There's been many injuries and pulling out of team members since we first registered ourselves for this mud run, but as it stands the Berko Ninjas will go against the Berko Beserkers tomorrow at the Warrior Adrenaline Race on Dunstable Downs. A 5km assault course of challenging obstacles in the mud (and rain by the looks of things). Did I mention the 20 kilo log that each team has to carry/drag round the course? Photos will be uploaded here next week....
Actively hiring top scientists and engineers, if you are an engineer wanting
to be a part of the full life cycle of a product, this could well be the
€billion company for you! This company designs, manufactures, tests and
integrates its own products (such as motors, power control, actuators and
generator systems) into the latest ‘all electric’ commercial & military
aircraft; you could be travelling on one of their aeroplanes the next time you
fly off to a sunnier climate!
You will receive great training and development, a good set of benefits and
the chance to work closely with other departments on the full product life cycle
in their large open-plan office environment. Modern facilities and strong
progression opportunities make this an exciting place to work.
Katie joins us from a London based consultancy where she worked closely with her
clients and developed excellent customer service skills. She has joined Adam’s
team where she is specialising in mechanical and manufacturing roles for a wide
range of applications. She brings a fresh approach and is looking to develop
close client and candidate relationships. Not sure of her cake making skills yet
– will have to put her to the test soon.
(electronically) and the loser has to bake a cake to feed the office.
Why? because we like
Who? everyone in the office. No one gets out of it.
When? 1st Monday of the month.
The rules: you make the cake yourself, without any help. You can't 'repeat' a
cake. Your cake will be judged on presentation, difficulty and taste, and
marked out of 10 by each colleague. When you have baked 3 cakes, you are out of
the competition for 1 year.
Chip Cake”by Jamie. Self described by Jamie as “the
easiest one he could make,” this Chocolate Chip sponge originally was not
intended to feature “Pancake” in the title. After a first attempt that didn't rise, and a second that didn't rise much more, Jamie concluded that it was a
combination of lack of ‘air’ and a confusion with the oven temperature that led
to his ultimate downfall. The sponge was made of your standard ingredients –
eggs, flour, sugar – with some generous helpings of chocolate chips to give
that extra bit of pizzazz. Jamie did admit that the cake could have been a bit more
substantial if he’d stuck the trial one on top with some icing - but he and his
family already ate that last night.
The Verdict:The general consensus
within the office was that the cake tasted “alright.” Top scores came from Nils
and Louise who especially enjoyed the thick, chocolatey flavouring. The fact that Jamie made a second cake after
the first fell through was also duly noted. Criticisms came with confusion
about what the cake was actually supposed to taste like. Descriptions of it
being a Shortbread-like-sponge were thrown about and Ellie couldn’t finish her
piece as the chewy texture “made her jaw hurt.”
Pancake Chocolate Chip Cake Average Score: 5.8
Next time:Andrew. Andrew’s last
Cake Monday was the first cake he had ever made alone. He now faces the dilemma
of knowing no other recipes, but as a rule, no cake can be done twice. Andrew’s
baking skills really will be put to the test next month.
17 months later, and Smritee
has still never lost the drinks dash and been forced to make a cake.
It's like the North/South divide in the office nowadays. Due to team growth (that's number-wise, not girth-wise), we've had to rearrange desks and a natural team divide has occurred. I say natural, some simply refer to it as the glorious "A Team" and the "B Team". So, does a six-inch gap between two teams of desks really create a psychological divide between people? Discuss..
