The Oxford Handbook of Corporate Social Responsibility (Oxford Handbooks in Business and Management) [amzn_product_post]Business schools, the media, the corporate sector, governments, and non-governmental organizations have all begun to pay more attention to issues of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in recent years. These issues encompass broad questions about the changing relationship between business, society and government, environmental issues, corporate governance, the social and ethical dimensions of management, globalization, stakeholder debates, shareholder and consumer activism, changing political systems and values, and the ways in which corporations can respond to new social imperatives. This Oxford Handbook is an authoritative review of the academic research that has both prompted, and responded to, these issues. Bringing together leading experts in the area, it provides clear thinking and new perspectives on CSR and the debates around it.

DUI Saturation Enforcement Program

first_imgPublic Safety DUI Saturation Enforcement Program Published on Thursday, January 15, 2015 | 1:35 pm Officers from the Pasadena Police Department’s DUI Enforcement Team will be deploying to stop and arrest alcohol and drug-impaired drivers in the Department’s ongoing traffic safety campaign. DUI Saturation Patrols will deploy on Friday, January 23, 2015, between the hours of 7:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m. in areas with high frequencies of DUI collisions and/or arrests.Over the course of the past three years, DUI collisions have claimed 5 lives and resulted in 80 injury crashes harming 117 of our friends and neighbors in Pasadena.In California, this deadly crime led to 774 deaths because someone failed to designate a sober driver. Alcohol and drug-impaired deaths still make up the largest category of overall vehicle fatalities with 29 percent of all deaths caused by a drunk driver. A DUI Saturation Patrol is a proven effective method to lower these numbers. When possible, specially trained officers will be available to evaluate those suspected of drug-impaired driving.Pasadena PD reminds everyone that they can assist in preventing this crime from ever occurring. If you are planning a gathering or celebration with alcohol included, or if you are out on the town, plan ahead and designate a non-drinking sober driver. A DUI and drug-impaired arrest can cost up to $10,000 or even more, including time in jail, the loss of your driver license and high insurance rates.These enforcement efforts are funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Spring bulbs

first_imgSpring flowering bulbs, such as tulips, daffodils, hyacinths and crocuses, add lots of color and visual enjoyment to early spring flower beds. These bulbs are among the first flowers to appear in spring and signal that cold weather is on the way out and warmer days are just around the corner. In Georgia, spring-flowering bulbs can be planted from October through late December. If you cannot plant bulbs right away, store them at around 60-65 degrees Fahrenheit in a dry area. Temperatures above 70 degrees Fahrenheit may damage the flower buds. Use high quality bulbsBefore breaking the soil, first select high quality bulbs. Choose only bulbs that are firm, not soft, and are medium/large sized. There is great difference in size between bulb types. For example, tulip bulbs are much larger than crocus bulbs. But a large tulip bulb is generally healthier than a small tulip bulb. Again, bulbs should be firm and have unblemished skin. If you order by mail or Internet, you can’t physically inspect the bulbs before you buy them. Ordering from a reputable company will help ensure you receive a quality product. Bulbs should be kept in a cool, dry, dark place until planting. Be wary of bulbs stored for long periods of time in less desirable conditions. Find a good spot to store them between purchasing and planting if you can’t plant them right away.Most bulbs aren’t picky about their soilA soil pH of 6.0 to 6.8 is best for most bulbs. Incorporate lime if a soil test indicates a need for it. In the absence of a soil test, add 1 to 2 pounds of 5-10-10, 10-10-10 or 8-8-8 fertilizer per 100 square feet of bed space. Incorporate lime, fertilizer and any soil amendments thoroughly and deeply, at least 12 inches. Do not attempt to work the soil when it is too wet. The majority of bulbous plants are actually less particular about soil than many other cultivated plants. Most prefer a moist, well-drained, medium, sandy loam that does not remain wet and sticky after heavy rain or dry out too quickly. Good drainage is essential. Mix types and leave dry foliageMix the spring-flowering bulbs in beds with late emerging perennials such as daylilies or cannas. After the bulbs finish flowering and the foliage begins to die back, they will be replaced by the perennials. It is actually important to leave the dying foliage on spring bulbs. It helps fertilize the bulb for the following year. The neighboring perennials will also help disguise the dying leaves with something more attractive.Planting depth and spacing are also very important for the success of bulbs. A general rule of thumb for planting depth (from the top of the bulb to the soil surface) is two to three times the greatest diameter for bulbs 2 inches or more in diameter, and three to four times the greatest diameter for smaller bulbs.Spacing will vary from 1 or 2 inches to as much as several feet. When spacing bulbs, consider not only how much space each plant needs, but also how frequently it will be dug up and divided. Also consider the landscape effect. The flower display is most effective when bulbs are planted in large clusters in confined areas rather than in evenly spaced lines or sparse plantings throughout a large area.Plant bulbs upright and press the soil firmly around them. Rhizomes and tuberous roots are usually planted on their sides. Water the beds thoroughly to help settle the soil.Bulbs should be planted within the next couple of months to ensure a burst of color in the spring. A little work now will pay off with a colorful display of flowers.last_img read more

