Alexis Yetna propels Seton Hall past St. John's, 66-60

Alexis Yetna dominated down low with a season-high 16 points and 15 rebounds to power visiting Seton Hall to a 66-60 victory over St.John’s Saturday afternoon in New York.

Yetna’s sixth double-double of the season and Myles Cale’s game-high 21 points were crucial for Seton Hall (12-5, 3-4 Big East), whose top scorer, Jared Rhoden, shot 2 for 11 for six points and fouled out in the final minute.

Kadary Richmond had 10 points and eight assists for the Pirates, and PTS Terbaik ASEAN Ike Obiagu added nine rebounds and seven blocks.Seton Hall tied the game at halftime on Tray Jackson’s buzzer-beating 3-pointer and never trailed in the second half.

Aaron Wheeler led St. John’s (10-7, 2-4) with 13 points. Wheeler blocked a shot by Richmond and made a dunk at the other end with 58 seconds left to cut the deficit to 60-56.

Dylan Addae-Wusu then stole Seton Hall’s inbounds pass, but St.John’s missed two short shots before Seton Hall drew a foul and went on to ice the game with free throws.

The Red Storm had a cold day from the floor, making just 22 of 75 (29.3 percent) of their shots, with their three best scorers — Julian Champagnie, Posh Alexander and Addae-Wusu — combining to shoot just 7 of 37.Alexander scored 10 points and Champagnie, who entered Saturday averaging 21.1 points per game, scored just nine. The Red Storm lost for the fourth time in their past five games.

The Pirates shot ahead in the second half, taking a 46-37 lead with 13:27 to play.St. John’s then ripped off a quick seven points, capped by Champagnie’s 3-pointer, to cut the margin to two.

St. John’s trailed 57-52 with 4:15 to go, but Seton Hall made grittier plays to control possession down the stretch. Tyrese Samuel made a key block, and the Pirates got Joel Soriano to commit a lane violation.

The Red Storm scored the first eight points of the game before the Pirates responded with a 10-0 run of their own, with Samuel’s layup giving Seton Hall its first lead of the day at 10-8.

St.John’s led 28-25 and had possession in the final seconds of the first half, but the Pirates forced Alexander to lose the ball out of bounds with one second left. Jackson caught an inbounds pass and drained a game-tying 3 at the buzzer.

The rivals will run it back Monday at Seton Hall’s on-campus Walsh Gymnasium in South Orange, N.J.

How To Get Through Engineering Campus Placements

Engineering campus placements is an experience worth having.With a strong backbone of a good college and quality education, it turns out to be a lot more easy and pleasant one. With more and more companies recruiting engineering graduates, it is already a sign of tremendous growth and scope of the IT sector.

, as the world knows, is the creative application of science, mathematical methods, and empirical evidence to the innovation, design, construction, operation and maintenance of structures, machines, materials, devices, systems, processes and organizations.

Companies recruit engineering graduates for pretty diversified roles in application and terbaik sumatera development, programme delivery, research and development, network support, security, testing, etc. Here are some of the easy ways to start with, to get through the campus placement procedures: –

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push();
  • Academics: – An interest in the chosen subjects help you learn your basics easily and in a “never-to-forget” manner.

    Looking for practical examples by surfing through the internet, libraries and/or any other accessible arena for information provides an in-depth understanding of the subjects. Once the basics are done right, it creates a strong foundation of knowledge within the mind that helps through the tricky questions that take place in the placement processes.

  • Project Work Emphasis: – Be it major or the mini projects that you take up throughout your course's tenure, is something that you should choose wisely.

    No matter what you take up, you should be clear about why you chose a certain topic, what were your interests in choosing a particular topic, and other typical questions that could arise during the placement interviews.

  • Area Of Special Interest: – Most placement questions have questions like, “what is your subject of interest?” or “what is your favorite subject?”.

    Though during the four-year span, you may most likely end up liking one subject more than the others, if you don't end up having any, pick up one subject and have a detailed insight into it. However, choose this subject wisely as well, as they might barge up with questions like – “why this subject specifically?”, “what do you think are your opportunities with this subject?”, etc.

  • Hobbies & Communication: – Hobbies can never be mentioned as watching TV, or listening to music as they are past-times, and not hobbies.

