to the west. Losing control of the country would mean losing control … [Read more...] about What does Russia want with Ukraine, what is their history together and what happened in Crimea?
A FAMILY are having to live with a sink hole in their living room - and its filling with water every day. Alison Evans, 51, from Trebanog in Perth, Wales, even has to pop home during work hours to pump water out of the hole so it does not flood the £80,000 home. And despite asking the water company, council and builders what the source of the water is, no one has managed to come up with an answer. She said: "The hole has been there from the start of the year. I go to work and I don't know if there'll be water all through the house. "I have tried everything - the insurance won't pay out until they know where the water is coming from. No one knows where it's coming from." As a result of the sinkhole, she has been forced to live in other rooms - and move all her furniture elsewhere. Mrs Evans, who works in a factory, first realised there was an issue when she saw water coming from the ground. A hole had to be dug to try and find the source of the water. She said: "There are days I … [Read more...] about Couple left with SINK HOLE in family home that keeps filling up with water
