For me the problem is that the Protein World ads didn't demonstrate how adding protein to a healthy diet and exercise regime can be very beneficial. Instead they asked 'Are you beach body ready'? Like it was a perfectly reasonable question to ask any woman.
When I watched British Transport Police's recent Report It to Stop It video, posted on Transport for London's YouTube channel on 13 April, I felt a chilling familiarity with the ordeal portrayed. I identified strongly with the victim's sense of powerlessness as she is being assaulted, unable to speak out or use any force to deter her harasser.
After a full month of not drinking caffeine I've just been and had my first coffee - a tasty, bitter black Americano. Relishing the first, piping-hot sip in slow motion, I sat down to chat to a colleague about existential copywriter stuff and what stuff means and stuff.
London Mayors are often accused of 'taking sides' when it comes to transport. We've had Boris bikes and Livingstone's Congestion Charge, but we've lacked the ideas to streamline transport for all. London needs a policy that benefits cyclists, public transport users and motorists alike...
London is the fastest growing most exciting and dynamic, financially buoyant city in the world, home of the elite - king of financial services - slave to no one. London therefore needs a mayor who will embraces this - not stop it.
Enter the British men of the London Underground. With their sharpened suits and iPhones in hand, they look every bit like a Chinese girl's dream. Part of this attraction is their evocation of wealth and fashion. Then add in the Brit factor.
It's very hard to say what makes a good voice artist; the brilliant thing is that the jobs and the voices are so varied, so one voice is perfect for one job while another voice is perfect for another job.
It has been a week of nightmare commutes. Trains were cancelled due to leaves on the rails, to signal failures and for other unknown reasons that TFL wishes to keep to itself. This is just one of the perks of living and working in London.
My journey into this flourishing two-wheeled world was certainly eye opening. There is a whole cycling scene that I simply had no idea existed. Lets kick off with 'Critical Mass'. Who knew that on the last Friday of every month hundreds of cyclists meet under Waterloo bridge for a "self-organized, non-commercial, celebration, spontaneous gathering
Tweets like this, when viewed as part of a much bigger picture, are a direct threat to the idea that your job should be as safe as possible, that your time spent at work shouldn't make you weep blood and that you should get a fair wage for a fair day's work. TfL aren't just throwing shade at the RMT, they're throwing it at all of us.
I am a pretty speedy walker, if I do say so myself. I would love to be involved in the Olympics' walking race, the funniest looking event was always the one I was going to show some talent for! Working in London has shown me one truth about the city: people are always in your way. Have you come across this problem?
History doesn't just repeat, it gathers its forces at the borders of ignorance and complacency, ready to stage a guerrilla attack...
Taxi fares in London are some of the most expensive in the world (you can quote me on this). And due to the iconic nature of the the black cabs, their drivers are a protected species of some sort.
Are you thinking about moving to London? Well, it's an amazing city but you do have to be ready to make some big changes in your life to adjust to living here. Whether you're a country bumpkin from the UK or travelling to start a new life here from overseas there are a few things you should know, straight up.
For most people the real issue is having to take out their Oyster various times a day instead of just pressing their wallet or purse against the reader. A trivial complaint? Perhaps, but with about 19 million Oyster journeys a day, that adds up to a lot of needless frustration. So why haven't TfL come up with a solution?
How could this be happening? ... I'd lost a lot of weight over the last couple of years and am now a size 14 (the slimmest I've been since I was 14). But that's obviously not good enough if I look pregnant. And not just a bit pregnant - enough to make two sober and presumably rational adults assume that I am pregnant enough to need to sit down on public transport. That's, what, like, seven months?
