Paranormal Activity?

A year after seeing the film in the cinema scared the bejeezus out of me, I discover an alternate ending to Paranormal Activity. I'm not sure whether I prefer this ending or not, although it does add some interesting ambiguity to the conclusion.

All In It Together

"The majestic quality of the law which prohibits the wealthy as well as the poor from sleeping under the bridges, from begging in the streets, and from stealing bread."

- Jacques Anatole Francois Thibault (1844-1924)

Yesterday I started my lecturing at A University In The North-West Of England - a temporary post teaching one module until early January, but good experience, and hopefully good from a CV/references point of view. The first lecture went pretty well, and the class seems keen enough.

I've also been able to apply for three years of post-doctoral funding from the British Academy, with A University In The South-East Of England as the host institution. The British Academy is very up front about there being a 5% success rate, so this may be one of those "Take a crate, hop over to Bremen...Don't come back" applications, but there you go.
