With Beyond the Bombings we've been deliberate to use our What's Working approach to news to focus on constructive, solution-led journalism. We will be publishing an interview with 7/7 survivor Gill Hicks who lost her legs and became a motivational speaker and anti-extremism campaigner. We'll have a blog from Esther Hyman, whose sister died in the attacks and who is raising money for an online anti-extremism course. We've also written a profile of Paul Dadge, the 'reluctant hero' who helped a woman with the white face mask in a famous picture. The London bombings touched people from across Britain, including our own news editor Jacqueline Housden who was on one of the tube trains which was attacked and is returning to work at HuffPost UK after giving birth to her first child. These are all remarkable stories which highlight the ability of wounds, no matter how deep, to heal.
The next day I returned to the radio station I worked for, LBC 97.3, where I hosted their Friday evening phone-in. Ten years later, I can remember that programme more vividly than any I've presented in my 20-year broadcasting career.
Suddenly there was an almighty bang, one of the manhole covers lifted off the floor (I'd never ever noticed they existed before!) and the train jerked to a stop. We could hear screaming coming from the front of the train, a man. Everyone got up and moved to the back of the coach to escape the black smoke.
it is important to recognise that changes need to be made in Westminster too, and England's voice should be strengthened when it comes to English only matters. However, David Cameron has proposed fundamental Constitutional changes, and is proposing to introduce them in two weeks' time, using a little known parliamentary procedure... This is no way to make profound constitutional change. It is an outrage the Government thinks it is.
The world is complex and multifaceted, and I don't pretend I understand it. But as a boy making my newspaper, and now as an editor, I do know the power of storytelling. Positive and constructive approaches offer a way to help strengthen journalism, at a time when more than ever, we need a way of looking at the world that sparks the potential in us all.
Touch rugby and rugby in general is an incredibly positive and exciting team sport and the values involved in rugby are crucial for achieving anything in life. The values learnt through team skills, playing a role in a group and learning how to win or lose cannot be underestimated in terms of their value going forward. Whether you are young, old, male or female, the skills and values you can learn through rugby are hugely beneficial.
We must have answers. Indiscriminate mass surveillance has an impact that reaches far beyond Amnesty. It threatens the vital work of other organisations and it impacts you. Yes, you! In accepting your government encroaching into your private communications you risk sleepwalking into a surveillance culture.
It's not just about qualifications. It's not just about education or background. How do I know? Because I didn't excel in either of these areas - instead, I actually put my own success down to something called soft skills - the vital skills such as communication, teamwork and time management which everyone needs to succeed at work and beyond.
After years of planning and protests, wrangling and reviews, Lancashire County Council's decision to reject the application for shale gas exploration shouldn't have come as a surprise. It highlighted the fact that the UK does not have a long term energy strategy, and for too long we've done nothing about it.
Helen was cancer to last year's Big Brother house and this year's series was equally affected. I can only feel sorry for the housemates who auditioned for this year's series, rather than last year's but ended up having to live with the corrupted, twisted, rotten woman.
The media after her death in July 2011, focussed on her alcohol and drug abuse. But they didn't mention her bulimia, nor the depression she wrestled with since she was a teen. The new documentary film on her life directed by Asif Kapadia sets the record straight, telling the tale of a brilliant woman who was plagued with self-doubt and deficient in resilience.
There are many other things that I have done as a mother, that frankly are probably not cricket. Sometimes in order to stay yourself, with the smallest amount of dignity, you have got to make the best of the tools you have at your disposal.
The experience I am having is, I don't think it's hyperbolic to say, the equivalent of what Jesus went through in his moments of doubt and pain. But through that human misery, I have truly learnt what it is to lose something dear to you.
Mod was very often routed in class. Working class young men who wanted to look super smart when they went out at the weekend and would save for months to buy the right clothes. Add into the mix a carefully selected mix of music, a penchant for drugs to keep them dancing all night and the desire to prove they were not defined by a dreary office job - and you have a template that can be repeated whatever the year.
It is striking that despite the significant variance in mathematical ability between within gender, generalised binary rules are often applied when discussing these issues. This phenomenon is not exclusive to gender and skills, but seen consistently in situations where there are different groups, leading to stereotype formation.
I'm a mum of twin boys Ollie and Caleb, and a younger daughter, Phoebe. With Phoebe, it's quite straight forward. We apply for a place, she is accepted and she gets placed into a class. Decision made and off she will go to nursery, or school, or social group.
You have Technicolour skin when you climb out of the water: lobster pink and mauve in my case. The circulation boost has great anti-ageing effects on the capillaries, leaving skin supple and glowing. Some claim it combats cellulite as well.
The sight of a wasp/bee/hornet makes you convulse and scream on impact like a deranged psychopath. You add a can of Raid to your weekly shopping order and feel mighty powerful taking out half of the insect population with one lingering blast of the can.
I have spent my career working with women who have been beaten, raped and exploited. What all failed to understand in the debate, is that women are beaten and raped exactly because they have less value in society. To me it was not about money and wages it was about worth. So as the government marched through the no lobby it felt like we women were worthless. So who can we blame when this week two of us, the worthless, are murdered?
There is a way to stop the harmful impact on young people of unaffordable rents and house prices, but it's a going to a take a big, bold plan from politicians to make it happen.
We're waiting for this government to show that they're serious.
I defy you to maintain that women's football is boring, but if you insist - after having genuinely watched a significant amount - then the solution, I'm afraid, is to keep watching and keep investing to improve the standard of the game.
All the signs are that next week's budget will feature a massive and unprecedented raid on working peoples' pockets. If the government doesn't have enough money to make work pay, you might be forgiven for asking, just what are the Tories willing to spend money on these days?
