Working years in late night hospitality, Ive become tired of the late night kebab being my main source of energy.
The thousands of us that work during the part of the day/night that everyone else spends either sleeping or partying have been left with very little option for food after work. Kebab's and McDonalds just don't cut it anymore.
We want late night KFC!!
The Sweetwater Union High School District has approved for cuts operating budget to cope with the state’s relentless fiscal crisis, and will be laying off bus drivers.
San Ysidro High school currently uses the most buses in the district because of its location and the fact that no sidewalks are provided.
San Ysidro High school currently operates a block schedule Monday to Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and 8:00 a.m. depending on the student's and teacher's class schedule.
By implementing a later time frame than the 2011 - 2012 schedule, it will negatively affect San Ysidro High School.
It will negatively affect the people of San Ysidro High School.
It negatively affect those associated to San Ysidro High School.
There will be no After school Programs due to the late end times.
Athletes and those whom are associated in competitive teams and/or clubs will miss more class time, and will result in lower test scores, a lower GPA, and will affect the chances of a student from graduating and entering a College or University of their dreams.
It is immoral how San Ysidro High School the only school in the district to have a starting time from ( 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m ), and promptly have to start even later time with an all class schedule.
The University of Birmingham are proposing to change the terms and conditions of all support staff by cutting the pay of support staff for working bank holidays, closed days and weekends and making them compulsory for many. New administrative staff have been placed on a 'any 5 day in 7' contract.
UNISON believes that these changes undermine staff's work life balance, health and well being and that these are important to both staff and the student experience
This is our present city ordinance.
It shall be unlawful for a convenience store, service station or other type of retail establishment holding a permit authorizing the sale of beer and light wine for off-premises consumption to:
(1) To sell beer or light wine to any person between the hours of 2:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m. on Monday through Saturday, and between the hours of 2:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. on Sunday.
(2) To permit consumption of beer or light wine on the premises of the store or retail establishment.
(3) To sell, give or furnish beer or light wine to any person visibly intoxicated or to any insane person, or to any habitual drunkard, or to any person under the age of twenty (21) years.
(4) To permit on the premises any lewd, immoral, or improper entertainment, or conduct or practices.
(5) To permit or suffer gambling or the operation of games of chance upon the licensed premises unless otherwise allowed by the Mississippi Gaming Act.
(6) To receive, possess or sell on the premises any beverage of any kind or character containing more than five (5) percent alcohol by weight.
(7) To display or sell beer or light wine from an ice tub or similar container, other than a mechanical refrigeration unit.
This is our present city ordinance. There are some people in our community that would like to change the ordinance due to the fact they say we are losing much needed sales tax revenue to the county and Louisiana, where beer and light wine can be purchased all day, every day.
Changing club hours would be beneficial for the youth of the LeoGoodwin Foundation Teen Center. at this moment the club is open at 3pm on schools days , but on Non-school days its open from 9am to 5pm. The teens that attend this center start arriving btween 11am to Noon. As we all know most teenagers don't wakeup early in the morning.
This brings the benefit of having the club Hours changed to either 11am to 8:30pm or 11:30 to 9pm, the teens would be able to spend more quality time at the club and interact with more activities during the summer and on non-school days.
Sometimes over the weekend, people tend to sleep in because it is their day off or they had a big night out or they just feel like it. But there's nothing worse than waking up on the weekend wanting a breakfast meal from McDonald's and rocking up just as the breakfast menu changes over.
As most of you are aware, there was an incident back in June of 2009 where Sophie bit an elderly lady walking down the street in front of my house. Sophie was 14 months old, and UTD on vaccinations when this occurred. The lady that was bitten is not pressing charges and this is the first and only time that anything like this has ever happened.
