Rugby Championship Australia v New Zealand live stream: How to watch the Tri-NationsNew Zealand have already secured the Bledisloe Cup for another year but can Australia salvage some pride in the final game of this year’s series in Brisbane?Round two of the Rugby Championship – or Tri-Nations as it’s known this year following South Africa’s withdrawal – sees the fourth and final meeting between the Wallabies and All Blacks of 2020 this Saturday (kick-off 8.45am UK & Ireland time).Since the 16-16 draw back in Wellington, the All Blacks have dominated this Bledisloe series, winning 27-7 at Eden Park and 43-5 in Sydney last weekend.Wallabies prop James Slipper will win his 100th cap in this match but there are fresh faces in both sides too.Dave Rennie has named another two debutants in his starting XV – back-rower Lachlan Swinton and winger Tom Wright – while prop Angus Bell could also win his first cap from the bench.With James O’Connor and Matt To’omua still injured and Noah Lolesio struggling on his debut last weekend, Rennie has picked Reece Hodge at fly-half – only the second time the 26-year-old has worn the No 10 jersey in his Test career.Ian Foster has changed more than half his team for this fixture in Queensland. The All Blacks have a debutant at blindside, too, in Akira Ioane, while the uncapped Asafo Aumua, Cullen Grace and Will Jordan are all named amongst the replacements.Beauden Barrett moves from full-back to fly-half, where he has former Hurricanes team-mates TJ Perenara and Ngani Laumape on either side, while his brother Jordie switches to No 15 from the wing.

Ukash offers online ‘change’ donation service to charities Tagged with: Digital AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Online cash payments company Ukash is to let consumers donate the spare ‘change’ from their online cash vouchers to charities.Ukash offers an alternative online payment service to credit and debit cards: it issues cash vouchers for consumers in the UK and 19 other European countries to spend online. There are around 40,000 payment/purchase terminals in the UK at grocery stores, petrol forecorts, newsagents, and other convenient locations. Single, uniquely numbered vouchers are worth up to £499.Ukash say that consumers don’t always spend the full value of the vouchers on shopping, communications, lifestyle and gaming websites, leaving ‘small change’ unused. It is this small change that Ukash aims to channel towards charities.

Receive email alerts to go further The Information Technologies Board (BTK) has modified its proposed Internet filtering system and postponed its introduction for further testing and in order to submit the new version to 10 days of public consultation.The BTK announced on its website on 4 August that it is postponing implementation of its directive on “Procedures and Principles regarding Safe Internet Use” from 22 August to 22 November.Under the modified system, Turkish Internet users will no longer be obliged to install the BTK filtering software on their computers and the number of alternative versions of the software has been reduced from four to two (“family” and “child”).The original version of the BTK directive was referred to the Council of State by the Turkish human rights website Bianet.org, which questioned its legality.Reporters Without Borders takes note of the BTK’s concessions but still thinks the directive should be abandoned altogether, as thousands of demonstrators demanded on 15 May in response to the BTK’s original version.——————————————————————————————–Second thoughts about Internet filtering?05.30.2011Reporters Without Borders notes that the Information Technologies Board (BTK), an offshoot of the prime minister’s office, organized a forum with civil society and Internet sector representatives on 25 May to discuss the Internet filtering system that the government plans to introduce on 22 August.“The initiative was laudable, but came too late,” the press freedom organization said.More that 50 representatives of civil society organizations and Internet sector companies, along with officials from the High Council for Telecommunications (TIB), took part in the forum, held on the campus of Istanbul’s Bilgi University. However, all the parties stuck to their positions and no agreement was reached.“The authorities finally seem ready to dialogue following all the opposition in Turkey and abroad to their Internet filtering project,” Reporters Without Borders said. “But no guarantee has been given that this outragous mechanism for Internet censorship is to be abandoned.”Websites that oppose the project meanwhile continue to be the target of cyber-attacks, as do left-wing and Kurdish sites. One of the latest victims was the daily Yüksekova Haber’s site, which experienced a DDoS attack on 20 May.————-Cyber-attacks on websites that backed protests against Internet censorship-18 May 2011Several websites that backed anti-censorship demonstrations held on 15 May have been intermittently inaccessible since then because of Distributed Denial of Service attacks. The targets include the site of the left-wing daily Birgün, the news site haber.sol.org.tr and the media freedom website Bianet.“We are going to carry on publishing under alternative addresses in case we should become the subject of similar attacks in the future,” Bianet announced today after being inaccessible for eight hours yesterday. “If this should occur, the alternative address will be published on Twitter and via other channels.”More than 10,000 people took part in the demonstrations against online censorship that were held in Istanbul and around 30 other Turkish cities on 15 May. They were protesting against changes to media and Internet censorship legislation, above all a provision that would make it obligatory to install online filtering software on all home computers. The measure is due to take effect on 22 August.Both the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe and the European Union have condemned the measure as an attack on freedom of expression and have asked Turkey not to implement it.“This regulation would limit the right of individuals to access information they want,” OSCE media freedom representative Dunja Mijatovic said yesterday. Natasha Butler, the spokesperson for the EU commissioner for enlargement, said the targets of any filtering measures should be selected carefully and should be “proportional.”Reporters Without Borders supports the OSCE and EU positions and urges the Turkish authorities to withdraw this measure. It also calls on them to end the censorship that is already arbitrarily affecting thousands of websites, and to start by amending Law 5651 on Internet crimes.——————Government agency wants to install filtering software on every computer6 May 2011Reporters Without Borders condemns a plan by the Information Technologies Board (BTK), an offshoot of the prime minister’s office, to force the Turkish public to submit to content filtering in order to gain access to the Internet.Under new regulations announced by the BTK on 22 February and due to take effect on 22 August, Internet users will have to choose between one of four Internet filtering options: family, children, domestic or standard. One of these filters will have to be installed on every computer for it to have online access. The list of websites blocked by each filter is classified.“The BTK is not fooling anyone when it claims to be rendering a service to Internet users by giving them a choice between a lot of restrictions and fewer restrictions,” Reporters Without Borders said. “This measure is a complete violation of both the European Convention on Human Right and Turkey’s own constitution. Everyone should be guaranteed unrestricted access to the Internet.”Shielding children from certain kinds of online content is perfectly legitimate but parents should be able to choose where or not they install a filter on a computer and should be able to turn it off when they want. Such a tool should under no circumstances be imposed on Internet users.This is yet another case of Turkish Internet users having to submit to an arbitrary decision by one of the many government agencies that regulate the Internet. Reporters Without Borders urges the BTK to follow the example set by the High Council for Telecommunications (TIB), which finally abandoned its plan to introduce keyword filtering. And it urges all the other entities that control telecommunications to stop trying to outdo each other with censorship measures that just undermine their credibility in the public’s eyes.Lawyers representing the Turkish human rights website Bianet.org have asked the Council of State to overturn the measure. Access to Bianet was blocked in many Internet cafés in June 2007 by filtering software using a blacklist compiled by government security officials. The blocking was finally lifted after Bianet approached the company that made the software.“But we don’t want to experience the same problem again as a result of new measures targeting independent, alternative or free initiatives,” Bianet editor in chief Erol Önderoglu said.Turkey is on the list of “countries under surveillance” in the latest version of the “Enemies of the Internet” report that Reporters Without Borders released on 11 March. More than 7,000 websites are currently blocked in Turkey, in most cases without reference to any court.

