Previous Article Next Article More than half of employees strongly regret accepting a new job immediatelyafter joining an organisation, a survey claims. The study also shows that 26 per cent of respondents voluntarily left theirjobs within one month because they were treated poorly by their new employers. Nick Hood, senior London partner of Begbies Traynor, which carried out theresearch in conjunction with online directory UK Net Guide, said the findingsshow how important it is for employers to spend time helping new starters tosettle in. “If staff leave during the first few weeks of joining, the organisationhas to meet more costs both in time and money recruiting replacements. “It is far simpler and more cost effective to ensure they are properlyintegrated in the first place,” he said. The survey also shows that 59 per cent of new starters had simply been leftto their own devices during their first day at work and nearly half had notbeen allocated a desk. www.begbies-traynor.co.uklast_img read more

Guilded Cage Broken

first_imgThe Oxford Guild, a student society which describes itself as “Oxford and the UK’s largest and oldest student careers society,” has suffered a number of resignations from senior committee members objecting to the “current framework and culture within the Oxford Guild.”Over half of the Oxford Guild’s senior committee co-signed a letter of resignation submitted at 12.01am this morning. Out of the present executive committee of nine, only the President, Chairman and two of the four Vice Presidents remain.In the letter of resignation shared with Cherwell, the co-signatories state, “We are against the continued counterproductive involvement of certain individuals that are no longer at the University and yet insist on being omnipotent within the Guild.“We would like to express our gratitude to those students that we have worked with, either alongside or under, and in particular, to the current President, who has done his utmost to try to keep us together as a cohesive society.“However, after countless efforts, we have come to the unfortunate conclusion that it is not possible to align the culture of the Oxford Guild with our idea of working within a society that is focused on adding value to students, run in a meritocratic and transparent manner, with a clear framework to underpin it.”In addition to the resignations from the executive committee, 11 further committee members, including the Guild Ball President, have also signed the letter announcing their resignation with immediate effect.The co-signatories also announce their launching of a new student organistion, saying, “We have decided to build the Oxford Student Foundation, which will exemplify our beliefs, values and ideas; and will focus on areas that the Oxford Guild does not effectively cover.”Speaking to Cherwell about the project, the co-signatories said, “The Oxford Student Foundation is a unique platform that offers a network of initiatives – providing students with hands-on experience and valuable opportunity. The Foundation and its revolutionary approach, allows students to discover the work that truly inspires them.OSF will link together a number of existing societies such as the Oxford Microfinance Initiative and the Oxford Strategy Group, and will found Initiatives in areas such as law, entrepreneurship, asset management and banking, that do not currently exist. The unique framework of OSF leaves scope for further expansion into other areas through the founding of new Initiatives. Further details will be revealed when we launch at the start of Trinity 2016.”The Oxford Student Foundation’s website was launched last night.The Oxford Guild in its current form was launched by Abbas Kazmi, and Adam Chekroud in 2012. Kazmi has left the University but remains Chairman of the Guild and remains involved in the day-to-day running of the society’s affairs.The Guild is a careers society that organises careers opportunities, including speaker and networking events, and is sponsored by organisations including Goldman Sachs, KPMG and JP Morgan.The Society has also hosted a number of high-profile speakers. A year ago on Wednesday, the Guild hosted Kanye West as a speaker and is expected to be hosting UK Grime MC Stormzy on Monday.The Vice-President for speakers, Shakeel Hashim, was one of the cosignatories to the letter of resignation.This wave of resignations follows the resignation last term of then-President Alexi Andriopoulous.The Guild has now published a response.last_img read more

