On Saturday evening, a student hung up the banner in a doorway upon discovering that Willetts was in the college. Willetts was forced to take the banner down before being able to leave.The student told Cherwell, “It was something of an ‘emergency protest’ as no students knew he was going to be there. Willetts himself told me that £9k tuition fees are “progressive and productive”! He had to take the banner down to get through the doorway in the picture, and he got quite angry!”The reason as to why Willetts was present in the college is unclear, but it appears he was invited to a formal dinner along with several other eminent guests including Michael Portillo and a delegation from the Spanish government.However, Balliol students were not happy at having the Universities Minister in their college and decided to protest due to his unpopular decision to raise tuition fees to £9,000 per annum.The protesting student explained, “I think David Willetts is a despicable ideologue who, as Universities Minister, trebled tuition fees and is determined to marketise education, making it increasingly a privilege rather than a public good.“For me, it raises broader questions about who colleges (and the university) belong to – students and workers, or a bureaucratic elite. As far as I know, the JCR and MCR were not informed that this event was taking place and so had no opportunity to shun and condemn individuals like Willetts who are responsible for the decline and marketisation of education nationally.”A second student who was present at the protest said, “The whole thing was pretty funny, but also depressing. He tried to avoid walking through the banner but when he realised he couldn’t got angry. I don’t really appreciate an out of touch, angry old man telling me that I won’t actually have to pay my fees as long as I’m a ‘decent graduate’. At least I think that’s what he said.”She added, “Also I’m seriously confused by his definition of progressive. It might seem like it wasn’t worthwhile with so few of us there but he needs to know that he’s going to be held to account wherever he goes. Despite there being a larger crowd at the Union, this seemed to phase him far more. He wasn’t in a crowd of likeminded people.”Willetts has already been shown that he is not popular in the university. While participating in a debate on higher education earlier this term, protestors unfurled a ‘Fuck you Willetts’ banner from the balcony of the debating chamber. The two students responsible also shouted, “David Willetts, get out, we know what you’re all about” and “Cuts, job losses, money for the bosses”.The student who tied this banner over the doorway asked to remain anonymous due to the recent decision by Cambridge University to suspend a student for seven terms for a similar anti-Willetts protest. The Cambridge student in question read out a poetic protest to Willetts while the latter was giving a speech at the university.

Developer: Traders in Purple Price: Three-bedroom from $899,000 Vave Scarborough Vave Scarborough launched this month.TWO new projects from builders Traders in Purple have been launched on the Redcliffe Peninsula, offering owner-occupiers the opportunity to invest in a growing region. Bathers Beachside at Margate Beach is currently under construction, and Vave Scarborough launched this month. Both aim to compete with the waterfront property markets of Sydney and Melbourne while remaining affordable. A render showing a kitchen at Vave.He said Redcliffe Peninsula’s beaches and the recent addition of the train line meant it was an attractive place to invest. “The Redcliffe apartment market continues to perform strongly, with increased buyer demand off the back of infrastructure improvements attracting a diverse range of buyers for its location, value and overall laid-back beach lifestyle and cafe culture,” he said.*** THE BASICS Bathers couple David Brougham and his wife Nora Hyde.“We selected that apartment because it’s boutique, and it gives us the layout we wanted,” Mr Brougham said. “Three bedrooms give us room for visitors.“But what we want to do is just push a paddleboard out.”Mr Brougham also cited the recently completed Redcliffe Peninsula rail line as a factor in choosing the area, as his wife could easily commute to her work in the CBD. “We weren’t seriously looking at Redcliffe until the rail line had been completed,” he said.More from newsLand grab sees 12 Sandstone Lakes homesites sell in a week21 Jun 2020Tropical haven walking distance from the surf9 Oct 2019Traders in Purple chief executive Brett Robinson said the two projects would complement the area’s beachfront location in a similar fashion to the company’s recent project at The Sebel Brisbane.“Both developments capitalise on the picturesque coastal setting and more affordable waterfront housing compared with Sydney or Melbourne,” Mr Robinson said. “The village feel and waterfront living boasts 23km of flat walking paths along the waterfront, and close proximity to the new Sebel hotel at Margate Beach.” Vave Scarborough encompasses 50 two and three-bedroom options, including 11 penthouse apartments, while Bathers Beachside will have 24 three-bedroom apartments. Vave Scarborough launched this month.“The development of both Bathers Beachside and Vave Scarborough will offer something for buyers at every stage of their lives and every budget, including those who wish to downsize from the family home,” Mr Robinson said.

