I think it is a bit more than some businesses would want, but if youlook at it in the context of the economy at present it is affordable.”Ifat some stage there was a major economic downturn the increase in the minimumwage might cause problems, but in the current circumstances it looks like areasonable increase.”TheCBI, which had opposed any increase in the minimum wage, also gave its support.Director general Digby Jones said, “The Government has gone as far as itcan without moving to a point where the damage outweighs the benefits. It isgiving a pay rise of nearly 11 per cent to some 1.3 million low paid workers tohelp ensure the wage doesn’t wither on the vine.”Butsome business leaders have criticised the stop-go nature of the increases sincethe pay floor was introduced in 1999.”Thereis no doubt that this will have some impact on business survival andconsequently on jobs, particularly in the textiles, retail and social caresectors,” said Chris Humphries, director general of the British Chambersof Commerce.SharenPhillips, HR director at ESC UK, said, “Does the minimum wage have to riseso steeply and so frequently? Does the Government realise that it isjeopardising the future of small businesses that do not have the profit marginsto sustain such increases?”ByBen Willmott Comments are closed.

Changing face of FTSE 100 helps boost chief exec payOn 4 Sep 2001 in Personnel Today Chief executives of FTSE 100 companies received a massive 15 per cent payrise last year, according to research by PricewaterhouseCoopers. It shows that the salary of the typical chief executive or full-timechairman reached £539,000. Average remuneration rises to £781,000 when theaverage bonus of 40 per cent is included. The increase in median base pay is almost double the 8 per cent rise in2000. Report author David Atkins believes that the jump in salary is due to achange in the type of company in the FTSE 100. He said, “This year’s report contains only 80 of the companies whichwere in our 2000 analysis. Almost all the new economy companies have left theFTSE 100, to be replaced by old-economy companies such as Associated BritishFoods, Hanson, Safeway and Wm Morrison Supermarkets.” Atkins said the large number of mergers and acquisitions over the past year– BP and Amoco, CGU and Norwich Union, Glaxo Wellcome and SmithKline Beechamand Vodafone and Mannesmann – helped boost chief execs’ pay. He said, “It is not surprising that base salary increases to chiefexecutives are in double digits, reflecting the increased size of some companiesand the shortage of individuals with skill and experience to manage businessesthat increasingly are global.” Chief executive pay varies widely according to sector. In the consumer goodssector their median total earnings is more than £1m, but in utilities it is£597,000. Executive directors’ salaries rose by only 2 per cent. With the exception oftelecoms, the largest increases went to those in low-pay sectors, such asutilities, engineering and construction. www.monkspartnership.comBy Paul Nelson last_img read more

first_imgDefensive Stats:LB Jeremiah Ieremia: 6 tacklesDB Bryce Hampton: 1 INT September 14, 2019 /Sports News – Local Offense Nowhere to be Found, Badgers Lose to Lackawanna College 17-6 FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailEPHRAIM, Utah-Amid a shoddy offensive showing, Snow College suffered a disappointing 17-6 loss to Lackawanna (Pa.), 17-6.Badgers head coach Andrew Mitchell opted to go with redshirt freshman signal-caller Garrison Beech rather than usual starter, Braxton Kerr. On the Badgers’ second possession of the game, kicker Jose Pizano drilleed a 45-yard field goal for a 3-0 Snow lead.The Falcons’ pursuing drive was halted after defensive back Bujon Boyd broke up a pass on third down. The field goal attempt was fumbled and picked up by Badgers defensive back Alton Jones Jr. and returned to the Lackawanna 35-yard line. After going three-and-out, Snow relied on Pizano again, this time kicking a 44-yard field goal, extending the lead to 6-0.The Badgers’ defense stood strong, although Falcons quarterback Matt Cavallaro found a few of his receivers for big plays in the second quarter. Snow linebacker Owen Fa’amoe got to Cavallaro on third down forcing Lackawanna to settle with a field goal, cutting the lead in half 6-3.After exchanging drives, Snow College picked up a couple of first downs on the ground before Lackawanna defensive back DeJahn Warren intercepted Beech, squelching this possession.Starting at the 49-yard line, Beech handed the ball off to RB Shammah Luani for back-to-back first downs, earning their first trip of the game into the red zone. Lackawanna’s defense stood tall, forcing a fourth down. With 4.5 seconds left in the half and on the 1-yard line, Mitchell rolled the dice and kept the offense on the field. Beech, working from the option, took the ball himself but was brought down behind the line of scrimmage, sending both teams to the locker room with Snow leading 6-3 at the half.The second half was a completely different ballgame. Beech threw his second interception of the day, turning into the Falcons’ first touchdown of the game as Lackawanna took a 10-6 lead.The Badgers’ offensive output was their lowest since posting 6 points in a loss to Air Force Academy Preparatory in 1997.Up next for the Badgers is their Homecoming game in Ephraim Saturday September 21 against Iowa Centeral.

