Congratulations to Australia’s Golden Lawn Bowlers

I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Lynsey Armitage and Karen Murphy, the two ladies who won gold in the women’s pairs lawn bowls event at the Commonwealth Games. The won gold is a thrilling and convincing show of power and excellence, overcoming Scotland 11-7, 14-3 in the final.

Lawn Bowls is a magnificent sport, and I am glad that it is receiving the profile it deserves by being a part of the Commonwealth Games.

Well done Lynsey and Karen!

It is worth noting that Australia got a medal in each of the Lawn Bowls events, with another gold going to the Mens Triples team.

Wayne Mac on Mix 106.3 Right Now!

Wayne Mac is currently on Mix 106.3 cohosting the “Cold 30” program…there is a webstream on the mix website for those who are out of town.

Edit: Whoops, forgot to mention that Wayne’s playing hits from 1977! Doing a great job too…you’d never know he left radio.

Further Update: The number one song from the week of July 13, 1977 was “Walk Right In”.

Cafe Review: Cafe Yala

Cafe Yala is located on the Reid CIT Campus, and has become a regular place of coffee consumption for me. Quite simply, the coffee is great, and as a student I get a discount, having an excellent $2.40 flat white in between classes is brilliant, in fact when I rang Kris McKenzie on 2CC last week, I was sitting at one of the outdoor tables enjoying a cup of coffee.

Yala also has a small selection of food, mostly muffins, of these I would have to recommend the blueberry muffins, as I just love blueberries. I can’t recall the price of them, but I do know that they are delicious.

Yala is open to everyone, but CIT Students (and staff as well I think) get a discount.

Samuel’s Multiple “O-Meters”

You may have noticed the recent suggestions from some people that I should bring back to Coffee-Cup-O-Meter and the Stepometer.

Well, it’s funny you mention it, as this has been on the cards for quite some time. I have every intention of bringing these back, but it should be noted that they are special features, and only appear occasionally. The stepometer was last in session around the middle of last year…and Steppy is ready and raring, so the stepometer will probably be back very soon. I will probably bring back the coffee-cup-o-meter soon as well.

Stay tuned for details.

Editorial Echoes #7

Editorial Echoes #7 is online and ready for download. Today Samuel looks at the possibility of the HECS (Higher Education Contribution Scheme) being extended to TAFEs.

Samuel will be out and about at various times of the day with his digital notetaker at the Reid CIT campus, and possibly in Civic, gauging public opinion on the matter…just look for the person wearing the Editorial Echoes logo. Samuel will include some (or maybe all depending on the number) of the responses in tomorrow’s Editorial Echoes.

Alternatively, if you have a view on the issue (preferably 30 seconds or less), email it as an MP3, Wave, or Ogg Vorbis to
Emails over 10MB will bounce.

The episode can be downloaded from here.
