Coleman refuses to make excuses

first_imgEverton defender Seamus Coleman has revealed he won’t make excuses after struggling to return to his best form following his return from a ten-month layoff.While the Republic of Ireland international has not been at his best in recent weeks he refused to look for excuses and insists the leg which was broken has never been a problem for him since making his comeback.“Never for a second. It does not give me a day’s bother,” he said, according to Sports Mole.“Unfortunately the injury I’ve had this season (stress fracture of a foot) has turned out to be very frustrating; coming back, pulling out, coming back.“But there are no excuses, to play in the Premier League you have to be at the top level and if you are not you get found out.“Unfortunately this season I’ve not been up to my own high standards and I’m the first to admit that.Premier LeaguePremier League Betting: Match-day 5 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Going into the Premier League’s match-day five with a gap already beginning to form at the top of the league.

He won’t get big-headed by his performances.“He’s a great lad, he’s had a tough time to get here and I can see him going to the very top.”last_img read more

Hughton We deserved more

first_imgBrighton manager Chris Hughton believes his side at least a point in their 2-0 loss at Bournemouth on Saturday.David Brooks’ brace was the difference on Saturday as 10-men Brighton succumbed to their third Premier League defeat in a row.Despite feeling hard done by, Hughton admitted his side failed to utilize their chances in the game.“I thought we were good value to get something from the game. The difference between the two sides was they put their opportunities away and we didn’t,” Hughton told the club’s website.Pep Guardiola: “Aymeric Laporte’s injury doesn’t look good” Andrew Smyth – August 31, 2019 Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola admits Aymeric Laporte’s injury “does not look good” and fears the defender will be out for a long time.“We were good in the first half and they scored against the run of play. It was very difficult towards the end when we were down to ten men, but certainly, before that, I thought we were always in the game.“It was a wonderful strike by Brooks for the first goal, but I thought we created really good chances of our own.“If you don’t put your chances away, then you know that a very good Bournemouth side that plays with a lot of pace, with two players up front that run in behind, is going to cause you problems.“The chances are the pinnacle moments of any game, but on the balance of play, I thought we deserved more.”last_img read more

