Paul's worked in a men's clothing wholesalers, but his real passion was cycling and he hoped to be a professional racing cyclist. When he was 17, he had an accident that put an end to this ambition.

The addition of a newsroom culture - in whatever forms that takes, whether through a content agency or hiring journalists - brings many of the skills that modern-day marketers need into the organisation. It's something President Cheese and Huge no doubt wish they had had. Tweet production would have been rapid, and they'd have had the nous to realise the story, as written, made them look idiotic.
This multiplicity of possibilities requires a modern version of a rather more ancient magic: the splitting of the self to transcend the grim mundanity of having to 'be' in a particular place at any one time.

Standing in the shade of olive trees on a hill in north-west Jordan, the peaceful spring afternoon was suddenly shattered. From across the valley came the heavy thud of shelling from Syria's border villages.
You Did Not Eat That made the news this week and was dubbed "hilarious" and "mad genius" by a host of women's websites. But I'm calling bullshit on this skinny-shaming tripe because it's not funny, it's not okay and I'm sick to death of women being called out for what they have or have not eaten.
