Ede & Ravenscroft failed to send them within six weeks – and won’t give me a refund
I graduated from the University of Birmingham in early July. I had ordered photos from Ede & Ravenscroft which cost £60 plus £7 postage and packing. The estimated delivery was four to six weeks after the event. Six weeks later, the photos had not arrived. This was annoying as I was hoping to take them to my grandmother in Hong Kong during a visit in August. After many emails and phone calls, E&R only offered to refund the P&P At least two of my coursemates have not yet received their photos, either. If the photos were not irreplaceable, I would have requested a full refund a long time ago. Now all I can do is wait.

Anyone can be taught anything if they are inspired enough to pay attention – the key to remembering it is firing up the imagination
I first encountered memory techniques just after leaving secondary school. I’d been struck down by an illness, and had to spend a few months in hospital. Needing a project to escape the boredom of the ward, I was unable to resist diving into memory techniques when a friend brought me a book called Learn to Remember by Dominic O’Brien (the “eight-time world memory champion”, I was reassured to learn).
I still recall the delight at realising how simple and intuitive the ideas within it were. Enhancing your memory is first of all enhancing your imagination, O’Brien explained. You remember better by making things more memorable. Your memory – your capacity to learn, in other words – is, according to O’Brien, personal, improvable and much more interesting and colourful than education or traditional concepts of memory (such as it being akin to a warehouse or computer) might lead you to believe.Continue reading...
Closing the outstanding-rated outdoor nursery in Kent is at odds with the charity’s own campaign to get children to play outdoors, say parents
“Set your children free,” urges the National Trust’s campaign to get children outdoors. “Let them feel the wind in their hair, smell food cooking on an open fire, track wild animals and eat a juicy apple straight from the tree.”
But young children will no longer taste such freedoms in National Trust woods in Kent after a forest school judged “outstanding” by Ofsted was evicted by the charity.Continue reading...
Taxpayer-funded provider collapses into administration, putting 4,500 apprenticeships at risk
Police are investigating allegations of fraud at the government-funded apprenticeship provider 3aaa, which has collapsed into administration, putting 500 jobs and 4,500 apprenticeships at risk.
3aaa – which stands for aspire, achieve and advance – was placed into immediate administration after the Department for Education pulled all of its funding from the firm following an investigation. “Following our investigation we have referred our findings to the police, through Action Fraud [the UK’s fraud hotline],” a spokesperson for the DfE said on Friday. Derbyshire Constabulary confirmed that it is investigating the firm.Continue reading...
Mitchell Baker says firms should hire philosophy and psychology graduates to tackle misinformation
Technology companies need to diversify their hiring practices to include more people from backgrounds in philosophy and psychology if they want to tackle the problem of misinformation online, the head of one of the biggest internet charities has warned.
Mitchell Baker, head of the Mozilla Foundation, has warned that hiring employees who mainly come from Stem – science, technology, engineering and maths – will produce a new generation of technologists with the same blindspots as those who are currently in charge, a move that will “come back to bite us”.Continue reading...
