Logo sparks more criticism

Logo sparks more criticismOn 25 Jul 2000 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article • Another comment to add to Julian Burch’s thoughts about the CIPD (Guru, 18 July). Claire McCarron e-mailed us to criticise the CIPD logo as “cheap, trashy and gimmicky”. As for the firework symbol, she adds, “It may represent ‘sparking’ a new era of the IPD, but as a current student I am disappointed that the next certificate I receive will have this bland symbol on it. “Bring back the old logo, at least it had some semblance of professionalism about it, and I thought that was the image the CIPD was trying to create.” Well, you can’t win them all.

Accidental death verdict on baker

first_imgAn inquest jury returned a verdict of ‘accidental death’ after a baker was killed in a blast at a pie factory in Huddersfield last year.Baker David Cole died after a build-up of gas in a 30-year-old oven at the Andrew Jones Pies Factory on 10 April last year. The inquest heard that gas had built up in the baking chamber as staff tried to light the oven between 10 to 20 times. It also heard that, when the oven exploded, the ‘safety’ explosion relief panel failed to act as it should have because it had been fixed with the wrong kind of bolts. In the blast, the oven door hit Cole with such force that he was flung across the bakery and the ceiling collapsed on top of him.In a statement, Andrew Jones said: “The tragic factory accident and death of David Cole last year was a huge shock to everyone and one that will never ever be forgotten. David was a loyal colleague and friend and is sadly missed by everyone. We will always remember him in our thoughts and prayers and our condolences go to his family and friends.”>>Shops reopen after fire tragedy at Andrew Jones Pieslast_img read more

Rockets ‘have the team to beat’ next season, Austin Rivers says

Austin Rivers is confident in the Rockets.Houston re-signed the 26-year-old guard to a two-year contract, reportedly worth the veterans’ minimum, earlier this week. Rivers told ESPN he had offers elsewhere for more money but returned to the Rockets because he believes they have a chance to win a championship. The Rockets were at the center of controversy last month when a report surfaced saying the relationship between star James Harden and Chris Paul was “unsalvageable.” Rivers, however, said he didn’t see any issues.”I know nothing about any of that. I don’t know where that’s coming from,” Rivers said during an interview with TMZ in June. “A lot of fantasy tales being told right now. … It’s definitely not true. I didn’t see any issues between any of them. It’s just made up news, fake news like most of the stuff you see on these Instagram pages.”The Rockets’ top target this summer was Jimmy Butler, according to multiple reports. But, they missed out on him when the wing was sent to the Heat in a sign-and-trade. “Now that the league is wide open, I just saw an opportunity,” Rivers said. “You can’t really put a price on happiness. The goal was to come back to Houston all along. I think we have the team to beat.”Austin Rivers had offers in $5.7M midlevel range but took the vet minimum from Rockets. “Now that the league is wide open, I just saw an opportunity. You can’t really put a price on happiness. The goal was to come back to Houston all along. I think we have the team to beat.”— Tim MacMahon (@espn_macmahon) July 1, 2019Rivers began the season with the Wizards and ended up signing with the Rockets after he was waived by the Suns following a trade in December. He averaged 8.7 points and 2.3 assists in 28.6 minutes per game during his time with Houston.

