We were encouraged that we would be surrounded by other NGOs rather than corporate organisations”.“Affordability and location are the primary reasons why our customers come to CAN Mezzanine,” said Peter Murray of CAN Mezzanine. “We run quality buildings with business efficiency, passing on as many benefits to our customers as possible. But being a charity ourselves, we understand the needs of our customers and can offer something more tailored”.Plans are underway to open a third site in north London later in the year and a feasibility study is being undertaken for a CAN Mezzanine in east Croydon.www.can-online.org.uk 26 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis

Required fields are marked * Business News Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Name (required) Mail (required) (not be published) Website Top of the News Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Community News Suicide is a Major Concern During the COVID-19 Pandemic Published on Wednesday, September 9, 2020 | 12:01 pm Suicide claims the lives of over 44,000 Americans each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. However, with isolation and people’s lives upended by the spread of the coronavirus, the COVID-19 pandemic is presenting added challenges that may cause more people to contemplate ending their lives, a mental health expert warns.With September being National Suicide Prevention & Awareness Month, it’s important to have a better understanding of how the pandemic is negatively affecting many people’s mental health due to job losses, the loss of a loved one, as well as financial hardship and anxiety that may lead to depression and substance abuse. These factors can lead to thoughts of suicide.“The need to quarantine in social isolation has made people feel more detached from each other,” explained Anabel Basulto, a licensed marriage and family therapist with Kaiser Permanente Southern California. “Humans are social beings by nature, and isolation has made it difficult for many of us to cope. Suicide has increasingly become an issue during this pandemic with increased financial and relationship stressors. Suicide is an equal opportunity aggressor that affects people of all genders, races and age. We need to pay more attention to symptoms, and seek immediate help when needed.”According to the CDC, for every death by suicide, there are over 25 suicide attempts. Suicide is also the 4th leading cause of death for people ages 18-65, and men are four times more likely than women to die by suicide.Basulto, who has noticed an increase in the number of patients seeking assistance with their mental health due to the pandemic, explained that suicide is a state when individuals feel hopeless and helpless about a given situation, such COVID-19. Suicide can a be a passive or active thought, and neither one is more important than the other, as passive thoughts can quickly become active.“A passive thought might be, ‘I wish I would not wake up’, whereas an active thought is more direct like, ‘I want to die,’ ” she explained. “There are many factors that play into someone feeling this way and acting on those feelings. A history of mental illness and substance abuse puts individuals more at-risk of suicide.”Basulto listed the following warning signs that may indicate someone is at-risk of suicide:• Someone tells you they have passive or active thoughts about ending their life.• A person begins to isolate or avoid others.• An individual begins to give away possessions or belongings.• A person collects pills or weapons with the intent to use them.• Someone searches the internet for articles on how to commit suicide.• Increased substance abuse.• Changes in behavior (especially in children).Basulto recommended doing the following to help someone who displays red flags when it comes to committing suicide:• Reach out and don’t be dismissive of someone’s feelings in pain.• Be open to communicate about what is bothering them.• Help them create a safety plan containing phone numbers and names they can call in case of a mental health emergency.• Create a plan for self-care engaging in healthier lifestyles with better nutrition and exercise.• Seek help/psychotherapy. Many medical professionals can help with mental and psychiatric care.• Avoid alcohol and other mind-altering substances.“What’s important to understand is that suicide is preventable and help is available,” Basulto stressed. “There’s no doubt that many people’s mental health is suffering right now. That’s why it’s so important to look for warning signs and seek help as soon as possible.”The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is available 24 hours a day in English and Spanish by calling 1-800-273-8255.Provided by Kaiser Permanente Southern California Region Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

