Nov

The new (emphasis on new) stapler in the UG newsroom has disappeared.  This is the fourth or fifth stapler that has gone missing.  The sticker on it which says 'Do Not Remove' does actually mean what it says.  Whoever has removed it, please put it back.  And if it's the same person who has lifted Gerardo's (also) new replacement stapler, please return that also.

Palmer crucially failed to turn over her final page of notes during transcription, meaning she missed the last four words of the passage. In the end, her total of 8 errors was just one fewer than those made by Polley in the 100wpm passage.

Nov

From majestic photo-bombing to strutting like a diva, there is no end to the talents of Benedict Cumberbatch.

So it should come as no surprise that he may have accidentally created a new revenue stream for struggling newspapers.
