first_imgWhen I talk with people who are looking for work I get the sense that it is not just the change of employment status that is causing their anger and confusion. It is the sense that the entire way the employment contract works has been radically shifted on them. Many of our fathers and mothers worked for the same company for a long time, retiring after committing themselves to a lifetime of loyal and faithful service. That has somehow flipped into hoping we can get a contract job with a 30-day separation clause.Over the past 20 years we have grown our economy by buying stuff we don’t need with money we don’t have from companies we don’t like. We bought cheap clothes at warehouse stores while bemoaning the loss of textile jobs in the south and Wal-Mart’s labor practices. We grabbed the latest deal on electronics at the local Best Buy while feeling robbed of solid high-tech jobs that were being shipped overseas. And many of us (me included) have participated in cost-cutting exercises at work only to feel a nervous shiver through our spine when we think about our children’s future.As consumers we have demanded that things be cheaper, faster, better and more accessible. But as employees we are experiencing first-hand the consequences of those demands. It is what might be called a “total bummer”: Can’t I buy what is cheap, available and makes me feel good and forget all the other stuff?Yes, we can do that. And then we can watch our jobs go overseas. When that happens the key question we have to ask ourselves is “What jobs will stay here?” Fortunately there is plenty of opportunity for hope. We are still the most creative and innovative country on earth. The world still looks to us to define cultural and technical trends. Our iPods may be made in China, but they are designed in the U.S.But being a part of the team that designs the next iPod, or comes up with a new internet solution, or thinks of a better way to create clean energy requires something different of us as job seekers and talent – We have to be willing to change the way we think about work.Finding work with meaning, doing what you love, bringing fun to work and being comfortable, or even taking advantage of ambiguity and unexpected change are all critical parts of being successful in this century. They are not HR flights of fancy. In fact, I feel confident in guaranteeing that if you can’t answer what your dream job is, if you don’t know what gets you up in the morning, and if you don’t know what makes your work fun and enjoyable that your career is at risk.last_img read more

first_imgMahela Jayawardene has been appointed the head coach of Mumbai Indians from the next season of the Indian Premier League. The franchise announced on Friday that he will replace Ricky Ponting, who had been with the Mumbai franchise for the past four seasons. Ponting had spent four long years with the team in various roles – as a player, an advisory role under John Wright and then he took over as the full time head coach from Wright.Ponting was appointed as the captain of the Mumbai Indians in 2013 and the former Aussie skipper played a key role in Mumbai’s first triumph. He selflessly dropped himself from the squad as he failed to perform, paving the way for Rohit Sharma to lead the side to their maiden IPL title. He also guided Mumbai to their second title in 2015 as the head coach, he oversaw a dramatic turnaround after Mumbai lost the first five matches of the season.As Jayawardene takes over from Ponting, he will hope to replicate the success as well. The 39-year-old Sri Lankan batsman brings a lot of experience with him on the table. The former Sri Lanka captain recently served as the batting consultant for England ahead of their Test series against Pakistan in the UAE.Jayawardene played for Kings XI Punjab, Kochi Tuskers Kerala and Delhi Daredevils in the IPL.Paltan, our new Head coach, @MahelaJay has a special message for you.

first_imgIn nonprofit marketing, we have a habit of launching campaigns or communicating before we do some basic thinking about the point of the whole thing. Never plan anything without a tangible end result in mind. And think through every angle of that call to action.1. Know why you’re doing it: Have a goal. Raising awareness is not a goal. Decide what you are actually hoping people will DO as a result of your efforts.2. Identify everyone you need to take action. That’s to whom you are marketing — not the general public.3. Test the actions you’re requesting. Are they clear, simple and feasible? 4. Remove any barriers to taking action. Make taking action easy.last_img read more

