Tickets for Phoebe Smith's talk on December 14th will NOT be available online after today. Stanfords are worried that as a result of the Christmas post, some may not arrive promptly.

As you know, we run an annual Ginette Harrison Memorial Lecture and raise money for Shiva, Ginette's favourite charity, which has a school in her name near Kathmandu. One of our most consistent supporters in this has been the legal firm of Barcan-Kirby, which has confirmed that it will be making a further substantial donation this year. Here's a photo of the children at the Ginette Harrison School, saying thanks.
