The sharpest tragedy in the Pistorius scandal is the death of a young, intelligent woman - Reeva Steenkamp. Yet, the whole episode also threatens to strike a dagger into last year's Olympic legacy. For all that Pistorius did to prove the irrelevance of disability; he is now the blade runner that malfunctioned.

Why Can't Our Olympians Just Be... Olympians?

Sammy Sultan

With Tom Daley as the face of Splash!, we are perilously close to a terrain where our Olympic generation is immersed with second-rate celebrities. Louis Smith recently won Strictly Come Dancing, and whilst I accept the importance for these athletes to cash in whilst they can, I cannot help but feel disappointed.

Humankind Cannot Bear Very Much (More) Reality

"Humankind cannot bear very much reality", suggested the poet TS Eliot many years ago. Well: I can't bear very much more right now. When I heard Kermit the Frog providing the soundtrack for a James Villas holiday advert a few days ago, I had my 2013 January epiphany. Celebrity TV has jumped the shark.

Condoms, when properly used, can help prevent STI and HIV transmission. If you're sexually active, use your judgement and ask whether your partner has been tested. Better yet, why not nix the suspense and make getting regular STI screenings a New Year's resolution?

"This ain't the last you've seen of me!" shrieked Kemal Shahin at the cameras, the ninth person to leave the Big Brother House in 2005. Apart from a couple of random cameos, that really was the last we saw of him.

Last Night A DJ Saved My Life

DJ Lora

My last post was all about how I became a DJ. Fifteen years later, I've learnt a lot. I'd be a bit concerned if I hadn't, really. I've put in the hours, I've served my time as the warm up DJ, playing to empty clubs, getting no recognition.

Ambi Sitham

Innocent until proven guilty is the modus operandi for the legal system in the UK and as a lawyer I am eminently aware of that concept. However, I found myself reading the reports about Collins' behaviour during his relationship with Anna Larke with a sense of uncomfortable recollection of my own painful memories from my first ever relationship whilst a teenager.

When and where was it acceptable for grown men to sexually assault children? Savile is dead but plenty of people who may have been involved in criminal acts - either as perpetrators or as victims are still alive and that this may have happened still matters today.

Increasingly, social networks demand all-or-nothing, full exposé, total access to your life, or you're not playing the game. It's not enough to stand on the sidelines, with an link to an amusing headline. There must be equal trading with those who are inclined to reveal all. The celebrity market is used to these demands.
