Pie-demonium at Jesus College

first_imgJesus College has been gripped by a mania of pie-throwing following the announcement of the official start of ‘Pie Week’ by JCR Social Secretary Chris Smith. Suspense has been high since the appearance of an enigmatically-worded event on the termly Jesus College Social Calendar.The ‘Pie Week’ rules were outlined by Smith in an email sent to the JCR. Participants have to sign a register before being allowed to purchase the pies from the ‘Official Pie Stand’. Pies can only be thrown at those, and by those, who sign the register.Other rules stated, “If one suspects they are about to be Pie-d they must shout “PIE” at the supposed Pie-er. If the accusation is true and the accused be guilty and has a Pie in hand, the failed Pie-er must self pie to the face. On the second occasion with the same hypothetical Pie-ee and failed Pie-er, the self-pie can be to the crotch (at the Pie-ee’s discretion). Pie-ing is an ancient sport of stealth and this rule ensures only Pie’s (sic) of style are successful; punishing the weak (at pieing).”The pies cost 50p and consist of tin-foil trays filled with whipped cream. All money raised goes to charity. Chris Smith stated in the email, “This does mean with each pie you launch you are slowly becoming a better person.”The event has not been uncontroversial. Chris Smith commented, “We were quickly banned from pieing in hall after a student’s aerial pie coated much of a table.”Emilia Carslaw, a second year Classicist, told Cherwell, “it’s been an ex-cream-ly pie-olent few days in Jesus, full of pie-rannical pie-racy. We have all been living in fear, terri-pie-d of the moment the next attack will occur.”All money raised goes to the charity Schistosomiasis Control Iniative (SCI).last_img read more

Satisfied? NBC Would Like to Bring Hamilton to the Screen

first_imgWhat comes next for Hamilton? Well, NBC would like to do a screen adaptation of the Broadway megahit. “I think sure, we’d love to be able to film Hamilton in some capacity but I think it would be years before they even look at a movie or any kind of film version of that show,” said NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt, who also invested in the tuner (lucky man!).”It’s a thrilling theatrical experience,” E! News reports Greenblatt as going on to say. “I think it’d be a thrilling movie or television experience, and yeah, I’d love to. I think it’s unrealistic for a decade or so, but check back with me then.” In the meantime, we’ll have to focus on the network honcho’s most recent announcement, that Hairspray will be its December 2016 live telecast.As if you didn’t know already, Hamilton is playing at the Richard Rodgers Theatre. Directed by Thomas Kail and featuring a book, music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Hamilton is inspired by the book Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow. The new musical follows the scrappy young immigrant who forever changed America, from bastard orphan to Washington’s right hand man, rebel to war hero, loving husband caught in the country’s first sex scandal to Treasury head who made an untrusting world believe in the American economy. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Eliza Hamilton and lifelong Hamilton friend and foe, Aaron Burr, all make appearances in the tuner about America’s fiery past.Starring Miranda in the title role, the cast also currently includes Christopher Jackson as George Washington, Leslie Odom Jr. as Aaron Burr, Phillipa Soo as Eliza Hamilton, Jonathan Groff as King George, Anthony Ramos as John Laurens/Phillip Hamilton, Daveed Diggs as Marquis De Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson, Renée Elise Goldsberry as Angelica Schuyler and Javier Muñoz as Hamilton alternate.

