Enough is enough though. This Red Nose Day, we want to help change and save thousands of lives by improving healthcare for communities across Africa. By combining your cash with local talent and determination we can make a huge difference and to demonstrate that we're going to follow the refurbishment of Iyolwa clinic by working with Ugandans like Gonza, a local architect who has come forward to lend his skills. Your support will not only help to refurbish this clinic, but will also help to improve healthcare for thousands of people in communities across Africa...
With attention focused on the very beginning of fundamental rights protection as well as the successor framework to the Millennium Development Goals, 2015 is an opportunity to refocus and reinvigorate our efforts towards achieving equality of rights for all.
When I heard that the Natural History Museum will replace Dippy the Dinosaur with a blue whale, my first instinct was outrage. I was wrong. It's time to let Dippy go.
The oil is almost gone and the same will be true of gas sooner rather than later. Then what? Tar Sands or deep water drilling? This is simply ducking the hard questions and leaving it to future generations to deal with.
Director, Paul Feig, revealed the all-female cast for the new Ghostbusters film. And I practically whooped when I saw the tweet that confirmed his decision.
At the moment the UK is just not competitive. The hard fact of the matter is that we have been trying for far too long to sell our output, especially of manufactured goods, at far too high prices on world markets and we have priced ourselves out of the market.
The Apple Watch's operating system looks so alien that I almost don't like it, and that's a good thing.
It started as a guilty pleasure. A simple way to abdicate intellectual responsibility for an hour and look at attractive people talking about meaningless things, feeling smug about how great London looks and bathing in the extended idea that ALL our lives could actually be TV-ready with just a bit more editing and a more committed use of Instagram.
Choice is what should be promoted, not exclusively breastfeeding. I am absolutely sick to the gills of health professionals and the NHS and antenatal/postnatal professionals, and worst culprits of all, fellow mothers, constantly banging on about how important it is to breastfeed.
I have a golden rule with all my clients for whom I do this kind of work. I will never engage in a conversation with anyone online using a named social media account and pretending to be that person.
The World Anti Doping Agency (WADA) is forever chasing the so-called cheat, but without ever standing a realistic chance of beating them... Eventually, like it or not, we will come to realize that doping in sport can be managed but not defeated.
Like 30 million other Brits, the PAYE system automatically takes a certain chunk from my salary each month. However, for some, it's a different story. Tax avoidance has become global issue splashed across every national newspaper.
Have you ever heard someone say that they want to be 'just' a mum or a dad when they are an adult? If they have, I wonder what the reaction was? We are always expected to have another role. Mothers are now expected to go to work, have a career, and play a role financially even if a partner supports them.
The most telling moment this season at Anfield wasn't when he was dropped from the squad - registering just 34 minutes of football in 2015 at the time of writing - nor was it the time he was slammed by boss Brendan Rodgers for swapping shirts with Pepe at half-time. It was, typically, something that happened off the pitch.
Nothing quite characterises the levels of poverty in austerity Britain better than the dramatic growth in the use of food banks in recent years.
The subtleties we lose when we communicate electronically have to do with expression, with touch, with the face-to-face aspect of relationship. Social media does not show tears in the eye, a hand on the arm when saying something painful, body language that speaks of inner turmoil, deep distress - even gentle respect. It is simply there - usually forever.
It's how and why the memories of one of the darkest moments in human history should be kept alive that formed the theme of the film. And during the months making it I was struck by the myriad of ways those who suffered the atrocities of the Holocaust have chosen to pass their memories on. How they refuse to allow the echo of what they witnessed fade.
Anne wrote, "How wonderful it is that no-one need wait, but can start right now to
gradually change the world". Anne Frank, as we mark seven decades since your agonised protracted death at Nazi hands, please know that you really did help to change the world.
We are often told that as Jews, we should end our "unhealthy obsession" with the Holocaust; that it is now time to move on. Whilst this may seem sacrilegious to some, as an educator, I would like to suggest that perhaps we do need to re-evaluate the messages that we take from this darkest period of recent Jewish history and their long term import.
It's very hard to get breasts into advertising, even if those breasts are being checked for signs of cancer.
Throughout its modern history, the case for Scottish nationalism has rested strongly on the pillar of North Sea oil... But lately the weakness of this longstanding pillar of the case for Scottish independence has been badly exposed.
When the first #SmearForSmear selfies started popping up on my newsfeed, I couldn't help but let out a disappointed groan. For me, the suggestion that women need yet another thinly-related social media campaign to make them take their health seriously is all a bit patronising.
