Nike unveil England’s new home and and away kits for 2011/2012

first_imgMonday Aug 1, 2011 Nike unveil England’s new home and and away kits for 2011/2012 Earlier today was the launch of Nike’s new England home and away playing kits, including the controversial black jersey that has caused such a stir. Here’s a quick video and more information about both jerseys.When it was announced a few weeks back that England were close to unveiling a new away strip that was to be all black, for the World Cup in New Zealand, there were mixed reactions, with much negativity coming from certain parts of the world.New Zealand’s Prime Minister even commented on the concept, famously saying they’re a bunch of ‘Wannabes’, and that ‘There’s only one team that wears black with pride, and that’s the All Blacks.’The new away jersey is pitch black, with the only colour being that of the red rose, and the white of the sponsors’ logos. The home kit on the other hand is more traditional, but for the first time, is 100% white, offering an amazing contrast between the two.Featuring all sorts of new technology, from the jerseys to the socks, these kits are aimed to help improve England’s performance, as well as give them a bold new look that will resonate well with their fans and players.The alternate kit will be worn for the first time when England play Wales this coming weekend (August 6) at Twickenham, with the white kit worn the following week against Wales again, that time in Cardiff.ADVERTISEMENT What are your thoughts on the way they look and the controversy surrounding the away kit?

first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE Home Energy Leading Biofuels Advocates Urge President to Keep EPA on Course with RFS Leading Biofuels Advocates Urge President to Keep EPA on Course with RFS By Hoosier Ag Today – Oct 3, 2017 Growth Energy today joined other industry leaders in sending a letter to the White House calling on President Trump to quickly address recent actions by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that could unravel progress achieved under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). “The biofuels industry stands united against drastic changes to the RFS that would freeze innovation and halt investments in the production of homegrown biofuels,” stated Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor. “The changes being considered by the EPA run counter to the law and threaten the growth and prosperity of the U.S. biofuels industry, including farmers and communities across the heartland. We’re calling on the White House to put the EPA back on course before the agency does irreversible harm to the President’s agenda and goes back on his promises to rural voters.”In the letter, industry leaders called on the White House to protect cellulosic and starch-based ethanol targets from EPA cuts, to withdraw the agency’s latest notice aimed at total biofuel volumes (including biodiesel), and to reject oil industry proposals for an export-subsidy credit designed to strip the value from higher biofuel blends.Source: Growth Energy Facebook Twitter SHARE Previous articleGoodlatte Guest Worker Bill Up for Committee Vote WednesdayNext articleEast Central Indiana Corn Benefiting from Extended Grain Fill Period Hoosier Ag Todaylast_img read more

Operations director the most sought after

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. Comments are closed. Operations director the most sought afterOn 15 Jan 2002 in Personnel Today Never mind the chief executive or chairman, the hardest person to replace isthe operations director, a study claims. Interim management consultancy Executives Online asked 114 director-levelexecs which job function is the hardest to fill. Almost one in five say a good operations director is the most difficultperson to find – and is even harder to replace than the finance director,nominated by 16 per cent. Fifteen per cent suggest the IT director is the nexthardest post to fill. Only 2 per cent say the chairman is the hardest to replace, while the chiefexec was selected by just 7 per cent of the survey. Norrie Johnston, managing director of Executives Online, said: “At atime of economic downturn companies value the practical, hands-on skills thatdrive day-to-day business forward. If good operations people leave, thebottom-line impact can be felt immediately. “As a result, companies are taking care to hold on to these people –leaving fewer of them in the jobs market when vacancies come up.” Previous Article Next Articlelast_img read more

