Battle of the CSC Chairs
With Election Season looming ominously Live! Readers have been asked to vote for the best (looking) Clubs and Societies Committee Chair in the current Live! Poll. Asked to choose between the 'Big Five' of the ACC, AEB, SCC, RCC and OSC the competitors are the Satirical Sam Furse, Rambunctious Rachel d'Oliveiro, Predatory Peter Mabbott, Jocular Jenny Wilson and Euphemistic Eugene Chang.
Live! has promised to provide cake for the next Meeting of the CSC whose Chair attracts the most votes. Fuelled by the promise of sugary goodness, RCC Chair, Jenny Wilson has been taking hostages and forcing unsuspecting club and society officers to log onto the Live! website to vote. Currently in the lead with just under 50% will Jenny's fighting tactics win the race?
Catering Fails to Deliver
The Union has dropped table service on food served during the evenings for the foreseeable future. The new system whereby students order at the bar and have to collect their own food from the serving hatch has caused complaints to be lodged with Deputy President (Finance and Services), Christian Carter. An apparent lack of communication between the bar staff and the kitchen has often lead to estimations of preparation time being wildly off the mark. Hungry students are queuing twice for their food, gathering around the serving area waiting for dishes to be prepared after already jostling to order at the bar.
The DPFS responded saying this was due to the hoarding placed around the entrance to the kitchens during the Union Redevelopment. Carter argued that staff couldn't walk along behind the bar carrying plates of food as the space is too narrow and it would prevent the bar staff from doing their job efficiently. However, why serving staff cannot collect and deliver the food from the hot plates on the outside of the kitchen instead of the customers is so far unknown.
An email sent to all staff and students in the Huxley Building and Blackett Laboratory by the Building Manager contained some unfortunate wording. The email read:
"As part of the planned refurbishment of Blackett Ladies Toilet 818 the contractor is required to carry out some noisy activities in this toilet."
The activites are expected to last two hours leaving students to wonder if this was perhaps a little too much information.
