The security team faced a choice, overtake the hapless cyclist at the back to get behind their man or watch as the gap between the two riders grew. Ha...
I was recently asked by someone why I do or want, to carry on doing what I do. It's such a simple question yet it startled me. It's easy enough to jump into a knee-jerk textbook answer but its really hard to articulate why it really is that you do what you do (short of things like necessity, habit, or lack of choice). The 'why not' is not a valid answer.
It's time to debunk the myth. For too long now, many commentators believed that CMOs would soon be spending more on IT than the CIO... So what's the reality?
It's modernism in its purist form and the distilled vision of Mark Powell, a stylist and tailor whose sartorial individualism of thirty years standing has made itself known in places as far flung as New York City, Tokyo and Firenze.
We need more young people to enter the labour market fully equipped for a life of work, as enterprising first-time employees. Current employers - 70 per cent of them according to a CBI survey - do not think that school leavers are sufficiently ready for the world of work.
If ad verification isn't taken seriously, it will be the end of digital advertising as we know it. The industry has to grow and the only way it can is through universal verification that is accepted by the entire ecosystem.

You are almost certainly well-educated, quite possibly with a university degree that has equipped you with an excellent foundation of knowledge and skills - theoretically that's a pretty good starting point
We all know she's had plastic surgery, wears wigs, and has spent a fortune on her looks, as she so often quotes 'it takes a lot of money to look this cheap!'... The next thing you'll know, there will be a degree course in how to build a brand the Dolly Parton way.
The advantages of raising the minimum wage seem to be very clear - motivated staff leading to higher productivity and lower turnover, a lower benefits bill and greater spending power in communities
More than 50 leading scientists from 15 countries have appealed to the World Health Organisation (WHO) to ensure e-cigarettes are not classified as the same as traditional cigarettes.
To the roboticists of course, potential practical applications for such products are endless - including within business, education and security.
Revelations about Facebook experiments are waking us up to the fact that these services are not neutral, neither are they simply there for the public good. Yet they are now an integral part of our lives...
Why don't we have the big ideas that the U.S. seems to capitalise upon so instantly? ... Britain's hesitant risk-taking culture, lack of venture capitalist funding availability, and lack of established mentors in the high tech area are what put Britain at a distinct entrepreneurial tech disadvantage.
Fracking presents a new challenge for OPEC, as well as opportunities. The International Energy Agency (IEA) predicts that, over the next five years, one-third of the new oil production of the world will be developed in the USA. By 2020, the US will be a net exporter of gas. By 2035. It will be energy self-sufficient, they say...
