Big three recruitment firms are expected to post solid growth

first_img Big three recruitment firms are expected to post solid growth Share KCS-content Tags: NULL whatsapp Show Comments ▼ whatsappcenter_img THREE of the capital’s largest recruitment firms are due to provide trading updates this week.Robert Walters is due to report third quarter gross profit today. Hays is due to publish first quarter growth figures tomorrow, while Michael Page will announce third quarter figures on the same day.Fund managers Collins Stewart yesterday forecast gross profit in the range of £110m and £113m for Michael Page and £40.5m for Robert Walters. However, it said it expected growth to be broadly flat at Hays, arguing its exposure to the public sector in the UK could potentially hold growth back despite the fact it is making greater in-roads into continental Europe and Asia. Collins Stewart upgraded its recommendation on Robert Walters to “buy” from “hold” while remaining neutral on Hays and Michael Page. Hays only announced its full-year results to 30 June five weeks ago.An City insider told City A.M. that analysts will be looking to see whether it has lowered its public sector exposure since then.

Eddie Jones sets sights on Springboks to arrest losing run

first_img When England met up at their recent training camp in Teddington, so the story goes, Eddie Jones walked into the room and told the 40-plus blokes there that none of them had ever beaten South Africa. Guess who England’s next game is against on 12 November.Jones has, when he was coach of Australia, and he was inside the South African camp as they lifted the World Cup in 2007. He has been there and done it, for and against the Boks, unlike anyone in his squad at Test level so no wonder he started targeting Allister Coetzee’s side as soon as he took off from Sydney after the summer tour.Behind enemy lines: Eddie Jones helped mastermind a Springbok World Cup win against EnglandBut England have just won a Grand Slam for the first time in 13 years, have beaten the Wallabies 3-0 away from home for the first time since year dot and are on a 10-match winning streak for the first time the glory days of Sir Clive. Surely it was time to give it a rest, have a look back and celebrate the historic wins? Not a bit of it. In the dreaded sports-speak Jones has already drawn a line under it and moved on.England have won nine out of nine under Jones but from the way he and his team talk you would not know it.And maybe that is his secret – he just doesn’t take his foot off the pedal. The stories of Jones emailing or calling staff and players at dawn are legion but if the players work hard then the coach works harder and does not believe in looking back.Straight drive: Eddie Jones has been keeping busy over the summerThe Australian was at the Oval Test match between England and Pakistan where he told listeners to Test Match Special that his job was to make players ‘comfortable being uncomfortable’ and another task was to make players do things they didn’t want to do.The Australian tour was reviewed by the players and coaches when they were still down under and was only touched on at their most recent get-together.Captain Dylan Hartley said: “All our focus now is on South Africa and winning that game. I’ve never beaten South Africa and I don’t think anyone in the squad’s ever beaten them. There are things we look at, things we need to implement and work on in training, things like meetings and reviews, things we can get better at. The focus for the team is always moving forward, always looking forward to the next challenge and working out how we can get better.”Last time out: England captain Dylan Hartley celebrates in 2014His boss added: “We’re back to zero now, that’s the reality of it. All that’s gone.” So that is the message he is getting through to his players – it was nice while it lasted but what is coming up next? There has probably not been a better time to play the South Africans and for England to get the monkey off their back, and it would be a real boost to finally get one over them.Jones won’t get the bullet, like Robinson, if things don’t go England’s way in the first autumn international but if they are still drawing blanks against the Boks it won’t be because of a lack of hard work. Eddie Jones has not stopped since taking over as England coach after the World Cup and the 56-year old is not one for letting up or looking back… LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img As former captain Chris Robshaw, England’s very own comeback kid, said: “We watched a couple of clips this time but this camp was very much about the autumn coming up.”Since the 3-0 win against the Wallabies Jones has spent time at the Tour de France and had a chat with his fellow Australian Trevor Bayliss who is in charge of the England cricket team. He is demanding improvements from his players all the time but is leading the way by trying to improve himself all the time.But he is wrong on one score.None of the current players had beaten the Springboks in a Test match but one or two of them could be the answer to a pub quiz question in your local anytime soon.Ben Youngs and Manu Tuilagi were part of a Leicester side that defeated the-then world champions, at Welford Road, back in November 2009. Youngs kicked 17 points in the 22-17 win and was catapulted into the England team for the following Six Nations, Tuilagi followed in 2011, but no-one in the current squad has beaten the Boks in a no-holds-barred international.  A few of them were part of the 14-14 draw in Port Elizabeth in 2012 but apart from that – nothing.Reputations crushed: Andy Robinson lost his job after losing to South Africa in 2006It was nearly a decade ago that England last turned over the green-and-gold. After losing to Argentina in the 2006 autumn internationals Andy Robinson’s side got the better of the Boks 23-21 at Twickenham, a game that saved Robinson’s job as head coach. A week later, South Africa won 25-14, a game that saved Jake White’s job as head coach of the Boks, en route to winning the World Cup, and cost Robinson his. Stop the Boks: England will be out to dominate the Springboks in November last_img read more

