Regalos que gratifican, durante todo el año

Nuestros armarios y sótanos ya están repletos”, dijo Shigaki a ENS en un mensaje electrónico reciente. Dar regalos alternativos es una manera elocuente de recordar a los que amamos durante Navidad y de apoyar programas como NetsforLife. Es también una forma adecuada de felicitar a amigos y familiares en cumpleaños, aniversarios, bautizos u otras ocasiones especiales a lo largo de todo el año”.El Fondo Inspiracional —un empeño popular a nivel de toda la Iglesia de educar, comprometer y unir a los episcopales en apoyo a los objetivos de desarrollo del milenio — se encuentra a medio camino de su meta de recaudar $5 millones para diciembre de 2012. La agencia se propone distribuir 7 millones de mosquiteros para 2013.Barbara van Gaasbeek, de Irvine, California, quería felicitar a una amiga y, con ese propósito, compró un sorbeto de la vida [LifeStraw] por $20.El sorbeto de la vida, que se puede obtener a través de Giving Children Hope, es un sorbeto, o pitillo, con un sistema portátil de purificación que filtra las bacterias y virus para hacer potable el agua que pueda estar contaminada. Sean Lawrence, gerente asociado de GCH, dijo que los sorbetos comprados en diciembre se están enviando junto con los despachos a Afganistán y Somalia en lotes de mil unidades.“Lo lindo del LifeStraw es que su utilidad es muy obvia.  Se trata de un sorbeto o pitillo largo con una tapa que se abre en cada extremo”, dijo Lawrence durante una reciente entrevista desde su oficina en Buena Park, California. “Uno de los extremos entra en la fuente de agua y el otro en la boca. Y no deja pasar el 99,9 por ciento de las bacterias, incluida las que causan el cólera y otras enfermedades. No conlleva ningún montaje, ni limpieza, ni mantenimiento, y alcanza para 1.000 litros; [dura] hasta un año en adultos y dos en niños”, explicó él.A cambio de la compra de van Gaasbeek, su amiga Mary recibió una tarjeta que describía el regalo. Ambas obtuvieron la satisfacción de llegar a otros y ayudarlos, dijo van Gaasbeek.“Podemos abrir la llave del agua cuantas veces queramos”, agregó van Gaasbeek durante una entrevista telefónica; pero eso no es verdad en todas partes. Otros tienen que recurrir a aguas sucias portadoras de enfermedades para sobrevivir. A mí me parece tan desequilibrado e injusto que cualquier cosa que podamos hacer para remediarlo, debemos hacerlo”.Ella no tardó en comprar otros nueve sorbetos y comenzó a venderlos en su iglesia, Santa María [St. Mary’s], en Laguna Beach, como un regalo alternativo de Navidad. En muy poco tiempo vendió 25 y espera hacer más ventas antes de que pasen las fiestas e incluso después.“Es una manera extraordinaria de felicitar a alguien o de recordar a alguien, porque se trata del regalo de la vida y aquí está en tus manos como un modo sencillo de prevenir enfermedades, bacterias y dolencias provocadas por beber agua contaminada”, dijo. “No puedo imaginar mejor regalo que éste por Navidad”.Del mismo modo, Erin Tharp, de 28 años y residente de Corona, California, quería hacer un regalo con sentido. Un brote de encefalitis viral la dejó incapaz de hablar y en una silla de ruedas por los últimos 13 años, pero eso no le impidió pedirles a otros miembros de la iglesia episcopal de San Juan Bautista [St. John the Baptist], of Corona, California, a que asumieran como reto de Adviento la compra de 100 sillas de ruedas a la Misión Silla de Ruedas Gratis [Free Wheelchair Mission].Pero primero, Tharp compró 10.La silla “no es cara para nuestros estándares, pero podría muy bien costar un millón de dólares para las personas que las necesitan. Puesto en los términos más simples, $60 es una fortuna para ellos”, dijo Tharp en un sermón que escribió letra a letra  valiéndose de un iPad especial y que otra persona le leyó a la congregación. En último término, la congregación sobrepasó su meta, recaudando dinero suficiente para comprar por lo menos 120 sillas de ruedas, según contara el Muy Rdo. John Saville, rector de la parroquia.Mike Kenyon, pastor de desarrollo eclesial para Free Wheelchair Mission, dijo que la organización con sede en Irvine ya ha entregado 500.000 sillas de ruedas como parte de su objetivo de distribuir 20 millones en todo el mundo.Hechas de sillas de jardín plásticas, ruedas de bicicleta y otras piezas reciclables, la silla de rueda tiene un costo de fabricación de $63,94 y fue diseñada para usarla sobre un terreno accidentado. El ingeniero mecánico Don Schoendorfer inventó la silla después de un viaje a Marruecos, donde vio a una mujer inválida que se esforzaba en arrastrarse por una carretera, apenas evadiendo el tránsito, contó Kenyon. La compañía se estableció en 2001.