These vulture funds have nothing in mind except profit. They don’t care how long a farm, a pub or any other business has been in a family,” he said.Mr Sherlock, who was supported by hundreds of people from all over the country when he was served with an eviction notice by the Bank of Scotland, said he wants the courts to make it an obligation on lenders to bring in mediators before asking for an eviction order.“They are well able to afford to pay the top lawyers and barristers so they can well afford to pay for mediation. I believe that, in the majority of cases, a deal can be worked out that will allow people stay in their own homes”.And he appealed to people in trouble to “reach out.“Make contact with us, with a family member or a local priest to get advice. If people contact us, we can at least look at the situation and get help for them from somewhere, he explained.“Everyone thinks their debt situation is the worst. I have people ringing me all the time saying their situation is impossible but very often, things are not as bad as they think. People are lying awake at night trying to carry this on their own”.He also believes that the shame factor has to be taken out of the debt problem.“I tell people that they are not failures – it’s the system that has failed them,” he said.“The mental health problems that arise from the shame of being in debt are very serious. We have to start talking about this”.In a statement issued by the ICSA press office, Mr Sherlock called on financial institutions and vulture funds to “cease the draconian act of forced eviction.“The unfortunate scenes that unfolded at a Roscommon farmyard were reminiscent of something from the turn of the century. Nobody wants to see families being dragged and beaten out of their homes by security personnel.”“There has to be a better way. Dragging people out of their homes will not solve the problem only inflame an already highly charged situation,” he declared.“ICSA’s mantra has always been mediation not confrontation. Banks and vulture funds must sit down with families and explore every avenue to restructure the debt so that all parties can move forward with consensus and certainty.“ICSA is at the forefront of dealing with people in debt and have seen a sharp rise in the number of people seeking help with their efforts to restructure their debt issues with their lenders. Now however, our worst fear of a situation like in Roscommon has come true.“Violence at farm gates is not the answer; meditation is the only show in town and ICSA are here to assist farm families who are making a genuine effort to honour their commitments,” the ICSA statement concluded.

