He welcomes the homeless for lunch, shows infinite patience to a child running around while delivering a keynote speech and responds personally to people who contact him. Leadership is about serving others faithfully.

Tackling the Global Stroke Crisis

Jon Barrick

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.

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.
