first_imgWoman lose out on achieving work-life balanceOn 10 Jun 2003 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Article Working women are still missing out on work-life balance because theycontinue to carry the main burden of domestic duties at home. New research from The Work Foundation, in association with Employers forWork-Life Balance (EfWLB), shows that, for many women, when one working dayfinishes, another begins at home. The Work Foundation report, About Time for Change, finds employers areresponding to the case for better work-life balance – three out of five peoplesay their employer would support all employees, with or without children, beingable to work flexibly. But, the report shows that within the home, women still shoulder the greatershare of domestic responsibility. They are more than three-and-a-half times more likely than men to reportthat they do most of the household tasks themselves, and over 12 times morelikely to report they do most of the childcare. However, the report, based on a survey of 500 respondents, shows coupleswhose salaries and career priorities were equally matched tended to sharedomestic responsibilities more evenly. Will Hutton, chief executive of The Work Foundation said: “This[work-life balance] is not just about civil society, individual sanity orallowing women to juggle their lives better. It is increasingly relevant toworkplace performance and productivity.” www.workfoundation.org.uk Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more

Model plasmasphere calculations for L-values near 2.5 at the longitude of Argentine Islands, Antarctica

May 9, 2021 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: egielqmer.

first_imgA model of the terrestrial plasmasphere that includes an eccentric dipole geomagnetic field has been developed. Calculations are carried out for tubes of plasma at the longitude of Argentine Islands, Antarctica (64°W). Results for L-values around 2.5 are compared with those obtained in VLF experiments at Faraday that detect whistler signals from NAA and NSS stations in the north east U.S.A. Calculated group delay and Doppler shift of whistler signals are analysed by the usual technique employed by experimenters at Faraday to deduce meridionalE×Bplasma drift and rate of change of plasma tube content (i.e. ionosphere-plasmasphere flux). The deduced drifts and fluxes are compared with those from the model.last_img

Motion banning student-staff relationships spreads across JCRs

May 3, 2021 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: egielqmer.

first_imgA motion banning relationshipsbetween staff members and any students over whom they have responsibility isbeing discussed in many JCRs. The motion states that such relationships “raiseissues, relating to inequalities of power in a relationship, or perceivedfavouritism, or the undermining of trust in the academic process” and urgesJCRs to appoint representatives to lobby their colleges for reform. The group’s chairwomen, Clara Riedenstein and Kemi Agunbiade told Cherwell that a ban would “protect both staff and students, ensuring the power dynamic that exists between them cannot be misused – as in these cases it can be difficult to distinguish consent and coercion”. St Peters, Lincoln, Magdalen and Balliol have all also been approached with this motion, although Balliol is not running JCR meetings at this time. It Happens Here, an Oxford SU group aiming to end sexual violence on university campuses, is encouraging this motion, telling students to “bring this motion to your JCR, to your JCR President or Gender / Women*s Representative to help spark this (long overdue) change”. This legislation does not apply to members of the Decanal Team due to Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights but members are urged to consider “potential conflicts of interest”. Some taken issue with the motion on this basis, seeing St Hugh’s definition of sexual harassment as too expansive. It includes “any sexually-orientated conduct, including “joking”, “banter” or innuendo” and “display of sexual materials, including on a computer screen, for reasons other than genuine academic endeavour”. The motion also urges colleges to set up a concrete policy banning relationships of this nature, outlining unacceptable behaviour and disciplinary action. It gestures to the St Hugh’s Policy on Prevention of Sexual Assault as an example which prohibits staff from “engaging in romantic or sexual relationships with students with whom they hold any such teaching, professional, or pastoral responsibility”. The University has been contacted for comment. Lady Margaret Hall’s JCR haspassed the motion this week while Regents Park’s JCR passed the motion withemendations, shifting from support for a ban to “a college-wide reform of thepolicies regarding romantic or sexual relationships between staff members andstudents with whom they hold any such teaching, professional, or pastoral responsibility”,as well as to appoint student representatives to “communicate and collaboratewith college to put in place a policy that will work for and benefit allparties”. The original motion aimed to appoint student representatives to“communicate” the request for a ban. This year, University College London became the first Russell Group university to ban intimate relationships between a staff member and a student over whom they have responsibility. In the US, all Ivy League universities have a ban on such relationships.last_img read more

’Fat tax’ idea dismissed by health and industry experts

April 21, 2021 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: egielqmer.

first_imgResearch published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health last week suggested that 3,200 lives per year could be saved if the government imposed a ’fat tax’.It called for VAT at 17.5% to be levied on certain foods. The report, backed up by research at Oxford and Nottingham Universities, included baked goods such as cakes and biscuits.The suggestion, which received wide media coverage on TV news bulletins and in the national press, was rebutted by many, including Maura Gillespie, head of policy and public affairs at the British Heart Foundation. She said that rather than concentrating on foods high in sugar, fat or salt, the government should focus its attention on encouraging the consumption of healthier foods.Gillespie added: “We also want manufacturers and retailers who have not already adopted the traffic light scheme to put colour-coded nutritional information on all their products.”Richard Dodd, spokesman for the British Retail Consortium, which represents the major supermarkets, said: “There is no such thing as unhealthy food but there can be an unhealthy diet.”Gill Brooks-Lonican, chief executive of the National Association of Master Bakers, said: “Cakes and biscuits are a treat and often contain ingredients that are good for you in moderation.”last_img read more

Myanmar’s Suu Kyi detained again — without her old support

February 8, 2021 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: egielqmer.

first_imgBANGKOK (AP) — A military coup in Myanmar has left the country’s elected civilian leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, back where she was just over a decade ago — under house arrest. But this time, her standoff with the military comes after she has sorely disappointed many once-staunch supporters around the world by cozying up to the country’s generals. Leaders in the West still denounce her detention, but they no longer view her as the paragon of democratic leadership. With her reputation abroad tarnished and the military firmly in power, it’s not clear who can lead Myanmar out of the wilderness.last_img
