Friday Funnies – George Gregan clearing up who the ref is

first_imgFriday Jul 18, 2008 Friday Funnies – George Gregan clearing up who the ref is As the Wallabies and the Springboks prepare to face off against each other in Perth on Saturday, weve pulled out a funny clip from their meeting at the same stadium, Subiaco, four years ago.Cheeky George Gregan was playing his 100th test and felt on top of the world. After Schalk Burger gets clobbered by George Smith, who turns the ball over briliantly, he ends up on the wrong side of the ruck and gets a bit of shoe pie from Georgie.Bok captain John Smit takes exception to this, pointing it out to ref Chris White, but White is having none of it, which further encourages Gregan as he kindly points out to Smit exactly who the referee on the day is.Are you the ref mate? I think hes the ref. I think hes the ref. We listen to Chris White.George Gregan at his best, as even the ref couldnt help but crack a smile. :: Related Posts :: Hilarious George Gregan on field ballet ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

German hooker slots drop goal to help claim bonus point vs Romania

first_imgMonday Mar 16, 2015 German hooker slots drop goal to help claim bonus point vs Romania Rugby World Cup 2015 attendees Romania beat Germany 17-12 in their European Nations Cup Division 1A match in Heidelberg. The visitors scored the only try of the game, but with Germany trailing and time almost up, the hosts snatched a losing bonus point.Hooker Dale Garner, of Stourbridge RFC (a National 2 North club in the UK), was involved in the build up at 0-3, and obviously realised that a try wasn’t on as they didn’t have much momentum. So after hopping up off the floor and grabbing the loose ball, Garner went for a snap drop.The result, three points for his side, which led to them getting within seven by the end, and achieving a losing bonus point against a traditionally much stronger side. Not bad for a front rower.*This write up has been edited due to incorrect facts at time of writing.

Another call for prominent journalist’s release as he begins third year in prison

first_img Organisation Damascus TV presenter arrested under cyber-crime law Wave of Kurdish arrests of Syrian journalists RSF_en News News SyriaMiddle East – North Africa May 13, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Another call for prominent journalist’s release as he begins third year in prison to go further Reporters Without Borders calls for the release of journalist Michel Kilo, who has been held since 14 May 2006. “President Bashar el-Assad’s regime tolerates absolutely no criticism and is constantly trampling on press freedom,” the organisation says. “Dozens of political prisoners, including journalists, have falling victim in the past few years to courts that are subservient to the political authorities.” Reporters Without Borders reiterates its call for the release of Syrian writer and journalist Michel Kilo, who is about begin his third year in Adra prison, in Damascus. Arrested on 14 May 2006, Kilo was given a three-year jail term one year later for “weakening national sentiment.” The authorities have until now refused to shorten his sentence.“President Bashar el-Assad’s regime tolerates absolutely no criticism and is constantly trampling on press freedom,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Dozens of political prisoners, including journalists, have falling victim in the past few years to courts that are subservient to the political authorities. Michel Kilo is one of them.”The organisation added: “Kilo has been detained for the past two years for calling for relations between Syria and Lebanon to be normalised. There no longer seems to be any limit to the government’s blind and brutal repression, with 12 other pro-democracy activists soon to be tried. In view of the verdicts recently handed down by Damascus courts, we fear they will be dealt with severely”Now aged 68 and a leading figure in the struggle for democracy in Syria, Kilo was arrested after signing the “Beirut-Damascus, Damascus-Beirut” appeal, a joint declaration issued by Syrian and Lebanese intellectuals calling for a radical overhaul of relations between the two countries. It was condemned by the Syrian authorities, who arrested Kilo and other prominent signatories such as lawyer Awar El-Bunni.Another 12 pro-democracy activists were arrested and placed in Adra prison in December 2007 after signing the Damascus Declaration, calling for democratic reforms in Syria. They are due to be tried soon on charges of “harming the prestige of the state,” “publishing false information,” “membership of a secret organisation designed to destabilise the state” and “fueling ethnic and racial tension.” Sign the petition for Michel Kilo’s release.Reporters Without Borders established a system of sponsorship 18 years ago in which international media are encouraged to adopt imprisoned journalists. More than 200 news organisations, journalists’ associations, press clubs and other entities throughout the world are currently supporting journalists by regularly calling on the authorities to release them and by publicising their cases. Kilo has been adopted by Le Pèlerin (France), the 06 Mediterranean Press Club (France), various Spanish forums, the Almería Press Association (Spain) and the Calafell City Hall (Spain).

