Morning all and happy hump day!

Groovy scenes on blogs as well with Emily Buchanan's post about why she won't be posting a make-up free selfie still doing the business. Which is handy, as today, we're leading with Aaron Eccles, head of social media of Cancer Research and how they turned around a meme that wasn't even theirs and have raised £8m so far off the back of it.

We've then got comedy legend Ruby Wax and a fantastic post on how to use mindfulness as an internal weathervane to help ward off incoming bouts of depression.

Our very own political director Mehdi Hasan gives19 questions Nick Clegg should ask Nigel Farage in tonight's LBC debate and Sky News anchor Kay Burley wades in with her take on who will land the killer blow in the battle.

John Cridland, the director general of the CBI meanwhile says that the SNP's economic plan for Scottish independence doesn't add up and comedy star Olivia Lee writes on what the problem is with today's mensfolk ahead of her new TV show Man Up.

Sir Tony Hawkhead, chief exec of Action for Children blogs on the shocking statistic they've released today that one in 10 children in the UK suffer from neglect, and Jason Holmes interviews the Modfather, Paul Weller, about his new menswear range.

Elsewhere, student Lee Pedder highlights his friend Yashika Bageerathi's battle to fight deportation, Green Party leader Natalie Bennett says fracking is wrong (again) and Rebecca Sparrow applauds Cameron Diaz's stance that we should all embrace ageing and not be scared of it.

Xavier Bosch muses on who is right in the NUT strikes, Ciaran Donaghy reckons Newcastle's Ben Arfa is adored for doing nothing, stage four cancer sufferer Rachel Brown says what being in remission is really like and Fionn Shiner reflects on how to face your third year crisis at uni with looming exams and dissertations- and the possible abyss that lies beyond when you face Real Life (hint - it's not too shabby, so in Olivia Lee's words, just man up!)
