#OxHustings at St Anne’s

first_imgThe first concern raised by the student audience was housing prices, with the fact that this area needed 24-30,000 a year yet only has a capacity for 10,000. Copley partly blamed the constraints of land supply and informed the audience that Labour would work towards changing the regulations of getting money to build affordable housing. Moran stated that “housing is a macro-issue”, revealing Liberal Democrat plans to build 300,000 more houses across the country and aiming for a 42 per cent increase in housing in the next 15 years. Meanwhile Sanders argued that this was a “very simple supply-demand issue” with a ratio of 16:1 for the price of housing compared to outrunnings in Oxfordshire.When the discussion moved to social inequality, Copley stated that Labour was committed to enforcing the living wage and increasing the minimum wage and criticised tax dodging. Moran struck back, telling the crowd “a little bit of inequality is a good thing or we have nothing to aspire to. Just like a little bit of inflation is good.”The relationship with the SNP came up. Sanders told the audience that “the future with Scotland has to do with the decency of this government.” Copley addressed the issue less directly, criticising the “broken and alienating” character of politics. Moran told the audience that “we would be willing to work with anyone other than UKIP”.Immigration was a hot topic, though consensus reigned that immigration is a good thing. Moran said the Liberal Democrats wanted to re-introduce entrance checks while Copley said Labour pledged to employ 1,000 extra border staff. However, Sanders said the Green Party’s policy “is fairly relaxed. There is no policy to kick people out. We are not worried about immigration.”The NHS came up last. Moran told us that the Liberal Democrats want to endorse the ‘Five way forward view’ published by NHS England last year to unify healthcare provision. Copley was more radical; repeal of the Health and Social Care Act. Sanders chipped into this onslaught on the 2012 NHS, pledging to end ‘privatisation.’Hannah Lovell, co-chair of OULC, spoke to Cherwell about the importance of the event, commenting,“[They bring] politics more to life more often than not. The closest people get to politicians is watching Prime Minister’s questions.”In response to the Conservative candidate not turning up, Lovell said “it is pretty shocking especially as these are her local constituents. She did not even bother to send a replacement.” General election hustings took place at St. Anne’s college on Monday evening with the local constituency candidates running in the upcoming General Election.Three of the Oxford West and Abingdon candidates were present, including Sally Copley (Labour), Layla Moran (Liberal Democrat) and Larry Sanders (Green Party). The UKIP candidate Alan Harris declined to attend and the local Conservative MP Nicola Blackwood was unable to attend due to Parliamentary duties. The event was chaired by the Principal of St. Anne’s College, Tim Gardam, and approximately 50 students attended the town-hall style event.The seat was a closely fought Tory-Lib Dem marginal at the last election, with the Conservative candidate, Nicola Blackwood, winning by 176 votes. Polling by Lord Ashcroft last summer suggested that the Tories now lead in the seat, on 38%, with the Lib Dems not far off the pace on 30% and Labour some way behind, on 18%. UKIP polled at 9%, the Greens 4%.The Labour candidate, Copley, began her five minute speech by quoting John Lennon, “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.” She said that her two main aims were to tackle the NHS, inequality and living costs, emphasising that the cuts under the current government have led to a dramatic increase in poverty and inequality and claiming that all Labour proposals were financially achievable. She praised Ed Miliband for standing up for ordinary working people and concluded that this was “a fascinating seat”.The Liberal Democrat representative, Moran, then claimed that this was a centre-left seat, the sort of seat which will decide the outcome of the general election. She also stated that “whatever people think, this coalition government was stable”, asking for people not to judge them “on the one mistake but the 75 per cent of the rest of the manifesto we pushed through.” She said she was proud of the Liberal Democrats for introducing a new system of progressive tuition fees and pushing forward gay marriage.The final candidate to speak, Sanders, stated that the Green Party’s top priorities were inequality and the NHS. He criticised the fact that one percent now own nearly 50 per cent of the world’s wealth as well as the fragmentation and privatisation of the NHS. Sanders also said that “climate change will destroy the livelihood of 10s of millions of people”. He concluded by arguing that Labour and the Liberal Democrats have been a disappointment to most of their people.last_img read more

