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.
The organisation 'Medics Under Fire' has documented the killing of 615 medical workers since the beginning of the conflict. 97% of them died as a result of Syrian Government attacks, which evinces that this is not a two-side problem.
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 ...
No-one would invent the BBC today. But thank God our predecessors did. The BBC is one of this country's greatest institutions: it developed organically, almost accidentally, but it's become a central part of the public realm without being part of the state.
We will of course never know whether the presence of experienced Merseyside football spotters would have resulted in those officers being able to alert the match commander of potential impending disaster
On Monday night, 294 MPs voted against the Dubs Amendment to the Immigration bill, tabled in the House of Lords, which would have seen the UK accept 3,000 unaccompanied child refugees from Europe. Two hundred and ninety-four. That's the same number of unaccompanied minors Help Refugees found in the Calais 'Jungle' in their latest census.
The Destitution Report is an important step towards understanding the severe impact of poverty in the UK, but we could do much more to identify the scale of the problem and to progress in tackling it.
My Nanna was very worried for her sons, and it took an awfully long time to find out if they were okay (they had tried to phone as soon as possible, but every phonebox from Sheffield to Manchester had a queue). Eventually, word came through that they were, having been in the fateful Leppings Lane end where the crush happened.
