  1. Women in their 40s, 50s and 60s are leading the technology revolution

    1
    Article by Julie Tempest. When I read the headline ‘Sorry, Young Man, You’re Not the Most Important Demographic in Tech’, I gave out a little cheer. One that grew louder when the article went on to say that despite ‘companies hamfisted, male-focused marketing efforts, women are the dominant users of a wide variety of new technologies’. And the best part was the closing paragraph: ‘So it turns out if you want to find out what the future looks like, you should be asking women. And just before you think that means you should be asking 18-year-old women, it actually turns out the majority of technology users are women in their 40s, 50s and 60s. So if you wanted to know what the future looks like, those turn out to be the...
  2. How the London Riots have forced Gisella, 57, to Rebuild her Business. Can You Help?

    1
    Article by Julie Tempest When looters mindlessly wrecked a boutique during the London riots, they did more than destroy a few clothes – they laid waste to 20 years of fashion. Gisella Asante  57, and her daughter Jan established Gisella Boutique, a tailor-made clothing business in Peckham High Street, south east London, in 1991. They were told the terrible news that rioters had forced their way into the boutique when neighbours alerted them in the early hours of the morning. “The shop had been ransacked, with custom-made clothes stolen, including wedding dresses which were due to be collected by brides,” said Gisella. “All the boutique’s samples were taken leaving us with nothing – all of our best work created over the past 20 years went that night. “It...
  3. Helping Japan with Design Relief and Shelterbox

    Article by Julie Tempest  Julie Tempest talks to the businesswoman who has designs on your money to support ShelterBox and its vital work in disaster-hit Japan.  Like so many people in the UK, when Jacqui Jones got home from work on Friday 11 March she watched the heartbreaking coverage of the earthquake and tsunami which devastated Japan.  “I immediately wanted to do something to help but didn’t know where to begin. What had happened was so enormous and such a tragedy,” said Jacqui.  But then she saw a piece about ShelterBox  and the way they were preparing to do what they can to help those who had lost everything in the disaster.  Based in Cornwall, ShelterBox is an international disaster relief charity that delivers emergency shelter, warmth and dignity to...
  4. Coronation Street Fab for 50 Years

    Comment
    Article by Julie Tempest   As Coronation Street celebrates its 50th birthday, Julie Tempest looks back at her own highlights. Guests at the wedding of Albert Tatlock (front fourth from left) and AlicePickins in 1969. In true Coronation Street style, the wedding did not go ahead as the vicar was delayed and Alice got cold feet. For as long as I can remember as soon as the iconic theme tune came on the TV, the cry would go up, ‘it’s on!’ and the family would settle down to watch Coronation Street. From those early black and white days through to the full colour HD CGI packed 50th birthday episodes, I’ve been watching. We’re a similar age and have gone through a lot together as I’ve identified with the plights of different characters...
