UK workers are the most insecure about their jobs

first_img Previous Article Next Article UK workers are the most insecure about their jobsOn 8 Apr 2003 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. The UK’s working population suffers more anxiety over their jobs than staffemployed in any other developed economy. A survey by Right Coutts of nearly 10,000 staff worldwide, shows 28 per centof the UK’s workforce believe they could lose their job in the next 12 months. The second most insecure workers are in the US, where 27 per cent areconcerned about the future of their jobs. In Japan, 20.5 per cent of staff have job security concerns, while thefigure in Germany is 14.9 per cent, and 13.7 per cent in France. Just 4 per cent of workers in Italy are worried about their jobs, and only5.7 per cent are worried in Belgium and Norway, making them the most secure. Jo Bond, deputy managing director at consultancy Right Coutts, said staff inthe UK and the US feel least secure about their jobs because employers havemore power to hire and fire in these countries. “This survey shows that job insecurity is being felt most by UK staff,despite the recent fall in unemployment seen in UK government figures,”said Bond. “Workers in some countries – notably Belgium and Italy – are lessworried about redundancy, perhaps due to the existence of stronger lawsprotecting employees’ rights in those countries. “By contrast, the US and UK job markets are more flexible, andemployers have more power to ‘hire and fire’.” However, the study also reveals that UK workers are relatively optimisticabout their chances of obtaining similarly paid jobs if made redundant, with 21per cent believing this would be easy, compared to just 4 per cent in Germany,and 8 per cent in Italy.

Cambrian palaeomagnetic data confirm a Natal Embayment location for the Ellsworth-Whitmore Mountains, Antarctica, in Gondwana reconstructions

first_imgThe Ellsworth-Whitmore Mountains (EWM) are one of five terranes that form West Antarctica. Constraining the positions of these terranes in pre-break up Gondwana is crucial to understanding the history of the palaco-Pacific Gondwana margin. We report the results of a detailed palaeomagnetic investigation of the EWM, which comprises some 150 sites in six formations, ranging in age from Cambrian to Permian. Five of the studied units yield only viscous remnant magnetizations of recent age, or unstable natural remanent magnetizations. The remaining unit, the mid-late Cambrian Frazier Ridge Formation, yielded stable magnetizations at 16 of 35 sites. This component passes a fold test at the 95 per cent confidence level, indicating that it pre-dates Permian deformation, and we argue that it is of primary origin. The resulting palaeopole (9degreesN; 293degreesE; A(95) = 5.1degrees) is in good agreement with two previously published palaeopoles from similarly aged rocks in the EWM. Collectively these data indicate that the EWM were located in the Natal Embayment prior to Gondwana break-up, and underwent 90degrees of anticlockwise rotation during break-up. All three studies, however, yield inclinations that are slightly too shallow when compared with coeval Gondwana reference poles.last_img read more

Meet the new ‘Mr Inventories’ as AIIC appoints new chair

first_imgHome » News » Meet the new ‘Mr Inventories’ as AIIC appoints new chair previous nextProducts & ServicesMeet the new ‘Mr Inventories’ as AIIC appoints new chairDaniel Evans says he’s perfectly placed to help inventory clerks navigate the ‘troubled waters’ facing the sector.Nigel Lewis6th July 20200815 Views The new acting head of the Association of Independent Inventory Clerks (AIIC) says he is the ideal person to lead the sector as it navigates ‘troublesome waters’.Daniel Evans is replacing the outgoing chair of the AIIC Daniel Zane who says he wants to spend more time with his family.Evans is the MD of 17-year-old Surrey firm Home Inventories and his experience includes a background in computer science, considerable knowledge of the lettings industry and two years spent on the AIIC board.The AIIC says he is an ideal candidate for the job because of his industry network of contacts and ‘personable and approachable character’.Inventories issues“I’m always keen to hear from people who have views on the role of inventories or external suppliers in general and my current focus is on liaising with industry stakeholders to ensure that I’m perfectly placed to partner with people to navigate the troublesome waters the industry is facing,” he tells The Negotiator.Zane will be a hard act to follow, having worked tirelessly to raise the profile of the independent inventory inspection sector, although occasionally he’s made controversial claims about some high street agents.This has included a campaign to persuade government to make independent inventories mandatory and highlighting the role of inspectors in the tsunami of regulation that has hit the private rental market in recent years.He has also worked with civil servants on policy initiatives including the looming ‘property MOTs’.“It is with a heavy heart that I step down. I feel now is a good time to handover to our strong board with an acting chair,” he says. daniel evans daniel zane inventories AIIC Association of Independent Inventory Clerks July 6, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Speech: Health and Social Care Secretary’s statement on coronavirus (COVID-19): 12 April 2020

