    No problem. It's so rare that I'm the first one to post news.

    I have a copy, and my friend may still have a copy (did when I posted). They're going in the recycling can since no one appears interested. I don't keep this stuff.

    I'm in the midst of completing my Masters degree. As of midnight tonight the Faculty Association at the University is going on strike. It seems that a labour disruption is inevitable. As you can imagine, I'm just thrilled.

    That sucks, E. Hope it doesn't last too long.

    Hah! Tell that to the Dean of a school with 35,000 students.

    Luckily post-secondary education is subsidized by the government here, so for undergrad + Masters I'm only looking at about $50k of debt. Not fun, but better than some of my American cousins who are looking at $150k+ just for an undergrad degree!

    At the eleventh hour - strike adverted!

    Mind you, now the support staff have their deadline at midnight tonight! The University really planned well when they had all their contracts ending at the same time. But at least classes will go on!

    It is not photoshopped. This photo shows "spare" cones waiting to be placed on it when the council remove the current one.

    You are just not there at the right time.



    This site shows lots of different cones on Wellington's statue. It cost the taxpayers lots of tax money for the council to remove it each day.

    The first photo is definitivery photoshoped. You can see the blur efect on the limits of the cone.
    The 2nd one looks real.

    I heard the other day on the BBC news, that the UK gov plans to increase the uni tuition fees.
    From ~3K up to ~9K.... and graduates will have the graduate fees to pay. 29-49% of their incomes, when they get more than 21K a year...

    For England, the maximum fees could be 9K. This would only be for the very top colleges.

    In Scotland there are no tuition fees.

    The final SKEMERs newsletter:

    Hello gang,

    Hope this email finds everyone happy and well. I am writing to let you know
    that this will be the final announcement that we send from SKEMERs. Michelle
    (LL) recently asked when the first mailing went out. That was October 19, 1995.
    It's been a great 15 year run.

    After this mailing, the skemers.com website will be closing down and your email
    addresses deleted from our records.

    There is a group on Facebook called "SKEMERs on Facebook" that you can search
    for and join.

    There is also a yahoo group that Jason Lavigne started. You can join there by
    following this link:

    http://groups.yahoo.com/group/SKEMERS/

    Thank you all for your support over the years. We have all appreciated it.

    Michele (on behalf of Chris and all the original Free Zone Committee)
    John

    I received that as well. I've never been a big SKEMER, but I liked getting the emails back when they used to put them out. It kind of made me sad for those who were more deeply involved in the group.
