What pitfalls do early-stage startups need to be aware of within in the travel & hospitality industry? The pitfalls are by and large the same as in any industry; have a clear mission and solve an actual problem in a unique way without forgetting about the whole 'how it makes money' bit.
Labour is now, after years of personality confusion, distinctive to the Tories. Fairness versus division. Investment versus cuts. On your side versus on your own. Now we need to stay united in what we stand for and behind our leader. Those who fail to read this new mood correctly must surely consider their consciences. Our duty as a party is to turn and fight with our every fibre for the best deal for the people we represent, not to wheedle and plot, to dissemble and deceive, to disunite our party and distract us from our purpose. That purpose is, unequivocally, to win power. And the purpose of that power is to make ours a better Britain.
For me fashion has always been a feminist issue - not only because clothes can empower you, but also because the clothes we wear are most likely being sown and made by other women - so we carry their stories with us every single day.
Everyone needs someone to help them live a positive life and realise their true potential. This is why I set up my charity, Dame Kelly Holmes Trust, eight years ago on the eve of the Beijing Games. I embarked on this mission because I realised two things: not enough young people have a mentor figure in their life; and secondly because I knew the solution.
I'm currently residing in the trendy east London area that is Shoreditch and I would classify myself as a 'fashionista'. I go shopping on the High Street almost every week but I still don't see images of people like me staring back from the hundreds of advertisements.
We desperately need a government willing to tackle the stranglehold a few a have been allowed to wield over power and wealth, and use the resources gained from this to reduce inequality and halt climate change. We have no choice: we have to win these arguments, and we have to win them now.
In the heat of the EU referendum campaign leading Leave-supporting ministers (many of whom remain in Theresa May's post-Brexit cabinet) were categorical that regions like the North East would not be financially hit if the UK voted to leave the EU. It is looking ever more uncertain that England's poorer regions will receive their full allocation of funds.
Last year, aged 41 and the mother to two beautiful young boys, I was told the words that, at the time, brought my world crashing down: 'you've got breast cancer'. Now 19 months on, I can't believe how much my life has changed, but not necessarily in the way I thought it would when I was given the diagnosis.
Scheduled for 2019, if the ban comes into effect it will have huge implications for textile collectors the world over, not to mention the much relied upon income that charities receive from this trade. With a looming ban on imported used textiles in the largest second-hand markets in the world, and the growing problem of textile waste, a different approach to textile recycling is needed.
Mukherjee asks us to wonder, as he does himself, what will we do with these new-found powers? What does the future hold for the human genome – now that we are learning to “read” and “write” our own codes of instruction?
A while ago I read an article about parents wearing PJs when they do the school drop-off. Well, PJ fans look no further we have the perfect ploy for your pyjama acceptance - while helping to raise money for children with brain injury.
Because you are too young to understand any of this, and you don't deserve it. It isn't fair that I love you so fiercely every day and yet there's a chance that you'll lose me and never remember me at all
I also agree that no one's managed to prove me right yet. With so many great efforts underway, why haven't we as consumers forced brands to tell us who makes our clothes? Here are the top three challenges I see - and how to fix them
Labour started their conference by voting not to debate Brexit, and finished it with Jeremy Corbyn hardly mentioning it in his closing speech. Unfortunately it seems that on the biggest issue facing the country, Corbyn's Labour has thrown in the towel. Here was a quiet man turning down the volume, especially on Europe. Crucially, the Labour leader confirmed he won't fight for Britain's membership of the Single Market, which is vital for jobs and our economic future. Instead he called for "access" to the European market. But that could mean anything. The reality is that anything less than full membership of the Single Market, as the British car industry today made clear, would risk doing serious damage to jobs and our economy.
We want a democracy that works for everyone: if we are to achieve this, then the principle of equal-seats, effectively restoring the principle of one-member one-vote, ending historic inequalities in our electoral map, must be delivered by a Conservative government.
I first visited Colombia 10 years ago, when covering the demobilisation of right-wing paramilitary groups that had emerged some two decades earlier to fight Marxist guerrilla soldiers. Since then, I have remained very attached to Colombia and its fate. This month, and a decade on from my first visit, the Colombian government has signed a historic peace agreement...
The museum's latest exhibition Fashion on the Ration: 1940s Street Style looks at the creative and thrifty responses to clothes rationing during the Second World War. Not only were the clothes of this time a triumph in colour, creativity and durability, there are some real lessons we can learn from the era where make do and mend was a necessity.
Research has emerged that suggests bullying could be more detrimental to a child's mental health than physical abuse. A US study of 1,420 children found that those who had been bullied, but not maltreated, were almost four times more likely to have mental health problems than children who were maltreated... So why do we continue to diminish the effect bullying has on children's mental health?
So the first question we all had, was what the week actually is. Botanical means that the bakes have to contain something that grows. So... most bakes. Or, they can be something with floral decorations. So... any bake. Woah. Really putting the pressure on this high caliber of bakers. You'd think hash brownies or a magic mushroom loaf would make an appearance - but not a sniff.
It seems when the youngest started school people became awfully interested in her life. People that couldn't have cared less how she passed her time at home with small people in tow suddenly want to know. But do they really? Do they really want to know why she's still at home? What she does all day?
Profit before ethics. I faced this dilemma every day, at every level. A subsequent petty battle over the provision of fair trade tea in the staff canteen was farcical but the message was obvious. If anybody wanted to change things at a high street fashion company they would be banging their heads against a brick wall.
Nothing about Ranieri's side would actually surprise, at this point. Lose 14 in a row and go down? Sure. Win every single game 1-0 from now until Christmas, with a different scorer each time? Why not - they won the league last season.
As the great American poet Langston Hughes put it: "I see that my own hands can make the world that's in my mind". Everyone here and every one of our hundreds of thousands of members has something to contribute to our cause. That way we will unite, build on our policies. Take our vision out to a country crying out for change. We are half a million of us, and there will be more, working together to make our country the place it could be. United we can shape the future and build a fairer Britain in a peaceful world.
