The So So Glos are a band that inspires a wealth of music writing clichés. They're a 'band of the people', they are 'DIY heroes', they 'mean it, man'. The thing about these four guys from Brooklyn is they genuinely are all those things.

Tossing you up to stomach-churning heights, it's as quick to turn around and peg you in your place just when you feel you've got it, that you're a part of it , that every lesson life has taught you up to this point has merely been a means for preparing you for the daily jostle.

Forget Goodbye to All That; It's Hello New York

Jumping on the Airtrain to bring me to Howard Beach and the subway line, I ride the A train all the way to 59th and Columbus Circle. Stepping into the frenzied mid-town street, half blinded by the reflecting blaze of the afternoon sun on a glassy skyscraper I think if only happiness such as this could be bottled and bought. Out here, I sing, a fish can breathe.

The good news is that it shows no signs of slowing down - quite the opposite in fact.

Climate Change Sceptics Are as Stupid as Creationists

Their 'evidence' that evolution didn't happen is based on a book of fiction, and consists of a belief that God planted dinosaur bones in the earth in order to test our faith. Like the climate change deniers, they also have a small amount of professors, scientists and experts who all claim that their beliefs are credible.

Emma's set out the direction we need to head in, but in order to genuinely permeate our society's consciousness on the gender issue for good, we need to re-tune our media's frame of reference.

Tomorrow's UN climate summit in New York brings together policymakers from around the globe to facilitate reaching agreement on an effective climate deal in 2015. Given the frequent warnings from international scientists about the dangers of global warming and the role of human activity as well as months marked by several destructive extreme weather events, it seems important to ask just what will it take for countries to reach agreement on a climate treaty.

It had been a pretty average day. Tying up the laces of my trainer, ready for an evening run I received an email on my phone. At around 8PM I assumed it was probably another pointless message from some brand I had unwittingly subscribed to, and as my finger poised to sweep it into the virtual rubbish bin; I saw the title "NYU Admissions Decision".

To be honest, I never even really thought about my shirts. It's a shirt, it serves a purpose, which is to not show up at the office naked... If I liked the color and it fit, consider it bought... Of course it had to be comfortable too. But a pocket? Really?
