Shorthand Champions League group tables - week 2

Oct
17

Standings for the seven Shorthand Champions League groups are shown below as we reach the half-way stage.

At the end of the group stage, the top two from each group will automatically qualify for the knockout stages, and there are a further two places for the best third-place finishers - so it's still all to play for.

Group G has so far proved not to be the Group of Death but the Group of Dearth - with not a single point registered by any of its players.

Meanwhile Katie Palmer and Alex Norman remain 100% error-free from both of their matches.

Another six-figure bumper payout for a council chief...

Oct

Councils are prone to plead poverty and complain bitterly at the government's relentless squeeze on their budgets.

They often have a case.

But then stories like this one make taxpayers wonder exactly how they can claim they are short of cash...

When we set up the Centre for Journalism just a few short years ago, our ambitions for our students were simple and straightforward:

1. that they would learn professional skills from top CfJ practitioners;
2. that they would get great jobs throughout the industry;
3. that one of them would appear in a national newspaper spread wearing only his pants.

Background update

Oct
08

Continuing our open source experiment with the background colour of the CfJ web site, for the next few days we'll be sporting this look suggested by postgrad teaching assistant Laura Garcia.

She calls it 'sexygrey' or 'Ted Baker' grey (I've no idea why).

We'll have at least one other option at the end of this week (and I'm still open to further suggestions), and then you can vote on your favourites.

Meanwhile, is it just me, or does it suddenly feel a bit chilly around here...?

Then she got an offer to freelance for the same team right afterwards. Now the good news is she is is going to start as a full time reporter for the Post in a week or so. You can see her current team's work here
