student cringes after joining zoom lecture with a very rude moniker

A student who joined an online lecture with a very rude name attached to her Zoom account has seen her blunder go viral on Twitter.

Twitter user Anne Marie Mackey sparked a storm after she shared a hilarious image of herself during her first college lecture, appearing with the moniker ‘big t***y b***h’.

She explained she’d used the expletive-laden name in April during a lockdown Zoom party with her friends and had forgotten to change it before logging on for her new semester. 

Mackey’s tweet, posted under the handle @noodlehead, has already been seen more than 470,000 times since she it was uploaded two days ago.

Warning fellow Zoom users not to make the same cringe-worthy mistake, she penned a capped-up missive, saying: ‘This is your reminder to CHANGE YOUR SCREEN NAME ON ZOOM BEFORE YOU GO BACK TO COLLEGE.’

She added: ‘I JUST JOINED MY FIRST ZOOM MEETING LECTURE AND MY NAME CAME UP ON THE SCREEN AS ‘BIG T***Y B***H’ FROM A F***KING ZOOM PARTY WITH MY FRIENDS IN F***KING APRIL.’

After the faux-pas went viral, Anne Marie decided to back off from the storm after attracting negative comments but this morning announced she was back online, saying: ‘I’m a bad b***h you cant kill me.’ 

There was reassurance that at least she wasn’t the only one, as others began sharing their own embarrassing Zoom name gaffes in solidarity.

@regcrawford3 relayed a Zoom call with a pizza face, saying: ‘My wife’s boss chaired a video meeting with her face overlaid with a pizza. The overlay was so good it looked as if the pizza was talking. The meeting was about the surgery moving to digital prescriptions. The Practice Manager knew she was a pizza but didn’t know how to change it.’ 

@francesthoughts disclosed: ‘My kiddo (she’s 8) decided to try and join her class meeting with the name “I hate my life” leading to a fun call from the teacher, school nurse, guidance counselor, and school social worker. She was just angry bc the milk had gone bad and she couldn’t have her cereal.’

Last month @FionaLeverick had recounted: ‘So today I joined a meeting with a High Court judge and Scottish Law Commission with my Zoom name as Gruntasnorus Poo Face. How’s your day going?’

croydon tram crash families of dead demand apology from driver

The families of seven people who died in a tram crash in Croydon, south east London, have demanded to meet with the driver to receive an apology.

Seven people were killed and a further 51 were injured in the incident which occurred on November 9 2016.

The tram came off the tracks at almost four times the speed limit in darkness and heavy rain and it was alleged that the driver, Alfred Dorris, had drifted into a ‘microsleep’.

Mr Dorris was arrested at the scene but charges of gross negligence and manslaughter were later dropped by the British Transport Police (BTP).

No charges of corporate manslaughter were brought against Transport for London (TfL) or operator Tram Operations Ltd (TOL), a subsidiary of FirstGroup.

A pre-inquest review at Croydon Town Hall heard on Friday that Mr Dorris would be unable to attend the inquest as he was ‘unwell’.

But Andrew Ritchie QC, representing five of the seven victims’ families, said they did ‘not feel comfortable’ with Mr Dorris’ absence.

He said that the families had to satisfy a ‘human need to see the man and hear him apologise’.

Mr Richards suggested a meeting take place ‘either via video conference or a face-to-face, just to hear his apology in some way, so the families can put that need to bed’.

Dane Chinnery, 19, Philip Logan, 52, Philip Seary, 57, Dorota Rynkiewicz, 35, and Robert Huxley, 63, all from New Addington, and Mark Smith, 35, and Donald Collett, 62, both from Croydon, were all killed in the crash.

Mr Ritchie represents the families of Mr Logan, Mr Seary, Ms Rynkiewicz, Mr Smith, and Mr Collett.

The families of Mr Chinnery and Mr Huxley are represented by Giles Mooney QC.

A full inquest is due to open on October 19 2020.

The inquest is expected to hear arguments that the case was one of human error and failings of the transport system.

Berlin council staff told to avoid phrases like ‘asylum seeker’

berlin council staff told to avoid phrases like asylum seeker

Political correctness has invaded and struck at the heart of Germany with a series of strange new phrases in a new diversity-sensitive language guide.

Berlin city council  has told state employees in the capital to watch their language to avoid offence.

New guidelines put in place by the nanny state authority have led to guidance on every day phrases that they say should not be used. 

Among the many phrases targeted by the PC brigade is asylum seeker. According to the new guide this term is misleading as there is a fundamental right to asylum.

