The Telegraph's article highlights the similarities between the research industry and the mainstream press - and shows that they can work well together, clearly suggesting that the two disciplines can collaborate in the future for joint betterment...
The mother vs the expert has become a common binary in lifestyle media aimed at women. The mother is almost invariably presented as about two seconds away from being sectioned, and the expert is mostly always a white man with (we assume) a medical degree.
I have won and lost jobs on the back of my (occasional) inability to be an obsequious yes-man. I won a job in a powerful publishing empire because I dared to speak my mind in a room of conformity, at precisely the moment the boss was changing his. The next day, my honesty was rewarded with a full-time contract.
As a daughter of immigrant parents who came to the UK for postgraduate studies at university, I can safely say that the way immigrants are perceived (particularly exacerbated by right-wing media outlets) is frankly absurd and borderline ludicrous.
It's not an oversight or an accident that the PCC fails to spell out to the public which newspapers attract the most complaints and which papers breach the code most often. Look at this table of complaints about UK national daily and Sunday newspapers for 2013, compiled by Hacked Off from the PCC Monthly Complaint Summaries, and you will soon get an idea of who benefits if the public doesn't see these figures...
The End, it seems, is nigh. "It's strange in rock culture just now," Primal Scream's Bobby Gillespie told BBC4's Review Show in December. "It's kinda dead, I think. It's over." The Cult's Ian Astbury, meanwhile, has decided that the album has also reached the end of the line.
Russian independent broadcaster TV Dozhd, meaning TV Rain, is under fire after publishing a poll asking whether Leningrad- now St Petersburg- should have been allowed to fall into Nazi hands.
Now I love public relations professionals but one of the key skills needed in this field is learning how to use that all important bcc box. Journalists, bloggers and anyone else who receive press releases know that they're not special. We know that PR's aren't sat in their fancy offices individually sending us press releases with love. But we don't need to KNOW that the emails are going out en masse.
Whilst I agree with the BBC for banning children's TV presenters from looking too sexy on air with their clothes, I disagree with them stopping red lipstick being worn on children's programmes. Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz had red lips and so does Snow White. Does that make them provocative?
With the flurry of the festive season over, we're gearing up for another year of runway shows, celebrity collaborations and exclusive exhibitions that looks set to be even bigger than the last. We round up the fashion dates for your diary this year.
Apart from the news plurality issue, a new takeover bid would raise other issues.... A wholly owned Sky will give Murdoch more leverage for cross-promotion across his empire, thereby entrenching his competitive advantage and further reducing the number of alternative voices.
The collapse of Page 3 would be the catalyst for feminist campaigns and would be a major step in the abolishment of male privilege. It would massively strengthen the fourth wave revolution and see more women in parliament, at the heads of boardroom tables and at the forefront of political and economic committees, rather than on the tired and outdated pages of tabloid papers.
We were surprised and extremely disappointed to see that Channel 4 News took the decision to cover up the image of Mohammed when showing the Jesus & Mo cartoon, and we are thus keen to elicit the rationale behind that particular editorial decision.
This Monday was worse than usual. Before I even took a first sip of my obligatory morning coffee, my phone pinged to tell me an email had arrived. It was from my solicitor, telling me that they had received the response from UK Visa and Immigration to say my review has been rejected on the same grounds as they originally refused it. They have now also issued me my removal orders.
Data has always been important in communications, but it has never been more critical than it is now. In today's world, newspapers are facing increasing pressure to cut costs and produce more news in less time.
At the risk of stating the very obvious it is clear from the title of the documentary series 'Benefits Street' that the aim of the film makers was to identify those featured on the show primarily as benefit claimants.
