Bad at any time, but tomorrow is the start of clearing when they mop up all the extra students they need to pay the bills.

Westminster planning to hamstring Welsh Universities
at 22:25 29 May 2020

'UK Government plans to limit the number of English students going to university in Wales'
https://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/education/uk-government-plans-limit-number-18

Above highlights planned temporary response to Covid-19 from Westminster. Confirmed student applications for next year so far are well down, as students want to defer because of the uncertainty around Covid. So Westminster's planned response is to safeguard English universities by capping the number of English students allowed entry to Unis here in Wales, protecting English admissions instead. Wales is threatening to retaliate, but obviously would be the loser based on sheer numbers.

All in it together? Are we f*ck. This is beyond simple politicking, it absolutely stinks.

(Background to this is that since the funding model changed to user-funded, student registrations are absolutely key to our universities. Student fees provide the majority of university income. Unis have done a lot already to cut costs in response to a natural fall in the numbers of 18 year olds in the UK over the last couple of years, including job losses. Now they face the impact of Covid on top - the bottom line is that less student equals less income equals job losses, with unis being some of the largest employers in Wales. This is also happening at a time when their 2nd most important income stream, research funding, is shrinking due to the idiocy of Brexit. Welsh unis we're the biggest beneficiaries of EU funding in the sector in the UK. It's a perfect storm that will have long lasting negative impacts on the universities and the communities they support).

Rabbits
at 20:49 25 Sep 2018

Has anyone here got or had a rabbit? I'm half thinking about getting one for my little girl's 8th birthday. She'd love one, but I'm under no illusions that I'd be the one having to take care of it (for now at least). I'm used to looking after stuff that needs regular attention (kept a tropical reef tank for years), so I'm happy with a daily routine. What happens when you go on holiday for a couple of weeks though? Neighbours, or is there such a thing as a rabbit kennel? And are they worth it for neutrals - am I and my misses likely to regret it?!

Any views/suggestions (sensible and Loyal's) welcome.

Seems a lot. https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/football-notebook-pozzo-turns-down-125m-bid-f

Are they really worth 3.5x us, albeit with a better tv revenue stream than when we were sold out?
