The ASA (Advertising Standards Agency) has recently released a report which describes the clamp down on advertising codes. The new review aims to bring an end to body shaming, gender stereotypes and the idea of the perfect image. Everywhere you go, you are told how you should dress, what you should look like and who you should be. A major factor in this is advertising houses capitalising on increasing people's insecurities.  This is about to stop. The ASA has said “Our review shows that specific forms of gender stereotypes in ads can contribute to harm for adults and children. Such portrayals can limit how people see themselves.” 37% of respondents in a survey taken, agreed that the advertising industry has a responsibility not to use gender stereotypes, as reported by the G

The Room Where It Happened: Hamilton West End previews

Culture, LifeStyle
Hamilton's West End production opens on December 21st after previews which started on the 6th. There was an excited hum from the audience as we waited for the show to begin. Many flashes from phone cameras as they documented the night. The lights dimmed and an expectant silence fell over the theatre. The dramatic first bar of the musical began, and the title song which ushered in the show actualised what for many audience members was just a soundtrack. If you’ve listened to the soundtrack and are attached to the original cast, Aaron Burr, the first voice you hear when the show begins, might throw you off. Giles Terera is definitely no Leslie Odim Jr but by the end of Act One, he will win you over. The sincerity in his voice during his duet with Jamael Westman (Alexander Hamilton), “Dea

How independent cafes grow fast

Business, Culture, LifeStyle
Coffee culture is full of beans in London. Small independent cafes are developing well despite facing fierce competition from big chains such as Costa, Nero's and Starbucks. Young British get used to grabbing a cup of coffee on the go or spending some time in cafes to socialise and work. The British Coffee Association reveals that people drink approximately 55 million cups of coffee per day in the UK. There were fewer than 10,000 coffee shops in the UK 10 years ago, but by the end of last year there were more than 22,000 cafes. Big chains like Costa and Starbucks have doubled in number, but small independent cafes are also emerging from the industry and growing fast, according to coffee market researchers Allegra.   Costa takes a leading position in the UK coffee market, wit

  Silently sitting in Mariah Carey’s penthouse, Marilyn Monroe’s white piano is locked away from the world. Sold at a private Christie’s auction in 1999, it is unclear if the public will ever be able to view it again. Is the sale of personal memorabilia threatening the loss of parts of music and film history? However, It’s positive news for auction houses. The popularity of film and music memorabilia have steadily increased over the last decade. Christina Moriame from Ewbank Auction house believes its due to “more activities and awareness of sales in this specialism, marketing and being able to be pushed by valuers” another significant point is that “items are becoming older thus more collectible” she added. Auction houses are now cashing in, generating profits boasting far h