The Dog Constable came to my house the following day and put Sophie in a very small cage, attached to the back of a car and drove away with her. While he was in my yard, I asked what the next steps were, and he informed me, (only after minutes of seeing her), since your dog has bitten someone, she will more than likely be euthanized. He did a 48 hour assessment on her (beginning the assessment only after 2 hours of taking her from my care, and travelling in a cage attached to the back of a car), and put in his report to the town. His conclusion was that she had fear aggression and that she was fearful of her surroundings, and that there is no way to tell how she will react if something scares her. The only option to protect the town was for her to be euthanized. They kept her for 12 days. I was not allowed to see her, and the town would not return her to me. As soon as I got a lawyer, things changed and I had her back home the following day.
For the last 7 months I have done everything in my power to assure the town that something like this will never happen again. I have put in a fence surrounding my yard, we complete weekly training sessions with renounced Animal Behaviorist, Andrew Turner, Sophie is being socialized on a regular basis, and is undergoing desensitizing for the things that she is fearful of. Sophie has made huge improvements and continuously strives to be a balanced dog. Just last week when I took Sophie for a walk, and there were 3 people and 3 dogs that we encountered on the walk, and she walked right by them. She is making improvements every day, and for someone to say, after doing a 48 hours assessment, that she is not trainable, “wired incorrectly” and the only option is euthanasia should not be in the position that he is in. How many other dogs have been put down because of his “authority”?
Because of this bogus report, by an unqualified individual there is a court date set for Feb. 16, 2010 at 1:00PM to decide the fate of Sophie. I am asking from the bottom of my heart that all of my friends please attend the hearing as support for Sophie.
It is socially unfair that compared to most schools in NSW, students of Trinity Grammar School Summer Hill are expected to finish at 3:40pm on most school days only to be committed to sports and co curricular on other days that not only consume leisure and study time but also acts upon as a nuisance for transportation due to extended hours.
The forty minutes that is used for tutor periods is far from productive in some circumstances since it can consist of minimal positive interaction and can instead promote misbehaviour. Life, social and relationship problems seen as vital lessons in tutor periods can be identified less useful especially to senior students who have greater experience from earlier lessons and knowledge, therefore should be allocated to a certain day, a period no more than once a month in the latest to discuss these issues.
Through removal of tutor period, not only could we reduce school hours but realistically extend expected study time per week which is suggested by the school to be at least twenty hours, being more beneficial.
The Moorings Bar in Aberdeen is a live music bar venue established in 1965 and has been under the present ownership since March 2002. It has a capacity of less than 200 and hosts live music on Saturday and Sunday evenings, with alternative DJs on Friday evenings.
The bar was awarded Town Pub of the Year 2008 by the local CAMRA branch, and also picked up Live Music Venue of the Year in 2006, 2007, 2008, and 2009 at the local Fudge Music Awards.
Currently the bar closes at midnight Sunday - Thursday and 1am Friday and Saturday. There are no nearby venues with a late license that cater for the social demographic that frequent the bar, leaving them with a limited choice of destination after the bar shuts, particularly at weekends.
Over the course of the last two years the bar has substantially upgraded it's soundproofing and decreased it's maximum noise emissions down to level of existing background noise. The bar also has one of the best safety records in the city with negligible impact on police resources. All full time staff are personal license holders and there is at least one personal license holder on duty at all times.
The bar would like to remain open till 3am on Friday's and Saturdays, with it's Sunday-Thursday opening times remaining unchanged. All live music would cease before 1am, and only recorded music would be played by DJs after 1am. Live music would only feature at the weekend. Plastic glassware would come into force after 1am, or earlier if the bar is nearing capacity (as is presently the case).
Mr. Michael Sanchez who's been enrolled in college and has completed all his classes recently registered for 12 credit hours for the Fall semester 2009.
During this time, Michael was picked by MTV to cover his journey in finding his daughter, since michael began his journey to locate his daughter, he will be unable to complete his 12 credit hours that he registered for.
Michael has tried his best to complete all courses but he will be unable to do so this semester.
We need to try to change the law that took effect as of 1st July 2007. The new law states that anyone who renewed they're learner license or applied for it on or after 1st July 2007 has to complete 100 hours logbooked!
