The new figures show more than twice as many people in the UK have dementia before the age of 65 than was thought. It's estimated 42,000 people have young onset dementia (also called early onset dementia) - including thousands of cases among those in their 40s, and more than 700 cases among those in their 30s.
His jail sentence, his crime, his life, his guilt. The language of the perpetrator is everywhere, yet the language of the victim is nowhere to be found. 439 words and Reeva isn't named once, referred to singularly at the beginning with poetic abandon: 'He killed his girlfriend.'
Efua was a truly inspirational woman, and it was a great honour to work with her. We will continue to remember her, in our work to achieve her vision to end FGM in a generation. Surely there can be no greater tribute to her than this - that we work tirelessly to protect future generations of the girls she cared so deeply about.
I am a North Korean defector who escaped the hardship of the region in 2007. Korea has remained in the media spotlight in recent weeks due to the unprecedented disappearance, and reappearance, of leader Kim Jong-un. Countless people have spoken about the missing dictator, but very little attention is being focused on the invisible victims of the Kim regime...
We are left with the responsibility to carry the task through, but Efua has paved the way. Efua was loved like few people I've known and she has changed the lives of more girls than would ever come to know her. She will be greatly missed and the thoughts of all of us are with her family.
This horrific torture still continues and many mainstream high street and designer fashion houses continue to source angora from farms that pluck and shear live rabbits whilst they are tied down, screaming and bleeding.
Our labour is worth just the same as anyone else's. Don't let society carve into to stone what we know to be wrong by allowing this opinion to go unchallenged...
Yes the lights are green, but environmental concerns should not be the only ones on our mind if we head off in search of the Northern Lights this winter. Of course, limiting our impact on the fragile Arctic landscape is important, but to truly connect with these places we need to understand, respect and help preserve the cultural traditions and the people which have shaped them.
When someone takes their own life, whether it be a friend, a family member, a total stranger, or a celebrity, we wish we could have known, that we could have helped find a solution to their problems somehow. Every time I heard the announcement at the railway station, that another life's light had been put out, I desperately wished I could have been at that person's front door...
As for Freud, at best, carelessness, and a poor understanding of his department and the people that it serves may prove less a slip and more a great fall; Labour are set to table a Commons motion of no confidence in him to be voted on later this month.
There are plenty of wildlife experiences that might draw you to South East Asia, with its brilliant diversity of tropical species and being home to some of the world's most iconic species. Unfortunately there are many practices for tourists that can have a negative effect on the wellbeing of these animals, such as increasing the demand for species that are often endangered in the wild to be poached for shows and street spectacles.
According to Breast Cancer UK 331,000 people a year were diagnosed with cancer in 2011 in the UK only, that's around 910 people every day, or 38 people every hour. It's so common now that unfortunately 30% of us will experience cancer at some point in our life.
How come we don't know when to give up and when to keep going? What price are we willing to pay for life? Would we do whatever it takes to prolong it? Should we be allowed to determine when to stop treatment, when we or a relative become seriously ill?
Arms sales are not apolitical acts. On one hand, they bolster the buyers by giving them a British endorsement as a fig-leaf of respectability, but they also buy the UK government's political support and compliance. As the crackdown continues to escalate it is becoming increasingly clear that decisions being made in support of arms sales are having serious consequences for the victims of state repression.
While 500million smallholder farmers work to overcome the odds, a handful of global companies control the transport and distribution of our food supply. Rampant consolidation of food companies has created an 'hourglass economy' with millions of farmers selling to a handful of companies - who in turn sell to millions of consumers.
From prominent personalities of stage and screen, and to those who hold significant power and authority in industry. To me, my step father held this same air of authority, and like a good little girl, I never disclosed his actions to anyone, for many years. I loved him like daughters love their fathers; I was protective of him, and did not want to see any harm come by him.
