The chances of expanding the league looks like it won't happen, at least for a long time. For a number purists out there the league is set perfectly of eight divisions of four in two conferences. But what if we did have an expansion? How would it work? How many teams would be needed to make it work? What cities would be awarded a franchise?
I love visiting Paris...the food, the history, the arrogance, everything that tells me I'm a tourist. My sister is a hard core Francophile. She ran away to live the dream there, ended up fluent, and a professor at La Sorbonne.
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.
Christmas is without a doubt my favourite time of year. I love the Christmas lights and the spectacular window displays. Let's face it; it is the one time a year when we have an excuse to be a kid again!
It happens once a year, towards the end of November and has reared it's ugly head again. Black Friday depicts society in a vulnerable and selfish state. Yet we are all victims of it's success by flocking to the sales, hoping to pick up a bargain and will do anything to scoop the best deal by acquiring a state of the art plasma TV, fridge or pair of headphones.
Looking back on the last six months, the journey I have embarked on, skills I have learnt and situations I have experienced, it has all been something that I could only have dreamt of previously...
I was recently shortlisted in the 'best blogger' category at the UK Dating Awards. Let me start by saying I did not win. I did not even get a 'special mention'. My writing received no recognition whatsoever. In terms of debauchery and self-ridicule, however, I swept the board.
By the end of Mac DeMarco's largest ever London show - at Kentish Town's sold-out, 2,350-capacity venue, The Forum - he is topless, only wearing one shoe, and wildly playing a rendition of Metallica's Enter Sandman, to an ecstatic crowd (though, there were a few bewildered audience members)...
Charities like CAIA were able fostering and strengthening communal culture and identity, in addition to providing much needed assistance. However, a much wider debate about how charities are funded is needed, otherwise charities like CAIA will face an uncertain future.
hanksgiving as a non-nation based national holiday celebration liberates us too from idealising mom's culinary supremacy over every root vegetable under the earth's crust. It seems that the more time-consuming the preparations, the greater the expectation that everyone will appreciate them, as moments of tenderness bristle with pique.
The Gospel According to the Other Mary, being the other Mary the composer's mother and other social activist women, composed by John Adams and curre...
Earlier this year I made the decision to quit my job, and take a few months out to see the world. I love London, but a combination of things had made me exhausted with my life in the big city. I was ready to leave my comfort zone and go on some adventures!
After one year of living in Los Angeles, here I was - back visiting London for 2 weeks. Home. I was noticing things I'd never noticed before. No, not just noticing, but in their comforting familiarity I found them to be exquisite.
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?
I have now got round nearly half the CLPs in London and spoken in all at around 70 meetings. It is evenings like this that show there is a thirst for debate and a desire to see people who are not career politicians enter the fray. And it is evenings like this which make all the hard work worthwhile..
For two of the most visceral, invigorating, and progressive bands in the country - both based in the supposed creative capital that is east London - to be taking inspiration from a movement started a century ago, is perhaps a little jarring.
