The British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) said a raft of new employment regulation and the new Equality Act, which becomes law today, would hamper job creation and cost businesses £189.2m. Meanwhile the national minimum wage will today rise by 13p to £5.93 an hour, while apprentices will be entitled to a wage of at least £2.50 an hour.And employment legislation due to be passed between now and 2014 will cost firms a staggering £11.3bn, despite the government promising a bonfire of red tape during the election campaign. David Frost, director-general of the BCC, said: “If private sector businesses are to offset job losses in the public sector, the significant costs of employing people must be reduced. As austerity measures start to bite, companies need the flexibility and freedom to boost employment and drive our economic recovery.“While we have heard some good announcements from the Coalition about reviewing and scrutinising upcoming red tape, businesses are yet to see the benefits.”The Institute of Directors (IoD) also hit out at the government’s decision to extend the right to request flexible working to parents of children under 18 from next year. “This is particularly unwise when we know that creating another formal employment right would add to the already excessive amount of administration businesses have to conduct to comply with regulations,” a spokesperson for the IoD said. Meanwhile, the IoD voiced its opposition to the coalition’s £2bn levy on the banking sector, warning it would pave the way for future governments to increase it while encouraging banks to relocate overseas. “There is clearly public concern about how some of the banks have behaved which needs to be addressed, but this should be done in a way that doesn’t encourage the banks to move their headquarters out of the UK,” said Miles Templeman, director-general of the IoD.He added: “There is a risk that the bank levy, as currently designed, will drive banking business away.” KCS-content More From Our Partners Mark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.com‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comSidney Crosby, Alex Ovechkin are graying and frayingnypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.com‘The Love Boat’ captain Gavin MacLeod dies at 90nypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.com whatsapplast_img read more

Fiji beat South Africa to win the 2009 Hong Kong Sevens

first_imgMonday Mar 30, 2009 Fiji beat South Africa to win the 2009 Hong Kong Sevens Fiji won a dramatic final 26-24 against South Africa to claim their first Hong Kong Sevens title in ten years on Sunday. The game went right down to the final kick in one of the more exciting finals weve seen.It was Fiji who dominated the first half with all the flair and power were used to seeing from them, but South Africa came back strong, fighting till the death.It was a slightly new look Fijian squad at this years tournament, as many of the overseas players were axed following a poor showing at the Sevens World Cup in Dubai. But the selections paid dividends as they proved their naysayers wrong.“Back home we were written off by our fans but it worked in our favour,” Fijis coach Iliesa Tanivula said.“There were no expectations. It gave us motivation to do better. Fijians around the world didn’t give us a chance but all credit to the boys, I take my hat off to them.”South Africa scored after the hooter, setting up a conversion kick for captain Mzwandile Stick that would have tied the game and taken it into sudden death extra time.The kick went wide though, and it was not to be for the South Africans this time, as Fiji celebrated a fantastic win.They now move up to third on the Sevens World Series standings, behind South Africa and England.

