DOWNTON ABBEY (PBS, Sunday) Season 5 begins with new blows to Lord Grantham’s self-esteem and the somewhat Victorian touch of an illegitimate baby hidden away in a cottage. For those who haven’t already pirated the British broadcasts or read the recaps, let’s just say that the first episode involves a very heated situation.

Why breakfast is important (and not just for kids)
Breakfast lovers, rejoice! Research indicates your morning nosh could not only support your weight loss efforts, but it could also improve other health markers. Studies have shown that regularly eating breakfast is associated with increased glycemic control — an important factor in the prevention and management of diabetes and its precursor, prediabetes.1 Eating breakfast is also linked to increased mental alertness — and who doesn’t need that, especially in the morning?1
Eating breakfast regularly has also been shown to reduce the risk of obesity and weight gain. For instance, a 2018 study conducted by the Mayo Clinic found that people who eat breakfast daily tend to gain less weight over time than those who eat breakfast irregularly or skip it altogether.2 What’s more, the researchers found that breakfast eaters were more likely to have a smaller waist circumference and less belly fat — also known as visceral fat — the kind that can be detrimental to your health.2
Quick, healthy breakfast ideas that satisfy

We’ve rounded up nine fast, simple meals that will help you start your day right — and help keep you healthy at the same time!

2. Omelet in a mug
Yes, you can enjoy a hot egg breakfast wherever you may be! All you need is a microwave-safe coffee mug, a spritz or two of nonfat cooking spray, a fresh egg or egg substitute, and some spinach or other vegetables of your choice. Whisk the egg and veggies together in the mug (coat it with cooking spray first), microwave for a minute or two, then top with add-ons such as a little avocado, low-fat cheese or salsa. So easy, so yummy and so healthy! (Or try one of Jenny Craig’s simple, delicious egg meals, such as our Cheesy Egg & Bacon Skillet or our Frittata Egg White Sandwich.

6. Overnight oats
There’s nothing simpler than overnight oats! Simply place ½ cup rolled oats, ½ cup milk of your choice, and fruit such as raspberries, chopped apple or mango chunks in a jar and refrigerate overnight — no cooking required! (If you opt for soft fruits, such as berries or mango, we recommend using frozen fruit to help keep them from getting too soggy.) For variety, try adding some nutmeg or vanilla extract, and top with a few unsalted pistachios or pumpkin seeds just before eating for a bit of crunch. (Or try our delicious Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal or our Blueberry & Oats Square for an even simpler breakfast to go!)

A study published in the journal "Clinical Psychological Science" in 2012 showcased the power of self-imagination, which showed the technique could help people with impaired memories, as well as individuals with no memory problems. As with other studies of human memory, the scientists asked participants to remember a list of words related to certain personality traits. The participants were then asked to use a specific strategy to help them recall the words. For example, some participants were asked to remember one personality trait by thinking of a second word that rhymed with the trait. Other participants were asked to remember the definition of the trait while others were asked to engage in "self-referential processing" where they would think about the trait in a personal, self-reflective way.

Yes, even if real GDP growth does not. Speculation over the true GDP growth rate in China, as opposed to the official one, has spawned a cottage industry of specialist economists. The official figures are deceptively stable and serene thanks to suspected “smoothing” by the Chinese authorities, as they bend the figures to fit growth targets. So even if growth does stumble in 2018, the official growth rate is almost certain to come in above the preordained 6.5 per cent.
