first_img Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. Thisweek’s guruGoodeggs in hot water over abusive languageDoyou remember the saga of ‘nitty gritty’? HRprofessionals were being warned last year not to use the phrase because itreferred to the abuse suffered by Africans on slave ships. It’snow the turn of police officers and ministers. Home Office minister John Denhamwas heckled from the floor at a recent Police Federation conference after usingthe saying. Many police forces have banned the use of the word.  Clearlynone of them read Guru. If they did, they would know that the phrase originatedin the black civil rights movement of the 1960s and was used to describe hardbargaining.Goodegg is also banned. Apparently, it is derived from egg and spoon, which isrhyming slang for ‘coon’. Do we believe this, or do we think it is ‘politicalcorrectness gone mad’? Has anyone been called a good egg since the heyday ofgap-toothed comedy actor Terry Thomas? Insightful information can be sent toGuru on the e-mail address below.Jobcentre bans friendly facesTalkingof sensitive words, a Jobcentre has come under fire after it refused to acceptan advert asking for ‘friendly’ staff.TheBolton Jobcentre informed Travel Counsellors that the wording for an advertisementfor a catering manager at the staff cafe was discriminatory because “somepeople may perceive they are friendly even if you don’t”.Bemusedtravel agency owner Dominic Speakman said: “It’s just ridiculous that youcan’t use ‘friendly’ in an advert these days.”  Canyou imagine the stir in the jobcentre if the advertised vacancy had read: ‘Thenitty gritty of this new role is that the job candidate has to be very friendlyand an all round good egg.’Archivereaches real dead end…ANorwegian museum received a tragic lesson in the importance of effectiveknowledge management after a member of staff, somewhat inconveniently, took thepassword to its electronic library to his grave.Theemployee, who was instrumental in setting up the museum’s archive of 1,600books and documents, died without revealing the vital password information toany of his colleagues at work. Asa result, museum director Ottar Grepstad has had to make an appeal on nationalradio calling on the world’s hackers to break into the archive.Bodyof evidence wins tribunalAfuneral director who lifted the lid of a coffin in front of relatives to checkif he had the right body has won his unfair dismissal case and £4,715 incompensation. StevenSim told a Glasgow employment tribunal that he had delivered a body to a churchfor the next day’s service when the priest noticed that the nameplate waswrong. Heopened up the casket in front of relatives and found it contained the wrongbody. Sim– who was subsequently dismissed – won his tribunal because he was givenunclear instructions and a ‘heavy workload’. Guru would have thought this wasinevitable for pall bearers.

first_imgHome » News » Marketing » Rightmove shares slide as agents grumble previous nextMarketingRightmove shares slide as agents grumbleRightmove customers give negative response to data sharing.The Negotiator27th February 201701,978 Views Rightmove announced full year results on Friday 24th February, reporting further success. Pre-tax profits rose from £137.1m in 2015 to £161.5m in 2016, up by almost 18 per cent. Revenues rose by 15 per cent to £220m. So why, on that day, did their shares slide down a steep hill – down 5.8 per cent to £40, wiping over £200 million off its value?Rightmove Chairman, Scott Forbes said, “Our audience, best in class platforms and significant property inventory advantage coupled with our focus on innovation at the core of our business drives our value proposition for the benefit of both our trade customers and consumers. Property data has always been at the core of what we do and we are excited about continuing to harness the power of our data to drive further transparency and efficiency in the property market, predict market opportunities and drive success for our customers and consumers.”There’s no doubt that Rightmove is doing well for its investors, so it is possible that the fall was due to the announcement of Nick McKittrick’s (pictured right) forthcoming retirement, as the national papers deduced, but could there also be growing unrest among Rightmove’s 20,121 Agency and New Homes customers?RIGHTMOVE CUSTOMER SENTIMENTOn Friday, anger grew about the news that Rightmove is to support a new venture in which the entire database of Rightmove’s 20,000 agency customers is to be subject to a ‘major study’ by The Property Academy, a trading name of Estate Agency Events, a commercial organisation owned by Peter Knight, who said,“We have decided to undertake the first ever, independent appraisal of all estate agents. We will identify and shine a light on the very best and provide them with opportunities to stand out from the crowd. The search is already underway, with every estate and letting agency branch included. We are in the process of analysing hundreds of thousands of data points and conducting mystery shops involving tens of thousands of telephone and email enquiries. The Property Academy has teamed up with Rightmove for this new initiative and we are very excited to be working closely with Rightmove as our primary data source.”Rightmove’s head of marketing Iain Kennedy said, “We’re excited to be partnering with the Property Academy and offering our market-leading tools and data to help with their ambitious new study that will recognise excellence in the industry. The appraisal will make use of Rightmove data from 25m interactions with agents and consumers, as well as reviewing the performance of over 4m individual property listings.”NEGATIVE REACTIONThe reaction from Rightmove member agents has been less than supportive, with many viewing it as “an unwelcome intrusion to our business,” a “misuse of our confidential data” and a “money-grabbing scheme”. Other customers, who did not wish to be named for obvious reasons, said that it is outrageous that a commercial organisation such as Estate Agency Events, should be allowed access to – and use of  – their company data generated through their business operations with the portal, which they believe should be confidential.We’d like to hear more views from estate and lettings agents.

