Moroccan Contractual Teachers to Keep Striking Until April 25

Rabat – Although the Moroccan Ministry of Education had said it would not take legal measures against striking contractual teachers if they returned to work on Monday, April 15, the teachers are continuing their strike until April 25.The contractual teachers’ five most representative unions held a first round of negotiations with the Ministry of Education on April 13. The unions stated that the government failed to meet contractual teachers’ primary demand, which is to be integrated into the public sector and for the government to end employment under fixed-term contracts. On March 9, the government proposed ending contracts, and permanently employing the teachers within regional academies, and guaranteeing them all the rights and labor protection permanent teachers have. Teachers refused the proposal.Read also: Education Ministry Reaches Agreement with Contractual Teachers to End ProtestsThe next round of negotiations is scheduled for Tuesday, April 23. But the dialogue will likely not result in any agreement between the government and the representatives of “the forcibly contracted teachers,” as they call themselves. In a statement, the National Coordination of the Forcibly Contracted Teachers (CNPCC) said it believes that the government will not act in favor of the contractual teachers to integrate them into the public sector. The coordination stated that the strike, in this case, will continue beyond April 25. On Sunday, Morocco’s Ministry of Education announced it had reached an agreement with the contractual teachers following a meeting with the five most representative education unions and human rights representatives.All parties agreed that contractual teachers would resume work starting Monday. However, some teachers are still protesting, but others resumed work.The protests started February 18-20, when hundreds of contractors took to the streets to denounce the government’s “disregard” for their needs, “poor” social dialogue negotiations, problems in education and healthcare, and the deterioration of their situation. read more

SAP among 3 companies competing to replace Phoenix

SAP Canada’s Bob Conlin is well aware that the word “Phoenix” connotes disaster, but the company is confident it has a solution for the federal government’s failing payroll and HR systems that have made headlines since 2016.“We have a tremendous amount of reputational risk at play here,” SAP Canada’s vice-president of public services Canada told IT World Canada shortly after government officials explained the next steps of the plan to replace Phoenix at a press conference. Alongside SAP, Ceridian, and Workday – international companies with Canadian offices – will compete to install what the government calls the “Next Generation HR and Pay Solution”.

The Phoenix payroll system… September 11th, 2017 Danny Bradbury @dannybradbury “We know what could happen, and we know what’s happened to the players on the other side that delivered the Phoenix program,” said Conlin.Those players, specifically IBM, was awarded the contract to update the government’s 40-year-old payment system in 2011. IBM had proposed a PeopleSoft-based system to replace the old one, but after countless issues and thousands of unpaid – or overpaid – government employees, the feds changed their tune, noting in its updated tender that “The Phoenix issues have shown that HR and pay are mutually dependent and don’t exist in isolation.”That means amalgamating human resource and payroll systems in a consistent manner, something the government opted not to do nearly a decade ago. It’s an “amazing technical challenge” according to Conlin.“Today you have the government with a litany of aged and almost out of service HR systems that are from many different companies that do things very different, like spreadsheets to something sophisticated like PeopleSoft. And they all manage employee records across departments differently. With a centralized payroll, you have to have all departments consolidate the information and normalize it in a way that the payroll system can consume it. That’s a huge task.“And as we saw, one of the world’s largest system integrators had to struggle with that, and with the other things that plagued the program.”Canada’s Treasury Board president Joyce Murray indicated a huge shift in terms of how the government is approaching this project.“We’ve learned the lessons of the past and have radically changed the way we are pursuing a modern, user-friendly and mobile HR and pay solution,” she said in a press release.For the past year, the government has been asking vendors to prove their worth and demonstrate the ability to navigate the complicated waters created by the disjointed HR and payroll systems. Insights were collected from thousands of employees on potential features of a new system, according to the treasury board, between January and April.“The next step will be to establish partnerships with one or more of the vendors for the co-design and the delivery of pilot projects, to test solutions against the real complexity of federal government HR and pay needs,” concluded the release.Conlin is confident that SAP, which has a significant presence in the Ottawa region with a wide-variety of clients, has the answers.“I know we can get this right.” read more

It is imperative for me to have 100% focus in helping our new coach with his transition at The Ohio State University this fall.”According to Bill Hancock, the executive director of the College Football Playoff, Smith was an “invaluable member” of the committee given his experience as both a former student-athlete, coach and collegiate administrator. “This is a significant time commitment, and we understand Gene’s need to focus on his primary responsibility on campus,” Hancock said.Iowa athletic director Gary Barta will replace Smith on the committee. read more

