Previous Article Next Article Trust welcomes chance to address stress issuesOn 19 Aug 2003 in Personnel Today The head of HR at an NHS trust, ordered to improve the way it deals withstress by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), has welcomed the intervention.Robert Pascall, HR director at West Dorset Hospitals NHS Trust, believes theHSE will help it to continue to improve its working environment for allemployees. It is the first time the HSE has started enforcement proceedings against alarge employer over the issue of stress, and follows a complaint by a formermember of staff over alleged bullying and a long-hours culture. The HSE issued an improvement notice under the Health and Safety at WorkAct, giving the trust until 15 December to put in place measures to identify –and where necessary address – employee stress, or face potentially unlimitedfines. The trust is to use the HSE’s draft stress management standards to addressconcerns raised by the complaint. It will carry out a risk assessment, including establishing a staff surveyto identify how staff feel about their jobs and working environment. Pascall said: “We need to establish the extent to which employeesperceive there is a problem and, if there is, the factors that cause it and anypatterns of concern. If there are concerns about these issues [bullying or longhours], we will deal with them. He added: “It is only by going through this process that we will beable to identify and address any problems. If [for example] there is a need forbetter training for managers, we will look at that.”

Fans of LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy will recall his recent proposal to convert the turnstiles at subway platforms into musical instruments. While the “Subway Symphony” proposal was ultimately rejected by the MTA (they didn’t want to risk closing down subway stations for an art project, which does seem fair), it has found new life in NYC’s newest park, The Lowline.Situated in the Lower East Side, the Lowline is a work in progress but remains open to the public. One of the park’s newest exhibitions is the musical turnstiles, complete with composed sounds that will create a symphony of sorts as patrons enter the park.You can watch LCD’s Nancy Whang narrate a short promotional film about the turnstiles below.
Sunsquabi, the cosmic Denver-based trio that meshes elements of jam and electronic music, has released a new single, “Chrysalis”, in anticipation of their forthcoming studio album. “Chrysalis” is the second stage in a three-part Metamorphosis series, originating with the tune “Caterpillar”. During the band’s songwriting process, the three musicians focused in on biology and evolution as overlying themes for inspiration during their writing process. Sunsquabi’s approach to writing music and recording has changed recently with the addition of Josh Fairman (bass/synth) into the band, and the metamorphosis between “Caterpillar”, “Chrysalis”, and “Night Moth” are symbolic of the trio’s change.Bassist Josh Fairman commented, “Capturing the live element in the studio is really something we have been focusing on and we feel like this is the best representation of the band to date.” Guitarist Kevin Donohue added, “The metamorphosis becomes more evident as these stages are revealed. It’s been a really fun process to work on.”Drummer Chris Anderson noted, regarding his brother joining as a special guest, “This one was memorable for me. We flew my brother Spencer Anderson out to record violin on Chrysalis. You can usually find him on stage with his orchestra at Skidmore College, but this time we wanted to explore strings in the context of SunSquabi tunes. Collaborating with family is so special.”Stay tuned for a release of the band’s final stage of metamorphosis, “Night Moth”, and keep your eyes and ears open for an upcoming release date for Sunsquabi’s forthcoming studio album.Listen to “Chrysalis”, which was premiered by Jambase, below.For more information on tour dates and tickets head to the band website.Sunsquabi Upcoming Tour DatesSep-15 Denver, CO GrandoozySep-20 – 22nd Thornville, OH ResonanceOct-4 Kansas City, MO Crossroads KC w/ Umphrey’s McGeeOct-5 Madison, WI Orpheum TheatreOct-6 Chicago, IL ConcordOct-12 Santa Fe, NM Meow WolfOct-13 Durango, CO New AnimasOct-14 Phoenix, AZ Crescent BallroomOct-18 Houston, TX Last Concert CafeOct-19 Dallas, TX Deep Ellum Art CoOct-20 Austin, TX MohawkOct-25 Baton Rouge, LA Varsity TheatreOct-26 Birmingham, AL ZydecoOct-28 Live Oak, FL HulaweenOct-31Charleston, SC Pour HouseNov-1 Greenville, SC The FirmamentNov-2 Asheville, NC Asheville Music HallNov-3 Richmond, VA BroadberryNov-8 Fayetteville, AR George’sNov-9 Tulsa, OK IDL BallroomNov-10 Lincoln, NE Bourbon TheatreView All Tour Dates
PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) — A prominent Pakistani rights activist living in exile says her father was arrested in the northwestern city of Peshawar after a court denied him bail on charges of terror financing and sedition. Gulalai Ismail tweeted that her father, Mohammad Ismail, was arrested on Wednesday. The father is wanted in a long-standing case that also charges his wife and daughter since 2019, when Gulalai Ismail fled to the U.S. to avoid harassment by Pakistani security agencies because of her investigations into alleged human rights abuses by soldiers. Pakistani activists and journalists have increasingly come under attack by the government and the security establishments, restricting the space for criticism and dissent.
