first_imgMiles Coates, member of the Oxford Union standing committee in Trinity term 2011, has been disqualified from elections for electoral malpractice. The Ex-standing committee member was also fined the cost of the tribunal, which is a maximum of £500. A tribunal brought against Coates by Daniel Alphonsus, found him guilty of breaching Rule 33 (a) (i) (24) which implicated Coates of “taking part in a conspiracy” to commit electoral malpractice. Disciplinary proceedings have been delayed until 1st week of Michaelmas 2011 as requested by the defendants. Izzy Westbury, the incoming Union President, stated “The Senior Treasurer has since granted leave to appeal and requested that the Returning Officer convenes an Appellate Board, which I believe he is currently in the process of doing. Alphonsus also noted two other breaches of election practice. The tribunal found that Coates had no case to answer for these. Sangha has denied all allegations and stated ‘I deny the charges against me and given that I feel they are without basis, I hope to be and am confident I will be acquitted in due course.’ “This process is therefore still pending and no conclusions have yet been made.’ Coates has since given notice to the Senior officers that he wishes to appeal the final report of the tribunal panel under Rule 33 (d) (ii) (2) which states that “any Member who has had an allegation brought against him during the election concerned” has the right to appeal to an Appellate Board. The Union was also stirred by presidential rivalries earlier this term when ex-President James Kingston (Michelmas 2010) submitted a complaint against Karim Agha, Rahul Ahluwalia, James Langman and Ashvir Sangha on 18 June. The election tribunal, held on 25th June, disqualified Coates from the election and further disqualified him from nominating himself in future elections. When contacted, Coates and Alphonsus both declined to comment. Westbury said, “This application was granted by the Acting Returning Officer at the time, David Blagbrough, so proceedings will occur in accordance with this application.”last_img read more

first_imgHigh street bakery chain Greggs has celebrated a profitable Christmas and thriving year, with total sales up 10.8% during the festive period.The retail bakery business saw like-for-like sales increase by 5.1% during the five-week period ending 7 January 2012. Ken McMeikan, chief executive of Greggs, said: “An excellent Christmas boosted our sales performance at the end of a tough year for high streets. Highlights during the Christmas period included record sales of our award-winning sweet mince pies with more than 7.5 million sold since the launch of our seasonal range, a 27% increase in sales of Festive Bakes and coffee sales up 21%.”Greggs appears not to have fallen victim to the high street like many UK businesses going into administration, reporting a 5.8% rise in total sales during the last financial year, a 52-week period ending 31 December 2011, with like-for-like sales up 1.4%.Throughout the 12-month period, a record 98 new shops were opened, with a net increase of 84 after 14 closures, giving a total of 1,571 shops in 2011. This expansion created around 800 new jobs, lifting total employee numbers above 20,000.McMeikan added: “We anticipate that the tough trading environment will continue during 2012, with consumers’ disposable incomes remaining under pressure. We will therefore continue to focus on maximising our customer appeal through product innovation and strong promotional activity, building on Greggs’ already excellent reputation for value.“We expect another year of marginally positive like-for-like sales growth in 2012, while total sales will benefit from the opening of around 90 net new shops, creating a further 800 new retail jobs and making Greggs even more accessible to customers across the UK.”last_img read more

first_imgMountain biking always struck me as a spring, summer, or fall sport. The short daylight hours of winter and colder temperatures make it difficult to squeeze in trail bike rides in the winter. After picking up the sport of cyclocross this fall, I decided that I would take the plunge into the world of night riding. It took me a few weeks of thinking and talking about night riding before I decided I was ready to commit. A couple of months ago I purchased a relatively expensive bike light. I also decided to purchase a couple of Cree XML T-6 bike lights based on the recommendation of a friend. After using both the expensive light and the Cree, the Cree bike lights have exceeded my expectations, especially given the price point.Based on my shopping experience and anecdotal evidence, quality bike lights are notoriously expensive. When spending that much on an electronic device, however, I expect it to do more than simply act as a flashlight.  One thing that makes the Cree bike lights such an attractive option to the novice night rider is that they are a not cost prohibitive barrier to night riding. With Cree, you can test the waters of night riding without making a huge investment. The Cree lights claim to have 1,600 lumens, have three settings, high, medium and strobe. I have not tested the lumen output to verify this claim, but suffice it to say, this light is bright. The Cree lights are rechargeable and a full charge last about 4 to 5 hours, which is pretty similar for much more expensive options. The lights easily mount to a helmet or your handlebars and come with accessories for mounting. I suggest you buy a pair of Cree bike lights, one for your helmet and one for your handlebars and get out and explore the trails after dark. Adventure awaits.MSRP $29.99last_img read more

first_imgCDCWashington D.C. — A disease has spread to areas it normally hasn’t been, the American Heart Association is warning.The disease, mostly found in Central and South America, has become more common worldwide, American Heart Association officials said. Health officials have noted for years that it affects an estimated 300,000 U.S. residents or more.Chagas disease, a cause of heart failure, stroke and sudden death, results from a parasite transmitted by “kissing bugs,” a committee stated in a medical journal Aug. 20.“Kissing bugs” get their nickname because they like to bite people on their faces.Doctors say the next time you’re out in a wooded area or on the patio, you should be on alert.But it isn’t the bite itself you should be concerned about, according to Dr. Robert Springer.“So while they’re biting you, ‘kissing’ you in the middle of the night, they also happen to be defecating there,” Springer said. “You wake up the next morning, you’re wiping the sleep out of your eye and you’ve just moved infected excrement into your eye and into your mouth mucous membrane. Then you become infected.”The excrement contains the parasite that causes the virus. The symptoms include swelling of the eye or area where the parasite entered the body. It can also be associated with fever and headaches, but in extreme cases, Chagas disease can be deadly.The disease can also be passed through contaminated food or drink, from pregnant mothers to their babies and through blood transfusions and organ transplants, the American Heart Association notes.The above map shows where “kissing bugs” have been reported across the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.“Worst-case scenario is a chronic infection that can involve the heart,” Springer said. “It can involve the intestines and especially in the heart. It can cause large enlargement of the heart and heart failure and other heart troubles, including rhythm disturbances.”“Kissing bugs” infest adobe houses in Central and Southern America, according to the American Heart Association. They are found across much of the U.S., but most indoor structures, built with plastered walls and sealed entryways, prevent insect invasion, and “kissing bugs” rarely infest indoor areas of houses.Not all “kissing bugs” are infected with the parasite that causes Chagas disease.The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says the majority of the current cases are travel-related, meaning the person got the illness while traveling out of the country.Medications can cure infections caught early, the American Heart Association also notes.(Associated Press)last_img read more
