    I’ve heard of cases where students get expelled, because they were caught trying to purchase. Even if you want to use smart drugs, be smart about it and purchase from an online pharmacy:

    They ship discreetly to you, and nobody else has to know.

    It certainly seems safer than Adderall, and nootropics can’t assist in keeping the brain healthy, much like how people take vitamins mostly for their ‘body’. A comparison of the two:

  3. If any students would like to talk about their thoughts and feelings without judgement or being told what to do, they are always welcome to contact the active listening service, Nightline. While not the same thing as the Open Door Team, Nightline can be a useful source to get things off your chest and is open from 8pm-8am every night, when other services are closed. They are 100% confidential and respectful of anonymity and you can visit them at the New Building by the Charles XII pub, phone them on 01904 323735, instant message them at or email them at [email protected]. They’re also available at the Ron Cooke Hub Pod 3 on Mon and Thurs 8pm-11:30pm.

  4. “The ‘gay men aren’t oppressed’ one equally so.”

    That’s ridiculously out of context, and actually wrong. The motion never said gay men aren’t oppressed.

    Hi Amy,
    I’m student at Cardiff University.
    We’ve been having similar problems with Circuit, and I believe that they may be in breach in contract. Students are loosing money and not getting the service they need.
    Would I be able top contact you privately?

  6. Hi all.
    Just to confirm that this leak was a conflation of an old draft of a letter and a new list of potential signatories for easy data entry. As a result some people have their named signed to a letter that does not entirely represent them.

    Just thought I’d try and clear things up. I cant speak entirely for everyone in the campaign. Each nams is there for their own reasons.

    But a brief summary of reasons from our group:

    Malia’s election was damaging.

    The YikYak policy was laughable.

    The ‘gay men aren’t oppressed’ one equally so.

    Continued refusal to listen to disabled student’s requests for access at conference. (i know a lot of anti nus people constantly laugh at the whole “jazz hands” thing, but cheering/whooping/clapping during a speech makes it difficult/impossible to hear for those hard of hearing, and there are so many requests for people to not do that during conference and they are constantly ignored. That’s a shitty thing for a lot of the NUS to do.)

    Costs ~50k a year

    No OMOV

    Having elections in the conference makes policymaking biased and heated as so much of it becomes posturing from people trying to become sabbs.

    Some in our campaign want to Leave permanently. Others (like myself) are more interested in leaving but with returning on certain conditions, like OMOV, separation of policy conf and elections, removal from party political things (supporting jezza and fighting lib dems last GE(nus spent 40k on an anti lib dem campaign), I mean as a labour man through and through I personally am okay with these things but like come on our uni needs better student support and higher staff student ratios not unseated LD mps) etc…

    Just thought I’d give a more accurate update of our position.

    And to reiterate ciaran. If you have a reason to doubt membership and would like to consider the debate just let us know.

    These things have to be discussed.

  7. Just to add to this, if you’re in any way interested in the disaffiliation campaign, please come to YUSU’s AGM on Monday or message one of Ciarán Morrissey; Bethany Wright; Stephen Harper; Jayh Karia; Allie Nawrat; or Uday Maudgil on Facebook.

  8. I disagree with the comment above. The article makes clear that this individual was able to provide more than enough information confirming their identity; and was still subjected to what sounds like a pretty traumatic and public humiliation. Our society has been slow to accept change with regards to equality and open-mindedness over LGBT persons. I hope this article helps raise awareness: Love does not know gender, we are all human and so should treat each other with common courtesy and respect. The struggle is real!

  9. Absolutely nothing wrong with the bouncer’s actions. He is legally obliged to make sure you are of age and the same person on your ID. Stop trying to twist this into some kind of homophobic story. For all he knows you’re a 16 year old kid trying to get into a bar with someone else’s ID and a costume on as an excuse. The bouncer was just doing his job..

  10. Snitches from Netherlands Groningen add them: Hong Hoa Nguyen (also called Foeboe a Vietnamese guy leading a undercover SNITCH Volkswagen gang), Pham Nguyen (known as Famos his little brother), Janine Ruby Hellen Lindveld (Indonesian Indian alike girl), Michael Teunis Adriaan Vos (Mike a Australian Dutch guy) and Darell Foko Oehlers a fat balled Dutch guy