first_imgLet’s be honest, most people never venture further than Europe. When the cheap spirit of wanderlust awakens, a group trip (courtesy of Easyjet) to the sun-kissed regions of Spain soon cures the travel-bug. Often the holy trinity of boozy paradises – Majorca, Minorca and Malaga – in association with Club so and so, adequately nourish the Joepublic soul with the sublime necessities of sand, sea, sex and more sex. Meanwhile Africa merely registers as that place where Bob Geldof “did his bit for us, for those skinny kids”. Often the seasonal destination of many a “Hoorah Henry” and the hutbuilding wealthy Gap year student, “cos laahk yah know, I raahlly wanna help the children”, Africa remains distant and inaccessible to most. A continent that conjures up images of expense, famine, disease and poverty couldn’t really be a holiday destination for the masses, could it? Lonely Planet’s excellent new travel guide, Africa on a Shoestring aims to dispel the miasma of thought surrounding the continent. A mixture of social comment, history, practical information and observational humour, this sturdy tome is an invaluable guide for any budgetconscious traveller aiming to explore the impressive diversity of Africa. From the Roman and Pharaonic temples of the Maghreb (North Africa), to the spicy charm of the East, the platelicking cuisine of the West and right down to the jaw-droppingly inspiring natural sites of Southern Africa, any adventurer on a tight budget can experience the continent to its fullest, particularly students suffering from the monstrous after-effects of a student loan. The emphasis is on “shoestring” and so each page is conceived with this concern in mind; the helpful itineraries to plan budget backpacking around specific regions of Africa, from North to South, “the Maghreb Meander” to “French Footsteps”, must be looked at. With this endlessly useful one-stop reference guide, you can’t really go wrong. Lonely Planet adds yet another jewel to backpacking culture.ARCHIVE: 2nd week TT 2004last_img read more

Police seek information on early morning bottle assault at local barHoboken police detectives are looking for information regarding an assault in which victims were hit with a bottle in the early morning hours on Sunday, July 22, at 16 Hudson Place.According to a press release from the department, when Sgt. Charles Kucz, Detective Anthony Caruso, and the Hoboken Volunteer Ambulance arrived on the scene they were met by three victims who said they were assaulted as they were being escorted out of The Hub, a bar/restaurant. The press release did not specify whether the assault came from inside or outside.The first victim was struck with a bottle thrown in their direction, sustaining a cut to the back of the neck area and on top of the head.The second victim was struck with a fist above the left eye, causing pain and swelling. The final victim was also struck with a bottle and sustained injury to the upper lip causing pain and swelling.All the victims were treated on scene and refused further follow-up treatment.The alleged assailant is described as a Hispanic male with curly dark hair and a mustache. He was wearing a black Adidas brand jumpsuit with a white stripe on the back. The suspect was no longer on the scene and no arrest has been made. The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information as to what occurred is asked to call the Hoboken Police Department at (201) 420-2131 or email Lt. Edgardo Cruz at [email protected] All information will be kept confidential.center_img Midyear report shows decrease in local crimeCrime is down in Hoboken by 10 percent for the first six months of 2018, compared to the first half of 2017, according to a report released by the Hoboken Police Department.Crimes rates decreased in 10 out of 13 categories.Additionally, the rate at which the Hoboken Police Department has closed cases with an arrest is at 32.6 percent which is above the state average.“For context, anything above 20 percent is considered good police work,” said Chief Ken Ferrante in a press release. “I thank and commend our uniformed, investigative, and training bureaus and those bureaus’ commanders, supervisors, detectives, patrol officers, and civilian staffs for setting an example in New Jersey!”Hoboken’s closure rate exceeded the state average in six out of seven categories. The rate of robbery closures is 76.9 percent, far above the state average of 27.5 percent. The burglary closure rate is 49 percent, compared to that state average of 15.6 percent. 2018 Hudson River Cup and Polynesian Festival announcedOn Saturday, July 28 the Hoboken Cove Community Boathouse and Ke Aloha Outrigger will host the Hudson River Cup races and Polynesian Ohana Festival.Races include a five mile kayak into the NYC Harbor, and eight mile races to the Statue of Liberty, with races scheduled to start at 11:30 a.m. following registration.From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. the Polynesian Ohana Festival will include free kayaking from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., live music, hula dancing, food trucks, and family activities.For more information on the races or to register go to www.paddleguru.com/races/hudsonrivercup2018 ONE-ART ‘oooh Fashion!!’ announced for Aug. 4On Saturday, Aug 4 at 8 p.m. ONE ART – HOBOKEN will present its 10th installment, “oooh Fashion!!,” at Issyra Gallery, 300 Observer Hwy.The monthly music, poetry, and art series will feature music by local bands and poetry by local artists.

