Harlow Journalism students spent the evening showing their final work on stands at the Harlow University Centre at Harlow College. They all scrambled and rushed to put the final touches on their stands before the evening arrived, some students were adding more detail to the stand, others were adding handouts and others were looking for their additional technology to be used on the stand.   A stand on young people and style   Rebecca Edwards, one of the Journalism students, did a stand on “geek culture” and had a stand full of comics, figures, videogames and general geek apparel. She also had a laptop displaying her new website she had made which included articles on videogames and other geeky topics. She had the stand nearest to the stairs and will be the first stand people will see when walking into the exhibition, with plenty of eye catching stands and plenty of colour there is plenty to enjoy and many different topics to browse.

Robert Halfon addresses LGBT and Stow concerns before the vote

Robert Halfon, the conservative candidate for the Harlow consistency has said that he has “no problems with gay, bisexual or Transgender” and that he will “save The Stow” ahead of the general election. Seeking his 3rd win in an election Halfon talked about the negative press he had received after he the news he was confronted by a woman holding a sign saying he was against gay rights in a photo to which he was said to have left. He said this was simply a case of misinformation based on the fact he had voted against an act in Parliament in which the church would have to allow same-sex marriages.

Pet’s Corner prepares for a eggcellent summer

Harlow’s Pet’s Corner is getting ready for a massive increase in population. The center is currently incubating around 60 eggs which will have a survival rate of about 70% and 100% if looked after by the mother hen herself. Paul Griffiths, a member of staff at Pet’s Corner for 17 years, said “Mother Hen always knows best”. The process of incubation is carried out via a machine called an incubator which cradles and keeps eggs at the perfect temperature for their growth into hatching chicks. Pet’s corner incubates around 120 eggs a year in the spring and summer to allow for the greatest chance of survival. The farm starts the breeding process and begins collecting these eggs to hatch, any eggs that aren’t fit to be hatched are given to the other animals, after that they spend 21 days inside the incubator before seeing the world for the first time. The chicks actually have food inside their eggs which they are able to feed on meaning they will be fine for their first 24 hours and when they are light and fluffy they are ready to be moved to their next home. After that they are moved to large, well lit and well cared for cages inside the farm and are kept together with heated lamps to ensure they are warm enough and if any of the chicks are...