One in three people claiming sickness benefits have conditions which are fuelled

first_imgOne in three people claiming benefits because they are too sick to work have conditions which are fuelled by obesity, a government review has found.The report for the Department of Work and Pensions says obese people on benefits should be forced to attend sessions with a health advisor, in order to get more claimants back into work.Job centres should refer those with a weight problem to slimming classes, according to the review by Prof Dame Carol Black, former national director for work and health.The independent review calls for an investigation into the extent to which long-term sickness and absence from work is being driven by Britain’s obesity crisis.“We believe there is a long-term risk that obesity becomes an ill-defined, but widely accepted, reason for absence from work or receipt of benefits,” the report states. Every Job Centre Plus should be able to refer the obese to slimming classes, the new report says  We believe there is a long-term risk that obesity becomes an ill-defined, but widely accepted, reason for absence from work or receipt of benefitsAn Independent Review into the impact on employment outcomes of drug or alcohol addition, and obesity Obese woman  Our goal has been to find ways of overcoming the employment problems that people face when they are addicted to alcohol or drugs, or are obeseDame Carol Black More than one in three of the 2.3 million people in receipt of Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) – the key benefit for illness and disability – have conditions which can be driven by weight problems, the report found.“As obesity is clearly a risk factor for a host of health conditions that can lead to worklessness, and as the problem is growing, we believe that the Government should prioritise a thorough investigation of this issue,” it states.“We therefore recommend that the Government commission research to investigate the extent to which obesity plays a role in health-related benefit claims, in particular long-term ones.”The review calls for trials of schemes which force obese people claiming benefits to attend discussions with a healthcare professional before their claims are accepted. “We … recommend the Government trials a requirement for each claimant, early in their claim to benefit, to attend a discussion with a healthcare professional on the impact of their health condition on their ability to work to test the value of this approach and identify delivery issues,” it says.The report says similar approaches have worked for other health conditions and should now be extended to include obesity, as well as alcohol and drug dependency.The report also says that every Job Centre Plus should train advisors in addressing weight problems, referring cases to weight management services if obesity is identified as a barrier to work.The study says around 1,600 claimants with a health condition do so because their main disabling condition of obesity. Around one third spent three to five years on the DWP’s main benefits, the report says.But it says a far larger number had conditions which could be fuelled or exacerbated by obesity.center_img About 11 per cent of those with a body mass index over 40 – severely obese – have taken long-term sickness and disability, along with around 6 per cent of those with a BMI over 30.Below the threshold for obesity the figure is less than 3 per cent.  One quarter of all adults are obese, a figure which rises in areas of deprivation .Severely obese adults were 10 percentage points less likely to be in work than those who are not obese, the study found.While 15 per cent of claimants with diabetes had a BMI of 40 and over, and 8.8 per cent of those with the condition had a BMI between 30 and 40, just 0.3 per cent of those with the condition were of healthy weight, the research shows.One quarter of all adults are obese, a figure which rises in areas of deprivation .Severely obese adults were 14 per cent less likely to be in work than those who are not obese, the study shows.Professor Dame Carol Black said: “Our goal has been to find ways of overcoming the employment problems that people face when they are addicted to alcohol or drugs, or are obese.“After a searching inquiry we are clear that a fresh approach is needed, one that brings together health, social, and employment agencies in new collaborative ways, personalised to the circumstances of each individual.”The DWP said it would now consider the report.Tam Fry, from the National Obesity Forum, said job centre advisors should not be able to decide who was referred to weightloss classes.“This is a job for a GP,” he said. “I don’t want someone from a job centre without medical qualifications sending people on weightloss courses, they will have no idea whether the obesity is self-inflicted or the result of a metabolic disorder, or other medical complaint,” he said.Last year the Conservative manifesto said benefits might be reduced for those who refused help to treat health problems, including obesity and drug and alcohol addiction. The manifesto said: “We will make sure the hardest to help receive the support they need for a fulfilling life. We will review how best to support those suffering from long-term yet treatable conditions, such as drug or alcohol addiction, or obesity, back into work. People who might benefit from treatment should get the medical help they need so they can return to work. If they refuse a recommended treatment, we will review whether their benefits should be reduced.But on Monday the Prime Minister’s Official Spokesman said: “We want to support those suffering from long term treatable conditions back into work.”We are not looking to withdraw benefits from people because they are obese. Withdrawing benefits from obese people is not under consideration. “”During this review process it became clear that there was a consensus that mandating treatment could potentially lead to more people hiding their addictions rather than disclosing it. There were other legal and ethical concerns,” the spokesman said.  Job Centre Plus The report for the DWP estimates that 35 per cent of people receiving Employment and Support Allowance have conditions that may arise due to obesity Credit:PA  “We think it likely that obese people are claiming benefits for a different health condition.“We looked at the health conditions given for ESA and selected a wider set of conditions where obesity could be a risk factor. From this analysis, we estimate that up to 807,000 cases (35 per cent of the ESA caseload) have conditions that may arise due to obesity.”The study says the strength of variations between the different conditions and obesity varies.While the 28,000 cases claiming for diabetes had close links with obesity, the association between obesity and other conditions for which benefits were claimed was less clear-cut, it suggests.The research shows that those who are obese were far more likely to suffer from a host of related health conditions – including diabetes, high blood pressure, musculo-skeletal disorders, respiratory conditions, heart conditions, and mental health disorders.

