UN Anti Racism Day March, this Saturday.



March 13, 2018

Our trade union (UCU) has instructed its members in 61 universities – including UCL – to take strike action on 22-23, 26-28 Feb and 5-8, 12-16 March. On these days we won’t be doing any work related to our employment here. (Our pay will be deducted on each of these strike days.) UCU has also instructed members not to reschedule or make up for work lost on strike days. This action is part of a lawful industrial dispute over a proposal to make devastating and needless cuts to university pensions. The National Union of Students has issued a statement in support of this action.

Philip Hammond, Chancellor explains.

“It is almost certainly the case that by increasing participation in the workforce, including far higher levels of participation by marginal groups and very high levels of engagement in the workforce, for example of disabled people – something we should be extremely proud of – may have had an impact on overall productivity measurements.”

Fragmentation in DE HR

December 15, 2016

I am still playing and fragmenting and walking back and forwards through Deus Ex Human Revolution, and taking pictures (the image got reversed, long story…will flip it at some point). This week I have a cold, so DE: HR protagonist Adam Jensen has been mooching around Serif’s R and D facility again, taking pictures of the tools on people’s desks, clothes, and work place detritus.


Hands at the lab


Anyway so Adam was collecting images and he spent a while in the labs making pictures of the hands. Some angles made the hands look spookier than others, so we pondered this for a while…and ‘doink!’ – realized that all the hands are doing the universal sign for ‘monster’. This cheered me up.

Classic skipping zombie left, right monster hands move – about 1:30 in.

See also online signing guides and Bad Romance, Lady Gaga etc.

PS – I do appreciate that technically it might not be the universal sign for monster.
