Sam Fraser

No, no, no! Let me make it clear; I have not had sex with Simon Hoare, Conservative MP for North Dorset. I shall leave that to Mrs Hoare. I want to talk about why Simon Hoare MP voted against an amendment which would make Sex and Relationships Education in schools mandatory.

What Does It Take To See The Light?

You would think that life changing experiences were potentially defined by their rarity. By a stand out quality or uniqueness that makes them exquisite and precious by virtue of them being one of a kind. An experience for you alone.

Did You Know That You Cannot Fail At Being Human?

This article is for those who doubt, who seek perfection, who judge, who struggle to avoid failure at all costs, for those who feel something is missing in them. This is for those who need to justify themselves, who struggle to find proof that they are a complete and good person.

Terrible Events Of 2016 Show We Are All In This Together

Richard Corbett | Posted 29.12.2016 | UK
Richard Corbett

We need change that builds, rather than destroys. That means controlling arms supplies as the Arms Trade Treaty already requires governments to do. It means offering a refuge to those fleeing violence and persecution, as the Refugee Convention has for decades prescribed. We must also develop a Global Compact on Migration, to protect migrants, so often as vulnerable as refugees, and to manage migration for the benefit of all. If the terrible events of 2016 are not to be repeated, the calls for change to make the world more secure and inclusive must be heard and acted on. Nadi's experience may seem a million miles away from ours but we share the same thread of laws and norms that are supposed to keep us safe. Ultimately we are all in this together.

Trump War With Peace, Misery With Joy and #Trumphatewithlove

Kimberley Burbidge | Posted 11.11.2016 | UK Politics
Kimberley Burbidge

If we all do something, anything, each and every day to show that hatred and division will never rule in our own lives, this mountain of small and arguably prosaic acts of humanity, cannot but inspire others to follow suit...and then, maybe then, Trump will be rendered impotent and will get back in his box.

On Love And Cynicism

Arthur Peirce | Posted 25.10.2016 | UK Universities & Education
Arthur Peirce

As much as humans are social creatures, they are fundamentally creatures of love. It is itself, a motive, goal, and resolution. For many it's a reason to be, and it is the only reason that I think we can combat, or in the very least, remain sane in the constant horrors of our present world.

There is no greater need than now to bring together humanity regardless of colour race and religion to unite against the threats we face. The world is facing a difficult time. This is no time for hate. This is a time for humanity and love. This is a time for unity.

Empathy: Digital, Done, and Dusted

Empathy is arguably one of the - if not, the - most crucial factors to the success of Homo sapiens as a species. Without it, we would not be able to form the social bonds that allowed us to fast-track evolution through culture and communication.

Child Slavery in Britain? It's Time to Lose the Stiff Upper Lip

Kate Tunstall | Posted 05.04.2017 | UK
Kate Tunstall

There are occasions when I find myself wondering whether some of us are too compassionate for our own good. We feel things deeply and we're affected to such a degree that we can't comfortably partake in activities others take for granted. For example, there are particular films which for the most part, we avoid.

End Impossible Choices, Choose Humanity

Hervé Verhoosel

Impossible choices are being made every day by more than 125 million people affected by crises and natural disasters. In fact, we are in the midst of the worst large-scale humanitarian crisis of our lifetime. Not since World War II have more people around the world been in desperate need of assistance as a direct result of ongoing conflict and violence.

It occurred to me that when he had got on the train, he instinctively gravitated closer towards me, another human being, to share his evening. We humans are social animals, and contact with others is very important to us. Having sat down opposite me, he ate his dinner and enjoyed his daughter's laughter in my company.

Walking along the Tube platform I noticed an elderly couple. The woman was on the train, and, through the open doors, she was holding the hands of a man. They were gazing at each other. The emotion in both their faces was palpable. Something was being said between them, unspoken.

What Is the Purpose of Education?

Frederika Roberts

What do you think the purpose of education is? If you agree things need to change, what will you do about it? Whether you're a headteacher or a class teacher, at any stage of education, whether you're a parent, or a pupil, you have the power to make a difference in the small daily deliberate actions you take.

The Human Animal vs the Human Machine

Katherine Templar Lewis | Posted 30.09.2016 | UK Tech

We fear human intelligence, emotion, consciousness, in robots. But is this even possible? We cannot, should not, compare two types of 'brains' that process in such different ways. In comparing a robot to a human, we are simply not comparing like with like.
