first_imgWednesday Oct 7, 2020 Star studded RugbyPass OFFLOAD delivers exactly what we expected from it The much anticipated RugbyPass Offload show went live today, bringing together both former and current players in a slightly new format that is sure to entertain and enlighten rugby fans with each new episode. ADVERTISEMENTHosted by Christina Mahon, Offload features a player from each of the home nations, giving fans a truly diverse view on all things rugby, past, present, and future.The inaugural episode sees former England captain Dylan Hartley open up on various topics, including how he feels players have ‘literally nothing’ post rugby, if they don’t set themselves up in the way that another panelist, Doctor Jamie Roberts, has.Roberts talks openly about how he had hoped to stay in Cape Town a bit longer, but Covid-19 meant he had to pivot and now finds himself with the Dragons.Always popular Ireland winger Simon Zebo dials in from Paris and as ever, brings a fun element to proceedings and touches on that classic British & Irish Lions tour fines meeting.He also talks about the reason for that happening.WATCH: Simon Zebo’s prank on Conor Murray during Lions 2013 tour matchScotland’s Ryan Wilson also makes an appearance, giving his perspective on things from his base in Glasgow, including how the lack of crowd means that the likes of ‘chatty’ Bundee Aki can be heard all match.It’s an enjoyable watch/listen with some big topics covered, so worth getting comfortable for.ADVERTISEMENTThe video episodes will be up on youtube weekly (watch below) and podcast listeners can subscribe and listen via iTunes and Spotify.

Media, human rights groups urge Obama and Trudeau to call for charges against Turkish journalists to be dropped

first_imgNews Help by sharing this information Turkey’s never-ending judicial persecution of former newspaper editor Human rights groups warns European leaders before Turkey summit Several media and human rights organisations have joined Reporters Without Borders (RSF) in letters to United States President Barack Obama and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau ahead of the NATO summit in Warsaw, Poland, July 8 and 9. The letters ask each head of state to call for charges to be dropped against RSF’s Turkey representative Erol Önderoglu and his two colleagues, Sebnem Korur Fincanci and Ahmet Nesin, as both leaders prepare to meet with Turkish President Erdogan at the summit. News Organisation President Barack Obama The White House 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, NW Washington, DC 20500 Paris, July 7, 2016 Dear Mr. President, Reporters Without Borders (RSF), an international organization that defends press freedom, and the undersigned organizations would like to draw your attention to the ridiculous terrorism charges being brought against three journalists in Turkey – Erol Önderoglu, Sebnem Korur Fincanci and Ahmet Nesin. As you are about to travel to Poland July 8 and 9 for a NATO summit, we ask that you urge Turkish President Erdogan to call for all charges against Önderoglu, Fincanci and Nesin to be dropped, to reform Turkey’s anti-terrorism laws that are being used to prosecute journalists and human rights defenders who are merely doing their job, and release all remaining journalists in prison. A leading defender of freedom of information in Turkey, Erol Önderoglu has been RSF’s Turkey representative for the past 20 years. He has written many of our organization’s reports and he covers Turkish free speech issues for the Bianet news website. A valued council member of IFEX, the global network defending and promoting free expression, he is often consulted by the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) and many other international organizations. He is also very well known in his country. Sebnem Korur Fincanci is a journalist, writer and professor of medicine, and she heads Turkey’s leading human rights NGO, the Human Rights Foundation of Turkey (TIHV). Ahmet Nesin is a well-known journalist and writer who heads the Nesin Foundation. Created by leading author and playwright Aziz Nesin, it helps children in difficulty. Önderoglu and his two colleagues were arrested and placed in pre-trial detention on June 20 because they showed support for the Kurdish daily Özgür Gündem by symbolically acting as its editor-in-chief for one day. They have been charged with “terrorist propaganda,” “incitement to commit a crime” and “praising a crime or a criminal” on the basis of articles published on May 18, May 30 and June 7 about power struggles within the various Turkish security forces and about the ongoing military operations against Kurdish rebels affiliated with the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) in southeastern Anatolia. They spent more than ten days in pre-trial detention until Önderoglu and Fincanci were released on bail on June 30. Their colleague Nesin was released the following day. None of the charges against them have been dropped and they are still facing prison terms of up to 14.5 years. Önderoglu and Fincanci’s first trial hearing is set for November 11. The legal proceedings against them are a direct continuation of the aggressive approach to the media seen in the proceedings against well-known journalists Can Dündar and Erdem Gül launched in June 2015. They are indicative of the way the authorities are cracking down on Turkish civil society and are misusing the country’s draconian anti-terrorism law. Ranked 151st out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index, the Turkish government is intensifying its repression of journalists. After his release on June 30, Önderoglu told RSF “our arrests show that the traditional harassment of journalists is being progressively extended to all civil society critics. At a time when the Turkish authorities are trying to restore their credibility with European institutions, their respect for international legal standards of freedom of expression is long overdue.” There is still much more that must be done for Önderoglu and his colleagues. While they never should have spent a single day in detention to begin with, we strongly believe that the international outcry caused by their arrest played a role in their release. As one of Turkey’s allies, we are counting on the United States to demonstrate its commitment to freedom of expression and information in Turkey. I thank you in advance, Mr. President, for the careful attention you give to this letter.

