The number of private school pupils is on the increase at seven out of the top ten universities in the UK, according to new research from the University of Exeter. Oxford was one of three where their number has declined.Of the ‘traditional’ subjects such as engineering, sciences and languages, 24% of private school students go on to study these at university, while only 17% of state schoolers make this choice.These results will dishearten ministers who have pumped money into education to attempt to close the gap.Not all was doom and gloom, however, as Oxford, Exeter and UCL all recorded an increase in state school students. Numbers have been rising since 2003/4, but Chloe Wildman, an Oxford student who went to state school pointed out “by studying more diverse subjects more students might stay in education, even if they didn’t go to a top ten university, which is a positive result.”

“It could only happen in a place like Fowey. I think it’s a lovely idea and I hope he never gets discovered”Belinda Weatherall, a boutique owner in Cornwall, on The Phantom Bread Maker of Old Fowey Town, who has been leaving personally addressed parcels of bread on people’s doorsteps. Killjoy police have advised people not to eat the bread”I told my wife I was only going away for three days, but she would go and bake me two whopping big cakes. It will take me a week to eat one. Just look at the size of them”what author Jan Petersen told Customs guards in Nazi Germany, while smuggling out a manuscript of his book, Our Street, baked into two cakes, which told of the struggle under fascism. It went on to become a million-issue seller and was republished by Faber last week”She joked she was trying out the competition, which actually, she was. [Her brother] James thinks there’s a market for an upmarket cake shop which also sells all the bits and bobs you need to make cakes at home”a “source” tells The Mail why Prince William’s girlfriend, Kate Middleton, went into the Love Bakery on the Kings Road, London, and ordered one of every cake

David Cooper, 55, from Blyth, Northumberland, was a director of CFM Transport Ltd (CFMT), based in Chester Le Street, Tyne and Wear.Mr Cooper was a Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGV) mechanic and driver for around 30 years before seeing an opportunity to move into the road haulage business, incorporated CFMT and began trading in 2011.The business grew and expanded into European markets and on advice, set up two further companies, CFM Cargo Logistics Ltd and CFM Continental Ltd.In early 2015, however, one of the company’s vehicles was involved in an accident abroad and while waiting for the insurance claim to be settled and the companies’ petroleum tax refund entitlements, Mr Cooper submitted false VAT claims in order to keep the companies afloat.Mr Cooper’s wrongdoing was discovered and with the prospect of criminal proceedings for tax-related fraud, he opted to cease trading.Following the end of the liquidation process, the Insolvency Service looked in to Mr Cooper’s role in the collapse of the companies. Those investigations revealed that Mr Cooper had knowingly created and submitted false returns in order to claim VAT to which the company was not entitled.On 8 October, the Secretary of State accepted a disqualification undertaking from David Cooper, after he admitted knowingly creating and submitting false returns to reclaim Value Added Tax to which the company was not entitled. His ban is effective from 29 October 2018 and lasts for 11 years.Robert Clarke, Chief Investigator for the Insolvency Service, commented: act as a director of a company take part, directly or indirectly, in the promotion, formation or management of a company or limited liability partnership be a receiver of a company’s property YouTube Media Manager 0303 003 1743 In a separate investigation, Mr Cooper was convicted of “being knowingly concerned in fraudulent evasion of VAT”, totalling £148,228 and on 15 June 2017 he was sentenced to 16 months imprisonment, suspended for 24 months.Notes to editorsDavid Cooper is of Blyth, Northumberland and his date of birth is June 1963.CFM Transport (Company Reg no: 07828520)A disqualification order has the effect that without specific permission of a court, a person with a disqualification cannot: Disqualification undertakings are the administrative equivalent of a disqualification order but do not involve court proceedings.Persons subject to a disqualification order are bound by a range of other restrictions.The Insolvency Service administers the insolvency regime, investigating all compulsory liquidations and individual insolvencies (bankruptcies) through the Official Receiver to establish why they became insolvent.

