of those referred to Prevent, 332 individuals went onto receive support from Channel as well as 54% of all referrals being signposted to other forms of support the proportion of individuals supported by Channel as a result of far-right concerns has risen from a quarter in 2015 to 2016 to over a third in 2016 to 2017 79% people left the programme with no further terrorism-related concerns The figures also show: The Prevent programme is fundamentally about protecting people who are vulnerable to all forms of radicalisation and has stopped hundreds of individuals being drawn towards terrorism and violence. The figures released today show that the programme is continuously improving, demonstrated by better referrals being made and the fact that we are tackling the threat from the far-right. We have seen all too starkly the devastating consequences of radicalisation and the need for a coordinated response at a local and national level. We will continue to work with partners to improve and make sure this crucial support is given to those who need it. The number of individuals referred to Prevent who went on to be discussed at the multi-agency Channel panel who examine whether an intervention is necessary, rose from 14% in 2015 to 2016 to 19% indicating better quality referrals are being made. The proportion of referrals which went on to receive Channel support also increased slightly. Nick is one of many Channel mentors who supports individuals referred to Prevent across the country. They come from a range of backgrounds, some are former far right and Islamist extremists themselves, and are matched to individuals based on the support they need.Rashad Ali, a Channel Intervention Provider, said: It was easy to get dragged along. There were a lot of people I looked up to and I thought they were positive role models. Nick helped me to understand both sides of the argument. Before then I had only seen one side of things that I’d seen or watched online. I would encourage anyone who is referred and needs support to be involved with Prevent. It can open your eyes and create opportunities that you may not have had otherwise. Figures released by the Home Office today (Tuesday 27 March) show that between April 2016 to March 2017, 6,093 individuals were referred to the government’s Prevent programme and of those who received support from Channel, over a third were as a result of far-right concerns.Security Minister, Ben Wallace, said: One person who benefitted from the Channel programme was Joe who was drawn to the extreme right-wing when he was just 15. He started going to football matches and fell under the influence of some older individuals who had far-right views.His behaviour soon became a problem for others and he started getting in trouble, including racial discrimination at school. This eventually escalated to violent behaviour which saw Joe getting in trouble with the police. He was referred to Prevent where he met his mentor, Nick, who helped him broaden his views.Joe said: Everyone involved in the Channel programme is passionate about helping those who are vulnerable to radicalisation to stop them from going down a very dangerous path. Channel is a voluntary and confidential safeguarding programme which provides support to people identified as vulnerable to being drawn into terrorism. It deals with all forms of radicalisation including Islamist extremism and the extreme right-wing. The number of Prevent referrals is very small compared to other forms of safeguarding, for example, in the same time period, over 645,000 children were referred to children’s social care in England.
This ban on third party sales of puppies and kittens is part of our commitment to make sure the nation’s much-loved pets get the right start in life. I pay tribute to the Lucy’s Law campaign and the many stakeholders who have passionately campaigned for this ban. Today’s decision builds on our previous action in this area, including banning the sale of puppies under eight weeks and tackling the breeding of dogs with genetic disorders. I urge anyone who is thinking of buying a puppy, or any pet, at this time of year to pause and think carefully before doing so. Pets become a part of our families and it is a decision that requires careful consideration and planning. It should not be undertaken on a whim or as a surprise. That is why we promote responsible pet ownership in our welfare codes and I urge fellow animal lovers to consider the idea of rehoming a dog from the many wonderful organisations across the country. Marc Abraham, TV Vet, and founder of PupAid and the Lucy’s Law campaign to ban third party puppy and kitten sales, said: Battersea’s Chief Executive Claire Horton said: The government will also continue to work with stakeholders on the issue of whether non-commercial rescue and rehoming centres will require a licence to operate. Over 90% supported this idea in a call for evidence. The government has confirmed it will be banning third party sales of puppies and kittens, Animal Welfare Minister David Rutley announced today (23 December).The decision was taken following a public consultation, from which there was over 95 per cent support for a ban. It will help bring