As summer comes to a close and the nights draw in, you might find yourself looking for a new reality TV obsession to fill the Love Island-sized gap in your life. Enter ITV’s Ready To Mingle – and there is a lot to unpack in an unconventional dating show that revolves around lies, encourages cheating and proves that the bar is literally on the floor for men in 2021.
Ready To Mingle may sound like a tacky hour-long shagathon underscored by house music and b-roll of luscious bea...

In a study conducted by Jukka Sihovenen from Aalto University School of Business, and Sami Vahamaa, Veda Fatmy, and John Kihn from the University of Vaasa, it was revealed that firms with LGBTQ+ friendly polic...
Graduation at the University of Notre Dame’s Mendoza College of Business was a joyous event for MBA graduates. But when, two days later, a scathing open letter written by former leaders of the Notre Dame Mendoza LGBTQ and Allies Club appeared on LinkedIn, the business school community was shaken.
In the letter, Eric Sweeney and Teja Nellury outlined their experiences of discrimination at the university.* They had, they said, a responsibility to prospective MBAs to share just how uncomfortable...

Few of us have found ourselves jostling, pushing, dancing and singing together in the past year, but a sold out event aimed at supporting Britain’s independent music venues is a pretty good place to pick up where we left off.
You see Frank live, as you do one of his openers, the optimistic Beans on Toast. These are singers that are made their very best by an angry audience; a loud audience; an audience they can surf on. Everyone we speak to is emotional, excited, many nervous...several masked...

Despite a growing corporate awareness of LGBTQ+ issues and involvement in annual Pride celebrations, many LGBTQ+ people are unhappy in the workplace.
In a survey by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), 31% of LGBTQ+ workers in the United States said they feel unhappy or depressed at work and 46% of LGBTQ+ workers said they are closeted, meaning they do not disclose their sexuality or gender identity at work.
Since 2002, the HRC has published its Corporate Equality Index to rank businesses on how ...
With its maroon awning, trendy crowds, and rave reviews, as a fresh Tooting resident, it was hard to avoid the gravitational pull of this uber-cool foodie joint.
The staff look like they’ve stepped off an indie-cool Instagram page and eating is informal, dotted around bars, tables and lamps and Daddy Bao is more like the hip cousin, who introduces you to a never-before-heard band that becomes huge and shows you how to roll a spliff.
If every person in the UK used one single-use face mask to protect themselves from Covid each day for a year, that would create 66,000 tons of unrecyclable contaminated plastic waste, according to University College London. That’s 10 times the impact on climate change than using reusable masks.
It’s the unintended consequence of the mass use of personal protective equipment (PPE) caused by the health and safety response to Covid. NHS use of disposable masks alone is up 3057% year-on-year, and...
I am a seeker of excellent set menu deals, and I find OpenTable is the best place to find a cheap dinner in a top place for under £30.

It’s nine fifteen and the kettle isn’t boiled yet. You’ve hit snooze six times. Intentions of an early morning run followed by a shower, a smoothie, and some meditation, have gone out of the window.
Sure, you could’ve risen earlier—when you had to make it to the subway on time, you did. But now all you want to do is roll from bed to desk with as little effort as p...
Proof that fairy lights cannot improve everything | Guildford Kitchen, 1st May 2021 Review — The Extra Clove