first_imgCoronavirus press conference: 12 April 2020Good afternoon and welcome back to Downing Street for today’s daily coronavirus briefing. I’m joined today by Dr Yvonne Doyle, Medical Director at Public Health England.And, before I outline the latest on coronavirus and the work that we’re doing as a government to tackle it, I wanted to briefly update you about the Prime Minister’s condition.It’s great news that the Prime Minister has been discharged from hospital and is now continuing his recovery at Chequers. I hope everyone has seen his message of love, and thanks to all those who’ve supported his recovery and to the NHS colleagues who have cared for him so brilliantly at St Thomas’s Hospital. I know that they have cared for him as they would care for anybody in this country and it’s one of the things that makes me so proud ‒ that the NHS is there for us all and can give its very best to every single person and has been able to throughout this crisis.I know that all of his thoughts are with those affected by this illness, and of course the government is working constantly through our coronavirus action plan. And the aim is to protect life and to protect the NHS, both by slowing the spread of the virus to flatten the curve and by ensuring that the NHS is always there for you and always has more than enough capacity to meet the demands that are placed on it.Today marks a sombre day in the impact of this disease as we join the list of countries who have seen more than 10,000 deaths related to coronavirus.The fact that over 10,000 people have now lost their lives to this invisible killer demonstrates just how serious coronavirus is and why the national effort that everyone is engaged in is so important.According to the most recent figures, 282,374 people have now been tested for coronavirus. 84,279 have tested positive. Across Great Britain, the number of people admitted to hospital with coronavirus symptoms is now 19,945 and, of those who’ve contracted the virus, 10,612 have tragically died. Our sincere condolences are with all of them, with their families, their friends. Their grief is our grief, and their stories will not be forgotten.On Friday, I said that staying at home this Easter weekend would be a major test of the nation’s resolve. And I am pleased to say that the nation is rising to this challenge. I know that for some people this has been extra tough, if you’re at home with children, if you can’t visit relatives because they’re shielding, if you’re unable to go to church on this most important day for Christians. Your steadfast commitment to following the social distancing rules is making a difference. Thank you for the part that you are playing in helping to protect lives at this critical time in our nation’s history.But we cannot be complacent, not when there is so much is at stake, so, please, keep going, stay home, protect the NHS and save lives.Today, I want to provide an update on the work we’re doing to slow the spread of the virus and to build capacity. The latest figures show that in Great Britain we have 2,295 spare critical care beds, up 150 from yesterday.So, throughout this crisis, with all challenges that we’ve been dealing with, all the operational difficulties and all of the logistics, we have always been able to provide the very best of care to everybody who needs it through the NHS.At the start of the crisis, people said that the NHS would be overwhelmed and we’ve seen that, and we’ve seen the risk of that, elsewhere, but not here. And that is because of the action that a huge number of people have taken, the incredible work of so many.There is more spare capacity now for critical care than there was when coronavirus first hit our shores. And this is before the Nightingale hospitals come on stream. London’s has opened, and we’re already in process of building 6 more around England.This critical expansion is partly because we have a record number of ventilators, 9,775, and partly because we have record numbers of returners coming back and rejoining the NHS. Over 5,000 former staff are now back on the NHS frontline and over 36,000 have come forward to enlist. And this bolstered capacity has been backed by substantial financial support. As the Chancellor has said, whatever our NHS and vital public services need during this time, they will have.But of course there is always more that must be done. So, we’re increasing the amount of PPE and I’m glad to say that there are now