Zytiga un nouvel espoir pour le cancer de la prostate

first_imgZytiga : un nouvel espoir pour le cancer de la prostate ?Un médicament commercialisé sous le nom de Zytiga permettrait de prolonger la vie des patients atteint de cancer de la prostate.  Lors de la 48ème conférence annuelle de l’American Society of Clinical Oncology, un des plus grand colloque sur le cancer, un nouveau traitement concernant le cancer de la prostate a été présenté.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?La molécule d’acétate d’abiratéron, commercialisé sous le nom de Zytiga par les laboratoires Johnson & Johnson, permettrait en effet de ralentir la propagation de cancers métastasés de la prostate chez près de 60 % des hommes ne répondant plus aux thérapies hormonales « Ce médicament prolonge des vies et donne aux malades plus de temps durant lequel ils ne ressentent pas de douleur résultant de la progression ducancer, » explique le Dr Charles Ryan, professeur de médecine clinique à l’Université de Californie à San Francisco.Pour cette molécule, un essai clinique a été menée avec 1.088 hommes, diagnostiqués de leur cancer de la prostate cinq ans auparavant en moyenne, dans 151 centres de traitement du cancer. Ce test s’est déroulé en double aveugle : la moitié des participants a pris un placebo avec du prédnisone, un stéroïde, tandis que l’autre partie a été traitée avec du Zytiga et également du prédnisone. “Dans le groupe du Zytiga, les malades ont eu un répit de près de 16 mois avant que leur cancer métastasé de la prostate n’empire de nouveau, comparé à 8,3 mois dans l’autre groupe” ajoute le Dr Ryan.Ce n’est pas tout, selon une étude clinique publiée le 16 mai par l’ASCO, le Zytiga a permis d’éliminer totalement ou en grande partie la tumeur aux premiers stades de développement chez certains hommes atteints d’une forme de cancer de la prostate à haut risque de s’étendre.Le Zytiga est donc un traitement très prometteur dans la lutte contre le cancer de la prostate, qui touche près de 70.000 personnes en France et notamment chez des malades ayant achevé sans succès de la chimiothérapie et se trouvant à un stade plus avancé de ce cancer.Le 4 juin 2012 à 17:00 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Derrick Kellier, says major developments are to take place shortly in the Jamaica banana industry, with an emphasis on production for the export market.Addressing the opening of the Hague Agricultural and Livestock Show in Falmouth, Trelawny, on February 18, Mr. Kellier said the developments would include putting more lands into banana cultivation, in order to take advantage of a thriving market in the United Kingdom.Mr. Kellier said while on a recent visit to the United Kingdom, discussions were held with major stakeholders with a view of getting more Jamaican produce, mainly ripe and green bananas, into that market. “I can report very good news. Coming out of our trip to England, there are expressions of interest from three major importers of bananas, ripe and green, to which we have started to respond,” the Minister said.He added that emphasis will be placed on getting more idle lands into banana production, with over 381 hectares of land being targeted. “We will provide input assistance through the All Island Banana Growers Association (AIBGA) from a special credit scheme. The Banana Board will be intensifying its programme geared towards training farmers to increase their traceability and certification standards in the 2015/16 fiscal year,” the Minister said.He noted that St. Mary is currently Jamaica’s leading banana-producing parish, and that efforts will be made to bring sections of western Jamaica back into banana production.“We urge farmers to be a part of this development and to work with us to ensure that we have the productive capacity and the output to serve these markets that are emerging,” he told the gathering.last_img read more

