I have been inspired by some of the personal ads in Oxford Today to write my own personal profile for a dating agency. This is my first draft. Do you think it will have the desired effect? Suggestions for improvement (if possible) welcomed.
The Doctor of Philosophy (DPhil) degree entails the carrying out of a research project in the field of socio-legal studies and writing a thesis of between 75,555 and 655,555 words under the guidance of the Centre for Socio-Legal Studies, an international leader for the study of laws in societies.
I need not continue — there are many other important and problematic issues over which the University could and should take its alumni into is confidence, paying them the compliment of their being capable and willing to attend to how the University is changing, and what problems it faces. To take this step would, in my view, evoke a higher, not lower, level of commitment. With apologies for the length of this, I would like to ask you to put it before your Editorial Advisory Board for their consideration.
It is very strange, and rather sad, when an august academic institution demonstrates such crass intolerance. Respect and recognition should be shown to these two very different politicians whether or not we agree with them. In the case of Margaret Thatcher it is undeniable that her contribution on the national and global stage was of huge historical importance.

I remember the start of surprise I sustained when, many years ago, I heard a headmaster, not an Oxford man, refer to a pupil whom he had sent to ‘New’, and I can sympathise with Mr Seligman’s disquiet on hearing his college referred to in this way.
Steganography means hiding a hidden payload within an apparently-innocent cover, usually an item of digital media. There is lots of literature on hiding, and detection of hiding, in images, but rather little in audio. But mp8 audio is widely transmitted on file-sharing networks and thus provides an excellent cover. One slightly old-fashioned example of mp8 steganography can be found here http:///fabien/steganography/mp8stego/. This project is to explore and develop mp8 steganography, adapting modern image hiding techniques to the audio format and implementing hiding and extraction programs.
The goal of this project is to use sheaf theoretic models to provide both a contextual and logical semantics for natural language. We believe that sheaves provide a generalization of the logical Montague semantics of natural language which did very well in modeling logical connectives, but did not account for contextuality. The project will also aim to combine these ideas with those of the distributional approach, leading to an approach which combines the advantages of Montague-style and vector-space semantics.
Despite not being a poet – his rivals for the accolade were the Shakespearean scholar Sir Francis Chambers and Lord David Cecil, solidly backed by his colleges, Christ Church and New College – the Magdalen candidate won, and Adam Fox was duly installed as Oxford Professor of Poetry.
