first_imgThe Oxford Guild has announced that Kanye West will be giving a talk at the Oxford University Museum of Natural History.At 11pm this evening (March 1st), the Guild’s Facebook page created an event entitled “Kanye West speaks to the Oxford Guild Business Society”, and reported that West would be speaking at the Museum of Natural History tomorrow (March 2nd), at 3pm.According to the event page, the first batch of tickets will go on sale at midnight, with further releases at 2am, and at 9am tomorrow morning.Students were encouraged to sign up to a random ballot for tickets. However, the organisers were keen to emphasise that students would be chosen completely at random.The Guild told Cherwell that as of 12.30am, over 1,800 students had balloted for tickets.Once selected, students will have two hours in which to buy their tickets before the link expires.Abbas Kazmi, Chairman of the Oxford Guild, told Cherwell, “We are very excited to be hosting such an inspiring and high profile a speaker as the legendary Kanye West and expect it to be a fascinating and memorable event.“It is great to see the hard work pay off after having spent many hours negotiating against the odds and keeping things under wraps to secure this event, which is a real coup for the Guild, which I am proud to see continuing to grow from strength to strength, reaching even higher heights and winning ever more national awards and accolades.”He continued to thank the Guild committee, and went on to say, “This is the first in a series of incredibly high profile speakers the Guild has lined up. We have been working industriously behind the scenes and would recommend you watch this space!” There has been no word yet on the subject of West’s speech, but the rapper has been outspoken about business in recent years, condeming, among others, Louis Veitton.West is in the UK for the Brit Awards, where he performed on February 25th, revealing on Twitter last night that his upcoming album is to be titled So Help Me God.So Help Me God pic.twitter.com/e3UUsQQEts— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) March 1, 2015Kazmi also told Cherwell that a full video of the talk will be available, and explained the reasoning behind the event’s ticketing system. “We do not want students to waste their afternoons queuing outside the Union chamber Frewin Court for example, only not to be let in and to be left disappointed. Nor do we want students to ballot and then not turn up leaving empty seats which have been taken by others.”He also emphasised that only Oxford-registered emails would be valid in the ballot.Sean O’Neill, of Hertford College, was one of the first students to secure a ticket. He remarked to Cherwell, “I get to be in the same room as Kanye West! This is so great it almost makes me like the Oxford Guild.”Oliver Johnston-Watt, a member of the general committee, commented, “Aside from the executive, only two other committee members knew about this. When the first e-mail came in I thought it was some kind of joke but with Kanye being in the UK at the moment for the Brits it all started to make sense.He remarked that it was “absolutely outrageous for any student society to bring in a speaker like Kanye West.“Clearly,” he continued, “the Oxford Guild mean business.”last_img read more

first_img However, it has since been reported that Ter Stegen – widely viewed as one of the world’s elite goalkeepers – will pen a new and improved contract through to 2025. With a buyout clause of €180m, there is no great concern at the Camp Nou about the situation but they have had to push back their forecasts of an agreement. The 27-year-old has demonstrated he is one of football’s elite goalkeepers with a series of world-class performances for the Blaugrana, whom he joined from Borussia Mochengladbach in 2014 for €12m. Ter Stegen has been described as a tall, agile and consistent goalkeeper, with quick reflexes, good decision-making and excellent shot-stopping abilities; he is also strong in the air, good in one-on-one situations, and effective at communicating with his back-line courtesy of his strong personality. He initially was number two to Claudio Bravo at the club before establishing himself as first-choice, and is currently above summer arrival Neto in the pecking order.

A report from Diario Sport claims that officials from the Blues are aware of the qualities of the German shot-stopper and believe he would be a significant upgrade on current Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga. However, the report adds that the West London club acknowledge this is as an ‘impossible dream’ so whilst they do hold an interest in Ter Stegen, neither the player nor the Catalan giants are in any mood to enter negotiations. Indeed, a separate report from El Mundo Deportivo claims Kepa could be offered in exchange as part of an approach from Stamford Bridge. The German goalkeeper’s current deal at the Camp Nou runs through until the summer of 2022, after he penned an extended contract in 2017 but contract talks have stalled amid the financial uncertainty following the coronavirus pandemic.Advertisement Read Also: Chinese football gets go-ahead after 2,000 negative virus testsEarlier this month, Chelsea transfer news also saw them linked to another La Liga custodian with reported interest in a move to land Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak.However, it remains highly unlikely that either of the Spanish clubs will be willing to enter into negotiations for their prized assets.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 last_img read more