record amounts in the system. And we need the right amounts of medicine too, and I can assure everyone that we’re working very closely with the pharmaceutical supply chain and hospital pharmacies so that the right medicines are there to treat people. And I’m glad to see the reassurances that have been provided today that everybody can have the medicines they need in order to get the care that they need.And when we debate the operational challenges we face, I want to be transparent about every single one. Let us not forget that the core measure of NHS capacity, which is what matters to you when you or one of your loved ones needs it, is whether you can get the best care if you catch coronavirus. On that, we are succeeding and in fact succeeding more with each passing day.I also wanted to provide a brief update on the work on PPE, which is so important for NHS and social care staff. I pay tribute to our health and care staff who, this weekend, just like every weekend, are giving the best possible care. On Thursdays, on streets, front doors and balconies up and down the country, we’ve seen the esteem with which the whole nation holds our carers, the people who make the NHS and social care what it is, and we owe it to them to get them the equipment that they need.On Friday, we published a comprehensive PPE plan, which is based on everyone using the right PPE according to the agreed guidelines. And, daily, we’re delivering millions of items to the frontline.Now I know that there have also been questions about gowns. In the last 2 days, 121,000 gowns have been delivered around the country, and more are going out today and in the week to come. So, we’re working very hard to resolve all of these individual logistical challenges.It’s worth saying that the average time for dealing with PPE queries has gone down from 6 days in March to an average of 2 and half days over the past week. And, since we published the plan last week, I’m delighted with the sheer number of businesses that have come forward to help with our PPE effort, even over the bank holiday weekend. Thank you to all of you and to all those that are involved in this enormous, herculean effort on PPE, and I know that we’ll see many more businesses coming forward and I look forward to it.Testing, of course, has a huge role in our response and we have discussed repeatedly testing at these press conferences. I’m pleased to say that 42,812 NHS and social care staff and their families have now been tested. And, as we ramp up our ability to test in large numbers, we also need to make sure we have the ability to trace contacts just as effectively.And so, today, I wanted to outline the next step: a new NHS app for contact tracing. If you become unwell with the symptoms of coronavirus, you can securely tell this new NHS app, and the app will then send an alert anonymously to other app users that you’ve been in significant contact with over the past few days, even before you had symptoms, so that they know and can act accordingly.All data will be handled according to the highest ethical and security standards and would only be used for NHS care and research and we won’t hold it any longer than it’s needed. And, as part of our commitment to transparency, we will be publishing the source code too. We’re already testing this app and, as we do this, we’re working closely with the world’s leading tech companies and renowned experts in clinical safety and digital ethics so that we can get this right.I want to thank all of these world-leading experts who’ve been involved. The more people who get involved, then the better informed our response to coronavirus will be and the better we can protect the NHS.Her Majesty the Queen spoke for all of us, as she so often does, when she said that Easter is not cancelled and that we need it now more than ever. This is an uncertain Easter for so many people. At a time when we normally come physically together, we must stay apart. It runs counter to every human instinct and every intuition that we possess, but we must persevere.Because, if we follow the rules and slow the spread of the virus, then each new day will bring us closer to normal life. And we can enjoy Easters to come, safe in the knowledge that, when it mattered, we did our bit and rose to the challenge. And we put our loved ones, we put our NHS staff and we put our local communities first.So please, this Easter, stay home, protect the NHS and save lives.last_img read more

