I have had a satisfying time working in HR as a generalist for 15 years, butI feel it is time for a change. I’m not interested in moving into consultancy –I want a complete change. Any ideas for careers where my skills would be valuedand could be satisfyingly applied? Jo Redgwell, consultant, interim division, Macmillan Davies Hodes They say ‘a change is as good as a rest’. You don’t say if your experiencehas been gained in any one sector, but rather than turning away from 15 years’experience have you considered changing your environment? More and morecommercial HR professionals are moving into the public sector, for example.They find themselves invigorated by the new challenges of working for anorganisation with a limited finance pool and having to think as laterally aspossible. If this isn’t suitable, have you considered a move within your currentorganisation? You have a firm understanding of your current employer’s visionand business goals and this could be used in a different capacity. As a generalist, you have an excellent understanding of employment law andinterpreting policy. Have you thought about counselling of some sort – perhapsat a Citizens’ Advice Bureau – as you are used to problem solving, research andcoaching, and representing clients at tribunals. Or what about taking on an office management role with your experience ofmanaging budgets, assisting business growth and client-facing roles. If you are certain you want a complete change I recommend speaking to aspecialist careers counsellor who can measure your competencies against avariety of careers. Cliff Dixon, consultant, Chiumento Responding to a request for a complete change is difficult without morespecific knowledge about you. Are you prepared to study for such a change, orinvest in a new sector through a drop in salary? In your career you will have gained many transferable skills such ascommunication, interpersonal, coaching and so on, which will have relevance inother areas. You can test your suitability for other sectors and roles throughan interest inventory – available from the British Psychological Society, or,less formally, network with business and personal contacts you know who haveexperience in areas other than your own. Consider getting professional help from careers advisers – they will bevaluable in challenging your ideas before you commit. Whichever route you follow for your research, network hard to spread theword of your search, requirements and availability. Make good use ofrecruitment agencies who can help you identify likely matches. Peter Sell, joint managing director, DMS Consultancy You should look at your career to date and analyse which parts of the rolehave given you the greatest satisfaction. Is it the people aspects of HR orhave you more of an interest in administration? If you have worked as part ofthe management team, then a role managing a business may have some appeal. Drawup a list ranking the aspects of your career in terms of satisfaction. Thiswill help you focus on the type of work you could consider. Next, think about what interests you. Are you someone who is motivated byhelping people and may therefore want to work in the voluntary sector? If youlike holidays, a career in the travel industry may be of interest. The skills of an HR generalist are often undervalued by organisations, butthey can be transferred to many roles.

It has been announced that Buttigieg received 26.2% of the share of votes with 13 delegates, while Bernie Sanders got 26.1% with 12 delegates. This is the first in a series of state-by-state votes, known as primaries and caucuses. With the Iowa caucus, Buttigieg is the first openly LGBT+ candidate to earn presidential primary delegates in a major party’s nomination process. While at his caucus watch party, he called his husband, Chasten, the “future first gentleman of the United States.” The next hurdle for Buttigieg is the New Hampshire primary, about which he states: “by all indications, we are going on to New Hampshire victorious.” His main contenders are Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren. 38-year old Buttigieg attended Oxford University from 2004 to 2007 as a Rhodes scholar, receiving a first class Bachelor of Arts degree in Politics, Philosophy, and Economics. In the American Rhodes Scholars-Elect document from May 2005, Buttigieg expressed his career aspirations as “public service, academia, law.” Pete Buttigieg has emerged successful in the Iowa caucus, the first vote by the Democratic Party for its Presidential candidate. Katharine Wilkinson, author and environmentalist, told The New Yorker last year that Buttigieg was an impressive debater, and “curated this great collection of whiskey from around the world”. He said was eager to begin his studies at Oxford, though “as a Mid-westerner”, he was “concerned about adjusting to the warmer English climate.” He was a member of Pembroke College. While at Oxford, he was editor of the Oxford International Review and co-founded the Democrat Renaissance Project. Jeremy Farris, his old flatmate, told The New Yorker that he taught himself Norwegian through reading a book on the toilet while in Oxford. In the days before his exams, he “boarded a cargo ship – shopping goods across the ocean – to isolate himself before the multiple days of tests.”