It follows the Foreign Secretary’s recent visit to Oman where both Foreign Ministers signed the Comprehensive Joint Declaration on Enduring Friendship. As a longstanding friend of Oman, Sir Alan Duncan, Foreign and Commonwealth Office Minister of State for Europe and the Americas, also joined the meeting and chaired several sessions.With wide representation from across Whitehall, discussion covered many topics, including foreign policy, defence, the economy, tourism, education and health, as well as the Comprehensive and Joint Defence Agreements.Speaking at the meeting, Minister Field noted: Media enquiries These Working Groups are always important occasions to reflect on our cooperation and discuss issues of common interest. This one took place at a particularly significant moment, coming hot on the heels of the signature of the Joint Defence Agreement between Defence Ministers, which in turn followed the hugely successful Saif Sareea 3, our biggest ever bilateral military exercise.center_img Follow the Foreign Office on Instagram, YouTube and LinkedIn Follow the Foreign Office on Twitter @foreignoffice and Facebook Further information Both were vivid demonstrations of our commitment to mutual security and the incredible warmth and closeness of our bilateral relationship.

Dead & Company Honors A Classic Grateful Dead Show In Fantastic Eugene Debut [Photos/Videos]

first_imgLoad remaining images Photo: Dave Vann On Saturday night, Dead & Company made their highly awaited debut at Eugene, OR’s Autzen Stadium, the beloved college town stadium (go Ducks!) which the Grateful Dead frequented over the course of their career.The Grateful Dead 5/3/1994 – Autzen Stadium, Eugene OR © Dave Vann 1994Dead & Company 6/30/2018 – Autzen Stadium, Eugene OR © Dave Vann 2018The band started strong with “Deal”, a song that has consistently shined in the Dead & Co arena. The set continued at a faster-than-usual pace with a “Me and My Uncle” quickie. During a pause after the slow-and-steady “Here Comes Sunshine” that followed, Bob Weir commented cheekily, “for all of you folks out there listening on the radio, this is called ‘dead air,’” prompting approving cheers from the crowd.Dead & Company – “Deal” [Pro-Shot][Video:]Weir continued at the helm from there, leading the band through “Black Throated Wind”, his vocal tone as clear and true as it’s been all tour. Another strong Dead & Co first set go-to, “Cold Rain and Snow”, came next, John Mayer commanding lead vocals as the band nailed their harmonies and Jeff Chimenti pushed the song to a peak from behind his organ.“So we’re gonna do another folk song,” noted Weir as he began a plucky “Peggy-O”, with Mayer adding a fittingly tender solo. The bluesy swing of “Sugaree”—another tried-and-true Mayer-led Dead & Co vehicle—came next, the stadium crowd shaking it as the band guided the extended rendition through a number of emotional peaks and valleys.To cap set one, the band kicked into “One More Saturday Night”, the crowd cheering perhaps less for the tune itself than for the fact that it wouldn’t occupy the second set closer/encore slot, as it had on each Saturday night this tour aside from the rain-shortened Camden night 2 (though a printed setlist had the classic Bobby tune scheduled as the encore for that show, too).After a break, Dead & Company returned for set two with big plans in mind, diving straight into the transitive nightfall of “Dark Star”. Following extended improv segments before and after the opus’ first verse, the band steered into Marty Robbins‘ “El Paso”, an apparent nod to the Grateful Dead’s famous concert in nearby Veneta, OR on 8/27/72, when they also  opened their final (third) set with a memorable “Dark Star” > “El Paso”. [That show was immortalized in concert doc Sunshine Daydream, released for the third-annual Grateful Dead “Meet-Up At The Movies” in 2013, in case you wanted to relive it]. As has become a habit for Dead & Company, the band moved back into “Dark Star” for verse two after their “El Paso” detour.Dead & Company – “Dark Star” [Verse 1, Pro-Shot][Video:]Even with an extended “Dark Star” sandwich in the rearview, the meat of set two was still to come. “St. Stephen” was up next and saw the band cast their lines deep into uncharted waters, winding into a funky groove while steadily building sonic tension. With their minds still set on the old days, the band then moved into “William Tell Bridge” and, finally, “The Eleven”, marking just the second time Dead & Co has completed the full Grateful Dead live suite after its debut in June at Citi Field in New York.A lengthy, intricately textured “Drums/Space” exploration followed before, at long last, the iconic opening notes of “Morning Dew” echoed through the stadium. Just the second Dead & Co rendition of the Bonnie Dobson-penned classic on the summer, this “Morning Dew” packed plenty of its noted punch, Mayer’s guitar piercing through to lend the song its familiar emotional weight.From there, an upbeat “Turn On Your Lovelight” dance party brought the set to a close with its first appearance in a Dead & Co setlist since last summer in Boulder, CO. Finally, a heartfelt “Brokedown Palace” sing-along in the encore slot served as the perfect send-off after a fantastic set.A pair of appearances at Shoreline Amphitheatre in the Grateful Dead’s native San Francisco Bay Area awaits the band this Monday and Tuesday, July 2nd and 3rd.

