Wednesday's horrific attack on the streets of southeast London was more than just a random murder; This murder, like all terrorist attacks, was intended to send a message, one of division and hate. Though the English Defence League is by no means a terrorist organisation, Wednesday's events have not only skyrocketed the movement's levels of support, but have yielded increasing calls for targeted violence against Muslim communities.
For political reasons, Jeremy Hunt has turned this whole issue into a crisis of primary care. The trouble is he has a real crisis in A&E that isn't going away - and the measures he is proposing won't solve it, as the advice from NHS England makes clear. In fact, by focusing his department's attention on the wrong target, he could make matters even worse.
The good thing about this recipe is not just the fact it is so easy to make but the texture and flavour of a few spring vegetables. The pesto really finishes the soup off and with the addition of the cream, all the flavours are combined.
Before it was wrong, children often toiled alongside their parents. For their parents. Now we work for them. Like tiny benign overlords they preside over us. Arguably it's better this way. But sometimes, when my toddler rides me like a mule after 12 hours of one-to-one fun, only marginally so.
Like many lost second generation immigrants in Europe who have gone before him, Abedolajo--who was first alienated, addicted to drugs and confused about foreign policy--appears to have found a short-term psychological fix to his derailed life and its accompanying psychic pain in the militant jihadi ideology.
No conversation, no matter how meaningful and powerful, can bring back the millions we've already lost to suicide. The loved ones of these victims also have a thirst for conversation and our efforts to engage with them may very well prevent the next loss to suicide if we can all continue to break the silence and share our journeys.
Even though I was useless, the adrenalin rush (when Tallulah eventually did break into a canter) was incomparable. Seriously, imagine mastering a sport where it's not *just* your skill, but it's coupled with persuading a wayward quadruped into taking part too. And it's REALLY FAST. Magic.
May is a much-loved month in the UK. It brings sunshine (most years), the start of late summer evenings (if the sun shines) and two three-day weekends thanks to the Bank Holiday Mondays at the beginning and end of the month (no matter the weather!).
From the moment the Paralympians exploded into the Olympic Stadium and onto our screens, to the moment Cold Play dazzled at the Paralympic Closing Ceremony, something profound happened. Risks were taken, a moment seized, and a nation was lifted by the power of possibility.
Being predominantly a trainer-wearer, I have super soft, easily irritated, coddled feet, so sandal shopping is a nightmare. I despise anything that goes between my toes so thongs and toe posts are a total no-go. Trying to find sandals without them is a hard slog, I'm generally a pretty awkward customer when it comes to summer footwear.
Europe is home to some beaches that rival those found in the Caribbean. Instead of trotting across the globe to find your little slice of heaven, why not visit one of Europe's most beautiful beaches?
How often do we go through our days feeling as though the whole world is against us? It can sometimes just take one minor incident to take us off track and we allow our entire day to go into a negative spiral at times. Remember, only YOU have the power to change YOUR life.
The van is the mothership and the gigs are like the bits in Star Trek when they beam down to a new planet for a bit - without us losing the bloke who you've never seen before. There's the fun of looking up some record shops and old friends who've moved to the places we're visiting...
A major privatisation is about to take place. One would think this would give the government something to crow about but strangely the opposite is true. The government plans to flog off the Royal Mail but it is not very keen to talk about it.
The prevalence of violent people in Scotland is 13.6 times that of terrorists among Muslims. In fact, this is an understatement. A Scotsman who has committed a violent crime is more likely to be out of prison than a Muslim terrorist, either because he's more likely to have gotten away with his crime or because he's more likely to have finished his sentence.
There can no longer be any doubt, this Bill wrecks marriage. Labour's amendment, scrawled on a dog-eared scrap of paper and hastily tabled in the Commons at the eleventh hour. The Bill to wreck marriage has social liberals giddy with delight.
Finally! A politician who speaks my language! Who understands my needs! Finally, if all goes to plan, next summer I can marry my mum! Thank you, Lord Tebbit. People said - 'you're gay? I presume you'll be wed to your mother then?' To which I replied, 'you betcha! After all, lesbianism is just another word for tax-avoiding incest, isn't it?!'
Time to muster up fun, inspiring ideas for all levels of exercisers. There are still unconventional ways to expend calories without having to go to the gym! 'No pain, no gain? Not in my world. Just dedicate your work-out to someone you love and believe me, there will be no pain, only pleasure!
The tight twisty nature and no room for error characteristics of the Monte Carlo streets means that one error likely means end of race and into the barriers. It's this that sets this race apart from the rest. 78 laps of pure concentration - Ayrton Senna famously likened it to driving through a tunnel for two hours, zoning in on the perfect racing line for all that time.
As a Muslim, I appreciated and acknowledged the need for Muslim organisations to rightly condemn the actions that took place this week but disagreed with both organisations reaffirming the need to distance Islam's true teachings from the individual who attacked the soldier.
Speaking as a Conservative, the next election is ours to lose. If it means holding our noses... then so be it. Every Conservative has a duty to knuckle down and follow our leader. If we do that, there is every chance that come 2020, the United Kingdom (and it will still be united) will be prosperous and free
Week in and week out in my GP surgery in North Wales I meet patients who have waited weeks, months and even years to seek help for a medical problem because they are simply too embarrassed.
