Jo Cox's death on Thursday, along with the tragic mass shooting in Orlando, has been a wakeup call for all of us, in a world where its becoming increasingly apparent that violence is the accepted answer to someone who doesn't agree with you or isn't like you. When did this way of dealing with difference become the norm?
In Britain, it's a mixed story of trust in media. The Edelman Trust Barometer - an annual survey of how much we believe the major institutions which govern our lives will "do the right thing"- suggests a large number of us simply don't.
According to recent results published by TripAdvisor, London is the top-ranked city destination in the world. The 2016 Travellers' Choice Award was ba...
So today when Parliament debates whether Britain should keep its recent commitment to devote 7 pence in every £10 of our national wealth to aid, we will be confidently declaring, alongside politicians from all sides of the House, that we are #ProudOfAid.
Maybe I should retreat to my journalist bubble but feeling is better than ignoring. Remembering the one and praying for them is better than hiding behind my keyboard. I think that Kleenex will make a lot of money out of me though.
Courtney Cox and David Beckham have recently drawn attention to those sleeping rough (or at least to their part in drawing our attention to them). And rightly too. There were 1,768 people sleeping rough in England in autumn 2010. This more than doubled to 3,569 in 2015.

Three people died in as many days on Mount Everest this weekend. One was a vegan. Maria Strydom wanted to "prove that vegans can do anything and more" by climbing seven summits in seven continents. How foolish of her.
What I do care about is that every woman recognises her beauty, regardless of anything. And however she puts herself together she does it for herself, and herself alone. Not because her partner wants it, not because her boss expects it and not because the media dictates it.
There is a pill that can prevent HIV. I'm not referring to something that could potentially change the lives of future generations, one day, after decades of further research. This 'miracle drug' is real, it's ready now, and it is called Pre Exposure Prophylaxis, or PrEP.
In Monday's opinion piece for The Telegraph, one self-assured pundit claimed that 'perhaps Brighton should hold its own referendum, on independence fr...
A big problem with this is that, in the future, our surgeons will not be given the opportunity to practice and develop the skills required for normal vaginal delivery, with a thorough understanding of how to maneuver the baby in the best way possible.
My mother recently wrote an article in the Daily Mail addressing how she raised me and my 15 year old sister to be respectable and kind towards other women and wear whatever clothes we feel comfortable in. The article got a lot of mixed attention...
The Tories have crossed the line in their latest move to impose cuts on the BBC... Ministers are planning to axe several "soft" elements of the broadcaster's output, including travel advice and 'magazine' style features. But the most shocking casualty will be the removal of most of its cooking recipes, which range from a humble burger to a painfully fashionable kale and quinoa sauté.
This is what Wilson Ayala Romero tells me when I ask him about his work: "My colleague had a fall at work; she split her head open, hurt her arm and ...
