Londoners are the ‘UK’s worst neighbours’ apparently

Oh dear.

There are heaps of reasons to live in London – the best breakfasts and nail salons and afternoon tea! Plus, London Dog week is a thing.

But there’s one thing you might not want to move to the capital for – and it’s not the cost of renting for once.

It’s your potential neighbours. A new study reveals that they’ve been voted the worst in the UK and dubbed the least considerate individuals.

The research, conducted by Duette, surveyed 2,400 Brits over the age of 18 who rented or owned their homes. It found that Londoners were rated a measly 4.1/10 when it comes to considerate neighbours, and deemed the least likely to start a conversation with those on their street.

On the other hand, those in Cardiff believe that their neighbours are more than adequate, scoring an impressive 8.1/10. Why? Because they’re more likely to help each other out by checking on their homes while away on holiday or watering plants.

Here are the cities that came out on top when it comes to considerate neighbours:

Cardiff – 8.1/10

Manchester – 7.9/10

Gloucester – 7.7/10

Exeter – 7.5/10

Worcester – 7.4/10

Newcastle – 7.2/10

Truro – 7.1/10

Norwich – 7/10

Birmingham – 6.8/10

Leeds – 6.7/10

Reading – 5.4/10

Liverpool – 5/10

Glasgow – 4.8/10

Bristol – 4.5/10

London 4.1/10

The study looked to find the most mindful communities in the UK.

Sunny Matharu, a Duette spokesperson said: ‘Having nice neighbours can make a huge difference; not only can you turn to them for help when you need it, such as when you go away, but it’s always someone to smile and wave at, sometimes talk to, and you never know who’s day you might be making by being kind.

‘Bad neighbours are never ideal, especially when all involved are arguing. For the sake of all involved, any issues should be discussed and resolved – it shouldn’t lead to someone having to up and move in order to feel settled and comfortable.’

“Israel Was The Worst Look For Me” Adrienne Houghton Talks About Being Led To Her Husband By The Holy Spirit And Not Logic

Bloggers Who Brunch x Adrienne Bailon Event

In a very spiritual and conversation, Adrienne Houghton spoke with Angelica Nwandu, founder of The Shade Room, to discuss holding to your faith in light of disappointment, particularly in waiting for God to give you the desires of your heart.

Angelica shared that she desired marriage so strongly, she placed it over her relationship with God. Nwandu said that her desire for marriage and God’s withholding of it, put her in a depressed state.

“Here I was. I came from having no money, facing eviction, living in Hawthorne. And then God brought me to a place of I don’t worry about money, I was able to buy a house. All these things were happening for me and I could not be grateful because the one thing. I used to tell God, ‘Yeah, that’s cool but you know what I really want. You know the desire. You know what I really asked for. Why give me the secondary things, give me the number one thing that I wanted.” And I started to think God was spiteful. For some reason in my head, I started thinking, ‘Ima be 60 and I’m never going to be married because God knows that’s the one thing that I want.’ Now I look back, if I had a husband, I would be in divorce court. I had a lot of things I had to work on. He was keeping me from ruining myself and a promise that he had for me.”

The host of the show, Stephanie Ike spoke about expectations not being met in relationships and Adrienne shared this.

“For me one of my lowest points was relationship things. Especially in my twenties. Oh my twenties sucked. They were awful. And a lot of it had to do with wanting to be loved. I was looking for this love and I love really hard and so I expected that in return. And when I wouldn’t receive that love in return it was incredibly hurtful. Even making the decision of breaking an engagement, not only was that depressing but it’s embarrassing. Moments like that can make you feel so low. There’s so many things you think of in that moment that literally make you feel like, ‘God, why do you feel so far from me.’

I know that I know that I know that I have a praying mom. And I know that I know that I know that God had spoken to me and told me that that was not the man for me. But I wanted that. I was on some, ‘I been through too much. I deserve it. I want it.’

For me, the sadness was that it was the end of an era. Something that I wanted so bad wasn’t for me.

