Middle-aged partiers come to St Anne’s bop

first_imgLast Saturday, St Anne’s students were surprised upon entering Baby Love Bar to find that they were to share their ‘Song Titles’ bop with sixty remaining revellers from a fortieth birthday party.Although the St Anne’s students had expected to have the club exclusively after 11pm, Martin Forde, owner of Baby Love, stated that they had not requested for the venue to be private.Some St Anne’s students commented on the queue length and the birthday guests’ behaviour but St Anne’s Entz reps, Stephanie MacGillivray and Alison Hinds, explained that, “although the situation wasn’t ideal and it felt a bit awkward, it wasn’t too much of an issue and people generally had a pretty good night”.St Anne’s bops, usually held privately at the club and starting at 10pm, started at the later time of 11 on Saturday owing to the privately held birthday party taking place beforehand. MacGillivray and Hinds told Cherwell, “the reality was that we were allowed entry from 11, but the guests of the 40th Birthday party were still there. Obviously this caused a few problems because the club soon became very full due to both events being held there, and so some St Anne’s students had to queue, resulting in a few people leaving and going elsewhere.” However, they also commented on the “helpful” nature of the bar’s staff when trying to resolve the issue, adding that “the remainder of students did manage to get in”.One St Anne’s student, who did not wish to be named, commented on the slightly raucous behaviour of some of the birthday guests, telling Cherwell that one woman was seen “chucking in the toilets” and that a group of men were “lined up at the bottom of the stairs making pervy comments as students walked down”.When asked about this behaviour, Forde responded “If there was something inappropriate, why didn’t they say? I would have sorted it out and [I] take complaints very seriously”. Another student also commented, “If we wanted to club with other people then we could have gone anywhere, bops are about having fun with college friends”.MacGillivray and Hinds, however, explained, “The guests of the other party did stay at Baby Love, but they kept themselves to themselves, and so did we”. One St Anne’s fresher seemed unconcerned by the extra guests at the bop, telling Cherwell, “Our college supports fun regardless of age. I look forward to attending the next Babylove diamond wedding anniversary”.MacGillivray and Hinds acknowledged the misunderstanding saying, “While we are obviously disappointed that they were not more transparent about what they meant by the club being ‘ours’ after eleven, they were helpful in resolving the issue.” The pair also hoped that there would not be “any similar problems in the future”.last_img read more

7 horrible mistakes your credit union is making with IT compliance

first_imgby: Matt WilhelmWe see and hear it every day. Credit Unions taken by surprise with a bad write up on an IT Exam. Sometimes, honestly, it is not a surprise at all. In fact, more often than not, a credit union exec may have taken a calculated risk in choosing to put an upgrade or security fix on the backburner due to budget, time and resources versus the potential threat or exposure.Here are 7 mistakes that credit unions make when it comes to IT compliance that are not worth the risk of oversight, be it intentional or not:1. Not documenting IT policies and proceduresAccording to the FFIEC Handbook, “It is the responsibility of an institution’s board and senior management to ensure that the institution identifies, assesses, prioritizes, manages, and controls IT risks as part of the business continuity planning process. The board and senior management should establish policies that define how the institution will manage and control the risks that were identified. “ continue reading » 4SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Ireland captain O’Connell braced for bruising encounter against Italy

first_imgIreland expect to be “battered up front and pushed to the limit” by Italy in Sunday’s crucial World Cup encounter at London’s Olympic Stadium. Captain Paul O’Connell has warned Ireland to expect the kind of punishing clash that the Azzurri threw up in the 2011 World Cup, when Leonardo Ghiraldini was banned for 15 weeks for gouging Cian Healy. Ireland can secure quarter-final qualification with victory in Sunday’s Pool D clash, while Italy must win to keep their slim last-eight hopes alive. “I really enjoy the build-up.” Munster talisman O’Connell will partner “beast” Iain Henderson at lock, with the 35-year-old skipper branding Devin Toner unlucky not to force a starting berth. “Donnacha Ryan has done incredibly well to get back after injuries,” said O’Connell of Ireland’s second row picture. “He’s a special kind of athlete in terms of being out for a year with Munster but yet when he came back he was still one of the fittest guys in the team. “He has lightning pace as well. “Devin is just a very relaxed guy but tends to not make any mistakes. “He’s a brilliant carrier, brilliant hands, very relaxed way of running the line-out, and a terrific player. “Iain has obviously been playing great rugby. He’s a real beast. So that’s just in the second row. It’s all across the team, that level of competition, I think. “We scrummaged during the week and Cian Healy at the moment is constantly trying to have a crack at training. “I suppose we talk about our preparation during the week all the time, it seems like a bit of a mantra to us, but that competitiveness in training leads us to preparing very well. “You do not want to give away a penalty in training. You don’t want to drop the ball down in training, you don’t want to get a line-out wrong, that kind of stuff. “You want to know your role inside-out. And competition for places really improves that standard.” Munster lock O’Connell admitted Ireland are bracing themselves for a brutal dogfight, especially up front. “I’ve no doubt we’ll be battered up front and pushed to the limit,” said O’Connell, evoking memories of Ireland’s 36-6 victory on October 2, 2011. “They’re always incredibly physical games against Italy with the emphasis on the scrum, and big emphasis around their defence. “There’s no doubt it’s going to be really tough, so that’s what we’ve been preparing for. “There’s been a change in mindset because it’s a knockout game for us. “I can’t remember a World Cup before where we’ve sat as a group on couches and watched all the games. “That builds the excitement for us. “Personally I’m more excited than ever because there aren’t many more of them to come.

Kerber & Cibulkova reach semi-finals

first_img(BBC)- World number one Angelique Kerber and Slovakia’s seventh seed Dominika Cibulkova secured semi-final places at the WTA Finals as both players won their final group matches in Singapore.Kerber beat American Madison Keys 6-3 6-3 to claim her third win of the week.Cibulkova had required the German to win in straight sets to progress from the White Group, having earlier beaten Romania’s Simona Halep 6-3 7-6 (7-5).Russia’s Svetlana Kuznetsova had already qualified from the Red Group.Kuznetsova, who only qualified for the season-ending event last Saturday, will play Cibulkova in the last four, while Kerber will face the winner of Friday’s final round-robin match between Poland’s defending champion Agnieszka Radwanska and Czech fourth seed Karolina Pliskova.Cibulkova’s straight-set victory guaranteed Kerber’s place in the semi-finals, and the Slovak then had to wait and hope that Kerber would return the favour with a two-set win over Keys.“Probably I’ll be checking the score, but that’s the worst thing you can do,” Cibulkova said after her match.“Maybe we’re going to go shopping to try and forget it, and just see the result.”Kerber duly saw off Keys in little over an hour, and said: “Today I wasn’t thinking that I already was in the semis. It was important to go out to win the match and win all three matches.last_img read more