WASHINGTON TO WILMINGTON Congressman Seth Moulton Reintroduces ALS Disability Insurance Access Act

first_imgWASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senators Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) and Tom Cotton (R-AR) and Congressmen Seth Moulton (D-MA) and Peter King (R-NY) have reintroduced the ALS Disability Insurance Access Act, bipartisan legislation to eliminate the five-month waiting period before ALS patients can receive the Social Security Disability Insurance benefits they earned by contributing into Social Security. This legislation would build on previous steps by Congress and the Social Security Administration to accommodate the difficult prognosis for those diagnosed with ALS.Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, commonly known as ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a neurodegenerative disease affecting the ability of the brain to control muscle movements. Individuals with ALS progressively lose the ability to speak, walk, and breathe. The intended purpose of a five-month waiting period is to allow temporary conditions to reverse. However, there is currently no cure or treatment to halt or undo the effects of ALS, and some ALS patients lose their fight with the disease before ever receiving benefits. The ALS Disability Insurance Access Act would help alleviate some of the financial hardship that accompanies an ALS diagnosis, and support those living with ALS and their families.“I am proud to co-sponsor this bill to eliminate the waiting period for those battling ALS,” said Senator Whitehouse. “It takes tremendous courage from patients, family members, and friends to cope with an ALS diagnosis. I hope that as a simple act of humanity we can set aside bureaucratic considerations and allow Americans who face the extraordinary blow of this diagnosis to immediately receive the benefits they have earned.”“ALS is a progressive and disabling disease for which there is no cure. Those who suffer from this terrible disease endure enough pain, and they shouldn’t be subject to the usual waiting period for disability benefits—especially given their tragically short life expectancy,” said Cotton.“Nobody bravely fighting Lou Gehrig’s Disease should have to wait months for benefits that will help them confront the disease because of government red tape,” Representative Moulton said. “Every American pays into Social Security with the idea that we have each other’s backs and that those benefits will become available to us when we need them—whether it is because of an ALS diagnosis, a disability or simply to help make ends meet in retirement. This bill will help our country keep that promise.”“When battling an unforgiving and aggressive disease such as ALS, time is of the essence. That is why Congress must ensure that those diagnosed with this disease can immediately receive the SSDI benefits they have earned and try to mitigate the certain and devastating financial costs of their fight,” said Congressman King.“Over the course of a five-month waiting period, people living with ALS will have only experienced progressive loss of function and will have incurred significant expenses for care and treatment,” said Calaneet Balas, President and CEO of The ALS Association. “We urge Congress to pass this legislation and remove the arbitrary five-month waiting period that creates an unfair financial burden on people whose life expectancy is so tragically abbreviated. People with ALS have earned and should receive both Medicare and Social Security Disability Insurance benefits immediately. They simply don’t have months to wait.”In addition to Whitehouse and Cotton, the legislation is cosponsored in the Senate by Senators Michael Bennet (D-CO), Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Roy Blunt (R-MO), Cory Booker (D-NJ), John Boozman (R-AR), Sherrod Brown (D-OH), Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), Ben Cardin (D-MD), Bill Cassidy (R-LA), Susan Collins (R-ME), Chris Coons (D-DE), Kevin Cramer (R-ND), Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Kamala Harris (D-CA), Doug Jones (D-AL), John Kennedy (R-LA), Angus King (I-ME), Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), Patrick Leahy (D-VT), Ed Markey (D-MA), Martha McSally (R-AZ), Bob Menendez (D-NJ), Jeff Merkley (D-OR), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Jack Reed (D-RI), Jacky Rosen (D-NV), Mike Rounds (R-SD), Marco Rubio (R-FL), Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ), Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), Jon Tester (D-MT), Thom Tillis (R-NC), Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and Roger Wicker (R-MS).The companion legislation in the U.S. House of Representatives is cosponsored by 89 Members.(NOTE: The above press release is from Congressman Seth Moulton’s Office.)Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