US adds solid 224000 jobs Fed rate cut may be less certain

first_img WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. employers sharply stepped up their hiring in June, adding a robust 224,000 jobs, an indication of the economy’s durability after more than a decade of expansion.The strength of the jobs report the government issued Friday could complicate a decision for the Federal Reserve late this month on whether to cut interest rates to help support the economy. Most investors have anticipated a rate cut in July and perhaps one or two additional Fed cuts later in the year. That scenario may be less likely now.Stocks sold off Friday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average down roughly 150 points in late-morning trading, reflecting a view that the Fed might engage in fewer rate hikes. The yield on the 10-year U.S. Treasury note climbed to 2.06% from just under 2%.June’s solid job growth followed a tepid gain of 72,000 jobs in May, a result that had fueled concerns about the economy’s health. But with June’s pace of hiring, employers have now added, on average, a solid 171,000 jobs for the past three months. Last month’s burst of hiring suggests that many employers have shrugged off concerns about weaker growth, President Donald Trump’s trade wars and the waning benefits from U.S. tax cuts.“Although there are drags on the economy in 2019, the expansion should continue through this year,” said Gus Faucher, chief economist at PNC Financial Services. “The doom and gloom was overblown.”The unemployment rate ticked up to 3.7% in June from 3.6% for the previous two months, reflecting an influx of people seeking jobs who were initially counted as unemployed. Average hourly wages rose 3.1% from a year ago.Trump responded to Friday’s jobs report by tweeting, “JOBS, JOBS, JOBS!” But the strong hiring gains have lessened the case, at least for now, for the Fed to slash rates as Trump has repeatedly and aggressively pressed the central bank to do.“If we had a Fed that would lower interest rates, we’d be like a rocket ship,” the president asserted to reporters in an appearance Friday. “But we’re paying a lot of interest, and it’s unnecessary. But we don’t have a Fed that knows what they’re doing.”Last year, Fed officials raised rates four times, in part to stave off the risk of high inflation and in part to try to ensure that they would have room to cut rates if the economy stumbled.On Friday, the Fed reiterated that it would act as necessary sustain the economic expansion, while noting that most Fed officials have lowered their expectations for the course of rates. The Fed’s statement came in its semiannual report on monetary policy.In Friday’s jobs report for June, the hiring gains were broad. Construction companies added 21,000 workers after having increased their payrolls by only 5,000 in May. Manufacturers hired 17,000, up from just 3,000 in May. Health care and social assistance added 50,500 jobs. Hiring by transportation and warehousing companies increased 23,900.The government sector was a major source of hiring, adding 33,000 jobs in June. Nearly all those gains were at the local level.For Todd Leff, CEO of Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa, the resilience of the U.S. job market has provided both an opportunity and a challenge. With more Americans earning steady paychecks, demand for massages and facials has increased, and the company plans to add 60 locations this year and roughly 1,800 jobs. But the low unemployment rate has also made it hard to find and retain workers.“We could hire 1,000 more employees today — if they were available,” said Leff, whose company has about 430 locations and is based in Trevose, Pennsylvania.Investors have been turning their attention to the Fed, which has expressed concern about threats to the economy, especially the uncertainties from Trump’s trade wars, and about inflation remaining persistently below its 2% target level. A Fed rate cut, whenever it happens, would be its first in more than a decade.Joshua Shapiro, chief U.S. economist for the consultancy MFR, said the likelihood of a Fed rate cut late this month is now slightly lower, though he still estimates that the federal funds rate — what banks charge each other — will be sharply lower by the end of next year.Ryan Wang, U.S. economist at HSBC Bank, suggested that the solid jobs report might create a communications challenge for Fed Chairman Jerome Powell when he testifies Wednesday and Thursday to congressional committees.The financial markets still foresee a rate cut of 25 points this month, Wang said, adding, “It will be important to see if Chair Powell lays out on a strong case for near-term monetary easing in his testimony next week.”The sluggish pace of hiring in May had signaled that employers might have grown more cautious because of global economic weakness and, perhaps, some difficulty in finding enough qualified workers at the wages that companies are willing to pay.The pace of the overall economy is widely thought to be slowing from annual growth that neared a healthy 3% last year. Consumer spending has solidified. Home sales are rebounding. But America’s manufacturing sector is weakening along with construction spending. Growth in the services sector, which includes such varied industries as restaurants, finance and recreation, slowed in June.Overall, though, employers have been adding jobs faster than new workers are flowing into the economy. That suggests that the unemployment rate will remain near its five-decade low and that the economy will keep growing, even if only modestly.

