Sign-up sheets confiscated at Freshers’ Fair

first_imgStewards at this year’s Freshers’ Fair temporarily removed the sign-up sheets of several societies whose representatives had momentarily left their stalls, citing concern for data protection and causing widespread bemusement.In an email sent to all student stall-holders in advance of the event, OUSU had issued a warning not to leave any papers containing names or email addresses where they could be accessed by third parties. OUSU also instructed stewards to be vigilant in limiting access to Exam Schools for student stallholders without lanyards.Consequently, stalls had to be deserted at points throughout the day, so that students could switch shifts and exchange lanyards. OUSU apparently did not anticipate that this would lead to sign-up sheets being left unattended on stalls.  The Oxford Yoga Society and Oxford Indian Dance society were among those who temporarily lost their sign-up sheets. A spokesman from the Oxford Yoga Society was characteristically even-tempered about the tightening of security regulations, saying, “It’s no big deal. It’s a sign of the times. We got the names back quite quickly at least.”OUSU President Tom Rutland, commented, “We looked after some sign-up sheets that had been left lying around unattended during the fair, so as to ensure that people’s names and details weren’t used for any purposes other than the societies they had signed up for. As soon as stallholders who’d left sheets returned to their stalls, they would have found a card telling them where they could pick up the sheets they’d left.“We’ve got an obligation to look after students and their personal information, and by collecting them instead of leaving them lying around, we probably also helped to ensure they weren’t lost!”Some have criticised OUSU’s strident approach, suggesting that for the most part people’s names and addresses are in the public domain. It has been pointed out that all colleges publish lists of the names of incoming students, and that amongst Oxford students someone’s name and college furnishes enough information to work out their email address.Eleanor Franzen, a veteran stallholder with four years of experience, said, “If I really wanted to find victims to mail spam to, I probably wouldn’t stalk the corridors of Exam Schools on the lookout for abandoned stalls and then spend ages deciphering the overexcited scrawl common to all freshers. I’d probably just get their contact details off the internet. But then, maybe I’m missing out on all the fun.”  This is not the first time OUSU’s enthusiasm for bureaucracy has raised eyebrows. At the 2009 Freshers’ air, satirical leaflets distributed by student publication ‘The Oxymoron’ were confiscated and banned, amid fears that freshers would not understand the irony.last_img read more

Granting a golden opportunity?