Published on November 5, 2019 at 10:12 pm Contact Danny: [email protected] | @DannyEmerman Facebook Twitter Google+ Syracuse head coach Quentin Hillsman had seen enough of his starting point guard initiating the offense hesitantly, throwing risky passes and searching for her shot too tentatively.So when junior Kiara Lewis found herself wide open but elected to pull the ball out instead of shooting a 3-pointer, Hillsman called timeout. He met her in front of the scorer’s table. “I told Kiki just be aggressive — she’s open, she’s gotta shoot the ball,” Hillsman said. “We want her to be aggressive and play the way she can play.” When Hillsman called that timeout, SU trailed 24-15. Lewis had more turnovers (three) than points (two). After discussing her play with Hillsman, though, Lewis changed her approach and led SU on a 16-6 run to end the quarter and take a lead into halftime. Lewis continued her aggressive play for the rest of the game, controlling the tempo and providing No. 21 Syracuse (1-0) with a team-high 16 points, eight rebounds and seven assists in a 66-54 season-opening win over Ohio (0-1). “We started off a little slow,” Lewis said, “And part of it starts with me just because I have the ball more.” AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThroughout the game, most of SU’s half-court sets consisted of running Lewis through on-ball screens, allowing her to drive and either create for herself or kick out to shooters on the perimeter. Ohio’s defense countered this by packing the paint, preventing SU bigs from diving through the middle for easy layups.This worked at first, as Lewis often forced passes into rolling bigs who were swarmed. But Lewis adjusted by recognizing when the defense was collapsed into the paint and then kicking out to shooters. Senior guard Gabrielle Cooper (10 points) was often the beneficiary. Once SU started making outside shots, Ohio had to close out harder to shooters, opening up the floor more for Lewis. Amy Nakamura | Co-Digital Editor“She just started to attack downhill, and that was the difference in the game,” Hillsman said.After trailing 20-10 after the first quarter, freshman Taleah Washington capped off the 10-point first half comeback with a fadeaway, buzzer-beating three from the corner. With less than two seconds remaining, Washington collected an offensive rebound near the paint, retreated to the three-point line, gathered and nailed the shot to give the Orange a 31-30 lead. Lewis continued her downhill approach in the second half. A minute into the third quarter, she beat her defender with a left-to-right crossover and finished at the rim. A hesitation dribble on the next possession gave her another make in the paint. Then, when Ohio’s defense sagged into the lane, Lewis drove and found Gabrielle Cooper in the corner for a 3-pointer. Three possessions, seven points, all Lewis.Even when her shot wasn’t falling — Lewis went 1-of-4 from deep — she stayed aggressive. After grabbing a rebound in traffic with 1:25 left in the third, Lewis went coast-to-coast and drew a foul at the rim. On a similar play later, she got cut off at the elbow, but found Cooper in the corner with a cross-court pass for a triple.“I think it allows us to play off each other,” Cooper said of the drive-and-kick offense. “When we started hitting shots that brought their defense out and that created more lanes and opportunities for dump-offs.”But Ohio kept the score close. Syracuse’s 2-3 zone defense closed out on shooters inconsistently, and lost guard Erica Johnson — who finished with 13 points — on the perimeter often. Johnson’s triple late in the third quarter knotted the score at 46, but SU responded with a 14-0 run led by Lewis. Lewis scored seven of her 16 points in the final frame, including a pull-up 3-pointer at the end of the shot clock that banked in. Her fast break left-handed layup with six minutes remaining gave SU a 12-point lead, a margin it wouldn’t relinquish. Still, Lewis wasn’t perfect. She “needs to take care of the ball better” and make smarter decisions, Hillsman said. Against Ohio, Lewis had six turnovers.“That can’t happen,” Lewis said. “I mean, it’s the first game so all the jitters are out now. I’m not worried.”As Lewis dribbled out the clock with a double-digit lead, Tiana Mangakahia, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in June and ruled out for the season, watched from the bench. Before the game, Syracuse warmed up in customized t-shirts displaying “Tough4T,” and after the win Hillsman fantasized about what a “perfect storm” backcourt of Mangakahia and Lewis might’ve looked like this year. But the reality is it’s Lewis’s team to run now, Hillsman said, and as long as she plays aggressively, that doesn’t concern him. Comments
