He was subsequently arrested and taken into custody for taking part in a peaceful demonstration in favour of greater religious tolerance. No charges were brought against him. His detention was extended twice but the investigation into his involvement in the protest produced no conclusion.

A Massachusetts City Decides to Recognize Polyamorous Relationships

first_imgThe New York Times 2 July 2020Family First Comment: As we predicted.If gender doesn’t matter, why should number?“Mr. Scott, the councilman, said he had been inundated by calls and messages all day, including from lawyers interested in pursuing a similar measure at the state or federal level.”#ProtectMarriage#MarriageOneManOneWomanThe city of Somerville has broadened the definition of domestic partnership to include relationships between three or more adults, expanding access to health care.At the tail end of a City Council meeting last week, so quickly and quietly that you could have easily missed it, a left-leaning Massachusetts city expanded its notion of family to include people who are polyamorous, or maintaining consenting relationships with multiple partners.Under its new domestic partnership ordinance, the city of Somerville now grants polyamorous groups the rights held by spouses in marriage, such as the right to confer health insurance benefits or make hospital visits.J.T. Scott, a city councilor who supported the move, said he believed it was the first such municipal ordinance in the country.“People have been living in families that include more than two adults forever,” Mr. Scott said. “Here in Somerville, families sometimes look like one man and one woman, but sometimes it looks like two people everyone on the block thinks are sisters because they’ve lived together forever, or sometimes it’s an aunt and an uncle, or an aunt and two uncles, raising two kids.”He said he knew of at least two dozen polyamorous households in Somerville, which has a population of about 80,000.“This is simply allowing that change, allowing people to say, ‘This is my partner and this is my other partner,’” he said. “It has a legal bearing, so when one of them is sick, they can both go to the hospital.”READ MORE: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/07/01/us/somerville-polyamorous-domestic-partnership.htmllast_img read more

Activity Metrics for Adults

first_imgOutcomes are better than activity. If you could have the outcome without having to do the work, that would be the right thing to do. You could reserve your time, energy, and resources for something else, having already achieved the outcome.One law of this Universe is the law of cause and effect. Without a cause, there is no effect. So you know that you cannot obtain the outcome you need (the effect) without the cause (the activity).Why then would you ever expect that you could obtain your goals without the requisite activity?Two Different ApproachesThere are many salespeople who don’t like to track their activity, nor do they like to report it. Mostly, this is because their activity is abysmal. The lack of activity is embarrassing, and so they think of activity management as micromanagement.Many sales managers fear asking adult, professional salespeople about their activity, to both of their detriments. Poor activity leads to poor results. As a sales manager, you fail your people when you don’t hold them accountable for results. And when your salespeople don’t produce results, you fail them when you don’t improve their activity, both the quality and the quantity.When you produce micro results due to a lack of activity, you can expect to have someone ask you about your activity. You may call is micromanagement, but it wouldn’t be necessary if you managed your own activity.The Second ChoiceThere are some salespeople who generate a lot of activity. Almost without fail, they also generate better results than their half-measure-taking peers. These salespeople never mind telling you about their activity. They’re proud of what they do from day-to-day.People who take action without having to be asked are rarely asked to report on their activity. There is no need to police people who act independently; they’re policing themselves. Because they work, they produce results. Because they produce results, no one worries about what they’re doing, as their results speak for themselves.If you can’t, don’t, or won’t manage your own activity, you are always going to have someone manage you. If you manage your own activity, doing more than anyone else would ever expect of you, you will never need to someone to manage you.The level of success you reach is directly proportional to your ability to exercise personal leadership.last_img read more

TOUCH FOOTBALL AUSTRALIA OPERATIONAL STAFF WORKSHOP A SUCCESS

first_imgTouch Football Australia’s Sport Development Unit has been hosting a staff workshop for operational staff from Sunday 23 September to Tuesday 25 September 2007 in Coffs Harbour.The core of Operational staff were already in Coffs Harbour working at the 2007 X Blades National 18 Years and Under Championships, and the timing of the workshop fitted well from a logistical and cost effective perspective.The conference has brought together 17 TFA staff from all over the nation to increase knowledge and share their experiences in the delivery of the sport.The Operational Workshop has replaced the National Development Officer Conference.TFA National Participation Manager Marianne Maguire, who was a driving force behind the revamped workshop, is excited about the outcomes the conference will achieve.“We really needed something to help develop the knowledge and share the collective ideas of our operational staff who are decision makers as well as key delivery personnel  – people such as Operational Managers, and Sport Development staff who need to continually be challenged and educated to ensure we deliver the sport to its full potential,” Mrs. Maguire said. Topics for presentation have include: Overview of TFA and discussion of roles for staff, Marketing and Branding, Product Knowledge and Professional Development, National Operations Units updates, Trends of the Game, Legal Issues for Affiliates, Finance, Information Technology, and the ASET Program. “Facts Sheet” will be completed by staff members on each of the presented topics to assist with the formation of Operational Manuals for existing and new staff. Touch Football Australia Board of Management Chairman, Mr. Peter Rooney, and Touch Football Australia Chief Executive Officer Colm Maguire were on hand to address the staff and present direction and perspective on the Strategic and Operational endeavours of the sport.“The workshop is another opportunity for us to review, identify, consolidate, and focus on the coordination of our strategic and operational practices. It also provides a fantastic environment for crucial professional development of our staff who are striving to deliver the sport in the best way possible for our affiliated members,” Mr. Maguire said.Guest presenters included Britt Homewood from TFA’s major sponsor Kos Sports X Blades, Michael Broadbent from TFA’s official photographer Michael Broadbent, and various Sport Development Unit staff who gave insights into crucial interest areas that affect the delivery of the sport. The TFA Operational staff, whilst weary from their endeavours in running the X Blades National 18 Years and Under Championships, embraced the Workshop concept enthusiastically.Western Australia’s Operations Manager Angela Doyle believes the workshop offered the chance for understanding and accord across the TFA organisation, and to share ideas with other staff that make valuable contributions to the knowledge well for all.“The key is communication, it is imperative for success, creating links within the organisation, and strengthening us as a unit to deliver like outcomes for the sport,” Ms. Doyle said.The conference will wind up today with all staff heading back to their respective States to build on the knowledge gleaned from the workshop.last_img read more
