We may not be seeing this crisis on the news, but having seen for myself the devastating impact the drought is having on children here in Lesotho, I've been left in no doubt just how desperate the situation has become. The scariest thing is if we don't act now it could become so much worse. We simply cannot turn our backs on these children in their time of need.
There is lot of interest in Jeremy Corbyn here. Most of the nonsensical British media coverage has not impacted on ordinary Americans and they see him as a progressive insurgent on the Sanders model with Sanders uncanny ability to enthuse idealistic young people.
The evidence is clear: Prevent is an untenable infringement. The only people still defending the policy are May and her Government, in defiance of the experts. The question now is not if, but when Prevent will be repealed; and how those violated by it will be vindicated.
Let's forget about the 'life stories' of our potential leaders, and let's not criticise (or laud) them for the jobs they did before entering politics. Let's instead judge them on more basic criteria: are they capable, are they trustworthy, what do they believe in? What do they stand for? And can they actually lead effectively?
Dramatic changes in the UK's political climate in recent weeks have had a profound effect on everyone, both young and old. Naturally, there is an air of uncertainty about the future and it's unsurprising that recent polls show anxieties have been particularly felt by the younger generation.
As much as I love sharing my photos and having a platform that is exclusively for that - it just makes me feel bad. It makes me feel like I'm the only one who has days where the only food consumed is half a yoghurt and a handful of raisins. Days when you stop for 30 seconds to down your lukewarm coffee and you find your fast-as-a-whippet daughter has climbed the stairs and is upstairs roaming free.
There's no getting around it: aeroplanes suck for the environment. And when the sun's out and you're dreaming of a city break someplace fancy, it's pretty tempting just to shrug your shoulders, accept you'll feel a tad guilty, and book a flight to somewhere in Europe. But, you can have the city break and keep a clear conscience.
The whole thing is still pretty much one big boys' club - Kirk, Spock, Scotty and Bones swooping in and saving the day, while their female counterparts are basically demoted to sidekicks. In a fictional world supposedly based on equality and progressive social attitudes, that feels anachronistic.
Tumours in my pelvis and spine have proved harder to reach but that only increases my belief in Nivolumab. Those bone nodules appeared just before my treatment started. So imagine if the drug had been around when I was diagnosed and had surgery in October 2014. Would I have been cured by now?
The minister, amongst other things, oversaw the implementation of Britain's commitment to take 20,000 Syrian refugees from the region and an additional 3,000 vulnerable refugee children from the Middle East over the course of this Parliament. This process was already moving at a snail's pace - by the end of March of this year only 1,602 people had been resettled in the UK. Now, with no one holding the ball on this issue you have to wonder how anyone can remain optimistic that we will hit this target.
There is not a single good reason to put so many people in danger of identity theft, harassment and worse.
Yes, Jeremy Corbyn's leadership has had his detractors from day one - including some whose sniping from the start has been as self-indulgent as it has been destructive. But take a look at what people like Lilian Greenwood, Lou Haigh, Paul Blomfield and Lis McInness have been writing. These kinds of people are as far away from right-wing plots and conspiracies as you could get...
There are over three billion people around the world with internet access and there are enormous benefits to an ever more connected society. But we must do more to ensure that the internet remains safe for young people to explore, create, dream and achieve their true potential.
We mustn't further punish the poorest in Britain or around the world because of the decision to leave the EU. Theresa May will already be thinking of what will define her premiership; spreading prosperity more equitably at home and abroad would be something to be truly proud of.
We all worry about whether or not we're a good parent. You only have to go onto instagram to see the hoards of inspirational quotes proclaiming 'you're good enough', to realise we're a little bit obsessed. Are we doing enough? Are we giving them enough?
As a junior doctor in occupational health - a medical specialty concerned with health at work, I spend a significant proportion of my time coaching and supporting my junior doctor colleagues who in this current climate, are particularly vulnerable to the insurmountable workplace and training demands coupled with seemingly never-ending warfare between the government and the BMA.
Labour is now paying for its own silence. It let the anti-migrant narrative go unchecked and, in doing so, it gave ground to the xenophobic factions within the Conservatives and Ukip. With the premiership of Theresa May, the stakes are much higher.
Education is not a commodity, and it should not be something reserved for the privileged few. The Tories' endless assaults on higher education are an assault on our society at large, widening the gap between poor and privileged more than ever before. 'Social mobility' isn't just dying, it's already dead - and it's about time we started fighting to resuscitate it.
Are you sick of constantly tripping over toys, piles of unworn clothes and things-that-really-should-have-been-put-away-weeks-ago? Then maybe like us, you need to have a serious declutter...
Democracy can often fall far short of what a genuinely effective, representative political system should be. The trouble is that so far, no one has come up with anything better. I just hope that someone, somewhere, is working on it ...
Swift reminds me of a Queen Bee in secondary school. The head of the cool group that holds the power to approve or deny entry to the posse. Say what you want about Kim and Kanye but they are brutally open and honest, often to the point where it's shocking and socially frowned upon... I rate that raw (and sometimes embarrassing and socially awkward) honesty more than people being fake or lying. At least you know where you stand.
There's no point in pretending otherwise, this week is decidedly less A-list. Last week was 'Strictly Come Dancing', this week it's a bit more 'Dancing On Ice', but let's just get stuck in regardless, shall we? Here are three of the biggest new tunes for this week...
