first_imgThe Faculty of History has backed down from changes to exam regulations which would have moved forward thesis deadlines, after students expressed their anger at the attempt to pass the changes in the middle of the exam season.The faculty wished to change the deadlines for submission of thesis titles and synopses, claiming that the current set-up “does not leave enough time for the FHS [Final Honour School] Board of Examiners to find markers with the appropriate expertise”.Students overwhelmingly rejected the proposed changes, while also expressing their anger at the faculty for giving them only two days to respond “in a time of immense pressure”. History freshers are currently engaged in prelims and second-years in the middle of a ten-day coursework examination.An anonymous Oxfess had urged first and second year historians to object to the proposed changes. It said: “What this email is essentially asking you to do, on incredibly (conveniently) short notice, is to consent to having less time to come up with your thesis proposal, and to make it more difficult to change your thesis proposal once you have come up with it.“It doesn’t benefit any of us to consent to this last-minute and disorganised change, and the only thing that’s good about it is that the history faculty requires our consent in the first place. If they want to institute faculty wide changes they need to give us due notice and give us due time to reply, not simply try and impose them upon us in a time of immense pressure anyway.”The Faculty of History’s undergraduate officer, Andrea Hopkins, told students in an email: “Many thanks to those of you who responded to the consultation in spite of the awkward timing.  I do apologise for bothering you during your exams, but the deadline for getting exam reg changes gazetted is this Friday, so I had to do it.“However, there was an overwhelming majority who did not consent to the proposed changes, so we will not be going ahead with them.”last_img read more

first_imgGreggs, the BB75 leading bakery chain, has launched its take on a local bakery a new third-style retail format for the company.The unit, called Greggs The Bakery, has opened just doors down from the company’s very first shop in Gosforth, Newcastle, which opened in 1951, and features a different product mix from the standard Greggs stores and Greggs Moment coffee shops.In an exclusive interview last year with Greggs’ chief executive Ken McMeikan, British Baker revealed that the retailer was looking at a third shop format.The new store has 75 new products on offer, including chocolate and orange scones, cheesecake and giant cupcakes and has a more ’artisan’-styling for the shop, including blackboards, wicker and improved displays.Speaking at the opening, McMeikan said: “We are excited to launch our latest concept shop that showcases Greggs’ bakery credentials, and gives customers a traditional bakery shopping experience. Fittingly, we have chosen a location close to the site of first-ever Greggs shop, and we hope our customers love it.”The shop will also sell a new ’made to order’ sandwich and pizza range, as well as savouries, sandwiches and hot drinks from the existing Greggs range.Greggs said the concept bakery shop was developed after customer research highlighted a desire for a different style of bakery shop which gives customers “a more traditional bakers’ shop experience”.Meanwhile, the circa 1,600-strong high street bakery and café operator, has opened its first Moment coffee shop in the south of England, in Stevenage. The group opened the third Moment site in the Hertfordshire town’s Queensway scheme.And the company is also utilising the power of social media to look into the possibility of introducing a loyalty scheme. The group has issued an appeal for information on its Facebook page, which has in the region of 477,000 followers. At the moment it is thought Greggs is looking at a card-based system similar to those used in Tesco, Costa and Caffè Nero.last_img read more

first_imgTech giant Apple is currently in talks with streaming service TIDAL to acquire the platform and use it to bolster their own service, Apple Music, according to sources close to the matter. Although negotiations are still underway, and confirmation and terms of the deal are still unconfirmed, Apple’s streaming efforts would surely stand to benefit from TIDAL’s exclusive relationships with various high-profile artists like Kanye West and Madonna. The issue of artist royalties from streaming has become more and more pertinent in recent years as the record industry has shifted away from purchased digital and physical units and toward a more streaming-based model. With declining record sales, artists now have to make the majority of their money from touring, and many feel that this may have an overall negative effect on the quality and quantity of new music that new artists are able to bring to fruition. Hip Hop mogul Jay Z purchased TIDAL in March of 2015 for $56 million in an attempt to route a larger portion of the proceeds from music streaming to the artists rather than large corporations.As Jay Z said in an interview with Billboard following the purchase, “For someone like me, I can go on tour, but what about the people working on the record, the content creators and not just the artists? If they’re not being compensated properly, then I think we’ll lose some writers and producers and people like that who depend on fair trade. Some would probably have to take another job, and I think we’ll lose some great writers in the process.” Jay sold equity stakes in the company to nearly twenty other artists, marketing the endeavor as the first artist-owned streaming service and offering perks like exclusive releases for paying subscribers. The infographic below, via Information Is Beautiful, which shows the disparities between artist payouts for streaming between the various competing services, illustrates Hov’s noble intentions in purchasing TIDAL:However, Jay’s big plans for TIDAL have not gone as well as expected. A year after the purchase, TIDAL’s subscription numbers are well below expectations, still trailing Apple and Spotify‘s services by considerable margins, leading to a smaller net payout for artists via TIDAL despite their higher per-stream rates. Furthermore, a handful of artists have brought legal action against the company for problems with payment. Earlier this year, John Emanuele from the band The American Dollar filed a class-action suit claiming that TIDAL has yet to compensate the band for any of the royalty payments accrued from the streaming of the band’s 116 copyrighted songs on the platform. This has prompted Jay Z and Tidal to mount a concurrent suit against the company that sold them the service last year, saying that the user numbers they presented were fraudulent.Despite publicly remaining behind his venture, Jay Z has been shopping the company around to big tech companies for months, having reportedly taken meetings with Facebook and Samsung as well. While it is unclear how Apple would incorporate TIDAL’s current structure into their own efforts, if Apple does end up purchasing the company, the already-competitive streaming industry will become an even smaller club, consolidating more power with fewer large corporations and making it harder and harder for artists to change the status quo, as Jay and his partners originally sought to do with TIDAL.last_img read more

first_img One of the Mexican men captured might be connected to the Sinaloa Cartel, one of the largest drug organizations in Mexico, the Ministry said in a statement. Ecuador, traditionally considered a transit country for drugs headed towards the United States and Europe, confiscated about 42 tons of drugs, the majority of which was cocaine, in 2012, compared to 26 tons in 2011, and 18 tons in 2010. By Dialogo May 09, 2013 The vessel sailed through Ecuadorean waters and it could not be reached by the country’s National Navy units, according to the Ministry. Three crew members who identified themselves as Mexican nationals were on board, and set the ship on fire with the drugs on board after being discovered. The seizure might be related to a case of a Mexican-flagged ship that was carrying four tons of cocaine, and which was intercepted by the U.S. Coast Guard in international waters near Mexico, according to information given by Ecuador to the DEA. center_img The operation, called ‘Aluvión,’ was carried out in the provinces of Guayas and El Oro – on the Peruvian border – and also produced the arrest of five Ecuadorean nationals and the seizure of $277,000, stated the Ministry of Interior. After operation ‘Aluvión’, which included the seizure of the Mexican vessel with four tons of cocaine, Ecuadorean Minister of Interior José Serrano told the press that his country has seized 15 tons of drugs so far in 2013. On May 7, Ecuadorean authorities seized 457 kg of cocaine, which possibly belonged to the Sinaloa Cartel, during an operation where they arrested four Mexican nationals. last_img read more
