Tim Cook

When the Mail on Sunday outed Lord Browne ten years ago, he was forced to step down from BP in a matter of days. Yet when Tim Cook proactively decided to come out in a Businessweek interview in 2014, the global corporate community applauded.

The words used on both occasions couldn’t have been more different: Lord Browne spoke of “embarrassment and shock” for being outed. Tim Cook, on the other hand, said he was “proud to be gay,” adding: “I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me”. Continue Reading »

underworldbloodwarsFrances Winston feels that Blood Wars takes itself a little too seriously, but if you’re a die-hard fan, you’ll be delighted with this

Directed by: Anna Foerster – Starring: Kate Beckinsdale, Theo James, Lara Pulver, James Faulkner, Charles Dance

They have very kindly inserted a segment at the beginning, that gives you a quick recap of everything that has happened to date, in order to bring you up to speed. And since they had the wherewithal to do this, I won’t bother explaining the story arc so far. Continue Reading »

Lyric Video: Ed Sheeran – Castle On The Hill

Lyrics almost everyone can relate to – Castle On The Hill – from Ed Sheeran’s latest album, Divide. Enjoy!

“When I was six years old I broke my leg
I was running from my brother and his friends
tasted the sweet perfume of the mountain grass I rolled down
I was younger then, take me back to when I
Found my heart and broke it here, made friends and lost them through the years
And I’ve not seen the roaring fields in so long, I know, I’ve grown
but I can’t wait to go home” – Ed Sheeran
