Only 19 per cent of STEM jobs are currently filled by women, while 36 per cent of women are graduating in science subjects, compared with 46 per cent of men. This is despite girls continuing to outperform boys in science subjects at school, averaging 74 per cent A-C versus 69 per cent A-C for boys.Although there is strong future demand for STEM professionals, the report’s authors estimate that there is currently a shortfall of 40,000 science graduates in the UK.Nida Broughton, chief economist at the Social Market Foundation, said: “Investments in infrastructure and the pace of technological innovation means growth in science, research, engineering and technology careers will continue to outpace other occupations. “That’s a big opportunity for today’s girls and a challenge for the UK’s industrial strategy. It’s essential that we invest in the skills and training so that the UK can meet this demand – and encouraging more women to consider science will be critical to our success.”Some of the jobs these young professionals could be filling in the future include: geotechnical design engineers; robotics engineers; data scientists and intelligence consultants. Share Ashley Coates whatsapp The number of jobs in science, research, engineering and technology (STEM) will grow at double the rate of other careers, providing an additional 142,000 new jobs in the UK between now and 2023.In a report by the Social Market Foundation and EDF, researchers estimate that a total of 640,000 STEM jobs will need to be filled over the next six years, with many of these jobs being new roles created within emerging industries. read more

How to have a healthy relationship when working with family

first_imgThursday 14 March 2019 2:52 pm Family members also understand each other’s strengths, and therefore know how to make the most of these positive attributes in the business.Cusden says that the highs are worth it. “Building a business with family – where you are all committed to the same vision – is ultimately very rewarding.” Emma-Jane Flynn whatsapp Share However, this directness isn’t always positive, and she says that the downside is that difficult discussions can get emotional. “Sometimes you have to disentangle business relationships from personal ones and be clear about which role you are operating in at that moment.”This is echoed by Suzanna Chaplin, managing director of ESBConnect. She says that old habits die hard if you’re not careful.“You can revert to being a stroppy teenager around your family; when things go wrong, you don’t want to end up stamping your feet and screaming how unfair things are in front of your whole company.”To avoid this, Chaplin says that you need to treat your parent like any other colleague at work.“The easiest way to compartmentalise this is to use their first name when discussing anything work related, and ‘mum’ or ‘dad’ when talking about a family matter.

You need time to relax and concentrate on family, not business.”Some have found that the opposite to be true when it comes to balancing work and family.For example, Oliver Codrington, managing director of health business London Wellness Centre, thinks that it can be useful to be able to discuss work out of hours.“Your partner is likely thinking about work while at home anyway, so it can be the perfect excuse to discuss it over the dinner table. Your partner also knows the context of your work stress and understands that you can’t ever just switch off.” While working with family is not for everyone, there are benefits in terms of loyalty, which helps to plan longer-term.center_img So what’s the trick to maintaining a healthy relationship when working with family? We asked a few of our members.Anna Cusden, chief executive of makeup brand Look Fabulous Forever, says that everyone needs to know their place in the business.The company was founded by her mother, Tricia Cusden, in 2013, with Anna and her sister Suzy joining afterwards.“When working with family, I would say it’s helpful to have clearly defined roles which you all understand to avoid treading on each other’s toes,” Anna says.”One of the benefits of working with family is being able to cut to the chase – there’s a directness that isn’t possible with colleagues you’re not related to.” whatsapp How to have a healthy relationship when working with family It is often said that people should avoid going into business with a loved one, but according to the Institute For Family Business, two thirds of UK businesses are family owned.That’s a whopping 4.8m companies in total.