Changes for Queensland learner licence holders aged
under 25 years of age from 1 July 2007 include:
• lowering the minimum age of obtaining a learner
licence to 16 but lengthening the requirement to
hold a learner licence to 12 months. Learner
licences are now valid for 3 years.
• gaining 100 hours of supervised on-road driving
experience recorded and certified in a logbook,
including 10 hours of night driving experience.
The worst thing is you are exempt from this if you were 25 or over as of july 1st 2007. Every year after this date the age of exemption increases. eg:
-2008 is 26 years and over
-2009 is 27 years and over
so on and so forth.
The Government stuffed up. Had they actually thought this through properly, they would have realised it would be wise to make it as follows:
This law effects anyone who applies for their learners as of the 1st of July 2007 and people who already had their learners license at the time of this law coming into affect is exempt.
Those of us who depend upon the bus system for transportation would like to see expanded hours especially during special events such as Summer Motion. This would help with grocery shopping, attending events, taking evening classes at ACC and attending special events in the park.
Shannock RI was a country town until a trucking company moved onto West Shannock Road. We would like an end to the trailer trucks coming down our Roads in Shannock. This company has ruined our town with all the noise coming from them (It appears to be some kind of gravel pit), the trucks coming down our roads all hours of the day and polluting our air with the exhaust coming from these trucks. The Zoning needs to be re-evaluated.
From 1 July 2007 the Queensland Government introduced a new graduated licensing system to reduce fatalities on our roads, particularly among young motorists. Young drivers aged 17-24 are twice as likely to be involved in fatal crashes than drivers aged between 25-59. That is why the Queensland Government introduced new laws to change the licensing system for young drivers.
The new changes introduced by Queensland Transport included the introduction of a logbook system to ensure learners get a good balance of experience before they drive solo on the road. Learner drivers are required to complete 100 hours of supervised on-road driving experience.
The extension of the learner period to 12 months and the completion of 100 hours of driving experience will expose learners to driving in various road conditions. During this time, they gain valuable experience, including driving at night. The requirement to accumulate 100 hours of supervised on-road driving experience before undertaking a practical driving assessment highlights the importance of the learner licence stage and ensures the learner accumulates extensive driving experience under a range of driving conditions before applying for a provisional licence.
Since the changes in law, many young people in state care face many barriers when trying to obtain their driving licence, such as foster carers not having enough time, residentials not having insurance for young people to drive company or youth worker owned cars and the average driving lesson costing $47 an hour and the likelihood of the Department of Child Safety providing an average of $4700 for each young person wanting to access there licence isn't high either.
The opening hours of St Johns College library are far too restrictive. We recognise that students, in order to be properly supported in their academic studies, need access to essential materials whatever their working habits.
The college may argue that students shouldn't be studying late at night, but this stance simply fails to recognise that individuals know when they themselves work most effectively, and we believe that the college should endeavour to facilitate the study patterns of every student.
The college may argue that extending opening hours is expensive, reflecting the cost of lost books and additional overheads. We would point to that fact that Keble College incurs no additional staffing costs by providing a self-service "check out" system to allow students to take out books during non-staffing hours. Also, books can be protected by simple measures such as CCTV in the foyer, and locking up valuble and rare books during non-staffing hours.
The college may also claim that libraries that aren't constantly staffed quickly become untidy. However, tidiness is more a question of how well a library's rules are followed, and with sufficient staff enforcement, extended opening hours need not result in mess, as Magdalen college library exemplifies.
During peak travel hours (7A-9AM then 4:30P-6:30PM) ban bicycle transport in the Riverline cars.
Bicycles are a hazzard duing these hours and are a concern for the safety and comfort of its passangers.
SAFER STREETS FOR HILL HEALTH CENTER – COLUMBUS AVE. OFFICE
As a supporter of this petition, I am hereby requesting that the City of New Haven get involved in assisting to resolve the continual problem of speeding traffic that we are experiencing, hoping to gain the respect for the crosswalk that is in front of the Hill Health Center on Columbus Ave and Surrounding territories.