Whilst dreaming of a singularity of vision, Tierra’s design for a private residence and landscape in Phuket embodies a multiplicity of seeming contradictions and nuances; site, brief, experiences and cultural typologies. Save this picture!© Chonnasit SundaranuRecommended ProductsDoorsSaliceSliding Door System – Slider S20DoorsVEKADoors – VEKAMOTION 82Fiber Cements / CementsRieder GroupFacade Panels – concrete skinDoorsSolarluxBi-Folding Doors – EcolineLocated on the west coast of Phuket, the site is set within the undulating terrain of the island, remote from the established areas of tourist endeavors and within a secluded private estate. Whilst commanding panoramic views of the Andaman Sea and surrounding hills, the site also belongs to a lush tropical landscape sensitively established by the owner of the development. Save this picture!© Chonnasit SundaranuThe design reflects a combination of containment and expanse and the threshold of the in-between. The four level ‘z’ shaped form of the building is sited in the middle of the site, creating distinct spatial experiences.The development estate’s granite cobbled terrace walls are extended to weave and form an arrival and podium for the residence. With the building elevated, a forecourt is created by the landscape, guest building and elevated living wing. Save this picture!© Chonnasit SundaranuThe entry reflection pond shadowed by the living span above, forms a threshold between the forecourt and the expanse of the ocean beyond. Limestone clad walls, with their expressive horizontal jointing pay homage to the beauty and clarity of the sea’s horizon. Interpreting the traditional typology of the Thai residences; with separate pavilions but having a unity as a whole, the living wing (connected by a glass enclosed spiral staircase from the pond), is distinct from the complex. The linearity of the volume, the transparency of the glass enclosure, light stone interior and the kitchen islands reinforce this traditional attitude expressed with modern articulation. Save this picture!© Chonnasit SundaranuThe adjacent two level guest wing separated by terrace, is experientially connected to the forecourt landscape and surrounding mountains. Views of the sea are intentionally limited by framing from within its’ teak clad and screen enclosure. Its’ separateness is part of the client’s brief to provide a private house within a house. The interior volumes are generous and well appointed with finely detailed stone floors and walls and fittings. Save this picture!© Chonnasit SundaranuIn contrast, the master wing obscured from the entry approach, firmly occupies the territory of the panorama. Similarly defined as a separate volume, the master bedroom, study and amenities below are expressed as a teak clad upper level on a limestone feature podium. The stone clad wall veils a separate entry for client and visitors and is expressed with a darker palette of timber and stone. Amenities also include separate living, guest amenities and kitchen.A roof deck accessed by an open spiral metal and teak staircase is revelatory of the site’s position on the coastal headland. Save this picture!© Chonnasit SundaranuFollowing the terrain of the site, the pool and social spaces are stepped below, offering privacy from the entry but open to views of the sea. The pool traverses the site and while generous in scale, is distinctly secluded by its’ connection with the site’s rocky outcrops and landscape.From this vantage point, the scale of the house becomes readily apparent and its’ cascading landscaped pathways suggest a discovery of the coastal edge beyond.Save this picture!© Chonnasit SundaranuProject gallerySee allShow lessLatent City / Yaohua WangArticlesThe Indicator: And the Award Goes to…Articles Share “COPY” Projectslast_img read more

He said the show isn’t actually about love, and the show has proven it is better at producing failed relationships than successful ones.“Nothing you see on the ‘Bachelor’ is organic,” Carbone said. “Everything is controlled by producers and they know what’s going on at all times.”TCU alum Olivia Caridi received the “first impression rose” on last night’s season premiere of “The Bachelor.” (Photo: Rick Rowell/ABC Television Group)“These people are put in a bubble for a couple months where they think they’re falling in love with the other person, but what they’re really falling in love with is the idea that they’re falling in love,” Carbone said.To see spoilers for this season of “The Bachelor” or episode recaps, realitysteve.com has the whole season online and will be updating as more information is revealed. ‘Liters for Life’ student campaign raises funds for global water crisis last_img read more