‘Hero Pay’ Proves Costly for Some Stores in Nearby Communities

first_img Subscribe Community News Kroger, which owns Ralphs supermarkets and Food 4 Less, will shutter at least five stores combined in Los Angeles and Long Beach after those cities enacted hazard, or “hero” pay ordinances for grocery store and pharmacy workers.The five stores include three Ralphs stores — one at 9616 W. Pico Blvd. in Los Angeles, another at 3300 W. Slauson Ave., also in Los Angeles, and another at 3380 N. Los Coyotes Diagonal, in Long Beach.Two Food 4 Less stores, one at 5420 W. Sunset Blvd. in Hollywood, and the other at 2185 E. South St., also in Long Beach, are also being targeted for closure. The company, which said the stores were “long struggling” locations, said they will be closed on May 15.Under the Los Angeles ordinance, grocery store workers received an extra $5 due to hazards and increased workloads caused by the coronavirus.Long Beach, Pomona, Montebello, Santa Ana, Costa Mesa, and Irvine have passed ordinances that pay these workers an additional $4 an hour.Los Angeles County, which governs nearby unincorporated Altadena, has also passed a worker pay hike ordinance.The Pasadena City Council could begin discussion on a similar ordinance on Monday. The four members of the council’s Economic Development and Technology (EDTech) Committee split in their support of hazard pay with Councilmembers Steve Madison and Jessica Rivas supporting the idea and Vice Mayor Andy Wilson and Councilmember Tyron Hampton, the committee’s chair, expressing opposition.Hampton said he feared that a local pay increase ordinance would lead to store closures in minority areas.“I know that when the markets do get closed, they are going to be closed in my neighborhood,” said Hampton, who chairs the committee. “I’m trying to get markets to come into the neighborhoods north of the 210 Freeway.”A local ordinance could see an increase in pay for 120 days. According to a city staff report, a grocery store worker’s average pay is $14 an hour, or about $28,000 a year.If that is the average salary of Pasadena’s grocery store workers, it would mean that the city’s 15 chain grocery stores are not paying a mandated $15 an hour minimum wage which was established by the city last year.According to Kroger, the mandated pay increase in Los Angeles adds an additional $20 million in operating costs over the 120-day life of the ordinance, making it financially unsustainable to continue operating underperforming locations.“It’s never our desire to close a store, but when you factor in the increased costs of operating during COVID-19, consistent financial losses at these three locations, and an extra pay mandate that will cost nearly $20 million over the next 120 days, it becomes impossible to operate these three stores,” said the Cincinnati-based supermarket chain.”According to Supermarketnews.com, which provides analysis on the performance of supermarket chains on an adjusted basis, Kroger posted a net income of $630 million in fiscal year 2020.After the closures were announced, the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union said essential workers in grocery stores are putting their health at risk every day to make sure families can put food on the table.“Hazard pay is not just about recognizing the health risks grocery workers face. It’s about making sure that these essential workers have the support they need to keep our grocery stores safe for customers and ensure all our families have the food we need as the pandemic continues,” the union said in a statement.“They’re threatening the food supply for communities hit hard by the region’s more than 130 COVID-19 grocery store outbreaks and destroying the jobs of hundreds of essential grocery workers,” the union said.

Man charged with check forgery, 10 false identifications

first_img Twitter Local News Previous article011219_Gymnastics_06Next article5 Ways Technology Can Help You Achieve New Year’s Resolutions Digital AIM Web Support Tony Simmons Jr. A 39-year-old man was arrested after he attempted to cash a fake check and was found with 10 forms of fraudulent identification, an Odessa Police Department affidavit detailed. Tony Clint Simmons Jr. was charged Saturday with forgery, a state jail felony, tampering with government record with intent to defraud or harm, a state jail felony, and fraudulent use or possession of identifying information, a second-degree felony. At 10:18 p.m. Saturday, OPD officers responded to Kwik Kash located at 2804 Andrews Highway in reference to forgery, the affidavit stated. Simmons attempted to cash a $2,968.23 check payable to Noel Garcia II from Ajuua’s Mexican Restaurant, while using a Texas identification card belonging to Noel Garcia II but with a photo of Simmons glued over the photo of Garcia to cash the check, the affidavit detailed. The check appeared to have been altered by white out and changed the payable to and amount and then copied onto watermarked check paper. Julian Rubio, a manager at Ajuua’s Mexican Restaurant, stated the original check was paid to a Jose Yanez on Jan. 11 for $17.35.

