People put the popularity of the unretouched photograph down to different factors but for me personally I think it comes down to one thing and this is simply a comforting reminder that these people are human after all.
In the journalism industry, work experience is a pretty crucial part of getting a job. You need to put together a portfolio, demonstrate you can hold your own in a news room, and prove you have a flair for writing. Qualifications are all well and good, but if you don't have the above, you won't get too far...
Across the globe real sightings of eclipses have been spotted. However, astrologists say that they are not appearing in their usual habitat, due to dietary change and 'solar exhaustion'.
Whether this is what the British public actually wants, or whether this is the product of lazy journalism, I don't know, but with the increasing prevalence of social media acting as a barometer for public impulse I feel like this is a situation that is spiraling out of control.
The situation surrounding Prime Minister David Cameron and the will-he-won't-he with the TV election debates is fairly amusing from the outside, but it provides a huge insight into how politicians actually view the press.
Harmondsworth detainees claim that staff members restricted their access to water on Tuesday, as "punishment" for aiding a Channel 4 investigation into the treatment of asylum seekers.
A listicle is for laughs but a newspaper is for life. We know from our research that people have a much deeper and more trusting relationship with their preferred newspaper brand and that relationship reflects on the advertisers that live within it.
On Sunday, The Huffington Post UK imposed a 24-hour ban. On men. We decided to only use pictures of women on the front page - except for Richard Branson, who we'll get onto later.
You may well be thinking this is censorship. This is prejudice against men. Yes, it is.
Universities keep trying telling us about the importance of cutting costs. We are living in an age of austerity, and a measly £9000 a year in tuition fees per student is apparently not sufficient to maintain the high standards of education these institutions supposedly provide us with. Why is it then, that they find it appropriate to continue to reward their senior staff with extortionately large salaries and performance related bonuses that are dubious at best?
Social care services are crucial to ensuring elderly and disabled people can remain independent, allowing them to stay in their homes and out of hospital. At present, pensioners are being forced to stay in hospital simply because there is no space available for them in care homes, or their own homes are unsuitable.
Engineering educators must utilise young peoples' passion, interest, and reach out, to their dreams by means of diversifying and inspiring engineering to the next generation of engineers and scientists.
Without the license fee, the BBC wouldn't have been able to establish the web services leaving other broadcasters in the shade - my service users would consider that a reason for keeping the fee, not abolishing it, and like any business owner I should put them first, surely?
With counter terrorist units at airports struggling to cope with workloads that have doubled, they also have to attempt to fill the gaps left by the absence of outbound border controls. Too few officers and too many flights make this a near hopeless task.
Why not connect our young people with charities and older generations, meanwhile equipping them with the communication, teamwork and God knows however many other skills they need to get jobs?
Bodybuilding at its highest level is very spiritual and scientific. It requires a Spartan routine that cleanses and detoxifies like nothing else. It is fundamentally stripping away life's inessentials. No manufactured foods. No sugar or sauces, no dessert or snacking on crisps.