I even went through a period where I would talk to my mom and I would have an angry moment with her. Like, ‘Why did you love me the way I did when I was child?’ I was told ‘You’re beautiful.’ I was told I was loved everyday and then when I went to seek that in relationships, I wasn’t receiving that. I even had a guy so much as tell me, ‘I don’t tell you you’re pretty because you know you’re pretty.’

 

Angelica: Does Israel tell you, you’re pretty.

Adrienne: Every single day. But it didn’t come in the package I thought it was. You know how much wrong was wrong with him? Had I gone off of logic, I would never be as happy as I am today. I went against everything that logically made sense. I’m not an idiot. I’m not stupid. I read everything you read. I genuinely felt led by the Holy Spirit. This is the one for you. For people who were perfect, who had no ex wives, no children, but I would feel repellant toward them. They were on paper and what the public would have thought would have been perfect for me, they were repellant to my spirit.

Israel was the worst look I ever could have gone with. I was the worst look for him. He was the worst look for me. But in the storm. What looked like circus to everyone else, we were at home like this— leans back in a chilled position.

Countries with the worst traffic in the world

ADVERTISEMENT


If there’s one thing that many of us can’t stand it’s sitting in traffic. Sure, it starts out as a time to people watch or sing along to the radio, but it can soon see even the best of us lose our cool. We just want to get home! If you’re sick of looking at tail lights, then you might want to avoid the countries with the worst traffic in the world.

The U.S.

It might be no surprise to hear that the U.S. has some of the worst traffic in the world after learning that Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco, and Miami are all listed in the top 10 most congested cities. In fact, LA takes the top spot on the planet. It’s thought the small streets teamed with the number of people – in between the many tourists that visit the country every year – are all contributing factors to the traffic issue.

Thailand

While Thailand might be on many people’s bucket lists of places to visit, it seems as though you might spend the majority of the time sat in the car judging by their traffic issues. Although there is a driving test, which is prepared for through lessons around a driving obstacle course, most of the problems on the roads appear to be caused by people driving just about however they like – including blocking intersections for hours.

China

Although China has become famous for their incredible public transport system, it seems as though many residents still prefer to hit the open road – or enjoy sitting in traffic on it at least. Many reports state how car ownership is rapidly increasing across the country, while many of the cities are filled with complex road systems and a network of underground tunnels that appear to try and make things as confusing for drivers as possible.

Mexico

Mexico City has the highest population in North America, and it’s thought that people could spend hours on their daily commute. In fact, studies have shown how most drivers in the city will spend a whopping 219 hours stuck in traffic each and every year. As well as losing days of their lives to the heavy traffic throughout the country, all that extra time on the road is said to be one of the major factors of the country’s rising pollution issues.

Romania

Romania is a beautiful country, and you’ll get plenty of time to enjoy it from behind the wheel of your car as you sit in hours of traffic. The capital, Bucharest, is thought to be the worst affected area, especially at rush hour. Parking is free throughout the city while the public transport system leaves plenty to the imagination, both of which have become a recipe for plenty of backlogs throughout the twisting streets of the city.

While many of us love the idea of hitting the open road, it seems as though we might want to avoid the countries with the worst traffic in the world if we’re going to put our pedal to the metal.

Celebrity Astrology Experts Reveal The Four Worst Zodiac Couples

 

A page from a US newspaper shows the hor

Source: EVA HAMBACH / Getty

via MadameNoire.com:

Some romances just aren’t written in the stars. Literally. Celebrity astrologists for Bustle , Kristin West and Skye Alexander, reveal the zodiac couples that are destined to have the worst relationships. Of course, compatibility ultimately falls on a couple’s ability to manage each other’s differences and make compromises–but these zodiac signs have fundamental issues that are prone to clash.

Aries & Scorpio 

According to astrologists, this pairing spells drama.

“They’re both heavily influenced by Mars, the planet of conflict,” West says.

“Aries is very straightforward while Scorpio tends to keep things hidden or in reserve,” West says. “Over time, it can even lead to trust issues, especially since both signs may find themselves attracted to others. Inciting jealousy could be a big issue for this coupling as well,” West says.

Taurus & Sagittarius  

These two clash where stability meets wild.

“Taurus folks tend to be homebodies who enjoy stability and creature comforts, whereas Sagittarians are wanderers and adventurers,” Skye Alexander, astrologer and author of Magickal Astrology, told Bustle.

