Tackling the Global Stroke Crisis

Almost 17million people across the world have a stroke each year - up 68% since 1990. That's a staggering one stroke every two seconds. The new findings from the largest-ever study on global stroke incidence and mortality published last week in the Lancet. More people, on average, are having a stroke three to five years younger than they did 20 years ago. The number of working age people having a stroke (aged 20-64) is up by a quarter. And, perhaps most worryingly of all, the global burden of stroke (disability, illness and premature death) is expected to more than double by 2030.

Being A Customer Doesn't Give You the Right to Be a Bully

I have developed the same cynicism as most fully grown adults, yet this is underpinned by a general hatred of all human beings, particularly customers. I still work in customer service as I work my way through my studies, and I have come to learn that my first screaming idiot customer, isn't all that unusual.

What Paxman's Interview With Brand Tells Us About Masculinity, Science and Spirituality

Nick Clements | Posted 30.12.2013 | UK Lifestyle
Nick Clements

The Paxman and Brand debate has been viewed over 5 million times, and for me, amongst other things, it very succinctly describes the tension between science and spirituality within masculinity. Paxman, like a school yard bully, slowly circles Brand chanting 'prove it, prove it, prove it.' Brand can't prove it. He is just voicing his discontent, happy not to be able to prove it, which perplexes Paxman.

Flying Frankfurts and General Douchebaggery at Kids Parties

There's something wonderful about children's parties. Kids are remarkably social animals and I enjoy watching them interact. I like to try and work out the little cliques that develop and determine which kid is the glue-eating misfit who was only invited because his mother does yoga with the host.

Uganda: Next Paralympic Champions?

I have travelled back to Kampala for the final leg of my trip with Ade Adepitan to investigate what life is like for disabled people in Uganda. I was very excited about our main event - we were due to meet Uganda's own wheelchair paralympic hopefuls. I was really interested to hear how their training compares to Ade's and to see them in action on the court... It was heartening to hear their hopes for the future. I hope they make the grade. After the UK's own team, I certainly know who I am going to be rooting for.

Being able to think has great advantages as it helps us function and live our lives. But it's not always an un-mitigating blessing. Our thoughts can trap us if we're not careful. If you find yourself thinking too much about the past you can wind up feeling regretful, sad and guilty.

What Jimmy Savile Has Shown Us About the Male Response to Power

It is very easy to be righteously disgusted by his behaviour, and feel ashamed that we didn't take notice of his victims, however, the death of Jimmy Saville two years ago and the revelations which followed, still leave many unanswered questions about our relationship to fame, and particularly how men react to such power.
