Pelé - Everyone's favourite fraud

May
05

Pele is, detached from football, a Brazilian icon. He represents what is almost a Hollfywood story of a poor boy raised in the slums, making it as a star and to be fair, I could not even begin to fault the way in which he has made a name for himself and has become a global star with millions to his name. However what I would begin to raise issue with is not the fact that he was an immensely talented footballer – because he most certainly was – all I would argue is that he was nowhere near close to being amongst the best players of all time.

The weekend before last, I travelled to Donington Park with my dad for a spot of motor racing. More specifically we were watching the British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) and the other minor competitions that were acting as support races.

Mercury in retrograde: astronomers vs. astrologists

Apr
21

If you aren’t into astrology the way I am, you may not quite understand why you hear someone scream “oh no, Mercury is in retrograde again!” - looking as though they fear for their own existence.

We have been in retrograde since April 9th and will be until May 3rd, this isn’t the first time we’ll have a Mercury in retrograde period this year either.

A thick outside edge off 23-year-old Indian bowler Basil Thampi down to third man, and a nonchalantly trotted single. An anticlimactic way to become the first batsman to reach 10,000 runs in Twenty20 cricket, but there you go. Maybe it was nerves. He hit the next ball he faced off the same bowler over mid-off for six. That’s much more like it.

Court Reporting successes!

Apr
13

Congratulations to the many CfJ students who passed last month's NCTJ Court Reporting exam. Once again we had a pass rate of over 90% which is a terrific testament to the hard work you all put in over a very short time-scale. Lara Elcheik was top scorer with a stonking 86% with Elaine Loke and Charlotte Wardley also hitting the dizzy heights of the 80s. Well done all.
