Mr Gorbachev tear down that phone by Martin Fullard

I carry about me a self-indulgent belief that I possess a singular wit. Nothing massages my ego quite like the approval of a good quip. On quiet nights I like to spool through my Facebook news feed, pouncing on feeble status updates and un-humorous comments.

So, with that in mind, I swoop on my social media prey and wait for the satisfying “like” from my peers.

Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and even YouTube- all popular social mediums exhibiting this trend of displaying gore, violence and inhumane, graphic imagery too real to be portrayed. _

Unpaid Internships: Make Sure It's A Good One by Marie Alexandra

The topic of internships is something that has been talked about a lot recently. In a time where unemployment, especially amongst young people, is a real problem, internships sometimes seem like the only way to gain some of that oh-so-coveted experience. And if you want to work in a particularly popular field, it seems internships are the only way in (something I think a lot of wannabe journalists will attest to).
