Bakers are among businesses in Chesterfield being urged to take part in an initiative to get locally sourced, high-quality food served at a hospital in the Derbyshire town.The Chesterfield Royal Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is teaming up with the Food and Drink Forum – a not-for-profit organisation based in the East Midlands – to appeal to local producers at an event on March 18th at the Coney Green Business Centre in Clay Cross.Later this year, the trust plans to open a new catering outlet in the main entrance to the hospital as part of a wider redevelopment project. The facility will offer healthy breakfasts, lunch and evening meals using locally produced bread, sandwiches, fruit, vegetables, meats, dairy produce and ready meals.Susan Tate, the Food and Drink Forum’s public sector food procurement initiative coordinator, said: “It is very good for local producers and the local economy in general when an organisation like a hospital has a strong commitment to local sourcing.”
Stuff co.nz 8 April 2016Family First Comment: Fantastic initiative. Pity the prostitution law has exacerbated the harm and risk. “It might be big money, the night life, bright lights, that sort of thing. The night life and the money is good, but it’s not worth it. The guilt that you carry inside – women don’t talk about that. They’ll say they’re fine and put on a mask but underneath, it’s not like that.” – Former prostituteWomen wanting to escape the sex trade will soon be able to seek refuge in Palmerston North after the creation of a safe house – the first facility of its kind in the country.A Palmerston North woman and former sex worker, who goes by the name Rosalie Haven, is behind the efforts to help get at risk women off the streets and into a safe environment.The house would be a safe place for women to seek shelter and receive help and support, including counselling and assistance with alcohol and drug addictions.She said a location had been secured but financial support and donations were still needed. When the house was up and running, about three women would be able to live there at one time.Haven said it could be really hard for women to leave the sex scene.“There could be a number on their life, there could be boyfriends, pimps dragging them back in. It’s a very hard thing to break from but you can do it.”“Instead of them taking hospital beds, which costs the taxpayers big money, if they were given redirection, love and kindness, they would be able to turn their lives around and put something back into the community.”READ MORE: http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/78713274/haven-to-help-sex-workers-being-launched-in-palmerston-north

The Sharks were able to claw a goal back, but they never got back even with Vegas after that start, falling 4-1.“For both those first two goals, when you turn the puck over, you’re going have it stuck in the back of your net nine times …
Why You Love Online Quizzes 7 Types of Video that will Make a Massive Impac… Silver is a database cacher, indexer and searcher backed by the NoSQL database Redis and released by the tech team behind the political blog Talking Points Memo. It’s open source and was created in Ruby.“Silver is designed to be a simple, lightweight wrapper for all your calls to a database that you want to cache or index with Redis,” writes Silver developer Erik Hinton. “It is completely database/web-service agnostic so you should be able to use if for anything you can imagine caching.”It sounds like this is only the beginning for open source from TPM. Hinton writes “Over the next few months — and, God-willing, for ages to come — we will be rolling out a series of open-source tools to contribute to the growing, fecund field of journo-coding/data-driven-reporting/technocratic inquiry.”It’s exciting to see a media organization not just using open source software, but also contributing. It’s not entirely unprecedented – the Lawrence Journal-World released Django, for instance – but it’s always appreciated. klint finley How to Write a Welcome Email to New Employees?

Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Tags:#YouTube What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces fruzsina eordogh I can’t count the times I’ve wanted to film a video blog or upload a video to YouTube, but didn’t because I was daunted by all the steps it would take to upload a video – including everything from editing it to locating a musical score. Not only are these steps daunting, but they take a lot of time. It seems I wasn’t alone, because YouTube has responded on Monday with the launch of YouTube Capture, a free app “designed for speed.” YouTube Capture not only makes uploading your video to YouTube easier, but also color corrects, stabilizes your video if your hands were shaking, and makes it easy to trim your video and add musical tracks. The app will even “remind you to rotate your phone to a horizontal position for filming, so your videos look high-quality and free of ‘Vertical Video Syndrome.’” Being as I am iPhoneless, I asked Dan Rowinski – ReadWrite’s mobile expert – to take the app for a test drive. Apart from having to sign up for a YouTube Channel, Rowinski found the speed and ease of the app useful. “I could have been through the whole process in minutes. Shoot, add a thing or two, and onto YouTube in seconds, really. If I was into that type of thing, that would seem pretty cool.”YouTube Capture is currently available only on the iPhone and iPod Touch, though in an official YouTube blog post announcing the app, software engineer Reed Morse wrote the team is working on making the app available on Android soon. No word on if YouTube will make the app available for BlackBerry or Windows Phone 8. Related Posts The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology
The short answer to how to become a lifelong learner is never to stop learning. The question is valuable enough to deserve a more extended explanation and practical advice on the specifics.Shore Up Your WeaknessesIf you are going to spend time learning, you may want to focus your effort on areas where you are weak. Many people will tell you not to worry about your weaknesses and to focus on your strengths. Like anything else, there is a truth in that advice, but it is partial and devoid of context. If there are areas you need to increase your knowledge and skills to produce the positive results you want, those are good places to start.Maybe your success depends on you becoming a better, more effective leader. Reading books, taking courses, and asking for help from a coach or mentor can help level you up. Understanding concepts you are missing, recognizing the better choices that are available to you, and making better decisions will improve your results.There are salespeople and business people who know little about business outside of their company and their role. Even though their chosen professions are in business, they haven’t focused on learning things that might improve their results. If you lack business acumen, there are any number of ways to gain it, and in doing so, bettering your results and making yourself more valuable.Whatever your weakness, if it holds you back, start your lifelong learning there. But don’t end there.Follow Your InterestsBecoming a lifelong learner doesn’t mean that you must only study things that improve your business results. It also doesn’t have to be something that helps you be successful in the areas people commonly associate with the idea of “success.” There is no reason not to learn more about some subject that interests you. Not only will you enjoy it, but it will also make you a more well-rounded, more interesting, and a better conversationalist.Maybe you want to learn some form of art, like drawing or painting. Perhaps you’ve always wanted to study acting. I am right now being tutored in defensive strategies in the game of football, as well as learning to print the way architects write on their plans. I know not how these things will ever be useful to me, except maybe making my writing on something on whiteboards other people can read and understand.If something interests you, if it captures your attention, then it’s worth spending time to learn. Your interest is enough to make it a worthwhile use of your time, even if no one other than you believes it is worth your time.Pull on a ThreadSometimes when you are learning something, you bump into something else that interests you. The one thing leads you to another. You pull on the thread, and you keep pulling.Your study of leadership connects you to human psychology, which leads to organizational development, which leads to cognitive biases and their connection to poor decisions. Your learning on poor decisions leads you to how large organizations fail. This isn’t a path you would design for yourself, but because you pulled the thread, you uncovered other areas of interest.In 1995, I picked up a book called The Lucifer Principle: A Scientific Expedition Into the Forces of History by Howard Bloom. The book led me to read additional books about memetics (memes, the way ideas spread, not cute cat videos), which eventually brought me to evolutionary psychology (or paleo-psychology as it was known then). This path eventually led me to Integral Theory, an area of learning I am still vigorously pursuing.If you want to be a lifelong learner, follow your interests, and when you run into something that captures your attention, follow that path.Apply Your LearningIt’s helpful to know things that are not directly related to your domain or area of expertise. Even though you may not recognize the value of something that has your interest now, reading, studying, and continuing to learn helps you become a lateral thinker, connecting disparate ideas into something useful.John Boyd, a fighter pilot and the most profound military strategist of the last century, used to challenge people with a thought experiment. You have a motorboat and a set of skis, a tank with treads and guns, and a bicycle with wheels and handlebars and gears. What can you make with these items? Boyd, a lateral thinker, would produce an image of a snowmobile, an object most people would not consider.One strategy I have developed about leveraging time in sales comes from clock management in football (the American version). If you have the ball, you can take time off the clock, depriving them of time and creating a competitive advantage. What you might believe doesn’t have any practical application or value often turns out to be something beneficial later, even when its value isn’t apparent.As human knowledge continues to grow exponentially—and exponentially faster–becoming a lifelong learner is imperative. The only way to get lifelong learning wrong is by doing nothing.
