Blues Get Back on Track at Hull

Chelsea recovered from their defeat to Liverpool at the weekend by dispatching a below par Hull side this evening 3-0. There were some shaky moments - most notably when Daniel Cousin hit the post in the first half - but Luiz Felipe Scolari can be happy with his side’s response to the first significant setback of his short reign.

Library training session

If anyone wants to learn about internet-based research I'm going to be taught by Sarah Root in the library next Monday or Tuesday afternoon. She's going to cover online searching techniques, locating and using online journal resources, online databases, subject gateways etc.

She can do either Monday or Tuesday, I was thinking I'd arrange it for about 3.15 after History, so if anyone wants to come along please respond to this and indicate if you have a preference for either day.


Midweek football

Can I just point out how nice it is to see nine Premier League games being played simultaneously midweek? It's something we haven't seen for a very long time due to the UEFA Cup, Champions League and hectic schedule. It's nice to be able to enjoy a very rare occurence like this! If only Newcastle didn't play last night and it'd be a full house!

 Match of the Day at 10:45, BBC One. :)

Student grants cut after government 'overspending'

Grants for university students are having to be cut by the government from next year, after they had reportedly made an overspending blunder.

Although poorer students are unlikely to be effected, the Department for Innovation, Universities and Skills (DIUS) said they found a financial deficit of £200m.

Despite the DIUS improving student financial grants this year, according to BBC News the upper limit to receive a student grant will be lowered from £60,000 to £50,020 next year.