Organisational risk of the Peter Principle

first_img Previous Article Next Article Read full article Comments are closed. The Peter Principle is a concept inwhich the selection of a candidate for a position is based on their performance in their current role rather than on their abilities relevant to the intended role. The business then of course running the risk of promoting someone until they are in a role in which they under-perform. How do we avoid this?From an HR perspective, the risk associated with the Peter Principle can be negated simply taking on-board the direction that an employee wishes to take their career, as opposed to promoting a staff member according to the company organisational structure only. Of course this doesn’t mean that we place less importance on the business objectives, because of course these are very important also – What it does mean that we should be using far more foresight when hiring and aiming to align someone’s key professional growth objectives with the organisational goals as much as possible.When we align an employee’s growth plan with organisational objectives, both parties stand to reap the benefits and in turn minimise risk. The employee is given the opportunity to achieve their professional goals and grow their knowledge and experience in the areas that the business requires that skill/experience which of course limits the likelihood of poor performance.Recruitment needs to become less reactionary (where possible) and more forward thinking and strategic. In doing so, employees will note that you have their best interests in mind along with other commercial interests, and this in turn – in most cases, will be reciprocated in the form of staff being engaged, driven and committed to achievement, all whilst managing potential future risk.center_img Organisational risk of the Peter PrincipleShared from missc on 9 Dec 2014 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more

This was the first opportunity the people of Dundee had had to see ‘their’ Ship’s Company, the city is one of Duncan’s two civic affiliations, the other being Belfast.The parade also included 1st Battalion Scots Guards, Duncan’s affiliated Army regiment, allowing some useful early liaison between the two units, as the Scots Guards Regimental Lieutenant Colonel, Brigadier Nickerson, highlighted when he addressed the parade in City Square:“HMS Duncan is not just any ship, it is our ship.”In addition to a Civic Reception prior to the parade which was attended by several members of the Ship’s Company including Commander Phil Game, Duncan’s Senior Naval Officer, The Lord Provost of Dundee, Mr Bob Duncan, kindly laid on a lunch reception for all uniformed personnel which was very well received.Mr Duncan stated:”Nothing stirs the heart more than the sight of the immaculately-turned-out soldiers, sailors and airmen of our armed forces. Everyone here today is a credit to the country. You do us all very proud.”Despite some torrential rain at the end of the parade which slightly curtailed the day’s programme, the day was very successful, not only laying the foundations for future liaison between Dundee and Duncan but also raising awareness of the role of the RN in the wider context of Armed Forces Day.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, July 10, 2012; Image: Royal Navy July 10, 2012 Back to overview,Home naval-today HMS Duncan’s Personnel Take Part in Armed Forces Day (UK) View post tag: HMScenter_img View post tag: Naval View post tag: forces HMS Duncan’s Personnel Take Part in Armed Forces Day (UK) View post tag: personnel View post tag: Duncan View post tag: take Training & Educationlast_img read more
