Pembroke students rescue Christ Church girl

first_imgA girl from Christ Church was found unconscious and with severe injuries after a night out.The second-year was discovered lying in the middle of Pembroke Street, bleeding from the head.She was with a fresher who was trying, unsuccessfully, to pull her up from the ground, whilst cars were driving past.They were discovered by two third years, Ashley Grossmann and Caroline Stevens, who were on their way back from the bar at about 11.30pm.Stevens described how, seeing that the two were in trouble, Grossmann went into the middle of the road and successfully carried the injured girl off the road.She said that the girl had appeared to have slipped and smashed her head on a drain, which was also drenched in blood, and was bleeding heavily from the back of her head.Stevens recounts that she and Grossmann were “a bit concerned” as the injured girl was not responding to anything and her breathing was “erratic”: “she didn’t know where she was or who she was”.Grossman and Stevens phoned for an ambulance and had to carry out first aid over the phone until more help arrived.The girl was taken to the John Radcliffe hospital and had to be kept overnight.Grossmann who saved the girl from the road last Friday said it was “no big deal” and that “any guy who saw it would have done the same”.A spokesperson for the Oxfordshire ambulance services warned of the dangers of drinking following the incident. She said, “all over the country, there have been peaks of activity during fresher’s week.”“We understand that people want to go out, have a good time and do whatever but they have to be careful“Our call rates have gone up in the last few weeks and drunken accidents really make the difference.”last_img read more

Why most millennials don’t go a week without Venmo

first_imgTwo years ago, I refused to use Venmo.Today, I don’t go a week without it. Most weeks actually involve five to six Venmo transactions.My personal change in thinking reflects what many credit union and bank marketers will find when marketing to millennials and their tech-native successors, Generation Z: convenience is everything.A recent FIS study found that 72 percent of all banking interactions today are digital, with millennials carrying the majority of that lead. Global Web Index says 68 percent of millennials prefer their mobile phone as their most important piece of technology, with nearly all online millennials owning a smartphone. Millennials want constant on-the-go access.I’ll be the first to admit I don’t fit most millennial stereotypes. I still keep my budget on an Excel spreadsheet and would prefer a personal life without social media. So, when Venmo came on the scene a few years ago, I didn’t want anything to do with it. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

This couple stepped over the road to find their perfect family home, but the time has come to move on

first_imgCarol and Peter Iliffe are auctioning their family home at Highgate Hill after 17 years. Photo: Annette DewCarol and Peter Iliffe found a clever way to keep moving costs down when they bought 37 Prospect Terrace, Highgate Hill, 17 years ago — simply shift 30 metres from your current home.“We rented a house across the road and the lady who lived here became a friend,” Mrs Iliffe said.“When the owners wanted to sell, she didn’t want to buy it so we negotiated, bought it and moved.”The couple have raised three children in the five-bedroom home, but after almost two decades of love and laughter, the time to downsize was upon them.“The kids loved it here — the closeness of the city and the freedom it gave them,” Mrs Iliffe said. “Of course they’d often bring home lots of friends from State High (school) for a swim because it’s so close.”She said despite being moments from the CBD, their location had proved surprisingly quiet.“You really wouldn’t think you’re this close to the city even though you’re only a few streets back from South Bank,” she said.The Iliffes renovated the home in 2006 so, as the children grew up, the family could spread out and enjoy the space.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus1 day agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market1 day ago“We basically split the two levels so they could have their friends over and not impact on our area too much,” Mrs Iliffe said.When she and Mr Iliffe wanted to relax away from the kids, they enjoyed their great outdoors.“The back deck — we’ve got big mango trees around there and a retractable awning so you can still look up at the stars,” she said.The couple are keen to downsize but haven’t decided on their next move, so they’re set to rent for six months.“It’s going to be hard, but it’s time for us to have a change,” Mrs Iliffe said.The house at 37 Prospect Terrace, Highgate Hill, is being auctioned Saturday October 28 at midday by Will Bertelsen of Ray White Brisbane CBD.Follow Kieran Clair on Twitter at @kieranclair undefinedlast_img read more

Meulensteen ready to keep the faith

first_imgFulham head coach Rene Meulensteen will return to Old Trafford on Sunday looking to play the attacking football he has been told to keep faith in by Sir Alex Ferguson. “We have to pick ourselves up, brush ourselves off and that is what we have done in the last couple of days and making sure we are in the best possible way to travel to Old Trafford on Sunday.” Despite their current troubles, Meulensteen insists he still has the full backing of club owner Shahid Khan, who he talks to on a regular basis. “We keep in good dialogue,” he said of his relationship with Khan. “He gives me his full support and we make sure we remain focused and optimistic, there are still a lot of games and points to play for and that is what I intend to do. “I’m fully aware we need to get results.” January signings Johnny Heitinga and club-record acquisition Kostas Mitroglou could both make their Fulham debuts, while fellow new recruit Lewis Holtby is likely to come back into the side. The Tottenham loanee was ineligible for the FA Cup defeat but Meulensteen has been very impressed with the Germany midfielder’s effect on his squad. “He is an absolutely class player,” he added. “He has lifted the whole place with his energy, he has such a bright personality and breathes his football. He has a great knowledge of the game and he has just been a very positive factor coming in.” Meulensteen worked closely with the Scot during the latter years of his time at Manchester United but departed in the summer when David Moyes was appointed as the Red Devils’ new manager. Since then Meulensteen has had a short, ill-fated spell in charge of Russian outfit Anzhi Makhachkala before being brought in by then-Fulham boss Martin Jol to help turn the Cottagers’ season around. He soon replaced Jol as manager at Craven Cottage and will go back to United with Ferguson’s backing. When asked how helpful it was to have Ferguson on the end of the phone, Meulensteen replied: “Very. Sir Alex Ferguson knows what I’m capable of. “He is the first man to reassure me and say ‘stick to your beliefs, you are capable of doing it’, and that is what I’m doing. “We will speak to each other about different things. We will chit-chat about other things, he has asked me but there is nothing in particular.” Fulham sit bottom of the Barclays Premier League, four points from safety and go into the clash at Old Trafford having lost 1-0 at home to Sky Bet League One side Sheffield United in their FA Cup fourth-round replay on Tuesday night. Meulensteen feels his players have shown the desire to bounce back from the defeat and start to move towards safety. “We all realise that it was not a good performance,” he said. “It is not the first time a Premier League side has stumbled over a Championship, League One or League Two team, that is what the FA Cup is for and where the charm comes from.