Disney Plus at 7 Just take this parents money already

first_img2:28 Every Pixar movie will be on Disney Plus, available to stream anytime. That includes all the Toy Stories, Cars, Inside Out, Monsters, Inc, A Bug’s Life, Finding Nemo, Finding Dory and WALL-E. It’ll also have scads of other Disney movies, including Frozen, 101 Dalmatians, Lady and the Tramp, Mary Poppins, The Parent Trap, The Little Mermaid and, yes, The Princess Diaries. Disney Plus: Every show and movie Disney confirmed What do all these titles have in common? The kids have chosen every single one for Family Movie Night, many of them more than once. A lot of The Princess Diaries went over my 3-year-old’s head, but the older girls loved it. nullNext time we watch (and rewatch) Dumbo, we’ll need Disney Plus. Disney We all watched Dumbo in the theater a couple of weeks ago — to rave kid reviews — and my girls are already talking about Frozen 2 and Toy Story 4. The oldest is begging me to let her watch Captain Marvel. All four, and more, will be available to stream (without a rental fee, four of Daddy’s favorite words) exclusively on Disney Plus. Beyond movie night there’s plenty of other kid fun in the offing. Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Duck Tales and Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan are shows my kids know and love. And I’m quite confident they’ll enjoy Monsters at Work and Magic of the Animal Kingdom, two exclusive TV series coming to Disney Plus in year one. disney-plus-frozen-tv-appThe Disney Plus app looks like a one-stop shop for family movie night.  Disney Think of the children! OK, $7 every month or $70 for a yearly subscription isn’t chump change, and these things add up. I can’t see myself quitting Netflix or Hulu, for example (though the promise of a discounted Disney Plus/Hulu bundle has me very interested), and there’s only so many subscriptions I can afford. Subscription fatigue is strong in this one. If Disney had priced its service at $13 (the same as Netflix) or even $10, it might be a tougher call. But there’s something about $7 that feels just right, at least for my budget. Even if that $7 subscription saves me just one $5 rental fee, it’s totally worth it — in part because Disney Plus has a bunch of other stuff that makes my parental heart twitterpate. There’s unlimited downloads, so I can pack the iPad with movies and TV shows for long car trips, camping and plane rides.My kids already love (and spend time customizing) avatars and profiles on Netflix and the Disney Now app, so they’ll be right at home with Disney Plus’ versions.It’s just a matter of time before they’re old enough to watch Star Wars and, yes, Marvel — and paying for those individually really adds up. The National Geographic stuff is the perfect parental screen time sop. It’s educational, right? Sayonara, guilt!I can have them each kick in $1 every month from their allowances and teach them the value of money. “Clean up or I’m canceling Disney Plus.”screen-shot-2019-04-12-at-11-22-34-amMy kids love customizing profiles in Netflix. I’m betting they’ll have a field day with Disney Plus. Screenshot by David Katzmaier/Netflix Seriously, you guys, I’m getting this for my kidsAs if all that kid stuff wasn’t enough, the Disney Plus fare for grownups helps justify part of that $7. Until a couple of weeks ago I wasn’t a Marvel fan, but midway through my binge-race to watch every Marvel film before Avengers: Endgame, that’s no longer the case. Turns out a lot of these comic book movies are pretty darn good, and I can even see myself wanting to rewatch a few. I’m curious about the Disney Plus spin-off series centered around The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, as well as the one about Scarlet Witch and Vision, and the upcoming films, starting with Captain Marvel and including Endgame will also find an exclusive home on Disney Plus. Of course I love Star Wars too, and until my kids are old enough to binge those flicks with me, I’d definitely watch The Mandalorian. The same goes for the final installment, Star Wars Episode 9: The Rise of Skywalker. As it is for many parents, the word Disney for me is synonymous with quality family entertainment. One of our best trips was a visit to Disneyland last summer. My father grew up in Southern California, had a lifetime pass to Disneyland and loved the classic films so much he recorded a bunch to Betamax. We’d sit around watching Robin Hood and Fantasia for my own childhood family movie nights. My kids today understand my job largely with the help of an iconic Goofy short.

Do you think I have a choice? Disney At my house, every Friday is Family Movie Night. Three kids, aged 9, 8 and 3, take turns choosing the film they want to watch. Or rewatch. Or fight over watching for the fourth time. Their negotiations often start days before and become more heated as the fateful night approaches. On hearing that the youngest wants to watch Cars again, his sisters inevitably begin their subtle tugs toward an acceptable substitute, like Coco or Moana.  Sometimes I step in and play arbiter, especially if a movie is available “for free” as part of a subscription. “Kids, Moana isn’t on Netflix anymore, so it’s $4 to rent. How about Incredibles 2?” Usually they ignore my thrifty suggestions. “Fine,” I think to myself, “it’s just $4.” A small price to pay for entertainment harmony, and Moana is really good. But I sure would love the option to watch it, and any number of other great Disney movies, as part of an affordable subscription.  9 My #8: As a parent with kids of a certain age, do I have any way whatsoever to avoid subscribing? https://t.co/ivjlW7BxET— David Katzmaier (@dkatzmaier) April 11, 2019 Disney Plus will cost $7 a month and launch Nov. 12 Disney Plus will allow downloads for offline viewing In Disney Plus Frozen 2 teaser, Elsa’s not OKlast_img read more

