THE VOICE, founded in 1982, is the only British national black weekly newspaper operating in the United Kingdom. It is owned by GV Media Group Limited, and is aimed at the British African-Caribbean community. The paper is based in London and is published every Thursday.

The Voice was founded in 1982 by Val McCalla, who, while working on a London local paper called the East End News in 1981, led a group of businessmen and journalists in a new and uncertain endeavour – the creation of a weekly newspaper to cater for the interests of British-born black people.

Until then the black press in Britain had always addressed a generation of immigrants, relaying news from their countries of origin in the Caribbean and Africa. Publications were named accordingly, with titles such as the West Indian Gazette, West Indian World, The Caribbean Times and West Africa. According to Beulah Ainley, who worked with McCalla on the East End News, “nobody thought the Voice would work”, however, as The Independent has noted: “The previous summer, Brixton had rioted, and black enterprises of all kinds were now being encouraged in the hope of preventing a repetition.

My A – Z Guide of everything you need to know about giving a great speech. Where to start; where to finish; and all the steps in between. After searching the market (and not finding) a good book that covered every aspect of what it takes to give a great speech, I decided to write one myself. This is my step by step guide on what it takes to prepare, write, and deliver a great speech. It’s short and very accessible (if I do say so myself). If you sign up to my mailing list, you’ll actually get a copy of the Ebook for free.

Most employers obsess over qualifications and ignore qualities, put experience above potential and have a very narrow range of jobs options on offer. A career in the RAF is about discovering your natural talent and working out together what makes you valuable, productive and happy. From the chefs to the jet pilots they send out on full stomachs, the RAF is full of ordinary folks, just like you, who came to us, often with nothing more than a desire to lead a less ordinary existence.

Cisco is the worldwide leader in IT that helps companies seize the opportunities of tomorrow by proving that amazing things can happen when you connect the previously unconnected.
At Cisco customers come first and an integral part of our DNA is creating long-lasting customer partnerships and working with them to identify their needs and provide solutions that support their success.

The concept of solutions being driven to address specific customer challenges has been with Cisco since its inception. Husband and wife Len Bosack and Sandy Lerner, both working for Stanford University, wanted to email each other from their respective offices located in different buildings but were unable to due to technological shortcomings. A technology had to be invented to deal with disparate local area protocols; and as a result of solving their challenge – the multi-protocol router was born.

Since then Cisco has shaped the future of the Internet by creating unprecedented value and opportunity for our customers, employees, investors and ecosystem partners and has become the worldwide leader in networking – transforming how people connect, communicate and collaborate

As a leading energy company and Britain’s largest generator of low-carbon electricity, we’re asking some big questions about the future of energy in the UK. But more importantly, we’re investing in the ambitious school leavers and graduates who’ll help to answer them.
In as little as five years, the UK will be facing a very real ‘energy gap’, and needs a diverse energy mix to fill it. It calls for us to step up to the challenge. And to do that, we need the very best graduates to join our team of 20,000 experts already tackling one of the biggest challenges facing society today.

Can we lower carbon, but increase the energy supply?

To create a future of stable, low carbon energy, we need ideas, progress and action. We’ve already integrated with British Energy. And we’re aiming to have the first new nuclear power station commercially operational in 2018, in response to the huge shift in UK power generation.
We’ve set other ambitious targets too. We’ve one of the biggest environmental initiative packages of any British company. We’ve pledged to cut the carbon intensity of the emissions from our electricity generation by 60% by 2020, and invest hugely in low-carbon energy production. We’re also championing sustainability through our sponsorship with the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games as the first sustainability partner.

We’re confident of being directly involved with the major developments of the industry for years to come. Our Nuclear and Networks Engineering graduate schemes are designed to ensure that you are too.

Can we revolutionise our nation’s energy?

EDF Energy produces one-fifth of the nation’s electricity from nuclear, coal and gas power stations, combined heat and power plants and wind farms. EDF Energy’s safe and secure operation of its eight existing nuclear power stations at sites across the country makes it the UK’s largest generator of low carbon electricity. The company provides power to a quarter of the UK’s population via its electricity distribution networks and supplies gas and electricity to more than 5.5 million business and residential customers. This means we’ve a stake in almost every link of the energy chain. Revolutionising our nation’s energy is almost certainly within our grasp.
To help us take that next step, we now have opportunities for a number of graduates and 12-month industrial placements in Nuclear Science and Engineering, Supply Chain, Nuclear Science and Engineering Scheme, Electrical Engineering and Ergonomics.

The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) project is an international effort to build the world’s largest radio telescope, led by the SKA Organisation from Jodrell Bank Observatory in the UK. The SKA will conduct transformational science to improve our understanding of the Universe and the laws of fundamental physics, monitoring the sky in unprecedented detail and mapping it hundreds of times faster than any current facility.

The SKA is not a single telescope, but a collection of telescopes or instruments, called an array, to be spread over long distances. The SKA is to be constructed in two phases: Phase 1 (called SKA1) in South Africa and Australia; Phase 2 (called SKA2) expanding into other African countries, with the Australian component also being expanded.

Already supported by 11 member countries – Australia, Canada, China, Germany, India, Italy, New Zealand, South Africa, Sweden, The Netherlands and the United Kingdom – the Organisation has brought together some of world’s finest scientists, engineers and policy makers and more than 100 companies and research institutions across 20 countries in the design and development of the telescope. Construction of the SKA is set to start in 2018, with early science observations in 2020.
