• Gloom returns for Man Utd, West Ham deny Norwich vital win

    Manchester United missed the chance to steal a march on the Premier League's top four when an own goal by keeper David De Gea cost them a 2-1 defeat at Premier League strugglers Sunderland on Saturday. With the sides above them all playing each other in a mouth-watering Sunday programme, United could have closed to within three points of fourth-placed Manchester City but the gloom that has enveloped them most of the season returned. Anthony Martial's dinked finish shortly before halftime cancelled out Wahbi Khazri's third-minute opener for Sunderland but United fizzled out after the break and De Gea could only help Lamine Kone's late header into his own goal.

    A plucky little spider has once again proved that size doesn't matter by taking on -- and beating -- a much larger venomous snake, in a very Australian telling of the story of David and Goliath. The spindly Daddy Long Legs spider appeared to have come out on top after going head-to-head with a brown snake in rural New South Wales. Farmer Patrick Lees said he was astonished to discover the expired reptile dangling from a web at his outback home in Weethalle, about 400 kilometres (250 miles) west of Sydney, on Saturday.

  • Outsourcing has led to depressed pay for many low-wage workers: NTUC’s Zainal Sapari

    The outsourcing trend has created market failure, contributing to stagnant and depressed wages for many low-wage workers, said National Trades Union Congress (NTUC) Assistant Secretary-General Zainal Sapari. Outsourcing may make good business sense, but Zainal said it has also led to a situation whereby a winning service provider in a tender typically tries to keep its operating costs down – with labour constituting a major cost component - to service the contract.
