A man has shared a clever hack for keeping cereal fresh in the box in an amusing TikTok video. Nathan Fairbrother left his followers amazed when he revealed that all Australians had probably been closing the boxes wrong, and shared his trick for doing it the right way. Rather than slotting the tab into the perforated slot, the clever folding trick will keep air out of the packet and make sure the contents stay fresher for longer. The video was shared around social media with many users thankful for the hack. 'I did this for the first time recently and it works better than just the tabs,' another added.

President Trump has reportedly been urged by members of his inner circle, including top aide Hope Hicks and outside advisers like Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, to tone down his rhetoric as the nation’s cities are engulfed by rioting. ‘Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. The phrase ‘when the looting starts, the shooting starts’ was made famous by Walter Headley, Miami’s chief of police who was known to be a racist and who used it when describing attempts to put down race riots in the late 1960s. More than 700 employees ended up responding to the posting and asked why the site did not take action on Trump's post about Minnesota protests. Zuckerberg finally spoke out late Friday evening, stating: 'I've been struggling with how to respond to the President's tweets and posts all day.

George Waldron, later known by his alias George Barrington, is perhaps one of the finest examples of poacher turned game keeper of the 18th century. Like most thieves and con men, multiple accounts regarding Barrington’s early life exist – a situation he himself likely encouraged. In 1773, Price was arrested and George Barrington, as he was now known, left for England. He received a conditional pardon the following year and by 1796, he received a full pardon and was made High Constable of Parramatta. There he acquired a 46 hectares (114 acres) of land and retired in 1800 after nine years as a policeman.

In a revamped schedule dubbed the ‘UK Swing’, six tournaments will be played across the UK, starting with the British Masters on July 22 and concluding with the UK Championship at the end of August. The potential to hear the intimate conversations between a player and his caddie as they discuss strategy and tactics would be fascinating. Learning more about the players themselves, their personalities and interactions with fellow competitors would also be great. Sadly we live in a time where every word that comes out of someone’s mouth is scrutinised and poured over at length. One sport where a player is already mic’d up while competing is in the NFL.

Only three individuals have been jailed from over one hundred animal welfare cases prosecuted before the courts since the Animal and Welfare Act 2013 came into operation. That is according to figures provided by the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Michael Creed on the operation of the Animal Welfare Act to Sinn Fein’s Eoin Ó Broin. Mr Foley also paid over €7,372 to cover the Council costs of disposing of the animal carcasses and the clean up operation. The Dept of Agriculture was spared a €25,000 bill to clear all horses from the lands of Mr Foley after Mr Foley disposed of all of the remaining horses on the lands. The animal welfare charges relate to cattle and horses at locations in west Clare at Lisdeen, Lislanihan, Donoghboy, Dough and Baltard on dates between March 2014 and April 2016.

No austerity before 2023, a €37bn stimulus package, tax breaks for small businesses, and using EU funds, are among the solutions demanded of the Government to rescue the country from the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. Fianna Fáil leader Micheál Martin has led calls for quickening the pace of reopening of the country and committed to doing so if in government. Gerard Brady, Ibec chief economist, predicts GDP will fall by around 11%, or €37bn, in 2020, due to the pandemic. On top of the €23bn already committed, a further €15bn in stimulus measures will be necessary in 2020 and 2021, he said. He said the big challenge for small business post-crisis, especially those trading on the domestic market, will be the fragility of the domestic economy and confidence among consumers.

Transport Minister Shane Ross is writing a “warts and all” book about life in government with Fine Gael, which is due out before Christmas. Provisionally titled In Bed with the Blueshirts, the book is likely to be a much- anticipated publication given Mr Ross’ many and well-publicised rows with Mr Kenny and Fine Gael. Mr Ross and Mr Kenny came to blows consistently in the early days and were not helped by Mr Ross’ description of the then acting-taoiseach as a “political corpse” during talks in 2016. Mr Ross, who lost his Dublin-Rathdown seat in the February general election, remains an acting minister until a new government is formed and is no stranger to controversy. Sources close to the project have confirmed that the book will seek to tell the inside story, warts and all, of life in government with Mr Kenny and Mr Varadkar as part of the now-defunct Independent Alliance.

My summer running calendar had always put shape to my weekly routine as well as the wider summer. I empathise with the thousands of KBC Dublin Marathon runners who are now reassessing their running future. Allow yourself the time to dwell on this setback, and when the time is right, think about what you might like to get out of your running summer instead. A virtual runThe concept of virtual running has become very popular this spring. The backbone of a running summer are the dates we have set in the diary from early summer.