first_imgMalaysian floating solar project brought online for levelized cost of $0.038/kilowatt-hour FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享PV Magazine:Malaysian solar project developer Solarvest Holdings Berhad has completed construction on a 13 MW floating solar power plant in Dengkil, Sepang District, in the Selangor state on the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia.The plant features 38,790 JAP72D09 335W solar modules from Chinese manufacturer JA Solar and three SG3400HV-MV-20 central inverters from China-based provider Sungrow. The floating structures were also supplied by the inverter maker.The project was developed under the country’s Large Scale Solar (LSS) scheme and will sell power to local utility Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) under a 21-year PPA. “The project’s levelized cost of energy is MYR 0.1608 ($0.038)/kWh, while total investment in the facility was MYR 47 million ($11.3 million),” Solarvest’s spokesperson explained.The Malaysian government has already held three procurement rounds under the LSS tender program. A fourth round was launched in May.A first round, in 2016, allocated 200 MW of capacity across the peninsula plus 50 MW in Sabah, northern Borneo, of the planned total of 370 MW. The second LSS tender, the following year, was nearer to its intended 520 MW target as it allocated 360 MW of peninsular solar and 100 MW across Sabah and the islands of Labuan. The third round tender attracted 112 bids for more than 6.73 GW of generation capacity and with the lowest solar energy price of MYR 0.17777/kWh.At the end of 2019, Malaysia had 882 MW of solar capacity, according to International Renewable Energy Agency figures.[Emiliano Bellini]More: Floating solar plant with LCOE of $0.038/kWh comes online in Malaysialast_img read more


Gear On The Go: April 2019

December 30, 2020

Tagged: , , , , , , , , , , ,


first_imgThe Alpha Alpine is an ultra-breathable, extra light, and yet still very warm jacket that can serve as a mid-layer in the colder months, or an outer layer once the weather gets warmer. It’s so light and packable (really, it’s only 9 ounces) that it has become our go-to jacket when packing for any outdoor activity. This is the ultimate layer for when you’re really pushing it and sweating or if you find yourself on a stop and start a mission where regulating your body temperature can be tricky. The Alpha Alpine is treated with a DWR so it can shed light rain. The best part about this jacket (for us) is that it’s legitimately very comfortable. When we can go hard on a hike, then colpse back at camp and feel relaxed the whole time, that’s always a gear win. It’s always a strange feeling, moving back into the van. We haven’t had a permanent residence other than our van for over two years, but we do take small breaks from time to time. We’ll stay with friends, family, or just take a break from our work and van and travel for a while. Every time we get back in for the “long haul” we feel like we’re starting a new chapter. Packing means a new set of adventures and experiences are on the horizon. It means meeting new people and it always means visiting new places. Packing the van also means appreciating gear that serves a purpose and takes up as little space as possible. We changed up a few things this year, but one thing we wanted to keep is our Gear on the Go blog. It helps us highlight some of the gear that helps us to run a successful eight month tour. As in years past, this will be a monthly feature so keep your eyes peeled and here we go! These chairs are sturdy. They can hold up to 300 pounds and they only weigh three pounds three ounces themselves. All of the poles that make up the frame are made from lightweight aircraft aluminum that feels as nice as is looks. The collapsible frame is shock-corded together, similar to how tent poles can be shock-corded together. This makes assembling the Big Six completely intuitive. It literally takes a matter of seconds from unpacking until you’re relaxing. The Big Six, even being the largest Big Agnes chair packs down to a reasonable 3.5″ x 21″ and has found a permanent home in our van. The Journey Women’s down sleeping bag is the second step to cozy backcountry sleeping. Besides the extremely satisfying color, I love the feel of this bag. Often, I don’t like to sleep skin to sleeping bag. It feels like a weird trash bag and I feel grimy just thinking about it. This down sleeping bag is made with 30D Nylon on the outside and feels so much nicer on direct skin contact. The down is ULTRA-DRY 650+ and certified Responsible Down Standard (RDS), which I am super happy about. You can zip this sleeping bag directly to any Sea to Summit Ascent™, Trek™ or Traverse™. Ben doesn’t like it as much as I do, but who could say no to a sleeping bag sleepover party? I’ll be the first to admit that I want my gear to be intuitive. Nothing gets on my nerves like when companies make their stuff sacks just slightly too small for the product to actually fit back inside. When Big Agnes sent over their new line of camp furniture we took it upon ourselves to try and assemble, disassemble, and repack everything without peeking at the instructions. No Problem! Sea To Summit: Woman’s Ether Light XT Insulated Air Sleeping Mat and the Sea To Summit: Journey Women’s Down Sleeping Bag The Big Six Camp Chair is the largest in the new line of Big Agnes camp furniture. It was designed for “deluxe chillin’” and they definitely hit the mark. First off, this is a full-sized camp chair, with a tall back and wide seat the Big Six sits a full 20 inches off the ground so standing back up after spending an extended time resting your legs by the fire is a breeze. Big Agnes has developed all of their chairs with a hubless frame design. This allows for smaller pack size and lighter weight. Stio: Men’s/Women’s Alpha Alpine Jacket Stio offers a hoodless pull over as well as a full zip jacket with a hood. The Alpha Alpine is also fully reversible with dual colorways so whether you are in the city or hanging from a mountainside you can look your best. The mat and bag are women specific. There is extra down in the foot area, so the cold foot nightmares never come true. There is wider areas between the hips and knees so you can sleep in more natural positions, and less wide areas by the shoulder so the warm air can’t escape. The mat follows the proportions of the sleeping bag to create a streamlined sleep system that will keep you warm for three seasons straight. Born in the Tetons, Stio knows a thing or two about making apparel that’s ready for the mountains. The Alpha Alpine jacket from Stio is a highly technical active insulation piece that can replace many other layers in your quiver. If you share these worries with me, then you also know that a perfect sleep system is an answer to your fears. The Ether Light XT Insulated Air Sleeping Mat has an R-Value of 3.8, which means it will keep you elevated four inches off the ground and warm from spring to fall. Even with possible frost, this mat will do its job. The stuff sack comes with Airstream Pump so you don’t have to bring anything extra with you, or huff and puff to get your sleep system set up once you’ve backpacked ten miles in. At only 15 ounces, you don’t have to worry about added weight to your pack. And, it’s quiet. Less crinkle when turning over in the night so you don’t wake yourself, your partner, or your pup up. Big Agnes: Big Six Camp Chair I, Roxy, have an ongoing fear of being cold while camping and backpacking. I imagine myself wide awake in the middle of the night, toes freezing, nose freezing, listening to Ben breath deeply next to me. Ben is a human heater and shares non of my fears. last_img read more


