We matched developers and designers with people who understood the problems they were trying to solve - public servants, experts and academics, ordinary people who'd experienced first hand services they wanted to improve. We fed them lasagne and supplied them with post-it notes and wifi. Quite a few of them didn't sleep.
Crossing a metal barrier into an odd small cage for women while men glare over the divide felt like I and the other women were communicating 'I feel vulnerable around men', emphasising the power of the men outside the zone.
A Beautiful and captivating new exhibition at The British Library focuses on ten key performances that made Shakespeare the cultural icon he is today. Shakespeare in Ten Acts, looks at how Shakespeare became 'the Bard' by focusing on ten key performances.
Six months ago, I lost my job. Sitting in an office with the CEO and Founder of the company I'd been working for, I heard the words no graduate wants to hear: "We're sorry, but we can't keep you on".
A week that seemed to start off so well for Sadiq Khan, has already fallen apart and it's only Wednesday. Given his swift u-turn on this pledge and others he made during his election campaign, one is left wondering what else the new mayor will fail to deliver for Londoners.
Forget the cinema days of dusty fold-away red chairs, flat pepsi, stale popcorn and stained carpets, for there are some far more exciting cinema experiences to be had that are a world away from your local Odeon. No longer does the experience start and end from the trailers to the credits, but from the moment you first walk through the venue doors.
I'm going to lay my cards on the table from the get-go: I am a dyed-in-the-wool pacifist. My views on the military are entirely at odds with the domin...
Retinoids are a firm favourite with both dermatologists and beauty editors alike. There are a large number available, all marketed for their anti-aging properties, but the truth is they are not all the same in their potency or effects. So how do you know which one to buy? Are the prescription strength ones better than the ones you can buy over the counter?
Praise be for ila's new range of products. After feeling the effects of a long haul flight, I was more than happy to offer up my face in order to road-test the Brit brand's Gold Cellular Age-Restore Collection. The range of anti-ageing skincare has recently launched at Harrods and this is where I headed to give it a try.
I wouldn't like to assume what the Night Tube is going to be like but after once speaking to the ticket inspector on the high speed service from St Pancras International to Strood, I understand that the later the service, the more unpleasant the experience. He nick named that service the Vomit Comet, which I think dangerously glamourises it.
The new designs see four subjects that might be seen as twee, transformed into a much more contemporary reincarnation - the same vision as five years ago. This time I opened up the brief to both country and city life, choosing two icons from each - a bird, deer, red telephone box and black cab.
There are currently 7.6million people around the world playing rugby and an HSBC Future of Rugby Report predicts that with rugby sevens as the spark, it will ignite significant growth that will double this number to 15million over the next ten years.
A year after the launch, we have processed over £2 million gross transactions through Collins Pay and we are expecting over 100% year on year growth. By focusing on a space where transactions were already happening in vast quantities, but analysing how it could be done better for our clients and their customers whilst integrating this directly into their current booking flows, Collins Pay stands alone in this space.
Why TB is included in the AMR review is clear: over the last few decades TB has been quietly transforming itself into new strains of drug resistant TB (DR-TB). DR-TB causes an astounding 500 deaths a day and can't be cured with normal TB drugs.
London is in the midst of nothing short of a health crisis. Over 2,000 schools are within 400 metres of roads carrying more than 10,000 people per day - we are quite literally poisoning our children. The cost to the NHS is likely to run into the hundreds of millions, if not billions. And yet all the time, the number of cars on London's roads continues to climb. Only a radical solution of the kind set out by the Mayor on Friday will ensure London is cleaner, healthier and safer in the years to come.
Through her own struggles, Yvonne has one clear message about success for those going through mental health issues: "You can have a life, second to none. It can be as simple a thing as having a physical condition that you manage on a daily basis. You might have mental health issues, but it's not the final death knell that it once was. It's just a door into another type of future, and it could be a future more enhanced than your past."
