Les démocrates (à 55 %) et les républicains (à 59 %) sont statistiquement tout aussi susceptibles de dire que les élections sont une source très ou relativement importante de stress.L’angoisse va au-delà de qui va gagner ou perdre.« Je pense qu’il y a beaucoup d’anxiété du fait du manque de civilité et de la division » qui entourent ces élections, a déclaré Brian Baker, doyen de la cathédrale épiscopale de la Trinité de Sacramento (État de Californie), au cours d’une interview récente avec Episcopal News Service (ENS). « Tous ces jugements, cette polarisation, la stigmatisation des gens en groupes, les campagnes de peur – tout cela ronge l’âme de nos communautés ».Brian Baker pense que cette période électorale est l’occasion pour l’église de se montrer d’une manière différente, d’incarner ce qu’il appelle « la distinction nette » entre la culture de l’église et celle du monde. Par exemple, poursuit-il, élever des enfants dans une communauté paroissiale « devient moins facultatif… si vous voulez que votre enfant fasse partie d’une communauté qui parle vraiment du respect de la dignité de chaque être humain ».À mesure de l’intensification du climat politique, certaines congrégations ont organisé des rassemblements pour que leurs membres parlent de leurs préoccupations et discernent comment répondre dans la foi à cette période électorale. Certaines ont organisé l’inscription sur les listes électorales et d’autres prévoient des vigiles de prière la veille des élections et le jour des élections.« Tous les épiscopaliens qui soulèvent ce point maintenant voient tout à fait juste », déclare à ENS l’Honorable Byron Rushing, chef adjoint de la majorité à la Chambre des représentants du Massachusetts et également vice-président de la Chambre des députés de l’Église épiscopale, ajoutant que cette préoccupation lui parait sans précédent.La révérende Emily Mellott, recteure de Calvary Church à Lombard (État de l’Illinois), a organisé un débat de ce genre mi-octobre.« Ce dont nous avons parlé était principalement de la manière de nous placer sur le terrain de notre foi lorsque le discours public est si divisé et parait si éloigné de nos valeurs et de notre foi », explique-t-elle à ENS. « Nous avons parlé de la lecture de psaumes et des prophètes pour nous relier à d’autres époques où le peuple de Dieu se sentait perdu dans le chaos – c’est un modèle pour rester en contact avec Dieu lorsqu’il nous semble que Dieu est loin de ce chaos ».Les participants ont également parlé de la recherche des valeurs de l’engagement baptismal dans les informations et les débats électoraux, des valeurs telles que le respect et la justice, et ce qu’Emily Mellott appelle « des valeurs connexes comme l’intégrité, la patience, l’humilité ».« Puis une personne nous a rappelés que – comme antidote à la crainte de savoir si notre démocratie va survivre – la mission de l’église continuera quel que soit le candidat vainqueur », poursuit Emily Mellott. « Elle a suggéré que la confiance dans cette idée l’aide à traiter les craintes de cette période électorale comme une distraction et non pas comme une question essentielle, et nous permet de nous concentrer sur ce qui est important dans notre foi ».L’objectif de ces conversations, dit à ENS Mariann Budde, évêque du Diocèse de Washington, devrait être de « trouver un moyen pour que chaque voix soit entendue, pour permettre aux gens d’exprimer leur propre vérité puis de permettre à la communauté de progresser d’une manière qui fasse partie de la réconciliation dont nous avons besoin », au-delà de la communauté paroissiale.« L’angoisse et l’anxiété » avant et après l’élection, explique Brian Rushing, donne à l’église « une occasion supplémentaire de parler de notre approche de la réconciliation ».Article complet en anglais.

Indiana Pork staff will have updates but Jeanette Merritt stresses producer input is important.“The regional meetings give us an opportunity to go out to our pork producers around the state and hear from them, to see what issues are directly affecting them and see if there are things we can take back to our office to get help,” she told HAT. “They also give us the opportunity to update our producers on how checkoff dollars are being spent and inform them of some of the issues going on in the Indiana state legislature and also on behalf of the National Pork Board as well.”Merritt, Director of Checkoff Programs for Indiana Pork, and Ben Wicker will conduct the lunch meetings. Wicker is the director of the producer information programs.“Ben is great,” she said. “He really is the one who is out doing farm business, working with our producers and helping them as they are looking at permitting barns around the state and dealing with county councils and zoning issues. Ben is a wealth of information and he can provide all of those types of updates but then also give them the legislative overview.”Lunch is included and walk-ins are welcome at the meetings.