Trey Anastasio Joins Tedeschi Trucks Band For 2017 Beacon Theatre Closer [Videos]

Billed as another Evening With, fans were treated to two full sets of rock-and-roll originals, covers, and sit-ins from the one-and-only Trey Anastasio. The Phish frontman helped the 12-piece ensemble close out their second set with a pair of covers, “Delta Lady” by Leon Russell, in which he sang lead vocals on, and a 33+ minute “Mountain Jam” for the books.Marking the first time Trucks and Anastasio have collaborated since with the Allman Brothers Band at the 2014 Wanee, the moment was especially savored in the setting of the Beacon Theatre–a venue the Allman Brothers Band had played over 200 times. With the recent passings of Gregg Allman and Butch Trucks, the ABB song was an especially poignant choice. It was also the debut version from Tedeschi Trucks Band, which soared between various versions of the composition–including early Donovan’s “There Is A Mountain” and inspiration from the Grateful Dead and Herbie Mann renditions, as JamBase notes–with an extended “Will The Circle Be Unbroken?” mid-section. Certainly an interesting take on the beloved instrumental, bassist Tim Lefebvre and drummers J.J. Johnson and Tyler Greenwell were each given plentiful space for their individual remarks, morphing the performance into a space-shifting presentation of a song with many legs. While Anastasio has been known to hold back in this shared stage space before, he visibly pushed through to match guitar hero Derek Trucks in what became a patiently-timed, glorious dual between the two. Still, it was obvious who the leader on stage was–understandably, and respectfully–as Trey used the experience to appreciatively soak in the glory of the Tedeschi Trucks Band.Ahead of Trey’s sit-in, the husband-and-wife duo led their machine through an energetic evening of music that, unlike Friday night’s setlist, relied heavily on their original tunes. Timeless favorites “Midnight In Harlem” and “Do I Look Worried” settled hearts amongst raging numbers “Don’t Know What It Means” and “The Storm.” The band has a unique ability to reinvent old tunes in their own way, so covers of Derek and the Dominos, Toots & The Maytals, Johnny Moore’s Three Blazers, George Harrison, The Box Tops, Billy Taylor, and Leon Russell feel as if they could appropriately exist on proper Tedeschi Trucks Band records. Their influences are transcendental to the songwriting of the band, and shine through in their live interpretations night after night. As if its an education for their widespread audience, Derek and Susan continue to deliver the gospel of southern rock, the delta blues, and straight-up soul to their fanbase across the world.Following the unexpected sit-in, Susan Tedeschi returned to the stage with Kofi Burbridge for a heartfelt version of “A Song For You” by Leon Russell. Fans were appreciative of the fact, considering the keyboardist’s recent health scare that took him off the road for the last three months. The band joined the duo to close the final night with their original “Bound For Glory.” Tedeschi Trucks Band has a few weeks off before they return to the road on November 3 with Hard Working Americans. Full tour schedule here.You can watch complete videos of “Delta Lady” and “Mountain Jam” below, courtesy of Marc Millman:last_img read more

