ROBOT REPORTER One of Sweden’s most efficient news reporters is actually a robot. Since 2016, Swedish local news publisher MittMedia has used an artificial intelligence program called Homeowners Bot. The bot writes short stories about every home sale in small Northern Sweden communities where MittMedia owns several newspapers. Before the Homeowners Bot began writing articles, MittMedia simply published tables of recently bought and sold properties. However, now the bot analyzes the tables and writes about the sales using an interesting angle. By employing an AI program, the publisher can save their flesh and blood reporters for larger stories and their readers are offered a compelling read instead of a spreadsheet. MittMedia isn’t the only news source experimenting with AI. The Washington Post has a bot called Heliograf that publishes briefs about a variety of topics, while the BBC has a chatbot that suggests further content to readers. IS HEALTHY EATING THE LATEST SOCIAL MEDIA STAR? Healthy eating is on the rise and some experts claim it’s thanks to social media. Sites such as Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest are loaded with healthy recipes and photos of beautifully displayed foods. It’s so easy to become inspired by all the healthy and fresh eats plus the “you can do it too” attitude encourages others to give healthy eating a try. One area of healthy eating that has seen a lot of interest thanks to social media is veganism. Once dismissed as an over-the-top lifestyle, social media has shown that eating less animal products is actually quite easy to do – and also quite delicious. Of course, healthy meat-based dishes also have their place amongst the kale and quinoa. Because when it comes to healthy eating and social media, there’s something for everyone! LIVING NEAR NATURE LEADS TO LONGER LIFE EXPECTANCY A new report from the University of East Anglia confirms what many have known all along – exposure to the natural world extends a person’s life expectancy. The report was compiled from the results of 140 different studies involving 290 million people and concluded that living in or close to green space reduces the risk of Type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and increases sleep duration – amongst other benefits.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED: Container with multiple compartments Sandwich mold Vegetable cutters Wooden skewers and toothpicks Stock your fridge and pantry with these items and you'll be able to mix and match lots of delicious lunch combinations every week. LUNCH COMBINATIONS: 1. Sandwiches don’t have to be boring! • Use shaped sandwich molds • Cut them up and put them on a skewer

• You can even roll them up! Just flatten out regular bread with a rolling pin, apply toppings, roll up, cut and serve like sushi. • Skip the bread altogether and use whole-wheat rolls instead. Serve with a salami and cheese stick or a cucumber and tomato stick. 2. One of the easiest ways to entice any kid to eat a good lunch is by using colour. Fresh fruits and vegetables are a great choice but even pickles and dried fruit work too. 3. Don't forget cheese and crackers. Use veggie cutters to cut out fun shapes and throw the salami on a stick. 4. Keep dried fruit and nuts on hand. They keep for months and they're easy to grab. Try: edamame, trail mix, banana chips, prunes, raisins, plain peanuts and more.
