Regeneration should be first and foremost about the residents of the community who belong there; otherwise we really should ask this question in the coming mayoral election: who are these gentrification projects really for?
What holds females back? Is it that women love their current tech jobs so much they don't want to move through the corporate ranks - or even become CEO? Are they missing opportunities? Or not asking for promotion?
For now though, we can only hope that the government will make the right choice for British business and the economy in general, by taking a proper look at airport expansion in the South East.
There's a clock in my father's kitchen. It's on the wall, right above the phone and the pad of paper my father insists on keeping next to the phone, a...
Sure, Millennials have it a lot harder when it comes to making their job count. We will probably have worked 100 jobs by the age of 60, all while still renting a house in the middle of nowhere and commuting to work for hours. But we will also be able to change our job titles to something outlandish and, most importantly, shape our company and its products rather than letting them shape us.

Refugees are and should be welcome in the UK and other EU countries. They deserve better than this frankly appalling treatment. They're not trying to 'scrounge' from us. They're not just a 'bunch of migrants', like David Cameron said last week. They're people. It's time that they're given the help that they so desperately need.
It's this kind of old-fashioned tradition that is holding London back from truly being the greatest city on earth. Unless London begins to accept Uber as part of everyday life and embrace it instead of fighting against it, the city is going to become something of a laughing stock on the global stage.
Whether you're a catholic or looking to test your willpower, February 10th marks the beginning of Lent, forty days in which some people decide to give up on meat. So if you're trying to get your fix of beef briskets, pork ribs and roast chicken, here are the best meat feasts in London.
When my fifth London Anniversary was approaching last Autumn, I inevitably started to think about where exactly I was, how did I reach there and what did I want to do next... After all, 5 years is a big milestone.
PCSOs should be given fire safety and first-response medical training to act as an additional front line for all three of London's emergency services. Additional training could enable London's 1,667 community officers to perform CPR or other medical treatment on a patient when they are first on scene.
I'm not striking for my own benefit, I don't want rent for free and UCL needs to know that we aren't naïve students who can be swept under the carpet. In short, I have friends who can't get by with the money they have and working even a single job is sometimes unfeasible.
After a morning of procrastination, I spent the afternoon working in Central London with similar levels of productivity. The tube was busy when I returned home, as apparently other people had been working there too (I don't get out much).
It's a veritable melting pot of trends, music and culture. The area has produced a diverse array of talent who are widely celebrated today; from esteemed writer (Edgar Allen Poe), to top businessmen (Alan Sugar) and even man-of-the-moment Idris Elba. Local institutions like the 115 year old Hackney Empire has helped provide platforms for this multicultural talent over the years, and the Industrial and Jungle electronic music genres even originated from the area.
I believe the people who know first-hand the extent of the problem - the private renters themselves - are the best people to start doing it, and that's why I want to help them to help themselves. Joining forces always makes people stronger, and renters need no longer be the soft touch their landlords take them for.
It's not like London's flaws haven't always been there, it's just I hadn't noticed them during the honeymoon phase. But that doesn't mean the end for me and the Big Smoke - finding and accepting the UK's vibrant capital as one big contradiction full of stark contrasts and daily personal tests, makes it easier to manage my love-hate relationship.
