What vexes me most is not that these artists are indolently committing crimes against the English language, but that they are wasting a hallowed opportunity. Words add depth, colour and personality to a song. In fact, they become even more powerful when projected onto a musical backdrop, which is why I shudder when lyricists make a conscious decision to rhyme nonsensical syllables.
I take my cap off to Felix Baumgartner. Any person with the courage to rise 128,000 feet (24 miles) into the sky before jumping back down to Earth is a braver man than I will ever be... Hell, despite trying several times... I'm still too scared to ride the London Eye!
Of course, things have changed since 1969, but I do think the principles and essence of what Neil and his team demonstrated should be applied to today's leadership because, as it stands, there's a lot that needs to be learned.
Like a child with a toy, or a London urbanite on a crawl around Shoreditch, Ibiza is equally as obsessed with the new, the next big thing. Each year, fresh objects of desire are created by hopeful businessmen, artists & entrepreneurs.
The blue moon appears on Friday 31 August 2012. "The moon will turn full Friday, the second time since its first full appearance Aug 2 this year.
If the moon landings were awesome, we know we have more computing power now in our mobile phones. If the speed of Apollo 11 was stupendous, in the blink of an eye we can now send pictures around the world of a prince behaving like a plonker.
The UK space industry is a well hidden success story. Like other nations, the UK is targeting space as a high-growth sector. More competition than ever is coming from Brazil, China, India and South Korea, which all have government-subsidised space programmes.
As you walk through the museum's trove of wonders, above the models of rockets and mooncraft you hear orchestral music. It lures you upstairs to a free exhibit called Universe of Sound. Here you can experience classical music like never before.
Stopping smoking in enclosed public spaces, banning cigarette vending machines, hiding tobacco displays in shops and supermarkets; legislation has achieved good things over the last five years. But let's not sing in the rain just yet, we should be striving for an even brighter future.
Nike really are smashing it at the moment. Never mind the Air Wovens, Flyknits or the mad Yeezy II hype, for me it's all about the understated, super tactile designs of NIKECraft, the new collaboration with bricolage sculpture artist Tom Sachs.
28.000 light years away from Earth, towards the center of our Milky Way, an unexpectedly mighty hurricane blows around a tiny black hole. It is the strongest wind ever observed by astronomers and a great surprise because these pushed off particles exceed the speed of 32 million k.p.h
New research suggests that there could be many more wandering planets in our galaxy than there are stars. Planets could be torn from their parent suns and slung into space. Estimates suggest that a galaxy like ours could have billions of them.
I wonder how many other inventors would dare to follow Musk's lead. I guess as space travel is such a small and specialised market, it's a risk which Musk can take, though ultimately extremely lucrative.
Space is one of the only scientific topics that has successfully managed to bridge the gap between science and society. It offers the chance to explore not only our past by searching for extra-terrestrial life, but also the possibility to explore the future, and our capabilities to inhabit other solar system bodies and develop interstellar flight.
