revealed how long it takes to burn off the uks favourite takeaways

New research has revealed how long it takes to burn off some of the UK’s favourite takeaways – and the results may just shock you, 

The government is planning to slim down the UK by including calorie labels on restaurant meals, in an attempt to make us more aware of the foods we are ingesting. 

Interested in what this could look like, My Vital Metrics analysed 15 of Deliveroo’s most delivered takeaway dishes in the past year to discover which are the most calorific – before exploring just how long it would take to burn off the calories in our everyday life by walking, jogging, cycling, cleaning, dancing and gardening.

The research revealed that TGI Fridays Whiskey-Glazed Sesame Chicken Strips contains 1840 calories and would take 371 minutes of walking and 313 minutes of dancing to burn the calories.

Meanwhile, the second most calorific favourite was Crust’s Diavola Pizza, which contains 1260 calories, and Wagamama’s Katsu Curry placed third and would require 104 minutes of cycling to shift the meal. 

The methodology involved analysing Deliveroo’s most ordered takeaways before surveying 2,628 Brits, asking them to choose their favourites from the list, to determine the UK’s top 15. 

Once the top 15 had been decided, MyFitnessPal’s calculator was used to discover how many calories it takes to burn off each meal. 

NHS stats were then used to discover the average weight for males and females in the UK in order to work out the number of calories burned per activity.  

The calories per meal were found using each brands’ nutritional information, with the exception of Crust and Mission Burrito whose nutritional information is not listed officially – they were found using MyFitnessPal and Fitbit’s analysis instead.

Schools in England will be given new powers to appeal student’s GCSE and A-level results

schools in england will be given new powers to appeal students gcse and a level results

Schools in England will be able to appeal their students’ GCSE and A-level results if they can prove grades are lower than expected. 

England’s exams regulator has said schools and colleges can appeal if they can show historical data used to standardise grades is not a reliable indicator of this year’s results due to a change of circumstances.

However, individual pupils will not be allowed to challenge grades themselves, Ofqual has confirmed, and schools and colleges will need to appeal against results on their behalf.

The guidance – published a week before A-level results day – comes after a former private school head warned that not allowing appeals against unfair exam results risks ‘imposing a life sentence’ on some pupils.

It follows chaos in Scotland, where 124,564 pupils were marked down by exam bosses, after teachers ‘tried to give them the highest results in history’.

Education Secretary Gavin Williamson said: ‘It is vital that students with exceptional circumstances are not held back by the way grades have been calculated’

Concerns have been raised that the ‘narrow’ criteria for challenging grades may ‘exacerbate existing inequalities’ and result in legal action against exam boards.

It comes after this summer’s exams were cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Instead, schools and colleges were asked to submit the grades they thought students would have received if they had sat the exams.

However, it was revealed last week that statistical modelling will be used to determine the majority of this year’s A-level and GCSE results, rather than predicted grades from teachers. 

Exam regulator Ofqual announced the government u-turn after concerns regarding the reliability of teacher-predicted grades were raised.  

The new statistical model will take into account a number of factors, including pupils’ previous attainment, results of previous students at the same school and the predicted grades teachers submitted in March. 

Now, new guidance by Ofqual sets out how schools and colleges can appeal GCSE and A-level grades, which students are set to receive over the next fortnight.

Schools and colleges can appeal if they were expecting results this year to ‘show a very different pattern of grades’ to results in previous years because of the ability profile of students this year.

If a school has had a ‘significant change in leadership or governance’ – and it can provide evidence that its previous grades are ‘not a reliable indicator’ of this year’s results – it will also be allowed to challenge results.

If a single-sex school has changed to co-educational – or a school has experienced a ‘monumental event’ such as flooding or fire which meant it had to move and it affected previous exam results – then they can appeal grades.

There are concerns that results day next week could be chaotic as thousands of teenagers may receive 'unfair' marks (stock image)

Schools and colleges can appeal to the exam board if it believes it made an error when submitting a grade or if it believes an exam board made a mistake.

Pupils can ask their school or college to check whether it made an administrative error when submitting their grade – and they can ask them to submit an appeal to the exam board if it did.

Students will not be able to directly appeal their calculated grades to the exam boards, but they can submit allegations about bias or discrimination.

Ofqual has advised students to complain to their college or school in the first place about potential malpractice. If their concerns are not addressed, pupils can formally complain to the exam board.

Students in England who are unhappy with their grades will also have the opportunity to take A-level exams in October and GCSE exams in November. 

Education Secretary Gavin Williamson said: ‘It is vital that students with exceptional circumstances are not held back by the way grades have been calculated – including those who are highly talented in schools that have not in the past had strong results, or where schools have undergone significant changes such as a new leadership team.

‘This appeals process does this. Students will also have the opportunity to take exams this autumn if they are unhappy with their grades.’

Not allowing pupils the right to appeal GCSE or A-Level exam grades they think are unfair had earlier been linked to imposing a ‘life sentence’. 

There are concerns that results day next week could be chaotic as thousands of teenagers may receive ‘unfair’ marks. 

