In your 500 word synopsis, should you be describing all of the twists and turns of the narrative and explaining the ending or should it be more of a teaser?

Increase sentences for carrying acid with intent and for acid attacks. At the moment the punishment is far less severe than using a knife so of course it's going to be more 'popular'. If nothing else make examples of these morons who conducted the last attack.
04/26/2017 at 22:36
The article quotes someone talking about bleach not acid. Do they know what was actually used? Bleach would not cause the scarring pictured until it was high molar sodium hypochlorite (bleach) or sodium hydroxide (which would slowly melt tissue) (sorry that's the biochemist in me) it is truly awful to me that people choose to do this. I will never understand how people can be so inhuman as to deliberately irreparably ruin another person or person's life
04/26/2017 at 18:33
Hang them. Caught with acid? Life imprisonment, only allowed out in a coffin. And attack someone with acid? Hanged and all money of the perpetrators and their families used for cosmetic surgery to help the victims get their lives back together. Harsh? Don't fucking throw acid at people. Getting sick to death of violent criminals being treated so leniently but someone who commits benefit fraud or dodges their tv lisence or sleeps on a bench because their homeless gets dragged through the dirt......

Jade Emily you could be like Robert de niro where he plays a really old intern - it's about the ups and downs of interning for demanding female boss and how he builds relationships with younger interns and how female boss finally comes to respect him as both a friend and first and foremostly an intern.... I forget what it's called.
But yh apply!

Rating brands on living wages and supply chain, the question is – who has come out on top?
These are the most transparent brands on the high street right now

But, this Transparency Index simply rates how much information the companies give about their manufacturing process... It doesn't rate the actual working conditions / sustainability etc..... So in theory a company could score 95%, by being fully transparent about it's awful worker conditions. So it's still up to the consumer to do more research.
Have I got that right?? :)

We need more awareness yesterday marked the 4th anniversary of the Rana Plaza disaster that took 1,1200 plus lives. Some of those surviving victims have still not been compensated. How can we in the west live with knowing that disaster has left 800 or more children orphaned, families have not been compensated as bodies not located and many left amputated and not able to work after such a disaster.

I love the Pool but, respectfully, I'm not sure that we can complain about female politicians being sexualised and then do the same to men... it belittles what he has accomplished and is a little hypocritical.
04/25/2017 at 07:03
How can you actually take a positive stance on the fact that Le Pen finished second ahead of all the left and left-leaning candidates? This is liberal bollocks gone mad.

FFS as a Shipley feminist activist I'm feeling mightily let down by the London-centric media hype around Sophie Walker. Have you seen the response from local women to this news on the WEP Facebook page? That a lot of us are dismayed at having a candidate parachuted in from London for a publicity stunt? Do you know that there is a massive grassroots group of Shipley feminist campaigners organising against Philip Davies since last August, that the WEP has completely failed to engage with?
04/24/2017 at 15:56
'Philip Davies will finally face a revolt over his revolting ways'. For information, there has been a lot of hard work on the ground in his constituency for a long time in opposition to PD, long before the WEP appeared. This article acknowledges none of that!

Not just white collared office workers. I'm a community midwife in the uk, I have my regular shifts plus time on call. It's a stressful and emotional job and I have a young family. To a number of my colleagues it is inconceivable (and testament to my level of dedication) that I will not set up home access for my work emails. I have a work phone, it's off when I'm off duty. I refuse to have my work encroach completely on my personal life.

No-one can be efficient for that long anyway; it's just a form of control. I'm a teacher and there is no way I am as efficient at 3pm as I am at 9am. I say we all work four hours a day and spend the remainder of the day reading, studying, spending time with family and being naturally meditative. To hell with capitalism - it's the precursor to depression, anxiety and a lacklustre existence.

I love this.
I got married 4 years ago. It was an amazing, wonderful, beautiful day. But if I did it all again tomorrow, there would be a few significant changes to the guest list.
That usually makes me sad to think about, but now it makes me happy. I like the perspective that it was a snapshot of how my life was then.

Ten women speak honestly about the menopause

I'm loving my menopause, honestly, the Kirsty Walk programme was too much doom, gloom and pessimism. Yes, things are changing but it's not all bad news. To start off with I'm saving a fortune on my heating bill. I would also recommend using the expression vaginal atrophy as much as possible to improve your seating position on the bus, tram, train or in the pub! I've never seen men and slippery giblets of girls provide me with so much space with so much speed.
04/26/2017 at 20:25
If they want to make menopause more acceptable and no longer a taboo why broadcast the programme at 10.45pm? Why not 8pm when many other pseudo-scientific programmes are broadcast?
04/22/2017 at 18:01
I'm yet to experience menopause but several women in my life have. They never really spoke about it but I know one or two really really suffered. It is astounding that even though all women go through this little is spoken of it and we need to be talking about it. I know how isolating it has made some women feel. I do wonder if it was a male thing how different the dialogue would be?

I'm a nerdy computer programmer, and have always attracted nerdy guys. The most awesome nerdy man in the known universe is my husband, but before I met him I always had mixed experiences dating nerds. Some of them would really creep me out with their 'nice guy' personas, and their mentality that they could win me over if they just tried hard enough. I always got on best with guys who just treated me like a fellow nerd ~ just one who happens to inhabit a female body.
04/22/2017 at 19:15
Ok, I agree with the general point. However, Superbad. I feel you've missed the point. The girls in that film already like the nerds right at the start. The nerds just don't know what to do about it. The point of the story is the nerds eventually realise they don't need to be nervous, but they also don't need to play games and get the girls drunk.