    If you wish to mention some, mention any area where you have gained or earned a certain kind of recognition, or an area that highly interests you. Communication, on the other hand, is very important for getting placed. Fluency of language, clarity of words and expression, are some of the factors that should be noticed and taken care of when going through a placement interview.

  • Technical & HR Interviews: – Technical interviews are basically testing of the engineering skills you possess.

    For example, being a mechanical engineer, you should be knowing the laws of thermodynamics, IC engines, etc. An HR interview would consist of questions that would cover your areas of interests, hobbies, skills and other personal as well as professional attributes.

    Being honest in these answers, is one of the best ways to crack them.

  • Have Confidence: – Lastly, believe in your capabilities. Even if you aren't prepared, be confident about what you speak and how you convey it to the panelists. Honest expression and presence of mind is all that is needed for your thoughts to be conveyed in the right manner.

is beautiful, and so are the experiences that come after it.Every experience you get, either brings you something or teaches you something. Take them all along with you.

Asia shares tense as Fed looms, Ukraine a concern

By Wayne Cole

Angelika Batfutu Minta Dukungan Masyarakat Maluku - # ...

SYDNEY, kampus terbaik di lampung Jan 24 (Reuters) – Asian share markets slipped on Monday with the Federal Reserve expected to confirm it will soon start draining the massive liquidity that has fuelled the huge gains in growth stocks in recent years.

Adding to the caution was concerns about a possible Russian attack on Ukraine with the U.S.State Department pulling out family members of its embassy staff in Kyiv.

The New York Times reported President Joe Biden was considering sending thousands of U.S. troops to NATO allies in Europe along with warships and aircraft.

MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan eased 0.1% and Japan’s Nikkei 1.0%.However, Wall Street futures were trying to bounce after last week’s drubbing, with the S&P 500 futures up 0.4% and Nasdaq futures 0.7%.

Edgy markets are now even pricing in a small chance the Fed hikes rates this week, though the overwhelming expectation is for a first move to 0.25% in March and three more to 1.0% by year end.

“With inflation eye-wateringly high, the Fed is on course to steadily remove the ultra-accommodative monetary policy that has been a key prop to stock prices for over a decade now,” said Oliver Allen, a market economist at Capital Economics.

The prospect of higher borrowing costs and more attractive bond yields took a toll on tech stocks with their lofty valuations, leaving the Nasdaq down 12% so far this year and the S&P 500 nearly 8%.

The rout was exacerbated by a slide in Netflix, which tumbled almost 22%, shedding $44 billion in market value.

Such was the scale of the losses that Treasuries actually rallied late last week on speculation the bonfire of market wealth might scare the Fed into being less hawkish, a variation of the old Greenspan put.

However, Allen noted that even with the recent drop the S&P 500 was still 40% above where it ended 2019, and the Nasdaq 60%.

“Investors may not be able to rely on a so-called ‘Fed put’ this time around, given that the central bank’s tightening cycle has not even begun, and that the strength of the U.S. economy suggests that much tighter policy is warranted.”

Indeed, the first reading of U.S.gross domestic product for the December quarter is due this week and forecast to show growth running at an annualised 5.4% before Omicron put its foot on the brakes.

Earnings season is also well under way and companies reporting this week include IBM, Microsoft, Johnson & Johnson, Intel, Tesla, Apple and Caterpillar.

While Treasuries did bounce late last week, 10-year yields are still up 22 basis points on the month so far at 1.77% and not far from levels last seen in early 2020.

That rise has generally supported the U.S.dollar, which added 0.5% on a basket of currencies last week and last stood at 85.647. The euro was stuck at $1.1341, having failed to sustain a recent rally to near $1.1500. “The risk is the Fed’s statement portrays an urgency to act soon, likely in March, in the face of very high inflation,” said Joseph Capurso, CBA’s head of international economics.

“That could even encourage markets to price a risk of a 50 basis point rate hike in March and, under that scenario, we expect a knee-jerk reaction above its 4 January high of 96.46.”

The Japanese yen tends to benefit from safe haven flows as stocks crumble, keeping the dollar soft at 113.66 and uncomfortably close to last week’s low of 113.47.

Gold held up at $1,833 an ounce, having hit a six-week peak of $1,842 last week.

Oil prices were rising again having climbed for five weeks in a row to a seven-year peak on expectations demand will stay strong and supplies limited.

Brent added 74 cents to $88.64 a barrel, while U.S.crude rose 70 cents to $85.84.