“Gracias a mi silla de ruedas, tengo muchísimas oportunidades”, escribió Tharp en su sermón. “Las personas a quienes Free Wheelchair Mission ayudan no aspiran a tomar vacaciones ni a vivir lujosamente, sólo quiere poder cruzar con seguridad una calle o ir a comprar sus víveres”.La iglesia de la Gracia [Grace Church], en Hastings on Hudson, Nueva York, celebró una feria de regalos alternativos el fin de semana antes del Día de Acción de Gracias, pero ofrece regalos a lo largo de todo el año a través de organizaciones sin fines de lucro, tales como Alternative Gifts International y SERVV que venden artículos de comercio justo hechos a mano en toda una variedad de precios, según explicó la rectora, Rda. Anna Pearson.“Tenemos opciones locales también”, dijo Pearson desde su oficina durante una reciente entrevista telefónica. “Con el descenso económico, creemos que es importante darles a las personas la oportunidad de hacer regalos tanto internacionales como muy locales”.Así, pues, $10 compraban un pavo con todas las guarniciones para una familia a través de la despensa de beneficencia de la localidad. “Un cumpleaños en una caja”, para un niño que de otro modo no habría tenido ninguna celebración y que incluía un pastel y todos los adornos además de un pequeño regalo, se vendió por $25.Los artículos domésticos y para niños fueron los que más se vendieron. “A todo el mundo le encanta comprar un conejito o una cabra”, a través del Programa de Animales y Agricultura para la Vida de Ayuda y Desarrollo Episcopales, dijo Pearson. Entre otras opciones de regalos se incluyen más de 30 agencias que ofrecen, por ejemplo, asesoría legal para trabajadores migrantes y preservación ambiental del río Hudson.La Iglesia hace un esfuerzo especial para incluir algo para todo el mundo, tal como “un par de artículos caros, aunque en su mayoría tratamos de mantener los regalos a un precio razonable y al alcance de personas de todas las edades, orígenes y tipos de presupuestos”, siguió diciendo Pearson.El precio de un artículo caro fue de aproximadamente $330, para una cisterna de agua potable, disponible para un proyecto en Kenia, por ejemplo. La feria de dos días produjo un ingreso neto de más de $25.000, compartido entre las organizaciones que participaron.“La iglesia no saca ninguna ganancia de la feria. En verdad, sentimos el llamado a hacer esto como congregación”, explicó Pearson “Creemos que es una manera de mostrarnos solidarios con algunos de nuestros hermanos y hermanas en Cristo que se enfrentan a dificultades”.“Nos esforzamos mucho para tener una buena representación de diferentes temas, de manera que uno pueda encontrar definitivamente algo que lo relacionará con una parte de la vida de alguien que uno ama”, añadió.“Es muy importante para nuestra congregación hacer esto, abundó Pearson. No sólo crear un enorme sentimiento de buena voluntad comunitaria, también “es acorde con el mandato del evangelio de alimentar al hambriento y vestir al desnudo y del deseo de Jesús de que nosotros lo hiciéramos. No es sólo porque ayuda a las personas que reciben los regalos, sino porque también nos ayuda a nosotros. Nos ayuda el dar regalos con sentido, sabiendo que no van a tirarlos y que afectarán positivamente la vida de las personas más allá de quien da el regalo y de quien lo recibe”.En la iglesia de San Lucas [St. Luke’s] en Durham, Carolina del Norte, por una donación tan modesta como $3, los dadores de regalos podrían colaborar con el empeño de la Cruz Roja Americana de erradicar el sarampión, que mata unas 164.000 personas al año, principalmente niños, en los países en desarrollo. A cambio, los dadores recibieron una pluma y un arco para dárselos a aquellos a quienes desearan felicitar.Jean Willard, directora de voluntarios jubilada, que organizó la feria alternativa de San Lucas el 11 de diciembre, dijo que ella toma en consideración toda una serie de asuntos cuando  invita a las agencias internacionales y locales a participar en el evento anual.