No accounting for taskforces

first_img Comments are closed. No accounting for taskforcesOn 11 Nov 2003 in Personnel Today TheKingsmill report wasn’t worth the wait. It flunked the central question of howto effectively measure peopleAtToyota in the US recently, managers were shocked to get hold of the latestemployee survey. This showed that staff felt performance ratings wereirrelevant to pay and promotion prospects, while despite all the company’s talkabout the importance of training and gaining experience in different bits ofthe firm, doing so did not enhance careers. Indulge the bosses’ delusions was thecollective view.Inresponse, the company felt it really had to prove to its staff that performanceand training mattered. So it went back over several years’ records andestablished what had happened to people who were rated highly in appraisals,those who undertook development, and those who gained experience onassignments. Sure enough, they were better paid and advanced quicker thanothers who did not. The company could put numbers on how much better they did.The system was doing what it was supposed to. Thisstory comes from Play to Your Strengths*, a scholarly new book by fourconsultants at Mercer. It strikes me as a sensibly demystifying way of lookingat the mystifying subject of human capital. HR departments should borrow sometricks from marketing, the authors suggest. As well as finding out preferencesby asking people, marketers examine spending habits. HR should do the same withbehaviour. Modelling the statistical patterns of how workers respond to therules and rewards of an organisation (the book calls it ‘internal labour marketanalysis’), ‘the facts’ about the impact of HR become clear, and “thesay-do trap” can be avoided. Takeexit interviews, for instance. Pay is often the most popular reason for leavingbecause it is a socially acceptable motive, whereas telling the truth can burnbridges. Yet a company really does need to know why people leave. The solutionis to track behaviour. People may leave from a particular grade at a particulartime, in flight from a particular manager. Model how employees move through anorganisation statistically, counsels Mercer. An objective answer will emerge,and HR efforts can be directed accordingly. Mercercalls this “the new science of human capital measurement”, whichmakes it sound a little sinister, a little ‘Taylorist’ (see box). Yet while itmay be complicated, it also makes sense in a way that most things written abouthuman capital do not. Human capital, the book says, is “the stock ofaccumulated knowledge, skills, experience, creativity, and other relevantworkforce attributes” – in other words, the full gamut of labour servicesavailable to an organisation. ‘Human capital management’, meanwhile, is aboutquantifying the value of such attributes and managing on the basis of thatknowledge. It is, therefore, subtly distinct from HR. Thatseems clear enough. So contrast it with the definition of human capitalmanagement used in last week’s report from the Accounting for People taskforceheaded by Denise Kingsmill. Human capital management (HCM), it says, is “astrategic approach to people management that focuses on the issues that arecritical to an organisation’s success”. Itis hard to imagine a worse definition. What issues? What does ‘a strategicapproach’ mean? Could you not use exactly the same words to describe humanresource management? Is HCM just a repulsive new buzzword for personnel, then?If so, I’m sure we could live without it.Froma close reading of the Kingsmill report and related website, it soon becomesclear that contributors – those who don’t sound too mystified, that is – aretalking about wholly different things. Some use HCM as a new label for the sameold same old. Others see it (correctly, I would say) as the attempt to measurethe value of human assets and the effectiveness of HR interventions.CadburySchweppes, for instance, waxes in the report about its commitment to diversity,learning and careers – what most of us would call bog-standard HR. But there isnothing about linking these policies to performance. A more recognisablyHCM-inspired approach is demonstrated by the RAC motoring organisation. Thecompany has produced a “People P&L” (yuck), which quantifies thecost of turnover, retention and absence and uses them as performance indicatorsacross business units. Inother case studies, employee opinion surveys form the mainstay of attempts tomeasure the effectiveness of people management. There is a long pedigree ofsuch surveys in HR, and no-one would deny their value. But do they reallymeasure the effectiveness of HR programmes? Or, rather, do they simply reflectwhat workers think at any given moment – the ‘say-do trap’? Thetaskforce does not have a view. In fact, once the HR world stops being sograteful that the Government is interested in their subject, I hope they cometo see that the Kingsmill taskforce does not have a view about very much atall. To summarise: companies should be encouraged to report somethingpeople-related. In a few years, it hopes a consensus will emerge about whichcategories of information provide the most insight. For the moment, anythinggoes.Thetaskforce has thus flunked the central issue that makes Mercer’s book sotimely: how do you distinguish between an effective way to measure the impactof people management and an ineffective way. Meekly, the Kingsmill report saysthat out of all the well-known approaches – the Scandia Navigator, balancedscorecard, HR benchmarking, etc – “none is widely regarded as providing acomplete answer”. Well, that was worth the wait.Sohere is another distinction: there are taskforces that wait for a consensus andtaskforces that try to build one.‘Taylorism’in a nutshellFrederickTaylor wrote The Principles of Scientific Management in 1911. These principlesbecame known as ‘Taylorism’:–Develop a ‘science’ for every job, including rules motion, standardised workimplements, and proper working conditions–Carefully select workers with the right abilities for the job –Carefully train these workers to do the job, and give them proper incentives toco-operate with the job science –Support these workers by planning their work and by smoothing the way as theygo about their jobsHowever,in reality Taylorism changed the nature of the workplace forever, introducinghierarchical leadership, split locations for office and manual work, thedivision of labour, and changing the focus of business  to products and outcomes rather than theneeds of the customer. Perhapsone of the most insidious effects of Taylorism has been ‘office envy’ – when itcomes to offices, size seems to matter.”Theprincipal object of management should be to secure maximum prosperity for theemployer, coupled with maximum prosperity for the employee,” said Taylor.Source:Cornell University Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more