Ride into rail history

first_imgRare pictures of the first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru inside a rail engine or the first President Rajendra Prasad walking outside a station in south India provide a glimpse into the 160 years of Indian Railways.Unlocking a treasure trove of archives, the Railways has brought on display over 200 rare black and white and sepia-toned images in an exquisite collection titled ‘160 Years of Indian Railways: An exhibition of selected photographs from the Indian Railways’ that opened up for view recently at the Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’‘Railways have been so intrinsic to people’s lives in India. And, through this exhibition we wanted to bring its inception and history closer to people’s mind which may be getting lost in the annals of time,’ says Director, Information and Publicity, Indian Railways, Seema Sharma.However, in a departure from a regular commemorative tribute, the exhibition is curated ‘thematically rather than sequentially’ and celebrates the history and heritage, architectural and otherwise, while evoking a liberal feel of nostalgia. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixSo, pictures of a late 19th century image of Gothic Victoria Terminus (now Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus) in then Bombay, one of Frontier Mail with its front decked up with British flags, royal guests being received at a makeshift station built in Delhi during the 1911 Durbar, as well as a rare old photo of Ranchi, Bilaspur and Colaba stations built in Victorian style, among others, are on view.Photographs of Nehru, Indira Gandhi and a young Rajiv Gandhi have been captured together at a platform, neon signs of ubiquitous ‘Murphy Radio’ company over Patna Junction and the then Madras Central station buildings and the elegant Egmore station waiting rooms are rare views. One photograph captures a narrow gauge train (Dabhoi to Miyagam) of 1863 which has bullocks pulling it instead of an engine.The collection is divided into several themes like – ‘Station Architecture’, ‘Locomotives and Trains’, ‘Personalities’, ‘Carriages and Wagons’, ‘Men at Work’ among others.‘The ‘Station Architecture’ has a special segment as many stations today look completely different compared to what their look was back in those years. The Ranchi station has changed a lot and the two pictures displayed here show the rare heritage look of the building in the colonial days,’ says Seema.‘But, I believe the part that lends more interest to the exhibition is the ‘Men at Work’ section whereby one actually sees the ‘hands and feet’ of the Indian Railway, the gangmen, the foreman, the light man who used to climb up a stair to light up the lamp in those days, etc are great pictures of human dignity and pride in one’s profession,’ she says.Apart from the Railway archives, the photographs have been sourced from the Press Information Bureau and the Railway museums from the 17 zonal offices throughout the country.Explaining how the exhibition began taking shape over the last five months, Seema says there were ‘no pre-set themes as the themes emerged out of the collection themselves. We had sent out request to different railway zones to contribute from their own archives. And, after we sat sifting through the collection, ranging over 600, hours after hours, themes and patterns began to emerge, say architecture or marketing techniques etc.’last_img read more