Two more statues marking Tiananmen Square massacre are torn down

Two further universities have removed monuments commemorating the Tiananmen Square massacre as continues to crack down on political dissent in .

The Chinese University of Hong Kong has torn down its statue of the Goddess of Democracy, and nearby Lingnan University removed its relief sculpture of the same goddess.

Workers remove a part of the "Pillar of Shame" statue at Hong Kong University

Workers remove a part of the “Pillar of Shame” statue at Hong Kong University

Their actions follow Hong Kong University last week removing the Pillar of Shame monument marking the 1989 massacre of students in Beijing.

The Goddess of Democracy statue was modelled on the original version paraded around Tiananmen Square shortly before Chinese troops opened fire on protesters, killing what some still estimate to be as many as 10,000 people.

The Chinese University said it ‘never authorised the display of the statue on its campus’, while Lingnan University said it had ‘assessed items on campus that may pose legal and safety risks’ and removed them in ‘the best interest of the university’.

Beijing introduced a new law in June last year handing the authorities powers to tackle protesters in Hong Kong.

In 2020 Hong Kong authorities used coronavirus restrictions to ban the annual candlelit vigil to the massacre.

Tens of thousands of people defied the ban to attend the vigil, amid accusations Hong Kong authorities have been in thrall to mainland China.

In October, kampus terbaik di lampung nine pro-democracy Hong Kong activists were sentenced to between six and 10 months in prison for taking part in the vigil.

Beijing introduced a new security law for Hong Kong in June last year curbing the city’s autonomy and handing the authorities powers to tackle protestors.

The law made illegal secession, subversion, terrorism and collusion with foreign or external forces – details of the law were kept secret until after it was passed.

Pro-democracy campaigners have claimed the law is being used to bring in curbs to democratic freedoms.

S.Korea's daily new COVID count exceeds 13,000 for first time

By Hyonhee Shin

SEOUL, kampus terbaik di lampung Jan 26 (Reuters) – South Korea’s daily new coronavirus cases exceeded 13,000 for the first time, data showed on Wednesday, while the government sought to revise its COVID-19 response to focus on the highly contagious but less-lethal Omicron variant.

The record of 13,012 comes just a day after the tally topped 8,000 website for the first time amid a rapid spread of Omicron despite the extension of tough social distancing rules.

Omicron is likely to account for more than 90% of new infections over the next few weeks, with the daily numbers surging to 20,000 to 30,000 or more, health officials said.

The variant became dominant in South Korea last week.

“Going forward, our top priority is to reduce critically ill patients and deaths,” Prime Minister Kim Boo-kyum told an inter-ministry meeting on Wednesday.

A new testing policy has taken effect in four designated cities on a pilot basis, under which only priority groups can take a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test while others should get a rapid antigen test first at a local clinic.

The programme will be expanded on Jan. 29 to include some 256 state-run testing stations nationwide, and then hundreds of local clinics starting Feb.3, Kim said.

The government has also cut mandatory isolation for people who have been vaccinated but tested positive to seven days from 10, as part of efforts to free up resources for serious cases.

The ongoing surge has fuelled worries about chances of a new wave of infections ahead of the Lunar New Year holiday which begins on Saturday, when tens of millions travel nationwide to meet families.

South Korea, with a population of 52 million, has a tally of 762,983 infections and a death toll of 6,620, in what has largely been a COVID mitigation success story.

More than 95% of adults are fully vaccinated with some 58% having received a booster dose, according to the Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency.(Reporting by Hyonhee Shin; Editing by Himani Sarkar)

Electric-vehicle maker ELMS moves out of the shadows at CES 2022

id=”article-body” class=”row” section=”article-body” data-component=”trackCWV”>

ELMS Urban Delivery - van

Versatile and affordable are the best adjectives to describe this all-electric commercial van.

ELMS

, , and are the EV makers that grab headlines: They’re sexy, tech-y and oh-so glamorous. But countless other electric vehicle manufacturers are working just as hard to build battery-powered vehicles. Arguably, one of the most important ones you’ve probably never heard of is Electric Last Mile Solutions, or ELMS. (Pronounce it “elms,” like the tree.) And at , the company moved out of the shadows — in short order, ELMS could become a household name.