New eminent scholar

first_imgEach peanut is a complex mix of its genetic parts. Scott Jackson wants to figure out how the tasty legume’s genes work and help produce a higher yielding, more disease-resistant one. And he’s coming to Georgia to do it.In August, Jackson will join the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences as its newest Georgia Research Alliance Eminent Scholar. He is currently a professor of agronomy at Purdue University.“We have a world-class plant breeding and genetics program, perhaps the best in the world,” said J. Scott Angle, dean and director of the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. “We identified a need in this program and found the top person in this area. We then aggressively pursued Dr. Jackson to move his program to Georgia. I am pleased we were successful, and I know that the economy of Georgia will benefit from his move to our great state.”Jackson’s research focuses heavily on crop genomics. “We’re trying to understand the genome and the genome structure so that we can more efficiently manipulate the genetics of crops to produce better varieties,” he said. “We go where the questions are, and the tools are needed.”He will work in UGA’s Institute of Plant Breeding, Genetics and Genomics and the Crop and Soil Science Department.“We’re really excited to have someone of his caliber working with other research scientists at UGA,” said Terry Hollifield, acting director at the Georgia Seed Development Commission. The commission partially funded the endowment for the eminent scholar position.Jackson’s main reason for coming to UGA “mostly was the faculty there,” he said. “It’s a strong group, an active and growing group… It’s also an opportunity to expand in some areas where I haven’t been working before. In Indiana, peanut isn’t a crop at all. It’s a chance to collaborate with people more closely than I have before.”“We’re hoping his work will help with developing higher yielding, more pest-resistant peanut cultivars,” Hollifield said. “We’re interested in all commodities from horticulture to agronomic crops, but peanuts by far generate the largest amount of royalty dollars for the seed development program.”One of Jackson’s major accomplishments was leading the mapping of the soybean genome.“He will now join the effort in peanut genomics at UGA to identify markers for genes that will enhance the nutritional value and hopefully remove the potential for allergic reactions to peanuts,” said Bob Shulstad, associate dean for research at the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. “Georgia’s leadership in peanut production and expanding production of soybeans, alfalfa and other legumes will be greatly enhanced.”Jackson received his master’s and doctoral degrees in plant breeding and plant genetics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1996 and 1999, respectively.Besides working as a professor of agronomy and serving as the Wickersham Chair of Excellence in Agricultural Research, he is also currently a program officer in the Division of Biological Infrastructure for the National Science Foundation. He is an honorary scientist under the Rural Development Administration for the Republic of Korea and previously served as a consultant for the International Rice Research Institute in the Philippines.He is a fellow and member of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and a member of the American Society of Plant Biologists and Genetics Society of America. He has written 73 peer-reviewed journal articles – including the sequencing of the soybean genome and work on rice domestication – 11 book chapters and six non-refereed research publications.Five graduate students, a postdoctoral researcher and a computer programmer will also move with Jackson to UGA.last_img read more

Sanders announces $150,000 financial literacy grant

first_imgSource: Senator Sanders office. BURLINGTON, July 1 Sen. Bernie Sanders called today for a new Financial Product Safety Commission to protect consumers from abusive lenders and also announced a $130,000 federal grant to improve financial literacy for young people in Vermont.Sanders (I-Vt.) was joined at the press conference by Joseph G. Bergeron, president of the Association of Vermont Credit Unions, which will work with local business leaders, educators and volunteers, to teach middle and high school students the importance of financial literacy.“If there is anything that the current financial crisis has taught us it is that we have a responsibility to provide young Vermonters with the tools and the education they need to make sound financial decisions later in life,” Sanders said.  “It is critical that we teach kids how to balance a checkbook, save money, qualify for a mortgage, and understand that if they take out a loan there is no such thing as free and easy money.”  The Obama administration, meanwhile, yesterday sent a detailed proposal to Congress that would establish a Consumer Financial Protection Agency to guard against lending practices like those that contributed to the financial crisis, The Washington Post reported. Sanders is a cosponsor of legislation by Sen. Dick Durbin, the Senate’s No. 2 leader, to create the new consumer commission.“The federal government has a responsibility to protect consumers from unscrupulous, predatory, and deceitful lenders,” Sanders said. “While financial education is important, you should not need a law degree or a Ph.D. to understand the terms of a mortgage or a credit card.”Other proposals by Sanders to reform the financial services industry include a serious investigation into the financial crisis to determine what happened and what we can do to make sure that it never happens again.  He also wants a national usury law to cap credit card interest rates and fees, and he has proposed breaking up big banks like Citigroup, Bank of America, and JP Morgan Chase, and insurance companies like AIG, so taxpayers don’t have to bail them out if they fail again. “If an institution is too big to fail, it is too big to exist,” Sanders said.Another bill by Sanders would make federal regulators use emergency powers to stop speculators on Wall Street from manipulating the price of gasoline, heating oil, and other commodities.  Mounting evidence shows a recent run-up in oil and gas prices has little to do with supply and demand and everything to do with excessive speculation by some of the same Wall Street firms that received the largest taxpayer bail-out in the history of the world. “Reforming Wall Street will not be easy,” Sanders said. “Over the past decade, the banking and insurance industries spent over $5 billion on campaign contributions and lobbying activities. They are spending even more today to prevent Congress from seriously reforming their industries.  It is time that Congress stood up to these big financial interests and for the average American.” last_img read more

