A meeting of the Cabot Press Gang started off the week. It’s good to know we will have some interesting new Cabot-related stories coming out from the faculties over the next couple weeks.
I have now posted the videos from the AXA Volcanoes and Society Research Day which was held back in May. You can view videos on our brand new YouTube channel with videos of presentations by the amazing Kathy Cashman, Katsu Goda, Caroline Williams, Paul Valdes, Susanna Jenkins, Jonathan Rougier, and David Pyle. I have also added the videos to the main Volcanoes and Society page on the website where you can also download the powerpoint presentations.
The magazine mock-ups came through from Dirty Design. We have three different designs to choose from which has been extremely contentious! I have taken the magazine to several different groups of people to gauge opinion. The press gang, press office, geography admin office, myself and Philippa all liked a bold design. The hydrology group, other members of geographical sciences and a couple PA’s like a less bold design. I have therefore decided to make a compromise between the two most popular designs. I’m really excited to see the finished article.
Today is the last day of Gemma Simpson, an administrator in Geographical Sciences. I for one am very sorry to see her go as she has supported Cabot in a lot of ways over the last year especially with regards to finding rooms for meetings! Very many thanks Gemma and good luck!
