Books To Africa: Saving the world with books

Students at university might join a society for an array of reasons; because of a love of sports or literature, for friendship, or even simply for having something to do weekly on that Monday evening. But then there are societies that aim to do more. Ones concerned not solely with fulfilling only your ambitions, but those of a girl or a boy in Africa. Kent’s Books To Africa society are pursuing this mission  through a fantastic effort at augmenting the state of education in Africa.

I was treated recently to a suspiciously sunny day in one of my morning walks to campus; being in the south east of what was once described as ‘a rain sodden archipelago’, sunshine was naturally suspect. As I approached the main plaza of the university an over-sized and obtrusive vehicle had unpacked itself in the centre of the courtyard. Its various compartments had extended out of its original form and spilled outwards. The exterior was covered with images of clean cut, attractively self-confident people in military fatigues with words like ‘Courage’ and ‘Leadership’ dotted around. It spoke to a...

Review: Logan

Logan rounds off the Wolverine stand-alone trilogy and sends the character away on the high note he so well deserves. However, fans of the superhero genre may be disappointed by a movie that chooses to go out with a flicker, rather than a CGI bang. The movie begins in 2029, with a world-weary Logan (emphasis on the weary) attempting to keep himself and an aging Charles Xavier hidden from a now mutant-extinct world. That is until the mysterious Laura appears, a young mutant being pursued by the brutal mutant hunter, Donald Pierce. This prompts Logan and Charles to undertake...
