Interests: The 54° North Video Bibliothèque produces educational and learning media for a new visual pedagogy. As a native of the digital world, my work involves delivering concepts end to end and fulfilling different roles on the same project by creating ideas, writing, producing, directing, shooting and editing all work. Eddy Jackson MBE, is a photojournalist and a video producer supporting outstanding organizations and people. Building upon a Farmington Fellowship at the Harris Manchester College, Oxford and using this research pedagogy, the aim is about stimulating critical thinking, encouraging new insights, experiences, and changing perceptions. The objective is to show familiar things in a fresh, new light. It is about educating, informing, and raising awareness. A MANIFESTO FOR THE VISUAL IMAGE "If art reflects life, it does so with special mirrors." BERTOLT BRECHT. Audio, photography, video, and language facilitate this process. Eddy Jackson

The Christmas videos produced by John Lewis, Boots, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, and others are the highlight of the year for me. I think that there is real competition between them to produce the most entertaining. For me, the sentimentalities of the Yule Tide seasonal activities create a warm glow of well-being and consideration for others. Do you have a favourite? What do you like? However, you may not like the commercialisation, and the commodification. But that’s life. I hope you enjoy this choice of Christmas videos. For a different slant, check out seasonal pop videos at the Lancashire Speakers Club; Continue reading

I love the Christmas videos produced by John Lewis, Boots, Sainsbury’s, and Waitrose. I think that there is real competition between them to produce the most entertaining. For me, the appeal is emotional based upon a sentimental feeling of the Yule Tide seasonal activities. Do you have a favourite? What do you like? You may not like the commercialisation, and this leads to an important concept. Continue reading

Families thrive and exist throughout the world in contrasting communities, cultures, and societies. In the ideal world, the glue that holds it together is based upon trust support, affection, intimacy, and support. The concept of family refers to a group who are related by emotional, strong psychological, adoptive, sexual, or biological bonds. From the birth of siblings and in the early years the family is the primary object of individuals orientation. Continue reading

Another issue is the tidal currents in the Faroes. Although the rise and fall is only a meter or less, the currents generated through the many narrow passages can be fierce, and the overfalls (breaking standing waves) near the entrances to these passages can be frightening and may be dangerous. A local publication with hourly diagrams called Tidal Current Around the Faroe Islands created by Fischer Heinesen is worth having aboard — but is presumably only available after you get there and is useless unless you have local knowledge of when high water occurs.

I was brought up on the River Hamble near the Moody yard where the Moody 31 was built. The Kemp spars come from Southampton. I jumped at the opportunity to sail this yacht. Solidly constructed and a sound yacht to sail we had great fun in contrasting weather cruising the Hebrides. The Eberspacher heater was put to good use, Continue reading

Advice So what are the real reasons for giving advice? Are they the suggestions which you give someone else which you hope will work for your benefit? Or is that just limited to the less scrupulous of the salesmen around of double glazing and cars? But isn’t advice regarded as... Continue reading

"As Graham Davies, a former barrister who has given presentation coaching and speech-polishing tips to many senior politicians, says: “One of the things that people find frightening about public speaking is not having a process to prepare. I give people a process. Speaking is a matter of two things: deciding what to say, and saying it. And you can break that process down.” Continue reading

Thanks for your comments and suggestions Mark. They are useful. Club members now need to respond, reflect, consider the implications, and future development of the club. Let’s see what may be possible by incorporating this into a formal agenda item for action via David, the SLSC President.
Let’s remember absent friends, those that cannot make it tonight but in particular, I ask you to think of Robert McLaren. As some of you know, six months ago, while walking on Goat Fell, he slipped and cracked his head. Robert died instantly. What a tragedy for such an experienced walker. Continue reading

It was agreed that the structuring of meetings had to be looked at. It was felt that Evaluations of Speeches and Topics, particularly for the newer members is very important. It was agreed that we would have two prepared Speeches, Evaluations and the Topics Session would be used to ‘fill in’ the time available. It was also agreed that it was extremely important that all members present should be given the opportunity to speak at every meeting. Discussions took place as to other areas where training could be given. Continue reading