Retiring vice chancellor started at the bottom

first_imgThree longtime social work faculty set to retire Previous articleBill Clinton rallies support for wife Hillary at Tarrant County CollegeNext articleCruz throws attacks at Trump in Dallas rally before Super Tuesday elections Clayton Youngman RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Baker did not have a human resources background when she took over the department in 2013. Clayton Youngmanhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/clayton-youngman/ New dean selected for honors college Clayton Youngman ReddIt Twitter Facebook The College of Science and Engineering Dean, Phil Hartman, retires after 40 consecutive years When she first applied to work at TCU, Baker wasn’t thinking about a career.“When I came to work here as a typist 20 plus years ago, I would have probably said to you, ‘I’m only going to work here four or five years,’” she said.“Never in a million years did I expect to be in this position.” printKaren Baker never thought she was was too good for a job.Typing tests, filing mail, taking students to soccer practice, coordinating events, assisting the chancellor – someone asks, she does.“I’ve never considered any task something that I shouldn’t have to do or wouldn’t do at all,” she said.That philosophy led to a storied career at TCU – one that has reached its final chapter. Baker, the university’s vice chancellor of human resources, will retire on Feb. 29.In more than 23 years, she did everything short of literally climbing a ladder.Her first positionFort Worth was the final stop.Baker was a stay-at-home mom for 16 years. Her husband, Larry, worked for a railroad company. He was transferred a lot: 12 times in 18 years.“When we came here, we had a child in high school and two children in middle school,” she said. “We had just reached the point of saying, ‘We’re done.’”She had just finished her bachelor’s degree in English literature as a nontraditional student at St. Cloud State University in Minnesota. After moving to Fort Worth in 1992, a friend convinced Baker to apply for a job at TCU.“The tuition benefit was very attractive,” she said.She interviewed for a position in human resources and ended up getting a job as a typist in the Neeley School of Business.It was an hourly position. Baker worked on the third floor of Dan Rogers Hall in the now defunct Support Services Center. She typed exams for professors, proofread professional journal articles filed mail, whatever faculty needed.“I don’t think I crossed University once,” Baker said. “You kind of stayed on your side of campus.”Baker started out in the Neeley School of Business in the 90s.Moving upAfter four years, Baker moved on to a new department and a promotion.As an administrative assistant position in residential services, now known as housing and residence life, she made flyers, helped with housing assignments and handled communications for the department.“Just assisting anyone with any work that they had,” she said.Soon she became the associate director of residential services. She was responsible for various duties in the department including housing assignments.Baker remembers the major housing crunch of the late 90s when TCU’s popularity soared as the university’s national reputation grew.“We had enough housing and then all of a sudden TCU became hotter and hotter,” she said. “That’s when we started doubling up, tripling up rooms and using lounges.”After moving from the Neeley School to Residential Services, Baker started working her way up the department.Space got so tight that students were temporarily housed in a hotel near Hulen Mall.“I would literally drive students back and forth,” she said. “I remember taking young students to soccer practice or getting them there for band practice.”While she was the associate director, Chancellor William Tucker decided to step down.After the announcement, he paid Baker a visit.“He was standing right out front of my office and I just remember thinking, ‘I’m happy to help you, what can I do for you?” Baker said.‘Overwhelmed’Tucker asked Baker to be on the search committee to find his replacement.“I never knew why he had zeroed in on me to ask me to serve on this particular committee.”That committee hired Michael Ferrari as chancellor. A few years later, Baker was elected chair of the Staff Assembly. She only served for a year, but it was long enough.When Ferrari announced his retirement in 2003, Baker was named to the search committee for his replacement.Members of the search committee were asked to be guides for the finalists  – “their chauffer, so to speak,” Baker said.Victor Boschini, then the president of Illinois State University, was among the finalists. Baker was his guide.“We got to know each other very well during that time, and I was delighted when he was selected,” Baker said.Boschini chose Baker to be an “assistant to the chancellor.”“When I interviewed with the chancellor, I told him I don’t have to be front and center,” Baker said. “I am more than happy to be someone in the background saying, ‘Let me help you get your job done.’”The assistant to the chancellor position evolved into the chief of staff.She did everything from write letters on Boschini’s behalf to manage the chancellor’s cabinet. The job also included secretary duties for the Board of Trustees.“I was just so overwhelmed with the sense of responsibility,” she said.In September 2013, Boschini decided to make the human resources department a standalone division of the university. He tagged Baker to become the department’s first vice chancellor.“When I came to this position, I did not have a human resources background,” Baker said. “The chancellor asked me to come because of my institutional history, as well as my relational history with others at the university.”Baker did not have a human resources background when she took over the department in 2013.A million yearsBaker said she had no problem with how much her job description changed.“It happened so gradually… changing was never a problem for me,” she said. “I could adapt.”Now, she’ll have to adapt to a lighter load.Baker plans to spend her free time with her mother, husband, three children (including two TCU graduates), and eight grandchildren. A ninth is on the way.“We just felt that it was time,” she said.Numerous co-workers have expressed their sadness in seeing Baker go.“Karen Baker is a prime example of the unbeatable spirit of TCU employees,” Boschini said. “Always willing to help others…. especially students.” Clayton Youngmanhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/clayton-youngman/ Linkedincenter_img TCU drops rubber match 3-1 to Texas Tech; Frogs lose 2nd straight Big 12 series + posts Clayton is a senior journalism major from Mesquite, Texas.