International Experts Approve Procedures to Combat Drug Trafficking

December 20, 2020

first_imgBy Dialogo July 28, 2009 Experts from fifteen countries met in the Chilean city of Viña del Mar within the framework of the OAS’s Inter-American Drug Abuse Control Commission, aiming at unifying procedures to combat drug trafficking at sea. The event, which took place as part of the program promoted by the Chilean Navy to monitor the fulfillment of international standards and agreements for protecting human life at sea, also served to standardize procedures and become acquainted with new modalities and routes used in the seaborne drug trade. The meeting of technical experts enabled the exchange of experiences related to “the creativity” developed by drug traffickers who bring drugs into the countries of the continent or use certain countries, like Chile, as transit routes. The international group of experts that participated in the event was headed by the Chilean Navy’s Director of Security for Maritime Operations, Rear Admiral Juan Pablo Heusser. Heusser indicated that “this meeting’s importance is principally based on standardizing procedures in Latin America and knowing the way in which drug trafficking takes place, as well as the up-to-date modality being implemented for that traffic.” He affirmed that one of the principal conclusions was the need to approve procedures in order to confront, for example, the new forms that traffickers have found for transporting drugs with the help of new technologies. “What’s new are some substances that are diluted in water or are inside liquor or wine bottles, but aren’t wine; some countries now have adopted the use of submersibles or specially fitted-out vehicles, something that we need to understand and learn about,” he explained. The president of the Inter-American Drug Abuse Control Commission, CICAD, part of the Organization of American States, María Teresa Chadwick, who attended the event, indicated that this subject is a worldwide preoccupation. “CICAD promotes the work of different groups of experts who work in different places in the hemisphere and address the production of and demand for drugs that give rise to drug trafficking,” as she briefly described the institution. She said that the idea is to share certain strategies that may make it possible to avoid an increase in the movement of drugs through the different countries of the region by sea. She added in this regard that the objective for the countries of the hemisphere “is to be able to combine strategies for reducing demand internally and also for reducing the external supply, by sea or by way of money laundering.” The international meeting brought together representatives from Argentina, Barbados, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guyana, Haiti, Mexico, Panama, the United States, Venezuela, and Chile.last_img read more


