    This news site is run as a news blog by an individual who finances it. This is a non commercial non profitable blog.

    The purpose is a to make local news available for non commercial use.

    It relies on News feeds from Councils, BBC, Police, Local Blogs, Local news.In order to add extra content and services our external links and displays are free.

    As the blog is to promote local news free and is non commercial non profit making network it would not be possible to pay Press Association Commercial licence fees for content because it is not set up to make a financial gain.

    A recent court case agrees commercial users can be charged for content that is resold for profit. However non commercial blogs etc would not be charged.

    However it appears some press associations are getting rather greedy and are chasing private bloggers for fees if they are using some local newspaper feeds.

    They appear to be using a debt collection business called Buchanan Clark & Wells of Glasgow who are sending made up charges for use of copyright material.

    If you are a private blogger having the same problem I would like to hear from you.

    If you are a online newspaper or press association your comments would also be welcome.

  • So we are on way way out of The European Union

    The option to Vote has now driven us out of The Union.

    We now have to take the advantage and not carry on blaming ourselves or others.It was a shock the way it went BUT GET OVER IT.

    The European Union is an organisation that tries to represent Europe.
    It is now nervous that a country has dared to take control of themselves.

    It will not be easy to deal with them because they want us to fail.
    We will not fail and maybe others will split away.That is their biggest fear.

    Northern Ireland now needs to be used as a trade Area to negotiate with Europeans direct.Taking advantage of its doorstep location with Southern Ireland. The UK needs to lower corporation rates to be the same as Ireland.This will be an advantage for all business.

    We need to create a small coordinating and marketing organisation and use CBI and Group Trading organisations to promote Great Britain.The commonwealth needs to be a bigger part of our trade. Our main objective must be to trade globally.
    The social legislation and general laws need to be rewritten and but back into British Law. Maybe a 5 year project.There is going to be lots to sort. In the meantime we can still use Modified European Law and call it that.

  • Turbulent Times Call for Athletic Leaders
    Three fundamental qualities separate the pros from the wannabes

    During the last decade, we studied CEOs of companies that thrive within some of the most challenging business environments on the planet. Though very different in many respects, these CEOs share leadership behaviors and attitudes that strongly parallel those of top athletes. We further theorize that these athletic traits make CEOs uniquely suited to tackle contexts where little can be taken for granted.

  • The Importance of Documenting Enterprise QMS Process Requirements
    Unspoken expectations are the hardest to meet

    You’re in the market to build a new house. Would you tell the builder what you’re looking for, or would you just tell him to build “something?” If the latter, what’s the likelihood that the house you end up with is going to be what you want? Documenting your requirements should be obvious, right?

  • Transitioning to ISO 45001
    The updated safety standard, due out in May, brings ease of use to organizations seeking certification

    Workplace safety is a vital concern for every organization. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2.9 million nonfatal workplace injuries and illnesses were reported by private industry employers in 2016, costing employers tens of billions of dollars.

    In March of this year, the leading certification standard for occupational health and safety—OHSAS 18001—is changing to ISO/FDIS 45001. Organizations will find much commonality among the two programs as well as a few key differences.

  • How Temperature Affects Color Measurements
    From dyes to ceramics to plastics, most materials and colors are vulnerable

    We frequently get calls from customers who can’t figure out why their color measurements vary, even when they’re using maintained devices. Why would a sample read one way one day, then slightly different another? Many times the culprit is thermochromaticity, and it becomes an even bigger problem as the seasons change.

  • Leadership and Positive Social Contagion
    Whether positive or negative, behaviors are contagious

    Are there any positive leadership stories out there anymore? Anyone? Anyone?

    Sometimes, I feel like Ben Stein’s economics teacher in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, casting about for any story that sheds a positive light on the ability to lead with character. Within one week I heard three stories of leadership failure.

  • DNA Has Gone Digital. What Could Possibly Go Wrong?
    DNA samples are available via a global computer network that can be hacked

    Biology is becoming increasingly digitized. Researchers use computers to analyze DNA, operate lab equipment and store genetic information. But new capabilities also mean new risks, and biologists remain largely unaware of the potential vulnerabilities that come with digitizing biotechnology.

