We all have an opinion when talking about what our local council spends money on. Some of us believe that money should be spent on business, while others think it should be spent on the community.
However, it seems that everyone has the same opinion on what the council of Southwark in London have been spending their money on. That's because they spent over £15,000 re-designing their logo. People aren't just mad about the amount they spent, but they’re also angry about the fact that the logo barely looks different.
This all happened in 2014, but because of the Freedom of Information Act, it's now become public knowledge and people are definitely not happy with it.
Q) How much would you spend of a logo for your business?
Q) Do you think all council should have restricting limits in place, ensuring they spend the tax-payer's money more wisely?
A tech company called ZTE is asking people to go on to their site and submit their ideas and designs for the perfect smartphone. They'll then choose the best one, create it and release the phone before the end of next year.
So far, designs have included having a second screen, a solar panel case, desktop mode (to make the phone look and work like a PC) and finally, a phone which is dedicated to Pokémon GO.
Q) If you could design a phone and have it made for you, what featured would it have?
Rules: I say a slang word and the players have to guess what the word means. Whoever's the closest to the real definition wins.
1) IntroSexual: Being sexually attracted to yourself.
2) Canucklehead: A Canadian of limited intelligence.
3) Behaving British: Doing something and then immediately regretting it after.
4) Crotch Spiders: Pubic hair that sneaks out of a bikini bottom.
5) Lie-Fi: When your phone or tablet tell you that you're connected to wi-fi, yet you're unable to load anything.
One of the most popular holiday locations is Magaluf. The majority of people going there are usually young people, looking to party, drink, dance, hook up and have a good time. However, a recent article has shown some of the tattoos that people have been getting.
They included; a Harry Potter scar on the forehead, the Pringles logo on the arm, the Heinz logo, a pork scratching, pac-man chasing a ghost, Gareth Bale's name, etc.
The impression which I got from the article is that it's now a normal thing to get a crazy tattoo before leaving Magaluf.
Q) If you had to get a crazy tattoo, what would you get? (I'd get a tall glass of milkshake going all the way up my arm.)
Q) Do you agree with tattoos? The idea of having something drawn on to you forever?
A recent study has revealed how people in Britain feel about those who suffer with mental health issues. In a nutshell, it show that we're uncomfortable being around those with mental illnesses.
The survey gave results, such as 90% of people saying that they wouldn't let someone with Schizophrenia look after their child. To me, that's understandable.
However, it also reveals surprising results, such as 32% of people saying that they wouldn't socialise with people suffering with depression.
Q) Do you feel uncomfortable around people with mental health issues?
Personally, I feel that we all go through mental health illnesses in our life, but people are good at hiding them or they just don't last very long. I feel that we should give everyone a chance. But, when it comes to serious mental issues, such as schizophrenia, I believe that we should be careful. Of course, we should give everyone a chance and get along with everyone, but it's important to be a bit more cautious around people who aren't necessary stable.
Q) Do you agree?
Mental Health Blogger, Jade Marie, shares her experience: "Personally, I've suffered discrimination, due to having mental health conditions. I was having a job interview once (I won't say where) and they all but said they were going to hire me. They were talking about how well I'd fit in the team, etc.
Then, they asked the question that always does it: do you have any physical or mental health problems. I told them I have MH, as I'm always honest about it it's nothing to be ashamed of) and they changed completely.
They went from you're amazing when-can-you-start to 'Hmm, okay. We'll call you back when we've made a decision in a second'.
I didn't get the job. This has happened to me more times than I can be bothered to count, I've only had three jobs in my life and I'm 23. People also act differently when they find out. I don't see why it matters. You liked me before and then you found out I have MH. I haven't suddenly sprouted another head and started breathing fire. I'm exactly the same person you've been talking to (and getting on really well with) all this time. The only thing that's changed is how you perceive me. And that's the problem, really: stigma is still a really big problem."

For those who live in a cave, the Rio 2016 Olympics started a few days ago. The media didn't paint the Rio Olympics very well, in the lead up to the opening ceremony. But, now that it has started, the atmosphere is great.
Q) What's your favourite Olympic sport so far? (Personally, I like watching the gymnastics)
Something that's annoyed me about the Olympics is the fact that businesses who aren't sponsors of the 2016 Olympics aren't allowed to mention it by name. This is never usually an issue apparently except in Rio because they don't think it's fair for businesses that aren't sponsors to benefit from the 2016 Olympics.
If you go on to Google's home page right now, you'll see that they're calling it the Doodle Fruit Games. Personally I think this is ridiculous and I don't think that the Olympic Committee should be allowed to have laws like this.
Q) Do you think it's fair for Rio to make this rule?
