Asos, the online fashion retailer, continued to deliver "scorching" sales in its first quarter, as it emerged that its chief executive has pocketed nearly £15m by selling a fifth of his stake. Nick Robertson, who co-founded Asos in 2000, has sold 1.68 million shares at 890p, which has reduced his shareholding to 10.3 per cent, according to a regulatory filing yesterday. He said its international sales, which grew by 111 per cent for the quarter to 30 June, were "on fire". Mr Robertson cited strong growth in Germany, France and the US.

Deborah Ross: 'Making your own jam will save you having to go to the corner shop to buy it, which can take nearly two minutes'
Saturday 01 May 2010
If you ask me about making your own jam – it is "very back in fashion", according to a Sunday magazine – I will tell you that I've looked into it and have discovered that all you need are the following: jars, lids, thermometers, a funnel, a ladle (all sterilised), a preserving pan the size of a garage, oodles and oodles and oodles and oodles of fruit (with pith, stalks, leaves and pips removed) and something called "jam sugar" which isn't normal sugar, because it is jam sugar, and therefore the best sugar for jam.

Meet the Tarahumara, a tribe of Mexican Indians. If you can catch them up, that is, because they're the best distance runners in the world, who think nothing of blasting off on a 48-hour run after an all-night drinking session.
