Whatever the result of the referendum, it is likely to lead to a country that is deeply fractured, perhaps indefinitely. By and large this is a direct result of the campaigning tactics that Salmond has fostered, if not encouraged. He and the rest of the Yes campaign might not have destroyed Scotland in order to save it, but they might very well have irreversibly divided it.
If Scotland goes independent they'll wonder, what went wrong in Westminster? In other words how, within weeks of the referendum did 300 years of union and 3 years of political confidence become a sudden and desperate battleground between Team Scotland and Team Westminster?
The fact is that, while previous generations had the excuse of widespread ignorance of smoking's effects (indeed, at home we have a book from the early 20th century that includes smoking under its list of 'recreational activities'), the same cannot be said for us Millenials. We knew exactly what we were getting into; we even had the warning photographs to prove it.
For me, owning a campervan is something more than having a classic car to show off, it is part of the family. You don't get funny stories from your holidays across the UK if you leave it in the garage. Almost six years on from that eventful first breaking down the van is a bigger part of the family than ever, and selling it would be like ripping the heart out of the family.
A sticking plaster needs to be applied to significant cuts in university funding by subsidising languages at University level: essentially helping those departments stay afloat at a difficult time. If that happens then UK businesses may still have a chance when it comes to keeping up with the ambitious BRIC countries. If not, then the UK economy may never fully recover.
A recent study conducted by the social mobility commission concluded that elitism is so embedded in British society that it could be called social engineering. The 'government report' showed that people educated in private schools and Oxbridge have created a 'closed shop at the top'...
New students throughout the UK are being drawn to Facebook groups they believe are run by their universities and students' unions. They are not -these groups are often run by external event promoters seeking to gain ticket sales to club events they have organised. Along with the name, some are also using the university's official branding to deceive students.
It is known that acceptance of long-term chronic illness is seen as a substantial problem in patients with chronic illnesses. Absence of acceptance can lead to clinical improvements being delayed considerably. It can also lead to poorer adherence to the current and ongoing medical treatment. They may be branded and judged by others as being in denial.
Students spend £1,070 per academic year on books and equipment alone and your student loan will only stretch so far, especially when you discover that the average (non-London) student can expect to spend £22,189 a year! WOW! BUT there are ways to save as a student and still have money for beer!!
Women's lack of equality in so many crucial areas does eclipse many of the issues that men can feel unequal about. Yet, these opinions are often used in comments in feminism discussions/articles/blogs to belittle the progress and aim of feminism as a movement, but they need to be taken into context with the wider issues of gender equality.
It's never too late to travel, never too late in your life and never too late in the year. With the end of summer and weather cooling off, many travellers are trying to take advantage of one last trip before it gets too cold. I totally understand. From my experience, I believe that a great choice for that last trip before it gets too cold is going to a festival.
Lots of people see Ibiza and automatically associate it with endless parting in world renowned clubs. Yes, those words are synonymous with certain parts of the island, but there is another side of Ibiza that offers idyllic beaches, fantastic Spanish culture and quaint towns.
Despite being freshmen, there is no freshers. In its place lies its politer transatlantic cousin "Welcome Week". This five day festival of school pride contains over five hundred events ultimately designed to create mingling environments, and ease us all into university and city life...
The psychological state of empathy and its ongoing practice - in which we imagine ourselves in the position of someone else or of another group of people - is often difficult to summon.
The grounds contain 14 enormous beer tents spread across a 42-acre area. That's somewhere in the region of 32 football fields to you and me.
The first round of domestic rugby's top flight Aviva Premiership is complete, and each fixture was packed with the sort of excitement and intensity only rugby can bring. I spoke to former Lions and England international Neil Back MBE on Saturday morning before the London Double Header.
For many amongst us, choices are simple, straightforward and so are life objectives. To you guys I bow out as I'm probably one of the majority who struggle to make sense of why things don't turn out the way we want them to.
