The Boomers don't always seem to understand that over the last few years there's been a significant shift away from the belief that the State will be with us all from cradle-to-grave and that now there's a visceral, unspoken understanding among a proportion of their children, that things won't be so easy for them.
If you've ever got to that point with social media where you feel like its hold over your life might be getting a little bit out of control then fear not as it would seem that you're not the only one.
Today, our technological devices are connecting hearts, breaking them and creating an abundance of ways for us to meet new people and experience love online. The transition that we're witnessing is attracting a new and younger generation of online daters.
The Sun newspaper showed no signs of changing its relentless ignorance this week as it stormed straight into the spotlight just a few days before Worl...
I recently came across a very interesting report by Deloitte titled "Exploring Strategic Risk" that summarised findings from interviews with 300 execu...
As if there were not enough ways for professional footballers to land themselves in hot water, Twitter was born. A social networking website where any person can connect with millions of other people has now meant that footballers are putting themselves in the spotlight by airing their views online.
Like me, I'm sure you've heard horrifying passenger stories about Ryanair and after a while we become untouched by these stories, most probably because they're told so often. But what really surprised me recently was the way that Ryanair joined Twitter...
