Where in Britain drinks the most tea and eats the most biscuits?

first_imgEveryone loves a cuppa, but perhaps not as much as we used to.The nation is drinking less tea, causing sales to drop, although we are still necking 76m kg of the stuff every year – that’s the equivalent of each person in the UK downing 460 cups, according to research from Mintel.  So it’s safe to say that while Britain may already have passed peak tea, we’re hardly ready to give it up anytime soon. And it’s the folk of Yorkshire who are leading the way as Britain’s biggest tea drinkers.Read more: Here’s how to make the perfect cup of teaSome 80 per cent of those living in the area, which boasts several famous tea rooms and its own brew, have had at least one cup of tea in the last month. The Welsh are not far behind, with 78 per cent saying the same, leaving the more tepid tea fans of the east Midlands trailing with just 71 per cent.[infographic id=”275″]When it comes to biscuit eating – the perfect accompaniment to a good cuppa – it’s the Welsh who are doing the most dunking, along with those in the East Midlands: in both regions,more than 90 per cent say they’ve enjoyed a tasty biscuit break such as a classic chocolate digestive, rich tea, or cookie in the last three months.[infographic id=”276″]Nearly half of biscuit eaters enjoy them with a cuppa, but sales of the sugary treats are falling too. Each person in the UK eats the equivalent of around 30 packets of rich tea every year. That’s five less than we scoffed back in 2009. At least it’s good for the nation’s waistline… Share Monday 10 August 2015 10:22 am by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSwift VerdictChrissy Metz, 39, Shows Off Massive Weight Loss In Fierce New PhotoSwift VerdictMaternity WeekA Letter From The Devil Written By A Possessed Nun In 1676 Has Been TranslatedMaternity WeekPost FunKate & Meghan Are Very Different Mothers, These Photos Prove ItPost FunGameday NewsNBA Wife Turns Heads Wherever She GoesGameday Newszenherald.comMeghan Markle Changed This Major Detail On Archies Birth Certificatezenherald.comEquity MirrorThey Drained Niagara Falls — They Weren’t Prepared For This Sickening DiscoveryEquity MirrorTheFashionBallAlica Schmidt Is The Most Beautiful Athlete To ExistTheFashionBallLearn It WiseAfter Losing 70lbs Susan Boyle Is So Skinny Now She Looks Like A ModelLearn It Wise whatsapp Tags: NULLcenter_img More From Our Partners Florida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgWhite House Again Downplays Fourth Possible Coronvirus Checkvaluewalk.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgInstitutional Investors Turn To Options to Bet Against AMCvaluewalk.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.org‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.org Where in Britain drinks the most tea and eats the most biscuits?

