1. The Women of Bletchley Park
The Women of Bletchley Park
During the Second World War, many intelligent people were hired to work at Bletchley Park in the United Kingdom, decoding the secret messages encrypted by Enigma machines. What is less well known is that over 80% of the people at Bletchley Park were women. Not all of them were codebreakers, but ...

2. How to help the homeless
How to help the homeless
I've been concerned about helping people to bootstrap their lives for a while, primarily in getting from being a normal person to being someone who can achieve great things. But it's not all that. One of the most important steps of this is to be able to get from rock bottom to being able to help...

4. Brilliant Movie Soundtracks and Scores
Brilliant Movie Soundtracks and Scores
I'm a huge fan of music at the best of times, yet there's something special to be noted about the soundtracks of movies. Scores and popular soundtracks alike can instantly take you back into the memory of the movie you heard it in. They can also make or break a movie - a beautiful movie with a k...

5. UNICEF: Help the invisible children
After a shock reminder that there are plenty of invisible children in the world, I wanted to do something to help them. But this isn't an easy task to achieve: How can I really help a child I don't know who lives in poverty on the other side of the world? This is the question. I want to make an a...

6. Best Books for Career Design
Most people leave school with little idea what they really want to do with life or how they're going to achieve it. It's a big problem, since life plans can't effectively be put in to place until you have some idea where you're going. Also, too many people are stuck thinking that a job choice ne...

13. Best Chilli Recipe
I thought I'd share my favourite chilli recipe with you all. The reason I love it so much is that it's really easy and can be made in 5 minutes (when you've got all the ingredients handy). It's entirely vegan unless you choose to add garnishes or have the meat alternative. This means it's pretty ...

18. Agen, Aquitaine, France
Agen today is a sleepy little town, nestled between hills and a river in the far East of Aquitaine. It's difficult to imagine that it used to be a bustling Roman trading centre, or at the heart of the 100 year war with England. Despite this obvious historical significance, Agen is modest and fri...

27. Squidoo: How to be a good squidizen
There's plenty of nice Squidoo lensmasters out there who try to be a part of this community and do the right thing. There's others who might think they're doing well, but are actually driving people away with harsh comments on forums and on lenses. So, in order to keep Squidoo a happy fun place t...

29. Terry Pratchett - Discworld
I've been a Pratchett fan for a while now. His books are full of parodies and his infectious, silly humour. Reading the Discworld series is one of the most enjoyable ways you can pass time on your own. But to really understand, you'll have to read it for yourself! Here's a quick run-down on the ...

32. Brilliant Movie Musicals
I love a good sing-along movie. In fact, I probably like them too much. If I'm watching a movie musical I know and love it's usually best to see it in the exclusive company of crazed enthusiasts or in the privacy of my own home. So, I've put together this list of musicals that you can watch on D...
