Bag bother at the Bod

first_imgA new security policy has been implemented at the Bodleian Library, sparking fears that precious library materials will become endangered.For the first time, readers’ bags are no longer being checked by staff on arrival at the central Bodleian Library. The previous admission policy of bag searching upon entrance was described by OUSU as “extremely strict and supported by students”.Yet, in a radical break from past procedures, porters will now allow readers to enter the Upper and Lower Reading rooms without presenting their bags for inspection.This new and controversial policy has not been introduced in all the Bodleian Library buildings. Vigilant checks are still being carried out on arrival and exit in the Radcliffe Camera. Critics argue that this supports their claims that the new policy has been introduced for the wrong reasons.According to a Bodleian source, the recent security changes were introduced in response to severe funding cuts and staff shortages rather than fresh ideas about library security.However, a spokesperson from the Bodleian Library wavered any suggestion that the entrance policy was changed in response to a lack of funding. He said, “There is no recruitment freeze in place at the Libraries. Like many other public institutions, the Libraries, as part of the University of Oxford, are acting responsibly in the current economic climate by identifying where savings can be made, or where funding can be reallocated, to provide the best possible services for students and readers.”Students have expressed fears that hazardous materials could be brought into contact with invaluable reading materials if security becomes slack at the world-famous library.Robert Bourne, a History student at St. Hugh’s, expressed his concerns that both historical documents and students alike may be put at risk if bags are no longer checked on.He said, “This is absolutely disgraceful. The university simply must step in to protect students. The potential for inter-library carnage is quite unprecedented.”But not all students are so perturbed by the news. A second year History of Art student said, “I’m glad they have abolished the searches because I do enjoy a cheeky can of coke and a cupcake while I work, and now I can enjoy these comforts without the stress of sneaking them in.”The Bodleian Library assures readers that it takes the security of its collections and its buildings very seriously. Commenting on the recent changes, a spokesperson from the Bodleian Library said, “We keep the level of security under review, with the advice of the University Marshal. “A range of security measures are in place across library sites. We will not comment on specific library locations.”last_img read more

PHOTOS: J.E.D.I. (Jazz Electronic Dance Improvisation) At Maison In NOLA 4/29/18

first_imgLoad remaining images J.E.D.I. (Jazz Electronic Dance Improvisation) | 4/29/18 | Photos: Ronald Valle On Sunday, April 29th, J.E.D.I. (Jazz Electronic Dance Improvisation) burned the house down in New Orleans at Maison for a special show during Jazz Fest, making for one serious jam session. The band is spearheaded by world-class drummer Aaron Johnston (David Byrne, Brazilian Girls), and features a different cast of rotating musicians for each performance. Sunday’s iteration included a core band of bassist Marc Brownstein (The Disco Biscuits), keyboardist Borahm Lee (Break Science / Pretty Lights Live Band), and saxophonist Ryan Zoidis, and featured special guest collaborations with trumpeter Benny Bloom (of Lettuce / The Shady Horns), guitarist Eddie Roberts (The New Mastersounds / Matador! Soul Sounds), vocalist Shira Elias (Turkuaz) fellow Byrne band members and percussion section—Davi Viera, Mauro Refosco, and Gustavo Di Dalva—as well as bassist Nate Edgar of The Nth Power and guitarist Jeffrey Lockhart.The late-night show quickly became a who’s who of rotating musicians throughout the night, bringing artists from across the musical spectrum to simply vibe off each other and create sweet music. Lee, Zoidis, and Edgar joined the maiden voyage of J.E.D.I. with Johnston back in late 2017, which went off into a galaxy far, far away. As a result of its environment and ever-growing energy, last night officially went into the furthest reaches of the musical universe.You can check out the photo gallery from last night’s show below, courtesy of photographer Ronald Valle.Live for Live Music is currently in New Orleans this year for Jazz Fest, putting on a series of late night and daze between shows at clubs across town. You can check out our late night guide for a comprehensive list of what New Orleans has to offer during Jazz Fest, and you can take a look at our own late night calendar below.last_img read more

