Fury after Linda Lusardi rings 999 to ask cops to get her through traffic jam - The Daily Record


Fury after Linda Lusardi rings 999 to ask cops to get her through traffic jam - The Daily Record:
Lusardi sparked fury after dialling 999 and asking for help in getting to her panto on time.

The ex-Page Three girl, who is starring as the Wicked Queen in Snow White, rang police after getting stuck in traffic on the M25.

She begged them to let her use the hard shoulder so she could make her matinee in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire.

But a furious 999 call centre worker told Lusardi, 50, she would have to wait in the jam like everyone else.

And yesterday cops slammed the former Dancing On Ice star for wasting police time. A Hertfordshire Police spokeswoman said it was 'ridiculous' of Lusardi to call 999 asking for help."

The Fun Police - Times Online

Wallander - where have all the detectives gone? - Times Online:

"The Fun Police was a subject that Theroux must be kicking himself for having missed out on. It was made for him. Made for him and for Richard Littlejohn."
"You can roll your eyes at a man who wants to tell you how to wipe a floor or ban the donkey derby, but at the same time you must remember the hundreds of builders dying of asbestos-induced cancer inhaled before council busybodies made it their business, or the miners with black lung caught when they were employed by you and me"
Well done to the Times and AA Gill for a honest review

Sleep helps people learn complicated tasks


Sleep helps people learn complicated tasks (11/21/2008):
"Sleep helps the mind learn complicated tasks and helps people recover learning they otherwise thought they had forgotten over the course of a day, research at the University of Chicago shows.

Using a test that involved learning to play video games, researchers showed for the first time that people who had 'forgotten' how to perform a complex task 12 hours after training found that those abilities were restored after a night's sleep.

'Sleep consolidated learning by restoring what was lost over the course of a day following training and by protecting what was learned against subsequent loss,' said Howard Nusbaum, Professor of Psychology at the University of Chicago, and a researcher in the study. 'These findings suggest that sleep has an important role in learning generalized skills in stabilizing and protecting memory.'"

Myth: Children need to be wrapped in cotton wool to keep them safe


The reality

Health and safety law is often used as an excuse to stop children taking part in exciting activities, but well-managed risk is good for them. It engages their imagination, helps them learn and even teaches them to manage risks for themselves in the future. They won’t understand about risk if they’re wrapped in cotton wool.

Risk itself won’t damage children, but ill-managed and overprotective actions could!

Study shows difficult to read instructions decrease motivation


It is not surprising that people are more willing to participate in a task if it does not require too much effort. What is interesting, however, is the way we determine just how easy a task will be and therefore, how motivated we are to complete it. New research from University of Michigan psychologists Hyunjin Song and Norbert Schwarz investigates how thinking about a task (i.e., how complex or simple it will be) affects our attitude toward the task itself.

Dooking for apples banned as unhygienic - Scotsman.com News


Dooking for apples banned as unhygienic - Scotsman.com News: "Dooking for apples banned as unhygienic

Published Date: 02 November 2008
By David Leask
FOR centuries it has been at the core of all good Halloween parties.
But dooking for apples has been watered down after claims it is unhygienic.

Pupils at schools across Scotland celebrated Halloween with parties last week, but many did so without getting so much as their fringes wet.

Many primary heads have now banned the ancient game – consigning it to the same 'nanny state' bin as conkers, ice-sliding and photographs at nativity plays. Instead, an increasing number of children are told to prong apples with forks."

Broomsticks and devil’’s forks deemed hazardous for Brit kids health!


Broomsticks and devil’’s forks deemed hazardous for Brit kids health!:
"October 25th, 2008 - 6:13 pm ICT by ANI -

London, Oct 25 (ANI): British nursery Langham Pre-School, near Colchester, Essex, has banned kids from bringing in broomsticks and pitchforks or other such objects during Hallowe”en.

Due to health and safety fears, the pre-schools committee decided upon the ban, especially after a child was hurt last year.

However, it did not sit well with the parents, who have criticised it as health and safety gone too far.

Sally Cowley, a 39-year-old mother-of-two who runs the nearby Boxted mother and toddler group, finds the decision sad.

I think it’’s sad it has come to this. It’’s the same as banning conkers, the Telegraph quoted her as saying."
Question, If brooms are dangerous, how do we now sweep the floor?

MuscatineJournal.com | Speed bump theft is 'not a joke'


MuscatineJournal.com | Speed bump theft is 'not a joke':
"Speed bump theft is 'not a joke'
By Jennifer Meyer of the Muscatine Journal


MUSCATINE, Iowa — Someone made a quick getaway.

But officials at Muscatine Public Works hope someone saw whoever stole a speed bump strip from Clermont Drive last weekend.

“It’s not a joke, it’s theft,” said Public Works Director Randy Hill.

Each speed bump strip costs taxpayers $1,600. The city had four, but now it has only three.

Hill believes someone might have seen the thieves with flashlights, or picking up the heavy speed bump strips.

“It’s just not a matter of pulling them up off the pavement. They’re bolted down,” he said.

Nobody reported the theft of another speed bump a few years ago from Wier Street, which Hill said is well traveled."

OFT issues Statement of Objections against eight recruitment agencies


121/08 21 October 2008

The OFT has today issued a Statement of Objections alleging that eight recruitment agencies have breached the Competition Act 1998.

