Christ Church students protest early bop shut down

first_imgChrist Church students protested outside their JCR on Saturday night after their bop was shut down almost an hour early.Students were evacuated from the bop due to the sounding of a fire alarm at 11.15 pm. The JCR was not reopened, and a group of students gathered outside in protest.At the college party, triple vodka oranges – or ‘bop juice’ – were sold at a rate of four for £1 until 10.30 pm. The price was then increased to three for £1.Christ Church introduced bouncers for bops earlier this term and capped the number of students allowed inside the JCR at 175, for fire safety reasons.At Saturday’s bop, this number was further reduced to 130, with a ‘one in one out’ policy to prevent overcrowding. This led to the buildup of a queue outside the JCR.Those waiting in the queue were able to purchase drinks from a secondary bar set up outside, in preparation for the bop.Reportedly, drunk students protested the early shutdown, chanting abuse about the Junior Censor and attempting to reenter the JCR.After this proved unsuccessful, many made their way to an after-party in Peckwater Quad. However, that event was also closed down after fire alarms were sounded in the venue.One Christ Church second-year told Cherwell: “Having so much additional security is a little bit patronising, and treating people like children makes them act like children. I think it’s all a bit stupid.“It’s because they don’t want us to end up in The Sun again somehow.”Saturday’s incident follows a series of recent controversies surrounding Christ Church bops.At the college freshers’ bop earlier this term, up to 100 croissants were handed out to students in order to mitigate drunkenness. Many students also went topless in the JCR.Last Trinity term, a Christ Church student was banned from all JCR events after wearing a pillowcase resembling a KKK hood to a bop.The president of Christ Church JCR declined to comment.last_img read more

Restoration of Brady’s Dock

first_imgTo the Editor:When will the current Bayonne Municipal Council make any effort toward the comprehensive restoration of Brady’s Dock, including:1) Restoration of presently rotting dock deck, which continues to pose a public safety hazard.2) Restoration of presently rotting timber posts, which are located along the dock entrance-way.3) Restoration of four deteriorating wooden benches, which are located along the park Lexington Avenue entrance.4) Restoration of a large section of the vertical timber fencing, which is located along the eastern most terminus of the pier. The fence section had been lost as the result of the northeast storm named Sandy, which occurred nearly five years ago!The citizens of Bayonne deserve much better. GERALD R. SAVOlast_img

Tree Seedlings Giveaway in O.C. on April 1

first_imgLoretta Harris holds up two bayberry tree seedlings that she got during the 2018 seedling giveaway. Free tree seedlings will be available to Ocean City residents on April 1 as part of the New Jersey Tree Recovery Campaign. This program helps communities replace trees damaged or destroyed by Superstorm Sandy.From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday, April 1, residents will be able to pick up tree seedlings at City Hall (861 Asbury Avenue), the Ocean City Community Center (1735 Simpson Avenue) or the 46th Street Welcome Center (46th Street and West Avenue).Seedlings, available on a first-come, first-served basis, also come with instructions on how to store, care for, and plant them. The guides help residents choose the right place on a property to plant a tree while keeping in mind the tree’s full-grown size in the future. Residents should plant the seedlings within two days after pick-up in order to prevent the roots from drying out.The Ocean City School District also will distribute seedlings to students on Monday.The goal of the Tree Recovery Campaign is to distribute 600,000 tree seedlings to New Jersey residents over the course of six years. It is a joint effort between Ocean City, the New Jersey Forest Service, New Jersey Soil Conservation Districts, Sustainable Jersey, Arbor Day Foundation, BJ’s Wholesale Club, Canon, and FedEx.When properly planted and maintained, trees can be assets to a community. They improve the visual appeal of a neighborhood or business district, increase property values, reduce home cooling costs, remove air pollutants, and provide wildlife habitat, among many other benefits.For a list of all distribution locations across the state, visit www.forestry.nj.gov  or www.facebook.com/newjerseyforests.last_img read more
