There's a classic song by the band Green Day called 'Warning' from the album of the same name, released in 2000, where agile and energetic front man B...
The term 'Drunkorexia' is relatively new, but the condition is not. Drunkorexia is a combination of alcoholism and anorexia or bulimia. Usually, a person suffering from drunkorexia will deprive himself or herself of food during the day, in an attempt to keep calories under control when he or she goes drinking later.
When you hear the words 'Wimbledon Final', it's hard not to relive the day last July when Andy Murray became the first British man to win the coveted trophy in 77 years. The nation rejoiced in patriotism that our first real contender had finally put us out of our misery of mediocrity.
It has been proven that people have different learning styles and not everyone works well under pressure. If a mark was devised from a student's overall progress throughout the year, taking class participation and coursework into consideration, surely this would be a fairer judge of their academic ability...
With candidates making promises to have a pay-as-you-go gym, a free annual music event or free printer credits, it seems a shame that the elections still fail to capture the attention of the majority of the student population. Students should try to engage more with Guild politics to get the most out of their university experience and ensure that they are fully represented by the best possible candidate.
What about the less overt misogyny of a culture which judges women on their body first, their face second, their hair third, and their intellect last? It's time we stop justifying pageant contents in the context of them being a way to reach our higher goals. Male medical students wouldn't pose in a swimsuit as a way to achieve great things, so why should female ones.
Thanks to the fond memories of the beautiful country that continue to excite me & the jet lag, I came up with this list of 20 bullet points at around 3:00 a.m.! Enjoy:)
Young people need to at least be able to have a rudimentary understanding of how the commercial world works and we as a society need to find ways to measure and nurture this new entrepreneurial spirit.
What I want to question is though, why the government has just started wanting to help mental health in schools? They have had years to do so, even by providing teachers better training with Mental Health awareness and understanding or making Mental Health a compulsory unit in Science or ECM, yet they have failed to do anything until recently...
Students find the money for university from a number of different sources. The 'bank of Mum and Dad' is still the most popular way of financing higher education, along with loans and grants, but 11% of undergraduates rely on credit cards and a worrying 2% on payday loans. This would imply over 250,000 students and 46,000 students in the UK respectively.
The 2014 World Cup is now officially upon us after what seems like a countdown that has lasted forever, thank you BBC Sport. Anyhoo, looking past all the various controversies surrounding this tournament in Brazil and FIFA in general (these are arguments that will continue for a long time yet) I've decided to jump on the bandwagon and make my own predictions about the outcome of the tournament, mainly because I'm feeling left out.
Whenever I arrive at a bar or nightclub and I see security, I always feel like I have ran a mile in the rain with a rucksack full of books to make a train, only to be told that when I sit down breathless and drowning in my own sweat that there are leaves on the track. I think it can be established that there are three types of nightclub bouncers...
A couple of weeks ago, Frank Field MP wrote an open letter to David Miliband about taking a harder (might I say UKIP) line on immigration. I wasn't impressed and wrote a reply - and Mr.Field subsequently replied to me. Below is my response to him.
If there are lies, damned lies and statistics then the recently announced fact that only 26% of postgraduate places in UK universities are held by UK students can be spun as both a failure and a success.
Jet setting this summer? Taking a gap year? Before you skip to the travel agents or log on to EasyJet, take a few moments and read this to make sure you've fully thought your travel plans through.
Why is it, that in our community, we feel that being single is a punishment, undesirable; and basically means you're a hideous leper? This is what I tell my mother constantly, as more than once a week she asks if I am seeing someone.
