I've been travelling for almost two months and have spent the last week exploring the beautiful country of Guatemala in Central America. I didn't know what to expect. I'd heard it was a dangerous country, and I would need to have my wits about me to stay safe. It's also a poor country.
"You actually say 'maths' instead of 'math'?" Colour. *Color. "So... I hope you don't mind if I ask you a personal question. Did you live in the U.K...
Hard work should be rewarded with fair pay. While a debate may be rumbling on between government and UK businesses about what constitutes fair pay when it comes to setting the bar for the minimum wage, there is still much that we can do as individual companies to encourage and nurture young talent...

If you fancy exploring the British Isles there are plenty of ways you can do it without having to spend the budget of a small army. The most conventional would be to stay in hotels or bed and breakfasts, but that's a bit dull really, isn't it?
The collaborations between the street and the high-end represent a change in the business of fashion. Amelia Groom in her essay on Japan's contemporary street fashion culture observes that 'change in fashion has often been explained as a 'trickle-down' effect of class imitation followed by class aversion.'
There are plenty of wildlife experiences that might draw you to South East Asia, with its brilliant diversity of tropical species and being home to some of the world's most iconic species. Unfortunately there are many practices for tourists that can have a negative effect on the wellbeing of these animals, such as increasing the demand for species that are often endangered in the wild to be poached for shows and street spectacles.
There's a lot more to this journey than just what you put in your mouth, and understanding that your lifestyle, mental state and external stressors also play a huge role in your health is vitally important.
When it comes to Down's syndrome, the most common genetic disorder effecting one in every thousand babies in the UK, we usually hear the stories through the parents' perspective. To them, it is nothing short of a "near-death experience": once it happens, you have a complete different outlook on life, everything you think you know changes and you have to learn how to live and love your new circumstances but in the end, you wouldn't have it any other way...
The self-importance of the Greens is astonishing. In case you've missed the pandemonium, the Greens have threatened legal action over TV broadcasters excluding the party from the planned TV debates during the run-up to next year's general election...
The oldest profession in the world is becoming the job of choice for some students across the country, using a variety of means to advertise themselves. ..
It's not wrong that the disgusting behaviour of the Rugby Club is under scrutiny, but it is wrong that positive action by the university on outreach and funding for students in need of support is apparently not worth mention - especially when it's the sort of information some students need in order to feel able to go into further study.
The first generation to be younger than the internet is also the first generation that truly knows how to harness technology to shape the world the way they want it to be: personal, authentic, thoughtful, open and compassionate. I for one know the future is in safe hands.
When I think back to my summer, I see colours. Blue skies, turquoise seas, lush green, paired with saffron from the glowing sun in Europe and a smudge of brown from Glastonbury mud. I felt like I was beginning to get my own palette of the world and painting a picture of what it had to offer.
The pathetic statement from the Men's Rugby Team shows no engagement with the issues, apologising not for their misogyny and homophobia, but for the decision to publish it.
