Three underlings were left to defend Kraft’s behaviour during its £11.5bn hostile takeover last year. Kraft bosses told the business select committee that they couldn’t guarantee that manufacturing in the UK will stay in place after 2012. The firm was previously slammed by the committee and the Takeover Panel for announcing the closure of Somerdale factory near Bristol just days after the takeover was finalised.Marc Firestone, executive vice president at Kraft, said Rosenfeld was very interested in the hearings, though committee chairman Adrian Bailey MP said her no-show was “a slap in the face” for MPs and Cadbury’s 5,500 employees in the UK. Firestone admitted that he had no authority to shut down factories, when asked about his competence to answer the panel’s questions. The government is currently looking at introducing a “Cadbury law”?to protect UK companies from predatory takeovers. Tuesday 15 March 2011 8:27 pmlast_img read more

This OYO story takes you to Herent, where the extension of a private residence captures its surroundings. The inhabitants wanted an extension that was flexible enough to be transformed in time to a separate unite with its own bed- and bathroom. OYO emphasized the contrast between the new shape and the old volume, which used to be an post office. You can see the concrete floating above the garden. From the point of view of the residents, the extension creates exciting views from the new living room. The two volumes are connected with a light wooden footbridge that functions as entrance but also clarifies the different volumes.

Adam Knibb Architects were approached to design a contemporary house extension in Warsash. The clients were keen to cater for a very active lifestyle based near the waterfront and looked for an inventive solution to suit their needs; opening up the interiors and bringing the family together in the process. An open plan arrangement contains a new kitchen, along with an integrated breakfast bar, as well as a casual seating area that all benefit from long views out towards the garden. The ground floor of the extension remains well lit through a high provision of glazing: a large set of sliding doors along with carefully arranged rooflights. One roof light is formed by a window wrapping up and over the breakfast bar, creating a seamless link between indoor and outdoor spaces. The new proposal’s footprint does not extend beyond that of the existing conservatory in order to remain sympathetic in scale to the main dwelling.Save this picture!© Martin GardnerA new snug forms a small first floor area above the extension below. This is accessed by a bespoke spiral stair and looks out onto the garden via a dormer window that also allows the space to enjoy plenty of light. This first floor element has been designed and angled in a way that sympathises both with the existing dwelling’s gable end and the massing of the neighbouring properties to either side. Corten steel cladding provides an industrial aesthetic that references the maritime character of Warsash. Wrapping the material around the rear elevation offers a contemporary cladding option that mimics the tone of the existing brickwork whilst ensuring that the proposal is visually linked to the existing dwelling.Save this picture!© Martin GardnerSave this picture!Section AASave this picture!© Martin GardnerA sedum roof sits above the single storey element meaning that views from the existing first floor are not disturbed by a grey roof finish.

Go Panthers! TCU baseball finds their biggest fan just by saying hello Linkedin What to watch during quarantine + posts printA two-run eighth inning for Minnesota proved to be the difference maker in Friday’s ballgame as the Horned Frogs suffered their third consecutive loss, 6-3.The Golden Gophers broke the scoreless tie in the first inning due to two TCU errors as an RBI groundout from centerfielder Alex Bowell put Minnesota on the board.Minnesota doubled their lead in the second inning off a base hit from left fielder Ben Mezzenga. Minnesota was caught trying to extend the play and score from second base, but centerfielder Josh Watson threw out the runner at home.The Horned Frogs trimmed the deficit in half in the bottom of the second inning and tied the contest in the third inning. Designated hitter Johnny Rizer doubled to open the inning and advanced to third off a balk. Rizer scored on an error that, fielded successfully, would have ended the inning. The hit was Rizer’s first career hit.In the third inning, right fielder Connor Wanhanen scored off a base hit from first baseman Luken Baker to tie the game. Wanhanen recorded his sixth multi-hit game of the season and the 39th of his career.However, Minnesota needed little time to regain the lead as right fielder Toby Hanson knocked a lead-off home run in the fourth inning.The Horned Frogs were unable to keep the lead-off batter off base all night as Minnesota had the lead-off batter on base in eight of all nine innings Friday night. Minnesota scored in five of those eight innings.TCU would battle back in the seventh inning to tie the game. Shortstop Adam Oviedo began the inning with his second hit of the night and scored from third on a groundout from Coby Boulware. Oviedo notched his fourth multi-hit game of the young season.Minnesota had the lead once again in the eighth inning as two doubles and an infield single made it a 4-3 ballgame, and they would extend their lead to two with a bases-loaded sacrifice fly and add another run in the ninth for a three-run lead.Jared Janczak got the start on the mound Friday night for TCU but ended with a no-decision after allowing three runs on seven hits. Janczak recorded four strikeouts and surrendered two walks.TCU will return to Lupton Baseball Stadium Saturday for their second game of the weekend series against the Golden Gophers.