Additional Links and Reads Marin Katusa Interviewed by Newsmax Summed up in 6½ minutes… a thorough and chilling interview with Marin about the new Axis of Energy emerging between Russia, China, and Iran. “We are willing to supply any shortage which may arise,” said Saudi oil minister Ali al-Naimi. The “we” in the statement above is OPEC, the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries. Don’t be fooled, though, OPEC is not your friend, and if you believe OPEC will come to your rescue when your oil runs out, I have some magic beans to sell you. OPEC is made up of 12 oil-producing nations, including, Iran, Algeria, Angola, Venezuela, Nigeria, and Libya—and many of them are quite hostile toward the US. Ironically, most of the oil produced within the OPEC nations was originally discovered and developed by American companies. “One hundred dollars is a fair price for everybody—consumers, producers, oil companies. It’s a fair price. It’s a good price,” said Saudi oil minister Ali al-Naimi. Fair price? How does OPEC determine US$100 is a fair price? In a 2009 issue of the Casey Energy Report, we stated what the price of oil needs to be for the members of OPEC to balance their budgets. We dug deep into their budgets and determined that for the governments of the OPEC countries to fund all of their social programs, they would need US$80 per barrel of oil. The fair price of oil changed in 2011—the Arab Spring transformed the input values for “fair price.” The end result of the Arab Spring presented a harsh reality: all of a sudden, it cost the OPEC nations more to fund their social programs and prevent another social uprising. Take Saudi Arabia, for example, which committed over US$35 billion to education and housing subsidies, jobless benefits, and debt write-offs. The government even created a sports channel with those funds to keep all the unemployed guys occupied watching sports, rather than scheming another uprising. Don’t expect another Arab Spring this summer, as the Saudi population now has access to the Soccer World Cup. My money is on Messi and the Argentines, but that’s a whole different issue. Other OPEC members have followed the Saudis’ subsidization program, which they finance through higher oil prices. So, back to the topic of oil. OPEC countries produce over one-third of the world’s oil, and most of the world has become addicted to OPEC oil—but there is one thing we have that they don’t. I mentioned earlier that most of the oil and gas deposits whose fruits OPEC is reaping today were originally discovered and developed by American companies. Again, let’s take Saudi Arabia as an example. The crown jewel of Saudi Arabia is the gigantic Ghawar oil field, which was discovered in 1948 by Americans working for a company called Arabian American Oil Company (now Saudi Aramco), but the American companies involved that did all the exploration and development are known today as Exxon and Chevron. By 1980, Saudi Arabia essentially “nationalized” and purchased a 100% interest in Aramco. The American Dream There is a lot wrong with the United States of today, starting, in my humble opinion, with the president. But even Obama’s awful leadership can’t kill the power of the American Dream. America is still a nation of freedom where everyone has the opportunity to prosper, succeed, and move up the social ladder—through hard work, not your birth right or who your father is. Sure, there are many fortunate sons in the US, but they usually lose out to you and me, the disciplined, hardworking, smart people wanting more out of life. You are reading my missive because you know what I know: There is a fortune to be made from oil, and you want your cut. But you also know nothing comes easy. Saudi Arabia is the leader of OPEC and has been for years. The Saudi oil minister has come out and stated: “There is no reason for a change. Absolutely no reason.” He’s referring to the “perfect” price of US$100 per barrel for their oil. OPEC believes, and is correct to believe, that the global economy has accepted that US$100 per barrel. That’s what OPEC members need to prevent any further uprising and to stay in power. But the Americans haven’t been twiddling their thumbs… Unlocking the American Dream There is a lot America can do with US$100 oil, because that price suddenly makes alternative oil extraction methods economical and opens up brand-new avenues for profit. The next big thing in shale, for example. There is an onshore oil and gas basin in North America that is about to turn the oil and gas world upside down. This isn’t some maverick junior explorer’s pipedream. In fact, it’s taking the industry insiders by storm. They’re pulling out their checkbooks to play, and so are we. Last month, we took profits on a stock in our premium alert service, the Casey Energy Confidential, that—if you had invested in the open market according to our recommendation—would have given you +400% gains at current prices. And this is just early days in one of North America’s best shale oil and gas formations. In fact, just this past week, management of one of the largest pure gas producers came out on their investor conference call saying their results were almost 300% better than they anticipated. Insiders in the oil patch already label the potential of this shale formation as world class. Profit from the Oil Cartel I learned long ago that investing in the oil sector, “You can either be a contrarian or a victim,” as my friend Rick Rule likes to say. If you’re the average American hoping for OPEC to rescue you, you will suffer from US$100 oil. But if you’re reading my missive, I know you’re not the average American. You’re smarter—and you know there is a windfall profit to be made from this situation. Play to win and try out the Casey Energy Confidential. This unique email alert service has no fixed publishing schedule. Alerts and special reports are issued when the most profitable and unusual early-stage energy opportunities present themselves—such as the special report I am putting together about the world-class shale formation I mentioned earlier. This is the first time in over a year that we opened up the Casey Energy Confidential to new subscribers. The stocks we recommend in it are often micro-cap and so thinly traded that we have to limit membership in the service to a few hundred to avoid excessive buying or selling that would itself affect the stock price. How is my track record so far in 2014?last_img read more

