My contact with BBC recruitment reflects Kendrick Curtis’ comment. In 1995 my university careers service advertised vacancies for the summer vacation, one of which was for placements at the BBC. “Minimum 8 weeks commitment, absolutely no expenses paid.” So, at a time when casual paid work was still hard to find, students were expected to find (bearing in mind travel, transport and living costs of working in London) at least 800 for the privilege because of course we can all rely on our parents to stump up that kind of money, can’t we? Oh, and the university in question was Oxford, presumably meaning I’d be considered ‘privileged’ notwithstanding the total lack of either academic background or money in my family..
Stop parroting crap you hear against a made up stance. It makes you sound like a moron. Please hear this: completely open borders is a non issue. Moving through the soaked, coarse grass I began to examine each one closely, and finally identified the tree I was looking for by means of certain small scars rising along its trunk, and by a limb extending over the river, and another thinner limb growing near it. This was the tree, and it seemed to me standing there to resemble those men, the giants of your childhood, whom you encounter years later and find that they are not merely smaller in relation to your growth, but that they are absolutely smaller, shrunken by age. In this double demotion the old giants have become pigmies while you were looking the other way..

The presidential campaign and breaking news events draw many of us to social media. We want to monitor the news, post our reporting, share the interesting information we find and offer our thoughts.That’s great. Have fun out there.But (there’s always a “but”) all of us journalists as well as those in other departments need to remember that what we post and retweet can reflect on NPR.
The moon pool is also used to cast nets for zoology research.I ask Grald Darnis, a student at Laval University, if anyone ever drops a line down it and used it as a fishing hole.He smiles and says no, as there are very few fish down there, and most aren’t bigger than a person’s finger.Each day, Darnis sends down a series of nine fine mesh nets that can be opened separately at different depths to collect zooplankton.Doing so at different times of the year will tell how the zooplankton move with the seasons between the surface and the depths. When they are deep below the surface, the carbon dioxide they produce is less likely to go right back into the atmosphere.On Saturday, a couple of students with Schools on Board look on as Darnis works.He rinses his catch into buckets to use for respiration and taxonomy studies later on.There are no fish, but he does collect hundreds, perhaps thousands, of tiny copepods, including some that give off pinpoints of bright blue light when he stirs the water around them, drawing gasps from the students.Universe hates Higgs boson, Chicago CubsBy John Bowman, CBCNews. A physicist working on the Large Hadron Collider doesn’t think much of the theory that the universe is sabotaging the project to prevent the discovery of the Higgs boson.
