Until it all changes one day..." She described the process of bringing this novel to fruition as "life changing."Unsurprisingly, her Insta is an appropriate mirror-themed snapshot,

one in six parents fear they will need kids to support them

One in six parents over the age of 40 worry they will need to ask their children to support them financially in retirement, a new study has found.Retirement income product provider MetLife found 16 per cent of over-40s "worry they will need to ask their offspring to bail them out… as they will not have saved enough for a comfortable retirement," says the Daily Mirror.That was around half of the proportion who said their "retirement saving is not on track".Parents may be falling short because they have dipped into their savings to give to their children, who are facing hefty costs for housing and education in particular, the Mirror adds.Even more people, 45 per cent of those surveyed, said they worried about the level of risk they will need to take to generate an adequate income in retireme

‘you scum’: why that cyclist-vs-sexism video went viral

Yesterday the media and Twitterati went wild for a video clip showing a female cyclist in London ripping the wing mirror off a van after its driver said sexist things to her. Filmed by the helmet cam of a man on a motorbike, the clip showed the foul-mouthed, common-sounding van man calling the woman an ‘old dog’ and asking her ‘You on your period?’ after they had some kind of road-space altercation. The woman furiously cycles after the van and when it comes to a standstill in a side street she yanks off its mirror. The motorbike guy then bellows at the men in the van: ‘You deserved that. YOU SCUM.’The video instantly went viral. It was viewed 10million times on Facebook. It was covered on newspaper websites. It was shared thousands of times on Twitter and other social media with air-punchi

EnlargeKeith AllisonShare this storyAT&T this week acknowledged that DirecTV has been charging the wrong regional sports fees to some customers and is now issuing bill credits to those who paid more because of the mistake."We have identified a small percentage of customers who are receiving some inaccurate bills for regional sports network fees," an AT&T spokesperson told Ars yesterday. "We are working as quickly as possible to notify those customers and issue credits.

Sports Direct’s decision to allow a worker representative to attend its board meetings has been dismissed by unions as a "PR exercise".

how youtube tv stacks up against directv now, playstation vue, and sling tv

Flickr: Rego Korosi Share this storyYouTube announced its long-rumored YouTube TV service last week, plunging the online video platform into the competitive world of live TV streaming. On the surface, the $35-per-month YouTube TV looks like a good deal: dozens of broadcast and cable channels (including numerous sports networks), a cloud-based DVR service, up to three simultaneous streams, and more. YouTube TV will launch sometime later this year, but there is already a lot of competition for the service. The biggest challengers—DirecTV Now, PlayStation Vue, and Sling TV—offer many similar features to YouTube TV, and that will undoubtably make it difficult for aspiring cord-cutters to know if they should wait for YouTube's service or take the plunge now.To aid in that decision, here's a bre

facing isolation in the sports world, putin vows to combat doping

During an organizing committee meeting for the 2019 University Games in Krasnoyarsk on Wednesday, President Vladimir Putin spoke of the need to eliminate doping from Russian sports. Interestingly, Putin has softened his tone. His address lacked the usual diatribe against an ill-defined world community, supposedly hell-bent on undermining the Russian people’s achievements. This barbed narrative had come to characterize his statements last summer, following the release of the McLaren report and the subsequent disqualification of Russian Paralympians. The president also acknowledged that systemic doping took place, previous Russian anti-doping systems had failed, and that Russia must uphold the World Anti-Doping Agency’s (WADA) standards. However, he continues to deny the existence of a “stat
