Nanny's Loaded Fag Survey


According to Chesterfield Royal Hospital:
"We all know that smoking harms and kills - and we know the harm that passive smoking does to other people.  We also know that people smoke on site at Chesterfield Royal Hospital every single day."
Pah!

The arrogance of a statement that begins "We all know" speaks volumes about Nanny's chums there.

To this end the hospital has launched an online survey, designed to get the required results that bans smoking everywhere. The hospital also wants to ban patients from leaving the wards to smoke:
"Do you think patients staying in our hospital after an operation, or after an emergency admission should be able to leave the ward to smoke?"
A fine example of a loaded survey!

HEATWAVE ALERT CODE RED

According to our ever reliable weather forecasters, the UK is set for a mini heatwave for the next day or so. Temperatures could, theoretically, reach 30-35 degrees.

Really!?

Needless to say Nanny has gone into red alert and is frantically warning everyone to take care, remain hydrated and not to leave the house if they are "vulnerable".

I wonder how it is that we have survived warm weather before Nanny came along to tell us what to do?

Just dress sensibly, drink liquids (yes our bodies will tell us that!) and open a window or two.

I dare say we might get through the next few days warm weather in one piece!

Auntie Bans Titty



Oh dear I see that the dunderheads from Auntie have taken a dislike to the name of one of the characters from Arthur Ransome's Swallows and Amazons.

When BBC Films announced it was to remake Swallows and Amazons, it stressed that the production would stay true to Arthur Ransome’s classic.

However, one of the Walker children has been renamed after it was decided a character called Titty would provoke too many sniggers.
Instead, she will be called Tatty Walker, which in itself is worthy of a snigger or two!

Prats!

Booze Matters



Given that we are paying way above the European norm for our booze but, allegedly, drinking like fish (can a fish drink?) why does Nanny insist that raising prices is the cure all for our modest intake of booze?

The Right To Offend


Commiserations and respect to Micky Quinn, landlord of The Fleming Arms on the Isle of Wight, who has managed to irk Nanny by use a pub A board to write politically incorrect musings.

The signs say things such as ‘Feminism is soooo cute’, ‘Can dyslexics read Welsh?’ and 'Fat people are harder to kidnap – stay safe’.

Mr Quinn is quoted by The Metro as saying that insists he ‘just wants to make people laugh’ with his boards.

However, he said:
Someone said they were offended we used the word kidnap because people get kidnapped every day.

The police rang me and said there’s nothing they can do about it but can I hurry up and put a new sign up.
A spokesperson from Hampshire Constabulary confirmed the reports.
We have received two complaints from members of the public about signs displayed on Binstead Hill in Ryde, Isle of Wight.

No criminal offences have been identified at this time.’
That being the case Mr Quinn can carry on writing his non pc messages.

Sunscreen Kills Sperm


As we endure a typically mediocre June (weatherwise) it is gemusing to see that the use of sunscreen, so hyped and pushed by Nanny and pharmacies etc, is in fact endangering men's sperm.
Research found that just 25% of young men were producing good quality sperm, and the average volume had declined by a quarter since the 1940s. The findings, presented at the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology’s annual meeting in Lisbon, prompted warnings from doctors that consumer lifestyles may have created a toxic environment for men.

Dr Niels Jorgensen, a consultant at the Department of Growth and Reproduction at Rigshospitalet, in Copenhagen, said is quoted by the Telegraph:
Modern life is having an impact because we are exposed to so many chemicals and we don’t know what they do.” 
Chemicals found in sun cream, cosmetics, frying pans, cars, foods and even in items of clothing could all increase risks to sperm, he suggested.

He went on to say:
We are advised to protect ourselves with these sunblocks but it seems when you go to the laboratory and test some of these chemicals they can interfere with the sperm function.

If I was to advise my own family I would say don’t use it.” 
Given that the British summer is usually crap anyway, I have found Nanny's obsession with sunscreen to be perverse to say the least!

The Dangers of High Heels


It seems that despite the obvious, some scientists have devoted time and energy to studying the effects of wearing high heels for a long period of time.

They have come to the obvious conclusions that:

1 You should take them off every so often, and

2 Don't run in them.

As per The New York Times:
"A new study published this month in The International Journal of Clinical Practice, researchers at Hanseo University in South Korea turned to a handy recruit group: young women at the university studying to become airline attendants who were required to wear high heels to class, since they would have to wear them if hired by a Korean airline. With each passing year, from incoming freshmen to seniors, the women would have one additional year of heel wearing behind them, making it easy to track physiological changes.
So the researchers invited 10 young women from each class to the lab and tested their balance with a wobbly board and the strength of their ankle muscles using computerized exercise machines.

The results were interesting. Compared with the freshmen, who were generally new to wearing heels, the sophomores and juniors displayed greater strength in some of the muscles around their ankles, particularly those on the inside and outside of the joint.

This difference between new and experienced heel wearers suggests that “wearing high heeled shoes may at first lead to adaptation and increased strength,” as the ankle responds to the stresses placed upon it by the unfamiliar shoes, says Jee Yong-Seok, a professor of exercise physiology at Hanseo University, who led the study.

But the senior women, who had been wearing heels the longest, showed weakening of those same muscles, compared even with the freshmen, as well as much weaker muscles along the front and back of the ankle and dramatically worse balance.

In fact, all of the upperclasswomen had worse balance than the freshmen, even as some of their muscles were strengthening.

What seems to have been happening, Dr. Yong-Seok says, is that the ratio of strength between the muscles on the sides of the ankles and those at the front and back became increasingly unbalanced over years of wearing heels, contributing to ankle instability and balance problems and eventually to a decline in the strength even of those muscles that had been stronger for awhile.

This finding is somewhat worrisome, says Neil Cronin, a biology professor at the University of Jyvaskyla in Finland who has studied heel wearing and wrote the recent review of related science.

Strength imbalances in the muscles around a joint, he says, particularly those around the ankle, “are known to increase injury risk in other muscle groups,” such as those in the hamstrings or upper leg.

Neither he nor Dr. Yong-Seok suggests that women eschew heels, however.

Dr. Yong-Seok does recommend that people who often wear heels strengthen their ankles whenever possible with simple heel lifts, for which you stand barefoot and then rise onto your toes repeatedly; and heel drops, during which you stand on the edge of a stair and slowly lower your heel over the edge.

Dr. Cronin also suggests slipping off heels while sitting at your desk, since wearing the shoes, even when not moving “can alter the resting length of the muscles and tendons around the ankle,” which could destabilize the joint and increase the risk of injury.

He also strongly advises against running in heels. The impact forces created “would be concentrated over a small region of the foot in high heels, creating regions of very high pressure,” he said, meaning foot pain. Plus balance and biomechanics are compromised, making running in heels “a very inefficient way to move.”"
In short, if you apply some common sense you will be fine.

Coming soon, a study on the effects of walking in bare feet on broken glass.
