Gresham College was founded in 1557 under the will of Sir Thomas Gresham for the purpose of providing free public lectures of a high academic standard. We continue to fulfill this role, with lectures at Barnard's Inn and the Museum of London, although we have dropped the original obligation to repeat each lecture in Latin. All lectures are streamed on line on the Gresham College Facebook page and via the Gresham College website. Past lectures and written transcripts are on the website for viewing and free download. Think of Gresham College as London's version of Ted Talks.

Roger Were the directors actually making a discretionary purchase of the shares, or was it an automatic purchase as a result of their remuneration agreements? The announcements make it seem the latter.

Another request for MJ Gleeson (LON:GLE) and Tern (LON:TERN) please. I hold both and at first look both sets of results seem more positive than I had expected.

Off topic, but today's RNS from Malvern International (LON:MLVN) listing the 67 other directorships currently held by their new NED, Nirvana Chaudhary, must be a record (I hope!).