Leo & Capricorn

This couple battles with resentment and jealousy.

“Leo, ruled by the sun, “likes to be recognized as the leader, but Capricorn, ruled by Saturn, is a workaholic [and] likes to pay their dues and put in their time,” West said to Bustle.

“Both want to be ‘on top’ but Capricorn often feels like Leo hasn’t earned it or that Leo’s dazzling personality sometimes gives them an unfair advantage — all flash and no substance.”

Cancer & Aquarius 

This couple’s fundamental values compete with each other.

“Cancer people are traditionalists, who find security in the status-quo,” Alexander told Bustle.

“Aquarians are free spirits, who look to the future.”

‘You’re the Worst’ Final Season: Can TV’s Funniest ‘Anti-Rom-Com’ Really End in Wedded Bliss?

This Wednesday night’s fifth and final season premiere of You’re the Worst opens with a meet-cute at a video rental store between two characters we’ve never met before.

The guitar on the soundtrack and posters on the wall for Speed, The Full Monty and Independence Day—as well as the fact that we’re in a video rental store—let us know that we’re somewhere in the mid-to-late ’90s. “Where’s Space Jam?” one customer asks Jake, a grungy clerk who prefers French New Wave over Hollywood new releases. The romance begins when a young film student enters the store and bonds with him over their shared love of obscure cinema.

Their story, which at first has seemingly nothing to do with the couple at the center of this FXX series, moves through loving homages to movies like Empire Records and Notting Hill before arriving at its unambiguously happy ending. And it was all part of creator Stephen Falk’s attempt to see if he could pull off a classic romantic comedy.

Ranking Every Adult Animated Netflix Series from Worst to Best

Netflix is home to some of the most raunchy, gut-busting, hard-hitting adult animation out there. That’s old news. But which one of Netflix’s original animated offerings is the most popular amongst animation fans? More importantly, which series should you be bingeing right now?

Luckily, here at FANDOM, we have the largest collection of fan data in the entire world. So, we can definitively tell you which series is truly the best of the best, based on cold hard data. Looking at the total number of wiki page views, here are all of Netflix’s original adult animated series ranked from least to most popular.

#7 – Super Drags

With a whopping 266 wiki page views comes a brand new series fresh from Brazil — Super Drags. This quirky cartoon follows the lives of three gay co-workers who moonlight as superhero drag queens fighting the terrible forces of shade.

Netflix released this fierce series earlier this month to mixed reviews. It’s relatively new on the scene, so that could explain it’s shockingly low ranking. Super Drags deserves better than last place.

This fabulous cartoon is stuffed with sassy queer commentary and we are here for it. If you like Drag Race or Queer Eye, you should definitely try this show on for size. (Drag Race fans might even recognize the familiar voices of Shangela and Trixie Mattel.) Super Drags has some pretty great Powerpuff Girls vibes, but don’t let that fool you. It’s 100% not suitable for children.

#6 – Pacific Heat

Pacific Heat, an Australian animated cop show, garnered a pitiful 1,486 wiki page views. This series centers on an undercover and underqualified police unit, tasked with toppling drug dealers and international terrorists. It’s basically an unfunny version of Archer from down under.

Pacific Heat has been on the beat for a couple of years now, so it’s safe to assume it ranks so low because it’s just not good. There’s no way of sugar-coating it. Pacific Heat is riddled with thin plots, inconsequential characters, and flat humor. No #FOMO here. Skip over this one. Or better yet, watch Archer instead.

#5 – Paradise PD

Brickleberry fans will appreciate this next one. Coming in fifth place, with a modest 25,092 wiki page views, is another animated cop show, Paradise PD. It’s almost as if Netflix ordered this series to make up for the preceding pick because everything Pacific Heat does wrong Paradise PD does oh, so right.

Paradise PD’s stellar voice cast sets this series apart from the competition.  Performances by Scrubs alum Sarah Chalke, Reno 911 alum Cedric Yarbrough, and SpongeBob SquarePants himself, Tom Kenny really stand out. They will make you laugh until you cry, and groan and scream.

