We would like to invite you to help us campaign to protect the quality of education at Bradford College. The college is an important resource that provides courses for local people of all ages at all educational levels. We are particularly proud of our record in Adult Education through which many students who have had a poor educational start in life have been enabled to achieve and progress.

Anyone else having some problems with the facebook app recently? Today, despite not actually having the app open at all, it's managed to account for 53% of my battery usage. Did they update it recently?

Does anyone know what the deal is with a network/carriers obligation to push available software updates for a device?

Creating a sci fi type illustration for fun etc. This is a crop of it. 
Do I go with original full colour on the left, or reduced colour on the right? I have a soft spot for both, so, y'know...

Why not fame them both? They go well together and the colors from both of them are aesthetically pleasing bouncing off each other. Bonus: you won't have to split them up. Bonus 2: That wall is gonna look nice. Good work.

After posting that I uninstalled all updates and went back to whatever version of Facebook was bundled on my phone and didn't open it.
I just noticed today that they have a new update available, so I'm going to try and download it and see if I get the same problems as before EG incredibly slow everything and facebook using up over half my battery power.

I recently installed OS X Yosemite on my mac, and now for some reason most of my fonts don't preview correctly in the character tab in Illustrator CS5. Does anyone else have this issue/know of a fix or am I going to have to roll back to Mavericks?

Thank you all for trying to help. I updated Java to the most current version (8) but that didn't seem to fix the problem so have just decided to go back to Mavericks for now.
I know at least from this that this is a known issue between the new OS and the old software, just nice to know I'm not alone.

Does anyone know of a decent sketching/drawing app available for android? Weighing up the possibility of getting a tablet, and being able to do digital drawings would help my productivity heaps.
