Nursing and industry make uneasy bedfellows

first_imgShe said that one of the greatest challenges is in bridgingthe gap between business culture and the health needs of employees. The combination of nursing and industry does not work, wasthe controversial claim presented by Elaine Hunt, managing director of the PTHGroup, an OH consultancy. Sharing her experiences of setting up OH practices in adiverse range of organisations, Hunt said there could be a number of reasonswhy she is called in. Previous Article Next Article An organisation might need to comply with Government healthinitiatives, be reacting to a serious workplace incident, or is perhapsfighting for an important contract that requires a competent OH professional onsite. Whatever the reason, said Hunt, OH professionals shouldnever compromise their role in the interest of keeping the client happy. Related posts:No related photos. Comments are closed.

Press release: Partnership project to help protect Nottinghamshire villages from flooding

first_imgTrent Rivers Trust Project Manager, Alan Graham, said: Construction of the first phase of a Natural Flood Management (NFM) scheme to help reduce flooding to communities in Nottinghamshire has now started in Lowdham.The Environment Agency has teamed up with Trent Rivers Trust and Nottinghamshire County Council on the £77,000 project which will help to reduce flood risk to over 170 properties in Lowdham and Lambley.The project, which has benefitted from £75,000 of Government funding, is expected to be completed by October 2019. It is part of a national £15million NFM programme, which, in addition to delivering flood risk reduction and environmental enhancements, aims to contribute to the growing evidence base for NFM.Working across 15 sites upstream of Lowdham, the measures involve constructing leaky wooden barriers to help reduce the amount of water that enters the Cocker Beck by slowing and storing water within the existing ditch network, to reduce the rate that flood water travels to the downstream communities. The barriers will also help to trap sediment to improve the water quality downstream.Environment Agency Area Flood and Coastal Risk Manager, Paul Lockhart, said: Nottinghamshire County Councillor John Cottee, Chairman of Communities and Place Committee, said: We’re delighted to have secured a Natural Flood Management scheme with our partners, Trent Rivers Trust and Nottinghamshire County Council, for the village of Lowdham. This scheme will allow us to manage flood risk using innovative solutions that are sustainable and cost-effective and, as part of the project, we will be looking at how the measures are contributing to flood risk reduction.center_img We’ve been working hard to develop and promote schemes to protect properties from flooding in dozens of our towns and villages as we know flooding devastates lives. Natural Flood Management is now recognised as a more sustainable approach to reducing flood risk and it also delivers lots of other environmental benefits too. It’s great that we’re working in partnership with local land owners, Trent Rivers Trust and the Environment Agency, to deliver this scheme. The Trent Rivers Trust are excited to be working with local landowners to reduce flood risk downstream in Lambley and Lowdham. By working closely with landowners we have been able to design interventions which not only slow the flow and allow natural infiltration, but will improve water quality and increase valuable habitats without having an adverse effect on farm business.last_img read more

Bicentennial of the Revolution

first_img Argentina commemorates the 200th anniversary of its Revolution on May 25. The nation broke colonial ties with Spain in 1810. At that time, Argentines set up an autonomous local government called the Primera Junta (First Board), composed of intellectuals and military leaders. The country declared its independence on July 9, 1816. The first constitution was adopted in 1853. The bicentennial is celebrated nationwide throughout the year. The festivities include patriotic ceremonies, conferences, sports and technology events, and the inauguration of bicentennial cultural centers. Details of the program are available at www.bicentenario.gov.ar. By Dialogo January 01, 2010last_img read more

Bryan Stow attacker pleads guilty to federal weapons charges

first_imgNorwood, shackled and sporting a bushy beard and shaved head, responded affirmatively more than two-dozen times when asked by the judge if he understood the charge and its implications.Assistant U.S. Attorney Max Shiner and defense attorney Nadine Hettle both declined comment outside court. Sentencing papers are expected to be filed in late April.Sanchez, 32, and Norwood, 34, both pleaded guilty in February 2014 to state charges of carrying out the opening-day attack on Stow in 2011 and were sentenced to eight- and four-year prison terms, respectively.Norwood was taken into federal custody last Feb. 21, a day after he was sentenced in state court.He had spent eight months in county jail beyond the two years of the four-year sentence he was required to serve as part of a plea deal in the Stow assault and was about to be released before federal authorities pounced. Authorities said they found about a half-dozen weapons — two semiautomatic rifles and a pistol, a 12-gauge shotgun and a revolver — along with nearly 70 rounds of ammunition when they searched Norwood’s home in connection with the Stow assault.Norwood told police that the guns were not his and that he had allowed Sanchez to store them at his residence. Federal authorities, however, said they determined that the weapons were in the possession of and available to both men.Court records showed both Norwood and Sanchez had prior convictions in San Bernardino before the unprovoked Stow assault at Dodger Stadium on March 31, 2011.Sanchez was convicted of evading an officer in 2006 and a misdemeanor count of domestic violence in 2003. Norwood was found guilty of felony spousal assault in 2006, the indictment shows.The weapons and ammunition were recovered from the garage attic crawl space at Norwood’s home, federal prosecutors said.Both Norwood and Sanchez remain in federal custody.Stow, now 45, remains severely impaired with permanent brain damage. The father of two and former paramedic spent the first two years after the attack in hospitals and rehabilitation facilities and still requires daily care by his family.Last July, a civil jury awarded roughly $18 million in damages to Stow. But after a lengthy deliberation, the panel found that only Los Angeles Dodgers LLC, the business entity created by ex-Dodgers owner Frank McCourt when he owned the team, and Stow’s two assailants were liable.Los Angeles Dodgers LLC will have to pay about $14.1 million of the final judgment. But the panel exonerated McCourt of any culpability in the attack. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img One of two men who beat Bryan Stow in a Dodger Stadium parking lot — leaving the San Francisco Giants fan with permanent brain injuries — pleaded guilty Thursday to a federal weapons charge that could put him behind bars for up to 10 years.Marvin Norwood entered his plea in Los Angeles to one federal count of being a felon in possession of firearms/ammunition. U.S. District Judge Fernando M. Olguin set May 7 for sentencing.Norwood’s co-defendant, Louie Sanchez, is set to plead guilty on Jan. 29 to the same charge.The weapons charge stems from a search at Norwood’s Rialto home before the pair were arrested in July 2011. Investigators said they located firearms, many of them loaded, and live ammunition belonging to Sanchez hidden in an attic.last_img read more

