Nando’s boss sends incredible message to employees after all branches shut in UK

We need more of this…

Big retailers and fast food chains up and down the country are being forced to shut because of the coronavirus outbreak.

Primark, McDonald’s, Subway and Costa are all shutting their doors – to name but a few – and Nando’s is no different.

The chicken restaurant chain announced last night that it would be closing all of its UK sites until further notice.

But what about the workers? There’s been a bit of uncertainty about what might happen to some people’s jobs, even after the Government announced it’ll step in to pay wages.

Which is why messages like the one this Nando’s employee received are so needed.

Kyle Gillespie took to social media to reveal that he and other Nando’s employees had received a message saying their jobs were ‘100% secure’, and that they’ll be getting two weeks at full pay followed by 80% of their contracted hours until they reopen.

Kyle wrote on Twitter: “Nando’s are completely shutting from tonight and we’ve just got the nicest message from the boss saying our jobs are 100% secure and that we’ll be getting 2 weeks full pay then 80%.

“Really is the best company to work for but feeling sad that not everybody has been so lucky”.

A great move from Nando’s, we need more of this…

A hairdresser has said we’re all making the same mistake when washing our hair

Everything we’ve been taught is a lie…

Published

While most of us are confident that washing our hair is a mastered skill, a hairdresser has claimed that the majority of people have been doing it wrong for years.

Can we not do anything right?

The hairdresser – known only as Felicity – unintentionally created a social media firestorm when she took to Twitter to share her professional advice on how to properly use shampoo. 

Apparently, it isn’t just the typical ‘shampoo, rinse, conditioner, rinse’ method that so many of us have adopted over the years.

Felicity said it had come to her attention that not everyone knows that when showering, shampoo needs to be applied and rinsed twice rather than once. 

She wrote: “The first time will cleanse the hair of all the oils and product build-up so that when you do it for the second time the shampoo can actually do what it’s intended to do.

“Also, only apply shampoo to the scalp and when you rinse it will run through the middle and the ends. Then only apply conditioner to the middle and ends of your hair, and use your fingers or a wide tooth comb to detangle in the shower while conditioner is on.

“And lastly remember to only wash your hair 2-3 times a week because too much washing can cause more build-up and damage to the hair.”

Of course, Twitter users couldn’t believe what they were hearing and, upon trying the method for themselves, were incredibly grateful for Felicity and her wisdom. One person wrote: “My hair honestly feels better now! I can’t believe what a difference that made – or that I’m 26 and just finally learned the right way to wash my hair from a Tweet.”

Another commented: “So I saw this yesterday and decided to try your 2x shampoo advice when I washed my hair tonight… Omg THANK YOU!”

Who else is trying out the method tonight?

More than 30,000 sign petition calling for people who walk dogs during a heatwave to be fined

A petition calling for fines for all those who walk their dogs during heatwaves has surpassed 30,000 signatures. 

The petition was launched by twenty-five year old Paige Spearman, who wants owners to refrain from walking their pets in temperatures above 20 degrees celsius.

In her Change.org description, she explained: “Far too many family fur babies die every year from heat stroke due to negligence, and ignorance. A dogs average body temperature is 38/39° so anything over 40/41° can become fatal if not recognised quickly.

“I believe fines should be enforceable if ANYONE is seen walking a dog in 20° heat and over by the police. As well as people speaking up and calling the police if they see this happening but with supporting evidence.”

She went on to explain that, because tarmac takes a couple of hours to cool down after being in direct sunlight, the only appropriate time to walk a dog on a hot day is in the early evening – and even then, water should always be on hand.

At the time of writing, Paige’s petition has reached 30,491 signatures – it needs 100,000 for the topic to be debated in parliament.

The petition comes as the country continues to be gripped by a heatwave, with has seen temperature highs of 31 degrees celsius; while this hot weather may be a treat for most of us, for our dogs, it can be deadly.

Dogs are unable to regulate their body temperatures as well as we do; panting is the only way a dog can cool down and, sadly, it isn’t enough to stop them from overheating.

Signs of heatstroke in dogs include heavy panting and excessive drooling. They may appear lethargic, drowsy or uncoordinated, or collapse and vomit in extreme circumstances.

The RSPCA advises people to dial 999 immediately if an animal starts displaying these symptoms.

As the heatwave continues to grip the nation, the higher temperatures and humid conditions have brought with it a myriad of horseflies. 

We can never just enjoy the nice weather in peace, can we? 

Horseflies – known unaffectionately as clegs – are large, hairy flies with bites that pack a serious punch.

The pesky insects are known to thrive in warm and humid conditions so, as you can imagine, Greater Manchester is swarming with them at the moment.

A bite from a horsefly can be seriously painful and, though not considered to be generally harmful, they can lead to some nasty infections. 

If you’ve been bitten, the NHS advises the following.

Bite hack 101: Clean the area. It’s important to keep the bite clean because if bacteria gets into the skin it can become infected. It’s best to clean the wound with an antiseptic soap and warm water. It will also help to keep the wound covered to prevent infection. 

The website also recommends applying a cold compress, which will soothe the bitten area and stop any itchiness or inflammation. Elevating the affected area has also been proven to help reduce swelling.

Though if you’re looking for a quick remedy, doctors have been known to recommend using an over-the-counter steroid cream containing hydrocortisone. Ibuprofen gel can also help ease any pain and swelling.

The official NHS website says: “A bite from a horsefly can be very painful and the bitten area of skin will usually be red and raised.

“Horsefly bites can take a while to heal and can become infected. See your GP if you have symptoms of an infection, such as pus or increasing pain, redness and swelling.”

You should contact your GP or 111 if the symptoms do not improve within a few days, if you’ve been stung around the eyes or mouth, if you develop flu like symptoms or if the bite becomes infected. Dial 999 if you began wheezy or dizzy, experience nausea or vomiting or you lose consciousness.
