KNITTING TOGETHER
Chances are you probably
had or, indeed, still have an
elderly relative who loved a
spot of knitting. Jumpers,
hats and scarves, there
was nothing these nimblefingered knitters couldn't
create. Now, it seems,
the folk behind innocent
smoothies - who have
been putting little woolly
hats on their bottles since
2003 - want to step up their
efforts to help older people.
It was recently revealed that
200,000 of our more elderly
citizens say they haven't had
a conversation with friends
or family for a month. This
year, the innocent team has
received 1.5 million little
hats for their smoothies
from nationwide knitters,
which will be back on the
bottles as we approach the
colder months. And, to help
those who need and deserve
it most, for each bottle sold,
25p will go straight to Age
UK, the UK's largest charity
working with older people.

STAND-UP GUY
US chat show host Jimmy
Kimmel might not have
the global profile of Jimmy
Fallon or the now-retired
David Letterman. However,
having won an ongoing
battle with the Republican
party over its controversial
Graham-Cassidy healthcare
bill, he landed a blow other
comics could only dream
of. The Jimmy Kimmel
Live host had spoken out
in May when his newborn
son required surgery. While
he could afford the medical
bills, he said, most could
not. Much sniping ensued
with key Republicans, who
were effectively looking
to repeal and replace the
Affordable Care Act (aka
Obamacare) with the
Graham-Cassidy bill, which
included a $243 billion
cut to federal healthcare
spending. Now, the bill is
dead and won't get a vote
in the Senate. Kimmel
swiftly suggested a team
of actual experts work on
the next bill, quipping: 'I
know it sounds crazy, but
sometimes you have to
think inside the box.'

Psychology
TEENAGE KICKS
The Inbetweeners was a hit
because people could relate
to the sitcom. Secondary
school was about having
a few close, like-minded
mates, rather than being the
kind of jock or cheerleader
who was adoringly highfived by every teen hanging
round the lockers. If you
were more Simon and
Neil, say, than Chad and
Amber, then new research
on those formative years
suggests you'll enjoy better
mental health in later life.
The study, published in the
journal Child Development,
suggests the quality, rather
than quantity, of friendships
during your teenage years
will serve you well. Says
lead author Rachel Narr:
'Experiencing very positive
[relationships] at that point
in life may set the stage in a
powerful way. Adolescence
is a major time of life where
people are developing their
self-concepts, so having a
close friend who helps you
feel good about yourself...
might really set people up
for positive change.' We're
not advocating punching
a fish. Only Neil could
get away with that.

What brings out the
rebel in you?
Experimenting with flavour
combinations - there's so
much to try; I rebel against
the norm with tastes like miso
and chocolate - a revelation!
Which job is scarier?
On a 'danger' level my
policing career wins, but I've
been utterly petrified with
Lifebox too. Running the
first event got my adrenaline
flowing just as much as
tearing through traffic with
blue lights on.
Do you think you'll ever
choose just one?
I love the stability and
teamwork of the police and
the creativity Lifebox allows
me, so for now I will definitely
be a multi-career woman.
At the end of the day,
'stories beat stuff' right?