Last month, Asheville, NC native and resident Warren Haynes announced a brand new symphonic event dubbed Warren Haynes Presents Dreams & Songs – A Symphonic Experience, set to debut at Asheville’s Thomas Wolfe Auditorium on Saturday, March 16th. The hometown event will see Haynes teaming up with the Asheville Symphony Orchestra, keyboardist John Medeski, bassist Oteil Burbridge, and drummer Jeff Sipe.Due to popular demand and a quick sell-out, Haynes has extended the debut of his symphonic experience, as the all-star cast of musicians will now offer up a second helping of Warren’s arrangements on Sunday, March 17th, also at the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium.The announcement on Thursday via press release notes that fans should look for Warren and the ensemble to offer, “a symphonic take on his classic, career-spanning material,” as well as material from Gov’t Mule, Allman Brothers Band, Grateful Dead, Haynes’ solo catalog, and more.Although Warren has never devoted the entirety of a symphonic show to focus in on his own music, he is no stranger to playing beside a symphony. In years past, Haynes has paid his respects to the Grateful Dead master himself, Jerry Garcia, with a unique symphonic tribute highlighted by Warren rocking out on Garcia’s Tiger and Wolf guitars.A fan pre-sale will begin next Tuesday, February 19th at 12 p.m. (EST). Tickets go on sale to the general public on Thursday, February 21st at 10 a.m. (EST) here.For more information and a full list of Warren Haynes’ upcoming tour dates, head to his website.

With finals approaching, many students will begin to receive packages of study snacks and treats not only from their family, but also from their hometown’s Notre Dame Club. The Notre Dame Clubs, located in major areas around the country, are largely made up of alumni. Aside from the highly anticipated finals packages, many students do not know the scope of what these clubs actually do. Susan Darin Hagan, an administrator of the Notre Dame Club of Pittsburgh, said that their send-off event for incoming freshmen each summer is key to teaching students about the Club’s existence. “We try to connect with students at the very beginning of their experience,” Hagan said. “That way the students start realizing there is such a thing as an alumni club and it’s active.” For sophomore Jill Giunco, the send-off she attended for the Notre Dame Club of the Jersey Shore helped ease some of her fears about attending school in the fall. “I really felt more comfortable about the ND community after seeing other kids in the same position as I was,” Giunco said. “I even met some people I’m still friends with today.” Hagan said the Pittsburgh club’s most popular service is the buses that they provide for the five school year breaks. “I think the students like it, but I know the parents love it,” Hagan said. “Cleveland is on the way to Pittsburgh, so I’ll even have students from Cleveland asking if they can pay the full amount and be dropped off along the way.” Another service the Pittsburgh club provides for the parents is assisting them in buying tickets for football games. Hagan said parents are only offered tickets for certain games, so the club tries to help them find tickets if the would like to visit the University a different weekend. Another main event for the Pittsburgh club is its networking evenings. The club brings in professionals from various fields to meet current students, Hagan said. “It’s not solely to find jobs but really more to make some contacts, maybe pass out a business card and get some questions answered,” Hagan said. Katherine Piscopo Stein, president of the Notre Dame Club of Long Island, said her club also tries to help students with networking. “If students want internships or jobs, we encourage them to contact us,” Stein said. “It really depends on what the student needs, but we’ll do what we can.” The Notre Dame Clubs are also involved in organizing the University’s Summer Service Learning Programs. Hagan said this is one of the most time-consuming activities the Pittsburgh Club organizes. “We tailor our SSLP to the actual students and what their desires are,” Hagan said. “We spend time convincing places to allow our students to come in and work for eight weeks.” For the Long Island Club, Stein said most of their SSLP students are Long Island natives. “We can’t really dorm someone here so in the past we’ve usually gone with students who have a place to stay,” Stein said. Additionally, the Long Island Club sponsors pizza breaks during study days and activities for students to participate in while at home, Stein said. These events in New York take place not only over the summer but also over breaks. “Two years ago when Notre Dame [basketball] played St. John’s, we did a big event since it was over winter break,” Stein said. “All the current students were invited.” While still at school, students are looking forward to pizza from the clubs during finals week. Sophomore Chris Carr said he enjoys receiving packages from the Notre Dame Club of Detroit during finals. “It’s just a nice thing to get rid of some of the stress from finals and studying,” Carr said.

