HR must act now to stem the tide of internet abuse

first_imgHR must act now to stem the tide of internet abuseOn 9 Jul 2002 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos. Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. Before the internet, business technology was often exploited for personaluse – but it provided few opportunities for entertainment. The web has changedall that. Now office systems give staff access to shopping, sport, gambling, gameplaying and so-called adult entertainment. And, as our survey shows, many staffhave extended their interest in pornography into office hours. The principle behind banning porn at work is a no-brainer: it is neverappropriate for staff to download material which could cause offence to otheremployees. Offensive material, and racist content falls into this category too,can damage the reputation of the company and leave the employer open to legalaction. And when staff break the law the employer must take disciplinaryaction. The challenge for HR departments is the sheer scale of internet abuse. Itshows that it is not enough to have water-tight policies – HR must alsocommunicate these regularly to staff. The emphasis should be on preventionrather than policing, but those who continue to breach policy do need to bedisciplined. Motor giant Ford took a sensible approach in March this year when it gavestaff a two-week amnesty to remove offensive material from business systems,and also gave instructions on how to delete downloaded files. There are times when personal use of the company’s business systems isreasonable – some HR teams actively encourage staff to use the internet foronline shopping as a way to boost the use of e-HR, for example. In these cases,HR must strike a balance between ensuring good levels of productivity on theone hand, and helping employees balance the demands of work and home on the other.But where porn and racist material is concerned, HR’s job is clear cut: itmust get the message across loud and clear that downloading offensive materialwill not be tolerated. last_img read more

Holloway: I’m deadly serious

first_img He is known just as much for his quick wit and one-liners in press conferences and interviews as he is for having now guided two teams into the top flight, but now the Bristol native wants his achievements to speak for him. “I’m trying to talk in a way so people don’t think I’m funny any more, I’m fed up with that,” said the 50-year-old. “I’m not a comedian, I’m a football manager – at the end of the day that is what I do. You will have my interviews every week and they will be serious and I will be talking about football.” It may be hard for Holloway, whose side take on Tottenham on Sunday, to take things lightly at the moment as he works to add more depth to his squad and avoid the fate that befell Blackpool, the last team he guided into the top flight. Relegated after just one season in which the Seasiders drew universal praise for their open and expansive play, Holloway is putting in the hours as he strives to find the right players to help Palace survive. “You can ask my wife what time I finish and what time I start at the moment, she will tell you,” he added. “I’m watching clips of people and trying to play catch-up. I have watched Tottenham and I know what I’m doing. But I’ve also watched players and I don’t think at this time last season Palace would have had a scouting network across Europe – it is tiring and it is hard work.” One signing of sorts that could prove invaluable to Holloway is the ProZone software that allows him access to statistics on player performances and fitness levels. It is the type of system managers such as Sam Allardyce have utilised for some time and Holloway is hoping it can make a difference for the Eagles this season. “I have a very helpful tool here where I can get a lot of information about how far people run, what miles they cover and what passing patterns they have got,” he added. “I will have a lot more information on who we are playing against and hopefully I will be able to get bodies in the way and break up their rhythms and break things up. “You have got to learn everything you can if you are not going to be as strong as the opposition, so that is what I will be doing.” Crystal Palace manager Ian Holloway has had enough of being seen as the class clown and is determined to be taken more seriously as he prepares for a return to life in the Barclays Premier League.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Dino Fossils Generate Overblown Claims