first_imgThere are many times when a business may need money and advice and it’s estimated there are around £5 billion-worth of support grants and programmes you could tap into.However, each programme will have its own strict terms and conditions that apply to all applicants. These govern, for example, the use of the monies, what happens if the business stops trading and, if repayments are due, when they are to be paid. Expect demands for immediate repayment if the rules aren’t followed and you need to know that government grants are normally for projects that are at planning stage only.You may only get part of the money you need, as the organisation behind the assistance expects you to be able to match its commitment with your own money. The proportion you get will vary according to the funding programme.SourcesGrants and assistance programmes are made available by the government through the various departments, the European Union, various Regional Development Agencies throughout the UK, local authorities, local development agencies, Business Links, Chambers of Commerce and County Enterprise Boards. Some funding is also distributed through colleges and the Learning and Skills Council.There are 13 different types of grant and help available, inclu-ding cash, repayable grants, consultancy, subsidies, technology help and advice and information. The grants are channelled in various ways: some encourage investment in innovation, research and development and some are there to specifically help small businesses.Others help with training and skills through the Learning and Skills Council as well as the Business Links. If you want to employ New Deal candidates or training of young people, you may be able to get help from Jobcentre Plus.Age and inexperience needn’t be a barrier. Indeed, assistance and funds are available from The Prince’s Trust to those who may be unemployed, or employed in a part-time or low-paid job, are aged 18-30 and have a business idea.Grants are meant to stimulate business activity and this is the reason why a business based in an ’assisted area’ may be able to get extra grants if they can help with regional development, urban regeneration or an improvement in prospects for local employment.Find the grantsYou can find out much of the information online for nothing. However, some information is chargeable.Through the Business Links website, you can search through the Grants and Support Directory for nothing. There are several thousand national and local programmes available, at all levels, depending on what you want, where you are and so on.But there are also private sector agencies that provide information on available grants and can give assistance in applying for them. However, it is worthwhile searching online and comparing a few different agencies. Many of them charge a fee or subscription, but remember, none of them can guarantee success in getting funding for you.To find them, just go online and search for “support and grants”.The application processAssuming you have gone through the process of finding the grant you want to apply for, and making sure you qualify, you will want to make your proposal. But before you do, it might be worth making personal contact with the provider – you might pick up some tips. Remembering that you may have to put some of your own money up, you need to be able to show the specific purpose for the grant. Don’t start work before you’ve been given the green light on funding, as you’ll exclude yourself if you do. Also, heed any deadlines.If you need any advice when preparing your proposal, consider speaking to an adviser at a Business Link.You will have to provide a detailed description of the reason for the application, give an explanation of the benefits of the project, detail the plan and provide full financial data, provide details of your own experience and that of your (senior) colleagues, complete the application form and submit a business plan. The decision is not always quick and could take many months.Dealing with rejectionMany fail with their application the first time around. Asking the organisation concerned why you’ve been rejected will help you when you re-apply.Typically, the reasons why applications are turned down include:? the failure to prove the need for the money? providing information that is out of date? a failure to show that own funds are available? submitting a plan that is poorly written and produced? failure to show how the research you have done will turn into concrete working business? quoting any facts that are fanciful or unbacked? failure to show the importance of receiving funding; and that the application has been made to the wrong organisation.If you cannot get a grant, you may have to resort to other forms of finance, such as the traditional bank loan. Alternatively, you may want to consider selling shares in your business.Grant eligibilitySeveral points count towards eligi- bility for grants:? Location. Through regional economic variations, social and financial needs, businesses in some parts of the UK get extra grants. Further, to attract businesses or maintain employment in the local economy, some local authorities offer their own grants.? Size of business. The size of your business, in terms of either number of employees or turnover, may have a bearing on eligibility. A lot of grants are deliberately limited to small or medium- sized enterprises.? Type of industry. It shouldn’t be a surprise to know that government and local authorities wish to encourage certain industry sectors, while they feel others do not need any assistance. Also, the European Commission places limits and checks on the help that some sectors receive.? Purpose. Grants are invariably awarded for a specific purpose, such as buying plant and equipment, improving work areas or developing export markets. Other uses will be barred. nlast_img read more

Saint Mary’s Bronte performance

first_imgEmily Bronte’s “Wuthering Heights” graced the stage at O’Laughlin Auditorium at Saint Mary’s Monday night with a performance by the Aquila Theatre company. Six actors, united by Aquila’s mission to make classical works accessible to everyone through performance arts, brought the classic novel to life under the direction of Desiree Sanchez.“It was a marvelous performance,” director of special events Richard Baxter said. “Very well put together, very clear. You know what I loved most of all? No mics.”One of the production’s lead actors, Kali Hughes (Cathy Earnshaw), said although the show is demanding, it is gratifying to perform.“It’s a really tough show,” Hughes said. “It’s kind of shocked me. I’ve got to stay fit and healthy. You can’t have a day off, but it’s immensely enjoyable as well.”Dale Mathurin (Heathcliffe), who is just older than most members of the Saint Mary’s audience, said “Heights” has been on the road for three weeks and the central role can be taxing for such a fresh actor.“It’s a very hectic show,” Mathurin said. “I’m fresh out of drama school. This is my first time abroad. There are a lot of days in the van getting to different venues.”Mathurin said she and Hughes lived in London, England prior to touring “Heights.”“I worked for the company last year,” Hughes said. “I knew they were doing ‘Wuthering Heights,’ and I begged for the role. I love ‘Wuthering Heights,’ and I think every teenage girl holds this book close to their hearts.”Mathurin happened upon the role after a chance audition, he said.“I’m a baby, literary,” Mathurin said. “It’s funny. I’m in my third year of drama school, and as I’m ready to leave school, my agent posted this audition to me. I turned up, and I got a recall, went to the second audition. What kept me here was the book and the cast, the environment and the story.”Hughes said bringing Bronte’s world to life has been a challenge.“It has been a hard book to adapt,” Hughes said. “You’ll notice we have only really have done the first half of the book. Cathy dies in the first half of the book, and I think part of that has to do with having a young Heathcliff. It’s just a more truthful story.“As brilliant as the book is, it really does peak in the middle, it’s really exciting, this bit where we ended. A novel is different. On the stage you need to be gripped. Despite the absolute mess they’ve gotten themselves into. If we were to put the whole thing onstage, when [the characters] fail, we want to see more, do we care? It’s like a book with lots of little ends. It kind of leeches the drama.”Hughes said part of the challenge in adapting “Wuthering Heights,” is the complexity of Cathy’s character.“I actually find Cathy to be an energy vacuum,” Hughes said. “She walks into a room and sucks the energy out of everything, like a vortex. But she’s also very human, and she makes a mistake. I think she’s just this fantastically flawed individual. She’s trying to claw back her love for Heathcliff.”Mathurin said Heathcliff’s mysterious side makes the role appealing.“What draws me the most is his mystery,” he said. “I find him to be very enigmatic to play with in the scenes that he’s in,” Mathurin said. “The mystery of the character’s what drew me. I don’t think at this point in time I want to be anyone else but Heathcliff.”Tags: Aquila Theatre Company, Bronte, Wuthering Heightslast_img read more