SBC’s On The Ball – The leaks that rocked football

first_img Top 50 clubs suffer €751m decline in brand value July 31, 2020 StumbleUpon Share From sponsorship to the ever-expanding world of football media coverage, when it comes to the business of football, SBC has you covered. This edition picks out some of the key stories from the leaks by German magazine Der Spiegel. Leaks, leagues and deceit The leaks of German magazine Der Spiegel sent shock waves through world football, unearthing information that could thrust the financial integrity of football clubs back into the forefront of the media attention. The information was most damning about French champions PSG, as well as Premier League holders Manchester City, however what’s most surprising is not the club’s alleged eagerness to disregard the financial fair play guidelines, but the reported willingness of FIFA President Gianni Infantino to accommodate the breaching of the rules. The reports claimed that the Manchester club were cooking the books when it came to sponsorships, with £59.5m of the £67.5m worth of income from its Etihad partnership being essentially financed by the club’s owner Sheik Mansour. The leaks also detailed that both PSG and Manchester City posted losses in excess of £150m and breached financial fair play rules, however Infantino aided the two clubs when it come to avoiding severe footballing sanctions. In an email allegedly written by Infantino to City’s chairman, Khaldoon al-Mubarak, Infantino, who at the time was Uefa’s general secretary outlined a possible settlement by stating: “You will see that I’ve sometimes chosen a wording which ‘looks’ more ‘strong.’”Further concerning news for football fans coming from the leaks was in regards to potential plans for a European breakaway league, spearheaded by Real Madrid, AC Milan, Arsenal, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Juventus and Manchester United the report claimed the league was in the works for as early as 2021.It is believed that the league would be made up of 11 founding members, who would be the teams listed above, as well as Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City and Paris St-Germain, these sides would all avoid relegation from the league. Additionally, it was reported that five initial guests could be invited into the league, these would be Atletico Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Inter Milan, Marseille and Roma.Bayern Munich responded to the claims, stating the club was “unaware of recent plans for a so-called Super League” and denied “taking part in negotiations relating to such plans”.The club’s chairman continued: “FC Bayern Munich stands by its membership of the Bundesliga and, as long as I am chairman of the board of FC Bayern, also by the club competitions organised jointly by Uefa and the ECA (European Club Association).”VAR in the Premier League The Premier League has joined the Uefa Champions League and has voted to introduce Video Assistant Referees from next season.The Premier League issued the following update: “Non-live testing programme will remain in place for the rest of this season, with a continued emphasis on those Saturday afternoons which have several matches being played concurrently and developing a clear protocol for communicating VAR decisions to fans.”Former Premier League referee Mark Halsey, commented on BBC Radio 5 live’s Afternoon Edition: “I think it is a good thing. I know a lot of people are against it but we’ve got to embrace it now and move forward.“We’ve seen this season a number of incidences that have been called wrong, especially this weekend when there were a number of goals ruled out when they shouldn’t have been.“I think as long as we get the training and education right, and we get the right personnel, that’s the most important thing for me.“The referees will still want to go out and get the key match decisions right, it’s very important that referees are not hiding behind the VAR – they’ve still going to be making these big calls correctly.” David Lampitt, Sportradar: F1 presents betting’s most sizeable opportunity August 14, 2020 Related Articles Submit Share Paddy Power: Maintaining brand identity with daring marketing campaigns July 27, 2020last_img read more
