Greece showed that,” said Proell at a meeting of Eurozone finance ministers (known as ECOFIN). “Ireland must say now what it wants and… what it can give.”His comments will inflame sentiment in Ireland, where voters were angered by French president Sarkozy’s demand that the country raise its low 12.5 per cent corporate tax rate in order to qualify for any relief on its debt interest. New Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny flatly refused the demand.Newedge bonds strategist Bill Blain said: “Picking a fight with the Irish by threatening their sovereignty, or making demands they can’t possibly back away from, is never a positive thing. They can be quite belligerent.”Eurozone leaders pointedly restructured Greece’s €110bn debt but not Ireland’s on Saturday, cutting interest on Greek’s bailout funds by one per cent and extending its maturity by 3.5 years.Observers still think that Greece and Ireland run high risks of default, however.ECOFIN announced yesterday that it will agree on the details of how it will boost the Eurozone’s main bailout fund by next week.They agreed on Saturday to increase the fund’s ability to lend from €250bn to its full €440bn, but did not specify how this would be achieved while maintaining its AAA rating.EU?leaders also agreed to strengthen the Stability and Growth Pact, mandating that indebted countries front-load fiscal consolidation and increase competitiveness by increasing the efficiency of their labour markets.

News 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies December 28, 2020 Find out more May 13, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders is very worried about the impact of yesterday’s military coup d’état on press freedom. President Manuel Zelaya’s ouster was followed by a curfew during which the broadcasts of several radio and TV stations were suspended.“We condemn a coup against a democratically-elected president on principle, especially as it raises concern about respect for basic freedoms including press freedom,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The suspension or closure of local and international broadcast media indicates that the coup leaders want to hide what is happening. The Organisation of American States and the international community must insist that this news blackout is lifted.”As soon as the curfew had been decreed, the National Telecommunications Commission (CONATEL) notified cable TV operators of a ban on broadcasting certain international TV stations such as Telesur, Cubavisión Internacional and CNN Español. The broadcasts of Radio Globo and several other stations were also either interrupted or shut down.In the provinces, around 25 soldiers stormed into the studios of Radio Progreso, a station affiliated to the Latin American Association of Radio Education, four hours after the coup and forced the staff to stop all work. In a statement, station manager Ismael Moreno said the intervention of local residents prevented more serious violence. Still in the military’s sights, Radio Progreso has not yet resumed broadcasting.The military coup and Roberto Micheletti’s subsequent installation by congress as the new president prompted demonstrations in support of the ousted president. Members of the Association of Taxis of Honduras who were staging a demonstration in Tegucigalpa attacked a photographer with the daily El Heraldo, throwing stones at him and then beating and kicking him as he lay on the ground.Reporters Without Borders added: “Honduran journalists already suffer from the high level of violent crime in normal times. We also appeal to the media to act responsibly at this difficult moment. They should refrain from fuelling a polarisation in public opinion that could expose journalists to more reprisals.”(Photo : AFP) Follow the news on Honduras HondurasAmericas RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America to go further Receive email alerts Reports Organisation June 29, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 News blackout after army ousts president April 27, 2021 Find out more News RSF’s 2020 Round-up: 50 journalists killed, two-thirds in countries “at peace” RSF_en HondurasAmericas News Help by sharing this information
Facebook BBB tip: How to avoid employment scams when searching for summer jobs WhatsApp TAGSBBBemployment scams Facebook Pinterest WhatsApp By Heather Massey – May 23, 2021 Pinterest Heather Massey is the Regional Director of the Better Business Bureau in the Permian Basin. Check out www.bbb.org or call 563-1880. The beginning of summer brings an influx of job-seeking students looking to capitalize on their free time by earning money over their three-month break. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, most of these students find employment in the accommodations and food service industry. However, due to the complications associated with COVID-19, employment opportunities in this industry fell by more than 2.2 million between 2019-2020. While the food service industry projects growth, it is still measurably less than pre-COVD-19 levels, causing would-be employees to look elsewhere for summertime employment.In 2018-19, employment scams were the No. 1 riskiest scam in North America, replaced by online purchase scams in 2020, according to BBB’s 2020 Scam Tracker Risk Report. The report also identified that students and individuals ages 25-34 were the most susceptible and likely to be victimized by employment scams. Surprisingly, 65 percent of reported employment scams related to becoming a “warehouse redistribution coordinator” or some similar title involving the reshipment of packages, some of which involve stolen goods. In many cases, scammers impersonated well-known retailers, like Amazon and Walmart, to appear legitimate.With the amount and significant variation of employment scams, BBB conducted a study focused specifically on these scams in 2020. In an article released when the study was published, Melisa Trumpower, executive director of the BBB Institute for Marketplace Trust, said employment scams have changed both their historical targets and how victims are exposed.“This research was timely as we found that more than half of scam targets were seeking work-from-home opportunities,” said Trumpower. “As more people search for flexible employment opportunities following the coronavirus outbreak, they need to know that scammers are out there in force and targeting those most in need. Employment scams don’t just affect those who lose money. For every victim who lost money, at least one other worked without pay, and yet another lost personal information that could lead to identity theft.”To avoid employment scams targeting students looking for summertime employment, follow these tips provided by your Better Business Bureau:Some positions are more likely to be scams. Be wary of package reshipment and secret shopper positions, as well as any jobs with generic titles such as caregiver, administrative assistant or customer service representative. Positions which do not require special training or knowledge appeal to a wide range of applicants, which scammers use to cast a wider net for potential victims. If the job posting is for a well-known company, check the company’s job posting page to see if the position is legitimate. If the posting can be found in multiple cities with the exact same wording, it may be a scam. Jobs which advertise themselves as “high pay and flexible schedules” are extremely appealing to students searching for summer jobs, a fact that scammers use to their advantage. Be cautious of postings that use this type of language.Beware aggressive employment offers. Any pressure to sign or onboard immediately is a sign that the company may not be legitimate. Choosing a place to work is an important decision that most legitimate companies understand requires time to consider. Be especially wary if the position is offered without an interview or promises a large income under the condition the employee pays for coaching, training or certifications.Do not deposit unexpected or suspicious checks. Be cautious with whom and how you share your personal information, such as banking information. Do not fall for an overpayment scam. Legitimate companies will not overpay an employee and ask for compensation by requiring money to be wired elsewhere.Get contracts in writing. Employee requirements, qualifications and job duties should be in writing. If using a recruiting service, the service should provide a complete contract for the cost of their services, what the service includes, who pays for the service (either the jobseeker or employer) and what happens if the recruiter fails to find a position.For more information about employment scams and to access BBB’s 2020 Employment Scams Report for free, visit BBB.org/EmploymentScams.If you’ve been a victim of an employment scam, report it on BBB.org/ScamTracker.

