Harlem Shake has become meme #1 just in a few days, and I really think that this meme is one of the best ever. It’s not only about fun, but smartness and creativity. I suggest memes in the future will has a huge impact on different social processes, and it’s a great topic for a digital marketing research.
Meanwhile, some great videos from Imperial students:
Sorry for being out for a long time. Winter semester is really tough. It begun from two subjects: Digital Marketing and Pricing, and three more is to come from Monday, the 18th of February.
Digital Marketing was quite clear, maybe because I spent last two years doing marketing activities in Internet for different companies; maybe because we are all digital natives and all these are stuff inside our blood. Pricing might be difficult for guys without financial background; be ready to spend several hours in order to understand all materials, furthermore, some lectures are only available for self-studying. For one part of our syndicate group it became like a ‘good’ tradition to leave the library at midnight.
This year I started following Muay Thai practices at Imperial College. Muay Thai or Thai boxing is a highly dynamic form of martial arts, utilizing knees, elbows, shins and fists. I have been really enjoying it, it is not only great for your fighting skills, but also builds your mental strength and improves your fitness.
Last week, I filmed one of the practice to make a little video of what a Muay Thai training at Imperial is like and I would like to share the result with you (see the video below).
Muay Thai practices are held twice a week, on Wednesdays and Sundays in Union Gym 3 at Beit Quadrangle.
First of all, my sincerest apologies for posting after such a long time….
procrastination got the better of me!
I hope 2013 is off to a wonderful start for you all! Second semester, the first half has
flown by… I can’t believe it! 5 weeks since exams ended… Which I realise, I didn’t
even tell you about …. So will do a quick note on the exams. In short, 5 days, 5 exams
…back to back! Hell. ‘Nuff said. No but seriously, would strongly recommend keeping on top of your notes and reading
if possible because I found it significantly easier to revise for the exams I had done
this for, than those that I hadn’t.
I must start by first apologising for the lack of posts recently, I will promise to try and do better this term.
I had a great Christmas and managed to spend most of it on a beach free from the stresses of life at Imperial. Having exams before the holidays has one obvious advantage – for the first time I was actually able to have a proper break from University and come back re-energised for another term.
I felt that last term was a real scramble, with job applications, interviews, assignments and revision all piling up. But fear not, second term has been much more relaxed with fewer contact hours (3 modules compared to 4 in first term) and job-related pressures.
So after only a short weekend break (I think many of us could have used a week-long break) the time came to start the second semester, the spring term of my MSc. This module we’ll be following five different courses, one of which will last the whole semester, and the other four half a semester. I now following Health Economics, Management Challenges, and Managing Change and Innovation. Let me give you a brief overview of what it’s about:
Health Economics: as the name already says so, you will be studying economics. Mostly related to health care, but also a lot of wider applicable topics such as supply and demand curves.
