Dr Who tickets go on sale in the US today (August 1st)

Well this is the moment all us have been waiting for, some thought it was the SDG OWG final text, others the World Cup, still others the Guardians of the Galaxy film (which by the way is good and Karen Gillian was amazing!!) no it is the first outing of Peter Capaldi as Dr Who. Tickets sold by fandango. It is being screened at 1600 cinemas around the world.
We understand it will be a darker doctor and also an older doctor so the romance side will probably not be there unless they bring River Song back. The relaunch of Doctor Who with Christopher Eccleston in 2005 as the Doctor and Billie Piper as Rose was perfect. 
I always will wish he would have done a second series but it was not to be. David Tennant took over and what an amazing Doctor he turned out to be and what a perfect love story with Rose. 
It took a while for us to love Matt Smith but his energy and his dedication to the role he was the Doctor won us over. We can forgive the last episode for the 50th anniversary which was just perfect.

And now Peter Capaldi, a great actor will bring his vision to the role. How long he will stay? We don't know, but on the 25th of August Ill be at a cinema in Cary North Carolina to watch his first episode. Who would have every thought I would be able to say that for a 50 year old TV series which is so British. It looks like many in Wake Zone Cafe will also be going too. Peter we wish you a long and successful time as Dr Who - let the show begin.
PS The Doctor Who World Tour with Peter and Jenna will be in New York the 14th of August.

Guest Blog Mike Barry: 5 things we learnt on Marks and Spencer Plan A journey over last 12 months

Guest Blog by Mike Barry:  Director of Sustainable Business (Plan A) at Marks and Spencer

It’s that time of year, publication of our annual sustainability (Plan A) report. After the harum scarum dash to gather, collate, assure, sign-off and publish a wealth of data we can breathe (for a moment!) and reflect on what it all means.
Here are some quick insights into what we’ve learnt at M&S in the last 12 months on our Plan A journey.
1. Succession – Nine years is a long time in the world of sustainable business. How many corporate plans have come and gone since we launched Plan A in 2007? Too many! The continuity offered by having a single multi-year plan has been incredibly important. It’s allowed us to take long term decisions in a very short term turbulent retail marketplace. It’s allowed us to build the skills and capabilities in our business units to integrate Plan A into their ways of working. It’s allowed us to pick our battles, knowing that occasionally we’ve just got to let a …

Bokova out? Georgieva in for next UN Secretary General

The rumors that have been circulating for the last month have now proven to be true. The Bulgarian government has withdrawn support from Irina Bokova as their candidate for UN Secretary General and replaced her with Kristalina Georgieva, the European commissioner for budget and human resources.
There is some evidence that the right of center parties in European capitals have been behind this with some articles appearing in the last few weeks against Bokova. The Guardian reported on the 26th: “one of her (Kristalina’s) staff members was hacked and emails purporting to be from one of her top aides were sent out to the rest of her office, instructing them to attack Bokova”There is no question that Kristalina has the cv and record to be a very good UN Secretary General. She is a strong supporter of sustainable development issues she will pick up the SDGs and climate agendas with ease. She is dynamic and very personable and was very active around last week’s UN General Assembly High Level se…