first_img04/10/2006), inventing feathers out of thin air.  This time, it was justified on the basis of a new paper in Nature that claims to remove an obstacle in the dinosaur-bird evolution story.1  Doubters had pointed to differences in the three forward-pointing toes.  With dinosaurs, it was toes 1, 2 and 3 that were retained; while in birds, it was toes 2, 3 and 4.  The new fossil Limusaurus inextricabilis found in China shows 4 toes:“So here you have a form that’s reduced the first finger, and it is right in this period of transition in the evolution of theropods,” Clark said.    The find helps fill in what had been seen as a “chink” in the otherwise widely supported theory that birds descended from dinosaurs, said Hans Dieter Sues, a paleontologist at Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History who was not involved in the research.    “Having a fossil that shows that there are three digits plus this sort of little residual digit … is almost a perfect structural intermediate” linking theropods and birds, he said.Perhaps this is why National Geographic felt justified in feathering their artwork.  The paper argues that researchers may have simply mislabeled the digits.  With birds, the developmental stages can be observed; this is not possible with dinosaurs.  The tale of the toes, however, does nothing to remove other chinks in the dinosaur-to-bird theory: namely, theropods have lizard-hips instead of bird-hips, and birds have an immobile femur that is essential to proper function of the unique avian lung (see 06/09/2009).  The present article only relates to how nubs that turn into toes are to be numbered.  PhysOrg used the same paper to tell the “story of finger evolution.”    National Geographic reported on another fossil dinosaur named Psittacosaurus gobiensis.  Apparently some dinosaurs felt like a nut.  They deduced from the beak and skull that it had the force to crack hard nuts.  Without answering how all the structural changes occurred through an evolutionary mechanism, the article simply stated that evolution happens when the opportunity arises: “animals that take advantage of their environments—in this case, eating what few other animals could—have plentiful resources and are therefore more likely to branch into more species.”  Evolutionarily speaking, good things happen to those who take advantage of their environments.    Speaking of birds, Live Science and Science Daily talked about how big a bird can get.  Argentavis magnificens was as big as a Cessna airplane.  Scientists think that the limiting factor was how long it took for the bird to molt (i.e., replace its flight feathers, which most birds do annually or semi-annually).  Feathers wear out from exposure to ultraviolet rays and bacteria.  Argentavis, they speculated, might have molted during one long fast each year.  These giant birds seem to exceed the weight limits for feathered flight.  They weighed around 150 pounds and had a wingspan of 23 feet.  The wingspan of today’s largest living flyer, the California condor, is about 10 feet.  The article on Science Daily shows a handsome bald eagle in flight.  Eagle wings can span 90 inches – one-third that of Argentavis, the record holder.1.  Xu, Clark et al, “A Jurassic ceratosaur from China helps clarify avian digital homologies,” Nature 459, 940-944 (18 June 2009) | doi:10.1038/nature08124.Remember that Darwinians are not above lying and distorting evidence to promote their agenda.  For decades, National Geographic has been adept at misleading the public with the power of suggestion and visualization.  Stay on your toes; forewarned is forewinged.(Visited 14 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

South Africa has a role in post-conflict development

first_img20 FebruaryThe important role that regional organisations can play in matters of peace and security has long been recognised. In Africa, the regional economic communities are increasingly taking on a role in responding to matters of peace and security, including post-conflict reconstruction and development (PCRD).However, as intra-state conflict rises, spills over borders and often resurges after appearing to die down, implementing PCRD remains a daunting challenge. The Southern African Development Community (SADC) is an important actor in matters of peace and security, but, at present, it lacks the capacity to implement PCRD.A new paper by the Institute for Security Studies (ISS) finds that while there is some opportunity for South Africa to enhance and facilitate PCRD through SADC, the organisation must first overcome a number of challenges.South Africa plays a significant role in matters of peace and security on the African continent. It contributed to the evolution of the African Union (AU) and the African Peace and Security Architecture, and also facilitated the AU’s decision to establish the African Capacity for Immediate Response to Crises. South Africa was also involved in various mediation efforts as a member of SADC, notably in Zimbabwe’s post-2012 electoral crisis and Madagascar’s constitutional mediation process. Even so, South Africa’s ability to implement PCRD in the region through its SADC membership has been constrained for various reasons.Firstly, it has to manage perceptions over its actions within SADC, so as not to arouse accusations of hegemony. Secondly, South Africa is inadequately represented within SADC structures. This could be attributed to a combination of SADC staffing rules, diplomats’ perceptions of Gaborone not being a prime posting, and South Africa’s tendency to be inconsistent in its foreign policy. Thirdly, SADC espouses a state-centric, rather than human-centric definition of security. This makes post- conflict development difficult even at a conceptual level.In addition to this, SADC’s main policy documents – namely the Regional Indicative Strategic Development Plan (RISDP) and the Strategic Indicative Plan for the Organ (SIPO) – do not provide an easy basis from which to operate. Both of these have undergone review and version two of SIPO has already been adopted. The documents are long, extremely ambitious, and would arguably be better if merged into one.To an extent, both the RISDP and SIPO II focus on promoting peace and security through integration.There are a number of opportunities for South Africa to implement PCRD through SADC. South Africa has an impressive track record in conflict resolution; it has the largest economy of all the SADC member states; and also has substantial military power and experience to offer SADC. South Africa is also establishing the South African Development Partnership Agency, which could potentially partner with the SADC Development Fund for implementing PCRD.As the current head of the SADC Organ on Politics, Defence and Security Co- operation, South Africa should use this opportunity to positively influence the organisation and involve more of the member states to achieve a SADC brand (as opposed to an individual member-state brand) of multilateral PCRD implementation. However, in moving forward, South Africa must also clarify its commitment to SADC through solid foreign-policy actions, such as sending well-trained diplomats to Gaborone.If SADC is to move forward, it needs to find a real post-liberation middle ground and achieve a unified agenda from which the organisation can operate.It is critical that SADC better communicates with international partners – once again an area where South Africa can provide valuable technical assistance, based on its domestic experience of establishing the Department of Performance Monitoring and Evaluation.While there is certainly a lot that South Africa can offer SADC, it also needs to demonstrate that it is committed to the organisation beyond merely incorporating that commitment in its foreign policy documents. As soon as SADC establishes a clear and logical policy basis from which to operate, it can also make great strides in its ability to respond to matters of peace and security in the region.Source: Institute for Security Studieslast_img read more

