Misinformation

April 26th, 2017

Fake news is a type of hoax or deliberate spread of misinformation (false information), be it via the traditional print or broadcasting news media or via Internet-based social media. To qualify as fake news, a story has to be written and published with the intent to mislead in order to gain financially or politically. Sir William and The Duchess discuss with real journalists how the fake news is affecting real news.

Sleep

April 24th, 2017

Staying up late can be tough on the body, but sometimes it's unavoidable. Maybe you’re working late, or you might need to stay up for a one-time event like a family trip or a kid's sleepover or even adjust your sleep schedule to accommodate a new night shift assignment. Either way, there are tricks you can use to successfully become a night owl. Sir William and The Duchess drink a triple shot of espresso to get through this one.

Emojis

April 17th, 2017

Breaking News: Redhead emoji finally on the table after campaign for ginger equality. 

Emoji have become much more diverse in recent years. Instead of just the basic yellow cartoons, users can now select a variety of skin tones and hair colours, while many now have male and female options.

But there is still no redhead option. An online petition demanding ginger emoji, organized in Scotland, has garnered 20,000 signatures. Redheads make up less than 2 per cent of the world's population, but in Scotland, Wales and Ireland it is around 10 per cent.