Foundations for success?

first_img Previous Article Next Article Foundations for success?On 1 Oct 2001 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. The Foundation Degrees scheme launched this summer sounds like the idealbridge between academia and work. But will employers benefit? Simon KentreportsAt the end of September 4,000 places became available for new FoundationCourses, a work-based, degree-level qualification. With a choice of 69 courses,70 per cent of which are to be delivered part time, it is the latest initiativein the Government’s campaign to give 50 per cent of all young people the chanceto benefit from higher education by the age of 30. While still in theirinfancy, there appears to be enthusiasm for this new approach from employersinvolved in their creation. But what will Foundation Degrees really bring tothe job market and will the early enthusiasm be justified in the long run? Sue Ogden Training development officer, KLM UK EngineeringThe Foundation Degree will help maintenance organisations and airlines findthe well-qualified, skilled people to fill skills shortages or develop theirexisting staff for more challenging and responsible roles. The status of aircraft engineers will be raised significantly and will givestudents a wider range of options to help them fulfil their career potential. Margaret Hodge Lifelong Learning and Higher Education MinisterTackling skills shortages in key industry sectors is essential to supportthe future growth of UK businesses. Many top companies are crying out forpeople with the right skills and foundation degrees are a great way to deliverthe opportunities for individuals and appropriate skills for employers. Graduates with a Foundation Degree will have what employers want – athorough academic grounding coupled with practical job skills. And becausethese courses are vocational, they are attractive to people who are uncertainabout higher education and want certainty that it will provide a passport to ajob. Mike Cannell Adviser for training and development, CIPDFor the past 15 years or so, this country has suffered in comparison withcountries like Germany or France, from a shortage of intermediate skills. Wehave a high proportion of young people with degrees and a high proportion withno qualifications at all. There has been a lack of good technicians and so it’sclearly a good idea to fill that gap. Having said that, past experience makes me sceptical about these newqualifications. I go along with the principal that intermediate skills needboosting to get our competitiveness up, but the real test will come in two orthree years’ time when we can see what is being provided in this area. David Allan Group human resources director, Huntsman’s Tioxide and PetrochemicalsThis initiative is a good example of excellent collaboration of chemicalindustry representatives, the academic world and the Government’s furthereducation department officials. The scheme has two major key benefits – it will provide another positiveroute into the chemical industry for young people and, as jobs in our industrycontinue to become more and more technically demanding, this course will be avery useful vehicle for up-skilling our existing people and helping them togain a much deeper academic and theoretical background to add to theirpractical experience. Elizabeth Clark HR manager and executive board member, EEF, LancashireThese qualifications fill an important gap in the education system. At themoment, if an individual does not attain certain qualifications by a certaintime, they can leave without fulfilling their potential. These degrees offer agood way for capable workers to achieve a higher academic level. Doing a degreerequires a different mindset and it can be difficult for those who are used toworking on a practical application to make the transition. The degrees will be important to the nation as a whole to gain a competitiveedge through the innovation of our people against the lure of cheaper labourcosts of developing nations. We need to improve our academic skills andencourage R&D to maintain and grow our position in global markets. Gavin Dykes Head of business, management and IT, NescotIn our Sports Therapy Foundation Degree, successful students will gainrecognition from the Association of Sports Therapists, and therefore to movequickly to professional practice. In the E-commerce Technologies Foundation Degree, students will be assistedin their learning through using Cisco and Microsoft materials. They will be ina position to add value to their degree by taking professional computingqualifications. Work experience is built into the courses, and for those keen to developtheir studies further, progression routes to full honours degrees have beenidentified. The result of the partnership between industry and education is new,exciting and relevant qualifications that provide benefits all round. Linda booth HR director, Your CommunicationsYour Communications has become involved in delivering the telecomsspecialism of a technology foundation degree at Blackburn College. We aren’tyet expecting all our people to do a foundation degree, but we don’t run anyapprenticeship schemes and a Foundation Degree could be a good way of bridgingthat gap. The course at Blackburn College is very flexible. Students can move on to itfrom an HNC, and it’s a modular programme so they can do it full or part time. We normally employ graduates, but Foundation Degrees will enable students tocompete for one of our graduate traineeships. Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more