Mesina and Yancy worked with the South Bend Center for the Homeless during the Fall 2009 semester in a public communication class. “I owe a great deal to Claire for envisioning this project,” Mesina said. “It was her idea and form there, we’ve really made it blossom. We still have a long way to go, though, and a huge responsibility to the Center.” “Next year, we will meet once a week for an hour to discuss topics such as family relationships, women’s history and body image,” Mesina said. “We’ve been meeting with a focus group, staff and professors and students at Saint Mary’s College to ensure that we’ve done the proper research to run a program like this.” The two are entered in the National Association of Broadcasters Education Foundation’s (NABEF) Collegiate Call to Service. Mesina and Yancy make up one of seven teams declared finalists for the prizes. Combining their knowledge of communication and their desire to serve, Saint Mary’s juniors Katrina Mesina and Claire Yancy are competing in a contest to win scholarships as well as a matching donation to an organization of their choice. The two have created a program for the Center called “One Hour.” The program was designed to allow women at the Center to practice public speaking skills, as well as to bond and create confidence. In order to win the scholarship and donation, Mesina said the two have to write a blog about their project with the Center. They were responsible to blog about 45 days of service. “Our professor, Terri Russ, heard about the scholarship and really encouraged us to do it,” Mesina said. “We were a little uneasy about it because we felt that we might not fit into the criteria for the competition, but one short phone call to NABEF ensured that we should apply.” “They will be judging based on our efforts to help our community. In addition, they are judging our creativity and use of media in our blogging,” Mesina said.Mesina said she and Yancy worked together, though she credits the basic idea for the project to Yancy. “I love working at the Center,” she said. “It’s very easy to lose yourself in activities and school, but giving back to the community should always be a priority. The people at the Center are there because they want to make their lives better. It takes courage to want that for yourself and to work for it. It is an honor to be a part of their journey.” Mesina said she enjoys working at the Center.
By Bodie V. PennisiUniversity of GeorgiaOver the holidays, many potted plants find their way into ourhomes. Whether they’re thoughtful gifts or you bought themyourself, they can brighten your home as little else can do untiltheir blooms fade and fall.Even after the blooms are gone, though, you can still enjoyholiday potted plants. You can bring back their special beautyyear after year.Amaryllis, for instance, is afavorite that provides strikingly beautiful winter blooms. Whenall of its blooms have faded, cut the bloom stalk off near thesoil surface. Sometimes a bulb will send up a second stalk inJanuary if it’s vigorous you keep the plant in strong light.Whenever the blooms are gone, allow the leaves to remain on theplant. Keep it in a sunny window until May and then plant itoutdoors for the summer. Next September, dig up the bulb, cut offthe foliage and keep it dry until November. Then repot the bulbto enjoy its winter blooms again.Christmas cactus, too, is one ofthe world’s most widely cultivated and enjoyed groups of cacti.These plants have been extensively hybridized to flower in arange of colors, including magenta, white, pink, salmon andorange.Keep these plants in bright light after the blooms are gone.Water them only when a finger thrust into the soil comes up dry.Overwatering can lead to root rot.Feed your Christmas cactus lightly in the winter. It will needmore nutrients when spring comes and you hang them back outdoors.Here are some tips on caring for other holiday favorites:Gloxinia. Treat these plants asyou do African violets. Avoid high-intensity, direct sunlight.Water them from the saucer with warm water (at least 70 degreesFahrenheit). Keep the soil moist but not waterlogged. And avoidcold or hot drafts.Kalanchoe. This is perhaps themost durable of the red-flowering potted plants available in thewinter holidays. It will be happy when it’s warm and dry. Keepingit too dry, however, will shorten the life of its flowers.Begonia. Rieger begonias look alot like the garden tuberous and “Nonstop” begonias. Riegers arerelatively tolerant of sun exposure and temperature and prefer aslightly moist medium.(Bodie Pennisi is a Cooperative Extension horticulturist withthe University of Georgia College of Agricultural andEnvironmental Sciences.)
