Choosing a university: thankfully, students aren't this shallow

Writing about web page http://www.sodexho.co.uk/ULS06-summary.pdf

Reading this report, you would be forgiven for thinking that prospective students were facile, image-conscious individuals who don't give a stuff about the academic quality of courses and universities. Fortunately, the third time I looked at this I realised that the authors had simply excluded academic factors from their consideration.

Makes sense though, doesn't it?! To heck with standards, what are the catering facilities like? And, by the way, are they provided by a nice external operator like, say, Sodexho, or, in error, by the university itself?


Here and there and back again

Rating:
3 out of 5 stars

Man is accidental time traveller, catapulted back and forward. Wife isn't. But they first meet when she is young and he is rather older and continue to meet throughout her chronologically normal life until they eventually get it together for real but then, of course, it ain't quite that straightforward.

Nice proposiition, well-worked through and kind of hangs together despite the changes in time, ages and setting (which I gave up trying to track). A very easy and light read and pretty enjoyable really as a fun thriller. There is a love story between the protagonists at the heart of it which gives it its main thread but I'm too hard to comment on that.

So, top Richard and Judy fayre but no worse for that!
