Fruit machine by Andres Rueda


DISCLAIMER: This story was made up for University purposes only, and is enitrely false.

Night porter, Frank Stuart, was brutally attacked by two men when they broke into The Crown Hotel in Oxdown.

Mr Stuart, aged 51, found the two men breaking into a fruit machine yesterday morning. Between the two men, they carried a hammer and a knife which they used to torture Mr Stuart in the Cellar where they tied him up.

Inspector Paul Barron said that for half an hour they subjected Mr Stuart to an attack which could fairly be described as brutal torture. The men wanted to know where the safe keys were, but Mr Stuart refused to let on where they were. Mr Barron went on to say that one of the men cut Mr Stuart’s shirt into ribbons and later slashed him a number of times on the face and hands.

Mr Stuart was left gagged in the cellar until he managed to free himself. The manager of the Crown Hotel, Jeremy Bates, said that he thought Frank was a hero. Mr Bates also said that Frank knew perfectly well where the safe keys were kept but evidently was determined not to give in.

Mr Bates is offering a £500 reward for information which leads to the arrest and conviction of these robbers. Both men are described by the Oxdown Police as white, with local accents, with one being in his early twenties at 5ft 11in, and one about 30 at 5ft 4in. The younger man had a grey stocking mask over his head and was wearing a dark polo shirt. The older man was wearing a brown jersey and had long brown hair. He also had a knife in a sheath attached to his belt.

Mr Stuart has been admitted to St Mary’s Hospital in Oxdown with lacerations and severe bruising. His wife, Muareen, said she thinks he’s very brave.


How money was raised for Japan

In Uncategorized on March 25, 2011 at 11:40 am

On the 11th March, Japan was struck by the most powerful eathquake the country has ever had.

At an 8.9 magnitude, followed by a tsunami that has wrecked homes and lives,  the enormous disaster saw the whole world praying for Japan.

Unlike a lot of blogs and news sites at the moment, I am not going to be talking about the actual disaster, and how it has affected people living in Japan, because im sure everyone is already aware. What I do want to talk about, is how people around the world have come together in their own ways to help out people they have never met, for no other reasons but to save peoples lives.

I have seen many ways in which people have helped out, all different, but however big or small there help was, it was given, it really mattered. Millions of people have donated online to sites such as The Red Cross , or Global Giving,

 but there have been more interesting ways people have donated, such as;

Overall I think it’s lovely to see how people put in so much effort to raise awareness and raise money for people they have never met before.
It actually gives me more faith in the world!

Sunny times

I laugh so hard when the sun comes out to play, and everyone just gets naked.

I’m serious, a slight weather change, by about 5 degrees, gets the whole campus drunk on vitamin C.

I’m not being a pessimist, I love the sun, but NO it’s not time for daisy dukes and board shorts. It’s still March. Come on!

The future of Journalism?

In Uncategorized on March 9, 2011 at 9:44 pm

“Where is Journalism heading?”
“Will print journalism still be around when I graduate?”
“Why am I spending so much money on a degree that could eventfully…not give me a job?”

These are just SOME of the questions that are asked every day, by lecturers, students, your parents (They don’t want a waster for a child), and journalists in the field already. The problem is, the answer is point-blank “I don’t know!”
