I recently wrote a piece for Devon Life on Sidmouth’s Crane & Kind – a destination shop with a difference. Have a read and discover a kinder way of trading.
I’ve recently been working with OPEN MINDS UK, an early intervention service that supports the emotional wellbeing and development of young people, helping to promote their new family activity book, Easy Tiger!
Easy Tiger! is a fun activity book for children, which helps them become more aware of their feelings and learn strategies to calm down and develop their own tools for managing tricky times.
Using the OPEN MINDS UK approach, Easy Tiger! uses mindfulness and positive psychology to help build stronger pathways in the brain, helping children to manage big feelings, which in turn develops their self-confidence and resilience – it’s a great book. Check it out here.
5G is a ground-breaking technology that is enabling innovative applications across a breadth of sectors from agriculture to security – there’s so much to report on, I’m really enjoying it.
I’m currently averaging two stories a day for 5Gradar, so I certainly won’t post them all here, but here are a few examples:
Finland’s Elisa demos remote-controlled 5G tractors – and more – at its new lab – read it here.
5G robots are battling the coronavirus in China – read it here.
Trump tries to curry favour with India over 5G – read it here.
In this month’s Exeter Life magazine I have an interview published with fellow Exeter mum, Emma Royle. Emma opens up to me about the horror of discovering her baby had cancer and how she’s running the London Marathon to raise funds for CLIC Sargent. It’s one of the most touching interviews I’ve done for a while – Emma is an inspiration in truest sense of the word and I hope the piece works to generate extra vital funds for CLIC Sargent, who help families when they need it most.
Exeter’s Hidden Gems workshop is a project that is transforming lives and I’m honoured to have written about it for the January 2020 issue of Exeter Life. Have a read here.
One of the features I have in the January 2020 edition of Exeter Life is a piece on the newly opened Exeter Craft Hub, where I discover the communal creative craft space the city has been missing. Read my article here.
I love a bit of tech writing and reviewing so it was a pleasure to do some more review work for T3.com. In this piece I highlight the best NAS drives (Network Attached Storage) on the market. These beauties do a lot more than store files like a traditional hard drive – they are a personal cloud service and media server. Take a look here.
In this month’s issue of Somerset Life magazine, which you can read online here, I meet four very different green businesses who are each making a positive environmental impact.
