Open Relationships for Monogamous People

Louisa Leontiades

There's a rumour going around, propagated by [some] polyamorists, that polyamory is a superior ideology to monogamy. Let's face it, 'limitless love' does sound wholly honorable and blissful, even if 'limitless sex' with multiple partners sounds ~ for most of our sex-negative society ~ quite the opposite.

Beauty Blog #6: Hair FAQs

Katy Harrington | Posted 25.05.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Katy Harrington

I used to dread going to the hairdresser, chiefly because the stylist always touched my hair as if it was an envelope marked 'anthrax', rolled their eyes when I asked for 'more blonde' and could barely conceal their laughter when I produced pictures torn from magazines of Kate Bosworth (fair enough).

Dragana Brown | Posted 22.03.2014 | UK Politics
Dragana Brown

Irrespective of whether Hollande was involved in another relationship or not, for I am not here to cast judgement, the question of integrity is one to raise on the basis of Hollande's choices to hide behind and use as an excuse French cultural ways, rather than stand as a true leader and be completely transparent.

In Whom We Trust

Currently I believe that what is urgently required is greater truth and integrity from those in whom we put our trust. The trouble is, the embedded culture of secrecy and obfuscation makes this objective extremely difficult to achieve. Moreover, simply increasing performance measures and targets will definitely not help.

No man is an island. All of us need to ensure that we have a good diversity of friendships in our lives, it is essential to our mental health. In order to promote this we need to change the negative, hardening messages our boys receive from an early age. 'Be strong, boys don't cry, tough it out, don't show pain, be brave my little soldier, man up, you wuss!'

Why Don't More People Engage in Whistleblowing?

Dr Steve McCabe | Posted 16.09.2013 | UK
Dr Steve McCabe

We need to have a society where more credit is given to those who, because of their inside knowledge of organisational wrong-doing, chose to expose the truth. Unless this happens, the sort of scandals in the seen in the NHS, finance and banking and politics in terms of false expenses, to name but a few, will continue with monotonous regularity.

The word 'confrontation' terrifies the Twinings out of the Brits. I believe us not bravely communicating our feelings is a gigantic reason for divorce, illness and a plethora of bad behaviour.

How Honest Are We Really?

Is it just me or does everyone else have a hard time telling the truth to a stranger? If I see my close friends and family wearing something that makes them look hideous, I tell them, and I expect the same from them. But there is a fine line between telling them the truth and being plain old rude.

Being honest about the limits that face us but having a clear set of priorities shaping our actions allows for a more honest, more human and more humane politics to be shaped.

Is Boeing Big Enough to Say It's Wrong... Or Is It Too Big to Do So?

Jane Sparrow | Posted 29.03.2013 | UK
Jane Sparrow

"We stand behind its overall integrity" declares the official statement from Boeing regarding the grounding of its fleet of 787s. This brings images to my mind of 'Chemical Ali' - the Iraqi minister who declared that they were winning the war, as Baghdad burnt behind him.

3 Universal Rules For Happiness

I think actually this is just our subconscious playing avoidance tactics with us; always striving to find happiness outside of ourselves, not wanting to have to look closer to home and realise that all the answers lie within us (there's a famous quote there somewhere!).