Banks oppose military inclusion in America’s recovery

December 17, 2020

gtqxsfod

Tagged: , , , , , , , , , , ,


first_imgLast week, the NCUA approved a technical correction to 12 USC § 701.34 (2), which will now include all military members in calculations to establish Low Income Credit Union (LICU) designation. This change makes sense from a DEI perspective, given the military’s role and participation in our nation’s communities. As expected, the bank lobby strongly opposes this correction and has threatened to sue and exclude military inclusion in our nation’s economic recovery effort. I believe the banks are making a mistake.Military families sacrifice a great deal as part of their service to our nation. The military lifestyle is characterized by frequent moves, long deployments, and guaranteed economic disruption. Yet, it is well-known that military families are a significant source of economic stability in many American communities. In fact, if you have ever observed what happens when the Department of Defense announces another round of Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) actions, you see the substantial economic impact cited in Congressional testimony by state and local governments as they fight to keep their bases intact. Military members and the missions they perform are vital in these communities.In terms of economic participation, military families have a role in the local economy. Like everyone else, military spouses and families must find work in the community to help pay their bills (e.g., rent, utilities, local taxes), spend in the local economy, and hopefully, save for the future. Plus, many military families are also small business owners and entrepreneurs. They perform an important role in a thriving economy both on and off the installation. You would be surprised at the amount of free enterprise taking place on the installation and in the local community.Yet, many military families were already struggling before the current pandemic. As military spouses lost their jobs, the need became even greater. In fact, all the service relief organizations and local food banks report overwhelming requests by military members to simply put food on the table. This is happening while military members continue to defend our nation in addition to transporting vital medical supplies, constructing field hospitals, collecting test samples, and providing medical care. The mission goes on.Underpinning this local economy and military participation are great credit unions. Credit unions are always part of the military lifestyle. In fact, many military members retain the same credit union membership throughout their careers. This is a testament to the quality of the financial products and services offered by America’s credit unions, backed by the high level of trust and confidence military members place in their financial institutions.As a result, gaining LICU designation allows these same credit unions to access secondary capital, accept non-member deposits, and offers relief from member business lending caps—leading to more lending capability. This increase in lending capability is precisely what credit unions need as our country struggles to recover from the devastating effects of stay-at-home orders. For this reason, the Defense Credit Union Council championed this initiative and applauds the unanimous decision made by the NCUA Board to remedy this former exclusion of the military. Credit unions should always strive to help the men and women of our military who secure our liberty.However, once again, the bank lobby is complaining and threatening to sue the NCUA over its pro-military stance. Clinging to the tired rhetoric of the past, and attempting to pit large versus small credit unions, reveals an underlying contempt that undervalues our military and further obstructs consumer access to credit union service. Yet, not once in their letters and articles did the bank lobby place any emphasis on serving our military. This is no coincidence and is not a winning strategy, much less sound policy.Banks are leaving military installations at the very time these families and communities need access to safe financial services and products most. Now the banks want to sue when these military communities, which they chose to leave, need access to capital to rebuild their local economies. Once again, banks are putting profits before service and shareholder interests ahead of consumer choice.

It has recorded 22 deaths from nearly 1,200 confirmed cases as of Wednesday.New Zealand had vowed to eliminate, not merely contain, the virus, which meant stopping transmission for two weeks after the last known case was cleared.Officials in Australia’s most populous state of New South Wales said elimination is no longer possible there due to fresh outbreaks following the easing of lockdown restrictions.  Topics : New Zealand must prepare for new coronavirus outbreaks as the pandemic spreads globally but will not drop its elimination strategy if community transmission was discovered, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said on Wednesday.Ardern said the epidemic was now “exploding” outside New Zealand and countries that had been models in the fight against COVID-19 had now experienced further community outbreaks.The government released a new framework on how it intended to fight the virus in the event of new cases, with elimination still the central strategy.last_img read more