Dr Martin Stephen, the former High Master of St Paul’s Boys’ School told The Daily Telegraph the system was equivalent to ‘imposing a life sentence, with no right of appeal’.

The new guidance comes after outrage in Scotland where the grade moderation process reduced the pass rate of the poorest Higher pupils by more than twice that of the richest. 

The Scottish Qualifications Authority downgraded the students’ marks for the exams that were not sat, changing a massive 93.1 per cent of all the moderated scores.

Chief Examining Officer Fiona Robertson said if the SQA had not stepped in exam pass rates would have risen at every level and would have been the highest on record.

Pensioners shout at passenger without mask to ‘get off the bus’

pensioners shout at passenger without mask to get off the bus

Angry pensioners and passengers got into a heated row with a man after he got on a bus without wearing a face mask.

The argument was filmed by a passenger on board the number 82 Arriva bus to Speke, Liverpool, on Wednesday evening.

In the video, a group of pensioners can be seen shouting at the man to ‘get off the bus’ after describing him as ‘a danger’.

One woman, who is wearing a red skirt, stands up and points in the direction of the door as she loudly confronts the man, who is wearing a grey suit.

She says: ‘I’m not putting up with this, I’m not doing it. Get off the bus.’

At one point in the video, the driver is heard saying ‘come on mate’ and suggesting the man instead gets on the bus behind. 

The woman in the red skirt tells the man: ‘Off, off, off,’ while an older woman says: ‘You’re a danger, you’re a danger.’

Other pensioners also join in, demanding that the man should get off the bus and even calling on the driver to kick him off.

But the driver eventually shuts the doors and leaves the bus stop, explaining to the passengers that he has a timetable to meet. 

Passenger Ethan, who witnessed and recorded what happened, told the Liverpool Echo: ‘A man got on the number 82 to Speke from Earl Street, Dingle way, without a mask and he wouldn’t wear a mask.

‘The whole bus was telling him to get off the bus because he wouldn’t wear a mask.’ 

Angry pensioners also got involved in the confrontation, calling on the driver to kick the passenger off the bus for not wearing a mask

The Government regulations regarding face masks on public transport came into force in England on June 15, requiring all passengers to wear some form of face covering on buses and trains. 

Those not wearing a face covering on public transport can be fined or even refused entry to public transport.

A spokesperson for bus operator Arriva said: ‘The safety of our customers and employees continues to be our priority. The wearing of face coverings continues to be mandatory for customers whilst using public transport (exemptions apply).

‘We have clear guidance and signage for customers in regards to this and all other social distancing measures in place on bus, via social media and our website for more information please visit arrivabus.co.uk.’

The driver eventually left the bus stop, explaining to the travellers that he had a timetable to adhere to, despite the angry calls for the passenger to 'get off the bus'

 The Arriva website also states that everyone has a ‘legal obligation’ to follow face covering rules.

It reads: ‘All of our drivers in England have been advised to inform our customers who are not wearing a face covering on boarding the bus, that they are required to do so by law, throughout their entire journey, unless they are exempt.

‘If a customer is not exempt and refuses to wear a face covering, then our drivers have been instructed to explain to the customer that they are breaking the law and that the police have powers to impose a fine of up to £100. 

‘Our drivers report all failures to comply with Government policy to their Depot Management team to allow us to closely monitor the situation and advise the authorities.’

This incident follows an argument on another Liverpool bus, when two passengers became involved in a loud confrontation about a woman failing to wear a face covering.

According to witnesses, a number of passengers began criticising a younger passenger for not wearing a mask, leading to others jumping in to defend her.

One witness said: ‘A man and an older woman started ganging up on her and a massive row erupted. 

‘The bus driver had to get out of his seat and came over to demand what was going on and he told one woman she wasn’t even wearing her mask properly.’ 

Individuals who are exempt from wearing face masks include those with breathing difficulties and respiratory conditions, people with mental health conditions and those with other non-visible disabilities.

dog stands still for over a minute in hilarious stand off with frog

This is the funny moment a dog keeps incredibly still for over a minute while attempting to hunt a frog.

Denver, a four-year-old Vizsla from New Hampshire, spotted the frog in a pond while out on a walk with his owner, Angie Miller. 

He froze, staring at the frog very intensely until he finally tried to catch it – but the speedy amphibian jumped clear of his jaws.

Owner Angie was out for a walk on July 29 when Denver caught sight of a frog perched on some reeds in the pond close to their house.

The video shows the dog freezing as he aims his nose at the frog, completely transfixed for well over a minute. 

The intense pose he holds is called a ‘point’, and is performed by hunting dogs to draw their owner’s attention to their quarry.

His owner finds it extremely funny and laughs at her dog, saying: ‘You’re ridiculous.’ 

While Denver’s nose twitches with excitement, he maintains his pose for one minute and twenty seconds.

Finally, with a lick of his tongue, Denver pounces.   

However, the frog is too quick for him and escapes his jaws.  

Angie said: ‘Vizsla are hunting dogs, so we’ve seen him point before, but never like this!  

Vizslas are a Hungarian medium-sized, energetic breed. They are natural hunters endowed with an excellent nose.

They have a friendly nature, enjoy human company and are easy to train.
