Ex Corrie star Georgia May Foote asks fans for help with ‘full body agony’ as she reveals health battle

GEORGIA MAY FOOTE has been flooded with support by fans after revealing she wakes up 'in agony' every day. The ex-Coronation Street star asked for help from her Instagram followers after getting sick and tired of waking up in pain.

In a selfie taken from her bed, the 31-year-old star wrote: "Anybody else wake up every morning with their full body in agony? Is this normal at nearly 32? "Honest I crack and my bones hurt every time I wake up it’s so painful." Thankfully, it seems she is far from alone in this, and was soon supported by fans who have been dealing with the same thing. In a second video taken from her car, she said: "Hi everyone! I can’t believe how many people have messaged me saying that as well.

"I don’t think this cold weather helps, or having the heating on. I’ve got a really good mattress, we spent a fortune on a new mattress that was better for us.

I take vitamin D so I don’t think it’s a deficiency in that." Georgia then opened up on what she fears it could possibly be symptoms of, and said: "I think it’s probably linked to the PCOS [polycystic ovary syndrome] that I have, but inflammatory arthritis does run in my family, so I might be going down the same route." "But yeah, I think it’s just one of those things, innit guys? I’m getting old, getting very old! Aching body to match the grey hairs I keep finding," she said. "No, I think a lot of people have suggested going acupuncture or going to a chiropractor, and I always feel like my back needs to be snapped.  Most read in TVNAME REVEAL Sharon Osbourne reveals the name of daughter Kelly’s baby boyRIP Waterloo Road fans livid after favourite character killed off in first episodeshock clue EastEnders fans spot clue that proves who the dad of Lily

Giving school buses green lights improves student safety, reduces fuel consumption: new study
student safety and environmental benefits, according to a new study released Tuesday.Applied Information, a developer of connected, intelligent transportation system solutions, hooked up two school buses, one diesel, and the other propane powered, with Connected Vehicle-to-Everything (C-V2X) technology in Alpharetta, Georgia.The technology allowed the school buses to request green light priority at 62 traffic signals along their routes as they each served students in the Fulton County School System.Data showed that both school buses had "a clear and measurable reduction" in travel time, according to firm Kimley-Horn, which prepared the study report."These solutions applied across the national fleet of approximately 500,000 school buses would prove significant time and fuel savings as well as substantial reductions in CO2 emissions," said Bryan Mulligan, President of Applied Information.Officials also say the technology can help improve student behavior aboard the buses and address the school bus driver shortage that about 86% of the nation’s school districts are experiencing."The pilot showed we can use this technology to make our fleet more efficient and serve more students safely in a shorter amount of time, all while reducing our fuel bill and helping the environment," said Trey Stow, Director of Transportation – Operations for Fulton County Schools.Stow said that the district school buses use roughly around 25,000 gallons of fuel a week.
