Reporting in: Compassion during the hard times

first_imgLast week I attended a meeting at the Bakers’ Villas in Epping. I was able to see first-hand the great work and care given to the elderly residents there, who have connections to the bakery trade.The National Association of Master Bakers also runs a Benevolent Fund to assist master baker families who need support through age, disability or other difficult circumstances. As a visiting almoner, it is always a great experience to distribute Christmas hampers each year.Caring and supporting each other during periods of hardship is something that craft bakers do all the time. During the floods last year, when some bakers’ premises were waterlogged, other bakers were quick to rally round and provide goods until production started again.We all have stories in our own areas, such as bakers falling sick and others providing goods to help the businesses keep going until the owners are well again. On one occasion, a fellow baker of mine had his main electricity cable severed by builders and, during the three days it took to repair, he and his small staff took over my bakery during the night, bringing all their own flour and ingredients with them and using our ovens and equipment. They vanished by 4am with their newly baked goods, just before our bakers were due to start.Craft bakers are a breed apart, competitive in the marketplace but always eager to help each other during times of difficulty. Compassion and friendship are some of the greatest values that we can have.last_img read more

News story: Interested parties invited to provide information on protests outside abortion clinics

first_imgWork has already progressed to evaluate measures in place in other countries, such as buffer zones around clinics, with policing and healthcare partners providing further evidence for consideration.The review is considering protests only, and will not consider any aspects of the Abortion Act 1967 which makes abortion legal in the United Kingdom.All members of the public or organisations, who have experience of protest activity outside abortion clinics, are invited to contribute evidence to the review. You can complete the questionnaire online, or alternatively evidence can be provided directly to [email protected] contributions must be received by 19 February 2018. An abortion is an incredibly personal decision for anyone to take, and so it is completely unacceptable for women to face harassment or intimidation for exercising their legal right to healthcare advice and treatment. While everyone has a right to peaceful protest, this review is about ensuring the police, healthcare providers and local authorities have the right powers to protect women making these tough decisions. The review is assessing if more needs to be done to protect those seeking medical assistance and covers: the scale, frequency and nature of protests and the powers police have to manage them the laws to protect people from harassment and intimidation the public’s right to peaceful protest and exercise of freedom of speech, within the law international comparisons given that similar protests have taken place in Australia, France, Canada and the United States The Home Office is seeking views from interested parties about alleged harassment and intimidating behaviour near abortion clinics in England and Wales.It is the latest step in the review, announced by Home Secretary Amber Rudd in November, following reports that women have experienced intimidation from protesters when visiting family planning clinics to seek information, advice and services from medical professionals.To understand the scale and nature of these protests, the Home Office is seeking evidence from policing partners, healthcare providers and local authorities as well as inviting contributions from groups protesting outside abortion clinics and people who have sought medical assistance or advice.Home Secretary Amber Rudd said:last_img read more

Three payment themes for credit unions from Card Forum 2017

first_img“Keep Austin Weird” is the Texas city’s official slogan. It fits, given the unique experiences you may come across there, like trailer park eateries, grown people riding tricycles, eclectic art and more!What some consider weird, others embrace as innovative. It’s a matter of perspective. The same holds true for what’s happening in the payments landscape for credit unions. It’s hard not to notice the similarities between the city and the new developments and insights we picked up at Card Forum 2017 there this week.Year after year, Card Forum continues to grow as one of the leading payment conferences in the world. Leaders from card networks, processors, disruptors and financial institutions are present, and networking opportunities abound. At CUNA Mutual Group, we especially appreciate the conference for recognizing the unique needs of credit unions. The show dedicates an entire half-day summit to people who are part of the movement.After three days of taking in all the information, here are the key takeaways: continue reading » 19SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Boosting employee morale while working from home

first_img 8SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,John Pettit John Pettit is the Managing Editor for CUInsight.com. John manages the content on the site, including current news, editorial, press releases, jobs and events. He keeps the credit union … Web: www.cuinsight.com Details Hopefully you’re staying in touch with friends and family, as well as your coworkers during this COVID-19 crisis. If you live alone, the last couple of months have probably felt like an eternity. And remember, if you’re struggling during this stay at home period, your employees are feeling it too. So how can you turn things around? If you’re looking for a few ways to boost employee morale during this quarantine period, here are a few ideas to consider…Remind them of the good they’re doing: Your staff is having to work from home, but at least they’re working. If you feel morale slipping, one surefire way to turn it around is to remind them that not only are they still fortunate enough to work, but they wake up every day with the opportunity to help and encourage members who may be a lot worse off. Members really need their credit union right now and it has to be a great feeling when you can make a difference, no matter how great or small.Don’t be workaholics: When you’re working from home, it’s really easy to sit at your desk from sunrise until sunset. Hopefully, you’re not doing this too often, but when you can’t be out-and-about, you can burn out fast. Encourage your employees to get out and go for a walk or take time during lunch hours to share a meal with a friend or coworker over FaceTime. Some good laughs are a great remedy for the stuck-at-home blues. Maybe your staff can even watch a show together. Find out if there’s any common titles on your binge list and have a Zoom happy hour every Friday to find out what everybody thought.Find ways to keep learning: When you’re growing as an employee, you don’t feel like you’re standing still. This work from home period is a great opportunity for you to encourage your employees to find areas where they’d like to grow, and help them find ways to learn online. As your employees’ value grows, so will their morale. Education is a perfect option when there’s not much to do after hours.last_img read more

Here’s What To Do If Your Kids Are Overweight Or Obese

first_imgHuffington Post 30 September 2016Family First Comment: Good constructive helpful tips. 1. Expose your kids to a variety of healthy foodsIf your children are used to always eating chips, cakes, biscuits and fast food, then it’s no wonder why this is all they want. Instead, expose them to colourful whole foods like vegetables, fruits, whole grains like brown rice, and nuts and seeds.2. Be a role modelYou can’t expect your child to eat healthy if you don’t. Children learn by imitation, so teach your children how to eat healthy by doing so yourself.3. Follow the dietary guidelinesDespite the fact that the Australian Dietary Guidelines are simple and publicly accessible, we’re just not following them.“Our kids need to eat certain foods, and vegetables is one of them. We need awareness around these things, this is really important,” Kamper said.4. Change the environment and your attitudeMaking changes is much more difficult when the environment and attitude towards being healthy is negative. This goes for the environment not just in your home but in your own mind.5. Focus on home cooking“The research also shows the more home cooked meals we have, the less likely we will be obese. So, it’s about not getting those packaged foods and takeaway,” Kamper said.6. Make veggies the heroDon’t be put off by the possibility of your child not eating veggies. Be consistent and include a variety of vegetables often, and enjoy them together as a family.7. Practise mindful eatingWe spend more time in front of the TV and computer screens than ever before, and naturally we eat our meals this way. Kamper urges people to stop mindless eating in order to help you and your children feel more satisfied and full.READ MORE: http://www.huffingtonpost.com.au/2016/09/29/heres-what-to-do-if-your-kids-are-overweight-or-obese/?utm_hp_ref=au-foodlast_img read more