Italy to relax lockdown restrictions from early May

Sled dog killed, another injured in muskox goring outside Nome

first_imgOutdoors | Western | WildlifeSled dog killed, another injured in muskox goring outside NomeAugust 16, 2015 by Matthew F. Smith, KNOM Share:A bull muskox. (Photo by Tim Bowman/U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service)A grimly familiar sight to Nome dog owners returned with the fatal goring of a local musher’s dog by a bull muskox Wednesday.Alaska Department of Fish and Game wildlife biologist Bill Dunker said Nome police called his office Wednesday afternoon to report two dogs were injured—one fatally—in the attack before the bull muskox was killed in what Dunker calls a clear case of “defense of life or property.”“Everything appears to be a justifiable DLP,” Dunker said.The dogs belonged to musher Rolland Trowbridge, who ran the Kuskokwim 300 earlier this year. He also ran the Yukon Quest in February—withdrawing near the race’s midpoint. Daughter Janelle Trowbridge also ran dogs from the family kennel in her 2014 Junior Iditarod run.Trowbridge declined to comment on the incident.Dunker said it’s the first fatal clash between muskox, and Nome residents and their animals, so far this summer. That’s a far cry from the multiple gorings and dog fatalities seen last year, including a DLP kill of a muskox harassing a dog and a similar DLP kill in the community of Wales.“This summer has been much better with regard to conflicts with muskox,” Dunker said. “We’re still having them on occasion, but certainly last year was kind of the ‘perfect storm’ of muskox conflicts in the Nome area. It’s certainly been the case that this year has been much less active with regard to muskox conflicts.”But just what makes up that “perfect storm” isn’t fully understood. Dunker said “anecdotal” observations on brown bear predation may have pushed muskox into the Nome area last year. But so far this summer, that’s not the case.“We haven’t made those same observations this year,” he said, “so we can’t say one way or the other that it was brown bear predation that was the smoking gun that ultimately drives them into the Nome area.”Dunker said Fish and Game’s muskox mitigation is ongoing. Failed attempts last year included everything from rubber bullets to bear decoys and the spraying of bear urine. This year he said ADF&G is trying an experimental electric fence installed at the Nome airport. Biologists are still waiting to see if the fence is effective.“But to be honest,” Dunker said, “we haven’t had a muskox bump into the fence yet. So we’re still investigating its effectiveness.”As for the DLP kill, salvage requirements include surrendering the meat from the animal, but in this case, the meat will stay local: it’s been donated to the Nome Covenant Church. The animal’s hide and the skull were salvaged and turned over to the department.Pastor Harvey Fiskeaux with the Covenant Church said the muskox in currently hanging in a church member’s shed, and a group from the church will be processing the meat tomorrow and putting it into the church’s freezer.Fiskeaux said they’ll be serving muskox roasts and stew at their Friday soup kitchens beginning in September.Share this story:last_img read more

Sandra Bernhard Returns (Again)

first_imgUncategorizedSandra Bernhard Returns (Again)By Elina Shatkin – May 28, 2012380ShareEmailFacebookTwitterPinterestReddItA Pop Culture Anthropologist Dishes on the Universe of BitchyYou’d be hard-pressed to find another performer who can swerve between froufrou 1960s pop songs, maudlin ’80s hair-metal ballads, and Broadway show tunes with as much panache as Sandra Bernhard. In her latest one-woman show, Sandrology, which runs at REDCAT from May 30 through June 10, she does all that and more, monologuing like a woman besotted by art, politics, and mass media. “Because things happen much quicker than they did five or ten years ago, these are emergency dissections of culture,” Bernhard says. “I try to stay away from the obvious and unearth things that may be ancient, may be new.” The show is as varied and mercurial as Bernhard’s personality, touching on relationships and motherhood, shedding and adding elements from night to night. “If I’m really in the zone, a word I hate to use, there is a place that you sometimes get into where you’re an open vessel and your mind is really flowing. Those nights I can go on a tear, and they’re incredible. But you can’t do that every night.” Photograph by William Baker TAGS2012L.A.

