As the new year was seen in at midnight on the 1st January 2018 with a series of fireworks and confetti cannons around the globe it too was accompanied by a wave of voices from across generational and racial barriers that when spoken together are only now beginning to be heard.

Why 2017's Music Landscape Wasn't All Doom and Gloom: Five Great Albums That Came Out Last Year

Jan
14

With 2017 finally coming to a close, music critics and fans have been compiling their year end lists based on the music that they loved and what they hated. It was a strange year for music one way or another as streaming being used as an equivalent for sales meant that the age old 'X-Factor generic factory number 1's' were nowhere near as common as they were previously.

2018: a better year for Theresa May?

Jan
14

2018 could hardly be worse for Theresa May than 2017, an agonizing and even at times, humiliating year for the Prime Minister, with an election she only just about managed to avoid losing outright despite a thumping victory looking almost certain only weeks before. But glimmers of hope managed to shine through the sweeping clouds that covered much of the political world last year and could forecast a better year.

Why I care about the Olympics

Jan

After years of denying it, I can finally admit that I am somewhat of a sports fan. And by that I mean that I could watch anything, including sports that are big back home but basically not anywhere else and those that are exclusively popular in many places but Poland, and during all those years that I’ve been a fan, the only people that I could talk about them to were my parents and my friends who had been patient enough to listen to me ramble about something that they have absolutely no interest in. Kind of like right now.

The Power of Sport

Jan

“Some people think football is a matter of life and death. I assure you, it’s much more serious than that” A famous quote from the late, great Bill Shankly. Shankly probably didn’t mean this literally yet recent events are showing that there may be some truth behind it. Sport is a massive part of my life, I’m a season ticket holder at Gillingham and a member at Kent and believe me it can ruin a weekend if we lose, But more important than life and death? Not a chance.

Culture Shock

Jan

I come from an American culture that is very different from the British culture. It makes learning the new lifestyle a little exciting and a little scary at the same time. I grew up in Illinois, and the culture and way of life in Britain is much different than where I'm from.

The Magic of the Cup

Jan

We’ve been hearing for a number of years that the FA Cup is dead. We’re told that the big teams rest too many players, the fans don’t care about it much, and it’s lost its magic. But in 2018, 147 years after it was founded, the FA Cup is well and truly and alive.

I really wanted to use this blog post to discuss a New Year Resolution of mine, something that I'm absolutely passionate about. Let me assure you now that this post isn't going to be a list of motivational and typical resolutions most of us set and forgot within a week.

North? South? No- it’s the Middle

Jan

I live in Medway, and it doesn’t take much in depth knowledge of the compass to work out that Medway is in the South of England. But I’m not from Medway, I’m from a land far, far away, Newark, Nottinghamshire. Seemingly both from my accent and looking at a map, no-one has ever been quite able to place quite where I’m from, (Often I get, well you’re certainly English aren’t you).

Palestine should just give up!

Jan
14

The issue of the Israeli and Palestinian conflict started since 1948 when the State of Israel was created. Though, Jewish Israelis believe that the territory that is Israel is occupying was the homeland of the Jewish people for over three thousand years. The Palestinians on the other hand have been living in what is now west bank and occupied Israeli territory for centauries and believe that their state should be on the borders of pre-1967 war.
