first_imgResidents living in various communities in Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam) have complained that the Community Infrastructure Improvement Project is not delivering the kind of services it once did when compared to the past and they are calling on Agriculture Minister Noel Holder to immediately intervene.Residents complained that employees attached to the project within the local authority areas are not executing their jobs, and as such, have called for a review since management and operations of the project is increasingly criticised.Residents are of the view that the project is not properly supervised and this is creating a heavy backlog in the amount of drains that are not cleaned, while works executed do not meet minimum levels of satisfaction.When contact was made with the Chairman of the Regional Democratic Council (RDC) Devanand Ramdatt, he said he is in receipt of numerous reports from residents regarding the poor management of the project.The Regional Chairman explained that in the past, more community enhancement works were completed under the said project. Drains, road shoulders, Government buildings and compound were maintained through a similar project.According to Ramdatt, that project was much more successful since local authorities and the Regional Democratic Council had closer collaboration. He is of the view if the project is better managed, many of the concerns raised at the community level regarding drainage will be addressed.The Regional Chairman said he is very concerned about the project particularly since numerous residents are dissatisfied with the service offered. As such, he said he had requested clarity from management regarding details of the project, since there seems to be a weakness in the implementation process.He indicated that he had also requested to have such information from the Coordinator of the project but nothing has been provided to date.last_img read more

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.The program combines classroom-style sessions in tents with actual driving scenarios for both teens and their parents using Toyota’s Scion and Corolla model cars. One of the major focuses is handling the anti-lock braking system, typically known as the ABS. “The first time you slammed on the brakes (in a car with an ABS), you thought you’d broken them,” said Dean Omatsu, the program’s creative director and curriculum advisor. Indeed, inside the Toyota Corolla Goduti’s intention was to have Gutierrez feel the vibration of the brakes, especially when driving at high speed toward a set of orange cones through a puddle of water. A few feet before the cones, Goduti would order Gutierrez to brake, then turn, sending the back end of the car skidding to the left as the front end headed right. ARCADIA – Really, it was just a matter of trust. And when professional race car driver Paul Goduti told 16-year-old Michelle Gutierrez to punch the accelerator for a few car lengths then jump on the brakes, he wasn’t kidding. “Drive as fast as you can until I say stop,” said passenger Goduti of Orange on Saturday afternoon to his helmet-wearing teen driver, who was sporting a smile but looking nervous. “Forget any inhibitions you have. Remember, this isn’t your car.” Gutierrez of Moreno Valley was one of about 400 teens who, with at least one parent, made their way to the parking lot at Gate 3 of the Santa Anita Race Track this weekend to take part in the “Toyota Driving Expectations,” a free, four-hour program that teaches teens and parents defensive driving techniques. The exercise was a bit “nerve-racking” but she admitted that she learned a lot. “I liked it because I don’t ever get to drive fast,” she added. “This is a chance to get it out of my system.” Goduti said his student “passed with flying colors.” “At first, it was obvious she had reservations, but in the end, she trusted me,” he said. “The most difficult thing is to try to get them to drive irresponsibly. We’re trying to get them to learn crash avoidance skills.” Lead instructor Greg Pene of Upland who used to race formula cars and do stunt driving, said the instructors enjoy sharing what they’ve learned about safe driving with teens. “Sometimes, parents love their kids so much, they get frustrated with them (while teaching them how to drive),” he said. “We try to teach positive reinforcement rather than negative reinforcement. …They’re like little sponges, and they want to listen to us.” Monrovia parent Lori Nelson said she believed the course would be a good way for her 15-year-old daughter Nicole Nelson-Campos to experience tough driving scenarios in a safe environment. “The driving instructors are excellent,” Nelson said. “They understand about teens, and they understand about parents. They give us practical suggestions we can use right away.” Another driving exercise is the “distraction course” in which the instructors have teen and parent drivers try to use a cell phone or change CDs while driving so they can see the hazards of such actions. “It was scary at first, but driving that fast can be fun, especially watching people in the back slide off their seats,” said 15-year-old Marie Harvis of Monrovia. molly.okeon@sgvn.com (626) 578-6300, Ext. 4496160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_imgWhen considering new job opportunities or career moves, there are lots of factors that come into play. Of course people think about salary, benefits, and potential for growth. Many employees also focus on their “fit” [1] with an organization’s culture. But where does that culture come from? The Attraction-Selection-Attrition (ASA) Model [2] was developed to explain how cultures form, how they are reinforced, and why they sometimes need to be forcibly changed.Attraction: Job seekers are attracted to certain companies more than others. Maybe this is because of the company’s brand recognition, its mission, or because candidates have friends/family who work at the company and perceive a good fit. If I like my friend and she likes her employer, then I would probably like working for that company too. Organizations make a strong effort to be attractive employers. Many of my conversations with Chief HR Officers included discussions of “employer brand” and how to be known as a great place to work. One reason for using employee engagement surveys is to ensure that current employees enjoy where they work, which will make them good “brand ambassadors” who help spread the word about why their company is attractive. External candidates who perceive a good fit with the company are more likely to feel that attraction and apply for a job. Attraction is a huge help in recruiting top talent.Selection: During the interview and hiring process, managers tend to pick people who fit the company’s culture. There are inherent biases that play into this process, and candidates who are more similar to the people already working for the company are more likely to be hired. Although there are laws protecting against certain types of discrimination during hiring, managers still have a lot of leeway to determine if candidates fit the company culture. And they use it.Attrition: People who do not fit the company culture tend to leave. Sometimes, people are hired and get into the job and then realize they don’t fit. Other times the company goes through an organizational change and doesn’t feel the same to veteran employees. Sometimes employees perceive social cues from their coworkers that they don’t fit in, and feel pressured to leave. Whatever the reason, when people feel a lack of fit, they usually move on. As a result, the people who remain are the ones who like the culture and want to perpetuate it. They are also the ones who continue being brand ambassadors and hiring managers, so they reinforce this cycle by attracting and selecting the next round of similar candidates.Attraction – Selection – Attrition.The result of this cyclical process is a company with a strong culture of like-minded individuals. While that can be energizing and really powerful, it can also lead to some troubling outcomes. One issue is it drives the company toward homogeneity. Employees who all fit a strong culture tend to think and act similarly to one another, which can lead to groupthink, tunnel vision, and a lack of creativity. Most people today understand that diversity is an imperative, both socially and also for strong financial performance. The ASA model can dissolve diversity unless companies actively fight against the homogenizing process. To that end, diversity and inclusion need to be strongly mandated as core features of the culture so ASA can work in the company’s favor. Companies that are known for being inclusive attract a much wider range of job seekers, are willing to select many unique kinds of candidates, and allow employees to feel good fit even if they are different from some of their immediate coworkers.By actively fighting homogeneity, inclusive companies actively fight failure.last_img read more

first_imgJEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) – Republican Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri is doubling down on efforts to rein in big-tech companies by proposing that they be required to prove they’re not using political bias to filter content.Hawley filed the bill Wednesday. It would require companies to prove to the Federal Trade Commission that their algorithms and other ways they filter content are not biased against a party or candidate.If companies don’t do that, they would lose current legal protections that shield them from being sued over posts on their sites made by users.President Donald Trump and other Republicans have repeatedly claimed anti-conservative bias by tech companies, which tech companies have denied.Big tech has said Hawley’s bill would discourage companies from self-policing hate speech and extremist views by opening websites up to lawsuits.last_img read more
