FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this On May 1, over 20,000 education workers, including teachers, bus drivers, counselors, custodians and nurses, along with students and supporters from across North Carolina, converged on the state legislature in Raleigh. They shut down 35 school districts and closed public school for 850,000 students. Workers used a “personal day” to take the day off.Organized by the North Carolina Association of Educators, the protest raised five demands: provide enough school librarians, psychologists, social workers, counselors, nurses, and other professionals to meet national standards; pay $15-an-hour minimum wage to all school personnel, 5 percent raise for all school employees and a 5 percent cost-of-living adjustment for retirees; expand Medicaid to improve the health of our students and families; reestablish state retiree health benefits for teachers who will be hired after 2021; and restore extra pay for teachers with advanced degrees such as a master’s degree.Last year, after years of struggle, all state workers won a raise to at least $15 per hour, with the exception of school-classified employees. This year they are fighting for the same pay. “I have been here 26 years; I am worth more than $15 per hour,” stated teachers’ assistant Keena Proctor in Asheville. A broad range of civil rights, labor and other community organizations supported the education workers. The Rev. Dr. William Barber II, representing the Poor People’s Campaign, spoke at the rally: “When you hurt teachers, when you deny health care, when you refuse to pay workers $15 and a union, it is against the good of the whole. It is time to teach this legislature a lesson!” The May Day action was a defeat of anti-union forces that had used red baiting to try to scare people away. Senate leader Phil Berger had said, “The far-left NCAE strike will keep kids out of the classroom and force parents to find childcare.” The April 11 Raleigh News and Observer ran the headline, “Advocating for ‘our children’ or a ‘Marxist’ event?” In Columbia, S.C., the state’s capital, over 10,000 education workers and supporters gathered outside the Department of Education and marched to the State House to call on lawmakers to raise their pay and increase funding for public schools. They also demanded better working conditions and a better learning environment for students, with less testing, a daily lunch break, adequate restroom access and smaller class sizes.

moodboard/Thinkstock(GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.) — The 5-year-old girl who was attacked and dragged by a bear in Colorado on Mother’s Day is in “good health and good spirits” after getting released from the hospital, according to a statement from St. Mary’s Medical Center in Grand Junction, Colorado.Kimberly Cyr wandered out of her home in East Orchard Mesa at around 2:30 a.m. to investigate a noise that she thought was a dog, according to her mother. The noise turned out to have come from a bear, which then attacked her. When Kimberly’s mother heard her screaming, she ran out of the house and scared the bear away.A statement posted to Facebook on Friday from the hospital reads that Kimberly’s “injuries have healed sufficiently for the approval of her discharge from the hospital. She continues the process of healing in the care of her family and medical caregivers.”Three days after the attack, officers killed the bear that attacked the girl, according to Colorado Parks and Wildlife.

iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — We may not punch ballots on Election Day anymore, but for one 78-year-old man, he was punching something: a big black bear.Sonny Pumphrey was cleaning up fall leaves in his driveway in White Oak, North Carolina, on Nov. 6 when he came face to face with a mother bear and her two cubs.He said that the cubs ran away when he saw them, but that the mother stayed behind, leaving him with no choice but to confront her.“I had nowhere to run. I could not go right and I couldn’t go left,” Pumphrey told ABC News. “I guess I just went with my natural instinct and just tried to protect myself.”Pumphrey said the bear immediately ran toward him to attack, and that his reaction was to punch her in the face.“I had nothing in my hands, so… I just started slugging at the bear as hard as I could,” he said.Pumphrey said he was able to land a few hits, however, the bear eventually bit him and began shaking him like a “rag doll.”Pumphrey’s wife, Betty Pumphrey, said that she heard the commotion from inside the house.“I was scared to death that she was going to kill my husband,” Betty Pumphrey said. “He was fighting for his life.”She said that she ran outside with her dog to try to scare the bear away.“The door was open and… I saw the bear attacking him,” Betty Pumphrey, 72, said. “I didn’t hesitate, I just went through the door and screamed, and then with the little dog barking, we tried to, you know, get [the bear] away from him.”“I guess with all the commotion, it startled her and she turned and ran,” she added.With the bear gone, Betty Pumphrey called 911, and an ambulance took Sonny Pumphrey to the hospital, where he received rabies shots for his bitten and bruised hip.“I’m sore all over; my body hurts,” he said.Sonny Pumphrey said he was at home recovering on Friday.He said that he was lucky to be alive after the ordeal and that from now, on he wouldn’t be leaving home without his gun.“I got lucky,” he said. “I am one lucky individual to be alive today.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Employees are increasingly managing their own careerprogression, with half of all promotions pro-actively managed by workers, a newsurvey has found. Comments are closed. Bossing the bosses helps to boost career prospectsOn 2 Mar 2004 in Personnel Today Respondents also said it was crucial to actively networkwith managers and decision-makers, taking any chance to demonstrate potentialor untapped skills to superiors. Taking additional training, volunteering for more work andvociferously sharing any success with managers were also cited as helpful inwinning promotion. The trend for ‘up-managing’, or actively managing the bossto gain promotion, is becoming an increasingly common way to get ahead, with 50per cent of promoted staff citing this method. The poll of 5,000 employees carried out by jobs website Reedfound the vast majority of promoted staff had proactively managed their managerin a bid to climb the career ladder. Dan Ferrandino managing director of jobsite Reed saidflatter structures and new ways of working meant that staff were more able tomanage their own promotion. “Nowadays it is more important than ever to activelymanage your career instead of sitting back and waiting for something tohappen,” he said. “People no longer get automatic promotions justbecause they have stayed around long enough.” However, the survey found that words alone were not enoughand had to be backed up with the additional work or new ideas. By Ross Wigham Staff said it was important to ensure bosses were made awareof their extra efforts, and taking on extra duties topped the poll of the bestway to gain promotion.

