first_img Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos. Consultation delay could hit staffOn 18 Apr 2000 in Personnel Today The Government’s failure to consult adequately on new legislation is likelyto end up disadvantaging the groups it claims to be protecting.In the latest issue of Personnel Today’s sister title Employers’ Law, HRprofessionals claim ministers’ attitude could lead to legislation beingimplemented at a minimum level and in a spirit of cynicism. The comments addextra weight to Personnel Today’s campaign for better consultation. Mike Emmott, employee relations adviser at the Institute for Personnel andDevelopment, said, “The risk is that if Government gives the impression itis only concerned with the politics and not with how employers implement newlaws, employers will become cynical about them. This will not help theemployees.” Helen Froud, director of corporate services at Worcestershire CountyCouncil, said, “How were we supposed to help staff take the new parentalleave when the regulations were only published two weeks beforeimplementation?”And Susan Richmond, HR manager of WH Smith Retail, said the lack ofconsultation resulted in many employers only being able to implement at aminimum level given the time constraints. last_img read more

Syracuse drops regular-season finale, 5-2, at St. Joseph’s

first_imgNo. 14 Syracuse (8-7, 1-5 Atlantic Coast) ended its regular season with a 5-2 loss against No. 12 St. Joseph’s (16-2, 8-0 Atlantic 10) Saturday in Philadelphia. The Orange entered the game having lost two straight and looked to find their winning form again headed into the ACC tournament. Despite their worst conference regular season record since joining the ACC in 2013, the Orange came into Saturday 8-1 in non-conference games. After six minutes, SU had its dream start. Kira Wimbert didn’t start the game for SU, but within 30 seconds of coming on, she gave the Orange the lead in the sixth minute. An SJU green card gave the Orange a man advantage, and Wimbert slotted home the opening goal. Syracuse’s lead turned into a deficit in less than one minute. Senior back Roos Weers said on Wednesday it was important for the Orange to “stay focused.” Saturday, St. Joe’s’ scored twice in 56 seconds. First, Anna Wilocks fired a shot past SU goalie Borg van der Velde. Then, SJU pressed the Orange into another turnover, and Emily Henry gave the Hawks the lead.The wide open play continued throughout the half, when Syracuse earned a penalty corner.  SJU committed a foul off the corner right in front of the goal, giving Weers a penalty stroke. She converted to tie the match at two with seven minutes to go in the opening half.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse’s penalty corner defense remained stout on SJU’s first four corners, but the Orange couldn’t keep the fifth attempt out.  SJU recaptured the lead eight minutes into the second half on a Tonya Botherway goal. Van der Velde then fouled a St. Joe’s attacker in the penalty circle, directly in front of goal, giving SJU a penalty stroke of its own. Wilocks added her second goal of the afternoon from the penalty spot. The Orange continued to press higher and higher to get back into the game, and Botherway broke through on goal off a counterattack. All alone with Van der Velde, she added her second goal of the afternoon, to cap off a dominant SJU second half where the Hawks outscored SU 3-0 and outshot the Orange 10-2. Five goals is tied for the most the Orange have allowed all season. SU also conceded five goals against No. 1 North Carolina on Sept. 29. Syracuse enters the ACC tournament as the No. 7 seed and will take on No. 2 Duke in the quarterfinals on Thursday in Chapel Hill, N.C. Last time the two teams met, Syracuse failed to register a shot in a 1-0 loss.

Dodgers fan who caught Turner HR ball snags Wrigley shot

first_imgHupp said the Turner catch was easy. He scrambled toward a railing in the center-field stands and, with no one near him, leaned over to make the snag. The three-run drive in the bottom of the ninth inning gave the Dodgers a 4-1 win in Game 2, and Hupp presented the ball to Turner that night.The grab became an instant highlight and made Hupp an internet sensation. The play he made to get the Baez ball in Game 4, that was more painful.Hupp was close to the top row of the left-field seats — above the noted ballhawks patrolling Waveland Avenue — when Baez connected in the second inning. The ball hit a back railing and caromed into a swarm of fans, beneath a TV camera stand.“Everyone was about half my age, but I pounced. I’ll pounce if there are no kids around,” he said.“I grabbed the ball and tried to tuck it in, like a football,” he said. “I got piled on pretty good, I could feel a couple guys trying to rip it out of my glove. It felt like I got a cracked rib.”Hupp planned to be at Game 5 Thursday night with Los Angeles holding a 3-1 lead. One more Dodgers win and he’d get a chance at the ultimate prize.“I only started doing this stuff a few years ago, after I retired,” he said. “But I do know that catching a home run ball at the World Series, that would be the holy grail.” “I’m still kind of a newbie at this ballhawking stuff,” the retired policeman told The Associated Press in a phone interview from Chicago. “The only thing that’s lightning strike-ish about this is that it’s two in four days.”Hupp is 54, from Southern California and has rooted for the Dodgers forever. A season ticket-holder, he always sits in the outfield and has gotten 11 home-run balls this year.But a pair of playoff goodies — hard to imagine anyone is having a better postseason than him.Fan-tastic!Related Articles Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error By BEN WALKERHe’s become Mr. Hawk-tober.Remember that fan who made the great catch on Justin Turner’s game-ending home run at Dodger Stadium over the weekend?