Fr Paddy: The Weight of the Glass

first_imgHome Columnists Fr Paddy: The Weight of the Glass Columnists Pinterest TAGSFr Paddy Byrne New Arles road opens but disquiet over who was invited to official opening Community The Art of Letting Go is about deciding to stop making the same mistakes and choosing to take a different path. It has been said that insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. I totally agree. When we hold onto things that weigh us down, that negativity turns into baggage. The more baggage you have, the more it clouds your view and the more you feel like carrying that baggage around is the only way to live.Your baggage-cluttered perspective becomes the viewpoint from which you see the world.But how can you have a positive outlook when all you see is negativity? The truth is, you can’t.That is precisely why you must learn what to hold onto and what to let go of. When that happens, your momentum increases, you feel lighter and, most of all, you know your worth. In life, we are all going through the growing pains of becoming the person we want to be. For some people, the pain is too much, and they give up. Instead of moving forward, they decide to stay stagnate and hold onto the very things that keep you down. In life we will have to let go of things, people and situations; when we understand and embrace the process, we allow ourselves to be abundant within. And when we are abundant within, the abundance spills into the other parts of our lives, families, relationships, careers and finances.I know letting go is painful and scary, but if you don’t let go, you miss out on the life you always wanted, the life you deserve. This is the process of breaking up with the old in search of the new. You are not doing this out of selfishness, but because you can acknowledge that the old no longer is the right place for youA psychology professor walked around on a stage while teaching stress management principles to an auditorium filled with students.  As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the typical “glass half empty or glass half full” question.  Instead, with a smile on her face, the professor asked, “How heavy is this glass of water I’m holding?” Students shouted out answers ranging from eight ounces to a couple pounds. She replied, “From my perspective, the absolute weight of this glass doesn’t matter.  It all depends on how long I hold it.  If I hold it for a minute or two, it’s fairly light.  If I hold it for an hour straight, its weight might make my arm ache a little.  If I hold it for a day straight, my arm will likely cramp up and feel completely numb and paralyzed, forcing me to drop the glass to the floor.  In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it feels to me.”As the class shook their heads in agreement, she continued, “Your stresses and worries in life are very much like this glass of water.  Think about them for a while and nothing happens.  “Think about them a bit longer and you begin to ache a little.  Think about them all day long, and you will feel completely numb and paralyzed – incapable of doing anything else until you drop them.” It’s important to remember to let go of your stresses and worries.  No matter what happens during the day, as early in the evening as you can, put all your burdens down.  Don’t carry them through the night and into the next day with you.  If you still feel the weight of yesterday’s stress, it’s a strong sign that it’s time to put the glass down.  A Prayer for Peace of MindAlmighty God, we bless you for our lives, we give you praise for your abundant mercy and grace we receive. We thank you for your faithfulness even though we are not that faithful to you.Lord Jesus, we ask you to give us all round peace in our mind, body, soul and spirit.We want you to heal and remove everything that is causing stress, grief, and sorrow in our lives.Please guide our path through life and make our enemies be at peace with us. Let your peace reign in our family, at our place of work, businesses and everything we lay our hands on.Let your angels of peace go ahead of us when we go out and stay by our side when we return.

Portland Health Department Steps up HIV/AIDS Sensitisation Drive

first_imgRelatedPortland Health Department Steps up HIV/AIDS Sensitisation Drive FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail With 43 new cases of HIV diagnosed in Portland since the start of this year, the Portland Health Department will be stepping up its education drive to sensitise residents about prevention measures.Winston Lowe, Sexually Transmitted Contact Investigator at the Portland Health Department, in his address at a recent community meeting held at the Fair Prospect Primary School, said that the figure represented an increasing trend in the incidence of the disease since the first case was discovered in the island in 1988.He said the amount of cases diagnosed in Portland has increased every year over the past 18 years, with 47 cases discovered last year.Mr. Lowe noted that the figure could be even higher, as it was possible that a number of infected persons still remained undiscovered by the Health Department.Meanwhile, he told JIS News that the education drive would include community meetings and regular outreach activities, in addition to utilising peer educators to sensitise young people about the dangers of the disease.That effort will be complemented by the work of the Portland AIDS Committee, which has been pursuing a number of activities in the parish aimed at alerting members of the public about the dangers of HIV/AIDS and to halt its spread.The community meeting was sponsored by the Priestman’s River Benevolent Society in collaboration with the Port Antonio Regional Office of the Jamaica Information Service.