USDA headquarters in Washington D.C. (Credit: Billy Hathorn/Wikipedia.org) The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is seeking public input to help with the creation of the Higher Blends Infrastructure Incentive Program (HBIIP), a new program that will expand the availability of domestic ethanol and biodiesel by incentivizing the expansion of sales of renewable fuels.“Feedback from farmers, retailers and biofuels producers is critical to the success of this future program,” Agriculture Secretary Perdue said. “Under the leadership of President Trump, USDA remains committed to fulfilling a key promise to American farmers to enhance the promotion of biofuels.”President Trump has made it abundantly clear he is unleashing the full potential of American energy production as we retake our rightful place as the world’s leader and become energy independent. Expanding the sale of biofuels will provide consumers with more choices when they fill up at the pump, including environmentally friendly fuel with decreased emissions, driving demand for our farmers and improving the air we breathe.

London firm Dexters reckons it’s the busiest estate agency in London post-lockdown, landing an impressive six deals an hour during the past two weeks.The claim might be challenged by its rivals, but nevertheless, since the housing market reopened the agency has marked up a business record of more than 600 sales and lettings deals agreed – 20% up on the same period last year – an average of almost 45 deals per day, or six deals per hour.Deals include everything from Mayfair mansions and Fulham pieds-à-terre to Chelsea family houses and flats.The London market was expected to see a big price jump at Easter because it had been so busy earlier in the year, but as this has been put on hold during the pandemic, buyers are sensing that it’s now a good time to buy, says Dexters, which forecasts that demand will continue to push prices higher.200% jumpIt has also seen a 200% jump in new enquiries across its 70 offices, as chief executive Andy Shepherd says there’s been a real scramble from Londoners to move home after the lockdown. “Not only have house-hunters in the capital spent a great deal of time at home for the past couple of months but a lot of people will continue to do so.”He adds: “Whilst some plan to move out of London, many are looking to move locally within the capital, or even closer to work. Cycle routes are the new travel lines into town, while walking distances to schools and how far it is to the park are now what everyone wants to know.”Dexters has found that an extra room and outside space are top of many people’s wish-list.Andy Shepherd Dexters June 2, 2020Nigel Lewis3 commentsB Singh 6th June 2020 at 9:01 pmI can believe that with Lettings, however sales is a very different game.Selling 6 properties an hour isn’t exactly exchanging and completing, it’s simply putting them under offer!Most people in this business know that means zilch until exchange. Especially with the current market of renegotiating agreed prices and job situations changing for many, it’s unlikely they will happen efficiently and effectively.Things are great for Dexters, but it’s staff and the rest of London will remember news leading up to and during Covid, not something you can erase or forget.Log in to ReplyDavid Coates, William H brown William H brown 2nd June 2020 at 8:53 amSounds like Bullish ha haLog in to ReplyGraham Davidson, Sequre Sequre 2nd June 2020 at 7:12 am600 sales across 70 branches in a little over 2 weeks is about 4 per branch per week.
