Don't call your loved one SUGAR

Christopher Clark makes a strong case as to why people should not call their significant other using words like “Sugar”, “Honey”, Cupcake” or “Sweetie”.  These terms of endearment are partly to be blamed for the sickness epidemic we are experiences over the past 50 to 60 years.  Fascinating talk.   Watch and Share.

The Sleepwalkers; how Europe went to war in 1914 by Christopher Clark

This is a complex and highly detailed account of the events leading to the outbreak of the First World War. As we approach the centenary of this event, it is a timely book, and I hope that the popular accounts of the events of 1914 that we are going to see in the next twelve months base their analysis in a large part on this book. 687 more words
