When William Shakespeare died on April 23, 1616, he left everything he owned to his daughter Susanna – except his old bed and linen, which he left to his wife. The Times

When “American Pie” was released, the single was split in two because the record didn’t have enough room for the whole song – the A-side ran 4:11 and the B-side was 4:31. Metro

Ibuprofen linked to heart disease risk. Antiinflammatory drugs use d as painkillers can increase the risk of heart disease, especially in the elderly, according to a study published in the British Medical Journal.

Obesity gene ‘no barrier to weight loss’. People with a gene linked to obesity are just as likely to benefit from a weight loss programme of diet and exercise as those without, Newcastle University researchers say. It was already known that those with the FTO gene are more likely to gain weight, but whether it would make it harder to lose that weight was an unknown quantity. The Guardian

Why women lie awake at night. Women who sleep badly should try getting to bed earlier. The results of a small study suggest that women’s circadian clocks – the biological mechanism that controls our sleep-wake cycles – are set, on average, two hours earlier than men’s. But many women defy their natural patterns, and so when they do go to bed, they’re in a more advanced circadian phase than they should be, and may not sleep well as a result. Daily Express



Quote of the week. If you’re more interested in what you’re saying than the person listening to you is, you’re the definition of a boring person.” David Foster Wallace, quoted in The Guardian

The European Council President says Theresa May has told him the UK could be ready to begin the formal process of leaving the European Union by February. The timing of the process has been shrouded with uncertainty, but Tusk claims: “Prime Minister May was very open and honest with me”. The Independent

UK economy ‘to stall over the next two years’. Growth will slow to a near standstill this year with weakness until at least the end of 2018, according to the British Chambers of Commerce. In its first economic forecast since the Brexit vote, the BCC will cut its forecasts for gross domestic product growth from 2.2% to 1.8% for this year. Next year, growth is expected to slow from the 2.3% originally projected to 1%, the weakest rate since 2009. Financial Times