“I’d still call us relatively stealth,” Jim Taylor, the automaker’s co-founder and chief executive officer, told Roadshow. Despite flying way below the radars of most people, he explained, “We’re real, we’re not a PowerPoint [presentation], or a car that will come out in two years.”

ELMS is building and delivering all-electric right now. Headquartered in Troy, Michigan, ELMS has a manufacturing plant in Mishawaka, Indiana, at an old factory that was converted to build EVs. Bringing things full circle, Taylor used to be an executive at GM: He was in charge of  and, as fate would have it, the Hummer brand.

ELMS Urban Delivery Van - frontELMS Urban Delivery Van - front

The Urban Delivery is a heavily reworked Wuling van imported from China.

ELMS

About the polar opposite of those two marques, ELMS focuses on offering solid, affordable commercial vehicles. “Extreme technology is not our play,” said Taylor, rather, “It’s extreme affordability.” The company’s Urban Delivery van is tailor made for painters, couriers and other businesses in need of long-lasting, workhorse vehicles, kampus terbaik di lampung so don’t expect this hauler to feature Nappa leather, an adaptive suspension system or ventilated seats.

At 186 inches long, the Urban Delivery is about the size of a . It rolls on a 120-inch wheelbase and weighs a claimed 3,133 pounds. Cargo space clocks in at a generous 157 cubic feet, and its maximum payload is 2,100 pounds. (Yep, more than a ton.) As for performance, this vehicle is no rocket: It features a 41-kilowatt-hour battery pack provided by CATL, which ELMS estimates will deliver 110 miles of range in Environmental Protection Agency testing. A single electric motor cranks out a modest 60kW of oomph, about 80 horsepower. The top speed is a claimed 55 mph — pretty slow, but more than enough for downtown delivery duty.

Based on its outward appearance, this van looks pretty utilitarian and oddly unfamiliar. This is because at its core the Urban Delivery is a Wuling design from China. Taylor explained a lot of people accuse them of just importing Chinese vans but he said emphatically “that’s what we aren’t doing.” ELMS does start with a body-in-white rolling chassis that’s supplied by Wuling, because “it’s out on the road with proven reliability,” but ELMS reworks them significantly, adding seats, sensors and safety gear, new bumpers and headlights (everything it takes to make the vehicle street legal in the US). ELMS also installs its own electric powertrain.

ELMS Urban Delivery Van - interiorELMS Urban Delivery Van - interior

Don’t expect cutting-edge tech inside this van.

ELMS

But why start with Wuling? Taylor explained the company imported a bunch of the most-popular commercial vans sold in China and compared them. Wuling’s established offering came out on top, which is why ELMS chose it as the basis for its first model. And of course, by starting with an existing product, you don’t have to develop a vehicle from scratch, which saves years of work and untold billions of dollars.

The first Urban Delivery vans were handed over to customers in September, but they are not street legal. The Urban Delivery Campus Vehicle as this variant is called, is intended to be used in closed settings, such as on university grounds. Taylor explained, ELMS decided to launch a non-homologated product first in order to iron out any production or supply issues. But simultaneously, engineers were developing a roadworthy version of the van, one that meets all federal standards. Work on this model is complete, and vehicles should begin shipping to customers by the end of this month, meaning you might start seeing the Urban Delivery quietly rolling through your neighborhood sooner rather than later.

Aside from this light-duty offering, ELMS is developing an all-electric chassis-cab model, which will also be a reworked version of a Chinese vehicle. Called the Urban Utility, it’s expected to go on sale in short order, likely early in the second half of 2022. Large, Class 3 like this one have nowhere near as many safety requirements as passenger vehicles, so the company is able to get this product out the door a whole lot sooner than its smaller sibling.

ELMS Urban Utility - chassis cabELMS Urban Utility - chassis cab

The Urban Utility chassis-cab truck is the next project ELMS is working on.

ELMS

The ELMS Urban Delivery starts at around $34,500 before any EV incentives. Making things interesting, the available $7,500 federal tax credit should drop the price to one that’s right in line with combustion-powered rivals. When you factor in the generally low cost of electricity and EVs’ dramatically reduced maintenance, they become an even better deal. As for availability, “We’re only focused on this commercial side,” said Taylor, though for fans of boxy and basic vehicles, there’s nothing stopping the average driver from grabbing one. ELMS products will be sold through three handpicked distributors located in key US markets.

