According to recent statistics one third of Brits now sleep for just five-to-six hours per night, which is significantly less than the standard seven-eight hours that experts recommend we need. A new study, published by the Rotterdam School of Management, has revealed that erratic and disruptive behaviour at work can be caused by just one night of poor ZZZs.

In a nutshell, diabetes is a lifelong condition that makes someone’s blood sugar levels become too high. And while you can live a relatively normal life with it, it’s much better to try and prevent it. There are two main types of diabetes – one and two.

The office Christmas parties should be a night of celebration, a time of togetherness. It should be the highlight of any social-professional calendar. But let’s face it: booze, banter and bosses can be a daunting combination. And while most people make it out alive—jollier, even— there’s always a few career casualties.
Nowadays, there are women in every profession: business, medicine, finance, you name it. There are female firemen, or should we say firefighters? And the same goes for police officers. There are even female construction workers. So why is it that when warning passers-by of construction, the sign says only: “Men Working”? You’ve never noticed that, have you? We hadn’t either, until Madonna pointed it out.