to an end the terrible welfare conditions found in puppy farming and solve a range of existing animal welfare issues.This will mean that anyone looking to buy or adopt a puppy or kitten under six months must either deal directly with the breeder or with an animal rehoming centre.This will help to crack down on puppy farms and make it much harder for high volume low welfare breeders, both licensed and unlicensed, whose trade relies on third party sellers.These include the early separation of puppies and kittens from their mothers and the increased likelihood of long journeys that puppies or kittens have to undertake. All of these can contribute to an increased risk of disease and a lack of socialisation for the puppies and kittens.During a visit to Battersea Cat and Dogs Home, Animal Welfare Minister David Rutley said: Christmas time is often a popular time for puppy and pet purchases but this carries a number of risks and can have tragic consequences for animal welfare when pets are either abandoned or given to rehoming centres to deal with.The government fully supports those charities who have been calling for responsible dog ownership and for people to consider carefully whether they want to buy a pet for Christmas before doing so. Pets should not be bought as a surprise.A Dog Trust spokesperson said: Battersea welcomes today’s government confirmation that third party sales of puppies and kittens will be banned. Properly enforced, this will help put an end to dogs being used as breeding machines and kept in shocking conditions. The days of unscrupulous puppy dealers lining their pockets with no regard for animal welfare must now come to an end. This ban makes breeders properly accountable for the puppies they produce and will now give future owners the reassurance that they can adopt their new dog or cat from a safe and trusted source and ideally from a rescue centre. Today’s announcement is a positive step for animal welfare and we are also pleased that our recommendation to regulate the rehoming sector is being seriously considered. We already know of cases where unscrupulous sellers set themselves up as fake breeders, with fake homes and fake puppy mums, while shipping in puppies from puppy farms or overseas. By looking to address this loophole we can also prevent unscrupulous sellers from setting themselves up as a rehoming organisation in order to continue their devious trade. This is one of a package of measures which must be addressed for a ban to be fully effective. We ask everyone to remember our famous slogan, ‘A dog is for life, not just for Christmas®,’ when deciding to welcome a puppy into their lives. This is a real victory for grass roots campaigners as well as the UK’s dogs and cats. On behalf of my phenomenal Lucy’s Law team I thank the government, and every animal lover, ethical animal welfare organisation, parliamentarian, and celebrity that’s helped make Lucy’s Law’s ban on third party puppy and kitten sales a reality. The third party trade supports and sustains both legal and illegal puppy dealing, inappropriate activities suffering exactly the same negative welfare implications; effectively the puppy or kitten (and their mum) is damaged before reaching the licensed or unlicensed seller. Thanks to Lucy’s Law’s ban on third party dealers, every breeder now becomes accountable and transparent, prospective owners will always see mum interacting with puppy or kitten in the place they were born, and illegally smuggled pups become more difficult to sell, make it making it the first major step in tackling irresponsible dog and cat breeding in the UK and beyond. Lucy’s Law will help end puppy farming, protect the future health and happiness of dogs like poor little Lucy, as well as encourage prospective pet owners to adopt from their local rescue shelter too.
The UK’s eating out sector is forecast to grow 3% in value, to £82.5bn, over the next 12 months, despite an increasingly competitive trading environment.Published in Allegra Foodservice’s Market Outlook Report, it cites emerging fast food concepts, coffee shops and the growing “street food movement” as being behind the sales growth.The report added that an improving economic outlook, strengthening consumer spending power will support growth.Executives from the report said that “intensifying competition” was a core business challenge, overtaking concerns over rising food costs. Building stronger customer loyalty will be also be a critical success factor.Simon Stenning, strategy director, said that the growth will be hard fought for in an “increasingly competitive trading environment”, adding that operators must innovate and add greater value across the consumer experience.“Eating out market value growth of 3% in 2014 will be the highest since the recession began and is clearly welcome news,” Stenning said. “This will come from a combination of increasing consumer eating out participation, an uptick in visit frequency and some average spend gains as consumers start to feel more confident about their personal finances and spending power.”Allegra Foodservice, part of William Reed Business Media, provides leading market intelligence and analysis to the foodservice industry.