A pioneering programme backed by £5 million of lot

first_imgA pioneering programme backed by £5 million of lottery cash has issued a call for user-led teams across the UK to apply for funding to research new ways to remove the barriers to independent living faced by disabled people.The Disability Research on Independent Living and Learning (DRILL) programme is believed to be the world’s first major research programme led by disabled people, and should fund about 40 pieces of research and pilot projects over the next four years.The aim is to build “robust” evidence on how to influence both policy and practice on independent living, and how to remove the barriers of attitude, environment, organisation, communication and finance that disabled people face.The programme aims to “change the way research is done so that researchers and disabled people work together as partners”.A series of 19 roadshows across England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales helped to decide on the programme’s four project themes: participating in the economy, participating in community and social life, participating in civic and public life, and participating “fully and equally in anything and everything”.Some of the issues raised in the roadshows about the barriers to participating in the economy included how to address the employment gap between disabled and non-disabled people; how schools, colleges and universities could be made more inclusive; and what could be done to address disability poverty by both increasing disabled people’s income, and reducing their extra costs.On community and social life, priorities included how to prevent social isolation; how organisations in local communities could be made fully inclusive; and how to stop disability hate crime.On participating in civic and public life, key issues raised included how to increase the number of disabled people in elected office; how disabled people can influence party manifestos and government policies; and how to change the media’s frequent portrayal of disabled people as “scrounger, tragic victim or heroic survivor”.The first opportunity to bid for funding opened this week, with a closing date of 27 July, with subsequent funding rounds opening in early 2017, 2018 and 2019.The programme is funded by the Big Lottery Fund, and will be delivered by the disabled people’s organisations Disability Rights UK, Disability Action Northern Ireland, Inclusion Scotland and Disability Wales.Organisations can apply for grants of up to £150,000, with proposals initially assessed by a national advisory group – England’s group is chaired by disabled BBC presenter Peter White – before the programme’s central research committee of disabled people, academics and policy experts makes a final decision on funding.Rhian Davies (pictured), chief executive of Disability Wales, said: “Our aim is to produce new evidence on what would support disabled people to access their right to independent living and take full part in society.“The programme includes potential for pilot projects to test the evidence in practice and find out what will make a real difference to the quality of disabled people’s lives. We’re looking forward to receiving some exciting proposals.”Liz Sayce, chief executive of Disability Rights UK, said that disabled people would be “in the lead, setting the priorities and co-designing the projects.”The disabled academic Dr Tom Shakespeare, chair of DRILL’s central research committee, said: “The starting gun has been fired on a very exciting competitive research process.“We are looking for teams that have great ideas, true partnership between researchers and disabled people, and with real chance of improving the lives of disabled people.“This is the first round of a five-year funding programme that will change disabled people’s lives for the better.”last_img read more

