Hillsborough charity single is No. 1

A charity single – honouring the victims of one of Britain's worst-ever sporting disasters – that went on sale in stores and online on December 17 has become the UK's Christmas No. 1 on the pop music chart. According to the Official Charts Company, the cover track He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother by the ensemble The Justice Collective captured the top spot having sold 269,000 copies.

This is an annual tradition closely followed by British music fans, the Christmas No. 1 is based on sales and legal downloads during the week of Christmas.

Paul McCartney, former Spice Girl Mel C, Robbie Williams and Mick Jones of The Clash are among the famous figures who banded together as The Justice Collective to perform a cover of the Hollies' No 1 from 1969, and which is a benefit track to raise money for the families of those who died in the 1989 Hillsborough disaster.

A university lecturer is expected to do academic research and present and/or publish papers. And one requirement at Sunway University is to showcase our works at T-Talks which are organized internally. In the November-December months, five of us (i.e. Elizabeth Andrews and Derek Ong on November 23; Victor Ong and Dr Choy Tuck Yun on December 14; and Izian Idris on December 21), all from the SUBS Department of Business & Marketing made presentations –as can be seen from these photos:
