Every year, 50,000 women in the UK are diagnosed with breast cancer. That's 50,000 mothers, daughters, grandmothers, sisters and friends. To highlight the importance of breast cancer awareness, The Huffington Post UK is running a month-long project throughout October, showcasing a series of features and videos that offer a new take on a disease which has plagued the human race for years and years. A disease which has taken countless lives, and will continue to do so, until we find a cure.
We said supporting Jeremy's leadership was in the best interests of our members. Just days after his re-election, this fresh attack on employment rights to pave the way for tens of thousands more job cuts -- which we will obviously fight -- provides real proof that we were right to do so.
It appears that foreign powers, including those with the most appalling human rights records, can demand that passports of their citizens can be confiscated by foreign powers. The question is why is the British government going along with this? Amazingly enough despite all the heated condemnatory language, the British government has done just that on behalf of the Assad regime.
"The central task of the whole Labour party," Corbyn said, "must be to rebuild trust and support to win the next general election." I agree. I just wish he had put a bit more flesh on the bones - and I wish he had told his party activists that they need to start talking much more to former Labour voters in key constituencies and much less to each other.
Repeating over and over again that you want to win elections does not constitute a strategy, a vision, or a project. On the contrary, the primary objective is to make party members understand that they can only aspire to affect positive change on the world if they defer to the experts and professionalised political actors who make up the Parliamentary Labour Party and their assorted entourage.
There's nothing anti-religious about advocating for secular schools that are open, inclusive and equally welcoming to all children, whatever their religion and belief backgrounds. Religion is fine for those that want it, but Britain's rapidly changing religious landscape screams for the scaling back of religious control of the classroom.
A turning point came when I discovered there were women like me, women who shared some of my feelings and worries. When C.S. Lewis wrote "Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: 'What you, too? Thought I was the only one'" he could never have imagined the friendships which grow between people affected by cancer
Remember when I included James Arthur in 'The Big Three' a couple of weeks ago and everyone asked me why? CHECK THE CHARTS NOW, FOLKS. Check. The charts. Who fancies some new music..?
The data paints a stark picture. In some groups of the population it is stabilising, while in other groups it is worsening. Nowhere is it improving. We can now start to see the true scale of an issue which has been stigmatised for centuries and it is deeply worrying for all.
Sarah Jessica Parker and I have three things in common- curly hair, a passion for beautiful, impractical shoes and a love of Ferris Bueller. Recently, I discovered that we share something else, or rather our children do. Her son and my daughter both have a potentially life-threatening food allergy
The implications of artificial intelligence, or "computer systems able to perform tasks requiring human intelligence", have been a discussion point ever since the term was coined back in the 1950's and it continues to generate both wonder and unease in equal measure.
The 20 week anomaly scan is one of the pinnacle moments of any pregnancy. In the majority of cases, when the baby is healthy, it is the second and final time you'll see your baby on screen before you meet face-to-face.
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.
