An old MILO tin

10 things you never knew about MILO

Here are ten things you never knew about ‘The Food Drink’:

1. MILO was developed for Nestle in the 1930s during the depression, as a direct response to the fact that children were not receiving enough nutrients from their daily diet.

2. MILO is not just loved in Australia – it’s sold in 40 countries worldwide.

3. Over 2 million cans of MILO are produced every year — that’s 480 million cups, which is enough to fill 480 Olympic swimming pools.

4. Aussie MILO is still made in the same factory in Smithtown, NSW, where it was first produced in 1934. 170 people currently work at the factory.

5. Aussie MILO still tastes the same as it always has — the recipe has remained unchanged in Australia since its creation. Around the world, however, the recipe is slightly different — for example, Kiwis have their very own MILO recipe, designed for their taste preferences.

6. A glass of MILO gives you 50 per cent of your recommended daily calcium, iron and vitamin C intake.

7. If it wasn’t for MILO creator Thomas Mayne’s children, the iconic MILO crunch might never have been. Thomas spent hours trying to make MILO dissolve more into milk, but on hearing that his children loved eating the crunchy top layer, he gave up. Thank goodness for that!

8. Thomas’ wife was the original guinea pig for the MILO recipe, as he brought it home for years to perfect the MILO taste before releasing it to the public.

9. MILO is named after the Greek character Milos who was known for his strength. The original cans showed a depiction of a cow the Olympic athlete Milos carried on his shoulders to help build his strength. The story goes that as the heifer grew, so did the athlete.

10. MILO creator Thomas Mayne practised what he preached — he enjoyed a hot MILO every night before bed before he died aged 93.

New ‘iPhone 6’ images leaked online reveal bigger size

NEW leaked photos showing what could be the iPhone 6 have surfaced online.

The rumour wagon rolls on with this latest image showing the front panel of a larger sized device that bears all the hallmarks of an Apple iPhone next to an iPhone 5S.

The leak, reported by 9to5Mac , was posted onto Chinese social networking site Weibo without any additional details apart from the information that it was snapped from within an iPhone ‘factory’.

Giving the picture added weight is the stack of these front panels seen in the bottom right-hand corner of the image, meaning this isn’t a one-off mock-up.

To give this panel an indication of size it is photographed next to an iPhone 5s. In comparison it looks like this is the 4.7-inch model that has been rumoured.

Should this photo have any hint of authenticity it looks like the new handset will have the same proportion of bezel and no edge-to-edge display.

Reports still remain that Apple is intending to release this 4.7-inch version in the third quarter of 2014 and an even larger 5.5-inch model in the fourth quarter.

Earlier this week a picture of two purported iPhone 6 cases of different sizes hit the internet as well as an image of an allegedly genuine iPhone 6 manufacturing mould, which shows it would produce a 4.7-inch model.

While these cannot be touted as official products it simply throws fuel to the fire that there may be two bigger iPhones coming this year.

HOW CAN MEN PERFORM PELVIC FLOOR EXERCISES

Working these muscles has been shown to help with premature ejaculation

To identify the muscles sit relaxed and tighten the muscle around the back passage, as if trying to control wind.
You should be able to feel the muscle move. 
With the correct technique you should feel a dip at the base of the penis, while the scrotum moves up slightly.
To perform the exercises: sit, stand or lie with your knees slightly apart.
Slowly tighten and pull up the pelvic floor muscles as hard as you can for as long as you can.
Rest for four seconds then repeat.
Build up until you can do 10 slow contractions at a time, holding them for 10 seconds each.
Results are only likely to be seen after daily practice for three months. Men Premature (For more information: www.bladderandbowelfoundation.org; 01536 533255)