first_img GhanaAfrica April 2, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Government censors news about inter-clan violence in the north of the country The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa Covid-19 in Africa: RSF joins a coalition of civil society organizations to demand the release of imprisoned journalists on the continent Reports In a letter sent to the Minister of Information, Jake Obetsebi-Lamptey, Reporters sans frontières (Reporters Without Borders – RSF), called for the immediate suspension of the requirement that media submit their stories about inter-clan violence for approval by government censors. “To our knowledge, no media in Ghana have incited any murders,” said Robert Ménard, general secretary of RSF. “Nothing can justify the implementation of government censorship. It is important that the citizens of Ghana have access to more than just official information.” RSF also called for the repeal of the 1994 Emergency Powers Act, which goes against the country’s constitution.According to information obtained by RSF, on 31 March 2002, the government decided that all information concerning the inter-clan clashes among the Dagomba ethnic group (north of the country) must be submitted to the Ministry of Information for censorship. The minister justified this measure by invoking the 1994 Emergency Powers Act, which allows the government to “forbid all information coming from, or concerning, an area in a state of emergency.” He said that some media have been making “highly inflammatory” reports, some of which were “carefully planned”. On 25 March 2002, violence broke out between two Andani and Abudu clans of the Dagomba ethnic group. On 27 March, the king of the Dagomba, Yakubu Andani II, and some forty other people, were killed in Yendi (north of the country).

‘Sell region’ is message from travel boss

first_imgTwitter Fears loss of Shannon flights will hit tourist industryA LEADING travel agent has warned that the reduction in flights by Aer Lingus from Shannon airport to the United States, and the loss of one Ryanair Shannon-based planes from October, is gong to make the region less attractive for tourists.  Tony Brazil, of Limerick Travel, has told his fellow operators that it is now up to them to go out and make the effort to bring people in.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The number of tourists visiting Ireland from overseas has fallen by nine per cent this year compared to 2008 figures, and following the planned reduction in flights to and from Shannon, there are widespread fears that the industry will decline further.Aer Lingus plans to remove their transatlantic flights from Shannon to Chicago from its winter schedule in a bid to curb losses, while Ryanair will eliminate one aircraft from their winter timetable at Shannon, with chief executive Michael O’Leary, also threatening that the base there could close completely.Speaking about the downturn in the industry, the managing director of Limerick Travel said: “Unfortunately, we are living in a world where travel is decreasing and the reduction in flights at Shannon is going to make the region less attractive for tourists. The challenge for travel agencies now is to go out and make the effort to get people in.“We have seen a reduced turnover on last year and have noted a lack in confidence among those planning a holiday. It is a bigger decision for people now to spend the money in that way, and they are hesitating to make the choice.“Set against the state of the world economy, it is understandable why it is difficult for people to travel“However, there is great value to be had all over the world in travel at the moment”.The travel agency MD, stated that in light of the problems facing companies such as British Airways, the issues in the tourism industry here pale in significance.BA reported a 375 million stg loss for the 12 months to March 31 of this year, and recently asked their staff to work for free for a month.“The opening of customs and border protection in Shannon will be something of a stimulus to bring in the tourists,” continued Mr Brazil.“The third Aer Lingus flight to Heathrow due to debut at the end of this year, will be another positive for the area”. He concluded that it was refreshing to see companies such as Continental Airlines, who were named the World’s Most Admired Airline in Fortune magazine, doing well despite the odds and that it would give others hope of coming out the other side of the economic slump.
