Freshers Week Meal

First of all a big thanks to Tim and Anastasia for the fantastic meal last night. It really gave us all a chance to get to know each other a little better and a chance to enjoy some alcohol we didn't have to pay for!!!

Using my fantastic vuvox skills, taught to me by Ian last year (you first years will no doubt get the vuvox lecture in due course!) I have put together a rough slide of all the photos from last night. You can view it here:


4x4 Drama

Since we have been encouraged to post our achievments I thought I'd follow suit.

It wasn't a front page story and it wasn't a spectacularly edited video or audio piece. However it IS a byline and at the time it WAS breaking news.

I was even at the top of Google's local news list for about 5 minutes! :) is the link:

The financial crisis hits the Centre for Journalism

The financial crisis has undoubtedly been at the forefront of everyone's mind recently but it has finally reached fever pitch.

We've looked at it nationally; city workers waving tenners instead of fifties at the G20 protesters, and we've looked locally; spending hours dwelling on the fate of Gillingham and Chatham highstreets in this devastating time. But has anyone looked even closer to home?

What's the worst that could happen?

Guns 'n' Roses actually releasing their long-awaited album Chinese Democracy, perhaps?!

Rumour has it that the well-known Dr Pepper Snapple Group Inc. made a promise of a free Dr Pepper to everyone in America if the new album was released before the end of 2008. Unfortunately when they said everyone, they didn't mean everyone; ex-band members Slash and Bucket head have been excluded from this once in a lifetime offer, not that they will be losing any sleep over it I imagine!
