Sandwiched between Saudi Arabia, Israel, Iraq and Syria things could be so different. Instead of the history of turmoil that each of its neighbors has endured, Jordan has managed to remain peaceful, moderate and welcoming. Two thirds of the population are not native Jordanian - they have moved, migrated or sought asylum from one of the surrounding countries. Imagine that.
I'm standing to be Mayor to take that huge success we've seen under Boris, and make it work for all Londoners... Between now and the close of polls I'll be campaigning with everything I have. With your help, I will make Greater London, greater still.
There is a choice at this election. London is the greatest city in the world, but we're at a crossroads. Londoners can vote for a candidate who will fight for ordinary citizens, or they can vote for four more years of the same. They can vote for hope and diversity, or they can vote for fear.
No-one would invent the BBC today. But thank God our predecessors did. The BBC is one of this country's greatest institutions: it developed organically, almost accidentally, but it's become a central part of the public realm without being part of the state.
I've never been one to read Celebrity weekly magazines or the infamous Sidebar Of Shame (unless for work purposes, obvs), but the coverage of Teigen's pregnancy and existence since giving birth to baby Luna has been unavoidable and totally infuriating.
It's one of Grayson's greatest gifts as a documentary voice to ask the questions to which he's genuinely curious to know the answer. Not rocket-science you might think, but so much television interviewing is really a targeted exercise in quote-harvesting.
Rita Ora wore a pin emblazoned with the words 'Not Becky' to a Met Gala afterparty. Katy Perry also donned a 'Not Becky' pin - perhaps as a sign of support for Ora who has been the victim of intense trolling. I fear it is now only a matter of time before the first 'Not Becky' slogan tees pop up on the high street and this is not a good thing.
My notion of home is not necessarily linked to a physical place or a nation to which I feel patriotic. If anything it has completely removed itself from the physical and now become nothing more and nothing less than a feeling.
I'm not an economist and I don't have all the answers, but when two professionals have no hope of getting a mortgage without the support of their entire family, clearly something needs to change.
If that 'unheard third' of voters had spoiled their ballots they would have outnumbered all the other parties. Spoiling your ballot shows you cared enough to vote for nobody, rather than that you couldn't be arsed to vote at all. Surely that's a better legacy for millennials than the one we've already got?
I am a single, gay man, living in London and telling my little dick jokes for a living. What an exciting time to be alive. Anything is possible. Except when it comes to finding that someone special.... I am not afraid of dying alone - in fact, I've even rephrased it. I'll die independently.
Society is structured for those who cohabit. These beings can blissfully skip through the grey landscape looking down their raised noses at those who walk alone. Like the token awkward third wheel to society, the singleton is shamed, shunned, and at a significant disadvantage when it comes to most things.
If you have a relentless sweet tooth, next time you're hit with a craving, stop and take stock of what exactly is going on at that present moment. Accept that 'yes I really want chocolate right now' but ask yourself why. There's always something else driving the desire for a sugar fix - especially if the desire is sudden, strong and all-consuming.
We support babies by supporting pregnant women. We support pregnant women by fostering an environment of trust where a woman who is struggling with any issue in her pregnancy knows she can confide in those caring for her, and receive non-judgmental support.
No-one likes a delay, and it seems weird to have a finished console just sitting on a shelf waiting to be released, but by delaying to Christmas Nintendo can improve the launch games and make sure the console is as perfect as they can possibly make it before unleashing it onto the world.
We're really excited that you're the new Mayor of London. Perhaps even more excited than you are judging by your campaigns. We're particularly pleased that you're the new Mayor because Lola's fifth birthday is soon and now Mr Johnson is freed up to come and do the entertainment. He seems like somebody who could make a really good balloon puppy.
It's not fair we couldn't help. You were not a burden, but we'd have shared yours willingly. Your darkest moments aren't held against you, and never have been. We couldn't walk a mile in your shoes, but without hesitation we would have tried if asked.
When I first started acting, I knew it was what I wanted to do and I feel very fortunate to have made a career of it. I know how rewarding it can be to do a job you love, but I also know that for many young people starting out in this tough economic climate it can be difficult to get a foot in the door of a career they want. There are thousands of young people out there who are struggling to find their way, facing all kinds of challenges - from physical or mental health problems to a childhood spent in care.
Zac Goldsmith is also pally with his former brother in law, Imran Khan. A Pakistani former cricketer and politician who has, in his work as opposition leader, negotiated with the Taliban many times. This then makes Zac Goldsmith surely a graver threat (by proxy) to UK security than MP Sadiq Khan.
Did you know that the saying actually dates back to pre-Twitter times of 1979, and that late prime minister Margaret Thatcher is to thank for the tradition? Well, she sort of is. When she was elected on May 4, 1979, a headline in the London Evening News read, "May The Fourth Be With You, Maggie. Congratulations."
Instead of sitting back, crossing our fingers and hoping for an end to the Syrian civil war, the EU should be uniting to heap pressure on those regional powers blocking the path to peace. Never before has a continent with so much invested in the stability of its surrounding regions, been so reluctant to project its power and defend its interests.
The International Development Committee is encouraged by DFID's focus on the long term development of Yemen and the department's support for UN efforts to facilitate peace talks. We urge the Government to apply pressure on all parties to the conflict so we can see progress in the peace talks and particularly to ensure that the accompanying ceasefire is adhered to by all sides.
