  1. Congratulations guys !! i hope to see you the SPr COnference then !!
  2. why 70 places... the conference dinner is at lumley castle ( with a medival murder mystery. We had to commit number and pay them and hence looking at attendances in the past we quoted 70 hence after 70 places have been given up, the delegates will get to attend the conference but the dinner might be difficult. btw the places are still available please contact me if you need the flyer in the post...
  3. Hi It is usually held where the organiser is from. Couple of years back it was in Aberdeen. Last year in Manchester. Durham is a very beautiful city the location of the conferece is on the river bank overlooking the cathedral. Rightly pointed out its only a 3 hr train journey from London Kings X and 2.5 hrs from Manchester on a direct route ! and its a UK wide conference with people coming from Scotland! there are flights from heathrow, bristol, belfast, etc to Newcastle and Durham Tees Valley Airport. There are some fantastic services here (e.g. only female DSPD in the country, One of the four male dspd units, the only sexual behaviour unit in te country) I suggest Sam do come over and I bet you will be surprised.

  10. The word actor refers to a person who acts regardless of sex, while actress refers specifically to a female person who acts; therefore a female can be both. The Oxford English Dictionary states that originally ''actor' was used for both sexes. The English word actress does not derive from the Latin actrix, probably not even by way of French actrice; according to the Oxford English Dictionary, actress was 'probably formed independently' in English. As actress is a specifically feminine word, some feminists assert that the word is sexist. Gender-neutral usage of actor has re-emerged in modern English,[4][5] especially when referring to male and female performers collectively, but actress remains the common term used in major acting awards given to female recipients and is still common in general usage.
