Palace Releases New Collection To Support The NHS

Palace Releases New Collection To Support The NHS

After years of division and very cross words at the dining table, the UK is finally united on one opinion: that the NHS is unequivocally great. The fashion industry agrees, hence the proliferation of Nye Bevan-repping merch, from Blacksmith’s fundraising cap to Origins Sounds’ NHS scarf. Now, Palace has taken to frontline support too.

Just this morning, the cult skate label announced the release of a brand new collection that’ll channel all profits to NHS Charities Together: an initiative that unites over 230 organisations covering mental health, community outreach, volunteer mobilisation and staff support. Which means a hoody, sweatshirt and T-shirt in a pristine shade of white and do-good blue.

That’s not all. The Palace logo – the now iconic infinite triangle that was especially designed to convey a sense of foreverness – has been repurposed to include the words ‘national health service’. Perhaps the uniform of a recently-opened

Who founded Subway?

It was 1965 when young Frederick DeLuca and Peter Buck forged a business relationship that would result in the world’s largest submarine sandwich chain known for its “footlong” sandwiches.

However, DeLuca’s path to success and a multibillion fortune from transforming a single sandwich shop into what’s now a fast-food behemoth started with humble beginnings.

During his childhood, DeLuca spent a hefty chunk of his time in the Bronx, a borough of New York City, while his father was a factory worker, according to the New York Times. At 10 years old, the family moved to the Schenectady area before settling in Bridgeport, Conn.


After graduating from Central High School in 1965, DeLuca worked at a hardware shop to garner up enough funds in order to pursue his dream of studying medicine. However, he quickly learned his pay would not cover the hefty

Confident Froome trusts Tour de France safety measures

Confident Froome trusts Tour de France safety measures

Paris (AFP) – Chris Froome’s hunger for a fifth or even sixth Tour de France victory remains undiminished although he is unsure the race can go ahead in 2020 due to coronavirus, he told French daily L’Equipe in an interview published on Tuesday.

The Tour’s postponement until late August suits the four-time winner who has been fighting to regain fitness from severe injuries sustained in a training crash last June.

“It’s an advantage for me, the race being put back, but it’s not something to celebrate,” said Froome.

The Kenyan-born racer feels the Tour may still be cancelled due to the pandemic, but is training hard for victory at his Monaco base.

“I’m confident I’ll be 100 percent fit at the starting line,” said Froome, who turns 35 next month and who is in the final year of his Ineos contract.

“Maybe it won’t take place, but I’m training as

LGBT+ victims of coronavirus should be counted in health data, U.S. lawmakers urge

By Matthew Lavietes

NEW YORK, April 30 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – State lawmakers urged U.S. officials on Thursday to determine how many coronavirus patients are LGBT+, saying the data could be critical to the health of the gay and transgender community amid the pandemic.

Other minority groups such as African Americans and Latinos have been shown to be suffering higher death and infection rates than the general public, said legislators from New York, California, Colorado and Pennsylvania.

They staged a virtual townhall calling for data collection at state and federal levels. “If you don’t know where it hurts, you don’t know how much it hurts, you’ll never fix what hurts,” said Malcolm Kenyatta, a Democratic Pennsylvania state representative.

Kenyatta recently introduced a bill calling for state government forms that collect demographic information to include an LGBT+ identification option.

“We are ignored, and the scope of the problem is not readily

  • Prince Harry has announced his first major project since he officially stepped down as a senior royal on March 31.
  • The HeadFIT platform will provide online self-help tools for military personnel, enabling them to “take a proactive approach to their own mental wellbeing.”
  • “This is about being the best you can be,” Harry said in a statement.

    Prince Harry’s long made mental health a central facet of his public platform, while his pride in his military service is well known. So his latest project—the first he’s announced since stepping down as a senior royal—comes as little surprise. On Monday, April 27, Harry launched HeadFIT, an online platform that will offer military personnel 24/7 access to self-help tools in order to manage their wellbeing.

    While the platform was designed with the military in mind, anyone can access the online tools, according to a press release from the

    Chris Froome driven by desire to make one of sport's greatest comebacks

    Chris Froome driven by desire to make one of sport’s greatest comebacks

    Chris Froome has revealed he has done several 30-hour weeks of indoor riding during the COVID-19 pandemic, fired by the ambition of trying to win a record fifth or even sixth Tour de France and so make one of the sport’s greatest comebacks.

    Froome revealed in a series of interviews that he finds inspiration in the photographs of the serious injuries and fractures he suffered when he crashed into a wall while studying the route of the time trial at the Critérium du Dauphiné last June. 

    He has no memory of the moment of the 70kph crash, but his long recovery and return to the saddle via months of rehabilitation, follow-up surgery, pain and personal sacrifice appear to have made him more resilient and more determined than ever.   

    Froome will turn 35 on May 20, so an eventual fifth Tour de France win would make him the second-oldest winner in

    FEATURE-‘Emergency’ for millions as coronavirus severs remittance lifeline

    By Thin Lei Win and Ban Barkawi

    ROME/AMMAN, May 1 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – When Fathy called his family back home in Egypt a week ago, they asked him to send money, as he had for the past year. But he had none, having lost his job as a car painter in the United Arab Emirates in March, when a coronavirus lockdown was introduced.

    Fathy’s sisters and aunt rely on his monthly transfers to “eat and drink and live”, said the 38-year-old, who declined to give his full name as he has been living and working in the Gulf state without a legal permit.

    “They’re borrowing a little money from their neighbours at the moment to get by … my heart goes out to them,” Fathy, who used to send home part of his 1,500 dirhams ($408) salary, told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.
