Keeping InTouch with King's 

InTouch - The Global Issue

Hello from the Editor

InTouch is the magazine for alumni of King's and related Colleges, published twice a year in print and online. Our latest edition takes the theme of Global.

Since joining King’s earlier this year, I’ve been struck by the global reach of the university, with a network of connections across the world. Indeed, 37% of students are from overseas, and there are over 48,000 alumni living outside of the UK.

There’s also our global perspective, and the success of the recent World questions | King’s answers campaign is testament to that.

With contributors from across the King’s community, I’ve brought together a range of stories featuring fellow alumni who come from – or have spent time in – many different corners of the world.

I would welcome any comments or feedback on this issue. Please complete the survey at, email me at with the subject line ‘InTouch’ or send a letter to our postal address.

With warm regards,
Fiona Gaw, Editor of InTouch

Last issue’s puzzle...
Broken stones
In the previous issue of In Touch, you read about a mathematics professor who bought a small farm in Shropshire, and the property came with a large balance scale and an old 40-pound stone. One morning while cleaning his barn, the professor dropped the stone and it broke into four pieces.
The professor, however, discovered that this was a good thing. Using these four pieces, he could now weigh any item – as long as these items were in one-pound increments – between one and 40 pounds. What did those four stones weigh?
The four pieces weighed one, three, nine and 27 pounds.
You might ask, then how would you weigh a five-pound bag of flour? By putting the bag, the three-pound stone and the one-pound stone on one side of the balance, and the nine-pound stone on the other. How about a 33-pound bag of feed? Put the bag and the three-pound stone on one side of the balance, and the 27-pound and nine-pound stones on the other.
Our winners, drawn at random, are Michael Channon (General Science, 1966), Roger Jones (Civil Engineering, 1961) and David Perry (Physics, 1986). 
Sentence along the lines of… Michael Channon and Roger Jones kindly donated their winnings to the College fund?