1983 World Cup: I did my job, says Kapil Dev

first_imgAfter the Indian team’s historic win over the West Indies at Lord’s, Kapil Dev, sipping champagne, spoke to INDIA TODAY’S Sreedhar Pillai. Excerpts: Q. How did a team which was written off even before the tournament started win the Prudential World Cup?A. India started the tournament as underdogs. But our fielding and team spirit saw us through to the final. I know the capabilities of my boys and understand where we stood in batting and bowling. It was the fielding that got us the Prudential Cup.Q. Any factors other than fielding?A. It was a team effort. No single individual is responsible. All of us collectively clicked as a team. Each and every member of the team did something or the other to ensure that we won.Q. Any particular individual you would like to single out?A. Not in particular. But Binny, Madan Lai and Mohinder bowled extremely well, while Yashpal and Mohinder saw that the batting never crumbled. But we were a little sad that our major batsman Sunil Gavaskar never clicked.Q. What about your own 175 not out against Zimbabwe ?A. Well, I did my job as captain, nothing more than that. When I came in to bat it was 9 for 4, which became 17 for 5. Then my only thought was to play for my country, and stay put for 60 overs and score a modest total of around 200.Q. Any special memories of that 175, which is a Prudential record?A. When I got to my hundred I was very happy to be the first Indian to score a hundred in the World Cup competition. Only much later did I realise that I had broken Glenn Turner’s record.advertisementQ. After being 17 for 5, didyou’tvarn your team for a dismal batting performance?A. No, I was feeling absolutely tired after that match against Zimbabwe. In fact, I told the boys, “You made me tired.”Q. How do you analyse India’s win, with their gentle medium pace bowling?A. Let me tell you that these medium pace.bowlers ridiculed by the critics were one of the major reasons for India’s winning the World Cup. All they did was bowl straight by keeping a good length and line. They never tried to bowl fast but English conditions favoured us. Our medium pacers were able to swing the ball around and with batsmen committing mistakes our fielders did the rest.Q. So you mean to say there was a lot of stress on fielding?A. In fact, the team was chosen with special stress on fielding. I had made it clear to everyone that I would not tolerate lack of effort. I can accept that batsmen will get out and that bowlers will get hit but I will not accept one who does not give his all in the field. For too long India’s fielding was considered a joke; not any more, I hope.Q. So the selectors have to be thanked for choosing a well-balanced team.A. The Prudential Cup has given India a big boost in one-day cricket. We had no extraordinary players. But we had bowlers who could bat right up to number eleven. It was the best one-day team that the country has ever produced and we seem to be improving more and more in this particular field.Q. Many people feel that India played West Indies better than any other side.A. The best thing that could have happened to us prior to the Prudential Cup was our visit to the West Indies. There we defeated them in Guyana in a one-day international. It was a turning point in our one-day cricket. And later we defeated them again at Old Trafford. Playing against the best in the world brings out the best in my boys.Q. What about Sunil Gavaskar?There were rumours that you dropped him after the first two games for reasons other than what were given out.A. Nothing but dressing-room, gossip. In fact we dropped him because he was injured. Even if he is out of form and slightly slow on the field we will include him because he is our main batsman. There is perfect harmony and rapport between us. Sometimes I go to him for advice. I am proud of Sunil and his achievements and I wish him good luck this winter to beat Bradman’s record.Q. Witt the same team be retained for the coming winter Test series against West Indies and Pakistan ?A. Test cricket is a different sort of cricket altogether. Some players who are good for one-day cricket may be a handicap in a Test match.advertisementQ. Any special request for the Indian cricket board after the Prudential Cup?A. They should introduce more oneday tournaments in domestic cricket and spot fresh talent to enable us to retain the next World Cup.Q. Some experts feel you are burning yourself out by playing for Northamptonshire in English county cricket.A. After playing professional cricket I have improved vastly and it has also helped me to be a successful captain. The West Indians and Pakistanis play oneday cricket so well because they play for English counties.Q. How would you compare yourself with Ian Botham?A. Ian is a great cricketer, Perhaps he is struggling a little at the moment. Who is best is not for me to say. But I know that I have extra incentive to do well when I play against him.Q. What about these rumours that an Indo-Pakistan eleven has been signed up to tour South Africa? Will you go?A. During the World Cup tournament even I’ve heard these stories. But so far nobody has approached me. Even if they approach me I will not go to South Africa. I love to play for my country more than anything else.last_img read more