In the third estimate for Q1, exports decreased less than previously estimated while personal consumptions and expenditures increased more than previously estimated, according to the BEA. In the fourth quarter last year, real GDP increased at an annual rate of 2.2 percent.”The decrease in real GDP in the first quarter primarily reflected negative contributions from exports, nonresidential fixed investment, and state and local government spending that were partly offset by positive contributions from PCE, private inventory investment, and residential fixed investment,” the BEA said in its report.According to Fannie Mae’s National Housing Survey for May 2015 released earlier this week, the majority of mortgage lenders (61 percent) believe that the economy is on the right track, while 29 percent said they believed it was on the wrong track.”This sanguine view of the economy is held by mortgage lenders of all sizes, larger institutions, mid-sized institutions, and smaller institutions,” said Michael Neal, senior economist with the National Home Builders’ Association (NAHB).While more than half of lenders said they thought the economy is on the right track, Neal said, “However, a greater proportion of mid-sized lenders reported this kind of optimism. Furthermore, while still holding optimistic views, a greater percentage of larger institutions than smaller institutions believe that the U.S. economy is on the ‘wrong track.’ Smaller lenders were more likely to be unsure of current economic conditions.”Many consumers did not share the same sentiment regarding the economy as mortgage lenders – only 38 percent of consumers said they believe the U.S. economy is on the right track, compared with 52 percent who said they believe it is on the wrong track, according to Fannie Mae’s survey. But according to Neal, “Improving labor market conditions and income growth should help improve consumer moods.” About Author: Brian Honea

In order to meet the near-term critical manning needs of the Fleet, the Navy will curtail shore duty for select Sailors that have the required skills needed at sea, Navy officials announced in NAVADMIN 227/12, released July 26.This Limited Directed Detailing initiative is part of the Navy’s coordinated effort to aggressively address gaps at sea and place Sailors with the right experience levels and skill sets into high-priority Fleet billets.To respond to real-world events, Navy deployment schedules have changed, resulting in a greater need to quickly fill near-term, critical billets afloat. To meet this need, during the next few months the Navy will detail selected Sailors back to operational sea duty early. The limited directed detailing initiative will target between 200-400 Sailors who have the required skills, leadership and experience needed at sea now to improve manning on Navy’s imminent deployers.“We’re working aggressively to fulfill the demand signal from the Fleet to achieve fit and to match Sailors with the right skill sets in sea-going billets,” said Chief of Naval Personnel Vice Adm. Scott R. Van Buskirk. “We use a variety of long-term and voluntary initiatives to support our sea-going force. Now, while these actions begin to take traction, we’ve determined that we need to take additional measures to reduce these gaps at sea. Limited directed detailing is meant to be an interim policy to further improve fleet manning and readiness by filling critical jobs at sea with the right Sailors. In most ratings, this action will only impact a few Sailors.”Under the limited directed detailing initiative, Sailors who have completed a minimum of 24 months on shore duty may be contacted by their detailer and directed back to a sea duty assignment prior to their projected rotation date.Sailors who have been on shore duty the longest will generally be considered first for limited directed detailing. Whenever possible, geographic stability will be maintained if desired by the selected Sailor. Additionally, Sailors who are impacted by this directed detailing initiative will receive lump sum monetary compensation.Sailors that already possess a required Navy Enlisted Classification (NEC) will be chosen for directed detailing unless training is available and can be completed prior to the Sailor’s required reporting date. While no shore commands or specific billets are exempt from limited directed detailing, Sailors currently filling selected billets or assigned to certain commands will be considered after all others, as specified in NAVADMIN 227/12.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, July 31, 2012; Image: US Navy View post tag: needs View post tag: sea View post tag: Detailing View post tag: fill View post tag: Initiative View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Directed July 31, 2012 View post tag: Limited Back to overview,Home naval-today USA: Limited Directed Detailing Initiative to Help Fill Critical Needs at Sea View post tag: Help USA: Limited Directed Detailing Initiative to Help Fill Critical Needs at Sea View post tag: Navy Share this article View post tag: Naval View post tag: Critical Training & Education