Early Success Likely from Hemispheric Agriculture Meeting in Mobay

first_imgRelatedEarly Success Likely from Hemispheric Agriculture Meeting in Mobay RelatedEarly Success Likely from Hemispheric Agriculture Meeting in Mobay RelatedEarly Success Likely from Hemispheric Agriculture Meeting in Mobay FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The week-long 5th Ministerial Meeting on Agriculture and Rural Life in the Americas, at the Ritz Carlton Hotel, in Montego Bay St. James, is already reaping success with delegates hammering out a draft agro plan to be debated by the Ministers from 34 hemispheric countries on Wednesday.Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries, Hon. Dr. Christopher Tufton, told JIS News Tuesday night (October 27) that the delegates have been meeting since Monday to hammer out the plan. On Wednesday, when the 34 Ministers of Agriculture and Under-secretaries from Canada and the United States meet, they will discuss it and, hopefully, give approval.However, Dr. Tufton pointed out that the plan of action would not become effective before 2015.Tuesday’s deliberations followed the official opening ceremony, at which Prime Minister the Hon. Bruce Golding delivered the main address.“I think we’ve gotten good consensus from all the technical delegates, and we now have a plan of action for the Ministers to adopt and that will be implemented, monitored and supported by IICA(the Inter-American Institute for Co-operation in Agriculture),” Permanent Secretary in Jamaica’s Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries, Donovan Stanberry, told JIS News, Tuesday.He said that, in addition, a report is to be submitted Wednesday afternoon on support from the Private Sector, following dialogue among members of the sector who are looking at issues affecting their involvement in agricultural development.“We feel that we need to move the debate from just the technocrats and politicians, to include the private sector, which is a critical player if we’re going to have the investment in agriculture,” Mr. Stanberry said.General Manager of the Jamaica National Building Society (JNBS), Earl Jarrett, has been leading the private sector charge. They are expected to make a presentation dealing with the issues confronting them, the Permanent Secretary said.He acknowledged that there was renewed vigour to have greater private sector involvement in agriculture, as it represented an opportunity for big business.“We are trying to position agriculture as a good investment prospect, especially in this global economic decline where paper trading has collapsed. It is now time to invest in the real sector, and agriculture is where that should start,” he suggested.He says at the end of the deliberations on Friday, a hemispheric work plan would have been developed, to identify all the strategic elements needed to significantly improve agricultural production and productivity in the hemisphere.Among those attending the meeting are: Secretary General of the Organisation of American states (OAS), Jose Miguel Inzula; Director General of the Inter-American Institute for Co-operation on Agriculture (IICA) Dr. Chelston Braithwaite; Executive Director of UN Economic Commission on Latin America (ECLAC), Neil Pierre and Assistant Director General of the UN Food and Agricultural Authority (FAO), Jose Graziano DaSilva.center_img Early Success Likely from Hemispheric Agriculture Meeting in Mobay AgricultureOctober 28, 2009 Advertisementslast_img read more

Volkswagen inching closer to a fix for 3.0-litre diesel engines

Breyer reminded lawyers Thursday that he hasn’t approved that settlement yet.VW still faces lawsuits by at least six states plus investors and dealerships in the U.S., as well as parallel lawsuits, including consumer complaints, in Germany, all of which could raise the scandal’s price tag for the automaker. Future expenses may also include hundreds of millions of dollars in fees for the lawyers who secured Tuesday’s deal for car owners.More penalties, along with further damage to VW’s reputation, may yet spring from criminal probes in the U.S., Germany and South Korea.

Lincoln Aviator concept previews a new SUV due out next year

first_imgTrending in Canada We encourage all readers to share their views on our articles using Facebook commenting Visit our FAQ page for more information. What is it? A name that lived for a nanosecond back in 2003 is returning on an all-new Lincoln SUV. While the three-row Aviator is being pushed as a concept, the reality is it’s pretty much the model that will go on sale in 2019 — it’s also the first of two new SUVs arriving by 2020. When it does roll out, the Aviator will be the first to use one of Ford’s new platform architectures. In this case, a rear-drive base with an all-wheel-drive option.Why does it matter? When launched, the Aviator will be offered with a conventional gasoline powertrain and an all-new plug-in hybrid that will be based on a twin-turbo engine. It, says Lincoln, will deliver stellar performance and be fuel-efficient at the same time.

An app called Lincoln Way allows all the usual things; for instance, locking and unlocking the Aviator could be done through a smartphone, but goes one further by allowing the driver to start and drive the vehicle without the smart key.
