Sunak speaks with Zelensky, offering unwavering support to Ukraine

Well, it’s official – Rishi Sunak is the prime minister of Britain following an audience with King Charles the third at Buckingham Palace.

But there’s no time for celebrations.

The new PM has gone straight to work, holding a phone call with Ukraine’s Volodymyr Zelensky.

Promising the UK will continue its unwavering support for the war-torn country.

Zelensky congratulated the newly-appointed leader as they begin to “write a new chapter in their countries’ relations”.

Sunak has also begun reshuffling his cabinet, as UK residents feel the pinch of what is a “profound economic crisis”.

Jeremy Hunt will stay on as chancellor, a position he acquired after Kwasi Kwarteng’s disastrous mini-budget.

Suella Braverman will once again be home secretary just days after sensationally resigning from this very role.

Dominc Raab is deputy PM and justice secretary, while Michael Gove is levelling up secretary.

Grant Shapps is the new business secretary, with Sunak’s former leadership rival Penny Mordaunt staying on as leader of the House of Commons.

Britain gets new Prime Minister

Mistakes have been made

Speaking outside his new home, 10 Downing Street, Sunak paid tribute to his predecessor, Liz Truss, while also acknowledging mistakes have been made.

“Our country is facing a profound economic crisis. The aftermath of COVID still lingers. Putin’s war in Ukraine has destabilised energy markets and supply chains the world over,” Sunak said.

“I will place economic stability and confidence at the heart of this government’s agenda. This will mean difficult decisions to come.

“I want to pay tribute to my predecessor Liz Truss. She was not wrong to want to improve growth in this country. It is a noble aim. And I admired her restlessness to create change.

“But some mistakes were made — not born of ill will, or bad intentions. Quite the opposite, in fact. But mistakes, nonetheless. And I have been elected as leader of my party and your prime minister, in part to fix them.”

Boston Dynamics’ electric marvel or robot contortionist?

Published

on

Boston Dynamics has recently unveiled its latest creation, the electric Atlas robot, boasting enhanced agility and strength.

However, with its uncanny ability to contort and rise from the ground with an almost eerie grace, one might wonder if we’re witnessing the birth of the world’s first robot contortionist.

As this technological marvel flaunts its capabilities, one can’t help but ponder if we’re on the brink of a future where household chores will be effortlessly handled by robots moving like a fusion of ballet dancers and horror movie monsters.

With its cadaver-like movements and illuminated head, it’s hard not to speculate whether Atlas is destined to revolutionise robotics or simply rehearsing for a techno-horror rendition of The Nutcracker. As Boston Dynamics continues to push the boundaries of robotics, the line between science fiction and reality becomes increasingly blurred.

As the morning sun peeks through the curtains, many reach for that familiar brew, kickstarting their day with a comforting cup of coffee.

It’s a ritual ingrained in cultures worldwide, offering a jolt of energy to combat the grogginess of dawn.

But when is the optimal time for that caffeine fix? According to registered dietitian Anthony DiMarino, RD, LD, the answer isn’t crystal clear.

Some experts suggest delaying that first sip until mid-morning or later. However, DiMarino reassures coffee lovers that there’s no one-size-fits-all answer to this dilemma.

Meanwhile, the science behind coffee production unveils fascinating insights into its instant variant. Whether produced through freeze-drying or spray-drying methods, instant coffee offers convenience without sacrificing flavor.

Yet, beyond convenience, recent studies delve deeper into coffee’s impact on our bodies. Research exploring the acute effects of decaffeinated versus caffeinated coffee reveals intriguing findings on reaction time, mood, and skeletal muscle strength.

Moreover, investigations into the gut microbiome shed light on coffee’s influence on liver cirrhosis patients. A study analyzing the duodenal microbiome in this population found correlations between coffee consumption and microbial richness and evenness.

So, as you sip your coffee and ponder the day ahead, consider not just the flavour in your cup but also the subtle impacts it may have on your body and mind.
