The average person today has become profoundly more technical, utilising a variety of devices, technologies and cloud solutions in their daily lives.

On her first day as Prime Minister, standing on the steps of Downing Street, Theresa May said "If you're black, you are treated more harshly by the criminal justice system than if you're white. " She is right - as starkly demonstrated in our prisons.

I guess what I'm trying to say is, don't follow what someone says on the internet, not matter how pretty their pictures are or how knowledgeable they may sound. Find someone who is a registered professional who can show you the correct and safe way to perform work-out routines.

The Case For A Strong Selfless Parliamentary System

J.N. Paquet | Posted 23.02.2017 | UK Politics
J.N. Paquet

The creation of a selfless parliamentary system is a real revolution in itself. It is a new way of doing politics, but it is also and mainly a way to restore the people's trust in politics, and send the populist and nationalist preachers of our time back to the one place they belong: the History books.

It Seems Our Trust In Technology Is Waning

Dr. Mike Lynch

Truth and trust appear to be the same sides of a coin. Technology has not created the fake news problem, nor is it responsible for the erosion of trust in our institutions. I remain optimistic about technology being part of a solution to provide checks and balances on the humans' intent on exploiting its strengths to weaken society.

So, 2016 was the year that Oxford Dictionaries declared "Post-Truth" to be its word of the year. I like the way that "post-truth" sounds and for the last few months, I have read and absorbed the phrase from different articles and commentaries with great interest.

I'm just back from the small, and in truth not particularly charming, Swiss ski resort of Davos. All week it has played host to the Annual meeting of the World Economic Forum, where the global elite, experts, pundits and their entourages gather to discuss the state of the world.

Why The Unreliable Polls Of 2016 Must Awaken New Methods Of Market Research

What is left to say about the US election and Brexit? There seems to be a sense of fatigue now when people discuss these two events - a sense of disbelief and tiredness. However, the implications of both are so huge that we can't shy away from it and have to push ahead; not only to understand what's next, but how it all happened in the first place.

Mandatory Reporting On Patients: Should Doctors Be Policing Our Communities?

Thorough consideration must be given to how all of these risks can be mitigated and the role and judgement of doctors - those who are best placed to support their patients - must form a key part of the conversation.

The 'Internet Of Trust': How IoT Will Help Grow The Sharing Economy

Richard Laughton | Posted 16.11.2016 | UK Tech
Richard Laughton

The rapid growth of the sharing economy means that more and more of us are relying on goods and services that are provided not by companies, but by individuals. And as we increasingly rely on peer-to-peer goods and services in our everyday lives, trust is ever more elevated as one of the biggest factors in our purchase decisions.

Most of us are in agreement that the sharing economy is a good thing, for business and for society. Having trust in the people around us is usually a decent sign that things are going well, and the economic and environmental benefits are clear, too.

Trust Vs Technology: The Rise Of Wearable Tech In The Workplace

Tom McQueen | Posted 15.09.2016 | UK Tech
Tom McQueen

In more general work situations, the question of requiring employees to wear devices to monitor their health and wellness or as a form of surveillance raises more difficult ethical issues. Working at a consultancy with a culture built on trust, I believe the future of work requires employers to give more trust to employees, not less.

Will the Lack of Trust in Charities Make Them Too Afraid to Innovate

Cliff Prior | Posted 30.06.2016 | UK
Cliff Prior

I'm not for a moment saying we shouldn't think and plan and act at our absolute best. But there is little point in our existence unless we can achieve change for people we are here for. The biggest risk of all is failing the people who need us. Let's urge charities on, let's give them the room to breathe, and our support to take courage.

In the future, as we begin to acclimatise ourselves with the pace of technological change - everything - from the 'internet of things', 'smart cities' and especially the notion of things being 'built to last' may come to feel outdated.

In order to get the most out of your gut feelings, make a definite effort to focus your attention on it more regularly and make the time to care for it. Notice what it is telling you, whether it is saying 'this doesn't feel right' or 'this feels good' or 'Don't do it'.

Are you familiar with that feeling? You start a new project, you would like to move to a different place, make an important phone call - and then suddenly it happens: the fear paralyzes you. You don´t reach out to the receiver, you stay there to live where you are - in other words - you give up?

Decades of experience and leadership is not enough today to engender trust in a brand. People are looking for honesty and transparency from brands. With information and opinion only a click away it is much easier for consumers to feel that the wool is being pulled over their eyes. McDonalds acknowledged this and success has come their way.

Trust Her, She's a Doctor...

My life has shown me that the biggest epiphanies come in the most unlikely of places. I just never expected a hospital treatment room to be one of them. And I definitely didn't expect the words of a Nuclear Medicine doctor to affect me so much that they touched me more deeply inside than anything I could have possibly imagined.

How on earth did this indifference and apathy set in? Why do we have this attitude that MPs are some different species altogether? Why do we demand they know the price of a pint of milk as if this is a perfect indicator of the political clout they hold?

The digital revolution has caused seismic changes for brands - from the way they connect with their audiences, to the channels they can use to reach them. The way people are consuming news has been turned on its head, with more and more people accessing content from global sources, using multiple platforms and sharing huge volumes of self-produced content themselves.