Instead state employees should use the term persons requiring protection.

Foreigners should be replaced with ‘residents without German citizenship’ and people with a migrant background should be referred to as ‘people with an international history.’

State workers in Berlin have been issued politically correct guidance which lists phrases they should not use

The new rules have been criticised across Germany.

Gunnar Schupelius, a commentator on the local daily newspaper BZ, said that a ‘clique’ of politicians was trying to influence people to believe what they think is right. 

He wrote that they want to ensure people ‘behave in accordance with their political ideology.’

The guidance has been turned into a 44-page guide and it forms part of a national diversity programme.

It aims to train Berlin’s state employees to communicate ‘with the people in this city,’ regardless of their sexuality, gender, age, disability, religion or ethnic origin.

The booklet also states that if someone changes gender then officials should not say gender change but gender realignment.

While the German phrase Schwarz fahren, which translates as riding black, and is a widely used German term for fare dodging on public transport should not be used at all.

There are no penalties for failing to adhere to the PC Brigade’s list of pointless changes as they are only a set of recommendations.

The PC guide was written by the State Office for Equal Treatment Against Discrimination, which is run by Justice Senator Dirk Behrendt, from the Green Party.

Berlin’s centre-left city government is a coalition of the Greens with the Social Democrats and Left Party.

Mr Behrendt, in a press statement, said: ‘Berlin is home to people from many different backgrounds and in very different situations

‘Berliners should understand the administration as their own and therefore the administration should also be open to this diversity.

‘If the diversity of Berlin is reflected in the administration, then that is a benefit for the entire city.’

Patrick Valance, worth £10m, could become even richer from vaccine

patrick valance worth 10m could become even richer from vaccine

The doom-saying expert whose Coronavirus fears saw new restrictions imposed on Britain is the richest mandarin in Whitehall, worth £10million – and could become even richer if his former employers develop a vaccine.

Sir Patrick Vallance, the Government Chief Scientific Adviser, projected a gloomy forecast this week for the Covid-19 pandemic as infections rose sharply.

It came two days before it was revealed he holds a deferred bonus of 43,111 shares in GlaxoSmithKline, worth £600,000 from his time as president of the multinational drug company.

The firm is one of many trying to develop a vaccine to treat deadly coronavirus as a further 6,874 people tested positive today. The Government said there was no conflict of interest and he had done nothing wrong.

GSK – one of 20 firms racing to find a cure – is where Sir Patrick earned part of the sizeable fortune that allows he and his family to live a life of luxury.  

In a rare interview in 2015 he shot down critics who suggested he took the corporate role for the money after an academic early career at University College London.

He insisted to Radio 4’s The Life Scientific: ‘There’ll be people that carp and say you’ve gone to the dark side, you’ve done it for money, whatever.

‘There’s nothing you can do about that. That’s why the personal reputation bit you need to be comfortable with, before you make a decision like that.’

He went on to say he chose the company for the good it could do in bringing important new treatments to the world. 

Currently he and his family live in a substantial semi-detached Victorian house worth £1.8million, which they bought in 2018 with cash.

They had to complete extensive renovations after it had been left completely gutted by a fire before they were involved in the property.

Parked on the drive was an R-class Mercedes which can cost up to £30,000 when bought new.

It is not known whether it belongs to his doctor wife Sophia Ann or any of their children.

The property is one of the largest on the well-heeled street, which is lined with expensive cars.

A local said: ‘It is the poshest house in the area, to look at it you would think someone very important must live there.’

Sir Patrick was born in Essex in 1960 and educated at Truro school in Cornwall, which costs nearly £30,000 to board now. 

He had considered being a chef but then began a life in science and medicine at university before going to GSK.

It would be the role that catapulted him to the prominence he holds today, so well-known he has own entry in Who’s Who, which lists his hobbies as ‘mushrooming, cooking, gardening’ and ‘playing tennis badly’.

Just 12 days into the job he was rubbing shoulders with royalty, pictured with Prince Andrew at an event. 

After six years at GSK his base salary as Executive Director was £780,000 a year.

When he left he cashed in £5 million worth of shares he got from them from his time working there until March 2018.

And in 2017 when he took his current role as Government Chief Scientific Adviser Nature, the international weekly science journal, said his salary was up to £180,000 a year – more than the Prime Minister. 

Now he is one of the most recognisable faces in Britain, after standing next to him day after day for the summer’s coronavirus press conferences. 

As Professor of primary care at Oxford University Trisha Greenhalgh said at the start of lockdown in March ‘I knew Patrick Vallance before he was famous’.
