Alexander Wang for H&M

By Annabelle Lucas

 It seems like a century ago when New York designer Alexander Wang announced his collaboration with Swedish retailer H&M. We were kept on the edge of our seats as Wang gave us mysterious Instagram sneak previews, as well sneaky teaser videos. The glorious moment finally came to reality on November 6th, when his collection made its debut in H&M flagship stores across the world. 

The New Age of Sport


By Sophia Greaves

Flicking aimlessly through the headlines of the Guardian, the Telegraph, the BBC and the Times, I couldn’t help but notice how our focus on international sport has shifted towards sports technology and away from the individual players themselves. Instead of being bombarded with the long winded ‘Rory Lamont scored two of Scotland’s eight tries as they overcame a plucky Portugal in their opening World Cup match in St Etienne’ (deep breath) or a concise ‘All Blacks defeat Argentina to take the title’ and ‘Federer vs Murray- History up for grabs’ what I received was; ‘Modern demands modern techniques’ and ‘A guide to what Wimbledon big data is all about.’ Is it justifiable for reporting on sport to simply slip away from the games and the stars themselves?  

Air Strikes in Syria: Salvation or Slaughter?


By Sharvani Kim Jeya Putra

 The United States began air strikes without congressional authorisation or the backing of a UN resolution in a renewed war being waged in the Middle East. No evidence was submitted as to whether an imminent threat currently exists in America. However, a Justice Department Memo states that the United States is not required to have “clear evidence that a specific attack on U.S. persons and interests will take place in the immediate future” for there to be an immediate threat, creating a rather dubious precedent as to when the United States can justifiably intervene in other countries’ affairs.

5 ‘Experience’ Hotels for the Vacation Season

In anticipation of the holiday season, we have collaborated to create a top 5 list of the hotels we think are the most extreme or quirky. Our aim was to find five hotels in the most unusual locations, whether that was in the desert, up a tree, frozen by ice, or in the humid heat of the jungle. Our fifth category was a ‘wildcard’; a hotel that defied all rules of normalcy and was the epitome of eccentricity.

Next time you or your parents say: “It’s time we had a break”, don’t go straight for the expensive, glamorous, celebrity-endorsed hotels. Try somewhere different, a little bit….unconventional.

Jenny Laurence’s South African Adventure

 Jenny Lawrence, our first Vicky Tuck Scholar, reports back from her amazing experiences volunteering abroad.

I chose South Africa as my destination for the Vicki Tuck Scholarship, firstly because I was interested in the socio-economic situation of the country, because the culture of the country intrigued me, and lastly because my work as the Development Prefect had already led me to become involved in CLC’s relationship with the Diocesan School for Girls (DSG).

The Scottish Referendum: What Now?


By Raphaela Ashford

It was the biggest story in the news but a few weeks ago; on TV, all over the internet, even in Ms Jardine-Young’s prayers, but now it seems the Scottish referendum has been all but brushed under the carpet. However as the 2015 General Election approaches the implications of the ‘no’ vote must be called into question. If at this point you were thinking, “Err, I thought a no vote meant no change,” you were mistaken!

The Response to HeForShe


By Isabella Crane 


It has been about a week since Emma Watson gave her widely acclaimed speech in support of the campaign “HeforShe”, a ‘solidarity movement’ of the United Nations that promotes worldwide rights for women. Since then, Emma has received a wave of online response articles, many impassioned letters, multiple death warnings and threats to her privacy. All of which, you might argue, could not have been totally unanticipated by any movie-star turned social campaigner. However, what I find incredibly frustrating is that even many of the articles supporting Emma retain a condescending attitude and uphold a tendency to focus on the irrelevant details of her speech, such as her clothing. Given that these are all responses to a speech about gender equality, the irony would be laughable if the situation weren’t quite so serious.

For those who haven’t been following the 2014 Brazil World Cup, I can wholeheartedly tell you that you are missing out. Why? Because of the things we expected, and the things we certainly didn’t.

A Cure for Cancer on the Horizon


By Emma Bryan

As seen in Pegasus Pages (Summer 2014)

A sensitive topic for many, cancer, develops in 14.1 million people worldwide each year, and this number is expected to increase to 24 million by 2035. Both human and veterinary medicine are affected, with one in four dogs and one in six cats also being diagnosed in their lifetime. However, new medical advances in the field of immuno-oncology could have the potential to wipe out cancer, using the body’s own natural defences. Cancer is essentially caused by an error in the copying of genetic material when cells are replicated. The human genome is about 3 billion base pairs long and just one mutation could lead to uncontrolled division. For example, a mutation in the p53 gene during DNA replication might mean that the DNA sequence is not “checked” for errors, therefore division happens at a faster rate and produces cancer cells.