“Siempre tratamos de hacer algo en lo que respecta a la educación, concentrándonos en los Objetivos de Desarrollo del Milenio, y ponemos un marcado énfasis en la salud así como en la vivienda y en los ministerios urbanos” comentó en una reciente entrevista telefónica desde su casa.Por ejemplo, $50 compraba una cuna portátil para familias de bajos ingresos a través de un programa local de Cribs for Kids [Cunas para niños]. Las familias que no podían comprar cunas estaban durmiendo con sus hijos y la incidencia del síndrome de la muerte infantil súbita o SMIS  era mayor que en otras poblaciones, abundó ella.De nuevo el programa NetsforLife de Ayuda y Desarrollo Episcopales fue un artículo que se vendió bien; otras ofertas incluían el programa Escuela para Niñas en Kenia de WISER , así como ayudas a familias de niños sometidos a trasplantes de médula ósea en un hospital local y el programa Crayons to Calculator, que facilita materiales escolares a los maestros en distritos de bajos ingresos.En $11,000 aún sin terminar el conteo, Willard dijo que las recaudaciones provenientes de la feria “aumentaron de manera espectacular” este año a pesar del descenso económico.Ella está totalmente convencida de que “los que tienen” necesitan compartir con aquellos a los que “no les va tan bien. Es una manera de brindarles oportunidades a personas que podrían no entrar en Internet y donar, y esto les da un rostro. Es un mercado en un nivel más personal para ayudar a abordar estas necesidades y a pensar más conscientemente en esta manera de hacer regalos durante las fiestas”.Y después.Las ferias de regalos alternativos “son un concepto que me gustaría ver expandido”, dijo ella. “Es muy fácil montar una: unos cuantos correos electrónicos y unas cuantas llamadas telefónicas. Las organizaciones sin fines de lucro están ahí, a la espera de una oportunidad, y es bastante fácil para otras iglesias el hacerse partícipes.—La Rda.

Met police’s HR revamp tackles skills shortages

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. The Metropolitan Police force is revolutionising its HR practices in a driveto retain staff and improve its crime detection rate.The strategy, being rolled out over five years and based around acustom-designed software system, will be adopted by all 43 forces across thecountry.The aim is to identify and utilise employee skills and experience. Police officers change jobs every few years once they have completed their”tenure”, but until now they have not been skills-matched to jobs.This has resulted in wasted talent and massive spending on training toredress the balance, according to the force.”We have tight budgets and we need to be more sophisticated in the waywe use our resources,” said Police Commissioner John Stevens at theinitiative launch last week. “We do not know where our skills are. We have not been very good atdoing that.”From the end of the year appraisal data will be fed into the computer systemallowing personnel to match skills to posts. It will also allow HR to identifyskills gaps so that recruitment and training can be more accurately targeted.HR director Pat Woods added that automating administrative jobs will savetime and money. For example, the time it takes to complete appraisals will becut by 50 per cent.”We have been concentrating on getting processes right,” she said.”That is important, but we want the HR function to be a strategic businesspartner with local managers.”By Dominique Hammond Met police’s HR revamp tackles skills shortagesOn 15 Feb 2000 in Police, Personnel Today Comments are closed.