What essential items do you like to have on hand when you write?Nothing. It took me a little while to learn first how to use a typewriter—I mean I always could type, but I never thought I would write creative stuff on the typewriter. Later I taught myself the computer.What play changed your life?What’s the first thing you do when you sit down to write?That depends. I try, if I’m in the middle of something, to have left the ball in the air, so when I come back, I know exactly where I am and how I can catch the ball.Is it hard to leave the ball in the air? No. It’s rather easy. Writing is hard; it gets lonely. While I like to do it and there are moments of great pleasure, I’m glad to get away from it. But then I’m eager to return to it.What inspired Sylvia?My dog! My wife Molly teaches in town, and we bought this house in the country. I liked to stay up there and at that time. I did a lot of gardening and fixing up of the house, but I missed her. I had made myself a peanut butter sandwich for lunch and read this ad in the local paper about a Lab puppy. I always liked Labradors, so I just thought I’d go over and look at it. Well, I came home with it. My wife said, “For god’s sake! No more dogs!” I knew I was in trouble, but I had already fallen for this dog. I said, “I don’t think I can give this up.” The lines from the play are real. She said: “I won’t walk it. I won’t feed it. I won’t pat it. I won’t have anything to do with it.” One time I got quite sick with the flu, and she said, “Sorry, you’re going to have to get up and walk that dog.” Then she softened a bit, just as Julie [White] does at the end of the play.What are some of your dog’s names over the years?Porgy, Sambo (like Little Black Sambo—that was very racist; it was a long time ago), Alice was the first female dog I had, then I had a great rescue dog called Joe—even my wife adored him— and Snoozer, who is a character in a play of mine, and ultimately the last one I had is Bill. Most of them had human names. Related Shows Show Closed This production ended its run on Jan. 3, 2016 What’s the best piece of advice you ever received about writing?To continue the habit. Don’t walk away from it even though you hit a slump or you don’t think you have anything else to tell the world. I’ve certainly felt that many times. Sit down and work even if you’re thinking, “This is going to be a useless morning and nothing is going to work,” something does. I’d say just stick to your last. Isn’t there an old expression, the workman sticks to his last? The very process of writing words can cause creative things to happen that you didn’t think were there.You are one of the most prolific playwrights working today. Do you attribute that to your persistence?I think so. You could say I can attribute it to my stupidly bourgeois habits.What drives you to write now that’s different from when you were first starting out?I always write about where I am. I wrote plays about falling in love and how to deal with kids. When my kids started to leave the nest, I wrote plays about that. I try to write as much as I can about my own experiences. I’m getting old and I’m writing about how it feels to get old. I’m just starting another one, but I won’t tell you what that’s about.Do you keep a notebook?I used to keep a notebook, but I don’t now. If you looked at my computer, there are sort of half-written plays with great titles, which never went anywhere.When you’re starting to write a play, do you make an outline?No. I start with the play. I think I want to have some place to go, so I don’t just write about two people talking or whatever it is. It might end in a very different way than I thought it would. I remember with Love Letters, I had no idea where it was going, I knew I had a pretty good story because I had two very different characters who were fascinated with each other, but then suddenly towards the end, I realized I had to kill her off. When I wrote the last scene, I cried—tears were dripping down my cheeks. I never expected it to go that way, but it had to go that way.What playwrights inspire you?How do you feel about being so closely associated with WASP culture?I used to think it was slightly pejorative. It meant snooty, alcoholic and intolerant. I used to think I wasn’t writing just about WASPs: I’m writing about issues people can understand and identify with. Then I began to realize that I was writing about my own culture; I didn’t realize how parochial my own culture was. I thought I was writing about the heart of American behavior. Not at all! Not everyone has dining rooms! I kind of woke up to the fact that I was exploring my own culture and how it was fading. Responding to that sense of obsolescence and that was really my theme. What does it mean to you to have Sylvia on Broadway? This is my third play on Broadway. It’s been wonderful: I’ve been working with the top people—designers, directors, actors. Partly because we’re doing a play that I’ve seen done many times, there hasn’t been that much for me to do. A lot of playwrights like to sit on rehearsals, and normally I do if it’s a new play. It’s impressive for me to see this play emerge on Broadway with these terrific people.You are known for loving musicals. Why don’t you write them?I do love them and I used to write them. The first time I went to New York—I was at a boarding school and my father got me tickets to Annie Get Your Gun with Merman. It just blew me away. Not only because she was so funny; she pretends she’s a Western kind of Okie, but she’s a New York girl from the beginning, middle and end. Suddenly, all I wanted to do was write musicals. I went to Williams College—Stephen Sondheim wrote the musicals there, but he graduated two years before I did. So I said, “I’m here, I can do that!” I certainly couldn’t write music, but I found people to write the music with me. The Korean War was on when I graduated. I became an officer on a giant aircraft carrier. We had the ship’s orchestra, and I wrote musicals. I loved it. Because of that, I went to Yale School of Drama. But