Staffordshire University

Staffordshire University is a public university in Staffordshire, England. It has one main campus based in the city of three other campuses. In 1901, industrialist Alfred Bolton acquired a 2-acre site on what is now College Road and in 1906 mining classes began there. In 1907, pottery classes followed, being transferred from Tunstall into temporary buildings, in 1914 the building now known as the Cadman Building was opened as the Central School of Science and Technology by J. A. Pease, President of the Board of Education. A frieze over the entrance depicts miners. In 2013, the Library Conference room in the Cadman building was renamed the Alfred Bolton room. In 1915, a department was established for the commercial production of Seger cones used to measure and control the temperatures of ceramic furnaces, based upon research completed by the principal, Joseph Mellor. Grants from the Carnegie United Kingdom Trust in 1924 were used to develop the ceramics library and in 1926 the name of the institution was changed to North Staffordshire Technical College.

By 1931 extensions to the Cadman Building housed the Mining Department. A grant was awarded from the Miners’ Welfare Fund to fund the building work; the new extension housed the library, which by now had 35,000 volumes. By 1934 the college consisted of four departments: Engineering, Pottery and Chemistry. In 1939, new engineering workshops were occupied for the first time and the land opposite the Cadman Building was purchased. By 1950 Victoria Road changed its name to the site now extended over 12 acres; the Mellor Building and Experimental Production Block were constructed for the North Staffordshire College of Technology by 1960. Various faculty movements and further building work resulted in North Staffordshire Polytechnic being formed in 1970 with the merger of Stoke-on-Trent College of Art, North Staffordshire College of Technology, Staffordshire College of Technology in Stafford. In 1977, the polytechnic absorbed a teacher training facility in Staffordshire; the polytechnic developed traditional strengths of the component institutions, e.g. ceramics and sports education.

The mining department closed as result of the decline of coal mining in the 1980s. New subjects were developed. North Staffordshire Polytechnic was among only a handful of third-level institutions in the UK to offer International Relations as a dedicated degree; the 1992 UK government Research Assessment Exercise placed the International Relations Department as the highest-rated in the institution. In 1988, the institution changed its name to Staffordshire Polytechnic. In 1992, it became Staffordshire University, one of the new universities based on former Polytechnics; the university has two main campuses, four smaller campuses, extensive links with National and transnational academic institutions. The two main campuses and the Lichfield campus all have purpose built Business Villages, having furnished small office spaces with internet access. In the 2012/13 academic year, the Vice-Chancellor, Michael Gunn, announced that a consultation exercise would be undertaken on whether to keep both campuses open or whether to close one.

As yet no definitive conclusion has been made and the ultimate result will based on many factors including student feedback and financial viability. It is anticipated; the university announced the result of their Estates Strategy on 30 January 2014 after the Board of Governors met at a special meeting to decide on it the night before. The decision was made to move the computing and entertainment technology courses to the Stoke-on-Trent campus by 2016 and health courses in Stafford will remain; the main campus is in Shelton, Stoke-on-Trent, offers law, sciences, applied computing, arts, design and media production courses. These are split into two areas, one on College Road, the other on Leek Road. A new Science and Technology facility was opened in 2012 as part of a major redevelopment adjacent to Stoke-on-Trent railway station; the Mellor Building on the College Road campus housing science teaching, has been refurbished to become the new home of the School of Engineering in 2013 and of Applied Computing, which moved from the Brindley Building in 2013.

A large section of the campus is supported by the university's free wireless connection. The Stoke campus features its own student nightclub called the "LRV" short for the Leek Road Venue; this nightclub hosts a variety of student nights on various days of the week but its main open nights are on a Wednesday and Friday. A public film theatre is situated on the side of the Flaxman building on College Road, which shows mainstream and independent films on a regular basis to an audience of up to 180 people, as well as being used for large lectures. In 2006, a new TV studio facility was opened by former BBC Director General Greg Dyke in the Arts and Design faculty building on College Road, Stoke; the new £ 1 million development features industry specification equipment. The university wants to develop a partnership with Stoke-on-Trent College and Stoke-on-Trent 6th Form College and with the co-operation of the local education authority and the city council, a "University Quarter" in the urban area to the north-east of St

Good Books International

Good Books International is an online bookstore based in New Zealand. Since its foundation, the company has operated as a non-profit; the profits donated to Oxfam are invested in projects throughout the world to reduce poverty. Dr. Jane Cherrington setup Good Books NZ in early 2006, she worked as Chief Executive of the Mental Health Foundation in New Zealand. She works in advertising as head of brand strategy for String Theory; the initial offering was an online bookstore. Good Books International signed a partnership with Oxfam to donate the company's profits from book sales to joint venture projects with the charitable foundation; the company received critical acclaim in 2012 for their viral online video, promoting the Good Books ethos. It compared how other large online booksellers made huge profits on book sales while other parts of the world struggled; the advertisement went on to win a gold and bronze award at the London International Awards that year, as well as many others including the coveted D&AD Yellow Pencil for Film Advertising Craft.

The digital campaign known as "Good Books Great Writers Series", where each short film attempts to creatively tell the Good Books story in the style of the world's most famous literary talents, hand-picked directors donate their skill and time, free of charge, to create films for the charity. The series had a follow-up advertisement in late 2012. Named ‘Havana Heat’, it was written as a steamy love letter to Good Books, in the bodice-ripping language made famous by Mills & Boon books. In 2014, it was announced that the non-profit had begun to work on a similar project with Oxfam Canada, as well as Oxfam New Zealand. During an interview, it was stated; the reason for the project's delay was due to the innovative nature of the project. Good Books again received attention in 2015 for the third installment of the Good Books Great Writers Series, We Need to Talk About Alice, an ethereal rendition of Alice in Wonderland, a finalist in the 2016 AXIS Awards For Good category. Good Books have run a number of schemes with Oxfam to provide charitable donations to fund projects in partnership with Oxfam.

Each time a book is purchased from Good Books, a percentage is given to Oxfam to fund these projects. Much of the work carried out by the projects has been based in the Oceanic regions of Asia including, East Timor and Papua New Guinea, their work varies dependent on the region, but includes clean water, agriculture development and access to education. As part of the scheme, Good Books International suggests that customers sign up to Oxfam's donation service

Hedley Hi-V (New York City Subway car)

The Hedley Hi-V was a New York City Subway car class built between 1910 and 1911, which were motor cars, in 1915 an order for trailers that were numbered 4223-4514. All were built by the Standard Steel Car Company, Pressed Steel Car Company, Pullman Company; these were the first cars built with center doors. They were the last high voltage cars built for the system as all subway cars delivered afterward had low voltage since high voltage cars were a hazard to both the train operators and track crews, one of a few reasons why the TA was in a rush to get rid of these cars by the mid 1950s with the R17, R21, R22 cars; these cars ran on both the West Side and Broadway-7th Ave lines and ran with both the Gibbs and Deckroof Hi-V cars until they retired by 1959 along with what was left of both the Hi-V Gibbs and Hi-V Deckroofs, which were in small numbers by that point. Several cars were used in work service until 1960-1961 before getting scrapped. Cars 3712 and 3737 were used as welding cars. 3700-3701 became work motors.

A fleet of cars numbered 4015-4024 operated on the Times Square shuttle line. The Hedley's standard car body would be incorporated into another fleet of cars known as the Lo-V fleet, which were built from 1915 to 1925. None of the Hedleys were saved, as it was not thought of at the time to preserve for future generations.
