Cloudy With A Chance Of Leak-Balls: Should We Up Our Cyber-Security After #Election2016?

There are several reasons this happened, but one has haunted me most: Hillary Clinton's leaked emails. Since the "scandal" broke, I've become terrified of hacking. This isn't because I may run for President myself (#SLH2020), but because the vulnerability of the Clinton campaign's email accounts bodes badly for the rest of us.

In the US, The Death Penalty Has Now Become A Way of Life - Is There Any Hope?

Is there any hope? For now, hope seems to lie in the work of those tireless advocates who in the absurdly mundane visitation room at Polunsky courageously play the roles of social worker, friend and champion in an increasingly unforgiving world. Most of all, hope lies behind the soundproof glass, where human beings, continue to endeavour at living a meaningful life ...

Divided We Fall

Richard Neil | Posted 21.11.2016 | UK Politics

An economic crash, a global recession, minorities and immigrants are blamed, the people are divided, the right wing extremists get elected into power and then predictability, a war. If the world really wants a real change, a real difference, then at the moment we are most certainly running mindlessly in the wrong direction from it, with scissors in our hands.

The Symbolisms Of Trump's Win

Now, every one must stand by him. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have already admitted that. So, Trump must be supported by all with the condition that he will work hard to make society better and won't exploit his power for personal boast. If he succeeds, we would be able to confidently infer that his scopes were misinterpreted.

Donald Trump and Mike Pence may try and keep all us women down and take away our rights but I refuse to let him without a fight to the end. This pussy is going to keep fighting back and so can you by donating, even the smallest amount of money will make a difference.

Why I Won't Get US Citizenship For My Daughter

My daughter was born in Britain, so despite having American parents, she's British. My husband and I always intended to get her American citizenship too, but because it involves a fee, paperwork and a day spent at the US embassy in Edinburgh, we kept putting it off.

We're Misung Social Media - And It's Ruining Democracy

But we also have the opportunity to use social media to broaden our horizons. If not to adopt other viewpoints, then at least to open our minds to them so that we can better understand each other.

What Kind Of Woman Would Vote For Trump?

Naomi Cooper | Posted 14.11.2016 | UK Politics
Naomi Cooper

As the presidency of a man with a documented disregard and dislike for women unfolds, no one will pay more heavily for their own vote than these women. Meanwhile, when asked what kind of woman would vote for Trump, the rest of the educated, civilised world can only reply: a deeply threatened one.

Trump's Ghost Of A Mandate

Ciaran Gillespie | Posted 14.11.2016 | UK Politics
Ciaran Gillespie

Manifestos and policy outlines don't just serve to offer detail about what will be done by an administration, they also offer some restrictions as to what won't be. Trump has a frighteningly unbounded mandate, arising from a lack of sustained interrogation of the basis for his pledges at every step of the campaign.

Rise Of America's Ultrapersonal President

Alex Amari | Posted 14.11.2016 | UK Universities & Education

Once upon a time in the United States, political parties ruled the political landscape. They internally nominated candidates, mounted campaign operations, and were held collectively responsible for the successes and failures of government. In recent decades, however, the relevance of the traditional two-party system has steadily declined.

The Lesson That All Progressives Should Learn From Trump

I had to take a deep breath last night when a work colleague of mine - a young, gay man - called me over on my break because he wanted to talk about Donald Trump. "Isn't it exciting?" he said, "Trump is something completely different, I'd probably have voted for him. He isn't a politician, he's something new."

As much as we need robots, robots need us to get to the promised land of harmonious, fluid and genuinely helpful AI support. And right now we are the ones guilty of not investing in the relationship.

Trump's Victory Shows The Manifestation Of America's Discontent

DONALD Trump's announcement to run for presidency in June 2015 was met largely with laughter and disbelief. Almost 18 months later, his seismic election victory sends shockwaves through America and again causes people to disbelieve- though there are few laughing this time round...

The consequences of that could be more catastrophic than anything we have ever known, read or heard. A world without choice and freedom of speech is more terrifying than a world with a voice to whom we, in our millions, are wary.

So here I am, Mum, Dad. Witnessing something colossal on the world stage, in the week where we remember events we thought could never be repeated. For the first time in my life I believe that they genuinely could. And for the first time in my life I feel compelled to define who I am, and witness my friends doing the same.

As the brilliant LBC presenter James O'Brien said this week, by voting for Trump, 'people have voted to make their lives better and others' lives worse.' The same can be said for the people who voted to leave the EU.

Don't moan, don't whine. Engage and fight on. But what we need right now - last Obama quote I promise - is "a sense of unity, a sense of inclusion, a respect for our institutions, our way of life, rule of law, and respect for each other." Because if we keep our minds and hearts open through these difficult times then perhaps we'll actually get somewhere in the next four years.

Like most people today across the globe, I can't think of much else other than the fact that Donald Trump has been elected President of the United States. I went to sleep the night before whilst Hillary had a comfortable lead, safe in the knowledge that the Democrats would be elected, everything would make sense and no political hegemony would be smashed that night. Boy was I wrong.

In an age where military technology is getting increasingly high-tech, America's best line of defence may be in attack - baring their teeth at any country daring to challenge them. Teeth? Geddit? Also, racism.

Democracy And The Election Of Donald Trump

Melanie Eusebe | Posted 09.11.2016 | UK Politics

We need to instil more engagement and empowerment through our government representatives with the citizens of a democracy, so that socio economic issues are not all grouped together once every four years, and results such as these do not knock us sideways, but have been listened to, understood and reflected in our government long before we engage in constitutional decisions such as Presidential elections and EU membership.

I Am A Black Woman And Today President Trump Is My Hero

I fell in love with Trump's personality because of his moral principles. As a woman who loves children, to me any man who puts the life of unborn babies first has got a good heart. I cannot even fathom that people can support partial birth abortions. Donald Trump condemns this evil practice, and for that alone, he won my heart.
