She said two other companies are also planning to hire older apprentices.Barclays said over-50-year-olds had some advantages over younger apprentices, who are aged 16-24.“There is no ceiling on high anybody can go,” Mike Thompson, Barclays head of apprenticeships told the Sunday Times.“Older people have more life experience, and can show more empathy. They will have had a mortgage, they will know how to budget and how to support customers.”Barclays is still considering whether its older apprentices will earn more than the standard rate paid to younger trainees, of about £9.15 an hour in London and £7.85 elsewhere. whatsapp Barclays to hire the over-50s as apprentices center_img whatsapp Tags: NULL Show Comments ▼ Express KCS More From Our Partners Inside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgKamala Harris keeps list of reporters who don’t ‘understand’ her: reportnypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.org‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comWhy people are finding dryer sheets in their mailboxesnypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comPuffer fish snaps a selfie with lucky divernypost.comlast_img read more

Shootings kill or injure 19 U.S. children each day

first_img“Public health research is fundamental for understanding the problem and developing scientifically sound solutions,” said the study’s lead author, Katherine Fowler of the CDC. HealthShootings kill or injure 19 U.S. children each day CHICAGO — Shootings kill or injure at least 19 U.S. children each day, with boys, teenagers and blacks most at risk, according to a government study that paints a bleak portrait of persistent violence.The analysis of 2002-14 U.S. data is billed as the most comprehensive study on the topic. While it mostly confirms previously released information, it underscores why researchers view gun violence as a public health crisis.The report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention involves children and teens through age 17. It was compiled by analyzing death certificates and emergency room reports. Among the findings published Monday in the journal Pediatrics:advertisement Leave this field empty if you’re human: An accompanying editorial in the journal said it’s “both reasonable and wise” for doctors to talk about firearms safety with parents, particularly those who keep guns at home.“It may help to remind ourselves and our parents that our message on safe gun storage in homes with children is similar to that of gun rights and sport shooting groups,” wrote Dr. Eliot Nelson of University of Vermont Children’s Hospital.— Lindsey Tanner Privacy Policy Signs and votive candles stand at a makeshift memorial as it grows at the site of a fatal police shooting of a 17-year-old girl in Denver in 2015.

The yearly toll is nearly 1,300 deaths and almost 6,000 nonfatal gunshot wounds — most of them intentional.Most deaths result from homicides and suicides, while assaults caused most of the nonfatal injuries.The annual death rate is nearly 2 out of 100,000 children — the rate is double for blacks — while nonfatal gunshot wounds injure almost 8 out of 100,000 kids each year.Suicides increased from 2007-14, from 325 to 532. The suicide rate increased 60 percent over those years to 1.6 per 100,000. One-third of these kids were depressed and most had experienced a recent crisis, including relationship breakups and problems at school.Homicides fell from 2007-14, from 1,038 to 699, the rate dropping by 36 percent to less than 1 per 100,000.Most unintentional deaths resulted from playing with guns and unintentionally pulling the trigger. Most victims were bystanders although among kids up to age 10 in this group, more than 40 percent accidentally shot themselves.APThe report notes that unintentional shooting deaths may be significantly underreported, which was highlighted in a report by The Associated Press and USA TODAY Network. The news organizations found during the first six months of 2016, minors died from accidental shootings — at their own hands, or at the hands of other children or adults — at a pace of one every other day, far more than limited federal statistics indicate.Congress has prohibited the CDC from using federal money to advocate or promote gun control. CDC spokeswoman Courtney Lenard said the congressional directive “does not prohibit CDC from conducting public health research into gun violence” and the agency continues to do so.advertisementlast_img read more

Greens call on government to provide emergency payments for casual workers

first_imgGreens call on government to provide emergency payments for casual workers Australian GreensThe Victorian Greens have called on the Andrews Labor Government to provide casual workers with an emergency payment, to ensure they aren’t financially impacted by the upcoming five-day lockdown.The lockdown that was announced today, while necessary, will be particularly difficult for casual workers in the hospitality and retail industries.This weekend was set to be a big one with Chinese New Year, Valentine’s Day, the Australian Open, and other events.Casual workers have already been hit hard by the impacts of COVID-19 and the Greens are urging the government to make a special payment available for casuals who will be missing out on income over the next five days.The government currently provides casual workers with a $450 dollar payment if they miss work while awaiting COVID-19 test results at home.Leader of the Victorian Greens, Samantha Ratnam, said the Greens supported the lockdown on the basis of public health advice and the need to keep Victorians safe.However, she added it was important casual workers weren’t left behind as a result.As stated by Leader of the Victorian Greens, Samantha Ratnam MLC:“It is a difficult day for Victorians heading back into lockdown. The Greens support the five-day lockdown, however, we know some in our community will be hit harder than others.“The Greens are calling on the government to make a special payment available for casual workers who are looking at missing significant income from what was to be a busy weekend.“It is vital that as we continue to respond and manage the COVID pandemic no-one is left behind.” /Public Release.
