So you've decided to move down South - or should I say 'Saaaath'. Congratulations. You are stepping out of your comfort zone and about to embark upon far away lands with tropical climates, you can even take your July to August wardrobe with you in March. Be careful though, you are saying goodbye to anything battered.
We need to make the system accessible for everyone that uses it and I believe this is where privatisation would help. If we are financially able then we should be taking responsibility for paying for our healthcare - ultimately this would reduce the burden, provide funding for better quality care and still support a system whereby people who are on benefits receive free or discounted healthcare.
Most businesses dream of going global, and British tech companies are no exception to the rule. But while it seems obvious that the latest crop of Silicon Roundabout trailblazers (tech firms based in London's Tech City) should expand to their Silicon "sister" in California, that might not always be the right choice.
Having just returned from a wonderful twenty-four hours at Cliveden House in Berkshire, I was reminded why England remains to be such an incredibly popular tourist attraction. Other countries absolutely have their own unique selling points but England easily competes for the tourist trade despite our propensity for rain, unfriendly prices and bad traffic.
Gary Neville should be the next England manager. He might not have the experience managing at club level, but has nearly four years on Hodgson's coaching staff to back him up, plus two decades of playing under Sir Alex at Manchester United. You learn a thing or two in a situation like that. His punditry is one piece of evidence in that regard.
Patrick Stewart, Brian Blessed, Jarvis Cocker and the man who invented the toilet; Yorkshire has a lot to boast about. But David Cameron's only gon...
I've been thinking all day about how I can find the words for what we experienced last week. An hours drive from my house, then half an hour on the Eurotunnel, and we were in the world's worst refugee camp in terms of resources and conditions, yet we were welcomed with open arms. It's amazing how only the people who have nothing really know how to share.
We had been in Hong Kong for five days, marvelling at their mild December. Through osmosis, I'd learnt even more about the culture than I already knew. But there were still parts of my history that I hadn't really considered until I was here, having dinner with long lost everyones and watching everyday life play out for the people who shared my DNA.
Since the Conservative party "won" the UK general election on May 7th, people have taken to the streets across the UK in a defiant display of disenchantment with the electoral system and the austerity consensus of the major political parties. The prospect of 5 more years of crippling austerity has prompted many to reclaim the future of UK politics.
As we learn more about biological systems and their nature in the context of the Earth as a single system, we begin to understand the natural nanotechnology involved. Just as birds inspired flight so the camouflage of octopi and the colours of butterflies inspire new levels of control over material.
