Jesse Rieser’s best photograph: footballers say goodbye to the game

the guardian - Wed, 19/09/2018 - 19:32

‘I’ve had hip surgery once, shoulder surgery twice, my left knee needs replacing and my back is ruined. This was their farewell to football – and mine too’

Football was everything to me in my teenage years. My father and grandfather played, so there was never any question that I would. But when I was offered football scholarships, I turned them down to study the arts. Coming back 20 years later to shoot the game I gave up for photography gave me a rush of nostalgia.

This shot is of the Vikings, a high-school team in Phoenix, Arizona. I chose this school because it was like the one I attended, with the same vast array of social, economic and ethnic backgrounds. I spent the whole season with the Vikings, getting to know the boys and their families. I realised how much the game meant to them – and how much it still means to me.

Oxford English Dictionary asks teenagers to explain modern slang

the guardian - Wed, 19/09/2018 - 17:28

OED wants young people to share their ‘particularly elusive’ language, as it evolves through media such as Snapchat and WhatsApp

The venerable Oxford English Dictionary has launched an appeal to teenagers, hoping they can help it get to grips with slippery teenage slang such as “hench” and “dank”.

Citing its aim to “record all distinctive words that shape the language, old and new, formal and informal”, the OED said that slang terms were “always challenging” for dictionary editors to track. Young people’s language today is “particularly elusive”, because terms change rapidly and communication methods such as WhatsApp and Snapchat have made it more difficult to monitor the changing vocabulary.

Other countries are proud of their universities. The UK must be too | Chris Husbands

Universities are on the defensive over policy and funding, but it’s time to reset the agenda – we need them more than ever

Since 1970, the world’s population has essentially doubled. That’s a striking figure in itself, but there’s another to set alongside it: enrolment in the world’s universities has increased six-fold.

In China, Africa, India and Latin America, new universities are being established and increasing numbers of young people are flocking to them. Participation in higher education in China has risen to over 45%. In South Korea, perhaps the world’s most technologically advanced economy, it’s above 70%. The world is becoming more educated.

'I'm a living manifestation of possibility': South Africa's emissary on disability

the guardian - Wed, 19/09/2018 - 09:00

Eddie Ndopu defied expectations as the first African with a disability to graduate from Oxford. Now he wants to be the first wheelchair user in space

Eddie Ndopu was diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy when he was two. His mother was told he wouldn’t live past five. But he defied the doctors and now aged 27 insists no child with a disability should be left behind. He became the first African with a disability to graduate from Oxford University. He describes himself as young, black, disabled and queer, and “a living manifestation of possibility – 90% of children with a disability across the developing world don’t have access to education … I don’t want us to just have the ramp, I want us to have the whole building.” He has just become a global ambassador for humanity and inclusion.

Oxford 'spends £108,000' to recruit each extra low income student

New figures reveal scale of challenge as pupils from independent schools still dominate admissions

Oxford University spends more than £100,000 for each additional student from a poor background it admits every year, according to a new analysis of its efforts to improve access.

Figures published in Prospect show that Oxford’s “cost of acquisition” for every extra student from a low-income area admitted since 2009 is £108,000. The data is based on Oxford’s record of admitting about 10 extra students from low-income postcodes each year between 2009 and 2016, spending at least £14m a year on access and widening participation as required by higher education regulators.

Universities must follow Glasgow and own up to their role in the slave trade | Afua Hirsch

the guardian - Τρίτη, 18/09/2018 - 20:49
The legacy of slavery in the UK should be studied, starting with universities acknowledging their own history

Pity our universities. They have become globalised into a competitive market, each one’s brand resting on the depth of its history, the accomplishments of its alumni, and the integrity of its intellectual rigour. What happens when these very features turn out to be in conflict? Take the University of Glasgow, for example, one of whose most historic figures, a former student and rector, went on to use his education to assist in the lucrative tax affairs of the slave trade. It’s hard to ignore the story of Robert Cunninghame Graham, receiver-general in late 18th century Jamaica, and owner of numerous slaves.