Washington bishop welcomes Obama’s change of heart

first_img Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Rector Knoxville, TN Submit a Press Release Rhian Roberts says: Rector Shreveport, LA Faith & Politics, Human Sexuality Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET May 11, 2012 at 4:35 pm That’s our bishop! God bless her! May 14, 2012 at 6:08 pm Loving people is loving God. I realize “love” has become a common-place and trite word, and I will not define it here. I also understand that many people believe in “tough love”, but I rather be walked-over than harmfully inflict so called “tough-love”. In any event, I do not aim to convince you of anything. “Logical” arguments do not soften peoples’ hearts to God.I wonder though, what might happen if you surrendered your desire to be “right” (since you think you’re right), and opened yourself to truly serve others?Don’t get me wrong, I used to chant statements such as your last 2 sentences – especially so when I lived among like-minded people. But now I have to accept that humility must always accompany faith, since faith by definition is something not proven. I am not saying that I agree with your choice of interpretations, but I’m sure that I have my own wonky ideas, and I always have to allow for the possibility of being wrong. Thus, I am compelled to ask myself, would I be willing to risk going to hell if I believe I am truly loving people?

Rev. Mariann Edgar Budde, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington, released the following statement May 10, welcoming President Barack Obama’s endorsement of marriage equality:“I want to thank President Barack Obama for his forthright description of how he came to change his mind on the issue of marriage equality. While some commentators are dismissing the President’s “evolution,” the fact is that many of us have a similar story to tell. We grew up in social and spiritual traditions that taught us that same-gender orientation was a perversion, was a sin. Yet over time, and in relationship with people whose lives and examples contradicted our assumptions, we came to a different conclusion. Eventually, we came to realize that the sacred traditions we thought were opposed to same-gender relationships had much to say in support of them.“The President acknowledged that it was the example of staff members in committed, monogamous relationships; the same-gender parents of his daughters’ friends, and brave gay and lesbian soldiers that made him reconsider his opposition to marriage equality. This is only fitting. Jesus said that by their fruits you would know them. The President, like millions of other Americans, recognized goodness and holiness in the lives of same-sex couples, and had the courage and humility to change his mind.“I offer him my appreciation and my prayers.” Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Featured Events Hugh Magee says: Featured Jobs & Calls Rector Albany, NY David Desrosiers says: Joe Clark says: Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Virtual Episcopal Latino Ministry Competency Course Online Course Aug. 9-13 Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Rector Collierville, TN Submit an Event Listing May 11, 2012 at 5:43 pm This is a great statement!

The Bible says that homosexual behavior is a sin, an abomination to the Lord. You find it in the Old Testament, the New Testament, as well as in the very words of Jesus Himself. There will always be people who quote scripture out of context and twist it to fit their own agenda. I don’t hate homosexuals – I pray for them. They have believed a lie and they are caught up in a lifestyle that will eventually kill them and send them to hell. That is not my idea, it’s from God. And the church leaders that teach otherwise will have to answer to God for their false teachings. You have a right to disagree…and that’s fine. But I will speak the truth, at whatever the cost. I won’t bow down to social pressures, and I won’t go along with the crowd. I would rather please God than man.

