Top three places to travel to from Canterbury this Christmas

Canterbury is officially Christmas ready. The Christmas lights are on, illuminating the festive high street. The Christmas market stalls are up, and our everyday existence is fuelled by Costa’s gingerbread lattes. We’re on the home straight, people. We all have Christmas traditions that never get old, but why not spice it up a little this year? Try experiencing Christmas in a different country! Canterbury gives you easy access to a multitude of countries in central Europe; within 20 minutes on the train you can be at Ashford International, where you can board the Eurostar. So, whether you’re looking for…

Podcasts: The New Radio

If the internet is burying print journalism alive, then surely, you’ll find the old wireless in the same grave, just a few feet farther down. “Video Killed the Radio Star” probably played while the eulogy was being read. But you’d be wrong to think that radio is gone. We probably won’t ever find ourselves listening to crackling audio of a worldfamous broadcaster who smoked as he read the news, that’s probably disappeared for good. But what that presenter had to say hasn’t. In fact, we are living in the golden age of radio right now. We just call them…

A Collector of Penguins

During my travels in Scotland, I made it a mission of mine to explore the many old bookstores that hold such treasures as as an old orange D.H.

The first used bookstore I went to in Glasgow was Caledonia Books, it was centrally located, and had a beautiful window display. The room was small, maybe 25 feet wide by 15 long, and…

Over the past few weeks I’ve asked friends and family a question: when do you think we’ll first see a woman manage a Premier League team? It became a heavily debated topic, with some laughing and saying “not in my lifetime” rather jokingly but ignorantly as well, with others respectfully saying “I hope soon, I just don’t see it happening with the way the game is going”. It’s all a matter of opinion. No one can predict the thoughts and desires of a Premier League chairman when his club approach potential candidates for the Head Coach/Manager’s job. However, we…

Powerlifting: Raising The Bar Against Feminine Stereotypes

What if I told you I knew someone who could deadlift twice their body weight and squat 107.5 kilos? If your first impression is that this is a male athlete, then you couldn’t be more wrong. The person I am describing is a female, the captain of the UKC powerlifting team, Ana Re. Powerlifting is commonly thought of as a sport for males who can lift an enormous amount of weight, but it’s really a sport is also full of amazing, strong, and dedicated female athletes. I had the opportunity to sit down with Ana as well as Shona…