Arizona State names true freshman starting QB with a true freshman backup

first_imgFast forward four years and Daniels has earned Edwards’ trust, though the veteran coach was quick to point out Monday that Daniels has some experienced players around him on offense.”It’s one of those deals, you start a freshman quarterback and you try and anticipate what’s going to happen,” Edwards said. “He’s not the savior. He’s a freshman quarterback like all freshmen are. He’s going to do a lot of good things, and he’s going to make some errors. That’s part of it.”Although Daniels was a four-star recruit who had offers from a mix of strong Power Five programs, the Republic notes that some have questioned whether his 6-foot-3, 175-pound frame can hold up in the college game. Alabama linebacker Joshua McMillon (knee) likely lost for season, report says Offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Rob Likens, however, compares his newly named starter’s build to Jared Goff’s (Likens coached Goff at Cal). More important, Likens says, is what Daniels brings to the field.”He doesn’t put the ball in jeopardy and he sees the field are the two main things,” Likens said. “For his age and hasn’t had a lot of experience in college except for spring practice, his ability to make quick decisions with the speed that is going on around him and his ability to adjust from the high school speed to the college speed was nothing I’ve ever seen before.”Arizona, picked to finish behind Pac-12 favorite Utah and USC, alongside UCLA in the South, opens the season Aug. 29 against Kent State. Herm Edwards’ Arizona State football team is picked to finish third in the Pac-12 South in 2019, and if the Sun Devils are going to do that — or better — then they’ll likely do it with a true freshman at quarterback.Edwards on Monday named Jayden Daniels the starter, making him the first true freshman to start at quarterback at Arizona State, according to the Arizona Republic. His backup will be another true freshman: Joey Yellen. “It says a lot about him and his ability right now to do some things we feel real good about,” Edwards said of Daniels. “That’s how we’re going to roll.”It’s how Daniels has rolled since he was a freshman at Cajon High School in San Bernardino, California, and was named starting varsity QB.

Groves set to fight for European title

first_imgGeorge Groves is set to fight for the European super-middleweight title recently vacated his arch-rival and fellow West Londoner James DeGale.Groves, the Commonwealth champion, will take on the Italy-based Mohamed Ali Ndiaye, who was due to face DeGale before the Harlesden man opted to give up the belt.Promoter Frank Warren has won the purse bids to stage the fight and is expected to announce a date and venue on Monday, with Groves set to feature on a show that will also include world champions Ricky Burns and Nathan Cleverly.Finchley heavyweight Dereck Chisora, currently banned following an infamous brawl with David Haye, is also likely to appear on the bill if his reapplication for a British Boxing Board of Control license is successful.Groves, 24, was last in action in December, when he extended his unbeaten record by comprehensively beating former world champion Glen Johnson on points at the ExCel Arena.The 33-year-old Ndiaye, who was born in Senegal, has lost only one of his 23 professional fights.See also:Dominant Groves easily sees off JohnsonGeorge Groves v Glen Johnson post-fight press conferenceHaye hails Groves after ‘amazing display’ against JohnsonGroves tipped to win world title in 2013Groves v Johnson in picturesDeGale opts to give up European titleGroves to fight for title at Wembley ArenaGroves lining up world title challengeTrio in action on Groves’ Wembley bill Groves warned ahead of title 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more