After Simmons was arrested, his vehicle was impounded as it was running outside Kwik Kash, the affidavit stated. Simmons’ vehicle was inspected and officers found a North Dakota ID card, three Texas temporary ID’s and a one Texas temporary drivers license, all with the name Jason Ray Hughes, while two Texas ID cards had the name Jason Matthew Hughes. All identifications had photos of Simmons glued or superimposed over the photo. Officers also found a Texas Department of Criminal Justice offender identification card and social security card belonging to Jacob Chase Owen inside the vehicle.

The talent war rages on

first_img Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos. While organisations accept that talent comes at a premium, are they lookingbeyond traditional selection practices? Research exclusive to Personnel Todaysuggests a definite lack of ambition when it comes to improving the processEveryone is talking about the ‘war for talent’. But what are firms doing towin the best people? And are they using robust new ideas to identify, attractand keep this sought-after group? A survey carried out across numerousindustries by Personnel Today and talent research company Kenexa found there iswidespread anxiety about finding and keeping talent, but new ideas are thin onthe ground. The survey – carried out in January – looked at 222 senior HR professionals,working in banking, financial services, chemicals, IT, manufacturing, publicsector, retail, services, telecoms and utilities. Of those surveyed, 90 per cent agreed or strongly agreed that recruitingtalented people is a key issue for business today – and only 7 per centdisagreed, or strongly disagreed. And an even higher level – 93 per cent – seethe retention of such staff as a key issue. But despite the high priority they claim to give to talent, 57 per cent ofcompanies do not have a specific talent management strategy or plan. This suggeststhat their approach is at best ad hoc and that efforts are not co-ordinatedacross the organisation. It is also likely to mean that there is a lack ofworkforce planning and the connection between human capital needs and thebusiness plan has yet to be made. Some larger companies have developed the post of talent director, or talentchampion. However, the survey shows that only 37 per cent have anyone whosespecific remit is to manage talent. When looking at ways of assessing and predicting talent, companies arerelying on traditional methods. The most widely used ways to assess talent areformal qualifications or performance appraisal. More progressive approaches –such as talent or trait profiling – are only used by 10 per cent of firms inthe survey. Performance appraisal is used by a large proportion of organisations, but itshould be noted that many appraisal systems only rate people against limitedorganisational benchmarks and rely heavily on subjective opinion. Paper qualifications are still the bedrock of talent assessment, rather thanscientific methods. But about 30 per cent of companies are using psychometricsor assessment centre approaches. Overall, it seems that companies are notupdating their talent management practices. Despite all the hype about talent, the most acute shortages are still inmanagement and executive areas. Talented team leaders are also in demand.Shortages of operational staff appear to be less severe. There is also a big demand for frontline staff and for graduates andprofessionals. Frontline staff may be highly sought after because of theincreasing importance of customer-facing employees, and the shift toservice-based companies away from manufacturing. A lack of action is indicated by the fact that 58 per cent of respondentsare not entirely happy with their capacity to find and keep top performers.This means that in most organisations much more needs to be done. And the factthat 23 per cent of HR managers are neutral about the link between talentresourcing and business performance suggests there are many HR managers who arenot convinced that talent management is a priority if companies are to succeedcommercially. There is strong agreement that the war for talent is reality. Only 4 percent of those surveyed disagreed with this, while 75 per cent agree or stronglyagree that they are in competition with other organisations for a limited poolof talented staff. Opinion is divided when it comes to finding ways of tackling this. Thesurvey found that 31 per cent of respondents believe their company needs toturn to external consultants to solve their talent-seeking problems. But almosthalf are undecided, suggesting that the preferred option is to develop internalsolutions. Overall, the findings of the survey suggest that, while there is awarenessof the vital importance of talent management, the majority of companies are nothappy with their progress. And there is little evidence of a willingness tobreak with traditional approaches. The talent war rages onOn 19 Feb 2002 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. last_img read more