NFL’s first female referee: “Do what you love”

Posted on by

first_imgStudents adjust to Zoom classroom challenges printAdvertisement for the event hosting Sarah Thomas put on by Delta Gamma Leadership. Photo by Leslie FieldsPeople packed into the Brown Lupton University Union Ballroom Nov. 13 to hear an inspirational message from the NFL’s first full-time female official about overcoming hardships in her profession.Sarah Thomas became the NFL’s first female referee in 2015. Now, she is in her fifth season as an official, but being a woman in a male-dominated field comes with its battles. Thomas never was one to back down from a challenge, no matter what adversity she faced. She said her passion for sports led her to be the only girl on an all-boys basketball team. However, as she progressed through junior high, she was prevented from moving past the “B-team” due to her gender. “Too many times in our society, we think about why we cannot do things,” Thomas said. Lauren Julius, a sophomore business and graphic design major, said society’s expectations and stereotypes can hold back women.“Sometimes, everyone expects a woman to fail,” Julius said. “It can be really hard to break past the stereotypes and barriers that women have placed on them.” Photo of the large crowd listening to Sarah Thomas. Photo by Leslie FieldsEvery day, Thomas had to break various barriers and stereotypes placed on her. “When I was selected to be an official for the NFL, I saw my name on the roster as SB Thomas,” Thomas said. “It didn’t say anything about me being a woman. I want to be looked at as an official, not a female official.”Along the journey, Thomas learned to not look for recognition in the things that she does.“In society, a boss is always going to be looking for a title, but a leader is always going to be looking for the people,” Thomas said. “Do not try and prove people wrong and start believing in yourself and the recognition will come.”Josie Peterson, a business major, said she was inspired by how Thomas went for what she wanted with the right intention.“She did not do what she does for the recognition of being the first female referee. She just saw what she wanted and did not hold back,” Peterson said. Julius said she found Thomas’ humility interesting as well.“I thought it was interesting that she had this amazing role, but she did not care to brag about the fact that she was the first female official,” Julius said. Thomas said she stays away from seeking recognition by doing what she loves. “Do it because you love it,” Thomas said. “You ladies are just starting your journeys, start with doing what you love.” Leslie Fieldshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/leslie-fields/ ReddIt Facebook World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution The LEAP 10/22/20 Sarah Thomas speaks to college women about her journey to become the NFL’s first female official.

