Imagine you were desperate to tell people about something but when you tried no sound came out. Like you'd had some awful spell cast on you that meant only you could hear the words. That's how I think it might feel to be a child who has suffered abuse but struggles to find adults who will act upon their concerns.
My finger hovers over the image of 'loose onions'. Could I get away with it? Avocados are pretty expensive. My heartbeat rises and I peer out of the corner of my eye at the security guard by the door. ..
For many today's raid will simply push the coins further into the murky black waters of the internet where only hackers and developers dare to delve. I mean why trust a currency whose most publicised users are drug lords and drug takers?
Chris Grayling's speech on Monday at Conservative Party conference reads as if the last 40 months didn't even happen. All his talk of tougher sentencing for knife crime and clamping down on use of cautions shamelessly ignores his out of touch Government's record since the last election and their disgraceful lack of support for innocent victims of crime.
Companies are not the only ones to have discovered the opportunities offered by an increasingly globalised world. Some 3,600 criminal gangs are active in more than one country in the EU and of those 70% boast an international work force and 30% commit more than one type of crime. Worldwide organised crime costs the global economy €670 billion a year. Crime on this scale can only be successfully be countered at an international level.
CONTAINS SPOILERS! Breaking Bad has now breathed its last, and with it, Walter White's journey "from Mr Chips to Scarface", as its creator Vince Gilligan put it.
If properly exploited, this 'big data' goldmine could provide valuable insight for the Police, allowing them to do more with less and helping drive efficiencies. Unfortunately, agencies are not exploiting the full value of the data they have.
What struck me about this exchange was the extent to which it revealed a widening disconnect between the haves and have nots, on the level of morals as well as income, exacerbated by the recession and the current government's policy of making the poor pay for an economic mess effectively created by the greed of the rich.
Britain has a serious alcohol problem. Visit any town or city street on a Friday night and you'll witness the serious harm caused by people drinking too much. How we tackle this country's negative relationship with drink is an issue which is rarely off the political agenda.
Context-aware security is about making use of additional information to improve security decisions at the time the decision is made. By doing this, it ensures that more accurate security decisions are taken to provide better protection against advanced threats.
For years we have been arguing that victims want more than just punishment for their offenders - they want them to stop committing crimes and to understand the impact of those crimes. In some cases, victims even want a face-to-face explanation from the criminal about why they committed the offence. When these themes emerge in Albert Square I get the feeling the message is getting through.
In the 80's the Police were very bad at dealing with domestic violence but as the years went by I think we became slightly better at it... However in one important way we failed almost entirely - that is in recognising and dealing with domestic violence against men.
3D printers are coming to Britain. This autumn Selfridges is offering a London-based printing workshop, allowing people to make 3D-printed statuettes of themselves. It's all very exciting, but - like most technology - it has a dark side too and has the potential to kill.
The world is used to identifying the drug war as a US project. A long-time bankroller and cheerleader for punitive drug policies, the United States is typically viewed as a defender of the status quo. But change is in the air in American drug policy.
What really upsets me is so many good people would have given anything to provide Daniel Pelka with a fresh start, a new life with new parents. And a swift and decisive intervention at just the right time would mean he'd still be alive now... Instead, today, we have the grim task of poring through a Serious Case Review laying bare the failures that denied little Daniel this second chance.
It may seem paradoxical but by encouraging the courts to use prison more intelligently, the government might make real strides toward using prison less. And that should be a goal for prison reformers to cheer.
