I'm not sure the principle of privacy applies when the future king of England tries to lobby elected members of Parliament for changes in legislation.
The Supreme Court says letters by Prince Charles to government departments can be published, after a campaign by the Guardian newspaper.

Great article on the sorrows of work.
Almost certainly, you’ve been having a bad time at work. In a perfect world, work should do so much for us: lend us purpose and a sense of achievement, offer us meaning and comradeship. But invariably, something goes wrong: our talents feel like they’re not being recognised, the company seems un

Thanks +Ph.Creative for pointing me to this. Liverpool are to the first 3D city in the U.K. on Google Earth. If that wasn't exciting enough, Google are opening an office with 50 jobs going in Liverpool.

A sad tale for gadget fanatics like me. This was my favourite shop once.

Interesting views on the future of marketing, particularly relating to the relationship between Digital and traditional marketing activities. Also interesting in the current state of SEO. 
The rapid incorporation of digital approaches has made marketing an industry of silos. It's time to rethink the way we build our teams and our skill sets to break those walls apart.

Just seen this. Things seem unclear. The pictures appear to be real but the jobs... Sadly, perhaps not. http://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/news/liverpool-news/google-deny-making-3d-map-8665663

Is there a better example of how stupid apparently intelligent people can be? Marin County has an average income of $100,000 and yet has the same level of immunisations as Mozambique. The people of Mozambique aren't stupid, they're just poor. 
We treat it like a pest, but it’s one of humanity’s oldest, nastiest foes. Now, it’s coming back—and it’s not alone.

We're gadget mad and more than half of all ad spend in the UK is going to go digital. 
More than 50% of £15.7bn advertiser spend will go on digital and online media in 2015 beating print, cinema, buses, billboards, TV and radio combined

I agree. People object to variable pricing on an emotional level but it makes sense logically. Uber is not the most popular company in the world and it seems irresponsible to increase prices at the time of emergency such as the snow storms in the U.S. but, just like most markets out there, the cab market is ruled by normal economic forces and being emotional about it isn't going to get you home. You have to pay those cab drivers to get them out of their comfortable, safe homes and on the streets.
Odeon Cinemas is introducing dynamic pricing for film tickets – the most sensible idea I've heard since Ryanair introduced its ‘U-shaped temporal pricing profile’.

One of my favourite pubs in Liverpool. It's cosy and friendly but does get very crowded sometimes. Generally has an excellent range of cask ales.

Great pub with a good range of well kept cask ales. I understand there is music here some nights though I haven't experienced that. The real highlight for me was the excellent food for only £5. I enjoyed a delicious chilli and the meat balls looked good as well.

Thoroughly enjoyed the tour by a very knowledgeable and convivial student. My only gripe was that we weren't allowed to see the actual studios with their huge north facing windows which was a shame as I suspect this is one of the best features of the building. I guess you can't have tourists disturbing the students but still. Otherwise this is an impressive and unusual building.

A great new pub. A really friendly place that serves top class real ale in oversized glasses. What more could you ask for?

I've been taking my car to Dave for years and he is by far the best car mechanic I've every used. The best thing about him is that I absolutely trust him to always give the best advice and he's very good value for money.

My favourite pub in Liverpool. Great location next to the Albert Dock. Always serving an excellent selection of real ales including several brewed on the premises.
