We need to embrace conscious capitalism with businesses taking a more active role in communities through smarter giving of time, skills and mentoring.

For a band that have been making music for over twelve years, they have lasted the duration and solidly. Through excessive highs and textbook rock and roll lows Keane are still standing strong with the ability to sell out stadiums across the globe.

It was a remarkably diverse cross-section of punters that descended on the south bank's Royal Festival Hall last night; Randy Newman's dual role of cult, irreverent songwriter and Disney's composer in residence has provided him with an oddball audience that ranges from septuagenarian liberals to prepubescent Pixar fans.
