Farewell to Stephen Hawking

Paying tribute to the wonderful Stephen Hawking with a few of his ‘inspirational quotes’. Thanks to Ana for reminding us about these.

“Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious, and however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do, and succeed at. It matters that you don’t just give up.”

“My advice to other disabled people would be, concentrate on things your disability doesn’t prevent you doing well, and don’t regret the things it interferes with. Don’t be disabled in spirit, as well as physically.”

 

 

 

 

Jack, ALS’s very own therapy dog at work

We’d like to share some thougths from two students who work with our ALS tutor Carolyn and Jack. Both these students wanted to share their unique experiences of meeting Jack.

Jack and AmyAmy,  Media Production: “I  have a big fear of dogs, but can cope with Jack the therapy dog at uni, been really stressed and sitting with him helped escape everything”

 

 

 

 

Annika, Forensic Biology:

“I am not a dog person but if you meet Jack you will be! A passive, non- threatening little furry friend who waits for you to approach him. He doesn’t bark or jump up. He has a bed in the office where you will find him lying in, or on the floor having a leisurely stroll- up and down the corridor. He is a special needs dog and his expert training is very prevalent.
He doesn’t judge you but just ‘is’ ; in case you need some comfort, calmness or distraction. I really recommend everyone to go and visit him.
At home I’m a cat person. At University I’m a dog person!!
Thank you”

Good job, Jack, keep up the good work!
