first_imgPay board is elected to revisit London weightingOn 23 Oct 2001 in Personnel Today For the first time in 30 years an independent panel has been appointed tolook at whether London weighting needs to be changed to keep pace with theincreasing cost of living and working in the capital. The Greater London Authority’s assembly has commissioned the panel tore-examine how much more London employers should pay their staff than workerselsewhere in the country. The pay board will consider the higher cost of housing, travel, higherconsumer costs and wear and tear. The seven-member panel, which has been drawn from public, private, tradeunion and academic spheres, will also look at how pay weighting can contributeto improved staff recruitment and retention. Nick Page, CIPD adviser on rewards, hopes that the committee will take intoaccount the high cost of living which is faced by London commuters who liveacross the South East region. “It should now be looked at as South East weighting and I hope thepanel will take this into account,” he said. The panel will consider the growth of reward packages and the implicationsfor people located at the geographical boundaries. It will also investigate thelinks between London weighting and increasing house prices. Committee chairman William Knight is keen to get feedback from London-basedemployers and employees who live in the capital. www.london.gov.uk Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed.

With Carnival scrapped, Rio’s Sambadrome hosts vaccinations

first_imgRIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — In a normal year, Rio de Janeiro’s Sambadrome would be preparing for its great moment of the year: the world’s most famous Carnival parade. But a week before what should be the start of Carnival, the pandemic has replaced pageantry. The great celebration has been put on hold until next year as Rio struggles to quash a rise in COVID-19 cases. The city on Saturday opened a drive-thru immunization station at the Sambadrome, where a line of cars queued up on a broad avenue built for floats. Officials warn they’ll have no tolerance for those who try to celebrate with open street parades or clandestine parties.last_img read more

COVID-19: Jakarta limits Nyepi rituals, suspends prayers at mosque, church for two weeks

first_imgJakarta Governor Anies Baswedan has announced that the city will limit upcoming Nyepi (Hindu Day of Silence) ceremonies and suspend mass prayers in places of worship, including Friday prayer at mosques and Sunday service at churches, for the next two weeks amid the COVID-19 pandemic.”We agree to suspend all communal worship activities for two weeks. We urge citizens to pray at home during this time,” Anies said during a press briefing at City Hall on Thursday.The decision followed a discussion with the Jakarta Religious Harmony Forum and all religious leaders in the capital. The policy will be reviewed again after two weeks, Anies said. “Furthermore, during Nyepi, Hindus are required to stay at home and reflect on themselves and this is in accordance with the social distancing measure called for by the government,” said Nengah.Previously, the Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI) issued a fatwa on compulsory Muslim prayers during the COVID-19 pandemic, including not permitting Muslims to perform Friday prayers in areas where COVID-19 had spread “uncontrollably”.Following the governor’s instruction, the Istiqlal Mosque in Jakarta, which previously insisted on holding Friday mass prayer despite the MUI’s warnings, finally agreed to cancel Friday prayers for two weeks.“We’re also urging all mosques in Jakarta not to hold Friday prayers and daily prayers in congregation in the next two weeks. Please replace with prayers at home,” Istiqlah Mosque management chair Cdre. (ret) Asep Saepudin said. (aly)Topics : He went on to say the policy had been put in place to stem the transmission of the coronavirus disease, as Jakarta continued to see a rising number of confirmed COVID-19 cases, which stood at 210 on Thursday, including 17 fatal cases.“Last week we urged Muslim citizens to bring their own prayer mats [to mosques], but today we have agreed to cancel two Friday mass prayers in the next two weeks,” Anies said.Hindu leader I Nengah Dharma of the Jakarta chapter of Parisada Hindu Dharma Indonesia said the Melasti purification ritual — part of the Nyepi ceremony — would be performed in Segara Cilincing Hindu Temple in North Jakarta on Sunday and attended by 10 participants only.The Tawur Agung Kesanga ceremony on March 24, to be held a day before Nyepi on March 25, will also be limited to only 10 to 15 participants in Aditya Jaya Hindu temple in Rawamangun, East Jakarta.last_img read more

Stanford ends soccer’s unbeaten streak

first_img“In every position of the field they’ve got quality,” McAlpine said of the Cardinal. “They have  a chemistry about them that’s very good and when you have that is difficult to break down and difficult to deal with.”  Although the final score indicated a close game, Stanford dominated statistically throughout the match. The Trojans had trouble dealing with Macario as sophomore goalkeeper Anna Smith faced 26 shots and was forced to make eight saves in the game. Sophomore forward Penelope Hocking fights with a Stanford defender for the ball in USC’s loss at McAlister Field Saturday. (Yannick Peterhans | Daily Trojan) The No. 3 USC women’s soccer team fell to No. 2 Stanford Saturday at home in a tight 3-2 battle for its first loss of the season. The Trojans are now 7-1-1 on the year.  The Trojans also notched 20 fouls while Stanford had only 10, and USC also received three yellow cards in the second half. Meanwhile, the Trojan offense only got off six shots — their lowest total of the year — with only three shots on goal.   The loss will set USC back in the hunt for its first outright Pac-12 title, while Stanford will have a headstart in taking the conference crown for the fifth year in a row.  The goal put McKeown back at the top of USC’s season leaderboard, but her position alone there was short-lived. Hocking tallied a goal of her own off a pass from graduate defender Natalie Ward just two minutes later to tie her teammate with 8 goals. The bright spot for the Trojans, as has often been the case, was the continued success of Hocking and McKeown. Their two scores in the first half were vital in keeping USC in the game, but they were unable to pull another one out of the bag during the second half.   “It’s an opportunity for us to really check ourselves … and figuring out how to be a little bit better in terms of the small moments in the game that could’ve changed the game,” McAlpine said. “We played a little bit frantically.”center_img For Stanford, the win is proof that its loss to unranked Pepperdine was a fluke and that it is still the powerhouse it was to start out the season. As for USC, the team is likely to drop a few spots in the rankings, and each Pac-12 matchup from now on will carry extra significance because it can’t afford to lose many more games.   However, after Hocking’s goal USC was stymied by Stanford’s defense for the rest of the game — and the Trojans’ 2-1 lead quickly evaporated. Macario scored the equalizer after dribbling through USC’s defense four minutes later. She notched the eventual game winner to close out the first half on a shot that bounced off the left post and in.  “I think both teams were a little fatigued by the time the game ended,” said head coach Keidane McAlpine of the dropoff in action during the second half.   USC tied it up just six minutes later thanks to the partnership of junior forward Tara McKeown and sophomore forward Penelope Hocking, which the Trojans have relied on all season. Hocking slid the ball in perfect position for McKeown to fire it into the back of the net off one touch. The second half was like a whole new game, and the scoring was over.  All of the scoring was concentrated in the first half of the match. The Cardinal struck first after junior forward Madison Haley headed in a long free kick by junior forward Catarina Macario.  USC will now play two more tough Pac-12 opponents as it travels to Arizona to play Arizona State Thursday and Arizona three days later. Both teams are quietly having solid seasons, and those games will be must-wins for the Trojans if they want to keep their Pac-12 hopes in strong position.last_img read more