Trump to form voter fraud commission

first_imgUS president Donald Trump. AFPUS president Donald Trump said Sunday he is creating a commission headed by vice president Mike Pence to investigate what the US leader alleges was massive voter fraud in the 2016 election.No public evidence has emerged of large-scale illegal voting in the November election, and Trump and the White House have failed to substantiate the president’s claim.However Trump listed the ways he believed voter fraud had occurred during an interview with Fox News’s Bill O’Reilly which aired before the Super Bowl on Sunday.The fraud was apparent, Trump said, “when you look at the registration and you see dead people that have voted, when you see people that are registered in two states that voted in two states, when you see other things, when you see illegals — people that are not citizens — and they are on the registration rolls.””It’s really a bad situation. It’s really bad” Trump said.Trump’s own lawyers have stated in legal filings that there was no evidence of fraud in the November 8 election.But on Sunday the president promised “to set up a commission to headed by Vice President Mike Pence and we’re going to look at it very, very carefully.”Trump has previously argued that were it not for illegal immigrants voting, he would have won not just the electoral college but also the popular vote, which was taken by Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton.Although there has been no substantiated evidence of massive voter fraud, US officials have said they believe that Russia attempted to meddle in the presidential vote by hacking Democratic Party emails as part of a pro-Trump campaign.Senators have launched a bipartisan investigation into Russia’s alleged meddling.last_img read more

Kerry Rhodes called it crazy Giants QB Eli Man

first_imgKerry Rhodes called it “crazy.”Giants QB Eli Manning said “We got a break on that one, Ithink.”In question is a fourth quarter play where Giants receiverVictor Cruz made a catch, fell down, got back up and hadthe ball stripped. The Cardinals recovered the fumble, butthe Giants maintained possession. The play was good for 19 yards.Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt challenged the ruling butit didn’t matter. Cardinals expect improving Murphy to contribute right away Top Stories What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke Comments   Share   center_img Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation “[The official] just told me I couldn’t challenge it,”Whisenhunt said. “He said that he called him down, he gavehimself up. “He told me I could not challenge it and there is not muchI can say after that.”Like a sliding QB, if a player has given himself up theplay is dead. However, it’s not clear that was the casehere. In fact, by most accounts it was the wrong call. Via his Twitter, former head of NFL officiating Mike Pereira said it should havebeen ruled a fumble. Of course, that is of no consolation to the Cardinals now,given that the very next play was the game-winningtouchdown for the Giants. And ultimately, the Cardinals weren’t going to dwell onthe call — missed or not. “There were a lot of calls in that game, you can’t look atjust one,” Whisenhunt said. “We had a lot of chances.”They did, and maybe Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgeraldsaid it best.“I don’t want to put the referees in the position wherethey have to make a call for us to come out there and getit done,” he said.

Elam slammed for not mentioning the coup at anniversary House session

first_imgFar-right Elam was slammed by both socialist Edek and centre-right Diko on Sunday over the party leader Christos Christou’s speech during the special House session to mark the 1974 coup and Turkish invasion.Edek said in a statement afterwards that the far-right party had totally disregarded the official memorial for “the fallen defenders of the Republic, and legality”.“The Elam leader, apparently did not see a coup in Cyprus, since in his speech to the House he made no mention of it and limited himself to speaking of ‘division’, Edek said.“We call upon the democratic people of Cyprus, irrespective of party origin, partisan and not to isolate those who support and justify the betrayal, which has caused so much suffering in our country. Fascism has no place in Cyprus again.”Diko said in an announcement the Elam leader “made no reference to the treacherous coup”. “He made no reference to the illegal actions of Eoka B, and no reference to the Turkish invasion which was caused the traitorous coup of the [Greek] junta colonels”.“This confirms once again that the leadership of Elam cannot impartially grasp the historical facts and their attitude essentially gives absolution to the traitors of our country.”In his speech Christou made reference to the controversial glossary of conciliatory language journalists were being asked to use in Cyprus problem reporting, calling it the “glossary of shame”, which he said had the exact opposite effect to what was expected.From now on, he said instead of saying ‘the Turkish Cypriot leader’, the party would call Mustafa Akinci ‘Ankara’s envoy’, ‘an occupation leader’, or ‘a representative of the invaders, the conquerors, the bandits, the torturers, the usurpers’.“Instead of saying a bizonal bicommunal federation, we will call it ‘the plan to put Cyprus into turmoil’. Rather than talk about reunification, we will talk about ‘the liberation of our occupied territories’”.You May LikeDriveZingThese Are The Greatest Police Vehicles From Around The WorldDriveZingUndoFitness Engage10 Most Important Vitamins to Take if You Want to Stay FitFitness EngageUndoYahoo Search | Search AdsGet A Storage Unit And Clear Up Some Clutter.
