Dangling like a monkey from two industrial nylon straps slung over a workout cage, former professional volleyball player Chad Convis is demonstrating how to do a dazzling array of exercises on a newfangled contraption called the TRX System. Keeping a firm grip on the neoprene-padded handles, the TRX rep leans backward on his heels at a degree angle and does pull-ups, using his own weight like a commando scaling a building. He then stands up, turns around and leans forward into push-ups. Working up a sweat, he moves on to curls, crunches and leg presses. Seeing the strapping 6-footinch, pounder move around his two-car garage like Spider-Man is fairly impressive, but the gear itself, while sturdy, looks like something you could stitch together in a one-hour home economics class.
Ukip's Suzanne Evans fails to get suspension overturned | The Week UK
Former Ukip deputy chairwoman Suzanne Evans has failed to get the High Court to overturn her six-month suspension from the party. The ban, given for an alleged "number of specific complaints", says The Guardian , will stop her running as a candidate in May's London Assembly elections. She had been seeking an injunction preventing the suspension from taking effect until after nominations closed at the end of March. On Wednesday, Ukip confirmed that a disciplinary meeting had found Evans had publicly criticised a fellow candidate and presented herself as a party spokesman without authority. She signed a petition last month calling on the party to deselect London Assembly candidate Alan Craig for making anti-gay remarks. Once tipped to be next Ukip leader, Evans said she was "stunned and distressed" by the decision, which casts a spotlight on the divisions within the anti-EU party. Evans was "dumped yesterday in the latest twist to a vicious civil war blazing in the right-wing group", reports The Sun.