first_imgToday a broad coalition of leading organizations, cultural influencers, community members and activists unveiled “Wear Orange” (www.wearorange.org), a new campaign that will amplify existing efforts to reduce gun violence in America.To help honor the 88 Americans whose lives are cut short by gun violence every day — and the countless survivors whose lives are forever altered by shootings each year — the coalition has designated June 2, 2015 as the first annual National Gun Violence Awareness Day. On this day, campaign partners invite everyone who agrees we can do more to save American lives from gun violence to do one simple thing: Wear Orange.The idea was inspired by a group of Chicago teens who asked their classmates to commemorate the life of a slain friend by wearing orange. They chose the color because hunters wear orange to announce themselves to other hunters when out in the woods. Their friend — Hadiya Pendleton, a 15 year old high school student — marched in President Obama’s 2nd inaugural parade and was tragically shot and killed back in Chicago just a week later. This June 2nd would have been Hadiya’s 18th birthday; First Lady Michelle Obama will deliver the commencement address at what would have been Hadiya’s graduation ceremony on June 9th.The coalition includes a wide cross section of gun violence, domestic violence, mental health, suicide prevention and faith-based organizations doing work proven to save lives. Early partners, in alphabetical order, include Amnesty International USA, Everytown for Gun Safety, Generation Progress, Hadiya’s Promise, Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence, The JED Foundation, Know Your IX, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, Project Orange Tree and The Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism (RAC) and NFTY – The Reform Jewish Youth Movement.“Our daughter Hadiya was a beautiful girl who was full of laughter and had her whole life ahead of her,” reflected her mother, Cleopatra Pendleton. “Too many Americans are dying every day from senseless acts of gun violence and it has to stop. We don’t want other parents to endure the pain and suffering our family has these past few years. We are honored to know that so many Americans will join us and Wear Orange on June 2nd to celebrate Hadiya’s life and the lives of all those taken by gun violence.”Gun violence prevention champions Julianne Moore, Sarah Silverman and Michael Stipe have joined in early and will call on fans to Wear Orange on June 2nd. Anyone can join in the campaign by visiting wearorange.org and using the site’s pledge tool to change their social media profile picture or share why they’ll be #WearingOrange on the first National Gun Violence Awareness Day.Originating in hunting culture, orange acknowledges that America has a proud heritage of responsible gun ownership. But orange also reflects the value of human life. When hunting in the woods, it’s expected you’ll take aim at a deer or bird – but you’re also obligated to take care with your life and the lives of fellow hunters.By wearing orange on June 2nd, Americans will pledge to: • Honor the lives – and lost human potential – of Americans stolen by gun violence • Do all we can to keep firearms out of the wrong hands • Be responsible gun owners and keep our children safeAdditional coalition partners, ambassadors, events and campaign developments will be announced in the weeks ahead.last_img read more

Rabat- Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan strongly denounced the Gaza massacre where the death toll of Palestinians by Israeli gunfire rose to 50 in one day, Monday, May 14.During a meeting with scholarship students of international news agency TRT World and Andalu News Agency in London, Erdogan condemned the mass murder, calling Israel a “terrorist state” and insisting that it has committed genocide: “What Israel has done is a genocide…I condemn this humanitarian drama, the genocide, from whichever side it comes, Israel or America,” according to the Independent.Erdogan added that this was not the first time that Israel has committed genocide, claiming it has done so since the creation of its state in 1948. Afterwards, Erdogan demonstrated his full support for Palestinians, saying that Turkey “will continue to stand with Palestinian people with determination.” Erdogan pledged to deliver humanitarian aid and medical equipment to Gaza hospitals and to hold three days of mourning in Turkey for the slain Palestinians, beginning Tuesday.In response, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took to his official Twitter account on Tuesday, writing:“Erdogan is among Hamas’s biggest supporters and there is no doubt that he well understands terrorism and slaughter. I suggest that he not preach morality to us[.]”Erdogan is among Hamas’s biggest supporters and there is no doubt that he well understands terrorism and slaughter.

The World Health Organization’s (WHO) Executive Board has accepted the agency’s Global Strategy on Diet, Physical Activity and Health to be considered for adoption by the 2004 World Health Assembly, which meets in May. The Strategy, which explains the global burden of NCDs and how healthier diet, nutrition and physical activity choices can help to prevent and control them, specifies roles for WHO, member States, UN agencies, the private sector and civil society in helping to reduce the occurrence of NCDs. WHO member States requested the strategy at their 2002 meeting to address two of the major risk factors responsible for NCDs, which also include cardiovascular disease and Type-2 diabetes. Such illnesses now account for some 60 per cent of global deaths and almost half of the global burden of disease. The strategy document was developed through a wide-ranging series of consultations, including formal meetings attended by representatives of more than 80 countries, other UN agencies, civil society and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and the private sector. The Executive Board, which is meeting in Geneva this week, agreed to allow member States until 29 February to make further comments on the draft document. The WHO secretariat will then prepare a final draft for the full membership to consider at the Assembly, which sets the agency’s policy direction. Board members today agreed on the wording of the draft resolution that will accompany the strategy document, following requests by some delegates for amendments. “The strategy requested by our member States gives them a strong instrument to do something about this growing public health problem,” said Dr. Catherine Le Galès-Camus, WHO Assistant-Director General for Noncommunicable Diseases and Mental Health. While warning that “changing diet and physical activity patterns will not be easy,” she said the strategy “could lead to one of the largest positive shifts in population health ever undertaken and should put populations on pathways to lifelong and sustained improvements in their health.” read more

