Christmas, culture, Featured, Music
Christmas is a time of joy, with magic lights hanging all over the city and people giving gifts to each other. But trust us, none of this would make any sense without a good soundtrack. From Bing Crosby's White Christmas, a classic of the season, to Sia's newest holiday album, Everyday is Christmas, we went out in the cold to explore the sound of Christmas.

Being a student in London is tough. Sure there’s the nightlife, restaurants, galleries and more - but how are you supposed to enjoy any of it when you’ve got no money?

Are sex robots a threat to real intimacy, or nothing more than a sophisticated vibrator? Priced at around £4,000, the thought of sex-bots becoming a reality may seem far-fetched. However, problems may arise if the technology becomes mainstream and prices are lowered. Will the practice of human-robot sex be normalised? Leading tech company Realbotix, produces life-like dolls that can be interacted with via an app. Their slogan 'Be the first to never be lonely again', implies much more than just a physical relationship. Kathleen Richardson, founder of Campaign Against Sex Robots said at the 2017 Web Summit, that the technology is 'an outcome of egocentric misogyny'. But what do young Londoner's think?
