Client-facing staff are thought to be safe for the time being.The news comes less than a month after RBS?announced that up to 3,500 support staff jobs will go from its consumer banking arm. Those jobs losses were described by Unite, which represents staff at the bank as “horrific”. National officer Rob MacGregor said it would be particularly difficult for staff to accept as RBS had decided to move some of the jobs abroad.At the time he said: “Just three weeks ago staff were boosted to hear of the £1.1bn half year profit yet today thousands of them are told that they have no future at the bank. Unite is appalled that this 84 per cent taxpayer-supported institution has since 2009 – under the banner of a strategic review – cut 21,500 staff.”Just three months earlier RBS announced redundancies among back-office staff in its wealth management division which includes Coutts, the bankers to the Queen, and Adam & Co. In May it said 2,600 positions would go at its insurance and retail banking arms. An RBS spokesman said: “We continue to make efficiencies across our business to ensure that we have the right people and resources in place to meet our client needs. We will do all we can to support our staff, offer redeployment opportunities wherever possible and keep compulsory redundancies to an absolute minimum.” last_img read more

Ireland: Five things we learned v Wales

first_imgDUBLIN, IRELAND – FEBRUARY 08: Jonathan Sexton of Ireland takes on fluid as the national anthems are played during the RBS Six Nations match between Ireland and Wales at the Aviva Stadium on February 8, 2014 in Dublin, Ireland. (Photo by Michael Steele/Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Yet what the Irish lacked in size they more than made up for in technique, bravery and game sense. Defensively O’Driscoll was outstanding and rather than run straight at the Welsh defensive line, he looked for offloads and space in behind to turn and tire them out. Schmidt’s decision to play D’Arcy was vindicated with both of them putting in a huge defensive display in the midfield. They tackled low but also worked in tandem to quickly contest the breakdown when the other had made the tackle. That’s what 206 appearances combined in an Ireland shirt gives you.One team: Ireland have left their provincial rivalry at homeFour becoming oneSince the Grand Slam year of 2009, the question has always been asked about why the national side could not replicate the success of the provinces? There was concern from some factions that with Schmidt having coached Leinster previously that his former charges would be given preference, with Munster and Ulster fighting it out to fill the gaps. But Schmidt isn’t interested in provincial pettiness, the only thing he cares about is winning.He’s brought all the provinces together and, judging by what  O’Connell says, they are sharing their provincial secrets for the greater good, hence the incredible drive for the line yesterday which allowed Chris Henry to score his first International try at senior level. Across the pitch, Ireland won every one-on-one battle and yet still played as a collective. Once again the bench moved seamlessly onto the pitch and the fact that the coaches were able to take O’Connell off with twenty minutes still on the clock shows how comfortable they felt and confident in the ability of the replacements.Discipline and composure rewardedWales committed a vast number of mistakes and Ireland made the most of the resulting penalties. Technically speaking they are referred to as ‘unforced errors’ but really it was the physicality in the tackle and the lack of continuity from Wales which led to frustration on their part. The Welsh were isolated in phase play which led to penalties for holding on in attack and then they were desperate to get the ball back quickly and, as a result, lost composure in defence. This wasn’t a rip-roaring mauling of Wales fuelled by emotion and a sense of revenge, more an intelligent annihilation of a top opponent – showing that Ireland have much more to offer than ‘heart’ and at only five games in, this is only the beginning from Mr Schmidt. Kicking clever: Sexton gave a kicking masterclass in Dublin on Saturday and kept Wales’ defence guessingBy Claire Glancy It’s time to expect the unexpected from IrelandWho in their right mind could have predicted that part of Joe Schmidt’s game plan would be to attack Wales’ back three? Surely, the way to win this match was to make sure the ball was nowhere in the vicinity of Leigh Halfpenny, George North or Alex Cuthbert, right? Erm, wrong.Jonathan Sexton gave a kicking masterclass, varying his tactics and keeping the Welsh defence guessing from the start. Ireland’s kick-chase was excellent and they competed in the air superbly, dominating territory. It showed they had learnt from the All Blacks defeat by playing the game in the right areas and not turning ball over in their own half. The fact Halfpenny only had one kick at goal the entire match highlighted the desire of the Irish to play in Welsh territory.In the wings: O’Mahony is Ireland’s captain-in-waitingYoung stars are becoming leadersPaul O’Connell signing for another two years with Ireland and Munster brought a collective sigh of relief. But when ‘The Freak’ (as Ronan O’Gara affectionately calls him) eventually does hang up his boots, Peter O’Mahony will be there to take the black armband. Watching him play, it’s hard to believe the Munster man is still only twenty-four years old.From the moment O’Mahony starts singing the national anthem until the final whistle is blown, he plays as if his life and country depend on his performance. Knowing the passion and commitment O’Mahony usually displays, this is what made the Australia performance in the autumn so hard to comprehend. Just like O’Connell, he energises his team-mates and manages to teeter on the edge of the disciplinary line without often crossing it.Irish brains beat Welsh brawnThe Welsh attacking game plan was reliant on their huge backs getting over the gain line and forcing Sexton into making lots of tackles. Ireland however were outstanding in defence and prevented Wales from getting quick ball by attacking them at the breakdown and subsequently starving the Jamie Roberts and co. of front foot ball. With George North playing the majority of the match at centre, it meant the record breaking Irish pairing of Brian O’Driscoll and Gordon D’Arcy came up short by 28 centimetres and 34 kilos between them.last_img read more

