Both funny and heart-breaking. We are immediately grabbed by the unique voice of Elsie, a teenager with unspecified personal problems although this point is never laboured , and who reveals her acerbic family dynamics through frank observations. It leaves its emotional mark by offsetting the casual, frank tone of the narrator with the obvious severity of her episodes, the frictions of her family home and the sad sense of her isolation. It finishes with a gut-punch as her fascination with writing has equipped her with a language to articulate the distance between her and the rest of the world. A writer of huge confidence. A recently bereaved woman, alone on her farm, dealing with her grief. The story is also grounded in the reality of rural Wales.

Although this problem is called ‘teen dating violence’ our focus is not just on teenagers but also on tweens 11 and 12 year olds as well as young adults in their early twenties. This form of relationship violence is distinguished from people who are married or generally have greater experience in dating relationships. This disinction is important because people with relatively little dating experience will have greater difficulty knowing if some aspects of a relationship are “normal” or not.
Although physical or sexual abuse in a dating relationship is fairly easy to define and identify, other forms of abuse like emotional or psychological abuse are not as easy to explain because they depend a great deal on context. This nuanced aspect of dating abuse is one aspect of what makes it difficult to teach young people about what is – and what isn’t – healthy or acceptable.

Setting out on an eight-month program, Method worked closely with LUSH to develop a new digital brand strategy and design direction across multiple channels. This included the transformation of Lush. Here, customers can get access to exclusive, limited edition products made fresh daily and get a closer look at how those products are made.
Aware of how digital platforms influence and shape the customer buying journey, LUSH came to Method looking for a compelling way to tell their incredibly rich story, which is focused on the welfare of its suppliers and a genuine and transparent approach to business. Working closely with the team, we encouraged LUSH to take bold steps in their digital journey and challenge the standards in the cosmetics and digital industry by capturing a sensory experience online.
We then worked alongside the print team to implement the system and make sure Lush could own the process for future editions.
How should a big strong woman punish her small weak man? What form of discipline should be imposed upon him? And the truth is if he did step out of line, she would beat him to a pulp. Our culture seems to say that it is not ok fora much bigger stronger man to beat his smaller wife, but it is ok for a bigger stronger wife to beat up her smaller weaker husband. There is always something to justify her actions.
A sadistic big strong wife could one day decide to beat to death her small husband and get off on grounds of “self defense”.

Background[ edit ] Horrible Histories is based on the British children’s historical-comedy book series by Terry Deary , first published by Scholastic UK in and since expanded into a multimedia franchise. The books and subsequent spin-off materials are intended to pique young children’s interest in history via short, factually based but humorously told anecdotes highlighting aspects of the subject not usually covered in more traditional educational sources.
He finally agreed to the new project on the condition that it be explicitly “horrible, funny and true”. While disclaiming any active role in developing the subsequent series, he would eventually contribute to the writing as well as appearing in several small roles. Early concepts for bringing it to the screen involved framing or interpretive devices, including a ghostly train carrying children into the past, or a wizard storyteller to act as their guide.
They then introduced a comedy style relying on parodies of familiar modern media conventions as a means of making these historical details more immediately accessible. They also approved the adoption—insofar as was possible in a programme aimed at young children—of the core franchise precept of “history with the nasty bits left in”,  which frequently involved ” gross-out “-style bodily function humour and comic violence.
Instead, they sought to make the best use possible of the material. The net result was a show that immediately appealed to young children while also gaining the increasing respect—and viewership—of older audiences. List of Horrible Histories episodes The divisions by historical era or civilisation in the book series are carried over in the TV show, focusing on events in or directly affecting Great Britain and to a lesser extent the larger Western world.
The Inca and Aztec empires are also featured in later series.
