Trash talk from Balliol staff

first_imgIn an email sent round the JCR, President Alex Bartram explained why the rules were being clarified. He said, “Basically, the point isn’t that trashing is banned: it’s perfectly allowed. However, doing stuff that will damage college property and mean that some poor soul will have to spend an hour or two hours cleaning up after you when it’s not their job is bad, as you might expect. So far, the system’s worked very well, and all parties seem to be satisfied, but we’ll have to wait and see.” This year the University has asked all colleges to try and encourage students to trash friends on college property rather than on public streets. However, this has contributed to trashing debris being left around Balliol, leaving college staff having to clean up the mess. Balliol, as well as providing trashing equipment, has clarified its rules on trashing in an effort to encourage students not to break University regulations. The new guidance have been seen as a reaction to some students being fined for ‘illegal’ trashing. A Balliol student, who wished to remain anonymous, told Cherwell that some of her friends had been fined £80 each for throwing an allegedly small amount flour over a finished finalist. “My friends were grabbed by a security guard and actually treated quite badly, and then had to pay the fine (we all split it) in 48 hours or they faced rustication.” Balliol is to provide its students with water pistols in an effort to prevent mess from post-exam trashings. Other Balliol students have also responded positively to the changes. Alex Robertson, a first year, said “I’ve no real idea what the rules are but if it helps to keep people out of trouble then I guess it’s a good thing.” The student further commented, “We broke the rules and were punished very annoyingly, but very fairly.” Despite this she agreed with Balliol’s trashing rules, telling Cherwell, “The Balliol changes ensure that college doesn’t get messed up with confetti etc. and the porters don’t have to spend their time cleaning up, but that we can still have fun trashing.”center_img The new kit comes as part of an effort to combat the amount of cleaning required after more traditional trashings involving flour and confetti. Balliol Dean, Douglas Dupree, said, “We decided to bring together an informal committee of JCR members and College Officers to try and solve the problem of trashing in a way that allows people to celebrate post-Exams without making a mess that is difficult to clean up.” College staff and the JCR committee have arranged for a trashing kit to be available to students for rent. The kit includes four Supersoakers. Other trashing materials encouraged are: shaving foam, champagne and grass clippings and flower petals. Entz Rep Josh Jones said ‘I think the new rules are a good idea. Trashings have the potential to get out of hand and really ruin things so setting down what’s ok, but not banning it entirely, can only benefit everyone. Water is harmless and good fun, and so far I’ve seen a lot of people enjoying the supersoakers.”last_img read more

Bakers’ Fair hits Bolton

first_imgMore than 400 bakers and food-to-go retailers from all over the country travelled from as far afield as Devon to the Bakers’ Fair North West on October 14.The show, held at Bolton Arena in the shadow of Bolton Wanderers’ stadium, kicked off at 9am on Sunday morning. And the queue of visitors waiting outside for the doors to open already suggested it was going to be a successful day.The one-day event, sponsored by Norbake, brought together specialist bakery exhibitors, millers, ingredients manufacturers, machinery suppliers, wholesalers and drinks companies, attracting names such as Coca-Cola, Unifine Food & Bake, British Bakels, Aga Foodservice, Christian Salvesen and Rank Hovis.Many of the visitors who poured through the door were carrying large cake boxes or trays of baked goods. It was not a case of coals to Newcastle, though; these were entries into the prestigious Richemont Club of Great Britain annual competition, which was being judged live at the show.In all, some of the UK’s finest bakers and confectioners tested their skills across 19 categories, ranging from fresh creams to Christmas novelties. There were also newly introduced competition classes for young bakers, with an exceptionally high standard of entries, according to judges.The Richemont Club, which has a membership of top craft bakers and confectioners, also hosted a live cake-decorating demonstration and competition at the show, with five stunningly talented teams put through their paces for two-and-a-half hours in front of eager crowds.Around the show, visitors were also checking out the exhibitors’ wares, or even tasting the evidence. Greenhalgh’s, which exhibited alongside Eurobake, did a roaring trade in hot sausage rolls, with wholesale sales manager Garry Thew taking the opportunity to tell visitors about the wholesale side of the business.Jus-Rol also had tempting savouries on offer to an eager reception and both Puratos’ and Bakels’ samples proved more than a little popular. Coca-Cola also did its bit in keeping visitors’ strength up; it was offering free drinks through a promotion in British Baker. On its stand, a specially made video demonstrated a makeover at Sparks bakery and it also showcased automatically energy-efficient open chillers, which adjusted their temperature.Rob Ledwith, regional sales manager at distribution firm Christian Salvesen, another exhibitor at the show, explained that the company was building its name in the baking industry and was very impressed with the show as a means to do that.richemont crowdsRichard Lyons, UK manager of equipment supplier Koma, had just one complaint: his stand was too busy at times!

Two New States Added To New York’s COVID-19 Travel Advisory List

first_imgMGN Stock Image.ALBANY – Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Tuesday two additional states meet the metrics to qualify for New York State’s COVID-19 travel advisory.He says both Alaska and Montana were added. The advisory requires individuals who have traveled to New York from areas with significant community spread to quarantine for 14 days.“As we continue to pursue a phased, data driven reopening, the number of areas that remain on New York’s travel advisory is a stark reminder of the continued extent of the COVID-19 crisis throughout the nation,” Governor Cuomo said. “Our ability to protect our state and fight the virus begins with what we do here at home, and that’s why it’s so important that New Yorkers wear masks, socially distance and wash their hands, and why local governments need to enforce state guidance. Everyone stay safe and be New York Tough, and we will get through this together.”The quarantine applies to any person arriving from an area with a positive test rate higher than 10 per 100,000 residents over a 7-day rolling average or an area with a 10 percent or higher positivity rate over a 7-day rolling average. New York State’s infection rate has been below 1 percent for 25 straight days, with the number of patients in ICUs remained at 109, the lowest number since March 15.The full, updated travel advisory list is below:AlaskaAlabamaArkansasCaliforniaFloridaGeorgiaGuamHawaiiIowaIdahoIllinoisIndianaKansasKentuckyLouisianaMinnesotaMissouriMississippiMontanaNorth CarolinaNorth DakotaNebraskaNevadaOklahomaPuerto RicoSouth CarolinaSouth DakotaTennesseeTexasUtahVirginiaVirgin IslandsWisconsin Share:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window)last_img read more