THE CANADIAN PRESS/Darren Calabrese Study suggests people spent more money during Pan Am Games by Paola Loriggio, The Canadian Press Posted Jul 30, 2015 6:47 pm MDT Last Updated Jul 31, 2015 at 7:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – A new study suggests people — particularly tourists — spent more money in downtown Toronto and near Pan Am venues during the Games compared with the same period last year.The study by the payment processing company Moneris is based on debit and credit card transactions between July 10 and 26.While the study doesn’t include cash purchases, the company says it gives a general sense of spending during the international competition.It says people spent nearly eight per cent more in downtown Toronto. Spending on international cards, however, rose by close to 19 per cent.Entertainment was a big draw, with people spending just over 53 per cent more — and international visitors spending about 260 per cent more.Hotel expenses increased by about eight per cent overall, and about 20 per cent for foreign visitors.Spending jumped around the Rogers Centre the days of the opening and closing ceremonies — roughly 12 and 19 per cent, respectively, over the same day last year.There was a nearly seven per cent boost near the Ajax ballpark on days with baseball competitions, and an increase of about 14 per cent near the velodrome in Milton on days with track cycling events.Hamilton, which hosted Pan Am soccer, saw consumer spending rise about 10 per cent.Moneris spokesman Rob Cameron said it’s clear the jump is related to the Games.“We didn’t see that big of an increase at other points of the year and for entertainment, as a category, to be up 50 per cent is clearly driven by something going on, and that something was the Pan Am Games,” Cameron said.“What really struck me was that clearly, based on the foreign card spend being so much higher year over year … (was that) there was a lot of tourists in Toronto.” read more

Pakistan’s decision to call off their tour of Bangladesh in July and August has taken the BCB by surprise, though the board said it was yet to receive official communication from the PCB.Bangladesh have not toured Pakistan last in 2007-08“We are really surprised. Even a month ago we knew that the tour was on,” BCB’s media committee chairman Jalal Yunus said. “There was a discussion between both board chiefs during this week’s ICC meeting in Dubai. This upcoming series was ours to host according to the FTP. In 2015 the two boards went into a deal that we will play two series for the following two years in Bangladesh.“There was even a financial issue, which was dealt with at the time. They said they wanted to play here [in Bangladesh] till 2017. They wanted Bangladesh to play two T20s in Pakistan before continuing the series here. We don’t want to play there. We want to stick to our schedule, which has the whole series being played in Bangladesh.”Yunus said the BCB had learned of the PCB’s decision through the media. “If the series does get officially cancelled, we have to go into discussion with them. We have cleared the financial issues so there’s no need to talk about those things now. We haven’t heard anything from them in official correspondence. We heard it through the media that they want to cancel the tour.”Bangladesh last toured Pakistan in 2007-08, for a five-ODI series. Since then, Pakistan have toured Bangladesh twice, in 2011-12 and 2015. They PCB said it was cancelling this year’s tour because Bangladesh had not reciprocated with a return visit.If the tour is off, Bangladesh will have a break in July this year, because their next fixtures after the Champions Trophy in June is a proposed home series against Australia in late August.

first_imgSandvik Mining and Rock Technology says it has expanded its high-pressure DTH drill rig offering with a new model, the Leopard DI650i, designed for larger hole sizes. Balancing proven engineering solutions and innovative new components, the new DTH rig offers excellent fuel efficiency, improved safety and higher productivity in challenging rock conditions.The Leopard DI650i down-the-hole (DTH) drill rig is designed for demanding high-capacity production drilling applications in surface mining, as well as large-scale quarry applications. In addition to a powerful engine and compressor, the Leopard DI1650i incorporates a highly ergonomic iCAB cabin, excellent serviceability, mobility and fuel economy, along with scalable automation packages to offer excellent overall productivity.In addition to the solid, long-term track record of engine and compressor design, the Leopard DI650i comes with a range of new or re-designed components to boost its productivity. The standard rotary head option, HTRH6, has performed successfully on existing Sandvik DTH rigs, whereas the new heavy-duty option, MRH6, is a good fit with Sandvik’s powerful new RH560-series DTH hammers and well-matched to the demands of the upper range of the capacity area.Pipe sizes range from 89 to 140 mm, depending on the size of the hammer. The maximum hole depth is 53.6 m when utilising the carousel option with pipe sizes from 89 to 114 mm. The capacity range of 403 kW Tier 3 CAT C15 diesel engine and reliable compressor is adequate for high-pressure drilling with 4-6.5 in DTH hammer sizes.“Thanks to excellent visibility of drilling area and a single integrated touch screen for all monitoring, diagnostics and mining automation displays, Leopard DI650i’s silent, ergonomic iCAB cabin provides the rig operator with a safer, productive working environment for the rig operator. The maintenance crew can carry out all daily servicing tasks at ground level on both sides of the machine. The advanced serviceability and reliability features can increase Leopard DI650i’s availability by up to 20% compared with conventional DTH rigs at a similar technology level.”Sandvik states that intelligent control technology applied in both the compressor and the hydraulic system’s cooler fan can reduce fuel consumption by up to 15% compared with conventional DTH rigs. The Leopard DI650i’s fuel efficiency is further boosted by the flow-controlled drilling control system that eliminates fluctuations in airflow, instead allowing the pressure level to fluctuate in response to more difficult ground conditions and increased back pressure (for example, due to groundwater or collapsing holes). This makes maximum flushing pressure and penetration rates available in the most challenging of rock conditions, while still retaining the low fuel consumption of the traditional pressure control approach in easy ground conditions.The Leopard DI650i joins Sandvik’s other i-series drilling rigs in its compatibility with the newest scalable automation solutions. “The latest onboard options include TIM3D drill navigation with wireless data transfer, My Sandvik fleet monitoring system and full-cycle drilling automatics, which merge functionalities such uncoupling, feed auto-aligning and feed auto positioning into a single efficient sequence. These capabilities can be further upgraded with more advanced modules such as single-rig or fleet remote control systems by Automine® Surface Drilling.”last_img read more