Previous Article Next Article HR: Positive Resignation – How to hand in your noticeShared from missc on 8 Jan 2015 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos. A question that all HR/recruitment professionals get asked on at least a semi regular basis is: “How should I resign?”. The real answer is, there is no textbook answer as there are so many variables and moving parts involved relevant to e.g. company, manager, your professional style etc. but there are definitely a whole lot of wrong ways to do it. Here’s my 4 small tips that hopefully will offer some piece of mind during what in most cases is an awkward conversation (at best), and help it flow with a little more ease and hopefully avoid friction or burned bridges.Tip 1: No matter how much you might feel like it, don’t use the flaws of the company/manager as your reason for leaving. This is not the time or the place to have this conversation. My advice would be that if there is a burning desire inside you to offer some constructive criticism, do so at an exit interview in a rational and balanced manner. Instead use the positive points of why you have chosen to accept the new role as the reason for your departure.Tip 2: I’m firmly of the belief that we never stop learning and thus regardless of if you feel it has been the most fulfilling role or not, think of the lessons you’ve learned and thank your manager/company for the opportunity to have learned and grown as a professional.Tip 3: Unless extenuating circumstances dictate otherwise, wherever possible be willing to work your full contractual notice period. Make arrangements as such so as to make your transition out of the company as smooth as possible.Tip 4: If not already part of process, offer your time to have an “exit meeting/interview” with your line manager with the aim of trying to shed light on where in your opinion, the organisation could improve. This is where you can offer your CONSTRUCTIVE feedback and show that you are not harbouring any ill feelings due to some negative experiences but instead are aiming to offer your opinion to ensure other employees don’t feel the same thing.These are by no means complicated steps and is relatively “back to basics” kind of stuff but I hope it will give some piece of mind to anyone who may be looking for a little direction on ways to part ways in a positive light.

Tracks made in minerals by the electronic stopping Of uranium fission fragments provide a modern geological dating tool, and are believed also to yield specific information on the low-temperature thermal history of rocks. Experimental work showing that the damaged crystal lattice along a fission track recovers primarily as a function of temperature ignored the fact that the basic theory of atomic diffusion requires an exponential decrease in the intrinsic diffusion coefficient with increasing pressure. Here, fission track recovery was experimentally investigated in basic apatite under the simultaneous influences of temperature, pressure and stress. We show that track facing is a complex recovery mechanism responding to several environmental physical parameters simultaneously. In particular a strong decrease in the track recovery rate was observed as a function of increasing pressure. And a nearly temperature-independent recovery was observed in samples Under stress.
First-time buyers are £742 a year better off than those who rent, according to a new study by Halifax.The annual figures from the Halifax are based on the average monthly buying cost (including mortgage payments) for a first-time-buyer purchasing a three-bedroom property at £6,582, £62 lower than the typical monthly rent – £7,203 annually – paid on the same property.The latest information reconfirms what many of us already know – buying property often makes sound financial sense. This will partly explains why the volume of homebuyers is increasing, with first-time buyer numbers up by an estimated 22 per cent in 2014 with 326,500 of them getting on the ladder, the highest annual total seen since 2007.However, the price difference between buying and renting is narrowing. The price of a typical first-time buyer home increased by 8 per cent in 2014, and although average monthly rents have risen by £28 over the same period, average monthly buying costs increased by £46. This means the difference has narrowed from £80 in 2013 to today’s figure of £62, but nonetheless, the saving is still clear.As an added bonus, buying is now more affordable in all regions in the UK, with purchasers in London being the most better off in cash terms, they save an average of £112 per month, or £1,338 per year, with the average monthly cost of buying – £1,275 – being substantially less than the amount paid by renters in the capital, with the average monthly rental price being £1,387.Craig McKinlay (left), Mortgage Director at Halifax, commented, “Average home buying costs are significantly lower than average rental costs, providing first-time buyers with a large financial saving if they can get on the housing ladder. While the timescales associated with raising a sufficient deposit to buy a home present a hurdle to many potential first-time buyers, the significant difference in costs between buying and renting, combined with still low mortgage rates, increased consumer confidence and the Help to Buy scheme, have all been factors driving the substantial rise in first-time buyers over the past two years.”Meanwhile, a separate report reveals that two thirds of tenants have had to dip into their own pockets to fund repairs because they could not wait for the landlord any longer.The study, conducted by PropertyLetByUs, reveals that 55 per cent of tenants spent up to £50 to sort out a repair and that half of tenants would like landlords to deal with repairs quicker.Two thirds of tenants say that it takes their landlord too long to respond to emails and calls about problems.The research also reveals that just a third of tenants would rather deal with a landlord than a letting agent and one in six tenants have experienced bad landlords in the past.“Our research shows that the most common cause of complaints are faulty boilers; leaking roofs; faulty showers; mould and condensation; leaking bathroom and window locks; broken windows; smoke alarms; and pests and vermin,” said Jane Morris (right), Managing Director of PropertyLetByUs.renting buying first_time_buyers February 24, 2015The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?
