4727  The Rest / General Discussions / College girls banned from whistling at builders on: June 22, 2008, 11:44:14 PM
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/howaboutthat/2174531/College-girls-banned-from-whistling-at-builders.html

A further education college is having to protect builders from wolf-whistling girls, in a reversal of traditional gender stereotypes.

Officials at West Kent College in Tonbridge, Kent, sent an email to all pupils warning that the behaviour was "totally unacceptable", and saying any students caught harassing contractors would face disciplinary action.

The email was sent after a demolition team started work on a 94 million, three-year building project at the campus.

The email read: "It has come to the attention of the college that some female students have been making comments to, or whistling at, the builders both whilst on site and as they walk around the campus.

"Although we are sure no offence is meant, this constitutes harassment and is wholly unacceptable.

"We have asked the contractors' representative to pass on all instances of harassment to the college and we will take appropriate action which may include disciplinary action."

A spokeswoman for the contractors, Galliford Try, said: "We have no registered complaints on this issue. However we do not condone inappropriate behaviour from any parties on our sites."

Meanwhile new laws could see wolf-whistling builders placed on the sex offenders register. The Sexual Offences (Scotland) Bill will create a new offence of "communicating indecently", punishable by up to 10 years in jail.

The legislation is intended to punish sexual harassment by text, emails and letters, but ministers also aim to include sexually explicit comments to strangers. It is expected that the law would only apply to persistent offenders.

At the moment, workmen who repeatedly make obscene comments to passers-by can be convicted of a breach of the peace.

Bromley is where I'm from :-(

EDIT: And it's the Welsh that shag sheep, not the Scottish!


I thought it was the Kiwis.

Why has Atlus pulled out of E3 this year - anyone know?

I was hoping for some Persona 4 news. :(

I'm sure he was happier to do that than fight another bum, even for money.

there was mention of the idea of making a web based alternative to use alongside the game,


Meaning what exactly?

Whatever happened to that fan translation that was supposed to be in progress?

I'm assuming it is damage control, but anything to get these games out before 2010.

Now they're saying it's *not* on hold.

There's a story on Kotaku saying guys are just running across the hall when needed to help out and both are on schedule.

Well Machine Head was live, so hopefully the studio version will be better.
4739  Media / The Soundroom / Maiden Heaven - new Iron Maiden tribute on: June 18, 2008, 07:30:48 PM
Yeah I know there's been a bunch, but this is being released with the July issue of Kerrang and is called Maiden Heaven.

So far, the two covers confirmed are

Machine Head - Hallowed Be Thy Name
Dream Theater - To Tame A Land (!)

Sounds like an interesting start at least. Rest of the track listing will apparantly be revealed next week.

Thought a few would be interested in this.

Artwork is good too.

Lets see how it does.  New Squeenix titles tend to be a hit or a miss.


Isn't that the same for every title?
