We as journalists are privileged

Apr

So there is no escaping it – journalism and the news industry has been under a barrage of scrutiny for years. Following the aftermath of the phone hacking scandal and the Leveson inquiry, journalists have been well and truly under the spotlight. And rightfully so. Although the use of subterfuge is one of the few tools in a journalist’s arsenal to hold power to account, this power was abused.

It's not ok for rapists to marry their victims

The past four weeks had been filled with tears, sweat, stress and panic attacks as I tried to juggle revision for NCTJ exams and assignments. After the deadline today, I could finally sit back, relax and most importantly, catch up with my family and friends whom I’d ignored their messages from ages ago.

I turned on my iPad and my first reaction was “Great. What’s going on now?”

So where's home?

Apr

How often do you see people writing in their social media profile bio: ‘citizen of the world‘? I do see a lot and probably some of us would prefer to have a World Passport at the cosmoplitan age, which was founded by Garry Davis back in 1954. You can get it even nowadays for only $45, but as long as it is just a fantasy travel document, we need to identify ourselves. But how can you identify yourself if you do not feel being citizen of any country? What if there is no country you can call ‘home‘?

Having a birthday in the nineties and therefore growing up in the early years of the 21st century carries with it certain stereotypes relating to childhood activities. Throughout my circle of friends, we were utterly engulfed in professional wrestling, more specifically the WWE. The excitement of staying up late on a Sunday evening to watch the PPV events throughout the year was unmatched.

March 22, a sobering day for the British public as by the end of it, a city overcome with grievance and shock, had to accept the reality that public safety is a fragile myth. The millions that move freely around London now with some iota as to the danger they, you or I could encounter on any given moment might seem like a widespread case of paranoia and is not the appropriate action to take in my view.

Reasons of watching F1

Apr

As a F1 fan you are often confronted with the reproach that F1 is a boring sport and that it makes no sense watching it.

The first thing you will always hear as a F1 fan is:  “It’s just cars going around a road and trying to overtake the others.” I can see why neutral spectators think in this way, but there’s so much more about F1 than cars driving in circles.

It has emerged this week that Leyton Orient F.C, who have existed since 1881, are close to going out of business.

Reports earlier on in the week revealed that players and staff had not been paid for this month. Even the club doctor has quit over this row, which leaves the club needing to find a replacement in time for their game against Hartlepool United on Easter Monday, or face sanctions.

Players and staff who are not receiving their wages are fully within their rights to strike. Doing so can lead to a sacking by the club.
