Running shoes get increasingly high tech, adding in microchips so that they can calculate how much to cushion the impact when the foot touches the ground. For half a century the latest shoes have been heralded as the way to avoid injuries. But could the opposite be the case and it be the shoes that
Although there are very few successful English managers currently plying their trade in the game, there have been some excellent managers in the past, this debate is designed to argue the pros and cons of the English managerial elite.

At the moment Britain goes by Greenwich Mean Time(G.M.T), but in the summer the clocks move forward an hour to give brighter evenings and one hour for people to work in. Moving to British summer time all year would however simplify things and have a multitude of other benefits to the economy.