Beyond the tribe, outside the ghetto

first_imgJP LandmanTwo South Africans worth keeping an eye on – Bobby Godsell (previously with Anglogold and now with Eskom) and James Motlatsi (past union leader and now with Thebe Investments) – launched a book in December in which ordinary South Africans are given guidelines on what they can do to make the country a better place.*It is practical and action-oriented. The authors identify nine areas in which each one of us can make some contribution – from building stronger family ties to avoiding unnecessary debt.One of the nine areas – “Beyond the tribe, outside the ghetto” – drew my attention. It deals with building common community values and a sense of responsibility toward the greater good of all. We cannot live within our own tribe and ghetto as if the outside world does not exist.We are still a nation in the making and still working toward those common values which bind us.But at the moment we are caught between two opposing forces in South Africa, making the process that much harder.On the one hand, there is a natural inclination to be with one’s own kind. Here a comfort zone exists which makes it preferable and easier to be on the inside than on the outside.But this is exactly what nation-building requires of us. To move out of our comfort zone so that we can reach out to those who are not like us.It is this conflict that runs through our public debate.For instance, after Barack Obama’s election victory two white writers were quick to point out that the US is now non-racial – and that South Africa can only claim this right once a white person is elected president.Excuse me? What about a coloured or Indian person? Surely it is about minorities, and not about being white or not.And seen in the light of the 350 years of white domination in this country, such an opinion smacks of arrogance.Just take a moment to look at this from a black South African’s perspective.Instead, we still view things from within the tribe, rather than “Beyond the tribe, outside the ghetto”.Another example is the Springbok rugby emblem. Put in the shoes of their white colleagues, black sport enthusiasts must surely feel the same emotional connection associated with the Springbok and all it stands for – being the best; the hero of the nation.And the same applies to white people – placing themselves in the shoes of a black rugby player in the 1960s who was denied the right to this honour; never even to be considered for it. How does that feel?A third example is the media, defining itself as an instrument serving a particular tribe or ghetto, and not the greater community.Serving a particular target market is one thing – blowing on the flames of xenophobic hatred and encouraging an inferior mentality quite another.Afrikaans offers an opportunity in the reverse. This language can play a unique role: reaching out beyond the tribe to the greater community.It has the potential to strengthen South Africa’s social capital and bring renewal to the language at the same time. Not so that we can create a new and larger ghetto that only includes the Afrikaner tribe – that specifically not.Reaching out beyond the traditional tribe and ghetto must be based on common values and a sense of the greater community.Fortunately most South Africans seem disinclined to go for such a new ghetto idea. It is with these people that I add my voice.Godsell and Motlatsi come from different ghettos. They have reached out for the sake of common interests – Anglo mines and job opportunities. And now they share enough values to build a new nation. It’s everyone’s own choice.*Do It! – Every South African’s Guide to Making a Difference by James Motlatsi and Bobby Godsell.

Job Advice SA: online network uses Twitter to help job seekers

first_imgIf you’re looking for work, Job Advice SA is willing to guide you. All you have to do is contact them on social media for tips.The founders of Job Advise SA: Wesley Madziva, Vanessa Raath and Tim Barry. (Image: Job Advise SA Facebook)Melissa JavanThree individuals who wanted to connect recruiters and job seekers in an informal environment host a Twitter chat called #JobAdviceSA every Monday at 16:00 for an hour.The topics of this chat range from job hunting, to applying for jobs and going to interviews. The Job Advice SA team has also hosted chats on seasonal themes such as job seeker horror stories during October, the month in which Halloween falls.Vanessa Raath, Tim Barry and Wesley Madziva started Job Advice SA in June 2014, not having met in person. “We all chatted regularly via social media and realised that we shared a common goal – to help people find jobs,” Raath says.Other than Twitter, job seekers can also contact Job Advice SA on the Facebook page or Google+ account.See few Tweets from the chat on Monday, 20 February 2017:A personal tip that worked for me – if you’re looking for a job make it clear on your social media profiles!

After they met in person at a human resources conference in Johannesburg in May 2016, they decided to change the Twitter chat’s name.It relaunched to #JobAdviceSA because they realised that more job seekers engaged in their weekly chats. “We found that there was more interest from job seekers as opposed to recruiters,” explains Raath.“There were far more people looking for advice as opposed to recruiters looking to join in the chat and give advice. The focus shifted slightly to help people looking for jobs and not in connecting job seekers with recruiters as we had done previously.“This was a good move and I know we have added great value to many job seekers,” she says. “We give good advice but then people must find their own jobs, using what we have taught them.”How the Twitter chat worksRaath says they choose a suitable theme and four questions to answer during the course of the chat. “(We) write and publish a framing post incorporating the questions and expanding on the theme, then promote the chat leading up to 16:00 on Monday.“We ask a new question every 15 minutes, starting at 16:00. One of us acts as the main host tweeting the questions from @JobAdviceSA,” she explains. “We answer the questions as well others on the topic or even other topics posed by participants during the hour slot, more often than not going on well past 17:00.”Most Mondays, #JobAdviceSA becomes a trending topic on Twitter.We did it Again!

His work experience also includes specialising in human resources (HR) and recruitment.Barry is a business development consultant. Barry’s work experience also includes speaking about employer branding, HR and recruitment technology, and social media marketing.Raath has had 10 years experience in the recruitment industry – both internal and external recruitment. She now specialises in information technology recruitment, mainly on the Microsoft platform.AdviceThe one thing you should never do is pay a recruiter to register with them, warns Raath. “You should not pay them if they find you a job.“The recruiter will have an agreement in place with the client (your new employer) who will pay them for securing you as the candidate’s services. Recruitment agencies who want to charge people for registering with them are scams.”Raath says that there are recruiters who look for work for people in specific industries or career paths. For example, she is a recruiter for seniors in the information technology industry. “If you are more senior it is best to find a recruiter who specialises in that industry – they will be more connected and will have a better variety of clients and opportunities.”According to Raath, it’s troubling that most job seekers do not put the required effort into the job hunt. “They must have an excellent, well presented curriculum vitae; make sure they prepare for their interviews and be constantly up-skilling themselves,” she says.“We also touch a lot on personal branding and how this is important to stand out from your peers.

