top10 blogs 300x300 Top of the posts: Anti Bullying week, Homeland, Di Matteo and Sir Attenborough This week was Anti-bullying week and to raise awareness of this issue, Lauren Seager-Smith from the Anti-Bullying Alliance (ABA) wrote a piece that exposes a research and case studies that show how much can bullying affect children’s life performance as they are scared of being talented and brilliant.

As followers of the American TV show Homeland wait anxiously for the next episode, Charles Reynolds keeps its track and reviews the latest episode ‘The Clearing’, saying that it cranked up the tension a couple more notches.

Following more TV programmes, the Blog’s Editor Neela Debnath reviewed the Misfits – Series 4, Episode 4 and welcomes the festive season with ‘Doctor Who’ Christmas Special, revealing the short trailer introduced by Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman, who will be playing the new companion.

Last Wednesday Chelsea’s fans woke up to the news that the Club’s manager Roberto Di Matteo was sacked on the previous night after the Blues’ defeat to Juventus. Amid controversy on its Russian owner Roman Abramovich, Varun Mathure justifies the decision, suggesting that Di Matteo wasn’t a big name and that perhaps the victories over Barcelona and Bayern Munich ‘were achieved through a healthy dose of good luck and opportunism’.

Looking into arts, science and technology Peter Cooper interviews Sir David Attenborough on his new project The Penguin King 3D, a dramatic tale of the incredible life lead by a male King Penguin on the island of South Georgia. Attenborough tells him what’s behind the project, how special are penguins and what does 3D bring to the wildlife documentary.
