Dying Matters Awareness Week aims to get people talking about death and bereavement because, unfortunately, death is a part of life. In my experience, talking about death really does make bereavement easier - that includes posting statuses about loved-ones you've lost on Facebook.
Fashion was always meant to be accessible - it was just the logistics that got in the way... Digital has changed everything. Digital fashion is often touted as a victory for convenience - discover, browse and shop wherever you want, whenever you want. But the real winner is choice and access.
In the modern world, technology never stops evolving and the rate of change seems to be increasing. Ten years ago YouTube was in its infancy, yet now your favourite films and TV shows can be streamed at the click of a button.
I blame advertising. That dusty, old broken record busting out the greatest hits of Flat Tummy and Big Boobs. Advertising - insidious and greedy, feasting and dribbling over peoples insecurities - holds our thoughts and feelings hostage.
As soon as you have purchased a new bike, record the frame number, bike details and take photos - especially of unique parts/features - the police will ask for this if you are a victim of cycle theft. There are a number of police approved and monitored registers, such as Immobilise.com who also offer bike tagging technology.
My dad passed away last night, the post in my newsfeed said. I stopped and looked it over. Should I comment? Was that appropriate? Part of me was begi...
It's captivating, hypnotising, and down right annoying, but we're all totally addicted to the unmistakable lure of social media...are we not? It's a funny thing, this social media lark.
I was asked recently why I choose to put my life on the internet and allow everyone to know my business. I had a good think and have realised there isn't one simple answer, and it completely depends on the topic.
We need to be careful with employing the language of addiction. It is not only easy to do, but is alluring as well. However, real addiction to social media, though possible, is generally misapplied or hyperbole
There is a direct link between capturing time and expenses in a mobile device and profitability. The ability to capture hours in an app drives greater accuracy and more billable hours, ensuring fewer write-offs. The result? A faster work-to-cash process and considerable bottom line savings.
The UK has a well-developed model to achieve 'good', however motivating Millennials to become great will be hard without change. We have 46 Olympic sports but to get to 60 Gold medals, most incremental medals will come from 'outside the model' (such as new sports like Snowboarding). How refreshing to witness a UK sports think tank engaging with how to achieve that. It made me proud to be British.
Even if Tess IS unhealthy (I don't know her, I can't comment on her health) does that mean that she should be less employable as a model? When did we start judging people's right to employment based on the level of their health?
One of the issues now confronting students, is that our political engagement with friends in person, and on social media, has obscured the fact that many of us have not been politically active on the streets. I am certainly guilty of this myself.
As the result of the General Election started to emerge, my social media news feeds were inundated with posts, slamming the electorate for the party t...
The election result was a big shock: no one predicted the Conservatives would win an outright majority and no one forecast the SNP tsunami. It has shown us that the old rules no long apply. What once was does not have to be. Despite the perceived political differences, if towns and cities across the UK grasp that, the future doesn't have to be blue.