We do like to buy beside the seaside…

first_imgHome » News » Housing Market » We do like to buy beside the seaside… previous nextHousing MarketWe do like to buy beside the seaside…Most valuable waterside vistas in UK – ocean views attract greatest premium.The Negotiator23rd September 20160557 Views Properties with ocean views attract a property price premium of 30.4per cent – significantly higher than other water view premiums.River views attract a 23.6per cent premium and canal views a 17.6per cent premium compared to other local homes.Burnham Market attracts greatest property price premium for a waterside view of any UK location – river views here command an 87per cent premium.The appeal of a Swallows and Amazons lifestyle continues to excite British homebuyers, with many prepared to pay a considerable premium of almost a third more for a waterside lifestyle. The most valuable waterside view for a UK property is of the ocean, attracting a 30.4per cent price premium, according to the latest research from Jackson-Stops & Staff.The news comes as the estate agent officially launches its Coast and Water division, which is dedicated to selling homes located along the more than 7,000 miles of waterside land within the UK.Having analysed more than 30 of the UK’s most sought after and popular waterside locations, the research shows that ocean views command a property price premium of almost a third compared with other properties without this benefit, while river views generate a 24per cent boost in value and 18per cent for canal views. While all water views generate a significant premium for the homes they benefit, ocean views are by far the biggest income generators.Nick Leeming, Chairman at Jackson-Stops & Staff, says, “The aspiration of owning a home with a view across water and living near features such as the ocean, rivers and canals has long been embedded in the British psyche. As an island we are surrounded by water and as a population our demand for living near the water is insatiable. As such all views across water in all the locations we analysed generated a strong house price premium for the homes they benefit – without exception.“However, homes with views of the ocean generated by far the greatest uplift – boosting a property’s value by just shy of a third, compared to homes without this benefit. But it’s not just about the views; these homes generate substantial premiums because of the lifestyle benefits that accompany them. Walking, sailing, surfing and swimming are favourite British past times and with a focus on healthy living, never before has it been more in fashion to live in an area which affords a lifestyle of this type.“Nostalgia is equally an important factor to consider. Childhood holidays on the coast and dreams of a Swallows and Amazons upbringing inspires many families to locate to waterside hot-spots where weekends are spent exploring and enjoying all of the natural surroundings and an outdoor lifestyle is encouraged.”The research also shows that Burnham Market in North Norfolk (which is now often referred to as “Chelsea-On-Sea”) is a stand-out location when it comes to waterside views. A property with a river view here will be on average 86.9per cent more expensive than properties without this boon, despite the fact that river views overall do not attract the greatest price premium of the water viewsTim Hayward, Director at Jackson-Stops & Staff’s Burnham Market branch, comments: “Purchasers in North Norfolk are buying into a lifestyle which has been popular for over ten years now. The coastline is superb, offering beautiful sandy beaches, saltmarshes teeming with wildlife and challenging sailing through the creeks and out to sea. It has become a top-class destination not only for holiday homers but increasingly for those looking to escape the rat-race and escape to the country. It’s not unusual to spot a celebrity or two and as a result of its increased popularity we’re now finding the area is thriving with independent boutiques, high class art galleries and award winning restaurants to meet the needs of the community.”Ocean viewsProperties with ocean views command an average property price premium of 30.4per cent compared to homes in coastal locations without a view. The table below shows the coastal areas in which homes with sea views attract the largest premium, according to the Jackson-Stops & Staff research.Nick Leeming (right) says, “Rock and Padstow have long been firm favourites for staycationers and as our research shows, their appeal continues unabated with a premium of more than 68per cent. Their popularity is rubbing off on other parts of the South West however and the whole of Devon with its many beaches and beautiful coastline has become incredibly sought after. Watersports and other activities are a key reason why many move here, from kite surfing, wind surfing, powerboating and surfing all equally popular. While properties located on a sea-side road and which offer far-reaching ocean views will always achieve a premium, savvy buyers might also consider investing in a property a road or two back which offers easy access but without the hefty price-tag.”ocean-view property prices Poole Harbour Burnham Market seaside properties waterside views September 23, 2016The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?