Mr. Kongoli’s virtual silence under the Hoxha regime is all the more poignant because he is careful to stress that he is not solely or primarily a political writer. The Loser never mentions Hoxha or the communists by name, though the protagonist eventually falls victim to the skewed justice system of the Party. Regarding more recent political issues, I ask Kongoli whether he intends to write anything about Kosovo, a subject which has preoccupied notable Albanian authors such as Ismail Kadaré. ‘Leave it to the historians,’ he replies, adding that he has other fish to fry. Mr. Kongoli is happiest instead when talking about his characters and his literary technique. Though Kongoli describes writing as the process of forgetting everything but ‘you and the white page,’ The Loser is deeply influenced by the French existentialists Camus and Sartre as well as by similarly bleak literary greats like Kafka and Dostoevsky. The novel, set half in the seventies and half in the nineties, follows the travails of a young Albanian by the name of Thesar Lumi. Bound for a freer Italy aboard a refugee boat, he chooses instead, almost inexplicably, to disembark and return to his dreary and stagnant homeland. The remainder of the novel recounts his motives and his past, in which the communist elite persecuted him at every turn and put an end to his forbidden affair with a prominent widow. Thesar Lumi is a curious creation, more a witness or accomplice to the actions of others than an active agent in himself. Mr. Kongoli confirms that his choice of protagonist was deliberate; Lumi is ‘neither a hero nor a revolutionary,’ distinguished chiefly by his capacity to think, reflect, and suffer. Lumi’s sense of the futility and absurdity of life elevates him from a mere product of his place and time to an emblem for all young people robbed of their potential by a repressive environment. Translated from Albanian by Robert Elsie and Janice Mathie-Heck, The Loser is now available on amazon.co.uk and scheduled for a full international release in April 2008. Mr. Kongoli says that he would love to see more of his books in English editions, but for the moment he is at the mercy of the public and of his publisher. For now, he offers an earnest thanks to the people of Oxford and of the other English institutions which have welcomed him. by Emily Packer With thanks to Miranda Dawkins for interpreting the interview. With the help of a student translator – St. Hilda’s linguist Miranda Dawkins – I spoke to Mr. Kongoli at the Maison Francaise, where he was preparing for a reading from The Loser, the first of his novels to be translated into English. (Mr. Kongoli speaks French but not English, and I English but not French, so regrettably I shall be unable to render many direct quotations). Mr. Kongoli is a thoughtful, unpretentious man who values precision and individualism. Asked about the greatest problems facing Albania’s youth today, he comments that the question is too broad to be answered adequately; an inquiry about the country’s literary culture meets with much the same result. Though his name may not yet be familiar to Anglophone audiences, Albanian Fatos Kongoli is one of Eastern Europe’s most celebrated literary exports. His books, seven in all, have been translated into French, German, Italian, Greek, and Slovak. His novel The Loser (I Humburi) earned a Writers in Translation award from the International PEN Foundation this year. In the article ‘A Literature Review – Borderland,’ authors Jens Becker and Achim Engelberg report: ‘Whoever wants to improve their understanding of Albania will be unable to avoid Fatos Kongoli’ (South-East Europe Review, 1/2004). Though Mr. Kongoli is hesitant to make sweeping statements about his countrymen, his personal history provides us with material for discussion enough. Kongoli hails from one of the most interesting nations in Eastern Europe. Ruled by hardline communist Enver Hoxha from the 1950s to the 1980s, Albania broke early from the Soviet Union and allied itself, alone, with China, where Mr. Kongoli studied between 1961 and 1964. Indeed, Mr. Kongoli singles out this period as one of the most important of his life;. He was shocked by the poverty endemic there, but deeply moved by the welcome he received from the ‘magical’ people. Yet in time the alliance with China crumbled too, and throughout much of the seventies and eighties Albanians endured frequent penury and political isolation. Mr. Kongoli protested against the dictatorship, and ensured his own safety, by refusing to publish seriously until the end of Communist rule, instead whiling away his spare time in extensive reading and pursuing a career as a mathematician, because ‘there was no Marxist strategy for mathematicians.’ His father, a violinist and Communist, impressed upon him the precarious position of artists in a dogmatic state.
