As you might expect, 'athlete' and 'firefighter' are two of the most sought after jobs for children. But it wasn't a surprise to me to find 'astronaut' and 'scientist' holding their own in the top ten as well. Why not? Defying gravity, even zero gravity, must be one of the most exciting scientific developments of our time, and children everywhere want to be a part of it.

As much as you are excited, hold off on mass broadcasting until you have at least announced the news to your nearest and dearest. Tell them to hold off too, in order to give you both a chance to tell the news yourselves. If you can do this face to face then fantastic, but if not, pick up the phone.

The Reaction To Patton Oswalt's Engagement Proves We Don't Understand Grief

Jessica Hanson | Posted 10.07.2017 | UK Lifestyle

For grief counsellors, it's become almost a mantra: "There is no timeline for grief." This idea that there's a neat timeline of 'mourning', 'getting over it' and 'ready to re-marry' is not only wrong, it's directly harmful to those coping with grief. So many bereaved people beat themselves up for not being 'over it' yet, or for moving on too quickly. The truth is that ways of grieving are as diverse and different as the people grieving and it's nobody else's business how someone reacts to the death of their partner.

It is no secret that wedding planning is changing. In fact, the wedding industry has arguably valued tradition more than any other, so this disruption we're seeing is more than just change--it is a revolution.

Engagement Could Be The Tonic To 'Tinkerbell' Theories Of Government

For my money, giving the public more say - and encouraging them to put themselves in decision-makers' shoes in so doing - is a key part of the solution. The more people are brought in on dilemmas the more the present impasse can be reduced - and the more Tinkerbell theories of government can be put to bed.

How To Survive Your First Wedding Fair

A big reason brides and couples come to wedding shows is because it's a great way to speak to a bunch of suppliers face-to-face at the same time. Bargain hunter brides should use the opportunity to haggle direct with them, and you'll find some will prove more than willing to do you a deal.

Citizenship Education: Looking Back, Moving Forward

Josh Dell | Posted 09.02.2017 | UK Politics
Josh Dell

Never before have the British people been asked so frequently to take decisions with monumental consequences. Yet in the build-up to the recent EU Referendum , it is arguable that one of the most common claims made by citizens young and old was "I want more information" and/or "I don't understand the issue enough to be able to vote with confidence". In this scenario, the direct democracy of a referendum is left open to manipulation by those with more information, and therefore more power. So where does the solution lie?

It's far less pressure to spend time looking for rings online, on your own, so that you can compare gradings, carat sizes and reviews of the jewellers. You can also decide if you want to search around for discount codes or wait for a sale, which you are unlikely to do if you are shopping together.
