His parents had asked him if he wanted to take part in a clinical trial for a drug that could improve some of the conditions associat...

How to Find the Right Attorney in Georgia for Your Injury Case

Choosing the right attorney for your particular personal injury case is never easy. Legal dramas and movies taught us – wrongly – that the best attorney in town could try everything from car accident insurance claims to criminal defense and from antitrust trials to wills and divorce. It is not the case. Great attorneys can handle a few different legal areas, correct, but the one you need is the one that can prove specialization, experience, and significant success rate in the particular area o...

Another day not at the office: will working from home be 2020's most radical change?

During lockdown millions started WFH – and most of us don’t want to go back. In just a few months the landscape of work, family and city life has altered dramatically - but are all the changes positive?There’s a man sitting at the first-floor window of the house that lies on the other side of my back fence. It’s early August, the weather is sweltering, and his window is wide open. He’s talking on a hands-free phone, laughing in that ingratiating manner that suggests a large payday is at stake. H...

I love Spider-Man – but would my son? How I learned a hard lesson about heroes

He’s my all-time favourite comic character. But do the real heroes still wear spandex?A decade ago I got married in a wedding outfit that, because of the shambles of assembling it, I can remember thread for thread. I had a new suit (dark grey, secret pockets) that I was shyly proud of; but with a couple of hours to go, I hung it in the wrong place in a public bathroom and the jacket was sprayed at close range by an auto-dispersing air freshener, the rich and tangy scent of which I could never sc...

6 Reasons Why You Should Consider Moving to Chicago

Being someone from a small town, I’ve always had those big city aspirations. There’s nothing wrong with living in a town where basically everyone knows everybody. About 8 years ago, we moved to a much bigger city which is right next to Atlanta. With my daughter graduating high school in less than three years, we’re thinking about moving again. We’re open to pretty much anywhere in America and the big city is what we’re eyeing. We have thought about just moving to Atlanta and other cities like ...

My dishevelled flat felt like a cage rather than a cocoon this summer. I finally decided to do it up

Before March, I spent every weekend at my partner’s tranquil apartment. When that became impossible, I had to turn my place from teenage doss house to adult work spaceI’ve never really been house-proud. While my peers have moved to larger and larger homes over the years, I’ve been happy in my dishevelled council flat in Tooting, south London. I don’t entertain at home and my flat is basically a safe place to leave my stuff, wash and go to sleep. Gardens, balconies, spare rooms and home offices a...

The Three Types of Letters to Write and When to Use Each

A few weeks after I had my first child, my Mom passed away. Learning to live in the world without her by my side has been one of the greatest challenges of my life.

No, opposites do not attract

Everyone seems to agree that opposites attract. Young and old people, happy and distressed couples, single folks and married partners – all apparently buy the classic adage about love. Relationship experts have written books based on this assumption. It's even been internalized by people who are on the hunt for a partner, with 86 percent of those looking for love saying they're seeking someone with opposite traits.The problem is that what's true of magnets is not at all true of romance.

Just after becoming a new father, the author and dramatist abandoned his family. Charlie Gilmour, his son, tries to solve the riddle of the man he never really knewWithin minutes of my arrival at my biological father’s hospital bed, he exploded. He just went off, like a paint grenade. Blood everywhere. It had been pooling inside him for a while, then something gave way, and out it all came. Part of me suspected I had been the cause.
