Each week John* and his four colleagues meet with their manager to discuss workloads, responsibilities, and to decide exactly who does what task. This approach seeks to blend each individual's strengths and weaknesses across the whole team.
People often say to me 'I am living!' Yes, we are all breathing, waking up in the morning and going to work and doing our best to get by. Yet, I wonder how many of us are merely existing. There is a vast difference between the two. Whilst this is something I have often pondered on (especially since the sudden passing of my mother), this film really brought it home to me.
I still think of myself as a newcomer to retailing, but I've learned more about food in two years at Tesco than I've done in many years. It's been a journey which has left me mixed emotions. Too often, I've seen examples across the supply chain of good, edible food being thrown away. We have to fix this - working together, across the food industry, in partnership.
I don't think that we will ever see an end to horse racing, as it is deeply embedded in British Culture, however we can certainly bring attention to improvements which so desperately need to be made. By wearing this hat, I am hoping to open up a calm and civilised discussion with MPs and those in the horse race industry on how we can move forward.
I welcome today's Westminster Hall debate. It is important that we have an open discussion about UK aid. I am proud of the many positive things which aid has delivered but I am determined that we provide both accountability and value for money.
If this government were to use its power to ban such unjust practices and address inequality at its core, it would boost developing nations' public finances, which could be spent by their governments on their own sustainable development. But until that day, the Labour Party stands solidly behind maintaining 0.7%.
Something was wrong when the doctor led me into the children's room at Guija Hospital in Gaza Province, southern Mozambique. What struck me was the stillness. From my previous job as a primary school teacher, the one thing I know is a room of children is never usually this quiet.
When MPs debate the UK's aid target today, I hope we are presented with a full picture of the pros and cons of aid spending. I'm proud that Britain hasn't turned its back on the world's poorest - the fact that the rest of the world has not yet followed suit is a reason to carry on, not retrace our steps. We can and must continue to do better, but there should be no doubt that British aid is transforming the lives of millions of the most vulnerable people on the planet.
I met Sebenele, a bright 14 year-old boy with a big smile, this week during a visit to Swaziland to see how my fund is helping UNICEF to support and protect children living with HIV. Swaziland has the highest rate of HIV infection in the world. Twenty-four per cent of children here have lost one or both parents to AIDS and many are themselves now living with HIV. I thought about my own children and how in many ways the things Sebenele enjoys are the same things they do. Yet he told me how he is struggling to continue to take his antiretroviral medicine, which is vital to ensure he stays healthy, because he can't keep the pills down without any food.
Carers do an invaluable job - these all too often unsung heroes are the back-bone of care in our communities and play an indispensable role in supporting the needs of loved ones, often at enormous cost to their own health and well-being.
Solutions begin and end with women. Everywhere in the Arab World women are the main caregivers; the first shield against radicalisation. As politicians and negotiators, we have seen them prove, time and time again, that they are more likely to compromise and reconcile in order to achieve peace.
We can individually take responsibility for our own actions, but to make big changes decisions need to be taken on a national, continental and even global scale. If the big coffee companies are going to make billions out of our legal addiction, they need to be forced to clean up the mess that's left afterwards.
What happens when he's a man and doesn't pass as "cute" anymore? He is still our beautiful baby regardless, but the world can be a cruel place. I just want to protect him from it forever.
. I have always felt that good theatre shows you a life you might never know while holding a mirror to your own experience. I want to leave a product...
Later this week, and elsewhere in France, EURO 2016 will kick off. One thing we know for certain is that wherever you are from in the world, there is a fair chance you'll like football. With this in mind and to mark the start of the tournament, my wife Jill and I will dedicate our weekend to bringing some practical support and hopefully a bit of fun to those young refugees.
Sitting on a park bench in the center of Erbil, northern Iraq with two local Kurdish men, I'm deep in conversation about violence against women. My long-standing work on women's rights with my charity Project Monma has brought me to northern Iraq twice now.
