Movement and exercise is vital because of it’s far-reaching benefits on children’s health and development. The international study of 38 countries found that England, Scotland and Wales are among the worst for physical activity – far behind other countries such as China, Belgium and the United Arab Emirates. Commenting on the study experts warned that the results were extremely alarming, and suggested that we could conclude that movement was being “stripped out” of modern lifestyles, thanks to children spending hours on technology and being starved of outdoor activity.
A couple of years ago, everyone was talking about the new nail polish that claims to be able to detect the presence of date rape drugs in drinks. Looking just like any other nail varnish, Undercover Colors polishes change colour when dipped into a drink contaminated by substances associated with date rape such as Rohypnol, Xanax and GHB, warning the drinker if they’re in danger. The idea came from four male engineers who thought it up while studying at North Carolina State University.

Selfies have been getting a bad rep recently, with people saying that they’re ‘vain’, trigger low self esteem and are something that only ‘self-obsessed’ millennials like to do. The group was then randomly split into three, with one third being asked to take a smiling selfie at this time, another to take a picture of an object of place that made them happy, and the final group told to take a picture of something that would make someone else happy before sending it to the person. In other words, taking happy selfies is far from damaging for our self esteems - in fact, it probably makes us happier.
Everyone could use a more efficient wake-up call than the old-fashioned alarm clock, which is why there are plenty of novelty versions out there - from ones that split apart and you have to put back together in order to turn off, to ones that wake you with gradually-increasing light. It’s a vibrator combined with an alarm clock, and does exactly what it says on the tin. According to the Little Rooster Store website, it’ll help you wake “sexy”, “slowly” and “sensually”.
Michael Kors launched it’s new smart watch yesterday, and it’s pretty darn beautiful. The thing about the Michael Kors Access display smartwatch is that, unlike most smart watches, this looks and feels like a piece of jewellery.
Is it a mere craze and, a bit like Facebook or trendy facial hair, have we reached ‘peak Tinder’? Let’s get one thing straight – people haven’t stopped using Tinder. Singletons (and people in relationships, let’s be honest) are still swiping 1.4 billion times a day, and as dating expert and life coach Jo Barnett says, Tinder’s popularity has meant that online dating has never been more normal.
Ever been on a date with someone who can’t stop browsing Facebook, flicking through Snapchat or, God forbid, swiping on Tinder? Steve Tyler, who runs The Gin Tub in Hove, was sick of seeing people glued to their iPhones rather than having a chat, so he decided to use 19th century technology to make phones useless in his bar. Steve created a Faraday cage, a tin box that blocks electrical fields, invented in 1836 by physicist Michael Faraday.
I have a confession to make. I can’t work gyms. I’ve tried - more than once. The first time, I pressed lots of buttons on lots of different treadmills, Yes, including the ones marked ‘ON’. Nothing happened. Eventually, gathering up the tattered shreds of my dignity, I ran - right out the door.
I was sitting in a car a few weeks ago, snaking through New York City, squinting at a screen in front of me to read more about an eye product from StriVectin. In some ways, he told me, I was right to worry about what tech was doing to my skin.