CPPD Instructor Selected for Military World Games

first_img An instructor at the Center for Personal and Professional Development (CPPD) Learning Site Pensacola will represent the Navy on the All Armed Forces Indoor Volleyball Team at the 5th CISM (International Military Sport Council) Military World Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from 16-24 July. Lt. Ashley Musser, the captain for the 2011 All Navy Volleyball team, competed in the Armed Forces Volleyball Tournament 6-12 April, aboard Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, N.C. The Navy team did not win the competition but did take second place. Musser was the only member of the Navy team selected as a tournament all star. Her performance during that tournament earned her, along with two other All Navy team members, a spot on the All Armed Forces Indoor Volleyball Team scheduled to compete in the 5th CISM Military World Games. Scheduled to be the largest military sports event ever held in Brazil, the games will pit approximately 4,900 athletes from more than 100 countries competing in 24 sports. The Military World Games is a multi-sport event held every four years, one year before the Olympic Games. After years of CISM organizing 15 to 20 championship games each year, the first Military World Games event was held in 1995 to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the end of World War II. The 2011 All Armed Forces Indoor Volleyball Team includes five Army, two Navy, one Coast Guard (who played for the Navy’s team during the tournament), one Marine Corps and three Air Force women. “Being able to work as a team and draw off of everyone’s experience and unique abilities helped us take the silver medal against some very talented competition this year.” As far as playing alongside former competition, she said there’s not usually a problem with it. Musser previously competed on the All Navy Team in 2006 and 2007, and also on the Armed Forces team for the 4th CISM Military World Games in Hyderabad, India. Before her 2006 commissioning from the U.S. Naval Academy, Musser received the 2006 Vice Adm. Lawrence Sword for Women award (awarded every year to the Brigade of Midshipman’s “most athletic female”), First Team All Patriot League honors, and was selected as the Offensive Player of the Year and team MVP during her senior year. She was also nationally ranked in the top 10 in the NCAA Division I for service aces per game in two seasons and set an Academy record for service aces in a career. Good morning, would you please advise how I could be a part of this select group of volleyball players for the military forces. I work in the police and I play volleyball.

Zlatni rat beach got its own website

first_imgPlaža Zlatni Rat je simbol i zaštitni znak Hrvatske, a ponajviše otoka Brača tj. Bola. A sada je ovaj simbol dobio i svoju vlastitu, dvojezičnu web stranicu kao prva plaža u Hrvatskoj, a možda i u Europi sa svojom web stranicom – www.zlatniratbol.com Most visitors come from Germany, followed by Slovenes, Czechs, Croats and Austrians. “Given the situation, we can be satisfied with the visit. Ne bude li većih poteškoća vezanih uz korona virus nadamo se koncem srpnja postići oko 70% prošlogodišnjeg posjeta, a od 24.7, uz već jednu postojeću, očekujemo i uvođenje druge katamaranske linije direktno za Bol. Važno je istaknuti da se pridržavamo svih epidemioloških mjera kako bi se naši gosti osjećali sigurno i ugodno” said the director of the Tourist Board of Bol, Mr. Markito Marinkovic. The special story of Zlatni rat is its natural phenomenon where the beach itself changes its shape and position depending on the wind that blows, waves and sea currents, which form the very top of the beach, which is constantly changing. Interestingly, measurements have shown that the Golden War is getting longer every year.  The aim of the website is to inform guests about the offer on the beach, provide various service information, beach etiquette, as well as real-time weather forecasts, but also the related offer of the destination Bol. center_img Tourist workers in Bol currently achieve about 50% of last year’s tourist traffic, and they hope to be at about 70% of last year’s visit by the end of July. Do Brača trenutno prometuje dvanaest dnevnih trajektnih linija Split – Supetar i jedna katamaranska linija Split – Bol, a dva puta tjedno (utorkom i subotom) Zagreb je povezan s Bračem avionskom linijom. Početkom kolovoza planira se uvođenje i avionske linije iz  Frankfurta do Brača, koja bi bila aktivna do 23.10.