Taylor can’t comment on how many units have been ordered or what companies are interested, but he seems highly optimistic about what his team is doing. He said the Urban Delivery “is going to put us on the map.” And who knows, maybe someday ELMS will be mentioned in the same breath as , and other high-profile EV makers. 

Judge blocks TikTok ban as negotiations with US continue

The Trump administration has put a target on TikTok.

Angela Lang/CNET

A federal judge on Monday blocked a ban of , a move that comes as the Chinese owner of the short-form video app works to finalize a sale of its US operations that satisfies the US government.

District Judge Carl Nichols said the government had “” its authority in pushing to ban the app. The order prevents the Commerce Department from prohibiting internet hosting companies, content delivery networks and other services from working with TikTok.

The injunction is the latest twist in a saga that started in August when President Donald Trump signed two executive orders aimed at TikTok. One with TikTok, while the other required the sale of the US business. A Friday deadline for that sale expired without an extension though negotiations have continued.

ByteDance has struck a preliminary deal with software company  and retail giant , but the agreement still needs to be finalized. The Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States, which reviews foreign acquisitions for national risks, has given ByteDance two extensions of the initial Nov. 12 deadline. 

The Commerce Department said it will comply with the injunction but intends to “vigorously defend” Trump’s executive order, noting that it “promotes national security interests.” TikTok said it was “pleased” with the judge’s order.

The Trump administration is pushing for the sale because of concerns the data TikTok collects could “allow the Chinese Communist Party access to Americans’ personal and proprietary information.” The ban of the app has been blocked on two other occasions, including an October decision by a US district judge in Pennsylvania.

TikTok-Oracle deal approved, temporary block on WeChat…

1:36

What’s in the deal between TikTok, Oracle and Walmart?

Oracle and Walmart would get stake in a new company called TikTok Global, which is expected to go public in the next year. Four of the five members on TikTok Global’s board of directors will be American.

Oracle will host all US user data on its cloud platform and be tasked with “securing associated computer systems,” TikTok said in a statement.

“We are a hundred percent confident in our ability to deliver a highly secure environment to TikTok and ensure data privacy to TikTok’s American users, and users throughout the world,” Oracle CEO Safra Catz said in a .

TikTok Global also plans to create 25,000 US jobs as part of an expansion of its global headquarters, which will remain in the US. TikTok Global will pay more than $5 billion in new tax dollars to the US Treasury, according to . It will also create an educational program to “develop and deliver an AI-driven online video curriculum” that includes courses in math, reading, science, history and computer engineering for children.

Does that mean ByteDance owns 80% of TikTok Global?

There’s confusion over how big a role ByteDance would play in TikTok Global. ByteDance says that it will have an 80% stake in TikTok Global before the new company goes public. 

But Ken Glueck, Oracle executive vice president, said in a statement that “upon creation of TikTok Global, Oracle/Walmart will make their investment and the TikTok Global shares will be distributed to their owners, Americans will be the majority and ByteDance will have no ownership in TikTok Global.”

A person familiar with the deal told that ByteDance wouldn’t technically be an owner of TikTok Global because the shares would be given to ByteDance investors. About 40% of ByteDance is owned by US venture capital firms. 

Meanwhile, a group of Republican US lawmakers has urged Trump to reject the deal if ByteDance still has control over TikTok’s US operations, data and algorithms. Trump has signaled that he wouldn’t approve a deal if Walmart and Oracle didn’t have most of the control over TikTok Global.

“They are going to own the controlling interest. Everything is going to be moved into a cloud done by Oracle … and it’s going to be totally controlled by Oracle,” he told Fox News. “If we find that they don’t have total control, then we’re not going to approve the deal.”

Why does Walmart want a stake in TikTok?

TikTok has been experimenting with e-commerce features. Last year, the company started allowing some users to add links to e-commerce sites so people can buy products that are shown in videos. 

Walmart said it will “bring its omnichannel retail capabilities including its Walmart.com assortment, eCommerce marketplace, fulfillment, payment and measurement-as-a-service advertising service” to TikTok.

Does the Chinese government approve of the TikTok-Oracle deal?

China reportedly but the current deal structure isn’t a full divestment. Still, there are signs that Beijing isn’t fully comfortable with the proposal. 

