Time is every woman's most precious commodity—and a lack of it is the number one reason, in survey after survey, that women give for why they don't exercise. But research now shows that as little as 15 minutes of resistance training is just as effective in spiking one's metabolism as a workout lasting more than twice as long. All it takes is 15 minutes to achieve lifelong results—and women are more likely to stick to an exercise plan if it's chopped down to those 15 minutes. The Women's Health Big Book of 15-Minute Workouts is both an introduction to the fundamentals of short workouts and a comprehensive collection of hundreds of the most effective ones. These workouts have been designed for every fitness goal, from total body conditioning to targeting trouble spots with exercises like the 15 Minute Flat-Belly-without-a-Single-Crunch Workout. Other highlights include: - an eating plan with delicious meals that take 15 minutes or less to prepare - workouts for when you're stuck in traffic or traveling and can't make it to the gym - hundreds of tips from America's best trainers, nutritionists, and exercise scientists

This is the second in a series of reports into various aspects of the work of the UK Border Agency. During the late 1990s and early 2000s the Home Office built up a backlog of between 400,000 and 450,000 unresolved asylum cases. The target for clearing this backlog is summer of 2011, and the UKBA has made huge efforts to meet this deadline. However the target seems to have been achieved largely through increasing resort to grants of permission to stay or archiving cases signifying that the applicant cannot be found and the Agency has no idea whether the applicant remains in the UK legally or otherwise. Out of 403,500 cases dealt with by the UK Border Agency (UKBA) since 2006, 40% of applicants have been allowed to stay. This was largely as a result of revised guidance allowing caseworkers to consider granting permission to stay to applicants who had been in the UK for 6-8 years, rather than 10-12 years. Also, in about 74,500 of 400,000 to 450,000 cases - approximately one in six - the UKBA has been completely unable to trace what has happened to the applicant. The Committee considers that this amounts to an amnesty - at considerable cost to the taxpayer. The quality of initial decision making needs to improve to avoid the substantial delays, financial costs and human suffering that occur at present. The Committee also says that the UKBA has not carried out satisfactory checks on employers registered as sponsors of skilled migrants nor has it followed up intelligence of possible illegal migrants

Bradley Wiggins is a British sporting legend. Not only has he won seven World Track Championships and a record-equalling seven Olympic medals, including double-gold in Beijing in 2008 and gold in the time trial in London in 2012, he is the first Briton to have won cycling's ultimate prize, the Tour de France. He is an immensely talented and dedicated endurance athlete with a gritty, down-to-earth persona - cool, outspoken, respected, inspiring - and he has helped to bring track and road cycling to a new audience in the UK. With new material by Brendan Gallagher, co-author of the original edition, this is the story of a boy with bikes in his blood, of a son abandoned by his father and of the journey from council estate to the very pinnacle of the sport. IN PURSUIT OF GLORY is a compelling, no-holds-barred account of Wiggins' rise to global success and an extraordinary insight into the world of cycling.