Pork Industry Makes Progress on Managing Antibiotics

first_img Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Pork industry adapts By Andy Eubank – Dec 25, 2018 SHARE SHAREcenter_img 2018 has been a year of change and adjustment for the pork industry when it comes to treating sick animals. FDA data shows the industry has made remarkable progress in adapting to new federal guiltiness. Last December the pork industry was gearing up for new FDA rules that went into effect on January 1 covering the use of antibiotics.Dr. Heather Fowler, Pork Checkoff Director of Producer and Public Health,  says the industry as whole and producers in particular have done an amazing job of complying with the new rules. “Producers understand the reason for and the important of the new regulations,” she stated. “Before their implementation, we launched an 18 month educational and informational campaign to make sure they understood the rules and were able to make adjustments to their operations.”The change was driven by new research on  antibiotic resistance and by a growing concern from consumers about the use of antibiotics in food production.  Dr. Fowler says pork producers share that concern and believe the changes they have made are good for people ad pigs, “Producers understand what is important for people, pigs, and planet. That means protecting the efficacy of antibiotics.” The new rules require veterinarian supervision and record keeping on the sale and use of antibiotics in pork production. Fowler said producers should be commended for the great work they have done in 2018.There remains a good deal of misinformation by consumers about the use of antibiotics in livestock, and product labeling that is misleading does not help the situation.

Phlunte’ Riddle Illuminates “The Dynamics Between Baby Boomers and Millennials In The Workplace”

Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. 14 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Community News More Cool Stuff Make a comment On May 17, 2013, Phlunte’ Riddle, the first African American woman to be promoted to lieutenant in the Pasadena Police Department, spoke at the University Club of Pasadena about her new career emphasis with Effective Consultants. Retiring after 28+ years of service, Phlunte’ Riddle has become a business consultant with a pioneering focus on changes in the dynamics of the new 21st century work environment. The key to such changes are the necessary shifts in the leadership approaches of Baby Boomers as they encounter the Millennials in the workplace. The question that Phlunte’ Riddle illuminated in her talk is “How are these two generations going to co-exist?” and what can they ultimately learn from one another.As the head of the University Club membership committee, James Harwood of Total HR Management helps to bring engaging speakers to club luncheons. Phlunte’ Riddle is a perfect example of one such speaker. Based in her relationship with her own children, Phlunte’ Riddle has expanded her personal experience with the Millennials in the workplace. Optimistic, educated and open-minded, the members of the Millennial generation are hot commodities on account of their technical savvy and skills. As Phlunte’ Riddle explained, “They sleep with their cell phones by their side, love technology, and instantly respond to emails and text messages.”Rather than being intimidated by such a tech-focused generation, the Baby Boomers should be aware of the Millennial generation’s “know thyself” emotional intelligence and apply it to the workplace. If these two disparate generations are going to the bridge the latest generation gap and work together productively, effective communication must be the number one priority. Taking it one step further, Phlunte’ Riddle outlined the leadership style preferences that Baby Boomer managers need to keep in mind when relating to Millennials in the workplace:The Leadership Style Preferences Of Millennials In The Workplace:1. Self-Awareness2. Self-Management3. Empathy4. Relationship ManagementUltimately, questions of technology and aptitude are not as important as recognizing each other’s basic human qualities. People matter and business never can and never should be just about widgets and statistics. With high expectations of themselves and their employers, Millennials are goal-oriented with a sense of immediate responsibility and the same go-for-it ambitions of the Baby Boomers. If Baby Boomer managers tap into these positive qualities, Millennials will help transform the workplace for the better, improving the quality of what is produced through a combination of technical savvy and a positive forthrightness.As a leader in human resources outsourcing and a professional employer organization (PEO), Total HR Management appreciates the workplace analysis provided by Phlunte’ Riddle in her talk at the University Club in Pasadena. Without question, the greatest human resource for any company are their employees. As a result, effective relationships between Millennials and their Baby Boomer managers are essential. After all, a happy employee means a productive employee who is working for the greater good of the company. By bridging the generation gap between Baby Boomers and Millennials, the positive qualities of both generations can be employed in tandem to optimize the workplace and help take a company to the next level of excellence.