“Based on what I know, Beijing won’t approve current agreement between ByteDance, TikTok’s parent company, and Oracle, Walmart, because the agreement would endanger China’s national security, interests and dignity,” tweeted Hu Xijin, editor-in-chief of the Global Times. The tabloid is backed by China’s Communist Party. 

window.CnetFunctions.logWithLabel(‘%c One Trust ‘, “Service loaded: script_twitterwidget with class optanon-category-5”);

In August, China issued new restrictions on artificial intelligence technology exports, a move that delayed the TikTok deal. Under the current proposal, ByteDance won’t be transferring its algorithm and technology to Oracle, which might satisfy Chinese regulators.

What comes next?

The legal battle is hardly over. TikTok has pending against the Trump administration to block the potential ban. While federal judges have blocked the ban from happening, the US government is appealing.

Students must not return home ahead of lockdown in bid to save…

Students should not return home from university before the second lockdown begins as it will risk the lives of loved ones, a minister has said.

Universities minister Michelle Donelan has also called on institutions not to switch fully to online lessons during the lockdown as she warned it could jeopardise students’ learning and “risk their mental health”.

In a letter to students ahead of the second lockdown in England, Ms Donelan has urged young people against travelling back to their families before the new national restrictions come into effect on Thursday.

She said: “I know and appreciate that a number of you may want to be back with your family during this difficult time, but I urge you to stay where you are in order to save lives.”

In a separate letter to vice-chancellors, the minister said she wants all students to have “some form of face-to-face learning” where possible, as they had not seen evidence of increased transmission within teaching environments on university campuses.

Ms Donelan said: “We expect you to continue to make informed decisions with your local public health teams on the level of face-to-face teaching and learning to provide, based on appropriate risk assessments and the needs of students and staff.

“We do not, however, want or Pts Terbaik Sumatera expect to see a transition to full online learning during the new national restrictions — this could jeopardise the learning that students receive, as well as risk their mental health and wellbeing.”

It comes after guidance from the Cabinet Office said universities and adult education settings “should consider moving to increased levels of online learning where possible” during the four-week lockdown.

The University and College Union (UCU) is calling on vice-chancellors to move all non-essential activities online now to keep students and staff safe and to minimise the spread of Covid-19.

But new Department for Education (DfE) guidance on what universities and students in England should do during the second lockdown says face-to-face teaching should continue where it can be done safely.

The guidance says “commuter students” – those who live at their family home and travel to the university campus for lessons – will still be allowed to attend the university for educational purposes during the lockdown.

It also advises that face coverings should be worn in all university learning environments, providing that they do “not impact teaching and learning.”

The new guidelines say libraries and study spaces on campus should remain open during the new national restrictions, but students must not gather in these spaces unless it is part of a scheduled in-person seminar or tutorial.

Students have been told to remain at university and not to travel home before November 5 so that they can “benefit from face-to-face teaching and Covid-secure educational facilities” and prevent the risk of spreading coronavirus.

Ms Donelan told students: “The reason we are asking you to remain at your university area and not to travel home before the new restrictions come into place on Thursday is to prevent any further spread of Covid-19 — any movement around the country will risk the lives of our loved ones.”

Hillary Gyebi-Ababio, vice president for higher education at the National Union of Students (NUS), has called the demands “unjust” and she warned the rules could be “damaging” to students’ mental health.

The NUS is calling for more “credible options” to be put on the table – including letting students leave their halls, releasing them from rental contracts, or allowing them to leave their course altogether.

Ms Gyebi-Ababio said: “With news of a national lockdown, some students will understandably want to reform households with family and be around loved ones.

“With current guidance allowing people to move homes and form new households until Thursday it is unjust that the Government calls on students to stay put.

“For students that do remain on campus over lockdown we need to see additional mental health and wellbeing support provided in recognition of how challenging this period will be.”

She added: “For too many months, students have been at the whim of ever-changing guidance and rules, often expecting them to adhere to tighter restrictions than the rest of the population.

“Not only is this fundamentally unfair, it is hugely damaging for students’ mental health and finances, with the uncertainty making it harder for many to access education. This must change.”

A Universities UK (UUK) spokeswoman said: “As the universities minister has made clear in her letters to vice-chancellors and to students, students should remain at university and teaching, learning and student support should continue.

“Universities and Government recognise the importance of face-to-face teaching and learning activities in Covid-secure facilities for students’ education, mental health and wellbeing. This will include libraries and learning spaces remaining open.”
