Chaos and 'An Economy That Works'

Dr Arlo Brady

I've never been a huge fan of the butterfly effect. The idea that small changes have big effects - like the eponymous fluttering of distant butterfly wings creating the appearance of a hurricane weeks later - can, I have always felt, lead to rather pessimistic thoughts. At its worst, blaming momentous events on a butterfly lets us abrogate our responsibility to tackle big problems with the phrase - "Oh, there's nothing I can do about it".

BT Must Come Clean About Possible Drone Strikes Role

Kevin Lo | Posted 23.09.2014 | UK
Kevin Lo

While justice will still seem a long way away for the victims of drone strikes, Q and A sessions like this at least give a glimmer of hope. It is deeply unfortunate that we live in a society where one of the largest telecommunications companies in the world can simply ignore concerns of its involvement in serious human rights abuses.

Motorbikes Can Help Save Lives

Riding motorbikes is a great leveller. It doesn't matter who you are, what you do, or where you're from, motorbikes really bond people. But they do more than that. They can also save lives. It's no secret that I love mucking about on bikes; I work with a UK charity called Riders for Health (RFH) and when I heard they needed a hand taking a bike to a health worker in a remote African village - I was more than happy to help. Riders for Health is a brilliant organisation providing off-road motorcycles for health workers all over rural Zambia. Thousands of people wouldn't get healthcare if it wasn't for them.