Watch Breaking Biscuits Get Southern Fried At Purple Hatters Ball [Videos]

first_imgSetlist: Breaking Biscuits | Purple Hatter’s Ball | Live Oak, FL | 6.2.18The Horror (RJD2), Can’t Leave The Night (BadBadNotGood), Inside You (Eddy Henderson)> Robot Rock (Daft Punk), 1999* (Prince), Phantom Pt. II (Justice)*W/ Roosevelt Collier Breaking Biscuits brought their two great tastes–the Disco Biscuits‘ Marc Brownstein and Aron Magner together with Break Science‘s keyboardist Borahm Lee and drummer Adam Deitch (also from Lettuce)–for a deep cut set of electronica, jazz, funk and hip-hop covers at the 2018 edition of the Purple Hatter’s Ball. While the futuristic supergroup has only had the chance to collaborate a handful of times, they never fail to astound and cause the crowd to get down and dirty. Their set at the Purple Hatter’s Ball even included a sit-in with sacred steel master Roosevelt Collier who kicked their cover of Prince‘s “1999” to religious heights!All of this funky music was being made for the best of causes. The Purple Hatter’s Ball was founded to keep the memory of a fallen friend to the Florida music scene, Rachel Morningstar Hoffman, alive and well. Though the story of her death is a true tragedy, the way the community has rallied behind the efforts to ensure her fate never befalls another is one of the more moving stories in the festival world. You can donate to The Rachel Morningstar Foundation HERE and then check out the two extended clips of Breaking Biscuits jamming tunes from BADBADNOTGOOD, Eddy Henderson and Daft Punk below. Enjoy!Breaking Biscuits – “Inside You>Robot Rock” – 6/2/18 Breaking Biscuits – “Can’t Leave The Night” – 6/2/18last_img read more

Mice aren’t nice

first_imgOnce you’ve gotten rid of the little critters, can you relax and forget them? No. Keep looking. New little critters will find those tight spaces they love so well. By Mike IsbellUniversity of GeorgiaThe only way into the old mine behind my friend Tommy’s house in the north Georgia town of Belmont was to climb down an old tree that had fallen into the main shaft. From there, several tunnels led out like the spokes of a wagon wheel.With flashlights to light our way, Tommy, another friend Billy and I crawled, one after the other, as far as our bravery would allow.Sometimes we’d squeeze through passages so narrow we’d scrape our backs if we weren’t careful. Sometimes we’d crawl into passages with no room to turn around. But even now, tight places don’t bother me.The other day I was poking around the crawl space underneath the house. No, I wasn’t trying to relive those old boyhood memories. I was checking the foundation of the house.Rats!And I discovered in one corner, on top of the sill plate, a nicely constructed wad of insulation about the size of an orange. Darn! I’ve got a mouse nesting under here.I’ll bet you do, too. You just don’t know it.So what can you do to get rid of a mouse? Well, when you first see signs of mice, act immediately to kill the first immigrants. Don’t give them time to reproduce.What’s the best poison to use? I’d suggest you use traps instead. When you trap a mouse, you know you’ve got him. With poisons, often you never know for sure. Besides, you won’t have mice dying and stinking in out-of-the-way places if you use traps.How to use trapsPoisons have their place, but not in your home. Traps can work much better. Here’s how to use them: First, use plenty of traps. Put them along the wall where mice like to run. Make it so a mouse can’t travel more than 5 or 10 feet before it finds the trap, because mice don’t travel very far.Make it easy for the mouse to find the bait — put the end of the trap with the bait treadle on it, next to the wall. Bait the trap with cheese, peanut butter, bacon — anything tasty with a strong odor is good.last_img read more

A new CEO, a new vision for a New York credit union

first_imgWhen Visions Federal Credit Union($4.2B, Endwell, NY) initially invited Ty Muse to interview for the cooperative’s CEO position, Muse, who was satisfied with his role as CFO at a nearby credit union, declined.“I was a finance guy,” Muse says. “I was living near where I grew up and was making a difference in my community.”But after thinking it over, he saw the role for what it was: an opportunity.“How many large, strong credit unions only a few hours from my hometown was I going to come across that wanted to talk to me about becoming the CEO?” he says.Muse decided he wanted the job, and he took the helm on May 1, 2013.
