    Wimbledon is just days away and for many tennis fans, that’ll mean settling down in front of the TV/lounging on Murray Hill watching other people run around.

    But all you tennis freaks would be way better off actually getting on the court yourself.

    Because according to a study conducted by the Local Tennis Leagues (LTL) and the University of Oxford, playing the sport has huge physical and mental benefits.

    The LTL runs mixed-sex tennis leagues for adults on public tennis courts across the country, and it asked its players how they felt their health had changed since regularly playing tennis.

    How tennis players felt… Read the full story

    Should you take suncare supplements
    (Picture: Getty Images)

    Wearing suncream can be a bit of a faff.

    It smells. It stains. It has to keep on being applied. Wouldn’t life just be so much easier if you started taking those sunscreen supplements you see being advertised and sold online?

    While popping a daily pill might be lower-effort, the chances of them protecting you in the sun are also way lower.

    In fact, the FDA has found that several supplement companies have been making misleading claims about sun protection, with supermarket giant Walmart removing a number from their shelves.

    The problem is that the supplement industry is relatively unregulated – and that goes for vitamin supplements,… Read the full story

    Why does my skin go rubbish in the summer and how can I fix it?
    (Picture: Getty images)

    Skin is a pernickety thing.

    It freaks out in winter, reacting to the cold with dry, flaky scales and dullness.

    Then, just as we’re rejoicing at the end of the chill and the return of our skin’s former glowing glory, summer hits and we’re greeted with a whole load of new problems.

    I can’t be the only one whose skin turns into a spot-covered oil slick the minute the temperature rises, can I?

    The reality is that while any sudden temperature changes can stress the skin, hot, sunny weather in particular does pose some issues when it… Read the full story

    Go to try on a pair of jeans at five different highstreet stores and you could well find that you’re a different size at age.

    It’s confusing and frustrating and sometimes, it can be confidence destroying.

    But hopefully, that’ll soon be a thing of the past, as UK stores sign up to an initiative to introduce standardised sizing across the country.

    Major retailers like New Look, River Island and ASOS are taking part in the Shape GB campaign – a nationwide survey designed to create standardised sizes in the UK.

    30,000 adults are being invited to submit their measurements via an app which will then allow retailers to collect data which will… Read the full story

    It’s hot, isn’t it?

    Too hot, some might say. With Britain currently experiencing a heatwave, it’s difficult to, you know, get on with your life.

    While you might enjoy the cool air-conditioned temp in the office, it’s unlikely you have the system fitted at home (unless you’re fancy).

    It’s too hot to lounge at home and definitely too hot to sleep at night. So, what are your options?

    First of all, let’s get the obvious ones out of the way.

    The more sunshine coming into your home, the hotter it will be. So get some blackout curtains or keep the blinds shut.

    Keep your windows and balcony/garden doors open. If you… Read the full story

    There are many things those of us who can see take for granted.

    Gin and sparkling wine are our go-to every summer, but sometimes it’s hard to choose between the two.

    Which is why we were so excited when we found out Marks & Spencer has just created a cocktail combining the two – the GinKing.

    The GinKing is a ‘clever blend of citrussy white wine’ from award-winning Denbies in Surrey, mixed with London Dry Gin from Langley Distillery, together with some spring water.

    And don’t worry about getting too tipsy – it’s only 8.5% alc.

    We wanted freedom from religious identification (Picture: Getty)

    Yesterday, the Supreme Court unanimously ruled that the Civil Partnership Act, in its current form, was incompatible with the European Convention of Human Rights.

    The ruling said, ‘The interests of the community in denying those different-sex couples who have a genuine objection to being married, the opportunities to enter into a civil partnership are unspecified and not easy to envisage.’

    My partner sent me a link to the news story and, as I was reading it, I felt a deep sense of relief.

    Svetlana Alekseeva was just a small child when she was horrifically burned – but that hasn’t stopped her from perusing her dreams of becoming a model.

    ‘I have always wanted to be a model but was told that I would never be allowed on the catwalk because of my burn scars,’ the Russian 18-year-old says.

    ‘Then I thought, why do I need a catwalk when I can be a photo model?’

    And so she’s set about making that happen, using social media as a platform.

    Years ago, Svetlana was playing with a lighter when she accidentally set her dress on fire and the cheap fabric went up in flames.