Garber doesn’t recommend soluble fertilizers for shrubs in the lawn. Soluble fertilizers are in a quickly usable form, he said, but because of that form they also leach out of the soil much faster than granular fertilizers. You’d need to apply them more often. But the main reason for the three-meal approach is that nitrogen, the key element for growth and color in plants, doesn’t last very long around shrubs. What the plants don’t use, the rain fairly quickly washes, or “leaches,” out of the soil. Shrubs need three square “meals” a year, says a University of Georgia expert. It’s time for “breakfast” now. When to fertilize Time applications carefully Nature’s fertilizing cycle Put fertilizer in the right place Don’t fertilize during the summer. Normally intense heat and frequent dry spells make Georgia summers a time to maintain shrubs, not stimulate growth. Fertilizers with timed-release pellets of nitrogen, though, are less likely to injure roots, Garber said. The idea is to put only as much nitrogen into the soil as the plant can take out in a few weeks. That saves fertilizer and money. It also keeps the excess nitrogen out of the groundwater. Choose the right type of fertilizer Follow up with a “lunchtime” application in May. Then top off the year with a lighter meal in September. Specialty fertilizers sold for specific plants, such as azalea-camellia or evergreen fertilizers, cost more. And you don’t really need them. “A general-purpose fertilizer is all you need for most plants,” Garber said. “We have a very long growing season,” Garber said. “A spring application of nitrogen will have leached out of the soil in six to eight weeks. So we make small applications. We use and lose that nitrogen, then come back with another small application.” Nitrogen leaches quickly “Shrubs are about to start spring growth,” said Mel Garber, an Extension Service horticulturist with the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. “Plants have to have nitrogen to grow. They have to have time, too, to put that nitrogen into the leaf and stem tissue before they can use it.” If you’re waiting for the best time to fertilize your shrubs, Garber said, wait no more. “If you haven’t already done it,” he said, “now is the best time.” In the wild, Garber says, plants recycle their food. Leaves, berries and spent flowers drop off and decay, breaking down into nutrients the plants’ roots take up and use again. It’s a gradual process. Lighter doses of fertilizer three times during the year also reduce the risk of injuring plants by overfertilizing them. The six- to nine-month formulations can double the fertilizer’s effective time. But don’t expect the full six to nine months of active fertilizer. The high heat and humidity of Georgia summers release the fertilizer faster. Timed-release fertilizers are popular. But split applications of any high-nitrogen general-purpose fertilizer such as 18-6-12 or 12-4-4 are also safe, effective and efficient, Garber said. In March and May, a normal application for established shrubs is a level tablespoonful of fertilizer per foot of plant height. For young plants, use only a teaspoonful per foot. And in September, use a slightly reduced rate. The plant’s feeder roots — not the thick main roots near the trunk — take up the fertilizer. To best get the fertilizer to these roots, scatter it around the drip line, a line under the tips of the branches. The feeder roots, Garber said, are just inside to just beyond the drip line.
Governor Wolf Requests Federal Aid to Assist Residents, Businesses for October Flooding in North Central PA
Press Release, Weather Safety Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf today announced he has requested disaster declarations through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to the President for Bradford, Centre, Lycoming and Sullivan counties and through the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) for Lycoming and Centre counties. The requests were made in response to significant flooding in north-central Pennsylvania on October 21 that reached $33.2 million in damages, according to estimates.“After my trip there right after the flooding, I understood that the devastation in North Central Pennsylvania is more significant and wide-spread than we have seen recently in the commonwealth. These two programs are the best options available to provide financial assistance to both local governments and citizens who have been impacted by this flooding,” said Governor Wolf. “We’ve worked closely with local, county and state partners on multiple damage assessments, and we are confident that we meet the federal criteria for both declarations.”The major disaster declaration through FEMA will provide federal funding to local, county and state governments, as well as certain eligible non-profits in those counties through the Public Assistance program. The funds will reimburse costs associated with the response to and recovery from the flooding. Eligible expenses include but are not limited to, costs associated with paying overtime, repairs to damaged infrastructure, equipment rentals, materials, search and rescue operations, and opening and operating shelters. That data was then relayed to the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency, which tracked and totaled the costs to present to the Governor.The overall estimated total costs associated with the major disaster declaration request are $33.2 million, which exceeds the commonwealth’s federally-established threshold of $18.1 million. It is important to note that total costs may fluctuate as applications for assistance are reviewed at both the state and federal levels. It is not known when the President will decide to grant or deny disaster assistance.If the Governor’s request is approved, applicants can be reimbursed up to 75% of the costs incurred on eligible expenses.The SBA declaration would provide low-interest loans to homeowners, renters and businesses with uninsured losses of 40 percent or more of their estimated fair market value. The SBA criteria of at least 25 potential applicants that sustained such losses was met in Lycoming and Centre counties.Governor Wolf signed a state proclamation of disaster emergency, which is required to request federal aid, on Nov. 16.Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf Governor Wolf Requests Federal Aid to Assist Residents, Businesses for October Flooding in North Central PA SHARE Email Facebook Twitter November 16, 2016
Ighalo gave a good fight in the chase for the gong after scoring three goals in four matches in all competitions in the month under review but his contributions are not enough to help him win. This award is coming weeks after being voted the Premier League player of the month and PFA Fans’ Premier League Player of the Month for the month of February. His impressive displays have helped Man United close the top-four gap on Chelsea – with just three points between the two clubs. He also played a crucial role in their Europa League campaign as they are one leg into the quarterfinals with their 5-0 win on the road over LASK before coronavirus crippled all activities. Fernandes has shown he is a proven goal scorer way before joining the Red Devils after scoring 63 goals and 52 assists in 137 matches for Sporting CP.
