Baby Bar 30 Walton St (01865) 515910 Baby Bar is one of those amazing places where you arrange to meet a friend for coffee in the afternoon, and find yourself emerging several hours later, having whiled away the hours in an excellent atmosphere accompanied by delicious cocktails and fantastic food, lulled by laid back yet upbeat music. Baby offers a huge selection of tempting cocktails – there is always at least one house special. As ever, it is not just the drinks you are paying for, but the surroundings, and baby is one of the best bars/restaurants in Oxford in terms of ambience and staff – it is relaxed, unpretentious and has excellent service, as well as benefiting from a terrace overlooking Walton street. It is idyllic to sit on an early summer’s evening with cocktail in hand, watching the world go by. Baby serves delicious food – it is testament to the tantalising nature of the menu that we went in for a drink, had a glance at the menu, and could not resist what was on offer. It is just the right size, with enough choice to please everyone, but not so much that you are overwhelmed; overall it fits in with the ethos of bar baby – simple, classic food with a modern twist. I had spaghetti with grilled gambas prawns in a lime coriander and chilli sauce, and my friend had steak with mashed potato – both were excellent. Other delights on offer include tuna rostis with mango salsa, lamb, fish of the day, pizza, as well as various salads, side dishes, starters, puddings, and there is even a children’s menu and breakfast. It is quite expensive at £10- £14 for a main meal, and about £5-£6 for breakfast, but definitely worth it for a special occasion. Overall Baby Bar definitely needs to be visited, and having been there once there is every chance that you will become a regular part of the clientele, enticed back by the excellent food, cocktails, atmosphere and service.ARCHIVE: 2nd week TT 2004
Oxford archaeologists are to begin work on recovering the remains of the Australian and British soldiers who fell in the Battle of Fromelles in July 1916.The mass grave at Pheasant Wood was discovered in May 2007 by archaeologists form the University of Glasgow. It is believed that German soldiers buried up to 400 men on this site, which thought to be the largest modern mass grave not related to genocide.A major operation to disinter the bodies and individually bury them will commence this Monday.Oxford Archaeology has been drafted in to carry out the excavation and recovery work by the Commonwealth War Graves Committee, an independent, internationally funded organization established in 1917 by Royal Charter to mark and maintain the graves and official memorials of the Commonwealth Service personnel who died in either of the World Wars.The first step of the task involves identifying the bodies using DNA techniques. It was common practice amongst many of the German soldiers to remove the dog tags of fallen soldiers, and so the identity of many of the bodies is unknown.Families who suspect that they might have relatives buried at Fromelles are being asked to come forward to aid the process.The soldiers will then be buried in individual graves in a new war cemetery nearby. It is hoped that the entire process will be completed in no longer than 6 months. A commemorative ceremony is expected to take place in July 2010. The attack at Fromelles was an unsuccessful attempt to divert German attention away from the Somme. The advance over difficult ground in clear view of the enemy sent thousands of British and Australian soldiers to their deaths within hours.The majority of bodies were recovered but the whereabouts of several hundred bodies was a mystery, up until the discovery of the site at Pheasant Wood. Oxford Archaeology is a multi-national team consisting mostly of archaeologists, radiologists and anthropologists from the University of Oxford. Robert Neil and Alison Anderson are the chief coordinators of the project, experts in body identification who were also involved with the mortuary after the July 2007 London bombings.The Australian and British governments will equally share the costs of the recovery work and DNA testing. The chief objective of the project is to “ensure that these servicemen are buried with the dignity and honour that their sacrifice deserves.”

Fifth Third Bank Provides Funding For ‘Achieve Your Degree’People who attend New Hope Missionary Baptist Church and Memorial Baptist Church are being offered an opportunity to attend college with little to no out-of-pocket costs. Funding will be provided by Fifth Third Bank and the Ivy Tech Foundation. ‘Achieve Your Degree’ is a collaboration between Ivy Tech Community College and businesses, healthcare organizations, and community organizations to minimize financial obstacles for those who want to earn a college degree.Ivy Tech Community College delays payment of tuition until the end of the semester when working with a business that has tuition reimbursement funds available. Chancellor of Ivy Tech Community College Southwest Jonathan Weinzapfel says, “Because community organizations, like these two churches, don’t have tuition reimbursement benefits – Fifth Third Bank’s generosity is making going to college possible for these church members. This funding will pay any gap between what financial aid is available for a student and what the cost of tuition is.”Fifth Third Bank is working on establishing internship opportunities with local businesses for students in fields such as technology like Industrial Electrical, Industrial Mechanical, Welding, Machine Tooling, Advanced Automation, and Robotics Technology along with other programs.Pastor Rabon Turner of New Hope Missionary Baptist Church and Pastor Adrian Brooks of Memorial Baptist Church said they have been recruiting at their churches and there is a significant interest for the opportunity.

