Still no time off for religious observance: Gareddu in the EAT

The issue of whether or not attendance at religious festivals in Sardinia could be a genuine manifestation of religion or religious belief been rehearsed again, before an Employment Appeal Tribunal. Mr Gareddu, a Roman Catholic from Sardinia, claimed that his religious beliefs required him to return to Sardinia each year for approximately five weeks around the month of August to take part in religious festivals with his family [3]. Before the ET, London Underground had conceded that participating in religious festivals in Sardinia might constitute a manifestation of Mr Gareddu’s religious belief; however, the Tribunal was not convinced that Mr Gareddu’s assertion that his beliefs required attendance at a series of religious festivals during the period 27 July to 2 September was made in good faith. if so, whether such disadvantage was justified as a proportionate means of achieving a legitimate aim. On counts (ii) and (iii), the ET had acted properly in limiting its enquiry to determining whether or not the particular manifestation contended for – attendance at a series of festivals over a five-week period in August – was genuine.

The skills that matter in the race between education and technology

There is a critical skills gap Technology rapidly changes the workplace and the skills demanded, immediately making current workers less employable. Meanwhile, education systems are slow to change in terms of the creation of new skills. As the demand for new skills increases, the challenge will be to anticipate what those skills might be. For some the answer is science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) skills as well as coding so that people can develop or work with the technology. An alternative approach is to think about the kind of work that technology cannot replace. The Oxford Martin School stud­ies the vulnerability of jobs to automation point to those that draw most on creative and social skills, and complex perception and manipulation. Future workers need to make themselves “im­mune” to automation as much as possible. I believe that this does not mean that basic skills do not matter. In fact, we are seeing high returns to cognitive skills, especially non-routine skills. These skills are: Problem-solving skills to think critically and analyze Learning skills to acquire new knowledge Communication skills, including reading and writing Personal skills for self-management, making sound judgments and managing risks Social skills for collaboration, teamwork, management, leadership, and conflict resolution

D: History

The Pioneering Feminist, Freethinker and Abolitionist History Forgot (And then Found)

By Bonnie S. Anderson In the 1850s, Ernestine Rose was one of the most famous women in America - far better known than her co-workers Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony. An outstanding orator in an era when women seldom spoke publicly, Rose had "As great a power to chain an audience as any of our best male speakers," a New York newspaper declared. Best-known for being a "Woman's rights woman," as feminists were then called, Rose was equally passionate about the abolition of slavery. During Rose's time in the United States, there were only 150,000 Jews out of a population of 31.5 million in 1860 and most Americans never would have met a Jewish person. First, Lucy Stone, a co-worker in women's rights, wrote Susan B. Anthony criticizing Rose for looking Jewish, being avaricious and concerned only with herself. Rose's closest friend in the movement, paid no attention and soon afterwards backed Rose's becoming President of the 1854 National Woman's Rights Convention. Despite her atheism, Jewish groups continued to champion her - the first biography of Rose, written in the 1950s, was sponsored by Jewish Women's Clubs. In 1871, the Boston Investigator predicted that Ernestine Rose would be appreciated "In about a hundred years," a prediction which came true in large part because of the revived women's movement of the 1970s. Thanks to the contributions of historians of women over the last fifty years, figures like Ernestine Rose are now part of the American narrative…
