The Met Office now has a team of space weather advisors, monitoring and forecasting potential disruption to the UK due to extra terrestrial events. By this, I mean the possible disruption to the technologies and infrastructure we all now heavily depend upon, including communications systems, power networks, satellite services like GPS, and the aviation industry.
What helps if you have depression is realising that you are not alone, that this 'illness' actually exists like any other physical illness; you are not making it up and you are not some self-indulgent, self-obsessed narcissist who's looking for pity or an excuse not show up at work or school.
While the exact reason for the request has not been disclosed, I can't help but wonder if it has anything to do with the somewhat inappropriate and at times trollish comments left by users alongside pictures of the 25-year-old and her family.
If you are one of the many people who hadn't heard of SuicideGirls until a couple of days ago, then let me clear things up for you. Despite the name and some of the press reports that it makes death look good; it's not some sort of Pro-ana website for suicide. It's simply a community of people who challenge the ideals of beauty and also celebrates alternative cultures.
Some artistic revolutions are only recognised in hindsight, some spotted when they're actually happening. Vasari knew he was living through a Renaissance, so did Brian Epstein. As Stewart Lee's 3rd television series comes to an end it's clear to me that nothing less than a one-man revolution in stand-up comedy has occurred.
I have been asking listeners to share their memories of that time and specifically, when they realised they were part of the 90s movement which became known as Britpop. One listener in particular had the most incredible reason for vivid memories of that time - his wedding day. A day immortalised on the iconic cover of Pulp's album, A Different Class.
You've probably heard a few things I've done, maybe 'Teardrop' by Massive Attack, the title song for the TV show 'House MD', or the track I did with David Bowie for the movie 'Moulin Rouge'. You might even have a copy of an album by Massive Attack and played the video game 'Halo 4'.
I feel betrayed. Not that she was an important part of my every day life- I just feel deflated and disappointed that another role model has given in to the stigma of carrying the LGBT tag. Perhaps she just didn't understand the knock on effect it would cause to her younger LGBT fans - many regarding her as a hero to look up to.
I trained for six months for my first one, from sofa to start line, as I'd never run at all before that. It was hard, very hard. I could barely do three miles. Then I realised that running isn't always a physical battle, my fight was in my head. Since I broke through that barrier of thinking 'I can't do it' I've been hooked, and there's nothing quite like the sense of achievement when you complete a run. Exercise helps me to feel in control of my body. Control was something I didn't have when I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2002 at 34 years old.
Scientific evidence has shown that neurons (brain cells) can rewire and change patterns throughout your lifetime as a result of your experiences and how you think about them. So your thoughts affect the physiology of your brain and the physiology affects your thoughts.
Double acts might be easy to name in the worlds of comedy or music, even in film, but in the visual arts the myth tends to run more to trouble than double.
I wonder if the word 'bossy' is a western term, I can't quite imagine having been in the Kiberan slums someone ever being referred to as bossy. A survivor yes, bossy, I doubt it. So, if you are fortunate enough to have strong-willed girls in your life make sure your words and actions promote their natural leadership skills, empower them not destroy them.
As I woke up at 4am to do a nappy change last night, grappling with the darn thing half asleep myself and trying not to wake the sleeping baby, it suddenly dawned on me... Who would be doing this for Peaches Geldof's two boys now she has gone, and how on earth was their father Tom Cohen going to cope?
The Asian Awards were born out of a simple vision; to create an event, which would honour only the very highest levels of achievement from within the worldwide Asian community; to create one of the most important events of its kind ever to be staged.
Courtney Love has told the NME it's "very likely" that her late husband's story and music will be adapted for the Broadway stage. At last, Nirvana fans will have the chance to pay more than £50 a ticket to watch some jobbing hoofers projectile defecate over Kurt Cobain's legacy.
I passionately believe that we have to stall this slump in the youth vote. And then reverse it. We are in real danger of letting down an entire generation. We need to force politicians to care by hitting them where it hurts - the ballot box. Which brings me onto Russell Brand...