Shan Byrne, commander, Destroyer Squadron (DESRON) 15. “This event leveraged the unique capabilities of the P-8 and MH-60R platforms to work in conjunction with DESRON 15 destroyer ships to create a potent anti-submarine warfare (ASW) strike group.”Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyers USS John S. McCain (DDG 56), USS Wayne E. Meyer (DDG 108) and USS Kidd (DDG 100) participated in USWEX.“A lot of the ships in our area of responsibility do not get many opportunities to integrate with the strike group to conduct ASW prosecution,” said Lt. j.g. Courtney Keiser, DESRON 15 ASW officer. “This was a great opportunity to bring multiple assets and use planning tools to execute a whole exercise from start to finish. As a result, we know areas we have improved and where we can improve. “Along with these surface ships, a U.S. Navy submarine acted as the opposing force.“My crew enjoyed the opportunity to train with advanced surface and aerial ASW platforms,” said the submarine’s commanding officer. “This type of training is invaluable for improving both my crew’s combat skills, as well as the skills of our surface and air squadron ASW assets.”PATRECONFOR 7th Fleet is also known as Task Force 72,lead expeditionary maritime patrol and reconnaissance forces in support of 7th Fleet operations ready to engage tomorrow’s adversaries. They promote regional security and enhance theater security cooperation through close interoperation with allied forces, friendly nations and other U.S. military services.“USWEX allowed us a good baseline to begin USS George Washington 2014 patrol,” said Lt. John Peach, of DESRON 15. “It gave everyone an opportunity to better understand individual roles and responsibilities.”GWCSG is on patrol in the 7th Fleet area of responsibility supporting security and stability in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.[mappress]Press Release, June 23, 2014; Image: Wikimedia View post tag: Carrier Ships in the George Washington Carrier Strike Group (GWCSG) completed an undersea warfare exercise (USWEX), June 9-11.

first_imgPembroke College will donate to a fund set up for Harun Jama, who was murdered outside college owned accommodation this month.Jama, 16, was found stabbed on 3 January near a children’s playground in Friars Wharf, Oxford, across from Pembroke’s Geoffrey Arthur building.Pembroke JCR President, Carolina Earle, proposed a motion to donate £200 to the Harun Jama’s JustGiving page, set up by his friend Jamal Madar.The JCR voted to donate some proceeds from a charity auction in Hillary term. The page aims to raise £2,000 for the Human Relief foundation to build two wells in Ghana in Harun’s memory.The motion acknowledged that Jama was “a greatly loved member of his home community”, and that his murder “has deeply shocked the Pembroke community”.During the meeting it transpired that the motion was unconstitutional, as the JCR can only give money to charity directly through the charity ballot later in term.The motion was then amended to propose a donation of some of the revenue from this term’s Auction for Promises Charity event to Jama’s JustGiving fund.It also proposed to “officially express the condolences of the Pembroke community to, and in commemoration of, Harun Jama”.The motion passed unanimously.Carolina told Cherwell: “The murder of Harun Jama was untimely and brutal. The nature and the proximity of the fatal attack being just metres from one of Pembroke’s main sites of accommodation has meant that Jama’s murder was one that has significantly affected the Pembroke community.“We wish to extend our support to the grieving members of Harun’s family and friends, and we will be donating the proceeds of a Pembroke charity event to a fund created in Harun’s memory, by his friend Jamal Madar.”Jamal Madar described Jama as a “teenager with the biggest, whitest smile”, who “had the best of characters towards his friends and especially elders”.His JustGiving page, created in his friend’s memory, has raised over £850, achieving more than 40 per cent of its aim.last_img read more
