West Ham striker Diafra Sakho is line to return against Manchester United on Sunday.Sakho was forced to miss the 2-0 defeat against Liverpool last weekend after FIFA opened investigations against the player and the east London club over his appearance against Bristol City in the fourth round of the FA Cup.The 25-year-old forward was withdrawn from the Senegal squad for the African Cup of Nations with a back injury, but scored the winner for West Ham 18 days later in the tie at Ashton Gate.FIFA found that West Ham had breached the rules for playing him while the tournament is still taking place and fined the club £71,000. Both Sakho and the Hammers were also reprimanded.Despite the threat of West Ham being kicked out of the FA Cup, Sakho is now clear to get his season back on track and co-owner David Gold has no doubts he will let his football do the talking when they face United at Upton Park.Gold, speaking on his Twitter site, said: “He is fit and available for selection.” Diafra Sakho 1

And further, being known as the company gossip does not do much to advance an employee’s credibility, reputation or career. Rather than merely trying to stop the verbiage, you need to act more assertively. The next time she approaches you with one of her tales, tell her you are not interested, and then ignore her comments and continue whatever you were doing. By making a gossip feel ignored and unimportant, you are removing some of the most important rewards for a gossip. This might or might not stop her gossiping, but it should stop her gossiping to you. Q: I have an employee who is performing well, but she complains constantly about our benefits. As a company, our pay is above average, and our benefits are average for this industry, and that’s all we can afford. This employee keeps saying that benefits were better at four of her previous jobs. How do I get her complaining to stop? A You may be dealing with a card-carrying complainer whose glass is always half empty unless it is a glass of complaints, in which case it is full. If you take care of one source of dissatisfaction for this type of person, she is likely to find another. Q: One of my co-workers is a big gossip. She is always talking about what other people are doing or not doing. I have tried to get her to stop, and I have even told her that our manager says he wants us to focus on our work and not on gossiping. She says she is not gossiping because what she is saying is the truth. Is she right? A Your fellow employee is wrong on two counts. First, gossip is idle chatter and about the affairs of other people, regardless of whether such drivel is fact or fiction. Secondly, your employee is wrong by acting in a way that contradicts what your manager has said. When employees immerse themselves in gossip, the outcome is a no-win situation. The company loses because time that should be spent on work-related matters is wasted or disrupted by inane conversations. However, this does not mean there are no solutions. For example, it may be helpful to provide this employee with more information on the costs of the benefits, as well as a clearer picture of your company’s pay scale. Some companies are leaning toward “open book management,” which provides employees with considerable financial information about the company, and that may also be worth considering. You can also let this employee know that you are open to her suggestions. If she has ideas or referrals that might help, let her know you are interested in hearing them. If she does provide them, be sure to provide fair consideration and feedback. Although this employee is quick to compare your benefits with those at her previous jobs, the fact that she has gone through four previous employers would lead one to believe that she had complaints about them, or they had some about her. Q: I told another manager a piece of confidential information that required his input. I said the information cannot go any further, and he agreed. Later that day, another employee approached me and asked about this very matter. She said she heard about it from someone who is friends with the manager that I originally told. Should I go back to him and express my concern, or should I never tell him anything confidential again? A Some people try to make themselves appear big and powerful by revealing confidential information, but the reality is that they are revealing their big powerful personal insecurities. It would be nice to never share anything confidential with this manager again, but if there are matters that require his input, it sounds like you cannot permanently shut him out. You should meet with him to express your concern. In this meeting, do not fill your comments with “you” words, such as, “How could you?” or “Why did you?” You are likely to have a more productive conversation if you use “I” words, such as, “I am puzzled how the confidential information we discussed fell into so-and-so’s hands.” The next step is to listen. If he proffers up an acceptable explanation, the case is closed. If he falls short, you should express your concern and dissatisfaction, and then ask how you can work with him to prevent this from happening again. Regardless of his pronouncements, you should be extremely discreet in what you say to him for the foreseeable future. If he develops the reputation of an individual who cannot keep confidences, he may well find that management loses confidence in him.

THE wet and often cool weather experienced in Donegal over recent weeks will come to an end over the next week or so, the BBC says.“Around the middle of next week, pressure will build – the Azores high,” said BBC weather presenter Cecilia Daly, who is based in Belfast“This would allow our weather to take on more normal summer characteristics.” The jet stream has been stuck hundreds of miles further south than normal this year.But it’s about to move north – and could bring much warmer and drier weather.Forecasters are hoping it will move north enough so that we here in Donegal also see the benefit of the weather change.Met Eireann is forecasting much drier and sunnier weather for Friday and Saturday. BBC Northern Ireland says Thursday should be much better too.Sky weather presenter Jo Wheeler said: “The blame for the current dismal summer has been laid squarely at the foot of the jet stream which is far further south than we’d expect at this time of year.“This has left Britain and Ireland at the mercy of active frontal systems coming off the Atlantic, and continues to do so.“The hope is, that the jet stream will move further north, allowing high pressure to build in the south which will give us some defence against changeable conditions.“There was some hope that that would happen this week, but it didn’t. And that shows how difficult it is to forecast.” AND NOW THE GOOD NEWS…SUMMER FINALLY ON THE WAY, SAY FORECASTERS was last modified: July 18th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:AND NOW THE GOOD NEWS…SUMMER FINALLY ON THE WAYdonegaldaily weatherSAY FORECASTERS

He worked out four to five hours a day to move himself into a starting position this season. “It sucked because I didn’t get to play a lot,” Burrows said. “Even though I did try hard, coach told me to work harder.” Burrows said he mostly worked on his speed and footwork all summer with workouts centering on his arms, chest, shoulders and back. He also ran after every practice. “After practice run a mile,” Burrows said. “Take the weekends off and go back to work on Monday and start all over again.” Burrows also said he had to work on the mental side of the game by working harder at remembering plays better. Mahlstede considers Burrows improvement to be 300 percent and says it shows that he wants to play a lot. Burrows also attended several football camps to improve his skills. He said starting isn’t this season’s only reward. “It feels good not to be on the scout team,” Burrows said. “I don’t get the crap knocked out of me by the first-team defense.” Burrows is now starting for the offensive line. Mahlstede thinks Burrows might draw some attention by Division I colleges because of his size and work ethic. Playing college football, as well as possibly turning pro one day are only two of Burrows’ goals. “I have a lot of goals,” Burrows said. “I want to make CIF. I want to go play in the 605 game and I hope to get a scholarship by the end of the season.” Burrows said he ultimately wants to play professional football and knows it might not work out, but he will have an education to fall back on. He is looking to help his team by continuing to work hard with his teammates. “I’m just like one of the other guys,” he said. “They put in hard work, I put in hard work. And we do everything together, like family.” Along with hard work, Burrows looks to provide some leadership as well. “Our captains are there,” Burrows said. “But not everybody listens to the captains, so you kind of have to help them out. As a senior, you have to show some leadership.” Burrows said it felt like progress came to him slowly, but it was all worth it. “It feels good,” he said. “I want to be out there doing my best. I don’t want to mess up. I want everybody to see that I’ve worked this hard.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
