Metals industry boosted by teamworking schemeOn 25 Jun 2002 in Personnel Today Workforce skills in the West Midlands metals industry are to receive a boostfollowing the launch of a leadership and team-working initiative. Employers will be given access to subsidised, nationally recognised industrytraining to create flexible, self managed teams. The scheme is being led by Metals Industry Skills and Performance(MetSkill), the national strategic sector body which supports skills anddevelopment needs of industry employers. The metals industry is hoping to develop team leaders and skilled employeesin an industry that accounts for more than 10 per cent of the region’s economy,but is changing rapidly as a sector. Twenty companies have already sent staff on the training programmes whichinclude communication, problem solving, quality management and health andsafety. Stephen Tilsley, chairman of MetSkill, said companies can achieve realimprovements by working together strategically: “Times are tough formetals companies and it is difficult to look beyond the problems facing us.Working more strategically as a sector gives employers the advantage ofbenefiting from a collective industry approach,” he said. www.metskill.co.uk Comments are closed.

Recommended changes to Rule Regulating The Florida Bar 4-4.2 will be discussed at a special meeting during the upcoming General Meeting.And that means any amendments, which were originally planned to go to the Board of Governors at its August 16 meeting, now are tentatively slated for the board’s October meeting.The special meeting was set up after several sections expressed reservations about suggested changes to the rule, which deals with attorneys contacting parties who are represented by counsel.A special board committee has been studying the rule. It originally focused on prosecutors’ concerns that the rule would prevent them from contacting defendants during the course of an investigation, even if it involved something separate from matters they were facing.Prosecutors eventually concluded that the rule shouldn’t be changed because the uncertainties that would create might be worse than dealing with the current rule.But the committee was set to recommend that the rule be changed concerning lawyers who represent parties suing government agencies. Members noted the rule prevents a lawyer from addressing government officials at a public forum and recommended a change.But that caused some sections, including the Environment and Land Use Law Section and the City, County, and Local Government Law Section to express concerns. The special committee decided to hold the gathering at the General Meeting. It is set for 1 to 3 p.m. on Thursday, September 12.For more information, contact Bar Ethics Counsel Elizabeth Tarbert at (850) 561-5780 or at [email protected] Rule 4-4.2 to be discussed in September August 1, 2002 Regular News Rule 4-4.2 to be discussed in September
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will continue to employ caution in his use of midfielder Jack Wilshere. Wenger said: “It made sense to give him a breather because we’re playing every three days at the moment. He is not 100 per cent yet, but he is 90 per cent. “I am a bit cautious because he had a few surgeries. I don’t want to make a mistake on the medical front and overuse him because the ankle is the most important part of a football player. “I would be a bit more cautious (than with another player), until we feel he is completely free from any risk.” Provided Wilshere comes through the Turkish test unscathed, he will also start against Tottenham on Sunday before going on international duty with England, who meet Moldova on Friday, September 6 and Ukraine the following Tuesday. Wenger is aware of Wilshere’s importance to England, whose manager Roy Hodgson announces his squad for the World Cup qualifiers on Tuesday. Smiling, Wenger said: “(The Ukraine fixture is) the key. So don’t play him against Moldova. “It’s World Cup year but first England have to qualify and we now go into a really important period for England. It’s an important year for every single player because they all want to go to the World Cup. “If you have a good season you have a good chance to have a good the World Cup. So let’s first have a good season.” Wilshere, who has overcome a succession of long-standing ankle injuries, dropped to the bench for Saturday’s Barclays Premier League win at Fulham. The midfielder will return to the starting XI for Tuesday night’s Champions League qualifying second leg with Fenerbahce as the Gunners, leading 3-0 from the first match, bid to advance to the group stages. Wenger is bidding to add to his midfield before the September 2 closure of the transfer window. Injuries to Mikel Arteta and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have heightened the need in that department. “We would be a bit more exposed as long as we do not find another player,” Wenger added. “We need a player who is versatile, who can play in different positions in midfield, because at the moment we are a bit short. “It is not just about additions. (It is about) the right additions.” Wenger’s position is under scrutiny from Arsenal fans due to the perceived dithering in the transfer market. Yet the bi-annual recruitment battle has become more of a challenge for Wenger and Arsenal, with the television money in the Premier League increasing the spending power of England’s top clubs. “It is more difficult for two reasons,” he said. “One: I have quality players and, two: the competition for players is absolutely massive in the international market. “When I arrived in England, English clubs did not go on the international market as much as they do now. Before, we were privileged – a bit more lonely out there. Now, everybody knows everybody.” Another feature of the summer transfer window has been bickering between English top-flight managers over signing players, with Arsenal’s pursuit of Liverpool’s Luis Suarez and Newcastle’s Yohan Cabaye criticised by their respective managers. Chelsea’s bid for Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has been played out in public, as has United’s pursuit of Everton duo Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines. “Everybody has a good opinion about what other managers should do, but they do not look at themselves,” Wenger said. “It’s better that you shut up and you don’t say anything.” Press Association

He knows that. He didn’t want to be here. What is the point in having players that don’t want to be here?”Solskjaer says he tried to find a new striker in the summer but simply couldn’t get the right man.He said: “There’s no point getting players in that you’re not 100 per cent sure about.”When you get players in you need the right ones that are going to stay here for a longer period and that’s the long-term thinking we have to show.“I cannot think, ‘I need a player because this is my reputation’.