Our Center serves over 150,000 patients a year and it is vitally important to us to follow up with the safety of the patients and together as a community begin to make the necessary changes in this crosswalk zone. It would be devastating to have someone get hurt or killed before something positive happens and in order to avoid this, I sincerely urge the City of New Haven to enforce a method of safety (perhaps a stop light) for our patients who remain at risk.

Why? Because children are being pushed too hard and need a break.
School lasts too long for middle and high schoolers.
I say we abandon at least 2 hours and shorten it up. We have rights to our own lives.
I believe that we, as adolescents, should be able to spend more time doing what we decide to do by ourselves instead of being consumed in nothing but school type activities.
In regard to the recent abortion of a H.O.A. meeting you held last week.
To the majority leaders of the H.O.A, I truly hope that there is a way to recall
everything that you have done.
Maybe the community should start looking at alternative ways to resolve the problems we have within the H.O.A with other means of leadership.
In the last meeting the majority agreed to let RV's park in the H.O.A. for a "brief period" up to 24 hours. Gentlemen the word "brief" is described in any
dictionary as a "short duration", not 24 hours. The majority then added to this
insult to confuse the issue even more and let emergency work be done to an
RV, which is a conflict in the CCR's as it is clearly stated "no work can be
performed on any vehicle".
In an effort to reduce the rise of on the job injuries, and to also establish the Four Winds Casino as a company who is advancing the cause of environmental awareness, the beverage staff of the Four Winds Casino would like to submit into writing a petition requesting shortened work-weeks with extended working hours for scheduled shifts.
The request is two-fold and is stated as follows:
1. We believe an established four-day work week with 9 or 10 hour days per shift for full-time employees will provide the beverage staff with a needed reprieve to obtain proper physical rest especially after so many consecutive business promotions. These promotions are vital to the success of the company, so being properly rested would be nothing but advantageous to the company as a whole and the beverage servers especially will have more time to rest their arms, backs, wrists and legs so they may be more productive on the floor.
We believe that by shortening the work week, not only will the above conditions create a more productive team, but there will be less call-offs. Multiple call-offs have been the result of extreme fatigue especially during casino promotions. The lack of appropriate staff has not only resulted in an inability to ensure exceptional guest service to our patrons, but beverage employees are already experiencing "burnout" which we believe can be combated once the work-week is condensed.
2. By decreasing the five-day work week to a four-day work week, the Four Winds Casino will be instrumental in promoting environmental awareness as employees will no longer be required to drive in on day number five to work a four-hour shift before receiving an early-out.
We believe that with gas prices increasing and environmental conditions being a factor, bringing people in to work to send them home four hours later is economically wasteful and environmentally unfriendly.
The Nike sweat shop has so many poor working conditions, and very low wages. The people who work there (mostly children) work six days a week, for $2.60 a day and work ten hours a day.
One of Nike slogans is Strength, stamina and courage, they also say No one said it was going to be easy, but nothing worth while is. A young girl named Sasha works ten hours a day non stop sewing soccer balls. Ashmed and Bira there aged 29 and 10 work 12 hours non stop putting the shoe lasses in shoes. Amir aged 11 cleans up the sweat shop for 10 hours a day. Nike also says“greatness comes with a price, do you have what it takes. The Sweat shop its not just 20 cents an hour it an athletic adventure”.
You can make a difference. Help shut Nike down.
A petition to allow students to wear hats during school hours.
This petition asks the current practice by the Licensing Police of imposing blanket liquor restrictions including midnite lockouts, barring drink & entertainment styles on all late night trading entertainment within designated areas be ceased.
It asks for the numbers of police on active duty at night to be increased to address the wealth of late night violence on the streets which is not related to patrons of late night entertainment venues trading. Many times they the victims of this unrelated violence.