then for some reason, I ran out of steam. I cut my teeth doing musicals, but I never wrote another musical. Oh, I did write one! A Cole Porter take-off, which didn’t work. A.R. Gurney is one of the most prolific and often produced playwrights working today. His many works include Love Letters, The Dining Room, Sweet Sue, The Cocktail Hour and Sylvia, which is currently playing at Broadway’s Cort Theatre with Annaleigh Ashford in the title role. Gurney recently moved into a spacious new apartment on the Upper West Side and invited Broadway.com over to talk about dogs (his most recent one, Bill, died a few months ago), Broadway and his “bourgeois habits.”What time of day do you get your best work done?I’m getting a little lazy now, but I’m normally up by 8:30 and at my desk by 9. I write in the morning, have lunch, and then write a little in the afternoon—just going over what I’ve written but not writing with any kind of the intensity that I can muster up in the morning. I’ve been doing this for 40 years. I’ve always been a morning writer. View Comments Sylvia What do you think all aspiring playwrights should do or see or read?Aspiring playwrights should write as much as you can. See as many plays of different types as you can. I know it’s not cheap to go to the theater these days, but you don’t have to go to Broadway. Read Ibsen, read Chekhov, see how the pros did it. Your generation grew up on television; I grew up on radio, and radio taught me the power of dialogue—how much of a story you can tell just through talk. Your generation is much more aware of the visual possibilities, but television tends to be reactive, the television camera tends to go to the person who’s listening and not the person who’s talking. Sometimes it affects younger playwrights because they’re so good at dialogue, but the television influence has suggested to them that plays don’t have to have that forward action that they must have. I think that you’ve got to learn that.What’s your favorite line in Sylvia?
U.S. coal exports down sharply in second quarter compared to 2018 FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享S&P Global Market Intelligence ($):U.S. coal exports were roughly flat in the second quarter compared to shipments made in the prior period but remained down 18.1% compared to the second quarter of 2018.About 23.2 million tonnes of coal were shipped from U.S. ports in the second quarter of 2019, nearly flat compared to 23.1 million tonnes of coal shipments in the prior quarter and down significantly from 28.3 million tons of coal exports in the second quarter of 2018. Exports heading to India, the sector’s largest customer, were down 24.6% year over year and 16.9% quarter to quarter.The U.S. Energy Information Administration recently projected annual coal exports would sink by about 15.6 million tons to 100 million tons this year. Exports are expected to fall further to 90.4 million tons in 2020.European steelmakers have struggled in recent months, leading to lower demand for U.S. metallurgical coal, Seaport Global Securities LLC noted in an Aug. 13 analyst note. Ports in the Netherlands, a typical point of entry for shipments heading to customers throughout Europe, took about 6.7% less coal from ships originating in the U.S.Foresight Energy LP President and CEO Robert Moore said the netbacks on export tons are falling compared to the levels seen before and the company is evaluating options to move coal back into domestic markets. “We are shipping coal everywhere that we can find a home for it. I mean, we’re moving coal into South America. We’re moving coal into Asia. We’re still moving coal into Europe,” Moore said. “If these export markets aren’t there, then we’re poised to take domestic share. And that’s what we’re going to do.”The president and CEO of another Illinois Basin producer, Alliance Resource Partners LP, said Alliance was prepared to capture domestic business from higher-cost producers by either selling at a lower price or working out a deal to sell its coal to its peers to fulfill contracts of higher coal producers if export markets do not improve. “I’m not counting on the domestic market mix changing and I’m not counting on the domestic market growing,” said Joe Craft. “I’m just saying, we can absorb. If there’s no export market or the export market stays flat, there are opportunities for us to sell coal domestically that would be more attractive than selling into the current price curve for [the European coal price benchmark] API2.”More ($): U.S. coal export volume sank 18.1% in Q2’19 compared to year-ago

He keeps the credit union … Web: www.cuinsight.com Details When developing leaders in your credit union, it’s important to find the right candidates. Not every employee is leadership material. Investing in the wrong person is a waste of your time and the credit union’s money. If you want to find a future leader, look for these qualities.Future leaders know their stuff: A future leader knows their job like the back of their hand. Look for an employee who knows all the products and services your credit union has to offer. Invest in employees who take interest in growing the credit union and increasing its member-base. An employee that’s deeply invested in the credit union can potentially lead the way one day.Future leaders want to grow: Future leaders aren’t content in staying put. Listen to your employees and you’ll find one who wants more. Natural leaders take charge and want more responsibility. Look for employees who strive to learn more and do more every day.Future leaders work well with a team: Leaders have to lead, and that means they have to work well with a team. Any employee who works better on their own, probably isn’t the ideal future leader for you. Find someone who has a strong drive and works well with others.Future leaders can make decisions: An employee who can make a decision is a rare commodity. There’s always a risk factor when you have to choose, so you’ll want someone who’s not afraid to make a choice and follow through with it.
