#Oxford's Port Meadow, an ancient meadow where Bronze Age people once buried their dead, was one of the most peaceful spots in Oxford. But now it is at the centre of a row over a complex of student flats that, it is claimed, has “vandalised” the city’s famous skyline.

Toby Porter, founder of the Save Port Meadow campaign group, has welcomed the University's 'Congregation' - its sovereign body, which consists of academic staff  - meeting to consider the motion of reducing the height of the buildings.
https://saveportmeadow.wordpress.com/2015/02/01/sunday-times-1st-feb-2015/

He told the Daily Mail : 'Normally in planning cases, you have up to three months after a planning application to lodge an appeal but in this case nobody really knew the application had been planted.

'Nobody was aware of the buildings until they started going up in September 2012, by which time the three-month period for a legal challenge to the planning permission had long passed.

'This was one of the many unusual things about the case so we started looking into it and what we uncovered was an extremely unsatisfactory planning process.
Campaigners have described the Castle Mill development near Port Meadow, Oxford, as a 'horrible eyesore' and believe the six blocks of student flats should be reduced in height.

#Globo have a new infographic that gives some insights into enterprise mobility. 40% of employees now BYOD, double that in 2012. #Blackberry is now irrelevant and #WindowsMobile has failed to gain much traction in the Enterprise.

Building a quantum computer can sometimes yield unexpected benefits — like providing the right environment to demonstrate that Albert Einstein's theory of special relativity is, in fact, correct.
