What pitfalls do early-stage startups need to be aware of within in the travel & hospitality industry? The pitfalls are by and large the same as in any industry; have a clear mission and solve an actual problem in a unique way without forgetting about the whole 'how it makes money' bit.
Labour started their conference by voting not to debate Brexit, and finished it with Jeremy Corbyn hardly mentioning it in his closing speech. Unfortunately it seems that on the biggest issue facing the country, Corbyn's Labour has thrown in the towel. Here was a quiet man turning down the volume, especially on Europe. Crucially, the Labour leader confirmed he won't fight for Britain's membership of the Single Market, which is vital for jobs and our economic future. Instead he called for "access" to the European market. But that could mean anything. The reality is that anything less than full membership of the Single Market, as the British car industry today made clear, would risk doing serious damage to jobs and our economy.
We want a democracy that works for everyone: if we are to achieve this, then the principle of equal-seats, effectively restoring the principle of one-member one-vote, ending historic inequalities in our electoral map, must be delivered by a Conservative government.
I first visited Colombia 10 years ago, when covering the demobilisation of right-wing paramilitary groups that had emerged some two decades earlier to fight Marxist guerrilla soldiers. Since then, I have remained very attached to Colombia and its fate. This month, and a decade on from my first visit, the Colombian government has signed a historic peace agreement...
The museum's latest exhibition Fashion on the Ration: 1940s Street Style looks at the creative and thrifty responses to clothes rationing during the Second World War. Not only were the clothes of this time a triumph in colour, creativity and durability, there are some real lessons we can learn from the era where make do and mend was a necessity.
Research has emerged that suggests bullying could be more detrimental to a child's mental health than physical abuse. A US study of 1,420 children found that those who had been bullied, but not maltreated, were almost four times more likely to have mental health problems than children who were maltreated... So why do we continue to diminish the effect bullying has on children's mental health?
So the first question we all had, was what the week actually is. Botanical means that the bakes have to contain something that grows. So... most bakes. Or, they can be something with floral decorations. So... any bake. Woah. Really putting the pressure on this high caliber of bakers. You'd think hash brownies or a magic mushroom loaf would make an appearance - but not a sniff.
It seems when the youngest started school people became awfully interested in her life. People that couldn't have cared less how she passed her time at home with small people in tow suddenly want to know. But do they really? Do they really want to know why she's still at home? What she does all day?
Profit before ethics. I faced this dilemma every day, at every level. A subsequent petty battle over the provision of fair trade tea in the staff canteen was farcical but the message was obvious. If anybody wanted to change things at a high street fashion company they would be banging their heads against a brick wall.
Nothing about Ranieri's side would actually surprise, at this point. Lose 14 in a row and go down? Sure. Win every single game 1-0 from now until Christmas, with a different scorer each time? Why not - they won the league last season.
As the great American poet Langston Hughes put it: "I see that my own hands can make the world that's in my mind". Everyone here and every one of our hundreds of thousands of members has something to contribute to our cause. That way we will unite, build on our policies. Take our vision out to a country crying out for change. We are half a million of us, and there will be more, working together to make our country the place it could be. United we can shape the future and build a fairer Britain in a peaceful world.
Turkey, a country of 76million people, which borders Syria and Iraq, will be a full member of the European Union by 2020. By 2024, a million Turks will have moved to the United Kingdom. And a few years after that, armed Turkish gangs will be marauding through sleepy British towns and villages. That was the message the Vote Leave campaign...
It isn't steps like safe spaces or no platforming adopted by our students which have stopped "innovation of thought" and threatened how we "develop as a country, society and economy" as May suggested. For that the Prime Minister should take a look at herself and her government.
In truth, the Hillary haters seem to resent her more than disagree with her. They demand to be humored and catered to. They hold her to wildly different standards than her male counterparts.
The tragedy behind Iraj's story is shared by millions of Syrians displaced by the ongoing conflict. The numbers related to this crisis are so big, it can be hard to think of them as individual stories, specific families, unique faces... Each story we hear has one thing in common: explosive weapons are always part of their heart-breaking account.
As 72 year-old Neil Kinnock pointed out, it's unlikely he'll ever see another Labour government in his lifetime. My son is 20 and, at this rate, he is unlikely to see a Labour government in his lifetime either.
The storm will eventually die down, InshaAllah, and by the time it does you will have gained new ideas that otherwise might not have crossed your path. It is within this perspective that I hope you will consider my reasons for entering this debate. I am writing to you not because I share your faith, but because I share your gender.
Their comments were at best a defensive attempt to justify their own positions in the ivory tower that is Vogue - their motivations perhaps to maintain (or reclaim?) the relevance of their voices, and at worst, nasty slurs of patronising condescension toward any girl representing fashion brands or expressing herself through personal style at fashion week.
24th September, Mum's 54th birthday (or do you stop counting when someone dies?) passed, just as every other day has. People often say that they hope their loved ones are celebrating wherever they are but I'm not sure I believe in heaven, or an afterlife. I'm not sure I believe that Mum is alive in another world, space or time. I think she's probably just dead. But her spirit and everything she's taught us will live on in us.
What saddened me about this whole controversy is that most of the people criticising Tagouri's interview where ones totally oblivious to the actual content, of it which had nothing to do with what Playboy is famously known for. They were fuming at the mere fact that the word 'hijabi' and 'Playboy' were being used in the same sentence.
It is true I used the Third Sex definition as I sought to define myself without cultural reference points. It was essentially part of the process of educating myself at the same time as I was trying to educate others and I made mistakes.
Where Trigger differs from the current crop of online pranksters (aside from the surreal tone and social commentary) is in its humanity. Many online pranksters deal exclusively in shock value, often engineering pranks at the victim's expense. Pranks are conceived with the express intention of angering people and courting publicity.
The truth is, I've always loved animals. I was brought up in a household where our pets were part of the family. Our first dog Seamus (a gigantic Newfoundland) was my best friend, as was Spot our black and white cat. And there came a point when I realised that a love of animals just wasn't consistent with the cruelty of meat production