    The emerging field of cyberbiosecurity explores the whole new category of risks that come with the increased use of computers in the life sciences.

  • China’s great firewall is rising

    BEFORE he was jailed, few people had heard of Wu Xiangyang. But when news of his conviction appeared in a state newspaper in late December, internet users across China took note. A small trader from the southern province of Guangxi, Mr Wu’s crime was to sell cheap and commonly used software that enables people to circumvent China’s draconian internet controls. His five-and-a-half-year prison sentence is the toughest-known penalty imposed for such “illegal business”.

    Motivated Chinese have long found it fairly easy to acquire such software, which provides access to what is known as a virtual private network (VPN). Through this kind of connection, a user in China can reach the thousands of websites that are blacklisted by the government—including almost all Google services, many news sites and most foreign social networks. Many people use VPNs several times each day to jump the country’s “great firewall”, as its system of online censorship is often called in English (Chinese netizens...Continue reading

  • For the natural world, China’s rise may not be so worrisome

    Though they’re disapprovin’

    UNTIL the end of 2017, carved elephant tusks were still sold legally in China. International trade in ivory had been banned by the government since 1990, but not domestic transactions. At a shop in a glitzy mall in Beijing, the manager showed off his prize exhibit: a carving the size of a football of 30 ivory spheres, one inside the other, each moving separately and intricately carved. It was an example of an ancient craftsmanship, and one that has no future. On January 1st China banned ivory sales. The last ivory-carving factories and shops (including the one in Beijing) closed.

    Environmentalists have long fretted about the impact that a rising China will have on the natural world. They worry not only about carbon emissions but also that, one day, the last tiger will be killed so its penis can be turned into an ineffective aphrodisiac or the last elephant slaughtered so its tusks can be carved into a gift. Yet as China has grown richer, it...Continue reading

  • Kenya on the road to justice?
    For most of us (unless you're David Cameron, Nick Clegg or Gordon Brown), the last UK general election was nothing short of a soap-operatic, emotion-fuelled dramatic spectacle. Never before had I overheard so many people on the number 149 bus in north London chattering about a Hung Parliament. Yes, we may have been in the midst of some sort of constitutional crisis at that point, but we knew th

    In recent weeks, detention of journalists has increased to an alarming scale. Customaririly, the Islamic regime would open up the atmosphere, leaving windows open for poeple to express themselves creating a false image of freedom of expression in order to attract more voters to the ballot boxes. Shortly after every election these windows would shut down and suppression and censorship would roam
  • USA: Children, Life Without Parole, and the Case of Christi Cheramie
    In the USA children can be sentenced to life without parole, despite an almost universal legal and moral consensus that this sentence should never be imposed on someone under the age of 18 at the time the crime was committed. The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (which has been ratified by all states except the USA and Somalia) provides in Article 37 that: ‘States Pa

    It's been quite a year for navel gazing in the British press. Leveson is on the rolling news, on the morning news, the evening news, the front page, pages 2- 36 and all over the comment section. This is news-news, hacks on hacks, editors on editors, the judgement of the judgemental. It's been an interesting year to be in the media. The invisible scribes have learnt that they are mortal, fa
  • “Spreading corruption on earth” can only mean one thing in Iran….
    Can a judge really say with a straight face that a person has been charged with ‘spreading corruption on earth'? I mean, really? Apparently so, it would seem. In Iran at least. And anyone in Iran who is unfortunate enough to have this heavy charge levelled against him finds himself faced with a death sentence in Iran. Such is the case for Saeed Malekpour. Amnesty has campaigned fo

  • 'It's all about the use of torture ...'
    … as zingy catchphrases go, it's … er, different. But this is how Kate Allen opened her Channel 4 News interview last night talking about the Abu Qatada case (which I blogged on yesterday). The controversy over the presence in the UK of Abu Qatada is, in the end, an argument about how seriously you take the international ban on torture (including a ban on sending people somewhere where the