This petition seeks to support all Entertainment Venue Licensees who display good RSA practices to maintain the right to continue trading normal, approved business hours, regardless of location.
A College Education is a very valuable asset in Life, and more importantly the labour force. The degree also gives you a voice, and makes people take notice. Your opinion is an educated one and therefore respected. There is a trend, however, that may take a way your voice away. That is the increase in tuition fee's over the last sixteen years.
In British Columbia the average tuition fee has increased by $3152 over the last sixteen years. Kwantlen has always been the forefront of great education for a lowered tuition, but even it has faced the increase in tuition fees. Are we not worth it? Does our generation not require an education? One answer to this problem would be to obtain a student loan, but loans only breed debt.
Over 45% of College students will be in debt after college. The average debt has grown from $ 10,800-19,000 in just 10 years, and one out of seven bachelor graduates will owe $ 25,000 in debt. A student could work to pay his tuition, but with tuition increasing as it is it would take a lot of hours per week. These hours would detract from time spent studying, and possibly impairing academic performance. Moreover, studies have shown that students working twenty hours or more are likely to drop out.
By dropping out the student just lost possibly $600,000 over a life time and decrease his chances of employment by 6 percent. More importantly he just lost his voice. Let your Voice be heard, and let the government know that tuition fee’s need to be reduced.
Stand Up For Your Right! Sign the Petition and let Legislators know that You are Worth a Great Education! And That You Refuse To Become Just Another Statistic!
We have been trying to get a company, Angelus Block, the GARDENA PLANT, 252 E. Redondo Beach. Blvd.
Gardena, CA 90248, (310) 323-8841, FAX (310) 327-2291, to stop making noise 24 hours a day. They have refused to honor our request claiming they have permits that allow them to do as they please.
Our research shows that they are in violation, complaints have been made and we have yet to get a sustained resolution to the problem. Zoning Enforcement, Section I, County of Los Angeles Dept. of Regional Planning, 320 W. Temple St.,Los Angeles, CA 90012 has rendered the following,
"The Conditonal Use Permint (CUP) for the property 252 E. Redondo Beach Blvd. is current. Unfortunately, in reviewing the conditions placed on the business by the CUP, none of the conditions address your concerns. There are no conditions that limit the hours of operation.
Nonetheless, while the CUP gives Angelus Block the right to operate, it by no means gives them the right to operate through the night. If the current operation is in violation of other sections of the County Code, they should be enforced. If the property owner has stated that he has a permit that allows him to operate at night, then that is incorrect and because hours of operation is not part of the conditions placed on the property, it does not give them the right to operate at any hour if it violates the County Code, such as Title 13. Therefore steps can be taken to make Angelus Block comply with the other sections of the County Code."
The materials used to manufacture bricks, concrete, ete contains hazardous material which infiltrate the lungs and Angelus Block does not make any attempts to contain those materials.
Mayfair Mall managed by GGP(General Growth Properties) has implimented (starting the beginning of this year) to open its mall doors at 8am instead of the old 10am.
We as workers have done so and realized that we are not making any sales or money and it seems the management has failed to grasp this at all and is not listening to its tennants.
The addition of Canal Uno Internacional to COMCAST line-up would give potential Ecuadorian and fast-growing Hispanic audience more options and diverse high-quality, Spanish-language programming.
Canal Uno Internacional offers exclusive live coverage of most Ecuadorian National Championship soccer games every Saturday and Sunday, with six hours of programming featuring commentary from Fabian Gallardo, Carlos Victor Morales and Andres Guschmer.
The channel line-up also includes four hours of daily news and entertainment programming and 12 hours of weekly sports programs, all broadcast live.
The dress code in Queen Ann's County High School states that we can not wear racial or drug related attire. So I recommended that our school allow the students to wear there hats during school hours.
We have One day a semester we are allowed to wear our hats(hat day) but what is the difference if we could wear them everyday. As long as they are appropiate for our school dress code.
