Friday News is back from holiday

8 Apr

I’ve been on holiday, so it’s been a bit quiet on the friday news front. Here are some links, which come with the usual disclaimer of possibly not being the views of CCK, safe for work, or to your liking. We just think they’re interesting.

Friday news doesn’t know which seat to take

18 Mar

As always with Friday news links, they may not reflect the opinion of CCK, be suitable for those under 18, the workplace, or those of a certain mindset. We take no responsibility for how you react to these links, we just think they’re interesting. The editor, however, wishes to apologise to anyone who does in fact, know which day comes after Friday.

Friday News is multitasking in a meeting

18 Feb

It’s Friday, which is the traditional everybody-in staff meeting day at CCK towers – lots of talking about the things we’re doing, Kiera is taking photos (we might show you – we know they’ll be good, but will they be flattering?) and you’re editor here is trying not to consume the entire loaf of ginger cake. So I’m writing the links we’ve loved!

As always, these links are external to CCK, and may not reflect the views of CCK. Some links may not be suitable for work, small children, or the easily offended; they might be triggering.


Strange Fruit – the first great protest song [The Guardian].

Hipster or Gay? How to tell [Themostcake].

Friday News!

14 Jan

I’m writing this sitting in our staff meeting – shh, don’t tell anyone – because I will not be late this week. And because I want to go to the pub with everyone else (we know how to team build).

With all of these links, they are not CCK content, and do not necessarily express the views of CCK (we just think they’re interesting). Content may not be suitable for under-18s, workplace viewing, or be particularly kinky. On with the linky goodness!

What if Tunisia had a revolution and nobody noticed? [My heart’s in Accra]. There’s a liveblog at EA WorldView.

The Women’s Library is hosting an exhibition by the ceramic artist Nicola Malkin, as a part of their exhibition on women and domestic crafts (which is excellent, by the way – E) [The Women’s Library].

The Adipositivity Project is a gorgeous project aiming to widen the definitions of beauty through photography.

Nominate insipiring women for The Guardian’s list celebrating the 100th International Women’s Day [The Guardian].

Possibly including someone of this list of ten things invented by women [Women’s History Month].

With all of these links, they are not CCK content, and do not necessarily express the views of CCK (we just think they’re interesting). Content may not be suitable for under-18s, workplace viewing, or be particularly kinky.