Svetlana Alekseeva was born in the city of Komsomolsk-on-Amur in south-eastern Russia's Khabarovsk Krai region. Her father died when she was young, and her distraught mum started drinking heavily. Shortly afterwards, Svetlana was playing with a lighter and accidentally set her dress on fire. The cheap fabric instantly went up in flames. Svetlana???s mother came home a couple of hours later and found her badly-burned daughter passed out on the floor. She spent the next two months in intensive care. According to the now 18-year-old, her mother did not visit her once during this period. After she left hospital, Svetlana claims that her mother started insulting and mocking her, even beating her up with a metal pipe on one occasion. The teen even alleges that her mum tried to drown her in bathwater while washing her hair, and regularly cut her with knives. Due to her mum???s excessive drinking, Svetlana spent her time living between her home and an orphanage. Authorities would send her to the institution when her mother was drunk, and send her back when she sobered up.

    An adorable orphaned baby gorilla has bonded with her new surrogate mum, after her own mother and father died.

    Zahra, a female Western lowland gorilla, was orphaned in April when her mum, Naku, 17, and dad Cassius, 31, died of complications from gastrointestinal infections.

    The animals’ deaths are thought to have been caused by E. coli which was present in the water system of their enclosure at the Milwaukee County Zoo.

See SWNS story NYGORILLA; A baby gorilla who lost her parents to a fatal infection when she was seven months old has been bonding with her new surrogate mom after a successful introduction. Zahra, a nine-month old Western lowland gorilla, was orphaned in April when her mom Naku, 17, and father Cassius, 31, died of complications stemming from gastrointestinal infections. Since then, Zahra has been cared for by zookeepers in her native Milwaukee County Zoo. To give Zahra the best chance, officials at the Gorilla Species Survival Plan (SSP) were keen to match her with a caring gorilla mom who would help her integrate into a new social group. It was decided that the tot would make the 450-mile move to Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, Ohio, on June 13 where it was hoped she would bond with one of 15 potential surrogate moms. After zookeepers made sure Zahra was in good health, the baby was introduced to her first potential mom Toni, 41, earlier this week. Toni is an experienced mom and previously acted as a surrogate to orphaned baby Kamira, who relocated to Columbus after she was rejected by her own mom at Oklahoma City Zoo in 2014.

    We’ve all been there. You’re invited to a birthday a party. You’re not particularly close to the person; how much do you spend? How much effort do you put in?

    You don’t want to look like a cheapo but you also don’t want to seem to keen. And there’s that other thing too, you’re skint and payday seems to be taking a hiatus.

    So we might need to start taking a leaf out of children’s birthday shindigs.

    While some parents are forking out some serious dough to spoil their little brats, others have started something called fiver parties.

    It’s stunning weather out there, and a cold flute of something fizzy is basically a necessity in the beautiful sun.

    Prosecco is the tipple of choice for many, but for those of you cutting down on sugar, it was never a viable option until recently.

    Sugar-free versions of the Italian drink are now starting to pop up online, and they’re a great alternative if you’re watching your intake.

    The way that these are made is actually less complicated than you might think.

    Prosecco needs sugar for fermentation, but if you reduce that amount so the sugar added is exactly equal to the amount burned in the process, it renders the finished… Read the full story

    Masturbating can be a great thing; it can reduce stress, make you more productive, and improve your skin health.

    As amazing as it might be, it can become a problem if you get addicted to it.

    The porn, masturbation, and orgasm cycle, or PMO as its known on anti-masturbation website NoFap, can take its toll.

    Daniel*, who struggled with the cycle since pubescence, has been PMO free for eight months now.

    Sex-positive Nadia Bokody is no stranger to controversial ideas.

    The sex writer wants schools to teach students, as young as 11, about masturbating.

    Sydney-based Nadia says sex education is ‘frighteningly inadequate’ for children living in today’s highly sexualised culture.

    She feels it’s important for kids to learn about self-pleasure as soon as they hit puberty.

    ‘To blindly ignore the fact that young people are engaging in sexual acts an intercourse at younger ages than ever before, is, quite frankly, reckless,’ she tells Metro.co.uk.

    ‘I understand this is an incredibly uncomfortable issue for parents and teachers alike, but that’s not a good enough reason to… Read the full story

    ‘Bullying is just part of growing up’, is certainly a rhetoric I’ve heard a lot as the CEO of Ditch the Label, one of the largest anti-bullying charities in the world. Today we are launching our latest research, the Annual Bullying Survey 2018 and the paper doesn’t make for light reading.