Win, Lose or Draw…Pitt is still it! B-9 (March 13)

first_imgLike us at https://www.facebook.com/pages/New-Pittsburgh-Courier/143866755628836?ref=hlFollow @NewPghCourier on Twitter  https://twitter.com/NewPghCourier BILL NEAL:10—Man, this past Saturday, March 9, was a walk down ole memory lane. Hit the floor at 6 a.m. “Sun was shining—plenty of light” (Temptations—“Since I Lost My Baby”—1964—try to keep up). Anyway, I got that old Pitt Field House feeling. Wanted to get going, get to the game, get the party started. Remember the Glory Days, Billy Knight, Kirk Bruce, Larry Harris, Sam Clancy, Clyde Vaughn, Charles Smith. An endless list of superstars and of course “Coach Girg.” Man-oh-man, those were the days. The Golden Panther breakfast, the sell-out crowds and most of all, the great times. Well, I can tell ya for a fact the good times are back. No, they may not equal the level that was produced when Billy was clearly “The Knight,” when Jerome “Owned the Glass,” before Charles was “the Toast of New York” and, when Sam “brought the Bam!” Nonetheless, these young men—“not kids”—are playing good old school basketball. A lot of energy, hard-nosed defense and a too-legit-to-quit attitude. You saw some good signs with Pitt defeating Notre Dame, 56-53, in the final home game of the year on March 9. The Pitt Panther basketball program is back on the map. Coach Jeff Capel has brought that Duke winning mentality to the ‘Burgh and given all that’s been accomplished along with the next recruiting class, the best is yet to come.:09—For the record, the best team in town just might be the Duquesne Dukes women’s basketball team. Check out the Lady Dukes as they host the A-10 tournament this year.:08—BTW…the Pens will make the playoffs and will challenge for the Stanley Cup. That’s all I can tell ya. Don’t get me wrong, I’d like to tell you more but, as you well know, when it comes to the hockey puck, I don’t know more.:07—Here’s your newly established “Idiot of the Week” listing. #1. And still holding onto first place after a two-year run—Donald Trump. #2. And, all by his sick self—R. Kelly…and look, this is when you know you’re sick…when you actually believe the stuff coming out of your mouth. And locking down #3—your boy—not mine—Antonio Brown. (Keep this to yourself. I don’t want it to get out that I said it, but I hope they trade him to a team in the new AAF football league. I am just saying!:06—Here’s your movie tip, and this week is easy. No stars, no basketballs, just silly and funny. Go see “Madea’s Family Funeral” and just laugh. That’s it!:05—For the conversation of it all, can someone please explain to me just one more time why Sam Clancy’s uniform is not retired and hanging on this wall at the Pete? Along with several other legends they’ve overlooked…Jennifer Bruce, former all-time scoring leader, Larry Harris, current all-time scoring leader. C’mon Man!:04—This just in, the folks in “The Locker Room” want me to tell our editor and publisher, Mr. Rod Doss and our new managing editor, Rob Taylor, that they want four weeks in the paper, not three. I ain’t telling them nothin’. I know exactly where my bread is buttered. Now shut up, Locker Room! (Oh yea, speaking of the Locker, let’s welcome my man Greg Down at the Kingsley Center in the Room. Keep on reading, my brother…):03—Be reminded…please direct your donations to the R. Kelly Defense Fund to “I Am Going To Hell For Sure.com…”:02—Achieving Greatness Inc., Attorney Jack Goodrich and Champions Live Sports Talk show hosted an award presentation celebration for the Penn Hills High School 5A State Championship Football Team.:01—At the buzzer…I mean no disrespect to the Panthers’ defensive effort, but, Pitt won over Notre Dame, 56-53, because I wore the Tony Dorsett “Classic Throwback” shirt. The only one in the building…coincidence??? I think not. To which it tells me I should have worn my Chuck Cooper throwback to the Duquesne games, they got slapped by Dayton, 78-67.:00—GAME OVER.last_img read more