The public relations PR sector needs to confront

first_imgThe public relations (PR) sector needs to confront its failings over the employment of disabled people, according to new research by an industry insider.One UK PR company with more than 300 employees has admitted that it does not have a single disabled member of staff, while the latest industry survey found just two per cent of people who work in PR said they were disabled.The research has been carried out by Ashley Phillips (pictured), who herself has an invisible impairment and worked in PR in the USA and the UK for nearly five years before beginning a masters degree in public relations and advertising at Richmond University.She decided to write about disability in PR for her dissertation, after becoming increasingly concerned about how few disabled people were employed by the industry.She told Disability News Service that she had never seen a single person with a visible impairment among the hundreds of professionals she had come across in her five years working in PR.Phillips, who has type one diabetes, said the only person she met in those five years who said they had an impairment was another woman with diabetes who she had seen using an insulin pump.Of about 83,000 people employed in the industry in 2016, just two per cent – less than 1,700 people – said they were disabled, according to the PR Census 2016 carried out by the Public Relations and Communications Association (PRCA).As recently as 2013, PRCA’s census did not even mention disability or disabled people.And when Phillips approached some of the best-known PR companies in the UK about her research, only one was willing to tell her how many disabled people it employed.She was told by this company that, of more than 300 employees, not one of them was a disabled person.She was told: “This is something we are looking into. It is a problem.”Phillips said she realised there probably were some disabled people who worked at this company but that they were just not willing to disclose their status to their employer.She said she hoped her research would “open the conversation” on disability within the industry.She said she did not believe she had faced discrimination in the industry but believed there was “a lot of misunderstanding”.She said: “I think disability is considered a large taboo and people don’t know how to handle it, so they don’t.“I haven’t looked into other industries but I do feel [members of the PR industry] are behind in regards to how the world is moving.”When she first met her soon-to-be husband (she is getting married next month), when she told him she worked in PR, he replied, “Oh, you’re one of those.”She said: “This was the first encounter I had of specific stigmas associated with PR – that often everyone in the industry was a considered to be a typical Sex And The City Samantha Jones.“However, that conversation opened my eyes to noticing who my colleges were on a day-to-day basis – mostly young, white, middle-to-upper class and predominantly female.”She added: “This is not 100 per cent of the industry, they are opening diversity efforts, but everybody strives to be that perfect person and that ideal industry figure.”She said she believed that those at chief executive level were showing a “blatant disregard” for the issue, while executives at lower levels were guilty of “a lack of understanding”.She added: “From access to awareness, the industry can make many changes to recruit the nearly untouched pool of potential talent.“By spreading awareness of the lack of disability inclusivity in PR I hope to open the conversation and help make people with disabilities an inclusive part of the industry.”When contacted about Phillips’ research, PRCA accepted that there was “a general lack of understanding of disability in the industry”, but pointed out that the 2016 census also revealed that 78 per cent of all respondents suggested there were no significant obstacles to their organisation employing disabled people.Matt Cartmell, PRCA’s communications, marketing and events director, said: “The small numbers of disabled people in the PR and communications industry is certainly a concern but it may have to do more with a lack of understanding of what disability is and the stigma surrounding disability than employers not accommodating employees with disability.”He said a PRCA survey had revealed in May that nearly three-fifths of PR and communications professionals had experienced mental ill-health, while a slightly higher proportion had never spoken to their manager about their mental health.He said there was often a limited understanding of mental ill-health, which was “concerning because the industry itself is fast-paced and the ‘always on’ mentality means that employees can suffer from anxiety disorders, stress, or the workplace can exacerbate existing mental health conditions such as depression”.Cartmell said: “The industry isn’t necessarily behind society on the issue of disability.“While the stigma surrounding disability certainly exists and the industry has struggled with hiring more diverse candidates, there are several examples of organisations that are making employee wellbeing and diversity the key focus of their business.“The industry is increasingly aware that there is a strong moral and business case for increasing diversity in the workplace and accommodating employees with disabilities. “PRCA is committed to raising awareness about disability, diversity, and mental ill health and we have found that a lot of PR and communications practitioners are engaged in this debate.”He added: “We have seen that a lot of members and organisations in the wider industry are introducing unconscious bias training in their recruitment practices.“More importantly, we have seen that organisations are talking about disability and implementing policies to accommodate disabled employees.”last_img read more

Geek Builds His Own iPhone Using Chinese Market Parts

first_img You really can build your own iPhone with a little patience and a trip to Shenzhen, China. Add to Queue –shares Next Article Geek Builds His Own iPhone Using Chinese Market Parts 2 min read Learn from renowned serial entrepreneur David Meltzer how to find your frequency in order to stand out from your competitors and build a brand that is authentic, lasting and impactful. To the majority of consumers, smartphones are a closed box. You switch them on, charge them, use them, charge them again and keep doing that until the urge to upgrade takes over. If they break, you take them in for repair (or use that as an excuse to upgrade). We never look inside, in fact, regular teardowns of smartphones reveal how difficult even opening them can be.Scotty Allen is a geek, and one who spends a fair amount of time in China. When in Shenzhen, he couldn’t fail to notice the abundance of cell phone parts available to buy at the markets of Huaqiangbei. And of course, that led Scotty to wonder if he could make his own iPhone. Rather than leaving the question unanswered, he decided to find out. The answer, as the fascinating video below reveals, is “yes, you can.”There are a few gotchas, though. As with any electronics project such as this, you need patience, knowledge, help and the availability of parts. Scotty had all of these, but there was still quite a bit of frustration and a few months of work interspersed with head scratching. But he got there in the end, even managing to find an original box and all the accessories that come with an official iPhone 6s.What’s clear from his experiment is, not only is making an iPhone possible, it can be done using recycled parts. Very few of the components inside long-discarded iPhones go to waste. Rather than in landfill, they end up back on the markets, sold as part and typically in bulk. Even broken parts get fixed, as Scotty’s attempts to get a working logic board revealed.If you’re wondering why Scotty didn’t attempt to build an iPhone 7, the answer is simple. The markets in China rely on recycled/broken phone parts, and with the iPhone 7 being relatively new such parts are quite scarce. Older iPhone parts, however, are abundant due in no small part to the constant upgrade cycle consumers are locked into.

