As a small organisation fighting a big enemy, Terry gave us the confidence to think bigger. He led a march to Downing Street, delivering a petition to then Prime Minister Gordon Brown demanding fairer funding for dementia science.
Us Brits are obsessed with owning our own homes and millennials are no exception. The problem is while our parents managed to get onto the property ladder in their early 20s, young people beat themselves up for being nowhere near that point.
In an era of anxiety about the proliferation of fake news, and the need to support British creative and commercial success internationally, protecting the best of the BBC and encouraging it to innovate and excel has never been more important. So it is of deep concern that recent months have seen growing anxiety that government policy is threatening both the independence of the BBC and its continuing ability to deliver core activities.
To deal with mental health issues, I believe that the understanding and sharing of information is key. By encouraging conversation about sensitive topics such as mental health, we become better equipped to deal with the issues that are related to it, as well as reducing the stigma around the topic.
There is a lot happening in Europe also during this 100 days. Britain is beginning the formal process of Brexit and the Dutch will hold elections which could herald the next step in the transatlantic populist march. And of course, the French will gear up for their own election in which the National Front will be the focus of much attention. It is an extraordinary time on both sides of the Atlantic. This exceptional moment demands examination and analysis. So the BBC is launching 100 Days, a daily programme that gives us the chance to look at these global shifts.
The Women's March wasn't - in the end - all about one man. It was about mothers, sisters, daughters - and yes - husbands, brothers and sons too, whole families turning out to prove that they care about the future, and they want it to be the best it can be.
'Clean' may well have lost its way, but that's down to people misunderstanding what it's all about. Most proponents and followers of clean eating are not saying that scoffing anything else is 'dirty', nor are they seeing clean eating as a medicine that's a cure-all.
It's not too late for both to turn back, to start to talk about positive news, to express understanding for the difficult job both do, to seek to educate and explain and engage with the public both are meant to serve. Here's hoping they will. But with Trump now taking office it looks certain to get worse before it gets better.
Life being what it is, you sort of know the ending. Sooner or later, you're going to die. Sorry for giving anything away, but you are. One day the scr...
I write this piece not to overspeak or cisplain the horrific attack on the Trans+ community which just occurred, but in the hopes that by sharing my experience it may amplify the many trans voices screaming against the dark, so that those who attempt to deny their voice will know that they are supported by the rest of the LGBT+ community.
It might seem trivial, but the sketch has done a good job. What else has done the job of raising awareness and if anything discouraging vulnerable people from swapping their semi-detached in Birmingham for sweeping the floors in Syria?
By having more disabled people on our TV screens, only then will I no longer get people asking stupid questions such as 'Can you have sex?' 'Have you ever tried to talk just to see what would happen?' and 'Are you as clever as that Stephen Hawking bloke?'
If you haven't seen Sherlock series 1,2,3,4 keep reading, you won't understand anything anyway. Image author's own *For the non-Brits, Cumberbatc...
So our contemporary Sherlock has swapped his magnifying glass for a mobile. But as co-creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss point out, this smartphone-savvy approach is not out of keeping with Arthur Conan Doyle's original creation. Holmes has always been technologically adept.
Not defined by ethnicity and history but unquestionably heavily influenced. Understanding that the story of black and white division through time is not always black and white.
As a scientist who has followed developments on global warming for nearly 30 years I am dismayed at the number of trees and flowers blossoming as the Christmas lights go up. Nature is confused and it is an indicator of just how warm the world has become.
