This week world leaders gathering in New York will make decisions that affect the future of billions. These are decisions that could end some of the most prominent issues of our time. Like ending extreme poverty. Fighting inequality and injustice. Fixing climate change. In all countries. For all people. We have a huge opportunity and we must take it.
Hanson is aware that rejection and failure are a part of the acting process, and happily he hasn't been knocked off his stride since Stephen Ward. He has just finished at the Park Theatre in North London, where he played alongside his son Tom (his daughter Molly is also an actor) in 'The Gathered Leaves'...
The Kardashians, everybody knows them but not everybody knows how to BE them, and isn't that kind of the whole point of life these days? So on that note, here are a list of things you can do to keep up with the Kardashians...
I sometimes sit and let my imagination run wild when playing Beatles tracks on Absolute Radio - I wistfully stare out of the studio window and try to transport myself back to when the song was written and wonder what went on. I'd love to have been a fly on the wall during those legendary Abbey Road recording sessions.
A mother's love for her children is immeasurable. Her instinct is to protect her children, to nurture them, to teach them and watch them grow. This maternal drive does not know geographical or economic boundaries, and it is something I saw in every mother I spoke to on my trip.
I had a stellar front row and was happy to see some of my best friends' faces - Alexa Chung, Nick Grimshaw, Daisy Lowe and Nicola Roberts, to name a few - beaming with pride (oh, and my mum!) as I unveiled all of my favourite new designs for the next season.
So much to choose from - the fruit, donuts and balls sex exhibition party, naked pub crawls, kundalini cooking classes, the orgasmatron experience, slut Olympics, booty shines, workshops on how to turn your panties into a face mask, male stripping, spanking at Spankies and - my favorite - the strap-a-thon in Beavertown for women and transgender people only.
Fast fashion corporations have outsourced production to poor countries. In the process, they enslave them by addicting them to the idea of enrichment and start driving production costs down with volumes. Like any good pusher, they offer their potential clients a great deal, only to get them addicted. Once they've succeeded, they're in the driving seat. In the case of poor economies, they addict them to the idea of lifting their people out of poverty. In fact, they're like the big bad wolf, lying in wait for the dependency to start.
If 'charity begins at home' means that you should take care of family, close friends and neighbours, then yes, shouldn't we all be doing that anyway? ...
Now if us men are going to reach for the grooming cabinet and use a bit of help whether it be a bit of fake tan or perhaps shaping of the eyebrows we need to make sure it's subtle. I'm sure we have all been guilty of dodgy fake tan lines or going overboard with the tweezers!
The fashion industry is high pressure and fast moving but nothing can be put on hold. My team and myself can't slack off for a moment - unless of course it's to tend to my gorgeous French bulldog Peggy who can often be found distracting everyone around the building. (She knows she's the real boss around here!) So, yes, it's all a bit manic but it's rather fun manic. It reminds me of Christmas at our headquarters in east London because we send stuff down to the factories to get made; new fabrics and finished samples arrive and everyday there is something new to open.
I know that I won't be less of a person if I don't have children. But for women, the societal time limits which are in place for women are restrictive and not necessary. Its 2015, are we still valuing other people's happiness on if they are married or have children?
The more women who hear Fearne talk about her experience, the more they will be moved to see how they can prepare for their birth which creates a huge opportunity for all hypnobirthing practitioners to explain what hypnobirthing is really about.
We've all heard the "if you haven't got something nice to say, don't say it" spiel. But freedom of speech is an important human entitlement and Hopkins is right to voice her thoughts. However awful, at least they give conscientious people the opportunity to undermine her with compassionate, reasoned stances.
Every year we launch a campaign designed to galvanise fundraisers all across the UK, and last year you did us proud by helping raise a staggering £49.1million. Looking forward, I'm proud to launch our 2015 Appeal supported by a range of familiar faces; though look twice as they might not be who you expect.
So here's to Friends. May it be shown on some obscure TV channel for many years to come. I hope it's still on when I am old and grey, so I can say 'oh. Those guys. They have always (cheesy pun alert) been there for me'.