Rights organisations alarmed over threats to civil society after trip to UN

Posted on by

first_imgNews Read in arabic / بالعربيةInternational human rights organisations that participated in the UN Human Rights Council’s Universal Periodic Review (UPR) of Bahrain in Geneva in May Geneva are alarmed at threats made against Bahraini civil society members who were present. During the UPR, Bahrain’s human rights track record came under fire from numerous governments, prompting the threat of reprisals against those who had been in Geneva. Some of the civil society members are among those facing lengthy prison sentences for exercising their right to freedom of expression.Bahraini human rights defenders, activists, journalists, doctors and lawyers who participated in UPR side events about Bahrain with international organisations, were attacked by pro-government media in Bahrain, who referred to those who went to Geneva as “traitors” and called for action against them. During the UPR process, Minister of State for Human Rights Salah Bin Ali Mohamed Abdulrahman, who led the official government delegation, claimed that there are no political prisoners in Bahrain and all prisoners held in the country are being held for criminal activities. “Yet on that very day, our friend Nabeel Rajab was sitting in prison in Bahrain on various free expression-related charges, unable to travel to Geneva to participate in our event,” said Ghias Al-Jundi of PEN International, one of the organisers of a side event on 21 May. After Rajab was arrested in May, over 100 groups signed an appeal to free all detained human rights activists in Bahrain.After having been released from prison on bail on 28 May, Rajab was again detained on 6 June and ordered to be held for a week, pending investigation. “The judicial harassment against Nabeel Rajab shows that the crackdown against those who dare to denounce the human rights crisis in Bahrain is not over,” said Souhayr Belhassen, President of the International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH). Rajab is the President of the Bahrain Center for Human Rights (BCHR) and the Gulf Centre for Human Rights (GCHR), as well as FIDH Deputy Secretary General.On 21 May, Maryam Al-Khawaja of BCHR and GCHR told around 100 people in attendance at the side event that there were in fact more than 700 political prisoners in Bahrain, including Rajab and her father Abdulhadi Al-Khawaja, founder of both BCHR and GCHR. Al-Khawaja said that Rajab “was detained for a tweet and I would have had the same destiny had I been in Bahrain.”Rajab is at risk of being sentenced to prison for a number of charges, including “participation in an illegal gathering and calling for a march without prior notification” and “insulting an official authority over twitter.”At the event in Geneva, civil society members discussed the topic “In spite of the threats, Bahraini human rights defenders, journalists, netizens and doctors speak out against violations”. The event was co-organised by BCHR, GCHR, FIDH and PEN, as well as the Bahrain Rehabilitation and Anti Violence Organization (BRAVO), Cairo Institute for Human Rights Studies (CIHRS), the International Freedom of Expression Exchange (IFEX), Physicians for Human Rights (PHR) and Reporters Without Borders (RSF). Diplomats from Denmark, Norway, France, Holland, Greece and Finland attended the event.Among those threatened for participating in events in Geneva was Dr. Nada Dhaif, Chair of Bravo, who is also one of the doctors facing 15 years in prison for treating demonstrators and for speaking out about the deaths and injuries sustained by demonstrators during the protests in 2011. Dr Dhaif said she “was tortured for treating a wounded protester.” Her presentation is online here.”Dr. Dhaif, who was the only doctor not working at Salmaniya hospital, has been clearly targeted for doing an interview with BBC about the injuries and this case is about punishing those who dared to speak out,” said Maryam Al-Khawaja. The verdict in the appeal is due on 14 June. At the event in Geneva, journalist Lamees Dhaif talked about the risks of working as a journalist. She said, “Many journalists have been directly targeted for either reporting or approaching protesters to interview. Some journalists were targeted, tortured or sacked from their jobs for taking part in demonstrations.”“Contrary to what the Minister of State for Human Rights said, many foreign journalists have been denied access to Bahrain since the start of the street protests, especially during the Formula One Grand Prix in April,” Soazig Dollet of RSF said. “Others have been the target of physical attacks, arrest and deportation.”Richard Sollom of PHR pointed out that teargas has been used against demonstrators both in the streets and in their homes, including well-documented attacks on the homes of Rajab. “PHR has documented an unprecedented use of teargas being fired directly into homes,” said Sollom, who returned from an investigation in Bahrain in April.During the UPR Working Group Session for the adoption of the report on Bahrain on 25 May 2012, UN Human Rights Council President Laura Dupuy Lasserre expressed concern about “a media campaign which is taking place in (Bahrain), identifying and threatening representatives of civil society who came to Geneva to participate in this review.” She emphasised that governments have the obligation to protect the rights of their people and called for Bahrain’s government to commit to that.In the following days, the Bahraini Minister of Interior subsequently said “legal procedures” would take place against those who had travelled to Geneva, based on the statements they made about human rights violations by the government.The threats continue. On 3 June, one of the participants at the UPR in Geneva, lawyer Mohamed Al Tajer, was subjected to a smear campaign. A YouTube video was posted in Bahraini discussion forums showing Al Tajer and his wife in a compromising position. Even when the video was taken down, Bahrain forums.com published images. When Al Tajer was in jail last year, he was threatened by his interrogators that they would broadcast a film showing him with his wife.The newspaper financed by the royal court “Al Watan” continues its attacks, branding the activists as “traitors”, and Bahraini rights groups say that all pro-government newspapers have been participating in the attack against the UN Human Rights Council President.BCHR, GCHR, Bravo and the Bahrain Human Rights Society (BHRS) expressed concern about the threats to Al Tajer and others who travelled to Geneva in May. Others at risk for their participation in Geneva are Jalila Al Salman, Sayed Hadi Al Musawi, Faisal Hayat, Dr. Taha Al Derazi, Abdulnabi Alekri, Hassan Al Marzooq, Isa Al Ghayeb, Alaa Shehabi and Dr. Monther Alkhoor.

HIQA issues highly critical report on Nazareth House

Posted on by

first_img Twitter A HIQA report has found that the there were some deficits in the standard of cleanliness and hygiene at Nazareth House in Fahan.The report also found that there appeared to be no established procedure to enable early detection of influenza in the nursing home.The two inspections carried out by the Authority on 2, 3 and 4 April 2012 were triggered by a report of a significant number of resident deaths in the centre during March and April.Nine residents died during the period 22 March to 8th April.Seven of these deaths are currently classified as possibly consequent to an influenza related illness.The purpose of the inspection last month was to gather evidence on which to make judgments about the fitness of the registered provider and to report on the quality of the service.On day-two of the inspection there were 38 residents in the centre. One resident was in hospital.The report found that robust communication procedures were not in place. Senior management was not communicated with in a timely manner and there was a lack of clarity and accountability about how information on the outbreak had been reported.There was a lack of coordination of the information available where residents were diagnosed with a respiratory illness and were being cared for in the designated centre or in hospital. There was no system to alert professionals to the possibility of an influenza outbreak which created additional risk.It also found that while the Person in Charge was off duty due to medical advice from the public health team there was no designated person in charge.The report found there were deficits in aspects of infection prevention and practice and areas where supervision was required. Some areas did not have appropriate accessible supplies of products such as hand gels to assist in good infection control management and some equipment and areas of the premises were not in a satisfactorily clean condition.A number of polices were not comprehensive and did not provide sufficient guidance for staff. This included the infection control procedure and the emergency plan which required revision to include the arrangements in place to address an outbreak of infectious illness, the contingency measures to address staff shortfalls and the management of communication during a critical event.The report found there was insufficient staff or skill mix to meet the assessed needs of residents taking into account the declared dependency levels, clinical monitoring requirements, changing needs, the number of residents accommodated and the size and layout of the centre.
