I'd hoped to go to Guadeloupe early next year. I think now having seen the price of this hotel it may be the year after that at the earliest. I would've thought that accepting I couldn't go in 2017 would make me sad. Instead I feel at peace, because I have a plan and even if it takes longer to come to fruition than first anticipated I know that time and patience are my friends. I will go to Guadeloupe, but for now the planning, dreaming and anticipation is delicious.

Has anyone else been watching Quantico? I'm watching back to back catch up and so far despite a few squeaky bum moments when I thought they were going to go with the obvious 'brown face = terrorist' it's got me interested.

Just as an FYI, be aware I'm only on episode 8 so please no spoilers.

Have you been watching it? What have you thought?

Spell check can be taught to spell the way you want it to spell. I've taught Google Dictionary to spell words that it should know, but until I correct it, it wants to flag or change.

I agree it's Americancentric, but aren't there dictionaries available for British English?

Wherever I am, I always have a note book with me in case inspiration strikes. I've lost too many fine words and possibly extraordinary ideas to risk going out without one.

Yep damn those Johnny foreigners coming here paying their taxes and spending their wages bolstering the economy.
 
"I'm not going to waste your time or patronize you by preaching the benefits of immigrations. Instead, I want to ask you this, who has caused our country most problems: the bankers who plunged us into economic disaster, the expenses-milking politicians who have the cheek to lecture us on benefit fraud, the wealthy tax-dodgers keeping £25 billion from the Exchequer, the poverty wage-paying bosses and the ripoff rent-charging landlords, or Indian nurses and Polish fruit pickers?"

Why do universities continue to rely on student evaluations when numerous studies have shown them to be not only unreliable in terms of effective learning outcomes but that they are gender biased against female lecturers? It's high time that universities find more effective teaching evaluation methods and start thoroughly tackling gender bias in higher education.

#feminism #education #everydaysexism
A series of studies across countries and disciplines in higher education confirm that student evaluations of teaching (SET) are significantly correlated with instructor gender, with students regula…

+John Smith I hate to break it to you but the data from the multiple studies mentioned in the article refute your point completely. Evidence is your friend - use it when you try to reach conclusions.

Good facilities, friendly and helpful staff and a reasonable price. There is plenty of equipment and the gym is nicely ventilated so you don't overheat, the entire gym is clean and well looked after and the changing facilities good. Sure the showers get a little busy during peak times but you never have to wait long for a shower to be free. For the price you pay you feel you are getting an excellent service I recommend this gym to anyone who is tired of overpriced, stuffy, peak priced gyms. For a refreshing gym that you feel pleased to be using try Pure in Spinningfields. Oh and did I mention most of the classes are included in your membership...bonus.