In the future, rather than raising the issue in a roundabout way with a press release, Mayor Bhalla invites the councilman to reach out to him directly,” Melli-Huber added.“We applaud Mayor Bhalla for setting a welcoming tone for the city of Hoboken and leading a number progressive initiatives to protect the LGBTQ community,” said Michael Billy, CEO of the Hudson Pride Center.

first_imgBy MADDY VITALE Chris Lambert, who owns four Atilis gyms, says he will be ready to reopen as soon as Gov. Phil Murphy gives the order – but not a moment sooner.His comments came two days after the franchise owners of the Atilis in Bellmawr chose to ignore Murphy’s order that deems gyms as non-essential businesses that are to remain closed for now amid the COVID-19 safety regulations and restrictions in place since March.Ian Smith and Frank Trumbetti are the owners of the Atilis location that violated the executive order of the governor. And while Lambert does not own the location, he is the franchisor“I financially back the gym, but I do not agree with them,” Lambert said of Smith and Trumbetti. “As a franchise owner, I will respect that they will do what they think is best. But in my opinion, it is not doing any good for all of the other New Jersey gym owners. It is causing conflict and setting the process back.”Lambert, a former Lower Township police officer, and his wife, Lesya, run successful Atilis gyms, priding themselves on providing to members an authentic, hardcore fitness center. Their locations in Ocean City, Sea Isle City, Wildwood and Egg Harbor Township have thousands of members.While the gyms are shuttered, the Lamberts and a group of other New Jersey gym owners have joined together to voice their opinions about how they believe the best and safest way to reopen would be and present it to the governor’s office.On Monday, in a teleconference with the governor’s staff, but not the governor, Lambert said the group put a proposal on the “virtual” table on how to reopen safely for the physical well being of the gym members.“Last week we spoke with Congressman Jeff Van Drew. Then on Monday, we all called in to a designated number where we spoke with the governor’s chief of staff and head of the coronavirus task force and other high-ranking members,” Lambert explained.Lambert believes the governor was not on the call because of the Bellmawr Atilis gym incident.“I believe he did not want to partake, in my opinion, due to the franchise situation in Bellmawr,” Lambert noted.Nevertheless, he said, the discussion was very positive between gym owners and the governor’s staff.“The governor’s office said it was a great proposal,” Lambert said, adding that he did not want to publicly share a copy of the group’s proposal since nothing is approved yet. He explained how the gym owners designed a way to safely reopen.“We feel confident, as a smaller business, that we could put in safety guidelines and control our membership base,” he said.Some of the ways Lambert and other gym owners believe they could and should be able to reopen is not only for fitness buffs and people who are health conscious, but because they can do so while limiting the number of people in and out of the businesses at any given time.“We, as a group, have shown how a gym is beneficial,” Lambert said. “If you are allowed to sell paint or gardening supplies or liquor, why can’t you open a gym?” He continued, “The governor is all about safety, and he should be. The problem we see right now is the amount of harm for so many people not coming to the gym.”Atilis Gym in Ocean City is located at 1214 West Ave.The Lamberts have not had too much down time, if any, despite the closures.Chris Lambert said he is in one of his four Atilis gyms each day gearing up for the eventual opening. Sanitizing all of his locations is a big priority of his, he stressed.“I am here every day, Monday through Sunday, at one of my locations working, remodeling, and cleaning,” Lambert said. “When the governor says we can open, we will be ready to go.”For gym locations and more information on Atilis Gym visit: www.atilisgym.com Lesya and Chris Lambert own four Atilis Gyms and they, along with other gym owners across the state, hope a proposal they presented to the governor’s office will allow their business to open again soon.last_img read more

