I'm listening to the Joshua Tree remaster right now, for some reason I always listen in the normal order album followed by b-sides, even though it'd probably sound better if I mixed it around a bit

I hate Bono's voice on the Elevation Tour. Vertigo just sounds better, all around.
Yeah. Australia was lucky that its dollar in 2002 was dodgy and U2 didn't bring Elevation's suckiness here.

I wish Is That All were placed in the same bin as the album version of Elevation, lit on fire, and fed to Chris Martin.

I like Is That All?.

Then I found out it was pretty much a disguised version of the Electric Co and realised why I like it.

How incredibly sweet would it be if they decided to play Lady With The Spinning Head for the Sloth tour?

A WIDENING gulf between international and local students has prompted warnings of resentment and a backlash on Australian university campuses, as overseas student numbers continue to grow.

The warnings come amid increasing concern over "fragility" in the sector arising from its dependence on international students. On average, universities derive 15% of their funding from overseas-student fees.

One of Australia's leading higher-education experts warns that despite the atmosphere on campuses generally supporting international students, there is "informal but real segregation" that could fuel tensions.

Claims of a divide have been backed up by student representatives.

Local students tended to work off campus and were not active in student life, while international students spent most of their time on campus, generally in the library, Professor Simon Marginson, of Melbourne University's Centre for Higher Education, told The Age.

"So you've got this odd situation with the local students half disengaged in a way I've never really seen before," he said.

"The international-student industry runs off the back of a reasonably strong local system which presumes a healthy relationship with the local students … all of that has become the marketing pitch.

"That's the flashpoint that worries me more than any other - that it could spring back into resentment."

National Union of Students president Angus McFarland said students were concerned about a lack of interaction.

That's right, send the damn fools back where they came from! They don't try to integrate with the Australian way of life, don't even try to learn conversational English because there are so many of them... They're taking away opportunities that local students need to get.
