The Football Association has decided to take no further action against John Terry or Chelsea after investigating the circumstances of his substitution in his final game at Stamford Bridge at the end of last season.Having worn the number 26 jersey during his 19-year career at the club, Terry left the field through a guard of honour formed by his teammates after 26 minutes of the champions' 5-1 win over Sunderland.The FA's Integrity Department said it would investigate the substitution after it emerged that several punters had won thousands of pounds for betting on the exact time of Terry's substitution at odds of 100-1.Shortly before the game, the editor of a Chelsea fanzine had tweeted that Terry would be withdrawn after 26 minutes.However, it is understood the FA has now decided there is ...
An RD Came Out Against Veganism—and Twitter Was Not Pleased

An RD Came Out Against Veganism—and Twitter Was Not Pleased

Health
People who eat meat and those who don't often argue about which diet is healthier. So it wasn't exactly a surprise this morning when a UK nutrition professor gave veganism a thumbs-down on live television . . . and Twitter hit back hard in response.“It’s really hard work to make a vegan diet healthy,” said Sophie Medlin, RD, a lecturer in nutrition and dietetics at King's College in London, during a BBC segment on the rise of veganism. “You have to think very carefully about what you’re eating all the time.

Finance
LAST year, Bob Fornaro, the boss of Spirit Airlines, talked of the effort his firm had made to reduce the number of customer complaints. The ultra-low-cost carrier, dubbed the most hated airline in America by Bloomberg, had long been ranked as a primary purveyor of passenger pain, regularly propping up lists that rate airline service. Alas, Mr Fornaro’s efforts seem to have gone unrewarded. Complaints per passenger remain easily the highest of any of the big American operators. In fact, as our chart shows, things seem to be getting worse.One consolation for Spirit is that the same is true of nearly all its competitors.
