#FreeBritney movement continues as spears denied suspension request

Jul 1 2021 Share

Supporters of the #FreeBritney movement remain in outrage after Britney Spears was denied her court request to remove her reportedly ‘abusive’ father from conservatorship.

The 39-year-old former pop star has been enthralled in a legal battle to remove her father’s conservatorship and regain control of her estate following after her infamous meltdown back in 2008 and a subsequent number of trials and tribulations.

Hundreds of celebrities took to social media to share their support and sympathy with Britney including the likes of Iggy Azalea, Kesha, Dua Lipa, Tiesto and many more.

Amongst many controversial conditions of the conservatorship, the arrangement allows Britney’s father to control her career and finances (in turn, making money) along with not allowing her to marry or have children.

MCAST ICT students to have lectures in summer due to ‘forgotten’ unit

MCAST ICT students to have lectures in summer due to 'forgotten' units
Jul 1 2021 Share

Would-be MCAST ICT graduates have been notified that they will have to conduct one final unit over the summer due to a ‘noticed error’ in the curriculum.

One student noted that after handing in their dissertation and ‘parting ways in peace’ received an abrupt email notifying the student that the forgotten unit will be held over the summer break between July 6 and August 6 with two 3-hour lectures per week via Microsoft Teams.

One student noted that this will be a very hurdle to cross due to full-time work and planned holidays, beyond the fact that lecture will have to be held during the supposed summer holidays.

It has been noted that such shortcomings often go undeterred, to the detriment of the students, and this situation in particular may disrupt summer plans previously made by the prospective graduates.