This series is also fairly new, so maybe after a couple of seasons, its ranking will reflect its sheer brilliance. This show is equal parts absurd and hilarious, a recipe for great comedy. If you were a fan of Reno 911 or The State or Superjail, then this show is definitely for you.

#4 – F Is For Family

F is for Family secures its spot in the middle of the pack at 215,203 wiki page views. This dark comedy turns the middle-American sitcom genre on its head. We dare you not to laugh at this beautifully crude portrayal of a remarkably dysfunctional family.

Perhaps it would be more popular if it were more unique. F is for Family almost feels like an off-color King of the Hill or Family Guy without its iconic non sequitur moments. That being said, it goes much further than these network shows. We’re talking Newgrounds level vulgarity.

#3 – Disenchantment

We’re not shocked that the newest series to come from animation royalty, Matt Groening, is so far down the totem pole at third place with 747,226 wiki page views. Disenchantment premiered a few months back and received polarizing reviews. Like marmite, you either love it or hate it.

Disenchantment has been described as Futurama set in fantasy land, but it’s so much more than that. However, it’s hard to ignore the striking similarities between the two shows. They both use a lot of the same tropes, gags, and voice actors. We should also note that this series is tame compared to the other selections on this list. If you were a huge fan of The Simpsons and Futurama, then you should probably give this one a watch.

#2 – Big Mouth

Coming in second place with 900,563 wiki page views is Big Mouth. Nick Kroll and John Mulaney, the same comedic duo that brought us Oh Hello Broadway, take us back to the awkward, sweaty, shame-filled years of puberty in this hilariously raunchy show.

We highly recommend watching Big Mouth with subtitles because you will not be able to hear everything over the sound of your unending laughter. Comedy legends Jordan Peele, Maya Rudolph, and Will Arnett, to name a few, lend their voices to a star-studded cast. It’s currently in its sophomore season on Netflix, which earned the series a coveted 100% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. If you haven’t already seen Big Mouth, watch it immediately.

#1 – Bojack Horseman

It’s no surprise that Netflix’s flagship adult animated series comes in first place with 3,556,620 wiki page views. Bojack Horseman is currently in its fifth season, and like fine wine, the show keeps getting better over the years. Bojack Horseman chronicles the life of a washed-up Hollywood celebrity who goes through a personal renaissance while battling addiction and a myriad of mental health issues.  You wouldn’t immediately peg that plot description as comedy, but Bojack is so funny it hurts.

Bojack Horseman is more than one of the best animated series out there, it is one of the best pieces of television, period. The absolutely brilliant creative risks taken by the creative team completely pay off time and time again.  This show is disrupting modern storytelling as we know it.  One could argue that Bojack‘s tenure on Netflix puts the series at the top of this list, over other very deserving shows. However, in this writer’s opinion, Bojack Horseman truly is the best of the best.

Consumer Group Releases ‘Worst Toys’ List For Holidays

BOSTON (AP) — A Black Panther “slash claw” and a plastic Power Rangers sword are among the toys topping a consumer safety group’s annual list of worst toys for the holiday season.

Massachusetts-based World Against Toys Causing Harm, or W.A.T.C.H., unveiled its list Tuesday at a Boston children’s hospital.

A Nerf gun, a Cabbage Patch Kids doll and a xylophone for infants also made the list.

The nonprofit organization’s president, Joan Siff, says many of the toys represent choking, eye and other safety hazards that surface year after year.

But the Toy Association, a toy industry trade group, says the annual list is biased and inaccurate. The association says W.A.T.C.H. does not test the toys.

W.A.T.C.H. has been releasing its list for more than four decades.

It’s no secret that there are a lot of things that can potentially impact your overall health. What food you eat, what habits you adopt or drop, and even how much sleep you get can have serious impacts on your wellbeing, but a new study by cardiologists reveals that of all the things you can do that might negatively impact your health, a sedentary lifestyle is the most deadly.

The research, which was published in JAMA Network Open, surveyed a whopping 122,007 patients between early 1991 and late 2014. The doctors recorded fitness levels of the individuals and then followed up to track mortality rates. The numbers were, as one of the authors of the paper put it, “extremely surprising.”