Patrick Brown enters Ontario Tory leadership race

first_imgTORONTO – Ontario’s Progressive Conservatives plunged deeper into turmoil Friday as former leader Patrick Brown, who stepped down amid sexual misconduct allegations weeks ago, vowed to reclaim his old job bolstered by what he called a groundswell of support from the party grassroots.The 39-year-old Barrie, Ont., politician officially joined the race to lead the Tories shortly before a registration deadline, making him the fifth candidate to vie for the top post and stirring more controversy at a time when the party is trying to get back on course.Brown, who has been waging a campaign to redeem himself in the public eye in recent days, said he found the strength to make his resurgence after hearing from the party faithful and believes he is the best placed to take on the Liberals in the spring election.“I think my name has been cleared and now it’s about getting Ontario back on track,” he said at the party’s Toronto headquarters.“This isn’t about me, this isn’t about the PC party, this is about making sure that on June 7, the Progressive Conservative party is successful,” he said.“The support we’ve been getting across the province has just been so encouraging…frankly, it changed my opinion. This is not what I was thinking about but the support of the party membership has really inspired me.”Support for Brown is far from unanimous, however. Just hours before joining the leadership race, Brown was kicked out of the Tory caucus, a decision that means he will sit as an independent when the legislature resumes on Tuesday.Experts said his candidacy could exacerbate tensions within the party and expose the Tories — who had been leading in the polls — to attacks from their political rivals as the province heads to the polls.“It certainly throws the party into even more turmoil and it’s already in a lot of turmoil,” said Jonathan Malloy, a political science professor at Carleton University in Ottawa.“I can’t see that he’s going to win the race but he can certainly do a lot to mix things up. But I’m not sure it’s going to help him or the party in the long run,” he said. “It’s becoming more about clearing Patrick Brown’s name than what’s best for the Ontario PC party.”Brown’s ouster from caucus suggests not everyone in the party is behind him, said Nelson Wiseman, a political expert at the University of Toronto.His candidacy could also give ammunition to the Liberals, who may question why the party is considering handing over the reins to a man accused of sexual misconduct, he said.Brown fought to clear his name over the last week, alleging two women who spoke out against him in late January were lying and possibly manipulated by his political enemies inside and outside the party. He has also vowed to sue CTV News, which broadcast the allegations. CTV has said it stands by its reporting.Brown’s run for the party leadership has already proved polarizing, however, with some of his competitors saying it would pull attention away from what should be the party’s real objectives — defeating the Liberals.“Patrick Brown made the right decision to step down. A leadership election is not the place for him to clear his name,” Toronto lawyer and businesswoman Caroline Mulroney said on Twitter. “Our focus should remain on beating (Premier) Kathleen Wynne in less than 100 days. This is a distraction from that and I am disappointed.”Former Toronto city councillor Doug Ford said in a statement that the party is stronger without Brown, citing a boost in fundraising and memberships since the former leader resigned.“The Ontario PC Party needs to focus on defeating the (Kathleen) Wynne Liberals in June,” he said.Former Tory legislator Christine Elliott, who came in second to Brown in the last leadership race, also stressed the importance of unity ahead of the spring election.“With fewer than 100 days, now is a time for unity. I am the leader that can unite the party and beat Kathleen Wynne,” she said in a statement.Social conservative advocate Tanya Granic Allen, who is also running, did not issue a statement, but during Thursday’s leadership debate she accused Brown and corruption and said he “left the party in tatters.”In the days following Brown’s departure, interim Tory leader Vic Fedeli vowed to “root out the rot” within the party ranks. An internal audit ordered by Fedeli found a significant discrepancy in the party’s membership numbers, indicating the Tories had roughly 67,000 fewer members than the 200,000 claimed by Brown.The party also decided to hold new nomination contests in two ridings after reviewing races plagued by allegations of voting irregularities under Brown’s tenure.The party’s president, Jag Badwal, said Brown’s application will follow the same due process as the other four candidates.The Liberals, meanwhile, said it doesn’t matter who leads the Tories because the party plans to roll back a planned increase to the minimum wage regardless of who takes over for Brown.Ontario’s New Democrats said the Progressive Conservatives are not in a position to govern themselves, much less the province.last_img read more
