..."FM is considered an integral part of the university experience – and this is a view that’s shared by the university board of governors. But what was quite sobering for us was when we decided to map out that student journey, and could see where we actually touch the student experience, and that way we can determine our spheres of influence". - See more at:http://www.fm-world.co.uk
In recognising that their students are customers and providing a hotel-style service aligned to the overall university vision, the facilities management team at Edge Hill University has won the 2013 BIFM ‘In-house client team of the year’ award for their excellent service delivery (excerpt from FM World article)
"Sit and read with meSo.... I thought I'd have a go at making a piece of what could loosely be termed as 'Art', using things I was ready to get rid of, a bit of Upcycling or Repurposing...
and let's walk through
To my Mother and the memory of her Mother
You asked me once
what I would remember.
This, and much more
"There's no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing."Then there's good ol' precipitation, rain that is (other precipitations are available) it's normally bearable, sometimes it can be a blessing in fact, but mix it with another force and bearable it becomes not (Yeh, Ok Yoda!) .... wind
"February 28th 2011 will mark the fourth International Rare Disease Day coordinated by EURORDIS and organised with rare disease national alliances in 25 countries. On that day hundreds of patient organisations from more than 40 countries worldwide will be organising awareness-raising activities and converging around the slogan “Rare but Equal”.
Hundreds of patient groups and their partners, coordinated by national alliances at the country level, are planning a multitude of events to draw attention to rare diseases and the millions of people who are affected by them. Awareness-raising activities are being planned across Europe, all the way to Russia, Georgia and Armenia, as well as in the US, Canada and as far as Australia, New Zealand, China and Japan!"Around the world there are people that suffer from a rare disease, and with rare disease comes a difficulty not normally found with other disease; Don't get me wrong, I understand the difficulties and problems with diseases that are already known, but the main added problem that come with a rare disease is that sufferers often have to fight hard to even understand their problem, let alone getting anyone else to understand what they are going through, these people are often getting very ill, and in many cases are dying.
*I think it's worth mentioning that people are still people, having a disabled child doesn't stop that, but one thing that has come from this break up is that Lyndsay and Andrew still work together for all the children, and they now both have a happy relationship with new partners, who are also involved with the whole family. My hat is off to them both.
heres a test for you...
Which is worse
Rape or Bestiality (sex with an animal)?
(I do not condone either btw)
Now ask Why?
If you said that the animal isn't able to prevent it, or is unaware of the events then you truly don't understand.
Sometimes the act itself doesn't happen, some women have a 'near miss', and many people say that they were "lucky", some would measure events in Sudan or South Africa as a marker, that all women are indeed "lucky" if they don't live in a mass rape area.
At this time my niece has decided not to involve the Police. For all those that can't see why, then face facts, crimes against Women in this country is not really taken seriously enough, and the UK rank very low in the world when it comes to getting charges against rapists (or even less lilkely attempted rapists). Add to that our local constabulary isn't very high in (the already very low) ranking for this type of crime (if they ever invent a yellow box to catch 'em, they'll be on top) . All that aside, these investigations can be horrible for the victim, and no matter what is done to make events better, it is still a difficult and harrowing thing to go through. Add to that; my niece is gay and that she was there with her partner it's likely that this was a mistake by someone who thought events were going to be very different.