Most health experts, including Robert Redfield, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, have said a vaccine will likely not be widely available until mid-2021.Trump has accused Biden of spreading “anti-vaccine rhetoric,” while Biden has emphasized that he will listen to scientists, not the president, regarding a vaccine’s safety.The broadcast was the first town hall-style event for Biden since he accepted the Democratic nomination last month, giving viewers a rare chance to see him answer live questions from people whose votes he hopes to win in November.The cable network described the event as a “drive-in town hall”: participants remained at their parked cars outdoors to ensure they stayed safely distanced from one another. Topics : US Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Thursday bluntly contradicted President Donald Trump’s suggestion that a coronavirus vaccine may be only weeks away, warning Americans they cannot trust the president’s word.”The idea that there’s going to be a vaccine and everything’s gonna be fine tomorrow – it’s just not rational,” Biden said during a CNN town hall in Moosic, Pennsylvania.Trump again said on Wednesday that a vaccine for COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus, could be ready for distribution ahead of the Nov. 3 election. Biden spent much of the evening attacking Trump for his handling of the pandemic, including the president’s own admission to the journalist Bob Woodward that he deliberately downplayed the disease’s deadliness.”He knew it and did nothing,” Biden said. “It’s close to criminal.”Trump has subsequently said he was trying to avoid panic.Biden said he did not have the power to enforce a national mask mandate, walking back remarks he made on Wednesday in which he suggested the president could legally require masks amid a national emergency. But he vowed to encourage every governor to do so while criticizing Trump for questioning the efficacy of masks.Biden also took advantage of the event’s setting near his birthplace of Scranton, comparing his working-class upbringing with what he derided as Trump’s “Park Avenue” background.”Guys like me who were the first of my family to go to college… We are as good as anybody,” he said. “And guys like Trump, who inherited everything and squandered what they inherited, are the people that I’ve always had a problem with – not the people who are busting their neck.”He said he would accept the results of the election, a stance that Trump has declined to adopt amid his unfounded claims that the widespread use of mail-in ballots due to the pandemic will cause massive fraud.Electoral experts have said voter fraud is exceedingly rare in the United States, where voting by mail is a longstanding practice in many states.For much of the summer, Biden held mostly virtual events from his home in Delaware, drawing criticism from Trump that he was “hiding.” But Biden maintained an advantage in national opinion polls throughout, as the pandemic battered Trump’s standing among voters.In recent weeks, Biden has begun to hold campaign events again in other states, but they have been largely devoid of attendees aside from reporters and invited guests in a nod to the coronavirus.Trump, who has returned to holding large-scale rallies, participated in an ABC town hall with undecided voters earlier this week, where he defended his administration’s response to the outbreak.At an outdoor rally in Mosinee, Wisconsin, on Thursday night, Trump told supporters that Biden “would absolutely eradicate your state’s economy” and mocked the CNN event for keeping attendees apart in cars.COVID-19 has killed more than 195,000 people in the United States, the most of any country.Biden and Trump will both travel to Minnesota on Friday, the first day of early voting there.
