first_imgEurostat says UK nationals have the longest average working week at 43.6 hours, while Belgians on average work five hours less per week, at 38.5 hours. The EU average is 40.3 hours.The figures are included in the Community labour force survey, published this week, which evaluates employment trends in Europe.According to the report, 158.4 million people had full and part-time jobs in the EU in spring 2000, up by 2.9 million over last year. This represents an employment rate of 63.1%. The Stockholm summit in March set an overall employment target of 67% for 2005, with a specific target of 57% for women. Seven member states have achieved this goal – Denmark, the Netherlands, Austria, Portugal, Finland, Sweden and the United Kingdom.Apart from Denmark and Austria, where employment rates were virtually unchanged, employment went up in every EU nation between 1998 and 2000.However, Italy, Spain and Greece still lag a long way behind with overall employment rates of 53.4%, 54.7% and 55% respectively.Across Europe, women hold around one job in three overall, but close to eight out of every ten part-time jobs.last_img read more

Court’s Verdict: Stuffed Dog An Illegal Sign

first_imgThere was a split decision in the case of the East Hampton Village store owner who had a stuffed dog with a welcome sign around its neck outside her shop on Park Place. In a verdict written on February 28 and shared via fax on Monday, East Hampton Town Justice Lisa Rana found the owner of Petit Blue, Colleen Moeller, not guilty of illegally displaying merchandise outside the entrance to her store on Park Place, but guilty of violating East Hampton Village zoning code regarding signage.A code enforcement officer for the village, Robert Jahoda, wrote the charges up against Moeller on November 8. Moeller’s attorney, Daniel Rodgers, did not dispute certain facts in the case, including that Moeller had placed two large plush stuffed dogs outside her toy store, along with a chalkboard for children to write on. On one of the stuffed animals, a Golden Retriever that Moeller said during her testimony was named “Happy” by her daughter, had a wooden welcome sign around his neck.Rodgers did dispute, and Moeller affirmed in her testimony during the trial, which lasted a bit over an hour, that neither of the stuffed dogs outside the shop were for sale. Rana agreed.Moeller also told the court that she had placed the dogs outside the shop because, during the offseason, so many stores in the village are closed that she wanted to show hers was open.Rana found the placement of the dogs on the stairwell to the shop with the sign hanging on one “was to attract the attention of the public,” and therefore was not allowed under the village code, which, she wrote, prohibits such signage or advertising structure.Rodgers said in an email that the sign section of the code was crafted over a century ago.“Over a century later, particularly with competition from online retailers, this law related to brick-and-mortar business ‘attracting the attention of the public’ seems entirely inappropriate, meaningless, and mean-spirited,” he said.Sentencing, which could include a fine of up to $500, and, theoretically, a jail sentence of 15 days, will take place on March [email protected] Sharelast_img read more

Bryan Cranston reveals he had COVID-19 and films himself donating his plasma

first_imgABC(LOS ANGELES) — Bryan Cranston is loudly asking the public to take the COVID-19 pandemic seriously after disclosing his personal battle with the virus.The Breaking Bad star revealed on Thursday that, even though he abided by all the proper social distancing guidelines, he still caught the novel coronavirus.“I was pretty strict in adhering to the protocols and still… I contracted the virus,” Cranston penned in the lengthy caption of his video PSA.  “Yep. it sounds daunting now that over 150,000 Americans are dead because of it.”Thankfully, the 64-year-old actor admitted he was “one of the lucky ones” because he suffered from “Mild symptoms.”  In a banner that played beneath his video, he revealed,  “My symptoms were a slight headache, tightness of chest and I lost all taste and smell!”The six-time Emmy winner, who says he caught the virus “early,” cautioned that “The symptoms show up differently for everyone it seems.”“Keep wearing the damn mask, keep washing your hands, and stay socially distant,” Cranston lectured. “We can prevail – but ONLY if we follow the rules together.”In addition to beating the coronavirus, the Malcolm in the Middle alum documented himself donating his plasma, which has COVID-19 antibodies, to the UCLA Blood and Platelet Center in order to help others beat the illness. Cranston seemed to have fun poking fun at the doctor drawing his blood before settling down to watch old movies to pass the time because “The whole process takes an hour.”When the process was finished, the actor donated 840ml of plasma.  He then vowed to donate more as soon as he’s able.Cranston hoped his video would inspire those who know they battled COVID-19 to consider donating their plasma, as well.  “Be well – Stay well,” he concluded.By Megan StoneCopyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
