Liam Gallagher gets petty after Kaiser Chiefs pick a fight

Entertainment
Liam Gallagher has added a new name to the list of people he has petty feuds with on Twitter, calling Kaiser Chiefs keyboardist Nick "Peanut" Baines "p***flaps". Gallagher had been set for an appearance at Fall In Love Festival in Romania earlier this month but cancelled over safety fears. The former Oasis star tweeted that he was pulling out of his performance because he was told the stage wasn't safe, prompting Kaiser Chiefs to tweet: "If we found out a stage wasn't safe, we'd tell the other bands on there too, right? 'Safety comes first as always' - for everyone. We must've broken it by putting on a rock n roll show 30mins before you."Gallagher responded in his usual combative style, writing: "This 1s for P***FLAP out of the KAISER CHEIFS all that money you spend on props ie your daft l...

Too many hooked on prescription drugs – health chiefs

Health
Hundreds of thousands of people in England are getting hooked on prescription drugs, health chiefs fear.A Public Health England review looked at the use of strong painkillers, antidepressants and sleeping tablets - used by a quarter of adults every year.It found that at the end of March 2018 half of people using these drugs had been on them for at least 12 months.Officials said long-term use on such a scale could not be justified and was a sign of patients becoming dependent.PHE medical director Prof Paul Cosford said he was worried."These medicines have many vital clinical uses and can make a big difference to people's quality of life."But he added there were too many cases where patients were using them for longer than "clinically" appropriate - where t...

The UK's telecoms industry has issued the prime minister a challenge of its own after Boris Johnson said he wanted full-fibre broadband "for all" by 2025.An open letter says the target is possible, but only if the government tackles four problems causing delays.It adds that all of the issues must be resolved "within the next 12 months" to achieve the high-speed internet goal.But one expert said at least one of the measures was unachievable in that time frame.Mr Johnson originally declared his desire to deliver the 100% rollout of fibre-optic broadband to properties across the UK "in five years at the outside" in an article for the Telegraph published before he won the leadership vote.In it, he described the government's former ta...

Kansas prosecutors not actively investigating Chiefs’ Hill

Kansas prosecutors not actively investigating Chiefs’ Hill

Sports
June 7 (UPI) -- Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill is not actively being investigated for potential child abuse by prosecutors in Johnson County, Kan., according to District Attorney Steve Howe. "As in any case, if we receive additional evidence we re-evaluate," Howe told the Kansas City Star on Friday. The Chiefs banned Hill, 25, from all team activities in late April after Kansas City television station KCTV released audio of Hill discussing striking his 3-year-old son. Police were called to Hill's home twice in March and determined his son had been injured. Howe announced in April that charges would not be filed because the evidence in the case didn't clearly establish who committed the action. The Kansas Department for Children and Families is investigating Hill. NFL spokes...