Leadership Matters: 6 practices to build a motivated workforce

first_img continue reading » 13SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr As nice as it would be, it is unrealistic to expect your whole workforce to be motivated all the time. However, a few simple practices can help build an environment in your credit union where employees are most likely to be motivated over the long term.The stakes are high: The overall cost of employee disengagement is estimated between $450 billion and $550 billion every year. Follow these six practices to ensure that you are not unknowingly draining the motivation from your employees.1. Build line of sight into your operating rhythm.Line of sight, the linkage between “what I’m working on” and “what the company is trying to do,” is fundamental to nurturing motivation. If employees—including those on the front line, interacting with members every day—don’t understand how they’re helping the credit union achieve its goals, they will feel unimportant at best and actively disengaged at worst.last_img read more

Finland’s VER turns net contributor to state budget after 6.4% return

first_imgInvestments at Finnish State Pension Fund VER returned 6.4% last year, with equities producing enough profit to offset a 1.8% loss on fixed income holdings.Reporting figures for 2013, the pension fund said the market value of investments rose to €16.3bn at the end of the year from €15.4bn at the end of 2012.VER transferred nearly €1.7bn to the state budget, up from €1.6bn the year before.The contribution was more than the pension contributions received by the fund of €1.63bn, the fund pointed out. The year before, the pension fund had received more than it transferred.Managing director Timo Löyttyniemi said: “VER has moved into the role of balancing pension costs.” This development was assumed to continue, he said.“Over the coming years, VER will increasingly balance the pressure of the rising state pension costs,” he said, as the return on investments in the short and the long term had remained at a good level.The 2013 return undercut the previous year’s 11.3% investment profit.The fund said the strong rise of the equity market was the most important factor contributing to overall profit.On the other hand, the year was particularly hard for fixed income investments, it said, with interest rates low as a result of expansionary central bank policies in the wake of the financial crisis.The fixed income loss of 1.6% compares with a profit of 8.8% generated by the asset class in 2012.Equities produced 18.2%, up from 16.8% the year before.The highest returns within equities came from investments in developed countries, VER said, with Finnish shares providing the highest returns at more than 30%. Returns on emerging market equities, however, finished mostly negative at the end of 2013.VER said it was a big net seller of equities at the end of the year following the strong performance.Allocation to the asset class subsequently stood at 39.9% at the end of December, only slightly higher than the 38.4% share the fund held a year before.last_img read more
