      So many dads have been asking for somewhere to share their own businesses with other dads. This is a thread for just that. So if you run your own business, whatever it may be, graphic design, plumbing, web dev, personal training or whatever, share the details below.

      Feel free to add links to your websites.

      Any pyramid or ‘get rich quick’ schemes will be removed.

      Hi all,

      We are thinking to adventure into the world of coffee shops and we are asking for your help by completing the survey below or just dropping a comment.

      We see many families in coffee shops and we always wonder what are they missing, what do they like and what would they change.

      Many thanks.

      I’m in the marketing business for the online site HELENSBURGH-ONLINE. Helensburgh is a beautiful town, found in the Argyll and Bute region of Scotland. The site gives all the information related to Helensburgh, helping out tourists with accommodation, restaurants, local events etc.

      If you visit Scotland, make sure to visit the beautiful town Helensburgh, which is just 45mins from Glasgow. The place is close to the marvellous Loch Lomond of Scotland. Glen Coe and Ben navies are also close by. A great place to stay and explore a part of Scotland.

      Attitudes, Beliefs, and Online Behaviour Interpretation

      *Online survey participants needed for forensic research*

      Researchers at Swansea University, in collaboration with the Welsh Government, are conducting research on factors that contribute to differences in individuals’ interpretations of, attitudes towards, and outcome beliefs surrounding various digital and online interactions. This is the second stage of larger-scale research seeking to develop a novel proactive educational intervention that can be integrated into current policies to prevent sexual harassment.

      Some questions are of a sensitive nature and it may not be immediately clear why we are asking them. However, it is important for our research that you answer them fully and honestly. We will then tell you a bit more about why we asked you them at the end of the questionnaire.

      All participants will remain anonymous. Ethical approval has been given.

      Clicking on the link will present you first with an information sheet, followed by a request for consent. Only once consent is submitted will the survey commence.

      Participants: Aged 18+ only

      Time required: approx. 30 minutes

      Place: on your PC or mobile device
