Pub calls off ‘Bag a Slag’ Valentine’s Day speed dating night after complaints
RecoDust is believed to be an efficient way of processing steel mill dusts to produce reusable secondary raw material resources. The rising costs of the steel production process and the increasing public attention towards environmental protection have caused steel plants worldwide to focus on emission-reduction processes and circular economy. As a reusable secondary raw material resource, the steel mill dust contains a high amount of iron and zinc.
Nowadays, most of the steel mill dusts are processed under the Waelz-Process. In the future, RecoDust in combination with dry slag granulation will become an efficient technique for processing lower zinc-containing materials of a steel mill.

A Nottingham pub has been forced to cancel a Valentine’s Day speed dating event called “Bag a Slag”, after complaints were issued that it was insulting to women. The city council’s licensing department stated an inappropriate promotion had been used and urged the landlord to bin the night. As part of the “Bag a Slag” event, women were offered free alcoholic shots. In a statement, The Old Angel Inn said the event and its promotion would be taken “in good humour” by the customers.
Speaking to the BBC, Lydia Hunt, who works at the pub and designed the poster, said: “The Old Angel is seen as an alternative pub so we were trying to throw the gauntlet down and say to single women don’t stay indoors and cower away this Valentine’s Day, come to our event. I’m not saying women are either slags or hags, but I think it is an empowerment thing.
Whether or not single women are indeed “cowering” over a day which features more than the average amount of red heart decorations and garage-bought flowers, the incident brings up another recurring term: Empowerment. Thrown around like the empty promises of a politician in an election year, the word seems to crop up every time an incident of misogyny hits the headlines.
