I think Nicola will achieve great things for Scotland, and continue the work that Eck started. She will be a constant thorn to Westminster and she will acquire powers by the strength of her persuasive arguments refusing to acquiesce and relentless demands. Seems like Nicola and the SNP are the only party capable of taking the fight to Farage and Ukip. It is a shame that Miliband doesn't have the same backbone.
The first project of its kind in the world, £1.6billion of Government investment has leveraged £3.6billion from private investors like Marubeni corporation, Siemens and KFW in getting 37 green projects off the ground. It means the Bank has now passed an impressive milestone - helping finance a total of over £5billion of investment in the UK's green infrastructure.
Nearly two-thirds of the 200 highest-grossing films of the past 12 years have involved UK talent in leading roles. That really does make me proud to be British in Hollywood this week!
One of the first symptoms of depression is when you can't make any decisions. Choosing which direction to walk is overwhelming, looking at a menu is like going on Mastermind. Eventually your brain gives up, it has no more room, you've scored 'game over' hit your full capacity like an over stuffed hoover bag before it explodes.
For those of you who think I've lost my sense of humour or am being a hysterical, angry feminist, know that sexual harassment is no laughing matter. The reality is that every single woman has been sexually harassed at some point in her lifetime - and that includes you mothers, sisters, daughters and friends.
The ideological response to ISIS must be cast from outside the realm of religious authority altogether. You see, Islam in particular, and holy text religions in general, are open to interpretation and selectivity. By responding to ISIS from within its own paradigm, one only validates its basic premise...
Looking your age is not OK because to look old or even 'your age' (whatever that means) is the worst thing that can happen to you. Having work isn't OK either because it's try-hard and who are you trying to kid, Old Lady? Your face cannot win and neither can you.
Guess what girls? Your body is disgusting. If you're bigger than a size 12 you're disgusting. If you're smaller than a size 12 you're disgusting. And just who's decided you're disgusting? Your fellow women, of course.
A thick fog has descended over Food Tube HQ where some frightfully delicious recipes have risen from the shallow depths of the internet... Mwhahahahahahaha!
In order to be a successful businesswomen in this male-dominated world, I believe confidence is key. Not only to success, but to happiness. I am much happier with myself today as I have confidence in what I do. Over my life, I have learned so much and I was lucky enough to have a fantastic mentor - my mother.
The popular rapper Professor Green recently confessed to me that he thinks he might be a WEREWOLF!!... But first, with All Hallow's Eve this week, I thought there'd be no better time to sit down and think about my favourite monster.
It is not an issue of women who go out wearing negligées, it is an issue of misogyny and men who have no idea how to treat women... If you want to dress up as a sexy nurse, or a sexy doughnut, or a sexy caterpillar, or just a regular unsexy caterpillar, I don't see a problem. Go forth and enjoy your night.
High cholesterol should be a cause for concern because it usually has no obvious symptoms, but can lead to a heart attack or stroke without warning. The condition is common, it is estimated that up to two thirds of adults have raised cholesterol levels without realising it. Consuming the wrong type of foods and a lack of exercise often contribute to high cholesterol levels.
Are these slogan tops actually helping gender equality progress? Or is feminism just being lost in a pile of t-shirts and squabbling politicians? Women need to see policies for gender inequality being addressed pronto. What we don't need is politicians squabbling over a bloody feminism t-shirt.
Pochettino has said that introducing new tactics, training methods and the like doesn't take long but that changing mentality is a much lengthier process. The measure of a good manager is whether he can make his a team add up to more than the sum of its parts.
From close-ups of rare pieces and clutches of raw gemstones, to atelier shots and vintage inspiration, step inside a closed world, with the kind of access previously only available to a handful.
My daughter has a fight on her hands. She won't be married off at nine or twelve. But at nine or twelve she will already be exposed to fashion aimed at her which sexualises her, she will perhaps like female pop stars whose pert bums as crucial to ticket sales as their music. She will have started to get comments, positive and negative about her face and figure.
The case for reform grows stronger by the day, as does public support for a rethink. We need to be bold and courageous to follow the evidence and put an end to the prohibitionist approach which has repeatedly and invariably failed us all.
Our queer ancestors, the ones who fought at Stonewall and marched on Washington and were arrested and beaten and murdered for their queerness, weren't battling so that we could be like everyone else. We have never been just like everyone else and I hope we never are.
Surely no-one wants our most vulnerable children to suffer, even in harsh economic times. And they don't need to. Different choices are possible. We know because many other countries have done better. It is possible to reduce child poverty and deprivation even as we take steps to recover from the great recession.
In the end, I had to pick the outcome to the situation that would make me hate myself the least. Retrospectively, it was like picking a way you'd like to die. Obviously, you're going to go for the easiest, most painless option you can. But, in addition, you're still going to die. And all of this is quite ironic, seeing as it wasn't my life I was choosing to end.
In spite of recent suggestions that the group had strengthened the evidence base relating to anti-Muslim prejudice through 'academic research', the harsh reality is somewhat different. In fact there has been no 'academic research' to have emerged from the group, let alone funded by it or indeed government.
