Wrestling's notorious bad boy now lives quiet life after health scares – and hurricanes

muscular physique which, as Aussie chat show host Clive James once famously described Arnold Schwarzenegger, best resembles "a condom stuffed with walnuts".Meet Adrian Street – aka The Merchant of Menace – who was once the wrestling world's most notorious bad boy and is now mowing his lawn into submission and putting unruly weeds in a headlock.Now 81, but still impossibly buff for his age, he explained how injury, cancer and hurricanes all contributed to him bidding farewell to his physically-punishing lifestyle in the States for some well deserved down-time back home in the UK."I knew that one day I'd have had enough, and I dreaded it like death itself," said the grandad and dad-of-three."Then, one day, I was driving 400 miles across country to a show and watching the white lines in the middle of the road whizz past. I just realised, 'That's it, no more'."After more than 50 years and about 15,000 bouts I was done."I retired undefeated in 2010 after having just won the NWA Alabama heavyweight title at 70.

So I'd bowed out under my own terms, which is how I do everything."And by that point he'd already suffered numerous potentially career-ending scrapes, such as a torn Achilles' tendon - not to mention a life-threatening illness."I was diagnosed with cancer in 2001 after I kept coughing up blood," he added from his home in Cwmbran, South Wales - roughly 16 miles from where he grew up in the small Valleys town of Brynmawr."The doctor said 'I'm going to give it to you straight - you're not going to make it through his one. You better go home and put your affairs in order'."I just told him I wasn't going anywhere because there were still people in the world I'd not p****d off yet.

The universe is expanding more quickly than previously thought, scientists say
universe is expanding more quickly than previously believed, and scientists aren’t really sure why. A recent study, which is set to be published in the Special Focus issue of The Astrophysical Journal, said that new results more than double the prior sample of cosmic distance markers used to measure the expansion of the universe. Nobel Laureate Adam Riess of the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) and his team, along with the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, "reanalyzed all of the prior data, with the whole dataset now including over 1,000 Hubble orbits." Hubble orbits mean the number of times the Hubble Space Telescope orbits the Earth, which is what was used to collect over 20 years’ worth of data to result in these recent findings. "You are getting the most precise measurement of the expansion rate for the universe from the gold standard of telescopes and cosmic mile markers," Riess said. When comparing measurements from previous data and the current data, Riess’ team found that the rate at which the universe is expanding was off. Previous measurements predicted the universe was expanding at a rate of 67.5 plus or minus 0.5 kilometers per second per megaparsec, according to NASA. However, Riess’ team showed the universe is actually expanding 73 plus or minus 1 kilometer per second per megaparsec, which predicts the size of the universe will double in about 10 billion years. "The funny thing is, it doesn’t match the prediction.

I don’t know.

Fitness star makes history by flaunting baby bump on Women’s Health cover
pregnant.Her husband Ed Kavalee is also starring on the front page of Men’s Health Australia..This is the couples second child and it is due in the next few weeks.Tiff said she felt “honoured and empowered to be the first pregnant woman to ever grace a @womenshealthaus magazine cover”, writing it was once “taboo to show your bump”.“Over my 20 years of experience in the health and fitness industry, I have seen it evolve into a landscape that now embraces the beauty of pregnancy as well as post-partum bodies,” she wrote on Instagram.“It was once taboo to show your bump in tight clothing – let alone a naked bump – or even as I have … exercising and staying active while pregnant.“I’m proud of my strong pregnant body and believe the bump and a woman’s ever-changing body should be celebrated in all its glory at every shape, size and stage of life.”Tiff had a very difficult pregnancy with her first child and gained 30kg (around 4.7st).She has been very vocal about tackling “bounce back culture”, even giving a Ted Talk on the topic back in 2019.“As much as there’s pressure after you have the baby to ‘bounce back’, you don’t have to have that toxic positivity [mindset] all the time where you’re just loving every minute … Just take that pressure off, bounce forward. Prioritise your own self-care,” she said.Fans of Tiff’s have been quick to commend the fitness star for her positive message, describing the mum-of-one as “a wonderful role model”.“Love this.