Patriots’ Julian Edelman says Super Bowl win, MVP honors ‘hasn’t sunken in yet’

first_img Beau Lund Written by FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailMaddie Meyer/Getty Images(ATLANTA) — NFL wide receiver Julian Edelman missed all of last year recovering from an injury. This year, not only did he rejoin his New England Patriots, but the team won Super Bowl LIII and Edelman received MVP honors Sunday night. “I didn’t see that coming, really,” Edelman, who was still in Atlanta Monday, told ABC News’ Good Morning America. “I was just so happy we won the game. It’s tough football. We had a resilient group out there that just kept hitting at the door and finally it broke when it had to and we were able to sneak away with a win.” The Patriots beat the Los Angeles Rams, 13-3, to capture the team’s sixth Super Bowl victory. Edelman, who led the team with 10 receptions for 141 yards, credited the defense with the win. “Our defense played lights out,” he said of the defense, which kept the league’s top offense without a touchdown. Edelman called the win “awesome” and said he was still “excited” — but also tired. “I’m just happy, I’m content,” he said, “and I’m exhausted.” “They’re like children, you love them all the same,” Edelman said of his wins. “That’s at least what my parents told me but I’m pretty sure they like my sister the best. Darn you, mom and dad.” Less than 12 hours after the win, Edelman added that he was still coming to terms with it. “This one hasn’t even sunken in yet, honestly, so we’ll see,” he said. “Next one’s my favorite one.” Edelman’s quarterback and teammate Tom Brady congratulated him with a hug after the game. “When you play professional football … you spend more time with these guys in the locker room than you do with your family for 8 months of the year and you know guys in and out,” he said. “It’s almost like a marriage. This isn’t just with me and Tom. This is with multiple guys.” Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Letting agents warned to brace for upheaval when eviction bans ends

first_imgLetting agents are to face a wave of re-possessions and abandoned tenancies when the evictions ban ends on 31st May, landlords have warned.Some 840,000 tenants are now behind with their rent, many of whom are so hopelessly in debt that there is little chance of them ever catching up, the National Residential Landlords Association (NRLA) says.It also predicts that landlords and agents will face a huge referencing challenge as many tenants’ credit scores are significantly damaged by rent arrears and records of non-payment.This will make finding new homes to rent even harder and drive a boom in alternatives to referencing including higher rents and a surge in demand for guarantor schemes.Of the landlords that the NRLA canvassed, 60% said they were owed rent and that 39% said these arrears were continuing to grow as the pandemic drags on.The likelihood of tenants being evicted from properties is also receding – despite the government allowing exemptions to the most recent evictions ban, the snails pace court system means it is taking a year on average to evict a tenant, on average.Virtual courtsBen Beadle (left), Chief Executive of the NRLA, says the only solution is for the government to offer tenants and landlords financial help to clear rent arrears, and for the court system to utilise virtual courts more to speed up the hearings process.“Ben Beadle, Chief Executive of the National Residential Landlords Association, said: “While many landlords and tenants have worked well in responding to the challenges posed by the pandemic, we are now at a crunch point.“As the country follows the roadmap out of lockdown, so too emergency measures in the rental market will need to be eased.”Read more about evictions ban.National Residential Landlords Associatio NRLA March 26, 2021Nigel Lewis2 commentsJohn Socha, Orchard BMS Ltd Orchard BMS Ltd 26th March 2021 at 3:02 pmBeing a landlord is to be a soft target for the government.This is a “crowd pleasing” administration.Some years ago the now defunct National Federation of Residential Landlords (NFRL) took the DSS (now DWP) to court on the advice of an angry landlord, who fought the case. NFRL underwrote the court costs.Six cases were taken to court, NFRL lost five of the six.The DSS simply changed the regulations the day after they lost in court. Just a waste of time and money.NFRL, on my advice, ceased taking the government to court.It was a waste of members funds then, it still is, now.Not to understand how Government works and how they can change the rules in 24 hours is not to understand how the your business can be impacted by a political whim.Log in to ReplyPossession Friend, Possession Friend Possession Friend 26th March 2021 at 11:40 amThe NRLA should have led Legal Action against the Govt last year ! – not waiting for it to get to this stage.Pathetically weak and doesn’t represent Landlords interests.