The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) is teaching all of us about an old floral favorite that needs to be brought back to the garden: cosmos. I see them along Interstate 16 starting around mile marker 98 going north, and the “naturescape,” if you will, is amazing.If you have ever wondered, “Do those specialty license plates pay off?” The answer is yes, and of course, on display. What is even more exciting is that the future is bright for these types of floral plantings. GDOT is revved up on planting pollinators along the highway system, and this should have everyone doing the happy dance.Oddly, this is coinciding with the best butterfly year I have ever seen at the Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens at the Historic Bamboo Farm in Savannah, Georgia. Here we are in early November and the butterflies are uncountable and bees are everywhere. So while some may be stirring the pot for gloom and doom, it is exciting in Georgia.But let’s go back to the cosmos. Should you somehow be thinking that I am referring to orange cosmos, I am instead touting the Cosmos bipinnatus. This cosmos is native to Mexico and is related to coreopsis and rudbeckias. It is the quintessential cottage garden flower and brings in the pollinators.It is so good that the University of Georgia has put them in their promotional seed packs labeled the “Pollinator Blend.” The pack states the “pollinators will make a beeline to your garden when you plant this beautiful flower mix.”These cosmos have daisy-like flowers 2 to 4 inches wide in shades of burgundy, pink, lilac and white with orange centers, and they are borne on stems of airy, fern-like foliage for weeks on end during the growing season. As GDOT and UGA would testify, these are easy to grow from seed. In fact, they are so easy to grow from seed, you can sow successive plantings to have blooms the entire growing season, especially if you want to have a bounty of flowers for the vase too.While those in Georgia are still enjoying the blooms, almost everyone will be planting next spring. You might get lucky and find nursery plants, but seeds seem to be readily available. Plant your seeds or nursery-grown transplants into loose, well-drained soil. Fertility need not be high for this Mexico native. Seeds germinate in five to seven days with blooms, bees and butterflies in eight to 10 weeks. Thin the seedlings or space transplants 12 to 36 inches apart depending on your variety.Yes, there are varieties like the 1936 All-America Selections Award Winner ‘Sensation’ that tops out in the 4- to 5-foot range. I promise you’ll love it like they did 80 years ago. But if you are into the more diminutive cosmos, then you might want to try the 2-foot-tall ‘Sonata,’ which was a Fleuroselect Award Winner. There are plenty of others to try as well.Although considered an annual, the cosmos gives a perennial-like performance by reseeding, which is perfect for the highway system and your pollinator garden too. These are tough plants, so water sparingly but when you do, water deeply, training those roots to go deep. Your volunteer seedlings may look a little different than what you originally planted when it comes to height, but they will nonetheless be dazzling.Our promotional UGA Pollinator Blend seed packet has purple coneflowers, coreopsis, rudbeckias, liatris and salvias, which should make any bee, butterfly or hummingbird ecstatic. To me, the only other prerequisite might be a white picket fence. That is a little tongue-in-cheek, but it would sure set up a nice photo.If GDOT can have success with cosmos, you can too. I hope you’ll give them a try next spring.Follow me on Facebook under “Norman Winter ‘The Garden Guy.’” Learn more about the gardens at www.coastalgeorgiabg.org/.

Like many religious celebrations, Easter is one of those holiday’s that can get you into trouble. Sure, the moveable feast has great importance in the Christian theology, but not everyone adheres to the Christian theology, or they do to varying degrees. Too much religion in your celebration and you may turn some people off; too little and you may turn off other people. Eh, that’s just the way it goes. Throw on your best pastel colored button down, grab some Peeps and roll with the punches, because it’s just another opportunity to hang in the yard with family, friends and watch kids run get hopped up on Cadbury Cream eggs and sprint around in a circle.The main event of any Easter celebration has to be the Easter Egg Hunt, but there is also the sunrise service to think about. You may not be hitting church this Easter Sunday, but you can still get some spirituality in by having a sunrise service of your own. Get up early on Saturday – rain in the forecast for Sunday so don’t risk it – and hike to the top of a mountain during sunrise to give your soul a boost. People on the trail always say, “This is my church.” Well, now is the time to prove it.We recommend Old Rag in Shenandoah National Park. The views from the top are spectacular, especially during sunrise. This is one of the most popular trails in the park, but you’ll have the opportunity to hike it with minimal crowds, and there may even be is some snow at the top to add an extra element of adventure to the outing. Speaking of extra adventure, make sure you pack some sort of traction device for your shoes, either some slip on studs or spikes, and be extra careful towards the top of the climb. Ice on rocks can make for a particularly dangerous, slippery situation, so be sure and use your best judgement when scrambling around. Having fun means coming back in one piece, guys.It may take you a little longer to reach the top, but it will be worth it when the warm sun shines on your face, and washes away your sins…I mean worries…washes away your worries.View Larger Map