It is becoming very difficult to defend our church when the leaders of our church do not see how the leader of this country is using them for his own political gain. At what cost will we follow these leaders? I truly feel the Bishop does not understand the meaning of courage because I have seen none in the current President and feel this is the Bishop’s way to use the church as a forum to support her presidential choice. What would the Bishop say to clergy who refuse to marry same-gender couples? Would the Bishop support them for their courage? I don’t really expect any answers to my question.

Photo: CEEP, via Facebook[Episcopal News Service] At least six people who attended the mid-February annual gathering of the Consortium of Endowed Episcopal Parishes, or CEEP, have tested positive for COVID-19, the coronavirus, and all six had participated in the same pre-conference event, the network said March 14 in an email update to attendees and on its website.The conference was held Feb. 19-22 in Louisville, Kentucky. CEEP leaders have been working with Louisville public health officials, who are following up with other individuals who attended the pre-conference session with the six people who were infected with the virus. The session was intended for rectors and deans.“They are conducting this outreach out of an abundance of caution,” CEEP Executive Director Joe Swimmer said in his email to conference attendees. “Since it has been more than 20 days since our conference ended, we are well outside the incubation period. The health officials believe that anyone who was likely to contract the virus at this session would have shown symptoms by now.”Anyone experiencing symptoms of the virus, such as coughing, shortness of breath and fever, are advised to contact a health care provider, Swimmer said.“I know this is a trying time for all of us as we put our energies toward caring for our congregants and communities, who are experiencing the repercussions of the public health crisis,” Swimmer said in his update. “Know that we are here to support you as we get through this together.”At least five Episcopal rectors were identified last week as among those to receive a COVID-19 diagnosis after attending the CEEP gathering, starting with the Rev. Timothy Cole, rector at Christ Church Georgetown in Washington, D.C.Cole informed his congregation March 8 that he had tested positive for the coronavirus, the first confirmed case in the nation’s capital, and the church canceled worship services. Hundreds of parishioners who recently had visited or attended services at the church were urged by city health officials to self-quarantine due to possible exposure there to the coronavirus.Then on March 11, the dioceses of Fort Worth and Los Angeles announced additional priests had contracted the disease: the Rev. Robert Pace, rector at Trinity Episcopal Church in Fort Worth, Texas, and the Rev. Janet Broderick, rector at All Saints’ Episcopal Church in Beverly Hills, California. Both had attended the CEEP conference, and both congregations closed and canceled worship services after the priests were hospitalized for treatment.And in New York, another CEEP attended tested positive, the Rev. Roy Cole, interim rector at Manhattan’s Church of the Epiphany. The church advised anyone who came into contact with Cole since Feb. 23 to self-quarantine because they may have been exposed to the virus as well.Additional reports followed. On March 13, the Rev. Brad Whitaker, rector of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Chattanooga, Tennessee, announced he had received a COVID-19 diagnosis. The Louisville Courier-Journal reported March 14 that a sixth person had tested positive but didn’t identify the person.In Washington, the Rev. Timothy Cole “continues to receive good reports from his doctors,” church leaders said on March 14, while four more from the Christ Church Georgetown community had tested positive, including the organist. Parishioners were encouraged to view Washington National Cathedral’s live video service on March 15, including Presiding Bishop Michael Curry’s sermon, and the congregation is sharing updates on a blog titled “Grace Under Quarantine.” A blog post on March 16 including video of a “virtual Morning Prayer.”Trinity Fort Worth said in an online update March 16 it is making plans for its own online worship service on March 22. Fort Worth Bishop Scott Mayer has ordered a suspension of all in-person worship services in the diocese, a precaution in place in dioceses across the country.“In times of chaos and times of calm, we are God’s church,” the Rev. Janet Waggoner, Diocese of Fort Worth’s canon to the ordinary, told the Texas Tribune after filling in for Pace in an online worship service for Trinity parishioners. “Thanks be to God that Facebook Live helps us come together in mind and spirit even when we must fast from gathering together in person.”The latest All Saints’ update, dated March 13, includes a message from Broderick, saying she was still at the hospital. “I continue to be so very grateful for your prayers and all the love,” she wrote. “It can be hard to stay good-tempered — and then I think of you and what it will feel like when we can be together again in earnest. How grateful we will be when we can take communion again together.”CEEP is the largest group of well-resourced and endowment-supported parishes in The Episcopal Church. It is organizing a webinar on March 18 featuring a panel discussion on the church’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.On the panel will be a public health expert from St. Louis, Missouri, and the rectors of churches in Seattle, Washington; Houston, Texas; and Alexandria, Virginia. The Rev. Matt Heyd of the Church of the Heavenly Rest in New York will moderate. Registration is available here. It will be recorded and available online starting March 19.– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