first_imgLONGVIEW— Weyerhaeuser Co. has sold its NORPAC paper mill to One Rock Capital Partners, LLC, ending Weyerhaeuser’s nearly 90-year papermaking presence in Longview.Weyerhaeuser said that it will use a substantial portion of the after-tax proceeds from the sale to pay off debt. The sale includes the printing papers mill located in Longview, which Weyerhaeuser has operated through a joint venture with Nippon Paper Industries Co., Ltd. Nippon’s 50 percent stake in the newsprint mill is included the sale.While the price of the NORPAC sale wasn’t immediately available, Nippon reported that it sold its half of the company for $40 million.“Customers of NORPAC have a high opinion of the quality of the products, in which state-of-the art technologies of both companies were incorporated, and NORPAC had performed well in terms of sales over the long term in the Japanese and U.S. markets,” Nippon said in a press release.“However, NORPAC has faced a tough business environment, due to a decrease in demand for newsprint and stiff competition in the U.S. market. NORPAC has taken measures, including the cultivation of Asian markets, expansion in the sale of printing papers in the U.S. market, and the development of new products, in addition to thorough cost reductions,” the Japanese company added.NORPAC produces newsprint and book paper. The newsprint market has been shrinking for decades as newspapers have closed and downsized. The Longview operation opened in the late 1970s as a non-union mill and was the last of the local paper facilities sold under Weyerhaeuser’s goal to get out of the papermaking business.last_img read more

It’s a mountain to climb but not impossible, we need to try and get to half-time with a 1-0 lead. We’re ready for the next game, that’s the thing for us, we’re Man United and we always bounce back.”The sensational Mbappe produced another eye-catching display on the night with the 20-year-old’s searing pace providing to be a handful for the United defence all night before he scored PSG’s second goal of the game.“The ground he made up to get in the box, for all the strikers and coaches out there, that’s how you get in the box,” Solskjaer said on Mbappe.“Don’t give him that space to go into, but he’s lightning quick of course.

first_img SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – After more than two decades of service, Judge Joan M. Lewis is retiring from the San Diego Superior Court bench, it was announced Thursday.Appointed by then-Gov. Pete Wilson in 1998, Lewis began her judicial career presiding in family court, and in 2003 until her retirement, presided over Superior Court Civil Independent Calendar cases.In September 2017, Lewis received the Witkin Award for excellence in the practice of law and advancing access to justice.Presiding Judge Peter Deddeh said that throughout her career, Judge Lewis handled a variety of challenging assignments.“During her 15 years in a Civil Independent Calendar Department, Judge Lewis established herself as one of the division’s most capable jurists,” Deddeh said. “Her colleagues on the bench also recognized Judge Lewis’ outstanding leadership skills, electing her to the Executive Committee several times during her 20-year career. Judge Lewis’ ability to lead was also prominently displayed in her role as the Assistant Supervising Judge for the entire Civil Division of the San Diego Superior Court.”A native of New York, Judge Lewis earned degrees from State University of New  York at Upstate Medical Center; Arizona State University, and eventually earning her law degree from California Western School of Law.“It is an understatement to say that it has been an honor and a privilege to serve on the bench in San Diego on behalf of the State of California,” Lewis said. “My judicial colleagues have always been an inspiration to me, and are amongst the finest in the state.

Items were scattered around the floor as Smith and his two sons worked to wipe soot from framed artwork and photos that once hung in those spots. The three spent the day sifting through items to find out what they could and couldn’t keep. Many of their belongings needed to be thrown away, but the irreplaceable artwork can be salvaged.“My kids are my life.