Apple Discusses Spectre and Meltdown Fixes on iOS MacOS

first_imgApple Apple Discusses ‘Spectre’ and ‘Meltdown’ Fixes on iOS, MacOS Apply Now » Add to Queue –shares Richard Lawler The recently disclosed bugs that affect so many modern CPUs are an issue on Apple platforms as well, and last night the company explained how it’s dealing with them.In a new support page, Apple confirmed it has included “mitigations” for Meltdown in iOS 11.2, macOS 10.13.2 and tvOS 11.2, while watchOS is unaffected. The other exploit, Spectre, it will address in a few days with an update to the Safari browser on macOS and iOS, with other fixes to follow.According to Apple, its Meltdown updates have resulted in “no measurable reduction” in performance. As far as its still-unreleased Safari tweak, the company says that on Speedometer and ARES-6 benchmarks there’s no noticeable change in performance and a hit of less than 2.5 percent on the JetStream browser benchmark. The only list that measures privately-held company performance across multiple dimensions—not just revenue. 1 min read January 5, 2018 2019 Entrepreneur 360 List This story originally appeared on Engadget The Safari browser is also getting an update.

After a few years of hard work, Grinnell, Devlin and their other co-founder Ravi Patel launched This Bar Saves Lives in 2013 with the intention of making a delicious, all-natural granola bar that under the one-for-one model helps alleviate hunger. For every granola bar sold, their non-profit partners Edesia Global Nutrition Solutions and Save The Children help produce and deliver a packet of life-saving food to a child in need.One moment in time: The young company’s first shipment of food aid went out in January of this year to the Philippines following the deadly typhoon that swept through. This Bar Saves Lives was able to send 45,000 packets of Plumpy’Nut, which the company says is enough to save the lives of 300 children.“None of us had ever made granola bars or run a food company before,” Devlin says. “[But this] is what keeps us motivated to keep landing partners big and small to sell our bars.”Related: B-Corporations Do Good Business4.

In 2007 she created the Akola Project — a jewelry-and-accessories brand that is handcrafted by, and fully benefits marginalized women and their communities. Since launch, Underwood says the Akola Project has built two vocational training centers, drilled 23 water wells, employed more than 200 women (who in turn have started up 63 of their own businesses) and impacted the lives of at least 1,400 children. Currently, Akola Project jewelry is sold in some 250 boutiques in the U.S.“These women had the vision, but not the income,” Underwood says. “So we launched the Akola Project because by employing [these] women and giving them a reliable income, we could care for thousands of children.”Next move: In 2014, the Akola Project is expanding to Dallas, Texas, where it plans to provide an economic alternative to sexually trafficked women by employing them to do the finishing work on products made in Uganda.5.

The women are trained and employed to knit scarves, which are sold in the U.S. The group has grown from three women to 30 — and fashionABLE has expanded its operations to work with a leather factory that employs 60 women.Related: Eco-Friendly Brand Gives At-Risk Women the Power of Design3.

Keith says that “embedded in the DNA of the company” is the idea that by employing and training these women in a new trade, in this case sewing, they will be equipped for long-term economic opportunities. The final product is shipped back to the U.S. where it is sold, and proceeds from these sales are then put back toward the sewing centers.Biggest challenge: What started as a small non-profit with just six women, has grown into a for-profit venture with more than 150 employees. Keith says the biggest challenge has been taking a complex, heavy issue and making it palatable and easy for the consumer to grab onto.“If [human trafficking] is going to be quelled in our lifetime, which I think it can be, it has to be done through a sound business that will bring sustainability and dignity,” Keith says.