He has adopted the philosophy that to Live fully, laugh uproariously, love passionately, and learn like there is no tomorrow, is a formula for a long and joy-filled life. The Anatomy of Fear I am reminded as I read your article about the man trapped by a flood who sat on his rooftop and waited for God to rescue him. A man in a boat, a helicopter rescue came by and another man in a boat,all offering rescue, but the man’s faith was strong and he told them all ” The Lord will provide” well, he died and as he stood at the pearly gates he asked why The Lord didn’t rescue him and he was told, “But He sent two boats and a helocopter!” The point of all this rambling is that, as you point out, we have to take action, we need to do our part! We have to also do our part! If we just sit on the rooftop and wait for God to do it for us, we may not like the result, He gave us free will, we need to use it wisely and we all will become better people! Richard charles towne Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Dear Kristin, believe me when I say that you are not alone in the impatience arena. This is definitely a people problem. Here I am, a curmudgeonly young old person and I am still struggling. It isn’t that I am impatient. Impatience is a fault and I don’t got some. (WE KNOW BETTER THAN THAT DON’T WE?) Blessings on you dear one, Chaz Richard, point well taken pal! It does seem that some people have to learn the hard way that hot stoves burn, sleeping dogs do bite, and swimming against the current isn’t wise, and then there are the fools that never do learn. Thanks for the wisdom, Chaz February 5, 2019 at 1:06 pm charles towne A FRIEND Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Dear NH, that each of our family members and our friends will have that blessed assurance is my greatest desire. I appreciate you so much, Chaz Nh charles towne Reply February 3, 2019 at 7:55 am charles towne February 9, 2019 at 2:48 am There is a little book by Don Gossett entitled, WHAT YOU SAY IS WHAT YOU GET! I find that title to be so apt and true to life, extraordinarily so The Bible tells us that, “out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks, therefore love comes from a loving heart, and from a broken, angry spirit issues..broken, sick, angry, and vengeful thoughts. Bless you CSG, bless you my friend, Chaz Kristin Reply Reply Reply EJ Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.last_img read more