The Statement of Objections sets out the OFT's proposed findings against;
A Warwick Associates, Beresford Blake Thomas, CDI AndersElite, Eden Brown, Fusion People, Hays Specialist Recruitment, Henry Recruitment and Hill McGlynn Associates.

The OFT alleges that these recruitment agencies engaged in the following conduct, in breach of the Chapter I prohibition of the Competition Act 1998 [see notes]:

* Collective boycott – an agreement to withdraw from and/or refrain from entering into contracts with a particular intermediary for the supply of candidates to construction companies in the UK, which had as its object the prevention, restriction or distortion of competition in the market for the supply, by recruitment agencies, of candidates with professional, managerial, trade and labour skills required by the construction industry in the UK.
* Price fixing - an agreement and/or concerted practice to fix target fee rates for the supply of candidates to intermediaries and certain construction companies in the UK, which had as its object the prevention, restriction or distortion of competition in the market for the supply, by recruitment agencies, of candidates with professional, managerial, trade and labour skills required by the construction industry in the UK.

The OFT alleges that this behaviour formed one single overall infringement, which took place from late 2004 to between the end of 2005 and early 2006 - the exact duration of a given recruitment agency's involvement in the alleged infringement varied.

Imaging study reveals battle between lure of reward and fear of failure.


That familiar pull between the promise of victory and the dread of defeat - whether in money, love or sport - is rooted in the brain's architecture, according to a new imaging study.

Neuroscientists at the USC Brain and Creativity Institute have identified distinct brain regions with competing responses to risk.

Both regions are located in the prefrontal cortex, an area behind the forehead involved in analysis and planning.

By giving volunteers a task that measures risk tolerance and observing their reactions with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), the researchers found that activity in one region identified risk-averse volunteers, while activity in a different region was greater in those with an appetite for risk.

The study appeared online Oct. 8 in the journal Cerebral Cortex.

"We can see risk as a battle between two forces," said Antoine Bechara, professor of psychology at USC. "There is always a lure of reward. There's always a fear of failure. These are the two forces that are always battling each other."

Myth: Health and safety laws ban bonfires


The reality

Despite the story of a rugby club showing a film of a bonfire instead of lighting a real one, health and safety legislation doesn’t ban them.

Over the coming months, millions of people will be enjoying Diwali and Guy Fawkes Night celebrations. So if you’re organising a public event, now or at any other time, don’t let it go up in smoke - take practical steps to manage the risks responsibly, and sensibly.

Asprin


A man goes in for an interview for a job as a safety officer. The interview went quite well but the trouble was he kept winking and nodding his head.
The interviewer said,
"Although you have a lot of the qualities we're looking for, the fact that you keep winking and nodding your head disqualifies you."

"Oh, that's no problem," said the safety man. "If I take a couple of aspirin I stop winking and nodding my head for an hour."
"Show me," said the interviewer.

So the safety pro reached into his pocket. Embarrassingly he pulled out loads of condoms of every variety , before he found the packet of aspirin. He took the aspirin and soon stopped winking and nodding.

The interviewer said, "That's amazing, but I don't think we could employ someone who'd be womanising all over the country."
"Excuse me!" exclaimed the safety pro, "I'm a happily married man, not a womaniser!"

"Well how do you explain all the condoms, then?"
asked the interviewer.
The safety expert replied,
"Have you ever gone into a pharmacy, winking and nodding, and asked for a packet of aspirin?"

Myth: HSE bans this, that and the other


The reality

There have been many reports of HSE, and health and safety law, being responsible for banning all sorts of things. For example, flip flops at work, knitting in hospitals, school sports days, a charity Christmas swim and even cuddly toys on dustbin lorries.

Actually, HSE has banned very little outright, apart from a very few high-risk exceptions (e.g. asbestos which kills over 5,000 individuals a year). HSE believes that health and safety should be about taking practical steps to manage real risks, not bureaucracy leading to the banning of everyday activities.

Next time you hear of a 'ban', if in doubt check it out.

Myth: Even Mr Punch needs a written risk assessment


The reality

A Punch and Judy man received a standard letter from an event organiser asking him to submit a health and safety risk assessment. However when he questioned the need for it, they 'backed-off' and no paperwork was required. It sounds like wires got crossed somewhere and perhaps the standard letter was sent in error.

HSEs guidance is clear: if there is genuinely no significant risk, nothing needs to be written down.

If a written assessment is needed – keep it fit for purpose, and crucially: act on it. Paperwork without action does no one any good.

Welsh councils in £8m payouts storm


Welsh councils in £8m payouts storm

By Ben Glaze, Wales On Sunday

WELSH councils and their insurers have paid out a massive £8m in compensation claims which range from slipping on apple sauce to breaking a £90 stiletto heel.

And eight councillors were among those taking legal action between 2005 and 2007 for incidents such as tripping over pavements, pot holes puncturing car tyres and vehicles damaged on council property.

The real figure is likely to much higher than £8m, as three of Wales’ 22 councils – including the second biggest, Rhondda Cynon Taf – refused to reveal details.

Newport, with a population of 137,011, came out top of the compensation table, paying out a huge £3.18m, figures released under Freedom of Information laws revealed to Wales on Sunday.