European Election candidate with Laois connections sets out campaign priorities

first_img TAGS2019 European ElectionsMinister Andrew Doyle WhatsApp Facebook RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Twitter Pinterest WhatsApp Andrew Doyle Fine Gael Laois’s constituency move from the Midlands/North-West to Ireland South has left some people feeling a little cold towards the upcoming European Elections.It is often said that all politics is local but of the 23 candidates that we will be asked to vote for in May, not one of them is from Laois. The closest candidate geographically to us is People Before Profit’s Adrienne Wallace who is from Cork but now lives in Carlow.After that, nine of the candidates come from Cork, four from Tipperary, three from Wexford, two each from Wicklow and Kerry while Kilkenny and Waterford provide one each.However, one of the Wicklow candidates, Fine Gael’s Andrew Doyle, has a close connection to Laois as his late mother Maureen (nee Moore) came from Timahoe.Maureen passed away at the end of March and speaking to LaoisToday, Roundwood native Andrew explained the connection.He said: “My mother was born in Garryglass in Timahoe. Her father was Dan Moore and her mam was Annie Moore.“My grandparents are actually buried out in Abbeyleix. Dan was actually a prisoner of war and he wasn’t out at the time of the signing of the Treaty.“My mother was born in 1934 and for some reason my grandfather had to sell the family farm in Timahoe and he moved to Ballybrittas.“From there he went to Freshford where he worked for the Mill Hill Fathers. Dan died when my mother was 12 so she and three of her siblings went off to Falcarragh in Donegal on a scholarship to become a teacher.“She taught in parts of Carlow before she eventually went to Blessington where she met my late father Bernard.“He passed away six years ago but they would have been married for 60 years last August.”Back: Maureen Doyle, Annie Moore, Aisling ByrneFront: Mick MooreWhile on the campaign trail, Andrew has discovered that he is actually related to two very well known Fine Gael families in Stradbally – the Phelans and the Dunnes.He said: “When I was in Stradbally the other day canvassing, it turns out I am related to Sylvester Phelan (dad of election candidate Vivienne) and Dick Dunne (of Dunne’s Pub).“It is funny because my mother’s family would not traditionally have been known as Fine Gaelers.“I received a mass card for my mother from Thomas Duff of Ballyknockan, Sylvester told me if I was related to them, that I was related to him.“And then when I went down to Dunne’s, Dick told me that Mick Moore was a brother of my grandfather Dan and that he was related to the Dunnes.”Maureen Doyle, Bernard Doyle, Joan Fitzgerald, Garret Fitzgerald and Andrews sister BerniceAndrew Doyle is currently the Minister of State at the Department of Agriculture, with responsibility for Food, Forestry and Horticulture.In addition to his current Ministerial role, Andrew has spent 20 years as a public representative.He was first elected a TD in 2007, and topped the poll in 2011 in Wicklow, before being re-elected for a third term in 2016.As a beef farmer, Andrew firmly believes that agriculture is the life book of rural Ireland and he has five key priorities for his campaign.He wants to: give Ireland and Leinster an experienced voice in Europe; protect the environment and promote climate friendly food production; support the farming community, ensure CAP is retained and promote the Agri-Food and Drink sector; cut red-tape and bureaucracy for SMEs and Businessess; and support EU overseas development aid.Andrew said: “My work with the Department of Agriculture has allowed me to be involved in EU negotiations and lead trade missions worldwide promoting the Irish food and beverage sector.“If elected to the European parliament, I would use the experience I have here to get the best for the people of Laois, Leinster and Ireland.”SEE ALSO – Deep sadness as well-known Laois charity activist passes away Previous articleWomen in Sport: The Laois teenager constantly going for gold – it’s Ava O’ConnorNext articleBig celebrations in store as popular Final Furlong pub marks 25 years Alan HartnettStradbally native Alan Hartnett is a graduate of Knockbeg College who has worked in the local and national media since 2008.

Measures to Enable the Country to Adapt to Climate Change

This report will update the First National Communication and will set out the vulnerability and adaptation options in the water resources, coastal zone, human health, human settlement and agriculture sectors,” he explained.Also, the implementation of a community-based adaptation project, under the Global Environment Facility Small Grants Programme began in 2007, with the aim of reducing vulnerability and enhancing the capacity of selected communities to adapt to climate change and variability.“During the year, work started on the development of a Climate Change Communications Strategy by the National Environmental Education Committee (NEEC), Panos Caribbean and the Government. A National Climate Change Committee is expected to be established in 2008 to effectively oversee and guide the process of integrating climate change considerations into national development,” Minister Spencer informed.He noted further that the Ministry has continued its public awareness programmes to foster greater awareness of the environment, including climate change, noting that increasing the general awareness and public education of the importance of climate change to national development, will result in the implementation of more effective measures to reduce risk to those hazards that regularly affect the country.Pointing out that 2007 had been an exceptional year globally and nationally for climate change activities, Mr. Spencer made note of Jamaica’s participation in the 13th Conference of Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, which was held in Bali, Indonesia in December.He outlined that at the conference, Jamaica reiterated the Government’s commitment to reducing significantly, the country’s dependency on the use of fossil fuels for energy production by 2017 and to increase the use of renewable energy sources to about 25 per cent of the energy mix; highlighted its programme to achieve developed country status by the year 2030 through inter alia, the development, diffusion and transfer of clean, less carbon intensive technologies, along with the building of institutional and human capacities.Support was also articulated for a second commitment period that will see the Annex I Parties taking on ambitious and significant emission reduction limitation objectives and the country’s readiness to begin the discussions that will result in the establishment of a platform for negotiations.last_img read more

In the process, the Government raked in close to $8 billion.”I want to thank everyone, who participated in that programme,” Mr. Shaw said. Advertisementslast_img read more