Blurred House / BiLD architecture

Year:  Houses 2011 Projects Australia Blurred House / BiLD architectureSave this projectSaveBlurred House / BiLD architecture “COPY” CopyHouses•Melbourne, Australia Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/192396/blurred-house-bild-architecture Clipboard “COPY” Photographs:  Tanja MilbourneText description provided by the architects. The first in a series of studies into the adaptation of vernacular Australian suburban typologies, ‘Blurred House’ is a major renovation and extension to an original 1930’s Californian bungalow in Melbourne’s inner-north. Reacting to the established convention of residential extension which prescribes a jarring juxtaposition of existing ‘old’ and introduced ‘new’ architectural elements; the ‘Blurred House’ offers an alternative proposition; that of a blurring between ‘old’ and ‘new’ to produce a hybrid. Gradually transitioning from the vernacular to the contemporary, the division of architectural elements are deliberately ambiguous, producing a unique formal and visual language.Save this picture!© Tanja MilbourneRecommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreStonesFranken-SchotterFlooring and Wall Tiles – Dietfurt LimestoneStonesCosentinoSurfaces – Prexury®Renders / 3D AnimationVectorworksVectorworks ArchitectViewed from the street, the house appears largely unchanged, with a small clerestory window the only hint of reconfiguration. Both internally and externally; moving through the house, new materials, spatial characters and formal language is progressively introduced. By the time of arrival in the back yard, the house has evolved into a different building; no longer recognizable from its original starting point; an architectural ‘rabbit in a hat’. Save this picture!© Tanja MilbourneReflecting the formal strategy of transition, rooms at the front of the property are left largely unadulterated, remaining more enclosed. On the other hand, living spaces to the rear are progressively more open and interconnected embracing the garden and pool areas. These varied spaces respond to different ‘modes’ of living, with different volumetric, acoustic, and light qualities. Whilst these spaces are linked to a greater or lesser degree, they are not ‘open plan’ in a conventional sense, rather configured in a more nuanced distribution of distinct spaces and functions. Save this picture!© Tanja MilbourneA hybrid of both old and new, oscillating between the past and present, the Blurred House sits comfortably in the street scape as something familiar yet alien. Distinct from both the area’s new housing and the original suburban fabric the ‘Blurred House’ is neither little red riding hood or the big bad wolf, somewhere in between.Save this picture!© Tanja MilbourneProject gallerySee allShow lessVideo: Alvaro Siza sings The BeatlesArticlesVideo: A Procura De PanchoArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/192396/blurred-house-bild-architecture Clipboard Architects: BiLD architecture Year Completion year of this architecture project ArchDaily Blurred House / BiLD architecture Save this picture!© Tanja Milbourne+ 14 Share CopyAbout this officeBiLD architectureOfficeFollowProductsGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMelbourneHousesAustraliaPublished on December 19, 2011Cite: “Blurred House / BiLD architecture” 19 Dec 2011.

PROJECT 65 launches its next big challenge event

first_imgPROJECT 65 launches its next big challenge event MILITARY CHARITY LAUNCHES 131 MILE SUPER CHALLENGE AND A TRIBUTE TO FALLEN BRITISH HEROMilitary charity PROJECT 65 has created an incredible challenge event to raise vital funds for wounded armed forces personnel and bereaved families.Titled the FORCES MARCH, the annual event is designed to be one of the most challenging and demanding events of it’s kind in the UK. Teams from Her Majesty’s Armed Forces, Fire Service, Police Forces, Corporate teams, Civilians and disabled participants will be running or walking a total distance of 131 miles from Ilfracombe, North Devon to Bulford Camp, Wiltshire. The FORCES MARCH begins on Thursday 27th May and finishes on Monday 31st May. Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Teams will compete the 5 marathons in 5 days challenge to win ‘The Mark Hale Trophy’, a prize for the outright winning team which is named after Captain Mark Hale of 2nd Btn The Rifles Regiment who was killed whilst trying to save the life of another soldier in Afghanistan in August 2009.Captain Hale had led a team of 8 soldiers from 2 RIFLES in a rowing challenge to raise money for PROJECT 65 in June. His team rowed a total of 5800kms on rowing machines– the equivalent distance from Sangin, Afghanistan to Pegasus Bridge, Normandy to coincide with the charity’s first major challenge event, THE RUN TO PEGASUS which finished on the 65th anniversary of D-Day, 6th June 2009 at the legendary bridge.Danny Greeno, Chairman of PROJECT 65 tells where the inspiration came from for the FORCES MARCH, “I first had the idea for the FORCES MARCH around 2 years ago. Our first challenge event, THE RUN TO PEGASUS was such an overwhelming success that we decided to try and create something even bigger. The FORCES MARCH fits perfectly with our ethos of uniting civilians with the military to promote the efficiency of the armed forces as well as presenting a very demanding challenge. The route takes in some of the UK’s most spectacular scenery and if people really want to help raise money for our wounded heroes but are a little daunted by the prospect of covering 131 miles, they are welcome to just complete one or two stages of the march. We are extremely excited about the event and there is already huge interest. “Entry details and additional information can be found at www.forcesmarch.org.ukThe money raised by PROJECT 65 will be divided between The Royal British Legion, BLESMA, St Dunstan’s, RAF Benevolent Fund, Army Benevolent Fund and Help for Heroes.  55 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThiscenter_img Tagged with: Events Howard Lake | 15 December 2009 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
