You may remember a time not too long ago when going into your local town or city for some recreational spending would take the best part of a day. Relying on public transport, finding the item you want, the perpetually long queues of retail, it’s tiring no matter what your fitness levels are. But when you can order the item you want online, replacing the fee you pay for public transport with that of the next day delivery option, ditching queues for resting on the sofa with a cup of tea, it’s to no surprise that many are choosing to…

Money can be a touchy subject. Many of us feel awkward discussing our finances, but when studies show that three quarters of Britons were worried about their finances in 2018, it becomes clear that we can’t avoid the topic for much longer.

The word, as so many do, has evolved and changed over time to describe outlooks and behaviours befitting a man of note, but the word itself is…

When you hear math, what comes to your mind? The internal groan that surfaces in the minds of most people is a testament to how difficult this subject is. Even though this is one of the most important subjects, very few people stand to share the glory that comes with it. This comes from the existence of an underlying consensus that some of us are not math people. If we are to take a closer look at this proposition, one thing that stands out is the reality that we all do math. As human beings, we carry within us the…

Gin is the drink of the moment, and it has dominated the UK bar scene in recent years.   Often paired with fruits, vegetables and spices to complement its flavour, gin has become the go-to tipple for spirit lovers everywhere. An astounding 66 million bottles of the juniper-based drink were sold in the UK last year.  And the total number of gin distilleries in the UK has now reached 315, more than double the number there was six years ago. So what has caused the revival of this old-school tipple?  And with energy costs a major concern for most businesses,…

But while any level of offensive behavior should be considered distasteful, it may be difficult to discern the line between someone being a jerk and someone committing a crime against you. For example, if your waiter calls you “sweetie” when you…
