The brutal, chaotic, sprawling Syria crisis is now so multi-faceted, with so many layers, even the newsrooms, experts and seasoned aid-workers are struggling to keep up. I've been working on Syria for nearly four years, yet it continues to horrify me with its images of suffering - of starving families, child amputees and torture survivors. It terrifies me with its prospect of longevity - there is seemingly no end to such an intractable war... We must settle more. We should resettle at least 10,000, our fair share of the 180,000 who need to be resettled in the rich and developed nations.
If we are going to protect children from sexual abuse we must make sure that anyone who recognises they have a problem, and want help to make sure they don't harm a child, is supported in getting treatment. I don't think you can 'cure' someone of paedophilia but you can use therapy to help them control their urges.
Now the 'architect of the vow' has bailed out. This was inevitable, as he'd already lost his seat next year as retribution for siding with the Tories during the referendum like the majority of the Labour MPs will find in May... So yet another major scalp Red Tory has fallen - Brown, Darling, Lamont, Sarwar, and more to come I hope.
More must be done to tackle online crime, and Facebook should cooperate. But expectations of pre-emptive screening of social media content to detect threats are fantasy. Suggestions of wide-scale, pre-emptive internet surveillance probably aren't nefarious, 'Orwellian' attempts to watch our every move; but they do misunderstand what's really possible when dealing with the internet.
Without shared responsibility, there will be no shared land. By excusing one side from its historical and political burden, we may believe that we are seeking peace. In fact, we are perpetuating war. As Pascal said, "He who would act the angel, acts the brute."
I should be more excited but the tiredness is keeping my emotions at bay. It's probably a good thing. As Sunday draws closer and we buy final bits and pieces to add to the ever expanding kit the challenge we have set ourself is clear. We are about to embark on one of the toughest, most exhilarating moments of our lives.
Unpaid internships are just a prelude to a lifetime of low pay, normalising the idea that money earned is not enough to live off... the hourglass economy is a visual metaphor that describes the disappearance of middle income jobs, but at its heart there is a fallacy. We are not a country divided by earnings, so much as by assets - and this is especially true for the young.
Understanding Psychosis destabilises such hope-crushing ideas that schizophrenia is a brain disease. How? Firstly, the report takes seriously the main biological theories, weighing up the evidence base before concluding that there is no proven biological abnormality associated with schizophrenia.
I have been unemployed for the best part of the last three years. Despite a couple of creative successes it wasn't viable to lead an existence on the back of these, so I had to look for a real job. I did try to achieve this, but I wasn't getting any results so I was told that perhaps I wasn't trying hard enough.
Newcastle have flown up the table from 18th to 5th in the space of five matches and Pardew and co are being held up as an example of the good that can come from giving a manager some leeway - and having some patience. It's just a shame that it's all a bit nonsense.
The host of the broadcast asked my subject what he would be doing with his life had he not found his calling as a stand up comedian, to which Daniel rather tragically responded that he'd probably be working in a job he hated, married to a spouse he didn't love, with children he didn't want. On measuring this brutally self aware proclamation I don't think Daniel considered the target audience of drive time radio.
For every blind or partially sighted person you see getting on with their lives, there are many more who are trapped inside their own home, afraid to leave the house and reliant on friends, family and carers to carry out the most basic of day-to-day tasks.
Italy in general, and more particularly the gorgeous Tuscany area, is well known to be an expensive place to visit, but this doesn't necessarily have to be set in stone. There are many options available to the more money-savvy traveller, heading to Italy's shores.
Are you happy that the Daily Express is saying that we should consider public figures such as Prince Charles, Ed Miliband, Boris Johnson and Winston Churchill as migrants "hidden" from the British public by official statistics? And is it correct that the Express is suggesting that the children of Nick Clegg and, for that matter, Nigel Farage are "hidden migrants"?
I wanted to do a religious game that showed religion in itself could be benevolent, it's just the application and interpretation that's problematic. Yet this gets stale quickly. The usual dividing lines in this argument run similar to those of gun control in the US: "Guns don't kill people, people kill people". Therefore, religion doesn't kill people, people with religion kill people. Drunk drivers don't kill people, drunk drivers who hit people and kill people, kill people... It's a facile argument that gets meaningless very quickly. The thing is, if religion really is so intoxicatingly corruptible, then it doesn't matter how great it is on paper, it's never going to have a happy ending.
Eighty years is within a single lifetime of today - but for many it will feel a long time ago. The pace and scale of change in science and technology, international relations, arts and culture - and the way societies work and people live - must seem vast through the eyes of a those who have lived through them.
Feminism and body image have had a tricky relationship in the last few years that makes this difficult to argue. If a woman takes her clothes off is she anti-feminism or simply in love with her own body? If she is in love with her own body then does taking her clothes off mean she doesn't respect herself?
TTIP is a big issue for politicians, business, unions and the rest of society. The secrecy which pervades the negotiations has kept it out of public debate for too long... That's why the TUC's Congress this September called for the negotiations to be halted. A good deal could be done, but not by starting from here.
We must approach today's report with calm and thoughtfulness. We should recognise that surveillance of an entire population is both an unacceptable intrusion on our freedoms and creates nothing more than a chilling effect on free expression for anyone communicating in, or with, the UK.
Asia has been infected by a silent, healthy virus of modernization. There is a remarkably wide and deep consensus among regional leaders that they should focus on modernization and pragmatic development. Because it is silent, the Western media has not noticed and continues to predict doom.
Relapse, recurrence, end of remission are just three ways to describe it. Yes, s**tily enough, my cancer has come back. *inserts crying, swearing, and general negative emotions here*... I am once again a cancer sufferer/patient/whatever. I have Non Hodgkin Lymphoma, again. This time, I'm 17.
The storm over Uber's consumer privacy settings is just the latest in a growing list of concerns about the tech industry's handling of our data. From general irritation about targeted ads; to deep unease about our personal data security, to fears over the erosion of civil liberties - there is concern about who has access to data about us and what they are doing with it.