If you lose in a convincing way you accept it, but in this way it is very hard to accept.“We tried our best but unfortunately it was not enough,” said “Micho” after Abdallah El Said’s 89th-minute strike, from a Mohamed Salah assist, gave Egypt a 1-0 win in the Group D encounter in Port-Gentil.“This level of competition demands total focus of concentration on details that decide games.“We couldn’t keep that concentration up to the last moment — when we were supposed to close the game out we allowed a counterattack and the experience and quality of Salah made the difference“Now we need to pick up the pieces and look forward in order to see who will play the last game — it is hard to say who will play in the last game, we have certain injuries like (goalkeeper Denis) Onyango. ****PREVIEWUganda Cranes start their final AFCON 2017 game against Mali today with a team minus three key players who started the heart-breaking match against Egypt.Striker Geoffrey Massa has been dropped to the bench while goalkeeper Denis Onyango and defender Denis Timothy Awany will not be part of one final push for a goal and win due to injuries.Cranes will hope to wind up their return to the high table of African football with a goal, and win, when they take on Mali today.“We came here to play three Cup finals — the first we lost on a penalty to Ghana and the second we lost in the last minute on the counterattack. We will see how we play the last match but the ambition remains that we want to go home with pride and with a win.” said Uganda coach Milutin Sredojevic as he looked forward to third and final ‘final’.Uganda, already eliminated after the Egypt defeat, will hope to bow out of their first Cup of Nations in 39 years by registering a first goal and a first win since their last appearance in 1978.Uganda’s last goal was scored by legend Phillip Omondi as Uganda marched over Nigeria 2-1 in March 1978 ***FT: Mali 1 (Bissouma 73) Uganda 1 (Miya 70) ; Egypt 1 (Salah 11) Ghana 0QUARTERS:Senegal vs Cameroon;  Burkina Faso vs Tunisia ; Morocco vs Egypt;  DR Congo vs GhanaAfrica Cup of Nations Group DEgypt         3 2 1 0 2 0 7 – qualifiedGhana       3 2 0 1 2 1 6 – qualifiedMali           3 0 2 1 1 2 2Uganda    3 0 1 2 1 3 1Farouk Miya scored a historic goal, but it was not enough to give Uganda their first win of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations final.Miya grabbed Uganda’s first goal of AFCON 2017 in the second half versus Mali, the first goal at this level by Cranes since Phillip Omondi scored against Nigeria in March 14, 1978.Mali responded soon after on a rain-drenched Oyem pitch, Yves Bissouma equalizing soon after.Belgium-based Miya last year also scored the lone goal against Comoros that put Uganda into their first Nations Cup finals – since Omondi’s 1978 team.Mali’s midfielder Yves Bissouma (L) challenges Uganda’s defender Godfrey Walusimbi during the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations group D football match between Uganda and Mali in Oyem on January 25, 2017.

‘We’ll deal with pressure’: Kimmich defiant as Bayern fall seven points behind

first_img“There is still a lot of work to do, the level is very high this year in the Bundesliga, with a lot of teams playing well.“We’re working under the motto ‘one game at a time’.“We have a lot of things to correct in defence and attack, these are just small details, but they are all important.”Favre warned not to rule out Bayern making a charge up the table when the Bundesliga resumes after next week’s international break.“We’re first, Gladbach are second and Bayern are third, when they keep playing like they did in the first half – oh boy, look out.”– ‘Crazy game’ –After Robert Lewandowski twice gave Bayern the lead at Signal Iduna Park against his former club, Dortmund captain Marco Reus hit two equalisers before substitute Alcacer struck in the 73rd minute.Lewandowski had two goals disallowed in the second half — including one in added time — to the delight of the home crowd.Favre admitted he was relieved to go into the break only 1-0 down after Bayern dominated the first half.“We couldn’t keep the ball, it was very intensive and I have rarely seen Bayern so strong in the first 30 minutes, it was hard for us,” said Favre.“I was happy to only go in 1-0 in the break, as I knew it would be impossible for them to maintain that tempo. It was a crazy game and a super advert for the Bundesliga.” Dortmund, Germany | AFP | Joshua Kimmich insisted faltering Bayern Munich “can deal with the pressure” after a 3-2 defeat at Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund on Saturday left them seven points off the top and coach Niko Kovac under increasing scrutiny.“If there’s anyone who doesn’t get what is at stake here, then they’ll never get it,” said defender Kimmich.“The thing that we absolutely wanted to avoid has happened.”Paco Alcacer scored Dortmund’s winner 17 minutes from time as they twice came from behind to move further clear of Bayern, who remain third in the table.The result piled the pressure on Kovac whose side’s chances of winning a seventh straight title in his first season in charge suffered another blow.Bayern could even drop to fourth on Sunday if RB Leipzig win at home to Bayer Leverkusen.“We need to make sure we don’t completely lose touch with the top,” added Kimmich.“We are seven points behind Dortmund and Leipzig can still overtake us. The pressure is on us, but we can deal with it.”The Bavarian giants have now lost three of their last six Bundesliga games after defeats by Hertha Berlin and Borussia Moenchengladbach, and managed just eight points from the last 21 available.“We allowed ourselves to be beaten twice on the counter, that shouldn’t have happened,” fumed Kovac.“We should have been more compact and unfortunately we lost a game which should have been a draw. We invited Dortmund to come and press us.”Lucien Favre’s Dortmund remain unbeaten and four points clear of second-placed Borussia Moenchengladbach.“Only we will be German champions,” sang Dortmund fans at the final whistle.However, Favre dismissed any notions of winning the league in his first season in charge and warned that Bayern should not be written off.“We are very happy to have 27 points after 11 games — but no more than that,” said the Swiss coach.
