If there were a competition for false advertising, the much-talked-about trailer for the Fifty Shades of Grey movie would walk away with first prize... If we move from the trailer to the book, the sex isn't so much hot as violent and dehumanizing. Christian has a thing for what is generally called sadomasochism in the popular press, but in the book what we see is pure sadism carried out by a sophisticated predator who knows how to groom vulnerable girls. The most likely real-world ending of Fifty Shades of Grey is fifty shades of black and blue.
As a full-time journalist I'm constantly exposed to the sh**ty, bleak side of life. As a result, I've learned not to sentimentalise and that certainly benefits me in this role. Because there is no point in breaking down in tears while a sex worker tells you she has been raped or robbed or both. It doesn't help. What I can do is empathise. Provide a hug. Organise immediate, practical assistance such as food, clothes, medical care or arrange police intervention.
Reinvigorating one of the great offices of state will require a fresh look at how we exert global influence and how we identify early warning signs where countries with close links to the UK are heading towards trouble. Bangladesh is one such country and should be a high priority for Hammond.
Unlike many types of cancer, skin cancer is greatly affecting our young population. It's now one of the most common types of cancer in people between the ages of 15 to 34. And young people's behaviour in the sun, such as that captured by the Teenager Cancer Trust research, has got a lot to do with this.
It's not easy to find calm in London. The bustling, lively city can also be draining and stressful, often with no reprieve. I wanted to find myself a slice of countryside peace without stepping foot outside Zone 1. And, luckily, I found just the answer.
Last season they came in under the radar, with very few people talking them up as title contenders until relatively late in the season. When they finally bashed the door down and sat atop the Premier League table, the players seemed to see everyone looking at them, panicked and promptly fell.
The transfer window has only been open for a short period of time and bar the few managers who are yet to realise it is open at all, most teams have added a number of new faces to their rosters... Here are the top five and why they stand a good chance of getting better.
Sometimes there just aren't enough hours in the day. Most of us have good intentions when it comes to working out but, with family life, work and social schedules, it can make it difficult to do the recommended 3 hours of weekly exercise. That's where NEAT can help.
The microscope will be firmly fixed on Everton in the upcoming campaign to see if they can match, or better, their exploits from the previous year. In a way, Martínez faces the prospect of enduring his own form of 'second season syndrome'.
When the first glitch in a courtship appears, it's like that moment when you realise that to get that super fast, super cheap internet, you need to fork out for line rental. Matthew's 'line rental' was his need to have a say in absolutely everything we did together.
What on earth do I have to be afraid of? 1) Nobody will show up. The average audience size at the Edinburgh Fringe is four. Four people. My venue seats 200. With 196 opportunities to fail, nightly, this season is going to be downright sacred.
The extent to which the UK and most of the rest of the Western world are currently mismanaging our economies clearly has a huge financial cost. In the longer term, however, the political cost will be even greater than the economic price - unless we see radical changes in policy.
Young people will demonstrate because they see the connection between abductions in Nigeria, the rapes and murders of young girls in India, the so-called "honor killings" of Pakistani girls who marry against family wishes, the genital mutilation of girls in preparation for child marriages across Africa and the ever-present reality that 7 million school-aged girls are working full time, often in slave labour conditions, many of them trafficked out of their home country when they should be at school.
One thing I really will never recover from is the realization that I am an adult as in a grown up person. I never thought this would happen. I only realized when one day I was called 'ma'am' instead of 'miss'.
'Perhaps we should sit down,' WHY DID I SAY THAT? Now he thinks I've killed someone he loves. Great start. With all of the calm of a fully charged vibrator I continued: 'I have something I need to ask you, I was wondering how you would feel, if you would be okay with, if you would allow me...(yep that's all the ways to say that sentence - must get to the point) if I asked Phoebe to marry me?'
More important than the highs and lows of a political career - is that the most enduring legacy of Michael Gove's tenure, has been the creation of a grassroots British education reform movement, that will continue for many years to come.
Together, they've got 27 Grammys, 20 Billboard Music awards, $1 billion in personal wealth, 112 million social media followers, 11 houses, seven fragrances, two world tours and one very cute child. All of their success and the angst about them splitting is based on a very questionable idea: That Shawn 'Jay Z' Carter is a good person. I dispute that.
Of course we could use more money - we had far more applicants to our National portfolio than we could afford to support. Yes, there is more to do in terms of the balance of the Arts Council's investment and yes, progress is slow - but it is purposeful and targeted. Overall investment outside London has actually increased in this National portfolio round.
We have planted a flag in Brussels which will be a rallying point for others who favour reform and renegotiation in Europe, including those MEPs currently in different political groups in the parliament. Anyone who believes Europe has lost its way and has to change, will know that they will never lack friendship or support from the ECR.
Frankly, I've had a gutful of the idea that what you do - or don't - eat makes you somehow better than someone else. It doesn't. You are NOT what you eat just like you're not what you don't eat (sugar, gluten etc). Those people who loudly wear their food choices as a badge are becoming tiresome.
When you like a guy and he is unavailable and already committed to some other girl, it can get really frustrating and quite disheartening. In your dizziest day-dreams, your mind can go down a slightly dark and twisty route thinking of ways to eliminate said girlfriend.
There's no question that Arsenal's expected new recruit would carry a real threat to Wojciech Szczesny's starting spot, though it's competition that the Pole has needed and perhaps lacked since earning his first team status. Nevertheless, there's little doubt that the young stopper made significant waves last season.
