For too long, the world has tolerated widespread violence against children that leaves millions of children unsafe in their homes, schools and communities, presenting a significant barrier towards reaching overall development aims. Chad, for example, has the third highest rate of child marriage in the world. Child marriage often compromises a girl's development by resulting in early pregnancy and social isolation, interrupting her schooling, limiting her opportunities for career and vocational advancement and placing her at increased risk of domestic violence... The future of countries like Chad depend on us ensuring that the promises we make to the world's children in September are upheld, and that we fulfil our commitment to ensure that no child is left behind, no matter their circumstance.
The proposed new runway isn't just bad news for people living nearby - it's extremely damaging to our efforts to meet our climate change targets... What Davies hasn't set out in his 344 page report is that there are genuine alternatives to airport expansion.
This season on the elite world of the privileged housewives of Beverly Hills, there is quite the drama stirring! Between new cast members and an old sibling rivalry, we hardly have time to breathe between one dramatic moment and the next.
The continuing misuse of benefit is a human rights abuse where recipients are walled off from democracy and opportunity. But ministers, please reflect on where this culture arose; in the corridors of power itself. And the cure is to be found in work that finally gives this blighted sector of society the chance to catch up on lost time spent in the miasma of benefit.
The upcoming EU referendum in the UK is considered to be almost exclusively an issue for the political Right. It is automatically assumed that left-wing voters and thinkers will vote to stay in. This is not the case. I'm a left-wing voter and I will be voting to leave the EU.
I am authentic in the life I live now as a mindset coach, a speaker, a father, a son, a friend, a partner. I will always live with my past and I do this not by pretending that it does not exist. I carry my story because it exists, not as a burden, but as an acceptance of who I am now and where I have been.
If neither moving left, moving right or staying where they are offer Labour a path back to government what strategy should they adopt? The only way forward is to embrace proportional representation.
There are other fantastic festivals up and down the country, but none of them come close to beating the Eavis family's spectacular. What makes Worthy Farm so special? And how can the organisers of Reading, Isle Of Wight, V et al replicate Glastonbury's success? Fresh from another brilliant weekend, I've got a few ideas...
I've seen so many pets become affected by the soaring temperature. One case sticks in my mind - an Old English Sheepdog that had been left outside a shop. My team of vets and nurses had to work together to save his life and we were lucky - the dog lived. But I've also seen pets that weren't so fortunate.
While Sergio Ramos is one of the finest defenders in the world, should United even be chasing him? Casting the facts aside that this could be a long, drawn out process, is it actually wise to be paying such big money for a player approaching the age of 30?
Drink plenty of water. So you can enjoy the moment your toddler gives you the three second warning that they NEED A WEE RIGHT NOW, RIGHT NOW MUMMY, NOW as you're in the middle of breastfeeding, on a pebble beach, with about 90% of the world's baby equipment spread out on a picnic blanket in front of you, at least half a mile from any kind of public loo...
My habits are out of control and interfering with my life. I probably average three hours a day of binge watching television shows online and, on some days, up to seven hours of serious bingeing on a show.
Why am I making excuses for my baby crying? Babies cry don't they? The do don't they? Mine cry, other people's cry. I'm sure other peoples' cry. Other peoples cry, don't they? Enough of the second guessing: Babies cry. End of. Sometimes you know why, sometimes you don't.
My usual response in stressful situations is to crack a joke and have a laugh, but I found myself embarrassed and on the defence. Just like STDs in your twenties, it turns out nits aren't such a natural source of humour when they happen to you...
With the sun shining brightly and models and celebrities dashing to and from the catwalk shows, I spent most of my time during the British Fashion Council's latest London Collections Men SS16 event wondering two things: How much of what was on the catwalk would my husband wear? Will London Collections Men ever be as successful as the women's collections at London Fashion Week?
So, your mate picked the dress, the colour of your nails, the way your hair is going up, the shoes, the lot. You might not like it or suit it, but you know what, shut up and be happy with it. Your bestie has spent MONTHS planning this day and wants everything just perfect.
Accessorising really is an art. Scary to some and a regularly basked-in element for perhaps a select few, nothing feels as good when it comes to fashion, as accessorising does. And it really doesn't have to be feared. It's just misunderstood.
Up all night, covered in filth, ears constantly ringing... When you think about it, a weekend at Glastonbury is pretty damn close to life at home with toddlers.
The only sensible way forward is to cancel the Greek debt (or at least substantial swathes of it) and for the international community to support Greece's democratically elected government to rebuild its society and its economy.
Britain has become less collective, citizens and consumers feel more empowered and many individual rights - through equal marriage for instance - are better recognised. But - and this is the bad news - much of our economy, society and politics remains thoroughly illiberal and conservative.
This rejection is worth celebrating, but we must not stop campaigning until there is a complete ban on the practice in Britain. Only then can we turn a corner in terms of our energy mix, to focus it on renewables. What we know now is that the fight for climate action can be won.
Had the corporation kept BBC3 on television - where the audience can easily access it - it would have a stronger fighting chance. There is so much content the BBC produces but not all of it gets an evening television slot. Imagine a TV channel that repurposes the videos from Radio 1's Live Lounge, the extensive archive of live festival coverage, and productions by independent writers and producers... But what do I know?