honglouwawa/iStock(NEW YORK) — Seven Western states are under flood or snow alerts as two storms combine in the Southwest.The biggest threat from this weather system will be flash flooding from Southern California to Arizona, Nevada and into southern Utah.On Tuesday afternoon, the southern storm will push tropical moisture into the Southwest, bringing heavy rain and likely flash flooding from San Diego to Phoenix to Tucson. Meanwhile, the northern storm system will spread snow into the northern Rockies.By Wednesday afternoon and evening, the two storms will combine into one large storm system that will stretch from the Plains into the Southwest, bringing snow to the Rockies and upper Midwest and heavy rain from San Diego to the Plains.This will be the first significant winter-like storm for Southern California and southern Nevada. Three inches of rain is possible in Arizona, which could cause flash flooding. One to two feet of snow is possible in the mountains just north of Las Vegas.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.

AaronAmat/iStock(ROCKVILLE) — Montgomery County, Maryland, has officially become the first in the United States to ban discrimination based on hairstyles on a local level.The county expanded its human rights legislation on Thursday to include the new ban after being unanimously voted to pass by the Montgomery County Council.This bill falls under the CROWN (Creating a Respectful and Open World for Natural Hair) Act, which ensures protection against discrimination based on hairstyles.The original bill was introduced in September 2019 and spearheaded by Montgomery County Council member Will Jawando along with Council President Nancy Navarro.“It will expand the definition of race to include natural hairstyles, like Afros, twists, Bantu knots and protective hairstyles like braids, that people of African descent wear,” Jawando said in an interview with ABC Washington D.C. station WTOP. “We have over 200,000 black and Latina women in Montgomery County, many of whom get up every day and make decisions about how they are going to present themselves to the world,” Jawando said.Montgomery’s news follows similar legislations passed on a state level in California, New York and New Jersey.Sen. Cory Booker also announced efforts in December 2019 to pass the first federal bill banning hair discrimination.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.
Comments are closed. Could it be New Year cheer for families?On 9 Dec 2003 in Personnel Today Let’s hope the Government’s New Year resolutions include a fresh approach tochildcare provision. The speculation that the Chancellor Gordon Brown may make childcare voucherstax-free in the next Budget could just be wishful thinking on the part of theworking parents lobby (see page 4). But if it is true, then employers shouldembrace the change with open arms, as it will go a long way to transformingviews on combining motherhood with careers. Energy and talent within the UK workforce is being wasted because too manymothers give up their jobs, feeling disillusioned with the lack of childcaresupport. British parents pay the highest childcare bills in Europe, while everyweek, more and more of them are withdrawing their labour, frustrated that theycannot balance their costs and the demands of the job with their family needs. Only one childcare place exists for every five children under the age ofeight, and a typical nursery place for a child under two costs £128 a week. Childcare vouchers are available, but few employers have bought into thescheme because of the administrative burden of calculating the tax. If thechancellor removes this obstacle, then perhaps firms will see how beneficialvouchers could be in retaining good people and encouraging them to return towork after maternity. HR and employers have a huge responsibility to act on this issue, and itmakes good business sense. Working mums are not as motivated and engaged asthey could be, yet will become an essential resource going forward. There isgrowing evidence that, if given the chance, the majority of those in employmentwould quit tomorrow due to the lack of workplace flexibility and cripplingchildcare costs. This Labour Government has moved a long way in addressing workplace injusticesand inequality. The next step is to give even greater priority to childcareprovision for the good of the economy and the wider community.