With consumers increasingly opting for ethical products, Costa Coffee has set up its own charity, the Costa Foundation. The company says its aim is to put something back into coffee-growing communities from which it sources its coffee beans. It is currently working in Colombia, Ethiopia and Uganda.The foundation helps support communities by building new schools and teacher accommodation, investing in water wells, developing land for families to grow crops and building latrines.”In Colombia, the local authority has agreed to provide kindergarten facilities within the primary school we are extending. In Ethiopia, electricity is being funded and supplied to the schools we are building – this is the first time this community has had electricity,” says a Costa spokesman.The Costa Foundation is funded through a number of mechanisms, including an annual donation from Costa, match-funding by Whitbread, store fundraising activities, customer donations and payroll contributions. Individual donations can also be increased through Gift Aid, a government-led initiative, that allows charities such as the Costa Foundation to reclaim the basic rate of income tax on donations made to them by UK taxpayers.”We are 100% committed to developing long-term, sustainable projects and, to support this, schools can apply for grants on an ongoing basis to provide additional resources when required,” says the spokesman “We recognise that, without the farmers and co-operatives who grow our beans, we have no business and that they are an integral part of Costa’s success.”The firm works closely with our brokers, who have long-term relationships with the non governmental organisations and co-operatives that are responsible for the day-to-day project management in the supported countries.Regular project updates are provided and there is a robust auditing process in place to evaluate and measure progress, says the company. The staged release of funds is based on achieving agreed targets.Other organisations in the coffee-growing countries include: the Federacion Nacional Cafeteros de Colombia; the Oromia Coffee Farmers Co-operative Union in Ethiopia; and Union Export Services in Uganda.Costa offers its own blend of Fairtrade coffee at no extra cost. But not all the coffee is Fairtrade, as availability could not be guaranteed from all Costa’s origins to produce the right quality for its Mocha Italia Espresso blend.
In response to the South Asia Initiative’s demonstrated commitment to the advancement of South Asian studies and programs, the Office of the President and the Office of the Provost at Harvard have formally renamed it the South Asia Institute (SAI) at Harvard University.“With this endorsement SAI joins the highly regarded group of centers and institutes at Harvard that lead the University’s intellectual and academic inquiry on area-specific global issues,” said Jorge I. Dominguez, the vice provost for international affairs.Established in 2003, SAI engages faculty and students through interdisciplinary programs to advance and deepen the teaching and research on global issues relevant to South Asia. In conjunction with the name change, SAI’s website will also change to http://southasiainstitute.harvard.edu/.SAI’s elevated status comes in the wake of years of work engaging more than 150 faculty from across the University who teach and conduct research on the region, as well as more than 300 students from South Asia studying at Harvard — the fastest-growing sector of Harvard’s student population.“SAI will remain a catalyst for interdisciplinary scholarship on problems in this important region,” SAI Director Tarun Khanna said. “We look forward to fostering work with those on the forefront of change in South Asia, with the aim of increasingly becoming a leading center of intellectual activities related to South Asia.”Harvard’s engagement with South Asia dates to 1872 when the University became the first in the nation to offer Sanskrit courses. In 1964, the Harvard Water Program in Pakistan was established after then-President Ayub Khan asked President John F. Kennedy for assistance in managing the country’s failing water systems.Today, professors and students from across Harvard conduct collaborative research on strategic social, economic, environmental, and political issues with scholars and institutions throughout South Asia. SAI now has offices in four South Asian locales: Mumbai, India; Dhaka, Bangladesh: and Lahore and Karachi, Pakistan. These offices make the institute optimally placed to facilitate productive exchange between Harvard students and faculty and regional partners — for academic engagement, research, collaboration, and internships — while enhancing Harvard’s South Asian studies, which are grounded in deep contextual knowledge of the region’s diversity and complexity.The elevation to the mantle of University-wide institute is a source of encouragement and excitement to the faculty, staff, students, and members of the broader community who contribute on a daily basis to raise the profile of South Asian scholarship at Harvard.“It is an indication to these stakeholders and to observers globally of Harvard’s commitment to continually deepen its engagement with South Asia,” Khanna said.
