When David Lynch tweeted that negotiations had broken down and that he was walking away, I had a load of questions. The first thirty-seven of these questions all consisted of the word 'WHY?' screamed heavenwards at an uncaring God as I stood shirtless in a rainstorm. The thirty-eighth question was 'Well, what now?'

I wrote this blog, because so many women have been asking me if I can help them to change from someone who is eternally seeking to be "thin", trying every fad diet, wasting their lives looking for the next "skinny" fix, and are miserable in the meantime. They want to know how they can lose that mindset and get healthy and strong instead...

There's a crumpled old lady, taking the late afternoon air on the steps at the entrance to the abandoned mansion. 85 rupees to show us round, she says. That's about £1.50, and, as with the temples we've visited over the last weeks, we must take off our shoes and leave them at the entrance.

Why I am So Very Bored of Negative Portrayals of Abortion in Soap Land

Becky Hopper | Posted 07.04.2015 | UK Universities & Education
Becky Hopper

Why is it that every portrayal of abortion on my TV screen is a negative one? Reality check... Abortions can be a positive thing too and considering one in three women in the UK have had an abortion, I would say there's a pretty high percent of the population who would agree with that.

Oisin Tymon Isn't Alone: Irish Bashing Is Endemic

Samantha Rea | Posted 30.03.2015 | UK

While the exchanges might seem harmless, they are indicative of an ingrained attitude that Irish people are fair game for mocking and stereotypical slurs. The drunken Irish, the stupid, backwards Irish, the bog Irish with accents so thick you can barely understand them.

Emmanuel is a serious contender, another act who has been brilliant throughout. This was absolutely amazing. His range is off the scale. From the minute he started singing, to the minute he stopped, it was faultless. 10/10

It was not Danny Cohen or Tony Hall or Oisin Tymon that killed Top Gear. It was the man who made it in the first place. I am a big fan of his work but, based on the evidence we have heard over the past few weeks, I am not such a big fan of the man any more.

Now, don't get me wrong; it's perfectly natural that broadband, TV and phone providers would want to keep you - you are after all their primary resource. But shouldn't customer retention be a natural by-product of great service and happy users?

Why TV Needs Jeremy Clarkson

Mark Dolan | Posted 26.03.2015 | UK Entertainment
Mark Dolan

So, we have the most awaited verdict since the trial of OJ Simpson. It's official: Jeremy Clarkson has been sacked as the presenter of Top Gear. How are we going to survive without this hard-drinking, chain-smoking, politically incorrect and surprisingly fat ex-public schoolboy? Going forward, it's clear Top Gear is dead without him. There is no motoring show they can create which will make a ripple of the impact that Top Gear makes. Why? Because Top Gear isn't about the cars. It's the heavily scripted, beer-bellied, corduroy-jacketed banter between Clarkson and his TV bitches James May and Richard 'Hamster' Hammond.

In my own personal experiences as a coach, changing the perception or story of the situation which creates the anxiety can be very effective. So often we forget where the anxiety came from in the first place.

Save HBO's 'Looking': The Best TV Series You're Not Watching

Leigh Clark | Posted 24.03.2015 | UK Entertainment
Leigh Clark

Its second series ends this week and, as yet, there is no news of a third season being confirmed. Looking (Sky Atlantic, Thurs, 11.50pm) is not only entertaining and engrossing but it is the most revolutionary show currently on television, yet it seems hardly anyone is watching it.
