Parkrun's policy of allowing runners to self-identify their gender could force women out of elite athletics, a former marathon star has warned. Mara Yamauchi, a former British Olympic runner, said the weekly 5km race (Snip) at amateur level, grassroots, beginner level, females – women and girls – must have fairness. 'If you say that only at professional or elite level do females deserve fairness, but lower down we must be inclusive, that's an appalling message to send to women and girls at those levels. 'That will be very discouraging, demotivating and unfair for them. Some will leave sport altogether and we won't have any elite female athletes in future.'

More than one-third of US adults has prediabetes, a serious condition that can lead to type 2 diabetes. And a whopping 80% of those people don’t even know they have prediabetes, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. But the CDC is pushing back on the rise in type 2 diabetes with a “Be Your Own Hero” initiative aimed at getting people to take a one-minute prediabetes test so they can delay or prevent type 2 diabetes. “Diabetes is a devastating public health problem, and I cannot overstate the toll that it continues to take on millions of people across the United States,” Dr. Christopher Holliday, director of the CDC’s Division

Chicago - A special City Council meeting to discuss Chicago's sanctuary city status descended into chaos Tuesday. The meeting was suspended amid a large contingent of loud and angry demonstrators that had taken over the gallery in the City Council chambers, expressing their displeasure over Chicago's status as a sanctuary city. Some protestors were kicked out of the rules committee meeting, which had to be shut down because nobody could hear what anybody was saying. Last week, there was an attempt to take a vote on an ordinance that would create a referendum on next spring's ballot, allowing the public to decide whether Chicago should continue its status as a sanctuary city.

A furious row has broken out after Metropolitan Police officers were filmed pulling down posters of Israeli children kidnapped by Hamas during the terror group's barbaric October 7 attack. Two officers stripped the outside of Cullimore Chemist in Edgware, North London of flyers of the missing innocents after receiving calls from residents concerned about tension within the community. Some locals in the area, which is home to a sizeable Jewish community, have slammed the officers over their 'disgusting actions'. But the Met has insisted they were merely taking steps to 'stop issues escalating' and to 'avoid community tension'.
