Breast cancer survival improving following HRT scares, figures show

Breast cancer survival is significantly improving in the UK following scares over the safety of hormone replacement therapy (HRT), a major international study has found. The analysis reveals Britain’s survival rate has gone from the worst among Europe’s biggest countries to second best in the last five years. Improved screening for middle-aged women is partly the reason, however the authors also credit a reduction in take-up of HRT by menopausal women. The treatment is used to ease uncomfortable...

Where to go in Portugal

Reasons to visit Portugal are innumerable. Some are obvious, like the world-class wines sold at local groceries for little more than the cost of a tram ticket in Lisbon; others are lesser-known, like the country’s wealth of stunning libraries and the places in Porto and Coimbra that inspired details in Harry Potter.

Best doughnuts from around the world

But there may be no single food item that’s made its way into every corner of the world quite like the doughnut. Fried dough has been consumed for long enough to be found as fossilized pieces at ancient Native American sites. These days, it’s everywhere in one variation or another. In fact, forms o...

Fighting Talk: Harley design boss Brad Richards

Harley-Davidson is under a microscope right now: its every move is dissected, examined and critiqued. And there have been plenty of moves lately. They’ve killed the Dyna while relaunching the Softail. They’ve announced a barrage of new models, including the Livewire. But although revenue is holding up at the moment, sales figures have been declining for several years—and were down 10% in 2018. It’s a challenging time for the Motor Company. So I sat down in Milwaukee with Harley’s VP of Styl...
