UPS Driver Saves Emaciated Great Dane

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMoreThis past January, UPS Driver Gavin Crowsley was making a delivery on his Indiana route when he spotted a large-breed, emaciated dog with no food, no water, no shelter, and tied to a short chain.“I could see every bone in his body,” said Crowsley. “He was just lying on the ground. I knew if that dog didn’t die from starvation, he was going to die from the weather. I just couldn’t leave him there.” Within hours after calling the Clay County Humane Society, they arrived on the scene and rescued the dying Great Dane, which they named Phoenix.The dog made a complete recovery and is now living with a loving family.Crowsley subsequently went on to raise money for other dogs in need of rescue through a Facebook Page called Phoenix Fighters.(Source: Life With Dogs TV)AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMorelast_img read more

The gender pay gap – it’s just not that simple

first_imgClosely on the heels of Mipim 2018, where the topic of diversity was high on everyone’s agenda, we’re now talking about gender pay gap reporting for UK businesses. It is an emotive – and potentially divisive – subject, which too often means that some of the facts get lost on the debate, and we end up with an over simplification of the situation.It is unfortunate that the methodology for measuring the gender pay gap is somewhat misleading at first glance. Using the average wage for males and females serves more to highlight the lack of females in the workforce rather than the difference in pay that the name suggests.For many companies today, men and women at the same level are paid the same. I am a female CEO of an architectural design practise which has a 40:60 male-female split. At every level, women are paid at the same rate as men. At entry level, we have more women than men. The challenge comes at the senior levels where the male-female ratio shifts – and this will take time to rectify.This ageing population will have the biggest effect on the pace of change in gender equality in the workplaceThe gender issue is being addressed by the majority of companies but it can’t happen overnight. I wish it could. The drive for equality is important but businesses are now dealing with the result of commonplace practice bias from over 30 years ago. But it is changing.The changes we are seeing now are the results of women in my generation – and generations before – that chose to stay in the game sitting alongside and competing with their male counterparts. This means we sacrificed family time, in some cases families, just like men have had to for a long time. It has always been possible to get to the top table, but now it is getting easier. Admittedly there is still a way to go but lets acknowledge the effort of the women that have gone before us as well as many enlightened and supportive men – be they former bosses, spouses, siblings or peers. They would be delighted at the choices that we now have.I am proud that my teenage daughter and her friends will never need to encounter the blatant sexism that so many have before them. They will have choices and a voice. I have no doubt that the future generations entering the workforce will be far more equal in gender numbers. The teenagers I know (and as mother of a female teenager I know a few) can not comprehend a world where they aren’t treated equally. And this applies to males as well as females.We can’t shy away from some fundamental and essential facts in the gender debate. It’s a confusing landscape at the moment in the workplace, and most of this confusion is blamed on gender bias. In reality the answer is far more complex. Quotas aren’t a long-term solution, although I accept that it was a kick start for many firms. I firmly believe that you have to be the best person for the job, regardless of gender. The danger with quotas is that men become disadvantaged and there appears to be an assumption that every male makes it to the top. They don’t; they have setbacks too. It is essential that jobs roles are awarded to the most deserving candidate, regardless of gender. Our challenge is to ensure that the resource pool has equal gender numbers in it, and that everyone has a fair chance.For the first time we are seeing five generations in the workplace, and for the first time we are understanding the impact this is having on us all. Everyone is working longer as our improved life expectancy allows and poor pension provision dictates. As a direct consequence the historically male dominated workforce is staying longer. There is no quick fix to the small number of females coming through to new senior positions as the existing management are slower to leave. This ageing population will have the biggest effect on the pace of change in gender equality in the workplace. Eventually the older working generation will be consist of both men and women, but not for awhile.Childcare availability and cost is almost always cited as the reason for thelack of females at senior levels. It is a hugely significant factor and there is a lot that the Government and businesses can do to change this. Motherhood is a natural human process, and it doesn’t have to mean the forfeit of a promising career. Childcare cost can be a limiting factor – but it is always talked about in terms of limiting the mother’s career financially. It is rarely seen as a couple’s issue. Viewed as a percentage on one income, childcare is expensive, but viewed as a percentage of the joint income it becomes slightly more bearable.However, as a society we must guard against ostracising those that decide they want to have time away to raise their children. We are in danger of removing this element of choice for women, which is just as important.This is an exciting time for women in the workplace, let’s not get distracted by potentially misleading stats and keep moving forward. I will support any campaign that truly benefits women, but singling us out to be handled with care is a road to nowhere. Men and women – we are in it together.last_img read more

No surprise that Granger Govt is seeking to thwart the No-Confidence motion

first_imgDear Editor,The death throes of the Granger Administration have become a fascinating show; faced with a no-confidence motion they publicly emasculated the role of the Speaker of the House by asserting that it is Government and not the Speaker, who sets the date for the hearing of the motion. Since the fall of the Government and the advent of the theory that 33 votes do not constitute a majority of 65 available, I have watched with morbid interest as the line of those prostituting their intellect grows.I do understand that some never had intellect to begin with, however, to see Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo assert that 33 being a majority is an absurdity, and not catered for by the framers of our constitution is tragic comedy.Editor, there is no surprise that the Granger Administration is seeking to use the courts to thwart the no-confidence motion passed against them. Disregard for the Constitution, misinformation, shamelessness and duplicity have been main characteristics of the Granger Administration throughout its term in office. President Granger ascended to office with a promise to bring law, order and dignity (along with the good life) to our nation. With its latest actions Granger’s Administration will forever be remembered for the parody of Government it became and the level of buffoonery it descended into when forced to face the electorate.Should the Judiciary agree to entertain a court challenge of the no-confidence motion on this basis, it may well be the shortest mathematics lesson in our nation’s history. For the Judiciary to even hear a challenge on any basis is an over-step in my opinion. In this I concede I may be wrong; lawyers do need to earn a living.It is my hope that President Granger can curb the enthusiasm of his minions and restore some modicum of pride and decency in the Office upon his return from Cuba. The man, the Office and the nation deserve better.Respectfully,Robin Singhlast_img read more