    As a result of bullying, one in two felt depressed, 28% self-harmed and 11% had attempted to take their own lives. In the past 12-months alone, 22% of the 9,150 young people we surveyed had experienced bullying. Let me be clear when I say that things like depression, anxiety and suicide absolutely should not be… Read the full story

Now Papen shares another epic story of her African trip with Australian photographer Jesse Walker as she walked naked among the members of an isolated Ethiopian tribe and tells some remarkable stories about how beauty and nudity is seen by them. Papen said: "They have their own customs and believes, their own beauty-standards, their own religion, living life in harmony with nature and the spirit world. "You may say, they are totally different then we are. But to me they are, what we once were. In touch with nature, a part of nature, immensely grateful and respectful towards it." Papen travelled with Walker to the isolated Omo Valley in south-western Ethiopia, where she lived for a week with the Surma tribe. Papen said: "What we claim to call beautiful in our Western world isn???t quite the same how the Surma tribe pursues beauty. Both Surma men and woman pierce their ears, some woman stretch their lower lip with a plate. They scar their bodies by making little cuts repetitively.""Isn???t it funny we invented all these creams, lasers and other treatments to get rid of ours." The Surma have a long history of body painting. By using pulverised minerals they create drawings and patterns, something which Papen also tried out on her own body.

Belgian model Marisa Papen became the centre of a worldwide controversy when she was imprisoned for the night after posing naked in the vast temple complex of Karnak near the Egyptian city of Luxor. Marisa, who describes herself as a "free-spirited and wild-hearted expressionist" was not put off by her experience in the Egyptian jail however. She recently did a naked photoshoot in Jerusalem, a sacred city for Jews, Muslims and Christians alike. Marisa said: "(I want to) show my personal religion in a world where freedom is becoming a very luxury item." The Western Wall or Wailing Wall is an ancient limestone wall in the old city which was part of a Jewish temple expansion and a holy site where Jews go to pray. It is also the site where Islamic Prophet Muhammad tied his steed, al-Buraq, on his night journey to Jerusalem before ascending to paradise. Marisa told Central European News (CEN): "It was immediately clear to me that if we could manage to take a picture in front of or near the Wailing Wall, the whole trip would be a success. "We got into a conversation with a super friendly guy, who turned out to be Muslim, and he invited us into his house where we drank coffee and mint tea." When Papen and her photographer Mathias Lambrecht asked if they could visit his rooftop to take a photograph, the man gladly obliged. She added: "I still had to explain that I wanted to take off my clothes for a picture." According to Marisa, the man "was even more chill than we thought" and obliged, although he urged the two to be careful and to only take two minutes so that nobody would see them. Papen said she has received positive comments about the photoshoot and some of her Israeli fans have even invited her to visit another time so they can show her even bPics shows: Marisa Papen's Egyptian photo shoot; A nude photo model ended up in prison after she was caught doing a secret photoshoot inside one of Egypt's most ancient temples. Belgian nude model Marisa Papen, who describes herself as a "free-spirited and wildhearted expressionist", travelled with photographer Jesse Walker to Egypt for a spectacular photoshoot inside and outside some of the most famous landmarks of ancient Egypt. Papen said: "The last two years I have walked wild and free in at least 50 countries. Rarely do I end up in precarious situations. Until April this year, in Egypt." The nude photo model, from the Flanders region of Belgium, met up in Cairo with photographer Walker who flew in all the way from Australia to do the shoot. And even though the duo said they were aware of the cultural, political and religious differences between Egypt and the West when it comes to nudity, the adventure ended differently than they both expected. Already during a first photoshoot near the famous pyramids of Giza, the two got into trouble. They reportedly bribed a security guard to start the photoshoot when suddenly two young men showed up. Papen said: "I was suddenly completely awake, like a cold shower at 5am in the morning. We tried to explain them that we were making art with the highest respect for Egyptian culture, but they could not see a connection between nudity and art. In their eyes it was porn, or something like that." In the end, Papen and Walker managed to stay out of trouble by bribing the young men with 20 USD (15 GBP). After Giza, the two travelled to Luxor to visit the vast temple complex of Karnak to shoot pictures with the theme of "dance". But as Karnak turned out to be even more thoroughly guarded than the pyramids at Giza, Papen and Walker had to think of another plan for their photoshoot. They decided to hide in the complex just before closing time and to start with the photoshoot "making pirouettes in Cleopatra???s footprints" aPic shows: Marisa Papen straddling an Israeli flag pole The nude model jailed for a photoshoot inside an Egyptian temple has caused outrage once again after posing naked in front of the holy Wailing Wall in Jerusalem.

    Loads of us smother our cracked lips in petroleum jelly in the hope of soothing and repairing the skin.

    So you could be forgiven for thinking that applying to cuts might also help them to heal quicker.

    A new study, however, has revealed that the reverse might be true.

    Researchers now believe that that petroleum jelly damages the skin’s natural plaster and that not only slows the healing process but may even open the wound up to fresh infection.

    Bodies such as the American Academy of Dermatology and some NHS hospitals recommend using the stuff to keep wounds moist and prevent scars from forming and becoming too large, deep or itchy –… Read the full story