first_imgTo ensure that public health interventions that can save lives and improve overall health actually reach people, epidemiologists must do two things. They must provide clear evidence of the need for such interventions. They must also convince policymakers to then take action on the evidence.This was the theme addressed at a symposium on “translational epidemiology” on February 20, 2013, hosted by the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) Department of Epidemiology.Speakers included Anna Giuliano, director of the Center for Infection Research in Cancer at the Moffitt Cancer Center in Florida, who spoke about the human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccine and the need to offer it to boys as well as girls; and Cesar Victora, emeritus professor of epidemiology, Federal University of Pelotas, Brazil, and president of the International Epidemiological Association, who discussed the importance of providing better nutrition to young children in low- and middle-income countries.In his opening remarks, HSPH epidemiology professor George Seage said members of HSPH’s Department of Epidemiology are increasingly focusing on translational work, which aims to apply research findings into real-world public health interventions. The challenge in many cases is to determine the most cost-effective approach to scaling up interventions, and how to best design studies to measure the long-term effectiveness of the interventions, Seage said.

first_imgNathan Keyfitz, Andelot Professor of Sociology in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences and of Demography in the Faculty of Public Health, passed away on April 6, 2010, in Lexington, Massachusetts. He was 96 years old.Considered the preeminent mathematical demographer of his day, Keyfitz was a pioneer in the application of mathematical methods to the study of populations. His publications, including six books and over a hundred articles, cover a wide range of topics including population theory, historical demography, mortality, urbanization, forecasting, the relationship between retirement and social security, poverty, and the interplay between populations and their environments. His research and consulting activities involved numerous countries including Indonesia, Italy, India, Russia, China, Ceylon, and Argentina.Keyfitz was a fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, the Royal Statistical Society, the American Statistical Association, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the National Academy of Sciences. He was the recipient of seven honorary doctorates, won the Mindel C. Sheps Award of the Population Association of America in 1976, and the Common Wealth Award of Distinguished Service in 1991. A symposium on mathematical demography was held at Ohio State University in his honor in June 2013.The citation to the Mindel C. Sheps Award noted that, “Dr. Keyfitz’s original contributions have included an exposition of the momentum factor in population growth, advances in the understanding of multiple decrement tables, refinement of life table construction methods and innovations in the design and evaluation of population projections. He has enriched the field by bringing in techniques from mathematical biology and mathematics. He has been a leader, too, in the application of computer to demographic phenomena.”Three of Keyfitz’s books were particularly influential. His Introduction to the Mathematics of Population (1968) became a foundational text for the field of mathematical demography and was the textbook for many years for courses in this field. His Applied Mathematical Demography (1977) broke new ground by showing how changes in specific factors that regulate population dynamics, such as birth and mortality rates, determine the characteristics of a population such as its age distribution. In addition, Keyfitz examined what would be the effects of eradicating specific diseases and the implementation of family planning. Keyfitz’s third major book, Population Change and Social Policy (1982), showed how demographic methods can be used to analyze a vast variety of social policy issues: the effects of birth control and abortion, the calculation of annuities from unisex life tables, where medical research should focus, needed adjustments to social security, and the effects of societal demography on innovation.Keyfitz was born in Montreal on June 29, 1913. He earned his BS.c. degree in mathematics from McGill University in 1934 and his Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of Chicago in 1952. Keyfitz started his career as a statistician at the Dominion Bureau of Statistics in Ottawa, Canada, where he worked for more than 20 years studying dimensions of the Canadian population. Over the remainder of his professional career, he held academic appointments at the Universities of Toronto, the University of Chicago, the University of California, and Ohio State University, as well as Harvard.Keyfitz was a professor at Harvard from 1972 to 1983 in the Department of Sociology in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences and in the Department of Population Science at the Harvard School of Public Health. He directed Harvard’s Center for Population and Development Studies from September 1973 to January 1975. He also served as chair of the Department of Sociology from 1978 to 1980.Keyfitz became professor emeritus at Harvard and moved to Ohio State where he was the Lazarus Professorship in Population Studies. In 1983 Keyfitz joined the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis in Vienna, Austria, first becoming its deputy director and the founding head of its demography department and later its president.The quintessentially polite and gentlemanly Canadian, Keyfitz was known for his warm and giving spirit. He was generous with his time, always being available to students and his colleagues. He loved exploring ideas with others and taught courses with colleagues with very different methodologies and theoretical perspectives in sociology. Keyfitz was also a deeply committed family man. He adored his wife, Beatrice, and was a loving father and grandfather. He is survived by his children, Robert and Barbara, grandchildren, Benjamin, Elizabeth, and Alexander, and his sister, Ruth Karp.Respectfully submitted,Orlando PattersonMary C.
