You'd think a book would be the least dangerous thing you could send to your friend who's just begun their summer holiday. Nothing could be much safer, it might seem, than relaxing on a deckchair, in a peaceful garden or hotel poolside terrace, with a book and a cool drink. But this is Northern Ireland, and when we send parcels, we have to risk assess.

Tackle Your Self Doubt

Sometimes we convince ourselves before we start that that, we shouldn't even try! All it takes is one small doubt to give up and to send our dreams and aspirations into a tailspin. Simply put, doubts sabotage you. They do not nurture or serve you.

Open Relationships for Monogamous People

There's a rumour going around, propagated by [some] polyamorists, that polyamory is a superior ideology to monogamy. Let's face it, 'limitless love' does sound wholly honorable and blissful, even if 'limitless sex' with multiple partners sounds ~ for most of our sex-negative society ~ quite the opposite.

Trust has become one of the world's most important commodities. Just ask the former CEO of a major American retailer, who resigned after a particularly large cyber attack or any other major organisation that has been hacked and customer data apparently lost.

The Edelman Trust Barometer found that 84 per cent of those surveyed think business can pursue its self-interest whilst doing good work for society. Giving young people a chance is a crucial part of doing good, and helps build trust externally and internally.

You and Me: Our Collective Consciousness

A pot-smoking friend once regaled me with his theory of a collective human consciousness, his idea being that supposedly we are all connected by some sort of invisible net that links our minds. I remember laughing heartily at the concept as I inhaled secondary smoke while thinking this is what drugs do to one's brain- invent wild theories without any foundation whatsoever.

Building Trust on Social Media: A Recipe to Increase Turnout at the 2014 European Elections

The upcoming European elections will offer a valuable insight into the current state of democracy in the EU. While the vote will lay the foundations for a greater involvement of citizens in the Union's policy-making process, a poor result may end up undermining the legitimacy of the EU system as a whole.

The story of the rise-and-fall of jailed stockbroker Jordan Belfort has sparked controversy from almost every corner of the globe. With the mainstay of the film being immoral financiers targeting the weak and vulnerable to fund a life of ridiculous debauchery, it's no great surprise.

What if Valentine's Day, or relationships in general, were a stark reminder of the most painful and distressing events that you ever experienced? What if they triggered a trauma so terrifically challenging that it forever altered your approach to life? Welcome to Valentine's Day, and relationships, for adoptees.

Still Standing: The Reputation of Co-operatives

The challenges of The Co-operative Bank and the furore around the role of the former chair, made co-operatives - businesses that are member-owned - an unhappy national news story in late 2013. Three months on and I feel that I can breathe again. But what difference did these high profile troubles make to the wider co-operative sector and the long-term reputation of our business model?

Any privacy professional will tell you that in the early days of their career they had to come to an unfortunate realisation - people respect what you do, but are generally uninterested.

How Open Is Your Open Relationship?

When people ask me how open our relationship is, what they mean is - how far have I opened the door? Is it ajar? Do you discuss when and who to invite into your relationship? Or are you free to date whomever you want, whenever you want and for however long you want?

Virtual Reputation in the Digital Age: An Asset We Should Be Careful Not to Waste

Getting fired because of a bad joke is certainly a painful experience on its own. But watching the joke as it makes its way to the front pages of major international newspapers, pushed by a global wave of public indignation, is definitely a lot worse. Especially when it's just a few days before Christmas.

The Importance of Trust Between Supplier and Client - Whether You're a Dominatrix or a Plumber

Repeat business is great for me, probably not so much for a plumber; that might just mean they hadn't got it right the first time round. Yet seeing clients more than once ensures I know just where to take them, how far they can go and helps me to push them even further if they wish. I don't get it right every single time though...

How Much Do You Trust Yourself and the World Around You?

Have you ever marvelled at how babies and young children exude pure trust in the world around them? It's worth remembering we were all like that once. But when I became curious about my own loss of trust story, I discovered I'd grown up with a lot of fear and negativity around me.

In Whom We Trust

Dr Steve McCabe

Currently I believe that what is urgently required is greater truth and integrity from those in whom we put our trust. The trouble is, the embedded culture of secrecy and obfuscation makes this objective extremely difficult to achieve. Moreover, simply increasing performance measures and targets will definitely not help.

'Untarnished Transparency' Is the Only Way Back for Energy Companies

Tom Clive | Posted 23.01.2014 | UK Politics

Energy companies should be more transparent and structured in the way they justify price increases. The disparity between what Ofgem and the energy companies have said has left the latter in an awkward position. The four energy firms that have announced price hikes so far, have said that the rises are due to increasing wholesale prices, and the cost of transporting energy to homes.

This doesn't of course mean that everyone is convinced by Salmond's arguments on independence, but it does mean that the SNP and their leader enjoy considerably more credibility than Blair McDougall is willing to admit.
