Should we really ‘Like’ Facebook as much as we do?



In 2010, Facebook introduced the ‘Like’ button and the little blue thumbs up has since become a familiar sight on most websites.

Its the UMSA Boat Race on Saturday and we would like to catch the whole thing on camera!

So i need some willing volunteers to help film it.

I need one camera at the start, one at the finish, one in with the spectators/jazz band/etc and one of you to go on a boat.

Gerado is happy for us to borrow the equipment but we will need to get a days insurance for the camera on the boat.

First Years' Hoodies


I don't how many first years heard about the hoody idea but we're thinking of getting a class hoody with Journalism on it and other exciting things...

I don't want to go ahead and pick something without all your consent so, on Thursday, once we've finished convergent journalism (so at 12pm), can we all just stay behind and decide on designs and things?

I have found one website which looks good, Banana Moon, but feel free to shop around yourselves.
