Supermarkets are misleading customers by providing mixed messages over how long food can be kept once opened, according to the Women's Institute. This is leaving consumers confused as to how long they have to use a product at home, potentially encouraging them to "needlessly" throw edible produce in the bin. In one case, Sainsbury’s own brand sweetcorn required consumers to eat it within one day of opening, whilst a seemingly identical tin of sweetcorn from Waitrose gave consumers two days to finish the tin.

Women in America have some new research to back up claims many have long made: Females in the workplace are often asked to do more than their male counterparts—and all so they can end up bringing home less bacon at the end of the day. Data from more than 140 universities show evidence that female faculty members “perform significantly more service than men” across campuses nationwide, according to a study published this month in Research in Higher Education. "We tend to see female faculty members usually take on the nurturing tasks for undergraduate students," Amy Quinn, an adjunct professor at Rowan University in Philadelphia, tells Newsweek.

After a detailed study, they discovered that two forces act like invisible fingers, first loosening the knot and then tugging until laces are left trailing on the ground. It was found that the running foot exerts a force seven times greater when landing on the ground than the one exerted while standing, forcing the knot tying the laces to stretch and relax, loosening it slightly. At the same time, as the knot loosens, the swinging of the laces that occurs as the leg moves forwards and backwards causes an inertial force to be applied on the free ends of the laces, pulling the already-loosened knot apart.
The founder of fintech firm Transferwise said if it was starting again it would not set up in Britain - because of Brexit uncertainty.

The new Duke of Westminster has entered into a fierce row with Army reservists over the decision to evict them from their headquarters amid plans to build a luxury hotel in its place. For more than 140 years, riflemen have been stationed in The Rifles Club, a plush headquarters in the heart of Mayfair, opened by the 1st Duke in 1890.
